Service was slow. It wasn’t crowded so I’m not sure why. Everything took a long time. To receiving our drink order, desserts, then then check.

Nothing bad to say but do make sure you can afford it because it's a little pricier than average

An excellent neighborhood gem that has been there for almost 100 years. Food is always well prepared and tasty and service is professional. Prices are cheap, considering what they deliver. Free parking on the street

Our meal was very good. The pecan crusted chicken was delicious and the garlicy mashed potatoes with it were very good. I even like the glazed carrots and I never like cooked carrots. The salmon was also very good. I like that they have small size salads you can order with an entree. We had the red velvet cake small dessert which was fresh and very good. The apple tart was in the shape of a rose and was very good. No complaints at all. Cannot wait to go back soon.

My friends and I enjoyed a leisurely pace lunch on the outdoor patio on a beautiful summer day. The salad special was delicious and the service friendly and efficient. I think the price of the lunch salad was high.

Usually the service and the food are really wonderful at Sams but this time it felt very inadequate and I was disappointed in the brunch that I ordered Hudson Valley Omelette. My husband enjoyed his steak and eggs, however. I hope this was just an off day and not a sign of things changing at Sam of Gedney Way.

I ordered and waited 1/2 an hour and then reminded them I ordered (after waiting for a friend that went to a different place) They then served me uncooked salmon and asparagus - YES uncooked and the waiter said you asked for your food. Well after 1/2 an hour you think it would have been cooked - as the restaurant was not busy. Since the restaurant has changed owners it is not the same. I have come back and just am done.

We both had burgers, sam classic and salmon--Salmon burger was great, came with small salad and attractively presented, he liked his burger and combo french fries and fried onions crisp and excellent, my sauvignon blanc was good too.

Go there often for casual Thursday nite dinner--it is dependable and NOT NOISY--which is a big plus and food is consistently good.

Been going to Sams for 30 years and in last 4 or so food has improved from OK to very good.

Leave plenty of time for dinner. An hour and a quarter was not enough time, even though they weren’t busy. We had to take our whole dinners “to go”. And one of the orders was wrong...asked for prime rib -got fish. Didn’t realize until we got home.
Ask how much the specials are before ordering.

We felt the experience was very over-priced for what we got. The service and ambience were nice, but I got a petite filet mignon and it was so disappointing. When this entree was placed in front of me, the steak was all the way to one side of the plate on top of a thick gravy, and there was some creamed spinach up against it. The other half of the plate was empty except for an unintentional puddle of drippings, ie. blood, from the steak. I've never even paid attention to plating before until this was set down in front of me. Yuck. It was unappealing from the get-go, and it didn't get better when I ate it! The steak looked and tasted as though it had been baked rather than broiled or grilled. The outside had no char AT ALL so the whole thing was mushy and rubbery. Quite tasteless and unappealing texture. The gravy under it was too mushroomy and unwelcome, and the only side, creamed spinach, was gritty. At these prices, there is no way ANY of that should have been the case. That said, the burrata appetizer was delish and the espresso gelato and carrot cake desserts were enjoyed by all. But I wouldn't go back and I wouldn't recommend it. Not at those prices.

My friends and I had a lovely lunch. The food was delicious and the presentation was lovely. We had excellent service. Our waiter, whose name I do not remember, was very patient with all of our requests. We were checked on several times, making sure everything served was good. We will definitely be back!
