Great Value

The Smith service is exactly what I've come to really appreciate - attentive and friendly without being cloying. The food was fantastic, too - good size portions of fresh, flavourful, and properly prepared classics. As for the ambience, I like the upscale casual vibe they've got going on in the lounge. :-)

Decent food, great service, overpriced, poor value in my humble opinion. We were lucky to have a good server who was very pleasant, polite, and paid attention to our table. But I wasn't pleased with the misleading prices on the website and then being surprised with the marked up price in the restaurant menu. Had I known this earlier, I would've picked a different restaurant for brunch. I don't think I will come back here, and for brunch I strongly recommend to consider other better restaurants in Toronto with better value, decent prices, great ambiance and great service!

Tables were close, meaning one's hears more of your neighbor's conversation. Our server wasn't attentive. Only just before we were about to leave was our water glass refilled. Meal seemed to take longer than normal to come to our table. The Hudson's Bay blanket material backing on the window wall looks like it needs a good cleaning.

The only complaint was not the fault of the restaurant. A couple with two small children felt it was perfectly acceptable to allow screaming and running around. While they found it adorable, I know everyone else did not, including the staff who apologized profusely to us.

The food is always amazing, this time was no different. I had the gnocchi (a favourite of mine) and my partner had the NY Steak. Ambiance was great, but the service was really slow and they only checked on us when they were bringing something over. Made it difficult to ask for drinks or anything else we needed. My partner was 3/4 through his steak by the time she asked how the "first bites" were tasting.

Today was the first time I had something that I didn't love- the french toast. We have been here multiple times for various occasions and the food is always fantastic. The french toast is merely average-nothing special. I love the ambience of this place. Great for everything from a romantic dinner to a get together with friends.

This was my second time going to smith for lunch and both times the service has been bad. This time- we weren’t told about the lunch specials until we asked, we were never offered a second round of drinks, the server never asked us how our food was and 2 hours after we got arrived, we had to flag our server down for the bill. Food is good, drinks are good but service is very slow/bad.

The over all atmosphere was very nice, the decor and mood helped curate high expectations. I went with my long term partner to celebrate 5 years together. I had heard that this place was pretty vegetarian friend and I wanted to take my partner out somewhere she could enjoy the food. We went for brunch, because those food are a little easier to avoid meats with and I was really impressed by my meal. I got the Hotel breakfast; it was very well prepared and the star of the dish were the breakfast potatoes. However my partner got the French toast and was a little dissapointed. They were very eggy, and once you added the syrup to them they became quite slimey. They server did ask if my partner was happy with her meal and when she got back the negative feedback did offer a new dish but when that was declined the service was pretty much over. We got the bill and left with a torn opinion. We do plan to return to try out the some of the dinner options and hopefully things are better on my partners end and I am excited to see what else they can provide.

The hostess did make an error on our order which she did rectify by comping the mistake but the food wasn’t very flavourful. The mistake also did make it so my significant other and I did not get to eat at the same time on Valentine’s Day so I think that just made us feel unimpressed about the whole experience.

The food was good and the server was knowledgeable and prompt on drink refills. The only thing that brought this review down is that one of our sides (the mac n cheese) never arrived. It also wasn’t on our bill so we assumed the server forgot. Usually I’d mention it but we were full enough with the rest of the food and we came on valentine’s day and knew it would have been a long wait for it. Highly recommend the cauliflower fritters.

My significant other and I come to Smith for all of our special occasions; birthdays, anniversaries, etc. The Devine dishes, fabulous service and lovely atmosphere keeps us coming back time and time again! Our favourite menu items are the Parisian gnocchi, cauliflower fritters, roasted beets and the blue cheese macaroni. Plus the drinks are always classy and delishous! Would definitely recommend to someone looking for a more fancy night out with friends or a loved one!!

A long-time friend was staying at the Inn at the Forks; he was in Winnipeg on a business trip. We were both comfortably seated at a nice quiet table. Our waitress was very sensitive and kind in accommodating our need to catch up with each other; we never felt rushed nor did we, finally, feel as though we had to wait once we did order. Our server was very knowledgeable of the menu and able to make recommendations and answer any questions. All the food was excellent. However I was especially wowed by the cauliflower fritters and the kimchi arancini (with pork belly). THAT, I could have eaten all night. I will definitely be back; I won’t wait until someone is staying at the Forks.

Service was quite slow but food was very good. The restaurant did not notify Open Table when we arrived for our reservation so 90 minutes later (we were still at the restaurant) I received an email from Open Table saying that we didn’t show up. When I let our sever know, she corrected it right away.

Great, highly recommend we went for brunch on Saturday! the ONLY reason the service didn’t get 5 stars is because our original service passed on the table (when we were almost done) all the new server did was take the payment kinda weird would of fathered our first server to ask if we wanted to settle up but the pass of the table wasn’t clear and we had to wait a while I finally got up and asked the first server if we could get the bill who was surprised the new server didn’t introduce herself. Otherwise food was great!

The romaine lettuce in the Caesar salad was brown. The hamburger was over cooked and the meat was dry, as was the hamburger bun. The food in general was over salted. Considering the cost, the food was subpar and of poor value.

I have eaten at this restaurant many times now. They do a great job of updating the menu seasonally and seems as if they try to use as many locally sourced produce as possible. They always have interesting cocktails and it is a great place to just go for drinks. They will often have live music as well. If you are in the Forks area and want a unique place to eat and drink this would be a great spot for you.

My partner and I went to Smith to celebrate her birthday. We both ordered steak. My partner ordered hers medium and when it came out it was barely medium rare. Our server asked if everything was to our liking and we let him know that the steak was under done. He promptly returned it to the kitchen. The same steak returned a few minutes later. Now it was dry on the outside and a bit charred but amazingly still medium rare in the middle. The server returned a second time to ask how things were and we told him it was still under done. The server actually said that it looked medium rare and this was after it was re-fired. At this time he offered to comp a dessert which was an ok compromise. We ended up not staying for dessert and we were comped for half of the one steak. I felt that we shouldn’t have been charged at all for my partners steak. She ended up leaving 25% of it on the plate and not enjoying the 75% that she did eat. When you pay more than $40 for a steak it should be better than the one you cook at home, not underwhelming.

A wonderful selection of salads, small plates, and large plates - all good for sharing. We particularly liked the salad with feta, and the arctic char. The risotto was delicious - but incredibly rich, and the broccolini, while perfectly done, was swimming in butter.
