Absolutely top-notch service! We did not spend a lot for our dinners, but were treated with all the attention and courtesy a guest could wish.

We were pleasantly surprised by the number of quite affordable offerings on the regular dinner menu. The daily specials were pricey, but sounded as if they'd be worth it. We will go back again.

I knew that a Wednesday evening would not be busy so there should have been no reason for how slow the service was.

Our server was absent a lot of the time and rarely engaged with us. It took quite some time to receive service. It seemed like she was either wishing she was somewhere else or literally was somewhere else in her head. She was checked out.

I ordered a hamburger with no cheese and no tomato it had both. Friend had fish and chips fish was really dry. Waitress brought food next time we saw her was to bring the bill. Thought the prices were high for what you got.

When we checked in the hostess asked if we had a reservation which we did not at the time. She proceeded to tell us that it would be a 40 minute wait...even though there was no one else waiting and PLENTY of tables. So we put our name in and walked outside to think about other options. We watched her great and seat 2 other groups as they walked in. I then pulled out Open Table and saw I could make a reservation at the same Stanford’s in 7 minutes. So I did, and we walked back in. She looked flustered as I showed her my name on the list and she proceeded to tell us it wasn’t that they didn’t have tables but the kitchen was a 40 minute ticket time. If that’s the case why not seat us and let us get some drinks? She did then seat us and we ended up getting our food in less than 20 minutes. Seemed like a weird reason and she was definitely not very welcoming. Won’t be back!

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
