vibe: 5 | quality: 3.5 | service: 3.5 | selection: 4.5 | food: 3 | $$$$

My wife and I ate at Stone on an early Friday evening in June. This was our first time to their bistro: The last time I was in San Diego they were still brewing out of a warehouse.

We made reservations, but the traffic from San Diego was terrible. We called Stone and they pushed our reservation forward, which was nice.

The atmosphere is about the nicest I've seen. It's a huge place, heavy on the stone motif, with granite, slate and other stones throughout the inside and gardens. Even the bathrooms have polished stones in the walls and heavy stall doors that make a noise when they close -- as my wife described -- like you're closing a jail cell. The gardens are beautiful and a pleasure to walk through.

Service was prompt and friendly, though slow after the initial visit and she forgot my wife's drink and our waters. Our server knew Stone's beers and helped me make my choices. Our food was brought by a different server, who noticed as he set down my entree that my tofu stir-fry didn't have any tofu in it; he took it back and fixed it. That was nice.

Of course, the beer selection is good. All of Stone's offerings, plus many guest taps. I got a sampler flight since I wanted to try several.

The food is expensive. My wife got a mac and cheese appetizer for her meal: $14.50. I got their tofu stir-fry, which was about the cheapest dinner entree: $15. Both dishes were just average. And while we understand Stone's philosophy with food, we wish their desserts had a few more traditional options. Cheesecake -- yum -- but with jalapeno peppers -- no thanks. I guess I should look on the bright side: We saved money since we didn't order dessert.

The beers are reasonably priced, however, All of Stone's drafts are about $5.

If I went back, I would just drink the beer and enjoy the surroundings: Skip the food.
