Good cool spot especially for brunch. Warm vibe and friendly service. Pretty good cocktails. Have a few kinks to work out. but seem like they have a good base to build on. Sometimes a simpler review is best.

Reserve a table for brunch or you will be waiting in line. It's a very popular place with pleasant and accommodating staff and excellent breakfast choices. We had one classic breakfast, one order of eggs benedict (with their house leek sauce, not hollandaise), a croquet madame, and a huge stack of pancakes with rhubarb compote and maple syrup. The coffee... More

I came here with a large group for a party. It's a cozy place with good service. To start I got the french onion soup. It had a distinctive vinegary taste and was heavy on the onions with less cheese. I liked it. For my main I ordered the arctic char. The fish was cooked simply and well and the... More

We had a delightful dinner here. The cheese board & the charcuterie board were delicious! It's a very intimate setting with personalized service. Their menu options are not extremely diverse but many are unique. The. Sea bream special was delicious.

It's not a bad place when you first arrive. And if you like being cheated and treated like crap this is the perfect place. Two things really upset us. First, they over book the place and then unceremoniously boot you out after 2 hours. People are queueing all over the place and they take full advantage of this. The waiters... More

I've past by Smith many times on my way home from work. This Sunday was the first time I've had a chance to eat there - this time for brunch. The service was good eventhough the place was packed. We had to wait a few minutes for a table and the staff was very attentive, making sure we had coffee... More

The only "pro" of this place was the patio. It's well-decorated, and tucked away in the back. The rest are cons. The service was horrible. We waited 30 to, sometimes, 45 minutes for our drink orders. At one time, the waitress returned with a different drink, than what was ordered, because the bar had run out of Sprite and 7Up... More
