The Smith - East Village Ratings and Reviews
food is amazing and service was great - wouldnt recommend for any serious meeting - the restaurant is very popular and usually packed making it louder than a usual lunch spot. Brunch deals are great - first drink is free when you order off of the brunch menu !
This location is always a go to. I've never gone with a large group. And the service was impeccable. We did not wait more then maybe 2 minutes for a lovely table.
From the hostess to our server Doug everyone was helpful and kind.
The food doesn't need much words. Everything was delicious. The group talked about dinner for the rest of the weekend.
I love this smith so much that we had our engagement party at Porta Asbury. Not only is this location great all of them are.
We came here for brunch when we're in town, to catch up with friends we hadn't seen in a while. The atmosphere is nice, but it was a little too noisy - sometimes it's hard to hear what our friends were saying. Service was good, although I felt rushed to order. But they were attentive and kept refilling my coffee. Food was not too impressive. I ordered steak and eggs, medium rare. The steak was cold when it arrived, so was the hash brown. It felt like it had been sitting out before being brought to the table. I tasted my husband's French toast and it was good. He also enjoyed the cocktail he had. All in all, it was a good time, and the location can't be beat. But I would probably pick a different restaurant the next time we're in East Village.
We headed to The Smith just before heading out of town after spending our Saturday on Broadway and culinary experiences for lunch and dinner. My meal at The Smith was just about as enjoyable as those on Saturday! I had the Sicilian Baked Eggs and my wife had the BLT+E Sandwich. The Bloody Mary was really good, too! Service was just as good as the food. I'd definitely recommend.
Very loud and noisy but in a fun way. Definitely need a reservation for brunch, the place was packed. A little hard to navigate to your seat as the tables are quite close together. Food and service was excellent. Great coffee. Accommodated a friend's gluten free needs very graciously.
The Smith has pared its menu nicely and adjusted prices accordingly. The service is attentive and friendly--good team coverage at noon. The Pot of Mussels arrive in a large pot with lots of fresh, tastey broth and served with ample, hot shoestring fries. Very attractive dessert selection, but way too sweet for this diner.
The neighborhood has become competitive, but, The Smith has withstood the tests of time and clientele and remains outstanding for lunch, brunch and late dining
Always a pleasure and tonight even moreso! Our amazing server gave the seven of us incredible service including the anniversary dessert for our friends and a replacement bibimbop for my leftovers since mine was accidentally thrown out. Thank you again. The Smith is our favourite restaurant for a reason. Thanks again!
I'm not one to make a fuss at restaurants, I'm a young 20-something it's not my place, but having worked in restaurants I have a few things I just don't find very courteous. It is a pet peeve of mine when restaurants have your table ready but refuse to seat you until your whole party has arrived. I made a reservation, I expect to have something put aside for me. When we were seated a half hour after our reservation, we were taken to a literally empty downstairs dining room. I could have sat this whole time. While we did wait we waited at the bar, and the bartenders never once asked if we were interested in a drink while we waited. Our service was poor as well; drinks were mixed up, I felt rushed, and our entrees came out with no replacement forks from the ones we used for our appetizer. So we sat with food until someone noticed me with a hand up. Overall bad experience and wouldn't recommend
I have been wanting to go to the smith for years. I finally gave in and booked a reservation. It was such a let down. I wanted to like it so badly, but it just wasn't good. It started off with a bus boy throwing a bag of one piece of bread on the table. The bread was hard as a rock. And one piece for two people? We skipped it. The presentation of it was also just cheap. The water given to the table was warm. After ordering the menus were never taken from us. The mac n cheese was extremely overrated. It was the reason we went there since I travel the world in search of great mac. It left an aftertaste and I definitely didn't feel inclined to finish it. The butternut squash rings were the only redeeming element. They were surprisingly good though a bit on the done side. The pretzels came out burnt so they were sent back. The new batch was lighter, but also very hard. The restaurant was packed and it felt like everyone was sitting on top of each other. Sadly, we won't be coming back. It just didn't live up to the hype.
I went to The Smith (East Village) for the second time on 1/15/17. I ordered the BLT+E sandwich, which is a croissant with tomato, bacon, fried egg, and lettuce. The tomato was moldy and I showed the waiter and he didn't care. I didn't ask for my money back. All I wanted for was this to be communicated to the kitchen staff. I am pregnant and am very sensitive to bacteria. I will never go here again and recommend anyone who wants to be sure they are eating fresh and clean food to not come here either. Also, we paid FULL price. There was no apology or anything. For an $18 sandwich, I deserved a fresh tomato and not the worry that I may have eaten contaminated food that could harm my unborn baby.
The restaurant was extremely loud, dark, and crowded. We were seated at a terrible cafe table near the door. The menu was pretty bland. All of the food needed some flavor, very average taste. Wine was insanely overpriced ($15 for a 'cup' - not even served in a glass) and the moscow mule was TERRIBLE and still cost $13. Didn't bother with dessert. We had the meatballs, which tasted frozen. Calamari, which was so drab I didn't want to eat it, and the mac and cheese which was pretty uninspired. The tuna poke was delicious though! Very good flavor, nice touch adding the nuts to the dish. Overall, I would only go back to this place for brunch/lunch. Definitely not worth it for dinner.
We went to The Smith prior to attending a show at Joe's Pub. We made reservations and were seated right away. The Smith has a wide selection of cocktails and great atmosphere. I'm a vegetarian so I ordered the vegetarian bibimbap. It was delicious. My sister ordered the fish.
We couldn't resist the dessert. Let's just say the sticky toffee pudding is amazing. On a previous visit I had the ice cream sundae and that was very good too.
It can get a little loud but I live the vibe. The wait staff is attentive. They serve their own purified seltzer and water in two bottles at the table which I appreciated.
I wish there were more vegetarian options but the bibimbap was really good so I'd order it again.
The drinks are tasty and have a good kick to them.
We were seated in the basement, which had a cozy feel. The menu was pretty diverse. I had the brick flattened chicken and my wife had the beef short rib. Both were very good, but not 5 star quality. Ambience was nice. They did a great job decorating around the unique quality of the building.
