A word from Bishop Grill - San Ramon Marriott
Enjoy a mix of contemporary American dishes with California influences. Bishop Grill is located in Bishop Ranch in the San Ramon Marriott. There's everything from fresh seafood to juicy steaks, plus the world famous Marriott burger and healthy seasonal salads. Pair these with a nice glass of wine from local wineriers from the best regions in the area. Maybe try a pint of micro-brews from our 12 draft beers on tap like Sierra Nevada, Anchor Steam and Schubros Brewery, which is from our own back yard here in San Ramon. We also offer beer and wine flights. If Artisan Cocktails are your preference, we have a full bar ready and waiting! Our weekend brunch features great dishes prepared with fresh ingredients right from our very own San Ramon Farmer's Market. Come relax on our outdoor patio which feature large umbrellas for hot days and an open pit fireplace for cool nights.

    Our family was coming from all directions and we needed a central place to meet for Saturday brunch. No one had any suggestions until I found the Marriott and the Bishop Grill. It is located in an easy access and quiet setting. The dining room was slow at that time and therefore comfortably quiet. We had great conversational flow and were able to speak at a normal talking level. Our drinks and food were served quickly, with the Eggs Benedict receiving great reviews. Our female server was very attentive & pleasant throughout our meal and did not rush us at all. We lingered while finishing our champagne and our conversation. I would like to check out the Marriott for a little weekend getaway with my wife and two small dogs, but the $100 dog fee seems a little steep for one night. Does $100 cover all nights stayed, or is it a nightly charge??

    Third time we've come to Mothers Day Brunch here and this year things were a bit disorganized. We were five minutes early and the hostess told us to sit and wait to be called. Soon after a line formed behind the hostess podium. About five minutes after our reservation time they started letting about six families in line go in. Eventually, the hostess looked over at the three families that arrived early in the seating area and started calling our names. It's not the end of the world but we hated to see people being rewarded for arriving late. Add to this that some food items weren't ready and some hot items had been out long enough to start getting cold. It was nice enough, just could have been better. We may not be back for a fourth.

    Although the food and service were basically satisfactory, when we mentined Open Table, the wait staff and the manager on duty said they had never heard of Open Table. Another manager said she had heard of the organizayion when the manager on duty asked around the hotel, but said tthat the restaurant had no business connection with Open Table, and would not think of giving any information about a customer to any organization. Apparently someone at the Bishop Grill knows about Open Table or you would not have asked me about our experiene, strange as it was. We enjoyed our food and left with a smile and thank you.

    Attended as a business lunch. Very nicely appointed since its remodeling. Good menu selection at reasonable prices. The entree could have been warmer temperature-wise (bbq chicken flatberad) but other wise tasted good, as were the shoestring fires (the lemon aioli was very good). A very casual atmosphere that is suited for casual meals and business meetings.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2003
    Dined on 6/16/2013
    From the moment that our party walked into this hotel dining area, I knew that I had made a terrible mistake in choosing it to celebrate Father's Day. The setting was not ideal for celebrations, the ambience was a negative one, scenery was lacking and the breakfast buffet food was very poor, but the barbeque lunch buffet was slightly better. This hotel should never advertise and ask for others to join them to celebrate any occassion. To be honest, even if I were a guest at this hotel, I would not choose to eat in their dining area...it reminds me of a dining area in a low budget hotel.

    A refreshing and innovative change from new name, decor and most importantly a new Executive Sous Chef who uses local sources combined with a creative approach to fantastic entrees'. This place will be a destination for the locals once the word gets out as it has to the many conventions booked including ours of over 200 will be surprised and pleased with the new twist on the originals. Chef Frank's use of the basic five ingredients in each of his offerings really is a true journey to culinary delight. The sampling of his cut flat iron steak with a reduction sauce/presentation/special spuds/green layers was exceptional; the "Mary" chicken was a classic with a hint of citrus, moist and no wonder it's probably one of their signature dishes.

    My team and I had lunch at Stixx & Steaks, and the menu was EXTREMELY limited. Service was slow, and the waiter did not pour the wine in the glasses evenly --- the first glass got too much, so by the end of the bottle, the last person hardly got any. We will not be returning to this venue, and would not recommend it to anyone.

    I expected much more. The menu was limited. The preparation was unimaginative and frankly done to minimum standards. Service was so so. We were asked about the food and service. An example would be an orienal salad that consisted of a prepared chicken breast on top of lettuce with a few cucumbers. Scant dressing was applied. We dined here because we attended a convention zt the Marriott. The beef tenderloin was ok. It had a standard brown sauce, served with sad mashed potatoes and asparagas. The breakfast bar compared to a middle rate hotel breakfast.

    The restaurant is located in the Marriott Hotel. It took a while for staff to acknowledge us waiting to be seated. When I mentioned I had a reservation, the waiter did not check a list so I didn't know if my reservation was listed. It took about 10-15 minutes to receive a menu and about as long before the waitress took our order. Food was ok but not fantastic. I was a guest of the hotel and attending a conference there. It was the only restaurant in the immediate area. There was adequate staffing, but unorganized it appeared they did not have assigned duties, so the staff was trying to cover the bar, wait and clear tables, greet guests, etc.

    It was saturday and not very busy. We were greeted fairly quickly by the waitress and served coffee pretty quickly. The staff moved slowly and seemed to be overwhelmed by the tables that were there and encouraged us to use the buffet. We ordered off the menu. When the food arrived it was Luke warm. Like it was from the buffet. Our toast and muffins did not arrive with our food. The eggs were under cooked and greasy, like eggs poured from a bucket not freshly scrambled. The overall quality of the food equaled that of a cheap diner and wasn't even close to worth the 13.25 we would be paying for each breakfast. We complained about the eggs and waited for new ones. They never came and no one really seemed to care. Skip this place.

    I had high expectations for the brunch since we were going to a Marriotts Hotel. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed. We were a group of 6 and ushered away into a separate room from what seemed to be the actual restaurant. The room was filled with 4 big tables intended to seat parties of 10. It felt more like a private party room for 40 people rather than being in a restaurant. As for the food, there wasn't much of a selection. I was happy to see, however, that they were serving an omelete station, prime rib carving station, shrimp cocktail, and chocolate fondue. Other than that, there was not much more that was worth going back for seconds.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 4/8/2012
    Went there for Easter brunch. Someone forgot to light the steam tables so the food was cold!!! How could that happen, especially on such a major dining out holiday? Your in the food and lodging business! THAT'S WHAT YOU DO!!! But the food there would be mediocre at best, even if it was served at an edible temperature. And this place is WAY OVER PRICED. In the past couple of years I've learned that ANYTHING with the name "Marriott" on it is going to be a bad experience at a rip off price. In fairness I've given various Marriott restaurants and hotels several tries over this period of time hoping that mine were just isolated experiences but they never get better so now I've given up on them.

    Hotel guest were having a meet and greet in the lobby area adjacent to the restaurant. The noise level was excessive, however well within the norm for such an event. The problem was the proximity to the dining area. This event ended at approximately 8:00 p.m. I do feel the restaurant service personnel were delayed due to the high volume of persons at the event. The wait for bar service was unacceptable.

    I won't be so mean because the employees were nice to open that day and work on Christmas day. However, a lot went wrong. 1. it took forever to get our appetizer, 2. it took forever to get our food. 3. the food was not even cooked well. They did apologize, but it would have been better to have a complimentary drink or food, or discount. Especially because we had came to here to celebrate a wedding anniversary, so the experience here really stinked.

    Had to wait over an hour from time of seating to receiving dinner. Twice told staff we were waiting for our dinner more than an hour. Had to ask for refill on ice for ice tea. Food was barely warm when finally served. We were temped to go home and cook a frozen dinner from our freezer rather than continue to wait. Yes, we did discuss this as an option when we passed an hour.
