“Consistently great food”
Reviewed May 27, 2012 via mobile

We arrived early for our reservation and were seated fairly soon after that. Ashley was our server and she was excellent. She made sure we had everything we needed. Each one of us dining had a different entree and each entree was tasty and delicious. Everytime I have been to Stanfords my meal has been very good. Will definetly return

“Excellent Salmon”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

We have eaten here before and actually went out of our way to go there again now. The salmon was among the best that we have ever eaten. (We both had the same dish)
The service was good and friendly. But there was a certain something that keeps us from giving it a 5 star rating. We'll certainly go back.

“we have always had a good hot meal.”
Reviewed January 6, 2012

It is a quiet atmosphere with bar. It must get very busy at lunch and cocktail hour.

“Not a FruFru Walnut Creek Establishment”
Reviewed December 27, 2011

We've seen so many restaurants open in Walnut Creek which are geared for the Tiffany's set. That puts us out of the mix, of course, which makes Stanford's a prime destination for us. Food is great, the waitstaff is attentive, and I don't feel like a fish out of water. A fine spot for the working class folk who don't want to spend a few hundred on chow which is extremely overpriced.

“Atmosphere is perfect for good conversation and food.”
Reviewed November 20, 2011

It is difficult to find a good restaurant where you can actually hear what your companion is saying. Stanford's is the only mid-priced restaurant of which I know. Cozy booths, dimmed lighting, perfect service and good comfort food. I am glad this restaurant is in my home town.
