Love the ambiance
The Standard at the Smith House was fantastic all around - from the warm greeting at the door (and a history of the house) from the valet, to the beauty of the house itself, to the attentive, friendly staff, and of course, wonderful food - my husband and I were visiting Nashville from out of town and really had a great experience. We both had the prime filet, which came out prepared exactly as we liked. The fried green tomatoes were a special treat for us coming from the north, and the half-baked cookie was the perfect way to finish our meal!
This restaurant was amazing. Such history. Service was top notch. Food was outstanding.
The ambience, food, and service were all great. The house has a lot of history which the owners love to share. The food was delicious, the steak was perfectly cooked, and they gave us a complimentary birthday dessert!
The owners were very nice and accommodating. The Makers Mark collection was a great and unexpected extra to see. Very cool place and cannot wait to come back. The food was very nice, great selection and done very well.
Great historic place to visit and dine in. Different than any other dining experience I had in Nashville.
The restaurant is in a beautiful 1800’s mansion. Food and service were excellent and the ambience and attention to detail and explanation of the history of the mansion made for a great dinner.
The entire experience was fantastic. From the valet attendant explaining the history of the house, to Mrs. Smith going more in-depth on the history, we learned a lot about the historical magnitude of the property.
The meal was great. Being a cattleman, I know a good steak, and this one ranks up there with the best I have had. Sides were excellent.
Highly recommend this as we will be making a regular out of The Standard.
Everyone just go here please. It’s chic and old school and food is exceptionally good and the staff are fabulous. Nothing bad about this place and it’s a Nashville gem.
Kevin, the valet, was awesome! Then we went inside ….
Waited 10 minutes to be greeted at the hostess stand. Finally got sat. The bread and water service person came relatively quickly, but the main server didnt come for almost 25 minutes. When she did she didnt apologize for our wait just said “are you ready? Hit me with it.” Umm im getting ready to order a $64 steak, and that’s the best you can do? I thought I was at Waffle House. Then it took almost 45 minutes for our food to come. My husband’s was great, mine was “ok.” Our drinks did not get refilled. She did not check to see how everything was, just asked if we wanted dessert (we didn’t.) Oddly, there appeared to be very few people dining, so it is not as if they were slammed. We will not return, sadly.
The standard has become our favorite dinner spot in all of Nashville! Such a wonderful experience every time. Mrs. Smith is always so welcoming, and everyone who works there is amazing as well. I would give a million stars for The Standard if I could!
There is not one bad thing I could say about this place. From the moment we walked in, we were treated like we were the only ones in the place. Food was fantastic. Service was perfect. Best martini I’ve ever had.
Immediately upon arrival we were greeted outside by valet who engaged in conversation that made us feel very welcome. This was followed by warm welcome and assistance from manager/owner Ms. Smith who immediately seated us even though 30 minutes early. She was there for us thru dinner until the time we left. Can't say enough how gracious and accommodating she was.
The Standard is an outstanding dining experience. Sharon the host Will take good care of you from the minute you enter the house. Food, service and overall experience were top notch. Fabulous experience.
We went for my 50th birthday. The atmosphere was amazing. Service was impeccable. Get ready to drop some cash though. One bottle of wine and two meals was $300.
The food and service were top notch. They have valet parking which is a major plus in Nashville. The atmosphere was amazing, the history of the house very interesting. Will definitely return.
Birthday and anniversary with friends. Owner was very welcoming. Food and drink were excellent, thank you again
Went for my wife’s birthday and the Standard did an amazing job at everything! We were very pleased!
We found a gem of a restaurant with this place. Food was amazing and the service was outstanding!! And, the ambiance offered a unique experience we will never forget. We will definately come back anytime we are in the area and will highly recommend to all our friend. Thank you for an extraordinary dining experience. One of the highlights of our trip.
The standard has excellent service and their food and beverages are absolutely delicious. The venue is so unique and one-of-a-kind. I highly recommend dining there and learning about some of the history at this location.
Ms. Sharon was wonderful! The bar was wonderful! The food was wonderful! The service was wonderful! The staff was wonderful! It was one of the most delightful nights I have ever had in my life! If we ever make it back to Nashville, we WILL be going back!
This was a 5-star experience all around. Best meal of our trip to Nashville!
The building and the architecture were beautiful! I loved the history of this old townhome. The service was good. My husband enjoyed his old fashion cocktail and his fillet, but overall, I felt the food was mediocre. I love trying new restaurants, but this experience was disappointing.
We had an amazing dinner! Everything was prepared so well. The service was outstanding and the history of the vintage home fascinating!! We will definitely be returning.
The food was excellent and we loved the whole experience!
Jimmy was a great waiter funny and knowledgeable about Nashville
Dinner and service was outstanding. Definitely will come back. Gluten-free options which were amazing.
Had a great dinner experience. Food was good, service was excellent and learning about the history of the building was amazing.
Not a cheap night out. But the food , service and place was just wonderful! Highly recommended.
Absolutely an amazing experience.
Absolutely amazing we had a wonderful time! The staff and the food were the best!!!
Wonderful wonderful wonderful from the time you get a brief history from the valet and Mrs. Smith greats you at the door, till the time they say goodbye....food, ambience and everything in between.
This was an excellent place to try! I loved that they spoke about the history of the place and the food was simply amazing. A must try at least once in your life!
What a special place. The owner is lovely and staff from valets to servers are beyond accommodating. The food was so/so not bad but nothing impressive. With the high levels of people service I would have expected way better food quality. I had shrimp & grits and started w Tomato Crab BisqueSoup. Soup was watery ok on flavor not much crab. He had strip steak with side of asparagus & potato hash & wedge salad to start. He prefers steak with more sear on it. Everything thing was was really salty. My shrimp was heavily spiced w blackening spices. Maybe the cook had an off night or something. We didn’t want to complain as people hands down where so lovely and kind. We really think the main cook was off or had an off night.
Such a wonderful treasure in Nashville! We will be back!
What a lovely evening! Wonderful hospitality in a beautiful, historic place! The food was delightful, and our server made things so special with a dessert to celebrate our 10th anniversary!!
Food was absolutely amazing, and the Smith House is so unique for an eating experience. Sean and Adam were great servers, and the staff was great!
Filet was ordinary, although expensive. $11 is a lot for a bowl of green beans.
We enjoyed the history of the restaurant. The steaks were great! Creamed corn was delicious.
