I don't normally review individual restaurants in a chain, since they tend to have standardized food and service, and everyone "knows them". However, this Stonewood Grill greatly deviated in service and food quality from expectations. I have eaten at this Stonewood many times, but not for about a year. It was a great disappointment. I ordered prime rib-medium. It came... More

We were meeting someone for drinks. the website showed happy hour all day with martini specials. The bartender let us taste the vodka that had on special before we decided on our martinis. Great drink prices and great service. Will try the food next time.

I have reviewed this restaurant last year , and it's not the same anymore. Seems like the food is over seasoned and the staff keeps turning over too much. I had the trout which was really over seasoned , and my wife had the grouper. It is not as good as it use to be.

Don't go here. We waited forever for drinks, appetizers, then diiner. The place only had a few tables with people, they were not busy. I got the ahi tuna appetizer, it was dry. The worst I've ever had. I ordered a special feature, surf and turf. The food was good but it was cold plus we waited forever. The server... More

There were large chunks of lobster, chopped bacon, avocado, fresh corn off the cob, tomatoes and cucumbers. I've discovered I'm not a fan of green goddess dressing served with the delicious lobster salad but the server quickly brought balsamic dressing I requested.

First of all we should mention Rich, the friendliest server of our trip so far and a genuinely nice guy. He looked after us well, asking were we happy with our food and did we need anything else. We had the clam chowder and scallop dip for starters: delicious.Then we had the Bajun Surf n Turf, Pot roast, cajun chicken... More

I dine at Stonewood regularly. I take clients, friends and family there. Ordinarily, the food was consistently very good - and that's why I went. The last time, I ordered the prime rib. There was nothing prime about it. Tough, overcooked, chewy and flavorless. I should have sent it back, but I did not. The service was less considerate than... More

We've been coming here for years and even with the occasional staff/management turnover, Stonewood has maintained its outstanding dining experience. The Sarasota property is conveniently located if you are coming from the mainland or from Siesta Key and there is always ample parking. We like that we can call ahead and get preferred seating, but even if we forget, the... More

Went for dinner last night and we were very disappointed. When I go to a steak restaurant and pay $27 for a small filet $19 for a small sirloin I think it is fair to expect it to be cooked correctly. Filet was ordered rare and came out closer to medium. Quality of filet was good, seasoning was good. The... More
