While the staff might look a bit edgy (very Fitzroy) they were all lovely happy people. The food was amazing, quite diverse, something for everyone.

I had the $80 menu which was awesome. I didn't expect such variation in the dishes and the quantity was too much (but not complaining). So good to have delicious food instead of the usual burger & chips. Staff very attentive, friendly & on the ball.

Great food and service but they are very strict on booking times and we should have arrived a little early rather than late so felt a bit rushed, hence not a good rating on value.

Love the food. We have the 2 cook books & have wanted to come to the restaurant for a long time. The banquet for night time only is pricy. Can individual meals be ordered at night time sittings?

World class. Have been dying to eat here for ages and everything was quality. As a non-vegan (but not an anti vegan), and having got the Smith and Deli cookbook, I was excited to try vegan food from an elite setting and it absolutely delivered.
For any carnivores out there who turn their nose up at the thought of vegan food, I would put my mortgage on Smith & Daughters blowing these misconceptions out of the water.
Food aside, the service was also exceptional - prompt, relaxed, friendly and involved.

Top marks all round and I can’t wait to go again.

There is nothing to complain about when it comes to a Smith and Daughters experience, except that the place is too popular (and not cheap). The food however is remarkably good and the staff are attentive and good-natured.

Great food but we felt like a little rushed - food coming out at a rate that made us feel a little like they wanted us out the door. Still highly recommend.

I was actually disappointed with the lunch menu. It was very limited.

We weren’t really greeted at the door when we walked in and awkwardly waited for someone to come over and seat us for our booking.

Also, we booked lunch for 1pm half way through our meal the waitress came over to tell us that the kitchen was closing and that if we wanted to order anything else we needed to right then and there. I felt like we were going to get kicked out!

The pizza wasn’t anything that amazing and my non vegan friend that I’d pumped up to eat at this restaurant wasn’t very thrilled.

A really special experience. We ordered from the à la carte menu. Lots of GF options and allergens clearly labelled on the menu. Everything was exquisite, excellent service, beautiful presentation, subtle flavours and textures. Creative reimaginings of dishes. They even let us stay past our booking time, as my friend was 20 mins late. Highly recommend for a special night out, or just for some drinks.

First time - it was great! Food was amazingly good; refreshments were a refreshing change; dessert was delicious. When you get a chef who knows how to do Vegan in a tasteful way, it makes all the difference. Waiting team members were polite, efficient and worked with confidence, they new their stuff. I have already highly recommended to my work colleagues.

This was the best vegan fine dining experience I've ever had. We had the banquet - it was huge, value for money and we couldn't finish it all. Everything tasted fantastic and the dishes were so creative.
The servers were fantastic and so attentive - they really understood the menu.
I'm already organising to go there again next week. 10/10

Excellent experience, validating that vegan food can be delicious and sufficiently filling. Loved the food and service, only downside was that we were sitting at the bar and there really wasn't any leg room so had to sit sideways.

I’ve been fascinated by food forever, my parents are both chefs and have taught me so much about cooking but! their style of cooking is so far from what I cook now. I became intrigued by vegan cooking a few years back now and a friend gifted me the ‘Vegan Eat’ cook book and it amazed me the things people can come up with through fruits and vegetables. Smith & Daughters does not fall short in this regard. From the stunning decor to the incredible staff, this place is outstanding. But! the food is something else. I struggle to come up with the right words to describe the taste this place leaves on your tongue.
The chefs working in this restaurant are beyond talented.
We couldn’t decide what to have, so we went with the banquet, and it did not disappoint! Every detail, every flavour, every texture and every smell was incredible. This was hands down the best meal and the best service I have ever had. The world is blessed to have people producing food and restaurants this great. We loved every single bite and could not recommend Smith & Daughters more. I am so glad I finally got to visit, truly a meal I will never forget.

Great experience to enjoy what Smith and Daughters have to offer.

Jess at the Bar was fantastic, however, the service from others was a bit slap-stick and could be improved.

All in all, great venue for a casual meal out.
