well, I must admit that I always have the same thing since I discovered the
Smith burger with that absolutely scrumptious bacon marmalade and those delicious fries

so convenient to Lincoln Center - the only issue is that you can't hear your companion speak - it is so noisy!

but so much better than P.J. Clarke's from all points of view - always a warm welcome

Have eaten there many times. Great food and excellent service. Unfortunately always rushing you through dinner.
Received main course and appetizers within 15 minutes.
Waiter told to slow down for desserts. Although constant
hovering asking if you’re done. I think that was 16 minutes after we were served. What’s up ???

Asked for my pork chop cooked through and it came pink under cooked. That being said the staff took care of it right away. The chef admitted it was under and made a new one which was fine. What was even better was the level of care taken by one of the managers I believe her name was Makensy? Said she was from Iowa. Went above and beyond to apologize and take care of the rest of our experience sending us a dessert that she loved. Also taking the pork off the bill. She was truly sincere and made the mistake the most pleasurable I have ever experienced. Truly a keeper for any restaurant/ hospitality operation.

The Smith Nomad is one of my favorite places to dine. This location however has a lot of work to do to get to the same level of service for a consistent customer experience. They ran out of the Smith Bar steak at 3pm on Sunday during their brunch service, which runs till 5pm. When I used the bathroom at the beginning of my visit, the stalls were empty of toilet paper, the trash was overflowing with tissues; when I went an hour later at the end of my meal the conditions had only worsened. There needs to be consistency among the different locations and this one was sorely lacking.

Great spot for brunch before the theater!
The service was wonderful. We made a reservation and they seated us right away. It fills up in there quickly so I am glad we had a reservation.

I'd recommend with the warning that it is VERY noisy. This has been my only caveat with dining there, but it's a big one for me. The noise level is just so high. Other than that, it's a fine dining experience.

Came here on for Brunch on Sunday and couldn't believe how big and busy the restaurant was. Service was superb, we were seated straight away and the waiter was really attentive. Food was great, especially the pancakes. Great atmosphere. Would definitely come again.

I throughly enjoyed myself at the smith. The jalapeño cheddar grits are the best I’ve had in a long time. The waffles could have been better they were too doughy and dense. I like the waffles to be light and crispy. I give 4 ⭐️ for service and food.

We had an amazing experience! We had the most amazing waiter and he gave us complementary dessert because we were such a great table. It was a very nice gesture and was greatly appreciated. All the food was incredible. Cooked perfectly and tasted amazing. The blue cheese chips and mac and cheese were amazing. I had the tomato baked egg dish which was amazing. Overall beautiful restaurant and amazing food and atmosphere.

I had dinner there with my daughter on a Friday night before a NYC Ballet performance that we were attending. We were seated promptly and our table server, Nicole F, was exceptionally courteous, friendly and attentive. Our meals were delicious and served promptly. We easily finished our meals with time to spare before the Ballet and we were not rushed. It was crowded and busy, so it was loud but relaxing. I’ll definitely be back.

Lunch hour was too busy for us, the tables are too close to each other and it was extremely noisy with the high amount of patrons having lunch. The Smith Burger although good was pretty soggy and difficult to eat. Overall the service was good, but I would only want to come when there are fewer people.

Great place for a working weekday brunch/second breakfast/early lunch.

The pancakes are lethal however? So don’t eat those unless your metabolism can overcome them or you’ll lose a few productive hours. (Almost worth it.)

I choose this restaurant because it was conveniently located right across the street from the Lincoln Center, where I was seeing a performance. The "small plate" calamari was delicious and a much larger portion than anticipated. The entree meals (salmon and chicken) were alright, nothing spectacular. My favorite part of the meal was the smores in a jar dessert. I would come back to this restaurant.
