The Smith - East Village Ratings and Reviews
I love going to the Smith! The food is fantastic, the service is always on par and the menu is very creative. Jenny was at the host stand and was eager to greet us complete with a warm smile and pleasant demeanor. Hayley was our server tonight and she was fabulous! She quickly recognized my boyfriend and I were on a date and made sure to make us feel warm and welcomed. The manager Kevin was amazing! He gave us complimentary prosecco at the end of our dining experience to celebrate the occasion. I would 100% return
It was another amazing experience! The service was incredible with several waitresses attending to our every need, and they even threw in a monkey bread on the house! This place is the best; even though it may be a small chain, the outstanding service and high food quality make each location feel like one of a kind
Great place. The smith is always a winner in my book. Note - this location doesn't serve gluten free pasta but has gluten free options available . Our server was AMAZING - I believe that she trains other servers at other smith locations too. She made our night fantastic and explained the options that my boyfriend has, due to his celiac. The smith is also very careful about food allergies and takes extra precaution when preparing your food!
Ordered the scallops (Friday special) and my boyfriend got the steak - both were excellent!
My boyfriend and I came for the mac n cheese and it was very good- not as decadent and cheesy as we thought but still very satisfying. The steak was cooked perfectly and our drinks were alright, overall a mildly pleasant experience. However...the staff made this experience less pleasant than it could have been. Our hostess originally sat us in a weird table at the edge of a corner even though there is AMPLE seating and the place was only about 20% full! We instantly moved ourselves over one table. Then, 15 minutes later, this hostess sits another couple right next to us! In an almost empty restaurant with tons of seating this was just awkward and rude. The couple obviously agreed as they instantly moved themselves over one table as well. This happened AGAIN until this weird back corner was completely full. It was so bizarre, we could hear everyones conversations and barely have a dialogue. In a restaurant with so much seating, it is unacceptable to shove the only 5 couples that walk in ALL in the same back corner. We weren't the only ones who thought this... As we could CLEARLY hear everyone around us sitting inches away, many others were aggravated by this. Not sure what that hostess was thinking but she made what could of been an exceptional evening, mediocre.
Had a lovely dinner with various family members joining at alternative times. Our waitress was extremely accommodating and great about managing drinks and meals for everyone. Food was great from burgers to steaks to our personal request for well done french fries. We will be back!
This was my first time at The Smith East. The food was really good, as was the food at the one in Lincoln Center where I'd been before. Great for comfort food! I had their eggs Benedict dish with roasted tomato hollendaise sauce. It was the best egg dish I've had in a really long time.
I came to The Smith (East Village) location for brunch with my friend. I had the traditional Eggs Benedict and he had the Benedict Johnny. Both were delicious! The only downside is that our waitress forgot to order my friend's cocktail, but she apologized. Overall, I would recommend for brunch.
We were on our way to a concert and booked this last minute. This place was loud. The concrete walls and hard floors made every sounds reverberate to make it next to impossible to hold a conversation. If you want to have a nice meal without being able to talk to your fellow diner, this is the place to go.
The service was great, very fast and very attentive. The food was excellent. It's just a shame it was so damn loud.
I am torn on this restaurant. I was dining there solo before a show and sat at the bar. It was obvious the bartender was not able to handle the full bar that was in front of her. The first drink order was delivered and the whiskey pour (for the price) was below average. I ordered dinner (Prime Burger) with an empty glass in front of me and was not asked at that point if I wanted another. About five minutes later I was asked and ordered a drink off of their specialty drinks menu. I didn't see that drink for about ten minutes and that is only after I asked the second bartender who was on if he would please make it as I had been waiting (which he kindly did). The burger was excellent and I may go back for that as it really was one of the better burgers I have had, but I won't go in a rush or if I am feeling like boozing it up as there are much better places for that.
We made reservations at The Smith before seeing a show at Webster Hall. The menu was extensive...something for everyone. The waitstaff was very friendly and super respectful of our time restraints before the show. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
