The Smith - East Village
Great brunch!Went to east village location for Mother's Day brunch. The food was excellent and the service outstanding. Was crowded but we had reservations and were seated immediately. Will definitely go back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Lunch Spot with FriendsThis is an affordable, fun lunch/brunch spot to dine with friends. We had a reservation and were seated right away. Service was quick as well. Did not look fun if you did not have a reservation though as it was quite packed with people waiting by the bar. The potato chips with blue cheese fondue was very good for an app. Fattening but good.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great!! PortionsFood was great!! Portions were generous.

Although it is more of a young crowd, it's a comfortable atmosphere for any age diner.
The brunch is always great! My favorite is the BLT +e but burgers are great too5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat as alwaysI have been to The Smith many times and have not been disappointed. With a group of 3, our table was quite small, though, so that was a little disappointing. We were seating right away, even though there was a bit of a line, which is always nice. The Smith is a go-to place for me, especially when I have friends visiting from out of town. The food is great and the prices are fair, with a good wine list and fun cocktails.
The brussel sprouts are always a must get.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMQuality of food - extremelyQuality of food - extremely good! Staff is attentive. Table is always available as per the time of reservation and special requests honored.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMI had brunch there w/ a friend.I had brunch there w/ a friend. It was bustling & a little loud inside. I'm very glad we made a reservation. Another two top was seated before us even though we arrived first and had a reservation for the same time - I'm guessing because it was a mother-daughter pair? I ordered the country breakfast & would have loved it, but the gravy did not come on the side. It was drenched all over my food - I had asked for crispy bacon & though it was cooked as I requested the gravy made it on the soggy side, so I wished the waiter had picked up on the idea that perhaps this wasn't my preference. The gravy was tasty though, but there was way too much on my plate. Good value. They did try to upsell us on bread though some came w/ our meal.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMRachel was an awesome server.

We were seated right away downstairs, however the downstairs event room they use for larger parties, felt pretty isolated from the rest of the restaurant. Everything was great beyond that tiny detail.

the pace of the meal experience was great; you weren't rushed, nor were you wondering where your waiter went; even the support staff was quick to clear a finished plate. I just loved the service especially when they know your next move before you do

I am glad we made a reservation through Open Table. The place was packed.
I had one of their passion fruit drinks. It was delicious, like a passion fruit mojito.
