    I made a reservation and went to the restaurant only to find it closed. Why did you let me make a reservation if the place was closed????

    Excellent food, but service was lacking. Restaurant only had a couple of tables, so not really a good excuse for poor service.

    They really need more help. It took us more than a half an hour to order. We ordered wine.....15min. later we got it. We asked for water and that took a very long time. We ordered our entree and she hurried off before we could order a salad. Our bread was brought when we were almost done with our entree. The place seemed very chaotic of not being very busy.

    Good food, ambience, service and food. The food came fast. I ordered the fajitas which were tasty and filling for $18. My gf ordered the skirt steak special which was great. The mash potatoes were good and the corn was delicious although a bit spicy and unexpected. The steak was probably 6 oz. The only gripe was for a $30 meal maybe the steak could have been bigger I would recommended going there again. Dinner for 2 with no drinks or appetizers was $62 with tax and tip ($10)

    There was no one at the host stand when I arrived and no one in the lobby waiting to be seated. Someone who looked like a server came to greet me, but couldn’t get my Open Table reservation to work, but finally did after pounding the screen to death. Then it took forever for my actual server to get to me after I was seated. She was nice enough and pleasant, but inattentive. I ordered a steak with mushrooms and a salad. The steak came out first, delivered by someone else (Why do restaurants do this?! If you have any special requests to the server, the food runner NEVER knows to honor those requests!), and he tried to flee away before I could ask about my salad that hadn’t come out yet. He told somebody about it and I was almost done with the steak before it finally arrived. A different guy brought that out and said, “I had them make it a little bigger”, but no other explanation or apology. Note that I haven’t mentioned my server again because she never came back to check on me until it was time to pay. Then one of the guys who brought out my other food just showed up with a tea refill (which was nice). My empty steak plate sat on the table for the rest of the meal, and the salad plate sat until she brought the check at the end. Just a very very strange dining experience. Nothing terrible, but just an odd night from the minute I pulled into the parking lot. There’s a LOT of choices in this area, so when I’m back there in a few weeks, I will likely not give this place another try.

    My fish was overcooked but it was remade and it was tasty. The concern is the portion size compared to the cost of dish. Little skimpy on the sides.

    Seated on time but server showed up after 30 mins to take our drink & dinner orders. 30 mins later another server brought our salads BEFORE we got our drinks which came about 15mins later. After another 30 mins, we got our entrees, both cold, returned for re-heating which took another 15mins & were over-cooked. We didn't see our server again for another hour. We didn't expect to spend 3 hours over dinner and won't be going back to Stanford's again.

    We went on Valentine’s Day so it was busy but the appetizer took 45 minutes and after we got our drinks we didn’t see our wait for over 30minutes. The food took a total of an hour and a half and then when we got it everything was cold. Very disappointing experience.

    This was TERRIBLE!!! Arrived and seated at reservation time and was seated. Order was taken. We waited over 1 and 1/2 hour for an appetized to arrive. I asked the waiter about the order and he said he would check. He never returned. I then found the so-called floor manager and asked him, again reply was I will check. He also did not return. Finally after the long wait we got up and left. We were not the only ones who experienced this as other customers were also leaving having experienced the same problem. I would NEVER NEVER recommend or return to this terrible place. One would be better off getting a sandwich at a gas station rather than this place. STAY AWAY from Stanford's!!!

    Waiter was younger male and nice, pleasant, etc. BUT, wasn't very attentive i.e. checking on our drinks, after our dinner was delivered to our table, he never came to check on our food, us, nothing. Waiter arrived after we were finished with dinner and brought the bill. What the waiter does not know, is that our initial appetizer was not made as requested, meaning no one read ticket or waiter did not write down on pad. Waiter didn't check on us, so he did not know about issue. Other bus people delivered meal and sent back for correction. When dinner arrived, my medium Filet Mignon was not medium, but almost well done. BUT, I order this cut for this issue. You cannot screw up a Filet Mignon unless you really try. The steak was good and not tough, just fairly well done. Additionally, the vegetable was Asparagus and one of the stocks looked like it had been under heat for quite sometime, soft, mushy, discolored to grayish appearance, and all the other stocks were clean green and fresh looking. I've eaten at Stanford's a few times and different locations. If this had not been Valentine's Day, I wouldn't be so critical. This visit did not wow me at all and will rethink future visits. Thank you.

    The restaurant was very dirty and dusty. Service was exceptionally slow and the waitress seemingly and purposely ignored us. They were touting brunch with fresh cinnamon rolls and biscuits from scratch which were terrible. Both were cold and hard. I've had better cinnamon rolls out of a can. Didn't seem like any of the other restaurant patrons were enjoying them as they were left on tables. Won't visit this site again.

    We had an early dinner at 4:30 on a Saturday. There were a few people there eating, several people watching NFL playoffs in the bar. A fair variety of menu choices - better than other RUI locations. STRONG coffee! Comfy seating in an elevated booth. Lots of seating. Had a really good southwest salad with light dressing and authentic flavors. Smoked chicken linguine was delicious - great smoky chicken. We weren't offered bread, although we didn't want any. Overall great place.

    my birthday is 12-31 and selected Stanfords as they've always had a great menu with a lot of options.. however, when we went there, they were operating with a "holiday menu' which did not provide many choices at all. we all ended up getting a salad. very disappointed and will keep that in mind for next year!
