All of the food was awesome. There was a serene outdoor setting with wildflowers and agave on the hill. The cocktails were better than expected and I definitely look forward to coming here again.

We have been to Sam's many times for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food is basic, but beautiful. The wait staff is always friendly and accommodating. I love sitting out on the patio to dine and to sip one of their lovely craft cocktails.

We loved it. The waiter was very attentive and also very patient with her grandkids. The children’s menu was wonderful and the adult food was absolutely superb. We also loved having a bottle of water at the table that we could fill her own glasses if we ran low. They even gave the kids some crayons and fun wax sticks to play with. Overall a wonderful experience

We had a lovely lunch. The location (outdoor dining) is quite lovely & our food was very well prepared. Covid precautions were spot on. Lunch was a little more pricey than in my home county, but it is in the Napa Valley, so not out of line given the location. We will go back.

Been coming to Calistoga to soak and relax most of my life. The restaurant experience there is the cherry on top. Get to Sam’s early for egg in a hole! Yum!

Excellent food at a moderate (for Napa Valley) price. Entre $20- $35, kid friendly and very casual. We are locals and have eaten here many times and intend to continue to do so. Cal and Cheryl Knickerbocker

We just had our Mother's Day at Sam's Social Club. The food was excellent and beautifully presented and all came out of the kitchen at exactly the same time! Our waiters were sweet and funny and efficient. My mother never wants to go anywhere else.

The service was very slow (45+ min to get food, had to ask multiple times for a high chair), and it was hot under the outdoor tent (not much airflow). Normally our experiences have been better than this, so maybe was an off day. Food was delicious as always.

We ate dinner here with another couple after a whole day of wine tasting and this place did not disappoint! With the olive trees in the backdrop we felt like we were in Europe. The tables were spaced with plenty of room between them throughout the dining area so we felt safe perfectly safe and comfortable. The service was exceptional as was the food and drinks. I will definitely be coming back every time I'm in Calistoga!

We were late for lunch due to traffic. Our waiter Dylan assured us the kitchen would stay open for lunch for us to order. The Eggs Benedict were delicious as was the Burrata salad. Dylan was friendly and his service was timely. Delicious cappuccinos and dessert to end our meal.

For some reason the restaurant no longer allows dogs outside. The state expressly permits dogs to be at outdoor dining facilities so it’s the restaurant’s choice to not allow. We were here as recently as July 2020 and had no issue. One would think that since we’re moving as much as we can outdoors due to COVID, the hospitality industry would try to be more accommodating.

Always a beautiful restaurant. After getting a reservation a couple weeks in advance had the tiniest table for two facing the servers work area. Not great. Some of the food was very good other not so great. They rarely change their menu and add new items. The seafood fettuccine my daughter said was excellent. The green salad was terrible. Some weird sprouts, a little lettuce, a paper thin piece of radish, no flavor nothing to it and almost inedible. The halibut is very good but served with roasted fennel and onions. Would be much better with rice or potatoes and a nice vegetable like green beans or broccolini. Had to order sides of green beans and mashed potato's.

I must admit I was expecting more from the food. The artichoke was tender but very oily. The aioli sauce was ok but needed more garlic and flavor. The chicken sandwich was good but nothing to keep me coming back. The French fries were outstanding and so was the latte. The service was superb and properly paced for our 1 p wine tasting down the road..

Everything about Sam's was wonderful except a few things with the waiters and the wait. We did have a birthday dinner and a breakfast the next morning. The food is very good, as is the setting. The waiter we had at both meals were not very attentive even when there were only a few tables occupied at an early breakfast. During dinner one guest wanted a lemon for their water and the waiter brought a slice with a bare hand and slipped it onto her water glass edge. Also the food was served on top of the menus that were left on our table. Though these were minor things, the lemon incident stayed with me in this time of covid.

Went for brunch, so delicious. Would totally recommend the breakfast pizza (but would recommend splitting!). Service was good, but pretty slow, considering there were only a couple of other tables.

The front host woman was not very friendly. Our server was working extra hard and was very nice but had too many tables to manage. As a result service was very slow and a bit chaotic. The main area under the tent had music piped out and was too loud interfering with the otherwise potentially nice outdoor dining experience. The food was delicious. Thank you.

Food was delicious, with a nice selection of appetizers and entrees. Unfortunately, it took forever for our food to come out, which felt odd since others were getting their food in a timely fashion. By the time we got our food, the restaurant was empty. We skipped dessert because the restaurant was closing by the time our food was done.

We have dined at Sam’s several times. Once seated, we were provided with water immediately. However, our server did not come to our table for over 20 minutes. This was disappointing.

Food was good but nothing special. Presentation was not well considered, so although the salads were good and healthy and ‘as advertised,’ in the end it felt over priced. Service was excellent. Outdoor seating was very well considered: spacious, elegant, fresh flowers....

We are a local, St. Helena family. I brought my Spaniel with us for lunch for outdoor seating in 95 degree heat and the host told me that I couldn’t have my dog and suggested to put it in the car. Yes, in 95 degree heat. Who suggests to put your pup in a car in 95 degree heat? Not cool. The server was awesome as well at the bus staff. Brought me water for the pup that I put in front of the business and the $140 lunch for 4 I spent worrying about her. A guy walked in to the bar shirtless but I couldn’t have my small pup sleep at my feet outdoor? Ok...

Fest time to dine at Sams Social Club. Great setting, loved the surrounding area. The hostess was quite rude when I didn’t want to sit in the corner beside several stored patio heaters. She was rude again later on when we asked her a question. We waited forever to order and then it took 45 minutes to get two sandwiches. The food was very good and as described. Could be very special.
