Smokehouse, per the usual, is consistently fantastic. For a special occasion, for an evening with friends, it never fails to deliver! The service is always top notch, the food is wonderful, and you have to love the decor, the red leather booths, the oversized movie posters.

I know restaurants are short staffed but we sat for 15 or more minutes until we flagged someone down to get us started. The restaurant was not overbooked there were many empty tables so I feel like the manager was trying to only allow certain number of reservations because of the staff shortage, but still it was not very good attention. The server that ended up helping us, I forgot his name was great and really tried to take care of us, it was definitely not his fault that this had happened.

Classic, must-visit LA landmark. Staff is friendly and very professional. Food is really good and drinks have heavy pours. Highly, highly recommended for ambiance, history and cuisine.

Been here a few times in the few months since moving to LA. Love this place. Definitely from another era but a great experience every time. Had a different server each time and all good. Food is good too f not the best , however, a terrific value compared to the more upscale steakhouses in Beverly Hills. One of my favorite songs on laces for as good time.

Throwing caution to the wind, we grabbed our masks and our vaccination cards and went to dinner at the Smoke House. We couldn’t pass up visiting them on their 75th Anniversary and as the Smoke House never disappoints we both knew that dinner would be wonderful.
The food is never anything less than superb and last evening’s meal was no exception. Starting off with their legendary Cheese Garlic Bread and a glass of wine, things just kept getting better from there. My wife’s chicken parmigiana was delicious as was my double cut pork chop with apple stuffing.
Kudos to Hector who, as he has done many times before, put real artistry into his profession of being a waiter.

We enjoyed attending during the restaurant's anniversary celebration. My steak was excellent! However, I ordered a side salad, requesting that it be brought out first, and our waiter forgot it entirely.

Great environment, fantastic memorabilia and delicious food. And even though the restaurant was mostly empty we did get seated right next to a booth with 2 LOUD talking business men discussing inappropriate not kid friendly topics. We also had a server that acted like he definitely didn’t want to be there 🤷🏽‍♂️

Overall 10/10 would go again. 🙌🏽✨

Food was great, servers were outstanding, and we loved the Music. I will definitely come back soon.

Sinatra Steak was hot and just like I ordered.

I know they can go another 75 Years.

DROPPED THE BALL. We have been eating at and loving the Smoke House for decades, but last night was pretty bad. The service was almost non-existent, they messed up orders and my Sole Almondine was rock hard like it had been done in a deep fryer. The Beef Stroganoff was really a tone of noodles and almost no beef.We were not impressed by one of our usual favorite restaurants.

We will be back, as I would guess it was something like an off understaffed night, but it was pretty poor all around.

Everything was superb, except for the lack of care by the kitchen staff when it came to my fiancé’s allergies. We asked for no mushrooms on either fish we ordered, and his was brought out with them in it, and we found mushrooms underneath my chicken cutlets after he had eaten done of my dinner. FOH staff took care of us very well because of it, but the BOH needs to step it up. We will definitely return, but our first experience should’ve been better.

Celebrating 75 years in Toluca Lake, the same year the Rams and my parents arrived in Los Angeles, the Smoke House is an institution. Los Angeles unfortunately has the reputation of discarding its history. From Ciro's to the Mediterranean to Frascottis to Chasen's and Scandias so many of our famous dining establishments and legendary locations have disappeared into the mists of time. Fortunately the Smoke House and its traditional menu survive. The Encino location long gone, thank goodness it still exists near the film studios in the community of Toluca Lake. Nine years old when I was born the restaurant and its diverse menu still packs in a crowd as Covid Restrictions ease on a Thursday Night. Loved my birthday cheesecake and the Sole Amadine not necessarily in that order. The atmosphere is as classic as the menu. People no longer dress for dinner there but shabby chic is not recommended. Treat yourself to a very special part of Los Angeles History and have a delicious time.

We had alovely and memorable evening with neighbors and friends. The service was Great! Our server, Who happened to be the bartender, Brian, was very attentive, friendly and accommodating. The food was perfect! We order from their 1946 menu , during their 75th anniversary, great value for our dinner! And to top it off, every second Thursday of the month Rat Pack Ricky is and stage singing beautiful songs to make it a perfect evening. He has an awesome voice!

We loved everything about our evening at the Smoke House! From the moment we arrived, the service was kind and attentive. The ambiance is classic. The food was delicious. And they made celebrating 4 birthdays and 1 anniversary extra special with not one but two songs!

First time visit to this place. Food and service were great. Loved the authentic old school look and vibe. Booth seating was a tad uncomfortable for me-- table seemed a little oversized for the booth, and found it difficult to adjust. Will be coming back.

We took a friend to dinner and I had a dish that I used to have in the 1970's! The Caesar Salad with grilled shrimp. I used to have this with my mom, so it has special memories for me. Although we supported this restaurant through the pandemic,
There is a new energy especially post-Pandemic and especially on Saturday nights!
Thank you for keeping this splendid dish on the menu, and also the Kendall Jackson Chardonnay!
