From walking though the door to walking out fantastic. The food was hot, fresh and full of flavour. The service was 10/10 and the ambience was very pleasant. There was 4 in our party with 1 being a non fish eater, this was not a problem as there were plenty of alternatives. Can’t wait to come back again.

This is our second visit to Smith's at Wapping, and it certainly didn't disappoint. I live less than a mile from the Ongar restaurant but the extra effort is worth it.

From the minute you walk through the door the whole experience begins and it's like stepping into a different world.

The staff are attentive but not overbearing. All our food needs are catered for. I always think the pianist is a lovely touch. And the view is stunning,no matter what time of the year you go or where you sit in the restaurant.

A real favourite of ours and hope return soon.

Excellent as always, used to go to the Ongar Smiths as staff are great there also but after a few meals there that were too noisy (loud diners) for me this is now my go to favourite restaurant. Staff are always welcoming and courteous. Kitchen staff do a fantastic job. There are lovely views of tower bridge and the shard, ambience is good also. Can’t fault it. Well done to you all.

Great birthday dinner with wonderful food all round. Just a bit of a hustle to release the table for the next sitting when my booking said nothing about times slots and we were clearly wanting an extended and relaxed family meal.

There is nothing I dislike about this restaurant. From the moment you arrive, you are taken care of. The food is always exceptional, the menu varies on each visit so menu choices are always fresh and exciting. The staff are always polite but not intrusive. The views from the restaurant overlooking the Tower of London are a delight.

This is my favourite restaurant by far - all fish dishes are amazing and the steak is beautifully cooked should you prefer a meat dish. I am so in love with this restaurant - can't wait to return.

It is worth the walk away from St Catherine’s dock to this Thames side restaurant. It is medium in size so not overwhelming and all tables have a good view. The lunchtime and evening three course offers are really good value with at least six options for each course. There was a meat and vegetarian option. The sea bass was exceptional. The wine prices were reasonable for London and you can buy by the glass. The staff were really friendly but not intrusive.

The food was of great taste and quality. Service was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
One comment though last time we visited we had a choice of 2 or 3 course set lunch. We were disappointed that this was not an option as we both find 3 courses to be too much for our appetites.

Fantastic venue, ambience, and most importantly, food! Everything was cooked to perfection and was absolutely delicious. The Tian of crab, prawns and avocado was sensational, as was the grilled Atlantic Cod. One of my fellow diners said that his Halibut was amazing and he would definitely have that again, it was so good.
The service from staff was excellent.
We cannot wait to come back again.

The food was excellent as promised. Was a bit disappointed that the complimentary dessert that was offered prior over the phone was not actually presented. Didn't want to make a scene and complain at the restaurant because it was a special night for my 3 year anniversary dinner and didn't want to upset my partner.

We had a table overlooking the river, the staff were lovely, food was excellent, one tiny complaint, water was poured as we sat down from a bottle, I would have been happy with tap water but we weren’t asked and at £8 a bottle I would rather have had another glass of wine instead!

Amazing Fish
Wonderful service.
We were lucky as a couple to have a table with a great view.Most of the tables with a close view of the river are reserved for bigger parties.But we struck it lucky.
it's not cheap but you definitely get what you pay for.Cant wait for another excuse to go back.
We have given gift vouchers to our grown up children to have a great evening there .They have
