Be prepared to wait - service was really slow. Also, at 12:15 they were already out of one of the selections and it wasn't really very busy. The food was OK but for a downtown lunch place I would expect faster service.

I've been a fan of this restaurant for years. I've tried many different dish here so far and everything tasted so good. Who doesn't love places that have both good food and good atmosphere? Recommended.

Everything was perfect about this place but the chewy steak and cold fries. I wanted to complain but only had an hour for lunch. Other than that this place is really nice, but the steak was horrible.

My friends and I came here to celebrate a bachelorette and we all loved it! The food was amazing. Everything we tried was so tasty. The chicken was juicy, not dry, and very flavorful. The lighting at night time made everything very exquisite looking. The service was also great. It wasn’t crowded either. It was the perfect way to start our night and we couldn’t have been more happy with this place!

The service was really amazing, sweet people. Tasty cocktails. Dim light ambiance.
Good for late cravings. Try the Impossible Vegan Meat.

We had the cauliflower appetizer which was okay, nothing special. So that was a bit disappointing. The salmon was amazing, small potion but what can you expect from an expensive restaurant. This is definitely a special occasion type of place as I’m sure you’d want to eat bigger portions any other day in your life.

Terrible size portions for the price. For a 4 star restaurant, I wad deeply let down. Considering it was Thanksgiving and we drove from. Orange County, huge disappointment. Never again and I will talk bad about it, every chance I get.

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).

My husband created his own omelette and not only was it the most beautiful omelette I've ever seen, but sooooo good too! I'd highly recommend everyone try! :)

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.

I had a fantastic time and the ambiance was relaxing and pleasurable. There was a bar upstairs with ping pong tables that was a nice touch. There was no crowd which was fine but it fears a bit boring. I may come back in the future.

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.
