I went to dinner for restaurant week in early August 2021. The Smith was very crowded for a Wednesday evening.
The 3-course dinner was great and affordable ($39). We started with the delicious Mediterranean salads, seabass and grilled marinated chicken for entrees and ended with brown butter almond cake and ice cream for dessert.
The service was good. I had a weird experience with the hostess, who pointed to me and my guest in the direction of our table instead of walking us to the table and providing menus. I was confused and went inside to speak to another host. He apologized profusely for her behavior. The service and waitstaff interactions were great after that. Despite that little hiccup, I look forward to returning.
Drinks are delicious! Recommend the Pool Party drink. Also a nice, spacious outdoor set up with pretty lights. Bit of a wait for an outdoor seat, but only about 5-10 mins past our reservation time, so not too bad.
60 minutes before I had a drink or could place an order.
Would only recommend if you need something fast and the location is convenient. Was just OK across the board.
As always - one of my favorite place to eat! Roasted tomato soup was soooo good, I ordered second portion! Kids love the place as well! Keep it up!!! You can’t lower the standard! Stay on top!
Food was great service good. Not a good choice for quiet dinner, but very festive.
Such a classically beautiful place… a must see dining experience for all! Can’t wait to go back again.
Buen servicio, buena comida pero costoso.
One dish did not arrive. One dish was not what ordered.
The kale and kinoa salad with shrimp was delicious and so was the brussel sprouts (with a request to make them "crispy.") Iced tea was very good too. I had leftover brussels so they gave me a "to go" box so I could pack it up and have leftovers at home.
I thought they did an excellent job managing a very busy restaurant. Everything was spot on !
It really is an awesome place. Great food, great service, just a little bit to noisy but great overall.
Our server, Vanessa was amazing and really attentive to us. She was thoughtful and gave us great suggestions on what to order. Thank you - I will be back!! 😃
Yummy food, friendly service, and great ambience to enjoy. Will come back again!
Love the Cesar salad the oysters are the best
Great experience all around, the noise level was a bit hard to bear - inside seating seemed worse for noise. Food was amazing, especially the lemon scones, service great. They were out of peach purée for bellinis, but otherwise a perfect brunch!
WE WERE CELEBRATING MY SISTER'S BIRTHDAY.
AT THE SMITH WE HAD A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE
OF FOOD AND FELLOWSHIP.
Our waiter was excellent and made our visit smooth and enjoyable.
We love The Smith! The food is wonderful. Try the sticky toffee pudding!
Amazing! Good food and ambiance. Had a great table outside. The Covid precautions are perfect.
Feels a bit being rushed as typical NYC services at a poplar restaurant outdoor dining on a beautiful day
Excellent omelette and poached eggs on avocado toast- lovely to sit outside and feel protected from any crowded space. Attentive service as usual!
Excellent! Kale salad with added Salmon is delicious !
Always a good experience here!
Consistent kitchen, decent service. Good cocktails
Delicious meal and very good service
A little loud in there but not a problem
When one thinks he can sit outside and breathe fresh air think again. We sat in a plexiglass bubble which is really the same as sitting indoors. It was hot and we could not breathe any fresh air. Service was terrible and the food came out cold.
Always great, consistent, fun, and tasty.
Awesome service, good food, the back area accoustic can be really loud when other guests chatting and laughing.
too limited of a menu....seems skewed towards the avocado and toast crowd.
Two very loud. Much too loud. Inside the tables are far apart but it still is amazingly hard to hear each other. And the air conditioning doesn’t seem to be working inside. Otherwise the brick chicken was great.
Went for a sunday outdoor brunch! Everything, including breakfast cocktails, was delightful!!! I only gave 4/5 fir food because they didn’t have specific gluten free options… but that’s me being picky. What we did order was delicious!
Dined frequently at the Smith- requested a quiet table- we were seated in the front(busy, noisy, etc.).
Hostess was curt, salmon dry, quite disappointed this visit.
It was a good experience, but there were a few little things. The steaks were not cooked how we asked them to be. Medium was medium well for one of us and the other asked for medium but received medium rare. We were seated in the very back of the restaurant by the bathroom and next to the server station…I would’ve asked for a different spot if it weren’t for the air conditioner right there. Noise level was high most of the time, mainly due to the large party next to us…but that’s not something The Smith can do anything about. Overall good experience. Would come here again but would not sit in the same area.
Overall a very good experience. Drinks seemed a bit pricey and service could have been a little better.
I enjoyed the Restaurant Week dinner very much. The service was outstanding. The place is a bit noisy, but bearable.
Excellent drinks and dinner.
Restaurant week special…main entree small
Very busy. Attentive waiter. Very good value during restaurant week. Pleasantly surprised how delicious the Ricotta gnocchi and rigatoni a la vodka were. Would definitely order again.
Great place to go for Restaurant Week -- fast service, great lunch, tasty food, and the sun was shining!
