    Best Mac 'n Cheese

    stumbled on this place last night after a movie across the street. Place was very busy even at 10pm on a Thursday night. We were greeted and sat right away by a friendly hostess, the waitress approached us almost immediatly and was very informative and pleasant. Mac 'n Cheese appetizer we shared was probably the best I've ever had in this city (not kidding). The bread in a bag thing is kind of annoying but hey...the complimentary sparkling water (or flat) was a treat. I had the Lamb Schnitzel which was delicious but I agree with the other reviewer regardig the lemon-mayo underneath (a wee bit weird if you ask me) my partner had the chicken pot pie which he said the crust was good but the sauce the pot pie was made with was dark and kind of different. For sides we shared the tempura battered green beans and the carmelized brussel sprouts. Both very good - we skipped dessert but had a third grey goose martini each, made extra dry as requested (some bartenders just don't understand what that means - too much vermouth can kill a martini!) at $14.00 a pop that seemed high considering the other prices of the menu. All in all I would go back again if I find myself back in the neighborhood.

    Great Find

    Happen to hit the movie theater across the street and fell into The Smith. Fantastic find- awesome atmosphere - had a few appetizers and drinks but the money call was the desserts - All different types of fantastic ice cream sundaes for $5 each. Perfect to share and lots of fun to choose from. Hit this place.

    What did they do to the lamb schnitzel??

    The Smith is one of my favorite places and we'd been going there consistently since they opened. However we hadn't been in a couple of months and went back last weekend to find that they'd changed the lamb schnitzel dish to include roasted potatoes and some gross, over-spiced mayonnaise-y sauce instead of the amazing lemony mashed potatoes that went so well with the lamb! I asked the waitress and before I could finish my sentence, she said "I know, I'll bring you mashed potatoes. It's better that way." So, please The Smith, bring back the mashed potatoes on that dish.. at the very least get rid of that mayo junk (and I don't hate mayo like a lot of people do..)

    Great new place

    I had dinner and brunch here last week and both were very good. Both days we were late for our reservation and the staff accomadated us without complaint. The food is very good and the prices are reasonable. If you go for brunch, definitely make a reservation or you'll have to wait (there is a nice long bar to pass the time). If you go for brunch, the country breakfast is delicious and the gnocci for dinner is great as well.

    Sunday Brunch is a Steal!

    My GF and I went to brunch on Sunday, and it was fantastic in every sense. The wait was originally 30 min but we saw two open seats at the bar and set up shop there. The bartender was very friendly (and witty), and took our drink orders w/in a minute of us sitting down. The Sunday Brunch is a great deal (which offers a complimentary bloody mary, mimosa, bellini, juice). Goat cheese/spinach omelette was delic, as was the french toast (the batter they use is incredible). Definitely going back again..and again..and again....

    Weird Salad Experience

    Went around 4:30 on a Sunday. My boyfriend's burger was swell, he said. My salad, though, was freezing. Like they'd just taken it out of a very cold refrigerator cold. Unpleasant.

    go spend your $75 elsewhere

    well after reading such positive reviews of THE FOOD at this RESTAURANT that serves FOOD (not service), i just had to chime in. first off, we were seated promptly for our early 6:30pm reservation on a friday night. pefect for a post-work meetup after a long week. i was excited to check this place out, as i've heard such amazing things about the food here. well, not so much. i was dissapointed with the meal. we started off with the potato chips+blue cheese that we had heard about. boring, weak, and pretty much gross "blue cheese sauce" doused all over some supermarket bag o chips. i could have bought a bottle of dressing from the corner deli and poured it over the chips and it would have been the same. whatevs, it's just an app. so we also tried the string bean salad, which i guess was supposed to be string beans covered in a greasy (almost tempura like) light fried batter. i thought we were going healthy and trying out at least one healthy app, but instead, we're served this greasy plate of something. i mean, it was fried so it was tasty, but just a little odd...again, not terrible ..just not recommended. so on to the main course...my wife went with the mussles and said they were pretty decent, and others at the table enjoyed their pork sandwich and pork chop. maybe they're not as picky as me, whatever. i thought i'd play it safe and go with the great looking burger you can't mess that up right? i went no bacon, and it was served with a heaping mound of thin cut, piping hot, wonderfully seasoned fries. the burger was covered in a white, mild cheddar that complimented the meat well. however, the burger was just plain lacking something. i'm a burger freak, so i always order it, even in a setting/atmosphere/environment that would dictate ordering otherwise. so what, i'm a creature of habit, leave me alone. anyway, the burger wasn't the worst i've ever had, but it certainly was far from the best. it was a middle of the road, pub burger in fact, most pubs/bars i go to make much better burgers than this, and you don't have to spend $12-$15 on it. bottom line, the restaurant did have a fresh and cool atmosphere with lots of people like us there. but all in all, each couple put in $75 (with tax and tip, and one drink each) for a meal that should have only been maybe $50 a couple.
