Smith & Daughters
Seriously one of the best options for GF VEGAN food my partner loved it ! Many thanks for your awesome, consistently amazing food and atmosphere
I have been waiting for ever to come here for dinner and it was everything I'd hoped for! The food was so delicious, I bought a non vegan friend with me she was super impressed too. The flavours were perfect, the spiced rum and Apple cocktail hit the spot on a cold Melbourne night! Absolutely stunning decor and friendly warm atmosphere- a must in Melbourne
I'll admit this has become my favorite restaurant in Melbourne when I visit for work.
Having a vegan only menu means I never need to ask 'can you do that without dairy' and are you sure the additives don't have fish due to my allergies.
Sure there are plenty of over vegan places, but always the service is good, always the food is interesting.
My only concern (not 5 out of 5) is that it is crowded to the point of noisy.
We had a fantastic dinner as a last day of holidays dinner. Smith and Daughters has a great atmosphere and the food is amazing whether you are vegan or not.
Great experience at Smith & Daughters. Fantastic and helpful service staff. Ordered the 'Feast Me' option and really enjoyed the mixed dishes we ended up. Great tasting Vegan food even for non-vegans like myself. Definitely worth a try for the food, venue and great staff.
Absolutely delicious!! All 5 of us enjoyed our meals immensely. We were over from Perth for the weekend and had high expectations for Smith & Daughters and expectations were exceeded!! I’m sad I won’t get to have it again for a long while.
Lovely food, (but a bit on the pricey side), intriguing decor, good atmosphere, friendly efficient service. It was very noisy which made conversation between 6 of us, hard work. I’ll be back!
Smith good wine list, acoustics great in a very pleasant atmosphere in the heart of Fitzroy.
Food is amazing. Noise is too loud, can't have a normal conversation without having to yell over the top of the sound of everyone else talking and the music
Fantastic plant-based menu with GF options. Snappy service, delicious food and moody atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit!
Amazing as always!
Great wine and food suggestions.
I love Smith and Daughters but didn't love the new Italian menu, which I think wasn't as strong as the usual menu. It was over seasoned in some dishes and didn't push all its usual boundaries.
We got the feast me for 2 and it was AHMAZING!! Couldn’t rate it enough, each dish was super delicious and got me wanting more! Our spiced apple crumble desert just topped off the night!
Amazing food, great atmosphere, friendly staff! What more could you want? 😊
Loved it! Food was insanely good. Service was great.
Have been coming here for months now. The food is spectacular and the staff are always so friendly. Brought a few friends from Sydney who also absolutely loved it.
Amazing vegan food with fast service and a great atmosphere :)
Great food and service, however the music was too loud and found it difficult to listen to anyone.
Awesome food, awesome staff, would definitely go back.
The best vegan food around with great service!
Always a pleasure to visit for dinner! Small menu list (maybe because I visit too often 😀 ), but almost everything is great!
Service is friendly, just a little noisy sometimes.
We really enjoy our dinner at Smith & Daughters.
The food was amazing and the staff very friendly and polite.
We will come back for sure!
Delicious food!!! You wouldn’t have even known it was vegan. Definitely recommend.
Best vegan food i've ever eaten.............................. .
Excellent food. Not great for conversation as it is very noisy.
Yummy food but so overpriced for the portion size I couldn’t believe how small my pasta was and no veggies or anything with it! Lovely staff and atmosphere though
I never knew animal-free food could taste so unbelievably delicious. Can’t wait to return!
We opted for the feast me option and the waitress brought out everything in perfect order and timing! A great idea as the share food it best enjoyed when you have lots of options. Dessert course finished off the meal amazingly - we were all stuffed!
Excellent food and service. Buzzing for a Monday night when we visited.
Service was really good - would have liked chairs with backs. Our party of 10 had a great time sharing the delicious food.
The staff were excellent! The restaurant space is visually pleasant, a bit noisy for my liking. My chair was unstable (surely in a high-quality restaurant you can make sure the chairs don't wobble - and I'm not talking minor wobble!). But the real issue was that the food wasn't special. Nothing to complain about, but we typically enjoy better vegetarian Italian and many other Italian restaurants in Melbourne (and at home). When the S&D theme was Mexican/central-South American, the food was distinctly better than alternatives and we were strong proponents of S&D. Now, we'd advise people to go elsewhere. Sorry! We had a pleasant night, particularly because of the staff.
Smith and Daughters never ever disappoint, the vodka meatballs are divine and I could eat the fava and confit garlic dip with a spoon forever 🖤
The noise level was so high you had to shout to to communicate with those on the other side of the table. The food I ordered I did not like & the pasta was just that little bit TOO uncooked. Desert: Tiramisu. I think Strega was mentioned on the Menu, but mine seemed to have missed out on that & very ordinary under its heavy coat of powdered chocolate.
Smith & Daughters provided us with the most delectable meals that not only excited our tastebuds, but our visual senses as well. Every aspect of the restaurant was impeccable. You have our done yourselves ladies! Well done!
New winter menu is beyond words! I took my carnie friend who said her opinion of vegan food has been changed forever. We shared the chickpea polenta, carpaccio, meatballs and the fried baby eggplants which all had us drooling and really decent sized servings. Will be back soon to change more minds :)
If the mains are designed to be shared this wasn't explained by the waitstaff, so I had a huge pile of VERY sweet, rich eggplant with nothing else on the plate. The first two bites were delicious but by four mouthfuls in I felt sick it was sooooo sweet. It needed some contrast and balance to be a meal. My husband ordered the bucatini, which came out with a half plate of white bucatini in a white sauce. NO other colour, detail, flavour at all. It looked awful and was incredibly rich, so also needed some contrasting flavours. The potato pave was delicious. Overall, the menu was badly described, badly explained and badly put together. Very underwhelmed. We have been to this restaurant before, and it has always been a pleasant experience. I feel like the early success has gone to the heads of the chefs. So disappointed.
We had a group of 6, 2 of us were vegan. The non vegans truly enjoyed how tasty the food was. Proper meal portions was nice. 1000000% worth the visit, will remember this meal forever!!!
hands down best restaurant in melbourne - vegan or not
Couldn't fault this place! It's got amazing food, lovely staff and a nice atmosphere. If you get the chance to order the pie and ice cream for dessert, it will change your life. :-)
Delicious food - exceeded our expectations! Everything was wonderful but the mandarin chocolate torte in particular was to die for.
