Very rude gentleman in charge of check-in for the outside tables.
Unacceptable to be mistreated in a place like this.
The restaurant should train there employees better.

My NY strip steak and my wifes Filet were cooked to perfection. Shame they charge full fare for a side of sauteed onions as it was not on the menu. Once in a while, places ought to just throw in something especially when we were spending $250 for the two of us, whether onions or perhaps two chocolates afterwards.

Nothing but excuses about kitchen issue. A real shame with such beautiful ambiance nyc restaurant is one hundred times better. Manager tried to make it better experience They should have comp the whole check

Best place on SoBe for steaks. Great food and great service. None of the typical SoBe snobbery or attempts at building checks. Also, great views on Sundays of cruise ships leaving Miami.

Honestly, the place is beautiful and have very nice views but I think it’s too expensive for the food quantity and presentation. Also I had requested a table at the terrace facing the water and they gave me one at the second floor facing the water but inside and far away.

There service was horrendous. Waited an hour and a half for our food. I witnessed my parties food being serviced to another table they realized it and put it back on the servers table and put the lid back on and brought it to our table. I told the server that I observed my food being served to the other table and he quickly avoided the comment. 3 out of 4 steaks were cold. I told them it was unacceptable for the food to be cold on top of the fact that it was served to another person whom touched it. They replaced all but one of our dishes and then they mixed who's plate was whos mind you it's now been 2.5 hours. The check comes out not apology or anything I will never return they are to comfortable with the brand they have established that they now lack quality and customer service. Will NEVER return.

Ps my friend happened to be dining there as well I asked how her experience was she stated the customer service was terrible and her food was also cold.

This location has an amazing view of the cruise and cargo ships launching from port and of the city skyline. The problem is I think they know it and worry about service less than other Smith & Wollensky's I've visited. If prices were lower I would let this slide a bit, but when one is paying such a premium for food many other restaurants can provide then I would expect the service to be much better. Servers should have a strong understanding of the English language, for example. Servers should check in with you from time to time to see if you need anything. That said, the food and drinks were the normal level of high quality I've had at other S&W Steakhouses in other locations (namely, Chicago and Las Vegas) so maybe I just had a server having an off night.

The Cobb salad was not good, I’m not picky but the chicken was over cooked and the salad was very bland. The lobster sandwich was dull and not up to par. However the view was top notch go for the view and some drinks not the lunch menu. I didn’t have the steak so I wouldn’t know about that part

Went on valentines day, expected it to be packed but not as packed as it was when arrived. I don't see why a popular restaurant like this would book themselves over capacity. Reservation was at 9, didn't get seated until 930, the food didn't come out until 12 am.

We went on Valentines Day probably should have just ordered pizza. The food was very delicious however they had the tables so packed in there you could barely move. Our server bless his heart was probably 70-80 years old and good for him for working however was super slow. It
Took quite a while to get our food that was very tasty after we finally got it. My advice don’t go on a night that would typically be crowded. As we left there was a line out of the door waiting for a table.

Overall, very disappointing. I’ve eaten multiple times at Smith and Wollensky and I was not expecting it to be the way it was. Our reservation was at 8:30pm and we didn’t sit down until 9:20pm since we spent 40 minutes waiting for the valet. Once inside the we asked for a wine list and the menu came empty. Our Caesar salad appetizer came reasonably quick but after that we waited 1 hour and 30 minutes for our main course. We ended up leaving the restaurant at 11:30. Such a disappointing experience.

We arrived and were seated on time. It took 15 minutes to get a menu. After we placed our order we had to call a manager because after 45 minutes of waiting we had not been served our salad. Then we waited another 45 minutes before we called the manager again to see when we were going to be served our $170.00 steak. The steak was supposed to be carved at table side, but because they jammed a bunch of tables next to each other the carving card was not able to get to our table. Needless to say we were very disappointed.

Had a reservation still had to wait almost 30 minutes for a table...then our table was one of those shaky, uneven tables. As I sat there and sawed into my overcooked steak, the drinks spilled all over our table. You'd think they would have something nicer than picnic tables with table cloths over them for their high end customers.

Food was very sub par. Service was also sub par. We saw them bringing parties to dirty tables then making them stand there as they cleaned and re set the tables for them.

Walked into the parking lot where someone was confronting the valet for leaving his windows down and keys in the car while it rained.

Avoid.

Our stakes were not properly cooked. The service was poor. We were with no water many times. Had to repeat the order several times. They were trying to push you out. I know it was Valentines but for the price that we paid I expected superb. I have had better food at chain steak houses
