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.

    Food and service was brilliant and bookatable special menu at £19.95 was great value. Only critcism is that the offer stated cocktail. It wasn’t made clear that the restaurant would choose what cocktail was served rather than us choose one. As cocktail was whiskey based this wasn’t to our liking at all but no alternative was offered. Think this should have been made clearer on special menu.

    Excellent. We had the internet offer steak which was brilliant, and some extras. These pushed the price up quite a bit but for the quality of food, location, setting and service was very good value. We will definitely go again

    On the £19.50 cocktail, steak, sauce and unlimited fries menu, we were surprised that there wasn't a choice of cocktail, and only bearnaise or peppercorn sauce to choose from, so very limited. However we were able to negotiate a different cocktail, and what we had was very nice indeed. Our meal took a long time to arrive and the fries were missing, but they rectified the situation amazingly well, by apologising and not charging for our additional side dishes, our wine, and offering free dessert too!! The sign of a good restaurant is how the problems are dealt with, and we were more than happy with the way it was handled.

    Cocktails at the bar, put together by guys who treated their craft as part of our experience, were a great start. The USDA sirloin, the main reason for going, was perfect. The staff, both our waitress and her boss, went the extra mile despite the fact we were not going a la carte - though we will next time.
