I was there Friday after work. Nobody else was in the restaurant, it was pretty empty. I wanted the cocktail “coffee & cigs” or something like that, after a while they told me they’re out of Bailey, so I need to order something else. I’m not very happy about this, can’t imagine a bar would be out of bailey.

The foods were okay. Not bad but nothing special. I wouldn’t recommend the foods. But since it was pretty empty, the ambience was nice and quiet.

Admittedly it was 4:30 in the morning, but we had a good time at breakfast!! A very unique, hip and delicious spot open 24/7 The hotel will even park your car for while you dine, a win-win for downtown. Everybody in our party of eight enjoyed different foods and all but one plate went away empty. In addition, the young lady who served us was very perky, helpful and courteous given the time of day. Many THANKS!! for the exceptional experience!

Party of 10 for a birthday. There were only 2 other tables of 2 in the restaurant (Restaurant was basically empty). We were on the patio. Horrible service: Forgot drinks & appetizers. Brought out entrees and gave us a difficult time about canceling appetizers which had not arrived yet. Manager said she would get us up to the rooftop and comp us drinks to make up for it. We waited for about 20 minutes and no one came to talk to us, give us a bill, offer us drinks, water or even acknowledge us. Finally, we all got up and we went to talk to the manager once again. Her staff couldn’t find her. When she finally came back she got nasty and said she “told us” she was going to the rooftop to speak with the manager about letting us up. She never told us. There were 3 of us speaking with her originally and none of us ever heard her say that. She insisted and became very rude and said they could not let us up unless we waited in line and they could do nothing except comp the bday boy’s meal. This is not what she originally told us and considering the bday that I planned for a month was ruined because of them, this was not acceptable. Then, they brought out security, then another manager, all agreed and apologized but they were clearly gaslighting us and were not going to do anything. There is sooo much more to the story of this destroyed evening but reliving it is painful and only upsets me more. Do yourself a favor and NEVER patronize this horribly run establishment. Especially, with a group.

Posto carino. Cameriere un po’ frettoloso, forse era alle prime armi. Cibo ottimo e soprattutto ottima qualità-prezzo.

We went for breakfast at The Restaurant at The Standard. Their menu consisted of yummy breakfast options including vegan alternatives, which made me very happy. Their food was tasty and I would recommend it as a spot for breakfast!

The restaurant is very nice, and the food is very good, but on this particular day, we couldnt sit on the patio because they said that since the umbrellas were up they couldn't turn the gas lamps on because the umbrellas can burn, but other than that the service was great and they food was spectacular.

Be prepared to wait - service was really slow. Also, at 12:15 they were already out of one of the selections and it wasn't really very busy. The food was OK but for a downtown lunch place I would expect faster service.

Everything was perfect about this place but the chewy steak and cold fries. I wanted to complain but only had an hour for lunch. Other than that this place is really nice, but the steak was horrible.

I came here back when it was dineLA during the winter and what a deal that was. Me and my 3 friends all had their $15 dineLA lunch menu and every single food item we got was delicious! I love the atmosphere and the decor of the whole place too. Would definitely come back!

My friends and I came here to celebrate a bachelorette and we all loved it! The food was amazing. Everything we tried was so tasty. The chicken was juicy, not dry, and very flavorful. The lighting at night time made everything very exquisite looking. The service was also great. It wasn’t crowded either. It was the perfect way to start our night and we couldn’t have been more happy with this place!

The service was really amazing, sweet people. Tasty cocktails. Dim light ambiance.
Good for late cravings. Try the Impossible Vegan Meat.

We had the cauliflower appetizer which was okay, nothing special. So that was a bit disappointing. The salmon was amazing, small potion but what can you expect from an expensive restaurant. This is definitely a special occasion type of place as I’m sure you’d want to eat bigger portions any other day in your life.

Terrible size portions for the price. For a 4 star restaurant, I wad deeply let down. Considering it was Thanksgiving and we drove from. Orange County, huge disappointment. Never again and I will talk bad about it, every chance I get.

Old fashioned (60's/70's) diner vibe is fun. Great menu with broad selection is perfect for large group, but food arrived cold or was forgotten. Polite, accommodating servers, but not very attentive overall, and it wasn't crowded. Get their potatoes or you'll miss out.

Staff is friendly and very accommodating. When I asked for their opinion because I couldn't decide, their knowledge of the dish was given and I was able to make my decision. Burrata with peaches were delectible. I had a very tasty lamb chop and would recommend it. It was for the dine la lunch menu and very much worth it. Went back again and had the pasta and this, too, was delicious! I've been working across the street for a few years and didn't know about this great restaurant till Dine LA!

Liked the decor and location. Meal started well with first course. Main course was not cooked as ordered in 2 out of 3 plates. Service was slow 2nd half of meal. I would try it again to see if this was an off experience because food was good.

My favorite color is yellow so walking in to find that was the restaurant theme color was a great surprise. Really good option for dinner after work. It may take a minute to get food ordered but it was worth the wait; be sure to leave enough time inbetween anything you plan to do after. Those who work there are amazing and friendly; They made my guests and I feel special for my birthday dinner, gave equal amount of customer service/attention to others, and my birthday dessert (Bourbon Creme Brûlée was amazing).

This place was a pleasant surprise! Food was crazy good, vibrant, fresh, great cocktails, and even better service!
My husband created his own omelette and not only was it the most beautiful omelette I've ever seen, but sooooo good too! I'd highly recommend everyone try! :)
