This was a planned dinner with special friends. We have dined many times before at Steve and Cookies with our children and with our friends. It is without a doubt one of our favorite places to dine. We enjoy tremendously sitting at the bar and speaking with Bruce. He is engaging and doesn't mind our questions. He is friendly and does a fantastic job!!! Our waitress was welcoming and friendly as well. She took care of all of our requests and drinks just perfectly!!!

Our food as always was delicious. The filet and cowboy steaks were done to perfection. The selection of veggies (brussel sprouts, roasted butternut squash and escarole with beans) were just delicious.

It is our daughter's favorite place so we also purchased her a gift certificate to enjoy with her husband.

Thank you for a great dining experience!!!

I waited all winter for them to bring back the pan roasted seafood medley. It was well worth the wait. Sweet, moist and delicious! My husband had his favorite, meatloaf. We’ve already made several reservations to come back in the coming weeks. Stave & Cookie’s never disappoints. 👍👍👍👍

The service was great, food was mostly delicious. The crab cakes (no filler) and the salad that came with were phenomenal. My only complaint would be that the lobster in the lobster Mac & Cheese was a little over cooked therefore a little rubbery. The Mac & cheese itself had great flavor. A suggestion would be to take the peppers out of the crab imperial, they take over the flavor of what would be a delicious cheese sauce in a classic dish. All in all, great evening and I’m sure we will be back.

One of the best restaurants anywhere. We have eaten here many times and never disappointed. The menu is always fresh yet the traditional favorites are always there. I cannot say enough about how pleased we were with our meal last night. All eight people raved about their dishes and the desserts were delectable. Can't wait till we get back to this excellent restaurant again.

Pleasantly surprised by an ambient dining room with a nice view of the bay (not all tables have a great view). Noise increased as room filled, however, the noise treatment applications on the ceiling are noted and appreciated. Most of all, great food. Ingredients were excellent, considerable creativity was evident, and portions were ample. Service was intelligent and attractive. Reservation was over Easter weekend; we were told that Passover was priority.

It may not be easy to get a reservation but there is a reason why. The food and service are superior. George, the sommelier, knows his wines and with Cookie, they make you feel like a welcomed guest.

I made 2 requests on open table which were taken care of without having to ask again which I appreciated. The food was excellent as usual (I’ve been here dozens of times). I liked the option of getting a small plate. I like variety so instead of getting a second crab cake I had the escarole and white bean side dish also delicious.
