My wife and I have been going there since they opened. We live two hours away now, but when we are back in the NoVa area, Stone's Cove is a must stop.

Neither one of us liked what we ordered. I will never go back. The food is awful. I did order one of their Flat breads (Chicken parm) and only had a small piece of it. Quality of the meat (chicken) was pretty bad. My husband did not like his meal either.

Four of us stopped by for lunch and loved everything from beginning to end. Service is fabulous, food was terrific (we had Fish Tacos and the Key Lime Pie Luv Cones for dessert), and enjoyed watching all the meals being prepared. Server chefs (yes, they do both) were willing to explain what the different dishes going by were called so we could find them on the menu. I highly recommend Stone’s Cove KitBar.

This eatery is unique, more bar space than tables— huge fancy marble top bar that takes up some 70% of its space (and the restaurant is large, very nice)

This is a high energy hip place, noisy but tolerable.

The food is DELICIOUS! I wanted to lick the plate clean ;-)
Had the crab cake appetizer and salmon main entree... heavenly!

I will become a regular.

We had a great time at Stone's Cove. Though busy, we were seated quickly at our favorite table. We've come to know several of the servers and many stopped by to say hi, even though they weren't working our section. Flat bread (chicken parm) was good as ever. I tried the cobb salad for the first time. It was different (all ingredients mixed together), but I enjoyed it that way. Hubby's burger was a hit as always. The new chocolate cake dessert is AMAZING and could feed a family of 4 easily, it's that big.

A friend and I have been to Stone's Cove KitBar three times in the past year or so. The first time the service was quite attentive and the food was excellent. The second time the food was good, but the service was not good. This last time, neither the food nor the service was good. The exception is the Hot and Cold Dips, which was still tasty. The Mackinac Flatbread was weak and not very flavorful. The beef sliders were okay. The S'mores Flatbread was overcooked. Service started out slow and never improved. We had to keep flagging down a server to replenish water (Hate that - pay attention!) even though the restaurant wasn't that busy on a dreary Saturday afternoon. We were very disappointed in the experience this time - and we'll debate whether there will be a next time.

Service was efficient and attentive, but for my 2nd consecutive visit, a food item wasn’t prepared well.

A quibble; the Kit tots with my burger weren’t fried either hot enough or long enough - they weren’t crunchy outside, and arrived lukewarm at the table.

Otherwise, the Meatloaf cupcakes, my friend’s salad and my burger were all great.

Responded on February 25, 2019

To whom it may concern, Thank you for choosing to dine with us and we are glad to hear you enjoyed the meatloaf, salad, and burger! We truly apologize our food was not up to par with your liking. As far as our Kit ots go, we do not have fryers in house and bake our Kittots causing them to not be as crunchy but also not greasy. Next time you can certainly request they be baked longer to give them more of a crunchy shell. We hope to see you back in the again Kitbar shortly. -Stone's Cove Staff

Our server was a little distracted and slow to respond.

There was a hair in my salad and I reported it (found it near the end of the meal), specifically requesting that the salad not be comped.

However, a manager should have been summoned to confirm my complaint was registered.

In short, a bit more attention to detail and responsiveness is required for STKB to continue to thrive.

Chicken tacos were great. Not a great spot for a romantic dinner based on most seating being at a huge table that circles the kitchen which means you’ll usually sit next to your date. Very reasonable prices.

Bellwood, Thank you for your review! Yes, the KitBar creates a communal seating area around the kitchen, allowing the guests to be in the middle of all of the action. This allows us to create a unique environment compared to other traditional restaurants. We hope to see you back in the KitBar shortly! -Stone's Cove Staff & Management

Most times we visit Stones Cove we have an excellent experience. It's not a huge menu but what is offered is well prepared and presented. It's a fun environment.

However, with our party of four our food seemed to randomly arrive at the table. There was nearly 20 minutes between the first entree and the second without so much as an explanation. The last entree (mine, the steak special) was almost cold and overcooked by 2 levels (MR -> MW) and unseasoned.

It was valentines day but our reservation was super early so they weren't even half full. I'm treating it as a "one-off" experience that I expect to improve next visit. Apart from the complaints the other meals (cod, fish tacos, pasta prima) were very good as were the desserts (tried one of each).

Philsie, Thank you for reaching out and expressing your concern! At the Kitbar we achieve to give our guests the highest level of service and apologize you feel as if it lacked during your most recent visit. The entrees tend to come out as completed, so that no item is served cold. I am not sure why your steak was improperly cooked but we'll be sure to pass your comments along to our team so we can work to provide a better experience for future guests. -Stone's Cove Staff & Management

I reserved what I thought was two seats at the cute bar-type seating around where the wait staff are. That area is arranged like you're being served in someone's kitchen. Unfortunately, I was seated at a tiny bar table against a wall in the back of the restaurant.

I ordered the hot/cold dips as recommended. The flatbread crisps with it came out completely burnt. I tried to flag down the waiter several times but it was 30 minutes before he returned -- meanwhile, the entrees were brought out and the hot/cold dips had become lukewarm-all-around dips. Another waiter noted that the flatbread was burnt and brought out some fresh ones, but at that point the entrees were taking up the whole table. They didn't comp the appetizer that we unfortunately never got to eat. The entrees were reasonably priced although the cod was very undercooked -- and made me sick all night. I was hoping to have just an hour-long meal, but the service was so slow that it took over 2 hours just for an appetizer and two entrees. Just waiting for the check at the end was at least another 20-30 minutes. This place had so much potential, but unfortunately the service and poor quality from the kitchen just ruined it.

If ever I visited of a more enjoyable casual (but foodie) restaurant in consistency and ease of service, food quality and flavors, and a friendlier and inviting atmosphere, I can’t recall it.

Stone’s Cove Kitbar consistently wows any first time guests (and me) with all this and more!
