    Another lovely evening at The Smith! Our meal was delicious as usual, our servers were attentive, and the guest in our party with multiple food allergies was accommodated with care. The kind of experience that keeps us coming back for more!

    This was my second time dining at The Smith. The first time was at the Lincoln Square location. It was enjoyable enough that I didn’t hesitate to make Thanksgiving dinner reservations on our recent NYC visit. This was not as enjoyable of an experience. We were seated late, the booth that we were led to had just been seated by walk-in guests, so we waiting another 5 minutes to be sat a what should have been a 1-person table with chairs that were literally falling apart (mine was missing a screw and I had to trade it out when another table vacated). My appetizer salad was so gritty that it could not be eaten, though no one ever came by for me to voice the issue with (nor did we see our waiter again until he brought our check). The remained of the food was entirely mediocre. I was really looking forward to the Brussels sprouts side, but was let down when they arrived covered in grainy mustard, something that was not disclosed on the menu and would have definitely influenced my decision to make the reservation in the first place. And, though no fault of the restaurant, the table beside us treated their dinner as a private photo shoot with their cocktails, complete with flash on, making the dining experience distracting. Just a disappointing visit overall.

    It was amazing. We’re from Europe and wanted to experience a traditional thanksgiving dinner. The smith was perfect and checked all our boxes! Delicious food and great people. However, a traditional gimlet is better than the lychee gimlet they serve hehe.

    Great atmosphere, pleasant and helpful service. Music could be heard amidst the voices. I went for thanksgiving I’m usually traditional but it was festive and the food choices were great, I had turkey pot pie which had a good flavor. I would go back for service and the atmosphere, I would recommend this restaurant.

    Excellent 3 course Thanksgiving menu. Some of us had the short ribs and others the traditional turkey breast with sides. Nice to have so many options for the starter, main course and dessert. The sides were delicious. The Thanksgiving Cocktail drink was the perfect accompaniment. Thank you for being open so that we visitors from out of state could enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving Day meal.

    Thanksgiving dinner, wonderfully executed by The Smith! Outstanding menu options, all three people in our party thought all courses were delicious! Excellent option for those unable (or unwilling) to prepare a Thanksgiving feast!!! Will become a regular spot for us.

    There is a reason why The Smith is so popular (good value, good service) so expect loud ambiance and (well-behaved) drunk brunchers if you go on a Sunday, mid-day.

    Ambience was nice, service was also fine (a bit inattentive but nothing too egregious). In true American fashion, the portions are needlessly huge. I just don’t get it. NO ONE needs to eat this much as a serving. I get that apps might be to share but you need to be at least 4 people for those to make sense. Maybe that’s how they justify the price. To be clear, the food was solid. It was well executed. But I will not return as the portion size are not for me and I’m not a fan of leftovers and even less of a fan of wasted food.

    This was the first ever Smith location I visited over ten years ago, and after yesterday’s brunch it’s still my favorite. The food was delicious (jalapeño cheddar grits, vanilla bean French toast, mac-n-cheese, steak and eggs—no, I didn’t order all this stuff myself my girls and I did family-style dining!) and our waiter, Zach, was awesome! He was very friendly and attentive without hovering and gave great suggestions. The inadvertently prepared extra drink was a nice bonus! Will go back again and again!

    I brought my best friend to experience a great brunch place, It was very busy and short staffed when we went but they sure did make the time and work it out to take care of everyone especially the Manger was so sweet and nice and I really appreciate places like this… I truly understand what it is to work understaffed.. especially that I come the medical field… so they did such a great good working together to get all their customers well attended and The house potato chips a Must… thank you to the staff at The Smith for making my best friend experience wonderful

    Food and service was very good. The only complaint was the booth we sat in the table was attached to the floor and was not centered, so one side the bench was too far from the table and other side too tight.
