Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens - Liberty Station
The restaurant was a lot bigger than I had expected. The interior of the place was beautiful. The sticky ribs was my favorite dish. I went here for my graduation dinner and my guest loved it! The food was good and reasonably. Will definitely come back here. Great for groups and dates. Oh, and the outdoor seating is really pretty at night.
Okay for having beer, but food service was really not satisfying that day.
Hosted my son's SDSU graduation party at Stone Brewery - Liberty Station. It was everything we wanted. Great ambiance, food and service! Would definitely recommend for small and large groups
Overall, a very pleasant experience! Service was courteous, but a bit slow. Food was very good - kids' marinara pasta was outstanding - they actually finished it which they never do! Would be nice to have more vegetarian/vegan options A bit too loud for my liking - difficult to carry a meaningful conversation and was tough for our older guest with hearing aids.
It took a very long time for drinks and food to be served to our table. Dinner was served 1 1/2 hours after we sat down at the table
We enjoyed our time at Stone Brewing. The staff were efficient and courteous. We had a large party of 11 with reservations and were seated promptly. The food was so so. Small portions. The guys in the group had to fill up at the food booths in the Market area. The beer was perfect. Overall, it was an enjoyable dining experience.
Good morning groh and thanks very much for 5 Stars and also for posting your review. We're happy to hear you had an enjoyable experience. Cheers! Scott
The place is nice enough, I have eaten here before and the food is good, but nothing special. We chose this place for Mother's Day lunch because it can accommodate a large group, we were 8. It also has a nice outdoor area and was centrally located for our family to meet. However, we had a reservation and still had to wait 20 minutes to be seated, and that was only because I checked in with the hostess to ask what the delay was or who knows how long we would have been waiting. Once seated it took a while for our server to come and get out drink order. We ordered usual drinks, nothing special and a lemonade for my granddaughter. We all got our drinks and our server said he would be back with the lemonade. At this point we were all hungry and ready to order, so I told the server that when he came back we would be ready to order. He never came back. No lemonade no food order. After 40 minutes I went to the Hostess and asked if they could please find our server, get the lemonade and have someone take our order. She brought the lemonade and at that point we were all fed up and we just asked for the check, since we still had not seen our server. The manager came and spoke to my husband and said that it was their fault because they gave the server too many tables. Well if we had a reservation, they should have staffed properly, especially on such a busy day. They almost ruined the day. We moved on and had a great day elsewhere. I have to say that I will never go back. Not worth the aggravation. Very disappointed.
Service was a bit slow but other than this, it’s always nice.
Mother’s day with the family. A lot of planes departing the San Diego Airport that generates noise.
Great service and great food! Can’t beat that!
We love this place but wait staffing was off the night we were there. Looked at our watches and realized we'd been there an hour, had drinks and finished appetizers and we STILL had our dinner menus and our order hadn't been taken. The waiter was apologetic and comped some items but I hope they fix whatever was going wrong.
Hi Mom2four and thanks for letting us know about your experience. I apologize for the extended delay. We are diligently working on staffing efficiencies and it sounds like we were off that night. We appreciate your feedback. Have a great day. Scott
Our server went out of his way to help with moving an umbrella for us. He was great.
Thanks for your post Tonyl and we're excited to hear you had a great time. Cheers! Scott
Perfect for celebrating after a college graduation!
We made our reservation a month in advance and we had the private table with amazing ambiance by a fireplace. My salad was amazing (fruity goat), the burgers were just okay according to the rest of the party which was disappointing for a $15 Burger. But the ambiance was nice, the Brussels sprouts were great too!
Good afternoon KellyW and thank you for 4 Stars. I will be sure and pass your comments about the burgers along to our Chef. Scott
Great experience for my birthday dinner. The beer and food and service was all great. The only downside was the portion sizes. I ordered Mac and cheese to share with my husband for an appetizer and 3 tacos for dinner and was still hungry.
Hello KatieK and thanks for your post. We'll take a look at that portion size on the mac & cheese. Cheers! Scott
The setting was fantastic. Our waiter was fun and very helpful. The beer was of course top notch but the food was just ok. Would certainly go back again.
Always a fun place to visit. Beer is exceptional and our server helped us figure out which ones would be good for our pallet. Food was tasty, however it would be nice to have more vegetarian options.
Always a favorite whenever we have out of town guests!
Thank you JoeE! Scot
I was able to get a reservation, same day, for a party of 5 on Saturday at 5:00. We requested a table outside and were seated as soon as we arrived. All of the food was delicious! We were on vacation so had already eaten a lot during the day so we ordered several starters, tacos and salads and shared a beer flight. We had two vegetarians in our party and they easily found food to eat. Great service too. Our waitress was always checking in with us and kept our drinks full. We’ve been here before and will continue to come when we are in San Diego.
Hi LaurenN and I'm happy we were able to accommodate your group this weekend. Awesome you had a great time and thanks for 5 Stars! Cheers! Scott
Best place for family! Fantastic service
Thank you!! Scott
The ambiance was the best thing going. After my hair was almost burnt by a sparking patio heater we ordered food and werent too impressed. The waiter helped immediately and was attentive to the sparking patio heater. I ordered the Ceasar salad and black and blue tips and the ceasar salad had whole anchioves in it which was overpowering when bitten into..and the steak tips were ok. My husband ordered the NY and it was way undercooked so we sent it back, then it came out burnt tasting like char! We will not be returning.
Hi LindsayO and thanks for visiting and posting your review. Sorry to hear about that sparking heater. I hope you're ok. We'll have our maintenance team check them all out today. Also, sounds like we could have done better on the food. My apologies. I'll share your comments about the food with our Chef and also reach out to you via private email as well. Thank you for your feedback, Scott
Our service was horrible. Our waiter forgot drinks, didn't get our order correct and we asked for a propane heat lamp for our table and he did not provide one after telling us he would. Then when the bill arrived he didn't split our checks like we asked him to and he charged me for the beer I never received. I was very excited to try liberty station, but after our experience I will more than likely not be coming back.
Hi ZackR and I'm so sorry that your experience was not good. Too many mistakes and after all of that, our server failed to alert on duty management. My apologies. I'll also plan to reach out to you personally. Sincerely, Scott
Another amazing experience at Stone! Food and ambience was wonderful as always! The beer selection there is second to none as you’re able to sample some deep cut Stone beers you’d never see in the stores! Always a great annual trip that we love and highly recommend!
Hi Anonymous and thank you sooo much for your review! Cheers! Scott
Stone never disappoints. We dine here every couple months and have always been pleased. There were four of us and a baby. Sat outside with plenty of room for stroller. Food included pretzels, salads, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, chicken wienerschnitzel and of course beer. All yummy!
LilBuc, Good morning to you and thanks for 5 Stars. Cheers! Scott
I was really excited to try this stone location, it’s much closer to home and we enjoyed the Escondido location, just a bit of a drive. I was super dissatisfied with the food. The chicken schnitzel was moist but super flavorless. I asked for lemon wedges which helped and had to request salt. The wings were room temp, the sauce was tasty and the bleu chz was good but they give you almost none, a smear on the plate. The pretzel was a let down, it seemed like it had been sitting in a warming drawer all day and then in the window for another 30 mins for almost 10 dollars you hope for more. But, the beer selection was good and my bf enjoyed his selections, and they have wine for people who don’t like beer. Server was friendly.
Sorry to hear we didn't execute properly on the food. I will be sure and share your comments with our kitchen leadership team. Thanks for your feedback. Scott
All around terrific experience. Food, service, and atmosphere we're excellent.
A great meal and awesome beer
Poke nachos could have been better. Fish tasted pre-frozen. Not other than that, we had a great time!
Hi AprilleC and thank you for visiting and also for 4 Stars! Scott
Love it, the best draft beer ever.
Place is really nice, pet friendly.
The food is good.
Hi Cristy! Thank you for 5 stars and we're happy you had a great time. Scott
Day trip to San Diego. Loved the ambience. Large venue to accommodate family friendly seating and for large groups.
Hi Tomi and thanks for posting your review, we appreciate it! Scott
Are servers were amazing, friendly and personable. The bartenders name was Ryan and his knowledge of beer was outstanding. Are food servers name was shillelagh and she was very personable. Her ability to manage a big table 14 total was fantastic. Highly recommend Liberty Station Stone Brewery !!!
Hi Jim W and thank you for 5 stars and also for the Ryan & Shellelagh shout outs! Cheers! Scott
Beautiful setting with outdoor sitting area. Great beer selection. The breading on the chicken schnitzel was perfectly crispy but the flavor of the chicken, coleslaw (bland), and potatoes (overwhelming sweetness) was not good. Service was good. Pretzel was good.
Dear Anonymous, Thank you for taking the time to let us know your experience. I will pass along your comments about the schnitzel to Chef. Thanks again and have a great day! Scott
Really nice place. Good beer selection. Otherwise the service was subpar. Started out great and we samples a lot of nice brews. Then after the order, our server disappeared and it prob took 1hr for us to get our rather simple order. The food then came out cold, and the kids tenders came out like they were reheated 10 times before. The quality was just not there for me. Especially for highly reviewed place like this. I would not come back here, and will not recommend to anyone.
Hi ikbb and thanks for taking the time to let us know about your experience. Holy cow, Sorry it took so long to receive your food, then the chicken tenders were a disaster. My apologies. I'll be able to back track and determine who the server was. What's troublesome to me is that server was unaware or ignoring the service you were receiving, and didn't let a manager know. Sorry about that. I'll also send you a private reply. Sincerely, Scott
Great place with great food. Just one of the places you become happy when you enter - the food was delicius - must mention the Chinise Sticky ribs.... to die for... :)
Hi MonikaA and thanks for your review! Scott
Lovely patio area.
We had a large party and sat outside on the patio, which was very pleasant and enjoyable. However, we didn't find the service to be especially accommodating. We waited awhile to be seated because we increased our reservation, which I understood. But when we went to the bar to wait, we saw that the patio had several tables not marked reserved that could have easily been moved around to accommodate the increase of a few more seatings, but no one did that. We waited for another 15 minutes only to be seated at a table that was already set up to begin with (we could clearly see it from where we were in the bar.) Once we were seated and ordered our lunch which was about noon, we waited until 1:00 and when we still hadn't received our meals, I asked the waiter about it and he said he would check. Within a minute of him checking our meals suddenly appeared so they must have been sitting for some time and he just hadn't bothered to check. Then one of the lunches wasn't served so we asked and he had to go order it again before it finally arrived.
Fast seating. Fast service. Clean. The outside is beautiful. The beer tastes great. The food was hot and fast. I will definitely go back!
I really enjoyed the the beer and food, and the service we had was great. But be warned, the outdoor garden can be loud as it is directly under the arrivals approach for planes landing at San Diego airport.
Hi asimplechord an thank you so much for posting your 5 star review. We're really happy to hear you enjoyed your experience. Scott
