The Smith - East Village Ratings and Reviews
Busy as always, we waited 15 minutes to be seated with a reservation. The menu has changed. I had crispy trout sandwich which was delicious with a glass of Pinot Noir. My husband had the short rib hash with eggs which he liked & a Bloody Mary which was quite spicy. The noise level is high- if you want to have a conversation, you are in the wrong place.
Great food but be prepared to wait despite having a reservation. I am pregnant and standing around was annoying because I kept getting bumped into and couldn't obviously have a drink at the bar to make the wait more enjoyable. Otherwise, everything else was a great experience!
Ate there for lunch with our three kids. Felt very trendy, and food had a unique twist on the favorites. Although there was no kids menu, they were very accommodating and prepared meals that my picky kids enjoyed! Food was amazing! Service a tad slow because so busy.
The food was ok, but the restaurant was very loud. We were seated next to a table of drunk businessmen who got louder and louder. They were yelling, cursing, and howling during our entire meal. Management did nothing to quiet them. Our group consisted of a lady and her teenage daughter and son, clearly not party people. My cocktail tasted great, but it was served in a glass so small and filled with ice that it seemed to consist of about an ounce of liquid. The bar area was hopping and looked like a fun area for twenty-somethings.
My second sojourn here for Sunday brunch; my gym is down the block. Excellent service that shows; food is good, and although not applicable to me, you could have had a nice alcoholic drink with your brunch for no cost! Really appreciate the non-gender assigned bathrooms downstairs!
We received outstanding service and delicious food all around. We were even provided complimentary after-dinner drinks for having a slightly awkwardly positioned table. It was lively and active without being over-the-top crowded or noisy. An excellent dining experience.
Neighbors and diners change and so does The Smith ... this is a great renaissance experience
The steamed mussels with hot shoestring potatoes cannot be beaten. Delicious, well seasoned broth and very fresh mussels (request the bread service baguette) for a broth-dipping option
Attentive, professional service at every level--every staff is heads up
Deserts are sweet but top quality and well presented
Avoid espresso-awful awful
We enjoyed this place a lot. The golden eye cocktail was mysterious and delicious. The tomato soup melt was sparkley and the spicy chicken meatballs were tasty. My main was skirt steak, and my server let me have both the chimichuri and the garlic butter sauces, so I was in heaven. DH had the daily special lamb shank, which was a little disappointing and he was seriously eyeing my steak. I gave him some because he is a good man and also I had plenty. We had a nice carafe of red (the bordeaux blend was enjoyable.) Finished off with the sticky pudding and some sorbet, both great. Our server was a gem. We went early to make a play at the Public, and although it was energetic we didn't have to go to our noisy restaurant mode of sitting next to each other so we could converse. I already recommended this to some people.
If you're looking for a fun, full of energy place for Sunday Brunch "The Smith" is definitely where it's at. The catchy named cocktails were so very good (my husband loved "The Gatsby") and the wine list was reasonably priced with a good selection of reds and whites. The bartenders really know how to whip up some unique and great tasting cocktails. They're very friendly and don't mind telling you what's in the delicious concoction you're enjoying.
The Manager, Antonio Addeo recognized that we were new to his establishment and went out of his way to make us feel welcomed. As a matter of fact, he was attentive to everyone and made sure his guests were pleased with their meals. I am always impressed when a manager is so hands on. Our server, Kelly was also attentive and extremely pleasant.
I had the Burger Royale which was delicious. It was so generously sized that I couldn't eat the entire thing. My husband had the Benedict Johnny - a bit of a different take on Eggs Benedict. He loved it!
Be sure to make a reservation. It was quite crowded but we were seated within minutes of our reservation time.
We will definitely be returning.
