New Year’s Eve dinner. I had my favorite dish shrimp stuffed with crabmeat and pasta in garlic sauce. Delicious 😋. My family had a great time spending New Years 2020 and the staff was very busy on top of that they had the best service as always. Love Sammy’s ♥️😊

The experience for my family and I was just good. The waitress Adi was sweet, helpful, and very informative. At one point the manager came around and ask how was everything and was also very sweet.
The only complaint I have is with the hostess Tiffany. She is extremely dismissive and rude. As I could understand that it is very flustering dealing with a influx of customers and multiple people asking you questions, I did not appreciate how she continuously dismissed us when we asked about our reservation, and was very rude. She needs to be retrained as she is front of house and sets the tone for customers experience. Apparently it doesn’t make a difference whether or not you make a reservation on open table or not. The wait was not long fortunately but the hostess left a bad taste in my mouth.

Sammy's is and has been a stapled seafood location in City Island. The food and atmosphere were both good and "our" server was very helpful, kind and extremely polite during my dining experience. Yes - I would return to Sammy's and also recommend Sammy's Fish Box to a friend.

I love Sammy’s! Every time we’re in NY we have to dine here. I was born and raised in NYC and have been going to Sammy’s since childhood and it never ceases to amaze me that this restaurant has maintained its high standards for the food quality and service.

The food was lavish and delicious. On a holiday with huge crowds the service was great, polite, courteous and attentive. Parking was easy and convenient. When you go to Sammy's, make sure your stomach is nearly empty because the food comes in abundance.

Sammy's is always amazing. I was sat by the doors to the kitchen and there's also a table where they pack customers left over. I would not sit there again. Too much traffic. But other than the place where I was sat, everything was awesome.

The major issue was having to wait extra 45 minutes when there was an reservation made. Manager made a lot of excuses when this was addressed. Not the appropriate way to handle a issue like this.

The food was great and a good amount for two to share. The restaurant is really nice too. Our waiter was ok. He was a little impatient. And it was too hot in there we felt as though we were gonna pass out. I don’t think there’s AC there or at least not that that day. But the food made up for it all. I would go back but please have the AC on!

Seafood tasted extremely fresh and served very hot!!
Bread and cheese with cornbread and a cold veggie tray was a nice touch. Portion sizes were huge and the service was fast!

My experience was great from the moment we walked in they greeted us and immediately sat us down, it was very busy but the host let me know since we had a reservation we had top priority. We go upstairs and they immediately brought us bread with cheese and cornbread, we placed our orders with our waiter jimmy. Jimmy barley came around he didn’t client service us they way we should have but other waiters that were attending other tables helped us, he never brought the extra salad i asked for but everything else was amazing! Thank you!

Since it was a weekday, the restaurant has less customers when we arrived. However, with the customers present, the traffic was good, and service was a bit faster.

I made reservations and arrived 10 mins before only to be told that my reservations would not be honored because my reservations were made the same day. I have previously made reservations the same day and they were honored. I believe they did not want to honor my reservations because they were crowded and that has nothing to do with me. If you are not going to honor reservations why allow the system to create reservations on line. Definitely makes me look at Sammy's differently.

Horribly overpriced. Beer was cheap ($20 for a pitcher of Stella), but most of the seafood was around $50 per entree and it was not fresh. Everything was smothered in Old Bay to cover up the poor quality. Will never return.

I did enjoy my time there. We were a large group and a square table is not conducive to conversation. Everyone was talking and seem to be having a good time. The food was good, portions large. Service was good. The servers we had did a good job, coping with the noise level.

Even though the food and service was great, thank you to our great and AMAZING waiter Kahn, the prices are ridiculously high and I will not be going back. I could order bread, salad shrimps at the Olive Garden for half the price. I can even go to Kennedy Fried Chicken and get more Coconut Shrimps for 3/4th of the price.. Please consider lowering your prices.

The Alaskan crab legs was great, my hubby ordered the the crab meat stuffed lobster, was disappointed dried out possibly over cooked with little stuffing,,, a few rating points down in comparison to the restaurant next door THE LOBSTER HOUSE.
