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.
Was very good
Don is the best!
It has been some time since we have had dinner in the restaurant, and lately have been in the bar with friends having cocktails and sharing plates. Traditionally, we have very good service and food. Unfortunately, this last Monday, we did not have a very good experience. We found the service to be a bit slower than what we're used to and the pizza we ordered was lukewarm and the crust was soggy. Additionally, a gentlemen next to us was drinking red wine, and his glass shattered sending shards of glass over to our seats and table, and red wine onto my daughters dress and my husbands pantsleg. While the staff worked to clean up around us, they didn't ask about our clothes or bring us new linen until we asked for it. Historically, we have had an excellent experience at Stoneburner, but Monday was just not their night. We will go back again for sure, but probably stick to happy hour in the bar.
The food and cocktails for brunch were outstanding!
This is one of my favorite spots for brunch. Great ambiance and price. My friends and I ordered a breakfast pizza, salad and the Dutch baby and split the items between us. It was more than enough food and incredible.
Great location, ambience, food and service. It’s one of our favorite places in Ballard. The tuna dip with sweet potato chips is fabulous!
Great service, great food, great environment. One of the best places in the city hands down. Definitely on our list of favorites!
Great group birthday dinner
Food as usual fantastic very good balance on the flavors excellent combination of ingredients,a pallet of flavor in the table every dish we ordered
We were there with a large group for a birthday and the whole experience was fantastic. Our server was extremely patient, attentive and kind. Food was great and we never felt rushed.
The pizza was great, thin crust, perfect texture, beautifully done. The pasta dishes were equally fine!
Great place to grab brunch and then walk around the area. Sunday has the farmer's market just down the road. The food was excellent, and we absolutely loved the Turkish Eggs.
We picked this on a spur of the moment, where should we go for our anniversary. We we're very pleased great food, impeccable service, and an all around great meal.
Celebrated my 35th birthday here with my husband and it was the perfect low key evening out. The windows were open and the temperature and ambiance of the whole place was very lively for a Wednesday night. My husband told our server, Rachel, that it was my birthday who immediately brought over some bubbles to celebrate. Our experience at Stoneburner is that the food consistently is high quality and decadent - this visit continued that trend. We had grilled ciabatta bread and ricotta cheese, gem lettuce salad, beautifully made tortellini, and a pepperoni pizza. Book now!
Bravo to Jonathan, the sommelier. He is knowledgable, friendly and helpful. His recommendations were excellent. We love your fresh halibut.
Last booth near the kitchen not the best seat in the house. My seat was vibrating each time the bar was using thei blender :(. Service was a bit slow this time too. Meal was tasty but too salty and portion on the conservative side. Had great experiences there before so I will definitely go back.
Greasy, expensive food. Service was so/so. I don’t recommend
Stoneburner offers creative dishes that stand out from normal fare offered by similar restaurants. The serving staff was timely and cheerful. My only complaint is that we had reservations and arrived 5 minutes early. We were told we would be seated shortly even though there were a few others waiting ahead of us. We waited patiently while the others were seated but then I noticed a couple of groups come in that didn’t have reservations (I was close enough to overhear the conversations) being told they could be seated right away. That prompted me to request the status of our table and was told we could be seated immediately. I caused me to wonder what would have happened had I not spoken up, it’s almost as if they forgot we were there even though we were standing next to the front desk. Anyway, it all ended well; we enjoyed our meal.
Brunch was fantastic!
All 5 of us enjoyed our dishes - we all ordered different things and nothing disappointed.
Eggs cooked to perfection! ♥️♥️♥️
Great service! Wonderful food! Beautiful open window seating! Would go back!❤️
Stoneburner is our favorite restaurant.
Stoneburner is my favorite restaurant in Seattle. Always great in all areas. But...
I got to the restaurant and they had cancelled my reservation for some reason. I also got an email from Open Table saying it was cancelled, which it was not. And nobody knew how it happened.
Great ambience, great food and excellent service - essential ingredients for an enjoyable dinner.
Been to Stoneburner many times. They have single handedly changed my view on vegetables. Always amazing. We recommend constantly.
I loved every aspect of my (first) dining experience here. The design / ambience of the place is something I’d want to come back to again, and for a pleasant change, not ridiculously loud like so many restaurants these days: we could actually converse with the friends at our table. Our server was AMAZING... super professional and accommodating, worked with me to address an allergy issue, always on hand when needed without hovering... even though our meal took quite a while to come out, she and the chef surprised us with appetizers on the house as a kind gesture. Vegetable side dish portions are super generous, the steak was a bit small for the price, but everything was delicious, and when taken overall it felt like a reasonable value. We will absolutely come back.
Halibut was very good. Tasty pepperoni pizza. Great service
We came in for Easter brunch and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The staff was friendly and attentive and the food interesting and delicious. Prices quite reasonable also. Will definitely go back.
Amazing food and service.
It is a lovely restaurant which offers family style meals which was exactly what I was looking for. Our server (Genevieve) was wonderful and was knowledgable of the menu and helped us decide what courses we wanted to order. The food was delicious! We started with a 3 choice cheese plate, and experimented with different combinations, and when the entrees were taken out we were blown away. Our favorite dish was the tortellini, the caramalized caulifolower was so creamy and rich! We also ordered the charred broccoli (superb) and the fragrant spice chicken (the meat just fell off the bone). We ended our outing with dessert, and when it came out it had a candle on it for my partners birthday!
5/5 would recommend to a friend!
Food and service were excellent, but i did not like the noise level!
Our server was excellent. We will definitely go back!
The food was delicious, the service was awesome, and I love the atmosphere at Stoveburner. We visited during restaurant week and got a great deal, too! We'll be back for sure!
Good food, cooked perfectly. Experienced friendly staff. Well run Resturant . We’ve lived in the Seattle area for over 20 years and Stoneburner ranks at the top. We’re curious to see if their new resturant, Seaplane, in Kenmore impresses is as much as Stoneburner.
My leek and asparagus pizza was to die for. The egg yolks on it were perfectly complemented the warmth of the toppings with its rich buttery yellow. The Gorgonzola was dreamy creamy. The service was great, too. I'd love to come back to Seattle only to eat here.
The only negative, and it’s a big one, is that it is so very noisy. We were unable to have a conversation at the table due to noise.
Everything was delicious, we got to enjoy restaurant week at a leisurely pace, and the flight of special drinks was great. Easy to schedule and enjoy
Food was not up to par. Portions were noticeably smaller than usual, as we frequented this place. Hoping that it was just an outlier. Service was also not as attentive as we've experienced in the past.
We loved everything about our meal at Stoneburner.
