“Embarrassing Entree'”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

I have been to Stanford's at three different locations and think highly of the overall experience. On this particular visit, I had two out of town colleagues and two customers with me for lunch. The service was great any my guests commented that they had a good lunch. However, the fish and chips that was ordered was embarrassing to say the least. The fish was small, overcooked and tasteless and the fries were old. Since I had some important guest with me, I did not have the liberty to turn away the meal.

I will most likely return to Stanford's as stated above, my overall experiences have been good. I post this only as a point of record so if there are repeated issues, the reader will have an opportunity to steer clear of those spots.

“Chain Restaurant that Feels Like One”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

With kobe beef burgers and a solid menu, you won't go hungry. Reasonable prices but nothing is really "wow" here. If you are staying at the Doubletree, you should go to the upscale restaurant named "Joey" which is in walking distance also. G to Stanford's with a group of older people.

“Nice Dinner Out”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

I went to Stanford's with a few coworkers. I had the salmon diane, and it was delicious. My coworkers had the peppered steak, cabernet steak, and pork loin. They all had great things to say about the flavor and preparation. I would definitely go again for a nice occasion.

“A delightful surprise find.”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

We would not have found this restaurant w/o Open Table. We needed a restaurant close to SEATAC Airport for supper before a late night departure. Stanford's popped up on Open Table and we gave it a shot. We were seated quickly in a quiet part of the restaurant which was perfect for 5 people who wanted to catch up on each other's summer activities. Carrie provided excellent service and told us about the $19.99 special of steak, lobster, shrimp, vegetables and potatoes. Four of us chose the special while the fifth order the Mac and cheese with bacon. We all wanted a taste of the Mac & Cheese w/ bacon so we ordered a side bowl of it. The steaks & shrimp were cooked perfectly, the 3-4 oz of lobster was delicious. We will be back!
