We have been to The Smith a couple of times. Unfortunately this visit was not it's usual outstanding service and food. Our server was not very attentive and made mistakes with our food. We were compensated which was nice of the Smith. The outdoor seating is fantastic! Beautiful ambiance. I do hope there will be heaters soon. The food is excellent.

I’ve been very apprehensive about dining out since Covid-19 and the Smith was hands down the perfect experience. The most spaced out seating, the most enforced mask rules. I felt comfortable and happy to be back out in the world. Can’t thank them enough!

I love The Smith and was glad to see them open and busy in Covid times. The service didn't feel as friendly as usual, but it's understandably harder to connect with people while wearing masks and keeping distance. The food is always good and there's something for everyone.

I understand that people are scared of the Corona virus, but service in a restaurant should be kept to a certain level. Maybe if you are too afraid of Corona virus then working serving people is not for you.
We order delivery few times from The Smith, and the experience was much better.

The food was excellent and the environment felt very safe. They followed a lot of safety protocols that I appreciated. The service did feel rushed, however. We ordered a fixed menu for lunch and the waiter was so eager to get us out he forgot to give us dessert. I didn't even realize until we got home even though we had already paid for it.

I had been to the Smith many times but it was my first time since the pandemic.
Their new COVID protocols are very good: temperature taking, getting info for contact tracing, requiring customers to wear masks when the staff comes to the table. I especially liked their new paper menu (for drinks) w/ a QR code so that you can view the food menu on your phone. Those measures make me feel they're trying their best to practice safety not only for the customers but also for their staff. This location is on a corner, which gives them a vast space for outdoor dining w/ decent distance btwn tables.

So we appreciate all those new measures they're taking. The food was pretty good as usual, although my margarita had way too much ice.



The not-very-good points this time:
The only iffy part of the outdoor dining at this location - Due to some trash/garbage situation in the area and the wind directions, we got a whiff of the stink every so often.
Our server did not approach our table (when it was not crowded on a weekday before 545pm) for 20 min after we were seated. My burger, which I ordered "medium" came raw on the entire inside. I realized this is the 2nd time that the doneness of the meat did not come as ordered at this location. The last time we sent the meat back for a bit more cooking, but this time I did not want to send my already sliced and partially eaten burger back. I was irked by the burger, so I stuffed myself w/ their fries.

I LOVE The Smith, it's not their fault about the noise or ambiance, though they have done a good job with the setup. However, I understand outdoor seating is tough to serve but they were not as attentive as they usually are.

Very nice setup for outdoor dining. Tables were properly spaced apart and all the staff (and patrons) were wearing masks. The food is always solid and this meal did not disappoint. Great variety of wines by the glass and bottle to choose from. Thanks for being open and continuing to provide great service.

Food was off today; usually the food here is terrific but today, French toast was dry (not enough time in the egg) and a bit burned. Bananas tasted like they were made last week. I love this place and hope this was an aberration. Everyone can have a bad day.

Burgers were over-cooked/charred and took a long time so it wasn’t worth the effort of waiting for a new one.

Not up to the 'normal' Smith standards that we all know and love, I would have been better to stay home and make dinner.
The staff was unfriendly and not that helpful. I know times are different now and safety is #1 but, every time they come to your table they want you to have your mask on, even in you are in mid-bite of your meal which is inconvenient (especially when eating a burger). If they don't want to approach your table without you having a mask on they should stop coming over every 10mins and let us try and enjoy our meal, or set up a side table where they can place our refills and extra napkins.
Our order had to be repeated over and over because the waiter stood 10ft away from the table and it was hard to communicate with our masks on that far away.
I don't plan on coming back anytime soon....
