Located at the historic Belmont Hotel in the Oak Cliff neighborhood of Dallas, SMOKE is a back-to-basics restaurant with a giant wood-burning stove at its heart, which churns out most of the menu. Nearly everything is made in-house from sausages, sauces, pickles and breads to wood-infused spirits and aged batch cocktails. Seared scallops, grilled quail and bricked Cornish hen share equal space on the SMOKE menu with big flavor smoked meats. Lauded as "one of the most interesting and important restaurants in the city" by The Dallas Morning News and named as "One of the Top Plates in America" by Food and Wine Magazine, SMOKE is laying the ground for a new approach to cooking and dining.

Historically have gone to this restaurant regularly, but for no particular reason had not been there in about 18 months. It was absolutely great, but not so much any more. Went for breakfast / brunch - At 8:30 a light crowd, no bacon, no decaf coffee, meals delivered >10 minutes apart, had to request water and coffee refills. Requested additional syrup for pancakes and waitress tried to talk us out the request. Probably the last time that we will go there in this lifetime.

As a native New Yorker visiting Dallas for the first time, I wanted the taste of true Texan Smoke BBQ food- and SMOKE did not disappoint. The food was amazing, the drinks unique and good, the appetizers out of this world! I would definitely go back and recommend this place to others.

We were in town for a conference and just found out about it from the hotel. The food was amazing and we all (10 of us) had a great meal for a wonderful price. We wished we were in town longer to go back again!

After hearing some good things I have to say I was very disappointed. The restaurant's atmosphere was sterile. I had to waive a waiter down to order our food. When my food arrived it was cold (How can a restaurant serve cold brisket and sausage? I mean....who does that? How can that happen?) and the brisket was extremely tough. Very disappointing.

The staff was truly amazing. But my food was cold. I asked for it to be heated, I had to wait a lot to get it back and it was just slightly warmer. But the waiter was extremely attentive. I was there alone after having my flight cancelled, and the atmosphere was very nice. The dessert, I had churros, was warm and delicious.
Overall good, but I was not happy with my main course.

Smoke is a reliable and occasionally creative barbecue restaurant for when you want excellent barbecue without going to a counter-service barbecue joint. A standout is the smoked wood-infused spirits. The Sazerac was a standout.

Good food, but service was only fair. Still not sure if the person taking our order was the host or the waiter. Regardless, he never took our drink orders until we asked after he took our food order. It didn't seem like he was experienced. Food took what seemed like a long time for very few people present.

I have been here and typically LOVE this place. We started off ordering mimosas- The glasses were cleaned but not rinsed so they smelled a bit like bleach and made it hard for us to enjoy. Our eggs were over cooked on my eggs Benedict and the hash browns were burned. Service was great and this is not typical. Hopefully not a sign of what is to come!

We've visited Smoke a few times, once with out-of-town guests. A bit of a drive for us, but well worth it. Everything I've eaten has been wonderful and the others feel the same. I had fish tacos this last time which were good, but I was very envious of my son's brisket platter. Friendly and attentive service if a bit confused at times. I'm sure we'll be back soon.

Food was delicious and plentiful for the price. That said, for whatever reason, half the table received their food almost 10 minutes before the other half. This was not ideal at all.

Our table had brisket and scallops. Both were fabulous! I loved the Brussel sprouts with white beans and bacon with the grilled scallops. The brisket was tender, moist and flavorful. The potato salad was a hit with my husband who doesn’t even like potato salad! Best barbecue!

Great find for a Great Breakfast. The location is in an up and coming neighborhood. The food is well developed and prepared with care. The service there is excellent. The restaurant reminds you of having breakfast in someone's living room. Overall it was a great experience. Definitely visiting them again as this place is a keeper.

I've been to Smoke several times over the years and service keeps getting worse. The server took a while to greet us, our first round of drinks took even longer, they got my order wrong, didn't bring silverware until 10 minutes after we had food, didn't bring the bbq sauce (usually brought in advance of food). Also, consistency in menu / way food is made is good, but they always change for no reason.
