Great social distant set-up. The salmon tartare was fantastic. The veggie bibimbap was good, but I wish it either came with more veggies, or there was a more reasonably priced option to add protein. The mocktail was a little sugary, but tasty when I added sparkling water. Service was spot on.

Very attentive service. Nice quiet outdoor table away from crowds. Waitstaff was consistently being safe and conscientious about procedures, but not intrusive or overbearing. Would recommend this to anyone.

During this time of Covid-19, The Smith, Smith at Home, have been a life saver. We offer our utmost of gratitude to their Staff, Manager, Runners, Bartenders and All. You were my one comfort. The food never changed and remained as always top of the line deliciousness. We have much love for The Smith and hope you can prosper in the coming days.

We were seated promptly (make a reservation) and the seating was spaced out just enough to feel safe. The host was very pleasant and the server was outstanding. As usual, the food was delicious. Though they didn’t have my favorite beer, the server recommended another that was close enough. Overall, a very pleasant evening. I did give the value a 4 rather than 5. I do understand. And I know it’s Manhattan. Still a bit more than it should cost.
With that said, I do love The Smith.

The large, covered patio at The Smith lends itself well to socially distanced dining. This is one Manhattan restaurant that has been successful in making guests feel comfortable in the middle of a crisis. Service is very good and the menu is perfect for veg and meat eaters. I’ve also been to the East Village location recently and it was a great experience as well.

Excellent experience with my adult grandsons this past Saturday. A star off because they were out of raw clams; another star off for calling a lobster salad roll a "Lobster Roll"; a point on for allowing us to order moules frites even though there was still about 40 minutes to go before the dinner menu was supposed to kick in; and yet another star for offering a bottle of Prosecco that wasn't on the wine menu. Service couldn't have been better and lots of variety to the menu--even brunch which I usually try to avoid. The part of the outdoor area that's on Broadway is more pleasant than the setup around the corner on 63rd, but not enough so to refuse seating there.

WOW - Delicious!!! All four of us loved our meals - tbone, filet mignon, chicken, and bibimbap bowl. Also, the homemade chips with blue cheese was yummy as well - we all shared it and it seemed enough. We’ve lived in this area almost two years and are just sorry we didn’t try the Smith earlier.

They implemented this ridiculous rule that you need to put on mask everytime waiter approaches your table. Obviously, you can’t eat with your mask on. This turns into a continuous mascarade of you putting your mask on and off

I didn’t like that fact you can reserve at 9:45 but only had until 10:00 to order . We felt rushed . Other than that the food was great.

They've done all the right things to make you feel completely at ease when it comes to the diner's and worker's safety with proper social distancing and disposable menus, etc.
And the food has always been excellent. Finally a way to relax for a moment during these trying times.

I thinks it’s tacky to charge for soda refills. Especially when it comes from a machine. Also you should put it on the menu no free refills on soda. I paid $14 for a Diet Coke cause I had a couple of refills.

It was very annoying to have to put on a mask every time a waiter or bus boy comes to your table. We couldn’t relax and enjoy ourselves. Terrible. We left in frustration

Good following of safety during the pandemic - staff in masks and gloves. Salads were fresh and delicious and salmon cooked perfectly to specified temperature. Everything was excellent!
