In the past, I've visited B. Smith's many times. I've been to her NYC and DC restaurants. The food was always so good. On this trip, I'm still wondering what happened to the wonderful food I used to savor there. I ordered the prixe fixe menu. Everything was bland. Sent my first entree back. It tasted and looked warmed over.... More

Had dinner here on our last night in NYC. The food was good - I had the ceasar salad to start and the fried chicken as a main along with the bread pudding. The Best part was the salad, complimentary corn muffins, and the mac and cheese -which was amazing. The service was so so.

Food is Ok, service could be better. The waiter doesn't have an idea how to be polite and nice to customers.

Barbara Smith's restaurant has been here for ages, and I have been here a few times. The upscale decor is nice but the food is hit or miss. I am not a big fan of southern fried food so I think she should expand the menu to include more healthier choices.

Had a coupon from restaurant.com. The crispy oysters weren't so crispy. The ribs were good. The bread pudding was the best part of the meal. Service was not great. They gave our dinner to the table next to us so we had to wait for a refire. Then the wait staff took forever to bring me back the check after... More

I went to B Smith's while in NYC for my wife's birthday. After seeing a show, I thought B Smiths would be a nice stop to make to top off the evening. Its possible my expectations were too high, but the food just wasn't up to par. There are some things you expect when visiting a restaurant in mid Manhattan.... More

I've heard wonderful things of B. Smith's in the Theater District here in NYC but unfortunately the service, food and ambiance were all below what I hoped. The food was mediocre and wait staff were very much in need of training. I could not believe. I was in the middle of my meal when I reached in my purse for... More

Love B. Smith's. Comfort food with flare and originality. Check out theor innovative cocktails and the Cajun Caesar salad- a delightful surprise. Everything that spoke to me was on the pre- fixe menu although admittedly, I tend to lean towards the fried chicken. Although we were not going to the theater on my last visit, it is a terrific pre-theater... More

Walking along Restaurant Row our group of women friends spotted B. Smith's and walked in. It was a treat we savored--from the excellent dinner choices starting with the tiny cornbread and biscuits to the fine dessert and service. The best part was meeting B. Smith. She is elegant, friendly, and forever beautiful! The first night of our girlfriend's NYC trip... More

Food was horrible, service was horrible. Was playing good Music ( R&B ) and then changed to classical music and just killed the whole vibe. Prefixed Menu was horrible including the dessert.
