Ate outside. Service was great. Food was great. Adherence to Covid rules was great. Felt safe and well fed and well taken care of. Would recommend!
Great service! We felt cared for and the food was was worth it!
Fabulous overall with one minor exception- we were told as we checked in for our reservation that we would have to agree to be out within an hour prior to being seated. I was a bit shocked by that, but we agreed. Did not get our food until 35 minutes later, and we really had to watch the clock in order to comply with having to be done and out of there in the hour time frame we were given. I would suggest that if this is a policy for Saturday brunch (or any other time, for that matter) -it should be made clear during the reservation process that we may only have 1 hour at a table. It’s a little off-putting to have to consent to essentially have a meter running on your table prior to being seated. I think The Smith can do better than this.
The food was excellent. We had a great large tasy omelet. The service was superb. A cheerfulwaiter. The prices are reasonable. The restaraunt is very bright and cheerful
Nyc staying at hotel across the street so booked this place out of convenience. Ordered the potato chips and blue cheese-delicious....wanted more!I had the butternut squash bucatini-not that good-was not hot and just not that much flavor. My girls had the ricotta gnocchi and the Mac and cheese-both of those were awesome. Waitress seemed to disappear-told me it was happy hour-except for the one wine I chose-totally fine but she could have told me that-then when I wanted to order another glass had to ask the runner because did not see our waitress any place-
Great service, good food. Need to reserve in advance.
My younger sister’s 32nd birthday.
Had a great evening at The Smith! Food was excellent and so was the service and atmosphere. We are in DC for the weekend and we are very glad we chose The Smith for dinner. I highly recommend!
Made an 8:30 reservation and they didn't tell me they closed at 9pm. So I took an uber all the way there and they didn't even contact me to tell me the restaurant was closing shortly after my reservation?
Great food and service. We ate outside due to pandemic so a bit of road noise but no complaints.
The dinner food was delicious and reasonably priced. The outside seating option was set up well and cozy. The waiters were attentive and pleasant.
Our waitress was great! Ordered French Toast that was nothing but bread pudding. Would not get that again.
Was real good good good good food and open and good service.
Really enjoyed eating here, the service is great and the staff is super friendly. The food and drinks is also really amazing. Will definitely be coming back!
The food has always been good, everytime I’ve gone to the Smith. It’s slightly pricey for something’s but not overly expensive. Service is good & most of the drinks I’ve tried have been good.
Very COVID safe. They make you put masks on every time a server comes to your table. Very quiet because tables are very very spread out. Way more than 6 feet in my opinion. Not the same atmosphere as before COVID but very safe and food was still good.
First time at The Smith, was there for Happy Hour and dinner. We were lucked into some great deals for oysters for a choice of three different types and good cocktails selection too.
The food was delicious. I had the Short Ribs Ragtoni and my friend ordered the Pot of Mussels with a side of fries. The service was on point and everyone was following COVID safety protocols as well. Atmosphere was great and perfect for any types of occasions, definitely will return again soon.
It was nice and the social distancing was welcoming.
I ordered the Caesar salad and oysters. The food was amazing. Not only do you get a glass bottle of water for your table when you are seated, but also a bottle of sparkling water as well. It was a nice touch. The restaurant is also very sensitive to the current Covid situation. The wait staff would not even come to the table to bring or collect anything unless you are wearing your mask. I did feel that was a bit much, but I appreciate the measure they are taking to keep their patrons and staff safe and healthy.
Everything was great. Hard to understand the staff that muffles at you to put your mask on when they approach. Otherwise food was great, service was swell, and the oysters and drink specials during happy hour were rad. Vday menu was perfect portions and delish.
Very safe and great dinner experience. Love the food and the service was spectacular.
Absolutely delightful brunch experience. Never disappointed.
Salmon with white beets, leeks, and potatoes was outstanding!
Food was very good and service was good too. Steak 🥩 was great 👍
Food was great, large portions, and the cocktails were delicious!
Due to COVID the restaurant only offered outdoor dining. For the outdoor dining there were heaters to keep you warm which did an OK job (it was 32 degrees). I had the short rib rigatoni, it was great. My boyfriend had the salmon and a salad. Both were very good. The service was also great.
The outdoor dining was nice especially because of the thermal heated lamps.
I went here before covid and had a great experience. But I went back Jan and I guess due to covid rh
They should take notes from NY one. Could be cleaner too.
We were there on New Years Eve and the server was clearly disinterested in the affair, just short of rude.
The outdoor set up was not the nicest.
Very disappointed don’t go there waist of money.
Food was excellent, but our waitress, unfortunately, needed more customer service training
The constant pulling masks up and down was very unpleasant. We provided a contact tracing information. Please start taking temperatures. Guest shouldn’t need to put their mask on while they are sitting at a table being served. I will not recommend dining here until the pandemic is over. We were supporting a friend that is currently fighting cancer, a very special occasion.
They are definitely socially distancing the tables and this was very enjoyable.
Staff was excellent, friendly and very knowledgeable. The food was excellent. Highly recommend the french toast for breakfast / brunch.
The fact that we have to constantly put our masks on and off while eating is extremely annoying
The Smith always has excellent service and foods. I have been there several times for important lunches. The only negative has sometimes been the noise level with the table spacing all the tile. This time with their excellent placement of tables due to the virus the noise level was almost quiet. It was wonderful in every way. Thank you!
We appreciated the extra precautions due to covid. The service was stellar and food was delicious.
It was a nice restaurant with a cool views and is very spacious for safe distancing dining.
I was ecstatic to reserve a table for Thanksgiving and was sadly disappointed once seated. The food was subpar, bland and the sides came out burnt. The only dish I can say was okay is the main dish in which I purchased the carved Turkey/Garlic Mash with Sautéed Spinach. I thought with the subpar meal received, we can at least enjoy dessert and sadly I was mistaken. The caramelized apple compote Ice Cream was subpar and there was if any apples in it at all. I have eaten here in the past and was truly shocked at the lack luster. We all agreed that next time we would rather cook our own dishes instead of spending money out for a meal :/.
