Diner Reviews
  • "Frankly, after a sub-par experience a few years ago, my wife and I had dismissed Stanford's from our list of dining establishments. However, this past week, we had a bit of a Restaurants Unlimited giftcard (we buy them at Costco to use at Portland City Grill - $80 for $100) to use up, and we were shopping at Clackamas Town Center, so we decided to give Stanford's another shot. We were delighted. We were seated immediately, and the restaurant was pleasantly modern and upscale. Our server was new to the establishment, but what he lacked in experience he made up for in ethusiasm (Jesse). My wife had the house gourmet mac and cheese, and I had the halibut fish and chips - both were quite excellent. I'm happy to say we'll be back!"

  • "We ate at Stanford's in Clackamas on Valentine's Day and were given cards for various gifts and discounts so decided to come back. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent as was the service. We all tried something different than we had in the past and were not disappointed. My only complaint that the parking area is way too small but that will not stop us from coming back!"

  • "I understand that we visited the day after Valentine's and the restaurant was seriously packed. We arrived at 6:29 for our 6:30 reservation and were told we would be seated shortly. They made us cool our heels for over 20 minutes before taking us back to our table. I understand waiting a few minutes, but not 20...that's why I made a reservation. We had been there about 25 minutes when the air conditioning came on. We were all very comfortable before, but as soon as the cold air came on above us, we were all miserable. We asked them to turn it off and they said there was nothing they could do. This honestly ruined the experience. Although the food was good, it was very difficult to enjoy it while we were so uncomfortable."

  • "Food ok however the service needed a little help, drinks came 2 at a time(7 diners) with a long wait in between - Finally after asking - beer showed up. Maybe pouring a beer is time consuming. Ordered and waited for food, meals came 2 at a time, and then after an awkward 6-8 minutes finally flagged down a different sever to ask if they were bringing the Mac and Cheese that was ordered ( first I might add). Probably the hardest to make I guess. Food was ok however rack of ribs were dry with an extremely hot temperature Usually a pretty good tipper but that was done for us as we had a extra large group of 7 diners so they took the 18% A bad night or do you really care if you know you will get your tip no matter what type of service is given?"

  • "Frankly the food was just okay. Nothing special. My steak Oscar was cooked and seasoned nicely, but the presentation did not do the dish justice. Pretty much like Mom would load a plate at home. The steak had some gristle and fat that suggested a lower cut of meat and could have been trimmed. The ambience was very pleasant though a bit loud. The service was very good."

  • "Unfortunately, our order went wrong, one steak was ordered as med/well and came out rare.. We sent it back and it came back med.. We ordered a baked potato and got scalloped potatoes.. Both errors on one meal.. Manager was great and took care of that meal. We still love Stanford's!"

  • "Many times, going out to dine on holidays, can be disappointing. The food, service, and crowds can be less than desirable. Not the case at all at Stanford's! Outstandibg, professional, and prompt. What a Valentine's treat! Our server eas a middle aged fellow, who was pure class and had knowledge of the menu. Theyre lucky to have a eait syaff with him on board."

  • "Stanford's always delivers. It's very kid friendly (they include a sundae with a kid's meal!), but it's also great for date nights with my wife. The service is always great, and the food is consistently very good. There's hardly ever a wait (especially thanks to OpenTable) and it's just all-around very, very solid."

  • "So enjoyed the evening. And certainly appreciated the gift card. We have been doing this for the last 3 years and look forward to next year. The service was ok. Was surprised to find that we had a party of 9 and was told that when you have a party of 10 they will charge a mandatory 18 %. We were charged 18 % even though we only had 9. Waitress certainly didn't earn 18 percent. Loved getting together at such a fine restaurant. Thank you. Jo Ann Hayner"

  • "We had dinner with a table of 6. Five adults and one child. Service was lovely. Not pushy and very excited with our orders. Food was prepared well and delivered fresh and hot. The Pickies member of our group had no complaints. We have the tenderloin tips in the cabernet sauce with mashed potatoes and asparagus. DELISH! We also ordered the flat bread pizza and I know that the family wants to return to just have a pizza lunch. They really loved it. My standby fresh salad with ranch is always fantastic. Crunchy and just the right amount of dressing. This was not our first time at Stanford's and we will continue to return to Stanfords for meals."

  • "I've usually had great service at Stanford's so I felt safe in taking my family there on Christmas Day. However, the restaurant was not prepared for the rush of people. We had reservations; many did not. I feel we suffered because too many people without reservations were seated. We waited a full hour for our food. The food was good, however. To be fair, the waiter was working hard. There were not enough wait staff and the manager evidently did not plan well. Or the rules need to change on holidays so that people with reservations can receive the top notch service Stanford's is known for."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "Even with confirmed reservation, waited almost 30 minutes in crowded drafty entrance area. Server indicated there was some confusion about who the table belonged to?? All staff, including server, were cheery and helpful, but it was very very slow. Partner's ribs were tender and delicious, but my salmon oscar had only the smallest dab of bearnaise and crab, almost nonexistent, and salmon was flavorless and downright chewy. Server never appeared to check on food. Finally, bill presented was for wrong table, for triple the amount spent! Two days later the incorrect charge has not cleared from bank account. We have enjoyed Stanfords before, and will give it another try, but was sadly NOT the hoped for special holiday experience."

  • "We had a wonderful evening, 3 retired ladies, alone for most of Christmas, found it to be a warm, friendly restaurant. Our server was wonderful. He was happy to be there, even on a holiday, to make it a special evening for us. The food was wonderful. The best I have had at any Stanford's . The other two ladies had been there for Happy Hour. I can definitely say that we will be back, and bring friends."

  • "I chose Stanford's as a central location for multiple colleagues to meet. I knew the food would taste great and the ambiance would allow for us to talk without combating extreme noise conditions found at some restaurants. I was surprised at how accommodating the staff was to my special request (the staff in past visits were always professional and pleasant). Stanford's more than met my expectations, and I recommend Stanford's for business dining or for nice personal occasions."
