Stonewood Grill & Tavern - South Sarasota Ratings and Reviews

Thanksgiving Day. Felt badly that folks had to work but grateful that we had a place to go (no family nearby to share the day).
Good wait staff. Food was generally very good although special requests (no dark meat and additional whipped cream) were not honored.
Breads were amazing! Three Olives special martinis were excellent!
Dining room is attractive but noisy as tables are positioned too closely!
Plan to return on a "normal" day.

We liked our 1st visit so much we went back the next night. Lisa and mary were both helpful and very busy keeping our drinks full. Great reviews on the different salmon sighed and the prime rib rocked. The happy hour was amazing.

Service level from Carissa and her team was good. However, pace of meal seem rushed as we were in and out in an hour. Our Open Table reservation we noted 53rd Wedding Anniversary - but no mention or recognition during service to us. The short ribs with butternut squash ravioli was one of the entrees selected and we have had that at this location in prior visits with some rib bones still in. Current service is not to include rib bones and the meat is not as tender - in our opinon - in fact somewhat misleading without rib bones. The noise level from the next aisle was very very loud because of a wedding party. Not a very satisfying night overall - but we will be back in the future.

We loved Stonewood Grill! Nice ambience, and delicious food with a modest price. Much better than local fried seafood places. I highly recommend their seasonal dish, chicken magnolia, or their chicken pot pie with a puffed pastry topping . Their soft pretzel sticks are delicious! We will probably go back one more time before we head home .

We made a reservation for a Friday evening around 8PM. We had no trouble getting in, as the restaurant was nearly empty. We enjoy going to the Stonewood Grill in Tampa, where the service, food, and dining experience is exceptional.
The Sarasota location left little to be desired. We were served under cooked meat and our credit card was charged for another table's meal. Our server was extremely hard to track down to fix these issues, but once we had his attention he was apologetic, professional and fixed both issues in a timely manner.
Overall this was an underwhelming experience. If we had not previously received impeccable service in the Tampa location, I might not visit a Stonewood Grill again. Sarasota needs to step up their game.

Our starter, bruschetta (recommended by our server), was delicious but nothing else was spectacular. Everyone stated their food was salty, my clam chowder was cold & I had to ask for it to be reheated. The seared ahi tuna was decent, however the sauce wasn't good.
Our server, Aaron, was absolutely amazing! He definitely made the entire experience more enjoyable.

Superb dining experience. Always has been and we have eaten here many times. Always good food, prepared just right. Once we were neglected by service personnel, complained and were comped our before dinner drinks as part of the apology.

I was blown away by by the roses, the card, and the champagne that was arranged for our anniversary! Oh, and the complimentary dessert! I thought I would see a charge for the goodies, but it was all on the house! Stone wood Grill went the extra mile for us on our special day (25th anniversary)! The staff was awesome, and the food delicious. The manager and the regional (?) came to each table throughout the restaurant and asked the guests if everything was good, and did it with such sincerity.
Nothing went right!
Service was lacking. Had to ask for water and bread. Crab cakes were cold and soggy. My husband ordered Prime rib medium and it came very rare. Meanwhile as his went back, I was eating alone. They did offer us a free dessert. The prices they charge I think service and food could have been a little bit better. We live real close so will probably go back again, but not for awhile.

What happened? We have been going to Stonewood at Stickney Point for years and always come away happy.
No such luck this time was very disappointing. I'll start with the cranberry rolls I love .... stale.... very stale. When I mentioned it to the waitress she said they just came out of the oven. Yes last weeks oven. I had the salmon boring. You used to have spiced that made the fish good without resorting to rich sauces which I can not eat. My husband was equally disappointed. Even the orange cake was different and not as good. Come on!!!!
We'll come back next season for one more try but we are taking a break for a while.
The only exception is the tomato bruschetta which is wonderful. I think we will skip the dinners and come for wine and bruschetta.
Good Food, Poor Drink Pour
I am a frequent diner at this Stonewood. Our guests (locals) have never eaten at this Stonewood. I witnessed the ugliest unacceptable "pour" in my life. I ordered a Martini, up. My guest ordered a Vodka, up. The drinks came quickly. My guest received a 1 shot vodka all most noticeable in the glass. I received my martini, filled to the top. Explanation......the manager was very friendly, but told us that a martini, up is a 2 1/2 oz pour and a call vodka or gin up was a 1 oz pour. Unbelieveable. I learned something. Don't make that mistake. Make sure you say "martini" when ordering an "up".
