After reading some reviews on this site, we selected Stanford Grill as the site of a "Whoppee it's Spring Break " lunch." When we saw the packed parking lot, we knew already we had probably made a good choice. Seated in the clubby (leather, wood, open fire) restaurant, we saw that the management had hitched their wagon to two key... More

Agree with some of the other reviewers that the food is good, but a little overpriced. Got free desert for staying at the hotel next door. I had the steak salad and it was quite good. Live jazz was a nice touch. Staff seemed a little bit too casual/hip, but service was OK.

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... 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.
