  • "All four of us ordered prime rib and it was not up to Stanley's usual, which used to be the best in T town"
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "...so happy that the meatloaf is back on the menu. It should be a standard menu item."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "I highly recommend the smoked steak. It has the most amazing flavor! Great place for birthdays and anniversaries too since they serve complimentary burnt cream. Absolutely delicious!"

  • "I have been passing by Stanley & Seafort's for decades when driving on Interstate #5 and have always thought what a great dining experience that would and will have to try it sometime. I finally made reservations in celebration of a friends birthday. I was not dissappointed. It's a perfect place to celebrate special occasions. Nice variety of menu items at reasonable prices. Food was good and our server delightful. And of course the view - spectacular!"

  • "Made reservations for dining room but when we arrived there was a nice 4 seat bar seat with a view. We opted to dine there and have fun with our friends. the scenic view was perfect."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "It was my first time there and my date and I had a great time. The food was excellent and the view was amazing. The service was very good and our tea glasses were kept filled. I definitely would recommend this place to anyone. The cost of the meal is a little pricey but well worth it. Great for a first date, anniversary, birthday or just because your hungry."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "I love the scenic view and my prime rib but my vegetables were maybe cooked for 30 seconds. The service was great and they gave us a free dessert."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "We love Stanley & Seaforts, we've been coming for a few years and it's become our go-to for birthdays or other special occasions. Sometimes there is no occasion, we are just craving the never-miss prime rib or fish entrees!"
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "Went in for our anniversary, the waitress was so attentive, since this was our first time there she went over a few popular dishes and drinks with us which was a nice touch.. we had the rock salt prime rib and the seafood etouffee super yummy!"
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "Went here for anniversary dinner, server was very helpful attentive and welcoming. Food was very delicious and received a free creme Brule dessert to share for anniversary. Amazing view of Tacoma and sound. Great dining experience."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "This is my 3rd time at this resturant and everytime is great this time especially. My mom was in from Ohio and we had a great time from the drinks to the food to the waitress (Melissa) to the Deseret and all over experience. I will definitely be going back."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Prefer window seating next time not in the middle of the room next to the stairs."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Beautiful view of Tacoma! The room a little dark and cold. The food is good not outstanding."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Waiter was attentive but not intrusive and was very professional. Host staff was busy on the phone so another hostess/floor manager stepped right up to seat us. My husband ordered a crusted chicken dish and unfortunately was served a visibly (after he cut into it & ate the first bite) raw piece. We were celebrating his birthday and this was not a good start to the celebration. It was replaced immediately but unfortunately within 30 minutes we were home as he was suffering with intestinal distress from the chicken. Use of a food thermometer on each plate would be helpful."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "I've been here at least 50 times and usually get good food and service. Food was good as usual but the Server definitely made the experience one that I nor my girlfriend did not enjoy to say the least. We ate in the bar as there were many open tables with views available. He gave all canned responses and tried to oversell everything. Very condescending responses as well on occasion. We always strive to be super nice to servers so it wasn't him being rude due to us. We were excited to be there to celebrate a birthday but he made the whole thing unpleasant. Service speed was good. I might go back to Stanley's, but will request a different server if need be. That being said the clam chowder was AMAZING!"
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "The View of the city was outstanding, the wait staff was very pleasant. Loved the early bird dinner menu the bacon wrapped meatloaf was outstanding and as well as the Key lime pie. The restaurant was very clean and quiet no screaming kids. Andi was a very outstanding waitress and very friendly."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "Got to admit that it has been a number of years since my last visit to Stanley & Seaforts but it is still one of the finest restaurants in the Tacoma area. Great food and great friendly service."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "My wife an I have been to Stanley & Seaforts on 3 prior occasions with a pretty good experience. We decided to take my parents and my daughter who was celebrating her 21st birthday. We were not very impressed this time. The service seemed slow and my steak was way over cooked then way under cooked. I finally gave up and just took the steak home and cooked it the rest of the way. They were apologetic and also removed it from our tab which was approaching $400 for 6 people with 2 non drinkers. However the damage was done and the evening wasn't quite what we had planned. When you pay over $40 for a steak you expect it to be cooked correctly. Probably won't go back when there are so many choices."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "The Prime Rib was excellent, the Rock salt based rib added great flavor and the meat was cooked properly. Service was a attentive and flexible."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "I've been a customer at Stanley & Seaforts for nearly 30 years! The food is consistently good. The wait staff are always courteous and helpful. Some of the staff have there since I started dining here! That is telling of a great establishment. I have also been here with large groups for birthdays and to celebrate New Year's Eve. This place is classy! Oh, I forgot to mention the excellent views."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "The servers assisted in accommodating all special requests. The food was, as usual, very good."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "Stunning location and meal overall. Great service. Our 12 year old couldn't possibly finish the Kids Menu pasta. Imagine younger kids wouldn't be at SF, but if they are, one item would be plenty to feed 2 younger kids."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "The view of Tacoma is outstanding especially in the summer. The staff is friendly and efficient but not pushy. Finally the food presentation and taste is fantastic. Yes the price is higher than a casual dining restaurant but you do get what you pay for and you will be nicely rewarded here."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "I have always enjoyed Stanley and Seaforths but my meal was dry and unappetizing. It looked like it had sit under the lights too long."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "In 20+ years of marriage, Stanley's of Tacoma has always been our special occassion destination. At one time, the only premier restaurant in town, Tacoma now has several choices of which Stanley's remains among the top. Nice bar for pre-dinner drinks & appetizers, great views & service and very good food."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "terriable. over priced, very small portions, not great food-in fact very sub par,noisey,for a special dining experience that we were looking forward to- it was a total flop!"
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "For truly remarkable gatherings, there is only one place for us in the south Puget Sound region for dinner, and that is Stanley and Seafort's. The staff, from the front door to the bar, to our server and other staff who came by to acknowledge our guest of honor, were infused with the same goodness their food is famous for. We started out with fresh oysters on the half shell and moved into salads, then the main course. I had seared seafood linguine - OMG! Others had Prime Rib - it was remarkable, and one guest had the seafood combo salad that could have been the best meal of the night. We shared a couple of deserts and topped everything off with a signature chocolate martini. OK, we indulged. The view that night was colorfully stupendous."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "We were looking forward to a fish dinner, and discovered many dishes had scallops or scallops in the sauce. Since I'm very allergic I discussed with the waiter. They had no trouble accommodating and the result was I was able to relax and very much enjoyed my altered meal. Hubby also enjoyed his. Liked the Spanish soup. Service was excellent."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Always love the service and how special all your staff make each and every guest feel! We had a great brunch on Father's day and a really nice First Seating Dinner on 7-20-14. Our favorites are always the Pea Salad and the Burnt Cream...and even the moderately priced steaks melt in your mouth. There is a wide and varied menu, so definitely want to go more often to try more dishes. Our only complaint came from one of our party that had the Halibut Cheeks.They seemed to be breaded and deep fried....not what we would have expected. They are so delicate and generally very expensive and only available for a short season......she would have preferred a more delicate style of prep....say sauteed or lightly seasoned and grilled?"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "The staff was very pleasant, our waitress was exceptional. The food was awesome, I wanted to kiss the chefs!! The atmosphere was romantic, not a bad seat in the house. The complementary birthday dessert was very sweet. We had a super time and plan to do it again! Totally going to check out happy hour sometime."
    Dined on 7/19/2014

  • "There were four of us, no alcohol purchased, and the bill was pricey. The food, as always, was very good. The veggies were excellent. The Early Dining is a good value, compared to the ala carte prices. The pea salad is outstanding!! Service was outstanding!!"
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Stanley and Seaforts has been my favorite restaurant for years. But I fell that on this visit the food fell well short of their usual excellence. Everyone in our party was a little disappointed in their food.....my prime rib did not have the usual excellent seasoning, salt and flavor; my granddaughters filet was over cooked; my friends mushroom ravioli did not have much flavor, etc. On the plus side, the service was excellent; the view stupendous and the mimosas were great."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
