The Smith Burger

The best hamburger ever! Wish the menu had more items.
The service was terrible. We never saw our waiter. We didn’t have water for 25 minutes, I flagged down another waiter.
Great service! Excellent food: my usual Mac n cheese was a standout. The chips with blue cheese sauce were perfect and arrived warm this time: Yay! Salmon in several forms were all good. This place is always reliably good!
Loved the meal
Great spot to dine during COVID. They follow every safety protocol to the letter and make you feel very safe/comfortable! Have been a fan since the first location opened in 2007, and am even bigger one now!
Not as many heaters now that have built out the cover but still one of the best outdoor dining experiences !
I love the place my only concern was that it was very cold inside.
Great brunch! Brought my family in from our of town and they all loved the food and how spacious the space was. Service was good and we had a wonderful experience. Highly recommend the omelette or French toast, as those were our two favorite meals.
The food was incredible and our server Henry P went above and beyond.
We were seated promptly. The inside seating was properly spread out. The noise level was perfect. Our only minor issue was that our server took some time to come over to us. However, one of the hosts, or perhaps the manager must have noticed and he came over and took care of us immediately which we really appreciated. He was very hospitable, answered our questions, and took our order. The food was perfectly cooked and delicious. We frequented The Smith before the pandemic and were so happy to return for our daughter's birthday dinner. The kids loved it as well. I highly recommend The Smith for families. Good friendly service, nice crowd and great food! Great way to spend an evening in the city. And thank you to the gentleman in the blue blazer who took care of us!
Had the bar steak and eggs, and seriously it is one of the best brunches i've ever had!
I go here semi- regularly and have never had anything but a great time. I miss some of the old items from the brunch menu, but it hasn’t affected my attendance. Nothing says nyc like dining with Lincoln Center right across the street.
I thought the Arnold Palmers were refreshing and perfect for sitting outside in the sun.
the main waiter who took care of us was extremely helpful at every stage, and the other servers were good too. I was only dissatisfied with the main dish, a fancy veggie burger which was just not very tasty or well-textured. the strawberry pie had a good crust but had no subtlety of flavor. so the food disappointed me but the experience was overall quite pleasant.
I go to The Smith at least once every other week. They provide a delightful atmosphere with quality food and attentive service. It is a regular meeting point for me and my friends.
Lovely Sunday brunch- great choice and great menu with something for everyone!
My daughter and I LOVED every minute we were here. The waiter was so attentive to us and was a gem. We had two steaks and sides. The seasoning was perfect.
We sat outside at night and when it got chilly the staff brought out the gas heat lamps. It made the ambiance even better. We said this was our new spot to dine at when in town again. We’re from SC 🙂
Enjoyable Saturday night dinner at The Smith while we were in NYC over the weekend. Had reservations for 8pm, restaurant was pretty full but tables far enough apart for comfort in the Covid times. Very nice upscale “industrial” vibe. Food was good, had some nice Bordeaux, an interesting burratta with fresh peas was tasty and creative. My squid ink pasta with shrimp was pretty good though the pasta was over cooked and limp. My companion had a salad that was quite large with shrimp that she enjoyed. We shared a strawberry pie for dessert that was very good. Service was attentive but not obtrusive. Definitely a good experience.
The Smith has been consistently been one of the best food and service restaurants I’ve visited. They’re very clean and tables are set up with enough distance between each. I was very pleased during my last visit.
Food was delicious, service spot-on. We had a relaxing dinner and felt safe while out dining.
I had a great time here for brunch! The selection was good and the atmosphere was fun and up-beat. The location is also gorgeous with quick service.
The server David was professional, efficient, & knowledgeable.
Great place for casual dining. The staff are friendly and helpful, the food basic and satisfying, and the outdoor seating is a delight!
Phenomenal service, consistently good food, always right for a dinner with friends and family.
Great all around- very nice servers.
Great food! Love The Smith! Only negative is the noise level. I highly recommend The Smith at Lincoln Center!
Great food and service
It’s so so nice to be back at the smith again in the “outdoor” area. It’s being outside without totally being outside! I’m so glad the staff is as wonderful as before and the food is totally up to standard. Who knew I’d actually enjoy eating asparagus??? And the updated churro sundae is a must! The strawberry pie is also a winner!
As always, the food & service were great. However, we were there on Wednesday, which was very warm, and having the plexi "roof" over the patio made it feel like we were baking inside a terrarium. I'm sure that you want to keep that for protection from rain, but then maybe the sides need to be taken down so there's some air flow. It was intense!
Love the outdoor seating but suggest an opening be made at the top or in the sides to increase air circulation. And as the weather heats up, it can feel like you're roasting in an oven, especially as the sun beats down on you. You can't go wrong with the salads!
Consistently good food for so many years. Good for business or social.
Great food! Service is impeccable. One of my favs.
The food was amazing (as per usual) and our server was awesome! Thank you so much for always providing an amazing experience!
We had lunch outdoors on a day when there was intermittent sun but the heat lamps could not be used per NYFD instructions because they would be too close to the plastic enclosure. Other than occasionally being chilly, everything was very good. I had excellent tomato soup and very good fried calamari. I was very glad to see that the server reminded us to put on our masks every time he came close to the table. By the end, we didn't have to be reminded.
That French Toast is fiyaaaaa!!!
Yummy....a little pricy!
Always the best. Rock Solid. Management team always so welcoming and acommodating.
We were disappointed to be put in the very back room (I didn’t know that this even existed before). It was still quite loud and ambiance was not what we expected.
The Smith is a great restaurant for any time of the day with excellent food and a great, fun, classic NYC environment.
