Wasn't too busy for 6pm on a Sunday. Could have gone in without a reservation. Service was friendly and my meal came out fairly quick.

Service was amazing, but the food is mediocre. Apple pancake tasted delicious, the main course was too salty

We went for brunch while celebrating my birthday. We made reservations but the place was backed up with customers. It took at least 15 minutes past our reservation time for us to be seated. Once seated, our servers were cordial but the main server took longer than usual to take our order and bring our food. The Brussels sprouts we ordered were slightly burned and the NY strip I ordered was over cooked. Since we had other plans, we did not make a fuss out of this because ultimately, we had fun at the restaurant and the rest of the meal was very good.

Poor experience, server had too many tables to be able to be attentive to drinks and meal. mains arrived half way through eating starters, so starters taken away half eaten. Mains over cooked and tasteless. Mains then cleared and given bill without asking by different server and then original server comes with dessert menus and to check if mains okay after we had paid. No checking on if wanting more drinks or anyone to ask so only had one drink throughout. Poor experience

The food and service were both much less pleasant than I remember from The Smith. The burger and fries were really basic, the burrata was below par, and the presentation of the desserts was pretty messy. Disappointing, and disappointingly expensive.

A little pricey for bistro food, but it is really good, and not a gamble. We always enjoy The Smith. The burger is awesome and the fries even better. Will go back!

Dined with my adult daughter. Noise level allowed for us to speak without shouting across the table. Service was very good. They brought the bowls to discard the mussels after I had eaten half of them, would be the only criticism I had. Been to all of The Smiths in Manhattan and have always enjoyed the overall experience.

The outdoor seating was poorly heated and protected. It can and should be much better considering dining preferences and that we are in the early part of winter.

Service was also off. Had to ask multiple times for something that was missing form an order.

Overall - we like the place.

The turkey pot pie was outstanding. The crust was crispy throughout - not soggy at the interface with the meat and vegetables. The meat-vegetable ratio was right. The spice level was right - not excessively salty. The staff were exceptional.

Best thanksgiving, ever!

Craft cocktails, Yummy turkey and gravy, spinach, Brussels sprouts caramelized to perfection! Ding ding! we have a winner!

We sat on the terrace for great people watching which I loved!

Our server, whose dry wit kept us cackling all night, was neither neglectful nor too doting. She knows what she’s doing.

Thank you!

Thanksgiving at The Smith was less than overwhelming. The service was very good (but not perfect - we were served the main course before we had out salads... they were intended for the table next to us. The food was good - but not excellent.. it was obvious the entrees were prepared in advance and by the time we got there the sides were well cooked. The atmosphere was nice, but noisy - and we had to wait even though we had reservations. Overall, I had hoped for more.

Was surprised by the Thanksgiving pre-fixe menu being $72/person, with many of the iconic Smith menu items removed. Had we known this information first, we would not have made a Thanksgiving reservation. Ended up leaving to go elsewhere.

Our server Maddie was Awesome!!!! I know how difficult it is to work on a holiday but you would never know by her super sweet positive attitude! Thank you Maddie!!

The food was divine!! The butternut squash spaghetti was perfection!! I definitely want to return soon just for some more of that and the goat cheese salad was to die for!! My brother and nephew had the turkey legs and that was a big hit!!

Thank you The Smith restaurant for serving up a great evening with outstanding service, spectacular food and with an extremely fair and reasonable prices!

Went with my family for Thanksgiving dinner. While the restaurant was super crowded, the service and food were great. And the price/value relationship was outstanding. We had more than enough to eat, even left overs.

Thanksgiving dinner in the dependably excellent dining room at The Smith NoMad. Portions on the three-course price fixe menu were generous and varied enough to satisfy everyone’s tastes in our party. Just like our past visits, The Smith does not disappoint.

I can here to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday. I’m originally from the south where we do Thanksgiving right, but I must say, The Smith did NOT disappoint. I had the Thanksgiving Prix Fix. I started with the gnocchi, moved on to the turkey pot pie for my entree, and finished with the apple pie. The plates for the table (Mac and cheese, brussel sprouts, and stuffing, were delicious! Everything was delicious, for that matter! It was entirely too much food, so I was able to have doggy bags galore!

I also had two drinks during my visit. 1. The holiday cocktail that was on offer (I don’t recall the name but it had candied cranberries). 2. The pear Prosecco cocktail. Both were very delicious!

The atmosphere was so warm and inviting. The space was a little cozier than I would have liked, but the restaurant verified each guest’s vaccination status prior to entry, so we were as safe as could be expected. The wait staff was incredibly attentive and efficient. I never waited more than a minute to get something I requested and there was always someone available to help.

All in all, I had a wonderful time! I’m planning on making this my Thanksgiving tradition, so I’ll definitely be back next year!

Terrible experience. We booked through open table high seated tables, got there and told us our reservation was for first come first serve. The guy at the entrance was very rude. We had a seat at the bar( seats were extremely uncomfortable) sat there for 10 min the guy at the bar didn’t even look at us to offer us a drink, give us the menu or welcome us. We had to LEAVE!!!!!
Do NOT GO!!!!!!

Seated right away at our reservation time. Server had great drink recommendations. Tried a steak, shrimp and grits, the rigatoni and the bolognese. We loved everything!!! Had no room for dessert. Server just placed dessert menus and walked away haha. Sooooo we shared the hot fudge sundae and the double chocolate cake. Delicious! Definitely try this spot.

Great American restaurant. Diverse menu with plenty to choose from but not overwhelming. Had the vegetarian burger which was great. Lots of energy and service was awesome. Definitely recommend it.
