    We waited for 45 min to get appetizer and 20 more to get the food that we order the moment we sat at the table BUT our server Iryna was such a nice girl and th food was amazing so it is was a worth waiting. There was some problems in the kitchen specifically with our order. Manager also came to apologize. At the end, appetizer, two mimosas, 4 coffees and two desserts were on the house! Classy move, very professional. Food was 5+ , best burger in the city! Desserts apple pecan crust crumble with ice cream and vanilla rum donuts to die for!! I'll be definitely coming back.

    Il ristorante si trova nel quartiere di Meatpacking, sotto lo Standard Hotel. Il locale è alla moda e ideale per una cena sia con amici, sia romantica. Abbiamo ordinato come primo un risotto alla zucca molto delizioso e per secondo una New York Steak e un filetto davvero squisito (una delle bistecche più buone assaggiate a New York). Accanto al ristorante vi è lo Standard Plaza, un bar molto cool e ideale per un cocktail pre-serata. Consiglio di salire al club Le Bain allo Standard Hotel per concludere la serata. Ottima serata e ottimi locali.

    The Standard Grill is my favorite restaurant in NYC, not just because it's very close to where I live and work but the food is delicious, the space is beautiful and most importantly the staff is fantastic. The mai·tre d's are some of the most friendly and helpful in the city and the waitstaff could not be more helpful. A meal at the Standard Grill, as often as I go, never ceases to be treat.

    Loved it! Great food, mostly pasta and fish, few option for meat if u don't eat pork. But i had an amazing duck! Well served, beautiful ambience, many graet wines by the glass, just on the new standard hotel by high line in meatpacking. What not to like. Outside with plants is gorgeous and inside main dinning area is amazing. Do not recommend the indoor balcony, nit the same vibe.

    Took ages to get served, longer to get our drinks. The drinks order was wrong with a guest with a peanut allergy being given a drink with nuts. Dinner took forever, majority of food was cold. Given an apologetic dessert. Only to be charged for it on the check. Avoid.

    Meeting a friend from out of town, I chose the Standard Grill because of it's great locations right near the High line, and it's great reputation. It did not disappoint. The waitress sensed we had a lot to catch up on and took care to be both attentive, yet non intrusive. The house wine was very nice as was the food. We both chose the bourbon glazed pork chop for dinner, which was a meal and a half. It was delicious! Desert was a croissant bread pudding, again really good. This is a great go to place both if you live here, and if you are visiting.

    Service was fantastic, with an attentive waiter who noticed when our glasses needed to be topped up and he was observant. He noticed one of the the party was not enjoying her steak dish of tri- tip steak. The manager came over immediately and tried to help my friend order an alternative as she was genuinely keen to see her enjoy her meal. All was resolved and everyone enjoyed their food. The broccoli was a little bitter so I would perhaps leave but we loved the crispy potatoes and the desserts, the rum & raisin ice cream which came a moist carrot cake with pineapple cream cheese. We would go again now we know what to order!

    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.

    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.
