Sammy G's Tuscan Grill Ratings and Reviews
Showed up 4 minutes early for a reservation (gave our name and number waiting) and host told us we needed to wait until that exact time of the reservation. That is no problem for us but then she left us standing there. Eventually another staff member came up and asked about us and she asked us if we were waiting for a table for 4 (nope still just 2). The staff member took us in hand and got us to our table. Another group was standing there and had made a reservation but the restaurant could not find it so they sent them away saying they were booked. But the table next to us was open for the entire time we ate. Seemed very disorganized for the type of restaurant.
Service at the table is good but the food just OK. We had other great restaurant experiences in Palm Springs so I think there are better options.
It was a great place for dining! Great atmosphere
3/4 entrees were fantastic! Lamb and pasta dishes great. San Dabs weren’t crispy enough. Kinda dull and forgettable.... but We would all go back as it was over all a great dining evening.
Everything was EXCELLENT! Food & ambiance.
It was Valentines and the restaurant was decorated. At the end of our meal they served a complimentary liqueur/ Amaretto & biscotti to our group and gave the Ladies roses.
Highly recommend! and will definitely return.
With so many great restaurants in Palm Springs we weren’t sure how to choose for dinner tonight. Went with our hotel’s recommendations and then consulted Open Table to come up with this winner! Such great starters, entrees, accompaniments and wine. Super comfortable and fun to be seated out on the gorgeous patio with toasty heaters in Feb! Loved the surprise of complimentary amaretto and biscotti to top it all off. Delish!
Nicely appointed restaurant with beautiful outside patio and high tables with fire in the middle plus regular seating also. Went Sun night and glad we made reservations as they were full. Host very accommodating and moved our seats as we didn’t want to sit close to a walkway and checked with us to be sure we were served quickly. Just be prepared for large portions so you might want to split orders.
3rd time I've been here this winter. We love the ambiance most of all, but the food and service is equally good. We have always sat inside for the mother in law, and always request the cushy bench seating against the wall, very nice! And of course they always end the evening with biscotti and amaretto, such a sweet gesture!
We were staying in Palm Springs for a bike event and wanted to go somewhere for dinner Saturday night after the ride. Made reservations for 9 of us. We were seated inside the restaurant and it was decorated for Valentines Day which was cute. The food was delicious and for the price the portions were very big. Would love to go there again if we are ever back in town.
This is one of our go to stops any time we are in Palm Springs. Food is delicious, service is great and attentive and restaurant is really a nice location. Ambience is great as is the bar area. We have been here with adults only, dined in and dined outside and been here with kids.....all were great experiences. Can't wait to return.
Our waiter was so helpful in our deciding on a wine - the Super Tuscan he recommended was perfect! We ate lighter fare than most of diners, minestrone soup, caprese salad and the antipasta salad but it felt like a full dinner to us - was delicious, fresh! Look forward to coming again and ordering some of the mouth-watering entrees on the menu.
The food was pretty good, but the service definitely left something to be desired. I would maybe return if the options were limited, but I feel like there probably are better Italian places in the area, but maybe not? I am not from the area and only spent a couple days there. The patio area with fire tables did look really nice.
My first experience at Sammy G’s was nothing short of amazing. The food was outstanding. We had the shrimp scampi, seafood pasta, filet mignon and blueberry cheesecake for dessert. Everything was cooked perfectly and tasted great. The restaurant wasn’t too crowded or loud. It was quiet and cozy for our first date. Our waitress took care of us well, without giving us too much or too little of attention. We would and have been recommending this place to our families and friends.
We had a reservation for 6:30. We showed up and they had been kind enough to reserve our table in a beautiful spot outside, but we had been out golfing most of the day , and by the time we were finished I had a chill, and just wanted to be warm. They were fully booked so finding us a table inside took some juggling, but thanks to William he figured something out. It was our first time visiting this restaurant, and we were so pleased we will definitely be back. Thanks for a great evening!!!
We took our daughter and son in law here for their anniversary. None of us had ever been to Sammy G's. The ratings were very good so we gave it a try.
Everything we ordered was excellent. The wine choice was great. The live music on Tuesday night was exceptional and the artist sang a special song to the anniversary couple!
All in all and great night out!
