Consistently great experiences here on my 3rd time. The food has always been great (shrimp & grits 2x/so good!), and the service is very attentive and friendly.
Noise level was too high for my taste. Service was just good 3 3/4 stars. The food (buratta apet., the oysters, ribeye steaks, spinach, french fries, toffee chocolate dessert was very, very good (4 stars). Would I go back? Not likely...
Service and food were great. We ate indoors I like that there was lots of room between tables we ere in the front bar. I wish they would not play music basically sound system not good. It is very noisy and always has been. Definitely enjoy eating outside, but it was too cold.
The food is very good. Very good Covid protection. The noise level prevents me from giving it 5 stars.
Lovely spot. The salmon tartare bites were so good we ordered seconds!
Consistently good food. Varied menu—good selections. Reasonable price points for that neighborhood. Excellent service at all levels—hostess, waitstaff, even the young man who bussed the table. House-made potato chips with blue cheese dip are not to be missed! Our table was ready when we arrived, which was especially appreciated as we were on a time schedule.
Super amazing food!
very average food. Good for outdoor dining but there is nothing remarkable about the food in any way
Great meal as always.
Attentive staff. Well organized safety check in.
The weekend brunch can get a bit packed but making a reservation helps with that. Overall I think this a great brunch spot with some good drink options.
It was a busy brunch, but we had our orders taken in the first few minutes of seating, waiting 45 min and our food arrived before our first round of drinks. Server didn’t apologize or even acknowledge that the drinks were later than the kitchen.
Food and company was great but probably wouldn’t recommend brunch any time soon.
Excellent food and service. Nice outdoor dining space.
Opera ran long but The Smith stayed open. Thank you for accommodating us after Turandot!
Great service and wonderful food. Cool retro vibe, little loud but would definitely go again!
Food was outstanding. Place was packed at 6 pm, but we were able to have an appetizer, drinks and entre and leave by 7 - thanks to Courteous and efficient service.
Everything was very good except we must have been dining at a change over in staff and forgot our French fries. To get the new wait staff was not easy. Otherwise it was excellent.
Great food. Service. Highly recommend it if in the area
Great service, wonderful "al fresco" dining at Lincoln Square. Waiter was very attentive.
Delicious meal and cool vibe. Quintessential NYC night time gathering spot.
Great house Manhattans! Something delicious for anyone on the menu. Solid option in the Lincoln Center area - gets mobbed post-opera -- wish they stayed open later to accommodate theatre-goers wanting to dine without pressure after the shows! Much more reasonably priced and better food than PJ Clarke's. Genial, attentive staff always. Bring back the tempura green beans from years ago!
Excellent food and efficient but considerate service. Perfect pre-performance. Just loved our server but everyone was so nice. Will definitely return.
Service once we got it was good.
Wine was OK.
Food was good.
But overall a good experience and YES i will go back!
We sat at a table on the outdoor plaza before going to the Metropolitan Opera. Everything went very smoothly - ordering, receiving our meals, checking out. A good pre-Lincoln Center spot.
Food was delicious and service was prompt and pleasant. Very convenient prior to a show.
It was a great time!
Food is good. Outdoor venue is spacious and tables are separated. Service was slow to start, but got attentive.
Always a solid fav!
It was first meal at Smith. It was recommended by a friend who lives in NYC on the weekends. We were surprised at how large the indoor space is. It is a very pretty interior, but our only negative comment is how very noisy it is with all the hard surfaces. The food was excellent, and the service was very good in spite of how busy it was at a Sunday brunch. We will definitely be back when in NYC again.
It’s absurd to wear masks while standing in an outdoor space when I can sit without one in the same space for 2 hours. It’s covid theater and a waste. Put a sour taste in my mouth.
Veggie burger too small too salty and too pricey for what it was.
Good overall experience but fix the little things. We’ll be back.
Great ambiance, delicious steaks & burgers, and lovely Lincoln Square view from the terrace - will definitely come back
So impressed by our entire dining experience. Tables are safely social-distanced, staff is wearing masks, the food is delicious and the staff is attentive. Excellent!
Enjoyed our meal prior to the Opera. Couldn’t be more convenient. The Filet & Ribeye steaks were very tasty & well prepared
Food quality used to be good and now completely went down.
Prices went up also
Wonderful food and service for brunch before ballet matinee
Very easy online reservation, great outdoor seating, very attentive service, and excellent food.
Food was delicious! Would definitely go back and recommend!
Great vibe- good food- great service! We always make time to come here when we visit the city from west coast
Wow the butternut squash schnitzel totally blew me away. If it’s on the menu, get it! Fries were great, but I don’t think I really needed it. My wife got the rigatoni and it was delicious as well. The calamari was *chef’s kiss* good. I honestly thought about ordering another plate of it.
Our sever was great. My husband mentioned offhandedly that it was our anniversary and she served us a slice of cake on the house. I was very impressed. And the food was excellent as always.
