    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.

    While I think The Smith is always a good idea and the food consistently good, the service yesterday was appalling. Had it been my first time there I would definitely not recommend it to anyone.

    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!

    The management staff was amazing! This location is always packed and on the day of my reservation they were running behind. We got seated about 30 min past my reservation, which was honestly understandable with how busy they were and where it looked like they had some parties that were done that were just not leaving. So of course not the restaurants fault. But they made up for it regardless! They sat us down and brought out two appetizers on the house and were so apologetic! It’s so refreshing to see that a restaurant still maintains core values of providing excellent customer service. I was honestly shocked to even get an apology. I’ve been to this location multiple times and I will continue to come back because of the service.

    Ate outside and there were only four heaters formerly there were more. Also perimeter heaters were not working. Also wine bottle prices have increased much more than inflation. 60$ bottles became 90$. Food was good.

    Great drinks and food. Great service. The only complaint is that it was very cold due to the door opening non stop. We had to keep our coats on while eating, and the diners around us did the same thing. A temporary vestibule outside the doors would fix this small issue.

    Way too busy, but, even so, the service was great, and the food was good. BUT it was uncomfortably cold sitting inside the restaurant. Not that pleasant an experience. Maybe try again when the weather is warmer.
