  • "We went to Sammy's Downtown at 8:00 pm on a Sunday evening. Our waitress infromed us shortly after being seated, that the kitchen closed at 8:45 on Sundays. We did not realize this, and felt a bit pressured to order. My husband's filet mignon, and daughter's veal stew came perfectly as ordered, and they were delicious. I requested a light preparation of the Sole. I ordered quickly, and only requested a no butter, low fat dish with vegetables. My fish came out covered in a thick butter sauce that I could not eat. They were very accomodating and offered to prepare the fish the way I wanted it, without the sauce, no butter, and steamed vegetables on the side. It was delicious and well prepared. We will definitely return."

  • "We took my mom for an early dinner and had a great time. Mom walks with a cane and the staff saw us approaching and opened the handicapped accessible door so she would not have to climb a stair. The service was great, informative and unintrusive. Our party of three had an arugula and pear salad which was big enough to share. The stuffed mushroom appetizer was good but needed a little more seasoning. Everyone enjoyed their entrees. I guess my only wish is that the food would be more adventurous. While the food is very good after you have been here a few times the menu seems a little boring."

  • "Nice atmosphere, very good food, very good service and reasonable compared to Manhattan restaurants and just a short drive away if you have a car or wish to take Metro North to Bronxville. In a charming village in which to walk, weather permitting."

  • "I love the fish here and the saffron risotto. Generous portions and always fresh. It is the best restaurant in Bronxville. I have been here many times but last night I had the Fillet of Sole … pan-roasted in chardonnay wine, finished with a pomegranate buerre blanc drizzle, served with saffron vegetable risotto and it was amazing!"

  • "We'd been to the restaurant in the past and not thought too highly of it. This time, they went way beyond. Food was delicious - the ravioli stuffed with short ribs highly recommend. Wait staff attentive as were the secondary staff. Noise level pleasant without being either dead or overwhelming. We will return!"

    Dined on 6/25/2013
  • "The service and food were lackluster this time, perhaps because it was a holiday. Will give it another chance, because it hasn't been disappointing before."

  • "We had a lovely lunch at Sammy's to celebrate my friend's 43rd birthday. Food and ambiance was great. We're both in our 40's and were likely the youngest patrons in the restaurant. It's definitely a "ladies who lunch" spot. Worked great for us, but expect a more formal and less hip experience."

  • "Stuffed mushrooms were just okay-I ate two and waited too long for our entrees (empty restaurant.) Asked the waiter where the food was, she said she was waiting until I finished the app before bringing it out. She assumed I'd eat it all and so the entrees came out cold. Communication please! Sent my salad back-the bland salmon & shrimp had a layer of oil -salad was soaked. Heard the chef yell in the kitchen about it. Chicken sandwich was dripping and messy-fries were oily and obviously pre-fried and just given a hot oil bath before being served. Had to keep asking for plates to be cleared-wasn't offered dessert. Waitress had tacky see-thru black tights instead of slacks. Go for dinner instead and ask for waiter Andre-he's a pro."
