Everything was exceptional as usual. They take all appropriate COVID measures which made us feel very comfortable.

I was disappointed with their food offering and also the ambiance. The Smith is one of my favorite restaurant but their reduced menu items for weekend brunch with windchill atmosphere in their back room was quite disappointing. I will definitely dine at this restaurant once more and hopefully they make an appropriate changes to its food offering and also temperature of the room.

I was really happy with the speed with which I was seated and given water. The outdoor seating was great—well aerated and warm, despite the cold, rainy day. The food was superb. My only complaint is that it took a while to get our food order taken and then while my friend was still finishing her meal, someone kept coming by to ask if we were done. Other than that, I was really please with the whole experience!

I’ve been here before covid and it was great. However, this time around, I felt like we were being rushed out of the restaurant, but I didn’t see the servers rushing anyone else. The portions were small and the pasta menu (minus the beef ragu rigatoni) lacked protein options. I ordered the butternut squash tortellini and the sauce was good but I mistakenly thought the pasta included the butternut in the dough and not inside of the tortellini, which had very little filling. My friend ordered the jalapeño grits which was good but the Mac and cheese was super plain.

The Smith is consistently good, and it's a great option in the neighborhood. The waitstaff is friendly, and our food came out quickly.

This was my first time at Smith under COVID-19 restrictions: I was very happy on how seriously their staff is taking the use of masks. Excellent service.

Went for brunch Easter Sunday and was seated indoors. It was way less crowded and hectic than outdoor seating. Staff was friendly, professional and extremely diligent in maintaining proper COVID safety protocols. The food was delicious too. I recommend the Smith Eggs Benedict.

Appreciate the free flow of water (both tap and sparkling) and outstanding service from Mario. The Kale and Quinoa salad with grilled chicken (warm!) was absolutely divine. Everybody must order a drink to truly bask in The Smith experience. Mine was The Gatsby for Easter brunch and the hibiscus drink did not disappoint! 🌺

The Smith has a great atmosphere for any type of dinner. We were there for an early dinner with our family (kids), but I would go for a date night or with a group of friends. It is versatile and always delivers good food (and when needed fun drinks).

I took my daughter and her friend for Easter (Saturday) Brunch at 10 30am
The market was down the block and the fountain was on at Lincoln Center.
We ordered french toast, bacon, eggs, salad, hot chocolate, OJ, and coffee.
We wore our masks when the waiters were near our table. Food was good, coffee could have come more often, and although my daughter loves dogs, I am allergic. I wish the dogs can be left at home.

This place is a joke. Everytime a server came to the table they would stop unless you put on your mask. Complete garbage. The chicken pot pie was also a joke.....disgusting. Dont bother.

Super nice staff, very efficient service, yummy food. We went for dinner. We had the chicken entree, the shrimp entree and the gnocchi entree. The chicken was big enough to take some home, but not the other entrees. A bit pricey but I will go there anytime I can afford it. We were in the back and the room was a bit loud.

Plenty of outdoor dining with very attentive and friendly staff. The food was very good with a good range of choices. My grilled shrimp included julienned vegetables. The vegetables were a little too spicy and over sauced for my taste but the shrimp was perfectly grilled.
