A friend and I came to Stoneburner because we heard about the great food and ambiance. I live in Everett, but the food was ABSOLUTELY worth the drive down to Ballard. We ordered the garlic ciabatta bread, the dutch fries, roasted broccoli (this one was my FAVE, it was charred and slightly crunchy, with a lemon tahini sauce that was to die for), carbonara, and meatballs (there were collard greens underneath the meatballs that soaked up all the sauce - heavenly, I tell you). It was pricey for sure, but worth going to (honestly, I would order like 3 more servings of the broccoli, no lie) just for the experience. If you enjoy a once-in-a-while bougie dining experience with delicious food, definitely visit Stoneburner. And a great tip we got from our server, if you order one item from every category (their menu is divided into categories) and eat family style, you get to enjoy a wider variety of things, versus just ordering an entree for yourself.

We were seated in the back corner of the bar and service was poor. It seemed as if everyone forgot about us because we had 5 different servers throughout our hour meal. There was no consistency in service and it took too long to get water, to order, to get our check, and for our cards to be processed.

Always a solid spot. The food and drinks are always top notch. There’s a great mix of pastas, veggies, and entrees that never get boring. The staff always know their stuff and make helpful suggestions.

Came here for brunch with some friends and we had a lovely time. It's a nice place and I love that they are trying out a creative menu, but the truth is, they could also use a little work here and there. I wish there was a "maybe" option instead of "yes/no" because I'm really split. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice place, but there are A LOT of nice places in Seattle. They take reservations for brunch however, which is a big advantage and much appreciated.

To elaborate, the presentation is very good, and the food itself is very good. I think it is just a little overpriced for what you get and there are better brunch spots out there however. Overall I wasn't super impressed with the selection on the brunch menu. A lot of the items felt more like lunch/dinner (spaghetti, a burger - no, just a regular burger). I'm sure these items are great quality, but when your brunch menu is already very limited, this stuff leaves even less for those who actually came here for brunch and there isn't much that they will be excited about. I wish they had more sweet items on their menu too.

I was a little disappointed in my bloody mary. Needs more/better pickles/toppings and it tasted a little watered down.

My brunch itself was pretty tasty, but it was rather greasy and I was unable to finish it due to this reason. I had the corn cake brunch. I loved the flavor however (the arugula and cheese went great with the corn cake).

Food was delicious! went on a Saturday evening and it was full, but the wait was only 30 mins. They have a special menu of items available for the evening that sells fast- we went do dinner by 8pm and 2 of the entrees had sold out already. Highly recommend

I love Stoneburner but I was really disappointed in the special pizza. It was so oily that I could barely eat half. Took the rest home but when i tried to warm it up in the oven it was like a sponge with oil. I hope they are more careful next time. The rest of the group had the traditional pizzas and they were great. The service is always great and so is the ambiance.

Appreciated being asked if we had any food restrictions before being asked what we’d like to order. This is a nice restaurant but I did not expect to receive such little food for the amount it costs.

Stoneburner is one of our favourite all time restaurants. It never disappoints. We had a lovely time, and the food was delicious and the dishes and combinations of flavours so unique. Our only slight disappointments were being seated at a high table with stools, instead of a booth with seat bags, and the music was a bit loud

Had not been here in several years and it seemed quieter than remembered. But that may have been due to the very cold and snow-threatening weather. Menu has changed somewhat -- still some interesting and unusual dishes. The biscuits and chili-gravy were good, with a couple of caveats: the biscuits are big and dense and really needed the soft-fried egg to moisten them; the limited amount of chili-gravy wasn't sufficient by itself. The tuna dip and potato chip dish was excellent: a nicely smoked tuna taste to the dip and very flavorful, crisp chips to put it on. Satisfying!

Despite having a reservation we had to wait nearly 25 minutes for our table. That would have been okay but there isn’t really a wait spot so we were stuck standing next to the door.

I don't know what it was last night, but our meal was perfect. The bread and ricotta, lamb pasta, broccoli, brussel sprouts, meatballs, lam chop, and the special -black cod. I feel like everything was just jiving in the kitchen and every dish came out perfect-I'm not exaggerating. So good. Thanks for a wonderful meal to round out 2019-truly special!

Price is too high for the very small portion of not very tasty food. Barmen makes drink not from scratch but from premix. I ordered Bloody Mary and it was so hot and spicy that I cannot drink it, literally. That drink I ordered many times in my long life itime n very different places and different countries and never have a such a problem.

I have never been disappointed the times I’ve come for dinner or happy hour. This time we arrived for brunch. The waiter was great and explained the menu well. But after we got our food we didn’t see him again. After I walked up to the hostess and asked for water and our check, which she brought, the waiter returned with our receipts and cards, plopped them on the table and mumbled a begrudging thank you. He was like a different person. ???
The food and ambiance were wonderful.

The portions are extremely small. the pasta dishes are served in small soup bowls and filled to a quarter of the volume. You need to order 2 entrees per person.

This was our one year marriage anniversary celebration with my parents. Drinks & charcuterie were lovely. Pasta & broccoli was DIVINE! Our server was impeccable! (I feel horrible I can’t remember his name) He surprised us with dessert for our special occasion!

The portion sizes were noticeably smaller. The meatballs (considered a "Large Plate") were smaller than ping pong balls, when they've typically been much larger. Moreover, the kale served with the meatballs was so scant, that I had to dig for the few leaves offered in the dish. The broccoli was also a smaller portion than what we've seen in the past. Maybe this is the restaurant's way to increase profits: Decrease portions by 25-30% and charge the same prices.

I haven’t been here for a while. The charcuterie board is good as always. We ordered two pasta dishes that were $20 a piece and smaller than an appetizer size and some burnt broccoli. Not impressed with tiny portions with a big price tag even for Seattle and left hungry.
