    The patio is so perfect! Hey that is one thing Covid did for us all…..Lots of seating available. Weather was so good we changed from indoor to outdoor dining. The MENU is so incredible. You can find multiple things to choose. Don’t forget to share the Churros for dessert OR about five others that looked so good. Service was excellent. Thank you Angel!

    A lovely place to eat dinner. Food was good. Service was good. I had the salmon, which was well prepared and it was on whipped potatoes. Would have loved to have had some kind of greens with it. The sauce was delicious. My friend had the pork chop which was really very good. They were out of certain appetizers, so we went with the the ricotta with pepper jam & crostinis which we definitely enjoyed. Overall, very good experience.

    We sat in the bar because it was chilly outside. It was fun and the food excellent. The salmon and Brussel sprouts were wonderful. Wine list is a bit pricey but there were selections from calistoga which we love.

    A very nice lunch spot. Great environment and service. Beautiful potato leek soup and schnitzel, but unfortunately the burger was too greasy/fatty for the milk bread bun. Flavor was very good as were the fries and cocktails were lovely- everything is pricey, but was expected in this area.

    The food is so basic and bland. For the Napa Valley and as a part of Indian Springs, it truly is subpar. The prices are not too high, but for the truly boring lacking flavor food, it is very pricey. I so want to love this place as it is a classic dining spot for the area and is truly charming as a call back to eras of past, it's just the food is not necessarily bad but not really worth mentioning....ever. Sorry! I hate to give negative feedback but Sam's really needs to step up it's game.

    We love coming to Sam’s. Our table shared the deviled eggs and grilled octopus for starters. Both delicious. For my entree, I usually order the pork chop but decided to try the NY strip steak, cooked to the temp chef recommends - Med Rare. Steak came out extremely rare and was very difficult through. I love a Med Rare Filet but this was difficult to eat and enjoy. I ate it bc I was hungry and am not a fan of sending food back but it didn’t taste right or sit right with me. The sides were fantastic. Our table ordered 2 desserts to share. Sam’s doesn’t offer dessert options that gluten/dairy free diners can enjoy so I was unable to partake. Overall we love dining at Sam’s.

    Seating diners outside on December 27, in what turned out to be a huge, cavernous and extremely cold tent, is utterly ridiculous and greedy on the restaurant's part. Even with heaters, the draftiness of the tent could not be contained. At one point I saw a server handing out blankets to patrons because they were so cold. I get it during the summer and warmer weather, but not when it's 30-40 degrees outside. I would never have booked this knowing how large and cold this tent was going to be. Plus, the draftiness of the room meant the food was cold upon arrival. The butter on our (tough, undercooked) steaks wouldn't even melt. The mushrooms were hard and weird. The potatoes were okay, as was the puri puri chicken, but just not that flavorful. Our server was good until she wasn't...attentive at first, then seemed to forget we were even there. Although we didn't order it, a "special" pasta for $40 with no more than dried tomatoes, arugula, pine nuts, and some cheese (i.e. no meat, no truffles, nothing fancy here) seems way overpriced, to say the least. This was an extremely disappointing - and very expensive - experience (nearly $100/head). We are locals, but will not return, and will recommend against if asked. :(

    Omg we loved this place! Big, open, airy with lots of natural light. Fireplace adds ambiance. Comfortable bench seating with big fluffy pillows. Food was delicious. We came for a late lunch and had Caesar salad with burgers and fries. The meat was freshly ground (you could tell). They make their own buns and cheese. Ok I’ll stop raving now but we will definitely be back!!!

    We dined at Sam's for dinner and breakfast while staying at Indian Springs. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, beautiful fireplace indoors and firepit outside. The food is delicious and reasonably priced, but the standout was our service. Kevin at dinner was attentive and pointed us in the right direction on wines and menu. Angel at breakfast was a mind reader, anticipating our every need. We'll definitely be back.
