Food was great. Manager was up front when we got there bumped into my pregnant wife didn’t even say anything. Then I was talking to the front lady about my reservation and the manager lady was putting away the 40+ menus and like pushed me out of her way without even saying one word. Very rude! The waitress was very nice but also only checked on us one time and we waited about 15 mins after we had finished our meal to get a check. Very disappointed in the service. Especially when I wanted to just have a nice dinner date with my wife for Valentine’s Day. But food was great and prices are good for quality of food. Will not be going back to that location again.

Should have a children section. Screaming kids aren't enjoyable. The crab cake Appetizer took 25 min to get to our table and was nearly cold. Also very cold in the back where we were seated.

I made a reservation not knowing if it would be too busy for a drop in, our plans changed and we showed up 1 your early. The staff excepted the challenge and seated us right away with no problem. The host was accommodating and our waitress as outstanding! I ordered crab cakes for an appetizer and they were good however I do like that hem a little more spiced up. I had the local Columbia river steelhead atop a Romain Cesar salad which was incredible. If you are staying or are near the expo center/ PIR, I recommend this place for an enjoyable experience.

Atmosphere was nice and quiet. We were able to have a business conversation without yelling across the table. Nice variety of food on the menu with some choices not seen at other restaurants making the visit unique as opposed to usual chain restaurants

Staff was pleasant and accommodating. Would absolutly visit again when doing business in this area.

If I was a local I would have this on my list of regulars establishments.

Great Job !!!!

New to the area and went here as part of a date night with my wife. First, it’s a nice place. It is popular and stayed busy the entire time we were there. Food was great and the server was seasoned. Overall, great experience. The herb-crusted prime rib was perfect and highly recommended!

New Years Eve dinner was ok. My companion's prime rib was too rare and he didn't enjoy it. The server was very good and made sure we had everything we needed. The restaurant was quiet and not crowded. We were not greeted by the hostess. She was busy talking to other people. The person who checked us in was busboy and overwhelmed and used a different name from our reservation. The creme brulee dessert was very good. Over all a ok experience.

Chose Stanford’s for New Year’s Eve dinner with family. It was a nice dinner but a little overpriced for the quality of food. Our service was great and overall, we were happy with our choice.

Service was good/we had a waiter in training. My dinner (Chicken Dijon) was too thin and tough with little flavor. We wanted to sit near the front of the restaurant, but ended up a bit too near the door which was cold and drafty. My companions meal was good and the wine was good.

We have been many times and have always had a great experience which is why we brought the in-laws who were in town for thanksgiving. We were sat in the far back of the restaurant, passing dozens of empty booths they sat us next to a very loud group of people. I ordered the $30 ribeye and had to send it back for being way overcooked. They brought a replacement which was now undercooked. Since everyone was waiting on me to eat I didn't say anything. Very disappointed with the overall experience and will be a while if we ever go back.

I visit Stanford's about once a month when I am in town for business. Consistently great seafood-Salmon, Columbia River steelhead especially, great preparation...and consistently great, friendly, knowledgeable servers...only disappointment was they took the chocolate molten cake off the menu...definitely worth a visit!!

Through Ansestry we were connected with a cousin from my dad's side of the family. I had communicated with my cousin via email & learned so much. My cousin who we hadn't met lives in Roseburg OR & she & her husband were comming to Portland for a Dr. appointed & asked if we could meet for lunch at Stanfords Jentzen Beach. Yes we can do that. Two of us from Federal Way WA, one from Lake Tapps & one from Milwaukie OR met at Standfords Jentzen Beach. The get together was wonderful. Lots of laughter shared pictures & look forward to get together again.All the food was delicious and waitress delightful. They allowed us to stay untill about 3:30 so we could visit not knowing why we were staying so long. A big THANK YOU. We talked so much we didn't think about taking pictures.
