The Smith- Lincoln Square Ratings and Reviews
We walked in, gave our names and were seated immediately. We were greeted shortly after by our waitress Danielle. She checked in with us frequently. The food was absolutely amazing! Try the monkey bread! The orange juice tastes like if it was picked from a florida orange tree that was planted in heaven and squeezed in hell (that's a good thing). Best orange juice in the multiuniverses. :)
My husband and I made a reservation at The Smith before an event at Lincoln Center. Although it was packed, we were shown immediately to our table. The service was very good. Our waiter was attentive and not over bearing. My husband had a chicken dish which he thoroughly enjoyed and I had a delicious steak salad.
Tables are very close together so there is no privacy. It is also very loud. We had read earlier reviews so this didn't surprise or disappoint us.
I'm from out of town, and I had eaten here for lunch before with some friends, so I decided to try dinner. Made a reservation, and the staff called me the night before to confirm which was awesome. Dinner did not disappoint, and the service was pretty good. I would definitely go back.
A fun, lively atmosphere with good bistro style food. I had the cod which was very good and my friend had the daily special which was fried chicken. It was delicious and it came with a potato waffle but it would have been nice to also come with a healthier vegetable side as well. I've been here for lunch and brunch as well and the food is consistently yummy.
Jameelah is everything you'd want in a server. Charismatic and friendly, her smile was genuine and she truly seemed to be having fun. The food was good but the portion sizes were very large - which some people may like - but I like to clean my plate and this was almost a challenge for me. I really liked how quickly we had menus in our hands and water not even twenty seconds after sitting down. Things moved quickly and efficiently. I like the energy in the dining room. Very chaotic, yet very organized. One small complaint: the lights were too bright. The space reminds me of a train station with the long wooden booths curving along portions of the dining room. Communal sinks in the bathroom and classic subway tiles are a nice touch. The Photo Booth is playful and fun. I saw a guy acting creepy looking through a peep hole in the bathroom wall. I was curious (and a little creepy too I suppose), but I discovered a vintage burlesque film playing. Interesting.
We've been to the Smith at a few of their different locations and the experience is consistently pleasant. My only issue this occasion was for my first time trying their fish and chips, which to note is a special on Tuesdays only. The meal was a bit too salty and not what you would consider 'traditional' style. Otherwise, great meal all-around. Will return.
We went to the Met, so we ate first. The server was professional ,alert and very kind. The food was the correct helping size and very good. I had the cod...Fish and vegetables, no carbs which I appreciated. My wife had the seared tuna salad...This was excellent, nice big pieces of tuna and a great assortment of vegetables, potato salad, develed egg and very nice tasting dressing.
Food is always consistent and good...sad to see that lobster salad is no longer on the menu. Our server was on top of things, wine brought with meal and not before as per request. We didn't feel rushed even though place was packed. Will definitely go back again.
Our waiter was really great. Very nice and observant. The table was in the middle of an aisle, and we were really cramped. We went for brunch and the place was very busy. People kept walking by and bumping my chair. The table shouldn't have been there. I made a reservation in advance and was disappointed with the table we were given.
Super loud. Tables tight and hard to have a conversation. Menu looked promising but food did not live up to expectation. Eggs were greasy and salmon toast was good but nothing special. Does well because of location (across Lincoln Center) and limited reasonable dining in area. Otherwise see no reason to go. Sure better experience if go in large group.
This is one of our absolute favorites to go for breakfast on the weekend. We love having this place in our neighborhood. Delicious food, fun environment, and amazing service make this a place we always return to. They also take food allergies seriously and have made it easy to know you are safely eating gluten free options. Some of the best servers in the city!
Overall, the Smith was very good. I ordered the french toast and my mom ordered steak and eggs. The steak and eggs included a potato waffle that was probably the best part of our meal. People around us ordered their avocado toast which looked VERY good, I plan on trying it next time. I also look forward to trying their fries which looked AMAZING.
The Smith is ALWAYS on point! Service was great, our meal was delicious...the mussels are incredible and the side of skinny fries to dip in the sauce was a perfect touch!! Went before going to the Opera and it was the perfect start to our night!!! Thanks for a great time, we'll always come back here!
The food at The Smith is consistently very good. If only The Smith could solve the problem of being really noisy, especially during lunch. Even my students (who are in their 20's) have pointed out that it's difficult to have a conversation due to the noise level.
I went to dinner at the Smith on 2 different occasions: once with my girlfriends for a bday dinner and once with my family. The 2 locations were very similar, except the location at Lincoln Square was much bigger in size.
The first time I ordered the mussels and fries. The mussels come in a huge pot and the side of fries is gigantic - definitely can split between 2 people. We also ordered with chips with blue cheese fondue which was very good even though I'm not a huge cheese person.
The second time I ordered the brick chicken and Atlantic cod to share. They were both just okay - I wish I had gotten the mussels again. They were also a little overpriced for the quality of the food. They just lacked flavor- wasn't impressed. The green beans and ranch appetizer was great though. I prefer those over the chips + fondue. Got a glass of Malbec but it was in a normal water glass, not a wine glass.
It's good for groups and it's more on the casual side which is nice. Don't come here if you're looking for a quiet dinner though- it's usually very busy and loud at night (i've never been for lunch).
Calamari was ordinary. Should have been thinner sliced and crisper. Sauce had good spice level. My chopped salad was a little too chopped, but tasty. The chicken pot pie was not good. My husband picked out the chicken and some carrots and left the crusts. Not so good.
