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 .
The problem was the COVID protocol was too OVERKILL. The server wouldn't come to the table, unless everyone had masks on. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? I eat in lots of restaurants in the City, and Never had this experience. Quite annoying. The server would stand 4+ feet away till we all had masks on while we are eating. they wont see me there.
Wine came in a water glass.
Mussels had way too much garlic, salad was tasteless
My Husband and I went on Thanksgiving and were so happily surprised. There was a Prefix with lots of sides included and we were both thrilled with the food and the entire experience. The waitstaff could not have been any nicer and we felt completely safe. There was plenty of space, they took our temperatures and address, and we were asked to wear our masks whenever a server came to our table. We brought home the extras because there was so much and enjoyed it the next day. Will go back soon!
Always loved the Smith food and vibe, but especially excited by their current outdoor dining setup — well heated but absolutely no walls! Sensible yet comfortable — one of the few New York restaurants doing it right!
We stopped by this evening with a reservation for dinner at 7:15. We are trying to support our restaurants as much as we can during this pandemic. A few minutes after sitting down we were approached by a waiter who asked if he could take our order. We said we would like to order a drink before ordering our meal. Waiter said NO ITS AGAINST THE LAW to serve a drink with out food being provided at the same time. We asked to see manager. He came over and repeated the same line. We said we did not come to drink and that we came for DINNER and would like our glass of wine first and then dinner to follow. He said that wasn’t possible and that they “follow the law”. We got up and left. The only restaurant in the past 2 months to treat us like this AWFUL AWFUL. We asked if we could place the order for food and have it come after our drinks. He said “no”. Many tables had people with drinks and no food. Sad we will never go back to the Smith .
Good ambience! Perfect food!! Best pesto aioli sauce ☺️
The Smith is always great. This is my first time back since covid and they are handling everything VERY well and I felt very safe
Celebrating my birthdays
they made dining outside feel safe and worthwhile. i would definitely eat there again
Nice simple brunch
My favorite place in the East Village. Great and friendly service. Cocktails are always on point. Good choices in the food department. The apple pie is a diet deal breaker.
I’ve always loved The Smith and this is my favorite location. And Erica, the new waitress who took care of me the two most recent times I was there is a wonderful and warm person.
This is my solid sure bet and I can’t recommend it enough.
I am really picky about outdoor dining & The Smith E. Village has been my best experience so far — other restaurants should copy their process & protocols! Service was smooth, easy, and most of all, SAFE for me & for the restaurant employees. Plus, the food is great, as ever! Tip well at The Smith! The team is making a huge effort & it’s appreciated.
Great variety of food. Staff is very careful wearing mask & make sure everyone at the table has it on. I always recommend The Smith to friends,
I like it here. The food is great and that’s the best part!!!
Taking lots of COVID precautions! 🙌🏻 food still our family favorite
Table was right on the sidewalk so there was a lot of foot traffic.
Great food. Stringent social distancing protocols. Recommend the gnocchi!
Been going here for years since it opened and have some favorite dishes. Glad it is still here and taking the pandemic seriously. I appreciate the extra caution to mask while the waiter comes. its a little annoying but it is a better safe than sorry scenario
A local friendly restaurant with good food and friendly staff. I eat there at least 3 times weekly.
I ordered the Moscow Mule I’d go back just for that drink
The chips with clue cheese fondue are great, but make sure to eat them while they're hot! And you can never go wrong with the salmon.
Everything was perfect! The service seamless; the food (I ordered the three-course menu) was fantastic; and all the COVID-19 preventive measures great! Will definitely return.
Just a note to all guests- you are required to wear your mask while you are seated at your table, when you are not eating or drinking. So, if you are mid -bite and a waiter comes by to drop off your drink or pick something up, you have to stop and put your mask on.
It was delicious to the last bite! Thank you
The food and drinks are always phenomenal and they had great seating options for covid! I wish they did unlimited brunch tho
They took Covid-19 control seriously.
Food is always wonderful from the spicy salmon tartare on crispy rice to having their pressed chicken. Yum. Staff is lovely very careful taking temperatures not approaching the table til everyone has put their masks back on.
Great outdoor table. They are very strict with mask wearing, which I like. Great service.
We ate inside. COVID 19 social distancing rules are followed very well protecting both guests and staff. No one was "too close"
Food was delicious.
My salmon was roasted to perfection. my husband's burger as well.
Our waiter Matthew was very attentive and accommodating.
Thank you to all at The Smith for keeping us safe.
Won’t be returning until after Covid. This is the only place I’ve been to that requires everyone at the table to put their mask on and off every time a staff member approaches the table. While I respect their health and understand the concept, it was a disaster and a horrible experience. It’s one thing to do it if the staff approach the table 3-4 times in total but it was not working out right. At the end of dinner we all had food on our masks because they’d approach us and we’d have to rush to cover ourselves even if we were mid sip or chew.
The safest I’ve felt during a dining service yet. Although there are many precautions that some may see as annoying I appreciate it.
The waitress are so rude. But the manager he knows how to handle everything. Good for the restaurant.
Thought I'd get something special for my 21st birthday :/
Good food. Great Service
The Smith is a great place if you are looking for an indoor dining option in the EV. I felt safe dining here as they have many COIVD protocols in place. The staff was friendly and the food was great.
