    I put on the reservation that it was my husbands birthday and there was absolutely zero mention of it during service. Broccolini needs to be blanched longer as the stems were rock hard. Very thick shelled mini Cannoli are impossible to cut with the spoon provided and messy to try to pickup. We are multiple time customers of Sammy G’s but…..

    We went for our anniversary of 10 years. We had a great server, Carlos. Caesar salad was cold and crisp but needed more acid and anchovy; and $12 without chicken was pretty steep for a Caesar salad. Overall, prices were high, hence my value rating of 3 out of 5 stars. Cauliflower crust bruschetta was fresh and actually quite good but not up to traditional bruschetta on toast points or crunchier bread. My chicken dish with artichokes, capers and lemon cream sauce was very tasty but a bit gooey goppy Italian; it definitely was not sparing in the sauce but it was good; it had potatoes and green beans on the side. My Bulleit old-fashioned cocktail was too strong but large, an acceptable trade-off; it needed more sweetener and more orange. My husband‘s Negroni was good. The complementary amaretto digestif and biscotti was a nice touch as was the Happy Anniversary dessert they provided us free of charge. We paid $126 for two before tip. We used a gift card of $100. We would go back.

    The evening was awesome, the food was delicious and the staff were outstanding. I do have to apologize that we lost track of time and overstayed our welcome. They were very gracious about letting us know they had another reservation for the table and we realized that we had totally lost track of how long we had occupied the table. We apologized but again, they were gracious and we were totally in the wrong. Thank you Sammy G's!

    The best thing about this place is the ambiance and service. Everyone was very nice and attentive, however I did not enjoy my food. The drinks were excellent but food was very bland and flavorless in my opinion. Would I go back? Yes, because of the environment.

    Food was mediocre at best. Service was attentive- band in bar was so loud! All could have been tolerated if food was good - lasagna the worst I’ve ever had. Hamburger between two sheets of pasta marinara sauce poured over the top with some cheese on top of that. Cafeteria food - no better than that

    2nd visit in a month....100% improved !! reservation honored with special table request, 2new WAY NIOCVER way more professional hostesses at check in, really nice guitar music we really enjoyed while eating in main dining room, was so really nice. Appreciated chef preparing food without seasonings. Helpful if this chef and others would stop pouring on cilantro, parsley basil spices etc many allergic too, so couldn't get meatballs and spagetti bec of parsley in meat pre pared. Meals a bit pricey tho even tho its like that most places but a few dishes could be lowered. We felt the "special priced summer menu" not good las time we had as appetizers small servings as is the main portion so they should make it worthwhile or not offer and leave you hungry due to small portions. We appreciated not being rushed put of table to enjoy deserts and music longer as well. Easy parking in back this time, in season gets a bit trickey. Nice bartenders in bar also!
