I was pleasantly suprised by this place. The food was very good and so was the survice. It offered an upscale experience, although I must say the wine list is a bit lacking. Also, it's a bit pricey, but that is expected at a an upscale place like this.

We had a group of five, and everyone had a very good meal. The tri-tips are one of their staple offerings and prepared to order. Two of us had steaks, tender and tasty, and the others had salmon and fish and chips. We shared a chocolate dessert that was very satisfying. The ambiance here is rather like a nice club--lots of wood, lots of comfortable booths. Also, it's on the way home from SeaTac for us, so we stop in often when a family member is visiting.

I ordered the Tenderloin Tips....which is listed under their speciaties....they were well-done and I ordered them medium rare...and I would guess the cut of meat was not tenderloin, it was more like top sirloin.

Nice relaxing atmosphere
I really enjoyed my dining experience at Stanford's. The filet mignon was extremely tasty and the service was friendly and attentive. I will come again to try something new. I would recommend this restaurant to a friend or to anyone that needs to plan a special occasion. It is great for groups.

A new favorite!
I hadn't been to Stanford's in years and my husband had never there - we live in Tacoma and Southcenter is a bit of a drive. Since several of our favorite places in Tacoma have closed, we expanded our search to Southcenter and I remembered Stanford's when I saw it on a list on Open Table. I suggested we try it for dinner and we are so glad we did. Our server Devin was great - we'll ask for her the next time! And I was impressed that, when my filet mignon was brought out, I was asked to cut into it to make sure it had been cooked to my specifications - at all the places I have been in the past, no one has ever done that. The filet was amazing - I'll definitely order that again. We were impressed with everything - our new favorite!

Nice place to take a client
I was able to get a reservation for that same evening for a party of 5 which was convenient. The food was very good and the waitresses were friendly and helpful. We had a table in the back and it was quiet. Overall it was a pleasant experience. One of the nicer restaurants around the mall area.

Definitely a step above most restaurants! Service, food and setting were great. We stayed almost three hours and were able to carry on a real conversation as it was quiet, yet still provided a fun atmosphere!

Good All Around
Stanford's is a good all around restaurant with excellent prices. The restaurant is never crowded, the bar is separated from the restaurant by a wall so the restaurant is quiet and the servers are always courteous and professional.

This Place Works For Me
I was apprehensive after reading some less-than-ideal reviews, but I must say - my experience was outstanding! The Prime Rib was perfectly cooked, the side dishes tasty and perfectly done. The dinner salad was a bit large, but so well done that I welcomed the extra. Dessert - Apple Crisp - was to die for! Add attentive (but not intrusive) service and I'd have to say Stanford's is my new BFF for upscale dining. Espresso was prompt, properly made, and delicious. You could certainly pay more elsewhere, and get more pretension, but the experience I had compares well with any of the upscale Seattle restaurants.

For standard American Food, this place is great and curbes your appetite especially before a plane ride (5 minutes from the airport). The kruse burger is well balanced and loaded with creamy avocado, peppered bacon and a medium rare burger patty. Fries aren't very good here but there salad is delicious.

Food was good and setting was just right for our group. Cyndie L was a terrific waitress!

Our favorite place!
It is rare today that one can find a restaurant with great food and atmosphere without going into the city and paying a hefty price. Stanfords has great food, competitive pricing and unlike many other restaurants, you can actually hear your conversation without yelling across the table! We love this place and never tire of it.

Company Dinner - Unisys
The restaurant provided a great venue for company arranged dinner for eight (8); food was excellent, drinks and service. This was the first for the company however, patronized on numerous occasions during personal events. Thank you for excellent service.

Great Find on Open Table
We would not have found this restaurant w/o Open Table. We needed a restaurant close to SEATAC Airport for supper before a late night departure. Stanford's popped up on Open Table and we gave it a shot. We were seated quickly in a quiet part of the restaurant which was perfect for 5 people who wanted to catch up on each other's summer activities. Carrie provided excellent service and told us about the $19.99 special of steak, lobster, shrimp, vegetables and potatoes. Four of us chose the special while the fifth order the Mac and cheese with bacon. We all wanted a taste of the Mac & Cheese w/ bacon so we ordered a side bowl of it. The steaks & shrimp were cooked perfectly, the 3-4 oz of lobster was delicious. We will be back!

Family Birthday dinner
we celebrated a milestone birthday for my sister with family and friends. It was quite nice, the the bar seemed to be a bit slow our food was great and the service was too.
Thanks so much

Nice lunch ambience
Stanford's is nicely furnished, creating a relaxed yet intimate feel. Lunch menu selection was good, the chicken tortilla soup delicious and one of the best BLT sandwiches around! Reasonably priced, waitress very gracious with special requests.

Nice choice for a meal
Doing errands at Southcenter we read other reviews about this palce and thought we'd give it a try...and were not disappointed. Very nice place, wide ranging menu, excellent service. A nice choice if you're in the area.
9/18/2013 5:00:00 PM
Not only was my reservation honored but do try the Chef's menu! Three wines are recommended to compliment the pallet & the menu is eloquently detailed. I enjoyed Alaskan Salmon topped with Dungeness Crab drizzled with Bolanaise sauce...delicious!!

attentive service for business
attentive service for business meeting of 5. In main restaurant ,but quiet enough. Good variety of menu choices.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Hosts and servers are outstanding. Attentive, prompt, courteous. Instead of refilling coffee brought new full cup of coffee. Rest rooms clean, convenient, and well supplied. Parking very good. Nicely appointed interior offsets lack of shopping center view outside. Landscape surrounding facility well maintained. Enjoy taking guests there. Quiet and easy place for conversation without loud music of TV.

Love this new find
My first impression was very good; we were warmly greeted and seated straight away, at first I kind of missed the little extras like the bread and soup/salad starters. There were four in my group including my fourteen year old daughter, what was ordered? My wife had smoked chicken linguine, my daughter had crab and shrimp crusted halibut my guest had the sirloin tips and I had the grilled rib eye that had been marinated in pineapple and soy for 48 hours. The flavors of these dishes were overwhelmingly delightful and completely made up for missing the starters. We all were completely satisfied and will and have recommend Stanford’s to all I know that are looking for that one great place to eat.

Out for Thanksgiving
There was a good variety on the menu with the addition of the Turkey dinner. All the meals were tasteful but the plates with mashed potatoes had been left under the heat lamps too long. There was a noticeable skin on the potatoes when the plates were served to the table. Between the six of us there were five different menu items ordered. Everyone was satisfied with their meal and was happy with the outcome of the dinner. At dinners end, they were out of two of the five desserts offered.

If anyone thinks that excellent dining ends south of Yesler, they need to try some of the fantastic South King County restaurants like Stanford's. Since it was just my son home from college and I, and I saw the OpenTable suggestions, I thought, why not just try out a Thanksgiving dinner out. Great choice! I started with the squash soup, which, really, knocked me out the taste was so fantastic. Then on to the dinner, piled high with at least 3 generous servings. Hearty mashed potatoes and stuffing. The wine list is short and my selection of King's Pinot Gris matched turkey just fine. We topped it off with pumpkin cheesecake. The name alone should make your mouth water!
