Key Lime Pie
Great! Tom was a fantastic waiter! Food was super,
Great food, great service. Only disappointment was dessert. For their signature key lime pie, it was more whipped cream than key lime
Great to be back at Stanley drinks even better! It was a bit noisy and I’m glad they’re staying busy!1
Didn't get a window seat when one was available. Was seated next to the wall, felt cramped, I had a reservation days in advance.
The staff was great; the food....meh. We had 2 attempts to the appetizer and the brie was hard in the center; they didn't charge us. We found a barbecue brush bristle in the ribs bbq sauce. At that point we just didn't say anything more. Again, right now I guess it's a good thing people show up to work and they were great. But I really have no intention of going back. I know products are hard to find for everyone; but if you are unable to create a good food item; make it simple and good. I did appreciate that they did seat us at the window. It was kind that they put a candle in my husbands dessert for his birthday.
Blessings to all.
We had reservations for 7:30 - once there we requested a table with a vow of possible. After a short wait we were taken to a table with a view, served delicious cocktails and food. Our server was attentive and friendly. We were celebrating a birthday and we’re treated very well. First there dining with S caprese salad, French onion soup, prawn scampi and the salmon. 10/10 would recommend.
Jose garcia is the man! The food was great will definitely go back.
Food was good, service was excellent
Nice view, appears all tables have a nice view. I noted we were celebrating a birthday, no mention of it, no little scoop of ice cream…nothing.
Took my partner out to eat to treat him 🤍 Such a great choice I got the Almond seared scallops and my partner got the Chicken Dijon. Both were immaculate. The scallops were buttery and mouth watering. The Sauce that drenched the perfectly breaded and seared chicken was just delicious. And the portions were perfect, just enough for me to be full but want to go back for more. Truly can’t wait to go again and try other Dinner plates.
The hours state closed at 2100 (9pm). I made reservations for 9:45. I called at 9:35 to say I’ll be 5 min late. I was told come on in. I get there 9:48 and was told the kitchen was closed. I hope me being black was the reason why after I was told it’s ok. I even showed the manager the time of call on my cell. Too bad I was there for only a week. I’ll get the word out on this place.
Stanley & Seafort's made our 25th wedding anniversary WONDERFUL. Our celebration consisted mainly of going out to dinner. Last year we had an awful experience at another local restaurant where they were too busy making a mean spirited fuss about my husband's inability to wear a mask (he has a respiratory illness) while walking from door to table to put any effort into creating a good dining experience. So I approached this year's dining out experience with dread -- but what a wonderful difference! The hostess greeted us like a hostess -- like she was glad to see us. Without a fuss, she took us to the window table I had requested in our reservation. It was LOVELY. We had never been to Stanley & Seafort's. The view of Tacoma was excellent. We happily watched the gathering dusk and the lights coming on as we waited for our meal. Our server was truly a delightful person. She manifested sincere interest in us while she gave efficient and thoughtful service. Also, she was FUNNY. I'm SO sorry I didn't get her name so I could recommend that she get a raise. I ordered something I had not had before (always a risk), but I took our server's advice and she was correct -- my meal was terrific. Everything was cooked perfectly and, though the salmon with fennel relish that I ordered contained some ingredients that could overwhelm a dish, their flavors were skillfully balanced to produce deliciousness. The restaurant was very busy, but servers and others were working as an efficient team so that there was a feeling of calmness and order. We LOVED Stanley & Seafort's we will be back!
Excellent view from table by window. Our waitress was very kind and thoughtful. Food was excellent Would highly recommend it
Always have had great meals here
There were four of us, celebrating a birthday. We had reservations for a window seat. We wound up sitting in the bar area at a window seat because the one in general seating was taking too long. This area became very loud for about 20 minutes because of the workers at the bar, then thankfully it became quieter. My husband had the shrimp and grits and was very satisfied with his meal, so was one who had the BBQ ribs. Another had a burger. Flavor wise positive comments were made for each of these meals, however, they all arrived at our table lukewarm. Lukewarm french fries and meals are not good. The fourth dish was the 12 oz prime rib. It looked beautiful on the plate. Nice and pink. But it turned out to be the worst quality beef. I had to saw back and forth with the dull knife ten times (no exaggeration) with each piece before it would separate. No tenderness. $44 was way overpriced for this. Our Christmas prime rib at home is so much better! The waiter was quick with our water refills and attentive but I do wonder if he was a bit slow in getting our food to the table and that's why it was just lukewarm. The ambience was good and the scenery very nice but I think it will be some time before we come back here.
Food was good but uninspired, it was nothing special.
Food, drinks and service were outstanding!
Our dinner was just ok, nothing particularly special.
I ordered the truffle burger and got a mushroom burger. Not a big taste difference but when you offer something on the menu that’s what you should serve.
Always a pleasure at Stanley & Seaforts. Classy, refined with a great view of Commencement Bay. Staff is always attentive, hostess is sincere and knows names and preferences of guests. Food is top notch, drinks are eclectic and use local ingredients and distillers. Parking is easy or theres valet if so inclined.
I enjoy this ambiance. More down to earth quality of food and service than I would have thought, appreciate this quality! Soup too salty that’s all the criticism we ever have. All food is outstanding!
Everything was perfect. Emma took great care of us from the front desk to getting us a great table. Our waiter was excellent and made sure there was a glass of Champaign left to have with our desert. The calamari was excellent as were the coho salmon and fresh halibut. An amazing experience.
Our server Juan was great. Food was tasty. Onion soup was not what I expected. Amazing view of Tacoma.
Got seated early with no wait for our table. All staff was friendly and polite. Great service and great experience. Beautiful view from our table overlooking the port.
When arriving the hostess was friendly and accommodating. Purchased one of the more expensive bottles of wine and received dirty wine glasses to drink it out of. As the evening winded down the manager Mike was very rude and obvious about wanting us to leave. As my girlfriend and I waited for our UBER…OUTSIDE. We realized we had lost one of our masks. I went to see if the restaurant had an extra, only to be treated poorly and have profanity spoke at me continuously by Mike the manager. Once again waiting outside for a ride, Mike the manager came out to leave and made the comment “ The cameras are on, make sure you hit that right for us to watch later”. I have never been treated so poorly. I will never eat at this establishment again, especially if MIKE is still employed there!!
sat at the bar before our reservation, bartender was quick and made a strong drinks for us. At 7pm, hostess took us to our table. Service was quick and very friendly. The food is outstanding! the dessert, oh that was special. very tasty and yummy. Could not ask for a better night.
Food was excellent as was our waiter. We enjoyed the complimentary creme brulee.
We will return.
One of the waitresses was serving food with her mask around her chin. In this current age she needed to pay more attention to this. The food was good but not "over the top" which I was hoping for. We had a 6:00 reservation but showed up early, we were seated exactly on time. Thanks
Amazing experience with beautiful views of Tacoma and the bay. Will be back with friends soon!
We usually go here twice a year at least. Haven't been since the pandemic started. So great to be back there! We took my cousin who was visiting and it was such a fabulous evening! Can't say enough good about the experience!
Excellent restaurant has the best filet mignon I have ever tried
We were there a month ago and the appetizers and dinner were amazing! Last night the calamari had more deep fried artichokes than calamari, and the dinner was just ok nothing to brag about.
Incredible view and great service. Food was outstanding
Service was excellent as we have always experienced. Food was on point and delicious. I had the Halibut, blackened and it was cooked perfectly. Hubby opted for one of his favorites, their burger. Cooked perfectly. Always an excellent choice.
Great steak and seafood place. Expensive but worth it. Food, service, ambience, and views are all excellent.
My father took me here for lunch on a Tuesday afternoon. We had the rib-eye steaks and two appetizers, crab artichoke dip and shrimp with grits. All of the food was great! The view of Tacoma is also phenomenal. The only complaint I have is that the interior could use some love. The decor is very dated and kind of dusty looking. The sign out front is faded and not very inviting. I can see how out-of-towers would avoid this place if they just drove by it. The bar area looked as though it was a little more updated but if the entire dining space were to be renovated, this could easily become a more popular date night/special occasion destination!
It has a Great view of the port and sunset. We love to go there.
Food was excellent and service was excellent even though they were out of what we mostly wanted but that was to be expected as they were very busy but the server made great suggestions to alternatives that were excellent
Why make a reservation when they do not read it? Requested a window table, with two open window table, were seated on upper tier. Included information that it was a special occasion- then they asked if it was a special occasion....why provide that info if no one reads it.
My scallops were oily and over cooked. My veggies were held in the warmer too long, as it was mushy red peppers, peas, and onions.
Service and food are not what it used to be.
View is still great....
Great food! Toni was our server and she was exceptional. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
We've been the Stanley & Seafort's many times, but last night seemed to be the best. It started with excellent drinks followed by delicious food. Tiffany was the most attentive wait person and a lot of fun. Everyone around us was having a good time, too. They looked like they were at full capacity, but we didn't feel rushed. We'll be back.
