Excellent service, amazing food and a great atmosphere, great for a special occasion or just because you fancy a treat!
Wonderful food as usual
We tried a second visit after a very bad first visit and must say that this time we were extremely impressed. Food was excellent as was the service. Only criticism is about how noisy it can be, especially with a table of very screechy young ladies nearby! There appears to be no sound absorbing measures in place. Other than that it would be the perfect high class restaurant!
Lovely as always! Food was great, service was spot on and very friendly.
lovely evening meal for paren't anniversary on a Saturday night, early sitting, but already had a good atmosphere and was already busy! Food was amazing, and service was excellent. Got a bit too noisy towards the end of the evening but nothing too bad. Slight downside were the tables were quite closer together where we were sitting and could hear the next tables conversation!
I visited smiths in wapping in August and enjoyed it so much, I thought I would try Ingar which is a completely different experience, unfortunately I thought I would be getting the same experience which was not the case-and such a shame. The staff were too young and too inexperienced, it has marred my view. However I will be returning to Smiths at Wapping.
Very pleasant restaurant with good food and good service.
Outstanding in every aspect. Couldn’t have asked for a better meal/evening. Couldn’t moan at the price either as it was worth every penny
This never fails time after time the food the service amazing been coming to Smiths for years
Loved it. Very nice. Very attentive. Good food. Great settings.
Perfect place for an anniversary dinner! Loved it!
Went to Smith's for my husband's birthday. Food was lovely. They made an extra as it was my husband's birthday. Admit only get to go if it's a celebration. Lovely
I found the food and environment pleasant.
That being said for what you’re paying at this restaurant I think you’re paying more for the reputation it has for wealthy people going there to dine rather than the actual fantastic food ... the food vs value wasn’t great in my opinion
Food was excellant and the service superb. Ongar is so lucky to have such a good fish restaurant within the village.
Excellent meal, great friendly service as always.
Would definitely recommend, good atmosphere
we had a great night and would recommend to anyone who like dish
I had been looking forward to visiting Smiths for a long time and heard excellent reviews from several people that had eaten there. The food was overpriced, overcooked and we found the service to be poor too. Would never visit the restaurant again. Loch Fyne is a far better fish restaurant. Save money and eat there instead
Wecomed into a very stylish ambience. Staff were attentive from the onset and we were allocated a lovely corner table. Good selection of wines and very well cooked food. We never needed to ask for anything. As this was a birthday treat for my wife it was an excellent choice and a very pleasurable evenimg
Fabulous food, fantastic staff and we had such a lovely time. Highly recommend
Excellent service, good wines, good quality seafood.
Had a lovely meal for my partners burthday. Delicious food and very friendly, helpful staff.
Smiths was highly recommended and we enjoyed every minute, this was a present from our daughters and we will definitely be back, food was fantastic and the service was exceptional, thank you
The menu is extensive and varied. The descriptions are clear and concise. The food is exceptionally tasty and well presented. Staff are polite and make you feel at ease. If unsure about what you want to eat they are very good at offering suggestions.
Great service , great food . As always ;) . Good quality is very good and well priced
I had higher expections of the service and food considering the price. The venue itself was pleasant enough which is probably the only good thing I have to say. I found the service to be inattentive- it took us 10 minutes to be able to catch someone’s eye to get the bill. The food was so-so. The starters were nice but the mains were poor. £28 for a small piece of over cooked turbot which they couldn’t even bother descaling is abominable.
Amazing as ever never fails to come up trumps great food great service
Excellent meal with superb service - Smiths never fails to deliver on any occasion
Everything was outstanding ! Avacado Crab Prawn Starter,Surf and Turf (with Lobster) Main,Strawberry Pavlova Dessert and the BEST Pornstar Martini’s ! Will most definently be returning and looking forward to trying the Set Menu which if I remember rightly is £31.50 for 3 courses !
Had a lovely experience very romantic for my boyfriends birthday. Quite pricey but the food quality is 10/10.
Great food, great cocktails, great service... great restaurant
Great food and service. I was however very disappointed on one point. They were told that this was my wife and my anniversary and thought that they would make it special for us but they forgot to do this. They did apologise but didn't do anything. Other groups who were celebrating things there had things done for them which made their time special on the same evening, so felt rather left out and disappointed.
This is my favourite restaurant outside of London and have been coming here for over 20 years. The food is always amazing and the staff are now equal , which was not always the case. If you have not tried this restaurant you really should even if you have to travel a fair distance. Fish is their specialty but quality of the meat is equally good. You have a choice most evenings or lunchtimes of a set menu or a- la- carte. Either way it’s great value for money.
Excellent lunch time meal, yet again. The service, food and generally feel of the place were all absolutely excellent. Plenty of selection with food choices all cooked to perfection
Fantastic, brilliant venue warm welcoming polite staff and food was Magnificent.
I went to Smiths in Ongar with my boyfriend for our anniversary and we had a great time. The food was high quality and very tasty. We were also both really impressed with the service as the waiters/waitresses were very attentive and when our table was not immediately ready we were given a nice table in the bar upstairs. The Mojitos were amazing too!
Would highly recommend.

This time it was excellent. I would recommend this and the food was lovely. Sometimes the service a little slow. Three courses £31.50 Tuesday to Friday evening and lunch £28
