Bordering the Grand Union Canal in Little Venice and a short walk from Padington station, Smith’s Bar and Grill is a high-end lounge bar which provides a unique setting if you’re looking to dine al fresco, thanks to a great outdoor terrace just steps away from the water. 

The restaurant, which boasts a wide range of food and drink options, bills itself as a modern British kitchen, focusing on sustainable practices. 

If London weather permits, guests are invited to take a seat outside and if not, the restaurant’s main dining room  provides a spacious, bright and contemporary environment to enjoy the all-day menu. With its large bay windows and plants hanging from the ceiling, the restaurant has a distinctly modern feel - a mix between a classy New York-style bar and a Parisian bistro. 

Smith’s is sure to help you start your day off right with its wide number of selections for breakfast. The menu covers all the classics, from eggs benedict to its full English breakfast, and still has other fun options, like crab sweetcorn pancakes with amarillo hollandaise. Along with this, the bar offers coffees, juices and smoothies, with a couple of cocktails for guests who want to turn their breakfast into a brunch. 

The restaurant offers a set three-course lunch menu during the week. For starters, it includes a choice between the deep fried calamari, the salmon tartare or the soup of the day. For main course, try the flat iron steak served with chimichurri or peppercorn sauce, the grilled salmon, or the avocado and spinach salad with halloumi. 

Smith’s also has a dedicated cheese menu, including a tempting truffle pecorino cheese. 

Little ones aren’t forgotten thanks to a kid’s menu where fish and chips, mac and cheese and mini sausages all come highly recommended. 

For dessert, the chefs stick to what they know works. Ice creams, sorbets and a chocolate fondant are all calling to be tried.

Avoid - Bad customer service


Bad customer service as per other negative reviews rings true. Planned a brunch at Smiths Bar & Grill and SINTILLATE 

Advertised as 90 mins all you can eat and drink. My guests arrived on time but were told they needed to order food within 30 minutes as last orders 4pm.

Waited for 20minutes and they only got served water! They left due to lack of service and the weird vibe they got on the short time to order food. It ruined the birthday afternoon, and what puts the icing on the cake is management did not apologise or take responsibility when I made a complaint via email.

The manager tried to claim that we had 60 mins to order food (which is not true) which is still not 90 mins bottomless. Customer service are hostile, and even the manager hung up the phone on me when he asked for a call with me to discuss what happened. No refund on the deposit was provided and i was gaslighted, made to feel like i was the problem.

Complete lack of customer service and hostility.


Signs of cowboys, book elsewhere and DONT BOOK - plenty of other places that will welcome you with open arms.

Welcome space for meeting up with friends

Had an enjoyable afternoon with former schoolfriends. Not too busy and so able to talk and listen easily to each other. Service was very slow at start, had to request for attention as waitress sat us and then ignored us for a while. Manager took over our service and was very helpful, pleasant and made us feel welcome. We had cocktails and the set menu whoch was good value for money. i asked for a change of the main - switched salmon for the seafood risootto. Chef was happy to accomodate.

Great all round restaurant and bar

Smith's ticks so many boxes when it comes to an amazing dining experience. I went for dinner but had drinks first in the bar area - the cocktails were really good, and the atmosphere was lively. After we had dinner outside on the lovely terrace beside the canal - I had the flat iron steak which was cooked to perfection, and my boyfriend had the seafood risotto which again was extremely tasty. The evening overall was very fun and waiters were friendly and attentive. We'll definietly be back.

I had the fish and chips – was well presented, however a bit on the oily side on the batter. Also ordered the avocado, spinach salad and the avo was not ripe enough and the dressing had no taste…hardly any dressing…a poorly salad. Service very slow but better than last time! Staff need to be more attentive to customers. Some of them looked really unhappy to be there…giving a sad impression of the resturant.
