Rachel was our waitress, and she was outstanding! The only drawback the four of us had at Stanford Grill was that the music was too loud, and we had difficulty hearing what one another.

Great American food - savory and cooked with care. VERY large portions. 3 people could share one dessert. The wait staff is superb. The only complaint is that the music is waaaaaaaay too loud. It was hard to carry on a conversation with someone sitting across the table from me. People have to talk loudly which just adds to noise level. It was a relief to walk outside and enjoy the quiet. I keep coming back because the food is outstanding.

1. Our waitress made the visit very enjoyable. She was pleasant, yet professional; informative, yet not overbearing. (Waitress had eyeglasses, dark hair, Caucasian, around 45)

2. My suggestion : when reservations have been made in advance, seating should be better than for those patrons who just walk in. I had to ask the hostess for another booth, and she did not like that. (Young lady with long ponytail,Caucasian)

The service here was exceptional- Brandon was our server and he was very attentive and charming. The food was great- the reason I gave it 4 stars was that I thought the crab Benedict was too sweet ( especially the corn base ) and I wish it had been savory. value for money was exceptional- the brunch includes a drink and because we were celebrating a birthday they were kind enough o give us a huge chocolate desert for free that fed all 6 of us with plenty to spare.Overall I love Stanford Grill - the ambiance, live music and service alone mean that I will continue to be a repeat customer.

This past Saturday, our server was awesome (a 9 out of 10)! He checked on us frequently and knew exactly the proteins my husband would want as a bodybuilder! He was also great in recommendation for my niece to eat as well. The drinks from the bartender were on point. We had so much fun that we forgot our pre ordered banana pudding. A simple call to the restaurant that night and they happily provide an order the next day (we went to pick up of course).

Just a normal date night with the Queen of the house, had a blast and everything was great. Steak cooked to perfection, as well as my spinach and lobster mac and cheese. Her dish was great as well. We cut the night short because we decided to share cocktails and she’s a lightweight HAHA

It was a really nice place to eat. I went with family and a few friends and the food was delicious. Service was also great. When it got busy, I did notice the sound level got higher, but it wasn't so bad. Atmosphere definitely made it seem fancy but the pricing wasn't so bad compared to what it looks like inside. I would say it's like a red lobster pricing but looks like a Morton's steakhouse.

Chose to dine at Stanford Grill for an anniversary celebration. The restaurant did everything possible to make for a great experience for us. However, the noise level was just too much for us, and it ended up dampening the evening.

The food was outstanding and the ambience cozy. The glow of the fireplace helped the romantic atmosphere, but the noise level was so loud that we were unable to appreciate the live jazz trio which we were looking forward to hearing.

It’s a great place minus the noise.

I love the setting. We were there early Saturday evening. Was hoping for jazz. Got it. But I couldn’t hear my family across the table. Our fish dish was dry because it sat under a hot light a little long. $33 of just OK fish. I think our very good server was overwhelmed.
Absolutely LOVED the desert. My son and granddaughter loved the chicken pie. Wife and I were celebrating marriage year 56. Drinks were worth value. Next time maybe at 52. Quieter (but no Jazz, darn).

Absolutely FANTASTIC!!... is the best way to sum up my recent dining experience at Stanford Grill. My friend was recently married, so a few of the fellas decided to take him out to dinner to celebrate. We arrived a little ahead of our reservation time...the assistant general manager, Zahra, noticed that we were early, but quickly made us comfortable and managed to get us seated at our reserved table! Once we were seated we began ordering drinks and appetizers from our waitress Rachel. The fresh made lemonade was absolutely killer! The fiesta egg rolls were perfectly cooked, the fried calamari was crispy and succulent, and the deviled eggs were a tasty treat for the palate. As we polished off the appetizers we were pleasantly surprised as the service team reset our table and prepared for our main courses. Soon after, our entrees of crab cakes , Coca cola beef ribs, shark, and lamb shank, made their way to our table. The presentation of all the entrees being served at once was quite a salivating moment. The food was FANTASTIC!!! We were quite impressed as the attentive service from Rachel and Zahra continued throughout the meal. Overall, the experience that Zahra created for us was OUTSTANDING and UNFORGETTABLE! She made sure that the entire service team gave us a true V.I.P. experience. From the restaurant ambience to the food, this dining experience was one of the best ever, and we cannot wait to do it all over again!!
Thanks Stanford Grill!!
