Opened in August 2013, Stoneacre Pantry is a neighborhood restaurant focused on sustainability and a positive relationship with our local environment. Our menu is small, seasonal, and supports nearby farms and fishermen with fish from nearby waters and meats from local farms that raise their animals humanely. The wine list highlights small producers from France and many of our cocktails have housemade components.

The flavors were just not there... I left having spent over 150 bucks for dinner for two yet SO underwelmed by the food. I won't be back.
Great location and wonderful looking restaurant, however the food was not that appetizing.
I had the $58 chef menu. The only thing i requested was no red meat... and then they delivered 4 amazing courses plus dessert. Everything was perfect, strawberry gazpacho, grilled octopus, pasta with truffles, and a perfectly prepared sea bass, topped off by an apricot dessert that was so yummy. My partner ordered a la carte he had creamed spinach, and pork entree, and the chocolate dessert, all of which he loved. Decor is very nice and unusual, but not in a distracting way. We sat inside by the front windows which were partially open - which was refreshing. Our waiter Sean, was attentive and helpful. We will definitely be back!
The menu is a bit limited and the prices are on the high side. That being said, the dishes we ordered were very flavorful and well-prepared. Will come back again!
Nice atmosphere. I would prefer sitting in front but the back was fine also. The drinks were good, escargot were good, pasta was good but not as light as homemade pasta usually is. Chicken was not good at all. Tasteless, cheese sauce had no flavor and was not a good compliment to the dish...and the chicken was dry. For the price $28, I would say they need to work a little harder to charge that for chicken.
Was seated at 8.
Restaurant was 25% full.
At 820 pm, we had seen no waiter and had no water (much less a drink).
Wanting to try this place, we decided to give it 10 more minutes.
NOBODY came to our table.
The reviews I read about uncaring, incompetent and ultra slow service are sadly true.
Our group had mixed feelings about our meal at the restaurant. All of us are adventurous diners and have dined in Micheine starred restaurants.The menu was limited in its choices and while the food was well-prepared and offered unusual ingredients, the portions were exceedingly small, given the prices charged for appetizers, entrees and desserts. Fried whitefish balls were tasty but tiny.The scallops entree was nicely plated but had only 3 scallops and the grilled lobster tail was colorful, it was so small that the diner completed it in just 5 bites. Each of these entrees was $32.00. The other diners were more pleased with their dinners of pasta and pork. Side dishes are offered as an extra; entrees are accompanied with small garnishes.The drinks were very good and unusual. The dessert orders of honey cake were disappointingly dry. Happily our dinner ended amuse bouche chile chocolate balls.
I would recommend the restaurant to others with the caveat that the portions are small and the prices are high.
Service a little slow to get started but picked up once we got going
The menu is limited as far as entrees go. We deceided to go the small plate route due to the main menu selections and their high prices.
The service staff was very very young n not very out going or personable except for one of the 4 servers we had who was 40!
Not once did anyone give us a detailed explanation of the dish they delivered.
Grilled bread could have been done more and was drowning in a low quality olive oil.
Desert was good but the chocolate mousse was very small!
Since they have been open less than a year it would have been nice for a manager or owner to come and by to check on us. It seems that if you are a regular local they do that !
All in all I believe that by next year the menu will be tailored to a wider palate and the prices reduced to stay busy. It’s a long cold winter and the locals won’t be able to keep this place going as it is now.
Salvation cafe, The Mooring, Scales n Shells!
Horrible service, main course was brought before appetizers and one hour after we arrived. Food was tasteless. Service was extremely slow. I have made over 300 reservations through open table and never had any problems with a restaurant but this is just too bad not to write a horrible review and do a service to other people that might fall into the same trap.
Food was great. Service was impeccable. I'd rate this place 10 times if I could and this is the first review I've ever left on anything. I wanted to bathe in the french onion soup.
Why would I go anywhere else? From the reservation to an arriving welcome to friendly service and always amazing new American cuisine, the comfortable ambience makes for memorable meaningful nights out reconnecting with family and friends. Love it!
The waitstaff and food were excellent but the kitchen was very very slow. Each course took about twice as long as it should have.
Dinner experience: Service was poor. Water person was quick to come, then we were ignored by our waiter. Placed our order. Appetizer never came, never made any effort to make amends for the mistake. We simply asked for them to remove it from our meal. Not a huge variety to choose from for dinner, which was challenging for our party. If you aren’t into unique, fancy food....wouldn’t recommend. If you are in a rush..don’t recommend. If you are hungry...definitely don’t recommend.
Dinner was tasty, but very small portions and very expensive. We had to ask for our check twice.
Consistently delicious food. Would love open table option of high top Vs regular table reservation. Seating can be unfavorable in that there are many tables at banquet corners & it’s not favorable as a 4 top.
We were there during late lunch. No one took care of us. One server, one delivered the food and that was the only interaction the whole time we were there and we spent quite a bit of money to be ignored.
Our entire party's food was average at best the service was slow and the managers have bad attitudes. I have been here three times now and somehow the service keeps getting worse and the food gets more expensive. There are some many other Newport restaurants with great food, a fun vibe, good service that cost less or equal to SAP. If your thinking of this place try the Mooring, Cooke or Midtown you will be much happier.
The service was abysmal. They sat us 30 min after our reservation and never apologized. It took about 15 min for a server to come over to our table, with no apology. They also had a ‘glitch in the system’ and our entrees weren’t made so once they figured out something was wrong we were waiting for about 45 min in between our apps and entree. Overall the food was delicious but the service was so poorly run.
I've been going to Stoneacre since they were in the smaller location. The food and drink was incredibly delicious. They made a small mistake in the order but fixed it quickly and made it right with free desserts. I strongly recommend this place to all my friends
Absolutely fantastic food and excellent service.
What a gorgeous, modern restaurant to come to Newport. The ambience, openness and service were both impeccable and fun. A spacious bar, imaginative menu and small extras added to the evening. My swordfish was excellent, but alas the chicken entre missed the mark, dry and without the wonderful sauces that sparked the fish and appetizers. Will return to try other meals, knowing the ingredients are all fresh and local.
We did good times !....best meal ever !!!....9 courses !!
Couples weekend in newport. Food was good. The muscles were amazing. A bit expensive but that was expected.
A bit too loud for comfortable conversation, but the food was fabulous.
Very small portions for the $.
We went to this restaurant for our anniversary. The way they renovated this building is beautiful and a good mix of traditional and modern. The food was outstanding. We had the burrata salad with strawberries and rhubarb, the striped bass, braised pork, chocolate hazelnut mousse and the panna cotta with cherries. It was all amazing! Service was excellent. It was a busy night but not loud which was really nice. French wine selection is extensive! And we had some very nice Bordeaux and a lovely burgundy. No complaints here!
Lovely corner spot on a block with lots of restaurants and shops. Outdoor seating is available. The dining room tends to be cramped and can get loud. Lovely ambience great service friendly staff. The mussels were excellent, not too much butter or fat in the broth. Chicken breast was highest quality as well and the onion soup was very good. Very nice wine list and a nice variety of desserts. Would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant.
2 of 5 dinners undercooked. One diner requested that her tuna be cooked through - it was barely seared and had to be sent back. My halibut was raw in the middle. One of the drink orders was for a wine spritzer - a glass of wine (no soda water, no ice) was served - when the waitress was asked about it, she said that’s how they made spritzers. Waitress had an attitude...
Liked Stoneacre at its old location much better!
Relaxing tasty meal, with good service, not rushed like those on the wharfs
All around awesome!
Space is beautiful. Menu is creative and food is excellent.
The restaurant was surprisingly empty for Father’s Day dinner but that meant we had an attentive staff and no wait in courses. The food was good across the board, apps, salads and entrees but nothing that wowed us. The best of the lot was the wild nettle polenta, great flavors and textures. Light and comforting at the same time. Otherwise, the food was satisfying and portions were ample. It would be nice to see what the atmosphere is like when it is full and busy. That will have to wait for another day
Burrata salad was a mess. Polenta was tasty but should have been a side. Crudo was soaked in lemon and so was cooked. Expected more
We picked this restaurant from the reviews we read. It was good but if you are a real foodie - not great. I expected more creativity, but everything was cooked very well and service was very good. Cool atmosphere, good wine list. A little disappointed by the $32 -3 scallop dish. Had nothing special about it. I think if they step it up a bit, this place could be really great. Needs more dimension in flavors.
Excellent grilled octopus!!! Fantastic miso kale Caesar.
First time visitors. Attentive and friendly service. Food was creative and outstanding. We got 4 of the tapas style dishes and one entree. It was a ton of food for 2 of us. The wild nettle polenta was heavenly, and the smoked trout fritters were light, crispy and flavorful. I thought the food prices were reasonable for the quality and creativity of the dishes. Wines by the glass were interesting (and expensive). Menu changes often so look forward to returning. We were sat in the back room in a corner and it was pretty empty when we arrived (6:45 Sat night) but room filled in well as dinner went on. So noise level was low and we enjoyed conversation. Front room is livelier and more interesting design, but tables looked close together.
Went for my. Irthday and it was a great celebration. Staff was so accommodating. The decor was beautiful and the food was exceptional. Wonderful experience
Wow. This place blew us away. Service was exceptional. Food was top notch. We will definitely be back.
Nice blend of interesting and tasty in a welcoming in a smart environment
