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!

Great food and atmosphere for brunch. Even though they couldn't serve alcohol before noon, our waiter brought us our cocktails promptly at noon!
The Smith Friday night
My boyfriend and I came before a show at Irving Plaza. We had two drinks across the street and then proceeded over to the Smith where I had a resi for 6pm. We were seated immediately which was great. The Smith is an energetic, canteen like environment which was fine for the vibe we were going for that night - we wanted a casual meal before heading up the street to the show. The oysters were OK. Not great, but not bad. Not sure they were worth the 4$ an oyster we paid, but the brussel sprouts were amazing and made up for it. My Moscow Mule wasn't anything spectacular but it did the job. Dinner for me was grilled shrimp which was basic if not for the jalepeno mashed potatoes and lobster brandy which made the dish. Boyfriend had the branzinno which was again, OK, but not worth the $26. Overall, once you hit the $150 for a dinner for two we feel like we should have gone for a better, more private and quiet dining experience, but it was good and we left satisfied.
Great Service in a lively atmosphere!
We were there before a show at Webster Hall and were treated by a very efficient staff. A wide variety of food in a lively atmosphere. Even returned after the show for a late-night dessert (sub-par) and coffee.

Horrible horrible dinner. I ordered the Branzino and it was barely a 2 oz fillet grilled to cardboard consistency over a mish mosh of unidentifiable vegetables. This food wasn't fit for a hospital tray. And, our cocktails weren't even made correctly. There are far better dining choices.
It Never Gets Old
I've lost track of how many times of come here. It's hard to right anything new at this point: great food, nice service, scenic layout, lively atmosphere -- it's hard to ask for more given what you're paying.
Great spot for brunch!
Wanted to sit by the front and our server relocated us when a spot opened up. Perfect!

Great egg white omelet! Hard to find things that are wrong with The Smith because it is always good but I wish there were more vegetarian choices.

The best brunch I have tried in East Village! Quick service and even better food. Although I would definitely recommend that you make a reservation on the weekend as the place fills up very fast. The complimentary fresh squeezed juice that came with our meal was a nice addition. I would recommend the Smoked Salmon Benedict and the Breakfast Pot Pie!
Roomy. Full bar, full menu, excellent food.
Surprised at excellent quality of this restaurant in highly trafficked area. It's getting harder to find restaurants with a full bar, and we wanted to try something new in the neighborhood. Loved the big size. Although crowded there were lots of tables, no need to reserve even on a Saturday night. Very friendly service. Strong, tasty drinks. My husband who is extra picky loved his porkchops. I had the best swordfish I can remember ever having. Returned next night. Enjoyed diner-style table. Yummy hot chips & calamari. My lobster salad not as good as the swordfish but good and filling. Steak not as good as porkchop but that's OK--we'll stick with what we love!

Just too loud. We couldn't take it -- we were yelling, the neighboring table was yelling. It was so uncomfortable and unpleasant that we left before we even ordered dinner.

Went for Sunday brunch. The food was very good. Must try the home made potato chips with blue cheese fondue, indulge with a house made Bloody Mary, you will not be disappointed. Save room for dessert and order the Sticky Toffee Pudding, ridiculousness...

I can't stop thinking about it omg the chimichurri AMAZING and the French fries were sooo good! I also order the mac & cheese it was TO DIE FOR! Definitely coming back!

The place was packed since it was mother's day but we were seated right away. We got the menus and water quickly, but our server took at least 20 minutes before he came to take our order. A minus for the restaurant. After we ordered, the food arrived in a timely manner. I had the avocado toast which was tasty but the toast itself was slightly soggy therefore difficult to cut. I think the restaurant can upgrade their coffee beans. It is not up to par. Otherwise we had a marvelous afternoon at The Smith.

This is a go to place and without fail you will enjoy the food and friendly, unrushed and accommodating service. Nothing inexpensive but nothing disappointing either. You most certainly get what you pay for.
Mother's Day Brunch
Reserved a table for Mother's Day brunch without ever having visited and was so pleasantly surprised. Atmosphere was adorable yet sophisticated, menu was huge, and every single thing my party of 6 ordered was so incredible that we all just shared everything. We will definitely be coming back

Food and service was very good. Starter doughnuts were not great but everything else was really good. Prices were as you would expect for NYC. Would definitely go back.
A Solid Dining Option
Our party of five enjoyed our recent dinner at The Smith - East Village while visiting New York. We now know why we were able to reserve a table at The Smith when finding a table at other East Village restaurants was a challenge: the get ''em in, get 'em out approach. Despite a very fast-paced meal, the food, as reviews on Open Table and other sources indicate, was well-executed and, well, good. All of us enjoyed our meals and walked away with a sense that we wouldn't have gone wrong with anything on the menu.
Tasty, satisfying brunch
The avocado toast and home fries were divine. I was very pleased with my brunch, as well as the décor of the restaurant - it was modern and trendy, and looked like it could have been designed by Joanna Gaines of Fixer Upper. Noise levels were quite high, so this might be a difficult place to meet up with a large group.
MUST, MUST, MUST!
This place is awesome! We were given the best seat in the house, (lower level, corner) a table for two. We ordered a large carafe of wine, the Friday Night Special ,(back by popular demand) the lobster roll, the pork chop, the bone in rib eye, the jalapeno cheddar grits (OH MY!) , the charred asparagus and the smashed garlic potatoes. EVERYTHING was perfectly seasoned and cooked to perfection. Recommendation: REPEAT! REPEAT! REPEAT!

Staff was excellent. Very warm & attentive which I do not expect in NYC. The food was good, not exceptional but good. Nothing to complain about but nothing I can't wait to go back for. The location was great & ambiance was vibrant. Love the decor too. Overall a great experience!
Everything was great, from being seating to our meal. Food was great, server was kind.
We like the restaurant for a local after-theater dinner. At 5:30 pm, the noise level is low enough to be able to hear everyone clearly. The food is very good, but certain items are not nearly hot enough and it may be due to less than optimal management of the food delivery. For example, the fried calamari appetizer wasn't hot enough. The broiled pork chopped was perfectly cooked medium rare, hot when delivered, but served on luke-warm mashed potatoes. They need to get all the aspects right. Enjoyed the roasted brussel sprouts side order, prepared with capers, currants and garlic with a vinaigrette.
