We love the The Smith and visit 3-4 times a month. Always great value, excellent food (especially brunch!), coffees, and cocktails. The menu is diverse and well executed, the staff always friendly and helpful. We are trying to eat at ALL their many Manhattan locations! See you again soon!

Second time coming to this place and I can't wait to return! Had their incredible mac and cheese which is always a hit. We also tried the sea bass with chickpeas and poached mussels, which was DELICIOUS and filling. The staff is very friendly and made great recommendations.

Brunch with teenagers. Friendly service. First time we were offered still and sparkling water free to the table. I had poached eggs with bacon and home fries. Delicious. Son had huge portion of french toast, which he almost managed, and daughter had avocado toast, also almost managed it. Really nice atmosphere.

This was a random find for me. I was planning a bachelor party for my best friend and needed to find a restaurant with reservations for 15 people. That could also accommodate various food tastes and vegetarians. That also wasn’t a $$$$. On a Friday night. I looked at the menus and it looked promising so I booked it. About 6 weeks out. And holy cow was I blown away. The food was outstanding. Everyone raves about it and was super happy. They had a great selection, but not too overwhelming where you question how fresh could it be haha. And they had a great selection of drinks and mixed cocktails. I was totally blown away. And we ended up being 1 short, so we were a party of 14. And everyone got an appetizer, a main course and an alcoholic beverage. The total was under $800 before tip. And the service was great. Very pleasant staff all around. So we left a nice tip. But still to get all that for 14 people, for under 1G tip included was outstanding. Highly recommended!!

A group of 9 of us were seated in a cosy section of the restaurant. We received tremendous service from a charming and patient waiter. The food was efficiently delivered tasted great and did not break the bank. All in all a great experience especially for a NY restaurant where it’s either too noisy, too expensive or too dirty. This was none of the above, and quite the opposite.

I love this place - the food is always consistently EXCELLANT - love the atmosphere is every location.
Noise level is high - but that is because they do a booming business. This is a MUST whether you live in NY or are visiting - Great food, great drinks, GREAT FUN!

I love the smith. Everything was delicious and out waitress was very attentive, even noticing it was someone's birthday (based on that were given a gift) and brought out ice cream for her at the end of the meal. It doesn't matter if you come here for brunch, lunch or dinner, you will not be disappointed.

As always, excellent food and service!

However, the table of 12 ten year olds left to scream as loud as they want with no adult supervision was not a positive part of the experience.

We had a great experience. Second time there. made a reservation through Open Table and we were seated promptly. Our meals were delicious and our server, Samantha, was attentive and took care of us. She made great recommendations and pointed out that substitutions could be made. Would definitely recommend The Smith to everyone. Looking forward to our next visit.

The food was great - well prepared and tasty and the atmosphere was lovely. However, we had to wait a little bit for our coffees and when it arrived the cups had coffee stains on it and there were unequal amounts of coffee in the cups. This was a bit disappointing and took away from a nice breakfast-date mood, but the food was so good that our mood was quickly restored. Would definitely recommend this place to a friend, although, would advise them to stay away from cappuccinos.

Always love our meals at a The Smith, but the staff was particularly accommodating of our group with a baby. We were seated in an area that was great for like comfort and a bit away from other diners so I felt like we weren't as much of a disruption for them.

I booked a table for 10 for my birthday a few weeks ago and there were some last minute changes and cancellations (life happens!) and the receptionists and managers were so helpful and accommodating! I wish that the waitress came around a bit more (we were waiting for drinks and water refills for a while) but everyone’s food came out tasty and the way they wanted it so that’s what mattered :)
