The waiter was very nice and took care of us the best that he could given the fact that it was Valentine’s Day. We waited for over an hour for our food. Once we got our food it was barely warm and wasn’t very good at all. No impressed with the food or the wait time

Never fails to satisfy. Bar is excellent and I always look forward to eating there. Menu leans toward burgers and salads but has more formal fare as well. Salmon is great when they have it.

Even though we made a reservation for 6:30, we still had to wait an hour to be seated. The hostess was not apologetic at all. What is the point of making a reservation?

Amazing and comfortable atmosphere. The mojitos were to die for. The rib eye steak was so tender and full of flavor. The fried brussel sprouts are a must. I cant wait to go back.

Good food, great server, nice atmosphere. We were there on a Sunday evening and it was relatively quiet. It can get noisier with larger crowds which is to be expected. Overall, this is still a nice place to eat and drink.

One of the few places left to get a great steak. We were seated right away, and our server gave us just enough attention throughout the meal, that we could visit with friends. The food was awesome. The only thing we commented on was that the noise level had gone up with no barriers between the rows. But all in all we will return with other family or friends.

Seems to have stepped down a notch since the last time I was here. I love going to Stanford's, but seems to have changed... Can't pinpoint what or why. Maybe it's the migration to the new management company. I liked my Spinach Salad with Salmon, however the piece of Salmon was really small! The onion rings were really good. Everyone else in the group seemed to enjoy their meals. KM

I really only went there because I had a gift card from a year ago. The wait person gave me a funny look when I handed her the GC. She explained that the GC might not be good since there was some sort of bankruptcy/buyout last July and certain cards might only work at certain Stanford's?!? Luckily the GC still had its value and everything was great. Oh, the food was fine.

The food was bad and service was super slow. The prime rib was of low quality and not cooked right. The service was almost nonexistent.

Service was outstanding but sorry to say the food was really not great, particularly for the price. We had “surf and turf” for $36 and the steak was tough, shrimp inedible and asparagus grilled to the consistency of a bamboo stalk! Pretty disappointing for a special occasion. Oh and all was served cold. Not a great experience.

Service and food were good. We had an issue with a gift card due to the changes from RU Restaurant ownership. We chose to have lunch there because we thought we had until the end of December to use the gift card. We don't feel that those changes re: new ownership and rewards programs have been communicated well to patrons.

A little on the pricey side, but the food was excellent, the wine was excellent, it was calm and quiet, and it was comfortable. The decore is nice, modern but relaxing. I wouldn't go here every day, but it will be my go to when I need a calm, relaxing treat. It's like the meal version of a spa day.

We love coming to Stanfords but this time the buffet food was disappointing. It was mostly lukewarm or cold and should have been hot. By 5 you ran out of cranberry sauce. The selection was good. For dessert the pie and pumpkin cheesecake were good. The tarts were all crust and very little filling. Don't do them again. The wait person forgot the wine order and we had to ask again. A very mixed bag and if we ever do this again I will not choose the buffet. Thanks for asking.

The restaurant did not have our reservation for Thanksgiving. Luckily they were still able to promptly seat us. The Thanksgiving buffet was fully stocked and very good food. Well worth the price and would do again.

Today was Thanksgiving. Stanford’s offered a lovely buffet with Ham, Turkey and all the trimmings. As well, there was a limited plated dinner menu. So, while one of us visited the traditional Thanksgiving Dinner buffet, the other two enjoyed Panko Chicken Dijon and an incredibly tender Beef Filet. We all were very happy with our meals. Our waiter was attentive and efficient, and the setting was warm and pleasant. It was a very Happy Thanksgiving for our family. Thanks!

Our server seemed to be friendly and present when we first arrived and when we were leaving. She never checked on us, not once, during our meal. As it turned out, the short ribs I ordered were horrible, all bone and fat. I had to work hard to get any meat off the bone. When our server finally appeared to bring our bill, we told her how disappointing the food was. She merely replied that those short ribs are known not to have much meat. We looked at her with a perplexing look wondering if that’s all she was going to say. She finally said she’d go talk to her manager. She came back and confirmed that style of ribs are not meaty, but if we want she’d remove it. Ummmm hello, yes please. I’m not paying for bones. She gave horrible service.

We had a reservation for 6 PM. We arrived at 5:55 and checked in with hostess. We were told to have a seat and they would be right with us. 15 minutes later we are still sitting. Other people are arriving without reservationa and are being told there is a 5 to 10 minute wait. Most of those are then seated before us. I finally asked a different hostess, that we had 6 PM reservation and how much longer it would be, she immediately looked us up in the system and seated us immediately. I had always thought when I take the time to plan and make a reservation, we would be treated as such. We were there to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary, you sure did not help start to make it special. The rest of the evening went well.

This was our first visit since the company, Restaurants Unlimited, went bankrupt and our first visit to Stanford's Clackamas in some years. The first thing we noticed was the new decor and redone benches because it seemed new, not like the rundown one in Jantzen Beach. I asked the waitress and she said it was like this when she started in January so it was done before they went under. The service from beginning to end was superb, some of the best we have had in any restaurant. The offerings were great. We both had salmon with two vegetables (no potato which we did not want) and the fish was perfectly prepared along with perfectly cooked especially the seasoned roasted cauliflower. We had a starter salad with our wine and a cheesecake with coffee. Everything was great. It was reminiscent of the early years at this restaurant before they were sold to RU.
