We enjoyed our dinner under the beautiful outdoor tent, festive and warm. The meal was excellent, unique and very tasty. Churros dor dessert were the best.

We love Sam’s Social and dine there whenever we are in Napa. But this time was even better than usual as we had the best server! Kevin was funny and helped us decide on our meals, he bantered well with my husband who loves to joke around and the food was amazing again. My favorites. The Ricotta appetizer, avocado toast and the salsa they bring out as a condiment is so hot and yummy!

Best prime rib ever! We ordered the devilled eggs for $12 and were shocked when 2 eggs arrived! But they were infused with truffle and totally worth it! Because of covid everyone was outside but they had a firepit, heaters and blankets. Beautiful with lots of tree lights and festoon lighting. Great night.

Brussel sprouts are so good. Tuna sandwich plate is large enough to split. Outside dinning area is well spaced out with your own heater if you need one.

Very sympathetic but during Covid it’s hard to be on top of everything but the quality of the brunch was just horrific for the price. Especially considering that I’ve gone to Sam’s for years and it was always a delight to die in there previously. Also our server was polite but not exactly super friendly. Again I realize these are stressful times but if you’re going to offer dining experience perhaps limit capacity more so that you can really

Wonderful all around experience at Sams Social Club. Their outdoor dining area is heated and very beautiful. Both brunch and dinner was really good. Every single dish was well done, and the shining star of the meal was the churros.

Highly recommend this restaurant!

This was our 2nd time having Thanksgiving dinner at Sam’s and a very different experience. I don’t think it was different because of Covid - the ambience outside was beautiful and the service was great (although they did bring out the first 2 courses and our first round of drinks all at the same time which was a bit overwhelming and not so relaxing). But the menu was fair compared to last time. The rolls were stale - yes, stale - and the Turkey was dry. When I asked if there was a vegan option, they said no and that they couldn’t prepare a plate of vegetables. The kids pumpkin pie was to be served with gelato which we never received even after asking. The Brussels were great though!
We would likely consider another place for Thanksgiving dinner when we come back next time.

Very snobby and pretentious place that likes to make clientele of Color or non-republicans feel ill at ease. Saving grace was Haley the waitress but no Latinx cooks or help here anymore. The food has always been overvalued second rate. I’ve sent pork chops back several times when they were served dried out as beef jerky. But this time might be last for my family that tried to substitute a chicken burger for sam’s hamburger with any fee adjustments required but was only allowed a little
sliver of chicken on a plate with some mashed potatoes. Very few non-red meat choices unless you like sugar like fruit in your salads or want to pay steak prices for an”cauliflower steak.” The remedy: lighten up Sam’s! Hire more Latinx cooks and waiters to reflect your population and local talent, be more diverse in your menu and less rigid. The restaurant outside is one of the most beautiful places to dine but it is no linger worth suffering through your food snd attitude.

The outdoor area was freezing. No outdoor propane heaters at all. They tried to place and connect some small radiator heaters under our table as we waited for our order but the heater never came on until a few minutes before we left. Even then, there was no significant heat produced by these small units.
The food was good, but not worth the price, according to 3 out of 4 of us dining together. My daughter and son in law will not go back, while my wife and I may try it again during the warmer summer months.

Covid-era evening dining, on outdoor patio. The menu was accessible via scanned QR code, which I kept accidentally deleting from my phone, so they gave me a laminated version for tableside. Everyone masked up, and service was attentive. Burger and fries were excellent. However, the butter lettuce salad was a piece of art. We were too full for dessert, really, but we ordered tangerine sorbet anyway. Should have skipped -- way too sweet for my taste, but then, it was a sorbet.

Was way too cold outside in tent. Need many more heaters. Due to Covid didn’t want to be inside as was too crowded and many not wearing mask because eating and drinking.
Waited 18 mins at table with just water till waiter came, had to ask to send. Food tasted good, rib eye was excellent and a huge portion, no corkage fee for first bottle was great. Beautifully lit and arranged in tent but really really cold.

We had the option of indoor or outdoor seating. We chose outdoor and were pleasantly surprised. We sat under a large tent with heaters spaced out and were very comfortable. After cocktails we had the Arugula Salad and Fried Brussels Sprouts which were delicious. We shared the Piri-Piri chicken, which was yummy and had a bit of a kick to it. We ended the evening with the Churros...what a treat!
We were staying at Indian Springs and returned to Sam's Social Club for breakfast twice. More delicious food on the breakfast menu including breakfast pizza, eggs Benedict, and French toast. We will eat here again.

Food was delicious, good distancing between parties inside and outside. Wait staff was knowledgeable. Downside was the charge of $2 when my husband asked for an ice cube for his drink. Really? Soured the experience.

We ate dinner there twice and had two very different experiences. The garden is beautiful, a magical setting with fairy lights and nicely spaced tables. Our meal the first night was delicious, the highlight being the pappardelle pasta special with short ribs and a wonderful, surprisingly light sauce, much more deft than the tomato sauce one might expect. Leek and potato soup was smooth and creamy. Overall the food was quite tasty but our service was really not good and the heater by our table was relit half a dozen times but never stayed on for long, so we were quite chilled when we got back to our room. Since we were staying on site and had family coming the next night, we went back, had a wonderful server (Omar) and a truly delightful meal, although squid ink pasta with clams wasn't nearly as satisfying. However the halibut ceviche was fantastic, and a hamburger was perfectly cooked. So do I recommend Sam's? Yes. But I really realized how much a server can make or break the experience.

The food was outstanding.
We had a reservation and waited to be seated for 10 minutes with no one attending hostess desk, yet signs said to check in there. Restaurant was slow and empty.
Waiter was great. Attentive and fun personality.
Would not order drinks from bar. No bartender and waiter made are Bloody Mary’s, nothing special vodka w tomato juice.

Overall the egg in hole was so delicious I would go back again and again.

Just out for a Sunday brunch and Sam’s never fails to deliver! Absolutely wonderful food. Lovely service and delicious cocktails. I only took off one star because it was really cold and although there were heaters, only a few were in use. And with the plastic covering, when there is wind it creates a real tunnel. Brrr. Again this wasn’t a huge issue and I am tolerant of these times and restaurants efforts to adapt which I totally appreciate but it was cold. Nevertheless it won’t deter my return. The food is wonderful!

We had brunch and it was delightful and delicious. The outdoor seating was spacious and spread out. The avocado toast needed a sauce or vinaigrette or something so I drizzled the butternut squash on it and that was yummy, best soup ever by the way. We also had churros which were so tender and soft in a good way. The deviled eggs were also good.
