Food and service were fantastic again, it has been my second time at the Top Floor, and we did enjoy it very much. The Chateaubriand the highlight of the night.
The service is polite and very helpful, keep it up.

I signed up to their Little Black Book scheme and got an email thanking me and offering me a free bottle of wine if I dined before the end of January ! Great welcome! As I was working in London the following week - myself and a colleague took advantage! Helpful and friendly staff right from the cvloakroom lady to the waitress and the manager :-)
Food was delicious - Indian spiced chicken was gorgeous and being healthy - we shared a fresh fruit platter with sorbet. We were encouraged to l,eave comments " good or bad please" on the blackboards on the floor below. great visit, lovely food, would definitely return!

Ate at Smiths for a friends 50th birthday on thursday night. Was a bit put off by some of the latest reviews , so sat down on the top floor with some background worries. Well I got to say that the evening from start to finish was a huge sucess. The food (all of it , not a duff dish in sight) was fantastic, the serving staff a joy ( the young lady who served us was charming,funny and knowledgable) and an all round great celebration of my friends 50th year. The highlights, the chateaubriand was the star of the show, closely followed by the confit duck. My partener who had the lamb , which was good , was missing out on some fastastic beef, I had the ribeye which was cooked and presented well .All in all a great night out would recommed

Have eaten here a few times a year for several years. The food quality is still decent, but the last few visits have resulted in slow and generally poor service. They need to sort their front of house out.

Food was poor for the price it was, ordered the South Devon Cote de Boeuf for two and was advised by the waitress to order something else as "this would take too long to cook" Really?!!
Béarnaise sauce was horrible and the steak we were encouraged to order was basic at best!

Sort out your food and staff! Really disappointing :(

I'm sorry that you didn't enjoy your Cote de Boeuf, this is one of our most popular dishes and we hope that everyone enjoys it. We are more than happy to change or amend dishes when dining with us so please do let us know in the restaurant next time as we would hate for you to leave without enjoying every aspect of your time with us.

I do hope that you pay us a visit again.
