Just really don't like its urban styling, very cold. Good bread pudding. It's nice to sit in a booth.

Love the atmosphere of the restaurant, looks like it could become a favorite "hangout".....its hidden away in a corporate area. Went for a Saturday birthday lunch and it was not crowded, I imagine they do large weekday and happy hour business. They also have a jazz brunch advertised that would be fun. Wait staff attentive, food very good, one item... More

Good service. We usually go here in the evening, about once every 4 months or so, and it's always packed. A bit noisy, because of the crowd. Seldom very long of a wait for a table. Tasty food, and the live jazz music is spectacular.

Stopped in for a business lunch and was so delightfully surprised. The wonderful high-quality menu and perfectly prepared foods were ideal for this business lunch. This would also be great for any event. Our meals ranged from wood plank smoked trout to specialty sandwiches which everyone enjoyed. As an added bonus, we got to sit next to the fireplace on...

My wife and I celebrated a good friends birthday with his wife. His wife needed gluten free, server, bought a gluten free menu. I had the Stanford Burger, it's named after the restaurant. It was cooked the way I asked and delicious. Everyone else enjoyed the service and food. The restaurant is a bit hidden, but finding it was not... More

Atmosphere is fantastic - especially on the freezing day I visited. The rotisserie chickens turning and the warm fire are some of the reasons I decided on here to take an old friend to lunch. Service was good, not exceptional. Ordered a skillet of cornbread and instead a slice came. Server was nice, but not too engaging. Food left A... More

First off, I want to give a special thank you and acknowledgement to our server last night Amanda! She was phenomenal. Very attentive, but didn't hover and gave us great suggestions for our meals. This is my second visit to Stanford Grill, it's kind of in a strange area geographically, but that doesn't bother me, it just feels like a... More

I had never been to this restaurant before, but took a chance based on the good reviews and booked a party of 6 on New Years Eve for our first visit. Neither Stanford Grill nor Trip Advisor disappointed. The food was really top notch, service was great, and wine was really nice. Everyone from the 4 yo to the 84... More

I went to Stanford Grill in November and liked it so much I returned in December, plus I purchased a gift certificate for a family member. Both times I sat at the bar which was quite busy (holiday celebrations and all that jazz). Visit 1: steak & martinis; visit 2: bar food and martinis. The place is beautiful, the food... More
