Had not been to Smithfields for a while due to previous bad service but decided to give it another try. Unfortunately, the brunch service has not improved. Had a 12:00 reservation and our food finally arrived a few minutes before 1:00. Many excuses about how busy they were. Perhaps they should take fewer reservations or stagger the seating if the...

We found our light lunch to be overwhelmingly salty. Our waitress, while charming, seemed distracted and there was a long wait between charcuterie starter and main dishes. Other reviews indicate that this restaurant has good days and bad days. We'd give it a second chance to impress.

Supposed steakhouse. Not much selection of beef. Ok not fantastic. Service very good. Ample portions. Appetizers good. Convenient by not easy to find.

This was my third and last attempt to understand the hype of Smithfields and their celebrated chef. They were NOT busy the night I had the (very pricey) rib-eye special but it took forever to receive my meal. The steak was okay but I was so pissed from waiting so long that I didn't enjoy it. The staff seem poorly... More

This is a good place for you. It calls itself "Meat Centric" and it is, although there are options for those who want fish, fowl or veggies. The prices are a little steep but the place looks and feels like one of those great gastropubs one finds in London. The food is excellent and the grilled romaine is off the... More

For the past several years we didn't think Ashland had any pet friendly restaurants. When we found out that this restaurant is pet friendly and inquired at the front desk, both people working gave it an excellent recommendation. They have a beautiful patio with a view toward the mountains. They have an extensive menu

Family and friends enjoyed the entire experience. The wait staff was exceptional. The food was very good and well presented. The outdoor seating was perfect for our group.

My husband and I ate here last night for our wedding anniversary. Best meal we have had in a long time, absolutely fabulous quality of food. MY only critique would be I wish the seating were a little less informal and that the water and drinks were served with ice. However they did accommodate the ice request as soon as... More
