Very busy at 5:30 on a Sat. night. But lots of available tables by 7:30. Good service, but my champagne drink was not as described on the menu and not too fizzy either. Food was really good, better than we expected for a drink place.

Good food and drinks but no hostess so an awkward wait- in a tight space. first come first served.

The Standard doesn't just serve good bar food. They serve good food that just happens to be at a bar. And the drinks weren't bad either! LOL We certainly plan to return. :-)

Great wait staff. Warm, friendly environment. Wonderful champagne cocktails and sandwiches. We'll be back AND I've already recommended it to friends!

From Our Editors

A nondescript black-and-white sign hangs outside The Standard Martini Bar, reflecting the understated elegance inside. Bartenders shake and stir 49 different martinis, including 15 modern interpretations with ingredients ranging from Godiva dark-chocolate liqueur to green tea to banana schnapps. These drinks accompany the eclectic, bistro-style menus of paninis and tapas, which draw inspiration from Cajun, Italian, and Mexican cuisines.

The decor echoes this subtle sense of refinement with its stone columns, paintings-lined walls, and caviar-filled saltshakers. The Standard Martini Bar keeps the environment lively, though, by hosting live music, karaoke nights, and trivia contests throughout the week.
