Service was very slow. One person didn’t get their drink.
Booth was crowded for 4 people.
Food was good except the Brussels Sprouts were pretty hard.

Blackened halibut and petite filet mignon both excellent, as were the sides. Service was a little slow, as it seems to be everywhere these days. Not too crowded at 5:30 pm on a Tuesday. Covid protocols in place. Very enjoyable.

It was a good experience. Quiet and the server was busy, but would bend with any special requests. Knowledgeable about the wines, but willing to get someone that might know more on any that he wasn’t sure of.

We had the fish and chips and the prawns and chips. The fish was quite good but the prawns were overcooked (too long in the deep fryer). Our server did a good job which helped the experience. The two ladies in the next booth were loud and obnoxious which really detracted from our enjoyment. Overall I think that given what this establishment charges that the overall quality should be a little better than what we go. I doubt that we'll be back again.

Easy to make reservation, seated promptly, waiter friendly and helpful.
Food was tasty and served warm. Overall a good experience.

I’m having trouble signing up for the rewards program so we didn’t get credit for that meal.

My sis-in-law and I have lunch here once a month and have never had a less than great experience. Yesterday was no exception. The hostess was pleasant and efficient and out waitress was wonderful. I wish I could remember her name because we loved her. The food, as always, was excellent.

This place has THE BEST cheesy bread on the planet! We highly recommend ordering it! We only gave 4 stars for the food because the steak was just ok- it could have used more seasoning. Overall a great place to get a meal.

The food was great, as were the cocktails. The restaurant was very accommodating for our child, with a good kids’ menu. Our waitress, Nicole, was very attentive to our needs, making sure that our child got a nice cold drink and doing a very good job on recommendations on cocktails. A very good and unique feature on this restaurant is the cocktails to go for 2. Definitely worth trying!

The open face crab and artichoke sandwich had problems: too tough to cut readily with a steak knife; crab tasted very fishy. Overall disappointing compared to the past.

I wish I had gotten our server's name because he was exceptional. We were there to catch up on an old friendship and our server did not ever rush us or make us feel like we were overstaying our welcome. Also the food was very good. Stanford's is a great place to meet for me because I live in Bothell and many friends live downtown.

We were in Seattle for a medical procedure and very tired. Our server was SO patient and helpful! She checked on us often. As a couple in our seventies, we really appreciated her attention. The food was delicious, hot, and nicely presented. We’ll come back!

This popular eatery had long lines waiting to be seated at weekday lunchtime, but fortunately we had a reservation and were seated promptly. Distancing measures made the restaurant feel very safe. The food was excellent, exactly what we ordered. The server was extremely busy but still was able to connect with us.
