It was my first visit and I was excited to try Stanford's - Tanasbourne. My partner ordered the petit filet which was cooked and seasoned perfectly while my prime rib was undercooked and under-seasoned. After notifying our server and having the prime rib cooked further, it was still underdone and not flavorful.

The service was friendly and above average, but I would not return based on the price, inconsistency and quality.

Limited seafood offerings. The Fish and Chips (which is usually very good) had three small pieces of fish that were overcooked, the fries were kind of dry. Coleslaw and wine were OK. Waiter was good.

Great food and service. We had reservations, got right in, even thought there was several folks there. The food was excellent, and the ambiance, very relaxing.

The lights were so bright we felt like we were eating in a diner or a coffee shop! When you're spending over a $150.00 for dinner the ambiance should reflect the price. The waitress was inattentive and lied to us about the the Well Drinks. She said that one of their Top Shelf Vodka's was the House Vodka... the bill reflected Top Shelf Vodka. She also vanished for long periods of time and when we did see her we had to flag her down. Her demeanor was anything but friendly.
The food was quite good. Too bad our overall experience was less than expected for our New Year's Eve dinner.

Have spent many times with happy hour at Stanfords. Enjoyed the many bites and drinks so we decided to take our Christmas Eve dinner with Stanfords.
Ate in the bar with a nice table and very nice service person. Ordered our dinner and started with Prosecco and wanted the crab cakes for our appetizer, the salad came before the carb cakes and it was a real treat. Huge salad with lots of crotons, bacon and crumbled cheese! The crab cakes finally arrived and boy what a disappointment! They might have once contained crab but it was hard to find any crab! The aioli sauce was overwhelming and way too spicy for me! They were very kind to reorder mine just plain. It finally arrive along with our main course!!
My husband’s roast beef was good but on the same plate were the baked potato and Brussels sprouts! We imagined the meat to be a much larger slice. It was very tasty but not outstanding! I had the sirloin tips with mashed potatoes and green beans. I was still trying to eat my crab cakes before they got cold! All in all we enjoyed our meal but spending $225.00 we very not that outstanding was slightly disappointed!
We’ll continue coming to Stanfords but Happy hour works much better for us.

Vast improvement from our last visit. Several years ago. We disappointed at that time with food and service and price. Tonight was a great meal at a reasonable price and with great service. We will back often. No need to go down town.

Unfortunately my prime rib was cold, same as my sides. I think my plate was plated too early because my wife's and son's plates were fine. Waiter was annoyed I said something but he asked how it was. I didn't see the waiter for 30 minutes after being served.

Nothing against Stanford’s per se, but when will restaurants make a soup other than tomato-basil? It seems like it’s been offered for two decades, at least.

Very good food and ambiance. Calamari and Cajun Prawn Linguini are recommended. Cheesecake to share was smaller than expected, and the waiter forgot bread & butter, but that's ok. We will definitely be back!

Nicole took great care of us! We had lunch with my folks and she was so kind to them. My Mom is recovering from cancer and hasn’t been out much. A simple lunch became a special occasion because of great service. Thank You.

We had a great time for an early supper at Stanford's. It was nice and quiet and the college football games were on TV in the bar. Our soup and salad dishes were great and my husband enjoyed his Spanish coffee drink and I had a nice glass of Oregon red wine. We always enjoy coming here!

Steaks were very pricey but also very tasty. Only downside was that the steaks were over salted. Easy to wipe off though.
