Reviews for Smile Diner

My meeting was running late and I hadn't had lunch yet so this was the closest place to my meeting.

Decent old school diner somewhat near the seedy part of downtown. This place has been around forever. Parking is horrendous here. Not sure what to say. The venue is seriously a blast from the past. I wouldn't be surprised if they used the place to film movies set in the 1970s or 1980s.

I almost missed this place because of some of the negative reviews. Don't let that happen to you! In a spirit of deference and cordiality to other reviewers I will not use comments like effete, spoiled, arrogant or any such words.

Smile gets a good review not for haute cuisine (there is a lovely Marriott a block away where you can get your hash slung by liveried wait staff for $20-$30), full review
