This was our first time dining here. The food we had was pretty good, there’s lots of choices. I couldn’t help but notice that the doors coming in we’re filthy. We sat at the bar and all of the appliances behind the bar and the counters behind the bar weren’t clean. It seems like they really need to do a thorough cleaning of this place in terms of the area behind the bar where they are all handling food and preparing things. The staff was very nice and efficient. I will definitely return but I hope that they clean the place up a bit especially since cleanliness is very important in these times.
Was traveling with family and this place was close by to our hotel. Good service, reasonable prices, solid portion sizes.
Great spot for casual business dinner
Food is quite good - hot and cold dips with pita chips are a favorite. Flatbreads are excellent, with lots of ingredients. The Cuban sandwich was very filling. The service was friendly, but sporadic and somewhat inattentive. We had to request water refills, and we waited quite a while for our food. The restaurant wasn't very busy, so our server's inattentiveness was rather annoying.
Unfortunately they were out of the lamb chops, but I had the flat iron steak and that was excellent. We also had the strawberry shortcake that they only have occasionally but that was excellent as always.
The food there is always amazing! Brunch has been our new favorite. The breakfast pizza and tacos are great!
We love the kit bar, it is our go to spot for a family dinner. Richard and Sydney always take great care of us!
Novel room configuration, excellent service, food is very good though not great.
At the front are a few booths and tables. Most of the room is a large oval bar with cooking and plating in the middle that makes for a good show with opportunities to interact with chefs. Very unique in the bar configuration are several extensions for groups of 4-6.
If you are in the Herndon-Chantilly area, the KitBar is a novel spot for more creative dining without going a lot further to Great Falls, Tysons, Arlington or DC. It's easy to make a multi-course meal from the small plates/appetizers.
Food on our visit: very good were Lamb Lollipops, Hot & Cold Dips, Naked Wings, and Brunch Flatbread. Just okay was the Filet of Beef Sliders with tender though sinewy tenderloin. We had to be careful eating the sliders as sauce was very willing to ooze out.
Stone's Cove Kit Bar is quite good for a neighborhood place. Casual, very good service and the food is surprisingly good for this kind of establishment. Reasonable prices, relaxed. I recommend!
Fun evening at Stones Cove. Good is always good and the drinks are great!
Nice option for a last minute booking, but menu is limited for kids.
Food is delicious and cooked in front of you.
Overall, it was OK but not great. Got attitude from one of the cooks when I commented that something had onions when the menu did not state so - his response was that the menu cannot list all ingredients. True, but perhaps it should list those that some people do not eat ... like onions. Drinks were so so. Food was OK, about diner quality. Prices are high relative to what you get. I would not go back.
First timer! Food was great, our server was attentive and other staff were also continuously checking on us. Will definitely come back again!
Good food, but not the greatest service. Considering COVID-19 restrictions and the limitations on how many guests could be in the restaurant, the service was very slow.
Very fun experience and delicious food!
Great food! Went for lunch on a Tuesday and there were no crowds. The food was tasty and satisfying. Orders were easily adapted to individual needs. Food took a long time to come out, but worth the wait. Waiter delivered lemon slice for water in his bare hand and dropped it in the glass (!!!???). Otherwise, great place to eat. More of a casual dining experience than an sophisticated environment.
There was only one other group of diners on the patio but they were very LOUD
Nice neighborhood bar and grill. I had the Cobb salad and the sirloin steak with red pepper grits. The salad and steak were both good and the grits were really good. Overall a nice bar and grill that does a good job.
We absolutely love coming to Stone’s Cove. The food and service are always amazing. We brought our friends here to celebrate a birthday. Our favorite drink is the Dirty Deed! We love the flat breads as an appetizer. The cod is my favorite dish and you can’t go wrong with the carrot cake or key lime cones. If you have the opportunity, also try brunch here. You won’t be disappointed!!
Nice casual place with a menu that is different than most places of similar price range, which is most attractive part of going to this restaurant. Something different.
Great get together!
Great food and service!
Stone's Cove had been one of our favorite places to eat for years but our last two visits have been disappointing. I wrote off the visit a couple of months ago but this past visit was a repeat performance. Servers are not attentive. They delivered our appetizer and rushed off leaving me to call after the server in order to place an entree order. They deliver the food and then disappear so no chance to order a second drink or get water refilled. 20 minutes from ordering to get appetizer and another 20 minutes to get entree. It was busy when we arrived, but 1/2 the folks left by the time we were finished and still servers did not come by. Finally, after eating the Shrimp and Grits there many times, this was the first time it was disappointing. Too salty and just not as good as in the past. My burger was fine - first time ordering that there. Would still recommend but perhaps after Pandemic is over.
Impossible Burger is fantastic a must try!
Awesome service. Table setup gives you a bar feeling in these COVID times. Food is simple but good. Great everyday spot or low key date night.
Great food and great service. We get a Flatbread every time. The Mackinac Flatbread is our fave. Also love the cobb salad with shrimp.
Due to COVID, the seating was very limited so it wasn’t the usual experience, but the food is always so delicious.
We're regulars here and absolutely love the place. Staff is awesome and very friendly. Menu is varied and excellent across the board. Flatbreads and wings are a favorite. Many excellent entrees as well. The french dip and seared sirloin are great. It's shared service by the staff so don't be shy about catching the attention of whoever comes by if you need something. If you wait for your original server, you may be disappointed with the service because they are all over the place making drinks, cooking and serving.
It was a little cold inside but other than that, had a great experience!
Long time customer and Stone Cove is one of our favorite restaurants. Because of Covid much less crowded on a Sat night. Well spaced out seating at standard seating. We felt safe. Drink order took longer than expected to arrive. Crab Dip tasted like pure cheese and was not good so we sent it back. Entrees were terrific and bigger portions than in the past we think. Service not as attentive as in the past but perfectly pleasant when when he did come by. Waiter took a second drink off the tab due to crab dip (which they also did not charge for). Will return for sure!
My family and I had an amazing brunch today! The Bloody Mary’s were awesome, as was our meal. Stone’s Cove never fails to give us the best dining experience. A big shout out to the staff as well. They are always great!
Fantastic food and service always!
Good food and service. Covered outdoor seating.
The staff was very friendly. I believe the restaurant was inundated with carry out orders and understaffed. It’s probably because of COVID-19. Unfortunately, it took especially long to prepare two simple sandwiches. I can’t say anything about the except that it was average at best. Tough times, I guess.
My husband and I were so pleasantly surprised by this delightful neighborhood restaurant. I have driven by many times. The outside dining area was very clean and it was covered. Nice touch to have individually wrapped hand wides already on the table. Everything that we we ordered was delicious and prepared with very fresh ingredients. The chef came out to check on us too. We will come back. It is a perfect place for the distanced out door meal. They even have heaters. Yay!
SLOW & POOR service. I had a reservation for 8pm, no one greeted us at the door had to hunt down hostess. We were eventually seated around 8:15. 20 min wait between myself & my guest receiving their dinner. So in order for their meal meal jot to get cold they had to eat alone while I waited for my meal for 20 min. Which is baffling as I only ordered chicken salad sandwich. Stopped an employee(young lady) to ask if she can check on why my meal was taking so long. She told me she could not check & to just stop my server when they walk by next. I was completely shocked by her response. When I did ask my sever he explained it’s been extremely busy but that they were working on it. Open kitchen concept-I saw him walk up to a cook them the cook began making my food. Chicken salad is pre-prepped all he had to do was toast bread add lettuce & chicken salad. Litwrally took him a few min to make. So I’m almost certain the server either forgot to put in my order or the cook forgot to make it. When I did get my food it was good, but prepared a bit sloppy as I could tell it was rushed. my food it was good, but prepared a bit sloppy as I could tell it was rushed.
Thank you for your feedback. Making our guests feel welcome and well cared for is our highest priority and I am sorry that you did not experience the level of service and attention that our guests have come to expect. I'll be sure to pass along your feedback to our staff so we can work to provide a better overall experience.
Each dish was good but kind of small-ish. Tapas is a good word. Shrimp and grits were great. Almost had the S’mores pizza but the chef brought it out and said that it has peanut butter (no mention on menu and I’m allergic) so he took it back and took it off the bill. If you’re into that, the wait staff said it was really good, but can’t review it.
Food always great. Service is the key to success keep an eye on it guys.
Great food, but inadequate ventilation over the cooking surfaces made the entire place smell like burnt oil. When I left, my clothes smelled really bad.
This is our go to lunch spot. Unfortunately, this day, lunch took way too long. 1st time this has ever happened! The staff seemed kinda disorganized but we all have off days. This will not stop me from going back as I love this place!
