Got good reviews but perhaps from a younger crowd. I see the appeal but pass on this place if you’re looking for a quiet dinner. Food ok, not bad, not great.

Very busy, very loud, slow service but the manager did a nice job trying to help. Food was good but not exceptional. It's a hot spot so good for young professionals.

Perfect for our lunch. Spicy tuna elegantly presented and absolutely delicious as was chicken sandwich and tuna w salad. Service was timely without rushing. Wait staff attentive. Awesome vibe business and recreational people. This is my new favorite restaurant for any occasion.

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!!

I LOVE The Smith! For breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner, it is one of the best restaurants in the city. Somehow, the ambiance and decor serves a casual bite with a friend, a leisurely meal with a group and a date night. Everything I've ever had there has been delicious, the hash browns, pancakes with whipped ricotta, and ALL the appetizers keep me coming back. The service is always spectacular as well. Highly recommend!

More of a bar with some food than a real restaurant. Nice to go there occasionally but not a gastronomic feast

The Smith is a consistently good place for a meetup with friends. Food is always good (not earth-shattering), and the ambience is lively. Great for groups, but not an intimate or quiet setting.

It was a little noisy and we had trouble hearing each other throughout the meal, however everyone enjoyed their meal and felt it was a good value for the price point. Also had a few craft beers and specialty cocktail and all were well received. Service was good - quick, attentive and friendly.

Had to wait around 20mins even though we had reservation. Once we got in, the table was well set up. Food is decent. Service is good not much delays. Price we felt was a bit expensive side for the food quality and ambience. Overall I would give a 3 ⭐️.

The food was fantastic. We were there for brunch. The menu had a great variety of options. We especially liked the eggs Benedict. I was not happy with where we sat. We made reservations and were placed outside the bathroom door. A lot of traffic in and out and the smell... One would think with a reservation you would be given a better table.

great food and service!
this was my second time sitting in one of the two-top banquet tables. they are WAY too close together. it’s such an awkward way to start a meal by getting dirty looks by the other tables that you’re about to squeeze between. we couldn’t really have a conversation because the tables surrounding us were literally maybe 6-8 inches away & we could barely hear each other.
it also made service strange. when the table next to us ordered, the servers back end was literally touching my shoulder. not her fault, there is just no room for her to stand. same for when food was dropped—another guys butt in my face and near the table. lastly, when our food was cleared, the poor busser dropped most of our silver ware cuz it is so hard to get between the tables. i get that you guys want to maximize your book & get as many tables in... but at what cost to service & ambiance? just removing one deuce would allow for some breathing room. love this place, just a total bummer about the seating.
