This was our second time trying Stoneground Kitchen & we will definitely go back. The service & food are really good. Can’t go wrong w/any of the salads or pizzas, & the pork tenderloin w/polenta & blackberry sauce is fabulous.
Allison, the hostess, is very friendly to everyone, & she makes everybody feel welcomed.
Only negative, is that they do not offer decaf espresso or coffee.

Great food and service. The booth we sat at had flimsy backs that it shared with the booths on either side. When the party on the other side would move it felt like riding in the rumble seat of a Model T. Other than that, it was very good! The Black Taglietella pasta is the best pasta I have ever tasted in my entire life.

Was looking for a restaurant for a quick date night with my wife and found this restaurant on OpenTable. The restaurant did not disappoint. Located on the 2nd floor, the restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating. We were seated at a booth. The ambiance was kind of lounge type, fireplaces inside and out. Very chill. The service was great and the food was even better. Had their House Lasagna which did not disappoint. Would definitely go again in the near future.

I loved everything about this place, the food, the ambiance, the staff- all exceeded my expectations! We started with the focaccino appetizer, for the main entrees we enjoyed the puttanesca, the house lasagna and the salmon, and rounded out the evening with the homemade doughnuts!! Everything was delicious!! The space is rustic and charming! The only downside to this place is the homeless encampment in the parking lot behind the building. This isn’t the restaurants fault, but it’s out of control and makes you feel a bit uneasy parking back there! Other than that, we can’t wait to eat at Stoneground Kitchen again! Loved it!!!

We had an absolutely excellent meal. The space is great, the service was fantastic, and the food was so good. We really enjoyed the meal. The Ham and hot honey pizza is ridiculously good. The Lasagna was filled with amazing sausage. The doughnuts and budino rounded out a great evening.

We had the fixed Sunday dinner menu. The pizza options were incredible! Salad, bruschetta, pasta and pizza were the courses. I was surprised it was served sort of all at once instead of in courses, but it wasn’t an issue. Our waitress was hilarious and everything about the experience was great.

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.

What an incredible taste experience! I was very pleased with the quality of the food as well as the taste. It was not basic on any level. The server was able to recommend lovely wine pairings for the appetizer as well as the main dish. Easy to wait at the bar, and even dine at the bar as a choice. I had the tagliatelle and I was speechless. Wonderful taste! The ambiance was warm and inviting, can't wait to go back and try more dishes!

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
