I had overcooked rubbery halibut. Very small portion for the money. I am sorry... I will not return for dinner.

Mother’s Day brunch with a standard menu. Food took 45 minutes to come and when it did it was cold. Nothing like cold halibut and cold fries. Wasn’t busy so obviously the food was left for the waitress and she forgot about it. She came to the table once in the 45 minute prior to food and replaced our drinks, the only time. Cold food and nothing to wash it down with, great combinations.

The main course was excellent however the sides were so so. The service was exemplary and would be worth going back for on its own.

I have been going there for several years with a group of friends. We celebrate birthdays there quite often. The food is good, it's quiet so we can hear each other, the wait staff is very accommodating and attentive and you are made to feel from the time you arrive till the time you leave. My only complaint is that I'm elderly and short and scooting the chairs up to the table is difficult because the chairs stick on the carpet. That is more my problem but it's the only thing I struggle with when I'm there.

Lots of good choices for lunch. I had cod fish tacos and they were delicious! Big serving size, three tacos and the fish was a nice portion. The salsa and avocado garnishes were tasty.

We arrived early and was seated right away which I thought was kind of strange since it was Easter Sunday so I figured they would be busy but not the case.

They were offering a limited menu, If I knew that then I wouldn't have come there. The menu did not have a variety of food, I was hoping for some pasta but not available. My daughter even said that if they didn't offer the breakfast brunch that she wouldn't have eaten anything.

If they are going to offer a limited menu on special occasions, they should state that when reservations are made.

Had a 6:45 reservation and we arrived five minutes early. We were seated promptly but took almost 20 minutes till our drinks arrived... Waitress was pleasant and took our order promptly, we waited, and waited... and at 8:15 (1 1/2) later we still had not received our food!! We paid for our drinks and headed to McDonald’s... a wasted Saturday night, we will not be back...

We really enjoyed Stanfords, my wife's steak was very good, amazing brussel sprouts, my halibut tacos also delicious - wasn't crazy about the rice it came with though. Kids gobbled up their sliders and chicken, cheesy bread to start for them was a nice touch. Will totally come back.

Service was terrible!! We ordered salads which came and the meal arrived in the next minute. And then we did not see our waitress until she brought the check, no dessert menu nothing. Granted, we did not expect amazing from Stanford's but this was unbelievable. Thank goodness we had a gift card that had been given to us, so we didn't waste our money!

We had to wait for 15 minuets while they cleaned tables and our order was wrong and we had to wait another 15 minutes for food that took an hour to arrive after ordering but we filled the time by talking.

Sat at a table despite multiple open booths. When requested booth were told they were for people who made reservations which we had. They were still empty when we finished. Felt like staff were trying to get rid if us, offering to put out order on fast track. Tried to order a drink and was told the bartender discouraged that drink because it would fall apart. The waiter did not talk to us, just at us as he walked by and was not attentive. The food was ok,not good. Very disappointed as the Stanford's in Northgate had been wonderful. We will not return.

I have NEVER been disappointed when I've dined here. All you can want and more. My friend ordered the True Cod fish and chips, and I ordered the Chicken Nuggets with 3 different dipping sauces. I do NOT eat French fries once they cool . . . THESE were a tremendous exception - kept eating them even cold from the refrigerator!

Our server Brandon was great, very nice and accommodating. My concern was with the SLOW kitchen time, took close to an hour to get our food. One of our party had to leave before the food arrived but they boxed up her food so she could take it with her.
The food was good and the waiter was great, but will not be anxious to return do to the long wait to get our food.

Waitress was awesome. The crowd was too loud and we had to move from one table to another just to find more noise. Need better screens to block sound. Ousters had too much breading. We removed it to find the ouster flavor. Again, service was exceptional.

I went to Stanford's after a long absence because of an advertised 2-for-1 special if we ordered off the "Special Sheet", but when we got there, we were informed that the advertising was in error and the deal was changed by the manager this week to having to order off the section of the menu that has the cheap lunch specials (like a half salad and lower cost items). So essentially, this was a bait and switch offer from Stanford's which doesn't sit well for me. The server, Lynn, was exceptional, but everything else cried out, "Going out of business...or should be!" Wait staffing was at a bare minimum level and the restaurant had very few diners compared to the 'old days' and yet, the food came to the table barely warm, delivered by the manager or the assistant manager. How long does it take to pick up food and walk 60 feet? Can't say I'll be going back after the bait and switch and poor food quality/condition.

Our recent visit to Stanford's was to welcome friends returning to the US after deployment in US Govt. Service. Only 4 of us, but it was important. Overall, everything went well with one small disappointment. We go to Stanford's for special occasions like this a few time a year - to highlight Stanford's signature ribs. Most times the ribs are excellent - juicy and very tasty. This night, the ribs were "OK" - but not as spectacular as usual - but we ate them all anyway!!! The ribs were somewhat dry and overdone to our taste. We have learned over the years to expect that dip in quality occasionally at fine restaurants when we build the high expectations to our guests.

Overall, everything was great! Service was outstanding! Thanx!

All three of us enjoyed our meals. Our server was great, except we didn't see her often enough. I think she might have had too many tables. We were celebrating birthdays and wanted a nice visit, but they placed a noisy child two booths away.

I go to Stanford's because I feel like any guest I take will be able to find something on the menu that he/she likes. The food is generally good. They are also well-organized and usually efficient. We were there during holiday season and were informed by the server that there were a lot of parties there that day. Unfortunately, this meant slow service to start, then waiting over 1/2 hour for our food. But, the food was good and we all enjoyed our lunches. I think for a business meal, this is a good choice. Be careful if you have time restrictions; otherwise you can enjoy a hearty meal.

Neither I nor my date were impressed. Calimari greasy. Food OK, but not really differential from, say, Applebee's. Given that we spent $100 including tip and no drinks, don't think it was good value for money. Better places in that price range within a mile.

Always a special treat to dine here, even without a special occasion. The waitstaff is always attentive, without being obtrusive. Menu has many standard features plus always a great "fresh" sheet. Great cocktails, including their own creations. Well-priced and always good. The hosts and hostesses are always professional and make one feel welcome.
