Steakhouse
The Standard at The Smith House may very well be the best example of local Nashville flavor and service. The Standard Restaurant has been in operation since 2006 serving upscale Southern specialties complete with a full-service bar. Our townhouse was built in the 1840's and we are honored to be the current stewards of this fascinating work of architecture. We are located in the heart of Downtown Nashville, just blocks from the new Music City Convention Center and the famous Lower Broadway entertainment district. We are proud to offer some of the best steaks in town as well as fresh seafood and other items.

Our beautiful courtyard bar area is available with a dinner reservation for drinks before or after dinner.

    Based on the restaurant’s website I was expecting something considerably more tasteful. Instead of “business casual” dress, some diners were slovenly dressed, in shorts and t-shirts. The overall ambience was disappointing—make-believe ante-bellum. The food was good but not exceptional in any way. I wouldn’t go back.

    This place was amazing overall. My girlfriends and I had dinner here for my birthday. Allan was our waiter and he was great. He’s very knowledgeable and appropriately chatty. We had the NY strip, Chilean sea bass, asparagus, the Standard filet, and the half baked cookie for dessert. Everyone was extremely pleased with everything. This was the best meal we had the whole week we were in Nashville.

    The overall experience was excellent. We enjoyed everything about it. I ordered the pork chop and can only hope this review does it justice. It was the most tender, flavorful and well cooked pork chop I have ever had. Most good steakhouses can't cook steak well enough to live up to their prices but this pork chop was extremely well done and definitely worth the price. Would recommend this place to anyone who enjoys good food and service.

    We entered this old residence turned restaurant with being welcomed and escorted through the stately and beautifully appointed rooms to our table. We were met by our servers Autumn and Brandon. Impeccable service was received from them throughout our perfect evening. Our steaks were prepared and served perfectly along with our salad and sides. Each course was better than the next. All in all from the moment we entered The Standard to our departure our night was a 10+. We will absolutely return.

    A unique experience that won’t disappoint. We had a drink at the bar while we waited for our private table experience in what I’ll call the “Markers Mark” room. I shared the tomahawk with a colleague and it was fantastic!
