Unbelievable Dining Experience!

First, I need to say we love country music, but after navigating the mass of humanity on Broadway on a Saturday night, we stumbled upon this lovely restaurant on our way back to our hotel. Billy the maître d' greeted us warmly and we were extremely well taken care of for the rest of the evening. The filet and steak... More

We had a good meal here. It's a more formal venue than many in Nashville, and the service is excellent. I refrained from giving it 5 stars because while everything was good, nothing was really amazing and it was a little bit pricier than most of the other places we ate in the neighborhood.

Our 2nd trip to the Standard. I really want this to be my favorite restaurant in Nashville because all of the "non food" amenities are here in place. Atmosphere, history, unique location, good service, general ambience. What keeps it from being #1 is, unfortunately, the food. Don't get me wrong--the food is good, just not great. Examples--I got the shrimp... More

Classic dining experience. I was entertaining and that can be stressful as I picked the restaurant based on reviews in trip advisor.Place is like going back in time when service and quality mattered. Quiet and cultured. Wine list was good and service was outstanding. Food was fabulous. While this is a steak house ,party had a filet, the lamb and... More

I loved this place! Free complementary valie parking was helpful being in downtown. The steak, eggs and biscuit plate was amazing. Plenty of food and I got full, cleaned my plate! Had nice outdoor seating and jazz music playing. I would definitely recommend this place. When I visit Nashville again I will go back!

We were there for 2nd time celebrating a birthday. Service outstanding. Food amazing. Venue charming and beautiful. No complaints or even suggestions to improve. Even a well done steak cooked to perfection and that's hard to do. Will go back again and again!

An old school feel of cultured dinner night out. Great menu, quiet and comfortable feel. You'll be pampered, and well cared for. Food is tasty and served like your a celebrity. It has a private club feel that makes the place like home.

A wonderful place for a great date night with my wife. We were greeted immediately by the maitre d. We had a reservation and were seated right then. A server was waiting on us at the table to introduce himself, etc. Great service. Only issue was a female server kept reaching across our plates vs going to the other side... More
