If it wasn't so damn loud in there, it would be one of my favorite restaurants in the city. The white subway tile is both a great look and a bad choice.

Once again, a great experience at The Smith Nomad. Friendly, genuine professional service and terrific food. Such a reliable spot, no wonder it’s always buzzing. Well done, Smith.

Met up with a friend on a Monday night and The Smith was the perfect spot. It’s been a while since I’ve returned but the food is still amazing and the service was impeccable.

Possibly one of the worst burgers I’ve ever had. Steak is what to order there. People seemed to be ordering the steak maybe because they knew about the burger. New bar though for barring up once covid Is finally done.

Requests for order were not accommodated. Asked for cheese on side for two appetizers and they were delivered incorrectly.

Food was sent to wrong table.

Ordered steak with salad for an entree and steak was undercooked and too be honest was a fairy small salad with very few pieces of steak for $29.

First time the smith experience was disappointing

Great food and menu tho service was not great. Drinks took almost 20 min to arrive, food longer. But most annoying was servers were hard to come by if you needed anything between orders. Food and ambiance are excellent.

My fiancé and I came here to celebrate our new engagement. We were sat right away, having made reservations in advance. Our waiter was fantastic. He provided great dining service and made sure we were taken care of. I asked our waiter if the restaurant does anything for engagements and he told us not really, BUT he ended up surprising us with two complimentary glasses of champagne and an amazing toffee dessert. The food was great as always, being that this is one of my favorite dining spots in the city. Overall, love coming here and would recommend to anyone searching for a great spot in midtown.

It's a great ambiance inside. We sat outside because of Covid, but Broadway being closed was great. The food is good, but the drinks seem to be made with almost no liquor and our waiter seemed really disinterested.

Water glasses were filthy. How do water glasses get filthy? When I asked for clean glasses the waitress didn’t apologize or even seem concerned and the rest of our service from her was slow.

Check in at the reservation desk was great. Very personable, engaged staff. Server was ok, not great, had to be engaged to elicit any commentary. Big miscommunications on one entree, one member of our group asked for bolognese, with tagliatelle vs spaghetti. It came with the squid ink tagliatelle! Who would ever want that? Most disappointing was the bar service. The bar was no where near full, we were a 6:15 pm reservation on a Sunday night, so shouldn’t have been a big lift, but very poor service. Not sure who was to blame bar or waitress. Bus boys were also over zealous. Taking plates before food was finished. Bot asking prior to removing. Food was excellent. I know it’s tough getting people to work these days. But if you do, they need to be trained.

The food was reminiscent of a truck stop diner for more fine dining pricing. The breakfast potatoes were salty and the avocado toast was basic. Even the side honey got my tea was watered down. Not to mention we were seated next to a mosquito nest.

Had a great brunch. They were able to seat us as soon as we got there even though our reservation was not for another 20 mins and the restaurant was busy.
Great food, great service.

We sat outside in their lovely side walk set up. They have an abundance of seating outdoors. I ordered a salad that came with way too much dressing on it. The manager came over, immediately agreed, whisked it away and quickly brought a new one. We really enjoyed out meal.

Server was in an extreme rush to flip the table we sat down or handed a menu and he asked for our entire order before we even had time to pick up the menu we asked if we could order cocktails as we look at the menu. When the cocktails arrived we placed our order chips and calamari for appetizer I didn’t want to order the entrées yet but he sort of insisted so we ordered the salmon for myself and the Seabass for my wife. Appetizers came quickly calamari was so so needed 30 or 40 more seconds of cooking before we can finish our appetizers the entrées were placed on top of what we were eating and we didn’t get what we ordered we got to Seabass entrées and not my salmon food runner returned the food. by the time my wife finished her meal mine arrived this is the point at which the server asked how things were going.

Some good, some bad. I've been to the smiths numerous times. I find the food is usually very good. The brick pressed chicken is always good. We had the steak this time which was pretty good but not outstanding. My wife had the lobster salad, which was VERY lacking in lobster for the $$. My daughter had the kids salmon which she really enjoyed but was drowning in lemon juice. Not my first trip here, and I will be back, but this time missed the mark a bit.

The food was very good, but the noise level on Saturday night was unbearable. We had to skip dessert to escape the noise.
