The overall experience was extremely disappointing. On vacation and with your restaurant being known for great steaks we thought we’d treat ourselves to a great meal. Boy we were utterly shocked. The service was terrible but that’s not the worst part. The food was average. I expect top notch for $60 steak. Other members received there food and mine was undercooked. Asked for medium well and medium rare. I had to send back. Everyone else are and I was still waiting for my meal. When you go out to dinner with your family it should be an experience eating together not eating alone. Would never recommend your restaurant. Very disappointing!!!

Service was ridiculously poor for a restaurant at this price level. Food was mediocre, there are much better steak houses in Boston. The outdoor space is really fantastic though, spacious, nice view and all.

It was quite windy and cold. They refused to turn on the heater (which was right next to me), because, they said, others might ask for their heaters on too. WHAT???
At that time there were TWO other tables only.
If I spend over $200 at a restaurant, at least I would expect that they don't leave me freezing when they can just turn the heater on.
We won't be back.

As you would expect with a high end steakhouse in Boston, the food was excellent. The outdoor patio seating made for perfect accommodations for our party of 8. The entire waitstaff was attentive and personable, a perfect combination in service. The Seaport District location was very much alive with long lines waiting to get inside nearby bars, yet our spot by the water was quiet. This restaurant is great for large groups, families, and date night. For the record, we all had various cuts of meat from the lamb to beef and we were left quite very satisfied with it all. The seafood tower for 6 was devoured by all and the scallops appetizer was amazing. The wine and cocktails were topped off with a bottle of port and chocolate cake. Bravo!

Host was rude and unaccommodating . Table was in a dark corner. Menu is limited. Not a single chicken dish. Waitress was very kind and nice but forgot to put in our orders. The steak of course was great but very overpriced. Just a very large bill at the end to sit in a dark corner with no ambiance and limited menu.

Great vibe for a Friday night! Unfortunately I found that there was a lot of children in the restaurant for 7pm, which is fine but they were noisy and had no manners. Side options are okay, steak was cooked, drinks were flowing. Not a terrible place just wouldn’t return.

Food and service was outstanding. First time here and was not disappointed. The confit bacon and angry shrimp appetizers were amazing. Filets were tender and flavorful and cooked perfectly. The truffled Mac and cheese and creamed corn sides were delicious. We also had the watermelon cocktail that was fabulous. No room left for dessert. Highly recommend!

Entree's were excellent, steak and fish cooked perfectly. Salads very very good. Sides were average, mac and cheese and potato cakes were bland. Seemed to be understaffed, drinks were not refreshed with meal as expected but otherwise it was acceptable. Do not sit near an aisle because food is delivered on plastic cafeteria carts racing thru the restaurant which was distracting.

It was my fiancé’s birthday and he loves steak so we came here. We both loved our steak and potatoes. The bread was also delicious. We enjoyed the virtual wine selector because it made choosing a wine easy and fun. Our waitress was very prompt and nice to talk to. There was a large group a few tables away for a birthday and they were pretty loud. The must have made 20 toasts in the time we were there. It was entertaining, but the couple next to us agreed it was a little loud and too much. Since it was my fiancé’s birthday they included dessert for free. We both had a great time and will be back. I recommend if you love steak. The seafood options also looked really good.

Excellent meal at S&W and excellent service by Shanna.

The food never disappoints and the waitstaff is exceptional.

We were greeted initially by the hostess, and when we asked for a booth she said, “I can do that!” I was very impressed with her positive attitude.

This was JUST what we needed. We were looking to kill some time before heading to a scheduled tour and Smith & Wollensky delivered. We got to sit outside (with a 9 year old) and enjoy some cocktails and cake. We told our server about our timeline and she kept us to it. It was a great way to enjoy the water-view, have delicious (although expensive) cocktails and spend time before our tour. Our server seemed genuinely friendly, which is not a trait we've often found in Boston. We went away deciding that we wanted to go back to Smith & Wollensky more often!
