    2nd time dining here. Both times service and food were exceptional. Had filet mignon the 1st time and veal chop the 2nd. Both meals were exceptional. This restaurant is part of the restored National Hotel in Jackson, Ca. The attention to detail both in the hotel and restaurant are worthwhile checking out. You won't be disappointed.

    The outstanding gem in this gold country location. Food is prepared with imagination and flavors from local vendors as much as possible. Service is friendly and attentive without "hovering". The bar staff is extremely knowledgeable and friendly . Locals describe this as quality in a beautiful location. I will return often.

    Definitely a fine dining establishment. Very expensive but the service, food and wine were all excellent. I would definitely recommend this place for dinner. Enjoyed the bar as well. Went upstairs to check out the lobby. Simply beautiful. Nothing like what the hotel used to be in its rowdy days back in the seventies when we spent New Year's Eve many times. Also would stop for a drink in the afternoon when we were exploring the foothills with my husband's parents. His father knew all the bars and taverns east of Stockton and had lots of stories to share.

    Had a great experience since we were not sure what to expect. We had a very good lunch in the afternoon, followed up by a wonderful dinner in the evening. May be a bit pricey, but well worth it, especially for a special occasion. The service was very good, friendly, helpful but not intrusive. Overall, a great dining experience and we definitely will be returning for more delicious meals.

    We went to Stanley's Steakhouse to kick off my month of birthday celebrations. Chef Dan Moore has really put his stamp on the menu, everything was inventive, expertly prepared and beautifully presented. Our server Alicia was quite happy to run through a special selection of beers that their cicerone Tracy had laid out for my enjoyment. My wife and I both thought the mushroom bruschetta was one of the best dishes we've ever had. Our steaks were delicious and cooked to perfection, and the desserts were just wonderful. All in all a five star experience!

    Not a huge menu but superb attention to each item on the menu. The menu changes with what is in season and available locally which makes repeat visits something different every time. The one thing that doesn't change is the top quality steaks....the newyork and the ribeye are very hard to beat anywhere.

    We came to Stanley's on the recommendation of my sister and her husband (who are both foodies), and we were not disappointed. Located in the basement of the newly renovated National Hotel, this restaurant is truly a find. The executive chef is top notch, and has put together a truly stunning menu. Everything we ordered was fantastic – I had the chicken, which was the best I have had outside of Paris, and my husband had the New York steak, which was amazing. The chicken radicchio cups are a fabulous starter, with well-matched flavours and a sauce with just the right amount of zip. Save room for coffee and dessert- both are divine. We will most certainly be back...probably adding a stay at the gorgeously restored hotel when we return.

    On the day we arrived, We had afternoon drinks in the warmly decorated and welcoming bar. Fabulous bartender. When it come to dinner, the menu varies with seasonally available ingredients. We had the filet mignon and gried pork chop. Bother were above expectations. Subtle flavors in everything from the meat to the veggies were excellent! Nothing was ignored. My only very minor complaint was the Parmesan breadsticks on my Cesar salad seamed a bit stale. However the salad dressing is phenomenal!! Recommend this restaurant HIGHLY! As a side note; we mentioned we were on a photography trip and asked for suggested photo spots. The hostess (who is a photograph also) took the time to not only come speak with us, but wrote a list of must shoots!

    Had reservations for 6:00pm for 2. Met up with some friends and had them join us table for 6. There was only 3 other tables filled at this point. We saw 5 different tables sit down after us order their dinner, eat have coffee and them leave before we got our dinner even before we got our salads. It took about 1 hour just to get our salads. We got our dinner served at 7:30pm. This whole 2hrs they kept saying sorry it will be right up. We had plans that started at 8:00pm we had to eat our food so fast it wasn't funny. Food was GREAT. But the whole service aspect very poor!

    We have dined at Stanley's twice now, and both times have had fantastic meals. Full disclosure... I am a vegetarian so eating at a steakhouse may not appear to be the best plan, but the wait staff and the chef accommodated my needs perfectly on both occasions. On our first visit, the chef came to the table to suggest an entree which took full advantage of locally grown produce to create a wonderful pasta dish. For our most recent visit, our waiter consulted the chef to come up with an outstanding grilled tofu entree over a combination Lyonniase potato and sun-dried tomato, and a delicate squash and mushroom foundation. The result was unbelievable. (For the more traditional, my wife had a remarkable filet mignon). A great, great meal.

    My wife and I went for our 30th wedding anniversary. We sat outside and our server brought us two glasses of complimentary Champagne which was very good. Food was outstanding except they forgot to bring us our salad. We were ok with that as our appetizer which was a mushroom bruchetta was outstanding and filling. Our steaks were great she had the Bearnaise and I had the Porcini Mushroom sauce. My sauteed spinach was fantastic. totally would recommend and my guess is they will tighten up the service aspect.

    I heard this place was recently renovated - it's really lovely. Got a nice table in front of the fireplace; the space was large but tables spread out so you still feel like you have your own environment. Brunch was consistently good, prices reasonable, and the dining pace was leisurely, creating a nice experience for Father's Day. My coffee was constantly refilled (thanks!). Some not-so-ordinary items on the menu: lemon crepes! banana french toast! Mushroom quiche! My dad is 95 and the ramp at the back made easy access for him. Next time I want a special meal in the area, I will book a reservation here.

  • Continues to Delight Every Visit
    AmadorDinerVIP
    Dined on 4/16/2014
    It's hard not to order a steak during each visit to Stanley's Steakhouse. They are probably not just the best in Amador, but would rival most steakhouses in Northern California. So steaks it was, but with each visit Chef Daniel continues to offers delightful new options in appetizers and presentations. We were wowed with the Grilled Pork Belly appetizer with the light and fluffy panko crusted soft boiled egg as part of the platter. We were perplexed at how they could do that. The smoked sturgeon was just as special and scrumptious. The staff manages to balance attentiveness with privacy that was perfect for our anniversary celebration. The lemon tart was a wonderful way to end the evening.

    We are here visiting, and decided to celebrate my husbands birthday at Stanley's and we were very much surprised at how beautiful and quiet it was, especially for such a special occasion. Our dinner was delicious, but we were very disappointed in our dessert. We ordered the Meyer lemon tart, and I believe the crust was raw. I always thought the crust should be cooked and crispy, not cold and gummy. I had told them it was my husbands birthday, and most restaurants would offer a free dessert, but they did not. We would go back on our next visit, just won't order dessert.
