    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.

    Three of us Golden Girls were having a long-overdue reunion at lunch. Ease of making a reservation was wonderful. The Standard even honored our request for a quiet table. 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! Keep up the good work!

    My husband and I went here for dinner. They have a unique and wonderful menu. We started with some of the cheeses, and had the Porterhouse for two as our main course. Both were excellent. Our server was very personable and on top of his game! I highly recommend the Standard Grill for a simple dinner or special occasion.

    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!

    Kelsey was our server at the outdoor lounge and was excellent. Our reservation was for 2pm and I spoke to the hostess inside at the grill. I let her know we were outside and would be in shortly. She said she would move our reservation to 2.10pm or 2.30pm since we had ordered drinks and appetizers. When we went inside at 2.30pm the new server told us that the dining room was being flipped for dinner. We found this strange as not 30 minutes before it was no problem. It was a special occasion so we chose to stay in main dining area. I ordered a well done NY Strip and had to send back as it was rare on the inside. A manager came over and apologized and they removed from the bill.

    We ate some really good meat at the grill, however the service took away a great deal of the experience. As soon as we had finished our starter the plates where changed to our main course. We where not given any time between the courses which meant that by the time we where ready for taking on the stakes it had begun to cool down. After the meal we ordered coffee and avec/drinks, these where delivered two at the time and by the time the last of us got our drinks the first ones already had finished (Around 10-15minute from first to last person). Note that we where only a company of six people. To sum it up: - Great food - Poor service - Bad timing (food and drinks)

    This is one of those somewhat pretentious places that attracts a pretty crowd and relies on its location to do the work. Service was just ok- the waitress barely made time on a busy sat night to ask us if everything was ok. The drinks are overpriced but satisfactory; the food was good, but very much a “if you don’t see it in the description, its not on the plate” kind of place. Better than French teeny portions, but nothing “extra” here unless you pay for it. Trendy place under the high line; nice outdoor/sidewalk seating but looking directly at a building, nothing special for a “view”. Overall I would not seek this place out again.

    It was my 1st time eating at The Standard. I made the reservation specifically because I heard the standard got their steak from Creekstone Farms. Our waiter let me know which steak was from Creekstone farm. We also ordered oysters, 3 cheeses and dessert. Our waiter was amazing and attentive without being annoying. I was able to catch up with 2 friends that I havent seen in awhile and had a delicious meal at the same time. For all the food that we ordered I was expecting our bill to be much higher than it was, but it was about $225 for 3 people. Overall a great experience and the restaurant had a nice ambiance.

    From start to finish, our experience was outstanding. We met for drinks at the rooftop bar, and then had dinner at the Standard Grill. We were given our choice of tables, and we selected a bistro table in the bar area. Wine, appetizers, main course, dessert, after dinner drinks… we sampled them all… The only ingredient that rivaled the food was our wonderful waitress, Enza. She was professional, warm and knew her stuff… All her recommendations were excellent… and she was a delight to engage with!!!! After dinner concluded, we walked thru the Beer Garden and were again blown away by the energy and ambiance. This is definitely an experience we will remember for a long time… and plan to revisit soon!!!!

    The hosts were great, the waiter seemed overwhelmed. But there is not a quiet night at this MPD hotspot. It still holds its own with a strong menu and great drinks. The bartenders were fantastic as we had a drink at the crowded bar first. There's a lot of young 'see and be seen' types at SG. But if you get past that and stay in the main dining room for dinner, it's a great experience. We had a dozen oysters and beef tartar to start. The three entrees were all great: Halibut, Salmon and the special Black Bass. Not a quiet night out, but a fun one.
