Breakfast and lunch experiences were excellent. Fresh food and good service. Not to mention the late night glasses of port that made the day!

I had the chance to eat here twice. First night I got the Filet, and it was excellent. 2nd night the Salmon, and it too was very good (and quite filling as it came on a bed of pasta). Both dishes were well prepared and was very pleased, and felt though not cheap, it was a good value for the... More

While a local Palo Alto hotel usually catering to tourists, don't ever overlook this restaurant. Interesting and delicious food...something for everyone!

We were looking for quiet and a light dinner near Stanford Hospital. Menlo Grill Bistro was delightful. While we only ordered a salad, a starter and one entree our meal began with a surprise amuse bouche of smoked salmon, creme fraiche and a very amusing tomato powder that dissolved instantly on the tongue. Service was great and we thoroughly enjoyed... More

We had a long business lunch here. The waiter was very willing to explore off-menu items and combinations! Much appreciated. Large servings, so we landed up with too much food. We had garlic fries, kale salad, fish tacos and a burger. All good but not memorable!

Wanted to meet a friend at a place where we could eat outside so I made a reservation here, Got seated at a table for four and 10 minutes later, was asked to move because they were sold out and needed the larger table for a bigger party. Turns out there was no larger party and the table was given... More

You may love the bustling breakfasts at Brian's in Los Altos but when I want a quiet upscale place to take my out of town relatives, it is the Menlo Grill. The service is outstanding and the food well prepared and presented. The menu is straight forward rather than trendy. We have always eaten in the room to your left... More
