Very nosy. It was had to talk above all the other conversations. Acoustics was bad. Everyone in large room. Out of 5 restaurants we ate at this was the least liked. Food was good but not great.

We were immediately seated and all of the staff were extremely friendly. However, the decor was really outdated for the quality of my “nice steakhouse meal.” I counted 5 different types of mismatched lighting fixtures just in my area. We were there for restaurant week and it seems as soon as our waiter knew we wouldn’t be high rollers his level of enthusiasm went way down. In fact we never saw him until it was time clear the table. He didn’t even show up to refill our glasses or ask if we wanted another drink. After our meal was over he was super friendly again. I won’t be back. For the level of atmosphere and quality of food, I’ll go to J. Alexander’s next time.

The filet melted in my mouth. It was perfect. Their food is always outstanding. Wedge of lettuce was very good with little chunks of thick bacon. For desert I had their coconut cake with real whip cream. I can't wait to go back!

We are always pleased with the experience at S&W. This experience wasn’t like our typical as the food took quite a bit to deliver and our waiter was not as attentive as we would have hoped. I would highly recommend for a nice dinner out.

1. Food is very good.
2. Service is ordinary. I had to wave my arms to track down a server for a second glass of wine to finish my meal!
3. This restaurant attracts men who like to bloviate. Having experienced this hard-to-solve problem more than once, I won't be back.

We had the pleasure of dining there last night. We had a wonderful server Christian. He was very helpful in our ordering and just a great personable server. Management also very nice. Our steak meals all were wonderful. The filet steak was cooked perfectly and our friend loved her Waygu steak. Great smashed potatoes and creamed corn sides. Wonderful beet salad and a crab cake loaded with crab no filler. Now the only problem is we are from Cleveland and we do not have a Smith and Wollensky there. Our restaurant and theater are booming. Think of coming to somewhere in the Cleveland area or suburbs.
We may need to drive to Granville from Cleveland to eat there again.

Service was very much off the mark. We were not happy with this experience. We frequent this location a great deal and it was substantially not up to par with even lesser restaurants in the area.

Went for lunch on Father's Day. The place was nearly empty, and the staff was definitely off their game. Our server was friendly and took our order, promising to space things out. Then, after a long-ish delay the salads and appetizer appeared together at once. The server intercepted the runner, and sent the appetizer back to the kitchen for awhile until the salads were finished. After the appetizer was finished and cleared, we waited about half an hour for our entrees (burgers) which were overcooked and dry. We had asked for medium and these were on the far side of well done. At this point we just ate them, since they were edible, rather than fuss with the staff and wait another half hour for replacements.

S&W is usually our go-to for an outstanding meal, but this time around it was an expensive disappointment, especially since we know they usually do so much better.

There for lunch. Quieter and less crowded. Service was excellent. Cobb salad was large and wonderful! Enough as an entree or for 3 people to split (note-it's only available at lunch). Lump crab cocktail was also terrific.

Dinner on a Tuesday night with business contractor. It was late at 8:30pm, and the restaurant was quiet. We were seated inside but when balance of party arrived we asked to sit outside as the weather was very nice. Our server didn’t appear to mind and gave us a great table. No other guest around us, but we still had very good and attentive service. Food was well paced and delicious. Wine recommendation was good. I ordered the Oscar Filet with crab meat, asparagus and hollendaise. It was dark in our area, so I didn’t see my food very well — did see a mess of cut asparagus around the steak and covered in sauce. Maybe that is how it’s supposed to be served, but I thought it could have been “neater” presentation, did taste good tho. It had been 8 years since I last dined at S&W, and it was still a very good place for a special meal.

First server needed dismissed due to not listening and talking over me. Replacement was just fine. Food was most disappointing considering how many times we have dined at this location. Hope this was a one time miss, however the experience costs the restaurant some future business as we will consider others first.
