Excellent!! I went with 8 friends and had a great time. We brought our table forward by half an hour and that wasn't a problem at all, from the gent on the door that welcomed us through to our server, everyone was absolutely lovely, very welcoming, seriously knowledgeable and the entire experience was fantastic. The setting is fantastic, absolutely beautiful and the food is GREAT, I regularly eat in Hawksmoor etc and without doubt will be coming back to Smith & Wollensky as its as good (better even) than anything else I've experienced.

Booked a table for 4 here for lunch on Saturday. We all chose the brunch set menu not wishing to pay £80 for a steak!! Menu was good with lots of choice, even a steak if so desired albeit at £15 extra to set price. We all thought £22 set price for two courses was very good value. We shared two bottles of good wine which was reasonably priced.
All in all a very pleasant lunch, and we were not rushed from our table.

Very expensive but we knew that before we went. Didn’t like the waiter giving us recommendations because everything he suggested was the most expensive. I.E £90 for steak that would be enough for two, but saying what we had was good meat

Great place - staff are friendly and have time to talk .
Food on the expensive side but the staff and location probably warrant this

Food was delicious but service was very slow, it took 30 min for someone to bring us the bill and another 20 min until someone brought the card machine, after we ask for it.

Dinner with a couple of friends at this restaurant is knock-out, steak was great and i can highly reccoment the tuna carpacio.

It is a large elegant restaurant and certainly fitted the bill..

We enjoyed a fabulous family meal during a short break to London. Having dined in other Smith & Wollensky restaurants everyone in our party agreed that this was a step up in terms of food and flavours.

Our second time for lunch. My wife and I had a delicious lunch. She added horse radish to her meal—I did not. We shared the steak, salad, spinach and hash-browns and wine. Three hours later she was running a fever, head ache and throwing it all up—I wasn’t. What was a delicious lunch became a forgetful evening. S&W, love you but you let me down—you need to do better!!

Nice bustling restaurant, waiting staff all very well presented. We were greeted by a lovely waiter who arrived with complimentary sparkling wine from our hotel, who had suggested the restaurant. We asked to sample the pea soup. It seemed to be a difficult request. A manger had to be asked and eventually a sample arrived. We both disliked this. We decided to skip starters and order mains. I had the cod and my plus 1 had lamb. We got 3 sides. From sitting down to receiving our mains was 1 hours. This was way too long. All our sides were only warm and simply too cool for eating. My cod was nice. The lamb was dry. We advised the waiter. He has said that he had been so busy that he was unable to collect out food and said he would send his manger over. The manager handled the matter very well. She clearly understood that our experience had not been acceptable. Overall, I think this is a nice restaurant. I loved the decor and really thought the staff were excellent. However, I am not convinced based on the food we ordered and for me if the food isn’t hot, when it’s meant to be, then my meal has be ruined. Maybe I’ll try another time and give the benefit of the doubt.

Extremely loud in basement, difficult to talk. Caused by many people, loud music and loud children. Service was ok, after false start. Food excellent.

This was a poor excuse for the Smith & Wollensky I know from New York. The steak I was served was at best a Choice Grade and not the Prime Grade advertised. You would have thought that the server would have said something when he noticed I Didn't eat the meat. Skip this place if you are expecting a quality steak.

Food was great but service was lacking. At no point were we asked if everything was to our liking (other than when a drink was taken over to our table). We had to ask for our water bottles to be replaced repeatedly. The gesture of birthday cakes for our guests was appreciated but again, this had to be followed up by members of our party twice. Overall, delicious food but disappointing service.

It was my second dining experience at this restaurant. Food is excellent both times. Service is not as attentive as it should be for this level of restaurants in my opinion.
I still recommend it as the food and ambience are superb.

A heaven for carnivores. With their own specialist butcher in house, the restaurants takes the 'no condiments needed' to a new level. Our red wine jus and herb butter went back unused, as the taste of steak and cajun fries were heavenly on their own. We have to come back for the interesting dessert choices. Service was welcoming and professional, cocktails were excellent, and the wine list has great choices.

We couldn't figure out why the noise levels were so high as the restaurant was less than 20% full on a Sunday after 4pm. They should look into a bit more ceiling-soundproofing.
Steaks - are all lovely, just as you'd imagine for a New York joint.
They need a larger selection of LIGHT starters, as you don't need to eat very much before a huge steak with sides. However, you DO need to eat a starter with your aperitifs, as the wait is fairly long for the mains. Lovely bread bu the way.

Sunday brunch with my daughters, really enjoyed the experience, spacious seating arrangements, exceptional service, great food. They also took my opentable cheque, which other opentable restaurants refused. What more can one ask from a restaurant? Make children get off their phones and talk to their dad?

No complaints about the food, it was outstanding. Not cheap, but worth it. However service was somewhat questionable. A waiter in particular was rude and very unprofessional, to say the least. One would expect a whole other level of professionalism, given the price paid.

This is the best restaurant for sirloin steak we have ever eaten in.
We cannot praise it enough!
Everything else we have had on the menu is great too.
If I had to be picky, need some more vegetarian dishes.
