The food is always very good. We like the ambiance with the piano and bass. We had to wait to get wine and martini. Once the salads arrived everything was fine.

Stanford Grill has the best spareribs in the area. Dessert of the day was outstanding, too.
Service, as always, was exceptional.

The place is classic with a good view.
They offer a fusion of American and Asian menu which suits everyone in the party and the prices are reasonable.
Food tastes excellent and free underground parking is a plus !
Great for a party hangout !

If you are looking for an upscale, delicious dinner with great jazz music and a city vibe, look no further. The food and service are wonderful. Half price sushi on Mondays and Tuesdays are my kids favorite!

The food, service, and atmosphere are always nice. We would have liked to sit closer to the jazz group, but the restaurant was full. Next time, we will sit in the bar area so that we can enjoy the music and food.

Have never been to Stanford Grill for Sunday Brunch.
It was very nice and I loved the menu choices and the included drink.
Will definitely go back soon.

My dinner arrived 10 minutes after everyone else was served and only after my husband stopped a staff member as they walked by our table. Our waiter never checked in as as we were eating. He took our order and then disappeared. Food was good but not sure I would return.

The rotisserie chicken on my salad was cold, hard and a bit skimpy. If I am going to spend $19 on a salad it should have more than just three little strips of chicken.

It is a bad sign when 3 different employees say "Sorry about that" in the first 20 minutes of being in the restaurant. It was our first time here and we had a reservation. The hostess, however, was more focused on stapling things together than on seating us. We waited close to 10 minutes to be seated, despite there being plenty of open tables. It took a while for our server to appear and then even longer for two drinks to arrive, one being the wrong order. More time. When the server finally reappeared to take our order, one of us ordered the Brunch Sliders. Oh, sorry about that, he said, I should have told you that they weren't available. Odd that they weren't since this was early in the brunch hours and at least two of the sliders were available as full meals. Change order.

We were completely underwhelmed by our experience at this restaurant. The food was merely okay, the service was friendly but very inattentive and not well informed (he did not know what a Bellini was composed of), and the piano music was so loud for the first half of our meal that we were almost shouting at each other.

Suffice it to say, we will not ever be returning to this restaurant, especially since the much better Tower Oaks is just around the corner.

Stanford called on Feb 2 to cancel our anniversary dinner due to the super bowl. So I’m glad this first dining experience at Stanford more than made up for it.

This was very disappointing. My husband has been to Stanford Grill frequently, but only at lunch. At dinner, it was so noisy we could not hear each other, even though we were pretty far away from the piano. Three of us got our meals in a reasonable period of time, while the fourth never got a meal at all. When we inquired, it was clear that the server had never put the order in. He told us it would arrive in a couple of minutes, but it took 10 to 15 minutes, and only after we had inquired a second time. Not pleasant. My husband ordered beef short ribs, but they were so tough that he couldn’t chew them. Beef short ribs, cooked well, are notoriously tender. He sent them back, and asked how quickly he could get pork ribs. The server said 10 or 15 minutes, and my husband reminded him that we were still waiting for our fourth person’s meal. That speeded things up. I would have expected that the person whose meal was 15 minutes late would have been comped, or that we would have been offered something in terms of compensation for the disappointing service, but no. Stanford Grill is off our list, which is too bad because the location is very convenient.
