I just had the most AMAZING experience at Smith and Wollensky. The first time we came was over a year ago for the Whole Cow experience they had. It was one of the best nights we have ever had at a steak house. To be honest, I did not think this could be beat. We decided to come back to Smith and Wollensky for our 2nd Wedding Anniversary. COVID has ruined the majority of our plans, including our plans to travel for our anniversary. It only seemed right to make up for it by coming to Smith & Wollensky. This was the best decision we could have made!

Our waitress Claudia was PHENOMENAL. She was sweet and helped us with all of our questions and needs. She checked on us frequently and made it a point to make sure we felt comfortable. In the process we met Renée, who was also welcoming and very funny. It felt like we were dining with old friends. The food was phenomenal, and the Chef Jorge checked in on us after we ordered the Tomahawk and our Cookie Skillet. He was so nice and AGAIN made us feel so welcomed. Issac also checked in on us multiple times during the dinner which only solidified the level of service we not only expected but also received.

To be honest we felt like the staff was there to specifically celebrate our anniversary with us. From the hostess to the waitress to the chef and everyone we interacted with, it was a beautiful experience. They were graceful, kind and detailed throughout the night. We can't wait to tell our friends and family about this night. And we honestly can't wait to come back. If you're reading this review, read no further! Make your reservation NOW!

Great food and outside seating. During the pandemic it is important to feel like the staff and servers are committed to making clients safe. We felt safe the whole meal and the staff were quite professional. Definitely recommend if you are looking for waterfront outside seating during the pandemic

Exceptional experience from start to finish. We especially appreciated the very strict adherence to Covid19 protocols. Every singe staff member wore a mask, tables were well spaced, and nothing that had been touched by other diners was placed on our table. And with all that, it remained an elegant, relaxing, perfectly paced dinner. I won't go on and on about the food because everything was perfect, and everything I saw being carried by to other tables looked scrumptious.
I do want to call out our waitperson, Claudia, who could not have been more helpful and friendly. She was there when we needed her, didn't hover or appear when we didn't, and was warm and available without being intrusive. I will ask for her station when I go back.

Food and experience was fantastic! Everything was cooked perfectly, tables/restaurant was very clean and spaced out properly. Our waiter, Adamo was attentive, funny and all around great. Would recommend requesting him for top notch service.

Our first experience dining out since the pandemic hit Boston in mid March and could not have asked for a better experience. Tables were very spread out, restaurant was not crowded and all employees were wearing masks/gloves. Tamara was our server and was outstanding! Super friendly, gave great recommendations and was there whenever we needed anything. The chef even came out to make sure our steaks were cooked to our liking. Will definitely be back soon!

Celebrated our anniversary with some friends. Fist time there . We were seated inside of restaurant ,would of preferred outside instead, appetizers were good, we all got steaks,3 out of the 4 were cooked to our liking but my husband ordered his medium and it came out raw inside, by the time the waiter came back to check on us the 3 of us were almost done with ours and they took his back to cook it more and it kind of ruined his meal. He was eating his still while we were done with ours. The sides were good . We did stay for dessert because we saw someone get the chocolate cake which was really good and the coconut cake was also delicious .
I think if the steak did not come out raw, I would of given you 5 stars, but if your reputation is being a good steak house ,you should know how to cook a steak the correct way every time. We will come back, but not for awhile.

I was very unhappy our server wore his mask only in his mouth not his nose. A place like Smith & Wollensky should train their staff to wear the mask appropriately. We put our masks on when he took our order or served us. Shocked this was the case as most of the staff wore the mask appropriately although we saw 3 or 4 who did not.

We waited a while for our waiter to come over. Seemed that there was miscommunication between the host and server. Once we got our server, they stopped by sporadically, and had to wait 20 min to get our check. Food was very good, and it seemed that if you ate outside, the service was better.

The staff was very nice and friendly. I felt they could have been a bit more attentive. We ordered steak. Two of the steaks are cooked well but one was overcooked. We sent it back and it came out under cooked. They took it back again and it was still undercooked. For a steak at that price I would expect it to be perfectly cooked.

With the few steak houses we love closed still we decided to give this spot a try for it's patio seating. We were trying to celebrate my husbands 50th. Big, pricey mistake! The service was poor and the food was just not good. Once our main courses were dropped we never saw our waiter again and our drinks sat empty for most of our meal. By the time someone else finally came over we were done with the experience! I would not even recommend this place to my worst enemy!!
We salvaged the Bday dinner at the Capital Grille Monday night :)

Father’s Day.
Had reservation. Very good waitress.
My husband ordered steak and I ordered the salmon.
The steak was not great and my dinner arrived warm.
We brought it to the attention of our server and she spoke to the manager.
Told him we had been coming to that location since they opened and that the steak was not up to their usual standards. They gave me another salmon to take home.
Manager revised bill and took off steak.
We thanked him and told him we would be back.
