Samantha out server was great. We sat by the door so a little cold with the door opening and closing.
I got extra shrimp on my kale and quinoa salad. It tasted great but the shrimp were super small and they only gave 5-6.

Been here several times for pre-theatre dinners. Always crowded and loud but food is consistently good and busy staff is pleasant. Convenient to Lincoln Center. Open table reservation for 6:15 but not seated until 6:30.

Delicious comfort food great on a snowy Saturday. Went for brunch and decided to go off the diet for the day! Split an order of freshly made hot potato chips with blue cheese fondue! Heaven! Then had the best eggs Benedict and fabulous buttermilk waffle with tasty apple cider syrup. Dying to go back and try more delicious items!

Went for brunch with an old friend. The food was ok. Actually a little disappointing from my last amazing experience. But service very nice and they never rushed us even though several tables turned while we were there.

We come here for the convenience of the location. Breakfast near UWS movies. Still feel they need some adult supervision. Cold, untoasted English muffin under eggs Benedict. Blasting, unpleasant 'music' in the dining area and worse, unbearable, in the ladies room. WHY? If you have separate 'runners' bringing food to the table and waiters taking orders, no food should ever arrive less than hot. Cold eggs? eh.
Very noisy. I ordered the more expensive ...
Very noisy. I ordered the more expensive hamburger. It arrived lukewarm. They graciously and speedily replaced. But, it really was only mediocre. A friend ordered the mac 'n' cheese which arrived in an attractive pan. I tasted it also, but found it very mild and not well-flavored. Good drinks, fine service and very noisy.

We went before a show at Lincoln Center and were celebrating my fiancée's birthday. We had a cocktail and a glass of wine, then the fried chicken and the tagliatelle - both delicious. The waffles with the fried chicken were made from potato! Mmmm. Then we had the sticky toffee pudding! OMG! SOOOOO GOOD! 10/10. Will go again!

This is one hopping place! We got there at 5 p.m. and were glad we came early, because within half an hour the place was jam packed with happy bar goers and diners. There was a huge waiting line when we left. The wait staff is so pleasant and cordial, the food was tasty, and the price was not typical over-the-top NY. Plenty of good vibe to be had. Enjoy!

Straightforward, painless, and friendly. Very efficient staff. Back room looks crowded, but tables were spaced well enough for a quality business discussion, without feeling overheard. Excellent neighborhood casual.

This is a go-to place for me for business breakfasts. It's a real restaurant, not a coffee shop. The eggwhite omelette is well made. They bring a complimentary bottle of seltzer as well as still water to the table.
Can't speak to other meals nd mealtimes.

Ate pre-Met Opera performance on a Saturday night. Jammed with diners so reservation was a must and as a result went to the table almost immediately. Service was attentive and fast; plenty of different takes on so-called "comfort food." Excellent cocktails. Would definitely return. Fun place to eat.

Lively atmosphere. It is very busy at lunch so it was great to have a table right there because we did reserve in advance even in the snow storm outside. The service was fantastic and the food delicious ( good choices for a brunch). Must returned soon!

The Smith is in a great location, the food is good, and this could be a fabulous restaurant. Sadly the acoustics are horrendous and the ambiance is cold and forbidding.
I was trying to have a conversation with a business associate and since the tables are crammed in together, any confidential conversation is rendered prohibitive. The acoustics are so loud with chatter, that I walked out with a horse throat after what should have been a normal quiet conversation.
The walls are tiled and I think that this ensures reverberations of voices; as well as giving the atmosphere a literally and figuratively COLD feeling.
The front room has metal tables and uncomfortable chairs which also contribute to this chilly sense of the restaurant.
I think the owner/chain cheaped-out on making the restaurant warm and comfortable with inexpensive tables, tiles, even the wine glasses were stubby.
Can't recommend this place to anyone; though it does bustle with business strictly on the back of it's location. Boo and hiss.

Decor was cool, bar looked fun. Downhill from there. I have never felt as pushed to finish a meal and get out as I did at that establishment. The waiters pushing and then the person who tried to push us right into dessert sealed the deal that I would not return.
then the food, nothing to recommend from our choices. I ordered the tasteless Crispy Cod sandwich. It was terrible, 2-tiny fish sticks smaller than Mrs. Paul's but without Mrs. Paul's taste. The topping on the Cod sandwich was tasty but only a teaspoonful.
One of my guests had the chicken sandwich, hard to not do that well but, the smith pulled it off. Third guests egg-white omelette also bland, possibly to be expected with an egg-white omelette.

Restaurant is close to Lincoln Center, so great for pre-concert dinner. Food is good, servers are both amicable & accommodating. I must say I prefer dining there in the summer when one can sit outside; indoors is incredibly noisy & it's almost impossible to carry on a conversation without screaming. The restaurant also does a great lobster salad.

I never write a review until I've been to a place at least three times, preferably spread out over several weeks. This week was my third (or maybe fifth...) to Smith's near Lincoln Center at least that many times, so a review is overdue.
It is a bustling, popular place with efficient, friendly service, a nice menu, well-prepared salads and, on my most recent visit, a tasty and filling chicken pot pie. Others in our party had fish specials, which were tasty. Portions are reasonable, on the plus side. Sparkling and still water is placed on the table; no need to ask.
The calamari appetizer was a bit rubbery, but edible.
The biggest negative, for me, is the acoustics. We were sat in the back dining room. The acoustics appear designed to deafen diners. Tiled walls, hard floors, crowded room...Three of us sitting in close proximity could barely hear one another over the din. Why do restaurants do this? Despite this, I'll be going there again.

Probably the best value in terms of quality of food and pricing during our stay in NYC. The atmosphere seemed very local, a bit casual, a bit classy. Breakfast was amazing. Avocado coast was not a small bite plate at all...it was a lot of food. The BLT+E was delicious, huge portions and accompanied by the breakfast potatoes I've ever had...they were awesome. Don't think you'll find a better spot for the $$.
