Consistently excellent food and nicely presented. Service was also just right, polite and timely. Love the atmosphere here and the large comfortable booths. I have never been disappointed and the free parking is an added plus!! Will keep coming back.

I requested a both with advanced reservations. The booth was located across from the door that led to the patio which was used often, on a cold evening. It was an uncomfortably cold draft. When asked to move, not given good choices, the bar or back of restaurant where it was noisy and the atmosphere was awful. Patrons were passing by constantly, most unmasked, and one coughed without covering their mouth. I was horrified, especially during this Covid season. Furthermore, the Women’s bathroom lacked cleanliness and no toilet paper. As for the food,my entree, the chicken club salad was fried very dry, hard and lacked flavor. My guest did like the branzino entree. Overall , it was a very disappointing evening. It was not worth the money spent. I will continue to patronize Hillstone restaurant group, where I feel they serve their guests with care and excellent food. Plus, it’s very sad that the menus mimicked your direct competitor.

Our experience was very good. However, the steak frites my husband ordered was only okay--the steak was not thin as it is at Mon Ami Gabs or Le Diplomate. I would not recommend putting this item on the menu again the way it is.

The food is delicious and the service was outstanding. I was seated next to the door leading to the outside patio. It gets very cold from the waitstaff entering and exiting the door to serve people sitting outside. I would suggest requesting not being seated next to the door. It can be very uncomfortable.

Stanford’s design is large, modern, and soulless. That said- worked for lunch w/ friend staying near #270. Crab cake and fresh tuna salad were quite good. Pedestrian wines (e.g. Sav Blancs from New Zealand) overpriced, so skipped it. Wait service pleasant and efficient. Wouldn’t go out of my way to return, but overall experience pleasant.

We are fairly loyal customers. We enjoy being in the front area. The back is dark and dismal. The front bright and modern. The specials are great but I would like a bigger overall menu. Bar staff are the best.

Stanford Grille always treats you like an important guest. My sushi was made to order, with my allergies in mind. I can't say enough about our server or our meal.

Our party of four thought the food was very good. The service from our server was also very good. My only complaint is about the noise level in the restaurant. I wear hearing aids, and it was very difficult for me to hear the dinner talk at my table. And I'm sure I asked our server to repeat himself several times. Nose aside, we had a very nice evening. Glad we went.

The food and service were excellent. However, we went to Stanford Grill to celebrate a birthday. I indicated that on the online reservation and my wife called before we came to say it was a birthday dinner. However, the waitress had no clue it was a birthday and at the end of the meal brought the check. At that point my wife mentioned it was a birthday and the waitress asked which dessert we would like. The dessert came with a candle and was very good. The cost of the dessert also showed up on the bill, as, apparently, Stanford Grill does not comp a birthday dessert. Not so friendly.

Arrived first but was served last of four tables outside. Waiter forgot to put in our appetizer and didn’t tell us until they brought the food. Kept asking if it had come out. Brought our appetizer after meal was served. Never came to check on us. Complained to manager who gave us several excuses about the kitchen but never apologized. Attitude from the too down at this location.
