The Standard is that restaurant that you return to over an over again. I visit Albany quite often and whenever I do, I seem to end up there for lunch or dinner. It offers pretty a wide range of food from burgers to seafood. I usually end up with the Risotto and Scallops..my favorite!

My co-worker ordered shrimp scampi and said that it was very bland. It was also set up with long tables, so that, had the booths been full,... More

The atmosphere is nice and the food was also good. The prices were not exactly cheap but not expensive either. Although there were some cheap eats on the menu. I would go back!

Was excited to go to the standard for valentines day, we always have great wine and appetizers so we thought we would try dinner! We had a reservation and had to wait; then couples with later reservations were taken first. We both ordered pasta dishes and neither of them had absolutely any taste! I couldn't put enough salt and pepper... More
