The French Toast was fantastic although when I think of carmelized bananas I think of the crunchy kind of outside and they were mushy. Were not camelized. Wait staff were great and had a 15 minute wait for our table but it was Father's Day. Would go back.

Booked a Father’s Day brunch reservation ahead of time. We were seated 20 mins after our scheduled reservation but exceptional service and food once we sat down. We will be happy to come back.

The French Toast and the Mac and Cheese were amazing! My friend was not as thrilled about the Ranchero scramble. Overall it was a great return to the brunch experience in NYC and we were happy to be dining inside in a busy but not overcrowded restaurant. Thank you!

Another solid meal at the Smith. You can't go wrong. Avocado toast and egg white omelet were fantastic. French toast was immense. Banana was a little sweet for me but generally everything was great

Both inside and outside irritatingly loud.
Food looked good but omelet and grits lukewarm
Grits without jalapeno and not nearly as good as at Lincoln Center The Smith.
I would not return to this location.

First time at The Smith and the service was amazing. First, we had a very nice and friendly hostess named Jessica. She seated us at a nice private table. Our server, Adriana was attentive, kind, informative, and very sweet. We were happy with our food and the recommendations. As you can see from our pictures, we are a lot. They were all delicious!

Went to The Smith for brunch Sunday, 6/13. Ordered the Mac and Cheese (which was really good) and brussels sprouts (good but too charred for my preference). Also ordered the BLT+E with my egg fried hard (no yolk). It wasn’t fried as hard as I like, was a little yolk but not enough to turn me off. My bf ordered the french toast which we had to return. The slices were HUGE and he said the bread was soggy and the syrup didn’t taste like maple syrup. The orange juice he ordered also didn’t taste like regular OJ or even fresh squeezed. And it was $6. We didn’t return the OJ but just an FYI if you like orange juice with your breakfast. I guess if you use it for a mimosa you really can’t tell. All in all the waiter, service, and ambiance was good just wish the french toast matched.

We had the salmon tartare and squid ink tagliatelle; both were delicious and we didn’t have to wait long! We then split the strawberry pie and, delightfully, discovered not a slice a pie, but our very own mini pie! Yum! It was a wonderful meal after a long pandemic and we felt very safe the whole time!

Popped in for some lunch with the wife. Our server instructed us to wait 5mins so we could take advantage of their happy hour (appreciate that). Food was awesome drinks were delicious. Service was excellent, atmosphere and music was on point. We will definitely be returning

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.

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.

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.
