The Smith - East Village Ratings and Reviews

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!!!

Went on a Wednesday night and the service was awful. Food was great, I got ricotta gnocchi but bad service. The waiter was nice just expected for the price of the food that he would've paid attention to us. Will not be going back.

A nice, casual menu that reflects a lot of care and thought. Everything we've had there has been excellent. The decor is very au courant (vintage New York meets eclectic modernism), and the service has always been good. Sometimes it can be too crowded and loud, but generally it's spirited rather than deafening.

The restaurant was missing a server the day I was there with a friend and the service was terrible. I felt bad for our waiter but a lot of these problems had nothing to do with the waitstaff. It was just after 'peak' brunch and while busy, there were plenty of empty tables. Our waiter basically never came to check in on us which exacerbated all the problems. We ordered drinks and had to ask for them multiple times before they came. Food that was supposed to come with fries and avocado had neither; then the waiter offered to comp these when they were brought later. You shouldn't comp something that you were going to include anyway, comp the whole meal. We got coffee but no one brought sugar; we got biscuits and no one brought butter; we asked for to go bags and half the items didn't make it into the bag. The food was good but not amazing and I would not go back. It was also very loud and difficult to talk to my friend 2 feet away.

I've been here for brunch before, and every time it is a pleasure. Definitely take advantage of the free cocktail with your entree - the Bloody Marys are quite good. It was bustling on Sunday morning, but with our reservation we were seated no-problem. The service was good despite how busy it was, and I received plentiful coffee refills. We split the vanilla french toast and the simple scramble, and both were divine.

I was not really that impressed with the Smith putting us in a far back corner of the restaurant, despite us having reservations, where there was really bad air flow and for a party of our size, just didn't really do much for the ambiance and why we came to the smith.
If a larger party comes in early, on a reservation, on a beautiful weather night, I would hope in the future you try to seat them in a relatively closer location so they can take advantage of the summer breeze in NYC.

The Smith--always reliable, always open when I'm hungry, something for everyone, good quality food for the price, good cocktails/wine list, good service. ONLY problem--OMG, SO noisy. We sat in a booth, which helps, but still. Outside on the sidewalk on the UWS branch is the only one where you can hear yourself think and your companions speak. And I'll be back, again and again, because of its other find qualities, above.

I took my friend out for her birthday and chose The Smith primarily for its close proximity to Webster Hall (here's a plug for Gregory Alan Isakov who was doing a show there). My friend remarked the lamb appetizer was the best lamb she ever had! My starter was a very tasty salad. I had the salmon as an entre which was wonderful, and my friend had the chicken -- very large portion and delicious. The service was great, if you can, eat downstairs as the place is very loud. Overall, terrific and not overly priced.

Everyone that worked with us that day was on their A game for sure!
We asked the host when we arrived if we could wait for a table that was sitting at the open windows (it was clear they were finishing up). At first he said that it was reserved already, which we totally understood, however right after we sat down, he let us know we could move over there! That was a nice Father's Day surprise!
Food was excellent. Drinks were excellent. Everything was out in was seemed minutes and our server was polite and attentive!! We will definitely be back!
