My first comedy show in NYC and really enjoyed it. Went with my 18 yr old daughter who also enjoyed it. I will go back next time in NYC.

In general not a memorable food experience but the comedy was fun

I ordered a Stand burger that I was splitting with a gluten intolerant friend. When we asked the waiter if the bun could be placed on the side he replied "I don't think we can do that." Baffled my friend and I exchanged puzzled glances and insisted that the burger could indeed be served bun-less. The waiter said he'd have to ask the chef if such a thing was do able. After several bun related debates our order for a medium rare burger was finally placed. The result was indeed bun less but as for the medium rare part well it was more like well done and very unsatisfying. As for the "highly acclaimed" Waffle fries, they were nothing special and reminded me too much of what I used to get at my local Ice skating rink as a kid.

Our waiter I think eventually realized that my friend was gluten free not because she was on a weight loss program but rather because she has a genuine allergy and hes attitude fortunately lightened up.

Would I return for the comedy and a draft beer yes. Would I return for the food and cocktails nope.

Thank Jess R

I recently went to The Stand for dinner and a 10pm show and cannot wait to return. I have been to almost every comedy club NYC has to offer and I think The Stand has something much more to offer than just great jokes. I love how it is a nicer, cleaner, and more upscale establishment than most of the downtown grungy comedy clubs scattered around the colleges. The upstairs restaurant is fantastic and I would definitely return there for a meal whether I am seeing a show or not...fyi you MUST try the fried mozzarella as an appetizer! And the drinks are amazing, but best of all there is no drink minimum so you aren't compelled to buy anything during the show which is rare in NY. After having one drink with dinner though I immediately ordered two more downstairs because they were so yummy. Lastly, the show was phenomenal. I haven't laughed that hard in years! The setting downstairs is so intimate too that you feel like your not really at a show but kind of just getting together with friends and having some laughs...lots of laughs.
