Amazing brunch service for two families with three toddlers! We can’t wait to go back!
Food was delivered cold and for people who ordered steak, it was not prepared as asked and had to be sent back. Waiter did not visit the table with any frequency and had to ask for him to take away dirty dishes several times. Very disappointed with this specific visit compared to the many other times I dined at The Smith.
The restaurant was so noisy that u couldn’t hold a conversation. Thankfully we sat outside without a heater. Got a little chilly. If you’re going to offer high prices for the food you better offer heaters for everyone.
There weren’t many people so I think the server was antsy. Our pace of dinner felt rushed.
The food is really good but there were some service challenges like everywhere these days. It is really crowded for Sunday brunch so don't bother going without a reservation.
Great and attentive service from Joseph! Was able to accommodate us indoors when the rain began.
Terrible service. Slow and not attentive servers.
It was great. Everything about our experience was fantastic. Would recommend
Definitely one of my best lunch experiences in DC
Horrible service! The server would not come check on us, we had to flag her down once over the course of two hours. Never got more water either. Horrible.
Great food! Waitress was great and service was good. Huge steaks with plenty of French fries. Drinks are a little pricey. Overall a great place!
Cocktail was great, service was quick and helpful, food was delicious
Food and service was great. I will go again.
Great meal! We’ll be back.
Everything is very good! Except, perhaps, the prices - particularly for alcohol which just feels like gouging a little bit. The service was good, but like other establishments, you can expect additional wait times as they struggle with staffing. Our waitress was scrambling and apologetic -we get it.
Rob, our server, was great! The food was delicious! Just the right portion for a Sunday brunch. Will return!
We went for brunch to celebrate our son's graduation and the food and drink were outstanding! Everyone should try the Vanilla Challah French Toast with the caramelized bananas! And, the French 75 Slushie was a perfect complement. I'd recommend The Smith for any occasion.
Great food and service!
Good food, fast service, and good drink combinations!
Went for brunch with my family to celebrate graduation. Our waiter was excellent and the foods was delicious. No bottomless option but all the brunch entrees came with a brunch cocktail included. Standout item was the French toast. Definitely coming back!
The wait staff and management was exceptional. My daughter didn’t like her meal. It was substituted immediately
Great spot for a friends dinner on a Friday night. Lively atmosphere, tasty food and delicious cocktails. I will definitely be going back.
Waited more than 30 minutes for our reservation. Service pretty slow. But nice people. Seemed overwhelmed.
We had a great lunch but inside the restaurant was uncomfortably cold so it was hard to ignore. Our server, Tanzania, was great and kept our cups filled with hot tea. Food was delicious.
I joined a few friends for a early Happy Hour hang. The food was delicious I recommend the wings and those jalapeno grits!!!
Staff was responsive and friendly.
Great service, delicious omelet and salad, spacing good and large bar
The food and service was great. HOWEVER...major problems! Our group of 4 ate outside closely sandwiched between two other tables. Throughout the meal we had to deal with aggressive street people begging for money & food and selling some kind of "tickets". Towards the end of the meal, one beggar was so aggressive he would not leave until we gave him a full meal that we had planned to take home with us. And then he insisted on a bag to carry it in! Also, throughout the meal we had to deal with extremely loud hyped-up mortorcycle-type vehicles repeatedly going up and down the street doing wheelies. The final straw was the huge group of motorcycles that drove by (dozens). Conversation was almost impossible and the exhaust fumes at a choking level. We've eaten at outdoor cafes/restaurants all over the world and never had such a poor experience as this one. We've lived in Logan Circle for several decades and have enjoyed eating at The Smith several times. But that was inside. Outside, not so much. Never again. Our birthday celebration was a bust.
Always wish DC weren’t so expensive, but the food was great, portions were generous, and the staff was kind and attentive.
Great food for manageable pricing. Amazing ability to move around reservations easily.
It was ok, the food and the service were good. Don't expect much and you won't be disappointed
Well made food, fun drinks and you can't beat their French 75 slushies!!
Good was awful. Unseasoned Mac and cheese and a shoe leather steak “medium” steak. Smith is on my blacklist now.
The food was great but the service was not good. Our waiter only had 4 tables including ours and we had to wait almost 10 minutes before he came and took our order, extremely frustrating. The brunch cocktails were great but, the other cocktails were a struggle for the bartender. The Manhattan had way too much vermouth and a simple old fashioned cam to the table red in color( definitely not an old fashioned). Overall the food was great but stick to the brunch cocktails when ordering.
I love the Smith. I’ve been for both brunch and dinner several times. Food is always great and service alway on point. The Gatsby is my go-to drink, and the wings are fancy superb. Def not a cheap restaurant, but with it. Tried the desserts for the first time last night - toffee dessert and warm cookie were delish.
Delicious lobster roll, steak, macaroni and cheese. Service was perfect. I had to leave for work at a specific time, the server made sure we had all our food and our check well before that time.
The service was very disappointing. We were seated in the back corner of a mostly empty restaurant and then forgotten or ignored for most of our stay. Other tables seated after us got better service and dined and left while we were still waiting for basic service. The food was fine (very DC - appetizing but expensive), but based on our experience I doubt I'll return.
Nice place. Good food. Will come back to try brunch.
Beautiful space. Terrific service. Good food. Lively neighborhood.
Brianna was amazing!!!! We came
To have dinner and drinks before heading to the Emily King concert. She made sure our experience was seamless from beginning to end! A great night!!!
Celebrated a friend’s birthday at The Smith last evening. It was a wonderful dining experience. For starters we enjoyed the wings so much we ordered a second order to go. I had the lobster roll which was full of lobster and seasoned to perfection. It was pricey but worth it. My friend had the sea bass which she raved over. We shared the Mediterranean salad, also delish. The birthday girl got a surprise at the end, a warm blueberry cobbler with lemon sorbet that we shared. The place is nice retreat from the hustle and bustle of U street. We originally had a reservation to dine al fresco but because of the heat dined inside, so glad we did
