Food is good, been there a few times, but the last time I went (couple days ago) the waitress AND the waitor didn't know the difference between a Filet Mignon and a Prime Rib. We explained to the waitress that what was delivered was not a Filet Mignon and we didn't want to be charged extra, but she insisted that it was. I got tired of arguing with her about it, and just gave up. Every time we go to Stanford's we order the Filet Mignon, so how is it different now? They need to know the difference of what they are cooking, and delivering to tables! A filet Mignon is fat and round, a prime rib is long and flat!
Wife and I had a little time away from the kids to celebrate her bday. She had been to Sunol Ridge before and wanted to return as she liked is so much. This is a unique place, our service was great and the food was good. However, the menu is without a doubt overpriced, most items should be dropped by $5-$8. Also, this place is in conflict with itself. They have an amazing selection of microbrew and some good wines, bar food and higher end food. It wants to be a chill beer bar with TVs and a higher end restaurant. I'd give it 3.5 if that was an option.
I went here with a friend and we took advantage of the 100 dollar meal for 2 which included 2 salads, 2 sides, a filet mignon and lobster tail combo, and 2 desserts! It was a great deal and we accompanied it with a nice bottle of australian wine that the waiter suggested. The staff was very helpful and courteous and the ambiance was terrific. Will definitely come back.
