Well, great customer service. Although, the ribs were burnt and very dry. Very small ribs, I kind of expected more from a smoke house but the part we looked forward to the most ended up being a disappointment. Although I do love the service and the atmosphere of the restaurant, carries a lot of history.

The reason why the smokehouse has been there for years is because they exude quality service and excellence.

Our experience was wonderful. The food comes out very fast which is awesome. We started out with the artichoke which was done perfectly. We moved on to the famous cheese bread, which was in fact very cheesy. Not in a real cheese kind of way, but a sprinkled processed cheese kind of way. My husband had a steak and I had the BBQ half chicken with a baked potato. All very good cooked to perfection and we will be back.

Two notes: The front staff really didn't dress the part of a nice fancy restaurant which was a bit odd to me. Wearing a t-shirt with stretch pants meant for a yoga class isn't what I would have my staff wearing. Our waitress was great but she was too quick to leave every time and I wanted to ask a question each time or ask for something and bam she was gone in a flash. SLOW down, connect with your customers, take a beat and listen...that's all!

I've loved the Smokehouse for many years, and this is he first time I ordered a half rack of ribs. Sorry, guys. very little meat on those ribs. But we'll be back anyway.

How could you not be pleased with such a dignified and comfortable place? The service is friendly, swift and unobtrusive. The cocktails are classic and classy. The ambience is cool, quiet and secure. The salads are cool and refreshing, and the Reuben sandwich is to die for. I want to come back to enjoy the handsome bar. I hope the place continues forever.

Historic venue. Would be a fun place for tourists because of the history and memorabilia on display. Service was very good. Food was good, not great and rather pricey for lunch.

The Smoke House was the perfect place for a reunion of four women who went to high school together! The atmosphere is inviting and comfortable, the service exceptional, and the food was excellent! Definitely the high point of our week. They make the BEST Cobb Salad!!

This is a classic icon. It's wonderfullyold school and always brings you back to the old Hollywood glam days of three martini lunches. It's a gem of history and SO GLAD they survived the pandemic.

We started with Old Fashioned cocktails, the best I've had. After shrimps and salad, we tried the chateaubriand and it was tremendous. The food was excellent value and highest quality. The Smoke House moves to the top of our list.

The Smokehouse continues a tradition in service and food that has become extinct elsewhere. Perhaps they have over done the pictures of the stars somewhat for atmosphere - the best ones are from the early days of the restaurant.

Great old Hollywood atmosphere and excellent service. The food is good but be prepared for large portions. Lunch standouts are the Ruben, clam chowder, wedge salad, and their garlic bread.

I would go again BUT, the restaurant does need some TLC. Yes, it's a historic restaurant with a lot of memorabilia on the walls but it just needs to be refreshed. The ceiling is dated and looks dirty. They have a couple of beautiful rooms with red leather booths and next to it a room with (what looks like) fold-up tables with table cloths and chairs. Almost like when you invite 20 people to a sit-down dinner and someone brings a surprise relative and you hurry to put extra seats and place settings... yea like that.
The bar area was amazing and when I return I will absolutely request to be seated in this area.
The food was delicious! We had the Sinatra dish and bread with Boston cream cake for dessert. It was more than enough for my husband and me to split. We ordered our favorite cocktail an old fashion. The cocktail was on point and yummy.
The Smoke House has stood the test of time with good reason and I look forward to returning.

We chose dine in versus dine outside. It was a full house, and it was extremely warm inside. Noise level was loud with it being full house which made conversations difficult. Overall good food with great company.

Generally the food was good. The vegetables could have been cooked more. The cole slaw was just so-so. The filet Mignon was good. The prime rib was good and the pasta dish was good. The food is overpriced. It's okay for once in a while for a treat. The artichoke and spinach dip was good. However, the stuffed mushroom were only warm.

The service was good; very attentive. The food was only adequate. The lobster was overcooked and rubbery, the shrimp also overcooked, the veggies have been better. Very disappointing and uncharacteristic and not worth the price. I've eaten here before and have not had a problem. I check this off to post-pandemic staffing. Hopefully, things will improve in a few weeks, (The garlic cheese bread was fantastic, as usual). My recommendation is pending.

I was brought the wrong steak, then I was given another steak which was cooked rare not the medium rare that I ordered. The waiter seemed to be in a rush. Sad, I liked coming to this place.
