My wife and I were treated to a complimentary glass of champagne to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary which was a very nice surprise. The fillet mignon was the best we have ever had.

Sat on the patio, there were heaters and it was a comfortable atmosphere with plenty of space btw tables. We were celebrating and splurged. Although it was very expensive, it was absolutely delicious. I had a T- bone steak and my daughter had Cajun rubbed sirloin. The best meat I’ve ever tasted. Cooked perfectly and large portions.
Also had a cocktail and an unbelievable and gigantic slice of chocolate cake. Service was a little slow but overall this was an amazing dinner that I’d highly recommend.

Food was great, under seasoned in my opinion but I love salt:) I am a chef by trade and service is the most important part of the experience for me. I understand more than most that the labor shortage is devastating restaurants currently but this was not the issue in this case. Our serving staff was lacking personality and attention to customers. Table full of empty drinks and staff walking back and forth past our table without even glancing to see us trying to get their attention. Table of 6, $606 tab and we tipped $120 even though service was severely lacking.

Smith and Wollensky always out-do themselves! My wife and I enjoyed an anniversary dinner, along with our young son. Smith and Wollensky both celebrated our anniversary with a complimentary Prosecco toast as well as made accommodations to proved our four year old with French fries and chicken fingers from the outdoor bar. The attentiveness of our waiter was great and the food was perfection. This isn’t our first time to this location and it certainly will not be the last!

Our server was fantastic. Indeed, when I unexpectedly had to take an emergency phone call and was away from the table for a few minutes, he immediately came to the table when I returned, brought my soup back to the kitchen and returned promptly with a new piping hot bowl. I truly appreciated the thought, kindness and superior service. Moreover, the split pea soup was delicious.

The food and service were great, but it was over priced. I can get just as good of an experience at Ruth's Chris or Capital Grille for much less expense. Also, the steaks were in sizes that were too large for me. I like a NY strip, but I couldn't get it because it came only in 16 oz. and 19 oz sizes.

Everything was perfect, or better, was made perfect. The kitchen ran out of bread, no big deal you say, that’s surely not what you came for. Well it took about an hour for my dinner, so having the delicious warm bread to nibble on is part of the high end experience. The server agreed and managed to find one more loaf even after I was almost finished with my meal. Adam knew that it was important to me and he tried. Good job, Adam, you have the spirit!

It’s not our first time here but the place feels very different now. Food is still good but none of the staff seem happy when we visited, our waiter wasn’t attentive at all. We asked for something and it will either be a long wait or not getting it at all. The experience was super disappointing and will not go back again.

Food and service weren’t bad, but my experience was totally ruined by a couple of careless servers accidentally crashing into each other which led to me being completely (eyes included) splattered with another table’s guests’ left over drinking water. Eewwww.

My wife and I have been living in the Seaport District for almost 4 years now and we have visited all the top restaurants in the area. Smith & Wollensky is now in my top 5 list, a true 5-star dining experience. My wife and I went there for our 27th wedding anniversary and everything couldn't have gone better.

Our server, Nathan B. was amazing and extremely friendly. We got the Wollensky salad and it's a must if you visit, potato croutons for the win. I got the coffee and cocoa rubbed filet and it was cooked perfectly, providing that melt-in-the-mouth experience. My wife got the twin filets and they were also perfectly prepared. We shared the creamed spinach and an order of onion rings. My wife couldn't stop talking about the spinach, yes, the spinach and the onion rings were not greasy at all.

We rounded out our meal with the gigantic chocolate cake, which is extremely gigantic. We ended up taking it home and was a perfect slice of decadent chocolate cake. Great job to everyone at S&W and appreciate the extras they did for our anniversary. We will be back. Bravo.
