My daughter and I met here for dinner before driving into town for a show at the 5th Avenue Theater. I ordered a salad before my dinner and was shocked by how big it was. My daughter and I both shared it (she did not order a salad) and still didn't finish it. I ordered the oysters, a treat for me, which were cooked to perfection. My daughter ordered the prime rib, medium, and it was perfect. She ordered the 12 oz which was so much to eat she took some home. Brussels sprouts was the vegetable for both of us and was tasty. I did not care for the rice but my daughter loved the mashed potatoes. The decaf coffee I ordered was not as hot as I like it, but the staff was quick to brew a fresh pot and bring me a cup of steaming hot coffee. I have a dairy allergy and found it easy to adapt the menu options for my diet. We definitely will come back again.

As always, the food, service, and comfort of Stanford’s was excellent . We had the halibut in a verbanc sauce accompanied by nicely prepared Brussels sprouts, it was most tasty. Carlos, our server was most attentive but not intrusive. He helped make our Valentines night out most enjoyable. We will certainly be back.

Stanford's suffers from what I call Corporate Restaurant Chain Syndrome - good enough to please most people, does well executing the food 80% of the time (enough that you'll be back again), but it lacks...something. The vegetables this time around were the failure: overly stiff mashed potatoes, woody asparagus, yet awesome hothouse cherry tomatoes. The tomahawk pork chop was seasoned well, with a good (but not enough!) demi-glace, and cooked to the perfect temperature. The specialty pear martini cocktail was delicious, and my husband's prime rib was well done. Where Stanford's shines is in its execution of its proteins and the consistency of its service: prompt, attentive, and not obtrusive. This is the third time we've been here, and we're likely to be back, in part due to its location as a decent sit-down restaurant on the way home. What I wish it was: a lot more consistent in executing the entire dish, with better choices for vegetables.

Carlos as usual is my favorite server. He's so attentive, professional and also knows when I'm having a conversation at the table that I need concentration. He's still very attentive and makes sure everyone has what they need: more water, etc. He's the best!!

Stanford's never fails to please! The food is very good, the servers pleasant. Unfortunately there is no outdoors seating. Stanford's is located adjacent to one of Seattle's best shopping malls.

I particularly like their salads and sandwiches. Many of the sandwiches come with fries, and I ask for them to substitute cold slaw, instead. This never seems to be a problem.

The food was, as usual, just average. The staff is always very pleasant and give very good service, so it seems they are well treated. Stanford’s is often convenient, but I don’t expect to enjoy the food, however it is edible. (Coffee could be stronger - it is Seattle of course. And coffee mugs could be a bit smaller, not so heavy and cumbersome. Coffee gets cold too fast in big mugs like these.)

We like this place. Crowd varies day to day night to night but the food is good with large portions. Kids like it too and OpenTable has got us seated right away. Probably best dining in Thornton Creek

Carlos, our server, is always 100% excellent. He knew enough that this was a meeting and he did not interrupt us except when the meals were ready and ready to be taken away. Your wait staff really make the experience!!

Awesome dinner with 5 friends after the movie

We love the atmosphere and wait staff, but especially the food! I couldn’t wait to have the fish tacos with that amazing rice and Chrissy adores the open face crab sandwich! Everything was great!

Christmas dinner was fine. Service was very good. Major problem with your bill having been charged twice to our credit card. Person answering the phone when we called to report the problem billing was very rude. Wouldn't go back.

We came for Christmas dinner and it was ok. My prime rib was perfect, and I ordered another prime rib dinner to go, to drop at a friends house. But two guests steaks were bad. The steak salad entree was poor. She ate everything except the steak, it was so tough and inedible she just left it to be thrown away. Another guest had the ribeye which looked good, but poor quality, and most of it was pushed away. The filet was very good my other guest reported. So disappointing for a special meal at a place that used to be quality!

I took two of my sons to dinner last night at Stanford’s, Jason was celebrating his 40th birthday. Our server was Nicole and she just made all of our day! She was sweet friendly knowledgeable helpful complementary a pure delight!
I had the hard tacos and I can’t wait to go back and get them again, they were delicious that rice is just awesome I can’t say enough about the food we got a stack of onion rings those were delightful. My son got the fillet mignon happy birthday Jason. We loved the beet salad just a great place to dine!
