    The salads and the burger are great! The service was fantastic! It is just too noisy for 2 o’clock on a Sunday. We understand that some people love noisy places.

    We love everything about The Smith except the noise level, which is exceedingly loud for us. Every surface in the space is hard, reflecting and amplifying the acoustic level. What you describe as “energetic” I would describe as near-deafening. Part of the pleasure of eating out is conversing with the rest of your party. It’s impossible to do that here without nearly shouting.

    They ran out of hummus at it was 1:00pm. They didn’t have ham for the eggs Benedict and the English muffin was stale. Very disappointed

    Everything was perfect. The food was delicious. It was lovely to eat outside–way quieter than inside and warm enough with the heaters. The best thing was the service. We were catching up with an old, dear friend and we had a lot to talk about. We were never rushed, but the food and drinks seemed to arrive exactly when we wanted them.

    The Smith is great in several ways. It has a varied menu, a lively fun ambiance, and friendly service. In the past, we've have also thought the food was very good. This time, two us of got the salmon and both servings were very much overcooked (and also tiny). Other dishes were not as bad but were just okay. Hope this was an off-night.

    Outstanding wait staff. High quality food delivered promptly. Having gone to multiple locations for years I had one bad experience during a holiday period which, when informed, the management responded in a way that made me feel I meant something as a customer. Happy to go back and find all working like a charm again.

    Our server was amazing, very attentive, and kept our drinks flowing. They had a moderate pace in checking up which means you can enjoy your meal without being interrupted. The food came pretty quick and was delicious. Highly recommend this place. I always end up going back when I’m in the area.

    Food was delicious, service was very attentive and sensitive, as as one order of eggs arrived over cooked and was quickly replaced and even offered at no cost. The ambience is quite fun and lovely, though as the whole room is tiled, it is quite loud

    Birds kept landing on the table, coffee took over 20 minutes to arrive, poached eggs were more like boiled eggs. Generally a great brunch spot, but not this time.

    The food was the highlight. My husband asked for med-well steak and got mostly well, it was still seasoned perfectly. The mussels were out of this world. Also a lot of gluten free options, and were very knowledgeable/safe about it. Only downfall, I made this rez in advance (only for 2, 11pm) and got the crappiest table in the place. Tiny round table in the middle of a BUSY walkway..squished btwn multiple 4 tops with only couples at them. Annoying, but we were hungry after the opera. Barely fit all our food/ drinks on the table, no place to hang a purse.. just hope it doesn't fall onto the dirty ground from back of a cramped chair.

    They need to do a better job of protecting their tables from the cold air coming in from the door constantly being opened and closed. I literally had to wear my coat and hat inside. It was ridiculous.

    Overall good but noisy. Burgers cooked as requested. Fortunately we asked for the bacon and onion jam on the side. It was mushy with only a hint of bacon. It would not have gone very well with their TBS sauce, an aioli sauce.

    The smith is always a great dining option and the food never fails to satisfy. This was our first time at Lincoln center location and it was a little too jam packed for us (we were sat at a single table in a corner with barely any space between us and the table next to us, made for awkward dining). Other than the seating, the food and the service were great!
