I frequent this restaurant several times a year normally the provide great service. Saturday Feb 15 was extremely poor. We were sat the hostess never gave us menus took 20 mins to get a menu. We ordered our food at 7:45 pm we received our food at 9:25 pm after asking several people if our food was coming out. Our waiter never came by to inquire about our food once.

The food was delicious. The service was not. They seemed to be disorganized. I had a waiter say our clams would be out 45 mins after we ordered eventhough we already ate them. Other tables near us were receiving wrong dishes.

I lived in Bergen Count for22 years been to most restaurant, however never been to Stony Hill just find it on Open Table and read reviews. When we pulled up my husband and I thought that this was going to be a beautiful but overpriced restaurant with little food. We started with the two appetizers good price enough for 4 people they were excellent. With a table of 4 we each ordered a different dish, the dishes were well presented, good portions and tasted as good as they looked. They have their own pastry chef and the two deserts we ordered were very good. Our server was very friendly had good knowledge of the menu and we were not rushed. The various rooms were all beautiful and well decorated, and I will be a regular at Stony Hill.

The food was great. Service was mediocre it took a long time to get the bill picked up after it was dropped on the table. It was a little strange to be charged for a refill of iced tea. The valet guy also drove my friends truck pretty fast in the parking lot when bringing it back to us.

Nice brunch, we will return but ask for a table NOT near the buffet as it was very busy and lots of kids around chocolate fountain. Mike the busboy gets an A+ in our book!

Beautiful restaurant that I have been to before. Ambiance of the building is beautiful however white butcher paper covering the white table cloths is very lame. With an average cost of an entree being over $30 pp I think this restaurant can afford a linen bill.

Manager had 0 personality - no comment no greeting upon our arrival. Waiter wears a tie with open collar it very professional. We had to seek out busboys / servers for water and additional drinks.

Key lime tart dry with little lime taste.

Overall evening was extremely disappointing.will
Not return.

We tried the Sunday brunch and everything was outstanding. I find that most brunch buffets nail either the breakfast food or the lunch entrees, but here both were great. Wonderful dessert spread as well. It took a little while to get the check, but nothing to complain about. I will definitely be returning.

It is a shame how the night evolved because this is a place we could have been very happy to return to. Upon entering, we were told that our table was needed by 8:00 because we booked online while someone else booked by phone. This made us very uncomfortable. We were not at ease nor were we relaxed and enjoying our night. Our waiter was not bringing the courses in a timely manner, so we didn’t receive our entree until 8:15. I had my dinner boxed to take home. Dessert was not an option because our time had expired.

When we were seated, someone wiped down the glass top and set the dishes down without a table cloth or place mat. That was fine, but when we were asked to please move over to the bar while waiting for our check, the same table was set for the next customer with a table cloth.

We were very disappointed.

Overall the food was good. The service was substandard this night. If the waiter had no intention of paying attention to empty wine glasses then he should have put the wine bucket closer to the table so we could pour as needed. He seemed overwhelmed and we had to ask for bread, refills and the desert was supposed to come with berries and it didn't so once again had to ask for them to be brougth out. When I pay this much for dinner I expect the service to be top notch.

Food was very good. Service was very shaky. I am having a hard time understanding why the tablecloth was paper. Hand cut or torn and hung over the edge. Very uncomfortable. This used to be a top notch gourmet restaurant. Things change I guess.

The food was excellent!!! The wait staff was very attentive and addressed any issue. The music was very loud, they couldn’t lower it so they shut it off.
Definitely will be going back soon!!!

Love Stony Hill and have been there a number of times. This was brunch. Mimosas were good. Salad bar was uninteresting. Hot food ok but nothing spectacular. The egg white omelet that I had was undercooked and really not tasty. Fruits for chocolate fountain were almost gone and deserts were mediocre. No more brunch there for me.

The waiter was not really friendly, especially when i told him i was allergic to garlic!
My husband had meat with roasted potatoes. In fact they were not roasted by sautéed by still raw. I was supposed to get a sea bass for $38.00. It appeared to be a piece of cod!
Really unprofessional....

A classic continental dining experience. Food is consistent.
Seems to be more of an event venue - 2 parties in the banquet area, 1 of the dining rooms blocked with a screen for a family celebration.

We were celebrating our anniversary which was at the Stony Hill Inn 20 years ago. The menu selections were disappointing. The Caesar Salad seemed to have boxed croutons and could have used some fresh Parmesan shavings. The beef carpaccio was dry. I order surf and turf and the lobster tail was over broiled because it was brown all over. We expected the food in the restaurant to be more gourmet but it was just typical catering food. For such a special establishment, we wished the meal would have been just as special.

We got married there 20 years ago and mentioned that when we made the reservation on Open Table. Not even a glass of wine or free dessert. It Would have been nice for them to have acknowledged that in some way. We also mentioned it to our server and the manager, all they offered was as tour of the premises. A bit disappointing in that regard.
