The food is always exceptional. The service at the bar and at our outdoor patio seating was fabulous as well.
Our server, Evan does a fabulous job and is very personable and charismatic!

We sat at the outside patio and it was lovely. Our server was excellent and very friendly. We thought the wine list was interesting and everyone enjoyed their meal. Portions were very large. I think I had enough mashed potatoes on my plate for the entire table.

The food is delicious but very rich so don’t over order like we did. The onion soup and the bisque were divine. The entire staff was wonderful. We sat on the beautiful patio but had trouble hearing each other especially after they turned on the music.

The Standard is such a beautiful, relaxing, romantic and transforming experience. The food is wonderful, the patio is just so beautiful to enjoy, the surroundings are breathtaking, you will love every moment. At least I do whenever I have the opportunity to go.

If you know little about food and cuisines you will marvel at what Chef has presented you. But if you have traveled and sampled the dishes prepared by top chefs in Europe and Mediterranean then you will be Ecstatic by the chef and owner at The Standard.
Food is beautifully presented on Staffordahire China ,quite rare these days. Lamb , salmon stuffed with crab and shrimp Superb. , oysters were so fresh , still briny and cold , perfect size. The Fennel salad is best salad I’ve ever eaten.
Chef’s Skill and craftsmanship is top notch . Our glasses never ran dry , our waiter was attentive and helpful, absolutely dazzling interiors, especially garden room. The cost of meal may seem expensive in Ohio, but each meal is a complex presentation of culinary delight . Also very large portions. Worth every penny.

The Standard is an excellent restaurant and I've been there 6 times. This time the service was a bit slow. Ten minutes for a glass of wine and we were sitting at the bar. The server was very nice. I ordered the Morrocan fish which was delicious however the server who filleted the fish for me left several bones in the fish. This wasn't a problem for me as I know the type of fish prepared had bones. It might be a problem for a guest not knowing the fish had many bones. I don't want this wonderful restaurant to have any potential problems. It's a real treasure in the East 185th Street area. I will definitely go back and recommend to others.

We thought what we got to be quite good. The only matter I think to mention was the tuna tar tar that my partner got which she asked me to taste. It was good but what took away from the overall assembly of the dish was too much soy sauce. We agreed that it would go better (at least for our palettes if it has about one-fourth the amount.

Our food was excellent. We both had seafood entrees that were the days special. Ask there price as they were expensive. When we arrived they did not have a place to sear us. Someone forgot to list us. We ended up being put at the outside bar. The place was pa Jed outside and very noisy.

Beautiful patio. Mostly delicious food. Short ribs very fatty. Nothing to eat. Quite expensive. 7:00 reservation and got our salads at 8:15. Very very slow service. Maybe due to After Covid employment problems. Might be willing to give it a second chance when times are better.

Me and my boyfriend were celebrating our 2nd anniversary and the food was amazing and so was the atmosphere. Our only issue was the waitress gave me lots of attention and asked if I needed anything but didn’t pay much attention to my boyfriend after taking his food and drink order.

My goodness where do I begin. Before I went u read the reviews and was a little apprehensive about what to expect. Upon arrival I was seated immediately even though I was tardy. Lizz our server came almost immediately to get my drunk order as my other guests had not arrived yet. When they arrived she quickly got their drink order as well. Each of us got something different and each of us were equally in AWE of the flavor of ench item. From the appetizers to the entrees EVERYTHING was seasoned well and cooked to perfection.

Our service was wonderful and the food was good. However, it was much better pre-pandemic. I'm hopeful it will improve as they regain a more permanent kitchen staff.

The menu on the Open Table site does not show their new
higher prices. The food and space are great, but the dishes
are so humongous that one person can not possibly finish
them and they refuse to split entrees. Also, a lack of valet parking in a very iffy neighborhood does not match the menu that approaches $55. For entrees.
We wish them success. Need to to get a little back to the
original Standard.
Also, they got rid of all of the draft beers. Coots lite anyone.
