We were able to make a reservation about an hour in advance on Saturday. The ambiance was great and we really enjoyed being on the 2nd floor near the window. The squid ink pasta dish with lobster was top notch and the wine we bought was reasonably priced and good enough that we ordered a second bottle! We also tried some of the inventive pizzas, chorizo and honey was great, but the one with jam as the “sauce” was possibly a bit too inventive. All around, a great restaurant, highly recommended.

Would highly recommend! Great drinks and excellent food. The bruschetta is a must try! Our waiter, Samuel, was kind, welcoming and accommodating to adjusting the pizza options for a vegetarian friendly meal. Will definitely be coming back next time we travel through.

The food was great, wish I would have made my reservation sooner so that we could have had a booth. The atmosphere was nice, and service was good. I would return anytime.

Very innovative and delicious food. Attractive and warm atmosphere with stacked stone walls and a center hearth. Props to the accommodating bartender who made me creative mocktails that made giving up alcohol for Lent easier!

I never take the time to write these... We made reservations and were put in the back room and when I asked if we could sit in the main area where more than half of the restaurant was empty, the girl getting our table was extremely bothered by me asking.
We were coming for a special occasion and flew in town and picked this restaurant for our one night in SLC.
Then when I asked where the bathroom was she again seemed bothered by me asking and told me downstairs. Upon arriving to the bathroom there was a lock on the door with a code. I went back up stairs to the restaurant and asked a employee why the girl would not have told me there was a code in which he said “do you want me to fire her so that she can not pay her mortgage?” His tone was rude and absurd. I just walked away to have my dinner boxed and left. The food is only as good as the disrespectful employees

We love Stoneground and would definitely return next time we're in town. The food, service and vibe was outstanding! Our server was very knowledgable. She gave wonderful recommendations for both food and wine. They do have booths, so if you prefer that be sure to reserve at time of reservation.

Great food, amazing ambiance, good service.
It was quite noisy that would be the only thing that I would like to see different.
Definitely will recommend this to friends and family

This was my second time at Stoneground and it was just as good as the first! The focaccino is a must! I regretted not getting the black tagialtelli the last visit, so I did not make that mistake again. It was delish! The chorizo and hot honey pizza was perfection. No room for dessert but the table next to us got the homemade donuts which looked crazy good. Next time!
Will definitely be back.

We came here to celebrate our anniversary and was recommended to try it from a friend. Not really knowing what to expect, we left talking about how amazing it all was! The food was delicious and nothing like we had ever tasted. We asked for suggestions on pairing wines with our meals and they did not disappoint! The ambiance was great! "Mood lighting" good views of some of the city, great music, not too loud, friendliest staff, it was all just outstanding! This is now our favorite restaurant and we can't wait to go back!
