My friend & I were looking for a fun place to eat & Stone was the right choice. We are both seniors & enjoyed the atmosphere. Dining outdoors was excellent.

We celebrated my son's graduate school graduation and I'd asked for a table near the fire/fountain which the staff accommodated. The food is just so so, but the atmosphere is incredible.

Finished off the day at Sea World with an evening adventure at Stone. We loved the food and the beer is phenomenal as expected. It was a slightly breezy evening, however the hostess accommodated our request to sit next to a heater outside. Service was outstanding, and everything tasted better than it looked. Would have taken pictures but we dove right in! If you enjoy craft breweries and gourmet non food truck food, this place is a must.

The food and drinks are great! We had a wonderful time visiting.

FYI, The men’s bathroom smelled terrible when I was there Sunday for lunch. One of the hand dryer machine didn’t work. I wish there were hand towels for drying hands. Hopefully these can be improved.

Thanks!

It was all bad:
1-they did not acknowledge our 46th wedding anniversary even though I put that in as a special occassion in Open Table
2-chicken was incinerated, do they use a flamethrower?
3-water not refilled
4-WAITED FOR THE FOOD 20 MINUTES+ TOO LONG
5-WE had to stand up and walk over to the bar to catch our waiter to pay for the meal, we waited and waited and waited probably not his fault he was loaded with work

I like that they take reservations; 2 days before Sunday birthday lunch I got a table for 3. Disappointed that our table was right at the door with staff running in and out and hostess said no there table was available when I saw the place half empty.
Our charming waitress was knowledgeable and helpful with the menu and drinks.
Unfortunately our BLT Bruchetta sandwiches were served on stale untoasted
Ciabatta rolls with a large amount of undressed wilted arugula, which was inedible. The Tandoori chicken caesar salad was just ho-hum.
It's a beautiful location with great beer, and we will return. Just sub par for what was to be a special occasion.

Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens is a beautiful and captivating atmosphere with friendly and courteous staff. The beer is amazing and worth the trip. It is the closest thing that I have found to a Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory for adults.

The quality of the dishes produced by the kitchen varies tremendously. I eat at Stone Bistro 6-8 times a year, so have noticed this. I had tofu added, and it was fine. But, overall, my last visit was a great disappointment. I hope that this visit was an anomaly, because the food used to better prepared.

We had a wonderful lunch experience as always. The food was amazing as well as service and ambience.

The only issue I might have had was the unusual amount of little children running around and being quite loud. It is spring break, but still odd for this type of place. Yesterday, it felt like more of a daycare, but what can you do.

Unfortunately there were several families with out of control children running around as I believe it may have been spring break at the local elementary. These parents obviously didn’t care that their children were interrupting others lunch.

We went to Stone Brewing this year for Easter lunch. Service was great, beer was good, food was good although the menu is small and it is not possible to get a non-vegetarian option for a burger. Everything was fine, but not amazing.

This was my first time coming here and it was a very nice place. Very open inside and the outdoor area was fun and unique. We sat inside since it's still cold once the sun goes down and my only complaint about the restaurant is where our table was located, just outside of the restrooms. Since my son got to the restaurant before me, he didn't bother to ask the hostess for another table so unfortunately the whole time we were there we got to hear..."Kaaaswoosh" from the restrooms. :(

We needed a quick turnaround as we had to deliver my son to the airport. We told the waitress we needed to be out in 75 minutes and she got us out comfortably in 60 minutes, because she made the effort to insure service would happen in a timely fashion.......Well done!

One problem with Stone is trying to make a telephone booking as the phone seems to go unanswered. Yes you can use Open Table but I prefer to talk directly to the restaurant.

Stone Brewing is a must when visiting the San Diego area. It was my 2nd time back and just as great as I remembered. The brewery tour with Noah was fantastic. He was very interactive and knowledgable about all aspects of the brewing process. By far the best tour I've been on to date. The selection of beers on draft can't be beat - from Stone brews to guest appearances, there is something new for every hop-fanatic to try. The food is spectacular as well. You must try the quail wings and beer pretzels. Stone is unique with its bar open to a beautiful bamboo garden which is perfect for enjoying beers and the company of friends. Plenty of photo ops too!

We'd been looking forward to our dinner at Stone for some time. We had reservations around Christmas but those plans were canceled. I've never been to a restaurant/brewery that paired their beer with their food. In fact their menu is created around their beers (which are waaaaay above average). Our server, Austin, was delightful, fun and very friendly. We enjoyed ourselves tremendously.

There still seems to be a gap between their successful beer and the food they serve. I’m not sure what it is, but the food doesn’t pair well and is inconsistent versus their flagship product. This does not mean I don’t like it and that I wouldn’t recommend, but for overall dining options, there are other choices.

Our group of six had a nice birthday lunch. Our first time here. Food is excellent and obviously a great beer selection. Our server was very effficient and food arrived quickly. We ate inside but the outdoor area looks very inviting as well. Sound level was quiet to moderate but this was an early Friday lunch. Would probably be a bit noisier on a Saturday night. Overall, excellent experience, will go again.

I’ve been to this bistro 5 times so far. The service is always great. The server is always polite and they have extensive knowledge on the beers offered here. (They’ll have an answer to ALL of your questions.) This last visit for me, I ordered the strip steak and potatoes. The potatoes were cold and the steak was warm, not hot. My boyfriend had the Impossible Burger, who’s name is the perfect description for what it is. It’s a plant based patty but it taste just like a real burger. His meal also came lukewarm. The appetizers here that are great are the quail knots and the pretzels. Both are to die for. (Both came piping hot, as they should) As far as desserts go, there’s nothing on the menu to brag about. I’ve tried all their desserts except the horchata panna cotta and I’ve never been able to finish a single one. They’re really not that great. I’ll continue to come to stone. It’s a wonderful place, beautiful garden, great TABLE service, and pretty good food. When you go as much as I do, you just know what to and what not to order.
