Restaurant description

Bringing its acclaimed concept to London, Smith & Wollensky is the UK’s first opening for the acclaimed American steakhouse. S&W is housed in the Art Deco Adelphi building just off the Strand, and boasts an on-site butcher and a dry-aging room to the rear of the restaurant.

The signature dish on the Smith & Wollensky menu is the 24oz USDA prime dry-aged rib-eye, with many other cuts of offer. Other popular dishes include the shellfish platter, and herb-crusted yellowfin tuna. Try the apple tarte fine with salted caramel sauce for dessert: all puddings also come with a suggested wine pairing.

Featuring an abundance of leather and wood, S&W’S design conjures the classic American dining room. Spread over 2 floors and boasting 2 glitzy bars, gourmet ‘snacks’ include truffled mac n’ cheese, or oysters and sirloin carpaccio.

Smith & Wollensky in London boasts an array of private dining rooms, an expansive list of reworked cocktails, and daily butcher’s specials. Find it a 3-minute walk from Charing Cross Station.

    Been several times and always excellent food and service. They certainly do the most delicious steak.

    We dined on the steak and a cocktail offer. The staff were very nice, the restaurant and bar were good. I hadn’t realised we wouldn’t have a choice of cocktail, even of just a couple. My friend who doesn’t like whiskey ended up with a soft drink which was the only alternative. The steaks were lovely, the sauce however was greasy and ruined the meal. As a result I wouldn’t rush back! Or at least I wouldn’t eat on a deal.

    The dining experience was superb from the moment we sat down. The deal is so good as it's not a restaurant I would be able to afford on a regular basis.

    I booked a Special Lunch deal. £19.95 for a set lunch of a cocktail with steak & unlimited fries. Food was delicious and beautifully presented. We opted for the cheesecake dessert and coffee to follow. I had emailed ahead to explain that it was the other half's birthday and we needed to be away for a matinee. We were presented with complimentary bubbles on arrival which was a lovely gesture. Staff very attentive. Lovely dining experience. Would love to return for dinner one night. My only gripe was that our cocktails were delivered to another table and the gent took a sip of one. I watched from my table as the drinks were returned to the bar AND NOT REMADE. I believe we were presented with the same drinks as there was no time to remake before they were presented at our table. Hence I didn't drink my Old Sour Cocktail. It didn't hinder my experience as I don't drink whiskey so wouldn't have drunk it anyway!

    Arrived to a busy restaurant with a great atmosphere. We were party of four on the Star Buy £39 Sirloin steak for two with cocktails. The speedy welcoming professional service meant we were soon enjoying our choice of two bourbon based cocktails. We added two side salads to share with our meal and each of us selected different large glasses of wine from the extensive wine list to compliment the meal. The steak was tender and cooked perfectly to everyones choice with bernaise or peppercorn sauce included. Bottomless chips was not necessary as no one could finish the portion given. The whole experience came beyond expectations and we will return again.

    Excellent. A huge space to fill both upstairs and down, but I was told by manager there that the evenings (this was a Tuesday) are all busy, busy, busy and the week-end is hectic. His parting words were 'an awful lot of beef-cows are used here'! I knew exactly what he meant - but then my food choice, which I'd just enjoyed, was an excellently cooked steak with Bearnaise sauce meal. The ambience is very pleasant and the table service good, attentive but not overbearing. The style of the interior is tastefully 'art deco' with the correct level of lighting and the gentle hum of conversation from ones fellow diners the background to ones experience. The tables are sufficiently far apart so as not to feel crowded - the seating is comfortable. Finally, there's NO dreadful background music/sound, which is as it should in a place such as this.
