“Birthday Lunch Ruined”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

This restaurant is at one of the most beautiful spots in Boston overlooking the water. The food was awful. Our salad had un cooked bacon and the burgers, ordered medium, came our raw.

This could be a terrific spot with some good kitchen management.

“Best Meal Ever!!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

My husband and I arrived in Boston on the first night of our honeymoon and decided we would go to a steakhouse for dinner. Did a little research and came upon Smith & Wolensky. We were able to sit outside with a view of the harbor, which was nice to take in. We ordered crab cakes for an appetizer, which were by far the best either of us had ever had. But even better than that were the filets we ordered. We've never had any to even compare to - they were that good. The prices were a little high, but since it was a special occasion we didn't mind. The staff was very attentive, but you never felt rushed to leave. I would definitely recommend this place!

“Great location in Summer”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Good Food, Great Location and Excellent Service. Specially in summer if you get patio seating...this is an excellent place to visit.

I tried the Buffalo Oysters and Halibut....very interesting...The Halibut comes with an exceptional gravy and I loved it

The service was also excellent...

Would love to be back....

“Wonderfull Dinner! Fantastic meat & dessert”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

We had a great evening at S&W. After a walking day in Boston we were ready for great steaks and we got them! The sides are really large sized, so better follow the advice of your waiter;-)!
After we saw the incredible tasty looking chocolate cake at our neighbors table we couldn't resist and neither should you. It was the best dessert I had for a long time: extremely yummy and not too sweet (quite rare for me as a European in the US). Try it, it's a sin well spent!
Thanks and a double thumbs up to "Jan" and his team!

“Another Bad Experience”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

After a horrible experience a year ago we gave this place another try. The service was poor, the waitstaff were not knowledgeable about their food and not attentive whatsoever. My dinner arrived cold and overcooked. The deserts arrived half melted-as if they were plated 15 minutes before serving (not a good idea for ice cream). I should have known better after our previous experience where we needed to use the telephone to ask the staff to bring us menus and send a waiter over.....after waiting 25 minutes! The overall food quality is also lacking and needs improvement!
