Sam's of Gedney Way Ratings and Reviews
The special New Year's Eve menu was more limited than the usual menu but still provided lots of good choices. The red snapper and filet mignon dishes were delicious and despite a full house the setting still allowed for normal conversation without a lot of background noise.
We've been going to Sam's for years and there have been a couple of times that we were not thrilled with it. This time we sat away from the main dining area and the food was very good. The service was better then some of the other times. Overall, it was a very nice lunch and we will go there again.
We go to Sam’s every Christmas Eve. Unfortunately this time around the meal was less than adequate. The prime rib had no flavor, fish was dry and even the hamburger was only average. I’m not sure what happened as usually the food is excellent. The manager saw that we didn’t finish our food and comped our desserts voluntarily. I feel bad even writing this because we love this place and the service and ambiance are always excellent.
This was our first time at Sam's of Gedney Way and it most certainly will not be our last. The restaurant is cozy and inviting and the menu choices cover everyone's taste and food preferences. All of the food that my family and I ordered was delicious and beautifully prepared but the thing that stood out most for us was the hospitality. From the manager to the wait staff to the chef.....EVERYONE made us feel so welcomed. There are good restaurants everywhere but Sam's of Gedney Way is a good restaurant that knows how to treat their guests.....and that's a rare find.
Thank you all at Sam's of Gedney Way for a beautiful experience.
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.
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.
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.
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!!!
Come to Sam's often and have reviewed before, always positively - which is why my group keeps coming back to Sam's. Wait staff always so pleasant and never rush us out. I meet OLD friends from different locations and we stay awhile to catch up on each others lives.
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!
