  • "The fried chicken was especially good. It was a chicken breast over mashed potatoes, and under mushrooms and gravy. Very tasty!"

  • "The steak was wonderful! The garlic mashed potatoes were good, but they could have had more garlic in them. The asparagus was soooo good."

  • "Good meal though the quality seems to be going down. I ate prime rib, but it had more fat than meat."

  • "Celebrated a birthday. Food was delicious and the service was perfect. The waitress was perfectly attentive when needed but otherwise discrete. Food was from the specials and was inspired and well prepared. Will return"

  • "Service could not have been better -- Copper River salmon prepared perfectly. One of the best Caesar salads I've had in years. Be sure your hungry if you're going to have a salad and an entree. They don't just dump your food on the table and never come back, the server checks to be sure all is good w/o be intrusive and you don't feel like they're trying to sell sell sell. Very laid back..."

  • "Sadly our waitress (Alex) was more interested in the Indiana Braves hat wearing bartender. If not at the bar chatting him up (and us having to 'excuse me'...to another waitress for help), she was back-to-customers in the far hidden corner of bar, no joke for over 15 minutes! Gave our tip to the gal that actually helped us. Side note, the happy hour appetizers have almost doubled in price."

  • "It would have been nice to have more than 1 tiny piece of fish in each of my fish tacos. Service was very good and the setting was good for a successful business lunch. Thanks!"

  • "This was my second visit and very enjoyable. Will return again."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Food was very good but seemed a bit like high priced bar food. My main entree was a salad which was very bland but was plated very nicely. My son had the fish and chips which was great but again it was fish and chips. My husband had fish tacos."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "I chose the restaurant because it is located walking distance from our hotel. Loved the Copper River Salmon special. Fresh and perfectly cooked. Dessert was over the top delicious."

  • "We came in as a group for a birthday lunch, the service was outstanding, we were in and out in a reasonable amount of time and they made the birthday girl feel pretty special with a wonderful dessert. The food was as alway delicious. I look forward to lunch each time we go over. Thank you"

  • "As soon as I was notified that Stanford's had Copper River Salmon, I made a reservation through Open Table. When I called and learned that the supply was very limited, I move up the reservation by a day. I called the day of the reservation and learned that they only had 13 servings left. They agreed to hold two for my wife and me. When we arrived (after a 40+ mile trip), they only had 10 servings left. Our hostess had informed our waitress of our trip and she advised that we order quickly to ensure that we got our servings. The salmon was as good as we remembered, which was QUITE GOOD, and the personal attention was very flattering."

  • "The ribs and steak we had were especially good today. We appreciate the ability to change to baked potatoes, too. This was a waitress we had never had before, and the service would have been spotty except that another waitress in the area noticed that our needs were going unmet and came back with water and ice tea refills. "

  • "We just celebrated an Easter brunch in Lake Oswego. I knew the food would be very good, and it certainly was. What I would like to praise is the excellent service we received in spite of the booked solid status of Stanford's that day. Our server, a gracious young man, was equally attentive to each member of our party: a five-year-old child, a senior citizen, and the mother of the child. I have dined here a few times over the years, and each time the service was superb!"

  • "We all enjoyed our food and the service was timely and polite. Special note on the bloody mary.........very nice!"
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "My other experience with this Stanford's would have earned more stars, that's why we were eager to have brunch there. There were some large family groups there for brunch that impacted our service significantly. We had to wait a long time for everything. I even had to snag an employee other then our server to get the check and a take home box. The staff was obviously stretched too thin. One tries to be understanding about these things, but jeez, it's not like it was a surprise to the management that bigs groups as well as parties of 2 would be fulfilling their reservations. The food was good. The fresh fruit starter plate was ok. My boyfriend had a bacon cheeseburger that was very good. My smoked salmon benedict was yummy."

  • "I had the steak dinner: steak, baked potato, and asparagus. Each of those three things was outstanding. They are able to do medium rare steaks medium rare, a task many restaurants don't seem able to do."
    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "I had the beer cheese soup, and it was outstanding. The flavors stood out. Often others sell beer cheese soup that tastes more like a chicken base they have used than either beer or cheese. to this soup. It was great!"
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Our server made the meal. She was really nice and very accommodating."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "This is a great place to go if you go in a group and need a place to hear everyone in your group. Expect to pay a high price for the level of food though. I think the average starting age of all in there was 55. Quiet so you were able to talk but not a happening place."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Everything (except salad) had way too much butter or oil. Son had cheese burger - too much butter or oil on the bun. Bread that accompanied dinner - too much oil or butter in addition to the cheese - could not eat it. I had rice and vegetables with my prime rim - way too much butter or oil on rice and vegetables - left puddle on plate. Wife had a chicken & bean salad - they ran out of the dressing that was to be on it and had to have a bbq dressing, only a couple of beans, almost all lettuce (very little of expected tomato, etc.) although the chicken was ok. Stanfords use to be a one of our restaurants for special occasions - not anymore. Had a better meal at Applebees that is just across the street. Stanfords is not special anymore."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "We had a business luncheon meeting and had 10+ people. The tables were all set up ahead of time and we had plenty of elbow room for papers and materials. The food was really good, the staff was attentive to ensure we had plenty of refills and great at some special diet requests. Everyone was friendly, positive and accommodating. The vibe of a restaurant can help win or sink a deal. The setting was perfect for our meeting and it was a great success."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "I had the roasted chicken and mushrooms over mashed potatoes which was wonderful. It was the first time I had had this meal. I substituted their asparagus for the green beans. I received enough for two meals, so I had it again that evening. Warmed up was still a good meal."
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "Their southwest white bean soup is excellent. I also had a prime rib French dip, of which I could only eat half. Half went home for dinner. It was a very lean sandwich, and would have been a great dipping sandwich that way. Their horse radish sauce, though, is really a step above most horse radish sauce and made this an exceptional lunch."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "We sent them back twice, they were over cooked, somewhat burnt and the sauces were salty. We finally gave up on them. The wait staff were very courteous but ultimately could not control the quality of the food coming out if the kitchen."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "My roommate ordered Salmon Oscar and I had tenderloin tips. Our waiter was in a hurry. He took the entree order and left before I could say I wanted a salad, so I had to flag him down to order one. It arrived only moments before the entree. The salmon was delicious and perfectly cooked. The tips were medium well, while I had ordered medium rare, but they were still tasty and tender. The salad was too huge to eat, so I took it home. The real problem this evening was the service. In addition to the above, we sat for probably a half hour with dirty plates. Tonight was just disappointing, but I have experienced better service before so I will be back. The waiter also didn't give us the promotional card all RU locations are giving thru 3/31."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "They are running full steam at times other places are lax during the mid afternoon hours. I had a soup I hadn't had before, the southwest bean soup, and next time I would probably make a lunch of that instead of just a cup of soup. It was wonderful. It was hot, and had enough seasoning to put it beyond just bean soup. I also had the salmon salad which I love always, so it was a fantastic mid afternoon lunch."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "My spouse and I enjoy dining at Stanford's. The food is very good, affordable and the restaurant conveniently located. We also enjoyed dining at Stanford's last Christmas and receiving gift cards to use during the early part of the new year. We will definitely make this a tradition, if the restaurant offers the program this year."
