Service was great and the outdoor seating was perfect for mid town New York City. Host was friendly and the wait staff was really attentive and polite. It was busy but the food came out quickly and we didn’t feel rushed. Overall it was a great spot for an outdoor lunch

Went for dinner on Mother’s Day and had the nicest, most attentive, and fun service from Lindsay. Food was awesome as usual, drinks were great, and they do a great job adhering to Covid guidelines. Felt super comfortable dining indoors and cannot compliment our server enough for her kindness and great humor.

Went out for Mother’s Day. The inside partitions are done nicely. You feel like you are in your own special spot. Food is always good. This time the Mac and cheese was a little dry but it was still good!

The Smith has a dynamic atmosphere, with good noise of happy conversations. The ambience is casual and looks like a bistro with tile flooring and brass rails. The servers are friendly and attentive. The food is very good and the menu contains enough variety to appeal to all in a party. Great Mother's Day outing.

I have been to the The Smith a few times. I love their burgers. One of the best burgers I have eaten. Yesterday my daughter took me out for brunch. I was disappointed that pancakes were not on the menu. But I settled for french toast. The French toast with bananas and hash browns with a glass of mimosa made a great Mother’s Day, just delicious.

Celebrated Mothers Day on Saturday. Waiter was beyond wonderful. Restaurant was very busy, as expected. Waiter allowed us to take our time, ordered appetizers and drinks, then put order in for main meal when almost done . Very leisurely brunch which allowed my family to reconnect after not seeing them for awhile because of covid. We were all fully vaccinated which also helped us enjoy being together safely. Some separation of tables. Food was all terrific.

Great protocols, excellent food but their coffee was absolutely terrible. They had clearly not cleaned the pods and it reeked. Mentioned it to the server but the feedback was ignored. Other than that the food was excellent.

The waiter was excellent and his menu suggestions were very good. Everyone enjoyed their meals. The waiters put bottles of flat and sparkling water on our table for no charge which was a nice touch. We thought the dinner was reasonably priced. All had a great time.

The gem Caesar salad with grilled chicken was amazing — juicy (not dry) chicken, crisp lettuce, great cheese and dressing and a plentiful heaping portion. Perfect for lunch.

This is a great place for a hamburger. The waitress was very helpful and the service was good. We had dinner in the outdoor seating area, which was very comfortable. The one chocolate chip cookie dessert was enough for 3 of us and delicious.

Food was pretty good, some items were even amazing, but service as terrible. Very busy for a Wednesday night and understand all the nyc folks are ready to get back out there but the service was unacceptable. Took 15 mins for anyone to acknowledge we were there and then we never saw the same person twice to check in on us.

The food is normally amazing and consistent but this time the “Bar Steak” (which I usually order when I go to The Smith for lunch) was very very salty. The service, as always, was great.

The Smith never disappoints Even when it makes a mistake it more than makes up for it.

I received an overcooked steak. They saw it changed it immediately brought fresh sides and free food and drink.

They know how to make things right.

Great place

Service was great she did her steps of service! Food was horrible the worst filet mignon I ever had instead it was two beef patties stacked on top of each other super dry. Also I understand and respect just like anywhere else wearing a mask when walking in or going to the restroom but in the middle of eating you have to wear a mask when the busser/server comes over and stands there until everyone drops there food so we can put a mask on it’s the most ridiculous thing ever. Won’t go back again!

Too many rules about masks being worn at the table when being served. I understand wearing masks around the restaurant or when just seated to order but no reason to keep taking masks on/off—service wait staff was annoyed they had to repeat that a couple of times-we were having a hard time hearing the staff through their masks. The table was not cleaned between lunch and dessert. I physically had to get up to get my own plates and silverware and napkins. For the cost, it was disappointing.
