    We love Smith & Daughters and the 9-course banquet is really great to get a broad selection from the inventive menu. I’m not vegan, however this restaurant is still one of our favourites. The service is always warm and personal.

    First time dining at Smith & Daughters and I will be back. My partner and I chose the chefs table as our dining experience and we were not disappointed. All staff went above and beyond to make our experience memorable. So much variety, portion sizes are great and the atmosphere was beautiful. The staff are also incredible in accomodating to allergies.

    Great food and atmosphere. Had the chefs table. We had around 11 small courses. Could not fault unless you are very picky. Only downside was quiet smoky inside as most of the food is smoked

    Having travelled all the way from Sydney for a chef's table experience, we didn't enjoy it at all. The counter they sit you at is small, uncomfortable and unimpressive, the kitchen you have to look at is ugly and allows you to see chefs eating and touching their faces waaay too much while cooking, and you are sitting too close to other guests. The food was way too high in volume and too low in quality - every dish was a miss for us and we are very well travelled vegan diners so this is not due to lack of sophistication on our part - quite the contrary. The drink list was overly dependent on booze and generally uninspiring. We were laughing the whole way because the whole thing was just very amateur. We definitely won't be back.

    Food was tasty. Lots of love in the food. Service was attentive and somewhat orderly. We received our mains and finished them before the entree was served. That was disappointing. The biggest concern was the portioning. It left a lot to be desired. So much so we were left hungry enough to go out again and have dinner (again) at another restaurant. So in short, it was quite disappointing.

    I booked for my partner´s birthday, we had one of the best dining experiences ever! We already used to enjoy going to Fitzroy´s location, the first time at Collingwood. The staff spoiled us like we were a VIP, which was very much appreciated and unique, we got excellent staff selection, wine testing before ordering it, and overall quick and elegant service. Rarely do we give tips for dining however this time I felt it was much well deserved. Thank you so much Smith & Daughter´s chef, waiters and staff!

    A delightful experience, new adventures in terms of tastes and textures. We loved the Blackened Carrot, the gluten free foccacia, the Winter mushrooms on buckwheat polenta, the beans, and then to top it off, the Creme Catalana 9big enough for three to share.

    Came for my partners 30th birthday. We found the large share portions to be equal to the small share portions and were a bit confused when the food was coming out. We got two small and two large shares. Ordered two desserts to eat together and had to go up and ask for the other as they only bought out 1. By the time my one came my partner had finished his, I didn’t want him to wait for mine to arrive. We were still hungry when we left and ordered red sparrow when we got home.

    It’s good to see vegan/plant based food at this level! But I think some of the dishes are more over complicated than they need to be. Personal choice, but some vegan dishes don’t need to recreate the flavour of meat. Although I understand the bridge that is needed between both ‘worlds’. But! Value, experience and service was 10/10! Would come again.

    The food + service at Smith + Daughters is truly superb. We dined here (two vegans + two non vegans) + everyone was blown away by the flavour + taste sensation of every dish. The non vegan guests were shocked at the flavour that could be achieved with innovative plant based cooking. S+D is our fave dinner destination. Thank you!

    Food was good but it arrived cold. Char-coal chicken piccata was nearly perfect - bit more juicy and more chicken flavour and it will be unrecognisable from the "real thing". Grilled carrot was a bit of a disappointment, just tasted like burned carrot - nothing special. Parmesan taste was perfect in the Bucatini dish - a bit boring otherwise. Alcohol free cranberry cocktails were perfect - wish I could bottle it. Pear dessert and Creme catalana were good, not too sweet which was nice. Different textures in the pear dish was nice, very refreshing gelato. Dessert spoons were huge, smaller spoons and a dessert forks would have worked better. Overall we had a good experience and would come back again. Very cool open kitchen. If I missed anything I'd have to say that it would be the wow factor. Lovelovelove that Everything is vegan - please never change that!! That's what makes this place so special, modern and innovative. Also liked the gothic interior and staff outfits. Thank you, keep rocking :)
