What Insiders Are Saying
Stoneburner is an Italian-American spot in Ballard with good neapolitan pizza and decent everything else, though the pastas are a crap shoot.
Amazing vegetables and seafoods!
Great food and lively atmosphere!
We went there for Sunday brunch, they have a great selection of items on the menu some of them with a unique twist on a familiar dish. I had the biscuits and gravy, the gravy was thick and so flavorful on top of the drop biscuits which were fantastic. We are already planning a return trip for dinner to enjoys those items and taste their extensive wine selection.
Our server, Kate, took excellent care of us, even though it was a very busy Saturday night. We mentioned we were vegetarian and she worked with the chef to ensure the dishes were suitable. Everything was amazing—and the veggies were treated as superstars! Definitely try the charred broccoli. The Dutch fries were wonderfully crunchy on the outside, creamy soft on the inside. The house-made pasta was perfect as was the dessert (dulce de Leche budino.) we’ll be back for sure!
Awesome brunch as always
It was amazing the waitress help us so much on our menu and made it the best time !!:)
The food was good and ambience/service even better, but the serving proportions were small yet pricy.
Our server was amazing!
Overall, we enjoyed our Valentine’s Day experience. The restaurant was chilly. My wife wore her coat during dinner. Our food was delicious, especially the meatballs my wife ordered. My pasta dinner was very rich (with lamb) but was a small portion. The service was excellent. I would go back during a warmer time of year.
Stoneburner is one of our favorite restaurants. We were entertaining a relative from Minneapolis and a colleague of hers from Sweden. There was one vegetarian and they had no trouble finding items to eat. Since it was at the tail end of the big snow, the restaurant was not as loud as normal (not very busy). We were also seated at a table at one end. I would have to say it was chilly in the restaurant. We didn't complain so I can't comment whether or not they could have adjusted the temperature.
Overall, a great restaurant and always, first rate service.
My friends and I had a wonderful experience at Stoneburner. It was some of ours’ first time in Seattle and this spot will be remembered. Service was prompt and each dish was fabulous. The atmosphere is wonderful and their large tables make it perfect for a friends dinner. We will return next time we are in town. Thank you!
The food was very good. It did take a long time to be served, maybe due to snow conditions? I’m not sure if they had a full staff or they were really busy.
Quaint. Food interesting and tasty. Good wine list.
We had the best server ever and the food is delicious! Great cocktails as well.
Our server was excellent. She took very good care of us.
Food wasn't anything special. pricing was reasonable. Date night with 3 total drinks, 2 appetizers, 1 shared vegetable, 1 shared entree came up to $100 +tip.
Restaurant was cold. location is great, service was great.
Really enjoyed the blackened salmon. Black crust over salmon that was medium rare in the center. Luscious. Caesar salad was large enough for 2-3, so don't order one as a side salad for one person. Get some help. Bar work needs some help. Ordered Tanqueray up with a couple olives. In most restaurants they call this a Martini with three ounces of gin. It came neat in an Old Fashioned glass and appeared to be an ounce of gin and was not even cold. Friends ordered Jack Daniels on the rocks and received a very measley size drink. Appeared to be 1 ounce rather than the typical 1 1/2 ounces normally served in most restaurants. Today's Martini should contain no vermouth and be shaken until the shaker is too cold to hold on to, about 30 seconds. Then rested for about 45 seconds to allow a very thin sheet of ice to form over the top of the gin. Then strained into a freezer chilled glass with 2-3 green queen olives. These drinks appeared to be made for Millenials, not someone like Humphrey Bogart as they should have been. Luscious food though.
I would have liked our waitress to explain the menu to us. Even with prompting her there was no explanation.
We celebrated my husband's birthday at Stoneburner this weekend because it's consistently a great dining experience. As usual, the season dishes were exceptionally tasty. Our waiter - Justin - was made great recommendations and was very attentive. We really like that they seem to empower their staff to do everything they can to make it a memorable experience for their clients and they do it well!
Our host and hostess were friendly. We loved the booth we were seated at and Jocelyn was an excellent waitress. The Oyster King mushrooms were our favorite! Thanks for a great evening.
The appetizers were good, as was the service. Charming place. My complaint is with the pizza we ordered. A tough dish to mess up, but ours was greasy and just plain ol' didn't taste very good. My son had the pork chops, and they were on the dry side. So, maybe an off night for the kitchen? No big deal, but I don't think we'll go back.
Chicken was only fair and overpriced. I would not go back.
Our service was a bit slow and it was disappointing that they had run out of their specials as we had several fish eaters in our party.
Changed the menu, we love this resturant, however the new pasta dishes are not even close to as good as the previous menu
Stoneburner never disappoints. Menu is inventive and they deliver great tasting dishes. Pizza is outstanding, of course, but the other selections are excellent as well. I love that they take reservations.
We had reservations at Stoneburner, our table was ready and in a nice location in the restaurant. Our wait person explained the dishes and how people typically order. One dish was not what my partner expected so the kitchen refired the item and it met his expectations. The service was very friendly and professional even though my partner was cranky.
It's my favorite place for brunch. The food is great and the service staff is competent and courteous.
Overall too loud. Food was fine. Service was fine. If you have a group and looking to have fun this would be a great spot. If you’re looking for a date spot or just a 1:1 dinner, would not recommend - you’ll be screaming at each other.
SB has become my family's special occasion restaurant, and the place I always take out of town guests.
The servers are delightful, attentive but not hovering. The food is excellent and well-prepared. I like that it is locally-sourced. I never go there planning to go "elsewhere" after or before as the dining here IS the experience, no need to hurry through it to another venue. Thanks again for a lovely evening.
Great, olives with mozzarella inside were a big hit! Interesting food, very nice overall
Service was a bit slow but the food was good. The waitress was really nice and accommodating.
Stoneburner was amazing! We had the burrata and the pizzas, they we all awesome!! I can’t wait to go back.
We took my Dad and his wife to celebrate his birthday. It was a Sunday evening so it was slow and quiet. The staff was super accommodating, the food was great and the atmosphere was perfect.
A fun environment, with very good service and good food! The sommelier is excellent! It's one of our favourites.
Stoneburner never disappoints. Service was outstanding. The food was delicious. We will be back!
The food was delicious! We are vegetarian and gluten free, but there were many fantastic options for us to order. Every dish was so tasty. My only complaint was how fast it all came out! It would have been nice to linger over our meal instead of getting bombarded with 6 plates all at once. Next time I’ll know to request this.
Very nice indeed. Only minor complaint is it was cold and bit drafty where we were sitting (near the kitchen entrance).
Stoneburner is one of my favorites in Seattle. Always great food and service! The menu is constantly changing with the seasons and their moods-great dishes! I can count on a great experience every time.
We had a lovely brunch at Stoneburner. Alfred took great care of us and offered perfect suggestions. Every dish we had great flavor we had Heuvos Tomate, Biscuits and gravy as well as the Big Toast. All in all we would go back again. The decor is great as well and watching the chef at the stone fire was fun.
Wonderful and delicious shared meal to celebrate a friend’s 50th. Don, our waiter, was phenomenal. We could not have asked for a better experience.
