Stanford Grill - Columbia
I ordered the crabcake lunch salad and the portion was tiny. Shockingly tiny. And I don't eat that much. At first I was wondering if they accidentally brought me a "kids-size" serving, but they didn't. It was "full-size", and it was bad. Actually the taste and the flavors were great--for the entire four bites of the meals. I still cannot believe that they served this meal with a straight face. I would be embarrassed if I had company over and did this to them. Not good. In the end, I was more hungry leaving the restaurant than I was when I arrived. Do not recommend.
The seating time was prompt with my reservation. The staff was friendly, courteous and attentive. Food was excellent. The wood fired chicken is delicious many herbs and spices that you taste. And the cornbread delish even with jalapenos in it not spicy at all. I will return!
NEVER a bad meal or experience.
My favorite restaurant.
The food was excellent, the service was very good, but it was a little noisy.
Stanford Grill is probably the best restaurant in Columbia. Food, service, and ambiance are spectacular. Management is on the ball, and all work together to serve patrons.
Pot pie and banana nut pancakes were tasty from brunch menu. Menu needs a little update. Doesn’t seem to have changed much in years. We were there to celebrate a birthday. Server forgot. Not busy on a Sunday morning. May have lost their “edge”.
Stanford is a go to because they are always consistent with their food and service.
Sent my prime rib back because it was only warm
New piece, piping hot replaced it
Andrew was a pleasure. The rotisserie chicken, ribs, peartini and moscato were delicious! Worth the price.
Always enjoy the Standford Grill. A reliable place to have good food and service and enjoy the company of good friends. Excellent as usual!
Always love coming here for brunch.
We were seated in the outer area and it was freezing cold, the windows are very drafty, and we were very uncomfortable. That being said the food and service were excellent and we would consider coming again just not sitting outside in the winter.
I tried the chicken pot pie this time. The broth is pretty thick. Don't get this if you don't have an appetite.
I love coming to Stanford Grill for everyone in our family’s birthday. It’s never disappoints us. Consistently great!
A very good experience my wife and I had a wonderful evening.
Great place - would definitely come back again. Crab was excellent.
A fine place, but very noisy and dark. Food was average but expensive.
Our waitress was very professional and knew the menu extremely well. Atmosphere was busy but not loud. Food was cooked perfectly with no issues on temperature.
My girlfriend and I went on Valentine's Day weekend. It was our first time eating here. Our server, Becky was great. We had the roasted chicken and pork ribs. Both plates were delicious.
Always enjoy coming to this restaurant. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is quite lovely.
Great experience 4 my wife and I
Food was excellent as well
And live jazz band were excellent
Felt rushed out at the end of our meal. Otherwise, we had a great experience.
I have been a loyal customer and would
Often suggest Standford Grill to everyone. This past experience was the straw that broke the camels back. We had to wait for our drinks and food. When the food came they got it wrong.lt was so bad that even our waiter was apologizing for the unacceptable time of service and the mess up with our food. I spoke to the manager and the number one rule in business is you never leave a customer so dissatisfied! It’s just not the same like it used to be, its fallen off!
The Stanford Grill is truly first rate, from kitchen to dining room. Although it's a special-occasion place for my husband, best friend, and me, there is a range of amazing dishes (such as their signature rotisserie chicken) that fit a more modest budget, as well as a menu variety to suit any palate. I'm also impressed with their single-source Halpern beef. The staff are friendly, courteous, and professional, and they do a great job of working as a team. I think Stanford Grill is the best restaurant in the Columbia area, and it's my first choice if I'm the one choosing!
The Valentine’s Day environment was amazing from start to finish. The check in process was easy and organized. We had great seats. The waiters were amazing. They helped us make great selections. My martini was delicious and the fiesta egg rolls are to die for. They were attentive and fast. Our dinner was great. I had the rattle snake pasta. My date had the prime rib it was tender and cooked to perfection. Overall the entire experience was five star. Great staff and the food was amazing.
Nice spot for Valentine's day dinner.
Had a great Valentine's Day dinner!
Stanford Grill is always an enjoyable experience.
The food was just eh. We went for Valentine’s Day dinner and got steaks. Even though they were cooked to the right temp, medium rare, the outside was charred so bad that it left a terrible burnt taste in the mouth it was just obvious that the grill had not been cleaned in between grilling the multitudes of steaks they were probably making. The service was great though but I’ve been to Stanford before and the food has always been completely unforgettable. Will likely not go back. Not worth the value in my opinion.
This was our first time at the Columbia Stanford Grill, we live near the Rockville location and this one has a cozier interior. If you make reservations here specify the main dining area and not the patio, there is a significant dropoff in the ambiance.
This is me and hubby’s favorite date spot. Love the live music. Our waiter Watson was Spectacular and made our night extra special. On Valentine’s Day they gave all the ladies a rose 🌹
Good food. Great service. Tayshon our service aas geeat!!
Very nice atmosphere. It was a little cold because we were seated by the window area in the back.
It was amazing. Our server Brandi treated me and my boyfriend like Kings. This place never ceases to disappoint me. From the level of service the live music everything is amazing. And that’s on Stanford grill.
The restaurant has expanded but the new section is basically law furniture. The Valentines Day seafood specials were nothing special. Basically salt and pepper seasoned halibut ($36) or mahimahi ($31). At that price I expected more such as the seafood being topped with an avocado salsa or herb crusting.
Wonderful dinner! My wife and I really enjoyed the experience.
Let’s start with my wife and I love this place. We dine here pretty often and have had nothing but good experiences to date. This Valentine’s Day early dinner, around 3:45 pm was not one of the better experiences we have had at this establishment. There were a few mishaps such as being given the lunch menu and after we decided what we wanted and began to order was told we couldn’t order from that menu anymore but now the dinner menu. No big deal right, so we were given the dinner menu and needed time to decide as the items were selected were not on the dinner menu. We were never updated with the dinner specials vice the lunch specials our waitress told us about. So when I overheard an item on the specials being communicated to other patrons I immediately said to my wife I would have ordered that if I were told about that special. I also then saw another couple who were sat after we were sat and ordered after us get the item from the lunch menu I was told I couldn’t order any longer because they were serving dinner. I mentioned this to the waiter and he apologized. I understand how things happen so I wasn’t upset. However, the manager came over and comped our meal which was nice but definitely not expected. Now for my meal, I ordered the New York Strip, medium well. It was very over cooked, but I have been taught to never send food back. So I didn’t. Not a terrible experience but definitely a bit disappointing. Hope this isn’t a trending pattern.
Rotisserie was raw. Replacement was great though. Our clothes smelled of smoke after our meal.
Server made great recommendations and she was very attentive.
Enjoyed dinner with friends. Food a was good and service was excellent.
