The Smith proved that even 40 degree outdoor dining can be fabulous thanks to heat lamps, attentive servers, and delicious food.
Love Smith. It's a neighborhood spot. Great good. Try the green apple salad. Salmon and pork chops are particularly good. Thanks for the complimentary dessert.
The food is great. We got our favorite table. The service is very good. It was just very cold. There should at least be space heaters. Eating good food while wearing a winter coat is not fun. The beer selection still seems limited.
Oysters were yummy, Oscar was nice! Loved being in doors during cold weather and covid restrictions, heaters could be way bigger
They ran out most of the stuff we wanted. After that, half of the food came out cold and we had to hunt down the waiter for anything we wanted Refills, etc. COVID is tough on everyone but I’ve had plenty of far better experiences as all other places during the pandemic.
The food was incredible, the dirty martini is delicious, and the grits are AMAZING!! Very clean and beautiful environment. I felt safe and sanitized, and we will definitely being returning. Perfect for a date!!
Food came out a little slowly but other than that, service was okay. Good was great, but truthfully a little pricey for a burger and fries.
Had a great time
Awful service- some of the worst I’ve ever had in Chicago
The outdoor dining experience was good and the shrimp & grits was great!
I love the Smith, but think they had an off day this day. Always good food but they were way too busy for only 2 servers and after being told they couldn’t find my reservation in their system after showing them the reservation on the app they sat me 25 minutes later. No worries on the wait, but then we sat for 30 minutes without a server and had a baby with us.
No kids menu just an FYI. And charged us for a huge amount of fries. Just weird atmosphere this day.
Our total time at the restaurant was 2 hrs and 44 minutes. Hate to sound like a Karen here but just beware if you have a baby with you that this is not fast service on the weekend.
Food is always great. But terrible service this day.
Good food, solid choice! Our drinks were very good as well. We had to leave early due to a family emergency and they were very accommodating.
We got a perfect table. The service was a little slow but good. They were out of my first choice but my second choice, a chicken entree, was excellent.
Our serverOscar was exceptional! We will be back.
The food is delicious. Excellent service.
All safety measures in place. Love it here.
Oysters & cocktails!! Excellent all the way around. Had a great time. Shut up and take my money.
Good food; good people. Go; patronize.
I made a reservation for indoor seating at 5:00 but when we got there, staff seemed a little disorganized and told us we would have to sit outside. I know this isn't totally their fault, but eating in 37-degree weather, wearing our winter coats, was challenging. The food was ok. The service was as good as it could be under the circumstances. I do wish you had a better beer selection. Still a terrific restaurant.
Love the vibe, food and brunch special. Where else can you go where brunch drinks are included with your food price? Zero complaints.
Slow service. Took 25 min for a waiter to come over and introduce themselves and get a drink order.
Been here a few times and had pretty good service
The food was delicious. The manager allowed us to switch to a half booth when a larger party was cancelled. Kudos to him and left us with a big impression of the place
Unreal service given covid! Very accommodating and the food was absolutely amazing
The staff went above and beyond to help accommodate our group on the patio. While they only had three heaters for a thirty degree evening, the moved us to the other side and relocated a heater to ensure we would be a bit more comfortable.
Good food and location. Good outdoor dining. Highly recommended.
Brussels sprouts were bland. Squash was ok
The service was great! I ordered a drink I didn't like and our waiter brought me a new one. He also brought over a cookie with a candle in it after hearing it was my BF's birthday, and I didn't even ask for it. It was so sweet!
Great wait staff and bartender!
So yummy and service is always amazing. Will continue to come back.
We had an amazing dinner at the Smith last night. We enjoyed sitting on the outside street dining area with the views of the city! Our staff were amazing - particularly Logan and Javier who were incredibly knowledgeable about the menu items and wines. The mussels, pasta and pork chops were all super tasty. I'd highly recommend and will definitely be going back!
Love the style and decor. Great outdoor seating. The burger is outstanding and fries were crispy like I like them. The Caesar salad was perfectly seasoned with perfect amount of dressing and Parmesan crisps. Salmon was perfectly done with a crisp outside. Fantastic cocktails. We waited a long time for the check and ultimately asked someone else to get it as our server went missing. He had been good to that point. Hopefully a random odd situation.
Solid restaurant - but a lot of time was spent waiting: on our table, on drinks, to order, for the check, etc. Had to send one of the plates order back but the Calamari is really good. Overall pretty average food/experience for the price, but its a nice atmosphere.
was seated for almost 20 minutes before i was greeted or given water. i went to the host stand to ask why i don't have a server.
The food was amazing! The drinks were pretty good. The only problem was our waitress. She seemed pretty stressed (working on a Friday night in the middle of a pandemic, I get it) but she came off as rude/inattentive and that’s not the vibe we wanted to start our night off with especially if you’re getting a great tip. Would recommend and be back again (hopefully we’ll get a better waiter)
Oscar was amazing. Thank you so much!
The service sucked
Food was fantastic but the service staff seemed a bit overallocated, not their fault just a busy night I think.
They have out door setting which is the only way we eat now. The Smith still has a Happy Hour with food specials. We split the deluxe sea food tower plus $1 jumbo shrimp and it was spectacular. Also the weekend brunch was delicious my avocado toast was out of this world. I couldn’t even finish it and it included a Mamosa or a bloody Mary with it. This is our new regular place.
Great service, qualiry food and beverages, nice outdoor space, prices a little high for lunch. Overall, our group enjoyed the experience.
The Smith is consistently outstanding! From NY to Chicago, the quality, service and ambience are top notch!
