    I always have fun at The Smith restaurants. They have great comfort food and friendly staff. It is loud, and my hearing isn’t great, but I had no problem holding a conversation with my friend.

    I can always expect first rate food/service here. Always greeted with welcoming tones by the friendly (and non-patronizing!) staff when I first walk in. Noise level of a full restaurant can be deafening to sensitive ears - but noise cancelling AirPods brings it to a whisper. Aces all around 👍

    The Smith is one of our go-to's. The food is amazing every time. Tonight I had salmon with dijon lemon sauce and tuna tartare on crispy rice and they were A+. I'm also doing dry January and had a great mocktail (I've had their reg cocktails in the past though and they're always solid). The vibe is buzzy. Highly recommend.

    This was such a great experience! It was my 30th birthday celebration, and they truly made me feel special. The service was outstanding, and they went above and beyond with making sure I felt amazing. They gave us free Brussels sprouts (which were delicious), a round of Prosecco, and an ice cream sundae with a candle! Thank you so much. It truly made my night :)

    I celebrated my birthday at The Smith and had a wonderful time! The last time I was at the restaurant our waiter seemed to be urging us to leave quickly which made the experience less enjoyable but I gave it another chance for my birthday and it was a much more enjoyable experience. My friends and I all left happy with the food and ambiance.

    Great place to visit for either lunch or dinner - great service. The Smith has probably the best mac & cheese in NYC and plenty of other great options. The only negative thing I can say about the East Village location was that it was pretty dark. I had to squint just to see what the menu says.
