My friends enjoyed the menu, and loved what they had. Desserts were different and absolutely delicious. The Christmas decorations were festive and added to our enjoyable lunch. Sam’s is a favorite for us.

started out very good, was greeted and seated with a friendly host. It wine Wednesday which was plus. Wasn't overly hungry so just got wine and apps. Then the waitress disappeared. We waited for about 20 minutes before we had to flag the manager to get the bill, all the tables next to us had to do the same thing.

I've been here several times and am always happy. Menu is good as well as the food. The noise level is low which is great. So many restaurants are so noisy these days. Also convenient parking.

We had to wait an unacceptable amount of time for our meals - with only 2-3 tables there and we had to remind the waitress that we still had no food as she was walking by. Then things were forgotten on our order and we had to again wait. The half apologize was not what we had expected being that we have been frequenting the restaurant for almost 30 years.

There was a very loud and rude table of women that made it almost impossible for us to even speak ourselves- we are aware is not the fault of the restaurant.

You always know what you are getting at Sam's. Sometimes, the service is too fast, sometimes not fast enough, but the food is always as expected - good, a little interesting, something for everyone. Local go-to place.

There were four of us for a weekday lunch. We were seated promptly; the service was excellent. The menu had a nice selection of choices. One of us asked to customize one of the specials, which was done as requested with no fuss at all. The restaurant was not crowded and the noise level was very low which made it very pleasant and easy to have a conversation.

Food we mediocre, it was empty for brunch on a sunday at prime time, service was awkward. There has to be something better for the price, which wasn't insane, but also much greater than the value.

The place was loud, service not great, steak not impressive. Overall I find this place to be overpriced. It’s very loud, crowded, servers kept on numbing into my chair. This is even though my reservation requested an out of the way table.

I am a frequent visitor of Sam's on Gedney Way and love the food, the service and the atmosphere. I live in Somers but do not mind the drive to White Plains because I know I will always be happy with my meal. Thoroughly enjoyed the "beet" theme for Restaurant Week and enjoyed the whole lunch, especially the pumpkin cheesecake for dessert!!!

What we like about this restaurant is the quality of the food and the service. Nice varied menu. But the best thing,is that it is not a noisy,rowdy restaurant. You can talk to the people at your table,and actually hear them. We all enjoyed our meals!

Haven't been there in years. Decided to go with a friend. We had wine, squash soup which was bland, lobster bisque which was so so and we each had "shrimp scampi". I guess we both didn't realize it was with pesto over linguine (who ever heard of that anyway) and my friends dish was swimming in pesto that she only ate the 6 medium size shrimp for $24 each. It really had minimal taste and we were sorry we ordered it. The best was the dessert. Service was fair as the waiter I believe came only once to see how we were. Maybe their lunch is better but this dinner for $99 was really a bust!

Just one suggestion for the future. My friend eats only fish or vegetarian and while there is always salmon on the menu, It's the only fish available (not seafood). It might be a good idea to add another selection to the menu from time to time.

I absolutely L-O-V-E Sam's of Gedney Way! The food is delicious...the price is reasonable...the location is fantastic...but, what separates Sam's "great" from another's "good" is the staff. Julie was our server and she was friendly, courteous, and professional!

I suggested this place for brunch for a lunch date on Sunday. The brunch is simply delicious and for reasonable price, includes A classic mimosa or other. My date loved it, he had heard about it for a long time and had never been here. Great value and delicious with excellent service.

Instead of the steak wrap we ordered chicken wrap and it was absolutely delicious. The service was wonderful, everyone was friendly, smiling and an absolute pleasure. We ate in the screened porch area and it was a delightful experience. We would not hesitate to tell friends to try it, although I know it has been in White Plains for years, it was new to me and I've been back twice since being introduced to the restaurant three weeks ago.

We ate outside under Sam's canopy and had the room almost exclusively to ourselves. The waiter was attentive, the service was fast and the food was excellent. We frequent Sam's as it's one of our favorite places to relax and enjoy easy conversation while dining outdoors. It's a bit was frenetic and noisy inside.

Actually, everything was great...the food, the service, the ambiance. The reason why I can't give this restaurant a better overall rating is that, despite specifically asking for a decaf espresso and despite a decaf espresso was on the bill, we were not given a decaf, proven by my husband's inability to sleep all night. He doesn't have caffeine past 5pm. Whoever is in charge of this should know that a mistake like that can make a customer extremely unhappy.
