Great atmosphere with simple yet very clever flavours. The staff were excellent and the bartenders were skilled cocktail makers 😛I would definitely recommend The Smith to anyone wanting a genuine New York dining experience as enjoyed by real New Yorkers rather than the tourist trap restaurants.

The Smith was amazing!! The food was incredibly rich in flavor- we all loved the mac & cheese ordered as an appitizer for the table- and brunch food- the drinks were great too- had reservations for brunch on sunday and got seated right away. Great service- cant wait to go back and try the rest of the menu!

The Smith East Village is as advertised. Good food, energetic crowd, lots of activity. Tables are a little close, but it is not intended to be a quiet lounge. On balance, a reliable choice for a better meal, but make reservations well in advance - prime times fill up.

We went to The Smith before going to see a show, it was simply delicious and our Waitress Kirsten was great, clearly explaining additional options to the already full menu.
Had a lovely meal and would defo recommend.

I met an old college friend for lunch here during the week and the ambiance was quiet and peaceful. Our waitress was bubbly and attentive. My friend ordered the mac and cheese and I ordered the kale & quinoa salad and tuna poke. Everything was delicious. I would definitely love to come back for brunch and/or dinner and witness the livelier hours of the restaurant.

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.

Came with a group of friends. This is a great place to go to if you are in a pinch and can't get a reservation in NYC if you tend to plan last minute like me. The food and drinks are good and it is not terribly expensive. Definitely recommended.

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.

LOUD. Food was good, but anything that we ate was completely obscured by having to shout at one another across the table. I appreciated their desire to try to make gluten-free brunch--though they still only had a couple of options. It is also essential to make a reservation in order to avoid a wait--easy enough with Open Table.

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.
