Went to B. Smith's earlier today for a pre-theater brunch with my 10-year old daughter. Had not been to the restaurant in many years - and there's been a distinct decline. I had basic scrambled eggs, sausage and cheese grits. The eggs were completely rubbery & overcooked. There was scraped brown & burned pieces from the grill/pan. Gross. The sausage... More

We truly enjoyed our dinner at B Smith. Great atmosphere and the food was great. Our waiter Brian O' Conner was outstanding with his Robin Thicke looking self. I even saved a piece of the chicken and brought is back to California. It was just that good.

My mom and I stopped in during our trip to NYC last weekend (8/2) for dinner before a show. We opted for the price fix menu with glass of wine. We were asked specifically if we had a show to catch. We replied yes, and felt secure that would mean we'd have plenty of time. We each sampled something different,... More

A friend and I went to this restaurant for NYC Restaurant Week (I based the "Value" rating on this fact) and I'm glad we went during that time. Not to say that the food isn't completely worth full price, but I know that I would've been mad if I had to pay a higher gratuity just because my meal was... More

I really hope B Smith's was having an "off" evening. I'd suggested we have some authentic American cuisine to a friend who was visiting from Brussels, which has some of the best cooking I've ever experienced. Since I love fried green tomatoes, I was happy to see them on the menu but instead of a light crunchy coating, the battered... More

This was pre-theater lunch on restaurant week. That can sometimes be a double whammy, it wasn't. Arrived later than we thought, but managed to have a comfortable lunch & still make our theater reservations [around the corner]. Service was not stunning, but was nice. One of us had the pulled pork, which she liked [was not too spicy], and they... More

B. Smith's was an easy find right off the train on Restaurant Row in Broadway. We stopped in right before a show and were able to walk right in without reservations. Now don't get me wrong- the food was good, but because I'm from the South and know what great Soul Food is, I'll just leave my review at good.... More

My friend recommended this place when I was visiting NYC. This was some of the best chicken I've had. We ate so much chicken and we weren't ashamed! We got the glazed wings for appetizers and they were so delicious. Then, it was the fried chicken for the entree. I got corn on the cob and the collard greens as... More

I stopped here on my last evening in this wonderful city. I sat at the bar and first ordered a drink off the happy hour menu. The bartender, William, was very nice and easy going. My drink was good. I almost ordered the chicken wings for about $7, but he told me you only get 4 pieces (which equates to... More

I brought my Mother here to celebrate her birthday. The restaurant has an open/airy feel and is decorated in muted colors of brown and creams. Brian was our server and was very helpful in assisting us with making our meal selections, being newbies here we didn't want to chance it and select any meals that were less than stellar. I... More
