I go here all of the time. Tried the chicken pot pie for the first time. Loved it. Another thing that’s nice is you can easily get there by metro and not have to deal with parking.
Nice experience. During this time of Covid 19, people are nervous to eat out. The Smith felt very comfortable. Plenty of space between tables and staff with proper personal protection equipment. We were greeted by Shawn. He was very professional and happy. We worked with Jordan. She had great recommendations and did an outstanding job. The staff in general is very attentive. Much appreciated!
Great food! I do wish the waitress had been more attentive, especially considering the restaurant had few diners.
Great service. Ask for Jannette, she was great. Food was superb, compliments to the chef. Will eat here again 9/10
Wonderful experience! It was my first time going out to brunch in 6 months! Great job with practicing social distancing while delivering exceptional service! I’ll be back again soon!
It was just ok. We would ask our water for more water or drinks. He would come back to check up on us and then remember to bring what we asked for. I think we were one of 3 tables he was helping.
Everything here is decent. Cute place, some good options on the menu, solid service (drinks took awhile in a not crowded restaurant but the waitstaff were great). It’s definitely overpriced, especially for a chain. 3 of us had a 3/4 drinks and split 2 appetizers and it was over $200 not including tip.
I would definitely recommend getting the hot fudge Sunday. It was amazing and had a full waffle cone on the top. Also, the resturant had some mosquitos so make sure to put on big spray.
Profession service and exceptional food at a reasonable price.
I’ve been really impressed with the brunch the last couple times we’ve gone. Solid service, solid food, will come back again.
Our server, Matt, was amazing! Food was perfect!
Sat outdoor. Happy hour specials were very reasonable. Service was great, sat at our reservation time and did not wait long for our food. Overall good experience, food taste great as well!
Outdoor seating was perfect. The smith steak n eggs was great and the mac n cheese good!
Everything was super yummy. 1st time diner and I will return. Assortment of cocktails to choose, my main veggie sizzling rice bowl was fantastic, and we split a caramel chocolate dessert. Clean and stylish ambiance.
Great time with great friends. Good food and good energy. Our servers were amazing, prompt, and professional!
Brunch was delicious. It was money well spent. I would return here again.
One of the best lunches I ever had! A great selection of food and drinks and the wait staff were phenomenal!
Absolutely AMAZING! Food, drinks, service was stellar. Thank you so much! We will be back!
We had brunch here for the first time. It was on a busy Sunday morning and three people joined our party unexpectedly. I was impressed they were able to seat all 11 of us at such a busy day. The service was amazing and the food was delicious. Everything came right on time and everyone handled challenges very professionally. Definitely recommend!
Great for families or dinner/drinks with friend. Wonderful attentive servers make the experience an added plus!
Came here for the first time for a friend's birthday brunch, and I was impressed. The service was great - friendly and hospitable. The food was great value for money, with the added bonus of it tasting wonderful! The ambiance was my idea of a perfect DC brunch spot: natural lighting, clean decor, and relaxed ambiance. Would definitely recommend to a friend! I will be returning as soon as possible.
Great food for brunch!
This was our 3rd visit to the Smith. Service was not good at all. Salads arrived wrong, had to ask for drink refill. $8 for an order of fries is ridiculous, even for DC. Wont be returning anytime soon.
They have the best pancakes I’ve ever had. The serving size is outrageous, but the food is good. You will have leftovers.
Amazing service and food. The French 75 slushy and mussels and fries were to die for. I’ll definitely be back!
Restaurant was so cute, the Old Cubano was realllyyyy good!!!! The food was subpar! Great place for drinks and oysters! Oh! And I’m sure the fries are great.
Always amazing food, great service and good ambiance! I bit too loud sometimes - but perfect before going out for a party / drinks, if that’s vibe you’re going for!
It wasn't a great showing. Drinks too 30 minutes to arrive, the appetizers came AFTER the meal, and the Pot Pie was full of bones.
very good time for dinner - excellently cooked steak, super yummy cookies for dessert -hot out of the oven!
Portion sizes are just right - full and no doggie bags.
It was wonderful! I met my friend here for dinner and loved it, as always. Great service. Very loud but we were in a back corner thank god.
Was very disappointed that waiter steered us to an $85 carafe of wine. The whole conversation about it was wrong and we felt mislead in a fairly significant way.
I brought a party of 12 for a birthday brunch, and we had a wonderful experience! The waitstaff were speedy, courteous, and even brought out our cake with candles without being asked. Thanks to The Smith for a great day!
Great brunch food!
Dinner with a friend after yoga. Food and service were both outstanding. Noise level was very high.
We've been here for brunch and it was great, not so great this time for dinner. The food was just meh, not great presentation or taste and definitely not hot. Disappointed after ordering our drinks, our server came back to tell us they were out of ingredients for the drink I wanted, but she couldn't say which ingredients they were missing...
Our server was fairly new and hadn't eaten most of the menu, so she couldn't advise us on how to order. Also she delivered another table's drinks and picked up dirty glasses and then put them on the same tray with our drinks... definitely a no no.
She was nice enough but clearly not well trained.
I had a party of 18 at The Smith on a busy weekend. We had a great table, two awesome waitresses and delicious food! Many people were there for the first time and commented it was the best dinner they had had in a long time.
Susan was an excellent server. Love the kale salad with kale. Disappointed that we did not get booth seating as we had requested when we reserved a week ago.
Made a reservation only a day before, got the exact time I wanted for lunch, walked right in and sat down, really friendly service that was very sensitive to the allergy needs of our table, great ambience and not too loud, and the food was excellent. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
