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.

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

We were a large group, and our server was attentive & patient. In fact, all the staff was friendly. There's plenty of parking, as the restaurant is in the Stanford Park Hotel. Sadly, that's about as far as the positives go. it is very expensive for what you get. I had the pan roasted day boat scallops: grilled corn &... More

I am torn about this restaurant. On the one hand, it's very convenient with lots of parking, and a nice setting. The portions were huge, good variety of dishes on the menu, many of them very tempting. The service was very good. And the prices about average. The fly in the ointment was that the food, while looking great on... More
