We requested a window seat through OpenTable, however we were told it was first come first serve. They allowed us to wait and ensured we were next for a window seat. The view was AMAZING. Service was great and our food was pretty good. Maybe a little higher priced for the food quality, but overall a great experience and i would go back. The rigatoni was absolutely delicious and the swordfish was cooked to perfection.

We had requested a window table when making our reservation. Upon arrival we were told that the only window table available was in the bar. The view was great but the ambiance and lighting in the bar was underwhelming. Probably OK for happy hour but not what you want with an upscale meal. The person who waited on us was great. We will probably come back and try the happy hour.

We went for our 40th anniversary and had the perfect back corner windowseat. We were well taken care of too! The only thing I would mention is maybe more of veggies with main meal. And some shredded horseradish for the steak! We will be back soon!

A mixed bag. Beautiful view of downtown Tacoma, the food was quite good but simple conversation was nearly impossible due to the extreme loudness Pacing was horrible. We went long periods of time waiting for our meals. My suggestion is NOT to go here on a Saturday night, we may go again but probably on a weeknight.

The location of our table had a great view but was chilly. Our server didn't seem to have a way to to warm the area.
Other than the temperature, the meal was delightful. We ordered to many dishes & had no room for dessert!

The view is fabulous. The interior is lovely. The drinks seem to be watered down. The bread delicious. Not much flavor to the calamari. The mashed potatoes had no flavor at all. It tasted like packaged. Asparagus was good. The prime rib is still good.
Our server was lovely. I regret to say that as far as food we will go somewhere else. We used to love this restaurant!

Don't mind waiting, but would appreciate a timely delivery of my cocktail while I wait. This a classic steakhouse with a predictable and reliable menu. We were accommodated with the quietest booth possible per our request. Generous portions...neither my husband nor I could finish our entree. We only had a salad...no starters. We had some view of the city lights even though we were at the very back. Will go again even though it is not inexpensive.

Our reservation was at the end of a busy Thanksgiving day. Staff were welcoming and attentive even though probably tired. Traditional dinner was good, with lots of turkey. Two of us took some home. I would have liked some yams. We will return for something more "gourmet" than a T'Day meal! We enjoyed ourselves and were last to leave. I liked that it was very busy earlier because it felt festive!

The meal was unrushed, even on a busy holiday. The service was attentive without being intrusive. As the sun set and the lights of the city came up, the view was breathtaking. Would highly recommend!

Thanksgiving dinner. Have dined at Stanley’s many times.
Food was just ok. Server was terrible not friendly and not on point. Took desert to go. When we ate the key lime pie it was just crust and cream. They forgot the key lime part. Will not be going back. Stanley’s has gone way done hill. We can cook a better meal at home. Laughable.

Our waitress and hostess were great. The food overall was great (a little dry on the salmon and under cooked fingerling potatoes). View was great from the bar, but Sunset is probably the best time to go for that. I was a little surprised that I was asked to pay a "Living Wage" fee, On principle how could you not feel to pay your employees a living wage when each dinner for 2 is a minimum of $100. Otherwise the experience was good.

Made a reservation for 6PM. Was told to hang out and they’d call me. Saw several tables open up and get seated, once I noted a 6:15 reservation (heard them check in) get seated before us I went back up to the host station to find they just “overlooked” us, and we would have sat there for hours if we didn’t come ask. Good food, good waitress, but that was very off putting.

Running a little late even with reservations but overall, the experience was exactly what we expect when we go to Stanley and Seafort's. We enjoy the view and the food was cooked as we ordered it. One of our favorite places to celebrate milestones of any kind. We will be back.

Fabulous scallops! Dinner servings were the right size in a lovely presentation, importantly, hot. Great Pinot Noir. Baked Brie was delicious. Service impeccable and attentive. This restaurant is one of the finest in Tacoma. So glad we came back after years of not going there. Cannot wait to return.

Some of the food was amazing but some was dry like the crab. The price was crazy high on the steaks considering that with the steak I got 1/4 of a potato, literally one slice, and asparagus which I asked to be substituted for any other vegetables or more potatoes, it wasn’t. The interior was clean but what’s the point of having window views if the outside of the windows are dirty, obstructing the view. Lastly the bathrooms….wow…..they look like they came out of a bad 80s night club. It’s like the whole place was fix up but the nasty/dirty bathrooms… I’ve seen nicer Walmart bathrooms.
