Great Service and location, I can recoment both Onger and Wapping.

One thing being older would have like a paper menu and not just a link.

No Smart phones at the table next time.

I booked this restaurant for my mum‘s birthday, and the restaurant exceeded all of my expectations, the food was amazing, the ambience was beautiful and the customer service was best to none, outstanding. They were exceedingly accommodating to us despite being very late for our booking and really made my mum’s birthday.


If you’re looking for a really good seafood restaurant this is the spot and you won’t be disappointed! We will be back again!

Fantastic view of the Thames, service was amazing without being intrusive, superb range of fresh fish as you would expect, correct sized portions too - if anything on the large side, side dishes of potatoes and vegetables serve two. Will definitely return.

Great food and service as always, sadly the menus have been done away with which really spoils the ambience…. Surprising to see that a top class restaurant like Smiths have taken this route with digital menus which are only usually seen now in casual/pub settings.

My partner and I were celebrating a special birthday and chose Smiths as it is a restaurant we know and trust.
We enjoyed a delicious lunch with discreet but attentive service. The Lobster Thermidor was cooked to perfection and the entree did not disappoint (tempura prawns !)

We resisted dessert but finally gave in and we were rewarded with heavenly melted chocolate brownie & ice cream. The outstanding Tarte Tatin was presented on a birthday plate with a single candle. Thankfully no fuss !

It's such a wonderful place, I wish I could go every week. Sadly it is a special occasion for me as I could not afford to go regularly. Saying that I have never once been disappointed, food, staff everything without exception. It has been my birthday treat for the last 6 years and I wouldn't go anywhere else

Always enjoy Smiths at Wapping and Ongar but don't like the absence of a printed menu. Fiddling around on a small phone screen trying to see the whole menu or having to ask for the restaurant tablet spoils the experience of taking in the dishes and wine on offer.
