    Beautiful spot- building charming, gardens gorgeous. But, prices ridiculous! $100 pp for lunch? We shared a salad and had no dessert. A bottle of water was, seriously, $15. I had an appetizer, (one crab cake )and my husband had halibut tacos. All the food was excellent. Drinks were very expensive as well. Blood Orange margarita $25. Service was ok- a little slow getting our drinks as “ bar was busy”. I received a gift card for my birthday which is why we went. I’d recommend going one time as it’s really beautiful, but with so many choices of good dining in Santa Barbara, we most likely won’t go back.

    This restaurant is the most beautiful place I have ever been. Incredible food but honestly worth it just to sit in the most peaceful and romantic garden and walk the grounds. If ratings went above five stars, it would be for stonehouse.

    This was one of the best meals we've ever eaten. For appetizers, I had the Venison Agnolotti, my wife the Peach and Melon salad. Wife really enjoyed hers, and I thought my dish was one of the best things I've ever eaten - it was truly outstanding! For main course, we did the Halibut and the Salmon. Again, just excellent dishes. Finished up with flambeed dessert. Truly an outstanding meal, on par with anywhere we've ever eaten.

    Thought everything was great except that “flat” water or pelligrino water was deceiving. Expected “flat” water to be tap, not bottled and cost was $15.00

    Stonehouse is more than just a restaurant- it is an experience. The setting, the food, the staff- every aspect was beautiful and top notch. Christian was a wonderful server. The grounds around the restaurant are also beautiful to walk around before or after your meal.

    Over the top amazing experience! Everything was perfect! We were celebrating our wedding anniversary with friends and couldn’t have picked a better location. Food tasted amazing (sea bass, fish & chips, short ribs, peach salad, mashed potatoes)! Service was above and beyond and the property is very beautiful. This dinner will be remembered for a very long time’.

    It was lovely. The only issue was construction on the property was happening so a lot of outside noise. Our server Christen was beyond amazing. He had a calming presence. So friendly yet do professional. He made the noise seem to not matter. We love the property!

    Definitely will not be back. Most of the staff were inattentive and not helpful. The food was absolutely one of the worst meals of my life. The focaccia was delicious, oysters fantastic, but the fish tacos were cold and tasted like they were from a sample table at Costco. The grounds are gorgeous, but the food was beyond awful. Go to the Miramar for better service and food.

    The food and the service were quite good and we will definitely be back. The one thing that marred an almost perfect experience was the automatic 20% tip added to our check. While I am more than understanding of automatic tips being added to large group checks, that automatic tip should be 18%, not 20. It was quite shocking to see that such a large tip was added and that the waitress would then show us where we could add more if we wanted to...our whole group thought it was just too much.

    Magical evening. Beautiful setting and ambiance. Started our evening with cocktails in the downstairs bar, walked through the beautiful gardens and then dinner upstairs on the semi enclosed patio. With the fireplace and heaters lit it was very comfortable. Dinner was wonderful. Everything was delicious and beautifully presented. Service was exceptional, polished, professional and inviting. Everyone we came in contact with made us feel most welcome even though we were not staying at the ranch. . Richard was our server and he was fantastic; welcoming knowledgeable, engaging and charming. We will return.
