The Smith was absolutely spacious and clean.. With the pandemic they exercise social distancing, and also they protect the waiters. The customers must pull up their mask when they come to your table..

I understand and support your protocol but the fact that you have to waive servers down is incredibly rude/bad service.
And Covid not an excuse for cold food.

Amazing night! It was my bf b-day, and he had a great time. the server was friendly and on point. Food was delicious and service was quick. each table was spread very far apart, and we were required to have our mask on anything we spoke to the server.

We ate outdoors - very nice set-up. Heat lamps gave off just the right amount of warmth. We had the prix fixe lunch and the choices were excellent. I had the gnocchi starter, the salmon entree, and the ice cream for dessert. Food was absolutely delicious.
Service was excellent as well.

I wasn't impressed by the food, eggs benenicts were ok, not hot, the hash was very salty. My reservation was at noon, I got there at 11'40am, waited on line, only to be told that i needed to check in (wait on line agaib) closer to my reservation time.. I will say that they were following Covid Protocols, i.e, distancing and temperature check

We are respective of COVID safety measures. smith seemed to take it to a new level, so we respectfully decided to leave since the experience seemed too restrictive. Those who are looking for extra safety will likely enjoy it. Too much for us.

Everything was great aside from sitting right on top of the N/Q/R/W subway and some loud revelers on the sidewalk from some gathering next door, but what are you going to do in COVID-19 times?

The heat lamps did the trick and the food and drinks were very good.

Hostess must had a bad day. I arrived early and asked if I could have a table. I was told it’s ok they just need to reset the table. After like 20min I approached the hostess if the table was ready. Not impressive. I was seated however I did not feel being a guest.
Server and Busser were extremely polite and professional. Service timing was on the spot. Server had great product knowledge. Kudos! Always checked on us if we needed anything else. There was no manager approached us if we were satisfied or not. Food was amazing. Lady that approached with to go cups was very friendly and had a professional approach.
Hand sanitizer by the entrance of the bathroom was empty.
These are just observations and would return back any time in the future.

My husband and I loved how the restaurant cared for their workers. All customers had to wear their mask every time the staff approached the table. It truly made us feel safe.

The food was absolutely delicious and our outdoors experience was comfortable and warm.

Love this place. I don't outdoor dine often but I feel fairly safe here because the protocols they are following. The food is consistently good. The service is okay; I'm cognizant of the fact that they have a lot of customers, socially distanced, and seem a bit understaffed.

Safety is a big concern for me these days so I really like they take your information in the event contact tracing is required. Temps were taken for everyone in my party and the staff kept a safe distance each time they approached our table. They took safety issues very seriously, the most of any place I’ve eaten at so far, it was very reassuring. Food was as good as ever, very dependable and consistent,

There is no value for money in the food. Just a nice fancy place. They didn't have wine glasses. I wouldn't recommend it. There are plenty of better options.

I have dined at the Smith many times, it’s almost like my Cheers! I love this place, the vibe, the exceptional food, it’s fantastic. However, my visit last week the service was really terrible.

It took maybe 15 minutes to even get water and utensils. The server rarely came to check on us and the dessert took nearly 45 minutes! They were not busy so it really didn’t make any sense.

I hope they address the service because the food is so good!

A little annoying that the diners have to wear their mask when being approached by the waiters who are wearing mask. First restaurant in the city I’ve seen this with. If I’m going out to dine it’s going to be comfortable and safe not taking the mask on and off.

Would not return till after Covid

We decided to have a date night in the city and chose this place last minute. Excellent decision on our part. We both loved the food and the entire feel of the place. I ordered short rib rigatoni, which was delicious. My fiance ordered the blackened porkchop, which he enjoyed. He is a hard critic, so if hes pleased enough to flat out say so then it's great. We look forward to our next date night at the Smith nomad to try different dishes.

The potato chips, Caesar salad, and grilled shrimp were just what I wanted as my first meal in town. It hit every spot. The service was ok. Sitting outside wasn’t so bad but it was a bit chilly therefore hot food didn’t last long. Only gripe is being mid bite and a server addresses you and literally waits for you to finish chewing, put your mask on and then speak. If I’m chewing, it’d be nice if you’d just put my plate down and keep it moving or I’d even be okay if you didn’t pay me any mind until I had my mask on and was ready to address you. Heck, give me a thumbs up at a distance for the service driven folks but don’t make me stop eating just to say “good, thanks!”

I love dining at The Smith. The food is always great and the atmosphere has a festive feel but not super loud and party-ish. I had two friends come in from outside the city and they were very happy with the restaurant. I chose this restaurant because it has plenty of outside seating and one side of the restaurant is on a closed street. However, we did not end up with a table on the closed street side, which unfortunately, can get loud with the traffic and honking. The restaurant is very good about making a barrier to the noisy street but when huge delivery trucks are honking, it's super annoying and feels a bit like the traffic may come crashing into the diners. If you can, I would suggest when you make a reservation that you ask for the closed side of the street.
