The burger was great. The fries were a no for me, I did not like them. The drinks are a no for me as well.

The staff were at their best given the circumstances. Outdoor dining is not ideal at this location (high foot traffic) but they make it work

Hello:
Since the Restaurants right now should use only outdoor sittings, they need to have UMBRELLAS.

We postpone our reservation from 4:30PM to 6:30PM due to the strong sun and NO coverage provided above the table. Otherwise, we were very happy with the service and food provided.

My boyfriend and I went for brunch during the Coronavirus outbreak just to get out of the house. The food was great, people were still out having brunch as well. We just made sure we were very cautious by washing our hands and sanitizing. The wait staff used wipes to wipe down the tables and chairs. We felt very comfortable.

We have eaten at The Smith in several of their locations. The food is consistently good - particularly the crispy brussel sprouts!! The service is always good. It can get a bit loud but this time we had a booth so it was easy to have a conversation without yelling. It's on my list of "go to" restuarants!

The atmosphere was nice (interesting, clean, etc), the staff was excellent, especially Bernadette, attentive without being overbearing, accommodating, and pleasant. Helped us enjoy two courses and get out in time for our show. Food was all very good and had flair in both appearance and taste. Will go again. Hoping for 3 courses so we can try dessert.

Our service was amazing. It was a little rocky seating such a large party initially, but they did everything they could to accommodate us and when they realized we had two elderly people in our party, they switched things around to make it easier for them to enjoy brunch. Phenomenal team.

Ordered filet which was a tiny airline sized piece of meat on a plate overflowing with shoestring fries. Needless to say, it was disappointing.

It was great. I had the bar steak medium rare and it literally melted in my mouth. It was perfectly grilled. My wife had a Caesar salad and broccolini. Delicious. Then I had ice cream for dessert. Superb. Resto was busy but we were there early so it was no problem at all.

What I always object to about The Smith at Lincoln Center is the noise level, and The Smith East Village, although smaller, is not much different. We got there early and it was fairly quiet, but by the time we finished our meal, we couldn't hear ourselves.

Good food and service, thought that it was the right time to come in at 6pm, before it got a bit noisy. Acoustics could be better.

Service was great - very helpful with our gluten sensitive and celiac folks - 3 of us ordered the special Sicilian eggs. They were ok but very over cooked, spinach was charred. I couldn’t chew the edges of the egg, not edible.

This is my 3rd time at The Smith. They never disappoint! I had a 1:15 reservation and ran late due to parking issues. They were able to accommodate us right away when we showed up 20 min. Late. The food, drinks and service was impeccable. Will definitely be back!

Met my cousin here for brunch last Sunday. It was excellent. First, the brunch cocktails are a must! I had a pomegranate blend drink which was delicious and perfect with my meal. The service was perfect - our server was so nice, friendly and helpful. The food is incredible. I had an omelette made to order which was soo good. The pancakes with marscapone and caramel were amazing! Loved The Smith and would highly recommend!

Another visit, this time with out of town friends after a walkabout through the East Village. The restaurant was perfect for this occasion. We arrived almost an hour early, and were seated right away. Cocktails were delicious and prompt, and the bread was readily refilled. Appetizers: caeser salad, mac & cheese, shishito peppers. Nothing was left. My dinner was the pork chops with jalepeno grits, the pork was perfect, and my mouth is watering over the grits as I write this. The others had steak frites and filet mignon, and everyone was very pleased with their orders. Service remained attentive, though as we lingered over the dessert, the host did pass the table several times taking notes, and we did feel a bit of pressure to leave. It was a great night, and I was especially happy it met the expectations of our guests.

The staff is very nice. We were seated on time. Several waitstaff walked past us without stopping or even making eye contact. Then one dropped off water. Eventually a different person showed up to take our order. Took about 15 minutes for 2 cocktails to arrive. But the real problem was the food. This place is quite expensive for the neighborhood. The short rib daily special ($34) was not good. Actually tough! Virtually no sauce. Had to use a knife, almost asked for a steak knife to manage it. Spouse did like her salmon. Also, it's pretty loud. We won't go again.

Stopped in for brunch while on a brief vacation. Had oysters, bloody Mary’s, the French toast with a side of maple sausage, and the short rib has with grits. Most incredible meal I’ve had in a long time. Service was great. Tables are a little cramped and the place is quite loud but totally expected since the food is so amazing.
