 (Milwaukee)·Dined on December 10, 2017

Drinks were good but expensive

Entrees were very good in terms of taste and presentation but portions were small and prices were high.

Scallops were $26 and 2 diners ordered them. They each only got 3 scallops and they were the size of a quarter. Um, that $8.67 per scallop!!!! With no sides, everything is a la carte.
Boullaibaise was excellent but portion was small.

Good food but we all went home hungry and much lighter in the wallet

Smyth was unexpectedly great, we will absolutely go back. The food is very well done - the kitchen really knows what it's doing. My husband loved his bouillabaisse, and you must try the burrata salad which is very unusual and truly delicious. The only miss for the evening was the underdone risotto. Which was surprising since the other thing to know about this restaurant is that at least at dinnertime it's a restaurant for sitting and relaxing and chatting between courses (sometimes just a touch too long) not a restaurant where the dishes come out quickly.

I was there for Sunday Brunch, made a reservation, didn't have to, the place was maybe 5% occupied. After we sat down, it took at least 10 minutes for the waitress to show up to explain the menu and get our drink order. $33 brunch includes juice, coffee and mimosas, hot tea that I ordered was extra. Very small selection of dishes at the buffet, closer to good continental breakfast at some hotels then a brunch buffet. The food was just decent, nothing I would order again and way overpriced. I went to brunch buffets for $50-$75 and I can truly say that the quality and selection was worth it and justifiable, definitely not the case here...no wonder it was almost empty.

Although the food was presented in a wonderful fashion, the amount of food was minimal for the price. We had dined here several years ago and thought it was wonderful then. This time, it was a disappointment. My wife ordered a beet salad and got a paltry portion. She also ordered scallops and got 3 for about $26. My fillet was good, but unordinary.

The food I ordered off the scaled-back brunch menu was warm at best which was surprising because it was not busy and there were only four menu options. Specifically, the biscuits and gravy were cold and the biscuit seemed like it was not fresh or had been microwaved and was hard (not hot). Having been to brunch there at least twice in the past, the approach has been scaled back and is now more buffet-oriented. The carving station seemed the same as in the past and the chef there was great. For instance, he noticed we were celebrating someone's birthday which was acknowledged by our server. The service was not attentive and actually rude. Foe example, we were given one menu and told to share amongst 5 of us and scoffed at when we asked for more menus. For the price, we won't be back. My husband chose it for his birthday because of our past experiences and this did not live up to those.

The Brunch menu had many options and the food was hot and tasty. Especially the made to order Omelets we had. The setting in the IronHorse Hotel was perfect. Will be back.

Went for the Sunday brunch prior to attending a show. All the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Arrived 10 minutes before reservation and was seated immediately. Brunch was very good and had a number of options for most tastes. Especially enjoyed the Tiramisu pancakes. A little pricey , but, given the fact that it was pretty much all inclusive (except bar drinks), we felt we were not disappointed.

Very disappointing evening all around! I have never been served "slices" of filet (2 whole pieces) instead of a whole filet... it also had white truffle over the top, which added a sweetness to the meat - not necessary when you have a great piece of meat! Our server was not good at all and this is coming from someone who waitressed for over ten years. Management did not deal with any of the problems with our wine or food in a timely or appropriate manner.

Food at Smyth was of an unparalleled quality in a unique environment unlike any other restaurant in the city of Milwaukee. The ambiance is amazing and the food selection top notch. Everything was most professionally and tastefully presented. Smyth is highly recommended for any time you wish to dine out at a quality establishment and turn the night into a special occasion.

I had heard very good things about Symth's all you can eat brunch so we decided to give it a try. I made a reservation ahead of time and we were seated immediately. It did take a little bit for the waitress to come over a few times. The one downfall was there were apparently three bridal parties at the restaurant at the same time, when we went up to the buffet, they were out of almost everything. We mentioned it to the waitress and she informed us they were working on refilling it. The bartender was kind enough to bring us another round of mimosas on the house while we waited. We had to go check to see when it was ready as the waitress did not come over to let us know. Overall, the food was fantastic, but it would have been nice if they had kept up with the food a little better.

I first have to say that we have been to Smyth 2x prior to this night. The first was a Valentine dinner that was a special menu and the second was Christmas Eve night. Both visits were wonderful, delicious, good menu choices. This visit (9/23/17), with a group of 7 friends, was a bit disappointing. The menu was an abbreviated version of their online menu (not a big deal), but it made the choices very limited. Also, we are familiar with unique dishes with smaller portions, but we were very surprised how little food was given. Salmon--two tiny pieces of rare salmon and Scallops--3 nice scallops but nothing else really came with these items besides sauce. I did not see that these were "ala carte" or that there were sides we could order. The Bouillabaisse was wonderful and an actual meal. The beet salad was just beets, not a salad and no other choice for a salad. I really will go back for their brunch--that looks delicious!!

Great service; small portions. Don't come hungry.
Filet was not cooked to satisfaction...and served in two medallions, not one tender juicy filet...and I would skip the sauce. The salmon was served more like an appetizer. The disappointment was simply because we thought this was more of a traditional steakhouse.

Food was impeccable. Our table had the aborio, octopus, scallops, and cioppino. For dessert strawberry balsamic ice cream was good, olive oil cake with rhubarb also good although cake was perhaps a little too dense. This was a pretty critical group of people who frequently travel to major cities in Europe and the US and felt this food could stand up against anything offered anywhere. The ambiance suffered from the restaurant being fairly empty but the restaurant is comfortable and chic without being too fussy. Service needs some attention in my opinion server could not answer questions about the food, did not make us feel welcome, anything we asked seem like a chore. Rather than making us feel like guests I felt we were imposing on her enjoyment of her evening. Her assistant however was much better. Overall we would go back and hope to have a different server. If the front of the house could come up to the level of the kitchen this would be an exceptional restaurant.
