The Smith - East Village Ratings and Reviews

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.
Between the weekend brunch menu (ends at ...
Between the weekend brunch menu (ends at 4), the abbreviated after-brunch menu (4-5pm), and the dinner menu (5pm), a very different set of options unspools as the day goes on. Just don't miss the hot fudge sundae.

Visiting New York and wanted somewhere close to our apartment on our last night. The starters here were all way to spicy but the mains were delicious and good value for price. The venue has nice decor but the noise level was off the chart and on a Monday, ha ha. Not somewhere for a quiet meal or a first date, you wouldnt hear each other.
Id recommend though, the cod supper was very good!

Overall brunch at The Smith was a good experience. The only cons were that the tables were a bit too close together so it made it difficult to get up and that my food arrives warm and not hot. I did like what I ordered and I would still return, but I definitely see room for improvement. Reservations are a must.

We popped in here for brunch, after making a reso on OT. We were glad to be seated in the downstairs dining room, because upstairs was insanely loud. The food, though, was tasty, the service was quick and we enjoyed ourselves!

If you need a good place for a meal, it's practically guaranteed that The Smith will deliver. I've been there many times and the food and service is always on point. One complaint I have is that I find it a little too loud, but when you have a restaurant that is this popular, I guess it's to be expected. I could eat there several times a week - it's that good! I highly recommend.

My husband took me here for brunch for my birthday. We brought along our 6 month old daughter. The food was outstanding, the waitress was super nice. We did not have to wait with our reservation. I loved it, cannot wait to go back.

Saturday brunch with the girls. Hostess sat us in a nice table in the corner so we could chat. Waitress was informative and helpful, gave us recommendations on most popular food and drink. We all enjoyed our meals and generally had a great time.

Great food, great service and very energetic. I love The Smith. I've never had a bad meal there. It's not where you want to go for a quiet evening but it's a fun date place. The bar snacks and starters are amazing - great for sharing. Can't wait to go back!
