    Had a great night here for a birthday meal. Fantastic table was chosen for us too over looking the Shard & Tower Bridge. Noise level was a little loud though but wasn't really a problem. Thanks Smiths we will return.

    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)!

    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

    Had a lovely Valentine’s Day meal. Wasn’t left hungry at all and the food was up to par. Our waiter was amazing and made the experience much better. they were very accommodating to us arriving late. Would like to come back and try some of their other dishes as personally felt that the Valentine’s Day menu wasn’t reflective of their greatest flavours. cocktails were just as expensive as the meal!! other than that, would definitely recommend. 8/10

    We have had several friends recommend Smiths in Wapping and so booked for lunch time. We were sat overlooking Tower Bridge so the view was stunning. The service was excellent, staff were attentive but not overbearing. The food was outstanding. We will be back.
