The chef was so thoughtful and made the experience really worth my while when part of my order could not be fulfilled. The waitress was amazing and courteous. I was very pleased.

We decided to get our fix of S&W and made a reservation for a late lunch, and as always we were not disappointed. We were seated at our table by Lindsey, who always has a smile for the customers. We were waited on by Adam who was attentive and ensured that our glasses were full and our meals were prepared as we requested. Adam is very friendly and made us very comfortable with all the COVID restrictions. As always the management staff checked on us to see if we were happy with the service and meal, Carl is very pleasant and made our lunch experience wonderful. My wife and I both ordered the delicious Wollensky Salad and added a perfectly prepared protein of chicken and salmon. We highly recommend S&W especially this location.

I’m one who doesn’t usually write reviews but I felt the need to share my dining experience for Thursday 10-22-20.

First of all, I was visiting my daughter who attends grad school in Boston and I wanted to treat her to a special steak dinner as it’s one of her favorites. Being from the west coast and one who has frequently dined at other steakhouse establishments I decided on Smith & Wolensky after reading the customer reviews and also calling them before I made the reservation.

Upon arrival we were seated on time and escorted to our table.

The initial greeting by our waitress was very cold and there was no personal connection at all. We ordered some wine and then decided to order salads and appetizers before our main meal. Upon ordering our salads and within 2 minutes they were brought to our table and immediately thereafter our appetizers of shrimp and crab cake were upon us as well. Needless to say, my daughter and I looked at each other and simultaneously stated “that was fast so let’s wait to order our main dish.” Do you think we felt rushed? We sure did. After finishing our salads and appetizers we decided to order our main dish, thinking it would take some time to prepare. We were wrong again as our steaks were brought to our table within 10 minutes. My immediate response to my daughter...”the microwave was sure getting a workout!” In all honesty, the steaks were lukewarm, tasteless and tough, and know where near the quality of filet mignon. that I have tasted at other national steakhouse establishments.

The biggest disappointment of the evening was my special time with my daughter was regretable since the quality of the food and service was so sub par. We even discussed going out to the “other” steakhouse before I had to leave town just to make up for the horrible dining experience.

As I indicated, I’m not local to the Boston area and maybe we caught the staff on a bad night.I will say it was the absolute worst dining experience I have ever had

We went early for a retirement get together. Not a place to go for appetizers only. You need to go for a full meal. Appetizers are not shareable except for the seafood tower. The waiter messed up our order and we ended up getting something we ordered. We paid for it as well... hostess was extremely accommodating.

Food and experience was very good. Wanted to order one more round of drinks but didn’t get to. The only thing I would add is heat lamps outside since it’s cold. And the server to come back a little more often. The filet, espresso martini and the skillet cookie where excellent. Highly recommend trying this location for date or nice night out.

I made the reservation for my mother’s 94 birthday and we were treated like royalty. Our waitress Claudia was very accommodating and attentive to our needs and made sure our experience was beyond compare. We enjoyed Shrimp Cocktail and Crab Cakes for starters which were delicious the shrimp were large and the crab cake had a minimum amount of breading. The Wollensky Salad is enough for four people and the bacon lardons are to live for. Each of our filets were cooked and seasoned to perfection. The manager Carl repeatedly inquired to our satisfaction and made the celebration meal unforgettable by sending the table slices of chocolate and coconut cake for a birthday celebration. We definitely will be back for lunch and dinner and any other celebration we can think of.

It was a beautiful day to sit outside for a leisurely lunch. The server could not have been any nicer and accommodating. The crab cake and the salads were outstanding. I almost forget the filet. The new smores desert was luscious. Keep it on the menu.

Everything was amazing although my steak was slightly over cooked for my liking however it was corrected and I couldn’t have been more pleased. The hostess was pleasant, the bartender who was my server was attentive and had a great personality. The manager Catherine was incredible, and I mean it. Thank you all for a great experience and I can’t wait to come back for more!

As 1st time customers to Smith & Wollensky we enjoyed a great evening, and were extremely impressed with the service from the hostess, to our server Tamara, and the manager Carl. Tamara was very attentive and helpful to explained the menu from the appetizers to dessert. Tamara's recommendations for dinner and wine were spot on. The manager Carl visited our table a few times and made us feel right at home. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and exactly how we had ordered them. Thank you for a great night out and hope to come back soon.

Not sure what the problem was today, as this was the third visit over the past couple of months. Service was poor (we thought our server had left for the day), food took forever to arrive, was overcooked (not normally a problem), and the portions were comically small as if they'd run out of potatoes in the kitchen so everyone got a tablespoon. Had this been my first visit, I would not return. As it is, this will be the last visit for a while until whatever is going on gets sorted.
