    Ordered the lobster roll with fries, which I’ve ordered before. Very disappointed. Lobster roll was smothered in way too much Mayo and fries were soggy.

    We love The Smith. We are big fans of the Watermelon Gazpacho and the chips with blue cheese fondue, which we order as often as we can. One family member has serious food limitations and our server was incredibly attentive to our needs. The devil is in the details and this is the first restaurant in ages to really nail it. Thank you.

    We loved the food, after we were both given the same menu. Unfortunately we didn’t meet our server til the end of the meal, as everyone from the manager to neighboring servers took care of us instead. It was maybe the loudest, busiest restaurant I’ve ever been in, nearly impossible to have a conversation, and the tables are basically on top of each other, so everyone is absolutely shouting. Fantastic food though. Absolutely bonkers good. Wondering if the other locations are this chaotic.

    Had an outside reservation for 6:30 and had to wait c30min for a table. Sound is cacophonous indoors. They seated us finally in a hot little corner outdoors surrounded by plexiglass and the concrete column of the building. The sidewalk and sidewalk grill under the table was sticky, dirty and a bit stinky. The food was ok. They gave us hummus and veggies to start, which I thought was complimentary, since we hadn't ordered it. We were charged $12 for it, however. I didn't argue because I was so exhausted by the whole experience by time we got the check that I didn't want to prolong the experience by arguing it. Won't be going back.

    Overall a lovely Sunday brunch. Service very good, food fresh and well made. Sound level high. This wasn't a good match for me, but that's my needs and not the restaurant.

    The hostess was very helpful as I had called and we were really Ming late from the theater. She had a table for us in the main dining room as soon as possible. The server was less than amicable and obviously not having a good night. It seemed as if we were an imposition. Her back waiters and food runners were excellent.

    I’ve had much better meals here in the past, even the lemonade was sub par- the drink class was cracked, the tomato appetizer was really not good nor was the salad or the salmon- huge disappointment from one of our typically consistently good eateries

    We had an enjoyable celebratory dinner. We opted for the outdoor seating on a balmy evening. Noise level was a bit loud to hold across the table conversation. The drinks, appetizer, meal, and dessert were all delicious. The Smith does not disappoint in a good meal.

    Wanted a light breakfast. The croissant egg sandwich was wonderful and loved the light salad accompaniment. But I feel a little too pricey for $21. Cappuccino was also delicious.

    Pre-Jackson Browne concert dinner for two. Was looking forward to The Smith and it's a very nice space with outdoor dining. Unfortunately we were shown to a table in a remote back part of the restaurant which you can't even see when you walk in. So all ambiance and energy from the main dining room was gone. Tables were very close together and very small. As back room filled up, we literally had people within two feet of us on both sides. Drinks were so-so (The Dirty and The Mule) and food was okay. We had higher expectations based on preview of menu. But worse part of the experience was the constant need to rearrange glasses, plates, oyster platter, bread plate, two large water bottles (filtered and sparkling (a nice touch)) at our small table for two. Food came out fairly quickly and it was a challenge to find room. Not something I really expect when dining out. I understand maximizing the number of covers each night but not at the expense of the customer's experience.

    Sunday Brunch. Service was trying but was run ragged and too many people covering the same tables not talking to each other. My fresh toast came out cold, mushy on one end and dry on the other. Great, they took it off the menu and brought me a salad, Sadly it was drowned in dressing. My champagne glass was knocked over because the table was not stable and it took 3 tries to get it replace and no one noticed for a good 5 minutes that the table and napkins were soaked despite passing us multiple times. Empty side dishes were left on the table when the waitperson took dirty dishes off the table next to us, they literally waved their hand over our table to pick up the plate on the other table. I have had great experiences at other Smiths but this was a bit of a disaster.
