The Smith is a solid choice for brunch - and while out-of-towners might choke at the prices, they're comparable to other NYC options that aren't as good. The food was solid. The staff was "off the hook" great. Noise level is so high as to make conversation difficult. Cleaner bathroom would really be appreciated. I'd go back again.

No wait for our table with a reservation (although it looked crowded and that people were waiting, maybe without a reservation). Great brunch, gluten free options (i.e. they could vary the dish e.g. no bread). It was noisy, but we were easily able to have conversation. Will definitely return!

The Smith is large & lively place! Sunday brunch is a fun & busy time. Be prepared to raise your voice for conversation. The food is hearty & delicious. Good sized portions. Staff is very attentive. Recommended!

One of the best brunches I’ve ever had! The eggs Benedict were perfect and my husband cannot stop raving about the pot pie.

So loud! Hearing loss loud. We couldn't hear half of what the waiter was saying and forget about having a conversation. One of the entrees at our table was way too salty. Very disappointed with The Smith.

Had a wonderful brunch, with a very good waiter. I would certainly eat there again, in fact I wish we had instead of where we ate the next morning. Great food!

We had a 6 o’clock res and were seated right away, which was a plus. However, our waiter literally hovered over our table and it was very clear that we were being rushed. We would be mid conversation and he would just stand next to us until we looked up at him. Very obnoxious and rude. Also, keep in mind the food is overpriced for your fun of the mill American food.

The atmosphere was perfect. Bright, spacious, and good size tables, all of which are a rarity in NYC. The food was great! I loved the Short Rib Hash. In addition to tap water, they also had limitless sparkling water served along side it. It was a perfect space for catching up with old friends.

The Smith is the #1 most consistently solid restaurant in NYC. I’ve been a dozen times or more and have never had a bad (or even just average) experience. The food is always good, the service is reliable.

Highly attentive service with good food makes for a nice place to have a "semi-serious" lunch. Although the tables are close together, the noise level was manageable and had enough space to feel comfortable. While not the highest-end of dining, well above "cheap-eats" venue - meaning it was a perfect choice for "thank you" on Admin's day

The noise level was near intolerable. The staff at all levels were attentive. Food arrived quickly and hot. Delicious and creative recipes for the items we tried. The gnocchi was singularly the best ever. Small portion kale salad was perfect starter size to split. Smith burger was great value and so tasty. Too many fries but has anyone ever said that?
