Everything was wonderful except one major thing. We asked for a gluten free menu, which they have available. We ordered something off of that menu and we questioned our waiter over whether what we received was truly gluten free, and were assured it was. My father has celiac disease, and contact with gluten at the very least makes him extremely sick. He was visiting from across the country, and this visit was ruined by him having to spend the last two days of it in bed unable to even walk around. After following up with the restaurant, it was discovered that the waiter rang his meal in incorrectly and my dad was served a plate containing a large amount of regular pasta. After discussing this, I was told that the chef would contact me directly to discuss how they could make it right. Several days later, I have still not heard from anyone at the restaurant.

An unexpected treasure!! Food was excellent...service was top notch! Our server Demetrius went above & beyond. Atmosphere was a lot nicer than expected (not casual, but we were accepted with open arms disputed being in very casual clothing). So happy we found this place. Will come back next time we are in town for sure! Highly recommended.

I ordered the chile rubbed pork belly eggs benedict. The first dish I got was cold. I asked the waiter if it could just be heated up, and he took it back and brought me a fresh one. It was still luke warm, and the pork belly had not flavor. The potatoes were seasoned with something that made them very bitter. I do have to say the 506 bloody cesar was amazing and is highly recommended. However, for the price, I feel that there are better options for food out there for the cost of meal.

The property was beautiful, the food was plentiful and very tasty. I wished they would have offered the lunch menu as well as the brunch menu but it was still very good. My friend and I were confused as to which door to use to enter so we went for the door with the "open" sign and we walked into a room with a large party seated. It looked like a brides maid luncheon but we quickly left that room and found a hallway that took us to the front entrance with a hostess that seated us right away. Our waiter was pleasant and attentive. Overall a nice visit with my friend.

My husband and I went here for our 15th anniversary. We arrived early to sit at the bar and have a drink (or two) before dinner. I tried the Jalapeno Mango Martini and the Blood Orange Bellatini. Both were very delicious. We then went in for dinner and since it was a Thursday night there were fewer patrons. The restaurant had saved us a cozy table in the window so we could look out (although it was dark so you couldn't see much past the porch). We had the lamb pop and brussel sprout appetizers, both were delicious. My husband who does not like brussel sprouts said if they always taste like this he would eat them all the time. We both had the ribeye and I asked for risotto instead of potatoes. We finished with some dessert and they gave us a complimentary glass of champagne to celebrate our anniversary. We did take plenty of food home as the portions were a good size.

If looking for a restaurant for a special occasion, this is one to try. I have been there for lunch too and that is also worth trying.

We always enjoy the Sanford for the tasty menu, ambiance, and service . The staff is well trained and it shows in their excellent service.
How I wish that when building this cozy spot more room was allowed between tables in order to add privacy and intimacy. It’s just way too crowded !!!!!
The lunch menu is a little limited. Would love to see a chicken salad not as a sandwich along with a fruit cup or pasta cup.
The crab cakes are excellent! Not heavy breading and great flavor.
The chocolate cake was too rich even for me and that is saying a lot. I wanted to exchange it for something else but didn’t feel comfortable doing so on a business lunch.

overall a very pleasant dinner, We were seated on time, and every course was timed good. Our server was always there at the right times. All the food was excellent, but I did order the steak medium and received a medium rare steak. Like most chefs they always assume I really did not want my steak medium and it would taste better medium rare. And like most chefs they are wrong, I really do like my steak medium. And I did not tell the server about this error, as that would have changed the atmosphere of our evening which was more important than this error.

We went to the Sanford house for their Valentines dinner. My husband and I had the same thing and we were so pleased with our choice. The spinach salad with a lovely light vinaigrette, delicious light a fluffy dinner rolls were a great start. The entree was a perfectly cooked tenderloin over mashed potatoes that had been crisped on a grill which held up the tenderloin, asparagus and carrots accompanied the meat and potatoes and a delicious sauce on the plate. The finale was a dark chocolate creme brûlée which was so decadent it will haunt my dreams of the perfect dessert! Well done Chef's well done!

My husband and I have brunch here every year as a Valentine's date for the last 4 years. It has always been nothing short of extraordinary, from the moment you walk in to the moment you leave. When the weather is cooperative, after brunch we get a drink from the bar and sit out in their beautiful courtyard and enjoy the scenery. I highly recommend this place!

I am a regular at the restaurant. I was truly most disappointed at this visit. We often found ourselves looking for the waiter. Most upsetting was the overly used amount of salt in the food it was almost inedible. That says a lock sitting I love my salt..
I'm willing based on past experiences to still recommend this restaurant however with caution.
The butternut squash soup was thick and came across as old and reheated.
Let's hope this was just one unusual case in the next visit is better.

Ok, we usually come for special occasions and have loved it every time we've come. But the food this time was mediocore. We were both disappointed. The food was warm and lacked flavor. We are hoping the next time we go it will be what we fell in love with. The bread pudding was not good either and we've had dessert before and we were very surprised as to how lack luster the whole meal was.
