The Smith- Lincoln Square Ratings and Reviews
Went with my wife for a wedding anniversary dinner. Food and drinks were very good. Service was good. We sat outside and the only thing we didn`t like was that tables were way to close to each other. There is no way to have a private conversation. We heard conversations of other couples from both tables on our sides ( which was annoying )
O.K., we were there on a Saturday night - worst night, I'll give you that. Although crowded, we were seated close to our reservation time. That's a plus but it was down hill from there. We had to ask 4x for bread. We all ordered drinks - 3 came and 5 minutes later the 4th. DON'T SERVE UNTIL ALL ROUNDS ARE COMPLETE. Same with dinners - 3 came and the 4th 5 minutes later (see previous comment). The place was roaring, everybody shouting over everybody else. Final insult was the bill - charged for 1 extra drink and the wrong price for 1 that we had. The manager had to handle that one. Oh, the food - the burgers were good and my wife's chicken dish fair. All in all, you would do better to go somewhere else. We will.
Very disappointing... Food was nearly inedible. I ordered the BLT with egg, which was good the previous time I'd been there but this time, it was extremely runny with loads of mayonnaise . I asked the waiter if he could ask have it made without the egg being so runny and without the mayo. Well, it was just as bad, if not worse. I couldn't eat it. The waiter never came back to ask me if it was better and pretty much ignored us. The only things we liked were the mimosas and coffee. The food was horrible. Will not return.
My overcooked cod sandwich was dry and tasteless. The description on the menu said it was accompanied by a kale salaď.....that must have been the mush under the bun....and chips that overwhelmed my plate....covered more than half .
Indoors was too noisy so we sat outside. Only a bit quieter.
Good food. My dining companion really loved his cavatelli with rib ragu. I had a hamburger that was nice. I thought the restaurant was overpriced and extremely loud. Only heard about 1/3 of what was being said to me from the person across the table. Our server was very friendly.
The Smith is consistent, something that cannot be said about many restaurants. I tried their bar steak and had salad instead of fries. Who cant stop eating great fries? Their's are great and that is why I avoid them - too fattening. The bar steak is abut 8-10 ounces, cooked perfectly. Not the most tender piece of meat, but for $26 or was it $29 dollars, it is great. We sat outside because the only downside to the Smith is that it is not designed to reduce noise. Interior noise can be so loud, it becomes a turn-off. The place is always packed, because it is a great place. Coming back, but need more people to order the mac and cheese - awesome!
Overall the experience was ok. What was most disappointing was the hostess coming to check back with us and asking how I was enjoying HIS salmon. I explained that I couldn't eat what I ordered due to the dish including red peppers, which I am allergic to and were not listed in the menu as in the dish, so we swapped meals. The response was Oh...so would you like to order dessert? I do see what people say about the noise...thankfylly we ate outside where it was quieter!
The Smith is a favorite go-to of ours. There is something for everyone on the menu and any choice is a good one. The wait staff are friendly as well as knowledgeable about the offerings. We have eaten in a few of the locations, most recently the Lincoln Center site, and enjoyed it very much.
