The food was amazing but it was very busy for Sunday brunch. We were seated by the door which had no waiting area for people coming in, which was overflowing onto our table and made the experience unpleasant.

We needed to wait 15 more mins after our reserved time. I understand the high traffic theatre crowd but timing needs to be more executed more precisely. Second time we needed to wait past our reservation time without any apology.

Lively American bistro with a good selection of well made comfort food and drinks. Great professional wait staff. Perfect for Lincoln Center pre-theater meal. One caution, the seats by the entrance can get a little “breezy” from the outside elements.

I know the vibe is loud and fun but decibel level was very high and not conducive to hanging longer and perhaps drinking after the meal. Food good, service good although less attentive as things got busier.

We were in the city to see the big Apple circus I thought it was 75mins long so I booked a 12:30 table. At intermission I learned it wasn’t over until 1:00pm. When I called to change the reservation they said they couldn’t accommodate me till 2:30pm then after putting me on hold they came back and said don’t worry enjoy the show we will have your table waiting. I was so happy - I couldn’t believe how amazing they were and accommodating.

It was very busy during lunchtime. During our meal, the host kept walking around the tables looking to see who was almost finished. The waitstaff started removing condiments and bread plates although we were not finished with our meal. We could feel we were being rushed and we weren't even there an hour. When we did leave we had been there exactly an hour. When I sit down at a restaurant to eat lunch, and not a cheap one, I feel that an hour is a fair amour of time. It's not nice to rush people and make them feel they have to eat and leave quickly. We had reservations so if they overbook that is the restaurant,s fault not ours. Won't be rushing back to eat here. Noise level makes having a conversation difficult.

While the location for Lincoln Center perfomances is wonderful, I would reluctantly recommend this restaurant . The problem is the sound level. It's entirely too loud when the restaurant has customers going to Lincoln Crnter. It's so uncomfortable for me that I will not go there before a performance .

Extremely crowded and chaotic, even at 5:30 on a Thursday. Tables are very close together and it’s very loud. We flagged down a server to take our order, then food was delivered by other staff, plates were cleared and then we flagged someone down for check. Not exactly a dining experience. Food is good and comes out quick, just know what you’re getting into in terms of an experience.

The Smith is definitely energetic and high volume (acoustically). Servers and table staff really work to the maximum and most accommodating. Well priced. The quarters are very tight and are very confining. The maximization of revenue is obvious.

Overall The Smith was good. We had made reservations and got seated within 10 minutes of our arrival for a party of 15.
I ordered the Kale Flatbread it was good but it was very very greasy and couldn't finish it. Service from our waitress was very good. Great atmosphere and decor and would recommend to friends.

We were a party of 10 with 4 kids after a show at Lincoln Center. The food and service exceeded my expectations. Between us we devoured the Paella, Cod, Burger, Short Rib Pasta, Bar steak and salad: all were tasty and well prepared. I came here with my wife years ago and was underwhelmed. This time it was good and not terribly expensive. The Smith is an excellent choice for large groups after a show. This place is fun but LOUD!

We went for an early dinner before the theatre. Our table was ready and we were promptly seated. Our server was fabulous. She was friendly and knowledgeable about our wine questions. The food was delicious and prepared as requested.
We would definitely go back again next time in the city.

The Smith has a great energetic vibe. The service was excellent. The food was delicious with very generous helpings. If you are at The Lincoln Center it's ideal for pre/post meal as it's a stone's throw from it. Value for money.

After a dinner at The Smith that featured a large black hair on the top of my pasta, and then being charged for the pasta twice-The hairy one and the replacement- I decided to give the Smith a second try.
My husband and I go regularly to the New York City Ballet, and The Smith is super convenient to Lincoln Center. I had forgotten how noisy and crowded this restaurant is; it was like eating dinner in a crowded subway car at rush hour, with the noise cranked up to top volume. The tables were so close together, there was not enough room for me to put my handbag beside me on the banquette-Real subway seating!
This would have been stuff I could overlook, if the food was not so mediocre. The oysters we ordered were only okay, and my husband's mussels were sandy, and grainy. I ordered the Fish & Chips, and it was without a doubt, the worst Fish & Chips I've had in 50 years of Fish & Chips eating in cities all over the world! Greasy fish, with a few (literally only three pieces) of equally greasy and under cooked chunks of potato- not sliced but cut into crude chunks the way I would have done it when I was 8 years old and just learning to use a paring knife, and loads of inedible (and yes, greasy) pieces of fried lemon and herbs that were clearly in the basket to make the serving look more bountiful.
The Sticky toffee pudding and the very professional and gracious server (I did not get her name), were the only saving graces.
There are too many good restaurants in the Lincoln Center nabe to waste my time and endanger my hearing with the Smith.
I do not expect to give The Smith a third chance!
