Not much to choose from on the menu but the steaks are good most of the time. There have been times when a steak is ordered a certain way and it comes cooked wrong, usually over cooked. Drinks are good, dimly lit, nice atmosphere.

I went with my daughter on a Sunday night. It was busy but not too busy. I ordered the French dip with house salad. It was really good. My daughter ordered Mahi Mahi with lobster risotto. The first time they served the fish was undercooked Our waiter was apologetic and tried everything to get it right the next time. And... More

Great staff - nice ambiance and good food offerings. Outdoor seating is great on nice days. Really enjoy the Califonia rolls with the ginger and wasabi.

I always go to Stanford's when I am in Hillsboro. I know this is a steak place but decided to test the fish tacos. They were fantastic. I love this place. I usually sit at the bar and the service is spectacular. I will be back my next visit.

After a long week of work and travel, we were looking for a quite but good meal. Stanford's did not disappoint. My husband had the prime rib and I had the special, beef filet medallions with sweet, sticky rice. I was pleasantly surprised to find the steak I ordered rare, actually came rare. Both our dinners were delicious, and the... More

Can get crowded at times. Service is not what it used to be.when Bob Farrell was one of the corporation founders. Still good food and now since they changed owners the happy hour menu is not what it used to be. ( I attended the grand opening as a guest).

I certainly didn't have a good experience at this place. Decided to wash my glass myself because I noticed too many flys hovering around the bar area. The food is classic fast food type so certainly not coming back.

This restaurant has so many different offerings it would work for people wanting different items. All of the food we purchased was very good as was the service.
