We loved our experience at the Stonehouse. We loved the ambience and service was wonderful.
If there is heaven this is it! Perfect service, atmosphere and food!
The Stonehouse Inn never disappoints. Such a spectacular property with out-of-this-world dining experiences.
Perfect service and excellent food in historic setting.
A fabulous dinner!
While in Santa Barbara, we decided to head to the Stone House for a last dinner. Arriving a bit early for our reservation, we were directed to the Plow and Angel. This is a slightly less expensive eatery that has the feel of a cozy English pub. The fine bartender there served up an excellent Manhattan for us, while we waited for the Stone House to open. Our subsequent dinner at the Stone House was excellent (steak flambe to die for!) We dined on the outdoor patio, which was warmed by a heated floor and provided a romantic setting, with star-like scattering of overhead lighting and a beautiful sunset view.
Be warned, as others have noted, that all this comes at a pretty high price. But for a special occasion, it's well worth it.
One of the most beautiful properties in the world, one of the most beautiful restaurants with an outstanding menu and Chef. The staff always makes you feel at home and the wine list is one of the best in the world old.
The Stonehouse is beautiful. The food is creatively prepared and service is excellent. Our only complaint is there are no vegan options.
Our waiter was not attentive at all. My drink arrived 15 minutes after my husbands. Service was just off. Very disappointed as I have eaten here in the past and my experience was outstanding. Not the wow factor we expect for the amount of money we spend.
Every bite at once unique but familiar and always delicious. The care and attention shown by the knowledgeable staff is exceptional.
Wonderful meal in a great location. That being said, it was a very expensive meal that was not as memorable as some other meals I have had in other nice restaurants. At some point a meal should not be about how exclusive it is based upon the price, but really about the quality of the chef's work. I think we have gotten a little ridiculous about trying to charge the highest prices to make it seem like a better place.
Highly recommended place to have dinner, I would say that the food is way better than Addison in the Grand Del Mar in San Diego. Perfect place to take a date...I forgot to mentioned that they have great wine list
Other thing, we ordered sparkling water and the water boy didn’t evenly distributed he kept pouring water to my boyfriends glass and he forgotten about me.
We were there the day before thanksgiving. Staff was amazing on all levels. Made real effort(s) to make us feel welcomed and special. The food was good, not great. Steak Diane which I thought was to be cooked at the table was not- just the accompanying mushrooms sauce.... the oysters were great and the soufflé for dessert was a B+. The bread tray has a terrific crisp bread!
Wonderful evening. Food, service, and ambience was great!
Really wonderful. We don't go to Santa Barbara often but when we do we come to this restaurant. As always it did not disappoint. The service was amazing and the food perfect. I love that there are people in dinner jackets and cocktail dresses and some in sweaters and jeans. The service is fun and understated. The food is perfectly cooked and presented.
This was a very special place for me and my partner. We will always come back here when we are in town
Travelled to Santa Barbara for 5 days of California cuisine and wine. This was a highly anticipated dinner and, sadly, the most disappointing of our 5 dinners.
Arrived at 5:56 for a 6:00 reservation. Doors locked. Staff opened the door only to tell us and the other 2 couples that "We don't open until 6pm." Odd. Went to the bar downstairs and had excellent cocktails prepared and served by a friendly staff.
Knowledgeable sommelier who recommended a delicious Ojai Vineyards pinot. Pricey ($180) but worth it. Essentially uninspired food served by a disinterested staff. Disappointing.
Everything about the Stonehouse is outstanding. It's hard to imagine what could be improved upon. We went for our anniversary. The service is impeccable. The food indescribably good. The desserts are beyond compare. A very expensive restaurant but there is no equal!
Cheerful experience. Advice to come there for the weekend dining. Enjoy !
Great local and service. Perfect for quiet intimate dining.
Honeymoon! Was here a year ago to the day for the post-engagement dinner and it is absolutely breathtaking. Will be back again God willing
