 (New York Area)·Dined 2 days ago

I have dined at this restaurant many times since it opened in 2013. It remains one of my favorite restaurants in Seattle with its diverse menu that pleases everyone.

Along with many delicious side dishes and appetizers, we ordered the special steak -- a so-called 24 oz NY strip grilled and sliced. We were splitting amongst 4 people and pairing this with several grilled or broiled vegetable side dishes. We were notified that because if its size, the steak would take a long time to cook, so the whole meal was timed around the steak. We ordered it medium rare. It arrived and was overcooked, some of it to medium well. One end slice which was thicker did appear medium rare. We all agreed the steak was over cooked, including the server, so it was returned. She later came back to say that when the steak was taken back to the kitchen "in better light" it was as ordered, med rare. (sorry, I have cooked a lot of steaks, some very thick, many of them NY strips and rib eyes, and you can tell by texture in addition to color. This was over cooked 2 steps.). We were asked if we wanted to re-fire the veggie dishes and we said no, that they would be fine. The second steak came and it was better, but still not genuinely medium rare. We didn't complain because it was getting late and we were hungry. Also, I would argue about it being a full 24 oz (before cooking). It was bone-in, but appeared much smaller than 24 oz.

Anyway, it was a great evening, and everything was good including service. The sommelier was great at recommending various wines. The side dishes and apps were all excellent.

They handled the steak issue well, comping us a couple dessert wines each to pair with the 2 desserts that we shared.

A side-bar is that this restaurant is "related to" Bastille Cafe, also in Ballard. I stopped going to Bastille because they always overcook meat dishes -- from burgers, to steaks, you name it. So maybe they were utilizing the Bastille chef this night at Stoneburner.

We have been for brunch and it was amazing. Tried dinner and were so surprised that it wasn’t very good. Not sure if the regular chef was gone or not. Everything was way too salty. The meatballs had too much lemon zest in them. The two pasta dishes were both too al dente. The service was great though. Probably go back for brunch, not for dinner.

Two of the best pasta dishes I’ve eaten. Spaghetti carbonara not on the menu and toasted gnocchi with pork bits and egg. Pizza is always a hit.

The service and food are excellent.
The crowd festive.

But it's pricey. $18 for Brussels sprouts, and $18 for Faro salad? With two $24 entrees, dessert, and tip, it was $103.

No Drinks. No wine. Not a deal.

The wine we chose at first was not great. Our server got the wine Steward to come to our table. He brought 4 bottles of what he thought we would like and went through describing each.
Needless to say the wine we chose was delicious. We had two bottle! Great service

Spent a wonderful evening here for our last night in Seattle, got to really feel like we scratched more than the surface of the food scene. Was nice, slightly pricey, but great pizza and matching cocktails. Would be fantastic for a larger group, as it was it served its purpose to set the night up for success. The service was great with authentic recommendations. Dessert menu could serve to be improved, only had three options that were not gluten free. Nice street to bar hop on, even if the location was pretty far outside of the downtown core.
The gnocchi was probably the best dish, the lamb bacon was amazing.

We happened upon Stoneburner for a Saturday night dinner. It has a cozy atmosphere with a varied menu. We opted for several vegetable sides and the grilled octopus small plate. Everything was well prepared, delicious and well plated. We will definitely return to try some of their mains when we are hungrier.

Great service and very knowledgeable wait staff. I did not care for the Bloody Mary (handmade) at all- thick tomato juice, blah, and loaded with salt around the rim (pretty but WAY too much salt!) it was hard to get around salt to the drink. Expensive and hand made or not, would not order again.
I had the carbonara- pasta was cooked to perfection and poached egg was perfect- for me dish was too rich and I ordered the wrong item.

Tried this restaurant as part of Seattle Restaurant Week. The two of us shared one entre (white sauce pizza (10", the rim broiled to charcoal but the crust underneath very good and the seasoning very good) plus one $33 three-course-special dinner (brussels sprouts soup - unusual seasoning, quite good, very creamy and pureed beyond any recognition as brussels sprouts; meatballs with braised spinach - again unusual vinegary seasoning, and quite good; olive oil cake with ginger icecream and hucklebberry sauce - brilliant combination and fantastically good). No alcohol, $66 for the total bill including $10 tip - service was good. However, overall it was only barely good value for money for Restaurant Week. Would come back again for the dessert, however.

Was our first visit. Very Delicious food; everyone had something different....Gnocchi, Halibut, Steak, Octopus. Salads were fantastic. Only negative was noise level which was uncomfortably high. Service was excellent. Desserts while delicious....would't have minded if more simple. A simple sizeable slice of olive oil (bundt) cake (not sweet) with huckleberries would have been wonderful. Just cake and berries. No mascarpone and ginger ice cream necessary ... can always offer as an upgrade! Hope they also always have sorbet, fruit, and non-fruit flavors, for non-dairy guests. Will be returning to Stoneburner for sure.

Had an early dinner with family; just missed happy hour, unfortunately. Loved the burrata toast! 2 of the 4 of us were vegetarians, so choices were (as usual) a bit limited, but the carrots and cauliflower dishes were delicious. We did not have pizza, but I'm sure it was good. I was looking forward to the meatballs (I'm not a vegetarian!) but thought they were nothing special. I was excited to try to stuffed olives, and they were okay, but nothing to rave about.

The food was great, but for someone like my husband, the portions were not very large. It's probably better advertised as a tapas scene; you'll want to order a bunch and share. That having been said, I can see this easily becoming a pricy experience. It's great for special occasions, especially in the summer when they can open the windows.
