Expansive and adorable outdoor seating, great brunch. Lovely service. While you have to come to terms with a side of bacon costing $8, plenty of the pricing is reasonable enough for Manhattan and it's great to know a place where you can always know there's a table. I went for the $8 bacon. Select wisely from the menu and you'll have a fantastic time.

The food was solid. As delicious as always.
The service, however, could use an upgrade. No one was rude, but the experience was not commensurate with the service that we’ve come to know and expect at The Smith

The service was very poor. We waited 20 minutes to be seated despite the fact that we had a reservation. We had requested an indoor table but were sat outside in the 90º heat. The server almost never came by our table. We waited 15 minutes after we were done eating to flag them down so we could get the check. I would not recommend this location for a lunch during the work day.

We waiting over 30 minutes after our reservation time to sit down. The excuse was, "People aren't leaving their tables and we don't give time limits." I don't understand how this worked fine BEFORE covid but now reservations don't matter. Servers came every five minutes to take our orders when we weren't ready and certainly not in a rush. A different waiter came for our drink order after we had ordered with someone else. The food was fair. I will not come back again.

The food was great, loved the strawberry pie (though I really should’ve shared it, it was that big) and my former students who just finished their freshman year in college loved it.

Really an awful experience. The food was decent but the atmosphere was awful and service was deplorable. Very noisy inside so we opted to eat outside. That meant we were in the middle of traffic so it was noisy. Serve was slow. We seemed to have 2-3 different waiters. Took forever to get the check. Would not return

Great service, our MAC-CHEESE was taking a little longer than usual so 2 different managers came to inform us that we would not be charged for it. Great service.

Perfect outdoor experience! Food was still at it's pre- pandemic excellence! Loved the private space setup & all the people watching it allows. It was familiar & a welcome return to the city after being away so long!

Had great lunch yesterday at The Smith Nomad. I requested an outdoor table that was not under the scaffolding around the building. The table was great, but sitting out on the street was a bit noisy - but in a good energetic kind of way. The food was good. I ordered the grilled chicken sandwich. It was a bit sloppy, but very tasty and better eaten with a knife and fork. If I had any criticism, it was that the service was a tad slow. Since we were not in a hurry, it really did not matter. I would certainly go back. It was a great lunch out in NYC!!!

Good food and ambiance. Slow-ish service. Probably still finding their post covid groove. Otherwise it was good.

Not sure why this place is so noisy. I like it but probably will not go back because it is difficult to have a conversation. Our waiter was outstanding!

Great outdoor seating arrangements - covered and "private" set-up with one table in each, separated by plastic dividers. Good (not outstanding) food.

Sat at my table with nothing to drink after my food was served. Then I finished my food and waited so long for someone..ANYONE to come by, that I watched two other tables get seated, order, be served, paid, and leave all while I waited for my check. Literally over an hour.

The Smith is perfect for brunch. The establishment has plenty of indoor and outdoor seating options with adequate COVID protection protocols. Our server (I am sad that I do not remember his name) was great! He was very friendly and accommodating. Our food and drinks were very good. I recommend the Gatsby!

I love the Smith. Especially Nomad. I miss the manager Mary who is now transferred. Staff and food are just extraordinary. Period. You must, must have the sticky toffee pudding with an extra scoop of vanilla. Life-changing.

Thank you for accommodating our outdoor seating options. I made reservation for outdoor but there weren't any available after over 30 min. wait, so the manager asked if it's okay to seat us near the window. It was perfect. Also, they gave us some starters for free. Thank you. It was my first "indoor" dining experience in 15 months. Thank you!

Great place for date night. Place has a modern yet classical bar feel to it. It sorta feels like a 5 star fancy restaurant but the food is good old casual American classics.
