Loved the cocktails, tasty food, cool decor
First restaurant meal since January 2020 and it was worth the wait! Excellent food, service and dining outside under the sun was fantastic!
Came in for happy hour. The blue cheese fondue chips are incredibly decadent and satisfying. Oysters and cocktails were great. Eye catching and delicious, "The Gatsby" gin cocktail was very popular (and rightfully so) throughout the restaurant. A great night catching up with a friend surrounded by a very warm/inviting atmosphere. The Smith is my new favorite "go to" spot after work.
The ambiance is always great and the food is delicious
The Smith is a great spot for any occasion. The lighting makes for great ambiance and the staff are so knowledgeable on the menu. The food was incredible. I will definitely be going back.
The squid ink spaghetti was really salty. Waiters even forgot to bring plates to us.
The food and drinks were amazing! Brought my mom here for Mother’s Day and she was very pleased. Perfect vibe and awesome food. 10/10 experience :)
It was great for Mother’s Day brunch!
Took my wife and 8 mo. old here for Mother's day. We originally had a reservation for outside. The weather was poor and they were more than happy to find us a table inside. Lauren was our server and she was fantastic. She had great recommendations and was very personable. She made the whole experience fun and inviting. Food was delicious. We will be back!
Personable waiters and very fast food and drinks!!
Lateef was such an amazing food and beverage manager who stepped outside of his role to help us have an amazing #foodieexperience and captured an amazing photo of the group. The salmon was to die for. The churros were delicious and the sparkling water (which is a favorite of mine) was amazing!!!!
One of my favs. The service is really good and the food is even better! Great drinks as well! They make their ginger beer in house so you should deff get a mule!
Enjoyable meal in busy dining area, outdoor was cold
Everything from the food drinks and ambience an be summed up as “eh”. No complaints but I’ll probably never be back.
It was great but loud
We went for brunch. The food was great and came out quickly after we ordered. I wish there were a few more brunch options, but I love that if you order a brunch item you can get a complimentary brunch cocktail.
The food was great and the service was great! However, it was very very loud.
We both absolutely loved The Smith. We were 30 minutes early to our reservation and they still accommodated us. The food and service was terrific.
Large and very fun location and venue! Was busy on a Sunday morning, the server was slow and had trouble remembering orders. We sat and waited for drinks and to order our food for over 30 min. Brunch was tasty but service was very poor, bummed but hoping it will get better once things start getting back to normal.
Consistently the best!!!
Very crowded. Hostess staff did great. Waiter was not good or transparent about the SLOW kitchen.
Took my parents here for dinner.
I understand we’re in a pandemic and staffing is probably not the best at the moment. But I was dissatisfied with my experience.
The best thing about The Smith? I couldn’t pick. between the food, beautiful cocktails, wonderful service, and ambience, it’s always a good time. couldn’t recommend it more
Terrible service. 20 minutes before our server came to our table. Then, ordered drinks which did not get brought until 30 min later. Took another 30 minutes to get a 2nd drink. Our food arrived 1 hr 45 min after being seated. It is a shame because the food, drinks and ambiance were good but the service was so terrible we will never go back.
We were seated 35 min after our reservation time. They were so overbooked.
A little bit longer wait than ideal given we had a reservation. But the food and drinks were excellent and a very nice place overall.
The atmosphere was amazing, it’s what really brought me into the restaurant. We sat down and got some yummy drinks and appetizers, but then the server never came back to take our entree order and that was disappointing. We were really looking forward to trying more food and get desserts and dessert wine, but by that time we were no longer hungry or in the mood. I may come back at a later time, but choose a less busy time to really be able to enjoy the full experience.
The hostess and management were very nice and the other wait staff were very helpful. Unfortunately, our waiter left us for over half an hour after filling our drink and appetizer order. When another staff member told him we were ready to order, he took our dinner order, but after 45 minutes or so, the manager came to tell us it would be out soon. We are pretty sure he forgot to turn it in. I know it is very difficult to find good staff right now but this waiter upset my husband and was a dark cloud on what could have been a 5 star experience.
Received wrong meal and drink. Service was poor as the restaurant was crazy busy.
Food was decent but overpriced. Wouldn’t not go back again
Hi Olivia, I am so sorry to hear about your experience with us on Saturday night. I'd love the opportunity to connect with you and learn more about your visit and how we can improve in the future. Best, Logan Parris General Manager
First restaurant since last March at the start of the pandemic. We sat outside in the tent and had a wonderful heater. Food was better than expected and the drinks were very nice and included in the brunch which made the whole meal reasonable. I can’t remember wait to go there again!
Options to dine inside, tent or outside table. Great, attentive service.
I like The Smith because of the variety of meals on the menu, they are a bit different than the now standard steak-fish-chicken-vegan
We have wanted to check out The Smith for a while. We decided to give it a try with HH oysters and drinks. Such a great option for date night. We sat outside and felt safe as all staff took covid precautions seriously and tables were spaced out. Will definitely eat here again soon.
Food is not great, mussels were way over cooked
Food was not good. Ordered Brussel Sprouts and Calamari for starters. Brussel Sprouts were bitter and Calamari was very salty. Had mussels for dinner which tasted bland and like they were in bath water. Terrible and then got my birthday cake strawberry pie and that was extremely dry. Just terrible food overall.
The Smith is our neighborhood "go-to" place for an
"out of lockdown" special dinner. Loved the salmon entry and the fried calamari starter. Light batter with a delicious sauce. What's your recipe, Chef?
Mac n cheese was amazing and was my Manhattan. Service was great- outdoor tent area with Heater very comfortable in April. We will be back
Excellent food and service. Let us stay as long as we wanted on a Saturday evening.
Amazing service right when you walk through the door! We had made a quick moment decision to book a reservation on a Saturday afternoon and we LOVED every moment of our time that we decided to come back on Sunday for some after brunch cocktails! Loved the vibes, people, and drinks so much, can’t wait for the chance to visit again.
