The Standard not handicap friendly.. I was very disappointed to see that there was no handicap access to either the dining room or the restroom. I was wanting to take my grandmother their for her birthday but when I inquired I was told that they could help her up the stairs with a portable ramp. That doesn't help the restroom issue. When I asked further about the restrooms it was obvious that the employee didn't have an answer. I thought all restaurants had to have handicap restrooms? Frustrating!
overrated. Trying very hard to have the southern charm of restaurants in Charleston and Savannah, but far from succeeding. Food is overpriced and I think you can have a more romantic dinner and better food for the money at Cafe Margot, Park Cafe, or Acorn. Owner is very pretentious and trying very hard to give the impression of an elite dining experience. I wasn't buying the act. It ia a beautiful home, but not in a very nice part of downtown. It is a little scary leaving the restaurant at night.
Customers loved! Dress didn't matter! Wonderful music. Staff that was too much fun!.
The house itself is 1800 federal that has be painstakingly restored. A wonderful setting for the oustanding food that is served. We had 4 friend for dinner and the hotel had said we wouldn't be disappointed. From the time we were seated it was a wonderful time. The service staff is above commindation. They are personable and work together like they have been around each other forever. Everyone in the room was happy and had smiles on their faces. The chef brought out some item personally. He didn't seem to be checking on anyone just observing. He should be pleased.
Nashville you have an undiscovered wonder in this place!
We had the fried green tomatoes that were stacked with a tasty romalade and hollandaise sauces and crab meat. The tomatoes were crisp ont crunchy. The crab was fresh, not fishy at all. The sauce was perfectly smooth and savory. Another person had the watermelon salad that did not seem to consist of watermelon though that was what was in it. It had mint and onion, a taste that has to be experienced. The gumbo had the perfect rue taste and had enough spice to give you at home taste without hurting.
I had a bacon and bacon with corn and lima beans that was to die for. It had the perfect amount of smokey flavor. It was like a tenderloin with a bacon wrap. It sat in the middle of a mix of corn and limas that was crisp not cooked to death. Another person had the veal that was cooked so perfectly that it was like eating a roast, such comfort food. The grouper was so fresh and perfectly cooked that it melted in your mouth. The ribeye was cooked perfectly with a pile of onion rings on top.
The desser though we were already too full and hadn't cleaned out plates, was also were the experinece. A flan type of item that was pumpkin flavored with a light carmel toppping, or the warm pecan pie with ice cream or the peach cobbler that seemed as if the peaches were right off the tree. It was all to die for! I wish I lived closer. I will return!!!
I loved it!
Best place for wedding reception. My husband and I had our wedding reception at The Standard and it was more than we could have ever expected! I can't even count how many people came up to me and said it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding reception. Joe Shaw and team did an amazing job of creating our personalized menu and setting up everything just as we had planned. The shrimp and grits, chocolate chip cookies, and mini BLT's were so delicious. The service was also outstanding. The Standards personelle went out of their way to make sure every guest and the bride and groom had everything they needed to enjoy such a special occation. Thank you to The Standard for helping to make our reception unforgettable!
Oh Delightful! I just found this place and my heart is fluttering!!!

It as a perfect evening. My husband and I went here for a date nite, and let me tell you, it was the best place we have been here in Nashville! We are new the area and have been on the quest to find a favortie spot, and we have found it! We have become regulars, the staff even remembers our names when we walk in! The food is incredible everytime we go, and the service is the best around. Try the Standard once and you will be hooked! It is awesome!
Divine!. The Standard at the Smith House is simply divine! I love the atmosphere. Lots of attention to detail, and I am all about details! I thoroughly enjoyed my entire visit and can't wait to go again. A real treat! great spot for lunch with the girls.
