Was wonderful. Very friendly and the food was excellent.
Perfect romantic flawless
The tortilla soup is certainly nothing special - too much tomato in the soup base and served lukewarm. The ambience is nice in the outside area in front of Plough & Angel, should you be seated there. Except for some noisy yard work being done, it was quiet.
It was amazing Christian/ Chris our server was fantastic!!! The ambiance is one of tranquility in the outdoor garden area! The food was excellent! The customer service is phenomenal! It is pricey but worth every dollar . You must try the Stonehouse at least once ! We will definitely return !
Fantastic place for lunch or dinner!! The property is Amazing!!
The food and presentation were exceptional. The service was impeccable and the ambience was wonderful. Everything was done in a timely manner and the tasks were performed expertly and professionally. Easily the best restaurant in the Santa Barbara area.
Was looking for a special lunch experience in SanBarbara/ Montecito area - and found it at Stonehouse!
Driving slowly to San Ysidro Ranch, the turnoff is an inviting (olive)tree lined approach to the properties. Prepare to stop at a booth as you get close. You’ll be directed to the restaurant and parking valet area.
The restaurant has an amazing feel as we walked through to our outside upper level covered patio.table..there is also a patio below with umbrellas....
Wait staff are just excellent in all descriptions ...attentive but not untimely with any needs...
We enjoyed an organic chicken salad and the halibut tacos....a cocktail from a full bar and a nice glass of wine..In short - food is delicious- visually pleasing....We can not wait to enjoy dinner.
We had such a delightful time and the atmosphere was perfect for our anniversary lunch. Our server, Christian, was excellent. Food was done perfectly and delicious. They even surprised us with a lemon tart for dessert for our anniversary. Highly recommend!
outstanding in all respects! great for a special occasion!
A perennial favorite of our family, The Stonehouse at San Ysidro Ranch never disappoints. The setting is the most beautiful and perfectly placed property in the Santa Barbara area. The original ranch buildings and purpose are elegantly integrated into the total experience. An abundance of of natural features such as water fountains, fragrant plantings and magnificent hummingbirds and butterflies are woven into the facility. The staff is classically trained, attentive but not hovering. Offerings on the menu are unique and prepared at the topmost quality - there are no mistakes or near-misses. The Stonehouse is probably the ultimate dining experience on the West Coast.
A world-class and historic destination. A lovely meal followed by a stroll around the beautiful gardens.
The most beautiful place to have either a great lunch or dinner with a view of the ocean or gardens. The grounds are fabulous. Our food was excellent as well as the service. Loved that they were not overwhelming at your table all the time. Enjoyed a wonderful lunch with my friend talking and laughing. Thank you Stonehouse. We will return next year!
Attentive service, beautiful environment, great food
Not been there since pandemic started. Glad to see the restoration of the dining area was done in such a way to honor the tradition of one of our favorites places to eat. Seating was done to spread customers over the lunch period. As always, outstanding service from the beginning to the end. There was a little back up in the kitchen and they served a cup of their delicious tortilla soup as an apology for the wait which wasn't that long. Thanks again for another lovely experience. We live in Ventura and over the years we have never been disappointed. Thank you.
Exceptional staff. Greeting, wine selection and service were all very accommodating, friendly, knowledgeable and professional. The Stonehouse was absolutely beautiful. The whole experience really made our anniversary special
A perfect lunch. I’ll leave it at that.
Simply amazing, highly recommend.
You have to try the Grand Marinier soufflé; absolutely delicious.
Speechless - no words!!! The best dining experience of all time.
Attentive service; friendly and helpful; excellent food quality.
Wish you'd bring back the 3 course meal choices, however. Really miss that.
Once in a lifetime experience! My husband and I had dinner at Stonehouse and it was lovely! Staff was very friendly, helpful and attentive. Our portions were so large. I make a special point of this because typically higher end restaurants serve small portions. Stonehouse is the exception! Romantic setting. We will be back.
Stunning property, excellent food, highly recommend for those looking for a five-star experience!
Amazing ambiance and garden setting. Very good service. Upscale but not snubby or pretentious. The salads were very fresh using quality veggies. My burger dish was ok, it was overdone.
Visiting Montecito, we enjoyed a quiet lunch in this lovely restaurant to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Food, service and ambiance were wonderful. Thanks for the recommendation, Kevin Costner!
Food and service were both great. We got one of the best tables with a view of the ocean. Being able to walk around the grounds, like the rose garden, was a bonus.
Beautiful in every way
One of the most beautiful places on earth. The food is ridiculously good, and don't sleep on their rosemary bread! Gives bread in Paris and Italy a run for its money! Also an incomparable wine list. Peach belini on a hot day is bonkers as well.
Beautiful setting for any special occasion.
The Stonehouse is one of the most beautiful restaurants in Santa Barbara. The food is delicious and the service is always impeccable. A wonderful place to enjoy a birthday or anniversary or just to have a romantic date with your spouse.
Limited menu offerings were disappointing. Generic dishes were ok. Nothing special.
Server forgot about us repeatedly.
Birthday celebration ignored…even though it was included in the reservation a week in advance.
No suggested desserts or invitation to try anything.
Beautiful environment is the draw. Not the food.
Very special place! Cocktails delicious. We enjoyed strolling the garden with our drinks before our reservation. Fabulous food. Loved the tortilla soup.
Delicious! Incredible view and impeccable service.
This is a gorgeous place to have dinner. That said, the prices are outrageous and the food good, but not great. I mean the prices OUTRAGEOUS!
Unbelievable location. Beautiful, delectable food. The octopus and scallops for a start were perfect. Duck was delicious. Ribs were yummy! Also get the mint ice cream; they make it there! Service is outstanding! (Sam- thank you!) Perfect for a special celebration! Can’t wait to come back!
28th Wedding Anniversary.
We had a a special time on Stonehouse restaurant . We were celebrating my daughter graduation. And the service was incredible, the Wine and the Champagne were wonderful and the food beautiful and delicious .
And for desert all the kindness reminding us how special is the moment ... they write with chocolate Congratulation❤️. Stonehouse is a restaurant everybody must go!
The smell of gardenia, jasmine and rosemary floated in the air enveloping time as we celebrated a birthday amongst a lively crowd. Steak Diane, Bananas Foster along with Cherries Jubilee made table side. Imagine those fragrances... you should be wishing you were here!!!
Superb service and delightful food. Toured magnificent gardens after lunch - hard to beat!
Lovely setting outside but we sat near entrance and table was very dark. Waiter had to use flashlight to illuminate what he was serving. Good service. Food was good but not outstanding.
