An excellent menu with an amazing wine list! Relaxed dining combined with great service. You must try the diver scallops on a bed of corn & leek risotto. The baked Alaska was amazing!

We dined here for breakfast and dinner during our last stay at San Ysidro. Meals are prepared from the Chef's organic garden and it shows. Everything was incredibly delicious and fresh. The service was excellent, and the view was just spectacular!

We had lunch here. First of all, San Yasidro Ranch is so charming. Beautiful flowers, herbs, and gardens on the property. It was a beautiful day and we were seated on the patio. Fresh olive bread with olive oil was brought to the table immediately. My shrimp and asparagus salad was delicious. My friend ordered the burger with truffle fries... More

First time at this beautiful restaurant. We arrived in the evening so it was pretty dark and couldn't get the view that I'm sure the day allows for. However, all the little lights in the trees and the ambient glow of the ranch made up for that. Food was delicious. The plates were just right for portion size. Not to... More

We visited here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It is a very romantic facility, but in January exceptionally dark with very little lighting. It is located at the top of the hills looking over Santa Barbara, but the road up to the site is difficult when very dark out. Once you get to your table they give you little flashlights... More

Loved the ambiance. The service was impeccable. The food was so-so this second time back. (First time, it was great. So, it may be time to re-examine the chef.) So, its a ding there. But, would I come back? Yes! Because, I love the grounds and the buildings. But, next time, I may be back just for drinks downstairs in... More

The dining experience at Stonehouse was far beyond what I could have hoped it to be. The setting is beautiful, the atmosphere just right for fine dining, the service outstanding ( Eric is a true gentlemen and amazingly polite and accommodating ) and the food is fantastic. Very nice Californian wines by the glass and please try their blood orange... More
