    Smiths is my favourite restaurant in London. The food is excellent and so is the service. Have eaten here so many times and will continue to do so. Wonderful view too. I last eat there on the 29/02/24 and received excellent service from a Mauritian waiter, unfortunately didn’t get his name but he’s delivered great service and humour.

    I have dined at Smith’s many times and took my brother and his partner there for the first time. They loved it. We had lunch from the set menu - two courses because starter and main course enough - followed by coffee. We washed it down with two bottles of excellent South African Chenin blanc. So .. prawn cocktail, cod brandade and two smoked salmon pate. Two of us had the calves liver, one the hake Arnold Bennett and one the Cornish plaice with crab butter. Two mixed veg, one chips and one new pots. It was all delicious and, as usual, the service was exemplary. Apart from the fab food we had a lovely round table with a great view of the river/Tower Bridge. I plan to return very soon. My favourite London restaurant.

    Lovely evening. Accommodating as we were half an hour late due to traffic issues over Tower Bridge. Despite this didn’t feel particularly rushed. Extensive choice on the menu so stuck with the specials but all sounded delicious. Staff friendly and helpful.

    Dined here for a belated birthday celebration - not that I mentioned this in the booking, as I didn't want a big fuss! Some of us arrived 15 mins late due to problems with the traffic (one of the tunnels closed) but greeting staff made us welcome, while reminding us that we would still have to leave on time (8pm). Choice of food, plus the quality, were excellent - and the serving staff were charming and efficient. The venue had spectacular views over Tower Bridge/ the river, and the bridge obliged us by opening - only the second time I've seen this happen in 40 years of living in London! Staff must have overheard some of our conversation, as I was served (completely unexpectedly) a small birthday pudding with a candle in it - a nice surprise. We stayed on until 8. 30, with no push from the waiting staff to move us out. Excellent evening - would recommend (although not cheap - bring your credit card)!

    Food and service were good. Slight disappointment that our request for a table near the window was disregarded until we raised the issue. Similarly, birthday was mentioned at welcome desk when we arrived, but nothing thereafter. Would be less of an issue had I not noticed as we left that another diner had just received a plate with a birthday message in chocolate around the edge of her plate.

    A wonderful place to eat for a special occasion. Food and service was fantastic with views of the river and Tower Bridge. My only moans were the creme brulee was cold. I much prefer it served straight after melting the sugar so it is warm. Also it would be good if Smiths offered a house wine at a lower price point for those on a modest budget. It was our anniversary and we were made to feel special and gave us a quiet table. A lovely evening in a romantic setting.

    I had a great bday lunch at Smiths, the food was amazing and the service great. A bit expensive, but one needs a threat every now and then. P.S. if you do not want to have a song by the waiters and customers in the restaurant, do not put in your booking that it is a special occasion even if you do in notes...

    As always an outstanding dinner what I don’t understand is we arrive early to have a couple of drinks in the bar we were asked once if we would like to go early to our table and we declined. We were then asked again and really in hindsight bribed to going through early as they said we have a window table with view they agreed to not to rush us by taking our order but I keep thinking about it and it has annoyed me somewhat it wasn’t even busy and the bar was quiet I just don’t get it so I’m going to email them and ask them
