"We decided to go out to dinner Saturday and chose Stanford's in Walnut Creek. As usual, we had a great meal and had excellent service. We like that the restaurant is quiet and we can actually carry on a conversation. An added bonus, there is always plenty of parking on a Saturday night. We both chose a special they were having and neither of us were disappointed. Stanford's is also a great place ro meet friends for lunch."

"We all tried a special that included appetizer, entre and dessert and were all really impressed. There were four of us and it was a nice ending to an outing to a wonderful performance of the California Symphony. Can't wait to have lunch or dinner at Stanford's again."

"We were seated promptly. Great server, great food, great value. The party next to us was VERY LOUD l and having a good time which was fine, but our server apologized for it, which simply should that they were aware of how loud the part was which nice to see. Manager also came around and asked us how everything was, which was great. Honestly, no complaints here and we'll go back to Stanfords again for sure."

"A varied menu with lunch specials. A great place for women (or men) to have lunch as the way the restaurant is designed, you are never seated in a large noisy room. You can actually hear a conversation! Service is good, food good....pleasant all around!"

"3 courses for $20! Choices were quite good.
The only problem I had was the fish/potatoes were too salty!
Otherwise, you should check out this promotion.

"I've dined at Stanford's many times and everything has always been okay, not great but not bad. That is until last Saturday night....our server introduced himself as "Dan the man". We had the artichoke dip that arrived scalding HOT with flat bread that was like biting into concrete along with a few tortilla chips. All 3 of us ordered the fish tacos, they were okay but the service was HORRIBLE!! Our dinner plates sat on the table for 40 minutes! No kidding, no one ever stopped to pick them up. There never seemed to be a bus person around so we finally flag Dan the man down and asked him to please remove the dishes which he finally did. We ordered the skillet chocolate chip cookie dessert to share. We'll after 30+ minutes we stopped him once again asking what was taking SO long. His reply was, "Oh did you want me to ask them to hurry it up?" Duh! Yes we did!!! He was snarky and rather rude. Will we ever return to Stanford's.....NOT A CHANCE!! There are way too many other restaurants in WC with better food and service."

"We wanted to try the brunch for the first time. The cinnamon roll with icing was excellent. The eggs benedict were okay but not as great as most of the other food we have had there at other times."

"We were disappointed by only one thing. The day before we came to Stanford's we transferred points on our club account into $25 cash value which the operator told us was "instantly applied" to our membership card. When we paid the bill, the waitress told us our membership card was BLANK and contained no cash value. We drove a long way to this restaurant and were unhappy and irritated by this outcome.
The necessity to have to telephone the membership department beforehand to redeem points, rather than letting the waiter or waitress handle the redemption at the time of dining is stupid and cumbersome for the member. PLUS, at least in this case, the membership representative did not do it right, so we ended up with no redemption after all! All in all, a most disappointing experience. Our guest told me that he wouldn't sign up for membership, if he had to telephone first to redeem points. He was madder at Stanford's than we were!"

"Stanford's menu is always fresh and seasonal and delicious with choices for everyone. The staff is exceptional and always makes sure our experience is fun, celebratory and exceptional. I had a rude awakening to find out the afternoon of New Year's Eve that open table had cancelled my New Year's Eve reservation in error and Chris, the Manager at Stanford's corrected the problem so that we could enjoy a wonderful New Year's Eve in a 100% full restaurant. Stanford's are very customer oriented and the food is always prepared perfectly. I really appreciated the extra effort made to ensure that our New Year's Eve celebration was saved."
