I went recently after reading about such a heralded place. Man, was it orverrated. The food was bland, overpriced and ridiculously pretentious. The owners, presided over the dining room regularly snatching things from servers hands and demeaning them in front of customers. What an unprofessional environment. I hardly would recommend spending your scratch on this overpriced overhyped little dump of a place.

had a fabulous dinner at the grocery last night. delicious food and great service. we had the grilled octopus and the fried artichoke to start, and then the duck and the lamb. everything we ate was perfectly cooked and seasoned, and the service was attentive without being obtrusive. we were also treated to a few extras, which were a welcome surprise. overall, it was a lovely evening.

I heard a lot about this place and walked in a few weeks ago to inquire about brunch. When I walked in - there was a someone waiting on a table near the entry and I said to him - when you get a minute, I have a question. He said, "No, shoot, ask me now". I asked, do you do brunch on Sundays? He looked me up and down and said, "Actually, I SLEEP on Sundays... Sorry. But thanks for thinking of us". What a jerk.

Went for dinner on a Wednesday night. Had a 7:30 reservation and sat in the beautiful outdoors. Long wait for appetizers, even longer wait for main course. Others who came in after us (we were a party of 5) were served much sooner. Even dessert was slow. Don't understand it. Based on this service I probably would not go back.

Lovely, delicious dinner in the garden. All aspects of the evening--food, service, atmosphere--were completely satisfying. And it's a relative bargain. Smith Street has certainly changed since I lived in Carroll Gardens in the 70's. Who could've guessed?

I brought two family members with severe gluten allergies here, and the attentiveness to their needs by the entire restaurant staff was incredible. Our table was visited at least 3 times by kitchen staff to double check and ensure that the requisites for gluten-free eating were met, and we were as charmed by them as the waitstaff. The food, it almost goes without saying at this point, was excellent.

A great spot for sure! The quality of the food is oustanding. The portions are excellent as well. Loved the Trout!
