Smith and Wollensky used to be our go to place. We've been going since right before getting engaged to the Boston castle before they closed. We then started going to Wellesley. Unfortunately, it seems things have changed. I was very excited to see the reintroduction of the hash browns side to the menu. I was very sad to receive a little patty of hash browns. The portion used to be bigger. Same for the onion rings side. Now, I understand that prices have gone up for raw supplies, but for the price of the meal, I guess I expected more.

When you’re paying $60+ for a steak, it should be fantastic. That’s not what we had. The filet was fine—a little north of medium rare, and a dash saltier than I prefer. The Wagyu was much better—really worth the $100 price tag and perfectly cooked. The sides were “meh.” Really nothing worth remembering (we ordered 4, so I feel like I got a good sampling), under-seasoned, and generally uninspired. I know that the steak is supposed to be the star of the show, but if the steak is worth $60, it should be served with whipped potatoes that are worth eating with it. The fries were especially disappointing—I had french fries at a greasy spoon diner that day for lunch, and I swear I couldn’t tell the difference—soggy and under-seasoned. I went in expecting the price tag, I just expected that the quality I got would be far beyond the other local steak houses in central MA, but it was not.

Attractive indoor, outdoor, and bar seating. Our hostess was gracious and welcoming. Our server, Zuzu, was extremely pleasant, attentive, and able to answer all our questions without hesitation. Food portions and quality were excellent. Great location with ample parking. We will be back.
Area of opportunity is to upgrade the interior. Decor and lighting are dated and for the price point, surrounding should be a bit more upscale.

I wish I could say it was out of this world and worth the spend but it absolutely was not. The service was attentive but a little slow but the food was not at all noteworthy. The dessert was quite good (large chocolate chip cookie in skillet)

We had a wonderful last night of summer dining al fresco. The martinis were glorious the meatball appetizer super tasty and the rolls were a perfect accompaniment to ensure we could sop up all the yummy sauce. The roasted cauliflower and hollandaise sauce was cooked perfectly al dente. And, to finish the night we indulged in a giant wedge of their infamous chocolate cake—it was beyond decadent. Our server Karen really made the night extra special for us. We will be back soon.

the menu has plenty of options and everything we have ordered has been delicious. I had baked oysters for an appetizer and the oysters were cooked perfectly, tender and luscious. For my entree, I had Wagyu steak that melted in my mouth, accompanied by roasted potatoes, asparagus and corn. The cocktails and wine were really good also. The service is always excellent, especially ZuZu and Sophia.

The food was awful and the drinks were not good. The steak was too tough Tibet’s and the fish was no where near fresh. Very disappointing. We were told that the kitchen was chaos with out a real chef. I’d be very surprised if this restaurant stays in business with so many great options.

We had a very enjoyable dinner at Smith and Wollensky.
We ate outdoors in the back. S&W has fenced off the back area with planters umbrellas, outdoor lighting and even heaters. A beautiful transformation.

The food was excellent. We had beef and lamb. Superb quality meat. The side dishes were delicious as well.

Our waiter, Mickey, was friendly, attentive, humorous but not overbearing. The manager, Devin, stopped by and was also welcoming and wanted to be sure our dinner was a great experience.

Highly recommeded. The menu is available on-line, so you can check to see if it is to your liking.

We came for a late lunch and the restaurant was almost empty. After receiving appetizers we sat with dirty plates in front of us while the waiter, manager and hostess were standing on the side laughing and looking at their phones. Neither food, ambience or service are close to Capital Grille. Very disappointed considering we spend over $500 with gratuity for a group of 4

Just not a good night. Long lapses in service. We were there an hour and a half before we received bread. Missed some items that were ordered. Lots of managers but no one stopped by to check in. Steak severely undercooked but I couldn’t bare the thought of sending it back as we had already been there so long. I was willing to cut some slack due to staffing crisis but this was beyond a little slow, and at these prices, I expected better. I’d recommend you take less patrons and service more appropriately.

we arrived for our 6:45 table for 4 reservation a few minutes early. it was not very busy. we asked to sit at a high top in the bar where 1 table was occupied and were told no without an explanation. The host then seated us at the worst possible table right next to waiter station and door to kitchen. he was not friendly.
The food was overpriced, not cooked properly to our instructions, and memorable only in that so unremarkable. both pieces of prime rib were severely undercooked. Medium came medium rare minus, and medium rare was RARE-mooing rare. One would think they'd be able to get that right in a steak house. Oh and one of us wanted chicken which they were out of at 7:15-really!! She had salmon instead again unremarkable at best.At their very high menu prices, more is expected. We won't go there again.
