I miss the Smith Commons menu. The Milk and Hiney menu does not include foods I enjoy. On my first visit after the change I ordered the avocado on toast and it was pretty good, so on my next trip I ordered it again and it was terrible. On my most recent visit it’s no longer on the menu. The food has decidedly changed in style and content. Most dishes come with grits which I don’t like.

Unfortunately the late night menu was the only thing available by the time I got there but the food was good. They’ve also somehow merged with Milk & Honey so it’s different than I’m used to. Nonetheless I was pleased with the food and ambiance and would return again.

It’s not Smith Commons any longer it’s called Milk & Honey. The food was good but they need more healthier options. I asked them to cook my salmon in oil as opposed to butter. My husband’s stomach was upset from the entree he selected. He said he wished he had some veggies with it. I had spinach with my salmon but it was such a small amount. In about 3 fork bites it was gone. More veggies please!

This is not smith commons anymore it is actually the Milk and Honey restaurant and menu, which was a little misleading. The food is good (breakfast brunch style food) and the lounge atmosphere is great for date night. We ordered the Cajun pasta and the burger which were both very good and big portions. 4 stars because I was looking forward to the smith commons menu which is no longer available.

Always excellent but sad to hear that it was bought by Milk and Honey - a bucket shop poor fatty fried food menu. I have tried Milk and Honey 4 times ordering something different each time. It is fried chicken or fish on grills and has no value at the price point they ask. So sad to see a very good and unique restaurant go any the wayside to a fatty filler food chain. Very sad as the original chef was very creative. I believe she was from New Zealand or Australia and caught the taste of the Obama's and was instantly a success. She sold out several years ago but the menu was kept alive. Now it turns into junk food with Milk and Honey

I loved Smith Commons! They served the best mussels ever and the spareribs were great. Smith Commons is gone now, replaced by Milk and Honey, a soul food chain. The new menu excludes mussels and spareribs and I am devastated!! I tried lamb lollipops, mushroom fettuccine, and avocado on toast, the presentation was inviting and the taste very nice, but please bring back the mussels!

I’m Not Gonna Lie If I Rate This Place On The First Time I’ve Been Then It Would Of Got A Full Five Stars. However I Went Again And The Food Was Trash, The Upstairs Had Just Gotten Remolded Or Something And Was Very Beautiful; However Downstairs Which Is How You Walk In Reeked! I Honesty Can Say I’ll Never Go Back. (ps I’ve never had a problem with the severs they’ve all been very nice)
