We had a wonderful experience at Stanley and Seafort's. My friend had a fantastic birthday , mainly because of S&S. Our server was wonderful. The food was spectacular as well. From the perfectly breaded calamari to the delicious New York steak, I was impressed. The birthday girl texted the next day reminiscing on the food and the atmosphere. I'm from Anchorage and often visit the Simon and Seafort's there. With fantastic food and service coupled with the amazing view of Tacoma, I believe I have a new favorite. Win, Win and Win. Thank you!

I took the wife here for our anniversary dinner. This was the first time eating at this restaurant. The host took is right to our table when we arrived. The view of Tacoma was amazing! We ordered the crab and artichoke dip as an appetizer. We both took one bite and stopped. It had a super fishy taste. The waiter took it back and the manager came and apologized and took it off of our bill. Wedge salad was basic but tasted fresh. The main course was a 12oz New York ordered medium for both of us. When our steaks arrived, they were not hot, but warm. My steak was cooked great and had great flavor. The wifes steak was almost rare. She didnt want to hassle, so she decided to eat it. The parmesan crusted potato fingerlings were ok. They had more of a sweet flavor than a parmesan flavor. The vegetable mix was carrots, zucchini, and brussels sprouts. Decent flavor.

Overall, i expected more for the price, but we had a decent time.

We chose Stanley & Seafort's to celebrate our anniversary at a location we had not tried before. Because we had heard so many good things about it, we were looking forward to a good experience. However, we were less than impressed. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating, so that was not the problem. The view was also impressive, though we were seated a fair distance from being able to enjoy it, most likely due to accommodating my obvious mobility disability. I also felt the environment was showing its age with a worn out feel, especially in the bathroom. It was the food that was most disappointing. The filet mignons were barely seasoned, hence not very flavorful. The asparagus side consisted of super skinny spears that had very woody and inedible ends, akin to trying to bite through a toothpick. These could have easily been removed during food prep. I was not impressed by the potato pancake, but that's my own personal preference. Overall, we thought the food experience was mediocre at best and felt we would likely not return to this establishment.

Every so often I come here for dinner with my family but this is the second time my wife's entrée was not good. The manager is always more than willing to fix it, always offers to buy us dessert so there's no complaints there.. Employees are fantastic to us! Even the valet attendants that are working the evenings we dine here go out of their way to make sure we enjoy the evening. While I favor my expirences here, my wife usually insists we go somewhere else.

We have eaten here many times, a couple things were below normal high standards. Still, an overall good experience with fantastic food and top notch server. We had our reservation 6:15pm on a Sunday, got there 45 minutes early and still they seated us late. No big deal, but there were many empty tables, maybe they were short staffed. The bar server was fantastic and made for a very pleasant wait. When we were seated in an otherwise darkened dining room, we were in an uncomfortably bright spotlight. We asked the hostess why, and she said they were replacing the wrong bulbs they had bought as they burnt out, so there were two very bright bulbs in the whole dining area. A rather cheap move, to ruin the ambiance of two tables...we asked to be moved to another vacated table, same size as ours, being cleaned, two down and out of the spotlight. She said it was “unfortunately not available “, not even offering to check. When we told the very nice server who greeted us shortly thereafter that we had asked for the other table but the hostess didn’t offer to help us, she immediately left to check, and came right back to move us to said table away from the spotlight. We were then greeted by another fantastic server, who was super helpful. We noticed the normal menu was not there, but was more of a highlights menu. The server said the restaurant had reduced the menu due to the Garth Brooks concert. We both found that highly irritating, as there was no indication when we made the reservation that they weren’t offering the full menu. And seems like a long standing high quality restaurant wouldn’t reduce their menu to accommodate a few extra concert goers, but rather bring in a few extra staff to accommodate it. By 7:30pm, the restaurant was almost cleared out. However, the server asked the kitchen to prepare a couple of our favorite dishes from the normal menu, and they were able to do so. The view, food and service is great, the host staff leaves something to be desired.

I’ve dined here many times over the past 20 years and Sunday evening must have been an off night for the kitchen. Service was excellent but the food was cold and while I love al dente veggies, these were close to raw and cold. Appetizer was excellent. We paid way to much for the food we were served.

We both had prime rib. Mine was supposed to be med rare and it came rare. Mine was maybe 1/2" thick and hers was over 1" thick. The side veggies were not cooked enough.... almost raw. We both asked for creamy horseradish (it took forever to get it) and she brought us blue cheese. I hate blue cheese. We wanted dessert, but decided to go elsewhere.

It was my fiancees birthday and when I made the reservations they had given us a table by the window that overlooked Tacoma. Our server was very nice and sweet. The food was good, we very much enjoyed our lunch and although they did have a lunch menu they did let us order off of the dinner menu (my fiancees birthday is on Halloween and we could not go to dinner because we were taking our kids trick or treating). Overall the ambiance and the service and food was amazing and we will definitely be back again for another special occasion.

Our waiter Rob was very attentive, courteous, genuine, made great suggestions for food/beverages and took our photo to remember the evening. The restaurant gave us an anniversary card and complimentary dessert. Nice view from any seat. , Although busy, it was very quiet and romantic. The food was excellent and reasonably priced for the type/quality of food.

If this had been our first time there, would be the last. Prime rib was dry overcooked. Sent back came back the same. Vegetables were raw unseasoned, potatoes pasty no seasoning. The food was horrible! The restaurant smelled from the bathroom fresheners the minute you walked in, and permeated the entire restaurant. The floor was filthy as you walked in, as well as the table wood.

Cons:
*all but 2 of the handcapped parking spaces are across a somewhat busy street and there is no clearly marked crosswalk. I did not feel safe crossing the street
*our steaks were cooked to our specifications but mine had a large chunk of gristle
*potatoes au gratin were dried out and much too chewy
*apple pear cobbler had some fruit that was still raw (crunchy) and I could not find any cobbler topping under the ice cream
*the bar did not have a full size martini glass so I got a "baby" size martini glass with the remainder of my drink in a small bar glass
*our waiter kept coming back and apologizing that our drinks were not ready. He said everyone must have put in their drink orders at the same time????

All in all, our local Black Angus has better/more consistent food and the price is cheaper.
