Wonderful meal on a lovely sunny evening in London. Very pleased we asked for a different table on arrival as hubby would have been looking at a wall all evening - staff very accommodating which ensured my birthday meal was enjoyable

Although we weren't by the window, we were seated. On a corner with a view towards the river and neither of us had to look at a wall. The food was excellent, I chose the marinated herring fillets with potato salad which was very tasty, followed by gurnard which isn't often on menus but a favoutite of mine and it didn't disappoint. The creme brulee rounded off a lovely meal for me. My husband chose the prawns in a chilli sauce to start, followed by hake (the Smith's speciality) which he said was delicious. The tart tatin to finish was very a generous size and also delicious. It was the first real sunny and warm day of the year and being by the river made the whole experience delightful.

Nice place with an air or luxury, however the menu on a sat eve wasn't extensive and I felt disappointed that the menu I'd seen online was not available.

The fish was nice but not amazing considering the price and i felt I would have preferred a complete meal experience rather than having to choose my own accomplements.

Cocktails were quite expensive and I felt that there was not much choice.

Overall a nice place with nice food but not anything amazing.

Smith's Delivers Yet Again

This was our second visit to Smith's in 4 months. Once again we were blown away with the service and the quality of the food. The food is out of this world and the staff are very attentive but not overbearing. I cannot praise Smith's highly enough. It is clear why it is a very popular venue. Can't wait to return.

Absolutely delicious food. Reluctantly we passed on dessert as we were full from the first two courses. We've made a note for next time! Excellent service and a lovely view from those huge windows.

We had a really lovely anniversary dinner at Smiths. At first we were told we could only have the table for one hour despite booking in advance which was very disappointing, particularly as the booking said 2 hour dining slot. But once seated we were told we could have the table as long as we wanted so we were able to have a nice relaxed dinner. The food and service were great, and it’s a lovely setting with fab views even if you’re not sitting directly in the windows. We chose from the set menu which had plenty of choice and was good value for money. We would definitely come here again.
I would only say that if the dining time allowed is going to change from 2 hours to 1 hour that this should be stressed well in advance as we definitely would not have been able to get through all our courses in just an hour!

What a great place to celebrate my 60th birthday. From the moment we walked in the door the service was exceptional and made us feel that little bit special.
The view was great and food was delicious and at lunchtime very good value indeed.

We had been to Smith's before and really enjoyed the location, food and ambiance. The table we were allocated on this occasion gave us an amazing view of the Thames skyline but unfortunately the evening was somewhat spoilt by a group of "cackling hens" on a nearby table. One does not expect people to be quiet and the occasional laughter is acceptable but the noise from this group was excessive in my opinion, which made conversation a little difficult.
I am somewhat surprised that the management didn't have a quiet word.

My 4th visit and the food is as good as ever - nicely presented, good sized portions and very tasty. Our starters were late in arriving, as the order had apparently "got lost"; if we hadn't chased it up we may still have been sitting there! The table wasn't cleared very well either after our first course. But I would still happily go back there, as the good outweighs the bad.

Smith of Wapping WAS my favourite restaurant.
Any special event, was spent at smiths of Wapping.
It seems unfortunately the service and quality of food has gone varsley down hill.
We had to ask 3 separate staff inclueding a matredee for a gluten free menu for my wife.
The starters arrived before the drinks we had ordered.
The restaurant was extremely busy. But that’s not any excuse. Every time I’ve been to smiths every table has always been full. I personally feel the quality of staff has dropped.
It pains me to write this bad review. Maybe I’ll keep to Smiths in ongar.

Always enjoy going the Smiths, I'm not a regular but this is my third visit in two years, we went for family meal to celebrate my wife's birthday, got a table by the window, a first. Our starters were very good, would have liked a slightly larger helping of the soft shell crab, my daughter had prawns for her main course which looked and tasted amazing.

Our waitress was from Puglia and was excellent, attentive without being intrusive and willing to engage in conversation and help me with my wine choices
