Came early to our reservation and were able to be seated immediately, super impressed by that. Our server was excellent, food came out quickly. Decor of the restaurant was lovely, only issue was noise. However the restaurant was huge and high ceilings so that is to be expected ! Great time, would recommend !

Very good service overall . Bus boy a bit quick to clear plates was only complaint since still working on finishing burrata. Patient and friendly waiter. Obliged request for table to accommodate stroller in a quieter corner. Food was very good. Salmon and sea bass cooked to temperature. Burrata was nice appetizer enough to share with two other people. Didn’t have time to try dessert. Noise level was higher due to busy room so expected for peak dining hour but not disruptive to conversation. Smith is a good option for multiple diners with different menu preferences or diet restrictions. There is something for everyone to be pleased at a reasonable price point.

The waitress and waitstaff were very pleasant. Sadly the food at this restaurant was little above an Applebys. I can't imagine how there are so many good reviews. My chicken pot pie was a skillet of inedible chicken with grizzle in a tasteless flour gravy. My husband's pasta was better but not by much. Even the bread was awful. It seemed to be full of tourists and 20 year old girls. I would never eat here again. And it wasn't cheap. The wine list was also from hunger. Don't eat here.

Service was fine.

Food was good, but jalapeño grits need more than one sliver of jalapeño, and the shrimp were over cooked. Otherwise, very goods

Noisy.

Quick.

The quality of the food and the upscale setting never ever disappoints! It is a very noisy and crowded location, though, so not suited for intimate conversations. More for energetic, hearty brunches.

The service was great! Although my friend is late for about 45 minutes, we still get our table within 2 minutes after she arrived. The choice of brunch is great and the quality of food is good. We sat to talk for another two hours without being asked to leave. No complains, great place to meet and catch up!

An excellent place for a family brunch or brunch with friends. Great ambiance, and exactly the same as other Smith Locations (in case you're worried they won't have your favorite dish)

Wouldn’t call the noise level energetic. Just loud and unbearable. Couldn’t hold a conversation because it was so loud. Awful acoustics or lack of.

Four of us enjoyed a good dinner at The Smith prior to going to the theatre. It was around the corner from our hotel. We had a good time and I’d go back , either with a small or larger group from work.
Two of us had pasta, which I almost never have in restaurants, the squid ink and the mushroom, both were very good. Others had a grilled cheese , fries and an ahi appetizer, which were good. Brownie sundae for shared dessert which was really good. Service was excellent. It’s a little loud in there, it’s big and there’s slot of tile but I asked for something quieter and they put us in the back, which worked out well. They have some nice booths about midway back which looked pretty good, and you could sit at the bar by yourself or with another and be pretty happy. Big restaurant but they get the food out. I’ve seen the smith before when staying in the neighborhood , I’ll go there again.

Service was attentive without being pushy, and the meal was fantastic. We arrived early but they were still able to seat us after a little wait, and we had one member of our party who is notoriously difficult to please in restaurants who was delighted and satisfied at the end of our meal. All around, a great evening.

Food was excellent and consistent as always. Celebrating a friends birthday. It was so loud that it made it impossible to hold a conversation without yelling above the already loud groups around us. Took away from the overall good time.

The Smith-Nomad was so accommodating to our large family party, ensuring our glasses were full and that we had exactly what we wanted. The only comment I would make is the pizza that our children ordered isn't exactly a traditional pizza, more of a ciabatta bread with sauce and cheese. They didn't eat it, and I would have ordered differently had I known. Everything else was phenomenal!

The Smith is a fun place to meet up with friends for a casual meal with friends. I had the Old Cubano cocktail which was really delicious. Our group had the mussels, the shrimp and grits and the short rib pasta. The favorite dish was the mussels-wish they served bread with it because the sauce is great! Try the apple pie for dessert-it’s quite good.

I consider myself a bit of a regular now. It's my goto place for a quick lunch meeting with coworkers, friends and customers. The food's always on point, the service is great. One suggestion is that you should always make a reservation if you can, as the place gets pretty packed during the lunch or dinner rush.

I literally eat at the NoHo Smith once ever two weeks - usually for breakfast. I love the service, ambiance and food.
