be up to/above par
be above par
To be better than average. If you need a graphic designer, I highly recommend Jeff. His work is well above par. Her performance in sales this quarter is above par, so she deserves a bonus.
be up to par
To be as good as what was expected, required, or demanded; to be satisfactory or adequate. A: "How's your dinner?" B: "It's up to par with this place's usual standard." It's nice to see that Jenny's work is up to par again lately.
