I have dined at this restaurant before and enjoyed it so much that I decided to bring my mother for a birthday lunch. She doesn’t usually dine at restaurants downtown so she had never been. We all really enjoyed and she was glad I brought her. The food was great, the atmosphere was so nice, and I love the decor. We will definitely be returning for our special occasions and just because.

Great food. The chopped salmon salad was delicious & I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys salad & salmon! The blackened grouper sandwich was one of the best kept secrets in town. Great wines by the glass.

Really enjoyed my meal, did not like that I bought a bottle of wine and it came to the table in a decanter. I would have like it to come to the table in the bottle and then poured in the decanter. Besides that I’m enjoyed my meal.

I would recommend Samantha’s but our waiter was horrible!! He really gave a bad impression of the restaurant so I most likely won’t be going back.

I have lunch at Samantha’s often with girlfriends but this was a date and AR Rep Theatre night for my husband and me. We always love Samanthas, Spencer our waiter was great with suggestions and my Salmon salad was delicious along with a couple of Old Fashion cocktails. My husbands lamb chops were a little overdone but he said they still tasted great. We will definitely come back very soon as we thank you for making our date night special.

Samantha's never disappoints. The service is excellent and the atmosphere is very metropolitan. The asiago cheese grits are a Southern girls dream and pair well with the bacon-wrapped tenderloin skewer for the perfect late-night meal. Add the pom-pear martini, and you're in food heaven. Yum!

I have been to Samantha's several times for customer dinners and lunches. It's a favorite because they always deliver superb food. Recently we had the special of blackened grouper on grits and asparagus with a scallop and it was absolutely amazing.

The staff was awesome, from the hostesses to the waitress. They were perfect. We ordered the appetizers: shishito peppers-excellent but weird to eat just dipping in sauce and eating a pepper, and $9 was overpriced, okra (special)-amazing, fried green tomatoes-amazing, and the spicy sausage, cheese and pickles and bread tray-amazing but not enough to share between 4 people. All were excellent! A little pricey for the amount given but really good. The wine I had, moscato, was perfection. It was my birthday and nothing special was done, except they did tell me happy birthday upon arrival and my waitress did as well. I wondered why it even asked on the reservation, but it’s probably bc the hostess called to tell me ahead of time if I brought a cake with me, they’d charge $20 since they knew it was my bday. So that was awkward, bc I hadn’t planned on it. I could tell it was awkward for the hostess calling me too. Again, she was so nice about it. Main dishes we had were: Grouper special-it was fantastic, but it cost $42 and we didn’t know that until we got the bill, Bone in pork chop dish was excellent, sides were $4 each and chipotle Mac n cheese was good but a little dry on sauce, baked potato was excellent, grouper tacos fell flat, no sauce, just wet corn tortillas, grouper that was just ok, cabbage slaw had no sauce, so basically it was gross, I just picked the grouper out and ate it. It was super bland. Then the steak and tater was ok, it was medium rare as it could be, the sauce covered the steak so had to scrap it off. It was just ok. Wasn’t horrible but not what was expected. Now the best part was the desserts. We ordered 4 and they were all delicious. So overall it was good bc the staff made it so, but for the money $260 plus, I expected better main dishes. Overall a 3. Probably won’t go back.

I’ve never had a bad experience at Samantha‘s until this last weekend. It really wasn’t a bad experience the service was extremely slow and there wasn’t many in there and it took so very long to get our food and we were there at lunch. The food is normally amazing and I was not impressed at all this last weekend the chicken was dry my stepmother didn’t get the right thing and once again like I said the service was extremely slow. It was really frustrating because I was there for my daughter‘s birthday

Service great, the evening’s “special” was lack luster and overpriced. Red snapper over unseasoned pasta with Brussels sprouts for $38. Birthday celebration information was included in the reservation but they do nothing except if you order and pay for a dessert they will write HBD on the plate.

We made reservations for a group of 12 and were seated at a great round table. We loved the round table because it drove conversation for all participants! The food was wonderful and the service at Samantha's is always amazing! We will request this table for future larger groups! Everything was perfect!

It’s our favorite date night restaurant in LR. We’ve had great service and food each time. There is always a great fresh fish special and the Leige Waffle is the best dessert. I do recommend snagging a reservation on the weekends but if you can’t, go anyway and grab a seat in the bar!
