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.

Very poor service. Items ordered not served and no follow up once main entree served. Food was fine - basic preparation, but ok for a hotel restaurant.

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.

The steaks were fabulous but the sides that we ordered were only soso. Atmosphere was elegant and the service was great. I wish that restaurants would enforce a dress code as a family with three kids came in wearing sweatpants and baseball hats.

What a great place to have a quiet evening or a great celebration! We enjoyed a Valentine's Day dinner date. The atmosphere was comfortable and inviting. The food was amazing. I highly recommend the crab cakes. The lobster tail was delicious. We will recommend this place to all of our friends and family. We are going to visit again soon!

Venue itself was amazing....service was amazing

Food was good, but not fine dinning quality.

I think prices are inflated a bit because it's a hotel restaurant, if this was a stand alone restaurant it'd be flattened by the comps in the area.

I am a past patron of this restaurant, I do like most every thing about it, location, parking, the quality of food and the atmosphere of dining there. However their cocktail prices are on the high side compare to the other upper end establishments such as Gibsons, Mortons, and Capital Grill to mention a few. Bottom line I'll go back again in the future so see you there!!!

We were Sat near loud kitchen despite the restaurant being empty and immediately next to the only other table in our area. They were clearly having a special dinner and putting a group next to them was not hospitable .

Two Food items were WAY salty and we let them know. Chef and server brought out dessert to make amends which was very kind.

Wow! Sam & Harry’s is a hidden gem! My husband and I have eaten at most of the high end steak restaurants in Chicago and other cities when we travel and Sam & Harry’s was right up there with one of our all time favorites!! The service is impeccable, the classic handcrafted cocktails well balanced, and the steak - juicy and charred and cooked to absolute perfection! Start with the lobster bisque and end with the chocolate soufflé and Tiramisu. I haven’t had tiramisu that delicious since a local family made it for me in Rome. We’ve recommended Sam & Harry’s to our friends and relatives and can’t wait to go back.

The WORST steakhouse experience ever. They were understaffed and didn't really care. It took 20 minutes to even get a waitress to talk to is, never got offered a refill on our $15-18 alcoholic beverages, 2 of our steaks were well done instead of medium rare. I told the manager how awful it was and that we would probably never be back and she showed zero remorse. We typically go here for client meetings every few months but definitely never again.

Went to the Thanksgiving Buffet. Let me say our server was great. The carvers of the turkey and ham were inexperienced and didn’t know how to serve it hot. They were carving portions and setting them aside where they cooled off. Instead of telling me they would bring a fresh ham out, he served me tough dried out end pieces. Salad was very good, Brussels sprouts and potatoes were good.
Too bad the meat was cold and rather dried out, otherwise it was good.

Eaten here many times with friends and family. Great food but always quiet and overpriced - particularly the cocktails and wine. $19 for a simple martini and $74 for a bottle of Kim Crawford everyday sauvignon blanc - I would not say this if it were not outrageous. We some how keep coming back - maybe because it is always a safe place to find a reservation at the last minute or because the food is very good as well as the service. I would suggest drinking your cocktails or wine in your hotel room or at home before you come.

Not sure why only a later reservation was available, the place was practically empty. We love the couch seating, very intimate, especially with a couple. But very pricey, and no specific WOW. Good, but not impressive good for a $500 bill for 4! Not an everyday kind a place. Special occasion only.

Did not receive our reservation via open table. did not have table ready. forgot utensils. an order was wrong/returned and still wrong dish. no one asked if food was fine. At end waiter was more cordial. I consider any resturant that charges $30+ entrees to have a better "doggy bag" service then letting your guests do it themselves.

The food was very good but the meal was ruined due to service. We had a large party and we requested seperare checks or seperate totals for each diner. Waitress told us it would take up to 45 minutes to do that. She claimed they use a Micros restaurant system that does allow for seperate checks. She just did not want to do it. Paying the bill was difficult and very time consuming since she did not check back with us once bill was presented. Since I am familiar with the Micros system I tried to explain to waitress how to accomplish seperate totals but she would not consider.
In the end I should have told her we would wait the 45 minutes for her to figure out seperate checks as it took her over an hour to process our payments.
This experience was disappointing and will prevent me from bringing my large group there at our next convention in the spring.
