The food was tasty but the drinks were a bit strong for our liking. Outside dining was the only option but lucky for us it was a nice day

Always love the smith, especially at brunch! Food was very good (although eggs were a bit cold) , great Covid 19 precautions. Only thing is there are so many homeless people in that area and were constantly walking by the tables without masks, so I didn’t feel safe. Had I been sitting at one of the street tables near the cars (which I had asked for but weren’t available) I would have felt safer.

Great chicken sandwich. Strict Covid rules. For example, the server cannot come to your table with a mask off.

Sunday brunch at 9:45 was very nice, seating well done outdoors with overhead covering and feeling of privacy and space with olanter barriers even though light traffic was flowing. Food was delicious and well prepared, service was excellent. All staff wear masks appropriately and ask guests to wear masks when servers approach table. Able to safely accommodate allergies to nuts as well.

The Smith is always great but the as the tables get further away from the restaurant down 3rd Avenue, so does the experience. We felt very exposed vs. the people who are in the restaurant’s open window and those in the alcove they’ve built just outside in the street. Understand this is a necessary evil but wouldn’t have kept the reservation if I’d known the table setup we’d be getting. Food and service were good as always though.

While our server was phenomenal, service was rather slow. I received a glass of wine almost 30 minutes after my boyfriend received his cocktail.

I ordered a Santiago Punch to drink, because you don’t find pisco on every menu. It was delicious! We split the Mac & cheese as an appetizer, which was PHENOMENAL. Then I had the watermelon and avocado salad with marinated shrimp, which was fairly good. I thought the flavor mix was interesting, but there were too many onions and not enough salad. The shrimp were fantastic!

Service was typically quick, and I’m loving the outdoor dining in NYC right now. This spot was no exception.

Great customer service. A dog jumped up and put his paws on the end of our table. Someone came by and washed the end of the table off. I thought that was very kind of him. We were impressed with the entire waitstaff, very friendly.

Good place for comfort food. The outdoor set up was nice.

This was my second time here. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be back. The salads and appetizers were quite good but all three of the main courses we ordered were pretty tasteless. I understand that seasoning is subjective but for all three to be bland was a disappointment.

Great brunch experience. While there was a bit of a wait for a late Sunday brunch, a text quickly notified me when my table was ready. The food was sooo good! We ordered a dozen oysters, chilled shrimp for appetizers. The seafood was fresh! My sister and I both ordered steaks w eggs and trust me not a bit was left over. We went for the 50/50 frozen margaritas and I was tipsy after one drink!

Hearty, savory food! Servers had wonderful energy and patience. We dined in the morning, and remained in shade until we finished our meal around 11:30am. So even though the city was in the midst of a heat wave, our outdoor meal was completely comfortable.

Reservations fill up quickly so be careful!

The food was delicious. My ricotta gnocchi was out of this world. The portions are small so the value isn't as good as others. But the drinks albeit expensive are very strong so you may only need 1 or 2. Wait staff is very careful right now which is appreciated and food comes fast. Thanks!!

The staff were at their best given the circumstances. Outdoor dining is not ideal at this location (high foot traffic) but they make it work
