Went to Stanford's for the first time to have dinner. I was very impressed. The food and service were excellent. My hubby had prime rib and I had ribs and halibut. Very enjoyable meal. Was a little pricey but you get what you pay for. We will probably be back.

I used to really like Stanford's, but the quality is just not there anymore. The waiters try like heck, but the food is just bland and not hot. I need hot (temperature-wise) food, and it needs to be not so bland. Maybe that's what millenials want. Don't know. Might go back for lunch - you know like fish and chips... More

We visited Stanford's for the first time and joined their rewards plan. The atmosphere was lovely, staff was very efficient, friendly & welcoming. A little pricey, but the food was excellent! We really enjoyed ourselves and the food. If you want to treat yourself to fine dining, this is a good place to do it.

Very disappointed with the service, and meal. Was dining with eight business associates, each ordered, I ordered a Burger Well Done. Meals were delivered, my burger was "Rare". I waited patiently for the server to check on the product that he delivered. Twenty minutes later he checked. Service and meal was unacceptable! Stanford's is not owned by Bob Farrel!

Very sorry to hear about your experience. A "Rare" burger should be the easiest to cook. I'd love to be able to make it up to you. Bob Farrel - you are correct is no longer with us - he passed away a while ago, but his memory and his philosophy still live amongst us, who new him - his... More

Stanford's an excellent choice for a place to meet, celebrate or just enjoy a meal at. The Bar does an incredible job with a prompt and efficient wait staff throughout the restaurant. Fielding a decent Happy Hour with many choices for topping off the hunger pit. The Appetizers themselves can be meals for the light eater or great gut bombs... More

This restaurant is located near our home so we patronize fairly frequently. The food is top-notch, service is great. We visited this last time late in the evening and ordered an appetizer plus salads. Appetizer (calamari) was delivered promptly. Salads came shortly after, but there was an error in the kitchen so they were a little late arriving. When fixing... More

Always have great service in the lounge. Happy hour drinks and eats are good, but we usually eat off of the menu. Kate is a great server and Stanford's menu and specials always please. They accommodate my diabetic needs and we always leave satisfied. Their current sampler menu with appetizer, entrée, and dessert is particularly good!

Had lunch and dinner here while in Hillsboro on business. The turkey curry soup was very nice for lunch and the chicken wings and pizza along with a few pints of Bluemoon went down well for dinner. Staff were excellent.

Shared meals for a group of four persons. Disappointed with starters of calamari - virtually all bread crumbs - little calamari! Main course of rib eye steak - excellent - very good steak.

We ordered fish n chips, filet mignon and spicy ahi sushi. Our waitress was attentive and courteous. Everything tasted great and the serving portions were pretty big. I thought that my cocktail (ginger pear) was watered down but my friends loved what they ordered (American mule and a long island). Plenty of parking, ample seating , great ambiance. Not many...
