Located at the historic Belmont Hotel in the Oak Cliff neighborhood of Dallas, SMOKE is a back-to-basics restaurant with a giant wood-burning stove at its heart, which churns out most of the menu. Nearly everything is made in-house from sausages, sauces, pickles and breads to wood-infused spirits and aged batch cocktails. Seared scallops, grilled quail and bricked Cornish hen share equal space on the SMOKE menu with big flavor smoked meats. Lauded as "one of the most interesting and important restaurants in the city" by The Dallas Morning News and named as "One of the Top Plates in America" by Food and Wine Magazine, SMOKE is laying the ground for a new approach to cooking and dining.

    It is really hard to make excuses for a place that takes an hour to deliver cold food. Every plate at the table was room temperature at best.

    We normally have great service and food. No longer carry fresh squeezed OJ? Not sure how you make a mimosa without it. Service was slow. Food was not up to par. We love Smoke but this was definitely an off day.

    Food was good, service was lacking a bit. We had dinner for 10 people and I think the waitress was fairly new and a bit uncertain. Drinks took forever and food came in waves and some members of our party were served after others were finished eating.

    Skip it. Dallas has far better options. You'll see that I rarely write reviews. SMOKE deserves a warning sign. First, taking The Big Rib off the menu was a huge mistake. It was the only reason to prioritize SMOKE over other restaurants. Really, without The Big Rib as a reliable option - this SMOKE is nothing special. It offers nothing special. The ambiance is nothing special. In fact, it was a disappointment. The grilled ribs were ordinary at best. The chef SO overdid the bechamel in the macaroni and cheese that the dish was a bland, cheesy noodle mess. Salt and pepper didn't help. I don't consider myself a foodie but this was barely palatable. I paid $23 for three bites of underwhelming ribs and two attempts by the kitchen at drippy macaroni and cheese. I visited this restaurant in 2015 and it was The meal was SO good the first night, that I returned for the same meal the very next night. Imagine my disappointment when I returned this year.

    The food was good according to my family. I never got to eat because they messed up my order then 20 minutes after my family was eating they brought a double pork chop that was raw inside. The waitress was kind and apologetic but the female manager was rude and unapologetic. She asked me " what do you want me to?" I was shocked and upset.

    I attended Smoke for Thanksgiving and their plate was amazing! They offered a choice of meat and all their sides for a great value of just $30. The service was fantastic and the ambiance perfect for a restaurant meal on a special holiday.

    Great place every time I've been there. We usually get the BBQ board for 2 and it easily feeds three. Need to order some side vegetables because the BBQ board is meat centric. The pickled vegetables with the BBQ board are outstanding. The beer that the waiter recommended was incredible. Everything was great.

    This was our first time, and I can't believe that we waited this long to try Smoke. Each of us had a different meal, and each of us raved about our selection. The blueberry pancakes were the thickest I've ever had (truly pan-cakes) and delicious. My husband loved the smoked brisket and cornbread hash, and he's hard to please. The vibe is very friendly, comfortable and welcoming to all. We'll be back for sure!!

    We have always enjoyed Smoke but had not been there in awhile. Having family visit seemed like a good time to return. But I was disappointed that the menu was so much smaller than before. No cabrito. No fish. Our meals were good but not what we intended to have.
