In January, after leaving 40 below zero Chicago we spent a delightful break in our long trip south at The Standard at the Smith House.

Upon arriving, we were greeted with, "Hello, I am xxxx--what is your name. Come on in. We have a table waiting for you!" The rest of the service was just as friendly with intellegent and honest descriptions of the food (and a full tour of the mansion). The food was very good. The highlight was the fresh, homemade, sourdough french... More

Absolutely amazing food and service in a beautiful atmosphere. The building and decor is fabulous. We wanted our first "fancy" meal out while visiting the USA on our honeymoon. This was perfect. We had the standard filet and the chicken, both cooked and seasoned to perfection. The desserts were also incredible, never had anything quite like the half baked cookie... More

We had a family birthday celebration at the Standard. The venue is magnificent. We had 17 people and all were enchanted with the place. The food was wonderful and the ambience was superb. I highly recommend The Standard for a special occasion.

Through my work I am lucky enough to visit a few nice restaurants every month by taking customers out to dinner. Some are as nice as The Standard, but few are as unique. Pros Free valet parking (they park literally right across the street, but still, it's free). My salmon, and everyone's steaks were outstanding, as were the side dishes.... More

This is a very impressive place. The atmosphere could not be better and the food was wonderful. Plus the owner gave us a private tour! This is a definite must in Nashville!

This restaurant is located in a historical house from the 1800s. Dining is divided into two medium sized rooms. There is also a small bar area and another room used for special venues. Upstairs is a private club and cigar bar. We were greeted at the door by Billy the manager and seated next to a fireplace lit with candles... More

My family and I recently spent New Years in Nashville and we were lucky enough to enjoy the great food and southern hospitality at The Standard. The food was incredible. My 10 year old daughter ordered the fillet and was so excited that it melted like butter! I had the duck which was fantastic and cooked perfectly. Robert, our server,... More

I came here for dinner with a large group at a conference in Nashville. The food was fantastic. I highly recommend the Bacon-wrapped Bacon, a think slab of pork tenderloin wrapped in bacon and grilled to perfection. Everything, even the bread was fantastic. Save room for dessert. We ordered several and shared around. All were delicious. The waiter gave us... More
