    First visit to San Diego and being a craft beer fan, this was a must-stop. We had dinner in their beautiful outdoor setting and it was quiet and gorgeous. Very extensive menu that is veggie friendly and diverse. Terrific selection of beer on draft and in bottles. An overall great evening at Stone!

    Our only disappointment was that the dinner menu was somewhat limited, not enough basic items like pasta or burgers that go with a casual night and beer. Interesting menu, but we all went over it for a while wondering what would be good. The brisket was fantastic. Some of our party wanted more basic items such as a beef steak vs. a bison steak, simple things like that...

    It is not a surprise to connect great craft beer in San diego with Stone. But the chef, service, dining areas and the menu items are incredibly special also. We love this bistro because the dining experience is simply outstanding. Although the menu has a wonerful, variety my only suggestion is at least one more vegetarian (not pasta) entree. I enjoyed the wine selection, brussel sprouts app and the sea bass dish but would have also loved another vegetable option. Thank you to the chef and staff for another exceptional evening at Stone.

    Great brewery of course. very unique. service is very friendly and efficient. Did not have to wait long for anything. The Bizon chop was very tasty. The beef brisket was dry and not so tasty though. Pretzels Really great so was the Brussels sprouts.

    I've been to both this location and the Liberty Station one several times. The past two times I have had to shift around reservations at the last minute, but no matter what, they always had a table ready. Their beer cheese soup is always an excellent way to start a meal. I always try to have something different each time, and coming from the Pour It Black beer festival, decided to continue that trend in beverages and go with a dish to compliment in the form of the Arrogant Brisket, which was delicious. The meat practically melted in my mouth and all I needed was a fork to cut it. Service was excellent and everything was delivered at just the right time. I am not sure I can recommend eating here at least once strongly enough.

    Stone Brewery is a San Diego institution, that goes without saying. Every brew is exquisite and having it at this location makes it that much better and enjoyable. The location is AMAZING, and outdoor dining here is a must. The food, however, is lackluster, bland, and really void of anything special, which is unfortunate. I would have no problem throwing down $200 for a family dinner, as I did on this last visit, on a regular occasion if the food was actually memorable. When I come back, I'll pre-game with a dinner and food elsewhere, and only come here for the beer. Don't waste your hard-earned money for mediocre food.

    I found this restaurant thru Open Table and we ate here Fri nite after flying in. Really hard to find, especially in the dark in an unfamiliar place. We were glad we persevered, because we enjoyed the experience. The outdoor dining looked fabulous but we ate inside, which is also lovely. The beer selection is extensive but they have some nice wines too. I had the pork chop and my companion had the chicken schnitzel. Both were well-prepared and delicious. We shared a salad with grilled peaches which was good, and shared a brownie dessert which we enjoyed. Service was professional, staff were friendly. They have valet parking which i recommend. A very good experience.

    My wife and I went here for the first time. The beer and wine is very good and walking around the grounds is very relaxing. The meal portions(the one i had) seems a bit on the small side but it turned out to be very filling. I am a dark beer person and so far this place move to the top of my list. The service is top notch, friendly, and punctual.

    This was my 6th visit for dinner and it's been the same great experience each time. On this last visit, we sat and talked until closing. A manager very politely informed us that we had to leave and continued to talk with us as we made our way to the exit. I've had the bison chop twice so far and highly recommend it.

    This is a very special place and not your typical brewery dining venue. The setting it's magical with gardens, streams, and numerous places to tuck yourself away with a drink while you wait for a table. I went here with my family on vacation. We explored the gardens and then start in the modern indie setting. I had one of the tastiest meals I've had in a long time. The beer and wine lists are extensive.

    Stone Brewing Wold Bistro & Gardens in Escondido is a must visit. Perfect way to impress the out-of-towners looking for a new dining experience. From farm fresh foods to an excellent Beer and pretty good wine list, there is something for everyone. Veggies will love the choices. Carnivores will find several dishes to choose from. Then there is the architecture and gardens. From gargoyles in stone to a bubbling stream running through the heart of the restaurant, Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens has something for almost everyone.

    Stone's flagship bistro is an idyllic setting for a meal. While the food and service are average (and a tad over-priced), you can not beat the gardens for atmosphere. The mix of stone and plants lends a zen touch to dining, and one should take time to wander the short paths after the meal. As for the meal, the "soba" was actually served with ramen noodles, and unlike top-notch soba that has a silky quality (from fat), these were slightly dry and sticky. Not completely surprising -- high quality noodle restaurants are in short supply around San Diego, but for $18, one hopes for a little more. Wife had a salad with added salmon on top, which she absolutely loved. Beer recommendations from our server were mixed--some good calls, some not so.

I had the almond crusted tilapia which tasted great! My husband had the albacore melt, it was good too. Would recommend this place for hanging out with friends and drinking beer!

    I recently visited the Stone Brewing World Bistro on a visit from Seattle. My daughter who is a beer aficionado said it was 'must do'. I am so glad I did - the whole evening was wonderful. Great beer list... I had their 2012 Stone Old Guardian Barley Wine. Super! Menu was very diverse, and they specialize in organic locally grown veggies. I would highly recommend coming here for any type of occasion. It is a large place, huge outdoor seating area. They have the neatest outdoor garden area, where you can sit on a big rock or nestle in the trees with a date for a romantic setting, or wander through - children have room to roam as well.
