Stanley & Seafort's. Great view. Excellent service. Fantastic stuffed King salmon. Higher end menu price-wise. Make sure you call ahead and reserve a window table.

Valet service is a nice plus. Seating selection is poor, tried to stick us in the back when there were several open tables view good views. I called ahead and they said they had plenty of seating. Had to ask for a better table, which Maître de did accomodate. Food as always is very good quality, but it is not cheap. The Mai Tai was awful (just orange juice with rum, no garnishment, ). Dinner, drinks and desert for two with tips can set you back $175. Maître de needs to be not discriminate in her seating selection just because two women are dining together. We spend money too. I will continue to go back for special occasions. I just won't order the Mai Tai.

Decided to visit Stanley & Seafort's for a special dinner, and even though we arrived 10 minutes early we were immediately escorted to a table in the farthest corner of the restaurant. My husband requested a table closer to the windows for a better view of downtown Tacoma and the waterfront--plus, there wasn't another diner anywhere near us. We were soon escorted to another table near others with a better view. The waiter came and brought menus saying he'd be right back for our drink order. We looked at our menus and waited and waited for his return. He finally returned, apologized for the delay, and took our orders for wine (3 oz. or 6 oz.--which I think is ridiculous). We should have given our dinner order at the same time as it was a long time before we received our wine, Again he apologized and said he'd be right back for our dinner orders. Wait...wait...wait! Once we ordered and received our food, our waiter offered to bring my husband another glass of wine--when he did after my husband was finished with his meal. I ordered the $30 scallops--a total of three medium-to-large scallops which were on the rubbery side and a bit fishy tasting. My husband enjoyed his roasted chicken and my 25-year-old daughter enjoyed her prime rib. Then again you can buy a delicious rotisserie chicken at Costco for $5--and my husband's chicken didn't taste any better than Costco's and it cost $20+. Overall it was a disappointing evening.

We have ate here once before...maybe 8 years ago but do not remember anything being special except for the view...but this is now our favorite restaurant to eat at in the tacoma area. It used to be el gauchos but stanleys surpassed it in all areas. My family of 4 ate here (boys 10 and 15...yes, they are foodies) at sunset for dinner. The service was great and the food was absolutely wonderful. We will certainly be back!!!
