She was so gracious and took time to take pictures with us. As a special touch, her husband came by our table later to greet us and thanked us for choosing their restaurant. The restaurant was nicely decorated, the service great and the food was delicious.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSouthern Fried Chicken DelightfulOrdered the Southern Fried Chicken and substituted home fries for the waffle.

One of us did have the waffle combination--he's was from the South.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Hospitable & accomodatingI enjoyed B Smith Restaurant. I had a dinner engagement and I was running late. Once I got to the restaurant, they accommodated me and my dinner guest immediately. they gave us a table and served us right away. we didn't have to wait a long time for the waiter which was really good.

A very nice touch when Ms. Smith greets all in the restaurant,6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMTastes Like MoreMy latest trip to B. Smith's came after seeing Motown The Musical. I was celebrating my birthday with my wife, my cousin and her fiance'. The show was great and the meal was just as memorable. It's not too often that you remember eating a salad, but the Spinach Salad with Bacon was one I will definitely remember for a long time. I went with the salmon that I remembered from a previous trip and my wife had the chicken and waffles. After she gave me a bite from her plate, I will be having the chicken and waffles next time (not that there is anything wrong with the salmon). The best part of this particular visit had to be bread pudding. OMG. As my cousin and I say, it tastes like (I want) more. We will be back. Always a good time.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMTheatre night outMy friend and I had a girls night out by seeing a Broadway play and eating dinner. We selected to eat at B.Smith's. Reservations were made for 6:30pm. We arrived on time and was seated immediately. Our server was young, professional but a bit slow. She took our order which was both from the Prix fixed menu. I had the fried chicken and waffle. Absolutely delicious. The chicken was so moist and seasoned. My friend had the crispy salmon which she enjoyed as well. The food was a bit slow coming out which in turn didn't allow us time to have our dessert there. Overall great time and would revisit.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMRecommendedHad a great brunch. Fresh squeezed OJ for mimosas, calamari and catfish were excellent. Fried green tomatoes were just ok ... but I have had the best in New Orleans, so I haven't found many great versions of this dish in New York.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable Dining ExperienceB. Smith's is a great place for dinner before a show. I loved the atmosphere and the food was delicious!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for pre-show dining.Great for pre-show dining. Very good food at a good price.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThumbs way up!I've always preferred the DC B Smith restaurant, but on my third visit to the Manhattan venue, I must say that it was a great experience. The three of us enjoyed our meals; we didn't experience the snootiness that we've noted there on past occasions. We were especially thrilled to have B. Smith drop by our table for a brief visit. I was also happy that we were able to get a reservation with plenty of time to make it to the theater.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place to DineThis restaurant for me was great, we were seated on time. The empoyees were extremely friendly. We even had the pleasure of meeting the owner and her husband, who were so down to earth and pleasant. My friends and I travel from Connecticut on my birthday every year just to hang out at this restaurant and have not been let down. I have been doing this for the past 5 years on 05/24/ and it was so nice to meet the owner and take photos on my 49 birthday.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMMy friend and I both orderedMy friend and I both ordered the BBQ ribs which were very tender and tasty.

Thank you so much. We will all be back again and again and again5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHard wafflesI took my mother for Mother's Day brunch and I ordered the chicken and waffles. The chicken was excellent, but the waffles were hard and very difficult to cut up. I want able to eat the entire waffle portion because it was so hard around the edges.
The dessert was wonderful. My mom and I both had the bourbon bread pudding. I would recommend the restaurant, just not the waffles.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was ok. It was justThe food was ok. It was just ok, the fried chicken was a little too done & very small pieces as i got chick and waffles which should have consisted of 3 wings at least, but I got some unknown parts. The rest of my food was ok. I guess that I expected more. The restaurant was very clean and the service was excellent.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMB.

Will keep coming back4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you like Southern CookingIf you like Southern Cooking you will love this venue.
They have a Prix Fix Dinner for $35 which gives you a nice sample of their dishes.
Large Bar and the drinks are expensive but at least they don't measure them with one ounce tumblers. As a Restaurant Row eatery they are convenient for Pr-Theater dining;BUT only if you have the taste for down home Southern Cooking.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA favorite of mine, especiallyA favorite of mine, especially with the 20% theater discount.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always enjoy B.

What a treat to see and chat with her!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMElegantpleasantly calm & quiet atmosphere, perhaps because there were not too manypatrons on this particular day. Crab cakes & tossed salad well done & my friend enjoyed the steak sandwich. The melon tones of the decor are also restful. B. Smith herself stopped by to see how we were doing, which was a nice touch. Definitely a good pre-theater choice!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOff to the theater!We chose B. Smith's for its proximity to the theater and by previous reputation. Service was friendly and efficient. Just what you want for a pre-theater lunch. Food was well prepared and seasoned appropriately. Nice to have the availability of both the prix-fixe and the regular breakfast/brunch menu. Very pleasant experience.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is my second time goingThis is my second time going to B.SMith. I was enjoying a romantic date on this evening and I had a wonderful time...

The food was great and the service was awesome. My 11 yo son and his buddy were able to find somehting on the menu to eat. It is a little more expensive than I would traditionally do, but it was worth it. Bonus - B. Smith was there and came by tables to ensure we were doing OK.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMA better menu.

We enjoyed speaking with B. Smith too.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our third and mostThis was our third and most wonderful trip to b's......Our waiter was outstanding, we never waited for anything!!!!!!

They have a nice variety, albeit not many items on the menu. They do, however, have some great specials to add to the short list. The food was tasty, with generous, yet not overwhelming, portions. They aren't shy with pricing...most entrees in the $30 plus range...which for chicken, fish and chips, etc. seemed a bit high.
The staff was friendly and efficient.
I would definitely return.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMService and food were moreService and food were more than I expected. Pricing was very reasonable.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOne is always happy when leavingOne is always happy when leaving B. Smith's restaurant! The food is just as expected and the service is always disciplined and professional. The fried chicken is just like Mom made it.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBrought friends from the UKBrought friends from the UK for their first Southern cooking experience. They were delighted!Especially enjoyed the black eyed-peas hummus and the chicken and waffles. Great service and a very reasonable and tasty pre-fixe menu.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was a pretheatre dinnerThis was a pretheatre dinner with my daughters, one of whom is a vegetarian, the other who has very traditional tastes. A broader selection of veggie dishes would be great, but she was happy with the fried green tomatoes and the hummus plate. The Mac and cheese got high praise, and my salmon was perfect, crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. Great greens. Also, I thought the theatre was at 8, and when I realized it was 7, our waitress moved things along quickly so that we were out in ample time. Friendly ambience and staff, I would certainly recommend it.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Post-Theater DinnerSecond time dining at B. Smith's, this time late night (after 11 pm). Our server was excellent. Food was served quickly and was piping hot. Can't go wrong with the staples of comfort food --- the Fried Green Tomatoes as an appetizer and Macaroni & Cheese entree. The triple scoop sorbet dessert to top it all of is the perfect end. Definitely a solid post-theater choice for a yummy, unrushed dinner.1/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
