A group of us went to the newest addition to Lincoln center area called the SMITH restaurant. While the food was good, it was so noisy, we couldn't hear what each other was saying. Maybe it is not geared for the over 50 crowd, but I can not remember enjoying such a racket even when I was in my 30's. Hate to say it, but if you are looking for a nice dinner with freinds, take a pass or bring ear plugs.

We went to The Smith because friends tolds us to... thank you guy for this. My family had a delicious dinner with good food at a reasonable price. Children loved it, my wife wich is vegetarian loved it to. The atmosphere was great.
Since we all loved it, we went back a couple of days later for lunch and had the same great experience.

We stopped in for a late lunch just by chance and what a great surprise. Our server was wonderful and attentive, the service was friendly and efficient and the food was fantastic! We had the deviled eggs to start which were rich and mustard-y - just enough to make them delicious. The burgers were done perfectly to order; the mac n cheese for my daughter was creamy and homemade; the oysters on the half shell were fresh and excellent; salads were fresh and good and we had enough fries to feed 12 more people, but they were so crisp and delicious, we ate more than we should. We noticed that they open the front walls of the restaurant up in the warmer months which we love in New York. We will be back!
