    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.

    What a welcome addition to the EV

    Not only was the service top-notch but the food was exceptional and very reasonably priced. I highly recommend the balsamic shrimp appetizer, the skate and this may sound weird but they make the best brussels sprouts!! Also, you cannot go wrong with one of their delicious sundaes for dessert (I recommend the birthday cake sundae with chocolate ice cream). They even have a photo booth downstairs by the bathroom! Only qualm is that it is a bit crowded and noisy inside...not a spot for a business dinner or first date but great for any other occasion.

    The Smith rules

    I had dinner with a friend at the Smith on Wednesday night and we absolutely LOVED it. The food is so delicious and reasonably priced and the service was so good. I think there was a waiter and busboy for every table. The restaurant was packed but the service was so organized and together. They could not do enough for you. It is like a very upscale bar, cool vibe and people and a welcome addition to the neighborhood. I can see them getting a lot of business because there are not many good restarants in the immediate area plus they are close to the movie theater. The only negative thing I can say about the Smith is that it is one of the loudest restaurants I have ever eaten in. I had trouble hearing what my friend was saying but the food and service are so good it really did not matter.

    It's Early, but they know what's what

    You can tell that the system is in & they are really finding their groove. It has a few rough spots, but this fun, friendly newcomer has a lot of real good things going on. The beer & wine list is priced right with good variety and a few surprises. The homemade potato chips with the gorgonzola fondue drizzle is a neat tasty shared warm up. The lamb schnitzel is not greasy and tastes great over very good smashed red potatoes. The pork chop came out tough, but has promise and it comes on a bed of apples & onions that work well. The mac & cheese was tasty, but was too al dente and when this was noted it was wisked away & a very large pot of mussels and a huge side of very fresh housemade french fries were brought. No arguments, no excuses, just "ok, what can we bring you instead." As a matter of facr, after the entrees were done, a manager came over and said he heard that the pork chop was tough so he took it off the bill, no prompting just efficient.. We had a side of sauted spinach that was cooked perfectly and there are alot of sides and other dishes that look very promising from pastas, other veggies and some very nice salads that we saw. When you sit down, on the table are two bottles of water, one still & the other fizzy. No what kind of water do you want? Very cool. The desserts are a list of fun $5 sundaes and I mean fun. They hit the spot. The place reminds you of Schillers in a lot of ways & this comparison is in a good way. With all entrees under $20 except fo steak this Jane/Mermaid sibling is just the right call. We will be back.

    Great Pork Chops

    Nice trendy addition....Cool bar with "interesting cocktails". Unique food selections some unusual and some great staple/standby/comfort foods. Good vibe but could be noisy. All in all they seem to truly have done it right. Kudos and i will be back..Have the Pork Chops. Best ive had anywhere!!

    Thumbs up!

    A nice addition to the neighborhood and a step up from the Pizzeria Uno that was in the location previously. I've tried them for lunch and dinner, both on a weekend. OK sandwiches, very good burger with the works, good fries. The place is noisier at night than during the day, but the service and fairly spacious layout tend to compensate. Didn't feel rushed or cramped. They seemed to appreciate my business, which is something I can't say for many restaurants in this city.

    Great Spot

    Great addition to the neighborhood. Brunch is fantastic. Finally a place that knows how to make hollandaise sauce. Great bar, great food, great atmosphere.
