    My husband and I spent our first anniversary evening in the Standard and the food and service did not disappoint. We had a fantastic table which was romantic but also had a great atmosphere. The waiting staff were fantastic, so attentive and gave us really good advice on cocktails and stopped us ordering too much food which was great. There was a great buzz about the place and the food was good too. The only negative was the broccoli we had didn't taste great but the Porter House steak was huge and delicious as were both our starters. I would certainly recommend to friends going there.

    The back room is attractive and comfortable and the staff is friendly and attentive. Our salad was pleasant but nothing very special. Our steak was fantastic as was our side of broccoli rabe. I must say that the bread was truly delicious as well. We also enjoyed the radishes and the bit of parmigiana which are nibbles that they give you as you look at the menu- a nice touch. By 9:00 the noise level became a bit overwhelming. It was difficult to talk and we were just 2 people. Nonetheless, it was delicious and we would return when we want to eat near The Highline.

    Took 4 daughters to the Standard Grill for a special-treat lunch. It was a great call--burgers & fries were fab, cheese & specialty meat platter was fun and delicious, the Cookies & Milk dessert a huge hit and the eclectic, yet cozy atmosphere made it cool even though they were with Mom. Top it all off with a photo booth session--immediately instagramed to all friends--and everyone was happy. Option to play ping pong while waiting for food is also a big draw. Negatives: not a lot of salad choices & the veggie burger tasted more like a falafel.

    The service was not attentive (uneven pace, one appetizer showed up twice and side orders forgotten), my salmon was served Luke warm and the flavour of the dish was very ordinary. It would seem the restaurant is having challenges with front of house service as well as the kitchen. All in all a disappointing experience although I'm happy to say it did not ruin evening.

    I've come here multiple times before. I tried something different this time and have decided that the eggs Benedict is by far the best thing on the menu (is what I usually get). The brioche doughnuts are a must. Brunch cocktails are expensive and all and all not worth it. And the service is really hit or miss. Our server was rude and horrible, but because I've been multiple times, I'll pribably go back. However, if that had been my first experience, I definitely would not to back. But because of the poor service, I will be trying somewhere else for brunch next time.

    The food was delicious. Two things, the crispy potatoes, side order, were a bit lame and with the high price of the rib eye for two I think they should include fries, especially since it comes with Bearnaise. The wonderful chocolate mousse-whipped cream-thingy to share... should be warned by the waiter that it's way too much for 2 people...if you're 4 go right ahead and share! The waiter was pleasant but a bit rushed. Had to ask for a drink order before the food order. Very good otherwise!

    We ordered the porterhouse steak for two and could hardly chew the meet. It was grotesquely under the expected quality. After a little back and forward with our waiter and the manager, we eventually didn't pay for it. But in retrospektive, a place like the standard should have never sent that piece of meet out of the kitchen. It was a big disappointment.

    We decided to end our NYC-trip with a dinner at The Standard Grill. The reviews were good and the location seemed amazing. After a cocktail at rooftopbar Le Bain, we descended to the restaurant and were very friendly welcomed by the staff. Our waitress that day was very patient to explainus everything about the menu. The restaurant was full and thus very noisy, but the food was great (grilled octopus as a starter, scallops as an entree), as well as the wine and bread (never underestimate the bread & butter :)). And although it did get very noisy, the staff took care of everything so smoothly and the environment was so beautiful, that we still spent an irritable-free and tasty evening!

    The Standard Grill was one of the very best restaurants I visited during my ten day holiday in New York, and I went to quite a few! The menu was interesting with subtle flavours and interesting accompaniments. The chocolate dessert was a slow descent under the table moment - gorgeous! The service was good, wine prices reasonable. It's a gem of a restaurant and thoroughly recommended.

    We dined outdoors on a beautiful Saturday night in late Sept...The grilled octopus salad and whole roasted chicken entrée for 2 were both outstanding! The wine list has many excellent choices at all price points. We also enjoyed the inside bar both before and after dinner...the staff were all very friendly and attentive...we will definitely be going back....

    The Octopus Salad is AMAZING - we had 3 orders. Wait staff was very attentive. Atmosphere is great. Overall a perfect restaurant for a date or fun with friends (this coming from a Washington, DC person who dines out quite a bit). If you are into quiet ambiance, this might not be the scene for you since it is rather 'open concept' seating with a good (not too pretentious) vibe - would recommend requesting one of the half-moon booths. Not suitable for the NYC tourist in shorts and tennis shoes, would not recommend it for families with young children (and I have young children, so I know what I am talking about here).

    Walked the High Line to the restaurant which provided a nice start to our evening. The restaurant and bar was extremely busy and I was a little concerned that the quality may suffer as a result. I am delighted to say my worries were unfounded. I started with grilled Octopus which was heavenly followed by one of the most succulent Pork Chops I have ever tasted. Our waitress was friendly and helpful and the food was delivered in timely fashion with just the right amount of time between courses. If you are looking for a vibrant and lively restaurant with very good food, this is it! Great Bier Garten next door with a Oompah Band to finish of a very pleasant evening, would definitely return.

    They had our reservation a few weeks earlier and upgrDed our table for Saturday brunch because of that. Ask for a table under the pergola and if you're a party if 2-3, request the small corner table. Very inviting, full if character ambience and food and great wait staff. Rise early and head from midtown on foot down Broadway through the parks then back best through Greenwich Village to time your brunch. The take the High Line back north. Perfect.

    I went there on a sunday at 1pm for brunch. I had made a reservation and it was the most wonderful experience. We arrived promptly at 1. We were seated. We were brought coffee and water. The coffee was delicious! I loved the sugar cubes for the coffee as well. I had Eggs Benedict and it was amazing. The potatoes were the best I have ever had. We got Bloody Mary's which were so yummy! The downstairs bathroom was a little tricky with the mirrors haha but I loved the photobooth. I left there feeling better than I had when I arrived. I would recommend it to friend and definitely return. It was such a beautiful place. <3

    I went here with 6 people for dinner and was lucky enough to get a reservation on the day we wanted to dine (even though it was a Saturday). Phenomenal service and attention to detail. Our server was incredibly knowledgeable about the menu items, and guided our decisions well, at one point even surprising us (at our request) with his own choices for the charcuterie plate. The atmosphere is fun and vibrant. Dress to impress, but don't stress if you've had a day on the town, just want a great dinner and don't have time to fix yourself up to the nines. Comfortable and fun. We tried almost all of the desserts, but the Banoffee Pie was the winner. Also, don't leave without trying at least one cocktail (Roman Holiday is my new favorite)!

    Let me first say the dining experience was good It was expected but commendable. Good attention to detail and thorough service However..As for lebain... Completely disgusted by the bouncers tonight..discourteous and disrespectful. As someone from Australia..It's not the way to treat someone I don't remember his name...but he kept harping on about how I wasn't a patron of standard...even though we spent 300 dollars at the restaurant..it's the delivery and tone that was highly unprofessional. No sincerity or concept of a customer... I went to another line and the guy told me to go back in that line because there was a private function. He said sure you can line up for public. So I did and the guy at that front gave me an earful.

    One of my fav places for lunch &/or dinner when I'm staying in the meat packing district. FCor a restaurant that has a decided wow factor at night via its gorgeous clientele, The Standard Grill has altogether excellent food & drink. And don't get me started on The Closer, their pot of incredible chocolate that's part mousse/part pudding, topped with home-mad whipped cream & chocolate shavings. If you're two, order the half portion, otherwise you're likely to go into a chocolate coma! Highly recommended.

    Great food in a good atmosphere. Celebrated a birthday and the staff was very friendly, service minded and alert and even helped us on forehand to pick out a dessert that they sent in with a candle in it. Highly recommend the clams and the gazpacho for starters, trout, salmon and pork chop for main course and the warm chocolate brownie and the sour cream cheesecake for dessert. Everyone in the company was very satisfied with all of the food!
