hard to believe – Visiting Salt Lake City and my wife wanted a good pizza to enjoy in our hotel room instead of getting out in the bad weather. Found Stoneground on the internet. Called them and learned they do not deliver...no problem. Drove there on a Sunday night to get a pizza to go...they would not sell me one. Said Sunday night was only for dine in....WHAT!! They actually declined to sell me a pizza! I am 53 and travel quite a bit on business and pleasure...have never heard of such nonsense..
Great Pizza – They have the best hot chix pizza - try it and you'll crave it like I do! Pretty good service - kinda what you would expect, they get very busy and since it's kinda small you want to get there early. Good place to hang out and have a drink with your friends - maybe play some pool too!
Best East Coast (or Irish) Family Pub in Utah – As a Utah transplant from the Northeast, our family (which does not drink or smoke) was accustomed to the relaxed atmosphere, unique cuisine and personal service of "family pubs" in New Jersey and New York. The Stoneground is like coming home.
The owner is an authentic upstate New Yorker. The menu and recipes are from his family cookbook. The original chef was a graduate of the Culinary Institue of America (CIA) on the Hudson River north of New York.
The brushetta, pastas, pizza and speciality salads are authentic, delicious and served in generous portions for sharing. The tiramissu is the "best in the west." (If you visit on St. Patrick's Day, you can expect authentic Corned Beef & Cabbage!)
Be sure to spend a minute talking to the owner (Bob), who is also the maitre'd much of the time. Tell him "Ray" sent you.
P.S. Don't go if you are in a hurry. You'll miss the experinece.
my favorite restaurant in downtown Salt Lake City – Come for the free pool (2-5pm), stay for the pizza and pasta.
This is where I go for creamy tomato basil soup. The chicken pesto pizza is one of my favorites in Salt Lake. The baked ziti has been complimented by more discerning people than I. Everything I've had here has been really really good. It takes four hours to make the tiramisu but if they're out of it, you will just have to go back. (If that sentence seems awkward it's because CitySearch doesn't allow a certain word I tried to use. It begins with 'r' and is followed by 'u', then 'n' then 's.')
Be aware that Sunday is all-you-can-eat pizza so the regular menu is not available.
Try yelp for really good reviews without all the corporate gunk.
Best Italian dining in Utah – The person that owns this place is a genius. The service was out of this world. The pizza was perfect along with the selection of topping. Toppings ranged from meat, vegetable, and herbs. The pizza had great consistency and just plain looked good. The crab cakes and chicken wings were also made to perfection. The wine that was recommended to go with my entree was "right on". The candle lit tables and smooth jazz music just made my dining experience out of this world.
Don't confuse the waiters.... – So - yeah - four professional women walk in and we each have our own special orders. Nothing too outrageous - salad dressing on the side, a roll with lunch, extra slice of cheese pizza. We immediately noticed our waiter wasn't writing it down - so we asked if he could. When he got back - wrote everything down. 45 MINUTES LATER our incorrect orders showed up - well - partially. The remainder showed up 10 MINUTES LATER THAN THAT! Our waiter - not very nice - pounding things on our table like it was OUR fault the kitchen was slow & he had messed up our order. When I kindly told him he needs to be nicer to his patrons and all he had to do was apologize - he gruffed and walked off. NOT going to be one of our regular spots.
Slipping a bit, Yet still amazing – I agree that Stonegrounds isn't the same as it used to be, it was my favorite pizza (The greek god was amazing!) but over the past few months the meatballs are a shadow of what they used to be. And I have been hearing similar feelings all around.
However I know many folk who never even knew Stonegrounds served pizza because of their fascination with the pasta's or sandwiches. They are a definite must try! The smoked cheddar sauce is amazing and their tomato basil soup is as addictive as it ever was. And although its been a while since I had it their parmesan eggplant sandwich is the only eggplant I'll ever touch.
Staff has always been courteous and quick to give out excellent recommendations. Though I only frequent the restaurant between lunch and 6pm weekdays, so I can relax among only a few other customers and watch the urban life below through their large window. But if your into hustle and bustle their Sunday pizza buffet is a nice way to become familiar with their variety.
Pork tenderloin is splendid, superb, wonderful, outstanding, etc. – A friend and coworker recommended I try the pork tenderloin at Stoneground and not only was I not disappointed, I have a new favorite meal of all time. The pork tenderloin is served with a cranberry mushroom sauce over polenta. Don't like polenta? Try it anyway. I am not a fan of polenta, but Stoneground's is incredible. It is crispy on the outside and almost like a corn custard on the inside. The cranberry and mushroom sauce went perfectly with the tender pork and polenta. My dinner companion had spaghetti and meatballs and enjoyed her meal too. For dessert we had the tiramisu and I'm sure we would have liked it a whole lot more if we had not been miserably full.
AWESOME!! This Place Rocks! – Always Great! Anytime that I go into Stoneground I have a WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE! I have been dining at Stoneground probably twice a week for the past 3 years. It is the first place I take a friend or relative when we go out. The food, wine and ambiance is AWESOME, and the service is consistent. I love the fact that they use fresh ingredients in all their dishes and that they don't even own a microwave! I suggest the Steve's Special and leave room for their Tiramisu.....They are both to die for!! Its been nice to watch this place grow and become the great local's spot that it is. Keep up the good work! STONEGROUND ROCKS!!!!
Horrible, Horrible, Horrible!!! – The most horrible dining experience I have had to date. After being served microwaved, cardboard pizza, four, YES FOUR people in our large group dining were forgotten and never served their meals. After waiting an hour and a half, we finally asked about the meals, because others in our group were served, and were rudely told that it was a mistake and that we should be more patient, as if waiting almost two hours isn't patient enough.
Not to mention that the waitress kept arguing with us saying that we hadn't ordered the meals. After the whole ordeal, I talked to the manager, and the rude waitress was standing behind the counter, interrupting our conversation saying "they didn't order that." Very, very unprofessional!! Hire some new help and work on your food, because that place is sinking FAST!!! We will never return.
