Interesting Spot for Brunch
This was our first visit. Greeted at the door by the manager, somehow he missed noting our reservation. Food was great, very good Chicken and Waffles and quite possibly the best bloody mary I have had in some time. Server didn't seem to know the brunch menu very well and wasn't around very much. All in all though, great place with great potential. We will be back for certain.

Mother's Day Success
Took parents for Mom's Day brunch. Mom scored big w/ the crabcake benedict (amazing!). Dad got the biscuits, steak and gravy dish which was also tasty (although he said he had to stop eating the biscuits because they were too heavy). Unfortunately my brioche french toast was lackluster compared to the other two dishes. Not only was it boring, but it got cold & hard quick.
The coffee and oj were both fantastic. But having to wait over 30 minutes for your meals? Not so hot. Especially because the restaurant was no where booked to capacity (despite the hostess saying that she could not seat us outside bc they were full). I would come back for the food but if this is "standard service" for the "Standard Pour" it might be my last...

Great Drinks And Great Food
The Standard Pour is our go to option for when we want a great drink that's unique, and something great to eat. I've never had a bad dish or bad service. Staff is always friendly and welcoming, all around a great place

Beautiful Women Filled the Room
Where are all the young men in Dallas? They should've been @ the Standard Pour last Wednesday. Tables full of stylish women chattered happily at almost every table. Next time we will get there earlier for a better indoor table - while the pation was lovely, the traffic was a bit too loud to be enjoyable. The food was yummy and our server attentive. We will be back!

Nice restaurant located Uptown.
Nice restaurant located Uptown. Waitress was not so pleasant telling us that they will need the table in 2 hours so we shouldn't take too long during dinner (even though the restaurant was barely half full and remained so up until we left). Service was slow and the waitress was not too pleasant to deal with either. The appetizer rum spritzer drink was delicious and a nice start to dinner. The lobster nachos were good but small in portion. The ladies ordered off of the Dame's Dinner Club menu. The salads were nice, the pasta and the fish entree options were delicious but quite small in portion. The fish was unique in flavor. The desserts were yummy for strawberries and sabayon. Will be back to try other menu items.

The Standard Pour was, as always, fantastic! The drinks alone are worth the trip, but the food is not a bad second...because they are so busy, sometimes it was hard to flag our server down, but we just wanted to enjoy the night anyway, so it was just fine.

Went for the first time and had brunch, I had their crab benedict. No english muffin but a potato pancake instead. I did not like the crab but as it was a crab cake, I just removed it and ate the egg and potato. I ate to much of the dessert bread they serve when you arrive. Staff was friendly. I would try dinner there

A really good, original artisanal b
Both drinks and food were very creative and reasonably priced, quality considered. For cocktails, you MUST try the Brimstone, that drink is like seeing STAR WARS for the first time. In the theatre. In the original cut where Han shot first.

Great bar with knowledgable bartenders -- The food was pretty good but the chicken strips and Brussels sprouts were too salty. The lamb ravioli were very good but VERY small portion for $21. The French fries may be their best item which works great for me because I want to go back and like to have something to eat when I drink.

We went on a Friday night - wasn't crowded at all. Bartender was great, server was great. As every review states, they are proud of their cocktails; I had a specialty cocktail (The Birdsong), which was fantastic and worth the price. My friend, however, had a standard martini, and for the teeny tiny size of it, you'd not expect to drop $10.
Cheese board, brussel sprouts, mac & cheese - all very good. The lobster nachos were good but tasted fishy, so I wouldn't order those again.
All in all, cool vibe - great staff - really good experience. We will be back.

I really like Standard Pour
I really like Standard Pour and I think Dame's Dinner is such a fun idea!

Dame's Dinner Club
I ordered the Spiced Popcorn from the regular menu. Buttered popcorn with tagarashi, toasted cashews and scallions~ I practically licked the bowl it was so good! My first course was sweet potato soup, served very savory and perfectly seasoned with a hint of curry. Second course was pasta served with grilled pumpkin, dried figs and balsamic sauce. It was such an interesting combination of flavors. It was the best pasta dish that I had ever eaten, even better than dishes that I've eaten in Italy!! Lastly, we were served a grilled pound cake with bourbon soaked fresh peaches. Superb! A first class establishment all the way around. I cannot wait to go back. Might mention, they serve an awesome Manhattan as well!

Warm and cozy
We loved it- we could have been in an English pub or a cozy hip bar in NYC.
Awesome pretzels, beautiful copper serving cups,
Gorgeous bar. Will recommend and go back often.
