    After hearing about how nice Smoked was from so many, my wife and I decided to check it out for a date night. We were very impressed with the availability of so much. The main dining areas are classic and pleasant. The outside patio is beautiful, with great music. The Oasis backside bar is well appointed. There is an oyster bar, micro brewery and great selection of wine and liquor. We finished the evening off in the down stairs speakeasy with fantastic cocktails. We will be back with friends.

    So the ambiance it beautiful! Atmosphere is chefs kiss and everyone is super nice there! However, the food is highly expensive & very little. Also lacks seasoning. The best dish is the seafood dip. My bill alone was up to $70 and I still left there hungry. However the restaurant is beautiful!

    Restaurant was amazing! They had an outdoor area with live music, he played covers and his own songs. The service was outstanding and the food was delightful! Drinks were made perfect as well. If I’m ever in Columbia again, I’ll be back for another round!

    We decided to try this place out for my husbands birthday. It was nice. There was live music and the guy did a great job performing with little jokes here and there. I had the filet which was cooked perfectly, except it was a tad bit too salty for my liking. My husband had the catch of the day (I cannot remember what it was) but he said it was well seasoned and tasty. Our friend had the Lamb and said it was extremely tender. All 4 of us cleared our plates. It is a little pricy but it’s not necessarily over priced. I definitely recommend checking it out!

    Our server Sean was awesome. But the food was below par. The food quality was terrible. The burnt ends were not “smoked” nor “burnt” they tasted deep fried. Out of au gratin potatoes but had mashed potatoes & french fries… Fettucini alfredo had zero flavor. You literally cannot mess that up. The seafood dip and the corn were the only decent things that we got. The smoked old fashioned we assumed would come to our table smoking/smokey like all other “smoked” old fashions, a lid came on it with not an ounce of smoke. My vape had more smoke. Sean was awesome and super attentive but a place that costs that price for the type of food was terrible.

    Peace & Bliss Beautiful Humans, YOU MUST DINE AT SMOKED!!!! Smoked is absolutely beautiful. The ambiance is sexy, romantic, classy, & truly stunning! If you enjoy beauty & fine dining, this place is for you. From swivel chairs to romantic booths, gorgeous chandeliers, & warm inviting paint colors, this restaurant has it all. I was early for my brunch date, so I enjoyed the Soda City market. Service: We were waited on by Vinnie, who was charming & attentive. Drinks: I don't drink, but he was eager to share the Mocktail menu, which itself was really pretty & well presented. I had the Everything but the ABV: refreshing & tasty, they also offer mocktails not on that menu. I personally like mock flavored mojitos & flavored margaritas with salt. I'll try that next time. Food: My date ordered the seafood dip, which includes oysters & lobster, it comes with pita bread & was PHENOMENAL! He also ordered me the salmon & grits with a scramled egg. He ordered the chicken & waffles for himself. All of it was fresh, hot, & magnificent. Notes: 1. If you book on Open Table, call to verify the reservation went through. 2. Do get dressed, I received so many compliments on my dress & it was nice to finally wear it out. 3. If you are in the city on the weekend, parking is free. 4. They allow animals to enter on the patio side. I loved that for pet owners & animal lovers. It does bother me for people to try & dine with their pets that aren't service dogs. 5. For the Fine Gents: It's a really nice touch if you are doing a weekend date to stop through Soda City Market & grab her 💐 flowers. It's a beautiful gesture & is only a few steps away. Bon Appétit mi amors❣️

    Nice restaurant but they missed the mark on our recent Thursday evening visit. The scallop entree was $32 for two U-10 scallops with a small amount of brussel sprouts saute. It was tasty but ridiculously overpriced. The mahi mahi special entree was okay, the fish itself was very good but they had a very overpoweringly sweet coconut and ginger (could taste any) sauce. The server said it was $40 but $44 showed up on the bill. We ordered dessert, they only had two offered, and it arrived without the stated ice cream and the runner said "sorry no ice cream, I will tell your server". The server apologized and we weren't charged for it but disappointing. They did have a really great guy singing and playing music which was very enjoyable. Sadly, but overall for $160 bucks, definitely not worth it.

    My dining experience was very good, mostly because of the service. This is the first time, however, that I have EVER been charged (without being told) to change the starch that accompanied the dish. An extra $12 to change grits to potatoes is a little steep on a $48 entree.

    The food is okay to good, but the same thing can be found somewhere else for a lesser price. Just be honest for why you are going, and that's for the vibe and upscale feel, not for the food. You'll have a good time if you know why you're going there.

    The meal was delicious and the ambience perfect! Terrific service, when we return we will ask for Sean! It had been a long day moving our Freshman into his dorm and so sad saying goodbye. Halley was the hostess that evening and was so kind, seating us in a more private location. Thank you Smoked, for ending a tough day on such a wonderful note!

    Callie, our server, was excellent. She tended to all of our needs and made excellent suggestions. The atmosphere (oasis lounge), was cozy and intimate. The front dining room is elegant and the patio looked inviting. All of the staff were friendly and accommodating. The food is excellent. We ordered mainly appetizers; the pork ends, the lemon parmesan oysters, and the seafood dip (did not realize it was a brunch (2:30pm), and the menu was a bit limited). Great place to dine!

    The restaurant is beautiful and located wonderfully downtown. Perhaps we caught it on an off night, but the food was underwhelming. I had red snapper and it was the most overcooked piece of fish I’ve ever tried to eat. It actually looked more like tilapia. Could only do two bites My friend had the pork chop and it was over cooked as well. Side dishes were very good, and oysters were delicious, however, I don’t think I’ll be returning. It was a very slow night yet the service was lacking.

    The restaurant was very nice, the food itself was okay in my opinion. I had the Lamb over the spinach rosatto and the rainbow carrots. The lamb was cooked very well, however there was more fat than I'd like, and the flavor was pretty bland. Otherwise, the service, the wine, and atmosphere were great.

    Great place and atmosphere, service was unlike anything I've experienced. The prices on the menu didn't reflect in the taste of the food. The wet aged steak was the highlight and by far the best dish out of the 4 we ordered but still not a $72 steak. 2nd best was the bison, would have easilybeatenthe steak if it was more tender and less dry (although I've been told bison tends to be dry). The seafod linguine was good but not $40 good, more like a $27 dish. I had the special with green mussels, shrimp, and Jonah crab claws, it had the perfect amount of seafood in it. It had a flavorful broth but was highly unseasoned. After eating I was left with a bowl full of broth that just went to waste.

    Our server was incredibly friendly, attentive and just an absolute delight. The food was some of the best I’ve ever had! We tried both of the charbroiled oysters, the steak flight and the tuna tartare. The cocktails were out of this world. The atmosphere and decor was wonderful as well! The only negative was the amount of flies flying around our food because the door to the outdoor patio kept getting left open.
