My wife and I love going to Stanford Grill. Especially with the weather threatening rain, the underground parking made us feel secure that we wouldn't be caught in a downpour. The food and service were great, too. We both had one of the specials, a fish entree and lived up to our expectations. We have never been disappointed here and will return soon.

Celebrated a Birthday dinner at Stanford Grill, Rockville location.

Patrick was our server. He was friendly, patient, accommodating, menu and parking knowledgeable (which is valet or self park in the attached garage). We were very pleased with with his service and wouldn’t hesitate to ask for him again.

The FOOD!!! Very yummy! Cornbread skillet moist, egg rolls crisp and flavorful, cheeseburger juicy and cooked to specified order, roasted chicken incredibly seasoned to perfection, pan seared crab cake full of lumps and very good, ribs fall off the bone tender and awesome, even the fries and coleslaw seasoned well.

I must also mention, the bartender, I believe her name is Megan by which delivered a special Chocolate Martini via request for me. She was so sweet. Another person I would prefer.

I believe the manager collected our bill. She greeted us with a delightful smile and acknowledged our first visit. Fantastic.

Other servers helped keep our table clutter free which was also a great touch and often experienced at a quality restaurant.

The environment was very well kept with an upscale appeal. The bar area seemed to be most active later this day, yet the area seemed adequately sized so it didn’t appear chaotic and crowded. The atmosphere offered live music which tied into the stylish feeling of the restaurant.

So, what do I feel about this establishment? I feel it’s a stylish find with set apart service providing fresh and excellently seasoned dishes.

Excellent experience.

Our waiter was friendly and attentive. Food was, overall, good. I had one of the daily specials, grilled trout with a lemon butter sauce. Flavor was good, but trout was over cooked and dry. Also, a little bit overpriced considering the quality of the dish. Still my friends and I had a good time.

We had a great dining experience, the food was great as was our waiter. Our issue was when our party arrived as 2 groups and we were sat separately. It took us 30 min to figure it out even after checking with the front desk. When it was figured out, we had to suggest to the manager they pay for our round of drinks, they offered nothing. Their customer service could of been better.

For a Tuesday night, service was not very good. Food was excellent!!

We sat outside, and got eaten alive by mosquitoes. I recommend spraying to reduce/eliminate them as we do at our homes.

I always have good experience with Stanford. However, the service this time was not commendable. Right away I noticed that our waitstaff showed preferential treatment over another table. I would imagine the other table were repeat guests of the waitstaff. We have been to the restaurant several times and hosted parties in their private dining area. Our drinks were delayed and we had to repeat the order for a beverage. Secondly, we were told the bread appetizer had to be requested while another table was given the bread without asking and their beverages came right away. The restaurant was not full but we had to call our waitstaff to get her attention.

Our party of four was very satisfied and happy with The Stanford Grill. Our guests had not been there for dinner previously, and expressed that everything was exceedingly good, and that they were sure they woould return. Everyone ordered something different, and the entrees were good perfect;ly and enjoyed thoroughly.

My wife & I ordered two salads. Her salad came out wrong twice and the wrong dressings were brought to the table. No one seemed to check the orders before bringing the food to the table. It was not busy, so no excuse to miss such details.

We love Stanford Grill and go several times a month when we are in town. The menu has something for everyone. We appreciate the personal service from the manager, Louis who was very accommodating when our guest had an issue with the rareness of his Prime Rib. He whisked it away and reappeared in about two minutes with a new one, and it was perfect. He also sent us deserts because of the issue. He went above and beyond what we expected.

This is an upscale atmosphere with live jazz trio at dinner. Food is good, but a bit overpriced. Nice patio for outdoor dining. Parking is tricky with underground garage, but valet on Saturday night and perhaps other times.
Service was professional and friendly. Biggest complaint, food came out too soon. Had just started our salads when the main course arrived. Sent it back to have it return as requested after salads were finished. Ordered desserts and coffee, coffee came late. So, the problem was the pacing of the meal. Felt rushed.

I have had brunch at Stanford several times, always delicious! Service is very knowledgeable, friendly and attentive.
My only complaint is that the dishes always look dirty. Stanford uses a white dinner plate that shows every single fingerprint. This detracts from an otherwise pleasant meal.
