Stanley & Seafort's
Excellently dining experience!Excellently dining experience! We enjoyed celebrating Mother's Day at your establishment. We will return again in the future. Thanks to the staff for its great, friendly service on this special day.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchWe had a lovely breakfast for Mother's Day, a beautiful view and wonderful service with very good food.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMCheck it out, you'll love it!We were there Mother's day 8:15 PM.
Service and food were excellent.
Ordered Peppercorn Steak and Prime Rib, both were cooked perfectly. Both were large portions.
Medium size PR was of course more expensive than the small, and the Steak was about $40.
At first bite, the Prime Rib seemed a bit too salty (oven roasted with Kosher (?) salt.
But there was no excessive fat and the meat was very tasty.
Amazing view.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA special evening out.It has been a few years since my husband and I have been to Stanley and Seaforts, but it was every bit as good as I remembered. Wonderful views of Tacoma, excellent food and service. Love the martini's! I won't wait years again!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food slow serviceWe visited on Mothers Day weekend and there were also HS Proms as well, but it took 2 hours to get our dinner. Other tables around us seemed to have faster service so this may have been a server problem.
The food was excellent once we did get it, but we were there for almost 3 hours....5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGood FoodIf there is a past item from the menu that you no longer see, you can call 48hrs. in advance and ask the chef to prepare it for your visit! Now that is what I call service.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinnerOur favorite restaurant for special occasions. Great variety on the menu and always excellent service and food.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat mealThe food is always great. Service wonderful. We always enjoy this restaurant. You can still get the pea salad if you ask it's not on the menu anymore.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWild & Organic!We went to S&S for an 11 am lunch. My mom and sister had salmon and rockfish, and both were wild caught and delicious. I had organic roasted chicken with risotto and it was very good. My son enjoyed the kid's salmon, and had fun with his coloring and activity sheet. The restaurant still serves their signature pea salad, it just does not appear on the menu. Key lime pie and some sort of superb chocolate cake finished our meals. Our server was attentive without being intrusive. The staff was all very friendly. We had a relaxing meal-90 minutes on a Friday without being rushed. If the spectacular view of Tacoma is your main reason for coming, request a view table when you reserve as a side seating area is used during really busy times.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA traditional great place to eat.Had dinner for our 25th wedding anniversary, had a lovely window table. The wait staff was proficient, courteous, swift and unobtrusive. He made several recommendations which we enjoyed. The food was wonderful, hot and very tasteful. They even presented us with a small anniversary card with a hand written note, very thoughtful. It had been about 15 years since we were there last as we did not live in the area until recently. I would certainly go again.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMStanley & Seafort's has aStanley & Seafort's has a special place in my heart. Many years ago it was the one of a handful of places in Tacoma you would go to for a romantic date. I took my future wife there for dinner on our first date. They had to chase us out at closing time. Tacoma's restaurant selection has improved dramatically since then but Stanley's is always the place of choice for special occasions and important business lunches. That is why returning there this week to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary was a natural. The staff didn't have to chase us out at closing this time, but the experience was just as delightful. Our service was outstanding: attentive but not obtrusive. The food was. as always, conceived and prepared and presented very well.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary dinnerWe have been here twice before and I actually made the decision to dine here based on the warm pear bread pudding which I love. Our food was wonderful: the wedge salad was so fresh and the filet melted in your mouth. The atmosphere was relaxed and we love the view. I must say that our waitress Kristy was awesome! She was so friendly and helpful when we had questions, so attentive; I couldn't say enough nice things about her. She helped in making the evening special. (We took home the bread pudding.)5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSpectacular Dining at It's BestI have been dining at Stanley & Seafort's fairly regularly for the past 6 years & have always had exceptional service. The personal service provided by staff is beyond wonderful. A special Thanks to our routine waiter Terry. He changed his schedule & came in earlier than his scheduled shift, just to help celebrate my birthday this past Saturday. He always remembers my favorite drink, Vanilla Blue Sky Martini, & has it ready for me without asking. The hostess greeted my party by name and sat us down immediately. The little extra touches and personalized service makes customers feel welcomed, appreciated, and that staff really cares about their customers. Thank you for making me and my friend welcome and feel a part of the Stanley's family!!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch with a viewLunch with a view and a great friend. Perfect day. Service was excellent. Food was excellent!!!! Will definitely be back. Enjoyed the view on a gorgeous day! When I asked, we were provided with black napkins. Wearing black pants or a black skirt and being presented with a white napkin equals a lot of lint. Suggestion:check what the guests are wearing and offer a black napkin rather than making guests ask for one would be top notch service.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMbest of tacomathis establishment overlooks the waters and city of tacoma, beautiful day or night. their maytag salad has been a group favorite over the past twenty years. the servers work as a team and it's not uncommon to have the manager stop by your table to ensure that the time spent is special. prices are on the high side, but they offer a happy hour with a wonderful house wine and a generous menu of half price appetizers. they have a "dine and eat out" program - make certain you join.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMI always come here to celebrateI always come here to celebrate a special occasion because the service and food is top notch. It's a little noisy so don't expect to have an intimate conversation without the next table overhearing your conversation.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, view, and FoodMy husband and I have been to Stanley's several times over the years, for anniversary dinners and simple nights for a good happy hour. We are NEVER disappointed!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMStanley & Seafort's - Tacoma must!We came especially for the Century of Port flight (10, 20, 30, 40 year old Taylor Fladgate), after having had that experience at Simon & Seafort's in Anchorage. We were truly not disappointed, as both our server and Scott, the magic behind the bar, bent over backwards to explain the port and help us understand the differences in those two experiences. The port flight was dessert, so I have to speak to the rest of the meal as well: British Columbia salmon stuffed with crab and served over garlic smashed Yukon Gold potatoes and steamed green beans...just perfect with the Sonoma Cutrer Chardonnay we paired with it. Stanley & Seafort's is now our "must do" restaurant when we are in Tacoma.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific dining experienceWhat a fantastic dining experience-delicious, beautifully presented, and interesting.

The service was fantastic and the food was delicious. I had the Lobster Bisque; it was without a doubt the best lobster bisque I have ever had.

Our waiter had a great feel for when we needed something, and when we needed to be left alone. Great personality. Our meals were fantastic. Lots of us joined the "empty plate" club. And the complimentary birthday dessert was fabulous. Never a huge fan of creme brulee, but I'd order it at Stanley & Seafort's. Just a super dining experience!!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMI's always a great place toI's always a great place to eat.

Had a window table with a glorious view of Tacoma and the bay. The service was wonderful. The food was just mouth warteringly splendid, especially the spaghetti bolognese. The creme brule` birthday desert provided by S & S with it's side of fresh fruit and whipped cream was the perfect palate pleaser to top off a wonderful meal. S & S is the best!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for our 10 year weddingWe went for our 10 year wedding anniversary and it was a perfect evening. Our server-in-training was not pushy or annoying. She made excellent recommendations and was very sweet and helpful. The food was excellent and everything arrived within the right time of each other. Just from casual observing I saw how helpful the staff was to each other and how professional they were within eye and earshot of a customer. It was a perfect evening and I cannot wait to go back.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMStanley & Seafort's is a TacomaStanley & Seafort's is a Tacoma icon and one that we looked forward to trying.

I ordered a salad trio that has not been on the menu for years and they accommodated my request. The service is consistently great. I've been going to Stanley and Seaforts ever since it opened for lunch or dinner. We've also been here with a large group and, again, great service and great food.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMNice dinner at Stanley & SeafortsHad a very nice dinner for 6 adults on a Monday evening in March.
The food was great (but not cheap), the service was good and the view was great. I think they could have cleared the empty plates a bit sooner but other than that it was a very enjoyable evening.
The per-glass wine can be expensive so check prices carefully before ordering.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFrom the moment we came inFrom the moment we came in the door we were treated with first class. It was my mothers 80th birthday and our waiter made her feel very special. Actually treated her like the queen she is!!

You are our favorite restaurant in the South Sound!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Experience.The food in my opinion was perfect. From the apptizer crab dip to the chocolate cake dessert. The food was very flavorful, and was served with a luxurious presentation. I had the prime rib on this particular night, which was in my opinion, perfect, but I can't go on without mentioning the lobster bisque...I was saddened when the bottom of the dish was visible. Haha. All in all, it was a wonderful experience. Upon entering, the staff catered to us with a sense of urgency and quickly showed us to our table which was already waiting by the big beautiful windows. All staff members greeted us in a very pleasant manner while allowing a certain space, we both felt like special guests. The bar fulfilled our needs with my favorite scotch and port.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was great exceptEverything was great except I found the fish and chips too bready.

I probably would never go back on a Sunday because of this, which is too bad because Sunday is sometimes the only night my husband and I can go out to dinner.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe hadn't been back in aboutWe hadn't been back in about 20 years due to distance and busy schedules and we decided to just bite the bullet and go since we loved it the first time.

However, we were seated in an area that was a little dark so it was hard to see the food, and the acoustics made it difficult to hear the conversation between the members of our party.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
