Stanford's - Kruse Way (Lake Oswego)
A classy and comfortable atmosphere surrounds you with warm wood and intimate lighting, and our experienced restaurant team is eager to please and delight you.
Excellent service, amazing food as always. I will definitely be returning for another special occasion!
Had a 7:45 reservation but wasn't seated until 8:25
The food was good, but the service was bad. We weren’t happy with our waiter. We are hoping it was because it was Valentines Day. Not worth spending the money if you don’t have decent service. We will give it another try and hope the service is better. The atmosphere was great!
Valentines dinner! Made reservations, however, they were very busy and waited about 45 minutes after our reservation time to be seated. Lobby was very chaotic, once seated everything was great!
They have the best steaks. I ordered the filet mignon. It was tender, juicy, and flavorful. Their roasted brussel sprouts with bacon were delish too.
We had a reservation, well ahead of Valentine's Day, and were there on time. We (four of us) selected the Valentine's Day special dinner, which began to arrive in (sort of) a timely way (soups, champagne - calamari took a l-o-o-ng time to get to the table).
Then the wait began for the entree.
The entrees arrived, cold, approximately 1h 20min after we had sat down, and this wasn't due to our not ordering in a timely way. We had asked a few times where the entrees were, as we had finished our appetizers and champagne after a half hour or so, and were told that they were coming soon. When they arrived the salmon and potatoes and other items were cold; the waitress picked them up to fix that, but when they returned the meat was still cold, the parsnips were cold and mushy, but the potatoes were warm. Being quite upset by all this, I asked the waitress' manager to give us a bill for the drinks and appetizers, and told her we were leaving without seating our entrees. She said she'd already paid for our dinners and that she was quite sorry.
What rankled was that people at neighboring tables were being served on time, apparently enjoying their dinners, and leaving - several of these parties had arrived after we had been seated. The coup de grace for our visit was having a table set up for at least 16 people immediately next to us, which, as we prepared to depart, appeared to potentially be loud and disruptive.
We've been to Stanford's a number of times, both in L.O. and Tanasbourne. This was a surprising disappointment for us all. The only assumption we can make is that the L.O. management was completely unprepared in some critical way for the influx of people on Valentine's Day. That day. after all, is an opportunity for the restaurant to catch and hold new customers, rather than repel their regulars.
Incidentally, after we left Stanford's we went a short distance to Gubanc's. Seated in <5 minutes, very good food and service. C'est la vie.
Great decor & super nice people.
Great service. Food was good as always. We’ll be back again.
The ahi salad was outstanding
It's pleasant enough, but the food quality and flavor was not outstanding or anything to recommend it. Our fish was dry (halibut). The Brussel sprouts had little flavor. the mashed potatoes were good and the onion rings were delicious, though!
Service was great and very accommodating for us. Our food was brought out very timely and just the way we asked it to be when we ordered.
Nathan (our server) was a Rockstar !
The rice that came with the chicken taco was very good but the taco itself lacked flavor. Try add more acid and fresh herbs to enhance the flavor. Also, the taco shells were a bit too gritty for me. Parking was difficult to find during lunch.
Husband and I decided to go last minute for my birthday and I’m so glad we did. The food was fantastic, the wait staff was great, and the drinks were yummy! I would recommend 100 times over!
I used to come here on a more regular basis, it just seems like it has gone down hill. Still good food, just poor service. I wont be going back
Went for NYE eve. Waiter was very pleasant but seemed short staffed. Prime rib could have been warmer along with veggies. Spinach dip wasn’t the same consistency as usual. A little disappointed but we will be back since our previous visits have been good
Our Monday go to place. Sheri, Robert and Rene are amazing.
Granted we had a gift card, but it would have been reasonable priced even without one for this venue. Very pleasant atmosphere, even with the anniversary party next to us!! Very nice place for a date night with the wife.
Even when the restaurant was full, it was easy to carry on a conversation. We had the salmon, and MUST have the recipe for the glaze... the best ever!!! For the birthday girl, they offered a complimentary dessert of our choice. Definitely will be back!
Thank you for a wonderful Christmas dinner. Steaks were all cooked great and the Brussels sprouts are to die for.
We went on Christmas day for dinner, which was excellent.
Food was delicious, service was great.
Our server was great. We like it when you are checked on after your food is delivered and she checked on us a few times. GREAT
If you are celiac or gluten intolerant don't eat the Brussel sprouts. A waitress let me know that they are deep fried in cross contaminated oil after I had previously been told by the kitchen that the Salmon with Brussel sprouts was gluten free!
Good selection on the menu!
We had a great meal, well prepared, and tasty. Our server was excellent; he made sure we were taken care of and had anything we needed.
Always the best. Food and service are both awesome!!!
We were seated at a very nice table for 8 in a nice spot in the restaurant. We had plenty of room, which was important as we were having a baby shower luncheon. Waiting staff was very efficient and polite, and made efforts to help out in the ordering process. There were 2 things that could of been improved on in the overall experience. The food seemed to be a little slow from the time of ordering, to the arrival. We should of been checked on in between. Overall I was happy with the experience!
I took my wife there for our anniversary our 10th and also for our 1st was just as good parking can be a problem as we went at 6:30 on wednesday but not to bad very busy our waitress was spot on and very good she was worth the extra tip we will do it again hope to see her there again all in all very good time.
Service was friendly but very slow
Great food, service and atmosphere.
We had a great time with friends. Food was good as always.
Very attentive server. My salmon was cooked to perfection and the Brussel Sprouts were yummy with good seasoning . It was a great dinner. I always love the warmth of this place on a cold and rainy evening.
This is my "go to" lunch spot in the immediate area. No other places can beat the service, menu and price.
This Stanford's location has gone down hill in recent years. We both had the Cod Fish and Chips. I think they got the fish frozen from Costco or something. The batter was bready and parts were lukewarm and not very crispy; the plate was hot on one side, but the food was not. Fries were ok, but not that hot either. The breading on most of the fish was too thick - I picked most of it off and found very little fish inside. It also tasted like it had been frozen, for a while. Charging $16.95 for this and not including a salad or cup of soup is just too much for what you get. Drinks have gone up too. $3.75 for a glass of iced tea or soda is absurd. The service was good. It's kind of sad. This place used to be a lot better years ago.
It seems like we are always well taken care of and the food is great! I highly recommend the Salmon and Brussel sprout special they have right now!
Thanksgiving was enjoyable. The stuffing, however, appeared not to have been cooked.
Thanksgiving... a time spent with family and friends! We are from Oklahoma visiting our niece who recently moved to OR from Oklahoma to pursue her dreams in special effects makeup. We couldn’t bear the thought of her being “alone” for Thanksgiving. So, we appreciate you sharing this day and meal with us! Everything was delicious and service was excellent!!!
Wonderful Thanksgiving Day Choice!! They were perfect in every way. The reception was welcoming and we were seated (had reservations) in a timely manner. The special Thanksgiving meal choice (turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, brussel sprouts & gravy) was perfect! Delicious, cooked perfectly as if it were truly a home cooked meal (not trying to impress restaurant style). We all loved the meal! The cooks and staff all did a great job. We cannot thank them enough for a perfect Thanksgiving Day Dinner!
