We have never liked the TEAM server system, not attentive. Plus the servers need more training on ALL food and beverage options. The restaurant itself and food are always excellent. Issues always are addressed by managers. We will keep coming back!

Service was quite good, except that main course arrived about a minute after the appetizer. The ribeye was a little overcooked (medium-rare rather than rare).

Our waiter Jim ( I think- blonde tall waiter at the bar) created such a fun evening for us from the moment we sat down he set the mood 😊 the wine choices and food choices were fantastic! We had the cod which was tender and delicious with the Sauvignon blanc frenzy he suggested! We had a lot of fun 🤩 thanks !

Made reservations for Sunday 3/21 with full intentions to have brunch.
After being seated found out that they were not serving a Brunch Menu.
Very disappointed.

We sat outside, music was BLARING from speakers and though they claimed to turn it down, it was no better. Three attempts to get a straw. Meal took a long time and was wrong, forever to get it right. Manager dismissive and not convincing. Used to love this place, never going back. Ever.

As Stanford Grill re-opens during the pandemic, they have reduced the menu, so some favorites may not be available like the deviled eggs and rice pilaf. The remaining items are very good and service was excellent.

Elegant atmosphere within an office complex, Stanford Grill is a gem. Plenty of dedicated parking underground, free. The lobby and restrooms are impeccable, the staff friendly. Food ranges from classics like steak or meatloaf to rotisserie chicken salad or sushi. Drinks include Stella on tap, craft cocktails from local recipes. Staff like Eli and Erick make coming here welcoming, sincere, and appealing... Getting to know your customers is a lost art. We drive 30 min each way just to make it here and it's well worth it!
