Thanksgiving Dinner Special Menus & Offers

Guess what? We have an amazing 3 course spread for Thanksgiving that includes vegetarian options for $39. If that's not your jam, we will also be offering our regular menu. Either way, it's a win because we are fun to spend the holiday with. We get pretty busy so it's best to make a reservation.

Old fashioned (60's/70's) diner vibe is fun. Great menu with broad selection is perfect for large group, but food arrived cold or was forgotten. Polite, accommodating servers, but not very attentive overall, and it wasn't crowded. Get their potatoes or you'll miss out.

Staff is friendly and very accommodating. When I asked for their opinion because I couldn't decide, their knowledge of the dish was given and I was able to make my decision. Burrata with peaches were delectible. I had a very tasty lamb chop and would recommend it. It was for the dine la lunch menu and very much worth it. Went back again and had the pasta and this, too, was delicious! I've been working across the street for a few years and didn't know about this great restaurant till Dine LA!

Liked the decor and location. Meal started well with first course. Main course was not cooked as ordered in 2 out of 3 plates. Service was slow 2nd half of meal. I would try it again to see if this was an off experience because food was good.

My favorite color is yellow so walking in to find that was the restaurant theme color was a great surprise. Really good option for dinner after work. It may take a minute to get food ordered but it was worth the wait; be sure to leave enough time inbetween anything you plan to do after. Those who work there are amazing and friendly; They made my guests and I feel special for my birthday dinner, gave equal amount of customer service/attention to others, and my birthday dessert (Bourbon Creme Brûlée was amazing).

All our food was cold, do not go before 11am if you want your food timely and fresh. Before 11 you are competing with the hotels room service for your food. Also if you are going for a special menu listed on their site, call ahead they might have provisions that they don't warn you about on their site. I was going for a special mother's day brunch menu, made a reservation for 10:30, when we got their was told it didn't start until 11am. They wouldn't even let us look at the mother's day menu. Shame their restaurant wasn't good, I actually like their rooftop bar.

This was my first visit to the Standard and I really enjoyed the outdoor seating. The vibrant yellow really adds a fun flair to the atmosphere and our brunch was delicious. I went for brunch with a friend on Easter Sunday and was worried it would be too busy - but luckily I was able to get a reservation and it wasn't TOO crowded. Also I liked that it wasn't too loud.

My girlfriend and I went there for Valentine’s Day and we are vegetarians so we try to replace one dish on the valentine menu which we originally plan to have instead we were redirected to get the shortcut to mushroom plate it had no flavor mushrooms weren’t cook and my girlfriend wasn’t feeling well after ..on top of that we had to wait for our check for a while ..I was planning to complain to management but after waiting so long and eating disappointing food that cost 21 dollars for a plate full of no flavor I just wanted to leave ..I would want the standard to live up to its standards and improve there food quality and service I wish I would get a refund or apology. Very disappointing for a special night that was planned. I will not return.

Not really digging the decor choice in the Restaurant at the standard but food & service was on point. French toast, eggs benny was fantastic and so were the amazing potatoes. Sat outside near the sunken lounge to enjoy our beautiful weather & another round of mimosas but this area is best visited at night since it looks well used in the daylight.

I wouldn't say that I had a bad experience, I think I just expected something more than a basic restaurant experience. Everything was fine overall, but nothing to get excited about. The food was decent, although a bit overpriced, but at dinner time on a Saturday night, I was expecting more ambiance. The rooftop bar had a very festive vibe, but the restaurant had no energy, of any kind, at all.

Just when one thinks that breakfast menu items cannot be improved upon, this restaurant offers a pleasant surprise in bringing back traditional items plus innovative twists on other staples. The omelette and eggs benedict are but 3 examples where a "proprietary twist" added more flavor and nice surprise. The friendly diner 2 table over remarked on the same delightful surprise in his breakfast burrito.
This restaurant is located next to the Los Angeles Central Library off the lobby of a trendy hotel with inside dining and a semi-secluded patio area fit for cozy private conversation or solo dining with a good book or morning paper. The overall ambience is one of quiet privacy (despite 2 rather loud and crude tourists who thankfully stayed a very short time wolfing down their breakfast).
The service was attentive and low key. The food arrived fresh, hot and quickly. The pace was leisurely. My wife and I went for a mid to late Sunday morning repast before heading off to the nearby Ahmanson for a 1 pm matinee and the relaxing pace of the venue was a perfect fit for an unrushed pre-theater meal.
We will be back.

I have lived and worked in DTLA for 12 years. I've been to the Standard's spectacular rooftop a few times, but I did not know about its restaurant. It's a very cool spot with great food.
