We - as alway - had a wonderful experience at Tanner Smith’s! We’ve made it a point to come here at least once every time we’re in New York City, ever since the first visit in 2018.

The food is always excellent, and the same can be said for the service! By luck we’ve had the same two servers each time we visit - one or the other. Sadly, I’m terrible with names, but the young lady who took care of us Saturday had a lovely Irish accent, and made my wife’s birthday brunch one to remember. The carrot cake dessert was an unexpected and delightful touch!

We will of course be back again, and look forward to it with great excitement!

Wonderful lunch/brunch spot just around the corner from our hotel. Very inviting and friendly staff plus yummy food. Even got a tour of the faculty (old Singer Sewing machine manufacturing). Live jazz band. A great first time experience.

Sunday jazzy brunch was swanky. Management was very accommodating regarding seating. Service was a little slow, and food didn’t come as ordered, but otherwise—a nice time was had by all.

Absolutely amazing time at Tanner Smiths! The best pre-theater brunch we ever had...and probably will ever have because we are just going to keep coming back! The live band was such a classy touch to Saturday morning brunch. The staff and manager treated us like old friends. The food was not your typical brunch options, it was beyond! Absolutely delicious. And it just gets better...we discovered there is a speakeasy on the lower level, cannot wait to revisit for an evening drink (shh!)

The poutine is unreal!! The guest I dined with didn’t love what she ordered originally and they promptly swapped it out for another entree without question. Service was slightly less attentive than I prefer and no one acknowledged it was my birthday, even though I put it in the reservation notes, but overall still a really great experience. Love the vibe and really enjoyed my BLT!

We had the tipsy tea brunch. The food was great- the avocado toast and salad tasted excellent. among ourselves we ordered three kinds of cocktails and shared them. All of the cocktails tasted great, but wasn't exactly sure if it matched the food. We also felt like instead of two servings of cocktail, we would've preferred one serving of cocktail and a cup of tea/coffee. Staff was polite and timely. Overall it was a nice place to spend a Sunday morning with friends.

We really enjoyed our girls’ brunch. The food arrived quickly. It was hot and delicious. Those of us who drank really enjoyed our beverages, too. They seemed to have a decent amount of business, but did not seem overly busy. I mention that fact specifically because we saw a person who seemed to be a manager quite a lot. However, after our food was delivered we never again saw our waitress after an initial, “Is everything okay.” To get the bill, we stopped a man who seemed to be a busboy. That said, I liked the food, and the overall atmosphere; it’s chill. It’s just that it’s now on my “take friends when you want a really leisurely and don’t need lights to see things” list.

The food was fine, but what kind of a place doesn't have Bloody Mary's on Sunday at brunchtime? The server said they were out of tomato juice (!!!!), which could have been bought at one of a dozen places nearby. Very odd.

After MOMA we wanted a mid afternoon lunch that wasn't a huge Italian or Asian meal (many of the nearby options) and that wasn't too expensive. Found Tanner Smith's which was well rated and glad we tried it. The front is a cool bar area and the back is a restaurant that's fairly big. Good beers on tap which we ordered and were delivered quickly. Everything we chose was excellent. Grilled cheese with bacon, grilled chicken sandwich with a really nice aioli and cheese, pastrami sandwiches (2) and a roasted vegetable sandwich which had lemon hummus and goat cheese. Each had fries which were crispy and served with ketchup and a ranch? dip that was great. Portions were large but not monstrous.

The downside was the service. Our waitress was kind of scattered. The food and water refills were served by others so that was fine but I had to get up and find the waitress to get our check. Then she didn't come to get the credit card so I again had to find her and stand there while she ran it through. No apology and the manager saw it happening and didn't comment either. She was also covering tables in the front so maybe they were short staffed in the mid afternoon but we spent 15 min more than we wanted waiting to pay our bill.

Atmosphere was relaxed and fun - pub/inn feel with a layout that isn't crammed together. Definitely recommend it but not if you're in a rush.

Food came cold and without flavor. The chicken sandwich was bone dry; my friend's lamb "sliders" were simply pieces of meat, with no garnish, stuck between two buns and had no flavor. Would not recommend this place to anyone.

Our food was really good. There was a slight mistake with my grilled cheese, but right away they fixed it when I told the server. The chorizo flatbread was really good. I would definitely recommend this place and go back another time

Food and place was great but service was terrible. The waitress barely came by..no coffee refills, forgot the cream, etc. we went on a Sunday am just for reference. Another waitress came and helped out but she was clearly stretched herself. Food was great though.

Tanner Smith's was a great place to go to brunch before a matinee! We had the $40 special - 1 entree, 2 drinks and "tea cakes". We could have done without the tea cakes - very plain and not that great. But the entree and drinks were delicious.
