First time at this beautiful restaurant. We arrived in the evening so it was pretty dark and couldn't get the view that I'm sure the day allows for. However, all the little lights in the trees and the ambient glow of the ranch made up for that. Food was delicious. The plates were just right for portion size. Not to... More

We visited here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It is a very romantic facility, but in January exceptionally dark with very little lighting. It is located at the top of the hills looking over Santa Barbara, but the road up to the site is difficult when very dark out. Once you get to your table they give you little flashlights... More

Loved the ambiance. The service was impeccable. The food was so-so this second time back. (First time, it was great. So, it may be time to re-examine the chef.) So, its a ding there. But, would I come back? Yes! Because, I love the grounds and the buildings. But, next time, I may be back just for drinks downstairs in... More

The dining experience at Stonehouse was far beyond what I could have hoped it to be. The setting is beautiful, the atmosphere just right for fine dining, the service outstanding ( Eric is a true gentlemen and amazingly polite and accommodating ) and the food is fantastic. Very nice Californian wines by the glass and please try their blood orange... More

No wonder we found the dining room at the lovely San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara practically empty for lunch yesterday 12/8/16…our order of two tap waters, 2 tortilla soups (the consistency of wallpaper paste), two burgers (ordinary, they are better at The Habit), one cappucino and a split lemon tart (excellent) came in at $165.24, without the tip! Part... More

What an incredible place! San Ysidro Ranch has beautiful grounds which overlook the harbor, perfect for filling your camera’s SD card with fantastic images. With rose gardens, flowering climbers surrounding the buildings’ doorways, sunset opportunities, even catching a glimpse of a bridal party, the Ranch is the perfect place for a very special occasion. The lighted ceiling of the outdoor... More
