Really Great Food - Really Great Service = Excellent Dining Experience

I'll start with the one challenge: this place can get a bit noisy when it's packed, which it almost always is. But with most things in life, there are ways around this: ask for a corner table or visit during the early or later dining hours - if weather permits, sit outside. Now that the noise... read more

We recently had a group of 5 people together for dinner at Stanford Grill. We had eaten there previously and had a great meal but this was a totally different experience. The restaurant was very loud. The service was awful. We had a smug waiter who offered nothing without asking. Three times I asked for a black napkin as I... More

The food is all excellent. It is certainly made with fresh ingredients and cooked perfectly. The crabcakes are among the best I had -- lumps were not broken (they shouldn't be) and they used a nice brown mustard which I prefer -- but at $30 for two small ones are a bit pricey. Their deserts are outstanding -- especially the... More

Delicious food! I had the crab cakes and my son had the roast chicken, both were wonderful. I can recommend the smoked salmon appetizer as well. The portions are huge, we took home leftovers and had them for dinner another night.

This place was outstanding. A large variety of menu items that are prepared fresh. Portion sizes are enormous. If you're in the mood for a sandwich I highly recommend the Cloak and Dagger. A combination of a French Dip and Cuban on a baguette. Decent wine selection with good ones by the glass. The desserts are out of this world,... More

Lots of choices re: where to sit once you've arrived. There's cushy and spacious seating inside, with comfortable temperature control; there's the "indoor patio", and there is actual al fresco dining outside on the terrace. These choices, combined with the delicious food, create the very place you've longed to visit for a wonderful dining experience.

So, do you want a Kid's pancake that is almost bigger than your granddaughter who is trying to eat it? Do you like some light jazz playing while enjoying your family's conversations. Do you like your eggs hot, and your drinks cold on a summer day? The Stanford Grill can meet those expectations and more. My oldest son loved the... More

I went for a business meeting/lunch here. The decor is very homey and comfy. The staff are nice. The food was good and came out very fast. The rotisserie chicken was fab.

My first time at this establishment. Visited with a group of business colleagues. Spent an hour in the bar just chatting. Friendly crowd and bartender. I am not a bar person, but I could easily find myself hanging out here regularly just for the interesting blend of patrons with so many other business travelers and locals that evening. For the...
