While the location for Lincoln Center perfomances is wonderful, I would reluctantly recommend this restaurant . The problem is the sound level. It's entirely too loud when the restaurant has customers going to Lincoln Crnter. It's so uncomfortable for me that I will not go there before a performance .

Extremely crowded and chaotic, even at 5:30 on a Thursday. Tables are very close together and it’s very loud. We flagged down a server to take our order, then food was delivered by other staff, plates were cleared and then we flagged someone down for check. Not exactly a dining experience. Food is good and comes out quick, just know what you’re getting into in terms of an experience.

The Smith is definitely energetic and high volume (acoustically). Servers and table staff really work to the maximum and most accommodating. Well priced. The quarters are very tight and are very confining. The maximization of revenue is obvious.

Overall The Smith was good. We had made reservations and got seated within 10 minutes of our arrival for a party of 15.
I ordered the Kale Flatbread it was good but it was very very greasy and couldn't finish it. Service from our waitress was very good. Great atmosphere and decor and would recommend to friends.

We were a party of 10 with 4 kids after a show at Lincoln Center. The food and service exceeded my expectations. Between us we devoured the Paella, Cod, Burger, Short Rib Pasta, Bar steak and salad: all were tasty and well prepared. I came here with my wife years ago and was underwhelmed. This time it was good and not terribly expensive. The Smith is an excellent choice for large groups after a show. This place is fun but LOUD!

Great if rather loud place for Lincoln Center proximity. Back room is better acoustically than front. Friendly if a bit harried service, v good food, cramped space but everyone maneuvers and it works.

We went for an early dinner before the theatre. Our table was ready and we were promptly seated. Our server was fabulous. She was friendly and knowledgeable about our wine questions. The food was delicious and prepared as requested.
We would definitely go back again next time in the city.

The Smith has a great energetic vibe. The service was excellent. The food was delicious with very generous helpings. If you are at The Lincoln Center it's ideal for pre/post meal as it's a stone's throw from it. Value for money.

After a dinner at The Smith that featured a large black hair on the top of my pasta, and then being charged for the pasta twice-The hairy one and the replacement- I decided to give the Smith a second try.
My husband and I go regularly to the New York City Ballet, and The Smith is super convenient to Lincoln Center. I had forgotten how noisy and crowded this restaurant is; it was like eating dinner in a crowded subway car at rush hour, with the noise cranked up to top volume. The tables were so close together, there was not enough room for me to put my handbag beside me on the banquette-Real subway seating!
This would have been stuff I could overlook, if the food was not so mediocre. The oysters we ordered were only okay, and my husband's mussels were sandy, and grainy. I ordered the Fish & Chips, and it was without a doubt, the worst Fish & Chips I've had in 50 years of Fish & Chips eating in cities all over the world! Greasy fish, with a few (literally only three pieces) of equally greasy and under cooked chunks of potato- not sliced but cut into crude chunks the way I would have done it when I was 8 years old and just learning to use a paring knife, and loads of inedible (and yes, greasy) pieces of fried lemon and herbs that were clearly in the basket to make the serving look more bountiful.
The Sticky toffee pudding and the very professional and gracious server (I did not get her name), were the only saving graces.
There are too many good restaurants in the Lincoln Center nabe to waste my time and endanger my hearing with the Smith.
I do not expect to give The Smith a third chance!

Chose The Smith for its location. Business meeting-waiters need to be cognizant of what is going on. We were interrupted during a business conversation which was annoying. Do not approach the table ready to interrupt a conversation. Wait till acknowledged. Basic wait-staff training I would hope.

 (Hawaii)·Dined on December 3, 2017

Had great expectations but was disappointed in several ways. We were seated at a table right in front of the door and it was very drafty as the door was opened and closed all during lunch. The noise level was so high my companion and I had difficulty talking with each other. On the positive side, our server was very attentive and courteous. Our food choice was delicious , however pricey. The side of house made potato chips did not taste fresh to me. This was our first trip to NYC and wanted our lunch before attending the Nutcracker to be special and we just expected a better experience. Even though it was crowded with diners we would probably not choose this restaurant again.

Noise level was incredible. Overcrowded!! Food was mediocre at best. Two glass water bottles (open) were put on our table when we were sitting down. We were charged $30.00 on our bill. We were overcharged $10.00 for the wine we ordered. Which I told the waiter about and it was changed. Not a pleasant place to eat. I do not recommend anything about thus restaurant.

We had made reservations for five people and one of our other friends wanted to join us, when we got to the restaurant the staff were understanding and got us a table for all six of us, the food is delicious, and the place is like a classy bar. I would definitely go there again and recommend The Smith Restaurant to everyone I know. To make everything easy you should try and always make reservations on the weekends because it’s super busy

Good pre-theater location for Lincoln Center which is why we chose it. Food was fine, ambiance busy. Only problem was our waiter disappeared just when we needed our check, which made for a little stress when we wanted to get to the show.

There is really no place to stand while waiting for your table. People are all over the place. Otherwise, food was delicious. Desserts heavenly. We were able to have a nice dinner & chat without feeling rushed. Place was crowded since it was a Saturday night but once we were seated we didn't feel like we were on top of other patrons.

Went here for dinner before a show with my mom. Choose this place based on reviews from multiple websites and wasn't disappointed. We sat a little before our 5:30 reservation and we could tell that they were trying to politely hurry us along. They were nowhere close to rude, just a little over solicitous. We shared the Tuna Poke to start and it was very nice. There's a little bit of heat to it, which I didn't see in the description so it caught me off guard, but still tasty. For mains mom had the Cod, which she enjoyed but was surprised to see the skin still on it. I had the Mussels and they were fantastic. Large portion of both mussels and fries. The mussels were in a beautiful chardonnay broth, it would have been nice to have some bread to sop it up. To finish we shared the seasonal Apple Pie with Almond ice cream. I loved the pie while mom loved the ice cream, so it was a good trade off. It wasn't too noisy and it was full, but not over packed. The door kept letting huge bursts of cold air in, despite the wind break, so we were a little chilly. I'd definitely go back if I wad going to the Lincoln Center again.
