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.

The food was excellent but we felt we were rushed. Bill was brought to the table while we were still eating dessert. Could have waited until we had finished our 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.

The Rancheros Eggs were terrific. The blue corn waffle was light and a nice twist in Huevos Rancheros

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.

The staff was fabulous; all of them!! When staff members anticipate one’s needs and address them before asked, that’s just fantastic!
The food was outstanding and a great value for NYC.
I will definitely return and highly recommend The Smith:

The food and service was excellent!! I wasn't crazy about the layout of tables. No privacy, you are seated right on top of each other. It was difficult to have a conversation. A bit pricey for brunch, but delicious food.

A little crowded but it was a Saturday night in New York City. Service was good no problems with the menu or ordering drinks and food. Dinner served promptly and exactly how was ordered--staff efficient friendly and understanding of our needs.
Will we return to the Smith again the answer is of course.

Food was excellent. We had 6:30 reservations before a show at Lincoln Center and we were able to be seated right away even though the restaurant was busy. A little noisy and cramped (table next to us was literally 6 inches away) but I think that is a typical situation in NY restaurants. All in all, a great experience.

Our server was not of the usual high standard that we are accustomed to at The Smith - in fact, we did not receive a side that was ordered (and still appeared on the check). The food however was exceptional as normal.

Over-all the experience was a good one: however, the tables are very close together and the noise level was high. It was difficult to have a conversation with my wife. The food was excellent. I was a little disappointed with the lack of attentiveness of our waitress.

The food and service are excellent. I hadn't been there for a while. It's a busy restaurant and so there's a fairly high noise level. But the food and service and LOCATION make up for that.

Our server Kevin was friendly and helpful. He answered all of our questions and took excellent care of us. The food was delicious, and the prices reasonable. The manager Rebecca was also attentive and made sure all was to our liking. It was my birthday and although we didn’t order it, Kevin made sure to bring a personal apple pie with a candle for me. Thankfully, no one sang “Happy Birthday to You”. The Smith had been recommended to me by a friend, and I am recommending it to all my friends.
