The Smith is a casual American brasserie with four upbeat locations in New York City: The Smith East Village, The Smith Midtown, The Smith Lincoln Square, and The Smith NoMad, as well as locations in DC and Chicago. We care about every meal and every moment. The menu features bistro classics, seasonal fare, and craft cocktails. Walk in the door and you’re in for a great time. Whether it’s date night, drinks on the town, a big birthday bash, a working lunch, a boozy brunch, or an I-don’t-want-to-cook-tonight night, we’ve got you covered.

We were able to get a last minute reservation for outdoor dining. The food is always good and dependable. The outdoor service was spotty and there was a long wait to place our order. Once placed all went pretty smoothly. The Smith has always been a good option and is well located around the city.

Ordered the grilled chicken caesar salad and it was excellent - the chicken was nicely grilled and tender, and the romaine salad fresh and not too cheesy. Service was great and the noise level moderate. A good place to have lunch for sure.

We had an excellent breakfast in the outdoor enclosure on the street. Traffic noise was moderate. My avocado toast was outstanding. Sadly they were out of lemon scones.

Really enjoyed our first visit to The Smith. Our server was attentive and quick, but never made us feel rushed. The plastic barriers in place between tables made it feel Covid safe even within a very busy dining room. Food was excellent. We really enjoyed it and will be back!

Loved the burrata toast, street fair corn and shrimp & grits! Hot fudge sundae was delicious as well. Plus our waiter was super friendly. We will be back soon!

Great lunch spot. Waiter was fantastic. Went yesterday, 9/13 and had a couple of old fashioneds with lunch. They were made perfectly. Not too sweet and even though it should be standard, they use the single large clear ice cube which makes that drink even better.

Sunday brunch with my little sister. We ordered oysters and a salad. The oysters were fine but not the best. The salad was robust and yummy. The service was excellent as were the drinks. The best part - they let us sit and chat for nearly 3 hours!!! Great local spot and I would recommend.

Overcrowded. Tables were positioned in a way that the waiters/ waitresses would either serve one table and forget the rest. Took forever to get water. And after our food was down- all staff disappeared.

Drinks were wayyyyy too strong and didn’t taste very good. The tiki cup had a cute butt which was an added bonus. Food was good.

A group of six we were seated outdoors in the shed. All had different dinner and cocktail selections. We all enjoyed our food, did not feel rushed (we were there for over 3 hours), and were very satisfied with the restaurant, food, service, no issues at all

Food was expensive and just average. All members for our party had salads. We were there for happy hour. Not a lot of alcohol in the drinks.

Coffee was cold on two separate pours.

Would not go back. Sorryn

The food was expensive, tasteless and uninspired. Service was poor, the waitress forgot most of the nuances of our orders..and it took forever to get our food. An unfortunate waste of money!
