    What a wonderful experience we had celebrating our 35th anniversary. We sat outside on the terrace looking out on the spectacular view of Tacoma. The weather was just right (August 15th); not too cold, not too hot, not too breezy, not too sunny! From our drinks, to our appetizer (calamari with artichokes), to our entrées (almond-crusted scallops and Alaskan halibut) to our surprise Happy Anniversary crème brûlée - it was all sheer perfection! Serenity was very pleasant as she waited on us; attentive without being intrusive.

    The food was not as good as it was the last time I visited. My halibut was over cooked and the garnish/sauce was not great. We were a party of 8 and 3 of our party didn’t get their food until the rest of us were almost done eating. Also, the sauce was missing from one of the dishes that did come out. The waitress didn’t apologize; just said they told her they were coming right behind her with the other dishes so she’d go check on them. It was definitely an overpriced, disappointing evening.

    Overall the experience was good. I had Mahi Mahi blackened but it came to the table more like a pan seared than blackened. Still, flavor was good so I kept it. The service was a bit lacking. Had an empty water glass for over 5 minutes before I could stop our server and ask for a refill. Seems like they would have someone just designated to refill waters, especially if its busy. Overall a good time but probably not our first choice for our next special occasion.

    A wonderful dining experience served to us by a waiter who knew how to make his customers happy! From the appetizer, to the drinks and wine selection, and then the dinner - all was fabulous. To top things off we were served a wonderful desert, on the house, to help us celebrate our 20th anniversary. The ambiance and view from our window front table helped make this one of the best dining experiences we've had this year.

    We went here with reservations at 7:15 pm. My husband tried to check about five minutes earlier and was told we would be seated closer to the time. We stood at the lobby until about 7:30 pm and I inquired as ti when we’d be seated. it seems that they forgot about us waiting. we were offered seating in the bar area which was fine. The food was ok, not mind blowing. We ordered oysters as one of our apps - the sampler one was great. A little aggressive on the wasabi for the coconut prawns dipping sauce. For the oysters, a little underwhelming on the presentation. I thought my prime rib looked unappetizing but tasted just fine. One of the member of our party had to send her steak back twice since it was really undercooked. We still felt it was still undercooked and would have sent it back a third time but just didn’t bother. The manager brought the food out which is great but no offer to take a drink or app off the bill. I usually see this with higher end establishments. Dessert was great. Service was great. I don’t know if I’d come back again though.

    This is a tired restaurant in desperate need of overhaul. The menu was reasonably broad to please any palate but unfortunately the end product didn't make the grade. Filet was dry and definitely not worth the $54 price tag. Ribeye got low grades as well and asperagus on each plate was over-cooked. The highlight of the food however was the Pt Reyes Bleu Cheese Salad. We all enjoyed it immensely. High Fives to our server, Scott, for his great service! Final grade was a C- from all in our party of 5. Our recomendation is: AVOID.

    Food was not up to par for the price. My husband had to change his order three times because they were out of the first two he ordered. Another person in our party ordered her prime rib medium rare. However, it came extremely rare and the mashed potatoes had a hard crust on them from being under a heat lamp too long. The only positive thing was our server. He was friendly, funny, attentive and concerned. Used to eat here a lot years ago and miss the great food they served then.

    We requested a cake in advance to celebrate my son’s wedding. It appeared upon arrival that no one read this request until then, where the hostess said “we don’t do that and do not have cake” We frequent nice restaurants all the time and even if they “don’t to that” or make cake they usually will offer something else, not here. Secondly, we asked if we could get a window table with a view. She said well, we seat people wherever we have available at the time all parties are present, so we’ll see what we have at that time. We did not get a window table, but did receive a decent table with a view. Our waiter was pleasant until he was taken away to help at the bar, and then it was adhoc on whomever was available to see if we needed more water or anything. The food was good and we enjoyed our meals. We have dined here in the past and had wonderful experiences, it just this time we felt unappreciated.

    We continue to come back here because the food is always so amazing, the staff is always very nice even if they’re new, if they’re experienced they’re so educated about the food, and the view and ambiance of the restaurant is just perfect. On top of all of that, it’s actually affordable which makes it perfect for any night out. Definitely recommend

    Service was slow. Appetizer dishes, plates and silverware was never cleared before the entree arrived. No new silverware was provided. Steak knives were brought after the prime rib that three guests ordered. Had to ask the server to clear all the dishes at least 15 minutes after everyone in our party was finished eating and one dessert menu was provided. Understanding staffing can be an issue during threes crazy times, but Stanley and Seaforts is a higher end restaurant and should be prepared. The restaurant was only (estimated) 65% filled. Food was excellent however.

    Celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary here and it did not disappoint. We were immediately greeted and congratulated on our anniversary. Seated within 5 minutes, amazing hostess ( older gal with blonde hair, apologies not no remember her name) she was incredibly warm and inviting and seated us. Within 1 minute of being seated our waitress Tony greeted us. Immediately took our drink order, constantly refilling our waters and checking in with us. The whole restaurant was packed & to be expected with how beautifully hot it was but that had no impact on our experience. Our food was INCREDIBLE. My goodness. They even gave us complimentary crème brûlée for the occasion and it was so sweet and thoughtful. I can’t rave enough about Tony! My husband and I have not had that kind of service in yearrrrs. We kind of just made peace with the fact good customer service is a dying art but man, she restored it! I just felt so bad when we walked by the kitchen in order to exit the restaurant, it was soo stinking hot and I just felt terrible for the kitchen staff. It was 100 degrees outside but it felt almost hotter inside. I never take time for reviews but I truly do feel Tony needs and deserves to be mentioned and recognized for her amazing service!

    Boyfriend’s birthday, his mom, and girlfriend (me). We were early for our reservation and hostess offered us Happy Hour seating in bar. Helped us with moving drinks to dining table. Eric was our friendly server who took excellent care of us from appetizer through dessert. Our food was delicious. We will definitely be back when we visit again from Oregon.
