The food was all very good however the gentleman on front of house was swearing and shouting at his staff like an episode of Fawlty Towers. It didnt make for a pleasant experience and the staff had to apologise to the diners for his behavior twice.

Nice restaurant, nice view, perfect very tasty and fresh food. Service was good as well till the end of our dinner. The manager made a big mistake with our bill, lucky I checked it before make a payment. They add to the bill some drinks which we didn't ordered. With this drinks our bill was £50-60 higher than supposed to be. But when I showed this to the Manager, he said sorry and changed it. So at the end we paid the actual bill. Except this, everything was fine. I hope it will not happen again. So, what I can say to the future visitors, double check your bill,before paying.

We booked lunch for 3 people and arrived early. We were sat at the bar and ordered drinks and within minutes the maître D came to collect us to take us to a table right in front of the window with superb views of the Thames and Shard. We knew we were going to order from the set lunch menu as it was superb value for money at £23.50 for 2 courses and £28.50 for 3 courses. There isn't many places where you get 8 choices of starters and main courses to choose from. We knew Smiths was renowned for its fish so to have had anything else would not have made sense and we weren't disappointed. The peppered mackerel fillets were divine, perfectly cooked and accompanied with a really light horseradish cream, peppercorn sauce and watercress. The homemade fish cake and homemade tartare sauce were also excellent as were the Tempura tiger prawns. My only slight criticism at this point was that it said it was served with an Asian salad but as the dish was hot it was more like a stir fry than salad. Moving on to the main courses, what value for money!!! I had a whole Cornish plaice with seafood butter and brown shrimps. Absolutely delicious and huge! The seabass dish came with 3 fillets and 2 tiger prawns and again the herb crusted haddock was a really good portion size. You were allowed to choose one side dish ( you wouldn't have wanted any more! ). The hand cut chips were amazing and the seasonal veg was Romanesco cauliflower, fine beans and carrots which actually tasted like a carrot! There was no way we were going to fit in dessert, mainly because we were full and also on a time limit to get to the theatre.
Smiths was recommended to us and I would thoroughly recommend it to others. It was full, busy and buzzing.

Never fails to deliver. Have been here many times and each time is as good as the last. Calimari, sea bass and salmon with hollandaise were all superb.

The most comprehensive seafood menu I have seen. A couple of friends wanted to go out for a catch up and lunch. I had only been to this restaurant once for a Christmas do, so thought I would give it a try. Fantastic food, wine and service, would recommend to any seafood lover. Enjoy, we did.

I have visited Smiths at wapping on several occasions and have never been disappointed. The food, service and ambience are perfect and the set lunch menu, which is extensive, is fantastic value for money. The restaurant is set alongside the Thames and is perfectly located for a walk to St Katherine’s Dock. I highly recommend a visit to this jewel!

Smiths never fails to impress us!
I was slightly disappointed by the fact they forgot to mention it was my husbands birthday (even though I included in the request comments before booking). But my husband loves Smiths so I don’t think he would have noticed!

Lovely setting right on the Thames overlooking Tower Bridge. This restaurant has a nice ambience - relaxed but still make a fuss of you in a good way. Food was absolutely delicious, so worth paying extra. Would recommend for a special occasion.

Weren’t offered the set lunch time meal which we noticed on the billboard on the way out.

Great setting, ambience and attentive service. All of the ingredients, cuts of fish were excellent as was most if the cooking.
However the particularly fine looking piece of halibut Mrs W had was overcooked which she didn't mention, being a typical British diner. I only realised when she said she had eaten most but not all of it and I tasted it. I hope this was a one off as my mother in law loves the place and we will be returning.

We love everything about this restaurant, the waiters are always so courteous and cheerful the food is always excellent it has a very good choice of beers as well as wine and the whole ambience is lovely. It was an extremely hot day when we went for lunch but the restaurant was lovely and cool. As we sat looking out on the Thames watching the boats go up and down as well as a spectacular view of the Shard and Tower Bridge it gave us such a great sense of well being, we can't wait to go back.

Can't fault the food, service or view over the Thames but our was a business dinner with overseas visitors and the unnecessarily loud piano and singing made conversation difficult, back to lunches from now on.

Once again a very pleasant dining experience whereby the staff were polite, courteous and extremely attentive. All our needs were met in impeccable fashion which left us both stating how professional the service was and impeccable the staff were.

A must visit place for seafood fans as you will be more than satisfied with the quality and sumptuousness of the food.

Smiths was my favourite restaurant and I had such a disappointing experience this time. My boyfriend was extremely well looked after, continuously asked if he needed another drink and how he’s food was. I was completely ignored and had 1 glass of wine to his 6 beers. I paid for dinner and was ignored when leaving the restaurant by all the staff I walked past and yet they all said ThankYou and Good evening to him.
Treat your customers as equals and look after everyone dining with you. Not just the men.
