Stanford Grill is solidly dependable. The service, as with most places, varies from server to server, but the food comes out on-time, sometimes even quickly. A tip: If you are ordering a starter course before the entree, you might want to wait to order the second round after the first. They can bring the food out quickly. There is nice, outdoor heated seating available as well. Convenient and free parking in the garage below. The bar is nice as well.

Stanford Grill rocks! Crab cakes fantastic, delicious mashed potatoes subbed for french fries, and cole slaw was wonderful; my friend had the prime rib with asparagus and mashed potatoes. An absolutely fantastic experience all around; service was attentive and friendly. Everything about the experience will keep us coming back for more. Candlelight atmosphere topped it off nicely. Will be back soon! :-D *

The Stanford Grill has been excellent each time we've eaten there. We've dined there, both indoors and outdoors, at least a half dozen times over the last two years. It is our favorite date night dinner spot in Rockville.

We love Stanford Grill. We all opted for either the Rotisserie Chicken or Club salads, plus drinks. The Southwest Bleu Cheese dressing is the best. Milton, our server, was great. He got all the orders right (some modifications were made) and kept our drinks filled.

Outstanding food with outstanding service. Two of us ordered two entrees to share and to our surprise, the salad and burger had been split in 2 plates each in advance for us. It’s little touches like this that make a place special. Great wine at decent prices by the bottle (better than by the glass). The spinach dip is always a must. Tables are spaced out in a way to make you feel safe.

Great food. The chicken, steak and pasta we ordered were very tasty. The staff serving us, Marcus I believe, was very attentive and could anticipate our needs ahead of time. Good job. One of my favorite restaurants, must have been there like 6 times in the past 1.5 years.

We cannot provide a review because the restaurant was closed and they did not have the courtesy to cancel the reservation (which was made through Open Table). We arrived and met with guests to celebrate a birthday, but the restaurant closed. I am confused as to why I am getting emails now from Open Table stating our reservation was confirmed and would like me to provide a rating.

Excellent service and very good food. Expensive, but not so bad considering the high quality. Perfect for a rare date with my wife. Not loud despite the large seating capacity and they keep the lights low. Lots of outdoor seating if weather permits.

The food was excellent! I highly recommend the bread pudding and cheesecake. It was a very romantic ambiance and although it was in the louder side the partitions between the booths dulled it. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and will be back.

This Christmas Eve dinner was quite a surprise. Our reservations were cancelled at another restaurant due to Covid. Last minute we decided to book Stanford Grill (a town favorite) and we’re able to get a table. From the second we sat down, everything was perfect. Daniel, our server (and manager), made every second we were there an experience. From the menu to specials to wine, he was knowledgeable in every field. If you’ve read this far, go to Stanford Grill, ask for Daniel. You will not be disappointed.

We had a wonderful server named Steve who was attentive but not overly so. The branzino fish was grilled and served with a lemon butter sauce was very nicely done and tasty. All our dishes were well prepared. My whiskey sour was the only down side as it was not that fresh tasting and seemed to come from a mix. Overall, we will come again as the experience was fine (just no drinks, wine instead!).

Food was magnificent and waiter was fabulous. Always know that I can visit this restaurant and get great food and great service. For Christmas eve, they were very accommodating and patient, especially for someone who could not make up their mind. Never felt rushed and was offered some really good suggestions.
