    Love The Smith but was disappointed with the service during this dining experience. Despite showing up early for our reservation, we weren’t seated for another 20 minutes. Waiter was inattentive. Will opt for a different location next time.

    My wife and I had strip steak which were excellent, cooked to order medium rare and delicious. We also had an enormous amount of French fries which were good. For appetizer we shared a shrimp cocktail. For desert my wife had a hot fudge sundae that she loved, and I had. The three scoop ice scream, the strawberry was a little little light on the fruit.

    The location is great for a pre-Lincoln Center show. The bartenders and waitstaff are friendly and very efficient. We added a last minute diner to our table for 12 with no problem. Everyone enjoyed their meal. My branzino was perfectly prepared and nicely spiced.

    People go to The Smith in Lincoln Square before they go to Lincoln Center but they would be better off going to a restaurant a few blocks away to avoid the pre-curtain pandemonium. The food is suburban meh and expensive for what it is, and even though I had a reservation I had to remind the host twice that we was there and they were 20 minutes late in seating us. Why, with all the great restaurants in NYC, even in that neighborhood, would people choose to pack themselves into a place with $22 avocado toast?

    Third time in a row where I had to wait over 15 minutes past my reservation time. This time I arrived at 11:40 for 11:45 reservation and was seated at 12:20 after asking 5 times and explaining I had an infant and was on a time crunch. No apology.

    Service extremely slow. Waited forever for our drinks. “Buttermilk” pancakes were like dry bread. $11 for 3 pieces of bacon. When we complained to waiter, manager was very quick to provide some credit back, a clear recognition he knows they’re taking advantage, but it was still $180 for a simple brunch for a family with 2 kids.

    Perfect for a pre-Lincoln Center dinner (practically across the street) or a big breakfast. Sprawling and noisy but mostly in a good way—it's popular for a reason. They've nailed several dishes and can crank them out efficiently. Pancakes and French toast are very sweet but irresistible. Fave was eggs Benedict with the sweet potato home fries. Busy but attentive staff.

    Waited 25 minutes to get our food after placing our order. Waiter was non existent. Since we had theater tickets, due to the long wait for the food, we only had 15 minutes to eat before we had to leave. This place is usually good so not sure what happened but it wasn’t a great experience this most recent time. Would I go back, yes.
