“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Breakfast omelette were amazing and served with wafer thin potatoes. The French toast was served with a large cup of fresh berries and marscapone cream. Definitely worth the stop. Had dinner here as well on our stay, the seared scallops were phenomenal and the wait staff and manager were great. I highly recommend the Menlo grill

“Several very good meals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Ate here with friends staying in the area or at the hotel for reunion. The dinner we had was great...all of us had scallops and they were perfect. I had Eggs Benedict for a breakfast and they were very well done as well. I won't mention local celebrity that we saw eating there one morning but he's an NFL Hall of Famer.
I was surprised at how reasonable the prices were at this restaurant, especially when located so close to Stanford U.
