    Laura is a fine waiter. Plus, she knows the value of hospitality to guests, like us. She even laughed at our corny (probably) jokes. Thanks, Laura, and thanks to the entire staff for welcoming us so warmly.

    The service and food was excellent!!! However the air conditioning inside the dining room needs better circulation because I was perspiring the entire dinner embarrassingly… It was not like that on our last visit in July.

    Went for Bar Food and cocktails. First time but a long time resident of PS. it was predictable Nothing special nothing really bad. Basically a good value, 9.00 Well Martini’s, small plates average 10.00 , Lamb Chops, mussels, shrimp, don’t set your sites too high and you won’t be disappointed. Foster Meagher

    Outside seating with over 100º temperature and no A/C or misting or fans doesn't make for a pleasant experience. The food was above average, the wait staff attentive but not observant. We had to ask for ice, pepper, olive oil, etc. , with extra trips for each.

    Third time at Sammy's, celebrating our anniversary. We were seated in the intimate back room on one of the corner banquettes. Unfortunately, next to us was a young woman with two young boys - preschool age. The boy closest to us was engrossed in a video and the woman never looked up from her phone. The video was loud enough for us to hear clearly. When their food arrived (pizza for the kids, nothing for the woman), the boy kept watching while he ate. I excused myself and asked the hostess to have the server request they turn down the video (at least!) but instead we were offered a different table. We ultimately accepted that, but I was disappointed to have to move from my favorite section, and annoyed that this "family" was seated among the more "grown up" crowd of couples seeking a quiet dinner. They could have been seated out front where it is noisier and feels more casual. Our amazing server Mario followed us to our new table, and while it was nice to be by a window, that section of the restaurant was less romantic and quite chilly due to AC. Mario took care of us, comped a glass of wine each, and ensured we got our meals exactly as we wished, even suggesting a combination of two dishes when I couldn't decide. This experience with the other diners was not enough to put us off Sammy's, but next time we go I will check my surroundings more carefully before accepting a table!

    Dining at Sammy G's is always pleasant. It was a bit crowded indoors last night due to the heat outside. Perhaps that's why the food was a little off. Salads were great and the calamari were delicious. Entrees seemed a bit overdone and slopped on the plate with an inordinate amount of sauce.

    If you decide to have a meal at Sammy G's ASK FOR MARIO! He was amazing, thoughtful, pleasant, professional, and on top of us at all times. I've been in the restaurant industry for 40+ years and this man knows his stuff. I'm sure the rest of the staff is awesome too, but Mario really impressed all of us at the table.

    It’s was hot and humid, so not the time to put the home oven on. Sammy G’s is always very consistently good service and food is high quality. We sat on their covered outside patio as it had a few fans in operation. Suggest location consider cost/ benefit of adding misting system during the summer months, like adjacent eateries.

    I’m very angry because the prices listed on the open table Menu were about 30% less than the actual menu at the restaurant. The food and service was very good, but to be misled on the prices does not set well with me on the credibility of what was presented on the website. Don’t need “bait and switch” tactics when it comes to choosing dining options. Sorry!

    It was too hot to eat outside, but the ambiance inside was just as great and we could view the outdoor decorations, fountains, and lights. Humberto and the waitstaff took excellent care of us. Husband has the tower and all of the pieces were cooked to perfection. I had the pasta and prawns which was amazing as well. The Wedding Ball Soup was one of our favorites.

    The food was lovely, the service was excellent, but our experience was made unpleasant by a group next two is that was unpleasantly loud. They had two children who watched a video on their phone at high volume. I know the restaurant cannot completely control the volume of a group but I do think the staff should have asked for the volume to be turned down. It changed the entire ambiance of your beautiful restaurant.

    Everything was delicious. Is too fast service a thing?? The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 was because my friend had just gotten her salad (ordered separately like an appetizer) and taken one bite and they brought out the food. We had to ask them to take it back so she could enjoy her salad first. Otherwise everything was great! The Amaretto and biscotti that was included at the end of the meal was a nice touch.
