Panco-crusted chicken is amazing, every time! Can’t beat steelhead with asparagus as our kid’s favorite meal, either 😄

We went for our 40 Wedding Anniversary and were treated exceptionally well. The wine offered was great by the wine goddess. Food great and got a quiet table just as I asked for. We will be back.

Server was rude, arrogant, unfriendly
Had to ask multi times to refill our water, disappeared at one point had to request someone else to attend to us. Never checked with us to see if anything needed
She needs to get more educated on customer service.

The quality of food has always exceeded my expectations. Tried the drink special and was not to my tasting. Stanford's happily exchanged for something else (no additional charge), much appreciated!

Table of 5, so seated in back. Our server was fabulous and organized. Food came out together and hot, which is not always the case with large parties. Stanford’s is always reliable for a good dining experience!

Such a wonderful time. This was a get together for sisters - a long time coming. Our waitress was Brandi. She was excellent. Her supervisor stopped by a few times -- wonderfully delightful! We enjoyed them both so much. Could not have been a better evening.

This was my first visit to a Stanford’s since a very disappointing visit to the Stanford’s in Walnut Creek, CA in April. The interior of the Walnut Creek facility is very time worn and dirty with small bits of trash on the very warn carpet in the lobby area. In that April visit the food arrived only slightly warm, obviously had little or no seasoning and was not nicely presented.

This visit to the Clackamas Stanford’s was completely different. Yes the interior theme is somewhat dated but the restaurant was clean and not heavily warn.

I ordered the fish and chips that were very nicely presented and very flavorful. The best part was that neither the fish fillets or the French fries were greasy, yet they were not too dry.

Our wait person was attentive and very patient with my 97 year old parents, providing very clear descriptions of menu items.

I will return to the Clackamas Stanford’s the next time I visit my parents. I will not be returning to the Walnut Creek Stanford’s.

My sister and her husband wanted to meet for lunch and were coming from another side of town. My hubby (whose birthday it was) and I had lunched at Stanford's before so we suggested Stanford's. Absolutely the best pick we could have done. They had a large dog with them, there was no shady parking, so Stanford's accommodated us at an outside patio table. They provided water for the dog, too! We ordered different items and everyone raved about the quality of the food. The Onion Rings were great..which we have found is NOT a common experience. The lentil soup was superior. My hubby has a tree nut allergy and the server was able to steer him clear of anything that might comprise him. All in all, the service was impeccable, the food awesome and the experience one we keep talking about! I might add my sister is somewhat of a foodie and each offering passed the taste test with flying colors. Will we be back? Not only "yes" ..but "HELL, YES"!

Date with my Granddaughter! We were not pressured to hurry or leave which was wonderful as we were able to visit and spend time planning a

Went for dinner on our final night in Portland. The service was awesome, food came out fast and was cooked perfectly. There were 5 in our party. NY Strip, Rib Eye, Prime Rib, Fish n Chips, and Shrimp & Lettuce roll ups, everyone was happy with their meal! Definitely recommend!

I doubt I will return to this restaurant. It seems that every time I eat here I leave disappointment. This time 4 of the 7 people in my party experienced stomach issues within a couple of hours after eating. In addition, the value just isn't there. I ordered a 7 oz steak which came with garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus. The steak may have been 7oz prior to cooking but it certainly was 7 oz cooked. The mashed potatoes had something else mixed in (maybe blue cheese or...?) that was disgusting. Steak was cooked correctly and the asparagus was good. Also ordered the Calamari appetizer which was expensive given the actual amount of Calamari served. The waitress was wonderful.

I do have concerns about the cleanliness of the kitchen.

We always enjoy Stanfords. The food is better than good, it’s fine dining at a reasonable price. It’s quiet but always busy. The staff is always happy, & very quick & polite. I don’t think I’ve had a bad experience at Stanfords. The only thing I might offer is that for the Easter brunch, they should consider adding roasted or fried potatoes to go with the bacon & eggs. Perhaps add celery to the Bloody Mary, skip the pepperoni, & use only small peppers. (Take a cue from Henry’s!) Happy experience as always.

Food was wonderful ! We all ordered off the brunch menu and loved the warm oozy cinnamon rolls. Our two college-age grandkids ate every bite, However my husband and I could only eat half our breakfast and are looking forward to the other half tonight.

Food was served quickly, and was DElicious. A noisy table next to us made it hard to hear voices at our own table at times, but it waa bearable. Our waiter was good and professional, but appeared to be stretched over tables far apart, so it was hard to catch his attention. Overall, we had great food and good service, which everyone expects and enjoys at Stanford's. Only recommended change; lower the price of food 10 ro 15%. Thanks.
