Took my wife there for a Sunday brunch. The staff are very professional and some of the best in the restaurant business. The brunch menu has great selections. The crab cakes are a good selection if you go.

Tried this restaurant on recommendation of local friend during a visit to the area. Restaurant uses "Copper Canyon" as part of their name and menu heading. Facility is large, low ceiling heavy on stone with lots of booths; Kitchen is open to the dining area in the rear. High noise level due to the hard surfaces and low ceiling --... More

We wanted to take family members out for a special occasion (birthday and anniversary combined celebration). The restaurant was packed, but the low lighting and just right booths made conversation easy. The service was "world class", meaning you won't find better service anywhere. Waiters were polite, well-educated, very well dressed, and informative. The waiters knew the menu in detail...if anything,... More

Stopped here for a business lunch on the advice of a colleague. The restaurant is tucked away in the back of a business park. Upon entry, I was impressed with the sophisticated decor and ribbon fireplace on the wall. It was incredibly warm and inviting. The food and service were excellent all around. Sizable portions from a wide, varying menu.... More

We went on a family birthday celebration. we had made specific request for a table reservation as opposed to a booth. When we got there they did not have tables. the manager on duty was extremely helpful and worked out a seating set up that worked for us. Our party of six each had something different from the menu and... More

Stanford Grill is an excellent restaurant for special occasions. I gave had their cake cakes, rottessierie chicken, fish Tacos, various salads, Coconut Shrimp, and a few other items I am sure! However, the bread pudding is on the best I have had in this region! It is absolutely a must have. In addition, the atmosphere is quite lovely. This is... More

Four of us stopped in on the way back from Baltimore to DC on a Friday evening. From the minute we walked in we could feel the cozy, comfortable vibe. A jazz trio by the front door played throughout our visit, and the lighting and ambience contributed to a relaxing dinner. Wine was reasonably priced, and the entrees were pretty... More

We only came here to try something different and was quite glad we did. Rather crowded at times but the food is excellent. No doubt one of the best in the area. It's a bit pricy but just like their food, the restaurant has a nice ambience which is both comtemporary and elegant. You also get quality service here. A... More

We had a family dinner here to celebrate our daughter's college graduation. Wonderful service, excellent food! Everyone ordered a different entree, and we all enjoyed our meals! Some had steak, others chicken, others seafood. Mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables. Yum!
