The Smith- Lincoln Square Ratings and Reviews
My husband & I went here on Valentine's Day, after an evening at the ballet. This place was hopping, even at 10pm! We had a slight wait for table despite having a reservation. Once seated, we enjoyed oysters & steak served by friendly waitstaff. Perhaps due to the holiday, they were out of both entrees we initially ordered so we both had to change our orders. The scene is very lively - not what one would call romantic, but I would definitely return again after a ballet or for a dinner with friends.
Excellent, though noisy, lunch space. Ordered their top burger, with raclette cheese, arugula and a green peppercorn sauce on the side. Cooked perfectly, medium rare. They also substituted roasted Brussels sprouts instead of fries for a $3 upcharge which really pleased this low-carb guy's heart.
We had a reservation for lunch and were seated promptly. The wait staff was very attentive and accommodating. The food was delicious. My only complaint is that we were not asked if we wanted to check out coats (don’t know if that service is available) and there was not enough space to keep a winter coat next to my seat on a long bench that accommodated many tables for 2, especially when people were seated on either side of me.
We had a 1:15 Sunday brunch reservation. The Smith was extremely busy. That and the tile walls and floors made it difficult to hear your companion. I ordered the short rib hash that was good when I finally got to eat it. It was served in a small cast iron skillet that made for an attractive presentation. However, it also made the food too hot to eat- my friend had almost finished her pancakes before I could eat.
The coffee was good and plentiful. Service was good.
We were meeting old friends we hadn’t seen in years and wanted to catch up. Although the place was completely full (it was Sunday at 12:30pm) and it was busy, we were seated at a table at the very end of the back dining room and had no problem chatting. We split the avocado, mushroom and salmon toasts and all were delicious! Our friend said the haddock sandwich was excellent as was our eggs Benedict. Excellent coffee. Overall just great - it’s great when you have a nice experience with good friends and a bonus when the meal is delicious from start to finish.
The noise level is deafening. You cannot even hear the person you are dining with. Front of the house refused to seat me since my companion had not yet arrived. This was despite the fact that I had a reservation, was on time for my reservation, and asked to be seated so I could have a drink while I waited. After 15 minutes of standing in the front of the restaurant I asked a different person to seat me and they finally, but reluctantly agreed.
Excellent food and service - a real find in a touristy area. Fried calamari was crisp and not greasy, steak salad was large and very good, both salmon and halibut dishes were delicious. Highly recommend this restaurant, especially for pre-Lincoln Center events.
This customer and date were seated 10 minutes early, and we were provide with water & bread. we both ordered "The Smith hamburger" and I ordered some soup. However, I noticed guests that were seated after us were receiving their orders before us, so didn't understand the aforementioned. When I asked our what was taking our orders so long? Our waiter said,"Because I ordered soup." The explanation made no sense, so I didn't pursue it.
We felt rushed. It was a date so we were looking for time to talk. The waiter pushed for our orders. The appetizers came almost immediately and the main course was handed to us as they took away the dishes from the appetizers. Otherwise we had a nice time.
I like the food at the Smith usually. I've gone to other locations so this was my first time at the Lincoln Center location.
The staff seemed like they weren't ready for the lunch crowds and the drink I got tasted really bad. Our waitress was lovely and the food was fine.
