Our breakfast and lunch was provided by our sponsor and both were amazingly well prepared. Kudos to the chef and staff!

Our dining experience last night was amazing! Chef Raj prepared the most incredibly delicious entrees and our server Thomas was beyond delightful. The vibe is classy and cool! We are locals and can't believe we don't come here more often. This is my new favorite south OC restaurant and I can't wait to come back!

A welcome surprise in this otherwise generic St. Regis property. Stunning flavors and presentation. I didn't go for the Mina signature lobster pot pie, and I'm glad I didn't; the daily special fish preparation was superb. The waiter was helpful and friendly. I'd go back if I was in the area!

I've loved this restaurant since they first opened years ago, from Aqua to this restaurant today. My favorite area of the restaurant is NOT in front of their glass wall with gorgeous views, but in the bar at one of their four booths. It's intimate, dark, and chic. Cocktails are always delicious and their food is scrumptious!

We got a ride to the St. Regis from the Ritz, and we were very happy we did. The decor is great. The views were not those of the Ritz, but they were OK. Service was very professional and formal. Service was a little slow, but there were high maintenance tables near us. The food was awesome. Highly recommend the... More

I recently ate at Stonehill and it was worth every penny. The food was delicious! I went with my parents who had a great time simply looking at the impeccable wine list. We had the ahi tuna tartare appetizer and it was so yummy. Our server also brought out some bread with cheese and honey which was great as well.... More

My husband and I took our mothers and siblings (7 of us in total) to dinner at Stonehill two Friday nights ago. We had requested the private dining room if available and not otherwise booked, and they graciously were able to offer that to us free of charge. (Normally it requires a minimum bill of $2500.) Food was as good... More

We had dinner at the Stonehill . I had the pork chop which was overcooked . I should have known this when I had trouble putting my fork into it. WE were celebrating a birthday so I did not want to make a fuss. Anyway, the service was so bad I was afraid I would never get my food back.... More

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!
