    The occasion was a business lunch and, as usual at Stanford’s, everything was good to excellent. The meal was lunch and we both had the Prime Rib sandwich, which was good, but not perfect. The meal was more than a little overcooked and a bit dry . We would have preferred being told the meal was well done and having had the opportunity to select a different entree.

    Highly recommend meeting with friends to eat. There are many good food options - including small pieces for those who don't want huge orders. Each individual piece is excellent. The staff is very helpful while we are there. There is excellent parking right at the restaurant, a preferred advantage for us all to arrive and park easily. Many friends live throughout the greater Seattle area, but meeting right next to I5 makes it easy for them to arrive and park easily even though they live more than a couple of miles away.

    We were celebrating Father’s Day with our daughter and her boyfriend. The menu has so many selections and they adapted a couple items to be gluten free. Our waiter was great even though it was a busy night.

    Had a reservation and were seated right away. Menu had something for everyone: prime rib, seafood, salads, burgers, sandwiches, etc. Prices were a little high but expected. Cocktails were delicious. Dessert was delicious too. All meals were tasty. Server was attentive. Parking on site.

    Four friends met to celebrate years of friendship. Table was ready at reservation time. Waitstaff was attentive, but not overly so. Food -- Poke, shrimp & chips, fish & chips -- was excellent. Atmosphere was very good. Recommend for single, couple, group and family get togethers. Will return for sure.

    I used to love Stanford's. This is where my husband and I had our first date, where he proposed to me, and where we took our 4 children to celebrate our 10-year anniversary. We loved the food, and pricing was reasonable. I'm guessing that, due to the pandemic, food prices have skyrocketed, and possibly due to short staff, our food took 1 hour to come to our table. Our waitress - although extremely busy - was inattentive and forgot to bring our drinks. We will most likely not return to what used to be our favorite place to dine.

    Mashed potatoes had huge uncooked chunks of potatoes in them….like the size of a small orange. Told the waitress…she was going to tell her manager….and we watched her do that. No visit from the manager, nothing else said. Apparently they didn’t care.

    We had a very nice time. The wait staff was excellent. The two areas of concern were our appetizer was not warmed through, and the sauce for an entree was very spice, and the entree description did not mention spicy aioli.

    The food came out with great presentation and looked good, but in my salad the tomatoes were over ripe and going bad and there was just too much dressing to eat the salad. There was some cheesy bread on the side that looked so good, but it was like it was taken out of the freezer, it was cold.

    Went because my daughter was craving prime rib. Our dinners were overall good, but my daughters’s food was pretty much stone cold. She didn’t say anything to us until half way through the meal, so we didn’t ask for it to be returned or warmed up. The lavender lemonade was delicious!

    I made reservations on line stating that is for a birthday celebration but during the entire meal and afterward there was no acknowledgment of our birthday person, Most other restaurants would at least mention it to the person and maybe offer a cupcake with a candle on it.
