Diner Reviews
  • "The restaurant itself was smaller than I expected. Food was delicious but the portions were small and over priced for the amount of food provided."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "The food was a gastronomic joy and the service impeccable. The cheese and meat appetizers were delicious. And the main courses challenged the taste buds with multiple layers of deliciousness. We plan to go back again and enjoy the other options."

  • "My boyfriend and I went to dinner with my parents on a Friday night. I expected it to be busier, but we did eat an early dinner, so that may have been part of the reason. Our server, John, was very attentive and knowledgeable. He was kind enough to accommodate my parents' requests for substitutions in their meals. The food was outstanding in every way! We ordered a crab cake and the cheese curds for appetizers, and those didn't last long. My dad said his whiskey old fashioned was the best he'd ever had (and he's had many). My trout entrée was visually impressive and had glorious crispy skin. The carrot cake was traditional but impeccably made. My out-of-town folks loved the experience! Of course, I enjoyed it as well. We'll be back!"

  • "This is not your average cookie cutter hotel. It has an urban vibe that is sexy, comfortable and artsy. I felt like I could leave my cares at the door and relax into the environment. The staff was hip and cool and offered great customer service. I enjoyed the atmosphere and the well thought out menu. I will definitely return again!"

  • "The new brunch menu is pathetic. None of the items had good flavors or consistency. After reading the new menu, I almost left...I have never been so disappointed in my life."

  • "Best brunch menu and atmosphere I have experienced. Great selections and everything was delicious. Highly recommend this! We will be staying at the Iron Horse again and hit the Sunday brunch also..."

  • "we had 2 couples and were seated in a more open booth but nicely set. The only thing is it was a bit noisy in open area. The food was outstanding. Calamari lobster bisque, the pork tenderloins on red cabbage was outstanding. I recommend the salad with avocado. server was excellent during the meal. after we had paid no server came back for drinks. we moved to the bar and music was too loud for conversation. price was good for meal caliber and portion. I would recommend for a romantic couple. If you have 2 couples or more, request a table in the regular restaurant area versus open lobbyfor conversation. If you wish to relax later for drinks, tell your server. No one ever checked back in with us."

  • "Our meal has good but didn't have the Wow factor I was expecting. The lobster bisque soup was good but not the best ever. The salad with almonds was very tasty and had uniqueness. Just the right amount of dressing so it wasn't over powering. This item was one of the best restaurant salads. Our main dishes, beef and chicken, were also good and flavorful but lacked that extra special twist to knock it out of the park. The wait staff was attentive but it did take an unusually long time to receive our meal. We were not in a rush ( they had asked upon our arrival at the table) so this was fine. The setting is hip/trendy with a nice warm feeling. Our group agreed that others in town have done a better job with this food concept."

  • "The rustic, industrial ambiance of the restaurant is immediately noteable by the solid line of candles in old glass jars lining the edges of the restaurant establishing a warm, soft lighting. The server was extremely knowledgeable of the menu items, history of the restaurant and building it is in. The food was superb!! From the local salad greens to the Carrot Ginger soup (best I've had world wide), the perfectly cooked and seasoned Wild Salmon and "butter in you mouth" Beef Tenderloin, and accents to dish with a supreme grain and splendid vegetable. We will be back!"

  • "Disappointing. Small portions, high prices, not the greatest selection."

  • "An eclectic brunch. Both buffet and entree items. Entree includes fish tacos with blue gill. Meat lovers delight. Great ribs sausage flannal hash prime rib and ham. Omelet bar and sides. Slightly pricey. Entree are now small plates as side to buffet."

  • "I dined at Smyth with my wife for her birthday. Our server, Inga, was attentive and personable. The ambiance was perfect for a romantic outing. Loved the intimate lighting, especially the candles in mason jars, and the decor was rich yet comfotable. I think it would be perfect for anyone going on a date or with a small group. The food was artistically presented and well executed. I kept remarking at how well every component in each dish complimented the others. The dishes were balanced, somewhat creative, satisfying and delicious. We both noted that the dishes seemed rather seasonal, and while I would almost hate for the menu to change before I get to try everything, I am excited to see what else Smyth's kitchen comes up with."

  • "This was our second time at Smyth, the first time was great, which is why we made a reservation for Christmas eve. We were seated next to a large family group that included 2 children under the age of 4 who, when screaming, made talking and listening difficult (especially for an 89 year old.) Not the restaurant's fault, but add that to the poor food quality..... 2 out of 5 enjoyed their meals. Dry, overcooked chicken was a disappointment (ordered by 2 people) as was a side of bland, tasteless macaroni. The lamb shank and Chestnut Tagliatelle were very good - as were the roasted brussel sprouts."

  • "No offense to my dear aunt, who made Thanksgiving dinner for my entire childhood... But this was the most outstanding Thanksgiving meal any of us had ever had! They had all the standards...but with twists. The sliced turkey was delicious...the turkey leg confit was even more amazing. Brussels sprouts with bacon, roasted cauliflower, and sourdough stuffing were treats. The ONLY suggestion I'd have for improvement is to plan better for the dessert table. When we arrived at 3pm the dessert table was full and looked amazing. By the time we went for dessert an hour later, there was hardly anything left. The party sitting next to us went for dessert about 15 minutes after us, and there wasn't even pumpkin pie left...they were quite upset."

  • "Checked in with hosted right at 6:30 for our reservation and my fiancé and I were seated right away. Within seconds the sever came over with glasses and water and the menus. Took our drink order and gave us time to look over the menu. We ordered 2 tenderloin steaks medium.. The bread and butter came within a minute; it was warm and crisp. We were seated in a corner booth and the candles are very romantic. Steaks arrived on hot iron plates; cooked to perfection. They were so tender they could be cut with your fork! Amazing flavor. Came with scalloped potatoes that were also wonderful. One of the best steaks I have ever had and my fiancé agrees! We will be back! Total cost for 2 steak dinners, 1 side, 4 cocktails =$125 before tip"

  • "We had a group of nine and the only table that would accommodate us was the high-top. Both the tenderloin & ribeye steaks were tasty. Would have like a little more au gratin potato on the plate though. Decent wine list. We also had two children in the group and the staff was very helpful including preparing my niece shrimp even though they weren't on the menu. Especially like the lounge & bar area where our group lingered before and after dinner. Would definitely go to Smyth again."

  • "1. Use OpenTable to make a reservation at Smyth at The Iron Horse. Yes, the internet has made it to Wisconsin. 2. Order a Brandy Manhattan Sweet. Why not? It's Friday. 3. Order anything you like. Fine dining has also made it to Wisconsin. 4. Sit back and enjoy. Thanks for helping us show off MIlwaukee heritage and high life in one stop!"

  • "Smyth @ the Iron Horse Hotel did not disappoint at all. It is a magnificent restaurant with a wonderful selection of foods to fit multiple pallets. We had a business dinner there with about 8 people. The service was great and everyone enjoyed a wonderful meal. I would highly recommend it to anyone."
