Beautiful waterfront room with big windows. Great genuinely friendly service. Absolutely amazing steak. A splurge, but not overpriced. Very reasonable parking directly adjacent to the restaurant.

Our server wasn't the best. He messed up our appetizer and at the end, one of the kitchen staff gave us an extra cake that we were about to indulge but the server just took it away without asking us any questions. I felt like he rushed us and didn't attend to us.

We came for Dine Out week so the food was ordered from that menu. Had steak tips, medium rare, and they were alright. The truffle potatoes were the highlight of the show. We had the salmon as well as mac and cheese and cauliflower. Everything was mediocre. Drinks were good.

Overall, pricey dinner. Not worth the hype in my opinion but glad I tried.

The ambiance was wonderful, the drinks excellent, and the service superb. And while the filet mignon was fabulous, I think it would have been nice to just add something else to the plate...a couple of sprigs of asparagus, a tablespoon of mashed potatoes, maybe a simple greens mix. The presentation was strikingly bare and unappealing (despite the beef being absolutely delicious). If not for that, I would have given my experience 5 stars.

My meal for restaurant week didnot include a vegetable on the fixed menu

Fans in NYC and this was fine. We were seated off to the side outside of the main dining area so the ambiance wasn’t great. They were generous in comping the dessert as it was a Bday dinner.

Traditional birthday lunch at a favorite spot. Good food and great service. Had the Tenderloin sandwich....awesome, I love Pea soup and S&W has the best!!! My friend got the Wollensky Salad with steak tips...the best. And, our birthday cocktails were so prefect, we had to have 2!!! I usually don’t frequent chain restaurants, but S&W is an exception!

Was seating as a table in a high traffic area. Had the bus cart hit may chair a few times. Asked to be relocated. Service suffered from then on. Took several minutes for drinks. Sides with dinner we cold and very off putting. Swinging tomahawk while visually satisfying was very underwhelming. Cooked incorrectly and flavor was at a minimum. Ordered wine with the steak. Got it while eating the last piece. Never had a bad experience here before. And for a slow Sunday night. Very disappointed.

Old napkin on the floor at our feet when we sat , at the bar waiting for our table, the bar was full of old glasses and was never cleared, the sides came quite a bit before our main entree, steak, and steak was mediocre.

Long delay in getting menus water bread had to be requested no one took our drink order. Food came out cold. Jumbo shrimp cocktail was not at all jumbo and was tasteless. Our waitress tried to make up for the problems but she was also tending bar and trying to put out all the other “fires” as we weren’t the only ones having problems. She was very generous in taking off the cold meal and treating us to dessert but when you pay $60 for a steak you expect more than that.

Been a devoted Smith customer since I held my wedding reception at their Boston Armory location in 2016. I don’t know, I have visited the other locations several times since the ‘castle’ closed and something is just missing. (No it’s NOT just the awesome castle) When your dining bill chimes in at $290 for two people) you just kind of expect a certain level of quality and service. The $63 steak was,,, lacking in all respects, but I sure got ‘up charged’ for asking for the Kona / Coca rub. The most awesome Wild mushrooms ever, gone off the menu. The chef’s passion for second to none amazing eats I have come to know has somehow disappeared into quantity vs quality. The wait staff was no less pushy and lacking passion, pretty much forcing my wife and I to finish up with the current course and move on the the next. Wife and I still giggling about the weeks events enjoying a SINGLE night without children, the waitress interrupts us, and are all of a sudden being handed the bill with doggy bags when we have to interrupt the waitress that we are not through, we wanted a coffee and the iconic cake. An annoyed waitress rolls her eyes and brings the dessert menu. FYI dear waitress, this isn’t Denny’s, or IHOP, I pay the hosting staff handsomely for a night out with my wifey. (It’s so rare that we can do such a thing,,, you lost $150 off your tip for rushing us. (I’ve given $250 tips at the castle because they welcomed us, they let us enjoy our time and the food without trying to herd us out the door)) The passion and love of what they do was lost, Smith has now fallen way behind Capital, Abbe, Chops, even Ruths,,,, if can believe it. The 9’s crew doesn’t rush us and I don’t even show up in a suit and tie,,, they don’t rush us,,, period. Sorry Smith crew and Mgt, I just don’t see myself or any further recommendation for this place. The service attitude Sux, which seems to filter down into the quality of culinary fair. Smith at the Wharf is God awful for service and food.

The dinner itself was amazing! We got the tomahawk steak served table side. The only downfall was being sat next to a large (noisy) table. There were other tables available, so not sure why we were put there. Nevertheless, was still an enjoyable experience and we will be back! (Just will reserve a more private table)

Service was great, the waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and was not afraid to give his recommendations. The steak was cooked the way we wanted it. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone that loves steak.
