The Restaurant is a bit out of the way, so it is a destination rather than a drive buy impulse Restaurant. But the extra minute to have your GPS guide you is worth the while. Our Birthday celebration started with a warm welcome and engaging staff. The appetizers were delicious and the beverage selection was outstanding. Our three entrees were all excellent. Steak was cooked to a perfect medium, lamb shanks was delicious and ready to fall off the bone and the daily special meatloaf was abundant in size and delicious in taste. Well done Smith Flat House. Desserts were equally exceptional and our server Jamie chimed in a wonderful rendition of Happy Birthday.
As many reviewers have attested, this is a rare find and the restaurant and staff deserve our top recommendation and accolades.

We were last here in January and throughly delighted with this seemingly unknown restaurant. Our meal service was prompt. Our steaks were done exactly as requested. Our server was attentive without being a pest. The wine list is representative of El Dorado county and as the meal affordable. They appear to focus on local produce and general food suppliers. In the future we will return more often.

Hidden away In the historic Gold Rush community of Smith Flat is the Smith Falt House Restaurant. It appears to have evolved from a Pizza / Paninis establishment into a full menu establishment with Primo & Secondo courses. What an enjoyable evening we had under the guidance of Josh, the owner and Tim our server. Our New York strips with Yukon Gold potatoes were excellant. The Braised Short Ribs were a tasty surprise. Although the wine list was not extensive we were able to select wines from local El Dorado County vineyards and at reasonable prices. If you decide to go, ask Tim to give you a short history lesson about Smith Flat and the Restaurant. It is worth the time. We will definetly go back
