Our table was perfect--a booth near the fireplace. The service was great and the food was amazing. My husband loved his grilled trout. The French dip, crispy chicken sandwich, and chicken pot pie were also very good. My only complaint would be the noise level, as the restaurant was packed at lunch time.
Food was great, wait staff was great, wine was great!
Excellent as always. Tried the prime rib this time - perfect and had enough to take home for another meal. Server Hannah was wonderful.
Great restaurant. Great food. Allie did a great job catering to all of our special requests and changes to what was on the menu. Blueberry pancakes are huge. They covered the dinner plate besides being delicious.
We asked to move since dad couldn’t hear over musicians. They were great and accommodated us
Wonderful food, wonderful service. 100000% suggest.
My last review of Stanford Grill was only 3 stars, due to the inattentive staff and extreme noise level. We came back the following Saturday and were happy to have the real Stanford experience. The meal was excellent, done perfectly. The wait staff were excellent as well, or drinks never were left unfilled, and plates were cleared quickly. We are happy to say that the music was at a lower level, we could have a conversation without yelling. We could even ear our waiter, Josh, clearly. It was a very pleasant experience
Stanford Grill is excellent all around. The service was superb from the front desk to walking back out the door. The ambiance was beautiful and the food was delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.
Eh. went with a group of friends. There were 9 of us and we had a reservation, and we still had to wait in the lobby area right by the door for 15 minutes while they got ready for us. The server stood at the end of the table while taking our orders as opposed to coming over to us to take them, so we felt like we had to scream our orders to her because it was noisy there anyway. They messed up three of the orders and seemed very confused as to who ordered what. At the end of the night, we had to split the check on our own and it was just a hassle. The food was okay. I got a burger that was fairly dry, and I wasnt happy with my overall experience. I just thought the service was very lacking.
Always wonderful to escape the cold and smell and see a roaring fireplace! Love, love, love always feeling so cozy and spoiled.
Great atmosphere and service
Count on a great meal
Always enjoy Stanford Grill. We go to the Rockville location. Food is consistent. Bar has nice jazz duet (keyboards and base). I wish you could hear them from the rest of the restaurant.
Great food, service and overall experience!
Dinning here is always a great experience! As usual, the service was great. I look forward to a return visit soon.
Amazing fantastic place! I'm never disappointed there.
First time really enjoyed it. Will be returning very soon
Fish was under cooked. Bill was over charged with things we didn’t order. We got it corrected but, just to have these issues did annoy me. This is one of our favorite places so we will return
I've been to Stanford Grill in Columbia many times over the years, in the past I would have given them a solid 5 stars. If tonight had been my first visit I wouldn't come back. The food is excellent, done perfectly, the wine list is solid. The service was adequate, but definitely not nearly as sharp as it has been. Our drinks weren't refilled immediately, plates were left on our table for an extended time, definitely not what I expected. I've never seen that happen before. The breaking point for us was the noise level, it was insane. The live music was way too loud, we couldn't hear ourselves think with the noise. Because the music was so loud people were talking a lot louder, this created a very chaotic atmosphere. We've been in the restaurant when live music was being played, but it was never this loud. It detracted from the food, our ears were ringing afterwards. We'll be back, but if it's a repeat performance it will be our last.
Amazing food, just as amazing as the service. Our waitress Sarah was incredible attentive and so informative about everything on the menu. Our food was delicious! The portion sizes are huge which is great if you love leftovers. Desserts are definitely a shareable size. An overall great experience.
Was very impressed with ambiance. And the food exceeded my expectations !
This was a great experience. The ambiance, the drinks, and the food was amazing. Will definitely be back!
Hats off to Andrew our waiter, he was outstanding!
Delicious food, excellent service made my mother's birthday a success. Thanks Hannah!
Great appetizers! Calamari was excellent.
We've been to Stanford Grill on numerous occasions. It has always been delicious with great service. We have moved away from MD but usually stop in on our way through. This time the service was very good but we were very disappointed with the food. The Calamari was tough and smelled very fishy. My son had the New York Strip and it was tough as if it had been frozen and was tasteless for $36. The Rattlesnake pasta was very good but I had numerous (5-6) pieces of gristle I had to remove from my mouth. Yes, of course this can happen with chicken but not numerous pieces. We did not have dessert. We were very disappointed $120 later and did not feel we got quality food for the prices we paid.
Food was delicious, as usual. Our server, Brandi, was excellent - very attentive and accommodating.
Really lovely atmosphere. Cozy fireplace, lots of booths. When we came in for an early lunch, we all remarked that the jazz music that was playing was very loud. We requested it be lowered, and it was immediately.
Food was very nice. I had the salad topped with their rotisserie chicken, my friend had the chicken pot pie, and my other friend had the French dip. All were very generous portions, and perfectly prepared. I’ll definitely go back.
Wonderful experience! Our server, , Sarah, was beyond amazing. She treated us like royalty. Will definitely return soon.
It was our Anniversary and the restaurant we had our first date had closed. I had been here for a party and a girls night out. The food was good Salmon and Crab cake. The crab cake was mostly lump how ever it was not quite a Maryland crab cake tasty though. Our server Sarah H was outstanding. She and the ambiance made the 5 th star
Solid dining experience, service was a little distracted, but okay
Stopped by on New Year's Day for breakfast - mistakenly thinking that they would do a brunch or serve breakfast on this holiday. But they didn't. I think they missed an opportunity here. It was too bad because it was our 29th anniversary. The server even apologized because apparently others were disappointed as well. I don't think we will be back. I should have done a little more research before venturing out. I guess that's why the place was empty at 11. a.m. Get it right next year.
We always have a wonderful time when we visit Stanford.
Overall we were pleased with the food. The one exception would be the prime rib which was fatty and grissled and a real disappointment. We have been here many times and this gave us cause for concern about returning.
NYE...We were not impressed with the service. We had an 8:15 reservation and our server rushed us the entire time. Food was ok, nothing to write home about. Husband had ribs, I had crab cakes.
My husband said his Manhattan drink may be the worst drink he had in a while.
Great service great food
The restaurant is extremely loud, and the portions are ridiculously huge. My salad could have fed 4 people, and our dessert was 1/4 of a cheesecake. I’m not into food waste, so that’s a problem for me. The prices are too high for a place where I can see televisions while I’m eating.
All that said, service is attentive, and the food is good. This is a good place to go with kids, not a romantic dinner. Don’t bother dressing up, other patrons will be in jeans and athletic shoes.
Great service nice bar attenders great food
Best French Dip Sandwich I have ever had. It was a nice restaurant.
