As always great food and service at the Smith. We went for brunch and ordered the Pancakes and the Avocado salad. Both were delicious.
I expected a more varied menu. I thought the prices were high but true it is New York City. Too noisy inside. Pleasant outside. Good social distancing.
Eh, what can I say. This place is super overrated. I ordered the omelette with the goat cheese and roasted tomatoes. The tomato was so over salted I couldn't even eat them. The rest of the omelette was...fine? But the whole thing is expensive and mediocre. For the same price at a place like Accent Cafe for example, (3rd and 30th) you get the omelette with a meat, cheese and vegetable, side salad, potatoes, and a personal loaf of bread with cream cheese. I say this to compare value for example.
Food: 1/5 for parts that were actually inedible
Ambiance: 3/5 (it's fine, literally mediocre fine)
Price: 1/5. It's expensive and the value isn't there
Service: 4/5 good service and fast turn around.
Overall-seriously, don't bother. Go to one of the million other places in NYC.
The Smith was a great choice. Food and service were excellent. Great location.
The best mac and cheese ever and anywhere! I is a lively [lace with good food and good service.
Friend moving out of town dinner. Wishing them all the best.
Great ambience and staff members!
The pandemic isn't keeping the Smith from delivering first class service and perfectly prepared food. Salmon is always perfectly prepared.
The Smith is fine if you have an expense account. For what it offers, I think it is fairly overpriced. The outdoor set-up is very nice.
Great wait staff. Loved the food.
the lunch experience was made wonderful with more than attentive and caring staff. everyone is "on" ...helped me with a cellphone as well. terrific and have always used this restuarant as a favorite.. all thanks. b
Very nice place. One of the best veggie burgers that I have eaten
Great experience -- EXTREMELY accommodating and OUTSTANDING customer service. Food was delicious as usual!
The food took some getting used to, but it is “American” so, lots of spices from everywhere. The service was amazing. Quick and lovely. Our waiter was a woman and she was delightful as well as attentive. We will be back!
Fine. Nothing special.
Nice restaurant, food was good, drinks were good too. Service was great
Everything was amazing! This is my favorite nyc spot. Now that I live in Chicago I visit that location frequently. Thanks for always being reliable and fun!
Consistently delicious and efficiently run.
Great food quality! Great service and beautiful outdoor seating.
Great food, lovely outdoor setting, friendly staff.
Our server was fantastic. Great recommendations. Very friendly and nice.
Popular location, great vibe, limited choices. Nice touch to provide sparkling water gratis. Service is prompt and friendly.
Outstanding service and food quality.
I chose The Smith because of their stringent covid protocol. I had already eaten at the Nomad location with friends visiting from out of state and needed to have a business dinner the following week. I usually avoid anything that is a chain, but I had a good experience previously and decided not to mess with a formula that works. The food was very good both times and the service was great. It was my first time eating indoors in 18 months and table spacing made me very comfortable. Now for the food. The crispy calamari and crab cakes app (I'm from DC and very picky) were very good. I loved the salmon entree, and guests polished off lobster rolls and salads so it was a win-win. Necessity sent me there, but the food will definitely bring me back.
Oysters were great, but the main course salads were disappointing. Service was appropriate. We dined outdoors; indoors is deafening.
Amazing experience! 10/10. Would 100% recommend.
Food was tasty. Service was good too.
I have always loved the smith. Came in for a late lunch with my family and everything was great! The two ladies outdoors hosting were super nice and the service was quick and polite. Everyone was ready to assist if we needed anything. The food is the best everything was delicious, do yourself a favor get the spaghetti it was so good I even ate my leftovers the next day. Their cocktail were tasty too and pretty.
Great spot for a business meet up
We got a great table given it was socially distanced there was a good vibe food and service were great
Loved it! The food, space and drinks!
Great energy, Excellent food and service! We are looking forward to another wonderful meal there!
Always reliable. Great outdoor doning space, good food. Need vaccination proof for indoor dining.
Terrible service, righteous waiters thinking they’re somehow better than you
Service was great and the location very nice, but I found the food greasy and the peach Bellini was so bitter and lacking peach, that I couldn’t finish it. Just okay.
Best brunch so far after our second visit since 2019. Food was amazing and well worth the money. Will visit again soon!
Sitting outside in the heat and humidity was alleviated by well-spaced tables and strategically placed fans. Our lunch turned into dinner as my friend and I caught up after a too-long Covid separation. The servers could not have been nicer or more accommodating. The food was just right, making for an altogether great day.
The food and service were great as always. I have been going to the smith since they first opened and am never disappointed. My friends birthday was made extra special with yummy chocolate chip cookies on the house!! Very thoughtful!!
Outstanding restaurant across from Lincoln Center. Amazing food, service and ambience. Literally the best burger I had in my life. In fact everything we ordered we loved. We had several appetizers, the street corn, the fried calamari, the mac and cheese and others were 10 out of 10 and the stick toffie desert and blueberry pie was a great way to end this 10 star meal. The Manager Mark and the waiter Michael were as professional and courteous as it gets. A wonderful experience and will definitely be back. They also handled the Covid regulations in an outstanding manner with decorum and efficiency. You will not be disappointed with The Smith Lincoln Center.
