I had checked in with the host on the evening of April 12. I told him that it was important that I check in because of my open table reservation. I was waiting for another friend to arrive so I told him I would be waiting in the lobby and he said that the restaurant has plenty of seating (I can see why now). My friend and I dined in the bar and I got marked as a ‘no-show.’ Awful service, I will not be coming back.

Very nice evening with an excellent waitress and yummy food. We had the crab and avacado sushi for an appetizer, and I had the wild caught salmon over lemony couscous. My husband had the flat iron steak. It was a birthday celebration.

Had a reservation and was immediately seated. Waiter came to table and took our drink, appetizer and food order as we were ready. 30 minutes later no drinks. Talked to manager 10 minutes later we got out drinks. Another 15 minutes passed and we got our entrees. Then they delivered our appetizer. Manager said she would remove it from our bill, she didn't. I just wanted to get out of there so just paid. We have gone to this restaurant for years. It was our go to place. We won't be going back.

I like Stanford's usually. This wasn't as good as usual. It took 10 minutes after seating to get any attention, and 45 minutes to get our 2 entrees at 6:15, shouldn't have been a problem. Server, Sarah, we hospitable but not urgent, which tells me she's used to slow production. Manager swept by and smiled but said nothing, oblivious to the slow production therefore adding no value to dinner or experience, never saw him do anything. Food was delicious, slowness was a distraction from that.

The quality of the food is awesome. However, with the dental convention in town and so close to Stanford's at the Lloyd Center, I feel that the restaurant should have been more prepared to see a larger volume of patrons as in more kitchen and floor people. We waited almost an hour for the food to arrive. Server was not very attentive and absent.

Our service was decent, but it took awhile to get our food. We were late for an event at the Moda Center because of it. The manager did comp us the meal, which we were glad about. The food quality has gone downhill since I have not frequented for over several years. It used to be my choice in dining. However, I was looking for location convenience and didn’t expect the quality to be so bad.

We had a wonderful meal at the Stanford's. Our waiter (can't remember his name) was outstanding. The food great, the wine extra great!!! I would definitely go there again. I had to make a change to my reservation and when I called the restaurant they were very accommodating. That really impressed me.

Surprisingly good! Portions sizes were impressive, especially the grilled salmon salad. Soup was good. Service was friendly and good. Some items (like the sandwiches) seemed a bit expensive. Good that there is plenty of parking.

I thought it was alright. It wasnt very busy when my boyfriend and I visited and the workers treated it as so. Our waitress and hostess were both very sweet so great service! Food was alright. I would say a little over priced for what it is but the amount you get is where the price comes from. I would visit again

The food was super good! I ordered a half chicken fiesta salad. The chicken had some sort of yummy spicy peanut sauce on it. My friend ordered the French dip. My daughter ordered the bacon Mac & cheese and I don’t remember what her daughter ordered. We all stuffed ourselves though. I would recommend getting a box when the food gets there and putting half of it in the box before you ever start eating because the food is so good you’ll finish your plate before you know it! 😂😂😂
