*Special New Years Eve 4 course dinner menu, reservations available from 4pm - 10pm
Food was excellent and the server was amazing. Price was a little steep but all in all a very good experience
I love the ambiance here and the location when your day allows for some touring around. We enjoyed our brunch for the most part - had a few things not so perfect but sometimes that happens. If you have a small child be sure to explain that it might be helpful to receive the meal first or quickly. Parents weren't asked, didn't think to specify and it was a bit long of a wait. I will go back FOR SURE as I like Smith.
My boyfriend and I made reservations at SMITH for my birthday. We ordered the half fried chicken and two cocktails. The chicken was incredible and the creativity of the cocktails was amazing. Mine came in a tea cup and his came in a cool tall green glass. We will definitely be returning!
Sorry but I love french fries and the 12 $ potion of burned bites with truffle oil not worth the money ,my philosophy ..if a Kitchen can't make crispy french fries and pay attention to a simple staple it sets the tone for the rest of the courses ,way to over prized poor quality . Zucchini fritters ..not crispy mushy ,it came with tomato sauce ... this sauce was reduced to a thick paste not even closed to a sauce ...cauliflower not properly cooked ,hard inside , soggy outside . Face value of the mushroom ravioli ,poor presentation ...everything looked like it was rushed ... can't recommend it ,won't come back .
Our experience was overall good as was the quality of the food. However it took over an hour to have our dinner delivered which was less than desirable.
I wrote a yelp review
Food very poor and small samples
Great atmosphere, service was great! Food was good!
My friend received the wrong dish but kept it anyhow since it was one she was thinking of ordering anyhow. The waiter apologized and was willing to take it back but it would have taken too long.
What a terrible experience. My toast want buttered, my omelet was rubbery, potatoes was drenched in oil. It was the worst experience ever.
I love the breakfasts at Smith (Flannel Skillet, Shakshuka were outstanding), so I was disappointed that the food at dinner was so bland. The pickerel was OK, but the bussell sprouts and the beets were both flat and uninspired - beets were almost tasteless. Maybe the chef at Passero would share their recipes for both! Nice staff though, and decent wine.
I had a very good experience at Smith. Great burger and fries with a wonderful gravy. Service was awesome and friendly. Will certainly return !
They have an Excellent weekend brunch menu! We will be back!
Food was excellent. Started with Fresh oysters. Nice to find fresh oysters in Winnipeg. Main course was the Pickerel and the Pork Chop. Both outstanding.
Alexis was a great server! Well done
Great place with excellent food ! Our server Jane was fantastic!
We had a great night at Smith Restaurant.
The server was fantastic! Super fun and very knowledgeable about the food/menu. I have celiac so an informed person helps make me feel so much better about eating somewhere.
The food was delicious. We started with an appetizer (pounded cheese served with gluten free bread) and then each had one of the specials (scallops). We were with a group so tried some desserts and they were all really yummy (flourless chocolate cake, creme brûlée and sorbet made in-house - all gluten free as well). Overall this is a great place to go. The only small item is that the drinks are slightly over priced in my opinion.
So happy the brought back the pounded cheese!
Portions and taste overall were good. A couple side dishes were underwhelming ( cauliflower and beets). Service was good.
Phenomenal food. My friend and I went out for dinner and we had the pickerel, half chicken, beets, gratin, and Mac and cheese. In addition to the steak tartare (LOVED), and the cauliflower fritters. Highly recommend. The staff was friendly, and a nice ambiance. In addition, the cocktails paired well! Definitely coming back.
Food is always bomb
This is our favourite restaurant. The service is exceptional. Our meal took a long time to come out as there was a mishap in the kitchen, but our server kept checking in on us, quick refills on the italian sodas, complimentary homemade bread, and once the meal came out, they apologized and offered free dessert for the wait. The ambiance is calming, elegant and pleasant and the food and drinks are out of this world. The meals are à la carte, so it is fairly expensive but worth it for a nice dinner.
Food was great but service a slow.
We were there with a group of six for a New Years Day Brunch. 3 of the eggs Bennidect where all overcooked and 2 sent back I ate mine as is but it was very over cooked eggs. The other three, one came with the Benny's the sandwich was about 15 mins later and the last we were mostly done and it arrived with the redone Benny's. They burned the Falafel on the first sandwich. They discounted two of the Bennys and free coffee. It was a terrible first impression and I will not recommend it to anyone.
Service was great, attentive and perfect timing. Food was presented beautifully and delicious. The experience was exactly what we were looking for.
Great Christmas buffet, really enjoyed everything from the food to the ambience.
The atmosphere was chilled. I was happy with the server I got. He was friendly, quick, and professional.
We had such high hopes with the positive reviews this place had received! I don't know where they came from because our experience was FAR from great. The server seemed very confused all night and was nowhere to be found the majority of the evening. We all ordered some kind of meat and it was all overcooked, dry and tough. We had one night in Winnipeg and many restaurants to choose from and I choose this one. What en epic failure on my part and how embarrassing to the rest of my group. I've worked in the restaurant industry for many years and I would not recommend this place based off our experience.
Hello, Im so sorry to hear about your experience. Would you be so kind as to email me privately? Sarah@innforks.ca
The round tables for 2 are extremely small and they are placed in awkward locations in tight aisles within the restaurant. The burgers were overcooked and there was an upcharge to replace fries with a salad. The ambiance and service was very good, but we won't be in a hurry to go back.
Great atmosphere, friendly staff and delicious food! ❤️
Food and service was very good. What we did not like is the size and placement of the table for 2 people. The tables are very small, something you would expect in an outdoor cafe. They are uncomfortably placed in the main thoroughfare of the dining you, therefore there’s no privacy. If you want a romantic dinner for 2, forget it. I booked as anniversary dinner.
Place was quiet but our food still took 45 minutes and my chicken was terribly dry. Mentioned it to our server and never saw a manager about it. Absolutely disappointed. Service was slow and mediocre, at best.
Having eaten here before, we had no hesitation to book again.
Excellent food, great value, warm ambiance. Will strongly recommend this to anyone. And will continue to return for a great experience another time
The meal at the Smith was excellent as usual. The noise level is often high in this restaurant which does make it difficult at times to carry on a conversation. On this particular night the service was not good. Our waiter was not attentive, often absent, and a bit arrogant.
Food is always great. Service is always terrible. When will I ever remember that?
Good food, really great Charcuterie board full of delicious extras. Lamb was lamby, NY steak was well seasoned. A la carte pricing added cost for three side dishes..
Very dark at our table, the table next to us used their phones to read the menu. A dark room takes away from enjoying the colourful dishes, diminishing flavour.
Its that time of the year where all good restaurants are noisy, so it was nice that the music was turned down not competing.
Service was super knowledgeable, brought great beer pairings.
Food was awful. Salty. Salty. Salty. My tongue was painful.
Our server knew the dishes well and could comment on the menu. The food was delicious!!! Had the wild mushroom gnocchi-amazing!!
Beef Tartar was great.
The burger patty was dry.
Ahi Tina main was excellent.
Sorry, I can't recommend this restaurant to my friends. The portions have gotten smaller and the prices have increased. There are many other better options out there for your dining dollar.
Very overpriced. Great server. Mediocre a la carte spuds. Uneatable brussels. Fantastic chicken.
