The Smith- Lincoln Square Ratings and Reviews
We ate a selection of appetizers for dinner. The bread was much improved. The service was excellent. I have two big complaints. 1. The chairs are very uncomfortable 2. The restaurant is way too noisy! I like the energy but it would be nice to be able to have a normal conversation. It's so noisy that the people around you need to shout to be heard.
This is a great looking restaurant (to me) with terrific ambiance. The service was quite good. We had reservations so were seated quickly. And when we explained that we had tickets to a show the waiter took our orders right away. Rather that risk having drinks and falling asleep at the show all four of us had sodas and they were great. Homemade cucumber-ginger ale is something everyone should have. It had a nice fresh ginger burn!
My wife had grilled cod and thought it was OK. Her daughter had the pork chop which was phenomenal ! I had the special of the day - fish and chips - not so great. Way too greasy.
Overall the place was pretty good. I wish I had ordered something else.
The Smith is a truly exceptional restaurant! The absolute best place to come for weekend brunch with friends! Everything from the wide array of menu options for both food and drinks, I am never disappointed. The ambiance is also exceptional, I would give The Smith-Lincoln Square five stars and will come back again and again!
We chose The Smith because it is across the street from Lincoln Center, where we had tickets. It was fine for Sunday brunch, and the four of us had variations on eggs -- Benedict, with spicy grits, baked with meats, and I forget what the fourth had. What we ate was very tasty. With coffee all around and one prosecco, the bill came to about $25-30 a head with tip. A nice touch is they include sparkling water at no additional charge. The atmosphere is very loud and busy, with a fair number of kids, as you might expect on a Sunday afternoon. If I go again, I will ask for the back room, which looked quieter. Placement of the restrooms down a flight of stairs is a negative for the physically impaired. Reservations are a must; those who didn't have them faced an hour's wait or more.
We very much enjoyed our brunch at the Smith. The avocado toast with poached eggs was excellent, and the serving size was very generous. In fact it was very shareable. The service was excellent. Reservations are highly recommended. The major downside was that it was very, very noisy.
I always love coming to the Smith when I go to Lincoln Center. I love to people watch and I really like the food. I especially love the kale and quinoa salad. I always get the pasta and my family loves the steak. I highly recommend it for a fun, lively place.
Very courteous and attentive staff. The Tuna Poke bowl was fabulous. Good wine list and expansive, inspiring menu. Lobster roll was good but not remarkable. Everyone seemed to be very happy, although it was waaaaaaaaaaaaay too loud, we could barely hear each other at a small table for two. Need some acoustic solutions to absorb all the noise bouncing off all those surfaces.
Went there yesterday for brunch. To be honest it wasn't our first choice but Norma's was full and we couldn't get in.... and I sure am glad it was!! The Smith was a great experience in every which way. Great food in a great setting. Service was attentive but not pushy, Made a couple of great food suggestions which were a hit with table. His follow thru and follow up was spit on. Chris is an asset to your restaurant. Food note... no matter what, order the grits, you will glad you did!
I always love the smith! And this is the one place where they changed the menu and I have no complaints. I loved the addition of the shrimp entree and fried green tomatoes. I tried the strawberry shortcake which didn't do much for me, but the s'mores in a jar is still as amazing as ever.
Interior was deafening so we migrated outside onto pavement on an extremely hot evening. Tiled floor and wall construction would make dining inside impossible. Food was good. Wine on offer was by glass, small carafe or large carafe (5 glasses). The large carafe was equivalent to a bottle so for bulk wine the prices were high.
