The noise level was deafening on a Sunday at 6:30 - we couldn't hold a conversation across the table and actually had to text each other. My NY Strip Steak was mediocre - not as tender as I would expect for the price, and seriously under-seasoned. The Bacon Mac-n-Cheese side was very tasty, though. My dining companions had better entrees - the Danish Barbeque Pork Ribs were melt-in-your-mouth, as promised, the Rattlesnake Pasta was yummy, the Seared Ahi Tuna Salad was not bad.

Floors were dangerously wet and slippery. Had to wait 20 minutes to be seated with reservation. Party of 6 was crammed into a 4 person booth. They rushed us to order then tried to set out our dinner while we were still eating appetizers.

Very rushed Meal. Very cramped seating. Very poor coordInation among the serving team.

Food was good, service was just okay. We went to celebrate a birthday and that was indicated when making reservations through Open Table. I didn’t think I had to mention it to the server especially since the birthday person was right next to me. What type of surprise would it have been if I told the server? Well, after the bill was paid I took her to another restaraubt for cake and drinks. If you are going for a special occasion please make sure your server is not oblivious!!!

I had heard great things about the Grill and I was not disappointed. Shareka (i hope i spelled her name correctly) was so attentive as our server. She checked on us constantly and made such convincing recommendations it was hard not to agree to her choices. My girlfriends and I truly enjoyed the experience.

The food is always good, the jazz delightful, and the staff helpful. We had two specials that were excellent, a smoked salmon (but not lox) appetizer and scallops with cauliflower couscous for a main.

We came to celebrate a co-worker leaving our company, we had an excellent time, only thing was our table was seated next to the fireplace so it got a little to warm but that is a minor thing. I have come here many times and the food and drinks are always great. I'm never disappointed.

Another great experience at Stanford! The service was excellent--the waiter even managed to make the Bravo Salad for two of us, which seems to have disappeared from the menu (bring it back, SG!). Really great time.

Love this restaurant. Food is delicious. My one and only criticism is that it’s too loud. The acoustics are such that the jazz music makes conversation difficult. People were talking louder to compensate. We had a difficult time hearing each other.

I’ve been here a couple of times and wanted to bring my mother here for Mother’s Day. She absolutely loved it. The sound of nice jazz music playing was beautiful. Our waiter knew the menu very well and check in us frequently. Our appetizers and entrees was brought out hot and fast. I just absolutely love this restaurant. My mother can’t wait to come back. Oh! I almost forgot, the desserts was amazing!

Food and service were very good. Noise level was unacceptable. The waiter had to literally shout out the special menu items and we could not conduct normal table conversation. Disapointing.

It was Mother’s Day. We were seated immediately. The hostess was courteous and accommodating. The server was knowledgeable, patient and professional. We waited for approximately 45-50 minutes for our food. It was hot and good. The pancakes and French toast were very good. I strongly recommended to the server and the manager that all ingredients should be listed on the menu. I ordered a goat cheese and tomato omelette. The tomatoes were sautéed in a vinergarette sauce. That was not listed on the menu. I did not care for that combination. The flash fried breakfast potatoes were bland and over cooked. In spite of these mishaps, the Mother’s Day brunch was a success. We will return. The manager was courteous and accommodating. Thank you for taking the time to make sure we were pleased.

We came here for Mother's Day brunch. The food was solid as usual and the service was good. There was a stretch of time at the end where we couldn't track down our waiter but overall he was fairly attentive. Overall, no real complaints. They do a nice job for special occasions (we also came here for Easter). It's one of the nicer restaurants in Columbia.

We sat on the patio. There was a little noise from traffic and airplanes but we were still able to carry on a conversation. Unlike inside where the noise level makes it necessary to shout to be heard.

Food is always delicious. Service was great. Wine list was OK - they seemed to not have the special "Captain's List" any more. We were seated as soon as we entered. We had reserved and indicated a "birthday", and our server noted that appropriately. She offered a desert, but we were simply too full - but that was a very nice gesture.
