    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.

    Stopped by for beer and ended up having an awesome lunch. Food competes with high end restaurants. The duck tacos were paired with black beans, corn and green onions. And of course the smoked porter was the perfect compliment. The service was also superb, friendly, fast and professional. We'll be baaaaack!

    Beer was awesome! We did not get a chance to tour the brewery, but will definitely come back and try it next time. Love the beer cheese soup. The food was good, although on the pricey side. 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!

    So if you love serious beer and want to have a lovely lunch or dinner in a great setting, this is for you. Food is fresh, locally sourced, and elegant. Everything was fresh, perfectly cooked, and delicious. Indoor space is airy with views of outdoor space and brewery operations. Outdoor space has comfortable dining and gardens to wander and relax.

    I wasn't expecting the food to be as good as it was, as stone is known for beer. I was pleasantly surprised though. The bison chop my girlfriend got was surprisingly tender and my arrogant brisket was so tender and flavorful, it nearly melted in my mouth.

    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.

    I've come here to dine 3 times over the course of 4 years and with such a big gap between visits you would expect a difference in the quality and dining. Each time though, it's as if I was there just yesterday. The quality is always superb, the taste is fantastic, and you can never go wrong with any dish you select because everything is balanced and unique. If you are a foodie, you must eat here. If you enjoy fine dining, eat here, but keep in mind the atmosphere is not fine dining. The decor and food are, but the dresscode and feel of the place is casual. So you can come dressed up a little or in sandals and jeans and not feel out of step with the rest of the patrons.

    I highly recommend asking to be seated outside if the weather is nice, the atmosphere they have created on the patio is great, especially if you get a table on the edges overlooking their pond and garden area. My wife and I each found a beer on tap that fit our own preferred tastes which we enjoyed greatly. The food itself can be hit and miss. They have some great concepts, but sometimes the execution can fall short of the expectations they create with the menu. The bright spot of the night for both of us was the Tilapia Ceviche, it had the right mix of acid, heat and freshness which we thoroughly enjoyed.

    We love going for the beer, but we stay for the food. The stinky cheese plate is divine! The quail knots are hot, and the Korean ribs are a nice mixture so sweet and heat. It's our favorite date night locale, but we would be comfortable bringing children as well. Once you are done, take a stroll around the gardens, just gorgeous!

    The restaurant and garden are absolutely beautiful, the ambiance is great, the beer is great, the food not so much. Stick to appetizers & beer, the food was bland and my husband got a plate of cold food. And it is hot inside even though they have huge doors that are open to the garden, we actually rushed to eat our dinner to get out of there.

    The brewery and grounds are amazing and the staff did a great job accomodating us but the wait to order drinks and food was long and it took over an hour to get food out for a party of 23. Staff was friendly and knowledgable and the food was good but one pork chop came out raw which they were happy to replace but no one even apologized for the wait or raw pork which would seem appropriate. I own a small casual Mexican restaurant and I make sure my staff apologize even for a mistake on a $5 plate so perhaps I'm biased. We spent $1K but have to admit I was a little disappointed with the experience over all which was a gathering for my 40th birthday with close friends and family. Still love the beer and will go back but not with a large party.

    Although I come mainly for the beer, I enjoy the food as well, which is a plus, but the great thing about Stone and what I admire and want to incorporate into my own company is that you've created a culture for beer drinkers. Shirts, coasters, etc., it's more than just a beer. It has become its own empire! You've made drinking cool, similar to wine enthusiasts, how they compare the different types of reds, whites, etc. I don't go to Stone Brewery to just slam down beers, I go to enjoy 2-3 great quality beers and really enjoy it!

    Everything was excellent! I would definitely come back! We started with the baby back ribs and the tilapia ceviche with some beer sampling and the blood orange refuge. AMAZING!! For the main course, we had the yummy BLT and the brisket. We both preferred the BLT but both were great. The tour was good but a little on the boring side, yet it ended with a wonderful beer tasting and you get to keep your tasting glass! I bought a tank top, a sweater and a coaster to savor this moment =)

    Couldn't have asked for a better date night for two foodies who love beer. The ambiance is lovely with lots of natural stone and foliage which helps to cut the noise from all the people (it gets really busy on weekends, so get a reservation)! The quail knots were perfectly fried and had a nice amount of spice and the olives were not too greasy. For entrees, the arrogant brisket and the bison were to die for! Cody, the waiter, was extremely helpful with choosing beer pairings that fit our tastes to go with each stage of the meal. Once again, great job Stone!
