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.

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

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.

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.

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 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.

Felt very rushed out. Didn’t realize the smith closed before 10:30 or else we would have gone somewhere else where we could comfortably sit and order drinks instead of being handed the check within 10 minutes of receiving our food.

Service prompt and food good. They did forget to bring refill for sparkling water though. I didn't like having to mask up every time the water came by. We were able to have the table for a long time which was nice.

So given everything that is going on, quite frankly The Smith nailed it beyond words. Very friendly service. Concise explanation of how it all goes down from getting the temp check to the where masks when the staff swings by. Everyone followed the rules. The meal was great. The cocktails solid, the service exemplary.
