Food and wait staff were superb. Love the outdoor seating!!
Mask situation understandable but extremely annoying. (I am from a state where diners can keep masks off). I would rather stay home if I had to mask on and off constantly.
Food here always great but the salmon was a disappointment - too much sauce, too many flavors rather than just a great piece of fish.
Lots of great energy as always, servers very nice, ambiance fun vibe.
Impressive Covid protocol. Professional and patient server.
The Smith in Midtown NYC had a nice Brunch menu. The food was very good and the wine list was adequate for a brunch. The server was polite and attentive. When my glass of Pinot Grigio arrived hardly chilled he changed it for another chilled white I requested with no questions asked.
Midtown East may not be known for its restaurant scene but The Smith is up to par with eateries in other neighborhoods in Manhattan. Excellent food and the waitstaff was superb
Great food and service are the reasons I recommend this fine establishment. The coffee and the bloody Mary are both good choices. The avocado toast was gtreat too. Service was spot on.
The food was delicious and the service was excellent!!
Although we were seated right away, it took 20 minutes before anyone came to take our order. So we ordered an appetizer and drinks, which came relatively quick. No one came to take our food order for another 30 minutes. The restaurant is not that full because of COVID so there is really no excuse for the delay in service. A couple that came in 20 minutes after us got their food 30 minutes before our order was taken. It was just bad.
Waitress forgot about our appetizer after taking our order twice. Shrimp was a small portion and overcooked.
Outdoors is lovely thigh indoors can get noisy. Great food and service
It was okay. Ambiance is great this place is always packed but the food is just mediocre. Came here for dinner the other night and wasn’t satisfied with the quality of the food. Burger was alright, brick pressed chicken was good, ricotta gnocchi was eh and the salmon crispy rice was delish. For a seemingly trendy spot I was underwhelmed with the drink list. Seemed like they we’re trying a lil too hard. Keep in mind you must put your mask on when a server comes over. Our server was good and the staff is friendly!
This has been my favorite restaurant for years. It is not the same post pandemic. It’s a shame.
Food is always fine. Just fine., nothing more. Outdoor heating is good and I always feel safe. While I understand wanting to have a touch less payment system, one should be allowed to split a check using more than one credit card or be presented with separate checks in order to use multiple cards. Last week I dined in the Westside location and it was no problem, but this location, or perhaps our waiter was inflexible.
In addition to the food being merely adequate and the issue splitting the check, I was quite ill a few hours after eating. Not sure what caused it, but I will not be dining here again.
We dined outside and loved the space. They’re very Covid safe, and do ask patrons to wear a mask when staff approaches. The food was so delicious and they were accommodating with my four year old too, bringing her a cup with a lid. There is no kids menu but they do have a macaroni and cheese option that was perfect.
We were there for dinner with 4 children- server was very attentive and responsive- dinner was excellent all around. We would definitely recommend and return.
Easy comfort food, worse in quality than before COVID (potato chips stale, chicken sandwich felt prepared since a few hours before).
making the best of it in the best way - felt safe - great protocols lovely staff good food 👍🏻
Don’t really appreciate that the servers decide on their own will when to approach us and tell us to wear a mask so they can clean up, but we never asked them to clean so quick. Felt like they were rushing us to leave and it was only 5pm. Probably will not return due to the inconvenience
Great service, no wait.
Very good food and service!
Great food & drinks but only place I’ve had to put my mask on every time the waiter comes to the table. Gets a bit annoying.
Great outdoor set up and food as great as always - look forward to coming back
Excellent outdoor dining set up and cares about COVID protocol for their staff and customers.
The food was amazing however we felt the service was a bit lacking. No one told us the menu was a barcode so we were confused and the waiter took very long to bring us the check. Otherwise it was lovely
The service was great!! All the servers were very attentive to the customers
Waiter staff were very helpful with suggestions. Service was great
Fantastic service from the moment we arrived, through to the very end. The food was literally perfect! We felt safe and like we could relax enough to enjoy the experience.
Excellent first time experience.
Great service. Great food. Great date spot. Overall, great experience.
It was my son's birthday and it was our first experience at this restaurant. We have been to many restaurants where the ambiance was great but the food was not good. However, this restaurant not only has a great ambiance but the food is great and the server was excellent. We had a great time. More importantly, my son had an awesome time. We plan to go back.
Great food. Great service. What I need on a Saturday night!
I really like The Smith, the food, drinks, and ambiance are always excellent, so it pains me to write this. While I was eating at an outdoor table the other day, a mouse scurried between the restaurant’s planters that were connected to our table. The mouse was mere inches from our food, ran back and forth several times and escaped into a hole burrowed in the soil. We quickly finished our drinks and mentioned it to our server- his response was “It’s outdoor dining in NYC, what do you expect?”. I get that things happen, but I guess I would’ve expected at least an apology, an offer to relocate us to a different table, or a “we’ll look into it” instead. It was a disappointing experience.
The service was great as always
Love love love this place every time I’m here! Dates, brunch, casual dining, etc,, always consistently delish with great service!
Love the outdoor set-up. Great oysters and very good food selection. Service was a bit spotty while staff shifts turning over. Usually much better service.
Always love The Smith - consistently excellent food and service. Only complaint would be the proximity to the bike lane, but the restaurant can’t/couldn’t really do anything about that.
We always love going to the smith and are thrilled with their new outdoor dining set up. Can’t wait to go back
Food and service were great! Always love that they give you both flat and sparkling water at the table. Sat outside, very Covid safe, socially distanced, clean and respectful. Would highly recommend!
Excellent food & service. Great Covid-19 precautions.
Honestly the food and drinks were so good but the service was the worst I’ve ever experienced. Sad because it’s such a nice place and I’d love to go again but after how poor the service was I don’t see myself going back.
