Stoneburner is an Italian-American spot in Ballard with good neapolitan pizza and decent everything else, though the pastas are a crap shoot.

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.

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.

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.

Had a very nice evening. Food was good, although they ran out of a pasta that we wanted so we had the pork chop which takes 30+ minutes to cook and it was dry and too spicy.

Shaved Brussels however, it will be our last.
Secondly, we commented to waitress our displeasure but received a disingenuous response.

I would give it an overall 5 star rating however the dinner experience started extremely bad as soon as we were getting seated. We had made reservations for 4 people for my wife's 40th bday a few weeks in advance, stating that it was for a bday. When we arrived, we were seated at what I would say is the worst table in the restaurant. It's directly next to the kitchen line and the table next to it is literally so close that it might as well be a table of 8 (it's awkwardly close).

We expressed some disappointment to the host which he basically said there was nothing he could do, and said he would move the other table next to us, which he did, about 1/3 of an inch (we actually laughed because it almost felt more like an insult) even though several other tables were open. My friends husband finally got up and asked again if there was any way to get any other table in the restaurant as we were simply going to leave and go elsewhere.

That is when the manager came out, spoke to us, relocated us to a table of 4 in the bar and the experience was excellent. The manager really was genuine and understood our let down when we had first arrived and he handled the situation exceptionally.

It was just unfortunate in the beginning because when you make reservations weeks in advance, the last thing you would expect is to get the worst table in the entire restaurant. Don't get me wrong, I'm not expecting the best table by any means, it was just a shock that walk-ins were getting better tables than our group of 4 that made reservations weeks prior.

Once we started dinner, the service was top notch, food & drinks were great. Everyone absolutely loved the experience and I think this is such a great place to come for food that the table can share and some really tasty cocktails. Thankfully for their manager, they saved a $400+ table of 4 that night.

I had a generally great experience at Stoneburner's. I had the steak meal, which was out of this world, although a little overpriced I thought at $31. Great, excellent Caesar salad with the hominy croutons just a little different and much better than regular ones, and a nice dressing with egg. My fiancee had the spaghetti, with bone marrow stock, which she was disappointed in, but I tasted it and found it to be interesting and unusual, and frankly good. So all in all, coupled with a great server, we had a fun and pleasant birthday (hers) dinner.

I've eaten at Stoneburner many times. The food is generally quite good, the bar and restaurant are handsome and the neighborhood is great for walking around after a meal. This time I was there with a friend and we both enjoyed our food. However, the music was too loud and it took us a while to settle in and focus on each others so that we could enjoy a good conversation. I don't appreciate your insistence on calling all that noise "energetic."

Despite the noise level, I return to Stoneburner because I generally like the food, particularly the brunch options. This Saturday, I particularly liked the avocado Big Toast after getting over my disappointment that the poached eggs on polenta cakes were no longer on the menu.

It took ages to get our food.
The pizza was burnt. The waiter said, it’s because it’s made in an oven. To be fair, pizza at other tables was not burnt.
Meat and fish were very salty. They teplaced the fish when we asked. Other people in our group decided to finish their burnt and salty dishes, because getting new ones could have taken just as long, and we were already too hungry.
The meat and fish dishes looked good though.

Fantastic spot for your casual nights, friends, and significant other special dates. Any reason will do to have dinner at Stoneburner. Environment was busy but wasn't insanely loud, conversation was easy. Very welcoming. Service was fantastic. Our waitress gave great recommendations and pairings, along with great service. Dinner was wonderful. All the wines we tried was terrific. Charcuterie was divine and plentiful. Small plates were in season and superb. And lastly our main plates in pasta and pizza were marvelous. We waddled out on very happy on full tummies. High recommended!

The service was on point and lovely. Really appreciated the sincere servers and adding a touch to the birthday dessert (a candle) that I had asked for in the online reservation but didn't mention again in person. Totally impressed as a former server! The food wasn't quite as good as I had heard about, maybe the dishes we chose weren't the all time favorites. Will come back and try different dishes.

We visited during Restaurant week. The two first course items and the two desserts we tried were all excellent and we will order again. The main courses were not as much to our liking, but we have no doubt that we would find ones we wanted if not holding ourselves to the Restaurant week menu. The service was great and friendly, except that there was a very long wait for the dessert course -- apparently the kitchen got backed up.
