Phenomenal food. Truly a gem in OC

Took my gf here from out of town, she absolutely loved it. Top top notch food, fresh and unique drinks, very professional yet easy to talk to staff. Every dish was articulately explained and wonderfully prepared. Literally no complaints- slam dunk date.

I have never had a better margarita than the one here!! Absolutely incredible. The food was to die for! Every thing we tried was better than the next. Without a doubt the best restaurant in California hands down!! The avacato burrata cheese balls were like nothing I've ever tasted!! And to top it off it came with edible gold on... More

Stayed at St. Regis for business function. Evening before leaving went to Irvine to best Sushi restaurant I know of in SoCal, Taiko. Returned to hotel seeking desert and stumbled in Stonehill Tavern. Build out is beautiful and inviting. Can't believe I missed it during rest of stay. Bartenders Stephen and Ryan found us dessert and gave us the most... More

I can't say enough good things about the experience here. Fantastic cocktails, huge wine list, great atmosphere, stunning view, incredible food, friendly and attentive staff. Tried a whole range of things from the menu, and the sommelier did a fantastic job of selecting wine pairings for each course. I could not recommend this place more. I will absolutely be making...

I love coming here when I can with friends and family. The last time I went we sat on the patio and enjoyed a world class sunset over the ocean with our amazing food. The staff is always professional and courteous. The chef's tasting menu is an onslaught of delectable delights with my favorites being the Wagyu and of course... More

To say this is a excellent dining experience just wouldn't be doing the staff at the Stone hill Tavern justice. From the moment we walked in I felt like I had been here many times. Everyone was so welcoming and truly friendly, they went above and beyond to make our meal the best possible meal we have ever had. We... More

We eat here every time we are in the area and it never disappoints! We love to have the chef prepare a tasting menu for us where we are surprised and delighted!

I live locally and am a complete foodie, making me even more of a critic. I love coming here not only for the food and cocktails, but for the staff and service as well. Steve and Ryan are amazing mixologists and far supersede all local bartenders. The staff are friendly, professional and a pleasure to see every time I come... More
