Very popular so make reservations. French toast was decadent. They gladly make alterations to menu items on request.

tables were too close together and heard every word the people said right next to us. I enjoyed the Smith at Columbus circle much better.
I had the waffle - the apple compote portion was very small for $17

My husband enjoyed his pancakes.

I’ve been to the Smith a lot, but this was the first in a while. Had a reservation for 2 and got seated quickly. It’s usually pretty loud but it wasn’t unbearable. We got a carafe of wine and oysters- which were wonderful! However my boyfriend wanted the special- baby back ribs which they were sadly out of. So he got the steak and it was bland. Tasted like it had no seasoning at all. For $29 bucks we expected the steak to be better. But we still had a nice time and a great waiter. The ambience is always cozy!

SO loud. Good energy , but hard to have a conversation. Food was very good. Servers were very nice but we felt rushed.

Food, didn't blow me away. Had to send an Item back to be cooked more. Got one drink order wrong and the right drink wasn't very good. It was a martini not a hard drink to make. Overall unimpressed. Not a bad place, maybe just a bad night.

Mediocre food, far too loud, and nice, but very rushed service. I didn’t mind too much because I couldn’t have a conversation and neighboring diners were standing around their table and in my space. Perfect spot if you are 21 and drinking heavily with friends

Overall THE SMITH is know for their BRUNCH menu, On this occasion we went specially for the Short Rib Hash, Unfortunately this time we left a little disappointed since our plates where missing that Usual Taste and Flavor. Overall we had a good time and enjoyed the good service.

We had a very enjoyable visit the other night. They opened the windows because the weather was beautiful. Our waiter was very attentive. The ricotta gnocchi was to die for. Love this place and will be returning soon.

Came here for my anniversary with my boyfriend. It was such a good decision. The food was out of this world, especially the Mac and cheese. The only thing I didn’t love was how loud it was. Otherwise, we had an amazing experience

Absolutely spectacular (and affordable) restaurant just around the corner from Webster Hall. From appetizer, to the amazing small plates, to the mind-blowing desserts, everything rocked. Would go back again in a heartbeat!

Excellent reception and promptly seated. Salomon, our server was very attentive and genuinely friendly. The support staff bussed the table without being asked- this makes for a more relaxing dining experience.
But, the noise level was overwhelming. I could not focus on our conversation and my guests commented on the annoying noise level.
Our meals were well prepared and arrived at table without delay.

The Smith has a decent brunch with very good Eggs Benedict and a tasty Bloody Mary. However, the noise levels can be excruciating when it's full. Service is friendly and helpful.

Overall nice restaurant, atmosphere. Food is good, service is better, a bit expensive. Caesar's Salad as a main entrée was more the size of an appetizer salad, not a main course, so would now order that again.

Our food was amazing and our server was very attentive. We didn't wait to be seated as we had a reservation and the food came out fairly fast.
I had a steak salad and it had super tender fairly big chunks of steak and the balsamic dressing was outstanding.
My boyfriend had mussels and the bowl was overflowing with them!
Great taste for good price.
Highly recommend!

Great server. Food was good - not amazing but good. It’s a loud restaurant made louder by having the front opened to the outside so street noise added to it (and diluted the air conditioning on a hot day). Friendly.
