Cozy restaurant in downtown Scranton similar to big city establishments. Service was excellent and the food was done to perfection. I had the ahi tuna and my wife had the veal. Both were prepared in a unique way that was interesting to see and delicious to taste. I would definitely go back...

What wonderful red snapper—with clams and squid and a light red brandy sauce. The vegetables with it were perfection. We always enjoy your attentiveness and care for detail.

We were passing through Scranton and looking for a nice meal after a long day of driving. Good recommendations on Open Table and on the recommendation list at our hotel. All the reviews were spot on. Good cocktails, good wine , great and knowledgeable owner and server and most of all good food. Will definitely return should we find ourselves in Scranton, PA.

My business partner and I were working in the area and thought we would try this place. Benny was working the bar and was an excellent host. Food was great, good taste and temp and the gentleman singing in the back room on the piano just added to the experience. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Average plus. Price and portion size do not match. When a pasta dish is over $15 it should be abundant.

Me and my wife had gone to Sambuca for our anniversary dinner. The service was great from start to finish . We were greeted and seated immediately by the owner , Benny. Not very often you get such personal service like that from the owner! His entire staff was very professional and attentive. Both of our dinners were outstanding. We were even treated to a special anniversary dessert along with the piano player playing happy anniversary! I highly recommend Sambuca Grille! 5 stars!

The crab bisque was superb, crab was fresh and had the taste of crab that I had as a child after crabbing at the jersey shore. The veal was tender and cooked perfectly. The sea bass was surprisingly thick, the Cajun spices were a wonderful compliment to the mild, moist fish and spinach. The baklava was gooey and flaky, but I wish it was made with honey and had more nuts.

Four of us went out for dinner tonight to celebrate a birthday. We just had a totally enjoyable experience at Sambuca! The restaurant staff were cordial and professional. We never felt rushed. The timing for our water, drinks, appetizers and entrees was just perfect. We were able to relax, enjoy each other’s company and enjoy our delicious food. There are plenty of great selections to choose from on the menu. I ordered the veal, which was perfectly prepared. It was tender with a delicious, delicate flavor. Everything on the menu is freshly prepared, so we all enjoyed our food whether it was veal, pasta, or seafood. Even the salads were fresh and crisp. When the check came, I have to say, it was reasonable. Thank you, Sambuca, for a delicious meal and an enjoyable birthday celebration!
