The Standard Restaurant & Lounge
Standard Family reviewWe pre-booked our on line reservation for Mothers Day evening for 7 +1 (2year old) needed a high chair. Service was great, table was ready when requested. Burgers weren't done as requested. Medium well came out very red in the middle. Other that that, very nice night. Will be back. We've been there dozens of times before, we knew what to expect. Good food, good service !!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI love The Standard and II love The Standard and I eat there often. The Mother's Day brunch however, did not meet my expectations. We had 1:00 reservations and by then alot of the food had been picked over. Not the mention the price. It was just a tad bit over priced for what we got. Next year I'll make our reservations after 3:00 and just eat off the regular menu.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSo happy.....I am the mother of 2 small children and do not get out much. We invited another couple to join us at dinner and we were aprehensive about going to Crossgates Mall for a nice dinner, but upon recommendation we went anyway. We were thrilled. The bar and decor is awesome. The decor throughout the restaurant so old fashion "cool". And the food and pricing is great! I cannot wait to go back and try other things. I would recommend this "diamond in the rough" to anyone.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThey are just so consistentThey are just so consistent with the food & the service. Our server, Dana, was terrific. She remembered what we order the last time we were there. It was a very pleasurable experience and would not hesitate to bring people there.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent MealWe enjoyed another excellent meal at the Standard.

Delicious food.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe StandardThe Standard has excellent staff and a great atmosphere. The only things I did not like were the wait time for a table when I made reservations and the price of the food. It is quite expensive.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the Decor here...farLove the Decor here...far batter than most "mall restaurants". Food here is always good and consistent. The staff is very accomodating and does everything with a smile. Great location for a group to gather and they always seem to make room for whoever arrives. This place is unique and therefore always a treat.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great dinner with oldHad a great dinner with old friends. The food and atmosphere were wonderful.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMStandard should be the standardThe service is typically great, this time was no exception. I am a regular here and have only been disappointed once here. The bar is always rockin, and staff usually quite friendly. This time I did see them standing around and yacking by the bar a lot- quite loud.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always the Standard's foodAs always the Standard's food and service were excellent. The pace of the meal is considerate of the diners. It moves along with timely service, but not rushed allowing time to talk and enjoy the surroundings. The Standard is an excellent location for business meetings. While sometimes noisy, it provides an atmosphere which is busy, but conducive to productive discussion. Everyone leaves knowing they were well treated.
The only "problem" - probably was of my own doing, was my inability to reserve a specific table - a banquette in the far left corner (facing back from the fornt desk)adjacent to the bar area off the froentry. That booth is excellent for private discussions and dinner meetings. I would like to know how to make the request.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent and veryFood was excellent and very large portions.

ThereI was here for lunch. There were many choices of salads, burgers and sandwiches as well as hot meals. The salads are offered in 2 sizes and the "smaller" lunch portion was more than I could eat! My salad was loaded with grilled chicken. Ingredients were fresh and the service was very good. I would recommend this.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
