“Dumpy outside, gourmet within”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2008

What a surprise this unimpressive restaurant is from the outside, but walk through the doors & you're treated to an intimate, luxurious, gourmet menu with attentive staff & food like you've never enjoyed before! Loved the cucumber & lemon infused ice water. Extensive wine bar. Recommend the "3 little pigs" dinner entre.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2008

This is our all time most favorite RESTaurant! We've been eating here when we go to NOTL for quite a few years and it's always consistantly wonderful. The food is fresh. The menu is unique. The service is incredible. (thanks Joe!) The only complaint...too many people know about it! Reservations are suggested! I am shocked that there are any bad reviews. Such a talented chef!

“Nice ambiance!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2008

We had a very nice experience at the Stone Road Grille last Thuesday. One was a chicken dish and the other was trout. Both were beautifully presented and delicious. The music is bistro-like but could be a little quieter as it can interfere with the whole dining experience. But, if you are in larger cities, this is as close as you can get. Very nice and highly recommended.
Look for the sign REST and you are there.

“Very Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2008

Let me start by saying we had high expectations for this spot after reading through the menu. Sadly, it has to rank among the most disappointing meals we've ever had. We shared the charcuterie plate as an appetizer, which had some interesting flavours but was nothing to write home about. My husband had the flatiron steak and frites, which was very good but my lamb done three ways (tenderloin, sausage and dumpling) was a letdown - the tenderloin was tough and the sausage chewy and gristly. The portions were huge but the owners should really consider reducing the portions and improving the quality. What made our dining experience worse was the ambiance - the tables are far too close to each other and the background music much too loud, making conversation almost impossible. According to the owner of the B&B where we stayed, this used to be an excellent spot but it would appear that they are trying to increase their revenue by cramming in more tables and hiking the prices. Total cost of our meal, for one appetizer, two mains and wine, was over $160 - far too much for what we experienced. If you are looking for a romantic venue with good value, we would suggest you look elsewhere.
