The attraction for The Standard is the building and the history of it. Take time to read the history presented on the menu. Check out the ballroom after dinner. Our server, Wesley, was friendly, but lacked information about the details of the menu. Our food was generally too salty. Crab Bisque salty. Rock fish salty. Langostino too salty. Fried green...

Based upon a previous visit, Joshua Smith was kind enough to allow us into the private club on the upper level. Talk about a cool, exclusive kind of place! The old mansion has amazing history, the group of others that visit are cool and friendly, with everyone having fun discreetly, in their own way. My wife and I loved the... More

My entire experience was amazing. From the moment I pulled up to the valet until the moment the valet brought my car to me, everything was over the top! The food was delicious. Our server was wonderful. The GM (Billy I think was his name) gave us a tour and a great history lesson on the place.

Amazing dinner. The food was beyond delicious. I went with a private business group. We had an amazing time. The service was phenomenal and the food was succulent. I highly recommend the steak and cheesecake for dessert!

We made reservations and visited The Standard for the occasion of my mother's 80th birthday celebration. The overall experience was amazing, and I summarize why below: Atmosphere: the establishment is located in downtown Nashville, in a period maintained mid 1800s antebellum home. From the original wooden front doors to the architectural details in and out, the atmosphere of the restaurant... More

The restaurant is the first floor of a magnificently restored 1840's ante-bellum Italianate townhouse. With its elegance, and sophisticated and accommodating service, it is a perfect special occasion venue. The steak house menu has good but limited choices for fish lovers (e.g., delicious Blackened Chilean sea Bass) and steak lovers (e.g., "The Standard Filet" plated with a scrumptious truffle hash...

The ambiance was amazing. The valet out front knew we were coming and called us by name. The dining area is beautiful and classy, the cocktails and appetizers were great, and the waiter had ready recommendations for wine and entrees. My wife and I ordered the two entrees that the waiter recommended. Based on everything we had experienced so far,... More
