Located on the "new" H street, this place has a variety of drinks and foods that will satisfy you. Had dinner with friends and the lamb, wahoo and goat ravioli were yummy. They mix a very nice mojito and their beer and wine list have a nice selection. Would come back here for sure.

First time in this part of Washington, DC. Met some friends and it was a nice night, even in late July to hang out.

I've been to Smith Commons a number of times for different events, random happy hours and such. The 2nd floor is my usual spot to go, but on a rainy day business was slower and the 2nd floor was closed. We sat at the bar downstairs and struck up a conversation with the bar staff and managers. The brisket tacos... More

We came on a Saturday night and got a great nook on the 2nd floor. Mac and Cheese and mojito are great!

We had dinner reservations here but they had the TV on so loud on a sports station on both the main and upper level, we walked out to find somewhere else to eat where we would be able to hear each other talk.

We went to SmithCommons for brunch......my wife tried the chicken sandwich...all dark meat....moist and delicious.she loved it. I ordered the shrimp and grits. When I tastes the grits I thought they had made a mistake and had prepared a risotto instead. Absolutely the creamiest most flavorful grits I have ever had. Now serving some good craft beers. Service okay....

Came for dinner with my husband, brother and mother. In my experience H St in general has awesome food but terrible service. The menu was reasonable so I thought I would try Smith Commons and take our chances. Pleasantly surprised! The watermelon marg was too sweet for my taste and they instantly took it off my check and didn't make... More

Went to Smith Commons recently at the start of a evening bouncing around H Street. Service was very good and friendly from the start. Had a steak dish which was done exactly as requested. Portions aren't enormous, but when combined with an appetizer it was plenty. Drinks are good - a few unusual cocktails to choose from and a decent... More
