Stanford Grill is always a classy experience. This last dining experience was to celebrate my father's 75th birthday. Due to some scheduling conflicts we had to push the reservation back to 745, just before the kitchen closed at 8pm on Sunday. Thankful our server Tim, informed us about the situation and the food was incredible as always. 👍🏿

The waiter forgot several things we asked for. The chicken on my friend’s salad was overcooked and she didn’t get enough salad. Our bills were messed up too.

Stanford Grill is a favorite of ours because of the atmosphere and food. The low lights and fireplaces make it so cozy. The food is always plentiful and delicious. The service is quick too despite being a full house most days.

Stanford Grill food & service are outstanding. We sat outside in the tent. I was expecting heaters outside in the wintertime. Despite changing seats, I remained chilly throughout dinner. Our server kindly brought me and another patron a table cloth on which to sit for slightly more warmth. Otherwise, the experience was great!

My two guest and I were very impressed with the restaurant overall. I had been there before but for my two guests, it was the first time they had been there. I was so happy that they were happy with everything. The only thing that was not the highlight of the evening was the brief fight. But it was deescalated quickly and we were able to continue to enjoy the evening.

Really wish they had live jazz back! This was the main reason we booked the reservation, but no live jazz. 😔

Ordered wine never arrived. Steak salad, rotisserie chicken salad and pineapple upside down cake were good.

Stanford Grill did not disappoint! I had the chef salad with rotisserie chicken and my friend had the salmon. We each had a glass of wine as well. We sat in a booth by the fireplace. It was lovely. Our waiter was friendly and our food came out fast. Will definitely return!

The food is consistently good at Stanford Grill. We had a few favorites (chicken pot pie and baby back ribs) as well as a few specials (grilled bronzini with lemon butter sauce and Coca Cola BBQ beef ribs) and all of it was delicious! The chicken (in the pot pie), fish, and ribs were all so flavorful and tender! I definitely want to dine there again before the specials are gone!

This is a great place to eat. The only negative is they were out of the alcohol to make one of the drinks and then the beer requested ran out.

A bit of a splurge, but excellent food in a beautiful setting with great service. The only negative is that it’s loud. Very difficult to have a conversation across the table if the restaurant is full. I appreciated the wait staff masking up.
