We went to this restaurant for Mother's Day so we had a reservation. We were seated promptly at a table in one of the dining rooms right near the fireplace. Restaurant is very nice it is inside an estate home so it is very pretty to look at.
Next came our server, I went with my mom who is both gluten intollerant and vegetarian (hard to find anything on a menu she can eat) but we were told by the server they could make everything gluten free. My mom wanted the scallops, but we were told they had none so she went with the crab cakes (after being told they could make everything gluten free). The crab cakes show up breaded in bread crumbs, when we asked if they were gluten free, we were told they could not be made gluten free... so much for everything being gluten free.
We had ordered drinks, pop, coffee, beers and wine and everything showed up (the wrong beer showed up and the one that was ordered was not actually available) except the coffee which took forever.
Most of us ordered the Schnitzel and it was excellent, really, really good.

This restaurant serves great food, unfortunately, the waitresses need more experience and for the price it is not really worth it, you can get excellent German food in Ottawa for less.

We have had dinner here several times and enjoyed the atmosphere and food. We made a reservation for brunch and were not told that we would be seated in the basement with only tiny basement windows - no view. We had two elderly women, two children and a baby in our group. We had to go up a winding staircase to get our food. This was a problem for the 78 and 87 year old with us. If we had been told that we would be seated in the basement we never would have gone there. The view is the best part of the restaurant.

We went for dinner at Stoneriver a few weeks ago. The restaurant has several dining areas. We were seated with a view of the river which was beautiful, especially looking out over the frozen river at dusk with new snow settled on the trees.

For dinner I chose the tenderloin with mushrooms and Spätzle (Spaetzle - German pasta). This is a wheat flour and egg based homemade pasta. The entire entree was well presented and delicious. I look forward to returning to Stoneriver again and trying more of their menu.

Finally a restaurant who really cares about their clients. This privately owned restaurant in Rockland, Ontario is a fine restaurant to bring family, friends and that significant other. Fabulous service, food, and location, on the Ottawa River. A view that is breathtaking, especially during the warmer months when daylight is prolonged. The owners Helga and Jim give excellent service! The food is fantastic and the choice is remarkable with an accent on German dishes like schnitzles and spaetzle (hope that's the right spelling). The Beef Carpaccio comes with a twist and is scrumptious. The Harvest salad is a meal in itself with goat cheese and candied almonds...They have homemade Apple Strudel as well. The ambious is elegant and there is an outdoor terrace with a view that is breathtaking. Definitely should be you your bucket list!
