The visit was very nice. The staff was very and attentive, and we were well taken care of. we were, however, sat nearly outside so it was cold, checked in under the wrong name, and the food was not what I’ve come to expect from blueridge .

A very crowded Sunday evening dinner but SG never disappoints. Great service and food, unequaled attention to ensure your visit is memorable. Tonight they had a lovely Bassist and Piano team playing that were fantastic for ambiance.

I wish it was easier to carry on a conversation. Noise level is extremely high every time I am there. Sometimes I have to shout and always lean in across the table to hear normal conversation. The music should also be a little softer.

Overall just ok and not worth the hype. Had reservations, definitely needed them. Was unfortunately sat right next to the door which is always a downer. Service was ok, drinks were very allow despite asking multiple servers, my glass of red that I ordered before our entrees arrived came around when my husband had managed to finish his 16oz strip. The corn bread was disappointing, crumbly with a very dark bottom. My prime rib had more gristle and fat than I would have expected from a steakhouse. The sides, dessert and my husband's steak were all delicious.

The most amazing dinner experience!! The ambience was pretty romantic, but still kid-friendly. The food was excellent! I definitely recommend the fiesta egg rolls, and the bread pudding! The portion sizes are huge so you will probably have leftovers.

It was a good spot for special occasions. The music was a little loud, but there was live music. Food was good but not great. The food looked good more than it tasted good. But a nice spot

This Valentine’s day was ok but it’s been better. We sat in the back where it was a little chilly even though they had booths available. Hopefully this will be the last “ok” experience. I am at Stanford grill a lot and always recommend it to family and friends due to my superb experiences in the past.

They sat us immediately upon our arrival and their service is unrivaled. They all help each other out so anything you need happens right away. Put down the check, the next server that happens to walk by, picks it up. We’ve been twice and our server was super nice both times. Food was excellent as well as the ambience. One of our favorite restaurants. Wish all of them were run so well.

The overall experience was great!!! The only flaw was in the potatoes. They were barely warm, and the pepper seasoning was heavy-handed.

I've been to Stanford Grill MANY times and this is the first time I can say the food was not fantastic. I ordered the special, rib eye steak, which was cooked to order but was just about flavorless.

We had a 6:15 reservation on a Sat. night. The place was packed so we were very glad that we had made a reservation otherwise it would have been a long wait.

All four of our meals were outstanding and arrived to the table in a timely manner.

Our server was Eric K. and he was one of the best servers we have had anywhere. We'll request one of his tables next visit.

When this place is packed be prepared for a robust noise level.
