Had a superb evening with friends there. The food was excellent, service was impeccable and ambience was fantastic. Definitely will be back!
I booked this restaurant based on previous reviews and it didn't disappoint . The service was first class , food was excellent . It was my wife's birthday and I mentioned it to the waiter and he brought out a small cake with a candle in it on a decorated plate with happy birthday on it which was a nice touch. Will certainly be going there again.
Good food, good wine, attentive service.....price typical for area (quite expensive)
As usual a great occasion, staff were very efficient and helpful I would have given top marks unfortunately one off our diners ended up with rubbery chicken and that was a shame as all the rest of us had very good meals.
With definitely book again
Wine was watered right down with loads of ice, steak which was meant to be medium rare was very very chewy .. when we got the bill there was an”OPTIONAL SERVICE CHARGE” which we didn’t want to pay so we paid the amount before the “OPTIONAL SERVICE CHARGE” was added the manager then came over very rude! And abit aggressive trying to say we didn’t pay the VAT .. but when I explained it clearly says “OPTIONAL SERVICE CHARGE” he didn’t like it .. we didn’t feel we got the best service so wasn’t going to pay that .. wouldn’t return !
We had an early Saturday evening booking. We felt very rushed. The starter arrived before we’d finished our very expensive gin and tonics. We then had to find a waitress to get our wine poured. When the main course arrived it had clearly been kept warm for a long time as it was a bit dry on the top and somewhat over cooked. We had coffee and left at least 15 minutes before the end of the 2 hour window that we’d agreed to. This is really excellent restaurant normally but don’t go early unless you want fast food.
Superb food and very professional staff.
Fantastic experience. Would definitely recommend this restaurant
One of the best dinners of my life and definitely the best fish of my life (got one of their specials with a white parmesan sauce). It's located in more of a (nice) residential area but only a 10 min walk from London Bridge. The service was absolutely amazing - from the cloak room to each and every waiter, who really worked like a team and kept their eye on you. Of course not the cheapest place but we definitely got even more than what we paid for, as even the servings were much bigger than expected (we could barely finish them).
Very good service and food would recommend
Have been here on many occasions and can never fault the service and food. I had a brilliant birthday and a great lunch
Superb service, great food will definitely be going back.
Service amazing as always, food outstanding, all areas exceeds expectations.
Impeccable service as always and food was divine. Great place to celebrate my parents anniversary
Excellent set menu at bargain price. Great service, very good food and fantastic views. What’s not to like?
We chose the set menu, which was execellent and ave a wide choice. The wine also was good vslue for money. We enjoyed our visit and made our wedding anniversary lunch special.
They were very rude and turned the lights on at 10;45 while we were still at the table with our guests then made us feel very uncomfortable so we left. The bill was £250 for 4 people and I didn’t expect to be rushed out without any explanation
Absolutely lovely evening as always. Best river view restaurant in London by far.
The food and service was excellent. The staff were friendly and accommodating. I requested a table by the window as it was a retirement dinner and we had a lovely river view. Would definately go again. The Set menu was very good value.
Chose Smiths as a special for Canadian friends who were staying in Holland Park. We used the river boat from Westminster as part of their London experienced. We were not disappointed with the restaurant , Our choice from all of London .
A great balance of excellent service and reliably excellent food. If you love fish - although there are some great alternative options on the menu - and appreciate a lovely city viewpoint you will not be disappointed. White table cloths, enough space for comfort and background piano make this place extremely pleasant but it is not stuffy. Very relaxing experience. Amazing oysters!
It was my first time at Smiths, overall I really enjoyed it but there was a group of around 10 people who were getting louder and louder with every drink which was a shame as the two of us were struggling to hear each other. As were the couple sat next to us who eventually asked the waiter if they could be asked to keep it down as it was ruining their dinner. Which was a valid point. I just wished management would have taken it upon themselves to ask them to quieten down before a complaint had to be made would have made the experience much more pleasurable.
We love Smiths and have been many times. Unfortunately the service was not up to its usual standard. We were a party of 4 and 3 hot starters appeared at once and then we all had to wait for a good few minutes for the last starter a cold prawn cocktail to be served!!! Then at desert time 3 of us had finished but the 4th person had not and our 3 dishes were removed before she had finished. Just not the service we expect at Smiths
Only thing was I booked this for boyfriends birthday and did advise this but this was not recognised on the night they didn’t say happy birthday and when I came for my nans birthday a few weeks ago she was well looked after.
Smith’s was superb. The service was impeccable. The fish was very fresh and well prepared. Wonderful restaurant and reasonably priced.
Lovely Monday evening meal. We dined early which was an advantage as we had a fabulous view of the sunset behind Tower bridge from our table facing the waterfront. Perfect atmosphere- not too busy. Waiters were very attentive and gave excellent service. They even picked up it was my husbands birthday - even though I hadn’t said and asked me if he would like a personal cake. Love to visit again soon.
Enjoy every visit...good place for date or night out
We have been to this restaurant many times but this time was not a good experience. We arrivEd early and was prepared to have drinks in the bar to wait for a table but they insisted on giving us a table which was most unsuitable. We were shown 2 which were both unsuitable. We will not be going again as we did not like their attitude ,it's not as though the food is cheap albeit worth every penny. Very bad attitude from manager also.
Amazing food & a lovely restaurant, would definitely recommend.
Gabor was a fantastic waiter and added to the fabulous experience of a great evening!
Our most favourite restaurant they never forget us and thoroughly look after us. Love this place food outstanding staff are the best. Such a well organised team
We went on a Saturday night and it was heaving! However the food and service were outstanding as usual. We will go back to having mid week or Sunday lunch though as it was far too noisy for us.
Another great meal at Smiths in Wapping. Excellent fish as usual, great table by the window for a spectacular view of Tower Bridge.
Had really great time, wonderful food just a bit too much of it!
great food in a great location with attentive but not overbearing service.
Thankyou I booked for 10 we were a 2012 Olympic Gamesmaker Reunion, I have used Ongar quite a few times so I knew this was going to be good, none of my Group were disappointed ,they all enjoyed their Meal and are still going on about . i knew I made the right choice Thankyou and the service was Amazing. We will be back .. Regards Rosemary Head..
The most impeccable service and the most delicious Cornish fish - all from the lunch menu deal which is fantastic value for money!
Simply amazing! The food, service, ambiance & a fantastic view of London.
We live in Switzerland and been going to Smiths for several years when in London - and always look forward to our evening at Smiths - excellent , food wine and service .
They have maintained a constantly high standard.
Always a pleasure to return to Smiths. Consistently excellent in every respect.
5* every time!
What an amazing meal and atmosphere. The menu was very extensive and there was something there for all. The service was equally fantastic. Great views of Tower Bridge. Very much worth getting a taxi there.
