    It was our first visit, and the food and drinks were fantastic. Although not as expensive as some other steakhouses, it was still a bit pricey. Nonetheless, the top-notch service and quality of the food made the experience really enjoyable. We will definitely return for more.

    Too noisy outside. You are in the street. My fault— should have eaten inside.

    Had a lovely brunch here. We loved sitting outside on a gorgeous summer morning. My goat cheese omelet was one of the better omelettes I’ve had in a while and their chicken sausage was delightful. My husband loved their Jonny cake Benedict and spoke very highly of their bacon. The meals came with a brunch cocktail and I was happy with their Bloody Mary. It had a little bit extra horseradish so I was a fan. My only criticism was we were sitting for over 15 min without a server even greeting us; I did have to go find the hostess as all tables around us that were sat after we were had been greeted and had even ordered. However the server that filled in made a point to make up for it and our assigned server did finally stop by after we got out drinks and then checked on us more than once. They definitely made up for it. Will definitely come back!

    We had a great experience and the service was fantastic. It is very loud so not the place for deep conversations. Overall a hit with our group

    My husband and I are not from around here and we never get to experience things like this. We ended up here for dinner and everything was truly perfect and worth the cost. Absolutely will be returning!!!

    We really enjoyed our meal at The Smith. Our server was exceptional. Unfortunately we didn’t catch his name, but he had pink hair and an awesome kind attitude. We felt taken care of and enjoyed our meal and cocktails. Thank you!

    Excellent experience, all parts of it. Came with a large group and they handled it with ease. The manager came over early, introduced herself, checked in after the meal. The team was prompt, patient, and kind. They split checks individually for the large group. Food was excellent and so were the drinks. All around fantastic experience!
