We went for Valentine's Day dinner. A special menu was given to us without any explanation, and no price was given on the menu. After asking our waiter, Gio, who took about 10 minutes to even greet us, we were informed that the menu was $70 pp for 4 courses. That would have been acceptable if everything was available to order. They were out of Filet, which I wanted, and my husband wanted Surf and Turf (which) came with Filet so he was unable to get that. We both settled for the strip steaks, which tasted good. When it came time to order dessert, only 4 of the 7 desserts were available (which happened to be all of the least expensive of all the desserts). We won't be back in the future. If you can't have enough of your menu to go around when your are at a restricted capacity, what would make me think that your restaurant is ever equipped to serve any other time.

Worst oysters ever. The rest of the food were good. It could use better decorations. Not sure if I would go back.

Our first experience at the Stone Terrace by John Henry was a memorable one. Top notch restaurant with excellent food and service. Can’t wait to bring more friends and family there.
Veal chop was tremendous and highly recommended the stuffed mushrooms with crab!

Every detail was Perfect! Not one single flaw in our meal! Appetizers and salads were authentic recipes..nothing was mass produced or frozen and thawed..Entree portions were exactly right. Nothing worse than a full plate of lousy food or a small portion of incredible food! I Entrees were cooked to perfection. I would highly recommend The Stone Terrace to anyone who wants an incredible dining experience ! I even overheard a guest sitting behind me,echoing my sentiments, saying, "This is the best meal I've had in a long time!"

There was a misunderstanding when we arrived. They did not receive my reservation even though I had the confirmation from OpenTable. We were seated regardless.

The food was delicious and our server was great! We were seated by the fireplace, which I loved. The menu has a lot of choices. I got the filet mignon and it was perfect. We split the meatball appetizer. They give you three big meatballs. It was more than enough for two people.

The bill was steep for just two people, but we had a blast and it was worth it.

Simply amazing. We had the Macadamia Encrusted Grouper, Salmon with an horseradish sauce (yum!) and from the specials menu, Chilean sea bass. Each one was superb. I can't believe it took us this long to find this gem! Portion sizes were great, fish was cooked to perfection. Server Ray was fantastic. I can't wait to go back!

We made the reservation, confirmed it and when we arrived the resturant was closed. We never received any notice that the resturant was going to be closed. This is extremely poor. We have been to this resturant many times and enjoyed ourselves and the food was excellent, however this is unacceptable since we had guest with us.

The Jersey tomato salad with burrata to start. Very shareable. Tomato’s were on point even in November. We both had pasta with seafood. Everything cooked perfectly. Plenty to take home and enjoy the next day.

Had dinner with friends. A few issues: 1) had confirmed res. for outdoor dining, said they had us down for inside, besides we just filled our outside seating! 2) took 15 min. before server showed up, had no time for us. They’d run by & ask how everything was. My husband ordered a filet & asked what does it come with.....”mashed & string beans”, he asked that’s it, they said “well, there’s roasted & you know”! 3) friend ordered a martini, 1st one came in a large martini glass, 2nd one came in a small champagne glass (same $) 4) ordered roasted beet salad, got 5 quarter rounds of thinly sliced “pickled beets” on salty greens.
Maybe we expected more from an advertised upscale restaurant!
It felt like a neighborhood bar, with fine dining prices! Needless to say, none of us will be going back again.

Our families experience at John Henry’s was deplorable. We were there for my both of my parents birthday dinner. After our family was seated in a back room, the grumpy host then walked in and spoke to my family in a very derogatory way, then he yelled at the server. This was enough to make tables within the vicinity raise their eyebrows. If it was not during the time of COVID and having to make reservations, we would have left and found another restaurant.

The server was great and did a fantastic job even after being yelled at by the host. People at other tables even checked on her to make sure everything was okay. The food was subpar and could have been better. For 6 people we paid $340.

Never going back to this place again.

We aren't quite ready to go inside restaurants with Covid on the rise but you can't go wrong dining at John Henry's Stone Terrace outside. I know you can dine inside as well. There are plenty of rolling heat lamps. Service is excellent, friendly staff, delicious food (seafood is the specialty) and yummy desserts. Did I mention the delicious cocktails? We highly recommend.
