My husband took me here for dinner last night to celebrate my birthday. It was not our first visit here, and it won't be our last!

Excellent cuisine; pricey; excellent service; nicely appointed. But can be noisy with business/party tables, so ask for a quiet table or booth.

My husband and I took my son and daughter-in-law for dinner at Stonehill and our meal was out of this world. Chris, our server, was absolutely amazing. The restaurant is known for its lobster pot pie. Both my husband and daughter-in-law had it and both raved about how delicious it was. However, its cost was $85.00. My son had the... More

I have had the pleasure of dining at Stonehill Tavern multiple times under the leadership of Chef Raj Dixit. What really makes this restaurant special is that the food constantly evolves. As for the tasting menu, most chefs usually play their hits, while Chef Raj plays whats exciting him and his staff at that very moment. With eclectic flavors and... More

We really enjoyed dining at Stonehill Tavern on a recent trip to the St. Regis. Service, food and wine list were all impressive. We are foodies and rarely eat in hotel restaurants but this one was wonderful!

Most of the table had the steaks but my daughter went completely off menu and created her own entree. That was absolutely no problem for this outstanding staff. Oh, and seriously, for dessert get the Chocolate Souffle. You're welcome.
