Hands down one of my Fave restaurants in LA. Stanley's is a true gem on Ventura Blvd. It's so relaxed, laid-back, and chill. The outside patio area is peaceful, great place to take friends and family for lunch. Lovely ambiance, unique

Stanley's salads are genius. Especially Amy's Grapefruit salad. I know you are thinking how can a salad be something to be excited about but seriously, these are really filling and delicious salads. They have plenty of other choices for

Met a friend here for a business-type lunch. Very busy place at lunch time. However, service was fast and food arrived quickly. Had a veggie burger with the mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables. It was great. I really enjoyed it.

I am in love with their Coconut Shrimp. I also would eat their chicken wings at the drop of a hat. The attitude and the air of the place is not puffy and stuck up. The employees are nice and pleasant and are happy that you are their. I will eat at Stanley's over and over again.

They get one star for the bread.
Ordered a turkey burger and it came raw in the middle.
Server was not pleasant.

The restaurant was half full on a Saturday night and yet we could not be seated without waiting. After 5+ minutes (checked the clock twice) of sitting with no person even acknowledging our presence we left. Have fun if you go.

I ordered the rotisserie chicken and my dad ordered the chopped salad. For an appetizer we ordered the calamari. My rotisserie chicken seemed like it was cooked two days ago and then re-heated in the microwave. It was dry and when I would cut it up it would crumble into little pieces. I think that the rotisserie chicken that you can buy at Ralph's is much better.

In my dad's chopped salad everything was a light greenish gray color with canned mushy red peppers on top. It could be called canned instead of chopped salad. Don't even get me started on the calamari. That stuff was downright nasty and drenched in oil. The lemonade was great. Thanks for the refill.

What more can I say? Clean, delicious food, unique CA cuisine menu, freshly baked warm sourdough bread on every table, eclectic art on the walls, aspiring actors and actresses as your waiters and waitresses (what more would you expect in Sherman Oaks?). I had my engagement shower here, my 30th b-day party here, my baby showers here....need I say more? If you have not been here you are missing out!

The very best Cajun Chicken Salad I have ever tasted! Just a bit spicy, not too much. They also have a wonderful chinese chicken salad - their sourdough bread is always fresh and warm. Often you can see a celebrity or two lunching with their agent.

My husband and I eat there at least once a week. We like it because they have a great selection of food - stuff he'll like (i.e., burgers, steak) and stuff i'll like (salads, appetizers, pizza). By the way, their hot wings are awesome!! I highly recommend it if you are interested in great food at a good price. The only thing that stinks is that they don't deliver.

My wife turned me on to Stanley's. It's a great little restaurant in Sherman Oaks. They have a great back patio and a very helpful staff. My wife loves the salads and I have enjoyed many of the dishes there. A+

I ate there today, 02/10/08. I did order the burger medium-rare. It came out medium-well. That's also happened to me at Stanley's before. I've had many good meals there over the years, but now I've had my last one there. Too many times the meat or fish is overcooked, and then brought to the table luke-warm. Not good. The response of the waiter today? It's not my fault. The kitchen screwed it up. That made me feel so much better.....

I've had the Chinese chicken salad about a dozen times. Its fantastic. Nothing fancy, just delicious. My girlfriend recommends the grilled artichoke. Both are excellent. If you want pizza go to a pizza place. Also, if you don't want an overdone burger, ask for medium-rare, or rare.

Cons: Parking.

Since the parking lot always looks packed & there are people always outside I figured this was probably a good place to eat. Well the first time, I had the bbq chicken pizza...it was nothing special at all ! I think you can probably get a better pizza in the frozen section at the market ! I decided to give it one more shot...so on my 2nd visit I got the patty melt. The hamburger meat was SO over done, it was completely dried out. The cheese wasn't even melted. This place is horrible ! I will never eat here again. I can't figure out what the hype is all about.

This restaurant is very good. The menu has a variety of choices, and the food is very good. The prices are about average, but well worth it. They have outside seating as well for smokers.

I have been to Stanley's probably about 100 times in the last year. When I discovered it, I wasn't expecting much. The inside isn't all that fancy, and I was anticipating an "average" meal. I was wrong!!! I was surprised at how great the food is. Their sourdough bread is amazing. And if you sit at the bar for happy hour, you get free veggies and spinach dip. Also try the chicken strips as an appetizer...they are great. If you are looking for a nice, reasonably-priced meal in a low-key setting, this is the place to be.

Very roomy w/ nice decor. Service is spotty and inconsistent. Valet parking is a huge plus on the parking deprived Ventura Blvd. Large portions and decent prices. I wanted to sit on the great patio one afternoon and they told me it was closed. Why?

You just have to love the bar here, big, square and inviting. The atmosphere is comfortable, snobs will have to go elsewhere. The food is a nice blend of salads (Amy's Grapefruit is delicious), pizzas, and entrees. My favorite dessert is the chocolate chip cookie pie, smothered with a layer of hot fudge on top. This is the kind of place you can go to and enjoy a cocktail, a whole dinner, or even just dessert. It has a neighborhood feel. There is outdoor seating available - another plus. Don't miss the artichoke appetizer.
