Smollensky's on the Strand closed permanently on 18 May 2018
Pulling in the punters for more than two decades, this stalwart on the Strand has a relaxed vibe & cheery, accommodating staff. The surprisingly light basement space is smartly decked out, with
a large bar area that’s a popular choice for birthday bashes & leaving dos. A menu of familiar US favourites – think prime steaks, ribs and burgers – is supplemented by
lighter salads as well as indulgent desserts such as Smollensky's famous peanut butter cheesecake. Drinks scour the globe for a hotchpotch of cocktails, wines & big-brand beers, so check the daily happy-hour deals (5-9.30pm). Kid's can enjoy a special kids’ menu, while the grown-ups can enjoy live music from 5-8pm Monday-Wednesday.

It's different from what I previously experienced for an evening meal. We booked an early table for lunch but the place was empty on a Sunday. The selection was food was reasonable but I questioned whether the kids 'fish fingers' were actually fresh, regardless of the fact they were made. Glad the kids didn't eat them. Otherwise the rest of the food order was reasonable (it was definitely better before). Nonetheless, the waitress was extremely pleasant and very accommodating to allow us to get a birthday cake out for a child. All in all, just ok.

3 staff cannot cope with a restaurant full of people- disappointing pre- theatre experience. From being sat at a table we were forgotten - had to attract attention, waited over 40mins for food, no time for dessert, fries were cold, when they were eventually returned I had finished my burger- and I had to chase for this. In the time we were two other couples left as either no--one had been to them or their food hadn't arrived in time.
