It's not often you stumble upon a steak place you would describe as "charming". The Standard is definitely a wonderful exception. Located in the Smith House dating back to the late 1840's, the architecture alone makes it one of a kind. The food is great - definitely try the Fried Green Tomatoes w/ Crab are amazing!!

My husband and I were in town visiting family over the holidays. We also were celebrating our 18th wedding anniversary. I had a family member tell me to try another restaurant downtown. But we did not, we stuck with The Standard, and so glad we did. From the point of arrival, the valet knew our name and offered congratulations of... More

I liked this place. It seemed pretty old fashioned - but in a classy way. Food was good quality. No problems that I can remember. Place was a little small - but I guess that makes it exclusive?

We had the opportunity to book a New Years Eve dinner at The Standard as I had made the reservation a few months out. We arrived and were greeted by a kind and respectable Valet. He opened my wife's door and led us inside. Once inside we were greeted by Billy the Maitre d', who promptly lead us to our... More

The Standard is over priced and doesn't live up to expectations. It has pretentious touches yet major shortcomings. Our waiter struck us as inexperienced and inattentive. He left dirty plates on table entirely too long for a place that charges these prices. He must've been working private parties as the downstairs dining rooms were nearly empty. They also encourage you... More

No, we did not eat here, but we talked to the manager outside as we were walking by and he took a lot of time explaining the old history and the new to us. We didn't get a chance to eat as we were leaving the next day but we will try it on our next visit to Nashville.

I've driven past this old home for 40 years but tonight was my first time to venture inside. A dinner business meeting with my wife and an out-of-town guest. We all agreed it would have been hard to beat. Fried green tomatoes with crab AND the crab bisque soup were excellent appetizers. The house steak (6 oz filet with their... More

My wife and I came to The Standard on a whim and immediately were overwhelmed by how wonderful this experience was. The valet greeted us by name as we drove up, and following a brief history of the building we were taken inside to meet the concierge. We were seated and greated by our waiter who, to his credit was... More

This restaurant is wonderful! It's set inside an historic Nashville home. The service was impeccable and the food wonderful. It's a steak place and more. Every dish we had was delicious. I'm very picky about how my steak needs to be cooked - medium well yet still juicy - and they delivered. Make sure to go out of your way... More

As soon as we walked up to the door our group was met with a personal greeting. They knew us by name and walked us into the foyer and then the bar. They gave us an outstanding table facing the courtyard where we later hung out by a fire. We were lucky enough to meet the owner and spent the... More
