Beautiful setting. Rest was way below average or down right horrible. We were seated. I told server we had never been there and had some questions. She placed menu on table and left without any help. U must order via your cell phone on line. Not intuitive. Not user friendly. What we wanted to order could only be thru take out. Had to order something else. Ordered and waited. And waited. Drinks came and I tried to ask a question but our second server did not acknowledge us. Dropped drinks on table and left. We managed to order dinner. Again, we waited. And waited. Dinner finally arrived cold. Our third server left before we could check our meals.
No one checked on us and I literally had to wave my arms to get someone to heat my mom's entre. Them to top it all off, I was forced to pay 18%tip to clear on line tab. Avoid this cafeteria masquerading as a high end diner. I will not return. Beer was average.
Other restraints use on table tablets to order and pay. Easy to use and u decide tip. This scheme requires u to use your phone and Wi-Fi to navigate national website and one size fits all software that is difficult to use. Then, no single server to consult and help is unsatisfactory. I felt like I was in a cafeteria with teens running around just slamming items on table as fast as possible.
The food and ambience were amazing as usual. Unfortunately because of social distancing we didn’t really have a server at all. We were told to order everything online. And it was delivered to our table. Which was fine. Except for nobody greeted us. Nobody was available to give us extra napkins etc. And no one cleared dirty dishes off of our table. That was very disappointing.
Stone used to be one of our favorite places to eat but we don't care for the new ordering process via QR code at the table. Part of why we eat out is to be waited on and to have that relationship with the server for recommendations and to help create a wonderful experience. Ordering on the phone is time consuming and a definite detraction from the experience at least for the initial drink and food order. Also, no one came to bus our table. Our glasses and food dishes all remained on the table until we left. I'm hoping this is only a temporary situation due to Covid and things will return to the amazing experience we came to love at Stone once things can go back to normal. I will still recommend Stone but just be aware that you will have to place your own order so check out the menu before you go.
First time to check it out and will definitely be back. Came for the beer and pleasantly surprised by food and ambiance.
Everything was as expected or better! We wanted to feel comfortable without people too close, so we were very pleased. Ordering from the phone kept staff and us safer, as they only came to drop off anything we needed. Food was as good as usual. My only criticism is that my beers could have been colder. Great to dine if you're content with/immersed with your dining partners, so ambiance was perfectly private and reflective of our times, as it ought to be.
Will be back. Excellent food, friendly service. Great time
Ambiance was amazing.
Service was perfect.
Beers were ice cold.
Food was delicious.
Best. 22 year anniversary date. Ever.
It's not the same experience as it used to be. The menu is very limited.
No one came to clear out our table. All dishes and glasses stayed on table until we left. Actually that is the reason we decided not to continue ordering and close our tab. As soon as we closed our tab we had our dishes picked up.
Stone has gone way down hill.
Long story short - not worth the money - Try something else.
Covid aside the service was sluggish, we were on time and were seated 15 minutes late. Taken to a picnic table. Really? Six top ready to spend $300 and we get a dark picnic table? The app thing is awkward but we gave it a shot. First round of drinks came out ok.
But let's talk about the food.
Guys it's 2020. Want legit Brussels sprouts? Go to LTH in oceanside and learn how to make them right. Fish tacos? Go to The Brigantine in Del Mar and eat a proper fish taco. Not a fish stick. If you can't make great food don't make food at all.
You have a beat up garden with a swampy pond and mediocre food. The beer is great. But it's not worth the price of admission. Wish we could have that 3 hours back.
Sunset into early night gave the best back drop. Patio lights on koi pond in view and great food and Stone beer, nothing more to ask for but to enjoy the moment and each other. My Wife and and weren’t talking to each other over a serious argument. But I kept our reservation for that Saturday night hoping we can still be adults and make It through a dinner. Guess what we did and started to talk again. Thank you Stone. We will be back
We come there at least once a week. Most times the servers run the beer and food to the table and never check back.
Most times our food has been cold.
We are regular customers. I hope things improve soon. I think the servers feel that their gratuity is automatically added so no need to actual provide service but to merely be food runners. Disappointing.
Loved, loved, loved it! Would love to go back soon
Great place to sit outisde and enjoy great food and beer. Really cool ambiance with lots of shade and comfortable seating. It's nice to be able to sit outisde and enjoy a dining experience in spite of COVID. However, I was disapointed in the service. Customers have to pay for food and tip up front now, and the bill automatically defaults to 20% tip, excessive considering you never see a server and for us, our table was partially cleared at the end -nobody came back to complete the job.
Very cool place to eat and have a beer. Menu is a little paired down most likely due to Covid-19, but what we ordered was really good. The no contact ordering is nice and convenient. The new way to order did not effect the delivery times and the Servers are all still very friendly.
I love this place. Anytime I'm in the area I stop by. Right now, reservations only. I was late and they were able to accommodate me. They are awsome. Food is always on point and I've been a fan of their beers for a long time. Outstanding.
Incredible first time experience! We loved the ambience, we loved the food, and we of course enjoyed the beer tastings! We tried the au jus dip sandwich and tacos and the food is not just there to be there- but truly a paired star!
Don't like the order on the phone stuff. We loose the questions of what is good what do you think about this food? Is this popular?
Ambience with affordable delicious cuisines surrounded by nature.
A wonderful place to enjoy dining especially during this pandemic- I always forget about the worlds sorrows and feel very relaxed and safe.
The management really provides hospitality.
We had a great time! I have been here before, and this time the food was even better than ever. The outdoor seating was great, and the service was amazing.
Amazing seating accommodations. Lovely gift shop. The menu was very diverse and the beer was fantastic.
The ambience alone is enough to keep us coming back. Beer menu is extensive. Food menu is somewhat limited but tasty.
Overall, great dae night place and atmosphere, but I dislike ordering on the phone!
Protocols were in place for touch less service and they definitely delivered on that. ... but with that in mind should have tried a bit harder to serve the guests with explanation.. etc. we were an older group and the lack of explanation and service were challenging.
very well organized. i loved the QR concept and the fact that there is minimal contact with staff
Food and service were great! When we arrived we were told it would be a couple minutes and we were welcome to look through the gift shop. When we went back out to the hostess-she said some one had said they were us and took our table🤨 it took a few minutes and they took us to a table way in the back-just wonder if the people that were seated for our reservation were up where the lighting and atmosphere is better-bummer because we really like your place!
Perfect place to escape and make you feel like you are someplace else. Their secret garden is great for having a few beers and some yummy food too.
Great atmosphere. Food was just average. Beer is the best.
Highly recommend booking in advance. Our experience was on a Monday so there was no wait - but if you plan on coming here on a weekend, definitely place reservations.
Pre-Covid this restaurant was amazing, post COVID-19 it’s not as great of service.
Stone Gardens are always a treat and we come down from Laguna as often as we can, especially when the weather (Heat) is reasonable.
Ordering from the phone was not smooth but rather clunky. It would have been so much better to have had a real person wait upon us. We had talked the place up (Stone is one of our favorite places) but the experience was really deflating considering how impersonal it was.
Beautiful ambiance but food was average. Service was lacking because of covid precautions. All ordering was contactless and no waiter which worked well but lacked personal interaction and being able to ask questions to a waiter.
I loved it here and so did my man we had so much food and it was all delicious my favorite was the Mac and cheese and the service was so fast we would order from our phone and it was amazing
Such a great ambiance! We reserved on OpenTable, makes it so easy. The ordering is easy with the table app, food is delicious, always new dishes to try. My family loves to come here together, it a wonderful place to gather, catch up and enjoy the beer garden and the reliable menu. It's become a usual on our list of destinations.
Excellent food, the ambiance was awesome. Both a negative and a positive there was no waiter. You have to scan your table enters some information and then you may order. It was a great family night out, but also great night for with friends or a date night. And if you've never experienced Stone brewery at night, you have to go.
Had a wonderful time, was kind of cold outside and the staff right away had a heating lamp for me, very organized, great food, beer!!!
Lucked out and got a last minute reservation for two. We sat in the garden by the pond. Very serene. Easy scan and order from our table. Prompt, friendly service. Tables spaced way apart.
We made a reservation ahead of time. When we got there, they were able to seat us within 5 mins of our reservation time. It was a beautiful day. We sat outside in the garden. The service was fast and friendly and the food is always delicious.
Great service and unique atmosphere. The food and beer was exceptional.
