A Favorite – I LOVE the house salad. Something is in that dressing! Add chicken for $2 and ask for a roll or two, and you will be moaning!
The tiramisu is not all it's cracked up to be... IT'S INCREDIBLE. I have literally driven here just to have it. It made there in house, and its really to die for. You have never had anything quite like this place! The quality is superb, the seating is nice, the atmosphere is relaxed.. and even the bathroom is interesting.
This is very much a favorite of mine in SLC.
Reliable and Wonderful – I have been dining at Stoneground for years. This is my go to place to take out of town guests. My many friends from NYC are pleasantly shocked to be served authentic New York style pizza this far west. The ambience is superb, and its location on the second floor gives it a wonderful speak-easy feel.
If you dig comfort, wonderful food (especially pizza) and a grown-up atmosphere you will enjoy this restaurant as much as I do.
god-awful food – Stoneground was OK a few years ago, but has really gone downhill. Went there twice recently (had two Living Social coupons to spend) and both times went away vowing to never go again. First time the pasta (seafood diavolo, since removed from the menu...hmmm) was so salty it was inedible, and so oily that I felt ill looking at the pools of grease on the plate; today for lunch the salad I had was obviously prepared last night with limp greens, rotten greens, dessicated shriveled cucumber, and mealy, disgusting tomato. What cook or waitperson would dare serve such a thing? A simple fresh green salad is something a child could make. The chicken parm sandwich was dried out, and had clearly been reheated under a broiler to the point that the edges of the meat were like jerky. I'm very angry to have spent any money at all at this place. Never again, when there are so many great and good and so-so places to eat in SLC.
Poor Customer Service – Terrible service. We brought our baby boy and there was such little food that he was getting restless. The manager told us that he was bothering others and we needed to keep him quiet. We were there on a Sunday night where they do the pizza 'buffet' all you can eat. We said that there was a lack of food to keep him occupied since he was hungry but they didn't care. We later asked if anyone had complained and they said no, so it's a non-issue right there. They then were pushy to get us our check, when we had had very little pizza because of how slow they were and how small the pizza slices were. The manager also rolled her eyes several times at us while standing right next to our table, after having just finished addressing us. That is definitely not customer service and the owners need to address it. Poor experience because of lack of customer service and will never return and will turn away all I know.
Excellent Food, Fun Ambient, and Friendly Service – We stumbled across this one. This is a small restaurant/lounge upstairs. They serve great food. We've been twice now and haven't disliked anything we've ordered.
You will especially like the pizzas.
Enjoy this one.
One of the Best! – If you're looking for a hip and quaint little joint with excellent food, this is the place! This was only our first time there, but we left very impressed. The atmosphere was very urban, college town with a hint of rustic mystique. The service was thoughtful, attentive and efficient, but not overbearing. The location is great being right across the street from the Library Trax station. The garlic-cheese bread was a wonderful start to the meal...very flavorful and cooked to perfection. The menu was loaded with traditional and non-traditional dishes, but, being that this was our first time there, we decided to go with the Stoneground Classic pizza. The crust was tender-crispy and the toppings were a great combination. There was a spicy perfection to this pizza that you don't find many places. I don't believe they use a traditional brick oven, but you'd be hardpressed to tell the difference. We will definitely return to see if their other menu items are as wonderful as the ones that we savored on our first trip! But be sure to get there early...the place really fills up in a hurry!
This Place Sets the Bar When it Comes to Pizza! – I LOVE THIS PLACE!! The food is fantastic and there is so much to choose from on the menu. It overlooks library square and has a great mood about it. I love the Caprese and I want everyone to try it. Very professional and put together service. The pizza is delicious and can be as eccentric or as plain as you want they have all the toppings you could ask for. Very quiet and intimate perfect for a date.
Delicious, Open Late, Fun Place – I often go to Stoneground just because it's one of the VERY few places in Salt Lake where you can be seated after 9pm at a restaurant (I think seating stops at 11 or so - call and ask). I'm always impressed. My boyfriend loves the beer, I love the pork chops. And back when I was a vegetarian, it was veggie friendly. This place is highly recommended in my book.
Great New York Style Pizza – I had the pizza for the first time last night and it was like a fish finding water in the desert. Stoneground is a really classy place to get good pasta, beer and shoot pool, but the remarkable thing about this place for me is something that some might not appreciate; the simple but unsurpassed satisfaction of being served New York style pizza. I moved from New York to SLC six years ago and had their pizza for the first time last night and I tell you, this pizza place serves the thin, slightly crispy crusted pizza, with just right amount of sauce seasoned just the right way, topped with just the right amount of cheese that New Yorkers take for granted and that Salt Lakers might not appreciate, but that someone from New York dearly misses.
Pizza good service and management horrible. – Our party of 11 had made a prior reservation. The restaurant was fairly busy with about 60-70 people. As n oted on the table tent there would be approximately 10 minutes between servings when busy. Nevertheless, after an h our and a half our group had only been served 3 pieces of pizza ($12.99 +$2.90 tip included). When we requested more pizza and noted our concern to the manager he came to the table and didn't believe us because his server had made 10 passes and initialed each pass. Well he might have made 10 passes but with each pizza only serving 10-12 slices and about 70 people seated in the restaurant...you can do the math. No apologies, no understanding or compassion. I have been in the business for over 35 years and I was appalled. Their bio states that the owner moved from New York to Salt Lake City, well he should go back to New York if that is his idea of customer service. We do not recommend this restaurant and will not be returning. I teach Hospitality Management and Culinary Arts and have yet another example of poor Hospitality.
