Service was good. The food was served right away. We loved the vibes of the restaurant. We tried the bone marrow and toast for our small plates, it was quite delicious. Perfect for a dinner for two or with group of friends!

Usually have a great visit, food is amazing as always. Not sure if they just had an off Sunday, but with our noon seating, we did not receive our meals until 1:00pm, which we thought was unusual for Smith.

I ordered the eggs Benedict, medium, but unfortunately the eggs were far less than medium. One of them not edible, it was still slimy. I didn’t complain, but the mess on the plate was very unappetizing. In addition to the eggs there was hash browns and a couple of pieces of fruit. No toast. I left hungry but it was my first visit. I will likely try again.

My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here.
Food was looked and tasted fantastic and the dishes decently priced.
The area we were seated was nicely lit, not too bright and not too dark giving a romantic feel.
The service from waitress was very good.

This experience started out on the right foot. The chef prepared a combined charcuterie and cheese plate that was fantastic. Also the Caesar salad was really good. My wife ordered gnocchi which was excellent. I ordered the farro risotto which was not. I didn't know that farro was such a firm grain even when cooked, but this bordered on crunchy. I was told by my server that it is to be expected with farro. I don't make a habit of sending food back, but I did on this occasion. The server apologized and took it back. She offered to get me something else which I declined, so it was removed from the bill. Overall the service was good, the farro risotto should have had a better explanation on the menu or by the server. This place is really short on value; the items noted above plus two cocktails, two 6 oz glasses of wine and two espressos was $127 before tip, after the risotto removed from the bill. That's just too much for what we had. If we had stopped at the cheese/meat platter and a couple of cocktails I would be raving about this place.

Took a long time for the server to come over after we were seated. Apps and dinner were served very close together so felt a bit rushed. Apps were ok. 3/4 in our group enjoyed dinner. The one who didn’t had the risotto. Sides were really good. Had broccolini, truffle fries and mashed potatoes for the table. Dessert took over 30 mins to come out. When we inquired what was taking so long were told there was a large group that they were trying to get food out for. For $400 will be going somewhere else next time. Wasn’t wowed.

My husband and I went to try out SMITH. We were pleasantly surprised by the ambience and service. However, any food placed in the cast iron plate, tastes like iron... We lost our appetite.. For a restaurant placed in the heart of Winnipeg, in a beautiful location, we were very disappointed..

Everything was good all in all. We came at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday night for supper post MTC.
We ordered drinks but the waitress took our food orders at the same time, which I didn't like. I like to
have a drink before dinner. I told her this, but she brought one of our group a salad before he received
his beer. When she brought my wine, I had to say please don't bring my supper right away. To me, this
is basic restaurant "101". She complied with this request, but I was surprised I had to tell her. In that sense,
we felt rushed and "out of sync". Otherwise, the ambiance was great and my halibut outstanding. I wanted
to have supper here, as my son has booked Smith for his wedding next October!

Alexa was absolutely amazing. Friendly, interesting, attentive, and considerate. The noise level in the centre of the dining room was too loud as we are back to back to a large party. It would’ve been better had they asked us and told us a large party was coming in. The food was spectacular we have the hamburger and the Pickrell wine reasonable coffee delicious in-service absolutely impeccable
We were late and they hung onto our table. We had a reservation at HARTH but they said we only had two hours and felt rushed even before we will arriveD so we cancelled and went to Smith

Catch of the day was steel head we got halibut. Too much sauce on the flank steak. The beet salad dressing was different. We shared the salad but still far too much. Service was good. We will come back. They let me park my Ferrari out front . There was no parking anywhere. There was a special event at the forks.

The food was fresh and delicious, creatively plated on boards which was perfect for sharing between the two of us. Server was very friendly and attentive! We were celebrating an Anniversary, however we weren’t asked if we were out for a celebration - since I chose that option when making the reservation I was surprised the host never said anything about it.

It certainly isn’t the hype that I’ve heard prior. We had brunch and the eggs Benedict was poor. Cheap on the hollandaise sauce as there was a little dribble on the egg. With the parking expense and the quality of our meal - I would not recommend it to anyone. Maybe an off Sunday but hey, Sunday’s are brunch days!

This is such a good restaurant. The service was amazing, friendly and prompt. The food was great. I would have liked it if the main course came with at least one side dish instead of paying separately. I would definitely recommend and will be going again.

It was extremely loud and the dining area we were seated in was not even full. There must be something wrong with the acoustics or something. I could barely hear the person across the table from me and I have good hearing. The food was just ok. We ordered lots of small bites and they were just fine. Not outstanding, which I would expect for the price.

We had excellent service. The ambience was exactly what we were looking for, however we found the chairs to have a small back making them uncomfortable for the 3 hour dinner we had. My Husband's steak was mediocre, however my friends husband's lamb was exquisite.
Overall, I would recommend.

This was my second time at SMITH after visiting in January for a bachelorette party dinner. The server I had was very lovely and always filled our glasses whenever they were running low. (You guys should try using bigger glasses so your poor servers aren't constantly grabbing a new water bottle to fill the cups!)

It was a Sunday afternoon and I went with my boyfriend to celebrate my new job off. The food was great and sated my cravings. Will definitely visit again when another special occasion arises as I am interested in trying the whole menu. (Everyone sounds so delicious!)

We took my mom here as a part of her surprise birthday party night. We had to get her in and out of the restaurant within a certain timeframe, in order to make it to her surprise party at the end of the night. The staff were excellent in helping us get through our meal on time, without her even knowing!
On another note, our server was super helpful in finding something on the menu for everyone, including those of us with dietary restrictions.
Overall, an excellent experience and night!
