The key theme for Stanford's is its "scratch-recipe kitchen", and there is clear attention to detail in all aspects of the menu. We came to enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, and we were very pleased with the offering. The turkey platter that we were served was excellent for both portion size and food quality. The pumpkin cheesecake to follow was... More

I liked this restaurant immediately because of it's ambiance of lighting and the layout. This restaurant is nicely compartmentalized and arranged so that you can actually hear the conversation of the person you came with and you don't need to shout so they can hear you! In addition to the comfortable environment, the menu had many enticing dinner options. I... More

I like their Happy Hour, good food and drinks. Service is always good too. The menu doesn't have a lot of variety. Half price wine bottles on Wednesdays is great.

I have never been disappointed by Standord's the food is always great, and the service makes it a special dining experience. The last time we went for a date night. I had the Steelhead special, and my husband had the prime rib. Both were delicious and cooked to perfection. Though we were completely stuffed, we couldn't resist the marionberry cheesecake....

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.
