This is the perfect destination for a romantic evening out and a delicious meal. Do not miss the opportunity to stroll through the gardens either before or after dinner and take a little time to enjoy the view of the ocean from up in the hills. On a warm summer evening, you cannot find a better place.

We used to stay at San Ysidro Ranch frequently but now us far too expensive. However the restaurant and Plow and Angel remain wonderful. Just can’t afford $1400 for a room.

Famous and ethereal location, good for special occastions and events. Gorgeous surrounding, fabulous landscaping, surrounded by very rich people, who frequent this spot. Fantastic service, they wait on you hand and foot. Food was good, but not special. Price is breathtaking and portions very modest. Still, worth a trip for something special.

With a caveat— don’t accept dining downstairs. I felt like a second class citizen.

We thought we would be seated inside but, when we arrived we were told it was the patio or nothing.
We should have been advised at the time of booking not at our scheduled arrival time. Poor management

If you are looking for a restaurant for THAT special occasion - this is the one. My wife was overwhelmed for her birthday by the location, service, atmosphere and just friendly people. The menu has a good variety and specialty dishes. The wine selection is second to none.

Such a beautiful location. The gardens are amazing, so much to see. We really enjoyed all the roses in bloom. It was fun to look at the chef’s herb garden too. My husband and I had lunch on the deck, so pleasing to all the senses. I had the grilled chicken and brie focaccia sandwich. Mike had the bass, so well prepared and presented. We shared the lemon tart. Our expectations were more than met. Wonderful flavors and textures. The service was excellent. Our waiter was very attentive. He was happy to answer our questions about the ranch and history of the area. I would definitely come back again. We are even thinking about staying at the ranch. A real jewel!

We arrived early and wandered around the beautiful San Ysidro Hotel grounds. We were seated and were immediately served water and amuse busch of olives and radishes. Our server, Adrian, treated us as if we were VIPs. The heirloom tomatoes in my salad were as sweet as cherries. Our lobster and rack-of-lamb dinners were perfect. A premiere cru Chablis from their cellar was grand. We will be back.

Very classy feel to the restaurant and surrounding buildings. They did a great job restoring the restaurant and inn which suffered major flood damage January 2018.
Food and service as good as before, especially the octopus appetizer and rack of lamb. The local halibut filet wasn’t as good as Alaskan halibut, and was a bit cold.

We went to Stonehouse to celebrate our 2 yr wedding anniversary. It was a beautiful location and we were seated at the garden patio. Service was impeccable. Food was great although portions weren't very big. My husband had the Steak Diane. It was pretty good and the flambeed sauce made it even better. I had the lobster with gnocchi. It was good but for the price I expected just a bit more. My favorite part was the dessert. They gave us an anniversary chocolate cake which was rich and delicious but we also ordered Marioberry Souffle and it was the most amazing dessert I've ever had in my life. I literally cried because it was so good. Overall, Stonehouse was an amazing experience. Definitely a for special occasion restaurant.

This is a very expensive restaurant. The night we visited I was under the impression we had a table inside, but when we arrived we were told we had a reservation on the patio. Still pretty, but not what I expected. That night they really packed the tables on the patio. The wait staff, and the guests had a hard time moving around. There are 2 menus, but unless you ask you will not see the less expensive menu. So there seems to be a bit of house knowledge needed before dinning there.
