    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

    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!

    I had been to the standard grill and have been to all the other places they have at the standard but this experience was by far the worst I've had. It took them 45 mins to get us good, they couldn't remember the order. Even for water we has to ask 4 times before we got water! They comped our food which didn't taste amazing either - full of oil and grease. They ending up putting drinks we didn't order on our bill but at that point we just wanted to get out so we paid and didn't make a fuss!

    The restaurant is located underneath the High Line in a neighborhood alive with lots of activity on the streets and in nearby bars. The food is excellent, the service so-so, and the attitude of the staff at the front desk was not welcoming at all. The noise level inside was very high; I found it difficult to have a conversation at our table of four. The restaurant was crowded so is probably enjoying a lot of success, but I would recommend that the staff work on their attitude.

    I live a few blocks away, but have stayed away from the large crowds there. When I had the occasion to dine during the calmer mid-week evening, I went. It filled up nicely, and still a bit noisy, but not unbearably so . We all ordered different things to taste. Every dish was delicious. Having eaten as some of the best places in the city, I found the pricing was a bit high for what it was. The mark-up includes being in the trendy Meatpacking District. Still, it was a wonderful culinary experience. I just cant image the weekend noise! I also want to point out how courteous and professional the staff was. Our waiter was knowledgeable with our questions and food came without long waits in between courses. Thumbs up for sure.

    We were seated at a banquette indoors and could not hear each other across the table. Asked to move to somewhere we could hear each other as the noise level was deafening. Our request was granted gracefully by the host that greeted us and the waiters from both tables, but not so by another host who set the table for us in the bar. We ended up moving to the bar area to a smaller (quieter) table. Wished we had waited for a table outdoors as it was a beautiful evening and it would have been much quieter.

    This restaurant was highly recommended for brunch. The service was slow and the food was inconsistent. Some of the items were hot when served, some were cold and the Eggs Benedict had burnt toast, but by the time we were served, we didn't dare send back as we were starving. Manager offered some make right items, but we were just ready to leave.

The hostess was most pleasant and friendly, as if we were special guests. Start-up service was great but then we had to wait quite awhile before our order was placed. after that, our waitress couldn't have been lovelier. all in all a joyful lunch teunion!

    I heard good things about this place from a friend, so I made reservations for my 1 yr anniversary. I mentioned the anny. in the notes section of the online reservations, and the host congratulated us. Then the waiter congratulated us and poured us free champagne. My partner loves octopus salad, so she ordered the appetizer version. She is a really petite person, so appetizers are usually a good size. This one was a bit small, but when added to the greens I got on the side of my steak, it was perfect. My NY Strip was excellent. Adding in the sweet potato fries, we had a winner. We had plenty of bread. The sommelier was very helpful, guiding us to a Spanish white. Our wine and water glasses were never empty.

    Brought an Italian rep here on a business dinner bc of my last experience. Party of 7 and we were sat in a booth with a chair sticking out on the side of the table! Is this a Long Island diner?!?! How embarrassing...or so I thought until it took 30 minutes to get our 2 bottles of wine we ordered. Or was it the two people who ordered the lamb chops and they both came out RAW. So I am not so negative I can say the the burger was good...but to be honest I cook a great burger in my kitchen. This place has gone downhill since its opening. This was my third visit and it will be my last.

    We dined here early (5:30) with another couple as we had walked the High Line. We had a relatively quiet table in the corner. Our server, Nathan, couldn't be nicer or more accommodating. The drinks were generous. The olives and cheese served before the meal were delicious. The meal didn't disappoint, everything was fresh and prepared to perfection. It's a bit pricey but definitely worth it to be part of the Meatpacking District scene!
