The host staff was wonderful. We witnessed them dealing with an obnoxious and rude patron. He was aggressive, angry and completely out of line. The host staff handled him professionally, but sternly. We were very impressed.

Seating staff need to take a charm class, the guy (long blonde hair) walked to the table in front of us, dropped off the menus and walked off, never turning to us at all. Hello, you wait till the people are seated and hand them the menus, maybe say enjoy your meal. The steak was tough, had to saw it, not very flavorful. Friend enjoyed his Prime Rib, they forgot and put chives on his taters when he asked for none. I saw the waitress write it down on the ticket when he asked. Double baked tater was just ok. Cheesy bread, good as always but the ends were burnt and too hard to eat. Veggies were decent and done just right, still bright green for the broccoli. Creme Brulee was kinda blah, pre-made I think and kept in the fridge. I used to come here a few times a year. I think there are other places that I will patronize from now on, Arroyo chop house in Pasadena comes to mind. I do love the old school leather booths and wait staff, maybe we should have eaten in the bar area, dunno.

My husband & I took our whole family for the 1st time. We were celebrating his & my son’s birthday. My sons had never been there, but had my husband & I talked about it when he & I were dating 40 yrs ago. After we had kids we did not go. Let’s just say we had a great time, everyone enjoyed the food from the delicious cheese bread, prime rib, rib eye steaks dinners to the carrot cakes. Service was also great, thanks to Smokehouse for a wonderful time & meal.😊

TERRIBLE!!! All of the food was cold, the quality of the food was terrible, and they still have the nerve to have a valet. SMH never coming back here again. If you want horrible service, cold food, and undercooked eggs, this is the place for you.

Worst food I've ever eaten. Has a weird Russian mafia type vibe. They take your picture and pressure you to buy framed photos of yourself. Will never be back.

Why does a restaurant this big not have a decent vegan option. They presented me with a plate of streamed veggies (a nice variety). No salt, lemon or garlic. Just plain veggies. They could have been grilled or something. Anyway. My husband liked his salmon.

Love this place! Tablecloths, candle lamps on the tables. Delicious cocktails and, of course, the garlic cheese bread!

Hostess not very friendly...while waiting for her to acknowledge me after helping another guest, the phone rang rather than saying "I'll be right with you, let me take this call" or similar...she took the call.
When I got her attention on me, advised of the name on reservation, and started to re-iterate that there was
a request for a booth up against the wall, preferably in a quiet corner, as we had 3 out of the 5 people with hearing issues. She did give us a booth that was a bit tight for 5, in the middle of the room, when I inquired about the slightly larger booth that up against the wall, she would not give it to us, said it was for a larger
party...but, was then broken down, and at one of the table there was one person by themselves there.
Also, stated that we were celebrating 2 birthdays in the reservation request, and nothing was offered, as well...FYI. (2 of us are former Burbankers, 2 live there now, and the 5th person was our adult daughter who had heard about the Smoke House all her life, and had the garlic bread brought down from the restaurant on multiple occasions by her Aunt and Uncle..was anxious to finally eat there!)

I was fortunate to be there before 6 PM so I got a 20% discount for the early bird deal. The food was great as was the service. I can't eat a big chunk of beef like i could when I was young, but I really enjoy going there once in a while for a good old fassion meat and potatoes feast!

We’re in CA for a family function and decided to do the WB tour, where they informed us of this restaurant where many stars dine while shooting, including George Clooney; which he even named his Production Co. after

With that said, the drinks were strong, the portions enormous and delicious, and the motif seems original from its opening in 1947 which adds something to the experience

We have had many experiences at this restaurant that were very very good. This time however service was extremely slow and they ran out of what I had ordered. So not such a great experience this time but overall Smokehouse is a good restaurant.

The food and Service was excellent, I celebrated my Birthday and everyone had a great time. We had 22 people and we were taken care of and I'm glad I planned this week party. Special thanks to the bartender, Gary, who made sure our drinks were made and served with flair.
