I dined here and wasn't impressed with the quality of the food at all. The steak "filet mignon" was a little extra soft and other dishes were a lot saltier than they should be.

Thank you for your review Azzouni. We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your steak or the saltiness of your food. We are always happy to accommodate personal tastes and can leave certain seasonings off if you ask your server :) No problem! As far as the soft steak, we use high quality meats from Fulton Provision... More

WE have been eating here for years. We go to Portland three times a year. This is a great place to share with friends. The bar part is great for eatingb also. The wines and mixed drinks are a great quality. The entrees are wonderful. The portions of food are just right.

We were weary after a very long drive, and stopped here for lunch. The fish and chips were delicious... Haddock fish, and cooked to perfection. I also had the bean soup. Which was very tasty. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. She even told us a fast route to the airport! We would definitely come here again. The dinner menu... More

I love Stanford's. They usually have good food and great ambiance. Came in on a Monday night and ordered a steak, a rarity for me. It was thick, dry outside and juicy inside. The wings were too bready for my liking. It is just too much money, ~$50 per person, for what you get.

Thank you for your review. I'm glad that you enjoyed your steak! We can always bread our wings a little lighter for you if you'd like :) Just let your server know and we'll do all we can! A great way to enjoy our food for less is come to our happy hour in the bar daily from 3pm-6pm, 9pm... More

The food here is good. Its a chain so you can expect good food but nothing to go out of your way for. The service was fine and the ambiance works too. Not exciting but your money will be fairly spent.

Nice selection of American meat and potato favorites, my family enjoyed talking in our booth without noise from surrounding patrons. My wife and I got the prix fixe ($19.95) with three courses (grilled salmon for her and spare ribs for me) including a huge Creme brûlée for dessert. No crumb was spared! My daughter went upscale for a tender filet... More

My husband and I drive a truck and right now we are doing a dedicated run which leaves us in Portland OR every Monday. Always looking for something to do we try a lot of restaurants. Stanford was not a disappointment. Everything was absolutely delicious, service was first class.
