My lobster wasn’t cooked thoroughly. The waiter forgot to bring our gravy, sour cream & A-1 sauce. Poor service.

Not the Stanley’s of old. Linen tablecloths gone. Plating of food average at best. Did not look appealing. Server was pretty good but the overall experience was poor. I will not be going back.

Our favorite restaurant hands down. We always go there for special occassions throughout the year and they never dissapoint! The wait staff is incredible. They get everything right. My husband is in a wheelchair and is treated with the utmost respect and kindness. Thank you from the wife of a disabled veteran.

I ordered the Caesar salad and the lettuce was floating in dressing-more like lettuce soup. Brussels sprouts were inedible--uncooked and tough. Server was nice. Manager did come apologize and took one dinner off the bill. We were celebrating our 44th anniversary as we have for many years at Stanley and Seaforts but were very disappointed this year.

Usually the food is outstanding. This time, our prime rib was just okay, and not medium rare as ordered. It was too expensive to be just okay.

Had the clam chowder and Caesar salad. Neither one was good and I have noticed the quality of food has dramatically dropped over the recent years. Time to find a new spot to go to.

Service and food were great, a solid four stars. Only a couple of fairly minor hiccups stopped me from giving five. I felt like we had too many servers. I think by the time we got our food, we'd had six different people talk to us. It felt like we almost didn't have a single server but were being taking care of by whomever was available. For the food, we split both a salad and steak, and I really appreciate that the kitchen split things so we didn't have to do it at the table. It was the perfect amount of feed for a lighter dinner and kept the bill a little more reasonable. However the two halves of the steak were pretty significantly off. One was the medium rare that we order, but the other was *rare*. (It worked out since my fiance prefers her steak rarer, but for the quality of restaurant, I would expect the steaks to be dead on.

Again, over-all, perfectly lovely dinner for the end of a very stressful day. We were also seated along the window, and the view is just magnificent. I've been before, and I'll be back again.

We are a Mom’s Group, our kids are on the autism spectrum, and we were celebrating Mother’s Day weekend. We had a lovely brunch/lunch at Stanley and Seafort’s!! And the young gal, blonde hair and glasses, who did the reservation, and is the hostess, was just so nice and so helpful for our party 8!!!

What's there to say? Stanley and Seaforts has been on the hill for decades - long enough to become an icon of South Sound dining. Never disappoints the palate and has a great view.

The staff is always super friendly and accommodates our requests with a smile. The menu has the timeless classics that I rely on to be there for very time I visit and a selection of new stuff for variety.

Their French onion soup is the dish from which I judge all others and has yet to be challenged.

The appetizer menu is a eclectic and refined, but includes some simple items everyone can enjoy. The bar and mixologists are also true alchemists that take advantage of NW seasonal fruits and are daring enough to push the limits. Whether it is a simple Martini, or my new favorite the "Three Berry Cosmo" you will not be disappointed.

I thought that making reservations for 6pm meant we would be seated when we arrived, but we waited 25 minutes. I think it would have been nice if someone had offered to bring us a glass of wine while we waited since we sat at that bar overlooking the bar. We were checked on a few time during our 25-30 minute wait which was good though.

The thing that really bothered me was when we arrived, I saw the Hostess lick her fingers in order to grab the paper part of the menu. So now I'm thinking great, someone's saliva is all over the menus that they hand us...gross...

Other than the complaints, it seemed a bit overpriced for what we received. I will say the food was delicious, very tasty, it just seemed so expensive for the experience being a bit lackluster.

Thank you,
~Valerie

Our food was good. Steaks, short ribs and the Wagyu meatloaf Wellington done perfectly. The service was excellent. We waited in the bar ahead of our reservation and were welcomed and served immediately and enjoyed the great view from there. When our reservation was ready (and on time), we were escorted to our table and transitioned to our new wait staff who recognized our special occasion and proceeded to deliver a great dining experience. The view from our window table made it even better. Highly recommend, especially if you love beef dishes done well, but there is plenty of variety for lighter dishes. Will go back.
