Went in around 7pm. Server took a long time to take are order. Refills had to be flagged down. Almost a hour after we ordered our drinks our food arrived. It was one of the rare times I didn't want to leave a tip, but it was left anyway. We were in the back of restaurant next to a large... More

You can't go wrong with the seafood here and the sandwiches, soups, and salads don't disappoint. Stanford's has a full bar, great happy hour, and dining area for small or large groups. A great place to meet while in west Portland area.

On a recent visit to Beaverton we had diner at Stanfords twice - once at the Portland Airport and again in Hillsboro. Both times the food was good. The one time the wine was 50% off a bottle, which made it a great deal since a bottle of Malbec was the same price as 2 glasses! The only negative was... More

We had a really good happy hour experience. On Wednesday's bottles of wine are half price, the service was friendly and prompt, the happy hour food menu is quite large with individual dishes and items to share.

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.
