I have been going to Standford`s for years. Used to go to the one on River Place but since I moved to Lake Oswego went to the one in the area. My visit a months ago was my last one. The waitress was ruled and condescending. I really did not feel like having a drink AT THAT SECOND. I told her that I??d like to order food first and drink later. She said NO- have to order the drink first and UNLESS I order a drink she will not take our food order. When she came back later I??ve pointed at the menu that there is not drink requirement?. she interrupted me and said that it does not matter what the menu says and I HAVE TO order a drink and if it??s not a ??good deal for you- you should leave?. I??ve never being treated like that in any restaurant. I will never go there, ever.

I have been to this restraunt many times. The food is always good and the service is excellent. They have a great happy hour menu. It is a good place to go if you are downtown on the waterfront.

Pros: Food, Service, Location

.

Great menu, and very good food. I love the location down on the south waterfront. Their service is always very good, and love going to their bar for a drink after work.

I always hate to give a local business an "average" rating, and I seldom make any comments, but I think Stanfords needs to get real about prices. Just for the heck of it, I tried a $25 entre', a fish plate, and received two small skewers of one prawn, one mussel, etc. Not worth the buck. And then draft beer was $5.50 per pint. There is nothing special about the restaurant's interior, food or service that warrents jacked prices. I would recommend finding another place to eat.

I thought this was at least middle class but no, it was one of the worst experiences i had. There were four ppl with me and three asked for special orders the only person they did not mess up on is the one who ordered exactly as it was on the menu. They forgot my sauce three times (i had to remind them). So when i did get my sauce there were pieces of something green in it that did not belong there Disgusting. The quality of the food even worse. Would never go there again. I do not recomend this place.

My wife and I were secret shoppers for many years, so we know what to look for in a restaurant. Stanford's nearly hits it out of the park. The environment is cozy yet formal for most types for dining (casual to business). The food was mixed. The main course, grilled steak, was excellent, but their signature artichoke dip wasn't completely heated, so when she brought it back, it was the same plating, so i'm assuming she just zapped it in the microwave. My wife had a salad which she enjoyed, but those are tought to screw up on...sorry, I'm a carnivore and never order salads, so can't compare!
Service was fantastic. Multiple people stopping by to take used dishes, and they ones we dealt with were quite friendly, and inquired about our recent move to the area.
Will be back, and hope the Stanford's in Hillsboro is just as good.
