We had such a great time here! The atmosphere was wonderful! Love the central wine cellar and the ambience is romantic! We were here for a special birthday celebration and even without our asking, they treated us to a personalized birthday cake to conclude the evening! This was our second special birthday that we had chosen to celebrate here and it will not be the last! Not only are the wait staff knowledgeable and the food delicious, but they always go the extra mile and add that extra special touch that makes the evening memorable! We love it here!

My wife and I were there on the Monday before a Wed 4th of July.
There were 3 other occupied tables in the whole place. We were wonderfully taken care of by the bartender Ryan.
Steaks were tasty and done to our liking. The Artisan cheese board was fantastic. Plenty of good wine to choose from at standard steak place mark up.
I definitely would go back again.

My wife and I are regulars here. It is our gem that not many know of. We always have done dinner but did breakfast this time. We went for my wife's birthday and the staff went out of thier way to make the meal special. Very accommodating, warm and friendly. Not to mention the buffet is outstanding and filled with variety. Go here!

We were nearly the only people in this restaurant on a Saturday night. Our waitress was not at all happy that we were there. We both ordered the filet mignon at $36. And that is exactly what we got. No more no less. The only thing that accompanied the filet was half of a garlic clove. For that price, we should have at least received a salad or a side. The experience was okay, at best. The atmosphere was lovely, however that doesn't even come close to making up for everything else this restaurant lacked.

We used the new Open Table dining rewards (like MCard credit card email)...and the restaurant had to call to figure out how to use it. Thank goodness it worked...it was a great dinner and this made it more affordable....we've only been there for restaurant week previously.

Although I had alerted the restaurant (or merely Open Table?) about the 50 years my wife and I were celebrating, I don't believe they had any idea why we were there. The steak was very good but the asparagus was old and overdone. They did remove that from the bill and because the group next to us was both very loud and drunk, they offered dessert for free.

In general, I should have made reservations in downtown Chicago; at least there I would have felt that the restaurant was worth the trip. This time, however, not really.

Love Sam and Harry’s. Beautiful environment and great food. Had breakfast with 2 friends. Good price, coffee pot at the table, and varied selection. Didn’t want the buffet, but it also looked good. Real expensive for dinner, but nice for drinks on large patio. Surprised service was so slow as the place wasn’t that busy.

Sam and Harry's has outstanding food. They had a grouper special that my Wife and I both had. It was outstanding. It came with cream corn with bacon bits which was outstanding. I had lobster bisque which was very good. My wife had onion soup which she liked very much. It was my Wife's birthday and they gave us a complementary desert. Sam and Harry's is as good or better than all of the major restauarnts in the Schaumburg/Rosemont area.

Excellent appetizers and sides. Onion soup is top notch. Tough to be a steakhouse without offering a baked potato though. Steaks were all a bit tough and not that well seasoned. Great coffee! Mac and cheese and garlic fries are excellent.

I wasn't impressed. The small variety of food wasn't worth the price. Drink pricing outrageous, not even places like Morton' or Chicago Prime or Wildfire drinks are that expensive!! Our waiter was robotic, dead no personality. My mothers day brunch wasn't great. The only thing that made it great was being with my family. Never again go here for Sunday brunch.
I will try dinner sometime in the future.

We went for the Mother’s Day brunch and it was a continental breakfast buffet, set up near their bar, that is offered to the guests of the hotel. It was extremely disappointing and misleading. We left and went somewhere else.

More than adequate fare and generally very good, especially for a "captive" restaurant in a hotel venue. Have eaten here for several years on business trips and with few exceptions, the food is good. Intimate bar at the end of the dining room is nice also.

We had an excellent meal. We had calamari for an appetizer, which was cooked to perfection. Two people ordered the lamb which was also delicious, tender and meaty. The others at the table ordered the halibut which was outstanding. The service was excellent and prompt. We could easily carry on a conversation. We will not hesitate to dine there again.

We had a great time at this restaurant. The food was presented nicely, and very tasty. The service was a little on the so so side. The place wasn't busy, even though it was a Saturday night, but it seemed as if we were putting our waitress out. She just didn't seem that into us. It could have been a bad night for her, I don't know the situation, so would like to give her the benefit of the doubt. We will go back and hope that it will be a better service experience. All in all I would definitely give this place a try.
