Excellent quality food - the "country" potatoes and the bacon are worth the visit but I'm also a big fan of their coffee and complimentary orange juice at breakfast
Great food and good vibe. Able to have a conversation!
Tough to get a 2nd drink from the Bar, until your dinner arrives and then you will be half done with dinner - always cold inside, better in the spring or summer - does not serve Tito's vodka, or any other gluten free drinks nor bread - isn't this Palo Alto - Food is ok not great
Great recommendations from our server. An excellent meal over all. Mayfield is a favorite!
Extremely overpriced. We were served 2 raw chicken sandwiches and received zero discount. Instead they replaced the food with a more expensive item. The food was either really salty or bland. There was no consistency. The only good part was the bread and cookies. If I ever go back it will be for the bakery and thats it.
The menu was small and was not clear on the non-alocohol beverages. We had to get a waiter to bring us a different menu for the 2nd time in order to show the reg. drinks like tea an coffee options.
My friend and neighbor loves it here. We ate here together before and always enjoy it. The short ribs on polenta was fabulous and her Petrale sole in parchment was light and very good too! The cranberry buckle cake was recommended and it was delicious It has inspired me to find a recipe and try to recreate it.
Service was good. Fried chicken was unexceptional and burger was underdone. Pomegranate gingeraid was refreshing.
French bistro climate. Very good kir royal and bread.
Best restaurant in all of Palo Alto
Have been a loyal customer and enjoyed the food, but something was very wrong with the Tuscan Kale Salad with chicken. In the past, the salad included fresh walnuts and other wonderful ingredients, and the chicken addition was a warm rotisserie half breast, sliced thinly across and placed on the side. The salad we experienced had large cubes of apples and the chicken was cold and also cubed, as if it was taken from a refrigerator after several days. I hope Mayfield realizes that quality of food is the prime reason customers come back. I am moving to another venue at the Stanford Shopping Center, with several new organic restaurants opening there.
Crowded and louder than expected for a Sunday morning brunch
Met my college student for brunch on a Sunday. The food was quite tasty (I had the French omlette with brie and mushrooms, he had the French toast with caramelized bananas) and was served quickly. However, the noise level was so loud that I could barely hear him without learning across the table. The wait staff was a bit rushed, and didn't come by to refill water or coffee automatically, but was quick to do so when asked. I would go back again, but perhaps not during prime brunch time (10:30 am).
We love Mayfield. Whether dining inside or out on the patio, it is always worth the visit. With the bakery right next store you are assured of excellent breads,madalenes, cookies, etc. The service is always friendly. Wise to book ahead on weekends.
I ordered the roasted Brussel sprouts and the beet and bread salad with chicken. My friend ordered the braised short ribs with veggies. It was all perfect except for the table next to us, big, lots of kids and quite loud. Oh well, it was still good!!!
The food was amazing and the ambience was perfect for hanging out with great friends on a Friday. Highly recommend the chocolate chip cookie for desert!
This is my favorite restaurant in the Bay Area. I make it a point to try and order foods I normally don't like because Mayfields makes everything spectacular!! And it's turned me into a pepper and parsnip lover.
My second time eating there and unfortunately the value was not satisfactory. 84.00 for french toast and a fried chicken sandwich? The servings of french toast wasn't presented on the plate with any flare for the 16.00 price. It's bread. I suspect that I was charged for the adult plate when given the kids plate instead (which is half the price).
Usual love this place, but this time it was a real disappointment. The service was very spotty and slow. Took us over 2 hours to have a simple lunch! The main entree of pasta arrived COLD--not even room temperature. No apologies when they heated it up. Never got any bread even though everyone else did. No one asked how things were going or checking back. Very loud also.
Good fresh food and friendly service!
