The food is always excellent at Stanford Grill. We have been dining there for years and our only complaint is that the menu seems very stagnant. More rotations on the menu would be great!

Our waiter, I believe you spell his name Farrad, was very disrespectful to all of us at my table. It seems as though we were a bothered him when asking for items and our to go order. After paying, he came back and asked if we needed change, without change in his hands just assuming that was the amount we were going to tip. As I will return in the future I will make sure that he is not my waiter, very disrespectful and unprofessional.

It was a much greater experience than last time where the service was slow and almost seemed deliberate. A perfect event and dinner this time around. The patio remains an excellent place to have an outdoor, heated area, and away from the enclosed inside eating tables. The food and selection is excellent, good choice of drinks, too. Perfect service (KC)! I had the superb Wood-Fired Rotisserie Chicken; and both my spouse and daughter noted that their Grilled Rainbow Trout, Rattlesnake Pasta, were also remarkable. I had the Caesar Salad for a side and their dressing had a unique, distinct, and very flavorful taste to it - quite appetizing. Going back.

We were the last seating of the night. When our food came out they forgot several of our sides and a sauce that was supposed to be on our steak. When we realized it and told the waitress 5 minutes later she went back to the kitchen - but the kitchen was closed. So they never gave us those items. They did however discount some of our meal, so that was good. Food was very good.

The rotisserie chicken was overcooked. The service (our server Susanah) forgot wine that was ordered and attention was hard to get. Wasn't that busy, so no excuse.

The ambience was great (inside the restaurant). Seemed very clean and well taken care of. My food (crab cakes) were delicious.....however, it listed them as 1/2 pound. Was nowhere near a half pound of crab.

Martini's were WAY too strong. Ordered a Pineapple Martini and all you could taste was the Vodka. Wasn't made correctly at all. Had to order extra pineapple juice on the side to mix it better.

This review may sound like I'm nit picking.....however, for the price they charge for food and drinks, I believe I have every right to review what my experience was. Hopefully for those reading this who go to this restaurant, I hope your experience is a much better experience than mine.

Standford is always a solid and outstanding choice for any occasion. Their menu has great selections and the atmosphere is warm, friendly, fun, and professional. We typically bring business customers here as there is never any doubt that they will be impressed by the venue, staff, delicious food, menu and of course the drinks. Jeffery is by far one of the most charismatic bartenders that you will ever have the pleasure of being served by - not to mention the on-point cocktails and service.

The live Jazz in the evenings is also a special treat and elevates the experience.

My wife’s prime rib came out much too rare; she sent it back, and it was replaced rather quickly.
While my ribs and French fries were delicious, they would have been terrific if they had been warm.

Everything about my experience was amazing! Our server fahab (I’m not sure if that is how it is spelt or not) was great! Our food came out super quick, which I was super happy about as I was starving coming in!. My boyfriend and I got calamari and the cornbread to start with which was amazing and each got the filet for dinner and it was delicious. One of the best restaurants in the area for sure! Highly recommended 10/10!!

We really enjoyed the Stanford Grill; service was stellar, food was good, perhaps a bit pricey and small on the steak portions (but tasty), and accoutrements (vegetables, etc.) were great, so will be back, and would recommend to others.

My husband and I took our young-adult children for an after Christmas dinner. Our server, Hannah, was great! Very attentive! We had calamari as an app...delicious. The girls both had steak salads which were large and steak cooked to order. My husband and son had the crab cakes, also yummy. I had the trout with mashed potatoes and sautéed spinach. OMG! It was sooo good! Fish cooked perfectly with a slight Smokey flavor. Mashed potatoes and spinach were fantastic! Dessert: bread pudding, key lime pie and mango sorbet. The desserts are HUGE...plenty big for sharing. The Mango sorbet was terrific...it was really refreshing and not too sweet. All in all, I can’t rave about it enough. Go...forth and eat!
