When we arrived there was a 40 minute wait for those without a reservation. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. The service was excellent and the food delicious!
Everything was great as usual
As always, the experience at Stanford Grill was amazing. The staff always goes above and beyond to ensure we have a wonderful time. I ordered the grilled swordfish special and it was out of this world. I recommend this place to everyone I know.
Our food came out too fast. We barely had a chance to take a sip of our drinks. It made us feel rushed. At first, we thought it was coming to the wrong table because it was delivered less than 8 minutes after ordering, but it was our food. Most of the food was good. 1 our of 4 dishes were not correct.
I had a wonderful time at the Stanford Grill. The ambiance was very nice. The menu is very similar to Copper Canyon's, but the Stanford Grill has live Jazz! The restaurant has plently of tables. The food was perfectly cooked. And the dessert (Uprising and Bread Pudding) was absolutely AMAZING! I love the teamwork of the staff. I look forward to returning soon.
On this night, food and service was not up to their usual five star rating.
The food was execelant. The ambiance a little but still very good.
Great service. Our meals were prepared well and very delicious. They accommodated our kids and that particular night they had 5 menu items to choose from. I had the Danish ribs which were very tender and very unique flavored (I loved them). I would wholeheartedly recommend this place. Go, if you have a nice occasion.
The one suggestion I would make to the restaurant is that there should be a greater wow factor in the entree offerings. To me, these appear to be rather standard dishes made with higher quality ingredients. Instead of getting a better version of some common dish at Stanford Grill, how about also offering a few entrees which you cannot get elsewhere and which further highlight the skill and creativity of the kitchen? The only reason I went with the ribs is because it was one of the two specialties, not that I had a hankering for ribs.
Consistently excellent service with great food and ambience. We spent a lazy Saturday afternoon enjoying the Stanford Burger and fries while enjoying the scenery and background jazz music.
The highs were the great food and service!
Excellent service and food. Friendly atmosphere. Reasonably priced.
Enjoyed our dinner and drinks. Went with the waiter’s recommendations and was not disappointed. Liked live music. Only negative was the acoustics. Very loud, I would not say energetic.
Ask for Watson. He’s an outstanding waiter. The food was amazing. Everything was really perfect!
waiter made the evening very enjoyable. Delightful evening, good food, great company, really fun celebration of our birthday month. will come again.
My husband had the Cod special with broccoli and Tabbouleh. The Cod is absolutely amazing & delicious. Totally a must have. We are sorry they took it off the menu and only make it an occasional special. It came with their delicious mashed potatoes but my husband substituted the tabbouleh which he loves even more.
Only issue noise level is high especialli if you are seated by the bar but only because people ate enjoying tge food and service. You leave with a smile.
Celebrating a birthday
Always a nice time. This was the first time we took our children (college and high school) they really enjoyed the outing to a nice place.
It was my moms birthday, the staff were very attentive to us and even put candles in our desserts when they overheard it was her bday!!
We celebrated a coworkers birthday and we had a wonderful time! Everything was spot on!
We love the Stanford Grill! Food is always consistently great, as is the service. We were seated near a birthday party with a lot of kids, however, which made the noise level shoot ip. Otherwise, a very enjoyable meal.
Love this place! The food and service is amazing! I will come back again!
if they could reduce the noise level it would get five stars.
Awesome wait staff, Rachel K. was amazing!
Food and service were very good. We felt rushed. Courses were brought out on top of each other.
As always the food was excellent.
They served us a dessert with pulverized/powdered nuts in the crust that just looked like graham cracker and didn’t tell us (didn’t show us dessert menu just listed options) we shared with our toddler next day- who has a serious nut allergy. After a serious scare he is ok thankfully! I called management to ask them to disclose this info and prevent future risk to others they were unapologetic and defensive. Lost my business for sure. Not cool.
We had a really great meal here, excellent atmosphere and service as well!
Stanford Grill appears to be the same menu as Copper Canyon Grill. The house salad and rotisserie chicken entree are my favorites.
The food, service and atmosphere were great. The drinks were good as well. The waiter was awesome. We brought my 7 and 3 year olds with us. He made sure our food came out quickly and gave the kids theirs first. He advised on food and deserts when we asked. All around great experience. We plan to recommend the restaurant and to go back.
Enjoyed 4th July meal. Had the rainbow trout and steak salad and bot were great. Shared the bread pudding for dessert. All were great. The bread pudding is definitely a dish for 2,
This place is consistently good with a solid service team. The only complaint I ever have is noise level and that has more to do with the patrons than the restaurant.
Consistently very good. Wish I could remember our servers name. She was a doll and very attentive. See you again soon!
Love the scenery atmosphere, prices are great. My husband and i visit make monthly visits to the standford grill.
The food never ceases to impress me! I got the rotisserie chicken salad and my gf got the steak sandwich. Both were delicious. They brought her a complimentary dessert for her birthday and she got to choose. She chose the chocolate one and it was so very good. And it was huge. We couldn’t finish it so she took a doggie bag.
The Stanford Grille is an enjoyable restaurant and we can’t wait to go back next time.
Food was very good. Had French dip!
Great restaurant for a special occasion that isn’t too formal. Their fall of the bone rack of ribs is on point.
Food was ok. Noise level is horrible. We were at a table in the rear of the restaurant and we still had to practically scream to speak to our friends. Also, there were long periods of time when we just sat there- I.e. waiting for our bill, waiting for the cappuccino ( I know our waitress had to make them herself which is a waste of time for her since she is now not waiting on customers). Also, my friend had the scallop special - 5 scallops the size of a quarter for $34! Really? The price of scallops is $14.99 a pound and of course I understand the need to markup the price for profit but really they looked ridiculous on the plate.
Stanford Grill is one of our favorites in Columbia, offering excellent food, tasty wines and great live jazz playing in the background. The signature rotisserie rosemary chicken with garlic mashed potatoes is fantastic, as well as their various fish dishes. I highly recommend Stanford Grill for any occasion!
I won't go there for lunch as the menu does not have a good variety of options. According to the website there is a greater option for lunch. However, the had a great flavor but the portion to price size I felt was a bite pricey.
