First, the extra star was for the dessert. Stanford Grill has more of an upscale "feel" but really isn't. The overall meal experience turned out fine. I was there celebrating my birthday with my husband and we arrived at the time of our reservation and were seated promptly. The ambiance was perfect: dimly lit, live background music, and the conversation... More

This was me and my husband's first visit to the Stanford Grill. The ambience was cozy and dark, which we prefer when it's just the two of us. The staff was friendly and happy to be serving first timers. The live jazz music was a nice addition and not something we had expected. We each had a glass of wine,... More

It's better than a suburban chain restaurant, but it's far from great and not worth a trip out of your way. A group of five of us went for brunch today and all had good but unspectacular dishes. The place was packed and LOUD. If you're going for atmosphere, be warned. As for the food, The pot pie was probably... More

Beware ~ if you have a reservation, you will still have to wait over a half hour for a table. The starters were just okay, nothing to rave about. We had the Fiesta Eggrolls, Artichoke Spinach dip, and soup. The Creamy Chicken Noodle soup was pretty good, my mother's comment was that it tasted similar to the Chicken Gnocchi soup... More

We had a very nice evening in this restaurant. Starting from the very friendly staff, location and the excellent food and drinks - everything was superb. Coming back again.

I had a truly remarkable dining experience at Stanford Grill. First truly one of the best Rye Old Fashions EVER! Luxardo cherry, perfect balance - thanks Rocky! Then another one followed when the Reception Rye rep happened to be buying anyone at the bar a drink of Redemption Rye. Amazing duplication of great cocktail craftsmanship. Then the crab cakes -...

The service is really great. The food was well prepared. The restaurant is dark but warm and comfortable. The live piano is a nice touch. Would definitely recommend for business meals and date night.

The food here is excellent, especially the spinach dip, which only rivals Houstons when they were here (I believe Stanford Grill is affiliated with them). The service is also great. A nice meal, but very pricey.

My family and I had a wonderful Easter brunch at this energetic and upscale restaurant. We arrived a few minutes early for our reservation and were seated within minutes. We initially decided to sit outside, but the table was in full sun (and the umbrella could not be moved), so we moved inside fairly easily. My husband loved his Crab... More

Three of us dined at Stanford Grill during a Sunday brunch. We ordered a variety of entrees. The least favorite was the Crab Scrambled Eggs with Cream Cheese and Chives. If you're hoping for chunks of crab, you'll be extremely disappointed because there were no chunks and only about 12 tiny strands,about 1/32 inch by 1/2 inch each. The cream... More
