A wonderful quick Sunday dinner between trains, A+ on cocktails, food and service. Experience fouled by a finger wagging, self important 14 year old manageress.

Food and service were exceptional. A bit noisy because it was crowded, which was the result of it’s popularity.

The Mac & Cheese starter is very large--enough for at least 3 people.

The burger was tasty with a massive amount of fries.

Service was quick and efficient.

Glad we arrived earlier than our reservation as place filled up very fast

Food was for the most part outstanding! We loved the salmon avocado toast and the short rib skillet over jalapeño grits. The coffee was delicious. The Bellinis were average. The omelette was below average because the filling wasn’t incorporated into the eggs.

Service. Prompt with taking our order but tough to get refills on coffee. She also spoke so quietly that no one could hear her.

Great decor but on the loud side due to subway tile which was really ok. It was just the music selection piped in that compounded it. The music just sounded like more noise and didn’t improve the atmosphere.

I took my wife and 7 year old daughter here for dinner before headed to see Wicked on Broadway, we were staying at the nearby Fifty NYC hotel. We are self proclaimed ‘foodies,’ and thought the cocktails, food, and service were incredible. Our waiter Julian was exceptional. I forgot my wool drivers cap, which they found and held till I returned the next day. We will be visiting The Smith - Midtown again!! Thank you. -PR

Maybe you have to be a hipster millennial to enjoy this place where you don't need to talk. The decibel level is so loud that you have to scream across the table to be heard. It's impossible to have a normal conversation. Food was mediocre at best: potato chips came with gloppy, tasteless blue cheese "sauce"--more like cement paste. ribs were so over spice rubbed and topped with a cloyingly sweet sauce that it could have been pork, beef, or chicken under it and you'd have no idea. Sea Bass, supposedly a specialty, was so overdone, it was rock hard. Salmon tartare was the texture of baby food--just nasty. On the plus side, the waitress was super responsive, knew we hated the meal, and tried to make amends. This is definitely NOT a place to do business.

Asked for a booth and they told us they didn’t, but my friend and i saw one. Also, i had a reservation and got there on time but they made us wait while they sat people walking in?? Seemed like they didnt mind us and sat the white people first. But other than that, the waitress was nice and the place was beautiful z

A large space which is good for groups in midtown. Menu is over priced and limited. Need more salad and soup options, especially at lunch. Should also offer specials.

Noise level is extremely high even when the restaurant is partially full.

Wait staff seemed disengaged but the support staff and hostess was extremely helpful and pleasant.
