Smith Bros. Steakhouse Tavern
A favourite for small family celebrations over the years. Haven't been as often in the last year or so, but that had nothing to do with Smith Bros themselves. Anyways, after an attempted reservation at a nearby Keg didn't pan out, we decided to return to Smith Bros for my dad's birthday. Quickly we were reminded of why we enjoy this place so much. The food was as good as ever. My mother inhaled her beloved warm boules of sourdough bread and whipped butter. Our mains - my dad had the rib eye, my mom the filet mignon and I had the salmon - all cooked just right. We made our meals complete by adding grilled shrimp and full sides of pan fried mushrooms and steamed broccoli to share. Stuffed from our meals, we finished with coffee/cappuccinos. Another great dining experience at Smith Bros from start to finish.
Food was excellent, as was the service! This was our third time visiting and have not been disappointed. Great restaurant!!!
WOW! Everything was perfect. From the app to dessert, the food was fantastic. Melt in your mouth tenderloin, the perfect potato side and the creme brule was to die for. The service and meal were "old style steakhouse" but the atmosphere was lively, not "stuffy".
We were nearly taken to a table that was not clean and were asked to wait a bit longer for a clean table. One of the steaks was overcooked but the manager offered to replace it however it would take some time. The person who ordered the steak said it was okay and didn’t want another steak since the one she ordered would be wasted. The manager instead took half price off of the steak price.
Overall it was still a great experience and would definitely go back again. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to family & friends.
We have enjoyed meals at Smiths many times, food always good as is the service. On the dark side though, with some areas needing a flashlight to read the menu.
Major downside are the noise levels, last Saturday the place was packed and due to all the hard surfaces and lack of absorption it was difficult to hold a conversation between the four people at our table. In the future will plan to go when not so busy, but will return.
I had a problem with my steak (Seafood Steak ordered). The kitchen couldn't seem to cook a Medium steak. All our 7 oz steaks were undercooked, however, I was the only one who stated the problem. It took 2 returns and in the end I just accepted it. I also couldn't believe they just put my previously cut steak, with seafood sauce, back on the flame. The final steak I received had cooked seafood sauce which didn't make for a pleasant taste. I know it was my previous steak as there was the previous testing cut still there.
I was offered a soup to give me something to eat while everyone else was eating. Needless to say, once I did get the final steak, everyone was watching me eat.
I have been here several times and it has always been excellent. This is why I recommended it to the out of country visitors that came with me. I found this experience very disappointing, especially for $35!
Our server was excellent. It was a very pleasant experience due to his professionalism, smile and attention to detail.
i'm a regular love their prime rib platter. would recoomend
Always a good meal and great service. I like the fact that the restaurant manager greets every table and asks how everything is.
Smith Bros has good service and good food at a reasonable price. The menu is just right, without too many selections, but having something for everyone.
Does not disappoint.
It's always good. I've eaten here many times and I've never been disappointed.
Exceeded my expectations. Nice, comfortable atmosphere. Everything was great!
Food quality was ok... but the presentation was not impressive. the plate did not look full to me, so i didnt feel that I was getting good value for my money. I was still hungry after lunch
Had to beg the server for a coffee refill
Come to Smith Bros quite often and have always had great food, great service and left happy!
Only a few restaurants in Toronto offer Yorkshire pudding and they are one of them. They are big and fluffy and do not disappoint!
The food is always delicious and the service attentive.
Lighting is too dim. Can't even read menu. We had to use light from phones
We enjoyed the value of the complete dinner. The salad and bread were ample and the steak was tasty. I ordered my steak medium and it seemed to me it could have been a little more tender. Perhaps I should have ordered it medium rare instead. The garlic mashed potato was excellent and the sauce/gravy was very tasty. My wife really enjoyed her chicken marsala. The cheesecake desert was tasty and the coffee was very good. The option of a flight of beers was great. The service was good as the food came promptly and our server was very friendly. Glad we went and would go again.
The food was delicious and the service was great! I
Asked for medium, got medium rare.
Waiter good; but too busy, had to wait on drink order and bill
Table, we felt the draft of the front door.
Has potential, we will go back.
Shrimp appetizers were amazing, NY steak was tender. Be great to have couple of buns to start off instead of one.
I had the NY striploin, my partner the filet mignon - both excellent, perfectly cooked as ordered. Our waitress was awesome as well. Mind you I made a reservation so my table was ready once we got there.
Best service we had had since we gave been coming here since you opened
They actually serve only the steak and potatoes maybe a little green would be nice.
Went on Valentine Day and had a delicious dinner with many different beer selection。The beer sampler is an excellent choice for tasting. Service was excellent. We were in one of the dinning room so the noise level was low and very relaxing.
The food is really good, when I order steak, it's done the way I order it. All I can say, is the deserts are very small. This has been a constant each time I go.
Great steaks and the best beer!!! Staff are very attentive, clean place!! Would definitely recommend!
As always, this place is perfect both in service and food. I have been here about 27 times so obviously I love the place.
Our server was very nice and checked up on us regularly.
Overall the starter and entree were fantastic. I found the desserts a little lacking. That being said, I would definitely come back
Disappointed no vegetables came with the steak meal irrespective whether u want fries, mash potatoes.. for the price u are charging!
Overall good experience, however, both salads ordered were lacking dressing. I don’t particularly like a lot of dressing and usually ask for dressing on the side. In the past the salad at Smith Bros I haven’t had to do that. I will in future though.
What a fabulous night. Was so happy with this dinner. We were celebrating my husband and daughters birthday. They put us at a great table that was roomy and a room that was a bit quieter. Dinner was fabulous, excellent flavour and quality. We didn't feel rushed and were at to enjoy our celebration and opened presents, without feeling rushed. The birthday dessert was huge and greatly appreciated and yummy. The whole family loved it and had a great time. Highly recommend this place. Excellent experience, great food and value!!
Great experience again at Smith Bros. The steak was prepared excellently and the reservation and seating was perfect for my dinner meeting. The service during dinner was very prompt and quick and the price was fair for a good steak restaurant.
Had the avocado/goat cheese burger.
Definitely needed to cut it in half.
Huge portions of fries followed!
Good value for money. Service was great.no rushing you through the meal.
It was a great evening, the food was good. We were seated right away even though we were early from our reservation. My only feedback is that the main course came early while we were still having our appetizers. We felt that it was a bit of a rush to serve our food. We’ve been to this place so many times and never had that issue before. Overall it was a great dinner. They gave us ice cream to compensate our feedback and that was a good gesture.
Always a great meal, great food and great service. Looking forward to going back soon!!!
Smith Brothers never disappoints, another excellent meal! Our request for a quiet table along the back wall was quickly accommodated. Everything was fresh and cooked nicely...we did have a request for slightly more done on our Prime Rib platter, which was promptly and perfectly looked after by our server & manager...
Wine was reasonably priced and excellent.
Steaks nicely aged, flavourful and cooked precisely as ordered.
We love the house salad with Dijon vinaigrette.
Highly recommended as always, we will be back.
The New York steak was outstanding. My husband couldn’t stop talking about how yummy it was. I got the Mussels (appetizers) and for some reason, my stomach didn’t handle that very well. Near the end of the meal, I was getting really bad cramps that lasted until about 11am the next day. I have been here about 6x and we’ve never ever been disappointed with the food, service.
Giving it a 4/5 because I think it may just have been 1) My lactose/dairy intolerance that I didn’t mention to the Restaurant. Not their fault. 2) When I got my mussels, they didn’t come out piping hot. It was rather luke-warm coming to our table. 3) My pains from maybe a combo of having a bit of butter on my bread and the mussels.
Please reduce the noise level. Market Place on CBC had a review of eating places with a high noise level and correcting it increased their attendance and profits.
