A great restaurant serving innovative cuisine that both vegans and non-vegans would enjoy. Great ambience, with an enjoyable casual vibe.
A gastronomic revelation!! Congratulations to all 😍😍
Delicious - Hard to choose with an extensive list of menu items. I can't believe it's not meat!
Awesome food great place great staff altogether a wonderful food experience well worth numerous visits, just a shame we live in Perth and visit once a year.
Our new favourite place - amazing food, great value and friendly staff. Can’t wait to come back!
A fantastic restaurant with friendly and helpful staff, an inviting and interesting atmosphere and delicious vegan food. The cocktails were also delicious
Food that will blow your mind. Vegan or not, go and experience it.
I usually love this place and visit every time we are in Melbourne, but the main course was cold this time which was such a shame.
10/10 Took my omni friends here and they loved it (asked if we could go back) best vegan restaurant I've ever been to. Would definitely travel from Newcastle again....
Vegan pannacotta of your dreams. One of the best things I’ve ever eaten. Loving the ever changing and new addictions to the menu. Each one more inspired and delicious than the next one. :) :) :)
The carpaccio was extremely disappointing .. texture reminded me of fruit roll ups, but luckily the vodka pasta and beef ragu came around coz they were 10/10. The pasta sauce was like my Nonno's and the ragu was overwhelmingly realistic melt in your mouth flavorsome beef
Beautiful food! We had the 'feed me' option and there was so so much food, we had enough to take home for all to eat for lunch the next day! Great wine list, lovely staff.
It s dream come true for all Vegan out there, I always wish to find I place like this, thaaaaaank youuuu!!!!!!You will see my and my husbund over and over again❤️❤️❤️
So great. The best vegan food ive had since i stopped eating meat/dairy/eggs. Would recommend to everyone i know. So so fantastic
Great place. Fun staff. Terrific food. Imaginative cocktails.
One of the best Vegan restaurants in Australia. The menu evolves all the time, the food is awesome and the service is great.
What a wonderful concept for a venue, filled with all the right ingredients to make it the popular venue it is. The food is completely stellar and the flavours are like no other. Only down side is the seating. If you seek ambience and a quiet chat, it won’t be here. We were seated side by side with another table and conversation while quiet was audible and draining to our experience. But the service was fantastic and the atmosphere and attention to detail a treat. Coming back for sure!
Service staff were friendly and helpful. Potato Parma and Citrus Greens entrees were delicious. Spaghettini, Fazzoletti and Sauce & Meatballs were amazing. The Baked Vesuvius was out-and-out the clear winner!! Loved it all. Thankyou for a wonderful plant-based feast.
Smith and Daughters is always good food and good service, with a menu that changes throughout the seasons. High quality comfort food, or as healthy as you want it to be.
Always a delight coming to Smith and Daughters! Decided to treat myself and take myself to dinner after a long year of study, and I am very glad I did! Food was quick to come out, staff were super helpful, and left with a very full and very happy belly.
Food was fantastic, my partner described the wagyu & polenta main as the best dish she’d ever eaten since going vegan. My Fazzoletti was also very good. A few minor complaints - water was rationed (instead of left on the table) and not refilled frequently enough. Also, once we took the bill, it was 10 minutes before staff took our card. Otherwise very friendly and helpful. Overall, an excellent experience. We’ll be coming back.
You always know you will get a delicious meal created with great attention to detail at this place. It's our favourite place in Melbourne for high quality vegan food and a wonderful and welcoming atmosphere
Always delicious food on offer, & especially delightful to experience this amazing restaurant on Halloween evening...too much fun!!!!
Always a pleasure dining here
Never once had a bad time
That ragu meal is a killer, never had something so tasty before as a ragu since I was a child and my grandmother would cook it, and this was slighter better than hers !
You guys are the best
Food was exceptional. Unfortunately it was almost an hr before we got it though. Staff were great under the circumstances.
This is my 2nd visit to Smith & Daughters, however my 1st visit for lunch. As much as I enjoyed my first visit n the dinner menu was fantastic, the brunch menu was highly disappointing.
Strongly recommend the place for dinner
My guest and i had a superb expeience! The food was every bit as good as we had heard from several people. The staff were very helpful and as service began to quieten they were able to have a chat about their fav menu items, which we will try next time.
I've waited a long time for a visit here to Smith & Daughters, it was well worth it! Magnificent food, friendly staff and an amazing dining space. Can't wait to revisit!
As always, amazing skills in delivering flavours and textures, makes me think I should have turned Vegan years ago. Well done to the whole team once again.
This restaurant blows me away every time I go - the menu is amazing, the food is devine, the service is always timely, friendly and warm.
As a first time visitor, I really enjoyed the great vegan food and the atmosphere. The downside was that the volume of the music was far too high and we had to really raise our voices during our conversation, which was a pity and not what you'd expect at lunchtime.
Perfection,Perfection,Perfection,Perfection,Perfection,Perfection,Perfection,Perfection,Perfection,Perfection,Perfection,Perfection,Perfection,Perfection,Perfection,Perfection,Perfection, Everything perfection.
Fantastic vegan menu with friendly service. Looks like a great bar for arvo/evening occasions. Slightly pricey but well worth it.
food excellent décor good.
Music was way way to loud to hear people talk at my table. Yes I am 45 but I own and DJ most of the 80's tracks you were playing. it was too loud to enjoy the occasion.
I'd wind back the ferocious warnings in your booking process about losing table if you arrive 15 mins late when we then had to mill around for 25 mins when table not ready standing in entrance with numerous others and inadequate room for pre dinner drinks either stand up at table or sit down.
That vodka red sauce + meatballs pasta dish. Farrrrrrrrrk.
Although I am only a new patron of Smith that is, I've seen the transformation of the Inner North of Melbourne by S they were especially helpful by apprising us of what was no longer available before we ordered. I particularly appreciate that the S&D staff always do their best to be polite and helpful regardless of how busy they are (which seems to be all of the time due to the popularity of the food!). When my brother-in-law asked how my vegetarian/vegan diet is going, I explained, "It is not mere meat-eating that is the main issue in 2018, but rather the inordinate consumption of meat. At present, it is not about perfection or judgment, but just about trying." Anyhow, I'm not trying to be smug, but S&D have changed Melbourne and are still changing the world—in an uncontrollable, uncertain world, of this I can be sure. I've no vested interest in S&D—monetary, personal, or familial—but I've only respect & gratitude to convey to all involved.
Love Smith and Daughters , we live in SA so don’t get to go there very often but we are always glad we did , love the atmosphere , the staff are always super friendly , food is great and all vegan of course 😃went for lunch after running the Melbourne half marathon
Look the food was fine but as a non Vegan just know that Smith and Daughters is only really good for Level 7-10 vegans IE.. Those who are vegan pros and have been for a while as there really is limited options for those who are dipping their toe in veganism / non vegans dining with vegans. The food is just very fussy and fancy when sometimes you just want chill brunch.
The service was kinda rubbish because NONE OF YOU COMMUNICATE!!!! We got asked if we had ordered drinks 5 times..... That is not looking after us and being attentive that is downright poor service, annoying and frankly very unprofessional.
Probably won't be back until next year for vegan sister in laws birthday again.
I can honestly say that this is the most amazing restaurant ever. My meat eating family members loved every dish on offer. We had a group of 8 so had the Feast Me menu everybody left highly satisfied and with a full belly. This place is so cool and hip and where it's at... Will definitely be back. Please open a Smith and Daughters in Geelong and the Surfcoast soon.
It’s always just 1000000000/10
Never anything but exceptional
