We chose River Stone Chophouse as our venue to celebrate my husband's 35th birthday. I made the reservations online about a week beforehand (very easy to do) and we arrived on time and were seated promptly by the hostess. Our server was OUTSTANDING. Clearly, this gentleman has been in the business for some time. He was gracious, knowledgeable, and eager... More

This is a very nice and upscale Chophouse in Northern Suffolk, just off I-664, easy to find. On to the review. This was our 3rd visit for happy hour and had appetizers at the bar. River Stone’s happy hour is a very good, discounts on the bar food and drinks, Non happy hour prices are pretty aggressive for this area.... More

To summarize Jerry Seinfeld: River Stone knows how to take the reservation, they just don't know how to hold the reservation. How hard is it. 9pm reservation. Arrive at 8:50pm. Wait for fifteen minutes. Couple arrives after us...seated immediately. Wait 10 more minutes. Group of three arrives...seated within 5 minutes. Waited until 9:35pm. No table for us, so we left....

Heard mixed reviews about slow service, not so friendly hostesses, etc. I went on a date night with the wife, we arrived and were promptly greeted and seated in the dining room. We were quickly serviced with water and asked if we'd like any drinks. Our waiter also shortly came over, was very friendly and helpful as well. If interested... More

Chophouse was a great place for a holiday dinner with a very important client. There were 9 of us and the table by the fireplace was great. Our server was fantastic and the wine selection terrific. Everyone complemented the steaks - I had the lamp chops which were fantastic!! Sides were large and we over-ordered. Dinner was so good there... More

Have had good food here before, however the front desk service is horrid, especially when you consider how much you are paying for your meal. They need to refresh their customer service manual. We will be dining at other establishments who value their customers from now on.

River Stone Chophouse really is an excellent establishment. A buddy and I recently went on a Monday night and enjoyed a dinner we'll talk about for a while. Actually, we talked about it from the beginning of the meal itself. Our waitress (named Fallon?) was so knowledgeable about the items, the wines, the pairings, the ingredients, the cuts of meat...
