The food is just ok, small bites so don't come here if you are really hungry. It's overpriced for the quality and the amount of food. Salmon sandwitch is very good, but 15$? Egg sandwich and grilled cheese pretty average. Mimosa is 12$. The stuff is not so communicative. For e.g. we ordered grilled cheese and extra toast thinking there... More

We stopped there for the breakfast. We order the smoked salmon and the almond butter toast. It is a fine food and we enjoyed it. The quantity are not big, you might be hungry if you eat a lot. It is not a inexpensive restaurant. The place is charming and unexpected.

We go for breakfast, they have scrambled eggs and baked eggs, whatever that is. I ask for eggs over easy"we won't do that" what? Won't do eggs over easy, no explanation no smile nothing. So I got toast, they can do that, along with warm orange juice and cold coffee. The only warmth coming from the place was the OJ.... More

Positives: cozy, nice ambience, good drinks, seated quickly. Negatives: inattentive service (bottomless coffee but never offered a refill, had to ask twice), overpriced for what it was - average for New York, but too much for the quality ($15 for a very average bagel and salmon/cream cheese, $10 for the smallest egg sandwich in the world w/rubbish packet ham and...

We were visiting friends and looking for a low key dinner spot that would not break the bank - and The Smile was just that. From the appetizers to the well portioned entrees and wine, everything was excellent. The goat cheese appetizer was my favorite. Additionally, the brisket was some of the most unique flavored meat I have had in... More

Most fabulous dinner in softly lit romantic restaurant on bond street. Whole evening was amazing. We were celebrating our cousins' recent marriages and the entire meal added the perfect backdrop to toasting theIr happiness.

Really enjoyed this low key restaurant. A strong hipster vibe but still really neat place. Definitely recommend the goat cheese appetizer along with the meatballs. As everyone else recommended, you can't go wrong with the brisket.
