Bad Bad Dont go there!

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... read more

The food is fantastic! I had the Salmon Eggs Benedict with the leek fondue on top, my friend had the croque misure and we shared the... 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

I went here for Summerlicious and had low expectations. I was pleasantly surprised! Lunch was only $15 and I received very generous portions. To start, I had their salad, for my main I had the burger and for dessert I had the brownie and ice cream. The 3 other people that I went with were also very impressed with the... More

Having eaten here twice before, I was expecting both good service and quality grub. On arrival we were offered "anywhere you like" other than the table of 6 already seated. We ordered one starter and two mains. After a few minutes - the spring rolls were "off". (we have a big party upstairs) I would have believed this had the... More

Went here on date night. Googled looking for local restaurants in the area and Smith came up. Went in not knowing what to expect. Immediately thought I wouldn't like it. Quaint space, very cozy with "hipster" modern classic euro retro design. I'm not a fan of small spaces. It was quite packed. We sat down and noticed that the "newspapers"... More

Walking from town suite hotel looking for breakfast, we saw a sandwich board advert. Went up the steps and there were 2 doors, 2 restaurants. We chose smith and had a great breakfast. We were back at hotel and looking for early dinner so went back. The menu was not big but varied and staff were good. Ambience really nice.... More
