The Smith - East Village Ratings and Reviews

Food and service was very worth every penny. Dishes we ordered for 5 people were all delicious. I had the shrimp with a black rice and and it was by far the best meal i had in my 6 week vacation. If i was a local i would definitely dine there regularly.

I don't understand how this place has so many positive reviews. The food is some of the worst that I've had since moving to New York a year ago. I guess if you're not venturing far from typical barfood like a burger or macaroni and cheese, then it wouldn't be so bad. I went with three other people and we all ordered various things (bibimbop, truffle gnocchi, brick pressed chicken, ny strip) all were terrible with the exception of the french fries that came with the steak.
Drinks are NASTY. We sent two back (cool cat, manhattan). Don't waste your time or money.

We had a great time with friends at The Smith! The food was delicious and the atmosphere while professional makes you feel at home. Our server was enjoyable, accommodating, and very pleasant. It is a bit noisy, but was great for friends getting together over dinner.

Food is pretty good. One expects good food in NYC. There are thousands of good food restaurants in New York. The BIG problem at this restaurant is the service. Dizzy, scattered, a tad surly and uncaring. Our wait person oozed annoyance from the moment we sat down.
They should be able to do a lot better better or I suggest going elsewhere, get good food and be treated like an appreciated guest.

This was my second time visiting The Smith. The first was for brunch which was not disappointing (see my review on the 15th of August 2016). This time at 10:45am for breakfast which was not disappointing at all. Breakfast consisted of vanilla bean french toast, apple smoked bacon, egg white omelette with kale, cheddar biscuits(free) waffle potato and steak, one hot chocolate and two pineapple juices. Everything was absolutely delicious. The server, Scott J was phenomenal. Bathrooms were clean. They even have a photo booth if you want to take pictures, a couple of dollars though. The cost of the meals a bit pricey, but worth it. I can highly recommend The Smith and I will be back.

This was my first time going to the smith and it won't be my last. I came during the week in the morning so it wasn't crowded. The food was excellent! Egg white omelette with french fries and steak salad were delicious. For dessert the hot fudge sundae, absolutely sweet and delicious! My server, Bradley was awesome!. My only criticism is I came for breakfast around 11:21am. They said they stop serving breakfast at 11:30am which is not advertised on their website. I would suggest they give the times they serve certain meals on their website and extend the breakfast time longer. Overall, it was a great experience and I'll be back, especially for breakfast.

I must say the tomato soup was absolutely delicious! Other dishes were okay.
But mostly I have to say that the service was great! I wish I knew the name of the waitress we had. Im not sure if all the help is as friendly and helpful and fun as she was!
It was evening. I'd go back and try the brunch for sure!

I made a 9pm reservation, called to push it back. The hostess was wonderful and accommodating. When we ended up not running late after all, the hostesses helped get us seated as quickly as possible. They gave me a perfect time estimate. Then, when we sat and reviewed the menu, the one item my sister wanted was 86'ed. But when our food came out, the kitchen had one last order of the tacos, and the kitchen sent them out with their complements. Amazing surprise! Thank you for making our dining experience a wonderful one!

The food and staff was awesome. We got there and only had to wait a minute or two before being seated. We were downstairs in between two tables so it was a very tight fit and it was noisy but we forgot about the noise after awhile. The food was excellent. It's a bit pricey but if you have the money and want to hang out with some friends or have a casual date, this is a great place.

Excellent dinner. Excellent service. Beautiful space. I like the inclusive service charge which, at The Smith, was worth every penny. The restaurant is very well managed and staff very well trained to provide the right amount of great service without being overbearing. Perfect evening.

Disappointing breakfast/brunch. Place was quite empty. Waitress was not super interested. Menu choices were basic with no innovated dish except perhaps the avocado toast. First round of coffee was luke warm. Eggs benedict were average. Avocado toast also was underwhelming. The experience overall was not one that I would come back for.

I made a reservation for my dad's birthday and I am glad I did because this is the type of place that you need a reservation.
We ended up running 20 minutes late (traffic from CT) and we had to wait about 10 minutes for our table (definitely understandable). The manager apologized and delivered their newest app to our table: those Chocolate Bombs - which are GREAT by the way!
The staff was very friendly and delightful. The food was all fantastic and came out of the kitchen quickly.
The place was very loud, but that's because it was full of other people - the sign of a successful place.
I would definitely come back to The Smith again.

Food was yummy, service was great! We had a table in the back, which was nice and quiet before a party of 10 sat down. I brought family visiting from out of town, and once we could no longer hear each other, we knew the setup wasn't going to work. We asked to be moved and they accommodated us immediately. We ended up closer to outside with a lovely breeze and NYC vibes for my out of town guests. They loved it!

Every part of this meal was spectacular. We started with the calamari, cheesy chips, and donuts. Everything was top notch quality (especially the chips). Then I had the lobster roll which was so much lobster. Such a great problem to have. Topped if off with the smores mason jar and berry pie dessert. Not only was it the best tasting brunch iv been to thus far in NYC, but also the best environment with friendly and enthusiastic service and clientele. I highly recommend going (make a reservation), and will def be back!!!
