Stone is a San Diego gem. Foodies will love the rich, flavorful, and delicious food. The romantics will enjoy the serenity of taking a twinkle light lit stroll by the waterfall through the gardens. I've also booked this place for corporate events. The service and food were impeccable for large groups.This is an awesome venue if your executives enjoy beer or if you are looking for a fun wedding spot! My only advice is to prepare your wallet to take a shot and know that the service gets worse as the night progresses and the restaurant gets packed to the brim with people. If you can, aim for a 5:30-6:00pm reservation. It's the quiet before the storm.

Outstanding atmosphere and really great tap list (from both Stone and guest beers). Highly recommended to grab a few beers here. I've never seen a place quite like this. The huge miss is the food and service. Really poor food. The menu leans toward fresh produce, thoughtful bistro fare. What you get is lazy, flavorless junk. If they want upscale food, they need people in the kitchen that can deliver or recipes that taste good. Whichever is th the problem. To top it off, 2 of our 4 dishes were not what we ordered and it took over 30 minutes to get the correct dishes. Big buzzkill for an otherwise special place.

We went as a large group (with a reservation) and were seated on time outside. It's a really good looking place, high ceilings and the outside koi pond looks like you're in a tiki place or something. The tours are great with energetic and knowledgeable people and at the end, you get to have a sampling session which most of the time, the beers are great. For food, the servers were fast and friendly, but the food was vastly overpriced for small portion sizes. Meals run from $13-$20 and tend to run on the small side. I got the vegetable pot pie and the bread was great, but the vegetable filling needed more spices, but kudos for using tempeh. Large beer selection even non-stone ones. Recommend for tour and beer drinking but not food.

I've been here numerous times. I have a couple of growlers at home. I like their Ruination IPA the best. I do like their pale ale as well. Pretty much everything on tap is really good. You won't go wrong with the beer here. The food and the service at the restaurant however, could use a bit of a wake up call. Overpriced, "I'm not sure what category this fits in food" , is what you'll get here. There's gastro pub food along with pseudo Chinese food on the same menu. I've had the mac and cheese here and that was the best item I've had. I've been here on another tour once with a SD beer tour. Basically Stone's is more business oriented than most of the other small craft beer places. That's why you see Stone's products on the shelves of many local retailers. You might see Alesmith and Ironfist at your local whole foods. But that's because other folks don't have the business sense of market penetration. So, come for the beer, do come for the tour, as you will get a free sampler at the end. Best to come at 11pm, grab a number for the 12pm tour. That is usually your best bet. Do get a growler. Because it is really fresh and I've not ever had a problem with it even having it for 2 weeks. Stone sells so many of their beers so quickly so everything is always fresh. Stone's has many events, do check out their calendar. From the last tour, I heard they are going to open a hotel across the street later this year. Keep up the good work, just work on your food a bit and you'll do really well.

Nice place and atmosphere, the waitress had a good command on the variety of beers and her recommendations were quite good, however the food was terrible ----- in their effort to appear like an artisan type restaurant their menu is quite limited and unappealing------ had the Bison Chop ( closest thing to steak on the menu)---- it appeared to be a slap of fat and gristle ---- revamp the menu and you might have something there

I have never been here before but my friend Davis won't shut up about it. He is a very nice guy, but kind of a food snob. So if he raves about this place it must be amazing.

So I can't contribute anything new to the reviews; just repeat: Stone is fantastic. With an industrial interior, charming beer garden & outdoor spaces, the brewery's atmosphere is sleek & convivial. And as a dark beer fan, I love the Smoked & Vanilla Bean Porter. I'm less of a fan of the food (and I've sampled most of the menu), but the almond-crusted tilapia is a consistently tasty standby.
