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!

My family and I had lunch at Stanford Kitchen for my daughter's birthday. Todd was our waiter and he was great! He and his trainee were very attentive and made our experience very special. He made suggestion about the menu and everyone was pleased. We will be back!

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?

Prompt seating in a very upscale yet unstuffy establishment. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful. Food was fresh, well presented and of ample serving size. We enjoyed the ambience , food and a nice wine list.
Only minor complaint was that the wonderfully fresh panko encrusted flounder needed a little more spice.
The marinated rib eye steak was fantastic!
Definitely worth a try!
