Wow has this restaurant gone downhill. We've been coming since they opened. But something has changed dramatically in the service. The management clearly is not handling the staff well. Our waiter was over worked while other staff members stood around chatting and laughing with each other. There was not a sense of teamwork, rather the attitude was "this isn't my table so I don't have to pay attention". The waiter himself was very nice and enthusiastic. He just had no team support. As a result, service was slow, wine served late and never offered to be poured, dirty dishes not cleared, no offer of dessert menu, had to ask for check..... This restaurant is not competitive anymore with the other options available in the area. On top of that, the menu has changed and is very uninteresting. So sad to see the decline in what had been one of our go to places.
It was a tough night for them with a 7:30 Stanford football game coming up across the street. But they were overbooked and underprepared, and it showed. Multiple items on the menu were no longer available by 6:15. Drink orders got screwed up and service was spotty. Some of our orders came out okay, others not so much.
It is good for Stanford pre football game dinner. The impossible burger was good and service was excellent.
This is one of our "go to" brunch spots in Palo Alto. Great food, excellent service. It gets crowded quickly so I strongly recommend making a reservation.
What was once an excellent restaurant has become very average. Slow service, took 20 minutes at least to place order and get cocktails delivered. Some of our food was great. Ribs arrived cold (how does that happen). Waitress while pleasant just was not attentive. We brought a bottle of wine. After 20 minutes I opened it myself and had to ask out waitress yet again for two glasses. We probably will only eat here going forward at lunch. Many other better choices for dinner.
Food is to salty. Noise level very loud. But the waiter was efficient.
Food is consistently good. Service is consistently slow, especially when party is first seated. They could do a better job keeping the restaurant cleaner. You get a sense the staff is overwhelmed. When you arrive, the greeter is efficient and professional. Beware of “living wage” tax of 5.5% on bill which is optional. Overall experience good.
Service is a bit slow but great environment for a brunch and lunch date. Love their options and healthy options available
One of my favorite restaurants in the Bay Area!
Fun place for dinner with friends. Had pot pie, salmon and ribs. Everything was great. Server was very helpful with suggestions.
Great food and great service - for my brother’s birthday.
We used to LOVE going to Mayfield for brunch. Their brioche french toast and maple peacan hotcake were AMAZING. Brunch hour usually means a small sampling of their awesome soup of the day as well as a small plate of madeleines. Service was great, the place was don mordern farmhouse with an atmosphere for welcomed guests.
Yesterday, I went to Mayfield and it was almost unrecognizable. Food was completely subpar. The kids had pancakes (bisquick, you can taste it) and I had the corn soup (puree something or rather, no tastes). I got upsell for a pitcher of mimosa (that the waiter said was only worth four glasses but then came back with a bottle of champagne and a pitcher of orange juice that ended up being about six to seven glasses total). It's nothing but an ordinary, ho hum place with overpriced food.
I'm so disappointed by my experience. To top off, there's no more table cloth, the bathroom was filthy. Yikes, what happened?
Dinner at Mayfields has been going downhill for awhile now. The noise level for starters is out of control and the service at night is poor to fair. It seems they don't have a large enough wait staff. The food options for dinner are also limited.
Mediocre food, expensive. Poor overall value.
We loved the delicious meal and service. I thought the rib portion was too large and didn’t enjoy the price tag.
Vibrant restaurant and nice location but too expensive for what you get. It is good to have a busy restaurant but for some reason the noise level seems quite high. On warm days the air conditioner can't keep up with the crowd.
Good food and good service. Enjoyed Sunday brunch.
Our waitress was a doll, so nice, cheerful and helpful.
Mayfield Bakery has always been a delight....
No gluten free options but will accommodate substitutions and deletions
We had to wait a bit for the table to be set up to accommodate our party, even though we had made a reservation beforehand. It can also be a bit noisy, which makes having conversations difficult. Still, Mayfield is one of my go-to places in Palo Alto - the food is always tasty and the service is always friendly.
Food is always high quality with fantastic flavors. Love the seating on the outdoor patio - pleasant and relaxing place to enjoy your meal :)
Always a pleasure.
The orange juice is not freshly squeezed! They had indicated it was but I was disappointed that it was not.
This once fantastic restaurant has lost its luster with mediocre service and uninspiring food. There are good options in town that are better money spent where the food is memorable and the service delightful. Go elsewhere.
I love this place it's so different and has great energetic vibe to it.
I love salads here.
This time I had a kale salad with salmon. Salmon was cooked to perfection and was very tasty.
Highly recommend and will be back soon. And don't forget their bread fresh baked at the restaurant!
We had a wonderful time - wait staff was very attentive the food was good although they gave us mini muffins at the end of our meal and we ordered coffees to go with it - I think they charged us for the muffins in the end which doesn't seem right. I'd go again though, and highly recommend the restaurant but you need reservations!!
Good food, good service. A bit pricey for lunch.
The food was just okay. The noise level was too high.
Excellent food, excellent service! The only problem was that they were out of their chicken pot pies. The salmon was excellent and the ribs were tasty! I would highly recommend this restaurant to friends.
Service was shabby
Love the summer barbecue series!
Always s very nice dining experience. Delicious food, great service, but too noisy.
After ordering, we waited over 40 minutes and our food still hadn't arrived. We asked the waiter to check on our order, only to find out they had "lost" our order. They apologized and within 10 minutes our food arrived. We had to eat as quickly as possible in order to make it to a concert on time. Not an enjoyable dining experience. Won't be returning.
The last time we went to Mayfield Bakery and Cafe, we requested a table outside but had to eat inside where it was VERY noisy and difficult to have a conversation. This time when I made the reservation, I requested a table outside under the oaks. This time we got one, and it was much more pleasant, with conversation possible.
My one complaint about food was the French toast which tasted good, but it was very hard to cut through the crust. I should have asked for a steak knife.
They were OUT OF nearly everything on the menu! How can that happen at 6pm on a Friday?
Great food! Quick to get seated and no hassle.
I've been here several times and always found the food to be flavorful and creative. This time it was disappointing. The heirloom tomatoes were not 100% ripe--and they really ought to be spectacularly ripe to justify serving a whole plate of them. The steak preparation was so-so; I ordered medium-rare and it came out medium; and serving it on an underseasoned bed of cucumbers really didn't work.
The young host and hostess are not professional and rude! The server is just ok and doesn’t really make much eye contact. However the food is good
I always go here for breakfast on the last morning I visit family in Palo Alto. The food is spot on. The ambiance both inside and outside are relaxed. Patio is dog friendly.
