The Smith - Midtown Ratings and Reviews

It is very loud inside, so if you want to dine you need to speak loudly to have a conversation. Also, the tables are so close together that you can literally rub elbows with the person next to you. The table had to be completely pulled out to get the person in the booth. There's tight seating and then this. I didn't plan to dine with strangers at my table. With all the options in NYC. I would not go here again.

Have walked by the Smith before, great vibe, but noise level always too high, needed a late dinner Sunday night, still jamming, but crowd included parents and children, noise level moderate, food was terrific! Will be returning soon!

Good classic brunch! Free cocktail on Sundays when you order a brunch dish. It is really loud (so many people) and there is a long wait (if you don't have a reservation). Overall, a good place to meet friends for a bite to eat

Very loud, but also very good. We only had apps & salads, but we enjoyed them. The tuna tartare was delish and the calamari, really spicy. I had the chopped salad for my meal and it was also good. We glanced around at other plates and everything looked great. Will def go back again.

Fun place to meet a friend for dinner and drinks! Got the crab cake tater tots to start - delicious snack! Burger and tuna steak salad were both very good. We enjoy the vibe of the many Smith locations - recommend for small groups as it can be loud so hard to have conversation with too many people at your table.

This was a great experience for our 11 person family holiday get together meal. Everyone loved their meal, which is unusual. The food was absolutely delicious, and the attitude of the manager toward our large party was enthusiastic and wonderful!

The portion sizes are really good, food is well presented but the eggs dont really come warm. The place is huge, so don't expect a cozy and romantic environment. Also, the ratio of waiters-customers is pretty low. Overall, price/value relationship is good.

The night did not start off great- water glasses on our table had lipstick stains on them and our server was run off her feet-apps were good-barely had time to eat them- then our meal was served. Entrees were disappointing-chicken pot pie had no chicken in it and top was not cooked. Cod was too fishy and left a bad taste in our mouth. Was really looking forward to this meal but was disappointed.

Upon arrival, they sat my party of three at what felt like a child size table that couldn't fit two plates on it, if that. I asked to be moved, which they obliged.
The noise level was ridiculous and the restaurant was cold.

Our experience was wonderful! Our server Stacey did an exceptional job and all the staff from food runners to hosts were very friendly and attentive.
The food was delicious. Our table shared the Monkey Bread, Mac & Cheese and the Potato Chips with Blue cheese fondu, all of which we loved. My personal favorite brunch entree was the Short Rib Hash, but the BLT&E was great too.

The waitress took 20 min to approach and give menus although she saw us sitting. She was rude and inattentive, it was a Friday morning and it wasn't busy. The food was excellent and so healthy. I had blt croissant and it was awesome, the French toast is huge and delish

We had our Thanksgiving dinner at The Smith this year. In the past we've had sub-par experiences with pre-fixe holiday meals, so had relatively low expectations, but I'm pleased to say The Smith wowed on all accounts.
We were seated promptly at our reserved time, our waitress was friendly and attentive, and the food was excellent.
Thanks so much - we'll be back!

Went with 2 girlfriends for Thanksgiving dinner. The appetizers were great, but it was all downhill from there. The mains were flavourless, tired and disappointing. The best thing was the mac & cheese, but even then it wasn't anything to write home about. The desserts were boring and not well executed. Will not be returning here!

Excellent dinner on a special occasion. Lots of families having a great time. Delicious sides and entrées. Impressive service with team bringing the whole dinner at one time. Teamwork! Will return on a future NYC visit.

Went here for Thanksgiving with family and loved absolutely every single dish. From the cornbread to the kale salad, grilled shrimp and all the Thanksgiving fixings--I cannot wait to come here again! Simply divine.

Came for thanksgiving meal with a reservation and was seated quickly but then the waiting began. Food came out cold with a lot of time in between and we were never never brought stuffing for the table. Additionally we came as the day turned to night and the lighting was being adjusted constantly. Ambiance seemed better suited for a large group of friends or just a regular meal.
Food was okay but I've had better prix fix thanksgiving meals.

The Smith was recommended by a good friend who works in Manhattan. We thoroughly enjoyed the fixed Thanksgiving day menu. It was full of seasonal, organic and regional sourced ingredients. It was simply and perfectly prepared and was delicious. We particularly enjoyed the handcrafted cocktails. The special '1621' cocktail was fantastic. Our service was impeccable and friendly and the environment was warm, casual and comfortable. The entire meal and experience was great.
