    We arrived on a rainy night and the valet had an open umbrella ready for us as we got out of the car. We were greeted by the hostess and escorted to our window table. Our waiter gave us the menu and answered our questions about various items. The cocktails, dinners and dessert were outstanding as was the service.

    Service and ambiance were outstanding. Almost everyone 4/5 ordered the prime rib which was great but the one who didn't got the Mahi Mahi special and said it was a little dry and lacked great flavor. I would not hold back recommending this place to anyone.

    When our server first came to the table, he obviously had been smoking and it was nauseating, to say the very least. Your smoking employees should clean their mouths before talking directly to your customer/s or keep smoking employees in the back room where they only offend other employees and are not offending your customers.....

    The Oysters Rockefeller were delicious and the highlight of the meal for me. My husband had the prime rib and I had the flat iron with crab cakes meal. I was glad to find out they also had a kids meal. We all enjoyed our meals. The meats were very tender and perfectly cooked. The risotto had a great flavor too. The place was super busy on Saturday night and so the service was lacking. Our meal was slow to arrive and I noticed the table next to us didn't get the salad they had ordered.

    We recently celebrated our wedding anniversary there. It was our first time and we had the best food and experience from start to finish. Our waitress had been there for years and she was knowledgeable and helpful. The view was beautiful too! We have already recommended all our friends and family to visit.

    We have come to your restaurant many times, and will definately come again. The drinks and starters were great. The chef must have been having a slightly off night. Both lobster were edible but a little undercooked. Had a funny texture but tasted ok. The steaks accompanying them just weren't up to normal tenderness that we usually have from you. Garnishes were wonderful. Didn't want to complain to waitress, she was wonderful and we weren't really wanting to send three of the 4 entrees back while one person who had a wonderful as usual meal remained eating. Was a good visit, just not the usual great.

    Been coming here since I was a kid for over 30 years. This place is classic American food at it's finest. You don't come for small plates. You come here for the like-butter-in-my-mouth, Stanley Size, Rock Salt Crusted, Prime Rib. Don't forget the Crab-Artichoke Dip, Steamer Clams, Clam Chowder, Rockfish or Salmon (for the seafood lovers), Chocolate Cake & Warm Fruit Cobbler. Steelhead is a must when they have it too! I live in Seattle & dine at all the hot spots. However, when I want some classic steak & seafood, with a mindblowing view & want to get out of Seattle, I make the trek to T-town. Wear a sweater though; always a bit chilly in the dining room.

    This was previously our favorite restaurant, but this time did not live up to expectations. We were celebrating our first wedding anniversary, but the waiter didn't bother to ask even after our telling the hostess about our special occasion. The food was not good. The prime rib was not seasoned well, and the sirloin had too smokey a flavor and it came already sliced in small pieces which made it dry. Who does that? We only had water but never got a refill until the end of the meal. And bread was not brought to our table until our salads were finished. Overall, it was a very disappointing experience.

    We celebrated my husband's 40th Birthday last week and it was our first visit to Stanley & Seafort's. The View and ambiance were spectacular. Our reservation was for peak time Friday night so each course did take an extra long time to arrive. The Manager did make it up to us with an extra dessert. Overall our Special Night was memorable.

    I have been coming to this place on and off for 30 years; it used to be a sure bet that you would get great food and good service along with that gorgeous view. Two of us ordered the grilled king salmon with coconut rice and a vegetable medley. The fish did not look like King Salmon, if I had to guess I would say it was the Steelhead (which is fine, but not what I ordered); the fish appeared and tasted steamed, not grilled; and my vegetable medley had a blob of mashed potato in it (entirely edible but shows lack of precision in the kitchen). The lack of a table cloth detracted from the experience further. Had some problems with our drink order as well. Dessert, however, was exceptional. Kudos to the dessert crew.

    Great restraunt, but they steak(new York strip) I had lacked flavor. Was cooked to as requested but tasted as they cut it off the cow and did nothing else to it. Left me wanting steak sauce. Would not recommend this restraunt for steak, but everything else we ate was great. Service was great. The valet driver had our car running when we left and had heated seats on.

    This restaurant hasn't changed it's menu since the 80's. The food is the same but it just doesn't taste as good because it's so hum drum. Even the old "standby's"... like chicken or fish taste bland. (or dry) Service is slow even when they're not busy. The setting is very nice but everything else is a fail.

    A very disappointing experience was had by all 6 persons in our group. The food was sent back to the kitchen by two in our party. I actually sent mine back twice. In all cases the sides were cold and not one person had a satisfactory meal. McDonalds would have been an upgrade.

    A dining experience is not complete without top notch service any you get that and more at Stanley and Seaforts. Service is stellar! We began our evening seated in the bar prior to our reservation time. Our waitress whose name I did not get couldn't have been any more accommodating. When she discovered we were celebrating our anniversary she made sure we were moved to a window seat in the bar and asked if we would like to enjoy dinner there instead of moving to the restaurant. The view was so lovely we stayed put! We were able to take advantage of happy hour prices for our appetizers and drinks and followed up with a scrumptious dinner. For a special occasion or just a quick happy hour bite you can't go wrong with Stanley and Seaforts.

    Overall the food was very good and the service was excellent. We were very well taken care of during our wait for a table and our wait staff was polite, fun and attentive. My only disappointment was that I had put in the notes that this was a special occasion and I preferred a view table - arriving, we were placed against the far back wall - not what I expected.

    The restaurant itself has a wonderful view. I've been both during day and into the evening. The lights of the city at night are just beautiful and very romantic ~ my favorite time to go. I had a house scratch margarita and it was very good! For my most recent meal, I had the Roasted Chicken Dijon, which I thought was mediocre.

    This has always been our favorite restaurant, but the past few times we've been in they seemed to be struggling with the food being great. This visit restored our faith! Two things should be noted - sitting by the window, there was no room to move because they have people packed in like sardines. In fact my daughter coming back from the restroom had her hand smashed getting to her seat because the chairs are all so close. The other is the water temperature in the bathrooms. In both the mens and women's bathrooms we got burned by the scalding water.
