We loved this place. Service was great. Bar is beautiful and vibe was lively but still allowed for pleasant dinner conversation! Mussels and Caesar salad were very yummy. Their bread is great too. Love the big carafe wine option for table.
Sunday brunch with my sister. Oysters were delicious and they serve a solid Bloody Mary, but the shrimp & grits were overcooked.
Went for Sunday brunch with my sister. Great ambiance & great food. Service was not super engaging or personal but was happy to be left alone during the meal.
Great food as well as service. Perfect stop after a trip to the Portrait Gallery.
I was very disappointed with my Smith Steak. While it was cooked perfectly to a temp of medium rare, the steak was not seasoned at all.
Not worth the money. Food was tasty but average and not worth the price.
Nice atmosphere. Nice people. Just overpriced.
Went at lunch time and the service was really good. Food was brought in a reasonable time and it was hot and very tasty.
Delicious mussels, burger, fries. But service was slow. Ran out of the draft beer we wanted.
Happy hour before a hockey game was great
Great service by all the staff and the food was amazing!
Nice selection of foods both large and small. Quick friendly service. Great place to go before events at Cap One Arena.
Excellent food. Excellent. Service was not on point
I would come back to try other items on menu. The Smith Burger I ordered was prepared as requested and very tasty.
They got my order wrong. The waiter was inattentive. To be fair much of this may have been due to the pandemic. As with many restaurants they were understaffed.
Went for the caps game. Had a reservation but no one sat us. Was eventually put at a long high top table in the bar area. Only one server for the whole bar (felt bad for him). Drinks were late and my drink was incorrect. Won’t go back for a pregame dinner again.
Understanding the pandemic has done a number on staffing the wait staff could use some help. Too many people not enough staff. Our person was excellent when we arrived but as the crowd increased he was overwhelmed - not his fault just too many tables.
Great pre hockey dinner and drinks. Great food and service!
We were there on a Caps game night with a 5:00 pm reservation. We had 4 different servers, which became confusing. Drinks, including iced tea, took a very long time. Food service was quicker. The food was very good but the service was lacking.
I came for a 3-course dinner in the bar section. My oyster appetizer came out only after I told the food runner bringing my dinner that it had not yet arrived. This is after the server told someone to check on it multiple times. Once I informed the runner, she brought it right out, so it was obviously ready to be served prior to me saying anything. Then again during dessert, the server had to ask someone to check on my order, which again immediately came out. The server/bartender was very attentive, but there was definitely a lack of attention between the kitchen and dining area.
great service and the food choices were awesome and unique. Very NYC vibe with the indoor outdoor feel.
Brunch was great. Latte/coffee were very good. Accommodated kids as well! Would definitely go back.
Brunch food was okay but service was terrible. Waiter forgot about us for long stretches. Tallied check incorrectly. Do not recommend.
Very different than I was expecting but in a good way. Had one of the best pasta dishes I’ve ever had with their Spaghetti Bolognese. My wife got Shrimp and Grits. Grits were very creamy and the shrimp cooked perfectly. Will definitely be back!
Excellent food. Timing was a little off but they handled it perfectly.
Service is leisurely, kitchen missed delivery of several times.
It was good. Sat outside.
First time eating here for brunch. The staff were phenomenal. The food was wonderful. Ate alone and had a wonderful time. Definitely worth eating here for brunch. The french toast, home fries, apple bacon, egg white omelet are excellent!
Was very busy but server worked with our special dietary needs.
Exceptionally fresh & flavorful food. Safe outdoor seating, too.
Average steak. Ok service but probably we were there too early.
Not sure I would return as better options for the money and the steak cooking was so so.
Excellent all the way around.
I love The Smith, and highly recommend the spicy salmon tartare appetizer. Very tasty cocktails as well.
We were traveling through Washington and looking for a place to eat. This fit the bill. Varied menu, reasonable prices for the city, indoor/outdoor dining, not too loud. We had the fresh roasted tomato soup, a Mediterranean salad, a Caesar salad and a salmon entree. All were very good, hot and served promptly although it was rather empty for a Sunday night. The tomato soup was prepared like onion soup with a slice of good bread at the bottom and melted cheese on top. Delicious! Service was good but a little inattentive by the main server.
Everything was great, just wish they hadn’t run out of some food options.
Service was a bit slow and it took awhile to get the check after asking. We were able to sit outside which was nice, inside seemed a little loud. The food was great! Something on the menu for everyone.
Good ambience with the doors open on a beautiful Fall day. Food was good. Portions look deceptively small but are very filling. Service hit the right note of attentive without being annoying or feeling like we were being hurried to free the table. Felt COVID safe with sanitizer, separated tables, and masks.. Thoroughly enjoyable brunch.
Our server JP was absolutely THE BEST. Service was prompt and professional. Food, cocktails and atmosphere exceeded our expectations for a special joint 59 and 60th birthday dinner. The filet mignon was perfect as was the pasta and seafood entree. An absolute “DO AGAIN”.
Our server Murat was great. The desserts were amazing. We ordered the sticky toffee and the s’mores in a jar and my kids loved it.
I took a large group to the Smith. We enjoyed our time, however we had to ask for service multiple times. Also once we ordered, we were informed that they were out of multiple types of steak without being clear which ones they were out of. So one member of my group got a NY Strip instead of a ribeye without being informed. Other members who requested steak on their salad ended up receiving chicken.
Smaller portions for the price and the service was very SLOW. Also brought me the wrong drink.
