Party of 10 for a birthday. There were only 2 other tables of 2 in the restaurant (Restaurant was basically empty). We were on the patio. Horrible service: Forgot drinks & appetizers. Brought out entrees and gave us a difficult time about canceling appetizers which had not arrived yet. Manager said she would get us up to the rooftop and comp us drinks to make up for it. We waited for about 20 minutes and no one came to talk to us, give us a bill, offer us drinks, water or even acknowledge us. Finally, we all got up and we went to talk to the manager once again. Her staff couldn’t find her. When she finally came back she got nasty and said she “told us” she was going to the rooftop to speak with the manager about letting us up. She never told us. There were 3 of us speaking with her originally and none of us ever heard her say that. She insisted and became very rude and said they could not let us up unless we waited in line and they could do nothing except comp the bday boy’s meal. This is not what she originally told us and considering the bday that I planned for a month was ruined because of them, this was not acceptable. Then, they brought out security, then another manager, all agreed and apologized but they were clearly gaslighting us and were not going to do anything. There is sooo much more to the story of this destroyed evening but reliving it is painful and only upsets me more. Do yourself a favor and NEVER patronize this horribly run establishment. Especially, with a group.

Posto carino. Cameriere un po’ frettoloso, forse era alle prime armi. Cibo ottimo e soprattutto ottima qualità-prezzo.

We went for breakfast at The Restaurant at The Standard. Their menu consisted of yummy breakfast options including vegan alternatives, which made me very happy. Their food was tasty and I would recommend it as a spot for breakfast!

The restaurant is very nice, and the food is very good, but on this particular day, we couldnt sit on the patio because they said that since the umbrellas were up they couldn't turn the gas lamps on because the umbrellas can burn, but other than that the service was great and they food was spectacular.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.
