I've been drinking and dining at S&S for 36 years. It's a great place for dinner on a weekday evening after dark when the crowds who often fill the place have departed and the view is filled with the lights of the city. The food (steelhead and prime rib) was excellent as was the unhurried service. With winter coming on I look forward to visiting S&S more often while the ambiance is most pleasant.

The food was great, but service was only acceptable. When in that environment, I should not have to ask for refill of coffee and water, as well as spoons for dessert.

We came to your restaurant to celebrate our anniversary and a birthday. The food was good, with the exception of the kale that was part of one of the meals ordered. It was so tough, it couldn't even be cut with the steak knife. Two of us ordered prime rib and although it tasted good, it looked like it had been put under a broiler to reheat. The server was very nice but our food took a very long time to arrive between courses - 30-40 minutes each time. We have been to the restaurant before an have never had such slow service or food we couldn't eat.

I have been a member of the club for many years and feel that things are going downhill. I used to bring business groups of 8-10 people to lunch, now they do not offer lunch. One of the draws was the way they served the chowder, putting it together at the table. Now they do not offer that. I used to love the Soup of The Day, now not offered.

They used to bring bread out at the beginning, now we needed to ask for it. I used to know most of the staff, now I do not recognize anyone.

I noticed a new Manager was present, but he never came to the table, nor did he say anything as we left even though we walked right past him.

Brought my boyfriend and his Mom for her 75th birthday brunch/lunch. Loved the variety of meal options, and we were given a table by the windows. Her dessert was comped without being asked, which was really thoughtful. The waitress was very attentive and gave great explanations for the specials. The food was all amazing, and the strawberry/basil soda I tried was really refreshing. I highly recommend this place for the food, the service, the attention to detail, and the ambiance.

The scallops we ate literally melted in your mouth. Excellent wine list as well. This is a special place for special occasions.

They have a very good reputation for being a great seafood restaurant. Based on this experience I would highly disagree. For as much money as I put down here, I expected more. I got a coho salmon with asparagus and mixed veggies no butter. You'd have thought the only thing they gave to season with was butter. My salmon was dry and tasteless, I could have made it better (and cheaper) myself. Same with the vegetables. No flavor whatsoever. The Wagu steak was good but nothing amazing. The crab was super stringy. The Wagu beef teriyaki was good flavor but very fatty and chewy. The server was VERY unatentive. Empty water glasses did not get filled for 30 min at least. The pumpkin cheesecake was exceptional though... Melted in my mouth. The ambiance was so dark that I could barely get good pictures or see the detail of the food. I will not be going back. For the price of this dinner, I should have been satisfied. But It wasn't.

We were seated quickly and our waiter came shortly after and took our drink order. He was very amiable and professional. He is our favorite waiter at Stanley's. We had the filet mignon and the tortellini. Both were excellent. The steak was cooked perfectly as was the pasta. I finished with a piece of pumpkin cheesecake. Scrumptious!

The seared ahi and prime rib were okay. They were boasted as being great meals but let us down. The decor looks original to the '81 opening from the worn seating down to the wall paper in the bathroom. The view was spectacular and helped to create an entertaining evening laughing about how over rated the place was.

I had heard great things about this place, so I guess my expectations were too high. My wife had the prime rib, I had the braised short ribs, and we shared the baked brie appetizer. The baked brie was delicious, I really enjoyed it. My wife's cut of prime rib was very fatty and the au jus was very salty. My braised short ribs were good, but the sauce was too sweet and the brussel sprouts were not trimmed properly and not cooked completely. They were also not roasted like the menu said. Perhaps I'm being picky, but if I'm paying $30-40 for a plate of food, it should be near perfect. It wasn't well-balanced. Overall, I'm glad we went, but I don't think I'd go back since it is so pricey and I've had better meals elsewhere in Tacoma.

I guess we expected more. The service was unimpressive, the bathrooms had dirty paper towels on the floor and the garbage was overflowing, grafitti, etc. - definitely due for a remodel. We were served more by our bus boy than our waiter and he was not particulary what one would expect at a high end restaurant. The entree salad sat in water. Anyway, we were a little underwhelmed by the whol thing.

Went for our anniversary. Got a window seat. Very nice. Waiter recommended a couple a specials. I had the scallops and they were great. Wife had seafood fettuccine and was very happy. Lots of seafood in the dish. Only draw back was I brought a special bottle of wine and the waiter seemed a little put off by it.
2009 Duckhorn 3 Palms. Great bottle and I even left half for him to try.
Highly recommend going here

It had been at least 5 years since our last visit. I suggested it to our friends for the location and food. I was so embarrassed, our friend ordered the 10 ounce steak. It was so tough he left 1/2 on his plate, my halibut was dry and overcooked. We frequent fine dining often. However we won't come back .
