Had the salmon this time. OUTSTANDING! Also LOVE the duck ravioli.
Food was good.
Food excellent, would go back just for the outstanding meatballs. Nice atmosphere, good for conversation, date night and service was perfect.
Great.! Service and food are always good. Everyone is friendly and patrons feel comfortable.
We were in Baltimore for a very short period of time to enjoy an show at a nearby symphony hall. The restaurant itself had such a cozy feel. The food was incredible. We loved the lump crab meat bruschetta and we both thoroughly enjoyed our pasta dishes. A piece of white cake and coffee topped off a perfect meal. My only complaint is that it didn’t seem like we had a designated waitress and the constant checking in resulted in a rushed feeling. A lovely middle aged woman took our order and checked in throughout our meal . Another younger woman also checked in and brought our food out. The constant checking in made me feel rushed. I paused while enjoying my cake and not two minutes later the younger woman approached our table and asked if I was ready to pack the dessert up. Tables were also constantly being rearranged, most likely to accommodate walk ins. Coupled together I didn’t really get the feeling that I could sit back and enjoy my meal. All together I’d definitely recommend this place and would visit if I ever returned to the area.
Sammy's is one of our all time favorite restaurants. Food is beyond amazing with reasonable prices and the staff is friendly and efficient. We even had a private party here. We come to Sammy's every opportunity we can and ALWAYS before or after a show downtown. You will never be disappointed with your meal!
We have eaten here many times, and it has always been a great experience. This time there was a long line waiting to get in, so many of us had to stand outside. The maitre'd is friendly and more than capable, but could use help in these instances. Most other restaurants we go to have one person taking names, while the other takes them to their seats. He not only took names, but had to walk upstairs and down, while we all waited to be seated. When there is a performance at the Meyerhoff, you might want to have someone with him during the rush.
Sammy takes pride in his authentic Italian food as well he should. A fun spot for a superb meal and excellent wine
Second time eating there. Service was great! Food was great! We will come back again. Very friendly staff. I loved the veal and salmon. And the cannoli’s are awesome.
Love Sammy's!!! Great food, people, atmosphere. Had dinner last weekend before catching a show at the Hippodrome. Everything was wonderful and they made sure the timing was right so we would make the show in time. Thank you Sammy, you have created something really special.
My friends and I had another delicious meal with very good service. I have taken family and friends to Sammy's a number of times, and every experience has been wonderful!
Fabulous dinner - again! Even the bread and dipping sauce to begin the meal was phenomenal.
Sammy's is our favorite go-to restaurant for dinners before or after BSO performances. Staff and servers are friendly, helpful, and polite. Food is wonderful. We dine here a dozen times a year, at least. Love it!
All of the staff at Sammy's are very friendly and attentive. We first discovered the restaurant by accident and have been back five times and have never been disappointed. Our waitress was really fun, the food was good and the prices were reasonable. We will be back.
The kitchen is slow, perhaps because there are so many tables and so many people wanting to leave at the same time. Their website warns you to come at 6 for an 8 pm performance. They're right. If you do, you'll get out in plenty of time, but if you delay you may get nervous.
We go there regularly. Steve is great as well as all the staff. Miss seeing Nick and Lisa
Always a good meal and fun at Sammy’s
Exceptional restaurant. We had dinner with a cousin before a show. The table was ready when we arrived and the staff made sure we would make our show time. Food was obviously made to order and was excellent. Renee was waitress and was great.
We are from out of town, and our first time here but expect not our last. We were all very impressed with our meal and even returned after the show for coffee and dessert with the same great service.
The food was exceptional, fresh, very authentic Italian. I would go back and recommend this place to my friends. Good prices and nice ambiance. All together a good evening.
Great Italian food. Every appetizer, pasta and entree dish were very good. Quite popular and noisy. Not for a romantic evening. A little on the pricier side.
Food was excellent. Service was excellent. Great recommendations from our server...I am sorry I do not remember her name. Overall, we had a very enjoyable evening. Well done.
Delicious food & warm atmosphere! Service was very hospitable and friendly. The menu was very appealing. Can’t wait to go back and try other dishes.
Another wonderful pre-Baltimore Symphony concert meal. Not sure why we never ordered this before, but the Prosciutto Bruschetta was a real treat, and the rest of the meal was filled with some of our favorites (the Risotto Renee and the Seafood Fra Diavolo). Sammy's is one of our favorites in the Mount Vernon area.
Went before a show at The Lyric and they had us in and out with plenty of time for the show. Food was amazing and the portion sizes were perfect.
Terrific! Always welcomed like a friend in your home. Good food n always served hot. No complaints at all.
Overall, positive experience. Food was very good. The server had too many tables but did the best he could (that is, the service was s-l-o-w. Over two hours for dinner on a Sunday night).
2/16/18 Another great performance by Sammy & Matr'D Steve,
We had tickets for a show at the Lyric Center. Looked online for a restaurant. What a find. Wonderful Italian food. We highly recommend Sammy’s.
The food was fantastic and the service was great as always. Our guest said they would definitely be back!
Always happy when we leave Sammy’s! Great food, great people, great price!
We knew we were in good company when Jason Isbell's opening act showed up at the bar to pick up food. (and have a drink) Then some of HIS band showed up.
Fantastic food of all varieties -- we argued about whose taste was the best. all different. All Superb. We visit here and Sammy's Enoteca and always love the wines and food. Just always too full for desserts....
I work in academics and a great place bring prospective faculty -- can hear to talk.
Great place. One of the best restaurants in Baltimore.
We enjoy dining at Sammy's for both their food and proximity to the Meyerhoff. Although our last visit was disappointing (food was below par) our experience was much improved this time. The Squid Ink Paste and Seafood Fra Diavolo were excellent! Service was somewhat confused and lacking.
Great food and service!!!
Entire experience was
rvice. Can't wait to return!!
Wonderful food as always.
This is a wonderful spot to go especially if you are going to a show/concert at the Meyerhoff. Nice neighborhood restaurant with good food. The staff are all very welcoming and helpful.
The cutlery and glasses were greasy and the bread plate was chipped. The food presentation was sloppy.
Wait to be seated was 15 minutes with a reservation. Server got order incorrect. No apologies.
The food here is absolutely delicious. Start with valet parking. Friendly personnel. Cannoli is the best I have ever had. Convient to The Lyric and The Meyerhof. Our favorite restaurant.
