Diner Reviews
  • "The food was not great. It was a waste of our hard working money."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "The evening was very nice. We all enjoyed the food and great conversation. The staff was pleasant and very attentive. At least once a month I meet a friend for lunch. When we arrive the hostess adresses us by name. This is always the start to a very nice experience."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "Food, service and atmosphere was great. The staff is very consistent in the level of service and food was even better than last time."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "We meet once every 6 months in a "half-way spot." This time we chose Stanfords. The food was good, however, the server was not quite what I have experienced at Stanfords. I asked about an item I had had before, instead of offering up what menu I would find it on, she shrugged it off and said it is probably on the Happy Hour menu. Other Stanfords I have visited, offered to get the item even though it was not on the menu. I felt a little put off by the experience. In the end, our food was great, however by the time we were done, we had interacted with 3 different servers. Our original server did not even explain that someone else would be taking over. Someone else took our dessert order, and in the end, someone else took our payment."

  • "Very disappointed in our meal. The prime rib was full of fat and gristle. I bet I didn't get but two bites off of it! The salmon was so dry and brittle I didn't touch it. Stanford's was one of out favorite restaurants in the past, it was our daughter's birthday and she requested that we go there. I don't believe we will be visiting your restaurant again. On the good side, our waitress was great and the drinks were good"

  • "We had a good time at Stanford's. Good food at a good price."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "I wanted to eat someplace decent in Portland. This would be one of the best Portland would be able to offer. I don't think the locals would come here.. Just a few of us tourist were there."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "This is an OK restaurant. It's a chain, what do you want? The service was good. The food was average. The decor is predictable."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We have discovered Happy Hour here, also a good menu for other meals. By registering their card many generous discounts are available. They also give gift cards on special occasions such as Mother's Day and Father's Day. Food is very good and well presented. We go here two or three times a month."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Entertaining out-of-state relatives for dinner is so easy with Stanfords. Waiters with respect and a smile do as much for a great meal as good food. We were blessed with both. Darrin was the epitome of good service. My 81-year old cousin remarked that she had believed that this type of service had died in the US. He was courteous but, most importantly, not flippant. Not once did he say "you guys" or something to that effect. The meal was outstanding, as usual. Thank you for helping make a long, overdue, family reunion a great success."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "I regularly use Stanford's for business lunches and interview candidates."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "Needed a way to feed extended family before my son's graduation. Stanford's has something for everyone, accommodated a group of 8 quickly and provided wonderful service."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "Food and service were good. No waiting for table was great"
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "I really like the background music from the 70's. And the food was excellent. The salmon was a little dry but deliciously prepared. The service was wonderful and I noticed the way the other customers were treated,too. The waiters were busy but stayed on top of things gracefully. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014

  • "food delivery slow; size of portions large; left hat when departed--we will see if returned? leftovers great."
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "We have recently rediscovered Stanfords at Jantzen Beach. It has become one of our favorites for Happy Hour. With a registered parton card many special offers are available."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Never again for a special occasion. Runny eggs, steak not cooked as specified, and the breakfast burrito was so tough you couldn't easily cut it. The price and quality were in conflict. Our server was wonderful though. We've always loved Stanford's at Jantzen Beach and will stick with lunch and the bar."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "My wife and I ordered the Halibut fish and chips. The oil that the fish and fry's was not hot enough so all of the oil was absorbed by the batter and the fries. Because of this It was hardly edible. I will not go back. It is too bad, because the service was excellent."
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "Good food as usual. Like the dining rewards and special rewards program with the restaurant chain, prompting me to dine there more often. Some sites fairly close to home for us, making it more convenient."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "We were seated within 5 minutes of arrival. So glad we made a reservation. We both had the grilled steak salad. It was excellant. The meat was cooked perfectly, the dressing tasty, and the cheese bread was to die for. We will definitely return."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We usually go to the Stanford's at Lake Oswego, or at the Clackamas Towne Center. Both are just fine. Good food, good service. NOT SO at Jantzen Beach. Food below standard, restaurant untidy, table not well kept, even the menu was "sticky" from the last customer? I would go to Denny's before I spent any time returning to this location. Sorry, this one let me down."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "We had a business recognition lunch at Stanford's. It's a good place for that as the food and service are good and it's relatively quiet."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "We took 4 of our friends to the restaurant and enjoyed ourselves tremendously. I had a prime rib and usually never have it , but boy was it delicious. i was treated to a $100 gift card and a $50 gift card and a 10% discount from Stamford's and so the $205 bill came down to $35. It was so nice but I did give the gal a very nice tip. My husband had the fajaitas but he was not thrilled with them. but over all the rest of the group also enjoyed their meal. Jean Bartholomew"
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "Was glad we had reservations. When we arrive, at 6:15, the restaurant was full and many, many people waiting to be seating. We were seated immediately, but one of the worst seats in the house. When we inquired about moving to the both next to it, were told someone had specifically requested it. That was not believable. It felt like the hostess just did not want to accommodate. Th start, service was slow , bar was waaaaay, backed up, but eventually waitress got up to speed and addresses our every need. The evening was enjoyable with above good food."

  • "Took client to business lunch and was very satisfied with experience."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "We love dining at this Stanford's. It's the best service and food around. The ribs are amazing!"
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "Good service, a little slow to take our order. The bacon on one of the orders was blackened and didn't look or taste appetizing; my friend ordered her chicken sandwich without bread so the bacon was exposed and overcooked. Deserts were very good. All 3 other meals were good."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "While a bit pricey, Stanford's continues to be one of my favorites. While their food is what I would consider average-good, their servers are always wonderful and their desserts are scrumptious. During the summer, we love to come and sit on the patio and sip iced tea. Plus, it's great for a couples night out such as a birthday or Valentines Day. We like the bar for Game Day as well. Overall, its really the atmosphere that makes this restaurant and thats why we love it."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "No bread or salad that is offered.The 12oz $30. rib eye had an inch of fat on the outside and middle of steak.The lobster was a joke.Was still a little Hungary after dinner,ordered dessert which was very good.I guess that's why they don't have bread or salad before meals so that you might buy dessert. "it worked"But wont be back."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I made reservations for 6pm . Due to traffic we were running a bit late, on valentine's day. One simplebphone call and there was still a table waiting for us. Great service, great drinks!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We were late due to unusually heave traffic! The Hostes still had us seated in 15 min on Valentines eve I was very surprised and extremely happy. The food was prepared just rite and the service was great as always!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The food, service, and ambiance were perfect. At one point we noticed that the salmon was under cooked, which my wife was eating. I called over a server who said "we cook it a little 'rawer' than other places" however our server rushed over and made it right. Took it back to be cooked properly and returned with a replacement."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "They have the most amazing colby beef hamburger with a crab sauce. This hamburger will melt in your mouth. Have that along with their salmon soup which has great flavor and big chunks of salmon in it. Kuddos to the chef, that is why I continue to come back!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The overall taste and quality of food was really nice. The atmosphere is quiet and private, but the whole experience was negated by the cost and lack of side dishes with main courses. When I order a $29 ribeye, it ought to come with salad, soup, or bread. Yet at Stanfords, you will pay extra for any of the above. Our steaks were tender, flavorful, and cooked well. The salmon was bland and unimpressive. Cobbler bad, cheesecake good. For the overall cost, we expect more. We could get the same experience for a lower price elsewhere. We have payed comparable prices for a much better experience elsewhere. We enjoyed the quiet and private environment, but the prices will probably take us to restaurants that price their experience more accurately."

  • "I enjoy dining here every time! This last visit, we had Nick as our waiter - he was exceptional! Thank you for the great service and fantastic food."
