The Standard at the Smith House
Greeted with name. Server needed more help.
Atmosphere and ambiance were great! It’s a great setting; however, for the setting and targeted experience the food is sub par. I have eaten at a large amount of higher end steakhouses, and the quality of the food was well below par.
Awesome experience, a lot of history in this place. Great food, exceptional staff and service.
We had a wonderful dinner at The Standard during our recent trip to Nashville. Very cool architecture, excellent service and great food. Tables were very well spaced and atmosphere lends itself to quiet conversation.
We ordered pasta linguine with JUMBO Gulf shrimps.
This was written on menu.
Shrimps were mini mini baby shrimp.
We mentioned it to the waiter. He did nothing about it.
My chicken was not hot.
Billy and Kelley were amazing and deserve 6 stars!! These are two people that really made our experience special.
Steaks and Rack of lamb were fairly cool when served, lamb had very little of the peach sauce described, just not a real flavorful meal...the corn was the highlight, very good, and the dessert, chocolate mousse cake, was very good (comped due to sending lamb back to be warmed (I don’t send things back). Ms. Smith was a delightful hostess, and the historic setting and ambience was very, very special. We were all just honestly underwhelmed with the quality of the meal itself.
Great service, made sure we had the best seat possible for our special night. As always the food was prepared as ordered and presentation was fabulous
Wonderful ambiance, service and the food was outstanding
This was hands down one of my absolute favorite dining experiences of all time.
The drinks in the bar were great, everyone was so sweet and friendly. The wait was short but long enough to enjoy the bar and fire. Our meal was spectacular. Service was great. Timing was perfect. Best steak of my life. Dessert was literally to die for. If I lived in Nashville I would be a regular!!
This was our third visit to The Standard at the Smith House, and we loved it again! Each visit, the owners and staff have made the experience very enjoyable and memorable. We LOVE the food, and service is outstanding. We always enjoy a drink before dinner in the indoor courtyard by the fireplace. Highly recommend for a special occasion!
Had a drink at the bar before dinner it is an amazing area. Food and service was awesome.
We went to The Standard to celebrate a retirement and it could not have been better. Excellent service and the food all around was perfect. Quite a unique atmosphere, and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an adult dinner situation.
It was outstanding.
Staff were all very friendly and courteous even though they seemed a little overwhelmed by the volume of business. The rack of lamb could have been warmer, but the flavor was good. My wife enjoyed her filet, and we both were pleased with our sides. The chocolate mousse cake was excellent.
Step back in time for the oldest in home resturant in Nashville. Pretty cool with great food
Salmon undercooked, Sea Bass a bit rubbery. I know they are a steak house, but a great steak house knows how to prepare seafood.
Absolutely phenomenal. Food was wonderful and so was the service. Will definitely be back to take my parents here the next time they visit me in Nashville.
Amazing! Awesome! Loved it. Wes was a great waiter. We're from Palm Beach and are used to eating at nicer restaurants... The Standard fits right in with the best restaurants anywhere.
Beautiful way to celebrate anniversary with my wife
We had the most wonderful experience at the Standard. This was our second time to visit and we were not disappointed. The food was wonderful, the service was amazing, and the overall experience was phenomenal. If you have not been to the Standard yet you should really make time to go.
Wonderful experience. Great food. And beat Long Island tea ever.
This was the best experience I’ve had in a long time. The service was amazing from start to finish. Old world dining with class. They really know how to treat their customers. What an experience we had. I would go back year after year. Food was so delicious and they took the time to explain the menu very well.
The restaurant is wonderfully appointed, the staff was remarkably friendly and attentive but best of all the food was truly delicious.
Fantastic experience, great bar, outstanding service and great steaks. We were met on the sidewalk and escorted inside. First class restaurant. Only potential negative is small wine list but with good quality.
Amazing, unique experience! Exudes class and elegance. Love the attention to detail of the staff.
We went there for my husbands birthday and it was the best dinner date we’ve ever been on. The food was amazing. The house is super old and cool if you like character. We will be back!!
If you are looking for a beautiful and quiet private dining experience with amazing food and service then this is your place! We had a fabulous time in this beautiful old house and it was perfect for a romantic birthday dinner with my husband while in Nashville.
Celebrating our 25th anniversary by visiting Nashville and the Standard was the perfect end to a perfect day. We got there early for our 7:30 reservation and were seated at the bar right in front of the fireplace. Had 2 great drinks and then were escorted to the dining room by Mrs Smith. We had a tremendous meal! My only tiny knock is that although our sever, Wes, was very professional and efficient, he didn’t seem particularly happy. He never cracked a smile :(
Can’t wait to come to Nashville again and eat here!!!
Best steakhouse in nashville
The food was delicious and the service was extraordinary from the valet who parked our car to the server. Very good experience. It was quiet and relaxing and delicious!
Very friendly, informative, wonderful atmosphere and delicious food!
Great food, great service, overall wonderful experience
We went to the Standard before the CMA awards and it was perfect! The atmosphere was perfect, quiet, elegant, full of character and very close to the venue! They even got us in and out quickly bc traffic was so crazy.
This was probably one of the best restaurants I’ve been to in a long time. If you’re looking for a true Nashville and experience the standard is the place to go. The hostess owner Sharon was absolutely fabulous, full of history full of knowledge of Nashville. The service was top-notch and the food was amazing. I will definitely visit The standard again and I will definitely recommend it!
This was a lovely experience, my husband and I will definitely visit again.
I loved how we were greeted outside, All staff members were prompt and polite. The food was amazing!!!
Thank you for offering such a great place to dine!!
Absolutely fantastic restaurant. Interior was beautiful and felt special from beginning to end.
Wonderful evening! Almost private dining in the Makers Mark room! Food was amazing!!! Great experience!!!
From the minute we walked in we fell in love with the Smith House. We were greeted by Ms. Smith, she was the sweetest lady.
The service was great. The food phenomenal, good wine selection. No room for dessert, but looking around at others the desserts looked yummy.
We will definitely go back if given the chance and recommend to friends
