Another great experience, celebrating a birthday. Enjoyed sitting outside at the bar prior to our dinner. Staff is attentive and provide superior service. We were Raziya's first customer and she was outstanding. Knowledgeable and friendly. Grilled Octopus was fabulous to start and the scallops and salmon did not disappoint. Nice wine by the glass too for those who don't want a full bottle. We will be back!

I have been dining at Stone House for years. Prices have gone up over the years but recently seem to have taken a giant leap. While prices have risen, food quality and service have not improved to justify the price increases. Given the recent big jump in prices, it is not likely that I will be going back.

We had a delicious salmon and half chicken. We also had a vegetable ravioli. This was a amazing food and personally I loved the salmon.

Easter dinner - great food, especially for a buffet. I liked our table but would not have been happy sitting in the room where the food was located. It reminded me of a wedding.

We had reservations and out table was not ready for 25 minutes past the Rez. The white wine was warm. The food took an hour and 45 min. Had 8 pm Rez got food at 10 pm. The server was no where to be found. Food finally came cold and not cooked to order. Overall very bad experience.

It’s been a few years since we’ve been here but hubby and I wanted to come back given our pleasant experience years ago. We ended up getting seated 45 min after our open table reservation. And didn’t end up getting our main course until another hour later. It seems like a one-off unfortunately situation. Our waitress was terrific and the hostesses were apologetic but helpless and manager came by later and comped us for the meal. We insisted on getting charged something so we could take care of our waitress - it wasn’t her fault. But I don’t think I’ll come back for a while since there are so many other great options near where we are like Summit House and Jockey Hollow and several others. But eventually we’ll probably come back because food is actually decent and location is beautiful. Very noisy though but overall ambience is ok.

While the atmosphere was nice, the menu was fairly ordinary and the food was just ok. Not as good as other choices at similar price points.

I used to love this place. I won’t be back after tonight. 4 of us each had an entree, split 2 appetizers that were literally both a combined total of 4 pieces of sushi (one bite for each of us), one soup, 3 coffees, one glass of wine. Bill was $67 for each. The entrees were average at best - one salmon, 2 duck, one scallops. The service - the water guy kept interrupting every 2 seconds stopping our conversation to ask if we wanted more water but our waiter was never around. The one glass of wine they poured from a bottle of Joel Gotts- really ? average food, cheap wine, non-existent service. You’d expect better at those prices. Wow. What a bust.

Today was the first time I have ever been disappointed at the service. The extra wine glasses were never removed from the table therefor making it crowded. After getting our appetizers our plates sat there until I stacked them in the middle. I would have drank more wine but the waiter was missing in action. So disappointing

We were recommended Stone House as a top restaurant and since it was our anniversary we gave it a try. We got there at our appointed reservation time to find our table was not ready and it would be about a 15 min wait. This turned into a 40min wait with no explanation as to why it was taking so long given we had a reservation. We were not alone as another group behind us also had to wait a similar length of time. Clearly SH find this acceptable practice. Eventually we were seated next to a door to a patio area but told not to worry as nobody would be going out through the door. Not so. Several staff continually went in and out. Being early April it was a cold wind. The one bright spot was our server was excellent and very attentive. The food was good but not outstanding. Considering it arrived now 90 min after our arrival not what I would call a fine dining experience. We will not be back.

Food, service and atmosphere was great. The place is beautiful. We came a little early to have drinks, and our only disappointment was that even with the weather very nice, the outdoor bar was still closed. To make matters worse the indoor bar in the restaurant was jam packed full with a wedding party. We were initially forced to try to order drinks and then go sit outside where there was no service and the outdoor seating area had not been cleaned up from the last time the outdoor bar was open.

Historically my favorite local restaurant in NJ. I would be shocked if I haven’t been here over a hundred times. Friday during my wife’s birthday celebration the waiter said after we entered our appetizer order that it wouldn’t be submitted Until we placed our entree order.

Frankly I don’t write reviews but that was so strange. When I told him that made no sense he said it is more efficient for the kitchen.

I’m not mad. I was actually comical. I hope that efficiency is worth loosing a ten year customer and a huge promoter.

Char, Water and Wine and Luke’s will have to be my new go to when I don’t want to drive to Salt or Clydes because when you drop $250 on dinner it’s MY way or the highway !

Couple who joined my wife & I for dinner were not happy with the way steak was cut. My friends wife grew up on a ranch in Texas & commented that steaks become chewy & tough to eat when they are cut against the grain. I don’t think our server understood or even provided the feedback to chef else expected him at our table. Server & his helpers had no clue as to the difference between a regular spoon vs soup spoon when my wife asked for it. Overall not likely to go back

We had reservations at 8pm, we got there at 8:03 and we were told to wait for our seats, at 8:30 we were still not seated. Then they seated us finally after my husband complained, and they sat us next to the open kitchen which has constant fumes and smells of cooking. We were very unhappy with the accommodations of this restaurant.
