The service was SO SLOW. We had an 8pm reservation and ordered one round of drinks, appetizers and simple meals. It shouldn't have taken two hours. When trying to get our check, our server literally avoided the table, saying she had to take care of something else first. We'd been looking for her for over 10 minutes. It's a great vibe and the food is good, it just took too damn long and the server was so inattentive.

Glad to see a new menu...finally! We took a chance this evening and were pleasantly surprised. However, our server was less than attentive even with given the night had slowed down quite a bit. It's never fun to be contemplating, "if she's not back in 5 minutes I'm not ordering another drink."
The goat cheese salad with salmon was excellent and I'd order it again and again.

Even though we had a reservation we had to wait 20 minutes for our table. Service was horrible, the worst I've had anywhere in a long time. It was a special event which made it even more disappointing. This used to be one of my favorite places. I don't think I'll go back, there are so many better options now.

We have been to Stone multiple times in the past and had nothing but great experiences. This past trip wasn't too great but we will still go back. There are many more children running around the grounds without their parents screaming and playing tag which was a bit of a bummer. The kitchen was backed up which is understandable and they were behind on their reservations as well. Our reservation was at 6:45pm but we didn't get seated until almost 7:20. When we did get our food, 2 of the 4 plates we got were cold. We also got served a beer with lipstick on the glass. I must point out though, our waitress was on it, she immediately took it away and got us another glass. Overall though, I was pretty disappointment in comparison of our other trips. I'll still go back but it won't be any time soon

We were there for the first time celebrating my husband’s birthday. Our table was outside by the koi pond. The grounds are beautiful and we had a very pleasant experience overall! The service was a little more laid back then what we like and not as attentive, but it wouldn’t deter us from coming back again.

If you're IPA folk, this place is a must. As we are not IPA fans, we ended up trying at least 10 beers that were identified as Lagers, Pilsners and Ales. All had various levels of a hoppy IPA finish's. Our server (John / an excelent server went above and beyond the call ) John, finally found us a guest larger (Farmhouse Lager) that was very good.

From and architectural, garden experience and decorating standpoint, the place is awesome and worth checking out. SB has created a very cool destination.

The wife and I are in our late 50's.
With that said, it is our opinion that we are outside the parameters of Stone's demographic. (Bummer)

Bottom line, we had a enjoyable evening and were taken very good care of.

We were on time for our reservation but it took 20 minutes for them to seat us when there were tables visibly open. When seated, it took 10 minutes for anyone to notice us. The food came out pretty quickly , but was average. They seem to change the menu often so right when I start to like something on the menu, they take it off. That was disappointing. :(. The ambiance you cannot beat though. Beautiful views of the garden and we were seated next to a coy pond. It was just so tranquil and relaxing. That is why we always come back!

The menu has been completely changed and while the food is good, the new menu is not as appealing as their old menu. The beer selection leans far too heavily on IPAs and Stouts with little attention given to other styles.

While the food is good, the ambiance and gardens are really the main attraction now which is disappointing as Stone has been a long time favorite.

We had reservations but arrived a little early. They were able to seat up but didn’t get a server for almost 40 minutes. Beer order was taken after 30 minutes but was brought 20 minutes later... and the Brussels sprouts are not the same... probably won’t kill my self to eat here again... I’ll just visit the tasting room in Oceanside.

The server was fantastic, I wish I could remember her name. The food was subpar for the amount of money that we spent. Mac n cheese was not creamy at all, tasted like it had too much flour in it or was baked too long... we also had the grilled cheese, chicken schnitzel (which the potato salad was more like bland mashed potatoes), and the burger (burger was great).

Much better menu than before! Would be even better if they would add regular fries to the menu though instead of “smashed potatoes”. People want fries with their burgers!

Love coming here, especially now that they have updated the menu. We usually sit in the bar, but this time we sat at a table and the service was excellent. Our server was Jonathan P. and he was amazing. He made great suggestions on beer and food and was constantly checking back with us to make sure all was good. Will be back, and hopefully sit in Jonathan’s section again.

Hadn't been here for a while. Love the new twist on the Pretzel and the sauces. My Crispy Skin Salmon was absolutely wonderful. My friends Bangers & Mash, wasn't exactly great. She said there was no seasoning in the sausage at all. Too bad 'cause it looked really tasty. A great meal. Service was top notch.

I have been to Stone many times, but last night was probably the worst service, and stone is not known for its good service. On Monday night, the restaurant was maybe half full. After sitting down getting my hello from the waitress and water, it took 45 minutes for our dinner to arrive. When I brought the long wait for our food up to the waitress she commented that we had a large party put in their order before us. Of course Our dinner came about five minutes after I made my comment. It was employee karaoke night, so plenty of employees were out in the private space having fun, but not too many were actually serving guests.
I always forget about your poor service until I come back.
