No bread offered for the table-even at a price?
But seltzer placed in the table so if used you pay??

C’mon now

Waiter was very nice. But VERY slow service. We did not expect they would be understaff on a Sunday night. We can't flag our waiter down for over 10 min. He's either too busy or nowhere to be found.
They also try to overbill us $20 for wine that we didn't drink. The Chianti really caught my eye coz me and my husband don't drink at all.
It's a shame because this location is closest to where we live. I had really great experience in Lincoln Square and many times in midtown East location.

I would absolutely and without reservation recommend The Smith. The atmosphere was festive and upbeat, the service, including the hostess, was great, thoughtful and convivial, the food was inventive and outstanding across the board, and our party of five for my son's birthday uniformly enjoyed it. The Smith has an ability to transform even the most classic of food into something unique. For instance, you must try their tomato soup, muscles and gnocchi.

This was a great choice for a weekday lunch with a friend. The staff were quick and accommodating, making a switch for the lunch special due to dietary restrictions. The food came out quickly and was really good.

The kids salmon was $21, and was not presented on a menu, so I didn’t realize how much I was ordering.

Food was good. Service was good. We had outdoor seating and it was nice to have a fan outdoors for air and ventilation. They do get busy so reservations are helpful. Quality of the food was good. Overall, had a good brunch experience.

The food was lovely. The bartender however is extremely overworked and took 20 minutes to pour a glass of wine. Also, their wet hands flinged droplets from the serving well all over me. I understand it’s busy and they are understaffed, but the response is lacking in communication and empathy for the wait. Could be so much better.

Met a friend I had not seen in 30 years. We got there early but were seated without an issue. Had a couple of beers, an appetizer and two burgers. The burgers were excellent. The server was a terrific guy who is training another person. Will definitely return.

Having eaten at The Smith for years. This time the fries looked and tasted like soggy recycled McDonald’s. So noisy, as usual, inside but sitting outside wasn’t much better. Could still hear blasting music and definitely not a place to have a conversation

Once again, The Smith did not disappoint. As we dip our toes back into the proverbial pool of “normal” life, my friends and I wanted to go back to a place we’ve visited before for post movie drinks/dessert (the AMC village 7 is right across the street); both of which were always delicious and refreshing. We decided to go all in last night and get dinner there as well, and were not disappointed.

My drink, “beach day” checked all of the boxes, being the perfect mix of smooth and sip-worthy. The pasta...you guys...the pasta! My friend had the squid ink tagliatelle and she couldn’t put it down. My choice, the Bolognese was the epitome of *chef’s kiss.* When I tell you that our plates were cleaned, I mean it! The vibe at The Smith is inviting to save the least, so we split a dessert and after dinner drinks; the Churro Hot Fudge Sundae and Tawney port, respectively. I’d originally ordered the ruby port, however, they were out and Juan, the manager was so kind and apologetic (v nice touch on his part).

This was, without a doubt, the most delicious meal and best overall experience I’ve had in a long time and my crew and I will undoubtedly be back.

Mashed too garlicy. Shrimp and grits had too many ingredients....leeks and paprika? On grits? I'd 86 that and add a slice of lemon to cut the richness but that's just me, southern cook that I am. God awful chairs.....no back and bowed metal frames that dig into all but the tiniest derriere. Perhaps this helps move people out quickly but I would rethink those. Mac and cheese app was very satisfying. Outside dining a bit dodgy with traffic, dog walkers and what not but not terrible. Bathroom was clean!
