Smith Flat House
The most amazing steak I’ve ever had! Beautifully charming atmosphere.
One of our go to places for sure. Food and service are always spot on!
Even with the weather cool it was still nice under the beautiful wooden overhang. Service and food was outstanding. Thanks
Great food! Great service!
Little awkward on arrival. Zero clue on if there was a hostess. We had to actually stop a server for help. They don’t have wine tastings as we assumed since it’s a winery. Food was decent, but a little over priced. Seating was spaced out and they cleaned well between patrons which is good. Facilities weren’t the cleanest.
Unfortunately the service was terrible. Waited despite our reservation then was not able to sit outside on the patio. We were taken inside but never got waited on:( we ended up leaving. Really disappointing.
meal was superb and service was attentive without being intrusive.
Dropped in for the weekend brunch on our weekly drive through Placerville. Pleased we found it. Very attractive and maintained venue. Patio closed given the weather, but can see the attractiveness of this area in the summer and fall. Menu very good as lunch options as well as the brunch items. Well prepared and all enjoyed. Service attentive and friendly. Will return.
Great Sunday Brunch menu
We had a great time on the patio. Scrumptious food and tasty local wine from Madrona.
Our Rib Eye steak was tasteless, Appetizer was the shrimp and that was chewy.
after expressing our disappointment we were offered dessert at no charge.
Our server was very good.
They would get 5 stars for better chairs. Hard to stay comfortable enjoying great food and music
My lamb shanks were delicious and highly recommended. My partner's rib eye wasn't to his standards which are quite high. The wine list was good, but I've seen better in the foothills.
I’ve been here before and I was quite good. I wanted outdoor dining and they offered it. The $10 glass of Cab was the highlight of the meal. I ordered the special - grilled salmon with a cucumber salad. Salmon was over cooked on a bed of unseasoned clumpy rice. The cucumber salad was a mess of mayonnaise cucumbers and dill. Service was sparse
Good but disappointed that the outside dining area wasn’t open on a beautiful fall afternoon.
Service was nice and friendly and food was good. Biggest down side for dinner time was being cold outside. They had a couple heaters, but not enough.
We went here over Halloween Weekend. They have a beautiful outdoor eating area complete with fireplaces, space heaters, and patio lighting. The food was excellent and cooked to perfection. We have been here one time about 4 years ago and were eager to get back! Our server Shelby helped us work through the menu and pair a great wine with our Filet as well as dessert.
I have recommended Smith Flat House to my parents, as well as friends and family who visit Placerville. If you want a wonderful dining experience perfect for a date night this is the spot to be!
This was our first time dining at Smith Flat House and we were so impressed! The ambiance and the food quality were fantastic! We will definitely be back!!!
Me and my husbands must go spots in the area. Everytime we come for the weekend we make sure one night we go to Smith Flat House. We are never disappointed.
First time here. Very impressed for Placerville. This restaurant would go over well in the Bay Area. Outside seating, friendly servers, great food and music to boot! The Asparagus bisque was an incredible way to start the meal. I had the salmon and my folks had the Ribeye and a Pasta Carbonara, all excellent. We finished with a Creme Brulee that truly was special. This will be on our return list!
I love sitting on the patio at night, it is beautiful there. Food is really good. It’s even more special when you go on Wednesday night and listen to the live music.
One of our favorite restaurants in Placerville!!!! Ate outside, they have heaters so it’s comfortable.
Amazing setting with great food. I thought they had the best outdoor seating Arrangement of any restaurant I have seen. The food is delicious but rich, so don’t order too much
Patio dining at Smith Flat House was superb! Great atmosphere, delicious food and they even had live music!
Excellent service. The atmosphere with the band playing was really good. Grounds were gorgeous. Surf and turf was excellent.
Excellent food, service, atmosphere. Had live music on a Friday night, not too loud, just right. Must have reservations right now.
I had the best pea soup I have ever had. And the live performance was lots of fun and very entertaining. And the staff was just top notch. Great time. :-)
Absolutely loved everything about this place, from food, to service, to location. A true gem in Placerville.
The food here is amazing with unique items such as scallops with pork belly which has many great flavors.
We visited the Smith Flat House for my wife's birthday. This was our first time and we will definitely be back. The patio seating was wonderful. The food was amazing, the wine was delicious, and the service was perfect. They came when we needed us but we never felt like they were pushing us out to fill the table with the next guests. Best dining experience in the Placerville area!
Moms 85th Birthday
Thank you Smith Flat House for a magical night for our friend’s surprise birthday party!
The courtyard at Smith Flat House is very pleasant and has plenty of room for social distancing. We enjoyed the food, and the service was top notch-thanks to Shelby who made our friend’s birthday extra special.
Wonderful large patio, perfect for Pandemic dinning. Food and service were excellent!
This restaurant is usually top notch on everything but they fell short this trip. Service was slow...very slow. Our server, who we always ask for, didn’t seem phased at all. We brought this to her attention and she said “it’s like that sometimes”.
We ended up having a great experience. Our server was fantastic - attentive, courteous, accommodating. Patio only seating and the iron chair/table set up wasn’t very comfortable and it was awkwardly quiet with no background music but the heaters and lighting were a good addition. Food was next to none, service was fabulous.
One of the best places to eat in Placerville. Can't wait to go back.
The food was delicious and fresh. We sat outside, and the atmosphere was charming. It was everything I was hoping for.
Wonderful place! Great food! The black and white was so good! Best filet mignon I have ever had! The sauce was amazing. The butternut squash soup was absolutely outstanding. For dessert we have a cheesecake. Very large peace and so rich and delicious.
