The food was excellent, butThe food was excellent, but the service was very, very slow. It was a good 10 minutes before anyone came up to the table after being seated and then another 10 minute wait after ordering a glass of wine. Given what we thought was two very necessary hours before a show, still required us to just about run to the theater.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently GoodWe've been going to Sammy's now for several years on the recommendation of a friend. So far, we've not been disappointed. The serving staff are attentive without intruding on your privacy. Because of our experience here over the years, we plan on having Sammy's handle the rehearsal dinner for our son's upcoming wedding.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe usually eat here afterWe usually eat here after BSO at Meyherhoff. It is an easy walk. Food is always good...tho service sometimes is spotty. On this past visit however, Renee gave us excellent service and the food was delicious.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother wonderful mealWe've been to Sammy's several times, and it never fails to delight my wife and I. We usually reserve it for special occasions, but if we lived closer I'd make it a more regular event. The food was great and the service was attentive without being obtrusive.
We will definitely be making several more return trips to Sammy's.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat atmosphere, snooty staffI've been to several wine restaurants (although this is an italian restaurant with a wine list), and yes, most wine drinkers are not sommeliers nor do they claim to be but the wait staff repeatedly corrected my pronunciation loudly and in a condescending tone when I attempted to order my glass of wine. We also received the wrong glass for another order. We ordered the syrah blend and she brought out a cab sauv, assuming I didn't know what I was ordering. The waitress seemed a little frazzled and that made us uncomfortable with her handling our orders. However, the food was good and the atmosphere was amazing. I really enjoy the atmosphere but the staff leaves a little much to be desired.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMDuck RavioliTo die for: duck ravioli! I have brought my family many times to this amazing restaurant. Good wine, awesome pastas!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMLunchFood great, ambiance great and sound level perfect. You can actually have a nice business meeting here for lunch and not have to worry about others hearing your conversation. Portions big and they even have a vegetarian lasagna that is outstanding. The desserts were a little pricey though -$10 for a piece of cheesecake -REALLY???5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMKudos to the Chef!We are never disappointed by our meal at Sammy's. The staff is so friendly and we always feel welcome and end with a delicious dinner!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful pre-event dinnerWe have been to Sammy's now several times prior to events at the Meyerhoff and the staff works very diligently to make sure you get a quality meal and are out the door on time for your event. Sally's salad and eggplant appetizer is our favorite but the house salad rivals another local favorite, the Chip salad. Val is the best waitress! She is friendly, always has the authentic Italian way of discussing the menu, is quick and attentive. Only downfall was that the meatballs we ordered never made it- will try again next time!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMcreative, delicious food increative, delicious food in a comfortable setting with attentive service5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat find!Within easy asking distance from the Amtrak station, we have been coming here for an early dinner for years. The food and service is simply great as is the wine list. This is a great find and I can only say great things about the xperience.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food,easy access to meyerhoffFood was great, extensive menu selections, service very attentive. Great atmosphere, especially with our seat upstairs overlooking the main floor, although floor plan was a little tight. It does get very loud though! Server was very attuned to the fact that we had a 930 show and was efficient. As we were leaving we noticed they had an outdoor dining area and we would most definitely go back in the summertime for that!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe perfect place for dinnerThe perfect place for dinner after the theatre. Foodxwas out of this world Italien!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMUnfortunately they did notUnfortunately they did not have the wine that we wanted. We were told they are changing some of the details for selling wine. The substitute was good so that was what mattered in the end.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat atmosphere, deliciousGreat atmosphere, delicious food, walking distance to Lyric and Myerhoff.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
