Wait staff was very helpful and willing to go the extra mile to make my anniversary very special. I can say enough about the food. Steaks were prepared perfect.. I look forward to returning in the future.

Ordered two burgers - one med rate and one medium - both came out med well/well. Only sent back one burger but you’d think at a steak house they’d cook a burger correctly. Returned burger took 20 minutes to remake

Over all pretty good experience. However I ordered the “signature” bone I dry aged rib eye 28+ ounce medium rare and it was overcooked. It was medium at best. I expect pretty perfect for such an expensive steak. Unfortunately I was too hungry to wait for another. The filet my girlfriend got was cooked perfect, and it was her birthday, so I took the loss. Only other complaint is that I said I wanted to surprise her with a birthday dessert when she went to the bathroom. I ordered and she had no idea, but then waiter brought two dessert plates and spoons over to the table before the cake even came out. Kind of ruined the surprise.

I went here with my sister for a special celebration and had a really great time. The food was good and view was amazing cause we were there when the sun set. But what really made our night special was our waitress Claudia. She was so attentive and so kind. One of the main reasons I would go back is because of her amazing service.

Service was impeccable. Oysters and cocktails was outstanding. Ordered the 28oz Bone-in-Ribeye medium rare, which we have had before. It was not cooked properly. Manager offered to replace it. We just brought it home. Not a big deal. We just wanted to support them. It’s sad to see all the closed restaurants and Very few people out. They are obviously working on a smaller staff but you wouldn’t have know it. Please continue to support these restaurants as we work our way thru the Pandemic and Over Tip no matter what!!!

Normally a good bet. However we went recently and the steaks were overdone and the seasoning off. They still need to get back into their pre-covid groove.

Our server Adam was wonderful! The food was expertly prepared and the patio was such a dream to sit on. My fiancé got the Cajun stack medium and it was cooked to perfection. My strip tease was delicious with a to die for red wine demi sauce that you could put on anything. We both shared the half fried south African lobster which was a showstopper. Well done S&W Atlantic Wharf! Great Date spot!

With the COVID issues the wait staff should be able to wear more appropriate attire for 90 degree weather especially with masks and gloves.

Beautiful outdoor seating overlooking the waterfront. Food was fantastic as usual - S&W has some of the very best steaks in Boston and fabulous sides too like truffle Mac & cheese. But what really made this meal special was the excellent service from our server Julian. He took great care of us and made the occasion memorable.

Our experience started off well. Was weird to have our server say he is an Irish Man and can get us wasted. We ordered our meals and food came fairly quick. Once the food was dropped at our table we didn’t see our server for a good 15 minutes after we were finished eating. A younger couple were seated at the table next to us and I felt so bad for them. They were seated for 10 minutes before anyone even noticed they were there. We noticed they were doing a staff wine tasting in one of the private rooms which is why we couldn’t find our server. Finally he came to the table and I gave him my card to run so we could leave. Took him another 7 minutes to bring the slip to sing after we had to remind him that he already has the card. Management needs to step it up.

The food and the service was over the top. My friend had never been to a Smith & Wollensky. She was very impressed and wants to go again.

Great from start to finish. Loved the patio, wish you could socially distance seats at the bar for drinks! But fantastic experience.
