Felt a bit like a chain restaurant (not my style), but the food was tasty and service friendly. It is a loud place - not great for conversation.

Food was excellent, highly recommend the fried green tomatoes,mac and cheese, the supreme burger and the short rib special...mushroom flatbread was kinda dry and hard. Server was fast but had to ask for water and they do a terrible job of clearing the tabled of used plates and cutlery.... and the end asked a bus boy about getting a box to take some food to go and he was clueless.... manager had to box up the good for us, also had to wait for the check... busy Saturday night but food made up for the shortcoming on the service side

We were celebrating my son’s 32nd birthday after the matinee performance of Hamilton. The food was good and the server was very cheerful. They were able to accommodate an additional person without a fuss.

We had a great dinner at ‚the Smith‘. The food came so fast and the service was very kind and obliging. Even though it was difficult to understand each other because of the volume, we had a fun time and enjoyed our dinner.

Service was beyond bad. Sat there for 40 min before someone came by only after I flagged someone down. Our whole area seemed lacking service. Hoped it would be good but would not recommend.

Amazing food, drinks, and service at The Smith on a Saturday night. We had a friend with a shellfish allergy and they went above and beyond to accommodate her needs (There were flags in every dish that were edible). Thank you for a great experience, your staff made our evening!

I went there with my girlfriend and we both had the burger supreme and bloody marys. The burger bun was soggy and broke into pieces. The patty was just ok, nothing special. The cocktails were almost undrinkable, almost all alcohol.

The Smith is so consistently good, we have been to 3 of their locations and they never disappoints. We often take O/Seas guests who are mainly impressed by the scale of the venue and the exciting vibe. Great comprehensive menu often difficult to decide on an entree. Great side dishes. Beautiful raw selection.

Excellent food, attentive service, great value. They don't rush you here--even on a busy night. Only drawback is that the noise level is high in this bustling location

Had a great brunch with two friends at The Smith. Service was great, our server was attentive and incredibly friendly. The food came out quickly, and was delicious. The drinks were good. I can't wait to go back!
Would absolutely recommend for a brunch with people who want both breakfast and lunch. It was a bit loud, but that is how boozy brunch should be ;)

One of the Smith locations. Ambiance is fantastic. Our waiter was great and attentive. My only gripe is the portions for the burger I ordered. The burger used to be very generous in size but no it's about 3/4 of what it used to be and even that's a stretch. This is the 2nd Smith location where the burger is minuscule in size. When the menu makes you think. You're getting this grandiose burger. Tasted good but left you wanting for more.

First of all: I LOVE the Smith Nomad. My friend and I go almost every Saturday for Brunch. We LOVE it there. Our wait staff is always very lovely. I have no complaints with them, the food or the bevvies.

The noise can be loud but I can't blame people for wanting to be there. AND I will say since we make resies we are ALWAYS seated so I guess I'm negating myself.

I will say that I DON'T like that the Smith got rid of some of their cocktails.
