The smith is always great! I enjoy the ambiance, the service and the food. The mac n cheese is so delicious! I will definitely be having it again. I will not be having the egg benefit johnny, it wasn't as good as the egg Benedict the smith. Also, i noticed the pecan pancakes were a bit smaller this time I went with my husband. Last time, the pancakes were the size of the plate. When I mean last time, i mean two weeks ago. I think the only thing they need to improve on is consistency with their dishes, b/c even their home fries weren't as good as last time.

My first time going to Smith for dinner. Met a few couples there. It was very loud and busy by 7pm on a Saturday so I’m glad we made a reservation. We ordered a few appetizers and most of us got one of the stake options. Everyone was happy with their meal. I would go back.

Got brunch with my partner. It was absolutely amazing. The food was great and our waitress (forgot her name but she is blonde with short hair) was FANTASTIC! She recommended the pastrami grilled cheese to my partner and he absolutely loved it. And she give you both sparkling and still water upon sitting down which we both loved. Fabulous experience. We will definitely be back.

Discovered and selected The Smith because it could accommodate a party of 12 and was in a convenient location, but was impressed with their interesting, affordable menu; outstanding food; and exceptional service. Honestly, I’ll be back — and not just when I need space for a large party.

Had a great time at The Smith. We were a table of 5. The service was great even though the place was hopping! The butternut squash “onion” rings were ridiculously good. Never wanted for anything and were never rushed out like so many busy restaurants do. I highly recommend!

We reserved a table for 4 at 6:15 and when we were running late they were able to accommodate changing our reservation to 6:45 without any problems and we were seated immediately. Bridget took wonderful care of us. She suggested drinks, helped with apps and meal choices and even pulled off a special dessert for the birthday girl with dietary restrictions. Everything was delicious! We loved the potato chips with blue cheese sauce. The fried Calamari was tender and just a touch spicy. The roasted tomato soup was so fresh and delicious. Two orders of the chicken pot pie were finished in their entirety ( even after those eating them “couldn’t eat another bite” half way through. The Atlantic Haddock was lite and wonderful. Desserts didn’t disappoint either!!! Thanks to the other diners who left reviews that made us choose The Smith. We will definitely be back. Great job!!

Service great, food very good - diver scallop special had interesting broth; haddock had especially nice Dijon beurre blanc that complemented rather than overpowering fish and accompanying vegetables. Sticky toffee pudding was a treat. Fun atmosphere.

We came for the Mac and cheese and were surprised to find it in the app section. Our concern about portion size was unwarranted. It was too much to finish! The Smith burger was the best, most savory burger we'd even eaten. Wish we'd had time (and saved room) for dessert! Service was attentive and friendly. We will be back and will be telling friends to go ASAP!

Such a cute brunch place in NYC, I wished there was something like this in Long Island. I got the smoked salmon toast and my friends got the avocado toast. We all loved the food, fast and friendly service. They also have a photo booth downstairs for $5.

I have been to 3 Smith locations, this one is smaller than NOMAD but same energetic vibe and the same good quality food. I'm not a burger person but if you are try the Supreme version - amazing flavors. It is loud so when with a group it is challenging to hear all those at the table.

Beautiful ambiance. My cousin and I were greeted with smiles and welcoming energy. It was dim and lit subtly by candles and other fixtures. I was honestly so surprised by the food and so was my cousin, we both really underestimated it. The first bite literally captures you. Only thing I’d say is that the first size for wine is 14$ and it’s a little bit bigger than a shot glass which I was disappointed with. But, overall I really liked the overall energy of the place and the pictures plastered on the wall towards the rear of the restaurant just added to it. I’m definitely making plans to return.

Great food. We had the Mac n cheese appetizer which is the best. Creamy with a great crust on top. We ordered a burger and the brick pressed chicken. Both were flavored perfectly and delicious.
The service was fabulous.
