My sister and her kids are visiting nyc for her birthday the Smith has a perfectly mixed menu for all ages
Happy to support NYC restaurants during time of Covid. All employees were fantastic and respectful of social distancing etc. Food was great and wine choices made it even better!
Excellent service by caring wait staff. Restaurant followed all safety precautions and it was a wonderful experience. Highly recommend.
Very nice outdoor set-up which includes heat lamps. Staff is very careful when it comes to covid protocols. Food and service is always great.
Staff made a mistake on our order. Twice... But everyone was so nice, and the hostess so accommodating, it really didn't matter. Besides, she apologized profusely and comped our omlette!
It was a wonderful night out! They cared about both servers and patrons’ safety. There were heating lamps that kept us warm. The servers and managers were attentive and polite. The food was great! I highly recommend The Smith. Make sure to make reservations!
Always consistent and yummy. Great service and it’s a neighborhood staple
I said this to one of the managers when we were leaving, we appreciated all of the precautions that The Smith has in place. I know that it's a lot of work but my husband and I felt very safe dining and had an incredible meal to boot! The filet mignon was excellent as was everything we ate. Thank you!
They have done an amazing job with outdoor dining. The food and service are wonderful and I felt totally safe.
Always always a great meal with wonderful service
My friend and I have been going to The Smith-Lincoln Center for years because our favorite art house movie theatre (sadly, now closed) was near by. We always get the same two things to share: kale salad and gnocchi, both delicious. We hadn't been since COVID lockdown. PEOPLE: THE SMITH IS DOING OUTSIDE DINING BETTER THAN ANY PLACE I'VE BEEN TO YET! And when I went inside to use the restroom, I noticed that they've set up their dining room exceptionally well for indoor dining. I would actually feel perfectly comfortable dining inside here: the whole front of the restaurant opens up and the tables are set up WAAAAAAAY far apart. The outside dining experience was great. Terrific service and the food was delicious as we remembered. It felt good to be back.
The sweet/spicy chicken was amazing. The only thing I didn’t like was that they gave me two slices of small bread for the burrata and I paid a pretty hefty price for it, upon asking for more bread they brought it out with no garlic. Other than that, everything was fine.
Dinner was great. The covid safety precautions are amazing. The service was fantastic.
A great place to celebrate our anniversary! And their COVID protocols were excellent.
Great food! Went for Brunch on a weekend and got a delicious steak and eggs, a chicken sandwich, and a simple scramble.
Great at social distancing. Really values the heath and safety of employees and customers. Some of the best COVID protocol I’ve seen in NYC
Always great! And super Covid savvy so you can feel safe while eating.
The food and drinks here were amazing. I also loved how they are following COVID protocols very well. This definitely made me feel safer.
Aside from good food, friendly service, and lots of outdoor seating, I like that they're taking the pandemic seriously: temperature checks, contact tracing, strict mask-wearing for all when diners interact with staff. And my brunch cocktail definitely helped.
Nick and team are so amazing.
We sat outside and it was so comfortable and we were so well taken care of.
Can’t thank them enough for a fun meal
What a pleasant experience. They managed the crowd of folks that were waiting for tables beautifully, were over the top professional with CoVID guidelines to keep everyone safe and as always the food was FABULOUS! Snaps to THE SMITH for opening in a responsible manner and showing the world that businesses can still function with EXCELLENCE!
The Smith did an excellent job making everyone feel safe during Covid patrons and staff. Service was great and food was very good.
The $29 bar steak is the best steak deal in town. Perfectly cooked and seasoned, and better than most steaks costing double at other restaurants. Safety protocols are off the charts, too.
Love the smith. Happy it’s open again !
As always no matter the Smith location in NYC the service and the food never disappoints..my friends and I always come to the smith for great food and drinks.
Always a solid place to go
Excellent food. The steak was perfectly cooked and the mac & cheese might be the best I've had.
The restaurant is taking every safety precaution, with temperature scans and masks required for all patrons, along with taking addresses and phone numbers in case contact tracing is needed.
We ate outdoors in the early evening. Heat lamps are out to eliminate that autumn chill. Some traffic noise, but overall not too bad.
It was fine it’s COVID time how good do you expect it ? They are very concerned about health risks and I appreciate that!
Stellar all around even during these unprecedented times. Your safety and social distancing guidelines are top. Highly recommend for those ready to dine out.
We ate outdoors and they are doing a good job with checking temperatures, getting contact info and making sure everyone wears masks. The burgers are excellent.
Vast outdoor space and seems like a throughout checking process to check the health of guests.
Food is reliable, but no great option for keto/no dairy restricted diet. Great cocktail menu.
Wait stuff is considerate. I loved how they added sinks by the bar area.
where everybody knows your name. great neighborhood spot. amazing food for all. perfect service.
The food, ambience and service was great. The tables are very well spaced out with plexiglass dividers wherever possible. More importantly, when approaching the table the staff waits respectfully at a distance until all diners at the table put on their masks. All restaurants should be doing this to protect their workers. KUDOS to The Smith.
Perfect - so pleased with the covid preparations
The Smith is doing a great job accommodating customers comfortably. They are following all the right Covid procedures and still providing customers with a good experience.
The Smith has always been consistent, which I’m happy about! However, the service I had yesterday, I was not happy about it at all. It was myself and partner who were the only one seated inside. The waiter was not attentive at all. We had to keep calling him. Mind you; he was right across of us.
Usually, when food is served to the table, a few seconds or minutes later, a waiter would come and ask how everything is and would we like anything else. Nope! Not at all...I always find it rude to call a waiter by saying excuse me or being a school kid by rising my hand!
I’m not sure if I will go to this location despite it being across the street of were I work. I always admired service and consistency at The Smith, but this was disappointing.
Food was excellent and the service sharp and courteous!
Great meal, great staff, felt very safe. Highly recommended.
Good and casual. Team works hard to keep our NY life great. So go for it. Worth the money
Very COVID focused and safe, by far the best restaurant with separates tables.
