This was my first time eating at this restaurant. The ambience was great, the music was fantastic, and the service was okay. The food missed the benchmark. I visited the restaurant with my daughter and she ordered steak with spinach and mushrooms on the side She told me that the spinach had a funny taste, so I tried it and the spinach taste like it was cooked in old oil. In addition, I ordered the pecan crusted fish and the fish was overcooked. Also the pecan crusted part of the fish was not tasty and I ended up taking it off. For the price of this restaurant, I think they need to redo their menu or maybe we just came on a bad night. I don’t see myself visiting this restaurant again.

Great place for teenagers and families.
Nice ambiance for intimate moments or celebrations. Although the booth is shaped funny, it was still comfortable and even the chairs I’ve sat in were fine. I will visit again.

But the price is too expensive. Which is a shame, or I would visit frequently as the food service and atmosphere is enjoyable.

Special occasion restaurant only.

The food was not only terrible but took forever for a sandwich and burger on a slow night. I ordered a drink that the bartender and waitress did not know what it was which was a very basic drink and instead of telling me they did not know what it was or have it it took 10 minutes for them to make something random and then another 10 to ask for a glass of wine which took another few minutes to arrive.

We were immediately seated for our table for 5 and there was even a table card with our name on it. Service was prompt and attentive.

Everything about our meal was excellent and arrived at what I would describe as the perfect timing for a family get together. Timely but not rushed.

Meats were tender, delicious, properly seasoned and cooked to the requested doneness in every case. Desserts are adequate for a generous portion for two except for the carrot cake which will feed three.

This was our second time here. We will happily return.

Went to Stoney River with my wife and her steak was ok. However, the steak I got was undercooked and had to flavor what so ever. There was no seasoning on my 30 dollar steak. We both agreed that we will not be dinning at this place again.

As food as it always is. The one item that knocked the top rating down is the rolls. Switching to an in-house recipe diminishes the quality and taste of the old rolls. Other than that it was a great meal.

The waiter did not understand my request for a large bottle of sparkling water, then, instead of letting us know that the restaurant did not have a large bottle, brought 3 small ones, which we would not have ordered. Then one of the rib eyes were brought medium, even though we ordered medium rare, and the filet, which was ordered medium, came medium rare. We did not complain about it because we wanted to move on with dinner.

We have been disappointed the last 2 times we have had dinner. Four of us and 3 of our steaks were not done as asked. Spinach came out cold. It took quite awhile for drinks to come. The noise level has gotten to be more like a Friday’s or Applebee’s. I never mind paying for fine dining however, if you are charging for fine dining then there needs to be some type of dress code and the food needs to be worth the price. We used to dine here for special occasions because it used to be a much better atmosphere and menu. When you serve sandwiches at a Restaurant the fine dining atmosphere and patron base completely changed. We won’t be returning.

Birthday dinner for my spouse. Server was excellent. A bit disappointed that there were no rolls at the time. Obviously you had run out and more were being baked. It’s minor but we look forward to them. The scallop special that night was delicious.

I usually frequent the Chapel Hill Stoney River. The atmosphere in Towson is great but the food was just ok. The fried shrimp and calamari were just not good. The steak was great! Service was not on par with what I’m used to from Stoney River. Not bad but not fantastic either.

The filet was very good. Prime rib was a little bit too fatty for our taste - we trimmed off more than the usual amount of fat. We did mention this to the manager who offered that the extra fat keeps the meat from drying out while in the very hot oven.

Food and atmosphere is very nice. Unfortunately we had a 20 year old Towson U student server - no experience at 'fine dining' - he probably has limited experience even eating out at restaurants. My husband asked for a substitution for creamed spinach to broccoli - but somehow got broccoli got added to his salad. The manager was great, the food arrived promptly, its just hard to be the other end end of a server's learning curve.

Great atmosphere.
Food is very good.
It is not as upscale as you read about- lots of retail patrons come in from Towson mall so it is a lot more casual than I expected.
I did my dad's birthday dinner here. Everyone enjoyed their meals.
Calamari was extremely spicy hot- we could not eat it.....way too much spice.

Awesome experience!! I actually went onto your website this morning to write a review (which I never do!) and then I got this email! I'll write in bullet points so I don't ramble.

1. I had reservations for 4:30pm on Saturday, 03/01. I was running late so I called to let them know. The girl that answered the phone was super nice and very appreciative of me calling. Great first impression!
2. When we (me and my 7 year old niece) arrived there was a line of people waiting and we wanted to have our picture taken. One of the girls at the podium didn't hesitate to take our picture for us and complimented us on how nice we looked.
3. Once we were seated our waitress seriously could not have been more nice! She was so genuine and friendly. She also took our picture and complimented my niece on her outfit.
4. The food was fantastic!!

When we left dinner the first thing my niece said to me was, "Everyone there was so nice!!". I really appreciate good customer service, but for you to make an impression on a 7 year old, really speaks to how great the customer service really was! I will definitely be returning!!

Thank you for a great night out!
