Disappointed this restaurant doesn’t accept Restaurant Unlimited gift cards even though it’s still listed on the R-U-I app as being a R-U-I location.

The steak wasn’t well seasoned, maybe it was because I went on it was crowded

My wife and I went to dinner on Valentine's Day. The restaurant is close to our home so it is very convenient. Food was great and portions are LARGE. Quality food at a great price point.

Came in for a birthday lunch. The food was great and portions were healthy. Since I came in hungry I didn’t take any leftovers, and didn’t feel icky after eating everything on my plate. The lunch specials are great and will feed everyone food type.

After I got to my reserved table all was great. But I stood at hostess station w up to 12 other people for 10 min without attention. One person said she’d be right back. Another never made eye contact but stood there straightening menus and left without helping anyone 5 separate parties standing around. I was 10 min late getting to my reserved table while my guests were at the table waiting for me

A great experience. Met a friend to catch up. The low level noise and cozy atmosphere are perfect for one-on-one time. I had the braised pork ragout and my friend had the smoked chicken linguine. Both were delicious. The ragout was first time try for me as it was an item on the seasonal menu and I was not disappointed. Service was excellent, not too much and not too little.

All was great, lovely spot for dinner and lunch too. Very good service, not too noisy, Wonderful food, but VERY expensive mixed drinks. Really..do they have to be that high? That spoiled it just a little. I guess when we come next, we,ll have just wine. thanks however,

Based on past visits, we have come to expect a perfect dining experience at Stanford's in Northgate. We were not disappointed. I had the fish and chips with Pacific Halibut and my husband had the chicken parmesan with pesto linguini. Both were delicious and beautifully plated. Service was attentive and very good. The ambience is a nice mix of fun with a touch of sophistication.

A much needed reprieve from the noise and clamor of the world, where one can focus on good food and good company. A calm and restful ambience with the look and feel of an intimate space, with just enough activity and sounds from other diners in the open space that includes the bar and dining room that lets you know you are eating out. The food does not disappoint. Tasty, appropriately seasoned, and beautifully plated. My skirt steak was cooked perfectly medium and my husband's roasted chicken linguini was delicious. Very good coffee, and very good service. Our waiter was knowledgeable about the menu items and each course was served with impeccable timing. Still getting used to the living wage add-on. Overall a wonderful dining out experience!

I love Sanford’s and I’ll be eat there several times a month. Unfortunately this time someone got our order wrong. It all worked out but it was rather inconvenient.

Thanks

I like Sanfords very much and go there quite often for lunch. As usual the food was good as always, but the server got our order incorrect, an unusual experience. The Restrauant was busy but it was especially loud, maybe because of where the booth was located. It was an unusual disappointment. Of course I’ll continue to eat there. This was just an unfortunate experience. I just wanted to share my thoughts with you.

Thank you
