This is a lovely restaurant in a quiet Riverside location in Wapping.

Views of Tower Bridge, great service and excellent food more than justify the slightly higher price tag. Try it for lunch. You’ll want to come back for dinner.

Beautiful food and great staff. Had a table at 6.15 on a Friday, pleasantly surprised to find plenty of empty tables. Views of London from our table were superb with the British weather behaving!

We arrived about 20 minutes early and was shown to a table for 2 one facing the wall. Considering we had booked a table 2 months in advance and it I mentioned it was a special occasion we were not very pleased, I explained to them that we would have liked a window table but they are for four people, eventually we were given a better table but felt a bit let down that we had to request this and management had to approve it. The staff, the food, the ambiance and the service were very good and we would definitely recommend this restaurant to our family and friends.

We really enjoy visiting Smiths particularly for the fish - outstanding! Just not so easy to get to as we are based in Shad Thames and you have to time the dash across Tower Bridge so as not to coincide with the bridge opening!!!

My wife and I have been to Smiths several times and took my brother and sister in law for their first visit .
Unfortunately on arrival my brother had had an accident to his arm whilst en route and needed a bandage . The staff were absolutely excellent and immediately gave bandage and tape to repair the damage and my brother was able to relax and enjoy his lunch. Many thanks to the staff for their attention. The food was absolutely fabulous and my brother had already rebooked a further visit.

We ate on a Wednesday when the set menu is available. There was a wide choice. As always the service was just right - sometimes you don't even notice your water being topped up. All of our dishes were excellent - especially the tandoori salmon which was cooked to perfection.

With the view of the Thames and London Bridge we rate Smith's as out No 1 Restaurant.

An out of the way location on the river, with some good views. A long established sea food restaurant that maintains high standards. Not the cheapest in the world and a surplus of 'suits' at lunchtime. Always find it weird that everybody knows its a fishy place - and has a steak!

Pleasantly understated food which was a throw back to a more comfort meal era, and away from chi chi small plates often encountered today. A river view was promised and delivered. The service was fine and it was possible to
A have a laugh over the odd minor mishap (two saltcellars but no pepper on the table). It was Sunday Lunchtime and the full room was very noisy. Indeed it was only on leaving that we discovered there was a pianist fighting a losing battle with the decibels. The wine list was small, and not unreasonably priced. Although spirits were available there were no liqueurs on offer so I had Lagavulin. Fine but not what I prefer with my double- espresso.
A return visit is planned.

Smiths was a beautiful restaurant, the staff and food was amazing!
The only thing that let it down was that I was promised a birthday cake and it was never brought out and I couldn’t ask because it was supposed to be a surprise.

All four of us that dined for the third time at smiths we were welcomed warmly ,seated with a great view and totally spoiled by the service ,waiting staff are so very efficient polite and attentive.
The food as always was fantastic the Hake was pure perfection desert as always pure delight what’s more though is the pianist played Julie London and some prodigy riffs then elbow !
We didn’t stop smiling the only downside was leaving .
Big thanks to kitchen and waiting staff keep doing what you’re excellent at .
