Diner Reviews
  • "With the exception of a little wind once and a while; the outdoor dining was a great experience. Dinner was great and our waiter, attentive with great recommendations."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "The steak was very good, but all of the other food was just "okay". For the price, it should have been much better. But my big complaint is that we were rushed through our meal. When paying that amount of money, you should be allowed to savor the food and the atmosphere. But the food came out so fast and the wait staff cleared our dishes so quickly that with all four courses, we were in and out of there in 50 minutes. I won't go there again and I won't recommend it."

  • "I usually go for lunch with friends or stop by in the evening with friends...always a great meal, drinks are fabulous, service is superb... my favorite treat is S&W!!!!"
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "S&W is simply the best for fun, fine dining, seafood and outdoors experience in Boston. The staff is exemplary, Claudia a notch above that! The Lobster cocktail, filet/Surf & Turf and the Calamari shrimp frito misto was amazing. Don't miss!"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "The wine/appetizer promotion was great! We enjoyed the Chardonnay with tuna tartare, and steak carpaccio while waiting for our entrees. The outdoor patio was perfect- not too noisy, crowded, or hot. All our entrees were delicious, and I enjoyed the leftovers the next day for lunch and a snack. I always enjoy the bar scene there, but the patio may be a new favorite- while the weather lasts."

  • "The service was very professional at this location and I liked how the male staff was dressed in full uniform. The food was delicious and the wine list was extensive with many options. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for large groups and special occasions because the ambiance and service was excellent. The truffled mac and cheese is highly recommended for a side dish order!!"

  • "I've eaten at many Smith & Wollensky's so this may have just been an off night. My steak was not very good - somewhat lacked taste. I felt the wait staff was pushy in that they were too involved. I was trying to reconnect with an old friend and we kept getting interrupted verbally. If you want to come over, great, just please stop interrupting the conversation. And stop trying to "upsell". My biggest pet peeve is taking the check while we're still sitting at the table conversing. Thank you for clearing the plate and leaving the bill - I'll get to it - you've got hours before you close. Perhaps I'm being too harsh, but I was quite surprised."

  • "$21.00 for three shrimp in an appetizer named "jumbo". ABSURD, just ABSURD. Very very disappointed, and I am a regular at this location. NO MORE."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "We had a good overall experience. The lunch menu is good. Service could have been more attentive. Had to work to get attention from the waitress for water refills, more bread, etc. That detracted slightly from what was an otherwise pleasant lunch."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "Ordered the salad with steak. Steak was overdone."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "My wife and I have dined at all the steakhouse chains, and we've found that Smith & Wollensky is the most consistent of all of them. That means a lot to me. I made a special request on OpenTable, and the restaurant reacted beautifully to it. Our waiter (Michael) wasas top notch, and made a point to introduce us to all the managers on duty, including Val, the GM. That was a special touch!"

  • "Beautiful Restaurant, great service, wonderful drinks and bread, went downhill from there."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Had 4 appetizers, crab cake n scallops were good. The two tartares were lacking in flavor. Steaks were under cooked. Was not impressed with the food, there are much better steak house options that should be considered over this one"
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Went there for lunch during the week. Usual business crowd. Service was really slow. Decent burger at $16 but the onion rings were greasy and tasteless. They have those 8.5 oz diet coke bottles so they can keep charging you for refills. All in all 3 burgers 6 diet cokes. Bill with tip $90. Not worth it."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "Waiter made our experience perfect, the smoked salmon benedict and salmon salads were absolutely perfect. Service made this place perfect, our waiter was perfect"

  • "I brought my family to S & W for my wife's birthday and we were not disappointed. We have eaten in our share of fine restaurants and the quality of food, wine and service at S & W ranks it among the best. One of the tastiest meals ever!"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "The only issue was our steaks were cold. The view sitting outside was nice and my son enjoyed his Birthday. Service was overall very good."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Another perfectly prepared and delicious meal. Of all the steakhouses in Boston, I return to this one for a reason. Love it."

  • "We went for my birthday. They greeted me with a birthday card. Our waiter was great. Fun cocktail menu and my steak was perfect. Huge piece of chocolate cake for dessert."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Went to S&W specifically for burgers(aware burgers are typically served in bar/lounge areas, manager stated no problem to order if we sat outside-very kind/customer service-oriented).We were prepared to offer generous tip to the server, knowing full well that ordering burgers would yield far less of a bill than steaks.Server was rude throughout our dining experience.We ordered sides/drinks from the regular menu. Food came and was GREAT. When we finished, we stated we would like fries, burgers and mac&cheese (more than 1/2 our meal left!)boxed "to enjoy for lunch."He threw it out then was rude to my fiancé, stating we should have said something if we wanted leftovers?We had.Will go back to S&W,only b/c of damage control manager Val then did."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Sat outside on the patio overlooking the boston tea party site, and people watched. Food was wonderful. Would have Liked the option of a smaller cut of filet -10 oz is too much. But it was wonderful. Expensive though."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We each got a filet and they were delicious. Very flavorful. I got the coffee and cocoa rub...excellent. The grilled asparagus and mac and cheese were generous portions and excellent as well. The outdoor dining was great, except for a little more wind than we expected. All-in-all, a great spot and great meal."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Some diners dislike loud, crowded, chain restaurants and I'm one of them. But when the food is as good as Smith & Wollensky's, it's worth adapting to the lively atmosphere. This NY-based steakhouse has expanded to other major cities, for good reason. My filet was seared to perfection and melted in my mouth. The service was impeccable. But for those of us who prefer a quieter dining experience, I suggest arriving about an hour before the kitchen closes. If the main dining area is closed at that point, the bar area has some nice tables by the window that aren't high-tops (and I've found the service is equally attentive)."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "This new Smith and Wollensky location is the newest location and now I am able to say, I have dined at all S&W locations. I must say, I saved the best for last !!! Not that the other locations were bad, they were wonderful. They have the best steaks and shrimp bar none. Plus the service never disappoints. Thank you, Smith and Wollensky for the great food and great atmosphere. Plus Henry my waiter was the best !!!"

  • "A waiter spilled three glasses of ice water on our (adult) son. Shirt soaked and cold in the AC, he left for home. Manager Val Domnici was nice, recognized that our evening was ruined also because our son had to leave, and gave us our three dinners on the house. But he gave us no incentive to come back again. I told a manager at another restaurant about this and he said they should have given us a card for another dinner on them. As it is, we'll probably not go back."

    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "The food was very good and service staff were extremely friendly. However, 1) the table for 8 was in a horrible, high traffic area, 2) the restuarant was uncomfortably hot 3) service was very slow."

  • "Real nice spot for lunch...great food and lively atmosphere on a nice day."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "While service at S&W is usually impeccable, we noted that our server spoke too quietly, especially for outdoor lunch dining, was not attentive to our empty glasses, did not ask how our meals were once they were delivered, and cleared my plate while I was still chewing (not asking if I was finished)! I chalk this up as a fluke because great service is one of the many reasons we keep coming back to S&W. Lunch salads were outstanding and the outdoor dining experience is always special."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "I typically go to S&W 4 times a year and its always great. Steaks are outstanding. This time around, we ate outside and the 4 of us ordered Steaks (3 Rib eye bone in and 1 other). The 1 other was perfectly cooked (Medium Rare- Deep red, seered well). The 3 Rib Eye's were medium well, (We all ordered medium rare). I never do this, but for a 51 dollar steak, I decided to send it back (the 2 others followed). They were gracious on giving us a couple more sides and a BIG desert at the end (compliments). The 2nd round of Steaks were rare/medium rare. The cook missed the target this day. I thought someone should know, since Steaks are your thing."

  • "Dined for lunch twice in one week (week of June 16th) and both times it took 35-40 to receive our meals, which was much longer than usual. Our lunch on second occassion was complimentary after asking waiter why the length of time to receive our meals, which we appreciated. Waiter was very frustrated with kitchen."
