We had a great time at the stone hill. Of course we dropped a mortgage payment there. But the wine. Food and the view and great for us. If u go. Get an outside table. Take your time and enjoy. And charge it to the underhills!

being an international foodie, likely spoiled the good food from Hong Kong to NYC, from South france to the land of Dolce Vita- italy, our second michael mina experiences continue to be mediocre. our first time was at San francisco. the restaurant has a nice view, but that pretty much all I could say - the bill was towards pricy...

This is my third visit to Stonehill and I am always delighted by the experience. I highly recommend the tasting menu. It consists of 5 courses but along the way you will probably have 4 or 5 other things. The menu is inventive the flavors and pairings unique and the portions just right. Impeccable service. Bring your wallet, but you... More

We eat at the Stonehill Tavern every few months. Eating there last weekend, the food was excellent again, but given the summer rush, the service was disjointed. The wine list and the fresh menu is always good, but they should plan a bit better for the large number of diners.

My husband and I enjoyed a fabulous dinner at The Stonehill Tavern in the St Regis Hotel. We sat out on the patio overlooking the Monarch Beach golf course and Pacific Ocean. Our meal was so creative and delicious. Nothing I would have known how to prepare at home. I had the black cod in a miso broth and my... More

This is a very costly restaurant that does not deliver a quality dining experience. The two bites that constitute the hamachi appetiser were pleasant. The lamb was overcooked and the kitchen refused to acknowledge it and sent the plate back-now overcooked and cold. The salmon was so overcooked it had the texture of sawdust. The potatoes had the texture of... More

We had dinner at Stonehill after reading some good reviews. We were on time for our reservation and were seated right away. Booths were available but they sat us at a table in the midst of an endless stream of servers, runners, managers and bussers. There was almost always someone buzzing around us. However it still took about 20 minutes... More

We have eaten here several times and love it. When you enter there is the most beautiful modern glass wine display and it goes up from there. The views are breathtaking, but just as importantly the food, wine, service are excellent. Have had about half of the items on the menu and never disappointed. In the beautiful St Regis Resort,...

My wife and I spent the weekend at the St. Regis to celebrate Mother's Day. She deserves it! Stonehill Tavern was amazing. Great service and food. Didn't have a reservation but were able to seat us at 8:30 with only a 10 minute wait at the bar. Great atmosphere. Highly recommend the Lobster Pot Pie if it's on the menu.... More

We were pretty excited to try the Michael Mina restaurant at The St. Regis in Dana Point. We live close by and were looking to have an amazing night out. The food was excellent. Service was top notch also. Bar drinks were perfectly prepared. We brought wine and were charged $35 corkage which is on the high side but still... More
