Staying at the monarch beach hotel and Had a wonderful dinner with my daughter. Service was great and the oysters and miso cod amazing. Wonderful wine selection. Way better than your typical hotel restaurant - this stands on its own. I am returning again during my stay!

As you enter, the bar is very modern and amazing! Filled with floor to ceiling bottles display. I had their lobster pot pie and it was one of the best dining experiences I have eve had. Highly recommend it. The presentation and the taste are superb!

If you didn't look out the window (or better still sit on the deck) you would think that you were in a 5 star NYC restaurant. The service, wine list, food and ambience are all spectacular We were fortunate to have an amazing waiter, Thomas, but the entire service team is first class. A charming well-educated sommelier is the icing... More

We could not wait to return to the Stonehill Tavern. After a major refurbishment of the hotel; and, new dining options we were concerned the our favorite restaurant had changed. Not to worry! The gorgeous indoor/outdoor space is as good as ever. It's not cheap; but, the lobster pot pie is worth it.

The food is always good here. I especially love the Jidori chicken and the black cod entrees. Service was very good tonight as they weren't too busy. I was glad to see the restaurant is still operating under the new ownership.

During my business trip I had the chance to have dinner in this restaurant twice - once a la carte and once with a set menu. Both times the food was outstanding - I had a classic filet mignon, the meat temperature was en point and the wine selection is very good and was paired well by a sommelier. The... More

We only ate breakfast at the Stonehill Tavern each day. Loved the omelet station and the other varieties of food that was served.

The dining room is beautiful, service impeccable and the food, definitely five stars! The wait staff is very amenable to changing the menu item to suit your tastes. I had the lobster salad and asked for more which they did, at a nominal price. The truffle Mac n cheese side was a meal in and of itself. If there was... More
