Please take this post down. we had complications that evening on many fronts that altered service and standards. For you to blatantly tell people that we are going out of business is very disturbing. You are affecting the livelihood of a staff of 30 hard...More

The food products seem good. Service is great, really nice but not gastro. The cooking was really average and far from gastro. Too many flavors, too fat even for a dish that did not need any. Too much salt as well. Seems like no-one tries...More

We had butternut soup, harvest salad, duck pastrami and poached pear. Food was really tasty. Nothing too sweet, overcooked, too big... Presentation is also meticulous. Nothing to complain about in terms of cuisine. Of course, not cheap but ok regarding the quality. If you can,...More

Welcome to modern American food with serious local flavor; or as we like to say, rustic but refined. Just some of The Stand's distinctions include charcuterie, a dedicated vegan menu, craft beers, private dining areas, a 10-seat chef's table and so much more. It's downtown cool with an uptown vibe.
