Considering the time frame on a Saturday night some load patrons but it was birthday so it wasn't a bother. All staff was really friendly the place was clean and had plastic barriers that you can see through which almost made it like it was back to normal.

I love the Smith. It’s consistently amazing. My favorite restaurant in NY. Get the chips and the Mac and cheese. You won’t regret it!!

It was a nice experience. Service was great and the food was fantastic. We got an order of the shishito peppers, demolished them, and ordered more!

Had brunch here the other week, really nice food - we had scrambled eggs and French toast. The ambience is energetic, the food is reasonably priced and the service is quick.

The Smith is a great restaurant for the classic American food lover who wants something with a little bit of a twist. The steaks were phenomenal.

Great brunch spot! Very lively and bustling which was a nice change of pace after not having dined out in a "full" restaurant for a while. Prices seemed moderate in comparison to other places and they had a ton of reservations available last minute. I got the Benedict Johnny which was delicious. Portions seemed on the smaller side but personally enough food for me. I also appreciated that they had dividers set up between tables, it felt a bit safer than some other environments.

We had a table of 4 adults and 4 children, staff were friendly and the service was good. Good choice of food from the dinner menu and plenty to choose from the kids menu. We will definitely eat there again.

I’ve been to the smith midtown and Lincoln center dozens of times. The east village one was slow on service. Took forever for the bill to come or for anyone to check up on us.

My friends and I keep going back to the Smith - it’s our go-to place whenever we’re in the East Village. Food is great, portions are generous and the drinks are well made (and strong!). They also continue to social distance by putting plexiglass in between the tables outside - much appreciated.

Food was great as always. However, a few kinks to work on with outdoor seating: can the tables be shaded better? Not only do the umbrellas not provide enough shade, they're also not very stable when a breeze is blowing. The wait staff simply shrugged their shoulders at this and we were left hoping the umbrella wouldn't fall over and take our table with it!

Excellent comfort food. Steak was tender and we'll cooked with fantastic peppercorn sauce. Gnocci and grits are amongst the best we ever had. Waitress was very attentive and without the attitude that can be present in other neighborhood eateries. Mac and cheese is their signature dish but nothing special. Lots of people watching opportunities and nice energy. Certainly worth trying.

Excellent food, reasonable prices. Portions a bit too generous but then one can always take the leftovers home. Friendly service. Very clean and safety conscious. Partitions outside cut down the noise a bit. Loved the avocado toast for brunch. Would go back and try dinner any time.

The food was pretty good, but the service was horrible. It took almost 45 mins to get the oysters we ordered with our first drinks and the mains were brought out 10 mins later. So we had to rush through our oysters. Our server was rude and seemed lazy. We kept trying to order another round of drinks and by the time we were finally able to we did not get them until we finished our mains. We will not be going back to the smith for brunch again.

The food is great, everything is clean, and overall nice vibe. It can get a bit crowded, but they do a good job of making people feel safely separated.

We really couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Due to traffic, we were 15 minutes late for our reservation - The host was very understanding on the phone, and when we arrived.
The service was outstanding; Will was amazing. Food spot on.
Can't wait for our next visit!

I’ve been to the Smith before and liked it but this was a miss. They were so concerned about Covid protocol which I thought was great with contact tracing and temperature checks etc but then when we were seated at the worst table outside where they send people to stand near us to wait for their tables with no plexiglass on that side and our water glasses had lipstick on them and were clearly not cleaned properly. Food was ok but I paid extra for grilled chicken in my salad but could barely find any ( how much does it cost for a chicken breast) and finally was too expensive for what it was.
