    I was charged double for a drink and an item I did not get. I wanted to leave and with guest, so I just paid a supplemental bill the waiter brought over, AFTER the main bill/receipt. Only when I arrived home did I find it was absolutely incorrect. Service was a tad slow in some instances, and front desk was having issue with other guests. I have been going to the Stonehouse for decades. Our family spent every Christmas dinner there for about 10 years. It is unfortunate that it has seemed to slide so much in recent years, and the wait and billing issue surprised me. I had already paid $800 for a dinner for two, then waiter came with additional bill ?? I did not have the time or energy to argue, especially with my date waiting. May be better served to go to Lucky's, Caruso's, or Tre Lune. Sad.

    Amazing food, amazing service. Even the simplest dish (little gems salad) was remarkable. The new bar downstairs, formerly the Plow and Angel, not The Speakeasy, can be avoided. Dark and funky with expensive cocktails although I hear it is interesting during the holidays decor wise...

    Excellent as always!!!! Very professional staff, beautiful atmosphere, and outstanding food! The Jon Dory and duck were fabulous! The only disappointment is that the Grand Marnier souffle is no longer on the menu - it was one of the best desserts we've ever had; bring it back!
