Stone River Dining is a fabulous dining experience....we dined in an amazing mansion on the river while listening to the quiet and elegant music of live musicians on the patio. We have been twice in the past two weeks and fully intend to become regulars.
You are greeted and seated by the owner and the servers (we like Renee) are extremely well versed in the menu and answered any questions we had with ease and competence.
We were seated at a window seat in the sunroom (ask for it when you book your reservation) with a beautiful view of the Ottawa River and Gatineau Hills on the other side of the river.
The food is amazing, featuring steak and seafood, but with many other exciting options.

I encourage anyone who ventures anywhere nearby (it's only 30 mins from downtown Ottawa) to give it a try. It's a unique and fantastically satisfying dining experience.

We'll definitely be back there soon.

Brought my hubby to Stoneriver Dining in Rockland, On. From the moment we step in, we felt so welcomed. The service was lovely and friendly (thank you Renee). The food was amazing. my husband had the steak-so tender and very well marinated; I had the jumbo shrimp, very well seasoned. We even got the opportunity to meet the owner, Jim, who was very personal and friendly. Thank you to Stoneriver Dining, you made our date night. Definitely going back.

We've frequented this restaurant since it opened. Although the food was always great, the wait staff was under par for such a restaurant. They have now changed chef and dining staff - and what an improvement! The service was impeccable, the food was even more delicious, the presentation beautiful.
We can't say enough about what an improvement this restaurant has seen. It was one of the best meals we've ever had.
Kudos to you, Jim, for the improvements you sought for your business.

We went to Stoneriver to celebrate a retirement and birthday and we were surprised when we realized that all of our favorites weren't on the menu anymore. They also no longer offer la table d'hote on week nights. We still enjoyed our meal but miss the old menu, not sure we will return as often.

We went here for our 33rd anniversary not knowing what to expect as the reviews were quite mixed. We arrived at 6 PM and were cheerfull greeted by Brie and brought to a riverview table as was requested in our reservation. Our server presented herself a minute later, introduced herself as Renee, took our drink order and gave us some history on the building. Approx. 10 minutes later our pre dinner drinks arrived which were made just right (Bloody Caesar & Gingermangorita). Appetizers were Escargots and Lobster Bisque, very tasty indeed, especially the Bisque. Main course was Rack of Lamb done medium rare & was done to perfection. My wife had the Filet Mignon cooked as she requested which was tasty also. Both main courses were accompanied by veggies and potatoes.

The service overall was very friendly, informative and at no time did we feel neglected or have to wait for anything. We read problems with service numerous times in previous reviews but did not experience this at all. On the window ledge at our table was a pair of binoculors in case we wanted to get a closer view of the hundreds of Geese that were floating in the Ottawa river.

During the meal we had several conversations with the staff and were told that the chef they have on hand now has been there for the past 3 weeks only (we visitied May 9th 2014). The food had great presentation, was served hot, in a timely manner and delicious.

CHEF, keep on doing what you're doing as it was a very enjoyable meal and we'll be back.
