The Smoke House Ratings and Reviews
Me and my sisters took out Mom to lunch. The Smokehouse is great. On Sunday they have a brunch which I was not aware of but from opening to about 3:00 brunch is the only option. The brunch is really great there is an omelette bar, a waffle bar, Tori-tip and ham carving station, salads, fruit, crab legs, shrimp , oysters, desserts and more. The brunch comes with choice of beverage, mimosa, Orange juice, coffee, iced tea, etc. I highly recommend the Smokehouse brunch. I just wish when I made the reservation it would have told me the only option was the brunch. I has made a 2:00 reservation and had I known it was brunch only I would have made then reservation earlier so we could have taken more time.
Porterhouse steak was average. Baked potato was good. Servers at Denny's are much better than ours. She was very cold, did not introduce herself by name, did not ask if we needed anything between the bread and the meal. Asked if we were OK once, after bringing the meal as she was walking by, and did not even make a stop to hear the answer. No smile, not asking if we had been there, or what was the occasion. Not going back.
On top of all that, the food did not sit well with both my wife and me a couple of hours after we left the restaurant.
Our experience at Smoke House in the evening on 12/28/17, was pretty good. Not stellar, but pretty good. Both myself and my dining companion had the Porterhouse steak. My colleague enjoyed his, cooked Med Well, said it was tender and full of flavor. Mine was a bit tough, requested Med, but not bad. The included baked potato was good, with condiments on the side. The sour cream container was about empty but the butter was plentiful. Chives also provided. I also had a cup of Clam Chowder. Also not too bad.
Our server, Marco, was professional but not overly friendly. He was obviously busy that night but it should not be evident to the guests quite so blatantly. Again, he was OK but nothing to write home about. The additional wait staff were efficient but also a bit too busy. The waiter providing water refills spilled on the table a couple of times as he was in such a hurry.
Surprisingly we found the value to be quite good, considering this restaurant is an icon in Burbank and does a brisk business just about every night. I had a glass of wine, only $7. Not bad even for a house wine.
I'll certainly recommend Smoke House just for the ambiance, if nothing else. I've had lunch there a few times and the service and food is consistent. Prices are reasonable - which is a pretty big selling point for a eatery in the expensive Burbank area. While you're waiting for your table be sure to check out all the various photos on the walls. Good stuff there!
Food was meh, not worth writing home about. Service was lackluster--I had to flag down the waiter twice. The booths look cool with the red seats but the regular tables with their chairs fit for a regular banquet hall looked tacky. I would not recommend this place at all.
Perhaps the Holidays are not the best time to judge a restaurant on its everyday performance, but The Smoke House can be fun -- and expensive, as are most steak houses, it seems. While the fresh salad greens were fine, the bleu cheese dressing was not, but the 11-ounce prime rib was truly good, lean and with a depth of beefy flavor. The cut was cooked just right and accompanied by whipped potatoes and fresh asparagus. The garlic bread is not to be missed and a modest slice of fairly plain cheesecake was satisfying.
This was the first time I visited . I, despite of the highly reviews, experienced a bad feeling. Everything was pretty good except the service. When I gestured to one of the waiter for the bill expecting him to react. He looked at me, walked passed and totally ignored. I had to wait and wait until later for another waiter.
Always a great night here. Our reservation time was on the spot, our server was wonderful, the food was perfect. However I must unfortunately mention a subject that is not controlled by the restaurant. The four guests next to us, two older and two younger had a conversation that was in earshot of me and my friends/family. They were surprised by the "demographic" that was there that night and said, "Oh, must be because it's Christmas." Specifically of all the Asians that were there. Me myself being Hispanic, my son's girlfriend is Filipina and the guests next to us were Asian. I felt so disgusted by these comments and just stared at the older woman who did notice me looking at her. The younger gentleman was the one who was speaking and the older woman quickly whispered in the older gentleman's ear who knows what. I am honored that the majority of the staff including the waiters and the kitchen are Hispanic and will definitely be back to liven up the demographic.
this is an icon, food excellent, service not what it used to be, forgot my birthday celebration for sis in law.....spoke to gm manny very apologenic, busy for xmas season not enough staff comped a brunch for 2 at a later date......apparently under new owners they used to own in 1970 and now own again.....................changes for the good in the process.....sunday brunch awesome champagne all u can drink
Been dining here since 1965. As a child I loved the garlic bread and the prime rib. 50 years later I still love the garlic bread and the prime rib. The Martinis and live music are wonderful. Service is attentive (a shout-out to Ireland who was our friendly server this last visit) You can count on The Smoke House to always deliver a consistently good experience.
I have been going here for over forty years and my father for 67. The services and food has continued to go down over the years but the last visit was the worst ever. The meat was all over cooked and delivered to the table cold. The asparagus was stringy and could not be chewed through and the garlic bread was dried out and tasted like saw dust. We mentioned to the staff and 20 minutes later the manager have us approximately 10% off the check. I hate to say this with the history but we will never be back.
