The Smith- Lincoln Square Ratings and Reviews

When we got there the restaurant was packed. We were seated in a timely fashion without to much of a wait. Our waiter was friendly & very professional. At one point he told us we were ordering to much food . Gladly we took his advice , it was plenty. The food was great . The girls thought it was the best burgers they ever had. Quite the compliment seeing their mom owns a restaurant . A great experience!!!!

Have eaten at Smith for several years. Significant decline in quality of food and service. Has turned into a tourist trap- serve poor quality food with expectation that a tourist will not return. Royale Burger was nothing more than an over-priced frozen White Castle patty. I live in Lincoln Square area and will NOT return.

Interesting menu and pretty good food, but very crowded and noisy for a Sunday lunch! If that works for you - go for it! Otherwise, find a more comfortable restaurant that does not feel like a walk through Times Square!!!

Our go to place for dinner when we are going to Lincoln Center. Excellent variety and we have never been disappointed in our selections. Attentive staff. Love the filtered sparkling water on the table at no additional cost. Save room for dessert!

The food i'm sure would be better enjoyed if we could hear ourselves. The acoustics are terrible. Our table was screaming at each-other just to have a conversation. We had to wave down our server to make sure we had drinks. I'm sure the food was good, I just dont remember it because the ambiance was like a subway station and we were frustrated trying to have a dinner conversation.

We went to The Smith for Thanksgiving, it was overall a good experience. Food was good, service was good. Only thing to put a finger on was the speed of thing... wow it really went fast with delivering the dishes, and a tad to fast with bringing the bill.

Although it was thanksgiving with a set menu it was not what I expected!! I'm sure on any other evening it would be superb. Let's just say this southern texas girl like her Cajun seasoning and it's no where to be found in NYC! Wait staff was excellent! Very loud! Food was average for thanksgiving!

I was really excited for Thanksgiving at The Smith this year. My partner and I went last year and both the food and service was amazing, so we decided to make it an annual tradition. Unfortunately, the second time around was a dud. The food we received was either cold or extremely burnt, and our service was inconsistent, rushed, and unfriendly. We understand the chaos that comes with the holiday rush, but we didn't expect such a disappointing experience, especially after last year's fantastic dinner. I'm afraid we'll have to find a new place for next Thanksgiving.

We booked to have our Thanksgiving meal here before we came over to the USA. The ambiance and staff were extremely friendly and the food delicious. We were however slightly disappointed as we were under the impression that we were able to order from the normal menu as well as the thanksgiving set menu, as the 4 set menus worked out more expensive than we had hoped.

We were visiting the city for thanksgiving and decided to book a table. We were shown to our table promptly even though we were early. Waiter service was really good and quick and the food was superb. A thumbs up all round from myself and my daughter, the only problem was that we couldn't finish our plates (except desert of course!)

While the food here is always delicious, during a late-night visit (at 11 pm) the restaurant felt like a refrigerator. We changed tables once, thinking it was because we were near the front door, but with the exception of the restrooms downstairs, the entire restaurant was uncomfortably cold - many people sat with their coats on. The noise level, as always, was very high, even though the restaurant was not full - what it lacked in people shouting was more than made up for by the loud background music. Although this is one of the better restaurants in the Lincoln Center area as far as food preparation, and a fun place to eat, we will go back to our earlier vow to only eat here in the summer, when we can sit outside on the "quiet" street rather than inside, and where it's sure to be a little warmer than it was inside this week!

I would never recommend this restaurant and will never go back. Noise level was off the charts; couldn't have a conversation. food was only mediocre as was the service. There are just too many tables..quite the scene. I would readily pay more for more space and quiet. Awful experience and it wasn't my first....I just happened to forget about the noise.

I made a reservation but it was mass chaos. The team tried its best but there was sheerly too many people to adequately service; I had to wait 25 minutes longer before I was seated. It kinda messed up the mood. There was just too much going on. The food was good but unfortunately I won't be back. I know it doesn't matter due to the vibration scene outside.

We enjoy coming to the Smith because it's close to home and consistently good. There are usually few changes to the brunch menu but I was thrilled to see they changed the waffles to an apple compote with a spiced mascarpone topping, truly an amazing fall change!! Waffles are always light and fluffy and this was perfect for today!

Great menu with lots of variety and options. Food quality was excellent and service was also excellent. Very convenient to Lincoln Center. Very busy restaurant and a bit on the loud side, but that's NY. Outdoor seating is available in warmer weather, which I would recommend if you want to get away from the noise. The Smith is a new favorite of mine and I look forward to going back again soon.

High energy restaurant..... Food was good but you couldn't have a conversation without screaming at each other a very noisy restaurant. Thought the wine list was very expensive. Had a carafe of there house wine and it was $87.00.

It's pricy and rather noisy, but my friend and I still had a nice time thanks to the attentive staff and excellent food. Portions were generous, and the combinations of ingredients were interesting. I would definitely list this as a special occasion place, but it would be high on that list!

Even though we had a reservation, we still waited fifteen minutes to be seated. The waiter was pleasant enough, but our food was cold when we received it. The restaurant was so noosy, my friend and I couldn't hear ourselves think, much less talk. The food quality was okay, somewhat high-priced for,lunch.
