Fantastic - As always
I find the menu very meat heavy. I’d like the Smith to offer the vegan burger such as the beyond meat burger.
Found this on Yelp because it was near my sons apartment. Had a 6:30 reservation and when we got there the place was very busy and hopping. We were seated promptly. We found it to be very noisy. The service was excellent and the food was excellent also. Would definitely go back.
I had a reservation for brunch and got seated at a small table for 3. I asked if the table across from us was already being seated, the host said yes. It was a 4 seat set up and it was given to three guys. If I was seated first, why was it not available to my party of 3? I asked if a larger table becomes available can we move to that table. The server said it was busy so he would have to see. Moments later a lady with her carriage asked to get by because they just changed her table. Also another party of 3. The server picked up that I was annoyed and decided to not interact with me much, just asking to take plates and leaving the bill on the table. There weren't many people in the place that looked like me, but I don't want to assume there was something bigger going on.
I'll try the other two locations because the food was good. But food can never taste so good for me to support a place I didn't feel comfortable at.
But yes, the food was good.
Second time at the Smith. First time was for dinner. This time was for brunch. It was good. Would go again
This place is not worth it. Too crowded / bad service / slow service / mediocre food / expensive for what it is.
We were having a pre theatre meal, told our server and he couldn’t have been more attentive, solicitous or efficient. A total professional.
The food was spot on, and even though kind of noisy, we had a comfortable table.
Food is really good quality, well prepared and plentiful at reasonable prices. On the whole, a very reliable, pleasant neighborhood dining experience.
Great servers and great food👍🏻
What a great experience! We were seated right away and the server was at out table as soon as we sat down. The service remained stellar throughout our visit. The food was delicious! Two of us had the Smith Eggs Benedict. The eggs were poached perfectly and the hollandaise sauce was delicious. The rest of us had hamburgers and said they were delicious and cooked as ordered. What a fantastic value!
Cozy, hip atmosphere. Every dish was full of flavor, and better than the next. Best service I have had at a restaurant in quite some time. Highly recommended and will be back!
THE FOOD AND SERVICE IS AMAZING. Not to mention, we arrived at the wrong location (my mistake), and they held our reservation while we traveled to the correct location. So kind. Highly recommend The Smith.
Fast-seating and good food. I loved the setting and so did my friends.
Had my birthday dinner here with 10 friends on a Monday and had a great time! We had the potato chips which are my absolute favorite. The pork chop was also awesome.
Love the food and the services is great. My only complaint is the noise level. You have to scream at the people you are with.
Took my niece here for her first ever NYC brunch! Truly my favorite brunch spot in the city!
All was great except expresso was disgusting- was cold and tasted like ink.
I've been here for breakfast and dinner and highly recommend both! Food and staff are excellent. A bit noisy though. Good for families too!
Great for brunch. Delicious food and very good service. Now we have tried all 4 locations in Manhattan and all have the same good food and good service. Cannot go wrong in any of the 4 locations!
Amazing! Will definitely go again.
It was a nice place to take out-of-town guests as so many reviews state. But as a vegetarian there are very limited choices. The kale salad was actually very good. I should have just had that. The gnocchi was doughy and barely warm. I don't know why everyone raves about it. It was a big disappointment. Service was friendly, but they never asked my friend how she wanted her burger cooked so it came out a bit rare for her.
It was pretty loud but overall. The Smith never disappoints with their infamous Mac and cheese
Amazing. A creepy man came up to my friend and I at dinner and the manager and our server noticed immediately and handled the situation perfectly. Food was amazing. Service incredible. Muah.
We LOVE the Smith - Great choices, good food and a vibrate atmosphere!
Visit all East Side Locations quick often - you can't go wrong!
Good for a casual dinner. Solid food.
Was surprised a “carafe” of wine was really kind of a 1/2 carafe. I assume the “giant” carafe is the normal carafe size. Expensive too! I should have gotten a regular bottle.
YUMMY. MAC AND CHEESE WAS AS PROMISED, COMFORTING. BRUNCH WAS TASTY.
Brunch was great! Get the short rib!
Very popular so make reservations. French toast was decadent. They gladly make alterations to menu items on request.
Delicious food, first-rate service, lots of choice. Something for everyone, everything we look for in a perfect brunch.
tables were too close together and heard every word the people said right next to us. I enjoyed the Smith at Columbus circle much better.
I had the waffle - the apple compote portion was very small for $17
My husband enjoyed his pancakes.
Food was awesome! Staff was extremely attentive. Great place.
Cool vibe, good food, great service
I’ve been to the Smith a lot, but this was the first in a while. Had a reservation for 2 and got seated quickly. It’s usually pretty loud but it wasn’t unbearable. We got a carafe of wine and oysters- which were wonderful! However my boyfriend wanted the special- baby back ribs which they were sadly out of. So he got the steak and it was bland. Tasted like it had no seasoning at all. For $29 bucks we expected the steak to be better. But we still had a nice time and a great waiter. The ambience is always cozy!
SO loud. Good energy , but hard to have a conversation. Food was very good. Servers were very nice but we felt rushed.
Food, didn't blow me away. Had to send an Item back to be cooked more. Got one drink order wrong and the right drink wasn't very good. It was a martini not a hard drink to make. Overall unimpressed. Not a bad place, maybe just a bad night.
Very accommodating for kids, I didn’t think the club was that special but it tasted good. Others seemed to like their dishes!
Mediocre food, far too loud, and nice, but very rushed service. I didn’t mind too much because I couldn’t have a conversation and neighboring diners were standing around their table and in my space. Perfect spot if you are 21 and drinking heavily with friends
Solid, good for a group with different tastes, but nothing amazing amazing.
Excellent. Great breakfast. Took us early for our reservation.
