A word from The Standard Grill
A neighborhood staple, The Standard Grill is classic New York meets new American cuisine. The front café, bar and street-side bistro is clean and bright with white oak and tile décor and features fresh oysters, specialty cocktails and charcuterie. The main dining room is cozy, old-world with red leather banquets, barrel vaulted ceilings, and a floor paved in copper pennies. The Standard Grill utilizes the freshest local ingredients, blending traditional steak house with new American grill sensibilities.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Always fun and always delicious. Favorite stop along The Highline."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Poor hamburger. The lack of taste made the experience bad all the way through. Not value for money. The enviroment and design was good, to bad the food was taste less. The other people in the company orderd meet and that was not any good either...I would not recomend this to my friends."

  • "Tremendously vibrant scene - a bit loud but this was for a birthday, so noise added to the festive atmosphere. I will say food was very good, service was attentive but not intrusive. "
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "Brought a friend for birthday. Was a disapointing experience. From beginning to end was poor service, when staff have to read customer before deciding to provide good or adequate service. Waitress forgot candle for birthday? Was it intensional. On customer side was disappointing. Yes, I am a restauranteur myself for well over twenty years and do recognize poor service and a cocky staff. "

  • "Probably my 6th visit...I live just down the street and this is one of our favorite neighborhood places (in a neighborhood that is not exactly full of accessible restaurants). Food was excellent (but the potato side is not anything like the late lamented duck fat spuds). Service was genial, knowledgeable. Wine steward (from Oregon) was great and steered in a good affordable direction. Will be back!"

  • "Great place to celebrate my 79th birthday. I had seen it the week or so before on the barefoot contessa and knew that was where I would have my birthday lunch. It was excellent!!"

  • "This was my second time at The Standard Grill. Why I came back was mostly for testing the hamburger I've heard of which I didn't try the first time. This time, I thought the service was even more poor than the first time. Our waitor(s) (there were serveral people serving us, not in a good way though), they were unattentive, we had to wait a long time to have our orders picked up, had to ask them serve us our ordered drinks (about 20 mins after order) and bread was served about 30 mins after we were seated. Should have been 5 mins after we were seated. A few minutes after bread came in, we got our food! So I would say, unattentive waitor, bad timing, long waits, ok/ good food. For my next time in NY, it will not be a third visit here."

  • "Go there if you are looking for fancy yet casual place. Very attentive staff, great interior. Not as noisy as the "fig & olive" around the corner. "

  • "The Standard is a find! Energetic and a really good vibe. Eclectic mix of people and the staff are very professional. They know what they are doing. Attentive without pushing you along. We had a mixture of seafood from the raw bar followed by Pork Chop and Steak - couldn't fault any of it. I've experienced both dinner and brunch and both were a very enjoyable experience. As Arnie said "I'll be back""

  • "I have been now 4 times while visiting New York from London and it has become one of my favourites. The service has always been great as has the food. "

  • "Booked the restaurant online on recommendation from previous guests and it did deliver. Lovely interior, friendly and quick staff. Had a special occasion to celebrate and one of the managers (?) came and congratulated and we were gifted a complimentary dessert for the whole table! It being busy Friday and all, the sound level was very high which made it somewhat difficult to fully hear every word during conversation, but it was no big deal. All in all a very enjoyable and pleasant dinner with excellent food, drink and service. Nice way to experience a vibrant part och NYC. Highly recommendable!"

  • "Arrived at 1:20 p.m. for a 1:30 p.m. reservation. Understandably, we were asked to wait because we were early. Our reservation time came and went we were seated 50 minutes late. The staff was overwhelmed, the service was poor. We ordered two kale salads, one arrived after our meal and the other never arrived. I good go on but - Who has time for this?"

  • "The food that was offered (and what we ordered) was quite tasty. However, I read the menu online (made a selection) and when I arrived at the restaurant, I was told that the item I wanted is never offered on the weekends. The restaurant is VERY noisy. My luncheon companions and I had to SHOUT at each other to be heard (very headache-inducing, indeed). Service was good during the meal, but it took forever for us to get the check (perhaps if we had started to leave the premises, the check would've been forthcoming more expeditiously????????). I won't be returning to The Standard Grill."

  • "We had a special occasion to celebrate amongst a great group of longtime friends. Actually, several milestones, not to mention, SPRING, finally. We got the booth I had requested and had a wonderful, fun and fantastic meal - the service, the wine guy, the appetizers and main course and finally the birthday candles (for three people!) arrived on the most delicious dessert. It was lovely and memorable. Loved it. Will be back again. Thank you Standard Grill!"

  • "Made this reservation 5 weeks in advance. Kept waiting when we arrived on time and then placed at a table in between the front door and host station. SO COLD we were all wearing coats and hats yet the hosts kept their space heater pointed at their feet. Service was horrendous. I was sorely disappointed and embarrassed as I was the host of this party and responsible for a nice dining experience. Will not return and will recommend that this establishment not be visited by anyone in my circle."

  • "We had a nice dinner here, service was also very good. The wine list is quit long, so you should be able to find you pick. The price is what on the high end for the food served, we had the new york strip with béarnaise sauce. Steak was very nice, but the bearnaise sauce wasn't even worth the name. Desert was also nice and fresh. Overall good experience but price a bit to high"

Will be back in NYC in two wks. for our 30 yr. anniversray and will w/o a doubt be visiting the Standard Grill again, topped off by a walk on the adjacent High Line."

  • "Went for a client dinner with my Father. Clients and Father are in the food business. They were very impressed with everything we ordered which is a huge win for me since they always rely on my restaurant recommendations. Service was attentive. The only downside is that the acoustics are a bit loud for a relaxing business dinner. That said, it didn't ruin our experience."

  • "One of my favorite brunch spots in NYC and definitely the best spot in Meatpacking. Can't go wrong with the waffles, especially with maple ice cream! Make sure you book a reservation because we saw so many walk ins, walk out hungry."

  • "With a reservation for 12 noon for brunch for a party of three, we had to wait about 10/15 mns to be seated. Restaurant was too noisy, waiters too busy. Food and menu were comparable to a regular breakfast. Quality was good, quantity was below expectations (pictures of pancakes, for example, showed a number greater than what was served)."

  • "Exceptional service. Spot on. Attentive, available but never over you. We had a long business meeting, more talking than food and drink. The server Zach was excellent at visiting our table at the appropriate times and all the servers with their incredible posture (we joked how they must be trained to stand up straight!) would rotate around the room and if we needed something they all noticed. We came during lunch to dinner change and Zach was leaving for his shift - he didn't want to disturb us with this so he brought along a replacement. I wanted to say the signature Standard 69 drink is excellent to introduce to out of town guests. My client was from Dubai and was thrilled by the fresh raspberries in the drink."

  • "I had heard such great things, but was not impressed at all with any facet of our brunch at The Standard Grill. We were seated quickly, which was a plus, but it took our waiter forever to come over to the table. Our food came out about 10 minutes after we ordered. The eggs Benedict was so-so and the yolks were over cooked. We ordered coffee and a pot of tea, which came out after our food. It wasn't the leisurely Sunday brunch we pictured. It definitely seemed like a turn and burn kind of place. Don't waste your time."

  • "Went for brunch and it was a great spot. The Bloody Mary was spicy and on point (little pricey though) and my food was great. I had the beefsteak tomato gratin and my boyfriend had the French toast. Both were super tasty. Great place to grab a bite, grab a beer at the beer garden, and then walk the high line!"

  • "This place is one of my favorites. The main room in the Grill is gorgeous. I ordered the lamb with a side of creamed spinach we. The spinach I didn't expect hark have so much flavor!! The lamb actually fell off the bone. It was so delicious and tender. The others in my group ordered the Branzino and the Scallop linguini. Everything was amazing. Anyone who comes to NY, I let them experience The Standard Highline."

  • "We were excited for my college daughter's first dinner in NYC. The Standard delivered! The service was great, the food deliciously tasting and well presented. We enjoyed the ambiance of the night. Our experience was somewhat dampened when the bar bouncer yelled at my daughter as we apparently exited the dining area but into the bar area by mistake. He could have handled the situation better in my opinion."

  • "I have been for brunch this time and was amazing - food and ambiance and my out of town guest loved it! I went for dinner and not so much so will be returning but not for dinner seems like better brunch/lunch spot."
