Sat inside and Jesse was my server. It was very cold inside and the waitstaff were all in coats and hats. I truly felt sorry for them all. With that said, Jesse was great and my food delicious, as always. Nice to be able to dine indoors again, even if it was rather chilly with the doors open.

Considering the pandemic and eating outside I think Smith did a great job.
I think they have the best choice for menu and ambiance in the Lincoln Center area.

Prices are not great but no restaurant is at this time. We do need to help them survive.

I love going here with my children. The small problem I had was looking around and seeing so many people without masks on. To make matters worse, our food was coming to the table so I lowered my mask, and the server had the audacity to ask me to put MY mask on. I did, and within 2 seconds took it off again to eat my food. I felt a little targeted as a "mom" like I could be the one to be made an example. Everyone should be told, not just me. Sorry, that is how I feel.

The Smith has done a GREAT job adapting to outdoor dining. Are we all crazy to be sitting outside in the winter to eat? Yes. They've created space between tables and there's still actually an outdoor-ness to it (Unlike those thick plastic sheets that just create an indoor dining outdoors) with plenty of heat lamps to keep us warm enough. I am really grateful for their attention to detail here.

We really loved the experience. Great food and great service, quite reasonable prices and a great location.
Lots of options with the kids, can also be a great place for couples as the food is great and the wine list is short but with great options.
We are certainly coming back !

The Smith is one of those rare restaurants in midtown New York that are doing things right. It helps that they have ample outdoor space, but they’ve also been careful not to box the air in and still manage to maintain warmth and comfort. The food actually seems to have gotten BETTER than before the pandemic. And the staff is consistently courteous, kind and responsive. Give them a big tip if you go.

Food was great, service a bit off compared to previous visits.
However it is COVID and outdoor winter dining so things are more difficult for wait staff.

Excellent, sensible service; enjoyable food, and great view of Lincoln Center and the sky.
Also appreciated heaters, which made sitting very comfortable on cold and windy day.

Usually my experience has been good at this specific smith location yet , my last experience was subpar due to a rude hostess as soon as we arrived to check in . We stood behind a delivery guy waiting next to be checked in and she clearly saw us waiting to be checked in and roll her eyes at him and then me as well didn’t ask if we need help until a manager approached us a kindly asked if we needed any help which I responded we did and told her to check us in then from there she clearly didn’t want to deal with me and my spouse and seated us at the most uncomfortable table until I finally asked her to switch to a warmer table which some were clearly available. Terrible attitude
