    This is a tired restaurant in desperate need of overhaul. The menu was reasonably broad to please any palate but unfortunately the end product didn't make the grade. Filet was dry and definitely not worth the $54 price tag. Ribeye got low grades as well and asperagus on each plate was over-cooked. The highlight of the food however was the Pt Reyes Bleu Cheese Salad. We all enjoyed it immensely. High Fives to our server, Scott, for his great service! Final grade was a C- from all in our party of 5. Our recomendation is: AVOID.

    Food was not up to par for the price. My husband had to change his order three times because they were out of the first two he ordered. Another person in our party ordered her prime rib medium rare. However, it came extremely rare and the mashed potatoes had a hard crust on them from being under a heat lamp too long. The only positive thing was our server. He was friendly, funny, attentive and concerned. Used to eat here a lot years ago and miss the great food they served then.

    We requested a cake in advance to celebrate my son’s wedding. It appeared upon arrival that no one read this request until then, where the hostess said “we don’t do that and do not have cake” We frequent nice restaurants all the time and even if they “don’t to that” or make cake they usually will offer something else, not here. Secondly, we asked if we could get a window table with a view. She said well, we seat people wherever we have available at the time all parties are present, so we’ll see what we have at that time. We did not get a window table, but did receive a decent table with a view. Our waiter was pleasant until he was taken away to help at the bar, and then it was adhoc on whomever was available to see if we needed more water or anything. The food was good and we enjoyed our meals. We have dined here in the past and had wonderful experiences, it just this time we felt unappreciated.

    We continue to come back here because the food is always so amazing, the staff is always very nice even if they’re new, if they’re experienced they’re so educated about the food, and the view and ambiance of the restaurant is just perfect. On top of all of that, it’s actually affordable which makes it perfect for any night out. Definitely recommend

    Hostess said we’d be seated when she got back, proceeded to walk past us multiple times and seat other parties that walked in and didn’t have reservations. Other than that, food and our waitress was great.

    Service was slow. Appetizer dishes, plates and silverware was never cleared before the entree arrived. No new silverware was provided. Steak knives were brought after the prime rib that three guests ordered. Had to ask the server to clear all the dishes at least 15 minutes after everyone in our party was finished eating and one dessert menu was provided. Understanding staffing can be an issue during threes crazy times, but Stanley and Seaforts is a higher end restaurant and should be prepared. The restaurant was only (estimated) 65% filled. Food was excellent however.

    The bread was great because we waited quite awhile for our meal. Salads and pea salad was so good. Fetticine was also good but the fries with the burger were awful. Chewy and cold. Everything else was outstanding!

    Celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary here and it did not disappoint. We were immediately greeted and congratulated on our anniversary. Seated within 5 minutes, amazing hostess ( older gal with blonde hair, apologies not no remember her name) she was incredibly warm and inviting and seated us. Within 1 minute of being seated our waitress Tony greeted us. Immediately took our drink order, constantly refilling our waters and checking in with us. The whole restaurant was packed & to be expected with how beautifully hot it was but that had no impact on our experience. Our food was INCREDIBLE. My goodness. They even gave us complimentary crème brûlée for the occasion and it was so sweet and thoughtful. I can’t rave enough about Tony! My husband and I have not had that kind of service in yearrrrs. We kind of just made peace with the fact good customer service is a dying art but man, she restored it! I just felt so bad when we walked by the kitchen in order to exit the restaurant, it was soo stinking hot and I just felt terrible for the kitchen staff. It was 100 degrees outside but it felt almost hotter inside. I never take time for reviews but I truly do feel Tony needs and deserves to be mentioned and recognized for her amazing service!

    Boyfriend’s birthday, his mom, and girlfriend (me). We were early for our reservation and hostess offered us Happy Hour seating in bar. Helped us with moving drinks to dining table. Eric was our friendly server who took excellent care of us from appetizer through dessert. Our food was delicious. We will definitely be back when we visit again from Oregon.

    Ambience and food was great! Our server may have had more dropped on them but they said we weretheir only table and we had a hard time getting them back to our table. Additionally they would take orders for half of the table when we arrived for drinks, but didn’t ask the other half of our table. Kind of strange. Overall a good time though

    Have been here many times over the years. It was where hubby and I had our first date and has been really special. Recently, this latest visit especially, the place is absolutely in decline. They have removed more than one of our favorite menu items, and while I used to love the entrée selection and the presentation, it felt like they just slapped my $40 steak on a plate with a single mediocre fondant potato and over cooked limp asparagus. Super disappointed that this once wonderful establishment has gone so far down hill. Likely will not be returning.

    Normally go to this restaurant frequently and have been for many years with my family this last experience was below par. Took a half an hour to get bread, too much vinegar on the salad I went to put some on my fork and the leaves flicked a bunch of vinegar into my left eye and burned. They took $5 off for that experience though.

    Sad they got rid of the warm bread or at least we didn't get any. They went from "in season vegetables" to creamed kale on their prime rib. I don't even want kale in the same kitchen as my prime rib let alone creamed. Little slow on service this trip. 15 minutes to get drinks after ordering. (not busy at the time) Room temp water, no ice. We've been going their for our Anniversary for over 40 years and this was the first time there was no comp on dessert. Some staff spent more time around the bar or hostess station in conversation. Overall it didn't change my mind about returning, but it also gave me thoughts about trying elsewhere for special occasions.

    We were celebrating a 40th Anniversary. Service was on point, waitress was great. Appetizer platter and drinks were very good. The main coarse prime rib was tough and no flavor 2 people ordered and had the same experience. The mahi mahi was dry, I couldn’t finish. Stanley Seaforts is our go to for special occasions due to the quality of food they offer. The last two visits have been very disappointing. We’ll be finding a new venue to celebrate.
