One of our regular dining spots
We come here often, and it's very reliable. They don't balk at special requests, they have a varied menu, the salmon, filet mignon, burgers, side veggies (especially the grilled green beans)and side salad are excellent, and it's good for a business dinner or meeting another couple when you want to chat and actually hear what they have to say. I'd stay away from the club and the shredded pork BBQ--there are better places locally for that. Also, they don't use MSG for those sensitive to migraines. The servers are among the best in the city, and back each other up magnificently so that drinks are refilled quickly, etc.

Overall great experience!
We were impressed that our table was ready at exactly the time our reservations were made! Love all the food we ordered. It was all so tasty! The speed of service was great even though one of our orders came out incorrect. The location of our table was a little awkward because we felt like we were in the way of traffic. Overall experience was good! Will definitely return!

Good time was had for my wife
Good time was had for my wife and I on our 4 year anniversary. The 50% off special on bottles of wine was pretty nice. The appetizer, entrees and dessert were all excellent and disappeared quickly. Thanks!

I took some colleagues visiting from out of the US to Stanford's for dinner because they wanted steak and they were SO impressed! They ordered sirloins and they were HUGE! We had several people in our party and everyone else ordered something different and we all loved what we ordered. I haven't been to Stanford's much in the past two years because I thought they were going 'downhill' but I will be going back SOON!YUM!

mother's day brunch
We didn't have to wait long; the reservation system worked very well. Waitress and host were very friendly and efficient. Our water was always refilled. Food was great; only exception was the fish & chips (a little dry -- need to get the recipe from Pacific Seafood Restaurant). The mother's day gift card topped it all :) Will go again.

When food arrived, we had to remind the server about the complimentary appetizer and then had to wait for it.

My friend's birthday--but why wait?
It seems that I only go to Stanford's for special occasions, but there's no need for that. The service is excellent and I've never had a meal there that wasn't top notch. It might be a bit pricier than some other places, but not so much that it should deter anyone. The excellence of the food and the service more than compensate for any difference (if there is any!). Go. Enjoy!

Always a Great Dining Experience
The food here is visually appealing and well prepared, very satisfying from a taste standpoint, if leaning towards the spendy side. The staff is very courteous and friendly and service is fast and contributes to a nice overall experience along with the cozy and pleasant atmosphere.

As we made reservations there was no wait and the host seated us right away. The server gave us ample time to make a selection from the menu and was helpful clarifying any questions we had.
Drinks and appetizer were served moderately quickly and the main course was timed perfectly. Both dishes were great. We had plenty of time to finish the meals and we never felt rushed to vacate the table.

Great food and excellent service
Went here for a business dinner and was very happy with the meal, the service and the noise level. The server gave us time to talk when needed and was very attentive throughout the meal. Great place to do business!

gteat date night!
My husband and I have been long time customers (at least since 2000) the food is always delicious and they make great drinks. The only dissappointment was that they were not serving the turkey curry soup! It's fantastic! Our waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and provided great recommendations.

Great time, again!
Once again we had a lovely time at Stanford's. Love your nicer wine glasses. We brought a special bottle of wine to drink with dinner and it was so nice to have a larger size to give credit to a wine with a little age. thanks to our great server too!

Food was great...................
We made reservations for a party of 7 and the wait staff was amazing with the service they provided for our large group. Everyone in our party agreed that their meal was very good. We have eaten at this location before and we will definitely be eating here again.

Great Atmosphere for Dining
This restaurant provides a good atmosphere for two people or a larger gathering. It feels comfortable, service is great, and it's suitable for intimate dining or a family lunch or dinner. The noise level is low and you can actually have a conversation without raising your voice. The food is typically good. Wanting to eat light, I opted for a steak cobb salad. It was OK, but would have been better served in a bowl (instead of a plate) for mixing the salad ingredients. I probably should have ordered something else. From previous dinners at the restaurant, I know their steaks are great. All in all, this restaurant is a step above the other restaurants in the Tanasbourne area.

Had a nice lunch with our niece. We both had the salmon salad and it was very tasty. Actually the salmon was cooked to perfection. The only thing that was kind of annoying was that we were sat way in the back next to a large group that were very noisy. I asked to be moved and we were. I did want to stay in the same server's area, so the move to another booth worked out fine. Otherwise very nice lunch. We'll be back. I was told by the host that he was seating us in his "very favorite two seat booth." It was way too noisy due to the large group who were quite loud. The move was appreciated.

Lovely Lunch Getaway
We chose to have a simple but very tasty lunch, we both had the half sandwich with a bowl of soup. We had different sandwiches and soups.

As a Rewards member I eat there often. I do so because food quality and service are good. It is an excellent vale.

My husband and I usually split
My husband and I usually split an entree as the portions are big and there is never any grief given when we order a split entree. Stanford's splits the plate before serving and it is like getting our own entree.

Stanford's has really upped
Stanford's has really upped their game The menu is so much better than it used to be and the current special is off the chart. I truly wish that they would add the tenderloin/shrimp/lobster/scalloped potatoes special to the menu. They could definitely charge 25+ for it. It's such an amazing meal. Due to the special, I've recommended so many friends and coworkers to try it, as well as hosted a couple dinners. I don't feel the need to go to a steakhouse in Portland since I discovered the special.

We made the reservation thru open table and were greeted and seated quite quickly even though there was a wait list.
the waitress was attentive & polite.
the appitizers are large.We split 2 aamong 4 of us and had leftovers.
the portions were good for the guys and large for the gals (they had leftovers).

My husband and I are frequent
My husband and I are frequent diners at Stanford's and have been quite pleased with the food and service over the years. I had the Salmon Oscar, which was delicious! My husband always orders the beef filet because he says "it melts in your mouth". Regrettably, this time the steak was not as good as usual, was a little tough and the seasonal vegetables were not warm. One other disappointment was that the waiter did not check back with us to make sure the meal was satisfactory after we had a chance to taste our entrees. Even with these shortcomings, we will continue dining at Stanford's.

Holiday turkey dinner
Great Thanksgiving day dinner,the service was excellent.The food was very good except the dark turkey meat was pretty tough, we each got a $20 dollar gift card which we will definately use.Overall better than expected,

The food at Stanfords is always
The food at Stanfords is always good, and Thanksgiving dinner was exceptional. My son had the traditional dinner, but I had Filet Mignon, which was absolutely wonderful. We arrived a little early, but they got us right to our table, and still gave us plenty of time to visit, place our order and eat.
