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.

The steak was perfectly cooked and delicious; the chicken tenders were really good and the scallop special was good as well. Scallops were small but tasted great. Service was outstanding.

The food was great & service prompt (even on Mother's Day)! The tables felt private & well distanced - very safe. Hoping they go back to a full menu once COVID restrictions are lifted!

Everyone was great!! The food was really good too!!

We do wish that a brunch (with breakfast items) was available since we were there at 1pm on Easter.
That was rather disappointing to us.

Thank you for a pleasant experience!

Somewhat more limited menu at the current time, but still many of the reliable comfort food item -- especially that mac and cheese. All created with a little more imagination than the usual versions and prepared with care. Excellent large bowl of basil tomato soup with a good BLT; a quite nice southwest salad. And, already mentioned, a creamy mac and cheese, tastier than other places can manage to do.

Portion size very small, but food quality was excellent. I had the salmon dinner. Very good but did not like the fact they used an ice cream scoop approach on the mashed potatoes.

Stanford’s does a good job of social distancing and limited touching, from having foot-operated door opening devices on the restrooms to plenty of no-use tables in the dining room. Its menu is pretty limited right now, and not great for non-meat eaters, so if that’s a concern, you might want to take a look at it before you go. The food was pretty good - good artichoke dip, good fries, prime rib dip a little on the dry side (before dipping). Overall, a solid “fine.”

To honor social distancing, we sat outside. Since it is located adjacent to a very busy street along side a shopping center, the traffic noise is quite loud.

We sat outside. Unfortunately, their "happy hour" now is only 2-4pm M-F IN THE BAR. The crab/avocado sandwich has changed and isn't as good as it was previously.

Michael was our server. He was patient when he was asked to come back in a few minutes to take our order.
Michael was attentive to us, not too much, not too little.
I had the prime rib dip - yum.
My dinner partner had the fish and chips - yum again.
Yes, we will be back!
