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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
