Recently had breakfast at this very pleasant restaurant .......the decor is lovely, very calming and comfortable. However, I requested tea and twice had to ask for milk. My husband had a coffee and again no cream or sugar offered. We felt the server was a little overwhelmed and just had too many tables to serve......I wanted to jump up and... More

My mom and I stayed at the Stanford Park Hotel during a recent trip - and enjoyed a delicious dinner at the restaurant there. The decor is similar to that of a New England manor, very quaint but chic. There weren't many people dining which was perfect for us to relax and have a quiet meal together. For some reason... More

The four of us went here for dinner on a Friday night. We were not able to get a table in the dining room but were able to dine in the bar/lounge area without reservations. The menu is diverse and a little expensive. I had the pork chop which was very good. It would have been nice to get bread... More

The indoor dining area is quiet enough to enjoy our conversations but no one else's, and the hotel bar is very cozy and sophisticated. Service outside was a wee bit slow until we said something. That said, the Menlo Grill... More

I stopped in with a book club lunch group to try Menlo Grill again. New manager , Brian, took over in early Sept. ---great food, great service, and Brian stopped at tables to check on orders, served some himself--great spot for outdoor brunch also and we will be back!

Its a nice quiet restaurant with excellent service and attention to detail. Food choices are abundant and yet they have been carefully designed. Met Manager Brian who was very courteous and so is rest of the staff. They have indoors seating area, lounge / bar and outdoor courtyard seating.

The restaurant in the Stanford Park Hotel is open late which is great for us night owls. And it is so convenient for those of us staying at the hotel.

great menu! lots of fun things to try that are a little different. I was a bit stumped because there were so many things that sounded great. Ended up trying several and was not disappointed. The chef obviously cares what he is presenting and everything was wonderful. Highly recommend breakfast as well as the grill for dining in...and you can... More
