Myself and 8 friends went to the Smithfield for our friends birthday, Suffice to say next time we'll get a takeaway. It started badly when two of our rose spritzers with lemonade didnt taste quite right, which to be fair they did replace, but they still tasted nasty, and we were told "the lines were only changed yesterday" and that was the end of that. Another one of us later ordered another lemonade which tasted like fizzy water, and they did replace it with a new one from the other bar, but this wasnt much better but frankly we were thirsty and just drank it anyway.
We ordered our food, and our vegetarian friend noticed there was not a single vegetarian option on the menu. She was told all food was cooked fresh so she could have whatever she wanted, but not liking to dictate what they had to cook she opted for a panini. We than waited over an hour to be seated in the restaurant, and a further 15 minutes after that our food finally arrived. I had a fillet steak with pepper sauce, and the sauce appeared to have curdled and my onion rings were cremated and I'm not convinced there was any onion in them. I ordered my steak rare, and rare it was not, although this is probably being a bit picky as it was medium-well done. Quite frankly by this stage we were so hungry we would have eaten anything.
We asked about desserts and were told of the 8 items on the dessert menu only 3 were available. The only other table in the restaurant had ordered their desserts just as our meals had arrived and still hadn't had them 30 minutes later, so we decided to cut our losses and not bother.
Personally I wouldnt bother going back here again, there were 13 people in total in the restaurant and they were painfully slow. I dread to think what it would be like when it was busy. The food was average at best, and certainly not worth a return visit. Get a takeaway and stay at home folks, or go to Prezzos.
