Shouldn't the orecchetti meal have orrecchetti pasta ?
By meomeomy on 1/23/2013
Yes there was a limited menu and yes it was over priced. With that being said , the ingredients listed for this menu item were sausage, spinach and pasta. My meal came with a bowl full of penne pasta, some sausage and a sauted spinach leaf. Could have the chef and waiter assumed I would not know the difference between the pastas? Shame on them. I would never ever go back. I rather enjoyed going to the Dizzy club instead. The food and service there is outstanding!
As a resident of the Upper West Side...

We've been looking for a place to frequent..that means "affordability" and "decent". The dancing space would be a plus. I called and they mentioned that they do NOT play mainstream music - GREAT! We don't like the same looped bar of music for an hour anyway. Also Kanye and Beyonce is for kids with no trained ear. Yet..So far the visitor reviews here are awful on this place. Why does it have a critic pick? Look..anyone who knows the upper west side..knows that's it's 60% rent stabilized/rent controlled. That's the percentage in our building. Nobody gives up their apartments and tend to pass them down through generations! This also means the majority is middle income. It's been that way since the 30s. There has been a movement to gentrify it and make it some upper middle class to uber wealthy area...that will not happen for some time. Since they cannot sell 800 sq ft for 1.1 million...I don't see anything changing anytime soon. SO..what I'm saying is you can get more out of the middle class if it's affordable. The frequency of selling a drink under $10 is better than having no one come to your place or just having tourists. If there is no life and no community it will not last as a business...not on the upper west side at least. They are too much like family there. I think it's a wonderful space...but not realistic. I would've given a higher rating..it really comes down with how much you want to blow on weak drinks. I will settle for the local dive bar!
Great View ......awful service won't go back

The place has a nice view......as do numerous hotels/apts in the area....... tall hostess was a bobble-head and rude to boot. Service was really slow. $80 for 4 drinks so fairly expensive as well. Most appropriate for tourists who have never been in a building with a Park view.

This place is a complete fail. Even if you're throwing down your corporate card it's still pretentiously overpriced.

My guests and I reserved a table by the window on Saturday, February 19. The views of Columbus Circle were lovely and I can certainly see the draw for visitors even though we all live on the Upper West Side. The bottle of Champagne we ordered was served warm and when we finally flagged our server down, she defensively informed us that all the bottles were warm and we would have to patiently wait for it to chill in the ice bucket. Since when is Champagne served warm? We exchanged the champagne for average cocktails, paid and left. Service was non existent for the most part; slow and unprofessional at best. We never saw the presence of a manager either. This lounge has potential but for now, try another spot.
horrible service- would NEVER go back

worst service I've ever had.

This was by far the worst lounge/bar i have ever been to. the service is beyond horrible, the staff is obnoxious and rude, overall its a waste of time and money to even walk into this place. i dont recommend anyone going to this bar
Good drinks, nice, but service is very slow
By joeranwater on 12/16/2008
Ill start off by saying the Stoned Rose is one of my favorite places. Ive been there about 5 or 6 times and the service is mixed at best. Half of those times, there is never anyone at the front to greet you. Its as if the greeter is cleaning tables between greeting. Also, once you're in side, you need to order your 2nd drink at the point you are half way through your first drink becuase it takes a while to flag one of the waitresses and some time before they return. Again, I experienced this more than half the times Ive been here. Overall, a nice place to go to once or twice but the service would be a problem to come here as a regular.
Great Space, But No Where to Sit
By woostergirl on 2/24/2008
Stone Rose is billed as an upscale bar/lounge in the Time Warner Center, worthy neighbor to the restaurants Porter House, MASSA and Per Se. The decor is modern art deco and very spacious. The music on Saturday night is a fun blend of older top 40 music. The drinks are a bit outrageously priced and I couldn't take in the view at night. But the main problem is that it is not a relaxing place to have a drink. All the seating appear to be reserved and yet empty at 11p on a Saturday night. Stone Rose gives the cold shoulder.
Great view, not so great service
By re506 on 1/15/2008
While the view is stunning and the food and drink are certainly decent, the prices are not and the service is practically nonexistent. My date and I stood by the door for close to ten minutes before anyone even noticed we were standing there, and even after we were seated, service was spotty at best--not to mention the fact that the prices did seem a little high. There are better options out there.
