Overall a very good experience. Drinks seemed a bit pricey and service could have been a little better.
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!
Amazing drinks and food if you are looking to hang out in Lincoln Center area.
One of us got sick after the meal. Service was slow and inattentive, first table we were seated at was under extremely noisy air conditioning equipment. Thankfully we were moved upon request.
Normally I like The Smith very much. Yesterday was not what The Smith is capable of.
It was a great place to go for lunch with several new employees as we were able to introduce ourselves to one another and enjoy a casual meal.
Great value for the location. The menu is comfort food (not fine dining), and is uniformly excellent, as is the service. Casual. A great place.
Solid menu and great drink choices! Excellent service, too!
This is my second time t The Smith. Service was excellent. Quite attentive. The food we ordered was excellent. The side of pea shoots & spinach and the seared asparagus made excellent appetizers. I enjoyed the French style mussels with fries. My family enjoyed the vegetarian hamburger. All worked well.
I had heard so much about the salmon dish; however, I did not like the taste.
Consistently reliable UWS / Lincoln Center restaurant with a menu that pleases most. Jalapeño grits and Salmon Tartare are so great and uniquely theirs. Very solid and attentive service plus outside they accommodate dogs. Highly recommend
Great staff. Despite the brunch crowd, our water (both sparkling and plain) was always filled, coffee refilled, prompt attention in taking away our plates, never had to flag them, and great portions! Blueberry pancakes were the bomb! My cousin who flies in from San Francisco ALWAYS wants to meet at The Smith for dinner and breakfast. She LOVES it. Service was with a smile. Thank you for being so welcoming.
Great food and great cocktails! Friendly service too!
We waited to long for our food. I paid very close attention to what others ordered and how long it took our food to come out.
Overall, service is pretty bad. Even though I had a reservation, we were seated 10 minutes late. When we got seated, we were placed at a tiny table surrounded by plexi glass with absolutely no way to get any air flow. In all fairness, it was pretty hot outside but the placement of the table as well as the fans really made it impossible to be able to eat comfortably. I asked to speak to the manager and his response was … it’s hot outside, can’t do anything about changing the direction of the fans and said all he could do was maybe move us inside but that would take about 30 minutes. A completely useless solution considering we were just about to get served. The food was mediocre at best, the condiment I asked for never arrived and the waiter did not check in until we were ready to pay. There are way too many options on the upper west side to waste time going to a restaurant that has no appreciation for their customers. They act like they are doing you a favor by serving you. No Thanks!
Really great service and food, comfortable location with beautiful seating inside and out!
Delicious food, even more delicious drinks. The staff was attentive however not overbearing. Would definitely come back.
Dined with old friends. Staff patient with us . Food was good.
Extraordinary server knew about wines and different food items. Attentive without overbearing. Food was delicious. Will definitely return.
Nice variety and tasty food. Love the tomato cheddar soup and gnocchi.
Outside is less noisy. Was in the mood for a salad and they delivered: The pea shoot/avocado salad with added shrimp was fresh, the shrimp were grilled correctly. Nothing fancy, but perfect for a summer business lunch
I ordered the Ceaser salad with the grilled flat iron steak. The salad was drenched in dressing, had way too much cheese and the steak was cut into bite-size pieces for a toddler. The steak was also cold. I could’ve made a better salad myself. And for that price, I expected so much more
The desserts And appetizers were good.
Good food, good service (our waiter was excellent - attentive but not too much so), inside table near bar was a bit loud but workable. A fine casual option that provided a very good meal and a reasonable cost.
We ate outside and the service was excellent. Although noisy along Broadway, the outdoor area is enclosed which made it quite pleasant. All of us enjoyed our lunch meals, burgers, salads, sandwiches. We have been before and would definitely return again for lunch or dinner, but would not eat inside, as it is much too noisy.
The food was delicious and the service excellent.
Everything was fine and as expected. It's always noisy.
Our experience was fantastic and Luis was so attentive. We can’t wait to be back!
Catch up with friends
It’s one of my go-to places. Love the salads and the burgers. The fries are awesome.
Everything was wonderful! I would recommend it 100%!
Liked it. Great food and ambience. I recommend it.
As usual they’re consistent that’s what I like about Smith
Always consistent. Always delicious. It's my go to restaurant.
Great food and great service !
This is my 2nd time here and while I enjoyed it then but this time was very disappointing. I was with a group of 6 for a birthday. It started out okay but the service was awful. The server seemed lost and couldn’t answer any of our questions nor did he get our order right. The pasta dish that was ordered was minuscule there were like 10 rigatoni’s per plate, that’s not the servers fault but, he never checked on us and when we finished we had to flag him for the check. He walked by us a number of times without acknowledging us or looking out way.
Noisy but fun. Great food and an energized, enthusiastic wait staff .
Overall very good restaurant. The waiter's eyes darted around as he was talking to us at first. The waiter changed and improved. The food was good. We made a few custom requests and they did it properly.
Really good it was amazing dinner date and I would definitely come back soon
Always good. Consistent. Great service. I typically eat here for brunch but it was a good variety of choices for dinner.
