Fodor's Review

The elegant Stonehouse is inside a century-old granite former farmhouse at the San Ysidro Ranch resort. Executive chef Matt Johnson creates outstanding regional cuisine centered around herbs and veggies from the on-site garden and top-quality local ingredients. The menu changes constantly but typically includes favorites such as pan-seared abalone and classic steak Diane flambéed tableside. Dine on the radiant-heated oceanview deck with stone fireplace, next to a fountain

under a canopy of loquat trees, or in the romantic, candlelit dining room overlooking a creek. The Plow & Angel pub, downstairs, serves casual bistro fare.
