    It was a show night so it was very busy. I had made reservations for 6:15 which I thought would give us plenty of time to eat and make it to the talk by 8. As it was we cut it close. We will definitely go again but I will make the reservation for earlier. As it was the appetizer didn’t come out for almost an hour so the waiter didn’t even charge us for that. What will bring us back is the food. Delicious.

    Nothing satisfies our craving for homemade Italian food in an awesome atmosphere like Sammy’s From Giselle greeting us at the door or John’s Negroni from the bar , it just simply feels like home . Start with the signature salad at the table and explore from there. There are no wrong turns on the menu and the wine is priced fairly . The Mt Washington location is bustling with an energy that is reassuring to hope that one of our favorite cafes will remain here forever.

    The service slow very slow. The waiter was dressed Poorly . We were put in the basement when I had a reservation . we told the basement was available and I thought it was a nice route instead it was very cold and empty. I’d like dining with other people in the room. There were lots of tables, just us and another couple. I heard them talking they didn’t like it in the basement either. I felt like they were just trying to get rid of us and stick us in the basement. they should have told us that it was cold. We were very uncomfortable the food was good but to me the ambience and the service are the most important thing I will not sit down there again. it ruined the whole evening. Not sure we will come back, I will not recommend this restaurant under the circumstances . ☹️

    Everything about this dining experience was great. The drinks were awesome, the bread and dipping sauce was the best, house salad was fresh and tasty, the daily special lobster ravioli was fantastic and the desserts were large and the chocolate cake was moist and delicious. Couldn’t have been happier. So yeah, we spent real money but it wasn’t much more than the chain restaurants and the food was so much better.

    So much pressure to order as quickly as possible every time we dine pre-symphony. We accept that considering the enjoyable food and convenience of the restaurant location. HOWEVER, Salad arrived long before the beverages. Our meals failed to arrive and even after asking our server to check, there was no explanation for the delay. The bartender came over to clear our table when we informed him we hadn’t been served. We were then subjected to inappropriate “I told you so’s” from two servers admonishing us for not having ordered sooner. Again, we are frequent flyers here. We had 15 minutes to swallow our meal before rushing out. Perhaps Sammys should return to the limited menu offerings on event nights like they did in the past. This was a most unpleasant experience.

    Can't comment on the food since we never received our order. I used to eat here all the time when I lived in Baltimore and it was great, but they obviously don't have the staff to handle a full pre-BSO crowd anymore. From the front desk to the waitress everything was chaotic.

    Service was a little slow. The server was more attentive to other tables. It was hard to get drink refills and more water. The food runners were fantastic and helped us get the servers attention. They also stopped and gave us water refills!

    Sammy’s is one of our favorite restaurants. It’s where we dine before a show . Walking distance to the Lyric. Food is excellent and very reasonably priced. Julia salad is exceptional as is all of their entrees. Veal is so tender you can cut it with a fork . Their tomato sauce is fabulous . I can’t pick a fave since they’re all great, but I just had flounder francaise and it is not to be missed! The staff is attentive and professional. Also love the ambiance. Forgot to mention the fabulous cake they surprised me with for my birthday!

    Sammy's is always outstanding - warm and caring service, fantastic food and amazing value. Dining there is a perfect accompaniment to any and all performances of the Baltimore Symphony, the Baltimore Speakers Series, whatever's around. My family looks for all opportunities to sample their terrific breads, salads, pasta's and entrees. Their wine selection is also special. If you're extra lucky, you'll be seated in the section served by Val or Carla. So many of Baltimore's "top tier" restaurants can't compete with this wonderful establishment which just gets better and better with each visit. Kudo's and thanks for everything you do.

    Consistently reliable dining experience. Food was great, wine was great. They had gluten free pasta for me which was delicious. One comment though was over eagerness for us to order at 5:45 reservation time. A friend and I had not seen each other in a while and wanted to chat a bit before ordering. Interrupted three times before we actually ordered. We were finished by 7 anyway, plenty of time to get to BSO.

    Everything was very good food wise. Great portion sizes. We were downstairs as requested so it was more quiet and what we wanted ! They never reached out to me to tell me if we’d be downstairs or not.. and I called 2 times as well. The server was okay, very nice, but would put food on the end of the table where no one was sitting. I had to ask multiple times for him to put the appetizers in the middle. When the entrees came out the servers handed us the plates from across the table instead of just walking the plates and setting them down for each person. This is a must in any restaurant, especially when some plates are warm. Ambience was perfect otherwise.

    We've been coming to Sammy's for Xmas Eve dinner for many years, and while the experience has been consistently good and keeps us coming back, the service this past time was quite different from years past. In short, we felt rushed! We noted that the place was not as crowded as it has been -- not sure what the reason for that may be. The servers were attentive, while also being a bit brusque and "all business." Our food came almost too quickly -- we did not have time to enjoy the salad before the entrees arrived. For such an occasion and a meal that was meant to savor, we just did not have time. Also, a few of our entrees (ravioli and a chicken entree) entirely too oily, maybe a bit sloppily plated as well. We love Sammy's and love supporting the business; we hope that this experience was an outlier and not the actual state of things at the restaurant.
