Quiet Dinner at Menlo Grill

Very plain and all greasy bacon and eggs with hash browns, no home fried or country taters. I would imagine dinner is better.

Two of us had lunch there. Salmon and burger. The waiter was from Sri Lanka and was willing to customize our orders any way we wanted. The only hitch was that the Arnold Palmer was a little too sour for my taste.

We had a reservation, no one was there when we arrived so being seated at a nice window table was not a problem. I ordered a glass of chardonnay which I am very familiar with. When it arrived, it was either not what I ordered or it was poured from a bottle that had gone bad. The waitress insisted it... More

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
