The restaurant was busy, with nearly every table filled, but we were seated immediately when we arrived at our reservation time. The food was delicious and well presented. The wait staff were hopping because of the business, but they also helped each other out and worked wonderfully as a team, and were attentive to our table.

We will definitely be back.

At our table of 6, we had (2) chicken, oysters, shrimp, and calamari and steak. ALL were overcooked and dry. Vegetables were good and service was great, but very pricey for what we received.

Waited even with reservations. Was seated at the BACK of the place. Waited for our drinks even though other couple,seated later than us was given their drinks first. Front desk was not willing to move us to a booth saying seating was PREASSIGNED. The chairs were uncomfortable. My filet mignon arrived rare. Bloody. I requested MEDIUM. Since I am a diabetic, if I would have to send it back and wait more was not an option . (Cheweeeee) Filet Mignon is supposed to be a wonderful piece of steak. Their Thanksgiving Turkey dinner was only a couple of dollars less then the steak and the turkey did not look as good ( as it passed by me to other dinners) It does not please me to write a bad review but this was expensive and even my husband got sick later that evening. ( he had salmon)

The service and ambiance were wonderful. On Thanksgiving we were delighted to have the waiter help our vegetarian and vegan guests come up with a meal that was pleasing (restaurants like that are almost impossible to find on Thanksgiving Day! The food was delicious, too.

I'm giving it 3 stars this time. Normally it would be 4 or 5. It's a very nice restaurant, just a bit spendy, but really great food. Unfortunately, their Thanksgiving turkey didn't come out as good as it should have. It was tough and undercooked. Even the skin on the breast was white and slimy. Other entrees at our table were top-notch.

Our server, Lisa, was outstanding! I tried brussel sprouts for the first time and they were fabulous! The salmon was good but not remarkable. The apple crisp with the carmel sauce is worth travelling for!

I love this place. This time the server didn’t come around as much and the ahi sushi was horrible. Everything else was good tho. It just sucks paying for something that I didn’t eat and wasn’t going to eat. I ate two of them and it was enough to know it wasn’t the same as last time.

This is one of the nicest restaurants in Hillsboro. Excellent food and service. Great care taken with food allergies. Wednesdays are half price wine bottles which made for a great value and there was a nice selection of bottled wines to choose from. Very nice ambience and although we were a larger table, the noise level in the restaurant was minimum so we were all able to hear each other and enjoy the evening. Would definitely return and recommend!

We went as a family of 7. Made reservations. They tried to seat us a table for four right in the doorway of the dining room. Clearly wasn’t going to work for our party. Then took us in the way back to a much bigger table. Server came got us waters and appetizer. After the appetizer came it was about 25 minutes before her shadow server in training came back and we asked for our server. She went and got her and we ordered. This restaurant would’ve been perfect had the service time been better. I don’t like to be hovered over at restaurants but a little attention is needed, and the server was nice just not as attentive as she should have been with such a large party.

Got to the restaurant about 15 mins before our reservation time. The hostess was going to seat us but was stopped by another staff member who told her to wait because we were early. Not sure why we were made to wait until our reservation time before finally being seated. If I had known that, I wouldn't have made a reservation in the first place since we went in at non-peak time.

We split an order of prime rib and it was cooked to perfection. We also upgraded our vegetables from broccolini to asparagus which was very good. Our waitress was aware of out wanting to enjoy our wine before ordering dinner and enjoying a cup of coffee after dinner. Everything was perfect! We highly recommend Stanford's at Tanasbourne.

I came here wirh a small group of people for my 27th birthday. This place is usually always on point when it comes to service, but on this particular day the waitress who was helping us seemed very rushed and forgetful. She was quite rude, too. Though I don't think she was trying to be. There was a very large group near us that was probably stressing her out, but I don't feel like that should have become our problem. We were more than nice to her, but were constantly met with snark. Anytime she'd stop by the table for any reason, she would bolt away before any of us had the chance to ask her for more water. She left so quickly after taking appetizer orders, that one of my friends, who had planned on ordering an app, didn't get to. We weren't even done ordering and she just left... Just, really dissapointed with the service on my birthday. Food was great tho, as always.

We always enjoy Stanford's for food, service and value that range from good to excellent; this was no exception.

It was a busy night, but we were seated at our reservation time. Service was friendly and professional, but there were some stretches when we'd have liked more water or tea - a minor issue, but normally service is more on the spot. Our waiter was very friendly, and very kindly accommodated a couple of minor substitution requests on our entrees.

Food was excellent - we had filet mignon, it was prepared as requested, and the flavor and tenderness were an excellent value for the price.

I made our reservation for 5 people. Our table was in a room with a large group - I would say maybe 18 to 20 people very close to us. We couldn't hear or converse. There was nothing wrong with the group - it was just large. We asked if they could move us to a quieter area and fortunately, they were able to accommodate us and did so quickly and courteously. Otherwise it would have been a very unpleasant dinner but turned out great.

Food was good. Especially good was the salmon chowder. My swordfish was overcooked, often an issue with fish in restaurants. Served with a pineapple couscous which was very good. My wife and almost daughter-in-law loved their shrimp scampi. We had a reservation for 5 and the hostess seated us at a table next to a very large party which not only was noisy but were standing and invading our space. The hostess did not intervene or offer us an alternative. This was totally unacceptable. So we moved ourselves to a quieter place and were eventtually reseated to another quieter space.

Our server Jennifer was very attentative.

Received appetizer with main meal, one of us received coleslaw on their plate, which he did not want, and they just took the plate back to the kitchen and scraped it off and returned the plate.

The food is reliably good. Not fantastic or super, but good. The prices are reasonable and the noise level is not too high. You can actually talk to the person you're dining with. So I would call it romantic as well - lots of booths that are private. The light level is not too bright.
