I have had dined at Smith's many times but on this occasion we had dinner with my mother , a late birthday celebration. As usual the staff excelled themselves and the food was at a very high level.
My Mum thoroughly enjoyed herself and she wants to return in the Autumn/Winter for a Sunday lunch.

Our third time to dine at Smiths. It is we think, a special place for special occasions, this time to celebrate a 70th birthday. See you again.

Smiths did not disappoint- their fixed price menu is great value and has a good choice too. Service was impeccable and food delicious . They also decorated my sister's desert plate with a birthday wish - nice touch . Tasty GF bread option. Does have an amazing location as well on the river.

We come to Smiths every year for our anniversary and it is always incredible. The atmosphere’s great, amazing service from the moment you arrive and the food is outstanding. All topped off with a fantastic view of Tower Bridge. Highly recommended for a special occasion of any kind whether just for two or a large group.

One of our favourite restaurants. Had lunch booked, just two of us. Very busy, but table was ready. Staff excellent and very attentive, even though it was very busy. Both had Sunday roast, one chicken & one beef. Both cooked to perfection with lovely vegetables and the best roast potatoes. The only downside, very noisy, but with a lot of big groups, this was to be expected.

As always the food is outstanding and the staff cannot do enough for you, I asked to move tables as was eating in the Wapping restaurant and wanted to look at the London views and even though they were quite busy they found us a lovely table.

Only previously been at the weekend but booked on Thursday as it was a birthday celebration
The restaurant was packed and noisy due I think to a special midweek meal deal which adversely affected both the usual ambiance and the service ( unless you’re on a work night out)

A birthday dessert was offered of a bought meringue with a strawberry on top
They really should not have bothered as the dessert and plate were tacky

The food was excellent as always

Smiths is one of my favourite restaurants. The service has always been first rate until this visit when after twenty minutes the waiter was taking orders from recent arrivals and we had to ask to order. Whenever we wanted anything we had to struggle to get the waiter's attention. Its always disappointing when you have guests and have struggle to be served. The food was as good as ever and we'll put this visit down to an off day.

Amazing. It was my first time at Smiths and I loved it. Best prawn cocktail I’ve ever had. Skate and Hake were outstanding. Only criticism was the pastry on the Chocolate tart but the tart filling was delicious. Wonderful ambience with the pianist playing. I can’t wait to go back.

Great dinner at Smiths Wapping. Smooth service and outstanding fish - my Arctic herring and then Dover sole were the best I have had for years. Can be very noisy near the back wall.

This was our second visit to the restaurant. We enjoyed our meal enormously. However, we had one slight irritation. We had ordered a cocktail each and some olives which arrived promptly. Before we had had time to enjoy these our starters arrived. We would have appreciated more time to enjoy one thing at a time.

The food and service was fantastic and could not be faulted. However, for the price paid and prestige I expected from the restaurant I was surprised to be sat so closely to neighbouring tables, consequently the noise level was high and I found it difficult to hear my wife talking at times. But overall a lovely evening and highly recommended.
