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 on top-quality local ingredients complemented by herbs and vegetables from the on-site garden. The menu changes constantly, but might include pan-seared abalone or classic steak Diane flambéed tableside. Dine on the radiant-heated oceanview deck, 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.
