Christina, our waitress, was wonderful. The place was jam packed yet she took the time to take care of us and make us feel important.
Everything was GREAT!
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.
This is our favorite restaurant. We love the food, the ambiance, the servers. We always look forward to returning for all of our special occasions.
Nice quite location, good food and service. Steaks cooked perfectly and sides were big enough to share.
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!
Loved it! Food was excellent, as was the service! Made for a perfect Valentines Day dinner with my wife
Service was horrible! Food and drinks took forever.
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.
Had breakfast here last weekend and the food and service were tremendous. I had the corned beef and it was fantastic.
Best corned beef hash i have ever eaten.
Love the atmosphere and food! Great ambiance located in the beautiful Schaumburg Renaissance Hotel.
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.
Nice place but doesn’t have good service. Server was spread thin. Always disappointing to spend a lot and not get good service like you would in most high end restaurants.
Everything was great with the exception of not recognizing it was a special occasion-our anniversary. I specifically marked that on the reservation . A little disappointed but otherwise a very nice restaurant. Loved the parmesan crisps in the bread basket.
Todd and his staff of Debbie and Jose really made this special night of three anniversaries a very memorable experience.
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.
Good Thanksgiving Day buffet. Soup and salad were favorites! We were sat off to the side, so it was quiet, but a little isolating.
Beautiful restaurant and hotel. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. I went for a Thanksgiving buffet meal served and had a wonderful experience. I'd like to return for a date night.
The service provided by our server (Melissa) was exceptional and her dining recommendations were terrific. We also had a chance to meet the chef and since it was our anniversary were given a complimentary dessert.
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.
2steaks took 45 minutes and came out raw when ordered medium
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.
We took my father in law here for a Sunday breakfast, and had such a wonderful time! The ambiance was great, our server was hands down amazing, and the buffet was top notch, especially for the price. Very spacious dining and very clean!
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.
Love the food and great wine choices!
I have been to the restaurant over 10 previous times, quality of food and service typically is better than what we experienced on this last visit.
Poor service starting with the hostess. Our table was not assigned to a server, so it was 20 minutes before a drink order was taken. food is expensive, quality and preparation didn't match the $160 expense for 2. Major car auction convention that weekend, restaurant didn't seem prepared and staffed for the increased traffic.
We had dinner on New Year’s Eve about 9 years ago and we loved the dinner. I promised my husband that one day we would be back for a special occasion. That time came last night for dinner when I surprised him by bringing him back to S&H. Dinner and service were great. The quality of people was disappointing but understood considering the convention and the atmosphere. All in all, it was a good experience but probably won’t be back
EXCELLENT FOOD AND WINE!
Enjoyed very much! Three had the salmon and said it was fantastic. I had the filet with bearnaise and it was the best I've had in a long time. My 86 year-old mother enjoyed herself because she said she could hear the conversation since it wasn't too loud, which is the best we can ask for.
Food was excellent. Server was very attentive. A little noisy because of large hotel guest group
Very surprised that they lack a Cappuccino machine and can't source from another kitchen in the hotel.
Was not even seated on arrival. Couple ahead of us was seated right away and we were told to have a seat after I said I had an open table reservation. Next couple comes in after us and was seated right away while we were still waiting. Made me BRM and we left. What good is a reservation if people without reservations get seated first?!? Just wasted my time.
Service was good but our server was stretched a little too far for this kind of restaurant. Husband had filet which he said was good but not great. I had rib eye, which was delicious. Also gave us a very nice dessert for our anniversary. Overall we enjoyed ourselves and would go back.
Honestly can not say one thing negative. We live in the area and had nothing ready to make for dinner. I RELY heavily on "open table" for last minute reservations. Thank God I came across this GEM!
We have stayed at Renaissance Hotels. However, tend not to dine at "hotel" restaurants when not a guest.
Delighted we decided to give Sam and Harry's a try. The food was of excellent quality (the cheese/meat board with honey is to die for) and the rib eye was locally raised beef, dry aged at a price unheard of!! The deserts were fresh and original. We spent $300 for three; we had a fine bottle of wine, aged scotch, appetizers, full meals with sides (enough food for six if not more) deserts and after dinner drinks. Easily a $600-$1000 bill at any other fine dining establishment.
The service was exemplary. It was chilly inside after coming off the beautiful outdoor terrace. The staff members went to the front desk and offered a blanket!!!!!!!!! Who does that???? We wanted to eat our desserts and finish our drinks in the common area at the fire place. They accommodated us. They checked on us multiple times and asked if they could do anything else to make our evening complete!!!!! Who does that????? We were NOT guests. Not dressed overly nice. Definitely NOT celebrities nor large tippers!!!! (Oh, no family members are employed here!)
I am NOT a "review" person🙄. I NEVER take the time---even when the place is lousy.
Please try Sam and Harry's. I would like to see if it was the one and only time we actually got "lucky" or if this is the norm. We will be back to try it--just to be sure it wasn't a fluke. But, feeling confident it is just a great treasure.😉
