Diner Reviews
  • "Quite UK style restaurant, the food and service are both good quality but not many surprising points. However the environment is good to have a comfortable meal during sunny day."
    dined on 11/04/2014
  • "This is a fish restaurant with a difference. The setting on the edge of the Thames overlooking Tower Bridge makes a perfect setting. The food & service is first class, it is essentially a fish restaurant but there is something for everyone on the menu. At approx £50/head including drinks it was value for a restaurant of this standard "
    dined on 16/04/2014
  • "Perfectly well-cooked seafood, and a reasonably priced wine list, but the dining room feels like the foyer of a dated corporate hotel."
    dined on 08/04/2014
  • "We have eaten at Smiths many times, but never the set menu. Great choice available , even the bread is delicious. I always have the skate and it was up to it's usual standard. Smiths Bocker Glory is worth putting on weight for! The setting is great especially with the view of Tower Bridge in the background Will definitely be returning soon."

  • "Smiths restaurant understands what it takes to give their guests a good dining experience: good food, outstanding service, very nice ambiance, and all this for a very reasonable price. Oh, and the location is fantastic: view over the river/Tower Bridge and Shard."
    dined on 21/03/2014
  • "I booked for 4 and from the moment we entered the staff took care of us. The food was excellent, plentiful and very tasty. Even though price was not a priority, I was very surprised how reasonable the bill was. I will be going back!"

  • "Have never had a disappointed meal. If you have lunch make sure you book early as, they like to get the tables ready in the evening by 4/5pm, so once your coffee arrives you know that they like you to pay the bill and go. Though they accept children at the age of 8 upwards, it would be nice if they offer a child menu, as my daughter was not able to finish her main meal, which I find a waste. It would be also nice, for whatever reason why people are eating at there restaurant, to offer a Glass of wine or Dessert . ie birthday celebration etc."

  • "Overall this is a good place to eat, but I was really disappointed with the service. For example, our waiter came straight up to the table and just said "are you ready to order?". No introduction, no explanation of anything. Just rubbed us the wrong way. Similar attitude continued throughout the meal. When it came time to pay, a random waiter we hadn't seen before came up and processed our card, when our normal waiter was standing close by and could have easily done it."

  • "My lunchtime experience was less good than I've had before. Although the service was nearly as good, there was an "edge" lacking. I was having lunch with my son, when glasses were brought for our wine, his glass was dirty. Although the glass was changed without him having to say anything, it should never have got to the table. However, the main issue was the groups of braying suits, talking very loudly if not actually shouting, guffawing loudly, and eating loudly. Although I can't blame the restaurant directly for this, and the braying suits were clearly spending a lot of money, especially on drink, the loud noise did dominate and spoilt the atmosphere. If that is what Smith's is like at lunchtime during the week, I shan't be back."
    dined on 19/02/2014
  • "The service is impeccable, if a little liberal with the wine pouring (!) and the views are amazing. Looking right out onto the river and Tower Bridge. The set menus are fantastic value for money and offer a wide selection. It's a little industrial looking inside - it's at the bottom of a premium block of flats, slightly on the red brick side, and that reflects inside with exposed brick wall/white walls. It could be a little softer in the decorations but the food is brilliant, beautiful fish. I'd definitely go back."

  • "Just returned from Smiths Restaurant in Wapping with wonderful views over the river. A lovely warm welcome from the Manager and we were convinced from the very beginning that it was going to be a good experience. Food and service were excellent, particularly the fish soup, and the Sauvignon Blanc by the glass was superb. Thank you for a lovely lunch. We have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant and will surely return."

  • "Had a fantastic anniversary dinner. The seafood platter was amazing, very tasty and excellent value for money. Our waiter was exceptional and attended to our needs making us feel at home. They even sent out our dessert with a happy anniversary message. Would definitely go again."

  • "Excellent varied choice of menu for fish lovers and food itself excellent too"
    dined on 05/02/2014
  • "The service is excellent, with all staff very friendly and attentive to your needs. The scallops were cooked to perfection in a buttery sauce and melted in the mouth almost. The prawn cocktail was also very good. For mains we had the lobster thermidor and haddock. Both dishes were good but I felt lacked a little imagination and excitment in terms of flavour. The lobster lost its natural flavours within the sauce which was just ok. The fish was cooked well but it felt like it was just a posh fish and chips so felt a little over priced. Chips were great though, as they were chunky and crispy on the outside. I felt the general atmosphere, whilst pleasant, was a bit too formal."
    dined on 14/01/2014
  • "The view is outstanding and we have eaten here many times. We love this restaurant and the service is fantastic."
    dined on 06/08/2013
  • "Had an amazing lunch here with a great view of tower bridge and the shard. The food was some of the best seafood we've had in Britain and the service was second to none! You do pay for it though if you don't eat from the set menu but it's worth every penny. Will definitely be back here in the near future for more!"
    dined on 25/01/2014
  • "We booked an evening meal for our wedding anniversary and arrived to find ourselves seated at a window table with the most magnificent view of Tower Bridge. The service was very welcoming and helpful and we were made to feel very much at home. The menu is predominantly fish, which we knew was the speciality, and we found plenty to choose from. Perhaps not that adventurous, the menu nevertheless provides plenty of choice of different fish dishes cooked in a variety of ways. The meal was very well prepared and the portions were generous. We would definitely recommend this as a destination restaurant that provides a very high standard of food, generous portions with a very warm and welcoming service ethos."
