Our group was starving after traveling all day and randomly chose Smith's for dinner. We all had different specialty burgers and fries. Each one was just as described and cooked perfectly. They had a good variety on the menu. Recommended !

We were on vacation in NYC and happily this restaurant was across the street from our hotel. The food was very good as was the service. We shared a plate of seafood linguine and no complaints. I would definitely recommend this place.

Visited Smith's again- disappointed that they no longer have live music, but the food, atmosphere and service were still great. Their wings are better than any you will get at Buffalo Wild Wings or any of the national chains. Food was served very fast, and the bar staff was outstanding. Also recommend the onion soup. Prices are on the high... More

We went to Smith's before a night out on the town. We actually got 2 seats at the bar which was great. We ordered bloody mary's that were awesome. My husband had a great burger and I had the calamari, it was great. The waitresses were gorgeous so my husband was drooling.

We enjoyed the atmospheres. Great burgers, fries and onion rings. Rather big portions though! Make sure you are hungry when you visit.

We were seated quickly and was even obliged with our choice of a booth as to a table. Service wasn't overly friendly by any means. The food was good. I had the chicken parm sandwich with their homemade fries that were delicious. My wife had the Classic Burger and added bacon, as well as cheese. There are flat screens all... More

Generally good food. Although service tends to be slow. Was after the egg's benedict but settled for the traditional breakfast with an addition of a sausage. .. which turned out to be 2 burger patties

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
