We ate here for the first time on Saturday, it came highly recommended by my daughter, and it did not disappoint. We had a 5pm reservation and we were promptly seated. Our waiter Mark was excellent in all regards. He told us all the specials (what a great memory) which we ended up ordering. We ordered the calamari and although... More

I used open table for the reservation and it worked perfectly. We were seated immediately and ordered drinks which arrived quickly. Our waiter described the many entree specials and took our starter orders. Our starters arrived quickly and the coconut shrimp were especially good. Four diners ordered four different entrees with mixed success. The rib eye special was tough and... More

Service, food & atmosphere all wonderful....only complaint is the chicken pot pie dish was a little too peppery! Other than that, it was excellent.

Friends suggested we try the Stanford Grill with them, as it's one of their faves. Now that we know about it, we'll be back. I ordered the Eggs Benedict (on Sundays they have breakfast as well as lunch choices) and it was delicious (unfortunately it wasn't hot when served.) The others had different sandwiches, all huge. The chicken/avocado was very... More

I try to eat here every time I'm in town. Real lump crab meat w/little/no filler and great cornbread and salads. I love the sophisticated and clean atmosphere.

I recently held my small wedding reception (16 total) at the Stanford Grill and we all had an amazing time. We coordinated everything through their events coordinator Kathy Ratti and the staff went out of their way to accommodate us. I really enjoyed the wood-grilled fish dish and peartini that I had. Others in my party gave great reviews for... More

We ate at Stanford Grill for the 1st time last weekend. Our friends took us there and they know our taste in food so Stanford Grill was an excellent choice. We ordered 2 appetizers, both were delicious and perfectly portioned for the 4 of us. Our waiter was David and we really liked service we received from him and the... More
