Diner Reviews
  • "Even though I made reservation, they did not seat us until 35 minutes later. I even had to ask the hostess when we will be seated she said you need to wait because we dont have any available seating and cant kick people out. What was the point of the reservation??? Secondly I put in a special request for outdoor patio seating on the reservation and they seated us INSIDE, not to mention that we were celebrating a birthday and I had to remind the waiter about it. The service sucked and the food was okay, nothing special; however, the scene was nice."

  • "We have been long time fans of stone since they were a very small microbrewery. We have eaten there many times. This experience was really sad. Service was slow we waited a long time for our food. I prefer wine with dinner. Glasses of wine are at 15 to 18 dollars for marginal wines. When I requested to try beforehand I was told no. We asked to speak to the service manager and he seemed very unconcerned. Our bill was 200 dollars for 4 of us. Given the service and the price I think we will skip it be t time."

  • "I scheduled a reservation a few days ahead only to be told that they were not taking anyone because of a water system failure. Well there went my organized evening."

  • "It had been several years since we last ate at Stone, and our experience exceeded our memory. The service, beer and food were all excellent. The outdoor dining area was elegant, but relaxed. It was lively with plenty of people, but not too noisy for conversation. It was a very enjoyable dinner for my husband and I."

  • "The look and feel of Stone Brewery is one that cannot be matched. It is unlike anything I have seen before. The food was great, the beer was delicious, and the view was special."

  • "Finally a comfortable place to enjoy without feeling out of place. Being a minority in a mixed relationship with a Mexican wife, we've always been made to feel unwelcomed. Just odd. But at Stone Brewery, patrons and staff seemed to have cared less. People did what I often expect people to do. Focus on their good time while the staff provides great service. Again, very relaxing and comforting!"

  • "We've been to the Gardens several times since it opened and always make it a stop when going to SD from Los Angeles. We felt that this time it lost its magic. My kid's Soba dish wasn't Soba noodles. My wife's dish was cold and not exactly what they said it was on the menu. Mine was overly salty. Maybe they've grown too big too fast, but the details that used to be there weren't. Hoping they'll find their way before our next trip down there."

  • "This is my second visit to Stone Brewing. It is a must for anyone in the San Diego area. Stone is known for having the best craft beer in the market. But they have built a beautiful spot for lunch and dinner or for those that just want to sample there fantastic beer. Whether you eat inside or outside the vibe is great. An eclectic menu that has something for everyone. I have had the duck tacos and the sausage on my two visits and both were unbeatable."

  • "I'm a fan of this restaurant and its concept. Setting, food, and energy are spectacular. And the beers--the best. I'm sure the wine is good too. Plaudits to the founders and their vision."

  • "I highly recommend dinner at Stone Brewery. We were more than thrilled that they offered a Meat Free Monday menu so they could accommodate our vegan diet. Service was initially a little slow to get our drinks and appetizers (the house was packed) but everything was absolutely delicious once it came. Exterior heat lamps kept us warm even the temperature dropped. The beer had more of a distinct hop flavor which pleasantly surprised us."

  • "Usually very good, had the seafood dish with marinara sauce, and it was very bland except for being very hot (spicy), no interesting flavors. I was disappointed."

  • "We celebrated my nephew's 40th birthday on a Sunday for lunch. Our waiter, Gabe, was most cordial and enjoyable and his service was excellent. His knowledge about the food and beer was most helpful in making our selections. My nephew's parents drove a 3-1/2 hour drive from Thousand Oaks, CA for the occasion, and said they would do it again just to go to Stone's. After we ate, we moved over into the 'parklike' setting to enjoy more drinks and birthday gifts. What a wonderful day it was. We'll be back."

  • "Made reservation for 20 people and they didn't seat us for 45 minutes!!!! They took my $200 deposit and didn't guarantee me a table! Start was terrible but food was good. Our waiters were good but still upset about our reservation. Not only did they not seat us at the time we reserved but they also took our $200 so we could't go any where else! Plus they closed 1.5 hours after they seated us so not a lot of time to celebrate our 2 birthdays."

  • "The reason we gave three stars even though food was a five was because they didn't make us feel special even though we posted open table reservation, told the hostess, and the waitress that it was our 17th wedding anniversary that night. we arrived at 5:30 pm they could not get us into a tour or a table early (our reservation was 7:15). It was our first visit and didn't realize that All tour tickets for the day are gone within minutes of being available at 1 pm. We were kind and waited patiently even though we couldn't even get a seat at the bar till 6:45. Thank God the waitress was nice and the food was amazing once we sat down even though they didn't even offer a dessert to mark our celebration. Wouldn't recommend for a romantic night."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Beers were amazing and the outdoor dining is unbeatable in the gardens. The off menu Mac and cheese with sausage was lived by adults, but not the kids. The seafood pasta special was only ok, but the grilled cheese and sausage plate were two thumbs up by everyone, although the spicy sausage was favored over the 'regular' one- amazing mustard on the side. Kids wanted a scoop of vanilla ice cream but dessert is just a cranberry bar adults liked but they passed on. Price is right for kids, service was super friendly, very helpful and fairly quick for a busy Saturday night."

  • "Our third time at Stone Brewing, this time we brought friends. Everyone loved it. The food, service and beer was fantastic. We were able to have some beer that can't be purchased in stores, perhaps one day it will be available and all four of us loved it. Fyodor was the name of the brew and it was memorable. The menu has something for everyone from vegans to carnivors and the food is top notch. We've eaten there the last two trips and been very happy each time."

  • "Visited Stone Brewery for the first time, although I have been imbibing of their excellent beers for many years. Most importantly it was very interesting to see that Stone is continuously experimenting with different brewing methods, yeasts, hops, etc. This is the place for beer connoisseurs! The grounds outside are a relaxing place to unwind and try beers or just sit and converse. It reminds us somewhat of the various beer gardens in Europe. Food also matched the quality of the beers with different variations of well known standards, but several interesting twists as well."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "The food is delicious, the beer selection amazing, plus they have a souvenir shop and its just amazing that you can stroll around the gardens with your beer and enjoy a great time."

  • "We have been coming for a long time and the food is always great, the environment awesome, but their service was not stellar. The brought our salad just after the main course was served; they did not bring another plate since I was sharing a main course dinner and we had to wait whilst the food got cold...the waiter disappeared.....no refills on water, iced tea.....took forever to clean up the table after eating.....really disappointed"

  • "Great beer selection although a little pricey, I equate it to going to the dealership, expect to pay a premium, good food, service was excellent, outside dinning was quiet, although it is a family place, maybe try a later time for less kids. Overall 4 outa 5"

  • "You can't beat the beautiful setting, great selection on tap, and unique menu in this area. I've never had a bad experience at Stone and I love bring people here from out of town."

  • "OK, I am just going to say it. I hate beer. I have never liked the taste. So, while on a recent vacation, my sister asked if I wanted to take a tour of this brewery. I agreed to go along because I knew my husband would enjoy it. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. We had lunch before the tour in their beautiful restaurant and the food was amazing. Everyone at the table ordered a meal with the beer pairing and thoroughly enjoyed it. (I had a glass of wine with the scrumptious BLT - no seriously, order the BLT...you won't be sorry.) The tour was very interesting and the tour guide was informative and entertaining. I tasted the beers, and confirmed my hatred of the vile liquid, but appreciated the efforts. Go. Go now!"

  • "Upon walking into the Stone Gardens and bistro we were promptly greeted by the friendly and knowlegable staff. The gardens are beautiful and although it seemed very crowded there was plenty of room. Beer was great- there is something for everyone, food was ok but we will definitely return."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "I made reservations for 6 people @7:15. We did not get seated until 8. The bar space was limited, we ended up having our wine in the gift shop. Once seated, it took a long time to get service and our food took an hour after we ordered. The food arrived cold, and over cooked. Management and server were apologetic and compensated by comping a round of drinks. I was disappointed, it felt more like a theme park than a dining experience."

  • "Good comfort foods. Pretzel appetizer was great. This is about having good beer food for good beer. Views of brewery and the outside gardens were very nice. A bit loud, but hour table was right in the middle of it all."

  • "Went to Stone with friends who met the Owner of Stone in another country. He encouraged them if they were to go to San Diego to visit the Escondido location. The beer was great, the food delicious, the gardens and architecture amazing. The service lacked severely, our waitress was not just unhelpful and unfriendly, she was actually rude and seemed irritated that she had to "wait" on our table. It really robbed us of a great night."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Great food and beer, but the outdoor portion for dining is a bit dodgy. Lighting was really poor at our table so it was hard to see what we were dating, but it was darn tasty."

  • "This is our "go to" place in Escondido. Love the beers, and they have a huge selection. Eclectic Menu-wish they would bring the Rib Eye Steak back. Bison is not our bag! I had my usual stand-by--brisket. Love it- especially the mashed sweet potatoes. Hubby had fish, and would definitely order it again. Our server and her "shadow" were great!"
