26 Reviews for Styx & Stone Bar & Restaurant
We were seated and orders taken, 45 mins later my garlic bread came (dry and tasteless) and I had to ask twice to find out why it was taking so long.
After an hour (yes more than an hour after ordering) our stone grills arrived (it’s not like they had to cook the meat) and my salad was shrivelled, was told can’t do garlic butter (as meal arrived) and not one person asked to refresh our drinks in the whole time we were there.
Staff were not pleasant and there was an obvious argument going on between duty manager and kitchen staff (tea towel thrown through serving hatch)
Was given considerable discount and a voucher, but do I really want to go through that again???
Having made a booking we waited 10 minutes to be seated and were only seated after approaching a member of staff to request a table.
The meals took an hour to come out after two reminders to the waiting staff. What were they doing? Fish and chips, nachos and a salad don’t take an hour to prepare!
Complaining to the member of staff that claimed to the owner, she didn’t seem to mind that she would have six unhappy customers walking out so long a she got her money. Still not sure if she was actually the owner as I’ve not come across a business owner that cares so little about customer feedback.
Post earthquakes I had been told of Styx and Stone to try by a friend as they had dined there and enjoyed the meal they had.
I found the surroundings of the restaurant very much to my liking with a number of areas you could be seated at.
The staff were friendly and very responsive to my requests, which I appreciate when treating myself to a meal out.
I found the menu choices were wide a varied which was great as it allowed me to try dishes that the bulk of other restaurants don’t provide, especially the Stone Grill.
I have to say all of the meat was beautifully tender and of generous proportions, with good sized side dishes of side salads.
All through the meal the staff were attentive even though the restaurant was full, courses were prompt and meal costs were very reasonable.
I’m not one for usually writing reviews on restaurants but Styx & Stone proved to be a very pleasant experience for my partner and I that I’ve made the effort to do so.
A great experience with delicious food and friendly staff, which isn’t hard on the pocket, good on you Styx & Stone I will definitely be back and telling friends and acquaintances about your top notch restaurant.
Couldn’t sit where you wanted made us sit in a dark corner even though most the seating by the windows were empty the whole time we were there.
40 minutes to get an open chicken sandwich…
Drinks they forgot twice to serve us….
Staff are more interested in talking to them selves behind the bar….
Overall couldn’t recommend this place to anyone.
I have had the stone grill twice now and I have to say that the Quattro was my favourite. Being able to sample 4 types of meat on the one stone was perfect!!
A great place for a small or large group and plenty of icy cold beer on tap!!!
We were thrilled by the meals. The Stone Grill was such an awesome idea and something we hadn’t experienced before. Very tasty food and generous servings, yet not over the top.
Desserts are to die for with a large selection to choose from.
The atmosphere was great. Very chilled back and relaxed, somewhere you could go and have a drink or two with a lovely meal or a coffee and cake in front of the blazing fire.
We look forward to returning to Christchurch in the near future and this will certainly be somewhere I will recommend to friends.
Last dining was 26th June, and have never had a problem with anything. Maybe the people who gave a bad review just picked a night with possible illness of staff?? I would highly recommend dining here and see for yourself. We’re planning on going this week.
We have been coming into your Bar now for a while and have always been happy with the service we receive.
However I feel that after dining at your Restaurant with my friends this week i feel it was only fair to let you know how disappointed we felt.
We all felt like we were a bother for dining in and a real inconvenience. It is such a shame to have taken friends who we had raved about the place to feel so disappointed.
Listen I feel so strongly about this because all 4 of us felt the same. The biggest problem we had was with our meals.Our meals was very and i stress very average and in one case a meal was hardly touched. Even small things such as the sauce was not the same, and something so small as this is what we loved. When we were asked if we were happy with our meals It then came clear there has been a change in your kitchen staff.
I just feel your staff need to pull their socks up. We had only dined in a few weeks ago and were more than happy with our meals.
