    We loved this place! The Ginger snap cocktail was delicios. We had the New york strip which was the best steak I've ever had. Only thing to complain about was that out waitress seemed to be working on comission and tried to sell us the whole menu... That felt a bit uncomfortable unfortunately.

    On our first night in NY we'd choosen dinner at the Standard Grill on the recommendation of friends who also loved it. I'm so glad we did. The restaurant is just the right level of noisy and lively, but you can still hear each other speak! the wait staff were attentive and the food arrived quickly. We shared some starters and both had burger for our main course, it was cooked perfectly. We drank delcious cocktails and just lapped up the atmosphere. Aftewards we headed up to the club on the roof top which was good fun. Really recommend the Standard Grill!

    Awesome service and food💨. The waitress was very personable and the staff extremely attentive. Also we got there around 6pm because we were attending an 8pm event at MSG and they accommodated us to the seat of our choosing. I like to pick where I sit for people watching and seeing the cooking going on.

    Can't find anything to complain about except the noise level. Service, food, and cocktails were excellent but wouldn't recommend for more than a party of 2 because you won't be able to hear anything anyone else is saying (we were there for dinner at 8:30pm on a Tuesday with a party of 4).

    Great place near Chelsea Market. Busy place packed with hipsters. Came to take my wife and friends after the marathon. Initially they put the 6 of us at a table that is a 4 top anywhere else. We complained and got a better table in 10 min. Food was great. Seafood platter fabulous. Service was slow and we couldn't keep our water glasses full, but it was a delightful time and a great value for the group.

    My wife and I enjoyed the spicy Bloody Mary's in the bar as we arrived early for our reservation. The hostess was gracious enough to offer to try to seat us early if possible, which she ultimately did. The food was above average and service excellent. A great spot near the Highline as well.

    at our table our service was notably lacking. We were in NYC for 2 days and had Sunday Brunch here -- hoping it would be a lively spot with really good food. The wait staff just did not seem to care or have any continuity of wait staff. However, the host and hostess more than made up for this by being super helpful and friendly. Just wish we did not feel like we were a distraction to the wait staff. The problem seemed to be limited to one person in particular... still left us with a very expensive brunch that was delivered like it was a box of car parts. food, location and ambiance are all excellent. Brunch was about $65 for two with no alcohol.

    Friend and I had a great lunch earlier this week. The food was very good but it always is. We split the bill but we both mistakenly tipped on the whole amount of the check, essentially doubling the tip. We did not realize it until the next day but we were impressed that the Restaurant adjusted the tip appropriately without us even calling. Good form Standard.

    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.

    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.
