Having visited this restaurant several times it never fails to please. The food is always outstanding and the service is seamless. The staff are always exceptionally pleasant and help to make your time with them a memorable occcasion. If we are planning to eat in London Smiths always comes to the top of the list for choice. We have never had a bad experience and have recommended this venue to many people. Hoping we will be visiting again fairly soon.

Arrived at 12 noon for our 12.15pm table. Was seated promptly at a lovely table and was told we had the table until 2.30pm which was plenty of time. Our table of 5 was a mix of ordering from the set menu and off the a la carte menu but that was no problem. Oysters .... perfect and huge! Food was beautifully presented and our glasses were never empty. Waitress helped with wine selection and was very attentive bringing extra water and wine. We had 3 courses and had plenty of time and never felt rushed at all. A lovely lunch. Would highly recommend. If you're on a budget I'd highly recommend the set menu which has a huge choice. There are wines at all prices brackets. Also ask for a jug of tap water as it's free! Then just sit back and enjoy.

We had both been to the restaurant before and as usual it didn't disappoint and probably exceeded our expectations. We had a great table, lovely waitress, possibly the best vodka martini I've ever had and delicious food.

Food was delicious but was a little disappointed we did not get a window seat. Manager (I think-tall dark slim man was a little rude about it) The waitress serving us was fantastic- cannot remember her name but she was an Italian girl. I would go back because it was one of the tastiest meal I have eaten at a restaurant

Smiths was a favourite restaurant of ours, whilst living in Wapping. On returning for a few days in London, we booked an early dinner on a Tuesday evening. It was lovely to recognise many members of staff, which is a great sign of a restaurant that cares.
We were not disappointed with the excellent service, delicious food, and as always the wonderful view of Tower Bridge and the Shard.

Excellent food and service. We were made to feel very welcome and looked after very well. Only negative was seeing a waiter who wasn’t busy on his mobile phone.

Really enjoyed the evening and the food was amazing like usual.

Unfortunately, the prices have increased ALOT! And we felt like we were really rushed !We had eaten our 3 course meal within an hour and still had half a bottle of wine left!

They did explain they needed the table back by 9pm, but it was the way they said it made it feel like we were not valued!

The food was outstanding like it usually is. Great portion sizes and value for money with out a doubt. However the service was disappointing. We completely understood we had to give our table back after 2 hours but we were rushed throughout our stay. The courses cane out very quickly and we still had a good amount of time left. One 2 occasions staff tried to clear unfinished drinks and also my friends unfinished plate of main meal! This wasn’t nice and had put me off bringing new friends again, very unfortunate

Amazing as per usual only slightly let down by a frosty reception from the chap taking our coats. Other members of staff apologised on his behalf and luckily his bad day didn't ruin our birthday celebrations. This was the first time we tried the set menu and we weren't disappointed, the food excelled as always, amazing value, we will be back.

We always try to visit Smith's every so often just to experience the wonderful service and excellent fish, seafood and wine selection. It never lets us down. We visited on Valentine's day and as usual everything was wonderful. Perfect lunch.

Great food, excellent service and lovely views - the only minor negative was although our booking was at 12.00 noon we were not allowed to have a pre-drink in the bar beforehand as the restaurant did not open until 12.00 noon - I found the receptionist just a little too officious concerning this - and on a cold, wet February day could have been more flexible and accommodating.

Restaurant with the X factor, great atmosphere with full range of customers from jeans and ‘T’ shirt wearers to smart business suits united by joy of top quality food and service.
My starter of mussels was big enough for a main course and the main course of skate and samphire was excellent. Nice touch getting my cheese and biscuits on a happy birthday plate complete with candle, attention to detail.
The service is friendly and very good, discrete but attentive, and all with a smile on faces.
Really enjoyed the meal and experience, and have I mentioned the view?

Our Waiter was so attentive and very helpful but not intrusive - a perfect balance.

The food was amazing - the set menu was great value.

The front of house man could have been a little more friendly.

Fabulous evening though

Lovely setting with a view of the Shard and Tower Bridge and wonderful food and service to complement. Warm crusty bread and butter accompanied our drinks and were followed by starters of tiger prawns, tempura prawns and soft shell crab, tuna and salmon sashimi and avocado, crab and prawn which were all first rate. The Smiths speciality halibut was really terrific accompanied by seasonal vegetables and others enjoyed the traditional fish and chips, turbot with dauphinois potatoes and spinach, and skate with new potatoes. Just two of our party managed to eat dessert- tart tartin and steamed pudding which they said were scrumptious. Service was attentive without being intrusive and my only complaint was the odd shaped plates for some dishes which didn't allow knifes and forks to stay where placed. We will return soon or visit the sister restaurant in Ongar which is also great.
