They brought our salads out and dropped on all over my friends. They did comp the salads but a manager never came over.
A great place for Brunch with a laid back ambience and good food. Came here because I know a server there from another fine restaurant and I was not disappointed. Brunch was good and we had the Hanger Arsada and Steak and Eggs Tacos which were really done well. The bottomless Mimosa was a great bargain and the selection of Single Malt and other Spirits was great to listen to the live Jazz after eating. My compliments to Sheila, Alex and Hugo for a wonderful experience.
Flavor profiles were perfect. Wouldn't change a thing. Management and servers are the utmost professionals and care about the comfort and taste of their guests. Highly recommend. We are definitely returning soon.
Overall, I really enjoyed my experience at the restaurant. I went for brunch and ordered the french toast which were tasty! Waitress made sure to check up on us to ensure our food and drinks were alright.
Two areas of improvement though:
1: The side order of sausage is overpriced. I paid 5 extra dollars just to get one link of sausage. And they tried to slice it in half to make it seem like I was getting more than I actually was. Any other place I would’ve gotten at least 2-3 links for 5 dollars.
2: Fix the wobbly tables. Its annoying going to restaurants where it is not leveled. Every time I made a move with my fork or knife, the table reacted.
The salmon filet was incredible and their cocktail list is outstanding. Find casual night with great grub!
Went there for Valentines Day. The food was amazing! The service was prompt!
This was our first time at Smith Commons. We needed a romantic night out and that's what we received. There was a prix fix 3 course dinner with dessert for $40. We left satisfied
Great! Except they had a ridiculously small steak on their special Valentine's Day menu. The truffle Mac n cheese and the burger were delicious!
Valentine’s Day Special 3 course price fixed dinner. Chef prepared an amazing meal both visually and taste wise. We’ve eaten at Smith Commons several times and the food has always been excellent.
Smith Commons is a great neighborhood bar & restaurant! Located on the H Street, NE corridor in DC, easily accessible by streetcar from Union Station. Delicious food, normal sized portions. Reasonable prices. Pleasant staff. Will definitely visit again. Recommended!
I hardly leave reviews but this place is deserving. Went in for Brunch and they exceeded my expectations. Was so very pleased from entry to leaving.
Went here to celebrate a friend's birthday. As soon as we walked in the door, we were unsure of whether to go up the stairs located in front of us or step to the right and go in the bar area. We did the latter, and finally saw the hostess stand. The hostess was nice and seated us. Hugo waited on us and was very nice. Very much so a people person. Food was great. I had the duck breast, my friends had a salad, and the lamb chops. No one complained about the food.
Food was excellent but service was totally indifferent. waiting almost 30 min after ordering to get a charcuterie plate, and had to ask why it was taking so long after 20 min. Waiter was really seen. Seems to be too few wait staff. Menu was decent but not overwhelming.
My son and I had a wonderful time, the hostess was amazing and we will definitely be making Smith Commons a weekend habit.
Nice place with friendly staff. Sundays they have live jazz - great if you like jazz, but hard to have a conversation with the people next to you. Went for brunch. Food was good, though portion sizes vary widely (chicken ciabatta sandwich is a hefty plate, but I suggest a side of hash browns for the smaller hangar asada or eggs Benedict).
The restaurant was very loud, service was poor, and the food was mediocre.
Is this place a restaurant or a bar? I was carded at the door when I thought I came for dinner. Paid $29 for lamb chops that were over cooked and covered in a sauce that was entirely too sweet. The guy who refilled our waters spilled water into one of our cocktails and didn’t even apologize or offer to get us a new drink. Overall, low class for a high price. I understand now why this place is on living social.
We were celebrating a friends birthday and we had an amazing time! Great food, great atmosphere, good service.
The food is good, but not super creative. The restaurant always seems drafty. Wait staff is exceptional.
The food was excellent. We did feel a little rushed, not sure if it was because it was Restsurant Week or what? Its a beautuful restaurant, just a bit noisy.
The only good thing about our service was the staff's friendliness. It took about 10 minutes to order our drinks then maybe another 10 minutes before being served. We ordered our entrees to find out what we ordered was not available anymore. Our appetizers were very good and the entrees were even better. Overall, even with the terrible service, we still had a great meal.
The food was very good, particularly the spare rib appetizer and the tacos, made with with short ribs. Good sized portions. We had those and shared an entree and it was plenty for my husband and myself. The happy hour discounts ave $2.00 for several different choices. People need to remember that this is also a sports bar and the noise of the 6 people watching football made talking difficult at our table.
A very young crowd, noisy, but decent value and food.
I liked the interior of the restaurant. We went for brunch and the menu selections were good and varied. The biscuits were interesting, not typical, and the gravy on them was tasty. I enjoyed the grits with the biscuits and gravy and my main dish. The wait staff was very attentive and our glasses were never empty which was nice. The food came out hot and was timed nicely between our appetizer of main course. They did not offer any type of desserts for brunch which was a little disappointing. Overall, I enjoyed my experience at Smith Commons.
OK food but much too noisy in order to be able to have a conversation.
The food was delicious and the drinks very good. I thought one of the appetizers we ordered; bbq ribs, were small. The ribs were supposed to be 1/2 rack but it only had 4 bones; I expected at least 6. We also ordered the spicy Asian wings - yummy. All of our entrees - the butter chicken!!!, scallops, Smith burger and moulard duck were delicious. Everyone loved their selection. Our drinks were equally as good. We had the street car, felicity, central high, and a mad Russian. It was a very nice evening.
Went for brunch. The challah French toast and the shrimp and grits were excellent. Very nice wait staff. The jazz music was nice but too loud at times.
Always a treat to dine @ Smith Commons! Our meal was excellent and the service fantastic. We came here after seeing a show at the Atlas (Mosaic), and plan to do so again and again!
Good food, good service and a good experience overall! Recommend trying it for sure!
Was there friday night, had a blast our server was great!
Good food. 1/2 price wine bottles on Wednesdays are cool. Service was pretty slow. Very kind people, but we were definitely forgotten about more than once.
I had the Lamb Crops and they were outstanding!!!
Love the atmosphere, great place to hangout with friends . The second level decor is really cute and quaint. Great for a photo-op or a really chill night. Third floor is usually reserved but 2nd level has great music and seating.
I made this reservation for my uncle and aunt to go out on a date (since they never make the time for it anymore because of multiple responsibilities and kids). They really enjoyed it, they loved the appetizers, the wine they had and the atmosphere. From what I saw when I dropped them off, the style is really hip, cool, modern and romantic, with a rustic touch to it. They liked the lamb chop.
The flatbread was horrible. Terribly undercooked. The dough was raw in middle. It tasted like an undercooked chef boyardee Pizza. The martini didn’t have olives, had to ask for them and they brought them in a separate cup. The music was far too loud. The rail drinks were strong, though. Mac and cheese was really good. Service was terribly slow.
Food was excellent and great atmosphere. The burger with the quail egg added was exceptional. Nice big homemade size burger and the homemade lemonade is the best I have ever had. Loved the fact that one of the owners was there helping out and being attentive to the guests.
Wonderful food that is beautifully served in a nice atmosphere. Love the ceviche!!
The food was absolutely amazing! I had the hanger steak with potatoes gratin, and I am still dreaming about them! My date shared some of her butter chicken, and it was equally delicious! The drinks were a little pricey, but all-in-all, I had a wonderful experience with amazing food.
Loved the restaurant and the sunday brunch! Big servings for nice price. My only issue with this restaurant is the PARKING! It's absolutely NO WHERE to park. Road around for 15mins looking for parking and had to park about 5 blocks down the street. Definitely took an uber back to my car afterwards.
