Perfect choice for my parents anniversary. The horse-shoe shaped booth was great for 6 of us to sit together comfortably. We all had different meals and would recommend anything on the menu, but the rainbow trout was especially delicious, the mashed potatos amazing and the chicken pot pie was outstanding. Great service, great food, great atmosphere.

A regular customer however this night was very different . The service was good however food order was incorrect twice. In addition the female, blonde server with hair shaved on sides literally stood and stared at our guest for long periods of time. Weird, yes a little. When she noticed that we noticed, so she moved to other side but continued to stare. Rude and weird but mostly made everyone uncomfortable. We decided to skip dessert and leave.

I’ve seen a decline on service. The staff seems more concerned with going home than taking care of customers.

I frequent this establishment often because I love the food. On my last visit, my guest and I were greeted by Klaire, our server. She welcomed us back and immediately asked us if we wanted to order the same drinks as our last visit. We were thoroughly impressed, especially after she told us everything we ordered during our last visit - even with the changes. Klaire provides exceptional service and made our visits even more enjoyable than normal.

First of all, the service was great! our waitress was johnny on the ball with the refills, AND left us alone mostly, as it was a first date experience.
Food was tasty and looked spectacular! i forced myself to eat all of my huge portion of Rattlesnake Pasta.
Dessert was divine! it was a monstrous piece of Key Lime Pie! it was so delicious that i surpassed my stomach capacity to polish that puppy off.
Sure, it was a pricey event, but oh so worth it!

Outdoor patio seating was nice; however, the passing traffic noises were very loud and at times hard to bear, or stressful.

This restaurant had a very nice & mature atmosphere. The ambiance was the best I’ve experienced in a while. Food was average & drinks were good. The only disappointment was that I came just for the chicken parm and they were out. I had rotisserie chicken instead and it was okay.

Overall, great first time. At times, it took our server and drinks longer than expected but it ended up being a team of them that worked together. I thought that was AWESOME. They were ALL very pleasant, professional and knowledgable about the menu..

I ordered the salmon which was good, however my daughter ordered the crispy chicken sandwich and said that the chicken patty had a fishy taste to it. She didn't like it at all. Other than that everything else was good. I would come back again.

Invited someone from out of town here for dinner, and she was impressed. It's my first time back since before COVID, and the service and food all met the almost impossibly high bar of my memory of the place. Cocktails were delicious and satisfying but pretty pricey.

Food was delicious and fresh. The portion sizes made up for the pricier dishes and were executed perfectly. Service was a tad slow in the bar area, but overall sufficient.

I have dined countless times at Stanford Grille in Columbia, and a few times at the Owings Mills location. All have been nothing short of amazing. My last experience, not so much. The food was sub-par that day. Even my wife’s favorite go-to, rattlesnake pasta wasn’t good. I tried the Parmesan chicken, which left a little to be desired. After not being pleased with our meals, we decided to not take a chance with dessert. I guess everyone is entitled to a bad day, just hate that I was so hungry and so disappointed.

First visit to the Owings Mills location.
Loved everything from greeting to departure. Such a friendly and helpful staff. Will definitely be returning.
The food was outstanding. Perfectly prepared and presented. So large portions that we took half home.
For starters we shared a huge Caesar salad and a skillet of delicious cornbread.
My mom ordered a plain hamburger and I ordered ribs.
We shared a bread pudding dessert.

Had business lunch here on a beautiful summer afternoon. We sat outside and it was a bit noisy as you're a few feet away from traffic on OM Blvd. We both had the Ahi Tuna Salad. It was phenomenal although I thought the greens were sparse. Great service, warm smile, and professionalism from a Caribbean table attendant. We had drinks, a meal, and great conversation in under an hour.
