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.
Pros: Good setting, great NY steak
