Been there several times and loved it so much that i had to say it on here. One of the best teams in hospitality is behind this place. Service is a very very strong point led by the great man himself Scott Borg. Food is also great and i don’t think prices are any higher than you might pay in the same category of joints. Very busy and so many hip, cool, sexy, well dressed and happy people.
What else do you want?
For God's sake people : This is Prahran, Chapel St, bordering super cool Windsor - people that complain on here about this and that should have a meal and a night out in Glen Waverly or Nunawading, or even better not leave Burwood, Blackburn, Lower Plenty or any other God forsaken suburb they might live in.

Really loved the food at this place. Tasty, fresh, good variety of different tastes. Very friendly waitering and wine staff. The only thing that I thought that let it down a bit was it was quite loud inside and difficult to hear people around you talking. Otherwise, highly recommended.

The Smith is doing something right. This place is bustling with activity even on a Wednesday evening. I think it's the modern, clean and fresh feel the restaurant emanates along with a focus on a small, but rich menu of great selections.

The menu is categorized by "Mouthful", "Tastes", "Fish & Meat" and "On the Side". This might be self-explanatory, but just in case, mouthfuls are the smallest plates - appetizers. Tastes are light tapas dishes.

When we visited, they had tempura king prawn filled betel leaves as an appetizer. These were awesome. If they're available when you go, I highly recommend them. Then, I can also attest to the quality and taste of the rib eye with hot mustard horseradish - really good!

Our group of four went on the recommendation of our friends' son. The pub has the currently popular hard surfaces so is quite noisy and our table was close to the open kitchen too. We were told by our waiter that the food is designed to share, in small entree sized portions, but as with many of these concepts a little silly as dishes often come with, say, three portions, which is unhelpful when the table is four.
Generally the food wasn't bad; the pork ribs just fell apart to a fork.
However, as a yardstick, oysters were $4.50 each, which is over the top. We had 4 entree size plates, 3 deserts, 8 drinks and 2 coffees between us, with a bill of over $250.
