My friend and I ordered the rotisserie chicken very dry very peppery. Everything we asked to replace it with they said it was peppery. We ate baked potato and broccoli for dinner.
Our husbands got the chicken salad which they did like. They were accommodating but there was nothing to eat. Will not return!!

There was a private party at the bar they were a little loud. But that meant they were enjoying themselves. I might even go back for happy hour. So we asked to be moved away from bar. Staff quickly moved us. Food came out fast, was good and wait staff was exceptional. We will be back.

Waiter was new and slow as expected. He was very nice and shared that he was new. The impossible burger was good but not as good as the previous veggie burger especially for the cost. It took awhile for our order to come out. I’m assuming that there was a turnover in staff all around.

The food was outstanding and plentiful portions. Our waitress was attentive but sometimes what we ordered from other staff didn't quite make it. But if we notified our waitress she was sure it was tended to quickly. The menu had a nice selection but it was a bit expensive. Drinks were delicious handcrafted and high quality as well

Stanford Kitchen is my ideal restaurant. Great food, good selection, excellent service, and a nice environment. All four in my party had delicious meals including the meatloaf and the pot pie. Not to be missed.

What a beautiful space...very New York looking. White tablecloths gives it an upscale vibe. Food is outstanding, beautifully presented and arrived in no time. Great value for the moderate prices. Plenty of very polite wait staff. It's my new favorite place... I even joined their "frequent flyer" club.

I reserved a table for 3 at Stanford Kitchen for my brother's birthday. It was a fantastic experience. The staff was warm and welcoming when we first got there. They made us feel comfortable while we waited and took pictures in the picturesque outside dining area. The food was excellent! Highly recommend the Chicken Pot Pie, Caesar Salad, Rotisserie Chicken, collard greens, bacon mac and cheese, and the Sugar Rolls!

So customizable - made a plain salad for me no problem. Best spinach dip, they bring down the temp of the red wine - soooooo good- trout is dish. The best service. Reliably wonderful every time.

Everyone you encounter at the Stanford Kitchen is very friendly from the bartenders to the servers. The ambiance is nice and the location is good with ample parking. The problem is the food is expensive and mediocre at best. It's too bad because there are not a lot of options for restaurants of this caliber. If you do go, stick with the burger.

A wonderful place to get together with a friend for lunch and "girl talk". Servers are great. Food is great and reasonable. Just a great place to unwind and relax before going back to work.My new favorite place for dining.

Food and service were superb! We enjoyed the prime rib, filet mignon, chicken pot pie, salmon, and rotisserie chicken—every dish was prepared and presented perfectly. Definitely one of our favorite restaurants!

Server brought soup and entree together. When asked took entree back to keep warm. Soup was luke warm and entree was brought back cold. I would expect better service in a restaurant of this type.

Our group of 6 was very pleased with our food. The only disappointment was the bread pudding. It was very thick and not buttery. We've ordered the bread pudding in the past at your sister restaurant, Cooper Canyon, however the same desert at Stanford Kitchen was not good.

The salmon at Stanford Kitchen was the same quality and wonderful taste as it is at Cooper Canyon.

For a special evening with friends....we had a drink in the bar, then moved to a spacious, semicircular booth. Great service, delicious mushroom meatloaf, rotisserie chicken, and chicken pot pie. We enjoyed every bite, plus quickly disappearing rolls, and lovely dessert. We will return!

We enjoyed our favorite light dinner...the French Dip and Shoestring French Fries. It would be nice if Cole Slaw would be included at dinner since there is a price increase over the lunch price. Service, as always, was great. Will be back again soon!

My previous experience with Stanford Kitchen was not perfect and I stated that in my review. So I was very pleasantly surprised and impressed when the GM reached out personally and made it right. I returned to Stanford Kitchen for lunch and the food, service and experience was first rate.

Often people are motivated to be review faults, , so when the restaurant goes above and beyond, it is just as important to report that.

We have eaten at both Stanford Grill sister locations in Rockville and Columbia dozens of times and absolutely love them. This was our first time at Stanford Kitchen. It is supposed to be a “light” version of the Grill concept. A big but is the prices are the same, but the service and food quality do not match up.

Grills use team service concept, Kitchen doesn’t and we suffered through long waits for drinks and each course. My steak was ordered medium rare. Came out raw. Sent back to kitchen and it came back rare. Sent it back again and it was finally medium rare. Meanwhile my sides and wife’s food grew cold.

Bought it to the managers attention and while she apologized, as a Woodfire Club member I felt she should have offered deserts on the house. Last complaint is Grill will box your leftovers for you. Kitchen didn’t do that and when my wife asked for the server to box, he said they are instructed not to do it. Why?
