Quiet Dinner at Menlo Grill

Loved the food, loved the service, only downfall was the food came out too fast! We were trying to enjoy a real date and not rush. But I will go back!

This restaurant is located in The Stanford Park Hotel. We had a nice lunch in the bar area - attentive wait staff. Corn chowder was a little thin, guacamole had no zing and the chips were tasteless. The burger was delicious as were the fries. Nice atmosphere but disappointed in the food.

Menlo Grill and Bistro and Bar is nestled in the Stanford Park Hotel and the breakfasts are so delicious. I tried the Frittata, a mixture of ham, bacon, sausage and cheddar cheese in fluffy egg goodness. The plate arrived hot along with a delish large cup of coffee. I also tried the fresh strawberries and they were so sweet, truly... More

Finding a nice in between spot to meet friends from the South Bay is not always easy when coming from the city (SF), as there are numerous choices and but they're not always very good choices. So I thought I'd share this great experience as I've always wanted to try it, and it didn't disappoint. We had a great time... More
