    My husband and I, have been coming here for at least 25 years. This visit did not disappoint until, a family of four were seated right across from us with two very young children. The kids were loud. Shouting and making so much noise. We were too far along in our meal to move. Really took the joy out of our date night. Plenty of other tables to accommodate a family with small noisy children. Service was great. Food was great.

    We used to be regulars at the Jantzen Beach Stanfords and are glad to be back. The new menu was a great variety of options. I opted for the prime rib and it was incredible along with the side of crispy brussel sprouts and mashed potatoes. My hubby had the ribs and he said they were amazing. Blair was our server and he's the best server we have had in a long time. We even observed him offering to walk an elderly customer to the door, she was very appriciative. We will ask for Blair the next time we go, he needs a big raise!

    This was the most awful experience I have ever had dining in a restaurant. I go to this Stanfords very often and it’s normally great but omg I couldn’t believe it. To begin our table was supposed to be ready at 7:15 but we did not get seated till 8 and the host was taking other people who came in after us and did not have a reservation! Second my friends steak was dry and so over cooked and the asparagus was raw! When I told our waiter he was very rude and took the plate not saying a word. Then she tried the steak and that was awful. We told the waiter And he pretty much told us NO ITS FINE. When he said that I couldn’t believe myself I was so upset. I said very upset let me speak to your manager right now. The manager came over and was just making excuses the entire time not apologizing and being also very rude! At the end of it she wouldn’t even comp the meal she just gave my friend a $25 gift card towards her meal which was a $40 meal! I cannot believe the service we had these people were awful! I’m going to corporate this afternoon ab this :)

    I would have given it 4 stars but not happy with the new menu as it is very top heavy on beef. I loved the old menu had more options. The halibut fish and chips was great, done perfectly, not dry halibut in the inside perfectly crisp. Please ad more fish and chicken options.

    Took 45 minutes to get water and soda, our food didn’t start to come out until the hour mark. Had a flight to catch and the staff didn’t seem to care that everything was taking much longer than normal. Won’t be returning.

    Didn’t honor gift cards that had no experation date. Restaurant was not full and a party of 4 were seated right next to us. They were nice and only spoke in conversational tones but because there were so few people in the restaurant it was hard not to hear their entire conversation. Seating them so close to us did not improve the service or amount of attention we got

    As always great job on food and service. Most servers think I’m kidding when I tell them I drink 3 glasses of Diet Coke before our appetizer will arrive. She brought me a pitcher and it was the right amount for the meal. No matter where we are seated, you do a great job. Thanks to Maggie H and the whole crew. Tom M Battle Ground Wa

    They were overwhelmed for Mother’s Day and the kitchen was backed up. We waited a really long time for our food but we stayed happy with drinks in the meantime. The server was very apologetic and comped a couple things to make up for it which we thought was fair. He did his best and had a great attitude about it, and we got pretty hungry but left happy. Will be back but will expect some lag time on busy days.

    As a vegan, I found your offerings extremely limited. I ordered the mushroom burger which was not especially great. The mushroom was tough and difficult to cut into. I would not order it again. It would great if you could offer more vegan options.

    The food was good as always. My only comment would be about the music - rather than pop music, maybe some smooth jazz or other instrumental music would better suit the surroundings.

    We were first-time customers at this hidden gem across the river from the 'Couve. Husband enjoyed a ($50!) steak for his birthday. He enjoyed it very much. I enjoyed roasted chicken (a little dry, but simple and homey) which came with excellent sides of soft and fluffy mashed potatoes and garden fresh green beans. The mocktails were fabulous: I had something with a rosemary twig in it and my kiddo had something with a lavender flower in it. Both were superb! The 3 of us had a well-made creme brulee...daughter licked the plate clean! Husband said to server that she won't need to put it in the dishwasher now...lol!

    Two of us ordered the Filet Mignon Cabernet Tips. Came with mushrooms, demi glace, parmesan garlic mashed potatoes, green beans. This dish was way too salty. One person couldn't even eat it due to the salt. The other two in the party had the following, 1. Baby back ribs which were fall off the bone delicious! 2. Had the house salad with steak slices which was also delicious.

    Food was good but over priced for some things. I would say stay away from the "Iconic Cheese Bread". For one it's nothing special and two most entrees come with garlic bread that my wife and I both preferred over the iconic. It was v-day so overall it was good.
