Beautiful and Delicious

The seating set up is difficult for a romantic dinner away. The food is good, but not incredible. If you make a reservation ask for a private booth, they have about 4 of them, everything else is loud and noisy

Stonehill Tavern is located inside one of the finest hotels in Southern California. I would not expect anything less than exceptional food and service - at The St. Regis Resort & Spa. Oh and don't get me started on the Spa Gaucin (best overall I've ever experienced, across the globe). I'll write another review for that particular luxury event. I... More

Amazing halibut and seafood! The chef heard it was my grandma's birthday and brought us some free salmon belly appetizer that melted in your mouth. And the chocolate cake with cocoa nibs ice cream is probably the best dessert I have ever had - and believe me I've had plenty. Shout out to Thomas our waiter, he is amazing and... More

We've eaten here 5 times. Every time the food has been excellent. But this is the second time that the service has been terrible. Our entrees arrived over two hours after we sat down at the table. The sommelier forgot about the second bottle of wine that we ordered. We had to ask the waitress to bring it. We waited... More

Wonderful staff; great ambiance. Ate here as often as we could and loved it each time. Calm, peaceful setting, great food and lovely service. What more can you ask for?

Me and my girlfriend just recently went here for our 6 year anniversary and had the time of our lives. We have been before and loved every second but this time was far exceeded our expectations. The entire staff remained extremely attentive during the entire meal from the rose pedals on our table to the complimentary small bites, everything was... More

The Sol is to die for and they have a very extensive wine list. It was an amazing experience. The only fall back is that its fine dining and there were a lot of kids there because no other places in the hotel were open.
