Stanford Grill - Columbia
I brought my wife for her 50th birthday dinner and we were happy with everything especially with your server. My only negative was I asked for my steak to be well done and it was not. they took it back and brought me the same steak and my potato's and green beans were cold. I was very unhappy with that, but because it was my wife's birthday I did not want to cause a scene.
My wife’s favorite restaurant.
We ordered two glasses of the Segura Viudas, Brut Cava at 10 dollars a glass, but when the bill came it showed two glasses of the Veuve Clicquot at 19 dollars a glass. Was it a mistake? We were not sure which we actually were served. We did not say anything because it was our anniversary and I did not want to make a big fuss, but it is somewhat annoying that we were put in this position.
Excellent food, atmosphere, and service! Always amazing.
Our server was very attentive and the food was very good but the bar service took FORVER! We had our appetizers before drinks. Every time another drink was ordered it took way too long.
Overall experience good. However, I sent in a special request to serve my husband a glass of champagne for his birthday and they did not. But I will give them credit for recognizing his birthday and provided him with a free dessert. I would for sure go back.
As usual, the food, the drinks, the staff and the restaurant was absolutely exquisite!
Great service and food.
Second time there and it hasn't disappointed yet. Food and service is excellent. I had the double pork chop with braised red cabbage and goat cheese. Both were excellent. Looking forward to the next time we go.
Food was great as usual. Started with hummus and calamari. 1/2 the table got tacos, I got ahi tuna salad. Service was excellent.
We are never disappointed when we eat at the Stanford Grill. We go for the delicious food and excellent service and we got delicious food and excellent service.
You have the best ribs in Columbia!
The service was good. I especially liked the french pressed coffee. I had brunch with my daughter after church and we both enjoyed the steak and eggs. Very consistent restaurant.
I love this restaurant. Great for a steak! Had the Prime Rib and my family enjoyed the Tenderloin, and it was perfect. Try the egg roll appetizers you will not regret it! We also tried the crab cakes, yes first time for all of us (just moved to MD) and was very impressive. The waiter, the chef and staff are awesome. I do complain when I need too, however, never here. I have never been disappointed with their meals. I am also a member of the Woodfire club which adds up to money back for eating here. This is my kind of place. I will be back.
Great food & service. Thank you to Waiter Van! He made my family feel welcomed and he was extremely knowledgeable.
Server was fantastic, friendly and remembered our special occasion. We got seated near the fireplace which we'd noted.
Food is always outstanding. Service is great. Live music made a really nice ambiance. Not a bad dish on the menu. Will come again and again.
Needed quiet area ignored request (when quieter areas were available) seated in noisy area next to kitchen, rushed to order wine, brought wrong meal and had to wait 10 minutes for correct one, shoe string fries were hard and cold, vegetarian burger off menu (only reason for going there). Wouldn't recommend this restaurant.
Great food and service at moderatel e
price. We go often.
It was my mother 83th birthday. Everyone enjoyed all the starters as well as the entrees. Will certainly be returning.
Excellent food and service.
Overall the food was just so-so, which is unusual for this restaurant. I had the special, which was a mixed grill with a filet with a Gorgonzola butter, spinach, mashed potatoes and scallops. it sounded delicious, but the steak came out sorely undercooked and had to be sent back at which point it came back cooked correctly but remained flavorless. The spinach also had no flavor and the scallops were just so-so in flavor although they were perfectly cooked. I will say that the bread pudding there is excellent and not to be missed. The service was outstanding as always, and I have no complaints about that. The manager visited our table to apologize for the undercooked steak and to ask me if I wanted anything else while I was waiting for it to be recooked. Overall, I will definitely come back to this restaurant as it is a local favorite and some of the best food in the area. I think tonight’s food was likely an anomaly.
Brandon and the other staff are simply amazing!!! The club salad was ok but everything else was amazing. The music, wine and fiesta rolls are perfect!!!
Birthday... Food was ok. Not the best, but acceptable Service was from a young lady Sara, she was great! Made the experience awesome.
Always a winner — never disappointed— great price for the quality food — appropriate dining for any occasion —
The service was great because all of the waiters assist when something is needed. They work as a team to assist the customers, which is great. The food was outstanding, fresh and delicious. I highly recommend.
Love the brunch.
Such amazing food and drinks. I got the crab cake benedict and it tasted very good, the corn tamale cakes were a nice touch.
The food was excellent as usual. The prime rib, salmon, and ahi tuna salad were perfectly prepared. The live jazz in the background nicely sets the scene.
Very good food. Nice place --would go there again.
We have been to the Sanford Grill before and enjoyed our time and evening.
Friday night was definitely not a good experience. The food and service were very good but the noise level was so loud it was almost impossible to hear each other. One of our party is hard of hearing and he wasn't able to follow the conversation at all. Our server had to lean in to be heard and agreed that the noise was very loud.
We did like the food but due to the noise, it is doubtful that we will return especially for dinner.
Lunch with my grandson.
Perfect cozy place to meet with friends and coworkers.
We always enjoy your lunch at Stanford Grill. The atmosphere and ambiance is perfect. It’s a semi-formal environment that has a relaxed feel. The menu offers a variety of options and an extensive drink menu. You can always expect a great experience here.
The food was delicious and the portions were large!
Chose this restaurant for a business dinner with a large group, our first time there. Everything was so awesome, the food, the service, the bar, the host stand personnel, that we took our group back the next night for an impromptu cocktail reception at the bar. Which they also handled beautifully. We will definitely be back.
Great service! Awesome food. Michael took great care of us
Reservation asked to be near the fireplace if possible, since we were celebrating a big birthday. Got small table right next to kitchen, 4 of us squeezed in. Filet was charred black, no chocolate desserts without nuts, and no glazed carrots anymore on menu. And no mention of bday. Will not return.
Salmon was over cooked , steak was fine. Mashed potatoes were good but portion was small. Green beans were rubbery. Rolls were tasty , honey flavored ,but were not offered. Had to ask for them and it took a long while to get . Server was inattentive. Had to ask her what the specials were Were seated at a table near the windows and it was very cold. There were lots of empty booths which remained so during entire meal , don’t know why we were t offered one. Not up to the usual high standard we expect from this restaurant . Disappointing !
My dish was not tasty at all. Other than that the service was good.
