I was invited to a banquet at this location. The place itself is very nice and has old world charm. The appetizers were not very good, just edible. The dinner reminded me of a frozen tv dinner in taste. Serving staff is very disorganized. The place needs new management.

HORRIBLE!!! Major management problem. Their reputation is from a bygone era. The bread was cold. The service just ok. The room was about 80 degrees. The chairs in the green room had stains from the 70 s. The wall paper was peeling from the wall. The shrimp were under cooked and the pasta was overcooked like mush. The staff seemed... More

One of the worst meals I've experienced. The menu has sunk to mostly pasta that you can find in any pizzeria. Boneless short rib was slathered with bottled barbecue sauce and topped with a slab of chive butter (an absolutely vile flavor combination). Carrots were virtually raw. Dessert, which the menu calls Pistachio Parfait, was nothing more than ice cream... More

A few weeks ago I had my car valet and the following morning I noticed damages on both sides of my car. The restaurant and the valet company gave me the... More

They did a nice job. Ceremony was well done. Appetizers and cocktail hour was off the hook. Dinner was well done - fillet and salmon. Singing DJs - that was a first. Nice evening.

We had heard nothing but good things about SHI, but were disappointed by how ordinary it was. It seems more geared toward older patrons or banquets. We had a couples dinner and everything was good but not great.

The Stony Hill Inn in Hackensack is a great place for any event whether small or large; business or family. The food and service is spectacular. The rooms are well appointed and staffed. The historic character of the building adds a real special touch.

Gracious mansion-like setting suitable for everybody from romantic couples to large parties. The menu is Italian in flavor. The service is professional and especially (but not exclusively) friendly for regular customers. Look for service from highly experienced maitre-d' Michael.

We were visiting a friend at the Hackensack Hospital and noticed this restaurant on the way so we stopped in for a late dinner. We were ne of their last seatings for the night but were treated to a nice table in the main dining room. Our waiter Gus and all the servers were so friendly and introduced themselves as... More
