The deep & comfortable booths allowed us to conduct a business interview w/o concern of others hearing us & vice versa. Everyone enjoyed their meals, altho' two of us thought our food was over-salted by a bit. Fabulous cornbread!

Service this time was extremely poor. Our drink didn't come for so long, that the appetizer was halfway finished before we got the cocktails. Wait staff seemed overwhelmed, not sure if there weren't enough of them or there was another problem. The hostess never wrote down that we showed up for our reservation and Open Table originally wrote me that we were a "no show". Fortunately, Open Table straightened it out with the restaurant.

Great food and service (as always!), and incredibly accommodating. I brought my parents there for their birthdays, and I was able to bring a cake beforehand for them to refrigerate and bring out at the end of our meal. Will happily come back!

My friend and I dined here for brunch. I ordered the chicken and waffles; my friend had the French toast which was a bit thick. The highlight was our server, Jerry. He was engaging, polite, attentive and comical. We will return

The French toast with pear and fruit, had no pear taste at all and there were maybe 5 berries on the plate total, REALLY! . The restaurant was that busy when we got there at 11:00. 2 of the 5 orders were wrong and one of the 2 had to be fixed twice. Really not what we were hoping for?

When Stanford Grill opened, we loved it. The past few visits, the quality and service have declined. At least 3 of the 5 past visits, my steak was overdone. I asked for med rare, and it always comes out med well. I generally ask for the kitchen to remake it, but this time, I was so fed up with the same experience, we decided that we will not return.

Away from the fray with great American style food. She had the crispy cod sandwich ("awesome!!"). I had the chopped garden salad--really amazing. Each meal with a twist that makes the food stand out from the rest: the bun on the sandwich, fresh fish that stayed crispy, green beens, asparagus, dates, beets, crispy lettuces and more in the unusual salad. Best meal we've had there!

I love eating at Stanford Grill. I don’t understand why they can’t get the heat to work better in the winter. Every time I eat there this winter, I’ve been forced to eat with my coat or scarf on. Some sections of the restaurant are even colder than others.
