The beat is their COVI protocol! Felt safe and taken care off, the potatoes as an entree the best!
The servers looked miserable while working. They were also too aggressive about waiting to serve customers as we kept taking off our masks to eat and then quickly putting them back on while the servers stared at us, waiting to serve. Not enjoyable.
This survey is difficult to navigate and time consuming. I would have given you a better score, but you lost points for wasting my time
The whole process felt very safe. We were able to eat outside in open air and the servers wouldn’t approach if customers weren’t wearing masks so I felt better knowing they were safe, too.
Excellent Thanksgiving meal! Thank you!
We celebrated Thanksgiving at the Smith and had a delicious meal. They took care in the distancing while also providing kind and attentive service. An overall perfect experience.
Lovely setting. Very Covid compliant. Delicious meal. Will be back!
Kudos to the The Smith! Our family has embraced outdoor seating in an effort to continue and support restaurants. I have to say that your focus on safety and health is the best we've encountered yet. And all of that without compromising the quality of the food or service. Keep up the great work!
I feel super safe dining here in this Covid era! Service & meals as great as always!
Fair experience, that’s all.
Great experience dining at The Smith Midtown. I have been to some of their other locations and always enjoy my time there. The staff was great at making sure patrons were wearing their masks and politely asked us to put ours on while ordering since we initially forgot (they do mention this when you reserve as well). This is the first restaurant I've been to during COVID that is strict with their policy and I fully support it, especially since we were dining inside and socially distanced.
The server made a great suggestion for my brunch option and I enjoyed it. I would probably stick to their lunch/dinner menu items for the future, but still a great time at brunch.
So safe during covid, amazing good and ambiance!
Loved the drinks we tried!
Heaters were great and kept us warm outside in 35 degrees.
Food was great but service/ covid precautions are extremely awkward with having to put on a mask whenever staff approached you. There is no logic in that and no other restaurants in NYC that I have been to do it. Makes it uncomfortable and unfortunately would not come back because of that.
Average food, high prices but an accomodating staff
So let me just start this by saying that I’ve been to the Smith about 100 times-I’ve been supporting this restaurant for over 10 years and I’ve especially been supporting through the pandemic; I’m probably here for brunch every other Sunday and I usually enjoy my mea, enjoy the ambience and the service however I had a very different experience at brunch this last time. the first problem was the food. My eggs and potatoes were cold and had no flavor (same for my friend) and my coffee- that i asked for three times- also cold. The second and bigger problem was the waiter, Felix. First when i told him i wanted hot coffee he rolled his eyes at me. Second he told me i could have vegs in my eggs instead of smthng else and never told me he would charge me extra for it ($4 extra!) when i mentioned that to him he’s like “well that’s what we charge” with total attitude. I said do you not care and he said “no i don’t” and walked away. Clearly someone with a severe Napoleon complex -i really don’t care what is happening ,if you cannot be nice to your customers u should not be workingr in the service industry period. I told the manger who said he would“speak to him” although I’m sure nothing will come if it. Over all, bad food, bad service and A huge disappointment for a place i usually like.
My best experience dining in Covid -era:) I felt extremely safe at many levels ... service outstanding as always!
Came here for brunch, had good food, very clean and nice atmosphere. At first they did not bring the appetizer and brought out the main course but quickly apologized. Manager came over and apologized so did the other staff. Waiter was pleasant. Overall good experience would definitely come here again.
Best brunch experience. Friendly and attentive staff.
The service was impeccable! Great first date, definitely coming back again.
They have a really strict wearing mask policy that we have to wear face masks when they serve, get order, or take the empty dishes.
Great comfort food , large outdoor dining option and friendly staff
Wonderful drinks and burgers! Hostess and wait staff are excellent! Always enjoy going to The Smith
Not only excellent drinks and food, but their social distancing policies are out of this world! Plastic shields up between tables outside. Distanced tables inside. But best of all, the wait staff discreetly stands several feet away and doesn't approach the table directly until you put your mask on. I love it!
Restaurant’s ambiance is phenomenal! Food was AMAZING!! Thank you to our waiter for the recommendation for the pork chops! Would definitely recommend and can’t wait to visit again!
The service and food is consistently good, but having to wear a mask when food is delivered or anytime anything or anyone comes to the table is a bit much.
Great food, great service, and a great set up! We were regulars here pre-COVID and are looking forward to being back.
Service was not the greatest. Service was slow and the check was given to us before even asking if we wanted dessert.
Great food and great atmosphere. Highly recommend the Mac and cheese!
Cute. Went on a first date here. We had fun. Elegant and romantic. The food was good too. I had a good choice.
The hostess was a little too selective by not sitting us down until my daughter was there as well but sat others down without their whole party there because she knew them.
The rules should be the same for everyone and this was not right. I was going to ask for the Manager but didn’t want to make a big deal so just took it. I approached about it and she had the nerve to tell me the other three were in the bathroom but as long as she had us waiting there they never came out to their table. After that she told me that they were at the bar. Better get these roles right in the meantime I will take my business somewhere else.
Terrible way to act but I guess they can get away with it.
I ordered the Gatsby, the omelette, and oysters. I enjoyed all of it. I would definitely recommend getting the oysters and the Gatsby.
Like all the COVID protocols they have in place. Food was good as usual.
I was there for a late meeting. I didn’t realize they close earlier than usual places and they practically kicked us out. Last call was not announced even though I knew last call would have been 10:50 pm.
Unlike other restaurants that allow you to take off your mask when you at the table, also u allowed to order with no mask. Smith wants you to wear a mask every time server comes to your table or when food or drinks get delivered. Pretty boring. But the lunch prefix and happy hour is amazing. Wish they had onion soup instead of tomato. Staff is amazing and friendly they respect and value your services. Great place for lunch
Considering the circumstances, I was very impressed the safety measures the restaurant has taken. Service was great, food was delicious and I felt very safe.
I’ve been to the Smith about a hundred times and generally have positive reviews. This time, we Sat outside in the rain but under an awning so completely covered. Food was good but coffee was cold. Service was not great as there were only one or two waitresses working, so i had to ask for more coffee and my friend had to ask for her wine four or five times. Otherwise, good experience as usual!
