    I came here with a bunch of friends for my birthday and couldn't have been happier with the food, service, atmosphere. The salmon was fantastic - and the brusselsprouts were SO good. They were shaved. If I hadn't read that I was eating brusselsprouts, I wouldn't have known.Mushroom ravioli was very tasty, so was the burger and the porkchop. The potatochips w/blue cheese fondue was great - the cheese is drizzled over them. Mmmm. I asked about the ricotta gnocchi, it's not made from potatos, but little bites of ricotta cheese. If I wasn't worried about eating all of that cheese at one time, I would have tried that as well. I had the birthday cake for dessert, I think that's the only thing I wouldn't recomend. It was kinda dried out like it had been around for a few days. But by that time I was so full, it didn't really matter. All in all, it was a great bday dinner!

    Working out the Kinks

    We were seated rather promptly, but it took over an hour for our order to arrive, as we watched patrons that had arrived after us receieve their food-It was a simple French Toast + Steak & Eggs. The waitress was rather gracious and apologized for the mix up, and offered us some of their yummy biscuits on the house. They also screwed up our bill charging us for the mimosa that was included in the brunch price. All in all the food was actually pretty good, perhaps the bestd French Toast I've ever had in the city. My boyfriends steak was just about perfect, and a pretty hefty portion. The decor and all around mood is a little cheap and forced for my taste (it still resembles the prior occupant, Uno's, a little too much) Seating was cramped. Outside of the poor service, chalk it up to a fluke, the food was actually quite tasty. Maybe they're still working out the kinks?

    Good food and service, decor lacking?

    Recently came for brunch/lunch on a Saturday morning. Not sure what to make of decor. Wasn't crazy about the black and white and the place appears more informal than it really is. More importantly though, the food was great. The french toast was thick and soft with yummy bananas. The egg white omelette was delicious as well. Service was great too. Our food came out quickly and the waitress was always around to fill our coffee cup. Would definitely return!

    Great food and service, homogenous crowd

    Every step of the way, my friend and I were greeted and treated with terrific, friendly service. After waiting at the bar for our table, we decided after a nice glass of wine to plant ourselves at the bar to eat rather than wait any longer for our table. The restaurant was very crowded at 8pm on this Thursday night, not unusual for any good East Village restaurant especially those in close proximity to NYU dorms. But the crowd was homogenous and rather conventional. In other words, lots of people of the sorority and Wall Street aesthetic. In spite of this, we enjoyed the wonderfully crispy and tender calamari and the juicy hanger steak that was cooked to perfection. The pork chop arrived as an intimidating two-inch thick cut, which prompted the neighboring frat boy to nudge me and ask if indeed it was "The Pork Chop". Unfortunately, it was a little overcooked and dry, although tasty. With the side of nicely sauteed spinach that we ordered, we were completely stuffed by the end of our meal. The bartender treated us to another glass of wine which only added to our memorable meal.

    Nice, upscale casual.

    Great neighborhood place. One would think the food wouldn't be good, based on such a varied menu, but it is quite tasty and reasonably priced. Nice casual atmosphere that is one step up from a diner.

    It was ok...

    Some of the reviews for this place make it seem like God's gift to mankind. I had a good time at the Smith I like the atmosphere of the place and I can see the upscale bar comparisons that one other reviewer made. I booked a large party there recently, however I failed to realize one key fact: the Smith is a diner. It's dressed up nicely, the service is good (although they loom a bit too much), and food is decent, but its a Manhattanized diner. That said, I would not advise ordering things besides the basics for example, I ordered a burger which was fine, but a friend of mine ordered a piece of fish (not sure what) which was decent but inexplicably small, while another of my friends received an undercooked steak. I would definitely go back though, except with lower expectations and no more than 5 other people.
