Stanford's - Northgate Ratings and Reviews
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 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!
This is one of our favorite places to eat. Many choices on the menu, good seafood, beef and pork items. The staff is outstanding and caring! Large parking lot, adjacent to one of the area's large malls. We argued about who had the best meal.I had an excellent crab and artichoke on focaccia bread, served with a choice of sides. I chose a cinnamon apple slices. Other choices included slaw, or fries.
Restaurant itself was nice enough. Not too loud. Clean. Wait staff was okay although it took longer than it should have given the number of people.
The food was decidedly subpar for the most part. I got a steak cobb salad and the steak was underdone and very tough. My companion got the prime rib and it was way over-spiced (rosemary) and not at all tender. Very chewy. Her mashed potatoes were kind of dry.
I guess the rest of the salad was fine.
Reserved a table for my wife and I for lunch before seeing Aladdin at the Paramount. We were seated right away and the service was excellent. The menu had many great options and lunch specials for a good price. The food was very good. I had the half crab and artichoke sandwich with a salad. The salad had real bacon and boiled eggs...very tasty. My wife's chicken strips were OK, but could have been fried a bit longer as they weren't as crispy as she usually likes. The BBQ sauce served with the strips was exceptional. The Strawberry Lemonade was good, but very tart, and the only sugar on the table is sugar in the raw which doesn't mix well in cold drinks. Overall a nice restaurant for any occasion. I will go again.
Met a friend for dinner last Saturday night. We started off in the bar and got good service. Was seated in the dining room in a cozy booth. Excellent service - server was efficient, friendly and good humored. The meal plus wine was very reasonably priced. I had the grilled oysters with creamed spinach and vegetables - this was a "light" preparation - not heavy on the cream - just enough to make it rich. Lightly sautéed vegetables and crispy oyster filled the platter. My friend had a chicken pear fig salad that was huge and very tasty. A perfect dining place, after shopping at Northgate Mall. Will definitely return.
This was the worst restaurant meal I have ever eaten. Ever. Stringy, tough prime rib served lukewarm. Chicken Parmesan that was all breading and little chicken, desperately overcooked, even after I sent it back once, with supposedly fresh mozzarella that was a congealing glop atop one of the two pieces of chicken. We spent $80 for two on a meal that was worth about $10 plus a beer. (They couldn't screw up the beer.) Wow, this was awful.
Really like is restaurant for dinner, but brunch was nearly inedible. The potatoes were so overcooked you couldn't cut them with a knife. The crab cake tasted like dried bread crumbs. We will not take anyone to brunch at Northgate Stanford ever again. It was very embarrassing.
We had a nice quiet dinner with a terrific waiter, Michael. Micheal was friendly, humorous and concerned that we were happy with our selections. He checked on us often, without being intrusive. The food was tasty, very warm, and as described in the menu. The portions were generous. The only downside was the coleslaw that came with my halibut fish n chips. It was BLAH & bland. But everything else was tops, especially my raspberry lemon drop cocktail. So 5 stars still! Thank you again for Michael, well done!
This was my third visit t this location and it was for a birthday luncheon. The food was very good, our server was pleasant and responsive, although she had too many tables to serve and was a bit harried (athough I noticed that only because I observed how many tables she had to take care of - she was unfailingly nice).
