Hotel restaurants are not usually known for good food, but the Menlo Grill in the Stanford Park Hotel is an exception.

This is a little secret place for a wonderful meal at breakfast, lunch or dinner. The service is excellent and the food is delicious. The chef keeps the menu varied and seasonal.

I met friends for a 22 year reunion on Sunday for Brunch. It is located in a wonderful hotel/B & B with a gorgeous lobby decorated with a 20 foot Christmas tree. The menu was ample and had wonderful things like dessert donuts, cheese tray and french toast. We ordered the endless mimosas and loved our meal and atmosphere. parking... More

We have been to the Menlo Grill for brunch, and dinner. Relaxing and enjoyable with many fresh food options... My favorite is the Mac & Cheese with Bacon! Salad is also very good... Good beer, wine and cocktails too... Cheers

I recently had a business lunch at the Menlo Grill (inside the Stanford Park Hotel) and it was excellent. The decor is old world classic and very comfortable. The place is quiet and you can carry on a good meal conversation. The prices were very reasonable for the quality. Even the ice tea was a treat as it was served... More

We had breakfast at the Menlo Grill when we stayed at the Stanford Park Hotel. The menu had a wide variety of choices and the service was very good. The servings were generous and my huevos rancheros were very good. My husband had an omelet which was good but a little dry. They make their own delicious pastries and breads... More

Even if you are not staying that the hotel, make sure that you stop and eat at the restaurant. It is a popular lunch spot with the locals so you know it is good. Yummy food and great atmosphere

We had a small group dinner (14). There were individualized menus with the name and date of our group at the top. Service was more than excellent - the food was perfect. Dessert was worth taking a picture as well as delicious.
