Our experiences with Smolt were mixed, we went twice, about 4 days apart. The atmosphere is comfortable if a bit self-conscious; modern to the point of being severe, and a bit noisy for old ears. The target market is definitely young professionals. Our first time we both ordered scallop and Asparagus risotto with a shared tomato salad rather than the... More

My husband and I had a superb dinner at Smolt during a recent stay in Hobart. Not only was the food presented magnificently it was cooked to perfection. The staff were extremely knowledgable and attentive (but not obtrusively so). The menu and wine list was varied and displayed fresh produce from the local region. All in all this was one... More

We ordered 4 entres Tapas style - calamari salad .octopus ,yellow fin tuna ,prawn tacos -and a side of fried cauliflower- all delicious and... More

Decided to go to smolt on recommendations from others. Had an enjoyable dinner. Started with oysters 3 ways. Shared entree. Tasty. Main courses included squid fettuccine beautiful. My husband had pork belly. Both very nice. Expensive but worth it. Service was good. Wouldn't classify as fine dining though.

High quality food, but we had a small child, no highchair offered and we were put right at back of restaurant so no view from our table and very dark lighting, but service was good and food also, pricing high so expect to pay top dollar. I would suggest great for couples or meeting venue.

On the plus side we didn’t have a reservation but they managed to fit us in anyway (for dinner). The restaurant has a good vibe, the service was attentive and we had a good table. However, the food was a bit underwhelming. I had a "steak with romesco sauce, charred onions, smoked tomato” - the dish looked good but under-seasoned... More

Smolt is a classy restaurant that serves mostly local products. It is of a very good quality and service was prompt. Staff was friendly and helpful. Not a lot of range for kids though but adults who like fine food will not be disappointed.

Very high end food but the place is extremely noisy. And that's with no one sitting near us - just from the ambient music and tables around the restaurant. It's also pretty pricey but the food is good and nice portions.
