Sam and Harry's - Renaissance Schaumburg
Excellent attentive service.Excellent attentive service. Food was well prepared and I especially liked the wedge salad.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOvercoming problemsIn most restaurants, using half-crutches and being hard of hearing pose problems. Moving between tables, putting crutches out of the way, being able to hear what table-mates are saying are challenges. Sam & Harry's layout is just right, the ceilings are high enough to buffer sound, the seating does not tire you out, the staff speak clearly and distinctly. Oh, and the food and wine are wonderful and the atmosphere is restful. Our favorite meeting spot.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHave dined at S&H at leastHave dined at S&H at least 4 times, and it's a good place to dine. The steaks were on point this evening. Perfectly seasoned and cooked to the right temp. I wish we had more attentive service. Our waitperson disappeared for much of our time there and when you are flagging waitstaff, it has gone beyond the point of no return. We waited at the front desk for some time before being seated because no one was there. This restaurant feels like no one's in charge or watching and there doesn't seem to be a sense of urgency or exacting standards for service that should be befitting a good steakhouse. Last time we were here, the service was attentive. This time, no. I don't think the quality of service should be left to the wind like it has.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome!!!Ordered the beef appetizer and the meat was so tender and juicy....Delicious!

Sam and Harry's has become our steakhouse of choice. The service is great and Michael, the bartender, is simply a blast and we really enjoy his company during our visits. We love going to Sam and Harry's and will continue to do so.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAn exceptional restaurant.An exceptional restaurant. Great service and high quality food. Attractive presentation.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a favorite place toAlways a favorite place to entertain our clients when we are at the hotel for tradeshows. We have made this our "go to" restaurant for the last 3 years....using it exclusively for 2 nights in a row each time. We love the food,the atmosphere and great wine list.It's a no-brainer to stay in house and save cab fare, too.
Our most recent visit was somewhat of a disappointment. We were chastized by the host for not calling ahead to say our party of 6 would now be a party of 4. The restaurant did not fill up at any point during our 2 1/2 hour meal, but the service was slow. Not just food service, but drinks, too. The servers are always wonderful, and the food was worth the wait. We felt like there is a lack of planning and management oversight.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place. Atmosphere, service,Great place. Atmosphere, service, food, wine were wonderful! Will go again and again.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent place! While it'sExcellent place! While it's a bit hidden away in the hotel, the food and service were outstanding. Our server was exceptionally knowledgeable about the menu and was very tactful in her manners. The food was fantastic and worth the price. Definitely will return another time.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Holiday Brunch ExperienceWent for Easter Brunch. What a lovely spread.

Highly recommended.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent restaurant insideExcellent restaurant inside the Renaissance hotel. I like to go on the weekends as it is not too busy since this is a convention hotel that is busiest during the week. Love their bread basket with cheese crackers.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific!We love coming here for special occassions, but it is also a terrific lunch spot for relaxed, quiet business meals.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMEat steak here - do it!Went on a Tuesday night, so not a lot of people. Plus, being March, The Terrace wasn't open, but I will definately be back in warmer weather. Love the wood paneling, and quasi art deco theme. Very comfortable seating against a long padded bench. Excellent steaks, attentive and non overbearing service, combined with big pours on the liquor. Way to go guys.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe steaks and sides wereThe steaks and sides were great and the service was excellent.2/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
