How did unusually fantastic meal, great service, and most importantly for the current time , The staff was extremely cognizant of Covid and how they interacted with myself and my guest.

I would highly recommend this restaurant for both business and social, and I will be back.

Wonderful! We’ve known for a long time that the food at The Smith is delicious . Now we saw what a wonderful job they are doing at scrupulously keeping indoor dining safe- following restrictions related to Covid-19. The server and other staff were did a beautiful job of mixing safety with warm and friendly service.

Good lunch - took a while for server to take our order and then would have got a second drink but server never came back. Warm cider was barely warm. Apart from that it was good

They want you to wear your mask every-time a staff member comes up even if your eating they do not care. We was rushed to eat was handed the check as soon as we got out food. Waiter forgot my drink and they just did last call at the bar. Do not waste your money!! Horrible experience

The food was good just thought it was a bit pricey. They charged an extra three dollars for a scoop of ice cream when they made it seem like it came with the cookies. So that was weird.

The heaters were not near the tables. Was very cold - they could improve the outdoor seating without comprising social distancing. They need to put the heaters near the tables.

Would not go back

The only problem we had was the continuous mask mandates. We understand that it is for safety reasons. But being on the outside among family, to be told continuously to put the mask on while you are trying to enjoy a meal was a little exhausting. I

Our server wanted to close out our bill because there was s shift change. We were told that we could still order more drinks/food once we did that. However, when we tried they told us no and that we would have to put our names on the reservation list again and wait. Had we known this we would not have closed out our tab and would have continued to order more drinks/food.

We had brunch at the midtown east location. Outdoor seating was well spaced/separated and sufficiently heated. I’ve always liked the food, and the preparation and execution continue to be good. Service was excellent from the reservationist to the wait staff. Policy requiring diners to wear a mask when waiters or staff take orders, deliver orders or clear dishes was actually very reassuring in terms of their strict adherence to the safety protocol.

We celebrated my birthday yesterday. The receptionist lady was mean. She was friendly when she welcomed us and seated us outdoors at the very end near the corner of the street. When I came back to tell her to have a busser clean the floor (there was food all over), she YELLED at me and said, “Wait til I seat these guests!” When she finally came back to me, I said, “I’m sorry, it’s my birthday, are you alright? I didn’t mean to offend you.” The busser came, with the same attitude, as if he didn’t appreciate cleaning the floor. The only reprieve was our server, Juan. He was so friendly.
