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
  • "The dinner was good at the Standard grills. I had two salads, both were tasty. The drink was the best part though. I had a ginger concoction that blew my mind. Forgot the name but I think it is their most popular drink. Try it."

  • "We were seated outside under the pergola. The lunchtime atmosphere was just right--quiet even tho tables were full. No trouble hearing each others words. The adjacent street is not loud and busy. Very good experience. Appreciated non-alcoholic offerings."

  • "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."

  • "Excellent experience for our party of four. Everyone enjoyed entrees, service was exceptional, and it was a lovely evening to sit outdoors in a private corner booth. A bit pricey for a regular meal, but perfect for special occasion."

  • "Oyster shooter, artichoke soup, steak tartare - all superb, and I even had a gin and grapefruit based house cocktail that was excellent, something I rarely do because they're usually too sweet."

  • "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."

  • "Went with a friend a few weeks back and really enjoyed brunch. So close to the High line. Had to bring my mom. Food is excellent....really enjoyed it. If you go for brunch and you have a sweet tooth, I highly recommend the brioche cinnamon sugar donuts- warm and filled with vanilla rum custard!"

  • "Expected food and service to be better for price charged. Octopus appetizer dry, drinks way overpriced, shrimp cocktail awful(better shrimp from store bought pack), steak good, only 4 scallops with meal and Berkshire pork chop dry. Not type to complain, doubt I'd go back for dinner. Ate there once for lunch and it was very good."

  • "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."

  • "I saw the Ina Garten Food Network Episode where she walked the HiLine and had the Million Dollar Chicken at The Standard Grill. We did the same thing. Walked the HiLine for the first time…very unique and enjoyable experience. They changed the name of the dish from Million Dollar Chicken and now simply call it Roasted Chicken for 2. Usually when you are expecting something to be the best, it falls short of your expectations. But the Chicken lived up to all of its reviews. OUTSTANDING! A must on your list of NY dining. The marinated beets appetizer was also a nice refreshing start to the meal. Great service too. We ate at an outside table where we could enjoy the NY Street scene and the #1 city pastime: People Watching."

  • "We chose The Standard Grill because it is a great location with great outdoor seating. It was a perfect summer evening and the Meatpacking District was packed with well dressed people. Drinks were great and the food was actually better than I expected. Not a gourmet place, but excellent service in a place with a very cool vibe and great people watching."

  • "Although we felt forgotten once the meal was over, this was a fun restaurant with good food. Lots of attention from our waitress and staff until we were finished then we sat...and sat...and sat waiting for the check and someone to come take my card to pay. I don't like ending a meal feeling like I no longer matter and the % of tip went down the longer I waited. However, the food was great and the atmosphere is fun. I would still recommend this restaurant."

  • "Deafening inside. Drinks tasted amateurishly assembled. When seated, service from the waitress was good, but the order took nearly 40 minutes to fill. The manager comped our drinks, but by then we were kind of exhausted by the noise in the dining room which spilled out from the bar. Would not go back. The food was hearty and good, but it was hard to enjoy it when it came so late."
