This is a great street within Brooklyn guessing been subject to some regeneration in recent years and has a great vibe! You are spoilt for choice in eating and dining establishments - french, diner, fine food to diners take your pick. What a great atmosphere and great place to spend some time. 24 June 2015 YB

Smith Street in Brooklyn is well known for its restaurants but specially for its French Restaurants. There is a large French community residing in this neighborhood. Nice area, mostly a family oriented neighborhood with small cafes, bakeries and restaurants for all tastes!

Smith street is an extended village atmosphere. A lot of very good and distinct restaurants, and a lot of small unique shops.. Very good subway access

Good restaurant row, I could engage in nostalgia and speak of its past. Rundown, hardly. Blue collar neighborhood with Mom & Pop businesses, definitely, good food, absolutely. Tough, yes, seedy, around late 60s-70s, but so was most of NY. By the by, gentrification is not a renaissance . Today, trendy food, cafes and shops. Some very good, some not so... More

I live near Smith Street. I do not want to denigrate the restaurants there but it seems like Smith Street moment has come and gone. Call it high rents, aging population but the innovation has been sucked out of the place.

When I was a kid my mom took me here to buy my school shoes,furniture and clothes.That has all changed.Now there's trendy coffee shops,modern eateries,art stores and bars.This is one gentrified neighborhood now.The hipsters took over there's very few leftovers left.Much better now than back then.Drug addicts were all over the place up until the mid 90's.Very easy to get...

Smith street Brooklyn was at one time a run down area In recent years there has been a renaissance in the area. The neighborhood is much safer than in past years and many interesting and very good restaurants. Great place to walk on a summer night and stop for dinner.

If you're in the neighborhood, it's always fun to walk the mile or so of Smith Street from Atlantic Avenue to the end. There are lots of interesting stores, restaurants, and bars. The closer you get to Atlantic, the fancier the establishments become. but it's still all human scale and pretty laid back. Nearby is Court Street, which runs parallel... More

Though I was a bit hesitant bout staying in Brooklyn, it was beyond our expectations. Safe area full of bars and restaurants. Close to the underground station. Great for the bar hoppers and families

I could eat out everynight here. There are loads of little resturants and bars. Some cute and some not so, but always something going on!
