The drinks are great! Love the key lime pie! The crab is so good. Wish the tables for two were a little bigger.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food and ServiceThis was the 2nd time I have been there, although the last time was for lunch. We were 7 in the group and had a great time. The reservations were for 7 pm but we had to wait for 20 min to get seated. It was a business meeting so it made things slightly uncomfortable. Other than that everything was great!5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMYou cant go wrong!My husband and I have been going to Stanley & Seaforts for years and never have been disappointed with any one thing ever. The food is outstanding, we've never had anything that doesn't taste very good from the appetizers to the main meal. My husband states that the prime rib is to die for. The best service you could ask for, never rushed, you have time to enjoy your meal and the view which is also outstanding. You look out over Tacoma, the harbor and the water that lead into the Straights, If you go before dark you get to watch the city and surrounding area change into all kinds of lights, it's beautiful!5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversay DinnerWe like this restaurant for special occasions since it has a nice blend of the qualities that make dining out enjoyable - great food, great service, great view, and not too hard on the pocketbook. The staff at this particular restaurant seems to go out of their way to make you feel welcome.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat views and grest food!Wonderful view of the Foss water way. The selections on the menu would make everyone in your party happy. Our waiter was outstanding, he took excellent care of us the whole time. The manager was on the floor attending to customers and making sure everyone was having a memorable experience. The hostess even remembered it was our anniversary as we left. Would recommend to anyone!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent on the Run!!We were headed to a Concert @ the Tacoma Dome, had reservations and we were late, and they held our seats!! Service was VERY busy (a GOOD sign) but efficient! Friendly Staff & Wait person(s)! We will come again when not in such a rush!! Lovely view of Tacoma!!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Perfect Concert Pre-Func Place!My husband and I came here before the Fleetwood Mac concert on Monday evening. This has always been one of our favorite places and once again, they did not disappoint. We had reservations for 6:45, but got there early and were able to find a table in the bar without too much trouble. The crab cakes I had were delicious and full of big chunks of crab - just like they should be. Even though they were crazy busy with the pre-concert crowd, the service was still very good, and the wait staff friendly. My only regret was my poor choice in shoes, for the walk up and down the hill to the Tacoma Dome. It's not a long walk, but would have been made much easier without the high heels I had on that evening. :-)5/20/2013 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 AMExcellently 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 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 AMPoorly prepared foodFish and chips soaked in grease not crunchy.
Scrambled seafood scramble horrible ,raw eggs ,tasteless.
NEVER TO RETURN!!!!!!!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 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 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 AMGreat dinnerOur favorite restaurant for special occasions. Great variety on the menu and always excellent service and food.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 AMNice for a special ocassionIf you are going for a special ocassion and know you will be paying alot of money for not much food, then this is a neat place with excellent service and a nice view. The portions are small, especially their large sampler appetizer(almost 40 bucks and not much on the plate for everyone to share). The food is good, well prepared and seasoned, just not much of it. I guess it must be for people on diets, or dainty eaters. Our waiter was excellent, quick and at the ready with more water, etc. if needed and very professional. Might go back in 5 years for the next special ocassion?4/30/2013 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 setting and view were fabulous. Our server was attentive and very skillful. Thank you!!!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for Date nightMy new favortie restaurant in Tacoma.

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. Yes, it is slightly pricey but well worth every penney.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMNot only were our meals wonderful,Not only were our meals wonderful, the service was super! 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.

Unfortunately she did not like.

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 AM
