    This was our first time at Smoked. The restaurant had a pleasant feel to it and we were early for our reservation time but were seated right away. We both had the Carolina gold rice and veggies w/ shrimp on the side. The rice was supposed to have asparagus in it, but they were out of asparagus! The other two veggies in the rice, onions and red pepper, were chopped so finely they could barely be detected. The shrimp were very good, but for the $9 up-charge, 4 shrimp seemed a bit chintzy. We also ordered the sea-smoked dip as an appetizer. The hot dip was excellent although the sesame crackers served with it broke apart, with every bite spilling the dip. Our server was great - very attentive! One final word - the only veggie they were serving Saturday nite was brussel sprouts which we both detest. Before we ordered the Carolina rice, we toyed with getting the ribeye but when we asked if we could substitute French fries for the sprouts, we were told no substitutions were allowed! I don’t think we have ever been to a restaurant where we couldn’t mix and match on similarly priced items. What an off-putting decision on the part of Smoked’s mgmt. Finally and maybe most importantly, for the amount of food we received, we thought Smoked was very pricey: $88 for the two entrees, one appetizer and one glass of white wine.

    Service was excellent. Food was so so. We ordered the mussels and for $22 the portion was very small and disappointing although very well cooked. I ordered the Ribeye and my husband ordered the bison cooked medium rare and was very tough and chewy. My ribeye was well cooked but under seasoned. Honestly probably wouldn’t come back for main courses. The charcuterie boards looked great and our cocktails were excellent.

    Wonderful food, great service. The lamb entree was absolutely delicious and everyone we interacted with was pleasant and helpful. The only thing was that the background music was a bit too loud to allow for easy conversation.

    I’m still thinking about this meal. The ambience is perfect. Service is phenomenal. The food is mouth watering. I ordered the lamb and definitely will order it again. My only complaint was that the wine wasn’t served at temperature—it was pretty warm. But that’s me searching for something. Five stars and can’t wait to go back.

    Went for anniversary dinner. Service was very slow. Asked to go ahead and put in some small plates for an appetizer while we decided on our entrees and was told we had to give the whole order at once. Portions are small given the price. Asked for extra bread for the smoked dip we ordered and they legit only brought 1 piece of bread 10 minutes later. Atmosphere is awesome. Service needs work. Food is average but not worth the price. You would be better going to Halls for the money.

    We sat for almost 10 minutes anyone came over. Then when she did, she was less than happy. She then came back to pour our water, poured 3 glasses, one had stuff in it and didn’t have enough for the 4th glass. Our water glasses went empty multiple times. I had to ask for a steak knife to cut my steak - that took a long time to get her. Overall, while the food was good, I wouldn’t recommend it because the service was so bad. For that level of restaurant, I expected much more. I was comparing to Ruth Chris or Halls Chophouse. Not even close!

    Our dinner at Smoked was outstanding. We sat outside in their back courtyard area. The ambience was amazing. Wait staff were extremely attentive, and the food was excellent. A guitar player was there, and the music was great - not too loud. And we finished our meal by having dessert on the couches in the back. Great night. It's a little pricey, but with the ambience, service, and food, it was reasonable. Will definitely be back.

    The drinks, apps, and food were terrific (though we did have one steak that arrived under-done). The service has been a hit-or-miss and I assume it's as much about time of day as anything. We've been there previously and had outstanding service, so hopefully this is just a glitch?

    We booked a reservation to celebrate a special occasion. Out of the entire area, this was the only rest available. When we got there we were the first customers of the day. Plenty of tables open. Now I know why. Out of the few items offered on the Menu, 2 were not available. How can that be at opening? One of those was a salad. Really? Price point for the value was way too high. The interior was a feast for the eyes and well done down to the bathrooms and the ambiance was great. If only the level of detail that went into the interior was put into the food it would be an amazing restaurant.

    This was our “last” official dinner in Columbia as our daughter graduated from USC and we we’re celebrating. We love great food and after years coming to Columbia and enjoying most of the great restaurants, this was by far the best dinner yet! I had the wreck fish, which was perfect, and our family had the lamb ribs and vegetable entree. All outstanding and the service and atmosphere only add to a perfect overall rating. Best in town!!

    Young inexperienced. Servers! One accidentally spilled someones beer all over me even into my shoes. Meat was tough. Finally It was so cold. Maybe came in on a bad night! The owner was very gracious though. Once it is more polished, may give one more try.

    Came here last night for the first time for my wife’s birthday. Sat down at 7:30 and didn’t get a drink until 8:15. We were one of only 3 tables in the entire restaurant. Oysters were good but the rest of the food was subpar to say the least. I had the yellow tail snapper and to be honest it was over cooked and was probably the smallest portion of fish I’ve ever gotten at an upscale establishment. My wife’s steak was cooked perfectly but for the price we could’ve gone down the road to halls chophouse for a better cut of meat for the same price. I’m not one to write reviews usually but I can safely say we will never come back to Smoked. Entire meal was way overpriced for what was served. Very disappointed.
