Excellent reception and promptly seated. Salomon, our server was very attentive and genuinely friendly. The support staff bussed the table without being asked- this makes for a more relaxing dining experience.
But, the noise level was overwhelming. I could not focus on our conversation and my guests commented on the annoying noise level.
Our meals were well prepared and arrived at table without delay.

The Smith has a decent brunch with very good Eggs Benedict and a tasty Bloody Mary. However, the noise levels can be excruciating when it's full. Service is friendly and helpful.

Overall nice restaurant, atmosphere. Food is good, service is better, a bit expensive. Caesar's Salad as a main entrée was more the size of an appetizer salad, not a main course, so would now order that again.

Our food was amazing and our server was very attentive. We didn't wait to be seated as we had a reservation and the food came out fairly fast.
I had a steak salad and it had super tender fairly big chunks of steak and the balsamic dressing was outstanding.
My boyfriend had mussels and the bowl was overflowing with them!
Great taste for good price.
Highly recommend!

Great server. Food was good - not amazing but good. It’s a loud restaurant made louder by having the front opened to the outside so street noise added to it (and diluted the air conditioning on a hot day). Friendly.

Overall a decent meal. We went for brunch and everyone seemed to enjoy it. I had the eggs benedict and one was over cooked. Bloody Mary was good. Would try again

Had my bday brunch here. I love The Smith already, but this recent visit reminded me just how good the french toast and bacon are! Everyone was very pleased with everything. BTW, I got engaged that day too. The Smith made it special by preparing and decorating a dessert for me that said "Congratulations!"

I had a BLT+E sandwich. The egg was so messy I couldn't lift up the sandwich. The bacon was so tough, I couldn't use a knife and fork. Because I was with a client and didn't want to make a big deal about it, but if I hadn't been, I would have sent it back. It was disappointing and I barely could eat anything.

The Smith East Village was excellent for many reasons. We had dinner reservations on a Saturday at 6:15. We were seated immediately Our waitress was attentive to both our daughters’ food allergies ( peanuts and tree nuts) and the manager also came over to review the restaurant’s thorough allergy-safe practices. Everyone was very nice and accommodating. The food was well- prepared and delicious. Thank you!

I go to the Smith all the time. Everything I order is always delicious and always consistent even though their produce changes seasonally and their menu gets updated relatively frequently. This time there was an small issue with my order. I suspect the waitress forgot to put it in. But she was honest in letting me know their was a pretty significant delay with my meal. I was a party of five and I was content with my cocktail and happy to wait. Not only did she comp my dish but she sent me home with three ewwwyy gewwwy chocochip cookies on the house. And each cookie was the size of my head. No place can be perfect all the time and errors happen but they own up to it and treat their customers right. :) I will always be a loyal customer to the Smith.

This place is usually my go to with friends visiting from out of town. This time I went to celebrate with my fiancé and the waiter was terrible! He was all over the place and find that I needed to nearly choke to get his attention. I’m not sure if services are better on the weekdays, but definitely not coming back on a Saturday.
