We had an amazing brunch! The staff was very attentive.
We had a great experience! We loved the ambiance and the Smoke ‘Em If You Got ‘Em cocktail was a perfect option for mezcal lovers. We ordered the shrimp ‘n grits and gnocchi and would highly recommend both!
Food is great and good value but the service continues to get worse by the second. We are loyal customers and are considering not going back because of constant service issues.
Great food and great service. Would recommend.
Meal and service was excellent!
All entrees perfectly presented and delish.
Waitress was wonderful.
We loved this restaurant! Added bonus is that a brunch cocktail is included with your meal! Would most definitely go back!!
Loved it in NYC, super pumped to see it here in Chicago. Perfect spot for a cozy dinner or lazy brunch with great cocktails and menu to boot.
The service was great and it’s a super cute spot I REALLY wanted it to be my new go to.. we ordered the churro waffles to start the sauce was cold and since the waffles were already only room temp ... they were tasty though I just wish the sauce wasn’t cold. I ordered the Benedict I didn’t expect them to be on a skillet of cornbread it was tasty but I didn’t love it the person I was dining with has the French toast the middle wasn’t all the way done but the edges were pretty hard. Everyone has a one off and this place was cute and I will give it another chance but my first experience wasn’t the best
Their avocado toast is by far the best in River North, and their rice bowl is sooooo delicious - and both are great vegetarian options. An especially nice touch is the free sparkling water they include, in bottles, at the table.
We were not served of helped by a wait person the entire time. Our food came our wrong and took 15 minutes to make again. Seated far away
The food and atmosphere are great!! Brunch is a great deal- many dishes included a cocktail!
Cannot go wrong eating here. Something for everyone. Usually have the Johnny Benedict and love it, but ventured into the lunch menu. The Milanese Cod was amazing
The short rib was delicious! The cocktails were delicious also. We got the calamari and the shishitto peppers. My fiancé got the shrimp and grits and absolutely loved it. I would recommend The Smith to anyone looking for a good vibe and good food.
Amazing experience. My friend has food allergies and they went above and beyond to accommodate her. Food was DELICIOUS!!! Awesome and fun experience.
The Smith has a super cool vibe with white subway tile and black iron work. The music and ambiance was vibrant, entertaining and full of life for a date night with the hubby before a night at the opera. The place was casual enough that we could relax but still very classy so we didn’t feel overdressed or uncomfortable.
The service was great, our waiter was very cool, an actual human who had a conversation with us as first time visitors (and someone with food allergies).
But the reason to comeback is the incredible food! Short ribs were done to perfection! Hubs had an awesome NY strip. We’re still talking about the pan fried Brussel sprouts with orange zest! Who knew that would be such a flavor changer! Killer s’mores in jar for dessert! We fought over the giant homemade marshmallow on top... Good thing we walked to the opera, had to burn off that dinner. It was epic! Will definitely be repeat customers.
Made reservations for 12pm on a Friday and glad I did! The place filled up within minutes.
The skirt steak with chimichurri is awesome. The brussel sprouts were amazing too.
Came for a team lunch and everything was great!
Went for the first time with my team for a birthday celebration. Food was totally delicious and the staff was friendly and amazing. We had the chicken pot pie and the short rib bolognese tagliatelle for entrees and the warm chocolate chip cookies and toffee pudding for dessert.
Lots of choice I'd make before The Smith. Really kind of average.
The butternut salad (my starter) was excellent and generously sized. I ordered the mushroom/fontina cheese flatbread as a main course: it was so greasy it was almost inedible. I only ate half and took the rest home. I ended up throwing it away as the cardboard box it has been sent home in was saturated with oil.
There are too many restaurants in Chicago that do flatbread better. I will not be returning.
Service was friendly though the waiter disappeared for a very long period when the place got busy.
The food and the service were absolutely outstanding! The manager Christina made the evening incredible! We already made reservations for the NYC location for our trip next month.
Great menu! Burgers are excellent and fries crispy and light. Service was awesome too. Enjoyed our meal here and would definitely come back.
Had a great time for brunch at The Smith. Would recommend highly for the kind staff as well as fresh and innovative menu and flavors.
Service is phenomenal. The included breakfast cocktail with your brunch entree is a great deal. Food is bomb diggitty.
Think this might be a better spot for lunch than dinner. Lots of larger tables (bachelorettes, birthdays, etc) made it a bit loud. But if you need a place that can accommodate a larger group then this would work for you. Large menu. Food came pretty quickly (before drinks even arrived, our apps were set down). Loved the kale/quinoa salad, burrata app, and truffle gnocchi. Salmon entree was outstanding, but the steak and fries was just so-so. Would try for lunch but not go back for dinner.
Extremely good service and food
Great spot. Lively and they even put a candle on dessert for our anniversary.
The price for restaurant week brunch was so affordable and the food was absolutely amazing. I recommend all of the starters and the Breakfast pot pie. Will definitely be back to try more and for the Tuna Tartar!
