As always the drinks were great. Lisa, the bartender is the only reason we return. The service of the waitstaff has gone down and the food is lack luster. Outside of the awesome cocktails the experience is comparable to Red Robin or Chili's. The menu was more extensive before the pandemic and now that Maryland is fully open the menu has stayed the same. There used to be bar menu items such as sliders and flatbreads. It's just not the same.

I made reservations for Stanford Kitchen to bring a friend from college after raving to them about the service and the food at the establishment. My friend, a baltimore native, was recently elected to a political seat and I wanted to congratulate them with the amazing crab cake dinner this location serves.

However, I was totally dismayed when I went to order and was told that the crabcakes were all out and apparently have been for weeks - even though it is still a menu item. My friend was also let down as well as I had spoken great things about it. The dish is by far one of the best dishes on the menu and the reason why I decided to patronize the business. Instead I had to order another dish that I was not happy with and apologize to my friend who was also looking forward to the dish as well.

Unfortunately if it isn’t added back to the menu, I likely will have to patronize somewhere else. The customer service is always great but my food experience was a complete let down.

The service is always wonderful. Drinks were flowing and food arrived promptly. I had the Cobb salad which was huge. They were quite accommodating to my dietary restrictions and that was the first question they asked was if anyone had food allergies and what kind. My husband had the meat, which is not on the new menu, I don’t know why, and he could finish his dinner either.

Waited 30 minutes before being told there was no medium rare prime rib at 5:30 PM. Ordered hamburgers with fries and waited another 20 minutes and they were served cold. Sent back and Finally served after another 20 minutes. On reservation I noted it was anniversary but no mention made of this. We have eaten there before but this was very disappointing

I have commented before about the placement of the handicapped stall in the men’s bathroom. The proximity of the bathroom door to the door on the handicapped stall render the stall inaccessible to wheelchair customers. The stall should be at the other end of the bathroom. Then the proximity problem would be removed.

The ambiance and food at Stanford Kitchen are equally salacious. It is a relaxing, pleasant experience, overall.

This is the second time in a week I have been there. The food is very good. The service is not great. The server my first visit was in a rush and not friendly at all. I observed her with all of her tables, and she was the same with everyone. If you're not happy with your job, get another one and dont tale it out on the customers.

The second time, last night, my server was much more friendly. I saw the original server still there and still grumpy with people. My server was good, until she started cleaning up our table before we were done eating. LET US EAT!!!! It takes 45 seconds to clean a table so why are you rushing us?

I noticed this at both visits. At around 8PM they start cleaning the restaurant despite people still being there and eating. Staff vanishes so they can clean and you feel like they are going to ask you to close the lights on your way out.

The food and the service were excellent. I have consistently had a great experience here for both lunch and dinner. In winter, the black bean soup is the best bar none.

Overall service was great. However I bought my dad for his Birthday and Father's Day and I chose Stanford Kitchen specifically for the crabcakes which they were not serving. In addition my mother was looking forward to the Prime Rib which also was not being served. If they were not serving these items that are standard menu items, it should have been advertised so patrons could choose whether to dine there or not.

I've dined at Stanford Kitchen several times, and have only good things to say about it. If I were to complain about anything it's that the Key Lime Pie is so good I ate a big slice by myself.

Lemonade took 20 minutes to come from the bar. No exaggeration. Server was inattentive. We had to ask for the specials and she didn’t ask if we wanted dessert, just brought the check. We usually go to Stanford grill in Columbia or Copper canyon in Arundel mills and never ran into these issues.
