At time of reservation, there was no note on the restaurants stringent COVID policies which include having to wear a mask during your entire meal. We were freezing indoors and everyone around us wore a coat their entire meal.
Our food was prepared incorrectly, and it was a hassle to have refired given the constant having to put a mask on / take a mask off as the servers arrived while eating.
While I understand the importance of air circulation, having all of the doors open in sub-freezing temperatures made indoor dining less pleasant than outdoor dining. Additionally, being told to wait down the street “in front of the bank next door” for the rest of my party to arrive for a reservation (party of 2 at a non-busy time) by the rude (but the only warm person in the establishment due to a heat lamp) hostess was also a nice touch.
The food is always consistent, comfortable and clean eating environment.
Food and service was absolutely amazing! It was our first time at this location and we really enjoyed it. Only down side was I had no where to hang my bag when we were seated so it had to go on the floor. And one guest (who I assume is a regular) was extremely loud; talking, yelling, laughing! Made the second half of our dinner quite humorous but a little annoying. But the restaurant itself was stellar.
Delicious food, pleasant and attentive server, physical barriers in place, requested mask stay on at table unless eating or drinking.
AMAZING COVID PRECAUTIONS, great service, always amazing food definitely recommend
Great food and service ! My go-to when I’m back home in the East Village!
The mac and cheese was amazing and their happy hour specials were unreal!
Always solid- food is delicious- service is awesome.
Food was delicious. Service was excellent. Social distancing was also excellent.
Great drinks! I also love their homemade chips with dressing.
It was amazing me and my significant other liked the place & the food, our waiter was amazing I forgot his name but he had a red hat tonight lol
The Smith is always super solid. Awesome food and great service. ALSO they follow covid rules and make me feel safe. I really hope they don’t get relaxed with this because it’s the reason many of us continue to frequent The Smith restaurants here in NYC. A+
Such a great experience in The Smith, great Covid precautions, wonderful food and waiting stuff was so nice. I was meeting my friends after very long time and all was up to our expectations! Thank you The Smith!
The efficiency and execution were outstanding especially in the era of Covid. Wonderful service and will definitely be back!
The food was great and the service was excellent. The waitstaff was very nice and accommodating.
Great customer service, quick, efficient and all staff was super nice. Place inside is really nice, farm-like décor, and the food was very tasty!
Pandemic Saturday brunch indoor dining at its best . Great brunch menu selection and the potato chips with blue cheese fondue is beyond delicious ! Tables were more than 6 feet apart with plastic and barriers and EVERYONE wore a mask !
Awesome food & service and the best that could be done in regards to ambiance! The space heaters kept me warm, but I went on a very cold day, (Jan 28th) and my toes got a little cold towards the end of the meal.
We ate here in the freezing cold bc it was outdoor dining only. Service was great and we were glad to have somewhere to go for a drink.
Both the food and service were very good, but I do think they could do a bit better of a job with the outdoor heating lamps. The seating enclosures had about a half heating lamp per party of 2. Hoping for at least 1 lamp per party.
Was nice. We were placedoutside by the entrance door and would have rather had a booth for space / warmth. But as always the food and drinks were amazing. Will always be our favorite date night restaurant :)
It was for my birthday and the food was really good
Food was very good, my party got the pork chop, NY strip and mac & cheese. However there isn’t a heat lamp for every booth so it got cold towards the end of the meal.
Staff very friendly and good food. Didn’t like waiting 20mns even with reservation.
We love The Smith, it's our goto for Brunch and Lunch! Always great food, service and drinks. We will be back again soon. Thank you for all that you are doing during this Pandemic!
MISERABLE ... Absolutely not suitable for outdoor winter dining. Some places are bearable. This one is not. We left after appetizers. Server was the opposite of friendly
We didn’t have a heater by our table so that made our dinner a little uncomfortable.
With the world being how it is, I’m so grateful for The Smith! There are separators between each table, ample outdoor seating, and heat lamps at every table! The service hasn’t missed a beat and has always been and continues to be great- and same goes for the food. Going out to eat may not be top priority but to have the option and feel more normal about the shitstorm that is 2020 is great! Thanks The Smith!
My favorite local restaurant. Food is delicious. Service is outstanding. Always a pleasant experience.
It’s so hard eating out now with indoor dining shut but we decided to go to The Smith for brunch. The waitress was wonderful! So attentive and friendly. Their rule to mask up when a waiter comes to the table is very smart. Of course the staff (and customers) should exercise the utmost caution so we can all be safe. I reinvented the eggs Benedict to a veggie one by substituting the Canadian bacon with avocado and there was no problem whatsoever. Everything was delicious although it all got cold due to eating outside in January! We were well socially distanced with plexiglass and plastic dividers and heat lamps above. My only comment is I wish there were more of an enclosure so it might be a little bit warmer. We were open to the elements on one side so it was hard to get warm. All in all it was a wonderful experience!
Perfect outdoor seating experience. Everyone wearing masks. Felt safe. Heaters worked well in 37 degrees outside. Food was excellent. Most delicious french toast. Burgers tasty, fries very good. Would definitely return!
This is my Go to Spot - the Drinks are delicious and the food is amazing even down to the fries. Whenever anyone wants a drink and would like to relax with good food I suggest here.
This was my second time at The Smith. First was for a marvelous Thanksgiving dinner of turkey with all the trimmings. This time I order the blackened porkchop with some excellent spicy grits. Just as yummy. I'll be back.
The best and safest outdoor dining experience I’ve had all fall!! Warm heaters everywhere and plexiglass used where 6’ distancing is not in place. Super friendly waitstaff.
The Smith is always a favorite restaurant of mine and this was my first time going during the pandemic. They took all the social distance and safety measures and did an excellent job considering the circumstances. Will be back!
Consistently quality food. Staff is accommodating to tweaks to the menu. Pretty good value for what it is - on the less expensive side of more upscale places
Sat on patio. Good protocols. Heater wax between table so only one side felt it. Service great. Food varied and really good.
Excellent choice . Very well prepare during covid .
