The Restaurant at The Standard, Downtown LA
Book your next event with us
We came down for brunch before the women’s march and we’re so happy with the level of service we received. I wish o could remember our servers name but I had champagne 😜 He was super helpful with vegan options and just was extremely pleasant. I will definitely Italy be back. Food was great as well.
We took the family as a downtown LA experience. The salmon and steak were ok, ravioli was aweful. Service was poor.
Anniversary not mentioned :(
terrible service, pay 30+ bucks for a plastic "wagyu" steak and my mom had a burrata which consisted of a tiny portion of actual burrata.
New Years Eve Ghosts: Staff ghosted after aps and mains. Desserts, which were simultaneously and bizarrely melted and cold, clearly had been sitting around, took nearly half an hour to arrive and only after someone in our party of five had asked the maître d' when and where? The new waitperson, who wasn't our previous three(!) servers said they were "suddenly slammed" which was preposterous since the entire outdoor space of twenty or so tables was unoccupied barring our table and one other, and the inside tables were barely half-occupied; this was 5pm on New Years Eve. Whenever any staff member of any restaurant gives the excuse of "we're suddenly slammed" (or similar ilk) it usually means, new business is more important and your table is no longer a priority. So sure you'll get a table, but don't expect a good experience; I wanted to ignore the many reviews that spoke of poor service, lackluster food and dusty decor/setting, but lo and behold, a broken foosball table, torn/stained camouflage netting and putrid second hand smoke from the adjacent outdoor lounge doesn't spell cool, it spells a bad military-themed college frat party at a WeWork impersonating hipsters crica 2000-late. We asked if we could speak to the manager, to which the new waitperson sharply said, "you're speaking to her!.." in a tone and language that suggested it was our fault her staff and the restaurant were inept. As customers anywhere I don't feel we're entitled to always being right, but when it is clearly the mistake of i.e. the restaurant, at least take responsibility and deescalate the issue. We have visited and/or stayed at Standard locations in Miami, Highline/NYC, East Village/NYC, London and Hollywood, and the Downtown LA version has got to be the absolute worst restaurant-wise of the bunch. Fire the restaurant manager, the staff, start fresh and import them from any of their other locations; the brand deserves better...and my god get rid of the foosball table.
Server wasn't very attentive and forgot many things we requested. Food wasn't the best either.
The ambiance at The Standard is great especially for out of town visitors but the food at their restaurant was mediocre.
It was my first time going to The Restaurant, the drinks were great, the flat iron steak was delicious and the coconut cake dessert was amazing!
I was there Friday after work. Nobody else was in the restaurant, it was pretty empty. I wanted the cocktail “coffee & cigs” or something like that, after a while they told me they’re out of Bailey, so I need to order something else. I’m not very happy about this, can’t imagine a bar would be out of bailey.
The foods were okay. Not bad but nothing special. I wouldn’t recommend the foods. But since it was pretty empty, the ambience was nice and quiet.
Good food, relaxing atmosphere. I love the yellow decor. Makes you feel refreshed and overall the staff was great.
another nice business breakfast meeting at The Standard, on a Monday morning.
Admittedly it was 4:30 in the morning, but we had a good time at breakfast!! A very unique, hip and delicious spot open 24/7 The hotel will even park your car for while you dine, a win-win for downtown. Everybody in our party of eight enjoyed different foods and all but one plate went away empty. In addition, the young lady who served us was very perky, helpful and courteous given the time of day. Many THANKS!! for the exceptional experience!
Nice outdoor area. Cool spot in downtown.
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.
Average food, average service, average space.
Parking is a nightmare and valet employees in the garage are rude.
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.
I have become such a synic when it comes to DTLA hotels and restaurants. I always assume pretentious attitudes. Not here, great service , great food my new breakfast spot . We live two blocks away so it’s perfect. Great for brunch also
It was really quiet and peaceful; perfect for an early breakfast place. It was a calm, relaxing meal.
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.
Our server, Chantel, was wonderful. Everything about this restaurant was great & I would definitely go back.
It was nice place but not too special. Could’ve been better in terms of food variety.
It was everyone in the party’s first time and no one was disappointed… The ambience was great and The employees were even better! They were so kind and helpful! The food was excellent as well… I would definitely go back!
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.
I came here back when it was dineLA during the winter and what a deal that was. Me and my 3 friends all had their $15 dineLA lunch menu and every single food item we got was delicious! I love the atmosphere and the decor of the whole place too. Would definitely come back!
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.
The restaurant is very nice and trendy. The staff is very kind and professional. It has also an open-air side.
Delicious food, service didn’t know a lot about wine pairing. Plates for main came while my wife and I were still eating our starters. But food was super delicious
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.
this is one of my 'go to' spots for breakfast meetings. the wait staff knows you and is impeccable! Food is also good and fresh!
The restaurant is nothing extraordinary, normal food, regular prices, regular costumer service. But the bar in the rooftop wow amazing!!!
Really nice eatery located close by and open late for an impromptu post Theatre hangout suitable for good food and conversation.
