I hadn't been since the changeover, but don't believe it's up to Chadwick's standards. That said, it's a fine place and service was good. My crab soup was loaded with crab, but the vegetables in it were a little crunchier than I'm used to in a soup. My Reuben was tasty enough, but a little slim on the stuffing. Chips... More

I used to be a regular at this place when it was Chadwick's and returned after a 2-year hiatus to find it under new ownership and name. The place is definitely NOT what it used to be, especially on Saturday night. Bartenders are young and inexperienced, food is OK, but the whole ambiance is just gone. People would walk in... More

Brunch with my daughter here. I had never heard of "bottomless drink" brunch. I didn't want something I can make myself so ordered Eggs Idaho. The waiter didn't really explain it well and the menu didn't either but I figure potatoes and anything can't be bad. Before me arrived perfection! Four potato skins fried golden with a mixture of eggs,... More

I used to visit the old Mr Smith's on M Street, and hoped the pleasant ambience and decent service had transferred to their new premises on K Street. Sadly not. We ordered starters and mains, and were bemused when the waiter brought the whole lot together. They seemed surprised when we sent the mains back. To be fair, they did... More

What a terrible restaurant! Bad service, bad food and cleanliness was terrible. Would not recommend! Food took forever, waiter had no idea, drinks were flat! Don't go.

Waiter keep asking us what our order was and when we ordered dessert had to wait about 50mins for it to come out. 20 mins after we ordered they came and told us they ran out of cake for dessert so one of...

Smith's is my favorite bunch place downtown. I love the crab omelet and the Bloody Mary's. I have been going here for an eternity. The piano bar was a weekend staple for a couple of decades. So sorry to hear that it is closing. A bit of old time DC - funky and friendly.... to be replaced by places for... More

Overall an average experience. Went while in Georgetown after a long travel day. Drawn in by the sin for a piano bar and outdoor garden seating. Walked through a happening bar scene but no piano bar. Garden was kind of enclosed and dark. Food was fair but not pricy for the area.

Stopped to watch a match and would go back another time to try more. Happy hour drink prices are fair. Chili nachos were blah, but the wings were good as were the chicken fingers (more like planks - well done)
