This is a beautiful restaurant and the fish and grits were surprisingly amazing! Definitely a portion for 2. The cocktail menu needs help, but other than that I will certainly visit again in the very near future.

I was highly impressed with the service, food and ambiance of Community Smith. An attorney I work with recommended Community Smith to me and I'm glad I took the opportunity to go. It was a date night / Pre-birthday celebration for my love. It turned out to be a wonderful night. They even had a live band playing on Friday night. I would definitely visit this place again!!

First off, my friend was on crutches and the hostess wanted to seat us at a small half-booth/chair. I had specifically requested a full booth in my OpenTable reservation which, by the way, she didn't honor. Luckily, one was available and I asked her to seat us there. The two waiters were attentive, which is why I gave two stars instead of one. The food wasn't worth the price. We had the crawfish hush puppies to start off. Barely any crawfish. I had the she-crab soup which had plenty of crab but had to ask for hot sauce to give it more flavor. I also had the shrimp and grits. Nice-sized portion and shrimp, but it looked like a mound of mashed potatoes with some tomato sauce poured on top. My friend had the skillet which he only ate half of--not a good sign. Won't be going back. Too many other restaurants with better food and prices.

This place is a quietly undiscovered gem in midtown! We had Tony as our server and he was beyond on point. He was what you wanted a server to be. Everyone was attentive to the guests without harassing them. The devil eggs with the bacon jam, really good. My wife had the porkchop and she loved it. The drinks were pretty good too. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!

Our party of 7 were all very pleased with our first visit to Community Smith. Phillip did an outstanding job as our server, including recommending an off-menu item and having a non-alcoholic mohito made for one of us. He proactively asked if we were going to the theater next, and made a special effort to get us there on time. All the food was excellent, including the appetizers, and the wines were both a good fit for our choices. Great decor, pleasant sound level. Will be back!

Food and ambiance were great! A bit overpriced in my opinion. However, the service was terrible. It took so long for someone to refill our drinks, and our server left towards the end of our meal. A new server was never introduced so we had to find someone just to get our checks.

Great to be able to have very good food in the hotel (and it was surprisingly good for hotel restaurant food). Servers couldn’t quite handle orders for a table of eight, though, and there were a few mixups and delays. Overall, quite good.

This was my second time at Community Smith and I was not impressed. I will certainly be back for the bar, as that was a great ambiance and fun feel for a drink. However, the food was not great. I ordered the hush puppies as a starter, and they were terribly over cooked and dry. Then for my meal, I only ordered a side of brussels sprouts, as I was not that hungry and they were cold. My table ordered a variety of other things from the menu and no one was overly impressed, it also took a long time to get our food and the waiter only came by once. We were not offered a second round of drinks. Our waiter also forgot to bring an order of brussels sprouts, but was kind in removing it from the bill.

again, the drinks were great and the vibe is fun, but the food is sub-par.

Loved the food! Servers were very nice, but it was a busy night, and service was a little frenetic. Entrees arrived within minutes after the salads (before we’d had a chance to take the first bite), and the server smartly offered to re-serve them in 15 minutes. The food really was delicious, though, so we didn’t focus on the staging issues. Will definitely give it another try.

We arrived at 5:00pm on Sunday before our show at the Fox Theatre , restaurant was not that busy and our food did not come out until 5:45pm which didn't allow much time for us to eat. Our server did not come back to fill our waters, we had to find her to ask. When food was served steak was rare , had ordered medium, and potatoes were cold. Our server did not come back to find out how food was, just got steak dinner to go, and didn't have time to eat
