good food but a bit pricey

i would hae given five stars but for a few small details. First is for a restaurant like the the prices were a bit high. The food was good and portions were large. The second issue is they ran out of bread? How do you run out of bread? The best part of the meal was the cheesecake. I would... read more

This could be a great place, but they just don't get it! Given them several opportunities but something always goes wrong - food undercooked, wait staff extremely slow, served the wrong drink, waiter with limited knowledge of what they are serving, red bell peppers served on everything (why? - yuck!), etc., etc. I'm done with them.

Their food is good but they use a lot of spices and rubs. If you like this, you'll lime the food. Personally, we don't and ALWAYS tell them this is our first time visiting and prefer no spice or rub on their chicken which is what we typically have. Nice ambiance.

The service was great here and the food was OUT OF THIS WORLD perfect. I also loved the ambiance. It is quite pricey though. But worth it, if you can afford it. Definitely good for romantic couple date, girls night out or a large group of friends. If you have friends or family in from out of town, take them... More

Took a large group from work here for lunch on Friday and everything was as it always is. Good service, tasty food, too plentiful portions, and wonderful desserts. Keep up the good work.

The Stanford Grill has an awesome and live atmosphere. I dined at the restaurant on February 26, 2015 for the first time with a date. I was so impressed by the energy of the place and the amount of people dining out. However, to my dismay my entree was not at all enjoyable. The spinach was smothered in onions and... More

Had a Caesar salad which was very big & tasty. Had the spare ribs & asked for them dry rub (instead of BBQ sauce). They complied & the... More

This is a very busy place, so if you can get there in advance. I had the special with grilled mahi-mahi, and it was amazing! Also, if you are staying at Columbia Courtyard Marriott Hotel, you get a free dessert! Menu selection is excellent as well!
