Food was delicious! Server was super busy and seemed like she had too many tables, but probably hard to staff with current restrictions, so understandable.

Please, stay the course. Keep doing your best to stay open, despite the social distancing, lower dining area seats, and the reduction in menu offerings.
We can only make it to Stanford's twice a year or so, but it's a fine restaurant and the dining is always a step up in quality and class.
Hopefully, you all can get back to work full-time, soon.

We had a great time and stayed until closing. The food was wonderful and the guest staff was very responsive even when we asked to be moved from outside to inside. The manager came and helped us move.
We would recommend Stanford’s to all.

Stanford's has a very limited menu at this time which was disappointing. I had the minestrone soup which consisted of 40 percent black beans, 40 percent elbow macaroni 1 percent meat and 19 percent broth. It was tasteless and devoid of vegetables. My partner had the Caesar salad which was satisfactory except that it was overdressed.

Very limited menu for lunch on a Sunday. Brunch was still available so we ordered the eggs Benedict. Very dissapointed. $20 for a sad looking dish. Small portion and it looked homemade...no wait, it would've been better if it was homemade. If you're going to charge high prices for basic meals, then they should be made to meet the cost. At best this dish should of been priced at $10 if that.

Baby back ribs with an amazing sauce, fabulous fries and blue cheese slaw on a sunny Sunday afternoon on the patio. What more could you ask for?

I asked that the artichoke and crab dip appetizer be prepared as a half sandwich which is not on the menu and my request was fulfilled. Stanfords always makes you welcome.

The crab and artichoke dip was amazing!!! My dinner salad was soggy with too much dressing and wilted lettuce. My husband soup didn’t come out with my salad and when we finally flagged our waitress she admitted she forgot...something to do with a new system and she had to serve up herself. Our main courses were both good and were hot. My dinner, the salmon, came with four grilled asparagus...a little skimpy but grilled just right!

Slow service in a practically empty room. The Caesar salad was not very fresh and the dressing was unremarkable. The blackened salmon was barely that and was very thin. My water glass remained empty after the first 10 minutes. Dessert was good but overpriced.

Options weren’t very good. Asked for any other vegetable other than asparagus and that was a flat sorry that’s all we have??? Energy was very flat. Sad resemblance of the old fun spot and place to be

We have always enjoyed dining at Stanfords. We had the impression that this place was sold as some of the common elements we saw in the past are missing but the food is still very good. We recommend making reservations for this restaurant.
