    The food for the price was poor. Out of six dinner two were cold. The amount of food was very little for the price. It was a birthday dinner and I was very disappointed and would not go there again other then their appetizers were very good. I would go back for drinks and a appetizer plate.

    I requested a table by the window and ended up at the bar for my dinner experience. While I was disappointed I made the list of it since it was crowded. My drink and food orders were rather quick and both delicious. I had the grilled salmon dinner. However the time it took to get my check and check out took a bit too long for my liking. I was still patient. I would come back for the food but on a less crowded Saturday evening to compare the service.

    Thank you for accommodating our wish for a window table for the our birthday celebration. The calamari and warm bread was wonderful. The entrees were good. But the bread pudding was terrible- get a new recipe. It took 20 minutes to be served our dessert and coffee nudge.

    For a higher end, nice restaurant we were disappointed to have such loud music. We sat in the bar area for 45 min prior to our reservation time and chose not to stay in the bar to eat because the music was so loud (typical of a restaurant bar). Unfortunately, right after ordering our meals the music all of a sudden got loud. Our waiter was FABULOUS and kindly got the manger who explained that someone accidentally hit the volume and the have now turned it down. They did not. She went in to explain we could move ONE table over because we were u def a speaker. Weird because the sound level was perfect before someone accidentally turned it up…just not sure why they couldn’t intentionally turn it back down. Anyway, the excuses given by the manager were disheartening. Our server was attentive, kind and punctual; in short, he was amazing! The food was delicious. Sadly, this was our first and last time we will be back my husband was so upset because of the managers excuses and her offer to fix the situation by moving us ONE table over. Just turn the music back down to be that if a fine dining restaurant.

    First time visiting. Great view and wonderful staff but the food was underwhelming. A bit disappointed. The salt content in the French Onion soup made it inedible to 2 of the 3 of us. The Clam Chowder was lovely. Hubby and Daughter got Halibut two different ways. Hubby's grilled Halibut was WAY more flavorful than daughter's blackened. The seasonal veggies were oddly seasoned. My scallops were cooked perfectly but tasted of the cooking oil(?) Very off putting. There were 3 half inch slices of the Asparagus that was stated as a side. And they were the woody ends which were too tough to eat. We ordered a side of mushrooms and they were interesting to say the least. They had a deep smokey flavor that ended up resembling "little smokies". How my pescatarian daughter remembered that taste, I do not know . But they were aweful. The server was a gem, the greeter was very kind, everyone was pleasant. I feel bad saying the food really made it a subpar birthday dinner. The creme Brule dessert though, was just how I like it! Very lovely!

    Our table wasn’t ready, our food came late, our food was warm, and we were asked to leave because they had another party. The 1st lady came over and started taking our drinks and said “we have another party who needs this table”. The 2nd lady came to our table and asked us to leave. When both ladies addressed us they were loud and rudely interrupted our conversation. We understand that restaurants are busy especially on weekends but if there is a certain time limit on tables the restaurant need to communicate that to patrons during the reservation process. They also need to make sure the kitchen is equipped to get plates out in a timely manner and the waiter has enough experience at Stanley and Seafort’s to serve a party of 6.

    Our dinner and service at Stanley and Seaforts was exceptional! Ron had scallops and I had prime rib. Both were excellent. Tiffany, our server was the best we have had for many years. She is a true gem and would be a great trainer for new servers. The prices are not inexpensive but the atmosphere was marvelous. We will go again. Judy

    They got busy so it took a long time for our meal, but everything tasted fantastic. Once they turned on the music the noise level increased to cause the environment to be less pleasant. Overall I recommend them.

    We went for Mother’s Day dinner with a party of 6. The food was ok. My halibut was overpriced and cold. The rice was eh, the Brussels had no flavor and it had what seemed to be premade/ store bought guac on top when it was described as avocado salsa…My boyfriend had the also overpriced scallops that were not nearly as good as ones I’ve had for $15 from the local food truck. Overall not worth the cost this time around, but it was a beautiful day and the view was great. Wine and desserts were good too!

    We have been dining at Stanley and Seaforts for decades. We keep coming back because we love the food, service and atmosphere so much. This visit we were celebrating our 23rd wedding anniversary as well as Mother’s Day and they brought out a customized dessert plate for us at the end. The thoughtfulness on a really busy night meant a lot to us. Thank you!

    We’ve been there many times in the past. The last two times have been inferior to previous times. We had reservations weeks in advance, however, we were seated in the bar when the restaurant area had availability. The food was not cooked to order. Service was pretty good but overall we were disappointed.

    The quality of the food was outstanding (as always). Service was not up to Stanley & Seafort's past standards. We were not asked if we wanted fresh pepper on our salads. Bread came after asking for it twice, late in the meal and already slathered in butter. The noise level was almost unbearable. Will we be back? Yes, but not on a holiday and not during prime time.

    Food was good. Ambience and service was excellent. Menu was very limit and the prices have gone up quite a bit. When I go out to a place like this, I understand I am splurging a little bit, but it was a bit much compared to what I got, so I think it will be awhile before I go back. In summary, it was good food and a good experience, but I just thought it was way too much $$ for what I got.

    Steak was not medium as ordered (came out more well done), did not receive the side of shrimp that was ordered, and rarely saw the waiter. Just ended up eating it because we didn’t see him for 15 more minutes. They were nice enough to comp a dessert due to our anniversary, but it was something my wife could not eat due to being gluten intolerant and the waiter did not even offer a desert menu for other selections. Probably won’t be back for quite awhile, as there are many other options with better service and food in the area for the price point.
