Very nice place. The ambiance was laid back and inviting. We loved the live jazz and the food was wonderful. Stanford Grill would make a great date night spot as well. We are already planning a return trip.

The food was wonderful, I think our waiter was new but he was very slow to bring things. We went on a Thursday night and it was still packed.

This is not a children's restaurant. This is a place for adults to socialize and have a good time. Atmosphere is dark but warm and pleasant. The Moscow Mules are hearty, with ample sized adult beverages. The soft jazz music is entertaining and permits conversation....More

This is a very enjoyable restaurant, with a low lights, comfortable booth seating to create a lounge-type atmosphere with an open kitchen and fireplace. There is usually live jazz as background music to add to the atmosphere. The menu is fairly limited, steaks, chops, fish,...More

Came to Stanford Grill with some work colleagues. This is probably the beat restaurant in Columbia. Loved my steak, done just right. Decent wine list. And David, the bartender, made us some great pre-dinner cocktails.
