We come here all the time for a great set of comfort offerings in a pleasant setting. Always pleased with the service and have been more than happy with the correction of the occasional fax pas. Management is very smart. Even the stroller set can't keep us away for brunch. Come and enjoy the Avacado toast!!!

I decided on The Smith due to my granddaughter's finicky appetite (she is 7). My granddaughter and adult niece really enjoyed our food and the lively energy of this spot. The staff was more than welcoming and accommodating. while it is not actually a "kids" restaurant, they were able to produce a menu of childrens favorites for us. Great time.

When I checked in, I was told that when all the parties arrived then they would seat us. When I notified them that the parties had arrived, I waited an additional 20 minutes and saw they were seating the same number of parties that had arrived after us.

The braised short ribs were nice... the follow up service from the restaurant manager was really great and the staff showed a great attitude about making sure you truly enjoy your dining experience. They really do care about having a great dining experience!

Came here for lunch at 12pm on a Friday and was pleasantly surprised by the food !! I ordered the seared tuna salad, which tasted delicious and a good portion. The lobster roll stole the show !! Although a bit expensive ~30 bucks .. Super delicious and came with these spiced up potato chips !! We were feeling extra fancy and decided to order dessert... Was not that great I would just stick to lunch . We had the carrot cheesecake and the cheesecake part was still frozen when served to us. It was finally the normal temperature by the time we finished. All in all a good lunch during the work week in midtown east !

Having been to the East Village location many times, we landed at the Midtown East location of The Smith for a birthday dinner. We were a big group with reservations made a month in advance, while our table took a little while longer than anticipated, the staff more than made up for it by bringing a round of appetizers on the house which we so appreciated! Our wait staff were wonderful, the food, no matter what you pick is delicious (but make sure to get a side of mac n cheese!!!!)

My gf and I brought my mom here for birthday brunch. It was hopping! We had a reservation and were seated pretty promptly. Our server was polite and attentive; we made a few special requests and she was very accommodating. Also, she was close at hand the whole time we were there, which was great. Sometimes a server brings your meal and then you never see them again, but not so at The Smith. They have a fun cocktail menu, I'd been for drinks before, but if you order from the left side of the brunch menu you get a complimentary (basic) brunch cocktail, which is a nice touch. The food itself was excellent, the portions are big and the prices are very reasonable for what you get. I tried some of everything (expressly so that I could write this review and not because I am a glutton, at all). The breakfast pot pie is enormous and delicious. The avocado toast is perfect if you don't want to go crazy with sausage and eggs, but probably used 1.5 whole avocados because it was also a good sized portion. I had the Sicilian baked eggs based on reviews, and they totally lived up to the hype. Also, I love really spicy food so when a menu item says "spicy" I'm always ready to be disappointed. I'm happy to say that the Sicilian eggs had a respectable kick! All in all I would strongly recommend The Smith, and I'll certainly be returning soon.

Big portions (lots of take home boxes were observed) of very good food. If you order something with fries, get ready for the challenge to finish all of of them. Friendly and ENERGETIC environment. Be prepared to talk loudly to your companion(s) in order to be heard.

Our server was very sweet and helped to make the evening enjoyable. The appetizer crab cakes were delicious and my bibimbap was the best I've ever tasted. My husbands steak could have been more flavourful and there were too many French fries. The restaurant has a great vibe and is a lot of fun. I would return.

Had an enjoyable meal. Only drawback was the noise level. Being of the older generation, we found it difficult to have a conversation.
Decided to go elsewhere for coffee and deserts.
Other than the noise level, had an enjoyable meal. Service was good.

Wonderful experience. Met up with some friends for dinner. Amazing salmon. Everything on the menu looked great, my friend had the burger and loved it, other friend had the pork chop and raved about the taste. The only meal that wasn't amazing was the steak salad, it was sub par for the price, but the rest was good! Would recommend!

They don't know how to cook stake, they screwed up medium well twice. I'm not sure if they where training new people but the wait staff did not know what they where doing. However, the manager, bartender, and hostess where every accommodating.

Met a friend for lunch mid-week, and had an excellent experience. I have food allergies and confirmed that the item I was planning to order didn't contain anything that I couldn't have. Not only did the server confirm this for me, but the manager came over personally a few min later to let me know that they had talked to the chefs and let them know my allergy. What a pleasure to have such a personalized experience - while unnecessary for the manager to come over, it really showed their dedication to service. Food was great! Thank you!
