The salmon filet was incredible and their cocktail list is outstanding. Find casual night with great grub!
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.
