    We loved the place and would go back. 2 Caveats 1) They automatically add a 20% tip but it's not listed on the menu and you are told after the fact when they bring the menu. I mentioned it to the manager and she was happy to remove it. as far as I was concerned, the offer was sufficient and I left the tip on. 2.) we ordered 2 chiantis by the glass. The bartender was away from the bar, so our waitress poured 1 and 1/2 glasses of Montepulciano, and filled the 1/2 glass with a Rosso. I doubled checked the bottles with the bartender (Kudos) she was awesome while I waited at the bar for the rest of my group. Overall service was a slow. Would still give it another chance!

    Food was excellent. Service very good. This is a good spot for pre-show dinner. Allow 2-3 hours if you don't want to feel rushed. The food is cooked fresh and tastes like it. I even asked for something not on the menu and they made it for me!

    Another fantastic meal at Sammy's! The staff are incredible and work well as a team (special thanks to Giselle for making us feel like family). As for the food, well, it's delicious. The meatballs are juicy and flavorful, the pasta is cooked al dente, and the veal was perfect. Portions are generous. Save room for dessert and a cappuccino (which was a great end to the meal).

    We arrived at 5:30 for an early dinner before attending the Baltimore Symphony Speakers Series at the Meyerhoff which started at 8:00 pm. We ordered our food by 6:00, but it was 7:20 before it arrived even though we had asked about it earlier. When we arrived, the restaurant was almost completely empty except for a few people at the bar. By 6:30, the restaurant was almost completely full. Although being the first table seated, we watched as other tables around us got their food long before we did. There were however, several other people like us who still had not been served and were complaining to the staff about the long wait. As as result, we were rushed, didn't have time to finish the meal and had to take some of it to go. The hostess and waitress were very apologetic and did comp us the drinks we had while waiting for our dinner.

    Food was amazing but we waited a long time. Our reservation was for 7:15 but we got our food at 9:00. Super busy because of the Jerry Seinfeld show which was certainly understandable but we were hoping with a 7:15 reservation that we would have gotten our dinner before 9 pm.

    We had a fantastic experience. The only reason that staffing wasn't a 5 was it was a show night, and it took a while to take our order, so we were rushed to eat dinner so we could leave for the show. I would gladly return and highly recommend. The food was fantastic and everyone was very friendly.

    Food is delicious ( though sausage in a carbonara is a stretch). Service is lively and certainly make every effort to improve the dining experience. However at our visit, you could see how servers were struggling due to what appears to be staff shortages. Definitely a place to dine.

    They were highly over booked and the service was poor as a result. It took over an hour for the food to arrive and we had to take it to go so that we didn't miss the show. The food that was salvageable was great, but you really can't reheat bruschetta or other appetizers that have toasted bread. Very disappointing.

    We went during a high traffic time of the week - the restaurant knew as much as they called to confirm my reservation and recommend that we order quickly in order to ensure that we were able to get out on time for our 8pm curtain. We did exactly as asked - arrived on time and ordered within 10 minutes of sitting down. Our food, however, took 75 minutes to arrive at our table. It was so close to curtain that we were only able to have a few bites before putting it into boxes and rushing out the door. The food was delicious the next day, but the stress wasn't worth it.

    Service was superb. It was a multiple birthday celebration. It was on the spur to go to Sammy’s as we had gathered for a baseball game st oriole’s Park. Rain from hurricane Ian abruptly changed our plans. Sammy’s welcomed our party and made it a special.occasion.despite the lack of notice.

    This will be a one and done experience for me. We arrived at 5:45 for dinner and there were three other tables filled. One waitress took our drink and appetizer order and then she got stuck behind the bar when the place filled up. A different waitress came by and asked us what we wanted to eat, just before 6 PM. This same waitress came by at 6:21 and then asked us a SECOND time what we wanted for dinner as she forgot to put our order in. By this time the place was slammed and our food didn't arrive until 7 PM. This is an example of extremely poor service. The woman who took our food order was all apologetic to other tables who arrived after we did and she said NOTHING to us. We had to order another glass of wine from a table runner and had to flag down another person to pay our check. The food was good BUT beware that their portions are overly large and two people could split a pasta dish as their main meal. I get that places have issues with staffing, but this was a horrendous dining experience and to watch the lack of professionalism and common courtesy on one woman's part was highly unsatisfying. I don't care how great your food is, when you sit at your table with no water, no wine and no food for a half hour, you need to fix the issue.

    We visited for dinner on Saturday, 9/17/22. The restaurant was a bit understaffed but that didn’t keep our waitress from being amazing or our food from coming out timely. About our waitress (I don’t remember her name): I actually fell head first about 3 steps away from the front door. I believe my heel got caught on the uneven sidewalk which caused me to fall & injure the right side of my body. I was in tremendous pain when we went inside. Once we were seated, my friend asked the waitress if she had pain meds while explaining the incident. She quickly went to see if she had any. When she came back she explained that she didn’t have any meds but brought back a clean towel & a bag full of ice. I believed her quick thinking help to minimize the injury. Kudos to her.

    We had our son's rehearsal dinner at Sammy's with 26 guests, September 29, 2022. They set up our table decor for us; it looked stunning, they even added a few coordinating fresh flowers which made it look even better! They let us hang lights up on the upstairs railing. Carly helped us with the planning through every step. We had Valerie as our server, she was amazingly attentive, professional, and so fun! we chose to have our meal served Family Style, the portions were huge and every bite was absolutely delicious. The Tiramisu is made in house and it couldn't be better. What a fun, personnel experience the staff at Sammy's gave us.
