Our server was inattentive and sub par. Hostess was rude. We went to so many amazing restaurants during our latest stay and this was the worst. We were excited to eat here, especially with such great ambiance. Honestly the staff made it a 2 star.

The service was slower than any other time I had been there. It was a let down to also have one of our meals served raw. Not sure what was happening during that lunch service.

The Smith is a reliable NYC standard for consistently delicious American food. I love bringing friends and out of towners alike here. Something for everyone. The atmosphere is festive even during Covid and safety protocols are fully in place. The salmon was delish and the crunchy calamari with aioli was also fresh and crunchy. A lovely dinner under the twinkling string lights of Broadway and 28th Street.

Very chill spot. I like how they separated the tables to social distance. However I did notice that they forgot to clean the table in between switching customers. Overall good spot

Great place to grab a bite to eat in the Flatiron District. The restaurant is taking great precautions to keep their customers and staff safe. The food was delicious, the staff was friendly, and we enjoyed our time at the restaurant.

Used to love this place, till something drove it off the cliff. Two things just broke my experience. 1)Pricing, why is a BLT with an egg on a potato hamburger bun $18 like get over yourself. 2) Our waiter was so busy we couldn’t even get our drinks refilled, we had to find someone to get our check. It felt like we could have walked away without paying and no one would have noticed. I’ve been to multiple Smiths at different locations many times and I’m sad to say the journey ends here.

Friday night light dinner with friend at The Smith. Surprised at how busy it was but they did keep proper spacing and plastic screens between tables. Had a flatbread pizza app which was tasty and kale quinoa salad with grilled shrimp as entree. Could have used more shrimp but was tasty, too. Forgot that drinks were so expensive but had a nice evening and was nice to be out on a Friday night.

Tables couldn't be any smaller. I didn't have room to cut my daughter's steak without having to stand up. We got no appetizers, there is no bread basket and with their silly rule of having to wear a mask every time a server came to your table, even to bring you unsanitary salt and pepper we needed to put our masks on. I had to sit on my mask since there was no room on the table, the chairs are uncomfortable, and the value of the food, not taking in to account the tight uncomfortable seating, was obscene.
I had a burger, my wife had the chicken, and the kids each had a kid steak.
No appetizers, 2 glasses of wine for my wife and I, no drinks for the kids, no dessert. After tip, $200.

A very long wait to order much less get water to the table. Also a long wait to order another drink. The only thing that came fast was the bill.

First time dining out indoors in a year, and I wanted it to be at The Smith.

The Covid protocols all made me feel safe. I was especially pleased that we were asked us to put our masks back on whenever one of the staff approached the table... and when they did approach the table, they waited for us to do so! I hope all restaurants are this diligent.

The Brussels sprouts and the shoshitos were great as ever.

My dining companion loved the salmon dish. I had the new pork Milanese which was very good, but I miss the pork chop (which is what I was hoping to order).

The fries were excellent.

All in all, a pleasing return to dining out indoors.

Great food and drinks. It was my first time dining out in more than a year. The staff was very good about following COVID safety protocols. We had a nice outdoor booth, decent spacing from other patrons. They also had a happy hour special until 6.

I ate there twice recently. Their chicken under a brick dish is quite good. It comes with mashed potatoes and gravy. Their chicken pot pie lacked flavor, was $25, and I felt that it was overall poorly made.

The outdoor seating—covered & heated—is great (I hope it’s permanent), especially since the indoor restaurant is typically extremely loud with exclusively hard surfaces/noise-reflecting decor. We had one slow eater in our party and felt VERY rushed. They sat 4 of us at a 6-top and apparently they have a one-hour time limit (we were there for about 90 min). Perhaps we should’ve been at a 4-top if they knew they needed a 6-top soon? And maybe one hour is too short of a time period when the food takes ~30 min to come out. And that’s without specialty drinks, appetizers, or desserts. The food was fine (everything needed seasoning). But the overall experience & hospitality was lacking from what you’d expect at a staple NYC restaurant chain.

fantastic place - excellent service - they didn't rush us which i loved because we had a picky eater with us who couldn't decide - the place was very busy when we were there and everyone around us seemed as delighted with their orders as we were with ours - we will absolutely be back again!

We usually eat at The Smith at Lincoln Center for dinner and always enjoy their mussels. We were at first disappointed when we saw there were no mussels on the brunch menu, but after we both enjoyed different DELICIOUS versions of eggs benedict, we realized we had no reason to be and in fact were thrilled to have chosen something different.
Paired with their craft cocktails, our brunch was one we will look forward to repeating.

Both the food and the service truly were perfect. Tables were well-spaced, and masking rules were enforced. Terrific Sunday morning dining experience.
