The Smith - Midtown Ratings and Reviews
This was a great find. We have been to NYC several times, but have never eaten here. The food was really good, but not fast. I would definitely go again. FYI - If you have a large group that needs tickets separated, our waiter said that they couldn't do it.
The Smith is my girlfriend's favorite restaurant. While I'm not as high on it, I do still really enjoy it. The desserts are all great. Dinner was good, but nothing special.
Personally I enjoy the brunch menu more, but you really can't go wrong visiting any of the Smith's locations for brunch, a sit down lunch, or dinner.
We had business guests from the UK - first visit to NYC and we chose The Smith for lunch given the menu options. Everyone chose different dishes and everyone raved about their selection - high praise to the kitchen staff for the consistency in delivering great meals from beef to seafood to Italian. Our waiter was wonderful - he was so attentive and gracious to every table. He treated the food allergy we had shared via Open Table with the utmost concern and care. We would go back to The Smith and I will look at the receipt for the waiter's name to ask for his section.
The food was mediocre, fried green beans were not good at all. The tomatoe soup was my absolute favorite.
I had a shrimp pasta dish with black noodles, the noodles were overwhelming and I did not care for them.
The porkchop was so strong in rosemary it was not as enjoyable.
A nice restaurant clearly very popular with the locals -- a reservation is recommended during busy times. My omelette was good but not great. But the side of brussel sprouts and the coffee were fantastic. I would give it a second chance and order a different entree.
Great place. Place was busy at 8pm on a Friday. Luckily, we reserved thru OpenTable and was seated immediately. Had the calamari (fantastic!) and then had the steak (also fantastic)! Our waitress was awesome - very attentive even with it being quite busy. Would go back next time I'm in town.
Much as we have a national bird, the chicken pot pie should be our National Pot Pie. If you order it, sit at the end of the table to keep prying fingers away from that cheddar biscuit topping.......
And sticky toffee pudding, where have you been all my life?
Very satisfied! Celebrate my anniversary with the boyfriend, both ordered the burger royale... yum! I ordered mine without cheese (lactose intolerant) as well as the "50/50" sauce on the side. Boyfriend got the works. I don't know why people say the fries aren't good... i polished those bad boys off! Overall a great experience and will definitely be back, maybe for brunch?!
I'm torn with my review because while the service was outstanding and food was delicious, the restaurant is very cramped and loud. It was hard to hear my friend who sat just across the table from me. I'm sure there really isn't any time when this restaurant is extremely crowded. I don't think I'd go back to this restaurant due to the how loud it was, but we did have a nice meal.
The Smith, at its various locations, is our go-to spot for Brunch when in NYC. The 2nd avenue location is noisy but the food and the drinks are great and the service was also good. It's definitely for a younger crowd but they don't mind us boomers showing up.
This place was PACKED at 11 am on a Sunday when we arrived for our reservation. One person from our party wasn't there yet, so we had to wait in the bustling bar with the walk-ins until she arrived before we could be seated. When I got a text that she was going to be an additional 20 minutes late, I talked to the hostess asking what we should do - should we move on to another spot because we'd lose our reservation? Or keep waiting? They sat the 3 out of 4 of us right away instead of letting us lose our reservation. Service like that makes all the difference in the world to me! They could have easily sat any of the walk-in parties and made up for the money they'd lose by letting us walk out the door, but they chose to honor our reservation instead. From there, we went on to have some of the best avocado toast and other brunch plates I've had anywhere. A quintessential New York spot, also great for fashionable people watching (though, we were dressed down casual and felt 100% comfortable, too).
