For a big restaurant, The Standard does a great job of staying interesting and funky. It's got a 50's or 60's "rat pack" vibe and a great menu that offers all sorts of different styles of food. I've never had trouble getting a table there and the service is very good. For what you get, the prices are decent as well! Highly recommended!

The Standard has very good food at reasonable prices. If you are going to the movies or going out to eat with the family, then this is a good choice. I would not go here for a special occasion with my wife as it is more of a family setting.

We love this place on weeknights the food is good the service is good and we can get in and out without along wait..
the hot bread is so good you can have A full dinner and someone else at the table can order A burger. I do not like the desserts very much A little to much like the ones you get in diners also they should have better bottled water thats A must for A resturant of the level.
