    My husband and I dined at Smoked for our anniversary. The restaurant came highly recommended and we were not disappointed. We dined there on a Monday night so it felt like we had half the place to ourselves. The service was great and our semi-private table in the window was superb. We ordered oysters (something with pork) to start. They were small but tasty. I had the ribeye which was cooked to perfection and hubby had fish with veggies which he enjoyed although it was small. We enjoyed the San Samien Sauvignon Blanc with dinner which was really good.

    I was disappointed with quality of the food. The $30+ cheese board was not worth it all. There was no cheeses, one piece of pork belly, a few slices of pineapple, and a few pieces of bread. For that price we expected something more substantial, and some cheeses, spreads, fruits… but what we received wasn’t worth $5. The waffles were extremely soggy. The meal was just not a good experience. We were very disappointed.

    Arrived on time for our reservation but they wouldn’t seat us at a four top table because of other reservations- put us in the basement at a bar sized table that was unstable. The hostess said she didn’t want to put us outside - it was freezing. Finally ended up setting us at the Oyster Bar, which saved the evening.

    The atmosphere at Smoked was delightful and food was delicious, though overpriced for similar quality food elsewhere in Columbia. The service was very slow and our server not friendly or helpful. I would be willing to give the restaurant another try but was disappointed in the overall experience.

    Food was ok, not worth the price. Server was sweet but forgot 2 things out of our order (we had to remind her) 1- oysters came when our main entrees came out, even though she said she would get our entrees out before. The oysters also were very bland nothing impressive. And then 2 - she completely forgot to put the side dish in. At that point we just didn’t say anything (we weren’t charged for the side either) We went for our anniversary. My spouse liked the scallops dish & seafood dip, but overall the food / experience was just not great. This is our second time going and we weren’t impressed the first time either, but wanted to give it another shot. Probably wouldn’t ever go back.

    SmokedResponded on November 9, 2022Hi there, We apologize for these shortcoming. This is not up to our standard, or the experience we try to give to our guests. We hope that you will come dine with us again soon, as we are always working for ways to improve.

    Food is overpriced for the portion. Honestly your fine dining and you can’t give a +$50 entree rice or mashed potatoes included, Food & service were great.

    Enjoyed the ambiance. My server was knowledgeable and very helpful in helping us making food selections. I ordered the ribeye and was very underwhelmed. The steak was over cooked, and bland. The sides were excellent, we had the truffle fries and creamed corn. My husband ordered the bison steak and it was also overcooked and chewy. The smoked oysters were very good.

    Such a jewel sitting in the heart of downtown Columbia. Upscale feel, great ambiance and some of the best raw oysters I’ve had. We were celebrating the 38th anniversary with our parents and they felt extra special! The complimentary champagne was a nice touch.

    Food was good, flavors were excellent, but the seafood was not as fresh as expected. 30 minutes after we ordered, the waitress came back and let us know that 2 of the 6 items were not available. Expected to know that much sooner into the meal. The restaurant seemed very busy and the team seemed pushed to the limit if not overwhelmed. Would definitely give a 2nd chance on a less busy night and I'm sure it would be 5 stars all around.

    They scaled back on the lamb ribs, but the price is the same. I will not be ordering them again. It took forever to get our food and I had to tell the bartender that I needed the host to sit us that took ten minutes. The lobster tails are 4oz and the cost is $20 ridiculous.
