Beautiful food in an excellent setting. Can be noisy on a Saturday night with large groups.
The staff were excellent and the service was amazing.

Amazing food. Great location. I arranged a surprise weekend in London for my partners 21st and having lunch here was definitely a highlight of the trip. Even though non of the staff were aware it was his birthday it felt like they did they were all extremely accommodating and so friendly and the food was incredible.

The food is obviously very good, but the overall experience is overrated. At a pricepoint perhaps 30% lower, it owuld get 5 stars. The service, however, is exceptional. The waiters are super sharp and the food arrives very quickly after ordering. All-in a good experience but not good value for money.

Beautiful food and fantastic service from our waiter Juann. Went for my husbands birthday after being recommended and did not disappoint. Service was attentive but not excessive and food was cooked to perfection. Will definitely go back again.

Our first visit and we weren’t disappointed! The service was excellent and our wait staff were delightful. The set menu was outstanding and great value. Wine on the expensive side but a great selection. All in all a great experience howeverour only complaint has to be whilst we were given a river view table we were seated between two tables of 12 businessmen who were extremely noisy. We were a party of four and found it difficult to hold a conversation.

A beautiful venue where the seafood is the center of attention. All of the tables on the top level have a great view over the Thames. Pricey but worth it. An excellent option for a special occasion.

The food, wines and service were all excellent, as in our previous visits. My only slight discomfort was that we were st a table so close to the (excellent) pianist that the volume of the music made conversation a bit difficult. This minor quibble would not deter us from many future visits!

Birthday lunch for hubby. Had set lunch menu which was great value. Hubby had classic prawn cocktail followed by skate with amazing triple cooked chips and finished with strawberries. I had tempura tiger prawn followed by Cornish plaice and finished with steamed ginger pudding. Food was excellent, service was attentive, but not obtrusive. We had a table with a view, which was great. Excellent wine list and some great value wines. Would definitely recommend; not cheap but worth very penny

We had a very nice diner at Smiths in Wapping. The food was excellent but what really stood out was the waiting staff. All the gentlemen that served us were very good at their jobs and gave us excellent food and wine recommendations.
The only reason I did not give a five star review was because of the staff at the front desk. The lady and gentleman where disinterested and unfriendly. No nice welcoming greeting and we were sternly informed we had 2 hours to finish the diner before we had to leave our table for the next guests. Our coats were picked up with an audible sigh. When the coats were returned they were thrusted into the hands of my disabled mother in law who struggles to stand let alone hold four coats. With the experience inside the restaurant being outstanding this was very weird. But again, do go for the food and the experience while dining!

First time at the Wapping restaurant, having been to the one in Ongar before and enjoyed it. I seriously recommend the seafood soup as a starter. Very, very good staff and a relaxed atmosphere.
