Great food. I ordered the poached salmon and it was delicious. I especially loved the carrot soufflé that came with it. My husband ordered seared tuna and it was also great.

I found this restaurant on the CVB website. It's not usually my first go to place for dinning but after reviewing the restaurant's site and other sites, I decided to go. The food was delicious and the presentation clean and lovely. I had an excellent server, who really took care of me. I would recommend that anyone who loves food, go and go soon!

Was very pleased. I made my wife very happy. Went on a Friday evening around 7 and it was not crowded. They put us in glass covered wine cellar booth (thinking it was a special occation because I made reservations and ordered flowers to be at the table)
Great service. Will go to again in the future.

We loved the food! Nice,
We loved the food! Nice, modest-sized restaurant with a relaxed feel. Modern, simple decor and white tablecloths, which give an upscale feeling. We are very particular about food and fine dining, and this restaurant was a real gem. We loved the salad with arugula, kiwi, and pistachios. I had pesto-coated salmon and my husband had the lamb loin, both of which were cooked perfectly, and both of which we enjoyed. The accompanying sides were delicious also. This was our first visit to Spartanburg, and we were pleasantly surprised by II Samuels. We would definitely return if we're ever back in the area.

Took my husband (a self-proclaimed food-snob!) here for his birthday celebration. I let them know it was a special evening, and they didn't disappoint. We were seated in the "wine cellar" - a glass walled room with a table for two. If you request this table, be aware that #1 - it is right next to the bar, which can be quite noisy (we solved that problem by closing the door); and #2 - whenever anyone else in the restaurant orders a bottle of wine, someone is going to come in to get it from the bins. But it still was a lovely, romantic spot. The food was outstanding. I highly recommend!

Prices were good, food was great! Our waitress was nice! It would have been better if music or something to drown out the other people's conversations.

Fantastic Food and Service
The food at II Samuels was amazing and at a very reasonable price too. The seafood farfalle pasta was the best pasta I have ever ate in my life. The service was fantastic we were waited on hand and foot and we had refills on our drink very fast service. This would be a place I would recommend to anybody for a special occasion.

Elegant and delicious
It's a wonderful dining experience, from the salad to dessert. The wine is excellent, the service superb. I highly recommend this restaurant for a special night out, or just dinner with friends. There is live music and an amazing wine list. Enjoy!

Fried Oysters to Die For
I was looking for a nice, upscale restaurant to have lunch and Trip Advisor recommended II Samuels. I was not disappointed.
Although the lunch menu provided numerous light meals and salads, I opted for fried oysters (which came with a Caesar salad). They were extremely tender, lightly battered, and delicious.
Other diners seemed to be similarly enthusiastic about their meals.

We often travel from Chester to meet friends from Spartanburg and Greer.....We have always had the best food, drink, and service. We were very pleased to see so many people there on Friday night. Other times, we have been there, the numbers were low......Keep up the good job....Spartanburg needs you!

Don't Miss this Place
Our fifth time at II Samuels on our way to the South Carolina beaches, and I must admit we look forward to eating there almost as much as vacationing at the beach. The chef has daily specials that will tantalize your taste buds. This time he had a flatbread pizza (appetizer) with chicken, blue cheese and fresh peaches - it was awesome. The pork tenderloin entree was tender and flavorful. We have never had a bad meal there.

Will go back
We had a very nice experience at the dinner. One thing I think should be mentioned on the website and with Open Table is that it is not really suitable for children.We had a 6 year old and a 4 year old. They had no booster chair and the menu is not really one that children would enjoy.
The adults in our party loved it and will definately go back. There are not many upscale restrurants in the area and this one is a real gem!!!!!

Great place for Special Occasions
2nd visit, this time to celebrate our child's straight A report card. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Great little restaurant with great food.

A pleasant surprise
I live in Charleston so I have expectations of most restaurants! In my opinion, II Samuels would fit very nicely downtown Charleston and I would be a regular.

We have eaten at II Samuels many times and never been disappointed.

The only negative
This is the restaurant that we pick for out-of-town guests. However, as someone who must remain gluten-free there are fewer than average offerings. Often I have to order 2 appetizers or a salad and appetizer to be sure to remain gluten-free.

Music and dining
First time at Samuels. Became aware of a musician Paul Bowman......classical guitarist that plays at Samuels on Thursdays. Decided to travel there to see him and was pleasantly surprised by the food. It was half price off bottles of wine night. That coupled with a coupon and great music made the night a real pleasure. On top of it all the chef came out to talk to every table as well as the owner and he bought us desert. Will be back!,

My wife and I chose to eat here for our 5 year wedding anniversary. We got a 5 o'clock reservation so we was the first people there to eat. Since they knew it was our anniversary, we was asked if we wanted to sit in the wine room which was very nice of them to ask. It was a very nice setting for us to be able to spend quiet time with each other. The service was great and the waitress stayed on top of everything. The food was quite wonderful! We will definitely be coming back again to enjoy a wonderful place to eat!!

Two out of four enjoyed the excellent Salmon. One at the table order the Pork Belly and thought it should have been an appetizer rather that an entree.
