Hyper loud noise level and ridiculously expensive small pours of wine for the price made this a very disappointing experience. My friend's mussels were bland although the fries were decent and plentiful. My chicken sandwich with burrata was OK(the tomato jam was tasty but decidedly lacking in burrata. All in all, for a $40 lunch - would never go back.

We arrived at the Nomad location and we waited a little bit before we had to go get someone to take our order. The people were very apologetic and gave us 2 appetizers and their cookies on the house. I’ve been to The Smith before but this was the first time my parents had been, so I was worried they wouldn’t enjoy it because of the service. But they loved it! Ny mom loved the fried green tomatoes and my dad the fried okra. Overall we had a great experience, so much that we came back for brunch. Very reasonably priced restaurant in the city. We loved the whole atmosphere.

I visited The Smith for brunch on Easter Sunday. It was packed, but the staff was turning over tables and seating people very efficiently. The food came out promptly and it was delicious. We had a wonderful time, I definitely recommend this place.

We planned brunch there the night before Easter. When we arrived, we saw a huge line with people everywhere. However, when I checked in we were seated within 5 minutes and the service was impeccable. Our server could not have been better- quick, efficient and friendly. The food was also delicious!

One of my favorite restaurants! ALWAYS delicious, whether you are there for brunch, lunch or dinner. Love the avacado toast best but the steaks and burgers are awesome too. Great drinks. Well run restaurant with likeable staff. Service is on-point.

Very disappointing and we knew that it would be noisy. It was far beyond noisy. The waitress's attention was sporadic at best. Not sure what restaurant management can do about the noise, but why would you eat out when you cannot hear the people you cam with.

The Smith is a "new" place for me- lucky me! The menu had so many interesting items to choose, and my smoked salmon was a good one. The restaurant was quiet, as I was there at an in-between time, which was refreshing. Our server was attentive and friendly. I will definitely return!!
