One of the most beautiful settings in Santa Barbara. The service was good but we had to ask for bread when no other table had to and the bread there is worth asking for. The food was very good and every precaution was taken to ensure the health of the diners. But what makes this restaurant is the Ranch. Give yourself time either before or after the meal to tour the grounds, they are spectacular.
Loved the atmosphere! So pretty. Great food and great service!
Always an incredible experience
If you are looking to celebrate a special occasion I highly recommend the Stone House! The location is beautiful, and I love the rustic elegance of the Stone House.
We love eating under the Loquat trees! I also can’t live without the tortilla soup every so often. The menu is quite limited right now, so entree choices are few. The bread with the seasoned olive oil is excellent. This is simply a wonderful place for the atmospheric alone!
Perfect every time!
We love the property; can’t wait to visit again!
We saw a large rat run across the patio.
Great experience, beautiful facility, terrific food, fabulous service. Would like to see some fresher and more creative menu items but everything we got was delicious.
My partner and I celebrated my birthday on a comfortably enclosed patio, near a heater. Our meals were beautifully presented, delicious, and the atmosphere was magical. Standout dishes were the halibut and the duck. Frankly, everything tasted great. Dessert was a wonderfully minty chocolate chip ice cream, apparently made on site. The service was quick and amiable. My partner and I both agree we had a memorable evening and plan to return.
This was the perfect place to stay and eat for our wedding anniversary. Not sure I’ll ever find a more beautiful place to share with my wife.
Phenomenal setting with exceptional service, and great food. Very romantic lunch for my husband’s birthday. Would recommend to anyone. Very personable waiter who stopped at nothing to make us happy and welcomed. Highly recommended
Outstanding environment for a special dinner with family, a mate, etc. Great food, great service.
ONLY comment, but important!!!! We were in the inside room......SOOOO dark!!!
Waiters had to shine a flashlight on EVERY food presentation, that is rather crazy!!!
So as you are eating, you are literally guessing what you are picking up on your fork.
This is NOT romantic........candlelight of soft lighting would be preferable.
nice lil place in the hood, cozy and off the beaten path
$50 for corkage for a bootle of wine, we think it’s a little bit too high, I think. And the fact that they put us in the cellar instead of the main restaurant when we made a reservation almost 3 weeks before was t what we expected. Maybe because we were just a 2 people party. All the rest was great
Beautiful place with very friendly staff! Food is great but need to pay attention to different menu’s if you choose to sit indoors or outdoors.
Service, as always, was top notch. Our party was very pleased with the food but I wasn't thrilled with the halibut. I found it overcooked and the asparagus cold. The chicken, the chestnut soup, the drinks and the desserts were fantastic. I asked at the time of my online reservation to be seated in the courtyard (we are frequent guests) and a little disappointed that it seemed to be ignored as it looked like there would have been seating available. Nonetheless, the ambience of the terrace was wonderful.
Outstanding service, food and atmosphere!
Wait staff was awesome and attentive.
Fantastic food and staff. Service was very nice.
A magical place to celebrate my birthday. Staff, ambience and food were wonderful.
Breathtakingly beautiful buildings, grounds and views. Food was mediocre, service a bit slow considering there were very few patrons at that hour. Unfortunately, we were seated next to a very boisterous couple that spoiled some of the ambience.
Mike provided extraordinary service and made our special dinner very special. His assistant, Al was also wonderful!
Everything, from the greeting at the entrance, to the table itself, to the level of service, to the absolute perfection of the meal...I will be thinking of this for a long time to come.
My fiancé and I decided to join San Ysidro Ranch’s Stonehouse for an early Valentine’s Day celebration. We had an absolutely spectacular evening. The dinner, the service and the ambience was truly stunning. Many of our dishes were prepared right in front of us. The entire dinner was a culinary masterpiece. Afterwards we walked the beautiful gardens and we’re memorized by the truly magnificent property. We will certainly be back as soon as possible to enjoy the rest of the menu.
We went here for the night after our wedding. It was extremely good food and very romantic. 5 stars!
Great meal and service as usual. Busy Saturday evening with well dressed diners enjoying a beautiful night under the stars of Montecito. The scallops and halibut were delicious paired with the Brussels sprouts and the squash. Goats milk cheesecake for dessert with coffee. Wonderful time.
Fine dining at its best. Very attentive staff. Great ambience. A very enjoyable experience.
Amazing location, food, service, atmosphere. Great experience and a magical setting.
Wanted to order caviar, out of caviar. Please put one steak on the menu.
This is best restaurant ever great service
We had a beautiful night with impeccable service and delicious food.
The atmosphere is outstanding, but we go down from there.
Excellent, attentive service in a beautiful outdoor setting.
We went for our anniversary and had a magical experience. We arrived early, ordered some wine and then walked around the grounds, climbing the hill to watch the fiery sunset. The grounds were covered with beautiful flowers and emitted intoxicating smells. There were lights in the trees and people strolling causally and enjoying the sights.
From there we went to dinner where we were escorted onto an enchanting patio with a view of the ocean. The service was amazing and our food was some of the best we have ever tasted. We had Brussel sprouts, a nice salad, halibut and filet mignon. We ended up with chocolate soufflé and the homemade mint ice cream. Both were so yummy.
We both agreed that the entire experience was one we will always remember.
We celebrated an anniversary...the staff were wonderful!
This is our second time to this restaurant, and both times have been fabulous! We would come back to Santa Barbara just for this experience :-)
