Everything was great as usual!!
Service at this The Smith location is excellent. Servers were friendly and gave us extra bread when we asked. I personally find the food too salty for my taste, and the prices are a bit higher than what I was expecting for the amount of food we got. I might come back if I feel like paying a little more.
Restaurant was too crowed and noisy. Tables were too close to one another. Service was rushed. Had reservation at 7:30 ordered salad and the main course came out. We were done with dinner by 8:00. Food was ok nothing special. Would not return!!!!!!
The Smith is always part of my top choices. The food has been able to keep its authenticity since day one. Delicious food and drinks. The only thing I will work on is the desserts.
Family member was playing in the Budapest orchestra at Lincoln center so we brought him over after his performance. He loved it
Food was good. Service was attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. It’s no more packed in than any other volume restaurant in NYC, but that doesn’t make it any more comfortable. Little more space and a little less volume would have made an exponentially more enjoyable experience.
Extremely noisy. I couldn’t wait to leave. Food was nothing special.
We were there on a Sunday afternoon at 1:30 for Brunch and had a reservation which was on time but the restaurant was packed with a line out the door.
I would suggest earlier or later. Noisy when full
I try to put my positive bias aside regarding this place -- in its previous incarnation, Josephina's, my husband and I got married there 27 years ago. So it still holds a dear place in my heart. But it was early on a Sun morn, the brunch was good (need more omelette selections tho), the noise remained low for quite a while before restaurant filled up, and the service was very good. Even the coffee was pretty decent. I love going here.
Great spot to entertain friends from out of town or celebrate a birthday or other milestones with friends. Great service, fresh and tasty food, comfortable seating and decent size tables. All around solid choice for a good meal with good friends.
crowded and noisy, tables very close together. Food was good, felt rushed.
Having reservations helped. When i walked in noisy snd crowded. We were seated immediately in the back and it was quiet - perfect. Waitress was friendly. Food delicious
Our waitress was extremely rude. She had an attitude. I asked her to repeat what she said for the special and she got rude towards me. Because of where we were seated we kept getting bumped and a glass broke and no one came to pick it up for over 15 min and no one asked if we were okay. There were too many tables packed into the back room. In addition to the above, our waitress didn’t give us two copies of our receipt so there was no where to sign on the ONE she provided to us and she became rude about it. It’s her fault that she didn’t print the receipts correctly. I was so taken back and disappointed as to how we were treated, it was appalling.
Brunch with a great friend of mine! We had a wonderful time!
Great brunch with great service and food.
Seafood was great, Ribeye was mediocre at best. Thin and sort of rough.
I love this place. From the hostess Joey, to our server, and Becky the manager, everything was top notch. Great food, service, and atmosphere. It’s one of my favorite places.
This is my go to place for pre-opera dining. The food is excellent and the service cordial but efficient; no problem licking your curtain!
Great recommendation-try the roasted Brussel sprouts instead of the fries with your burger!!
The Smith is a solid good bet for dining prior to a Lincoln Center performance. The service is the best and the food is very good.
Great atmosphere and delicious food. Felt a little rushed as main courses were brought out whilst we were still eating our starters so felt there was a little lack of attention but other than that we enjoyed the evening.
Not if you want to talk... it is unbelievably LOUD. Food is good and would be good for a celebratory night out... but intimate it is NOT!!
The food was fine but the restaurant was much too noisy: we could not hear each other. And it was very pricy.
Fantastic brunch - huge portions that kept me full all day and fantastic variety. There is something to suit everyone. Coffee was great too. Would thoroughly recommend!
We showed up late but they still sat us and I got my 100 pots on my reservation still. Appreciated that. The waitress was so kind since we were so indecisive on what to get because the menu was bigger then we thought. Food was delicious. I got the squid ink pasta. Would recommend and was the perfect amount of food. Really enjoy our night overall!
The waitstaff was really accommodating and kind. They didn’t rush us and were understanding when we let them know we were seeing a show across the street and would need to be out by a certain time.
Usually I love the Smith. The waiter we had this time was nice but not very attentive rice. We sat with dirty dishes on the table forever and had to flag him down for anything we needed. Not the usual service level.
Very good choice for dinner before a performance at Lincoln Center.
Awesome staff, food and ambiance
A friend told me about the food here and she was not wrong! If i could order everything on the menu i would have! The service was amazing. We got there early for the dinner portion of the night and they were nice enough to let us sit at or table and order a few drinks while we wait for the lunch rush to finish. If i wasn’t seeing a show after I would have stayed to order more or even dessert! I will definitely have to come back!
This Smith location is perfect for a quick bite before a show a Lincoln center. I recommend making a reservation, every member of your party showing up on time, to ensure you'll be seated and served promptly. The food came quickly, and was delicious, our waiter didn't miss a beat - refilling water and wine glasses - despite the busy hour. 10/10 would recommend for sure, especially right before a show :-)
Excellent fast service. Good food. Rather noisy environment made conversation challenging at times.
I was mistakenly seated at the wrong table. When the maitre'd realized that, he asked if I would mind sitting at another table. I gladly complied. To show his appreciation, he offered to buy me a drink and appetizer on the house. I found that unnecessary for an honest mistake, but I accepted his gesture. This to me was the sign of a class establishment. And oh yes, the food and service were excellent. (Not my first visit there). Last but not least, the waiter had been clued in on the comp, so I did not have to follow up once I received the check. I will be back again... and again.
Our waiter was very nice, and the food was surprisingly good. The restaurant is very noisy. Convenient to Lincoln Center.
One of our mainstays. The food and service are reliably very good.
I would recommend if you need a place within short walking distance of the Lincoln Center that has American fare. The Bar Steak was small and tough. Other wise, portion sizes are large, bar selections were deep and wide and the wait staff was friendly and responsive. Price tag here is a bit hefty. Chalked it up to the neighborhood and location. Sat inside and it was too noisy to hear much conversation. We walked across Broadway to David Geffen Hall. Very easy walk.
I had the Sea Bass it was Delicious. The Oysters are always great. I had The Cubano to drink. Can’t say enough about this place the service is fantastic.
I've been to The Smith a few times and every time is great. Great atmosphere, great service, and fanatastic cinnamon toffee brioche!
This was our first time eating inside as they are very accommodative of dogs outside. Great vibe, a little noisy, a little warm, but overall the ambience was nice. The wait staff was excellent ... had our alcohol ready for us when the legal time was reached. Eggs Benedict are a favorite, and they were prepared just right. We would have liked to linger longer to talk, but the place was packed, so we'd freed the table up. Very busy for brunch. Once it warms up, the outside seating is even better.
This place is far too loud for no reason. It wasn’t even busy and you have to shout. Our waitress forgot about us u til we literally cleared our own plates. Every dish is $10 overpriced. Not worth it
