We had a very delicious dinner but was not as thrilled about our server. He rarely checked on us, forgot to bring us our wine glasses and had to ask someone else to bring them, and didn’t offer to pour our wine.

The three of us enjoyed our meals of tasty fish and yummy steak. Unfortunately, there was no time for dessert. Which made me sad! All in all, it was a nice evening with delicious food.

Dining at Stanford Grill, Columbia MD, is always a pleasurable experience that does not disappoint. Although the current menu has been downsized, the restaurant maintains its signature dishes and favorite desserts (bread pudding, key lime pie). The food presentation is consistent, flavorful and well-prepared. The rotisserie chicken is somewhat saltier and less crispy than preferred but tasty, nonetheless. The service and ambiance is warm and welcoming, as always. Great restaurant for any occasion.

Just felt rushed. I wasn’t finished my delicious salad when they brought out the entree and they wanted to take my salad away. I had to hold my plate and finish my salad because there was no room on the table.
I felt rushed.
I like to relax and enjoy my food, actually taste it.

We came here to celebrate my moms birthday on a Friday night. There were several birthdays that evening and nothing “special” about our service (no candle or singing or free dessert). The food was pretty good and bar service was just okay. For the amount you’re paying I expected a little higher level of seating (they had a party of 6 at a round table with wicker chairs, which were not very comfortable). Ultimately the dinner was good but ambiance & bar service needs improvement.

Nice place for lunch or dinner. Restaurant is very clean and the wait staff were quite friendly. The menu is not extensive, but there is likely something there for every diet.

Fish and chips were delicious. Incredibly fantastic cod. I just wish the Old Bay steak fries had more Old Bay on them. I had forgotten that in the past I asked for extra Old Bay. The Fiesta Eggrolls were huge. Great for an appetizer to share but definitely more than a meal for one person. The BEST Key Lime pie anywhere!

Good but not great experience. Order salad without avocado, came with. Getting the servers attention to correct the issue was a small delay but it was corrected.

Its getting tired. The menu never changes. The portions are too big. The salad choices are uninspired. This started out as a clear copy of Hillstone's Rutherford Grill. It currently pales in comparison. The vibe and the luster is lost. Get it back.
