Excellent Food and Service - Nice Menu

My elderly mother and I always enjoy eating at this location when I visit her from my home in Texas. Our last visit - 8/2015 - was great. I made the reservation through Opentable and requested a booth near the entrance due to Mom's limited mobility. When we arrived at the restaurant, the place... read more

A friend wanted to have her birthday lunch there, so 12 of us met there on a Saturday afternoon. The french dip was good, but at $15, it better be good. The crab cakes looked small, and the rueben was not toasted for my friends meals. Happy hour was a nice addition.

Got there at 5:30pm and got a nice step up booth. Place was filling up however the noise level was acceptable. Scott, the waiter was good, probably a little overaggressive in his approach as far as what his food suggestion were however in general he did a good job. Attentive and friendly. Clean place and in general no complaints about... More

My wife and I stopped here for lunch while running errands. The staff was very friendly and attentive, we were seated quickly for lunch. The calamari was a little bit fishy unfortunately. My wife had the ginger salmon, which was delicious. My new york strip was tough though, I had to send it back. The manager came to our table... More

Cocktail time is every day til 7. Every day! A glass of wine before a steak on Saturday night... priceless! We had reservations, even during off season (no such thing anymore) and were seated promptly by Blanch. Our server was Erica and she spent quality time with us on and off during our experience. She was one of my favorites... More

We ate here after always wanting to try it. We were pleasantly surprised. The staff was very accommodating for our family of five and made us a table outside. The mixed drinks were great and the food was good. I would like to go back and try more though. They have a lot of options to appeal to many different... More

Stonewood Grill is one of those places that for some unknown reason has managed to slip through our restaurant net over the years but thankfully that’s now behind us. This Stonewood Grill is located on University Parkway, Sarasota, and is almost at the intersection with I-75 (ex 213) and more or less opposite the new UTC shopping mall. The restaurant... More

When 7 friends get together for a fun evening - all 7 order the salmon - and they all rave about it - then you know this chef knows how to cook salmon! Very generous portions. Very fresh. Cooked to perfection!

The restaurant was quite full for our evening meal, but staff were very friendly and professional. Two of us had steaks, which were a good size and excellent taste. I had the lamb shanks, beautifully tender and tasty. Prices quite high, but quality matched.

We have frequently dined at Stonewood and this evening was excellent in every way. If they had a water view it would be outstanding. We sat at the bar as the bartenders are so attentive. They had some new items to try and we love that. Lamb kabobs, wrapped in bacon with a spicy sauce, we could have ordered multiple... More
