The Standard at the Smith House has a long southern history. But is making history even today. They have taken well know southern comfort foods and brought in accompanying flavors that truly compliment or enhance the dish. The food was delicious from the lightly breaded fried green tomatoes with chunky crab meat and mustard sauce. What a great flavor experience.... More

For the history buff, this is a cool place with a fine history, but to me, I didn't care for the actual facility. I'm not one for having a moose head stare at me while I eat. Food was good (asked for well done steak, wasn't. oh well!). Service and Host were amazing. When we went, we were the only... More

The reservation host is a PRO. The waiter was informative and energetic who came from the private club.

Talking about character! This place is ALL character.....as soon as you walk in you are greeted as if a mogul arrives to its mansion where the servants line up to greet him. I'm a very easy going person so I was not uncomfortable but amused at the formality. They have really good house Wines, one of the best filet mignons... More

The impressive service started when the Valet showed us in before he took the car. Had a small private room for a business group. Plenty of servers kept the wine glasses full and the food coming out hot and fresh which many places struggle with for a group.

The Standard has been on my list for a special celebration for quite a while. I walked through those very front doors into the historical 19th century building when I was a child taking piano lessons from Susie Mae Beasley on the second floor. It was thrilling to revisit the house and to be so warmly welcomed by Billy Corr,... More

This steakhouse is in a very old homelike building, near downtown Nashville, TN. The only parking is valet in front of the restaurant or city parking down the street. Valet parking is free, except for the tip to the very nice valet driver. The food was exceptional and the service was over the top. Expect to pay $100 -$200 for... More
