Couldn't have asked for a more
perfecr evening. Our food, our server and the ambiance were perfect."

The Parmesan crisps and the rolls
were delicious. The iceberg wedge was on the small side, but also good. The steak was more than I pay for an entire meal elsewhere and came with no sides. It was very good, but not to the level I'd expect at that price. The waitress was attentive and brewed a fresh pot of decaf for me, plus gave me enough cream for my coffee, which is a rare and wonderful thing. Dessert was very artfully presented and sparse -- the "Chocolate cake" would have been better named "Bite-sized cake cubes.""

We have been coming for a few
years now but for the first time was truly disappointed. We ordered off the three course menu and had the steak and it was not good, besides the waitress gave my grandaughter the wrong steak. My daughter loves your establishment so I thought I would treat her along with my grandaughters and myself, but we were talking about trying another restaurant outside of the hotel."

Food was pretty good, but it is
very expensive for what you get. My pork chop was too fatty as well. Good service and ambiance though."

A nice restaurant hidden in the
suburbs. Great attentive service and surprisingly modern and spacious ambience. The steaks were well cooked. The mashed potatoes were smooth. The desserts were the true winners. The deconstructed strawberry cheesecake is worth going back for. It was so unexpected. Not to be missed! The key lime pie was pretty good as well."

Really enjoyed the experience,
great ambiance, beautiful setting, great outdoor views."

Every year one of my sons gives me
a Sam and Harry's gift certificate. I always look forward to receiving it. This year we saved it and went with friends to celebrate my friend Martha 's birthday. This was really 2 gifts to me. one gift - the gift certificate. The second gift - giving the gift of a wonderful dinner to my friend for her birthday celebration! Who could ask for more!"

The waitress explained to us what
we wanted from the menu.It was very good!We started with calamari as appetizer, kids order steak which was very good,husband ordered fish and I ordered braised beef which was very tender. Overall,we are very satisfied with what we order.Dessert was to die for which was something with chocolate."
Dined on 7/5/2014
Service was excellent steak was
cooked perfectly. The bone in ribeye $45 was the poorest grade if meat I've ever eaten. I've had much better beef from a grocery store. This was not prime and to pass it off as prime is larcenous. I cut up 3 /4 of the steak and gave it to my dog. He doesn't care how tough the meat is ! Went to mortons the next day and had the same steak it was perfect"
Dined on 7/4/2014
We are not used to a "hotel
restaurant" that serves such great food and wonderful service! The pork chop (suggested by our waitress) was an excellent choice...delicious. The filet steak which I had was cooked perfectly and it melted in my mouth! It was a totally wonderful dining experience. Kudos, especially, to our knowledgeable and attentive waitress."

As always, 5 stars across the
board! I had a taste for a skirt steak and theirs is from Niman Ranch. We both ordered the skirt steak and after a while the waitress returned with apologies that they had no skirt steak. Please pick another steak. I asked if they were going to charge us for the skirt steak because the other steaks were twice the price and she said NO, we are going to comp both your steaks and would you like to add a Lobster Tail also comp'd? Amazing! We had Delmonico Bone-In Ribeye steaks with the best lobster tail I have ever had on the side! We Love this place!"

We visited the restaurant last
year and had a good experience. This visit was disappointing. The buffet was out of plates, bacon, syrup and pastry all at once with no one nearby to replace it. We told our server who brought croissants from downstairs in an effort to rectify the situation. This was at 10am. That's inexcusable.I don't think I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone again."

My wife and I enjoy going out to
dinner and visiting Sam and Harry's. We usually go there for special occasions and this was for our 15th wedding anniversary. The food is excellent and we love the ambience and atmosphere, especially the bar and our favorite bartender, Michael. Keep doing what you're doing and we'll keep coming back."
Dined on 6/13/2014
The décor and ambiance is
fabulous. I was disappointed in the meal. The Delmonico steak had a layer of fat that needed to be cut out. The sautéed mushrooms were virtually tasteless. The best part of the meal were the carrot cake donut holes. "

Just an awesome experience every

Best service ever, wonderful

I have been to Sam and Harry's
since they opened. It has been a few years since the last visit and thought this would be a great place to celebrate my daughter's 21St birthday. For four people ( 6 drinks ) my bill was 400.00, I would not have minded if the food was good. The order we had included two of the most exspensive steaks on the menu and they were horrible, large chucks of fat, I ordered it medium and it came out almost raw! We had also ordered crab cakes in the beginning and they wheer the size of two quarters. What ever changes were made were not for the best!!!"
Dined on 5/17/2014
We've been to Sam & Harry's for
lunch and that was really good. So we decided to try it for dinner to celebrate a special occasion. The crab cakes were outstanding but the dinner was just "good." We felt the menu was pretty limited and VERY expensive. For the price the food needs to be outstanding."
Dined on 5/14/2014
Food quality was very good,
however, we were seated in the snack bar for the brunch. Maybe they should not have taken on so many reservations? We were disappointed in the seating otherwise was good. Felt like we were overcharged due to the seating situation. "

We indulged in the Mother's Day
brunch and had a fabulous meal. There was great variety and superb desserts. The staff there could not have been more pleasant. Looking forward to our return."

First time at S&H Adult Friendly u
can Bring the Kids but Y? Steaks were excellent. Outstanding atmosphere. Will be back"

The food, service and atmosphere
was really outstanding. Our entrees (steak, lobster, salmon) were prepared perfectly and really delicious.for dessert, the deconstructed strawberry cheesecake was exceptional. The carrot cake donuts were just okay. The space is beautiful. It was a Saturday night, so it was really empty, but that just made it more conducive to conversation."
Dined on 5/3/2014
Our second visit. It was 7:30 on
a Thursday. Two groups total 25 and our 4. Seemed like one sever on the floor Kitchen was slow, server disappeared. With the huge high ceiling space is empty it is depressing. We might give them one more try at a brunch but not for dinner"
Dined on 5/1/2014
If you are looking excellent
service and the perfect ambience for a relaxing dinner, Sam & Harry's fits the bill. Although pricey, it's worth it! The salmon portion was small, but so delicious. We were a little disappointed with the donut dessert and the key lime pie, though. They didn't match the quality and fresh taste of the rest of the food. Still, we will be back soon."

Even better for dinner. Brunch
buffet is delicious, but it's a buffet."

Everything was just ok. For the
money I would Have liked it to be great."
Dined on 4/12/2014
The food was top notch. I thought
the pricing was high compared to the portion sizes I'm accustomed to at other high end steak houses. The wedge salad was carved from a baby head of lettuce but the calamari was large enough for 2 people. Things that distracted me from the experience: the draft beer i was served was not cold, it tasted about 45 degrees and i had to ask for a new one, which they just served in a colder glass. The other thing that happened was after the appetizers, they cleared the table of everything, including bread, silverware, bread plates and all. I had to ask if we could please keep the bread on the table. They had to reset the table after we were served the main course. Overall though it was a good experience though."

Terrific food and beautiful
layout. The manager needs to hire moe e help or better design the wait staffs seating flow. Our server was all over the restaurant with the tables she was responsible for and at times seemed overloaded."

My wife and I always enjoy Sam and
Harry's. This time we dined with another couple and we were not disappointed. Wonderful service, great steak, full wine list and nice presentation!"

This is a great place for good
food and drinks. It is a nicely nestled within the Renaissance Hotel with other entertainment options available. We had the salmon and halibut which were well prepared. The wine list is very good."

We were at Sam and Harry's for a
lunch during a conference. The food was amazing. It was a great place to touch base with fellow teachers and compare our conference experience. It was a very relaxing lunch."
Dined on 3/6/2014
We went to Sam & Harry's for our
anniversary dinner and ordered from the prix fixe menu. The soup and salad were really good but the entrees were disappointing. The wagyu short ribs were so flavor less they were sent back and replaced with the pork tenderloin with sausage and pork belly.which was better but not what was expected from a restaurant of this caliber. The Hawaiian Ono was good but was a bit overdone and dry around the edges. The wait staff was nice but didn't seem interested in why the beef was sent back and management never made an appearance to ask if we were satisfied. Dessert was great with happy anniversary written in chocolate on the plate (a nice touch). Overall, I'd give this place a miss for the price vs quality."

I knew that the hotel was
beautiful but I had no idea I would be in for a treat at the restaurant. I celebrated my birthday in Chicago visiting friends and family, since I was accompany by children I thought this place would be "safe". And to my surprise I wound up with a memorable experience that cannot be surpassed. The fruit was fresh, sweet and chilled perfectly. My server was polite and patient all while being very attentive. The cook OMG! My meal was perfect there are no other words to describe it.. I had an omelette that was perfect! Fresh potatoes and onions seasoned by the Gods! And an assortment of pastries (brunch dining) I will be back.."

My wife and I periodically go to
Sam & Harry's to have a great steak and enjoy the people that work there, many of whom we've gotten to know. We like the restaurant but we've noticed that the level of service has changed. We used to enjoy the antipasti tray with the assorted breads and olives, but we were told that they no longer do this for customers. Needless to say, a disappointment. However, the meal was very good and the service was great."

We came for the restaurant week
special. The paper said $30 & their menu said $35. They honored the $30 price after I showed the article. I ordered the lobster bisque, which wasn't bad. My main dish consisted of 2 scallops on the plate. Good thing I ate some bread and knew dessert was coming. They were very tastey, but only 2!! The creme brulee was very good. My husband ordered the ribeye steak. It was good, but he wanted a baked potaote and was told they don't have them. He got mashed instead and paid $8 for them. Our server was young & perhaps new - she didn't know the menu as well as she should have. Overall, definitely not worth the money we paid for what we got. Don't plan on ever coming back."
Dined on 2/20/2014
Sam & Harry's is not your everyday
dining place, but for a special occasion (Valentine's Day, Anniversary) we highly recommend it. Hilary loved the bone marrow and rare filet. I loved the 16 oz rib eye and huge, super fresh shrimp cocktail. Sides were brussel sprouts and trumpet mushrooms. Both were wonderful. Enough said. Big wallet or special occasion = Sam and Harry's,"
