We were pleasantly surprised with everything we had this time at Stanfords. We had the Prime Rib and Filet Mignon. Each was perfectly cooked with mashed potatoes and the BEST brussels sprouts with pancetta I have ever had. Very good meal. We will be back.

Even though I cannot find our server's name, she was outstanding! I am always spoiled by LT in the bar but this was one of the first times in the main restaurant and my daughters and I had a very special afternoon. We try and get together once every couple of months since their dad, my husband passed away and we will definitely be back. Thank you!

The food was mediocre with hot chili powder dumped onto my fish and chips. The other dinner in our gathering that was ordered was an ahi tuna salad that had the same chili powder on it. I love spice but that was odd.
Mostly our disappoint was that we were ignored by our server. The restaurant was only moderately busy. A cocktail we ordered never arrived and no one refilled our water or asked if we needed anything.

Had heard good things about this restaurant, but I was very disappointed. Even with reservation at 5 pm on a Sunday, and with not many tables occupied, the service was extremely slow from beginning to end. The food was not memorable and seemed way too salty. For the average entree price of $20, I was not impressed.

This is my best friend’s choice for her birthday dinners. She was quite happy with her dinner. Me, too. I do think a baked potato should be a presented option instead of just mashed potatoes. More dessert options would also be welcome. The fresh veg is always top notch. Your wait staff are always pleasant and very helpful. They seem to engage with your diners to a comfortable degree.

The worst rib eye steak ever. Total waste of money. Steak was tough, cold, grey not even warm. Don’t know if the dog will be able to eat the leftovers the steak was so tough.

I indicated that it was my father's 82nd birthday in the reservation and it wasn't passed along to the server. The prime rib was order medium rare and served rare (the staff graciously took it back). The rib eye steak was a poor cut and riddled with gristle. Prawns were good, chicken was good, service was attentive.

Menu is not exciting, more bar fare than restaurant fare. Specials were the same as were offered 2 weeks earlier. Favorite light items like pizza removed from menu. Our 2 starter house salads and entrees were $79. Imagine if we’d had drinks, too! For that money we could have enjoyed a more gourmet meal someplace else. Food was ok but certainly not special. Will think twice before going for a spur of the moment meal.

We were looking for a nice place to eat prior to attending the Andrea Bocelli concert in Portland. I'm glad we stayed local then made the quick drive up I-5 to the Moda Center. Kruse Way Stanfords exceeded expectations. Dinner was delicious and the atmosphere was pleasant.

I like Stanfords very much. I had the Halibut Caprese and I liked it, but the dish unfortunately was cold and the fish overdone. My son had a steak and it was beautiful and cooked to perfection. My DAL had the chicken fajitas and they were also excellent, very much to her liking. I usually enjoy my food much more than I did this time (a Friday evening). I hope this note is a reminder that every dish needs to be cooked and served with excellence.

The food was as we have come to expect from Stanfords but the service was less than desirable. My wife's martini has chunks of ice and tasted more like cold water than a cocktail. The server took it back to replace and never returned with a new drink. Another server delivered our salads and then our main course before our primary server came back (without a new martini) to ask how we were doing. We told her to forget it and moved on. The problem started with the bartender and someone should have gone out of their way to correct the issue as quickly as possible instead of forgetting about it. Unfortunately, this detracted from our overall experience.
