Food was good. Not expensive. Service was really good.
First of all the food is world class. I am the father of a chef and the son of a chef. So when it comes to fine dining I'm well schooled. This place is a five-star location no doubt about it. The wait staff was excellent the hostess was great the meal and desserts and appetizers was heavenly. I couldn't have planned for a better dining-out experience than what I have received at Stanley and Seafort's.
Traditional high-end restaurant. Great atmosphere, impeccable service. Menu is outstanding. A Tacoma landmark. One of our all-time favorite places to dine.
It was a great evening out. Had been there before and enjoyed it then and now.
I loved the atmosphere but my server seemed frazzled most of the time which lead to it taking about 20 25 minutes for drinks and another 10 for bread. Then my order was placed wrong. It did get fixed and they compted our desert. Which was nice but I wish it had been a little smoother of a night expecially since it was our first time here.
We enjoyed our dinner. We werent rushed and were able to relax and take in our surroundings.
Awesome dining experience. Great food and service. Thanks to our waitress Danielle and Scott, the GM, everything exceeds our expectations.
Food is good, parking is a nightmare!
found a peice of plastic in mash potatoes, everything else was awesome otherwise!
The food, atmosphere and service were very good but for our budget this is a once a decade or very special occasion restaurant due to the high cost of menu items especially when you have to order a salad separately.
We really have enjoyed both times we’ve had dinner at Stanley and Seafort’s. Staff and food were excellent.
Made a reservation for Stanley & Seafort's to celebrate my 46th birthday. Made my reservation online and requested a window table. Unfortunately, we didn't get a window seat even though a table was available. There was no mention of my birthday (I didn't expect them to do back flips but I DID write it on my reservation request) and the place felt old and outdated. Service was good the food was OK, nothing special. Was hoping for a little bit more I guess? I ordered a hot bar drink and it came warm . . . I don't know. Maybe I'm getting grumpy in my old age but I feel there were opportunities where they could have went above and beyond and they fell flat. It wasn't a bad experience just nothing exceptional. Thank goodness for the view - which was fun, but other than that - I don't think we'll be back.
Food and service was excellent. We had a great time
This was my second time coming here. My wife and I will be returning soon. Both of our experiences where spectacular. I don’t remember the waitress name, but, she was quick, professional, and genuine. They always allow you to socialize with your accompanying guest without extensive interruption.
Oh, of course, the food was top notch! You cannot go wrong with red meat here. The steak and rock salt prime rib are mouth-watering. My wife had the lobster tail added — we agreed it to be the best we have had. I am from the south, so I love key lime pie. I have not been able to find it in WA, till here. It is a treat, to say the least. Great cocktails as well!
Great food and view, the restaurant could use some remodeling. The restroom had a sink out of a order, no paper towels, no toilet seat covers, no hand soap. The staff really needs to maintain that and some of the ceilings in the restaurant looked yellow, food is on the pricier side so I had higher expectations on the overall look inside the restaurant.
Grea experience. I arrived early,they recommended bar till table opened. Service great and timely. Make you feel important. Appetitzers, entree-all second to none!!.
My wife and I were celebrating Valentines Day and my Birthday so I was expecting to spend some serious money, what I wasn't expecting was the horrendous service, mediocre food and lackluster comfort or ambiance.
We arrived at the restaurant early for our reservation and we were seated right away (this concludes the good to above average portion of my review)
We were seated directly under the air conditioning in the far back (nosebleed section) of the restaurant. So check one was that we had to leave our coats on while attempting to have a romantic meal and conversation.
We were seated at a table that had people literally walking over us and bumping into us to get to their seats.
We asked one of the 3 servers from our abstract corner of the room if we could move to the adjacent booth in order to avoid the AC that no one would turn off or down (stated it was set to a timer that could not be adjusted) We were allowed to move.
The young man who brought us our drinks and took our appetizer order was kind to us even though he advised that he was not our server and that we would surely have one soon.
Long story short, we never did get a server and the man that brought us our drinks, brought us our appetizers. The appetizers were decent though the grits were over boiled and mushy and it took quite some time to receive.
It took almost an hour to receive our entrees and instead of spreading that gap with our soup order, it was all brought out at the same time.
My water was not kept full so i had to drink my wife's water, it took my wife a good 20 minutes to get a refill on her wine and though I enjoyed my steak at the time, hers was bloody and she was unable to eat it. The rest of the meal was a poorly portioned veggie medley with potatoes that were dry in spite of the mccormick style brown gravy.
We both had bowel issues the following morning and if i had more space to write, I would. extremely disappointed. Spent way too much on a mediocre meal and worse service
Food was hot and delicious. Waitress was responsive, tentative and courteous. Will definitely be revisiting. However the reservation I made recorded but still waited 10 upon arrival.
it wad great.
We both felt it was lovely, I had sirloin and lobster tail and she had filet mignon. Both were prepared perfectly and the view was excellent!!!
We had a delightful early dinner with a fantastic wait person, delicious food, and wonderful ambience.
This was our 2nd Valentine's dinner with Stanley's and we will be celebrating here again in 2019. Never a disappointment.
We have been to Stanley & Seaforts many times over the years and were always pleased. I don't know if it was early Valentines rush for food or what but some of the calamari was lumped together too much when fried(giving it a gooey consistency)(much of it was very tasty)The lobster bisque I had waited and dreamed about was not as good.(smaller portion ,less lobster and the taste not as good.) The potato fingerlings were terribly overcooked and dry. The steak was not very well cooked and I could have sent it back, but didn't. Overall we were not thrilled this time . I hope it was just a bad night to go!!!!
The food was awesome would have liked the broccolini could have been cooked a little more but other than that small thing it was a great meal.
I requested a table right next to the window for a great view as it was our 14th Anniversary as well as Valentines Day. I was very pleased to see that they honored that request and we were given the best table for two by the window (and right next to the heater for my wife!) in the restaurant, as far as I was concerned. Thanks, S&S! The food was very delicious too.
Great venue for our Valentines dinner. Recommend evening to night visits to see the beautiful city below in full lights! We loved the view and the ambiance, as well as the superb, delectable top quality cuisine.
This place is pricey by Tacoma standards, but it was a special occasion and we had a gift card so we felt it was worth the indulgence. Our meal was excellent, and thanks to our waiter (Jose, I think) for the great recommendation of the Waygu Beef Wellington. Not to miss is the Broadway Pea Salad, a longtime favorite at S&S.
We went for Valentine’s Day and it was very good. People were dressed nicely but also people wearing jeans and a tee shirt.
We have been coming to S&S annually for our anniversary. We were married there 21 years ago. So we've seen just about everything. The food is outstanding. However, the kitchen seemed to be a bit off this evening. Clam chowder was warm, not hot. Brussels sprouts with pork chop not appealing; almost as bad as asparagus. The chop was perfect! The planked trout needed a magnifying glass to find it. About two inches wide and four inches long. Serving size disappointing for the price; taste was good although not very smoked. Key Lime Pie was a half serving, until our excellent server caught it and brought out the second half. As always, S&S servers are well attentive, suggestive selling and prompt service. On to year 22.
