COVID19 protocols were poorly implemented. Hostess checked vaccine cards but did not checks names against ID as per law. We were seated at the end of a row of tables immediately beside another table for 2, so close to them that I wasn’t even sure I could fit between the tables without touching menus and the ladies purse on the bench beside her. Social distancing measures were not followed. The hostess reseated us. The place was almost empty and we had a reservation so why would they seat us right on top of somebody else especially against public health orders for social distancing?? A window table would have been nice for this planned date, but we got a table by the kitchen that was at least more private except all the employees walking by repeatedly to a back door. A private dining area nearby was occupied by a couple of employees sitting at the table with place settings and they used the table to talk for a lot of the time we were there-I wouldn’t want to be seated at that table after having people touching and talking over the place setting in a pandemic. I had the steak and frites with chimichurri sauce. The fries were a bit greasy with black burnt pieces in them and a small amount of coarse salt for seasoning. The steak was cold, 6oz and had no seasoning on it. The chimichurri sauce was not made of fresh ingredients and had no real flavour. There was no steak knife and the server offered to get me one but disappeared so I could not get it or ask for salt and pepper until I was almost done. I went to the restaurant particularly to have that dish and was extremely disappointed after hearing what a great restaurant it was by others including out of town coworkers who I have suggested stay at that hotel in the past. The dessert menu was uninspiring unless you loved cream. I would have ordered a cocktail after I had some food if staff had checked with me. Measures were taken for customer satisfaction but overall I felt that no one cared if we enjoyed our “date”.

Comfortable and homey, modern design with local colour. Antler chandelier would have made the room pop if only the light bulbs had been cleaned. Upscale digs like this turn on small details.
Server was attentive and friendly.
Was disappointed with the steak, disappointed with the gluey potatoes and disappointed with the rugged looking side of beets.
Espresso and latte were terrible- frankly awful. Oftentimes if an establishment misses in the other areas then a cup of great tasting coffee can help to redeem the experience. Not so. It’s hard to imagine how an upscale restaurant like Smith cannot know how bad their coffee is. Tasted like brown water ( espresso). I thought to myself, I’d hate to be staying here and have to drink this awful coffee especially first thing in the morning. Another detail, another failure.
The dessert was awful. It had to have been sitting in a dessert tray for awhile as it was so dry I could barely swallow. Whoever cut the cake and plated it must have seen that it wasn’t fit to be served but yet .... it was. Again, who is checking for these details?
The choice for us was Smith or the Keg. In hindsight..... we should have gone to the Keg. Attention to detail and consistency is the key to the Kegs success and to why customers keep coming back. In that regard, Smith has failed.

Food was great, server was excellent gave us some good recommendations however we were right near where some other servers were I don’t know if they were cleaning up plates or whatever and kept dropping stuff on the floor and made a lot of noise behind us or behind me several times so it was hard to have a conversation at some point in time if it wasn’t for that it would’ve been all perfect

Although we had reserved for the patio we changed to indoors because of wasps. Inside is fine except that it can be noisy, especially with larger parties close by. This makes it difficult to hear the server. That said, food and service were superb.

Braised Pork belly with Kimchi Rice was an umami bomb and great start. Berkshire Pork Chop with Crimini Mushroom vinagrette and asiago was a great flavour combo! Pan seared Pickerel was also great and the Smith whipped potatoes and Roasted Beets with dill were great compliments!
Worth the trip!

We were celebrating my sister’s birthday and after pedicures headed to Smith for dinner. The ambience is lovely, but the food was stellar. The flavours they bring in their dishes is truly unique. Our server was one of the best I have ever experienced in our city. Matt M made the evening even more enjoyable with his great table side manner and his honest opinion.

I love the patio part of SMITH. the indoors were great as well as it is well decorated and very posh. It was my first time and I was really impressed with how courteous and attentive the servers are. The chacuterie board was phenomenal. Definitely looking forward to having brunch here. The cocktails are tasty as well.

Did not ask if we lived in same household, ID, vaccination status etc…dined inside. Limited menu which is understandable but having to pay for sides with your meal is a turn off. $14 for a basic Moscow Mule! Likely won’t be back.

We both had the pickerel with sides of mushrooms and beets. The portions were substantial and delicious. One of us has celiac disease and our needs were understood.

The food was delicious, but I ordered a $36 “rack” of lamb, and only got 3 lamb chops! Last time I checked, a rack of lamb has a hell of a lot more than 3 bones! Tasty, but at $12/chop, the value certainly isn’t there.

We ate on the patio and the atmosphere was fantastic. There were a lot of people but the noise level was such you could easily have a conversation with your dining mates.

Service excellent, friendly and professional.

I had the fried chicken sandwich and it was really great!! The person I was dining with had the same sandwich and said she loved it also. We both ate every bite!

I would go again and I would recommend to a friend.

Restaurant was quiet at 7:30 pm, waitstaff was friendly, if a little slow with requests for more water. Meals were good, with the exception of a steak dish and spicy chips…they were cold and soggy, and completely bland. Portion size of the dish was small. The fried chicken ordered by a family member was good, but we missed the buttermilk ranch sauce that used to accompany it.

Very disappointed by the “patio” seating which is inches away from the parking lot. Definitely a bummer considering the “fine-dining” atmosphere indoors. I would reconsider this idea since it clashes with your brand in a very brash manner.

Also, while our final server did well to help our mood, it took a long time to get served as we ended up moving indoors.

Expected more considering it was our wedding anniversary.
