The Standard Restaurant & Lounge
“Our menu revolves around ‘classics’ or ‘standards’ restaurant goers have come to know and love, yet with our own unique twist; upscale comfort food. We have popular & unique appetizers ranging from Macaroni & Cheese to our signature entrees such as Horseradish Crusted Filet Mignon and “Forever” Braised Short Ribs. In addition, we offer a variety of fresh chopped salads and gourmet sandwiches.
When first entering the restaurant my wife and I needed to use the bathrooms. We both agreed the bathrooms were filthy. The table we sat at was not that clean. The floor needed to be cleaned. We almost got up and left but we stayed only because of the late hour and we were hungry. Overall the food wasn’t bad with the exception of my appetizer. I ordered the mussels. They were some of the worst quality mussels I ever had. They were extra small and over cooked to the point where they wouldn’t detach from the shell. The restaurant was loud with kids playing games and watching cartoons on their portable devices. Overall bad experience.
Our second visit to The Standard and will return again. Food was again excellent, great menu. Service also was fantastic. Great ambiance.
I’ve been to your establishment many times & each visit has been great, i don’t travel to the mall very often and when i so i make it a plan to enjoy a meal and a couple of cocktails..thank you!
Good experience! We enjoyed the atmosphere and the food.
So I've been there once on a date and it was a wonderful we were celebrating my boyfriend graduating from college. I decided to go back by myself I ordered the clams they were wonderful and I ordered the ribeye steak. I had steak there before it was out-of-this-world. When I ordered the steak this time it was not that good. It was not them, I believe it was the way that I ordered it. I told them that and they completely took it off my bill and that was so awesome of them so I left the waitress a $10 tip my bill was only $22. That is the only reason why I I am giving it a four-star review.
Large portions, flavorful food, fantastic cocktails, all with good service and a comfortable dining room. Pleasantly surprised by how reasonable the final check was.
As always, the best!
Everything was excellent except the cocktails were not well made. my Manhattan had no vermouth.
The music made it loud and the food was very salty the waitress could have been more attentive as there were very few other patrons.
Victoria is excellent worker
Our party didn't care for the traveling card player/magician in the room. He performed at a table next to us for at least 20 minutes, if not more. The waiter brought us the wrong wine and never changed the bill so I don't know if I ended up paying more for the proper glass or not. Our server was a bit slow getting back to us, but he may have been stretched thin between the bar seating and the regular dining room. The food was very good. The 5 of us in the party will definitely return and do recommend The Standard to others.
The service was top notch. Our server was very attentive and courteous. We had a lovely anniversary dinner.
Wonderful place for our anniversary celebration. Everything was just perfect.
The restaurant was cute, the food was over priced for the quality, and the service was horrible. We sat outside because it was beautiful outside as suggested by the hostess after that we seem to have been forgotten about. I finally was able to get the check then the waitress never came back to run my credit card. We had to go inside to ask the hostess to pay our check which is awkward and annoying.
The Standard is always the go to place to go either with family & friends to be assured of a great time.
My bf and I enjoyed a great meal, and our waiter was attentive, fun and knowledgeable. Unfortunately I have forgotten his name because of the events at the end of our meal. My bf fainted and fell when he got up from the table, and the staff assisted immediately to help him and to see if further medical help might be needed. Fortunately he was ok- a little wobbly & woozy, but we made it home ok. In the aftermath I have forgotten our waiter’s name, but he was great and treated us kindly. We appreciated the attention all around us! Thank you and all is well.
I loved our waitress, she was very attentive. Also your feature of holding your left overs till after the show. Thankyou
Amazing time, food and drinks were spot on. Going to be a great place for food whenever i am in the albany area.
Once again, excellent food , especially the sea bass pasta with Marsala sauce and NY strip steak , loved their blue margarita as well . Great service, this is one of our fav restos...
Good place for a quick bite with good food, great for lunch.
This restaurant has a very comfortable ambiance to it. We had appetizers and sandwiches. The two burgers we ordered were meant to be med rare...the both came well done. When mentioned to the server she said she was sorry. The crab cake sandwich was a very nice portion but will note it was on the spicy side. The prime tib dip was very tasty...but very slim on the meat...I would have thought for an 18 dollar sandwich it would have been stacked high. After eating we were offered 1 dessert to share for the inconvenience of our burgers being overdone. Sure as I type this it was a small tart with 6 spoons...this cant be made up! LOL. Service was ok...but in three separate occasions we needed to ask to have our drinks refilled. Best part of the experience was the mashed potato egg rolls. Very disappointing.
I can't say enough positive. Food is great. Service is great. Love the ambiance. One of my favorites.
Great cocktails and service at the bar. Good food but lobster tail had too much seasoning.
Was our second time at the Standard. Food was as expected and pleased with what we ordered. Service was terribly slow. Took forever to get drinks from the bar. Not overly crowded. Food and appetizers came before our drinks came. Nothing worse than waiting for a cocktail!!!!!!
Nice setting, a little bit loud. Food is good (I had the French Dip). Prices are reasonable. Service is good. Big menu.
We decided to go to The Standard at the last minute. Open Table booked us at the time requested. Service, quality of food was great. Will definitely go back.
Everything was great except that we had a woman wearing a swim suit or less at the table nearest to us. In addition one of the guys at the table was belching. Shameful .
Every thing was good, but I was ver surprised by the amount of seafood that was I n my order. I ordered the seafood spinach salad and only 3 small shrimp and 3 small scallops. very disappointed with that
The Standard really is my "standard" I've taken many guests here because I know it will always be the right balance of atmosphere, taste, price and convenience. It's so much better than what you might expect from its shopping mall location. These guys know how to run a restaurant, keeping the quality of the experience high without getting pretentious.
They ran out of one of the menu items I ordered but wasn't told until about 20 minutes later. It took very close to an hour to get our food served and it wasn't even crowded. This was disappointing because it was a graduation meal and we looked forward to one of the menu items that wasn't available
What a great place to dine,it bring back the days when I was a child and service is outstanding and the food is outstanding and the atmosphere is very
relaxing.We will be regular patrons going forward.
Made a reservation and they wanted to put us in the bar area. When we asked for a new seat the hostess got flustered and said we had to wait 10mins. Got seated and the waitress was horrible. Didn’t tell us her name didn’t say hello. Came over once to see if we needed anything. Food did not have any flavor. I used to like this place a lot. I’ll never go again.
My filet mignon was over cooked, burnt on the edges and very dry. I ordered medium. I have been here before and the food and service were better. Disappointed. The waitress was nice but seemed rushed, and it didn’t appear to be busy. I hope the next time is better.
The food Is pretty good, however service was ridiculously slow, one of our drinks was incorrect, and the drinks were generally not well made.
Food was incredible and the staff were amazing. We were the last table of the night and not once was the service lacking. They never gave the impression we were taking too long and they gave us space and time to make any decisions and enjoy the food.
Service and food delivery were very slow because they were understaffed for Mother’s day. Food was horrible. I ordered a pasta dish I have had several times before, but this didn’t even resemble the dish. Pasta was drowned in sauce and chicken was tough!
We love the Standard and frequent it often. However I was extremely disappointed in this years Mother’s Day brunch. The food was low quality and they ran out of desserts early. The chocolate fountain had issues. The hot try food was underwellming to say the least. The only bright side was the omelette and carving station. Staff was rude when I asked if they could put out more French toast for my son. My family usually enjoy the standard and have had the mother’s day bunch on 3 other occasions, but this however will be our last.
Packed in like sardines, service was good as usual. The food was kind of lack luster but decent. The chocolate fountain was seizing, and not much replacement on dessert fruits
