    The family and I came here after church on Sunday. Was wonderful service. The food was awesome. Portions are a little smaller than I expected. The dressing on the wedge was terrible, very dill forward ratio of dill needs to be better balanced and or dialed back. Ribs are authentic and on another level delicious. The kids shrimp and rice came with two shrimps’… sort of laughable. The rice under the shrimp was by far some of the best rice I’ve ever had. The coffee was delicious freshly brewed with a beautiful presentation. We also had the salmon and Caesar which was delicious, salmon portion was meager. All in all—- we will be back.

    Service was really good, waitress was attentive and able to answer any questions we had. Every food item was delicious, steak was very tender and juicy. Burger was really buttery yet super savory. Mashed potatoes and lobster mac & cheese were also very delicious. Would definitely come visit again and try out other dishes

    This was my first time back to International Smoke since the pandemic began. We were greeted and seated immediately. Our server was delightful, friendly, helpful and gave great service overall. Though, she did not provide timely or regular check-backs. The roasted cauliflower was the yummiest I've ever tasted. The seabass was presented beautifully and very flavorful, a win for sure. The seasonal cocktail was too sweet for my liking but the server was gracious and replaced it without skipping a beat. (I'm a Manhattan or Martini drinker and should know better than to venture into house craft cocktails ;-). The prices are definitely on the high side, but this is a nice spot for a celebratory meal. I appreciated that the music was moderate, not blaring like many restaurants.

    Food was good - we did the tasting menu - the quantity was substantial - usually tasting menus are smaller portions to try the flavors - in this case we were overwhelmed with portion size. Not a problem - food was great and we had leftovers for the kids! service was excellent and all in happy to return

    The food was as good as I remembered but for the price ($250/couple) I would expect at least four star service and it was only two. Started fine, they got busy and REALLY dropped the ball. Left frustrated that we spent that much money for a birthday dinner and the service let down the food in a big way.

    My guy and I came on a last minute date. Thank goodness for Open table because the restaurant said they had no availability. The service with Velma was extraordinary. We loved the food and cocktails. We ordered American ribs, truffle Caesar salad, and truffle whipped potato. I would highly recommend anything and all things truffle. Those potatoes were to die for. We saw a lot of other date nights and I would definitely go back.

    I really do love this place. However this time we purchased off the menu cocktails. We were unaware of the costs. Two of the four cocktails were $25 each. Although they were good, I would rather spend my money on food. I would prefer to know this in advance. But I would still s restaurant and go again

    We tried the coursed dinner for my husbands 30th birthday and while it was WAY too much food for two people, each dish was absolutely delicious. They take into account dietary restrictions which is very nice. We thought this was a great way to experience International Smoke for the first time because you get to taste all of their signature dishes and figure out what you like best. Needless to say we did not finish even close to everything but overall the experience was very nice.

    I got VIP complimentary appetizers and then was charged $3.75. (Out of principal of a free dish to the table, that is unheard of) I have never been given VIP food and then charged for it. My girlfriend asked for a heat lamp and the waiter said yes. It never showed up and nobody said a word about it. I ordered rib tip Mac and cheese that never even showed up. This place has gone way down hill which is why I stopped bringing my friends here. Very disappointing.
