This was my first time at this location. They are all good, but this one is a bot smaller, yet not as crowded. I tried the spicy salmon tartar. It was amazing! New favorite dish! I also had the mac & cheese. It was very good but way too much for one person. Definitely plan to return.

Took my girlfriend out on a valentines night date. Everything went great as planned! They called me a day before to make sure I was still arriving and when we got there, we were seated very quickly. The waitress was kind and attentive to our every need. Great experience!

It won't change your life, but you can trust The Smith to offer a well-rounded dining experience that sits somewhere between "special occasion fancy" and "weeknight casual." The food, atmosphere and service are consistently solid, and the staff and menu accommodate gluten allergies particularly well. Great vibes at The Smith.

Love The Smith - any location. This was Valentine's Day. Our server was outstanding, gave us time to order, tried not to interrupt the conversation... food was amazing, as always.

We love The Smith. At any location. We have thoroughly enjoyed meals with friends and family in town, as well as a fun valentines dinner in the city. Everything we have ever had is wonderful. The chips and blue cheese fondue is wonderful as well as both burgers, the steak salad, the short rib pasta; it’s really all just great. As a bourbon and whisky drinker I love the sourness and awesome flavor of the hungry teacher cocktail , and I get bonus points for being married to a teacher. My wife always loves the wine list as well as the Warwick hard cider. We highly recommend The Smith to anyone in the city in need of any great meal. Not “cheap” by any means, but worth about $120 for a couple for cocktails, an appetizer and meals (obviously depending on what your order). We have spent much less. And much more depending on the night.

The atmosphere is very cool, food is delicious,and service is friendly and kindly. Also this place is always crowded especially at dinner time. So unfortunately always very noisy. But I love The Smith.

The Smith Restaurant is our new favorite place. We simply mentioned that we were on a long overdue date night and they treated my wife and I like royalty. Complimentary Champagne, a special taste of the amazing Ricotta Gnocchi were just a few small touches that went a long way. Our server was super friendly and knowledgable of the very nice menu, and the manager checked on us too. And the food was terrific. Absolutely loved my chicken dish and my wife and I both loved our choices of salads. Very tasty. More than anything the staff really went out of their way to make our evening special and they succeeded big time. They really blew us away with such great warmth and old fashioned love. We have been telling everyone about the Smith. So appreciative for such a great night. can't wait to go back and try so many other great foods on the menu.

My wife & I enjoyed our “date” at The Smith. We had the Kale Flatbread as an appetizer. My wife enjoyed her Atlantic Haddock. She didn’t like the bacon part of the dish. She had the Garlic Smashed Potatoes. I had the Burger Supreme as my entree.

My only complaint: it took the server a long time to bring me my Jack & Coke.

Hopefully, we will go back to The Smith is the upcoming weeks and/or months.

I always enjoy going to the Smith. Whichever location it is, the food is reliable. The major problem is that it is extremely noise, which is made worse by the interior being mostly tile. Unless you go early, it's not a place to have a conversation.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. The ambience is relaxed and trendy, and the food is great quality (though very pricy). Full bar and fun photo booth downstairs!

Could be the loudest restaurant we've ever been to -- couldn't hear each other or our waiter. We were seated right next to the restroom (a one person one at that) so constant stream of people in and out around us. Food was ok, not great. We probably wouldn't go back.

Always an amazing meal. We had out of town guests in, with their child, and The Smith WOW'd everyone. Chicken Parm was great and not super heavy. Pork Schnitzel was so good (who knew?)! Pepper burger was awesome, jalapeño cheese grits out of this world. We love coming to the Smith.

I had quite a large group of people in my party, and The Smith was extremely accommodating, quick service, and delicious food. This is one of the smaller locations, so expect to wait on a busy weekend night. Love the blue cheese fondue, mac and cheese, gnocchi, and prosecco. It's one of the best meals I've had in the city.
