    Modern and stylish NY City restaurant with varied food and drink selection. Everything we ordered was delicious, and service was friendly and efficient. They gave us a free dessert because we had mentioned in the booking that it was my daughter's birthday. Highly recommend!

    The Smith is wonderful ambience.. delicious food and a lively atmosphere without being LOUD. Both still and sparkling water brought to the table, not something that happens every day. A very complete menu! You will love this place.

    I’ve eaten here several times and advise you stick to basic/classic food like eggs and burgers and fries. On busy holiday Monday at noon I ordered the Caesar salad with salmon. The salmon was fine, but the salad was not cold and was limp and rubbery like it was just left out sitting on a counter. Salads are not cheap today and we should expect better and not settle for less.

    The food was excellent. The best gnocchi I’ve had outside of Italy and the potato chips with bleu cheese fondue were incredible. Drink selection (including nonalcoholic) was good. It was noisy but not so much that we couldn’t hear each other, but we did have to speak up. The service was okay.

    Great dining experience. Space is bright and airy and diners weren’t crowded together. The food has improved although the burger I ordered wasn’t that great. It’s just my preference that my. Urged not be piled on with the lettuce, tomatoes and pickles. I prefer on the side. But my friend had the shrimp tagliatelle and it was amazing!! The max and cheese starter is also a must-try.

    New Year’s Eve dinner reservations- The meal was the best I’ve had, anywhere, ever. The ambience was beautiful. The service was attentive, even on the busiest night of the year. This will now be my go-to whenever I’m in the city. I seriously can’t rave enough, and will recommend to everyone I know.

    Made a reservation for NYE but apparently they overbooked because there were no available tables for a lot of people that reserved. The host said people paid and sat at the table for 3 hours and did not leave. If this is not the restaurant’s first time doing NYE, they should know better. A lot of people come out on NYE to eat because they want to celebrate NYE at a restaurant. They shouldn’t have booked so many tables. The only thing the host said was my hands are tied & no ETA on a table. We finally had to sit outside which is not at all what we wanted. And also, it took really long for our starters to arrive. We are willing to pay $75 for the food and the ambience but we did not get the food on time or the ambience at all. Do not recommend this restaurant if you want to come in on a busy day. Who knows if they’ll overbook again and made you wait extensively for a table you reserved.

    Fuimos mi familia a pasar la cena de Nochevieja, la comida y el servicio de los camareros muy buena. En cambio no nos gustó para nada que durante los postres el dueño del local nos acercó la cuenta sin haberla pedido e insinuándonos que nos teníamos que levantar para dejar la mesa libre porque había gente esperando. Cómo se puede esperar le dijimos que nos parecía muy mal ese detalle ya que eran las 23:45 y queríamos festejar el año nuevo. El dueño se disculpó y se marchó a preguntar lo mismo a otras mesas.

    We had booked a table at 21:15 and when we got there we were asked to wait for a table to be free. After 15 minutes, we sat down at a table in which we kept getting the cold breeze from the outside as people didn’t stop opening the door. We asked a waiter if he could tell people to make a decision and wait outside or inside and he said he couldn’t do anything about it.

    Went for the NYE Prix Fixe menu which included a champagne toast at midnight. Our reservation was for 9pm and we thought we would stay till midnight, but they definitely overbooked and were trying to turn over tables as quickly as possible, so we ended up leaving early and did not get to take advantage of the toast. The appetizers were very good, the entrees were good, and the dessert was meh. Thankfully our hostess was great and made our experience enjoyable.

    The food, atmosphere and service on New Year's Eve were outstanding. I expected no less from The Smith. Especially memorable and delicious were the gnocchi, salmon tartar and salmon. With The Smith, the combination of delicious food with a vibrant, upscale yet simultaneously relaxed atmosphere always makes it a welcome restaurant destination, not just for special events.

    Can’t give you a review because we did not stay to eat. They had a special New Year’s Eve menu which had limited choices so we decided to eat elsewhere. Normally their food, service and ambience are 5 Star
