Selective DinerThe brunch was fabulous. Great selection, scrumptuous food, wonderful presentation. I would recommend it to my affiliated organizations and friends.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery day is Mother's DayI treated my mom and daughter to B. Smith's as a late Mother's day gift (she had plans with my brother last weekend). We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! The food was delicious. There was something for each of us.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI remain a fanI'm a long-time fan of B Smith's. It is one of the most attractive dining rooms on Capitol Hill, with good and often excellent service, and enough menu choices that I know a lunch guest won't be disappointed.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchWow! B Smith's Mother's Day brunch was exquisite. The food was wonderful, especially the greens, macaroni and cheese and all of that seafood (crab legs, shrimp, oysters on the half shell, etc.). They had omelets to order, waffles to order and everything we could have possibly wanted. If you haven't been there, the restaurant is in Union Station, but once inside you would never know that. It is like having an exclusive setting in the middle of one of the busiest spots in DC.
The service was seamless - every plate we finished was whisked away and our beverages were filled without our noticing.
The price was a little steep even for Washington, but in this instance, in my opinion, it was worth it.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayFood was excellent, staff was very professional and it was a great experience!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Sunday BrunchB. Smith's offers the usual buffet brunch fare - made to order omelettes and waffles, plus an assortment of breakfast, lunch, and dessert selections, including gumbo, jambalaya, and a pasta station. We went on Mother's Day, so I'm not sure if they added special items, but they also had bottomless mimosas, king crab legs, steamed shrimp, and oysters on the half shell on our visit. Everything was good, nothing was fantastic, but for a decent buffet brunch, I would definitely return. The ambiance is beautiful, in a stunning room at the Union Station. Need a second omelette station to keep the line down.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFamily Graduation OutingGreat Food, Fellowship and Family.... it was a great afternoon. !1 the Service was impecable, the waitress was great!!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food not greatWe had a small group to have a send off dinner for a young man entering military service. The service was really good. Waiters were attentive and met our requests. The overall food quality was good. I was not wowed by the crabcake that I ordered nor by the desert peach cobbler. The ambiance is great. It may have improved if they had the piano actually playing during the dinner hours.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSomething just wasn't right........After many years of hearing how good the food was, I was truly looking forward to the experience. The Spiced Wings were spicy and juicy. The B.’s Bayou Jambalaya was rather dry. The Lamp Chops my husband ordered were delightful. The crab cake I ordered....some of the potatoes on the plate were under cooked. The lemon sauce was horrible. the crab had very little if no seasoning. With one Mojito my bill was $103. I was expecting the high bill...wasn't expecting the subpar food.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food and atmosphere...ourVery good food and atmosphere...our server was attentive and the noise level was not an issue.

However, the service was a bit slow. It was not very busy when we went so I did not understand why the service was so slow. The shrimp and grits were amazing! I would definitely return to B. Smith's. Maybe next time our waiter/waitress will be a little bit faster.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMBrigette Bendzka, Milwaukee, WIThe food was great for a buffet. The typical array of southern staples created with a much healthier flare. Impressive!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways ExcellentB. Smith's is one of my favorites.
