The atmosphere, which I relly like, is up scale east coast urban. From the welcome at the hostess desk to the end of the meal, all interactions with Smitty's team are professional and pleasant. Of course, the food is great. For value, you cannot beat the several standard specials that are very moderately priced. The chicken pot pie is amazing. This place is a winner - which may be why Smitty's is so popular.

Always love eating at Smitty's. Shrimp cocktail is awesome! Had the trout the other night and it was very good. Only disappointment is that they took liver and onions off the menu except for the first weekend of the month. I am from CT so I think they should have it every FR, SAT, SUN. Sand dabs are also tasty.

I love the chicken pot pie and this time, it was the best I've had... the taste was excellent and there was more chicken. Always love the crispy crust! The champagne was excellent. Loved our dinner!

Smitty's has a great lunch menu as well as dinner. We spent three hours there because you aren't rushed to eat. You can have your cocktails and/or wine with an appetizer then order your dinner. Their menu has delicious comfort food and daily specials. I recommend this restaurant for any occasion.

Came here Saturday to celebrate Valentines Day early. Food was good and our server was attentive but, it was just way too loud. We could barely hear each other. Probably because we got seated by the bar even though it was 5:20 and the restaurant was half empty.

No one said anything when we left, even the waiter who was right behind us as we opened the front door on the way out. A simply thank you would have been nice after spending over $150 on dinner. I doubt we will ever come back.

I would eat here every night and every meal if I could. Smitty’s never ever disappoints. The food is spectacular. Every single thing I have ever tried. The service is fabulous from the hostess to the wait staff. I love the ambiance young and lively but not trendy. It’s the best of what Pasadena has to offer. I love it here!

Disappointed with the stroganoff (shouldn’t the noodles be premium quality and al dente?) and chicken pot pie (watery and tasteless) Had to ask for bread - which is the very BEST anywhere. Shrimp cocktail was beautifully presented and delish.

Smitty's is a major winner. Food was superb both in the restaurant and with take out later for dinner. My wife and I enjoyed at home and my friend and I loved our lunch.

Service from Taylor excellent. Host very nice. Could not be better. I wish it was closer to home, but at 60 minutes can't very often.

Thank you to all.

We had an early dinner on a Sunday, after a theatre event. The seating preferences we requested were in their computer and worked perfectly. Staff was attentive and helpful, accommodating special requests. Wine list by-the-glass choices cover a solid range of options and prices. Food was fresh and well prepared. We always enjoy Smitty’s- it’s comfortable and easy to find tasty options. It’s the perfect place when you want a delicious dinner but don’t need bleeding edge trend ingredients and preparations!

We had excellent service! Friendly, quick, fun. We had theatre tickets at CalTech at 8pm and the service we received made it easy for us to make the performance on time. I choose Smitty's Grill as it was listed on DINE LA 2018 and were given a wonderful choice of meals. We've been to this restaurant previously, and will definitely come again.

Have eaten at Smitty's Grill a number of times and the food is consistently good. Great main courses and salads. This time I had chicken piccata with asparagus and a cup of clam chowder, all excellent. It was lunch time and got a little loud but still able to hear friends talk. Really nice service, thanks!

It was a wonderful experience until the crowd built inside, whereupon it became impossible to converse in the main dining room. If I were to do it again, I’d insist on a table at the outdoor covered back patio. Nice and quiet. Suitable if weather is mild.
