It is more a a lunch place or very casual family dinner. I would stick to the sandwiches and salads and maybe not the more pricey plates. I ordered the salmon and was disappointed in it.

How can you mess up a chicken ceasar salad??? You have to park a distance to get to Stonegrill unless you valet.

Ky was the best server we have had at Stonegrill. He engaged the kitchen when the omelette station errored and engaged us in conversation beyond expectations!

Noted anniversary on the reservation, but nothing special was done. Which was not the experience of others who have dined here for their anniversaries. Disappointed.

I made a reservation at Stonegrill on OpenTable, but when I arrived I was told I could not be seated because I was not part of a convention that was going on at the Marriott Desert Ridge. This came after I was contacted by the restaurant to ensure I would be keeping the reservation and I confirmed I would. If there are restrictions on dining, a restaurant should not take reservations on line. There really is no excuse for this action that embarrassed me in front of my guests.

We had such an amazing time here! We were celebrating our honeymoon and everybody was so welcoming. They started off our evening with a champagne toast and our server was wonderful, so attentive and kind. The manager stopped by a few times to make sure we were having a nice evening as well. Dinner was fantastic, I had the NY Strip and my husband has the scallops, we both basically licked our plates clean. They brought us a complimentary dessert platter as well that was so delicious. 10/10 would recommend.

Wonderful service by Rebekah. Food was great - much better than usually found in resort restaurants. We chose Stonegrill because of a great gluten free menu that one diner needed, but the entire group loved their meals.

We were having dinner with friends celebrating Fourth of July and trying to have a conversation. A group next to us were coming and going and getting louder all the time - impossible to carry on a conversation without having to try to yell. We paid our bill and left. Will probably not be back for a long time.

Amazing food and outstanding service! We were quite early for our reservation but the ladies usher us to our table immediately. Jessica greeted us right away. We ordered our drinks and the calamari which even our four year old enjoyed. The short ribs and pork pibil were beautifully presented and tenders. The coconut flan and expresso cake were excellent. Thank you all for such a wonderful and memorable evening!

Food was good and service was excellent. I wish I could remember my server's name. She was so sweet and full of positive vibes and remembered my name every time I came in for a meal. She is a treasure and Stonegrill is luck to have her.

I would recommend this restaurant to a friend only if they were having the buffet. They just do not seem good at menu orders at this time of day. I have eaten at this restaurant multiple times for breakfast. Each time I have ordered off the menu and every time my food has been cold and not prepared as requested and it is as simple as eggs.

The pollo milanesa was ok, a little too much breading. The cochinita pipil was saltier than it should have been, although the meat was very tender, it was a 2 out of 10 for flavor due to the saltiness.

We were here for multiple breakfast and a dinner and were pleased with all. I will start with breakfast- lovely outside setting and across from an open grassy area that the kids can run and throw the football around in. I loved the salmon tartine ( pretty and flavorful), egg white omelet and French toast were also great and good portion sizes. The Greek yogurt with agave and pear was an added bonus.

Dinner was outstanding. Again sat outside under the white lights and near the fire pits. We started with the queso dip off the appetizer menu and the jalapeño cheddar biscuits which were provided to all - we loved both. Then I ate the short ribs which were amazing and such a large portion I couldn’t finish it. My son had the cochinita Pible which was so flavorful and tender. My husband had the bison burger with fries ( loved the fries. The bison burger was ok but no where near as amazing as the other two entrees). No room for dessert. Definitely would recommend!

Braised pork and a bottle of Kris Pinot Grigio were fabulous. Shrimp Cocktail as an appetizer was spicy, yet really good. My husband had the chicken cutlet, which he really liked. Ate at 6:15 and hardly anyone there. Service excellent.

4/14/19 We came to Stonegrill on Valentine's day for my mom's birthday and the service and staff could not have been any more friendly and provided superb service. Thank you for making our birthday breakfast buffet amazing! They even surprised my mom with a birthday dessert just by the fact that I put on our online reservation that the occasion we were celebrating was a "birthday"; complete surprise! Sincere thank you's to everyone!

Food was average at best. Service was slow and disjointed. Many attempts to serve food from other tables to our table. Taking the order seemed to be confusing. It had to be repeated and double checked several times.

We had 3 different meals here during our stay, a breakfast, a lunch, and a dinner, and all were great! The soups and the roasted vegetable omelet were my favorites, but everything we had was good. Service was good as well. Definitely not your typical hotel restaurant.

We hope that we caught the waitstaff on night where they were unexpectedly understaffed and that perhaps the kitchen had a bad night. Granted, it is a restaurant at a huge Marriott property, but there are far too many other options available in this area of Scottsdale, and far better options on site. Disappointed.

We chose this resort dining venue because they were offering a special Christmas menu. Sadly, the atmosphere is not very warm or celebratory. Service was inconsistent. The components of the duck special were piled into a bowl. We could only imagine how much better the meal would have been with some creative plating.
