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.
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.
One word. Magical ! The setting is absolutely gorgeous and the highlight of our weekend getaway to Santa Barbara. Good, service, and ambiance were all amazing. A must go !
Absolutely beautiful grounds, great service, delicious food. We'll definitely be back!
Absolutely beautiful setting! Great menu. Loved the guitar playing!
Absolutely a fabulous restaurant !!
We are so happy they have reopened and just as good as ever. Beautiful setting and the staff is spot on. Not to mention their food is spectacular but some may find it a bit pricey.
We went there for our 25th wedding anniversary.
Beautiful ambiance, delicious vegan meals and excellent service. A lovely birthday celebration! It was a first time visit for our adult children and they loved it!
We went for my 60th Birthday...the approach is simply gorgeous, with the buildings being at the end of a long sweeping driveway.
We were seated outside under the beautifully lit trees on the outside patio.
Our server was so attentive, helpful and courteous, and made some excellent suggestions from the menu.
The whole experience was unforgettable and the memories will live with us forever.
Well done San Ysidro Ranch.
San Ysidro Ranch is such a beautiful location and the food at Stonehouse was incredible, as always. The oyster starter was surprising and delicious, as was the Mac and cheese. The chicken with gnocchi and truffle was one of the best chicken dishes I’ve ever had. The real star was dessert though. The lemon tart with lavender chantilly and my combination of the cardamom gelato was happy tear inducing.
Overall, this is a solid spot for a night of good food and refined enjoyment. Great staff.
Such amazing service and food and ambience!!! Beautiful to walk around property before and after dinner. Thoughtful consideration regarding Covid precautions, everyone was careful about distance and wore masks. Our favorite restaurant for our anniversary every year!!!
Guitar player made our first trip out to dinner in a year special and comfy!
Planned my Birthday trip & was so Happy to get reservation confirmed. I asked for a outside patio with a view, they gave me a table with view to there service station & next to the door. Asked for a better table & was told that this was our reserved table. The food was just fair, no wow factor 😔 The wow factor was only from the $200 bill. The Ranch itself was amazing😀
Our server was great she did everything to make our dinner great enjoyed it.
What a wonderful surprise from the moment we approached the valet, walked towards the restaurant and met the host/hostess. As we walked to our table, staff greeted us. The restaurant and outdoor seating was beautiful especially as the night began to fall. The food, drinks and service was excellent! Can’t wait to come back! Ps this elegant restaurant may make the best bbq ribs I’ve ever had!
It couldn’t have been a lovelier meal and with such excellent personal service. I kept thinking how gorgeous the classical/Spanish guitar background music was, that I assumed was a recording. But no, a solo guitarist was positioned just below the restaurant to serenade us. Perfection.
The food was salty and nothing impressive. The desert was not tasty: ordered a soufflé
The setting is absolutely gorgeous and the food was very good. Our server was kind and attentive and overall a first class service.
Stonehouse is a expensive, gorgeous place. I have been there many times over the years, but have always been struck with the tremendous prices. While I am willing to pay for an outstanding meal in a beautiful spot, the food at The Stonehouse is not outstanding. I would recommend it to friends, but with the caveat that it's all about the setting, and you don't get what you pay for in the food department, which is a shame, and should be the easiest thing to fix.
Everything was perfect!
My wife and I had a wonderful dinner this past Wednesday for our 25th Wedding Anniversary we had the best service and wonderful food food. We will definitely go back after Covid 19 is gone.
We arrived 10 minutes early and our table was ready but we wanted to look around the property. The host encouraged us to order a drink and then take our time to explore the garden. Our table was private and quiet. Our food was incredible (best oysters with passion fruit) and the service was so professional, courteous and welcoming. Best service we have experienced in a while. 5 stars. We’ll be back!
We had a lovely experience at Stonehouse. The lobster bisque was incredible and so was the crisp. The pork belly was just ok. I wish the bread in the bread basket came out warm. The sliders were just ok and the Mac n cheese was really good! Service was a bit slow but the ambience made up for it.
Absolutely wonderful in every single way. Most beautiful ambience in Santa Barbara. The food was delicious, the service outstanding. Fire going. Magical!
Always outstanding food, service and ambiance here. The prices are extremely high, but worth it for all the other exceptional features.
Beautiful setting, amazing food, wonderful service, very romantic and happy anniversary celebration for us!
Had the best starter ever.
Maple Brined Pork Belly:
Johnny Cake (thin pancake), Collard Greens, Maple Glazed Nectarines (super thinly sliced) and Pickled Mustard Seeds (very tasty and beautiful)
