    It was okay. Not completely up to Stanford Grill's normal standards. Seasoning on prime rib was very salty. Cheeseburger was good. Seasonal veggies (broccoli and cauliflower mix) were a bit too crunchy.

    We like Stanford Grill. They play jazz! The food is very good but too salty for me. I asked for them to minimize the salt in my food and it was still too salty. But for most people, it is fine. I am sensitive to salt and get high blood pressure if I eat even a moderate amount of salt.

    Loved the calamari and spinach dip appetizers. We all had prime rib, very good. Service was inexperienced but otherwise we had a lovely time. On a Saturdays night the restaurant was out of the two wines we wanted to order.

    Not an extensive menu, but certainly variety. No children’s menu leads me to believe this is not necessarily a family establishment. Live music on a Thursday was a surprise. Lovely date night restaurant.

    I like the Stanford Grill. We didn't enjoy our beyond burgers this time because they were on a gluten free bun which we did not order or enjoy. Its not an inexpensive place so you do want to get what you ordered.

    We had a lovely quiet table by the fire pit and that was perfect since we were finally getting to celebrate Christmas together! Loved the Branzino fish special! My son got the Chicken pot pie and his girlfriend was thrilled with the rotisserie chicken! Demir (sp) our server was superb!! Fantastic Late lunch/early dinner!!

    We celebrated my daughter's 17th birthday. Unfortunately, 75% of my party wasn't there at the time I reserved due to them getting off of work late. Because of that, they told me that I couldn't at least sat the cake on the table. I had to wait until we were seated and they couldn't take it to the back either. That was one of the things I didn't appreciate having to sit there and wait with the cake. Other than that, the service was good and so was the food. I had the Chicken Parm and it was my first time ever ordering that out and it won't be my last.

    Unfortunately they could not get my mushroom omelet correct. At first there was only one mushroom in the entire omelet. They redid but then forgot the cheese. It was too bad because the ambiance is quite nice.

    Food was marginal. Chicken strips that my daughter got were completely tasteless. Chicken Parmesan similarly bland. The tenderloin was not worth the $40. The spinach and artichoke dip was good but strangely was served with nachos instead of bread. There was also a small bowl of salsa with the artichoke dip. Strange. The only redeeming part of the dinner was the dessert. The bread pudding and the chocolate brownie/ice cream “chocolate uprising” were both very good. Overall, the quality of food seems to have dropped dramatically and this was a very forgettable dinner. Stanford Grill used to be one of my favorite restaurants and now I doubt that I will return anytime soon.

    There is live music in the bar which can be loud. Personally I like the atmosphere. The only down side is that your server will be one of the bartenders and their attentiveness will be based on how busy they are. Something to keep in mind

    Requested a booth upon arrival and was met with a hostess who wasn’t helpful with that. We pointed out that Two booths were available which she insisted weren’t in service and one had been reserved. She really was rather short with the whole situation….she could have handled it differently. Had a nice dinner with Fabulous , attentive service from Robert P. He went out of his way to take good care of us , and he worked well with his team. He’s a fabulous addition to your team!
