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.

We've been to the East Village location many times and never disappoints. A little pricey but the food is tremendous and the portions are generous. The service is always prompt without being intrusive. A good time and we will definitely be back.

Everything we tried was amazing - short rib and pasta special on Thursdays, the gnocchi and the butternut squash salad. Good cocktails. Very nice atmosphere. Would happily return.

A great spot for a group of friends or a family gathering. Lots on the menu for sharing, which is what we chose to do. A few apps, a few mains, and some desserts, and we were filled to the brim. The wine seems expensive for what it is and everything is a bit overpriced, but overall we enjoyed ourselves. This is a reliable spot that I suggest for groups and I'm rarely disappointed. We ordered the calamari, the tartare, a dozen oysters, duck wings, a kale salad, and cocktails to start. Then we had the NY strip, brick chicken, chicken meatballs and spaghetti, ragu pasta, another salad, and everything was great. We let them know we were sharing and asked them to cut up the chicken and steak into strips for us, which they obliged and it was exceedingly helpful. For dessert, we ordered the bread pudding and some chocolate dessert, I can't recall the name. We were completely satisfied and would definitely return.

Perfect way to spend New Year’s Eve! The open bar had great liquor choices and drinks. And the food was exceptional. I got the salmon and my boyfriend got the filet mignon. Our waitress, Emily was the best!! Would definitely recommend and go back again!

First time at The Smith and was not disappointed. None pretentious American menu that fits many tastes and done and served perfectly. Loved the spicy salmon, gnocchi, short ribs and branzino. Casual atmosphere, a bit noisy but with a great vibe. Superb service. Will definitely be back.

Be warned, this is a busy & noisy brunch spot. You will be squeezed in to your table with barely 6 inches between your table and your neighbour's. The service is prompt and the food your standard brunch staples. The arrived hot and was tasty. Not sure I would return, based solely on the level of noise and proximity to other tables.

Great spot. We already take friends visiting the city here for brunch. Fun place but not so “adventurous” to scare off people not familiar with the city. Line can get long for brunch.. especially when Weather is nice. Always worth a reservation. Whole party needs to be there to be seated

Very limited menu. The order did not come out correctly. We were told that there was a kids menu, then when we started to order, we were told there is not a kids menu. Food was fair at best. The noise level makes it difficult to have a conversation. I will not return.

The Smith was wonderful! We had an unexpected event that caused our reservation to be pushed back an hour. I tried to cancel, but they kept us in the rotation and made a stressful night so much easier by allowing us to keep the reservation. We had a wonderful dinner, drinks and dessert. Try the Mac and cheese: you’ll be spoiled for life!
