    We made reservations for Saturday evening we where told it was going to be a few minutes for our table. We sat down in about 10-15 minutes of waiting. Our server greeted us ten minutes into us waiting at our booth. We order our apps and drinks and our entree since we were ready. The apps came out freezing not even warm. Our refills took forever I’ll say about 15 min of waiting for a refill while you’re trying to eat is not at all enjoyable. Overall I’ll say I won’t be coming again the server walk around our booth seeing that we needed refills and didn’t do a thing. I had to talk to the GM to get this all fixed and make them alert. We love going out to eat for date night and this was for sure not the date night we had in mind.

    Great food, but with miserable service taking the whole experience down. Borderline rude and instead of boxing your leftovers, they just throw empty food container at you and will not do it for you, despite expectations for the hefty tip. It would be a great experience in an iconic place. This way, just disappointment caused by mediocre or poor service.

    First time at this restaurant with old school vibes. Went for lunch and ordered the full rack of baby back with the standard sides of bbq beans and corn on the cob (which I planned to take home to my hubby) and ordered a side salad and cup of clam chowder. They added sherry to the soup and it took it to another level. The server, Marco, was so attentive he had the kitchen box the beans and corn without bringing it out to the table. We were celebrating my girlfriend's birthday, and she ordered the tri-tip steak and said it was great. Overall, we were very impressed with the food AND the great service. I would definitely return and highly recommend this place.

    We are a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children) from switzerland, happy to visit the US, since nearly 10 days on the go from San Francisco through Death Valley-Las Vegas and now final Stop LA. We choose to go to smoke house based on review and proximity of the hotel Universal Sheraton. The restaurant is really easy to reach, the vallet (8 USD) is als very usefull - asked 8 USD bei stopping and again by leaving, what I refused, mentioning I had already paid. The food was good, meat really nice, huge portion, don't take a starter...service was also good and fast. I was a bit surprised at the bill, first it come with a service charge of 20%, yes 20% and then with the credit card it has been asked again for a tip...what I denied...if you are eating for 220 USD 2 adults and 2 children, without special bottle of wine (actually my wife is not drinking, so I got 2 glasses of red cab) and then they ask you 44 USD for service charge and 23 USD for taxes...total 287 and then want some more 20% on top? WTF???? so for me it was a bit of a tourist "tip trick" feeling! Online, it says sunday brunch get 18% service charge....but no mention about a general surchage during the week...after beeing back at the hotel, I was of course googling the all thing, and a lot of people are thinking like I do...thats also why I choose to write this review for people to understand, if Im ordering a plate for 40 USD, then Im not expecting at the end to pay 56 + taxes...if the owner read this, then be aware...but all in all, I would recommend the restaurant, but don't fall down to the trick!

    Overall had a fabulous steak dinner. A must is ordering a Cheese Bread when arriving and a drink. Not sure where the disconnect took place, I Open Table I made a note that we were celebrating a birthday. The restaurant had no knowledge or neglected to read. We had to tell our server towards the end of the dinner. Seemed awkward… he brought over a slice of cake with candle and was accompanied by staff to sing “Happy Birthday”. If you have a special event and want to avoid that awkward moment, call the restaurant and confirm.

    Celebrated my birthday at this old Hollywood classic place…loved the old time Hollywood feel with the movie star photos. Enjoyed seeing the dining room that La La Land was filmed. Our server Marcie was nice and water was refilled consistently. The world famous garlic bread was delicious. The calamari was good but have had more tender ones. The Frank Sinatra steak pasta was very good and shrimp scampi pasta was good as well with a nice lemony taste. Had a surprise Boston cream pie which was nice. Did not do valet and was easy to find parking close by. Will be back again for a special occasion.

    Martinis are tremendous and a great presentation. Food is old school classic and pretty good. Steaks were cooked perfectly, but the sides were mostly cold. The cheesy garlic is world-famous and super delish!

    Should NOT have gone there on Easter Sunday! Past experience has always been good at Smoke House, but you would think we would learn a lesson and NOT go anywhere on holiday /special celebrations (g Valentines/Mother Day, etc) Too many people/service hurried by an overworked staff !

    Enjoyed a lovely lunch at the Smokehouse. Our waiter Robert was absolutely fantastic. Our food was delicious but the service he provided for us is what made our visit so enjoyable. He is a rare jewel these days. Owners are lucky to have him. Also the man that assisted him was wonderful too. Unfortunately I didn’t get his name. I will always request Robert’s section from here on out.

    The hostess had a very bad attitude and refused to sit my elderly parents at a booth when they were mostly empty. Finally she relented after my mom got visibly upset and she stuck us in a corner booth literally on top of another party that the booth shared when there was multiple empty booths open that she said were for parties of more than four people. After we were sat there was a party of one and a party of three sat in the booths that she refused to sit us in. It really put a damper on my father’s birthday dinner that he looked forward to for weeks. Very disappointing experience.

    So different from my lunch three days previous. Noisy and crowded. Lackluster service as if we were an annoyance. Waiter never checked back after entrées were served. My porkchop was tasteless and tough. My wife's filet mignon was dry and over cooked not served medium rare as requested.
