The food was very salty. The restaurant seemed to have musty smell, and a bit unkept. The steak was not cooked the way it was ordered, and very pricey. The bill did not match the experience or the quality of the food.

Took 45+ minutes to receive two simple burgers. At that point the burgers were soggy and it was clear that it was sitting under a warmer for a while.

This place is doing a good job with the food...always well prepared. The staff was average at best and the interior, once very nice, is looking a bit tired. So, considering the prices are somewhat high ($90 for two) I’d hoped for a little better.

Reasonable food at reasonable prices. That’s what to expect at Stanford’s. My steak was good, not great, but good. My wife had the halibut and said that it was tasty. We had the cheesecake for dessert. Not memorable but okay.

Nice close to home upper scale place to eat. Service was great. Food was good. Steak was a little tough. Fish and Chips were good. Friends we brought liked their food. Weekday evening dinner so not crowded or loud. That was nice.

Our food was so good it melted in our mouths. My husband had the Dijon chicken and I had the fillet mignon. We were celebrating our 33rd anniversary and we had a relaxing dinner with excellent service and the food was sooooo good. 😊

 (Central Coast)·Dined on January 17, 2018

Went for a date night with my husband with the $100 gift card my company gave us for Christmas. We went for happy hour, great drinks at 5.95 from 3-6, I had a pomegranate margarita which was good, a bit sweet but I liked it. The cranberry mojito was delicious! Had lots of yummy bites all at $10 a plate or less. Crab sushi roll was good, the regular sliders were great and the pepper bacon mac'n cheese was phenomenal! We ended with a death-by-chocolate martini and a chocolate chip cookie skillet and it was hands down the BEST way to end our meal. I would go back just for dessert any day! We sat in the bar, great seats, comfortable, my only complaint would be it was a little dark and hard to see, but other than that, I am looking forward to our next visit!

We have been coming here for Christmas dinner for 4 years now and the food is always great. This year only disappointment was they ran out of ribs but husbands second choice of Filet mignon was excellent and he was very happy. Would be nice if they changed the menu a bit for next year.

Stanford's comes through every time. We decided to have Christmas dinner at Stanford's. Food quality, charm, and excellent service at Stanford's are top notch. For major holidays, they put together a special limited menu. The variety is terrific and includes new things and familiar favorites.

This was my mother's Christmas celebration for me and 2 of my 5 siblings. The food was great. The staff were very attentive. However, our waiter seemed rather defensive in some of his responses. We were a very active table with an off-beat sense of humor which seems problematic for him.

Very disappointing lunch. Crab cakes were dreadful, more breadcrumbs than anything else. No flavor at all. Wonderful server, wish the food was as good as the service. Thank you for being a classy operation and not charging me for the crab cakes, that helped a lot.

Regular customers of this Stanfords but mostly at night. Had our business Christmas lunch there. Food was great but the employees were like walking zombies. Very unfriendly, service was not the best. Had to ask for refills on drinks, hardly saw her. Blonde lady hostess, probably the day manager, had a horrible attitude and it definitely flowed down through all the employees. Service industry needs to remember that their paychecks are provide by satisfied customers. Day management/employees need a little service attitude adjustment.

This was the first time I went to Stanford's for dinner. I selected the restaurant based on a little research on line. The reviews were generally good and the location convenient for me. Although a bit crowded, we were seated immediately with the reservations I made. We did not feel rushed and the Service and food were very good.

Normally Stanfords makes a good prime rib , not on this occasion. 3 of our six top ordered prime rib medium-rare. We all got rare, very rare, Very disappointed. The manager took $60 off of our bill which was appreciated. The server was great as well.

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.
