They were out (AGAIN!) of their signature dish, fried green tomatoes. As a vegetarian, I was left with limited choices. Waiter did help modify the autumn salad so it ate more like a full meal and not an appetizer (kitchen was very stingy with the bleu cheese). Tater tots with wild mushrooms were completely delicious--perfectly seasoned and piping hot. Sauteed White wine was warm---? WHY? HOW? Not great value for the money. I won't be returning any time soon without the addition of more veg options, especially with so many other restaurants offering so many.

My sisters Ethel Mae, Coretta, Carmen, Kim and Kathy and I had the opportunity to dine at B Smith's (NYC) on Saturday, February 25, 2012 after attending Sistas, The Musical. The meals, the atmospher and the unexpected fellowship with Mrs. Smith and husband, Dan was 'Absolutely Beautiful.' I know I speak for sisters as well, "We had a grand time." "Thank You, Both." My choice of meal was the Southern Fried Chicken with Mashed Sweet Potatoes and Collard Greens. Being a true southern girl myself, I pride myself on being quite a cook, therefore it is pretty hard to please me with a restaurant style southern meal. Well, ALL THUMBS up to Mrs. B Smith. The meal was absolutely yummy to my tummy. A taste of my sister Mae's meal of Crab Cakes proved to be the 'best' crab cakes she and I both have ever had. Each sister raved about who's meal was best...this is clear evidence frequent trips to NYC must be planned so that we can each enjoy the entire menu. I commend Mrs. Smith, and husband Dan, for their dedication to the community in which they serve. This was our (The Milton Sisters) first time at the NYC restaurant, however, we were embraced with warm arms and we greatly appreciate the warmth and hospitality you so graciously shared. I look forward to dining with you again...soon. On my next visit, I hope to sample the Salmon with Grits with a my own side order of Crab Cakes. Again, we "Thank you" for the Absolutely Beautiful evening at B Smith's.

My first NYC visit, included dinner at B.Smith. This was a memorable experience for me and my daughters. The atmosphere,food,server,waiter,wine selection and jazz band really enhance the restaurant and gave me a sense of quality and elegance that B Smith is trying to offer her customers. While in NYC, B Smith should be included as a dining spot. For me, I'm ready to revisit. Too bad Miami doesn't have a restaurant like B Smith.

Sampled B. Smith's for a dinner celebrating my wife's B'day on 10/12/2011 after a matinee performance of "Anything Goes". Our expectations were high as this was our first visit to B"s, and for the most part those expectations were met. We began with an order of Fried Green Tomatoes as an appetizer. Pleasantly surprised with freshness, taste, and presentation. My wife ordered the Southern Fried Chicken and I chose the Corn Meal Encrusted Fried Catfish Fillet. Both were delicious, however I would have preferred a more adherent corn meal coating on my catfish.Our sides of Mashed Sweet Potatoes, Southern Style Greens,Traditional Mashed Potatoes, and Kale were perfect, ample and delicious. We finished with an assortment of Raspberry, Mango, and Coconut Sorbets for my wife, and a Sweet Potato Praline Pie for myself, which was more a large tart than a slice of pie, which was what I was expecting.What an incredibly delicious surprise here! Steaming hot when I cut into it and so delicious. Felt like home ! We also appreciated the ambience and decor with soft muted earth tones and comfortable assorted geometricaly designed pillows against the long side wall where we were seated. Professional smart service from our waiter and several managers an added plus. With coffee, tea and two cocktails our dinner was $116.00 before the tip. One minor down side, $4.95 for a 12 oz. soda with lots of ice and no refills seemed a bit steep, but otherwise a very enjoyable dinner. I recommend everyone give B's at least one visit and when we're in the mood for Southern Comfort food we certainly will return to B's

Food use to be really good a few years ago. I don't know what happened but food is just mediocre now. Dishes are overpriced and not worth the money.

I have been to B Smith's 3 times and it was usually a delight, but the last time, I figured she had hired a new chef. The food was overcooked. I took someone who had never been there before and I was embarrassed at my previous raves. Will not go there again.

we got there at 6:15pm for a 6:30pm reservation for a party of 4. seated right away, nice. unfortunately, waiter did not come by to take drinks orders 'til about 15 mins. came back to take our orders @7:05pm. we asked several times for bread because we were hungry, finally gave it to us at 7:15pm along with our appetizers. but our entree's came so late. we asked several times, we were given, "oh sorry, we have a party upstairs there must have been a mix up". in the meantime, the table sitting next to us that just came, their orders came up 20 mins after they came. and we had ordered the same thing, the rib eye. and finally, as we were eating our dessert, a new couple that was seated across us that just came who ordered some salad, our waiter came by to them, with a fresh pepper mill asking if they wanted some. in the meantime, our whole entire meal, never came by once to ask if we were fine. we ordered rib eyes, and we had to ask twice for a steak knife. very bad service. wait time was unacceptable. food was average. to top it off with a charge of a $5.00 soda was just too much. don't come here. there are better restaurants around the area.
