    Pork belly starter was delicious and our salads were fabulous. Probably wouldn’t order ricotta and pepper jelly crostini’s again, it was pretty bland. Enjoyable meal with pleasant service, we would return.

    They were out of an appetizer but wasn’t told until our food arrived. We asked for an umbrella because we were in the direct sun and was told they didn’t have one available. Yet, the table next to us received two umbrellas. We talk to manager about the issues just for feedback purposes and it was as if we fell on deaf ears. We still tipped 20% because we knew there a lot of new people in the service industry.

    Our favorite place to eat and cocktail in Calistoga! Fresh, healthy ingredients presented in inventive dishes, but at the same time comfort food. Terrific craft cocktails and nice wine list. Staff is always professional and pleasant. Don’t skip this place on your next visit.

    We had an excellent dinner at Sam's Social Club and heartily recommend it! Eating outside was lovely! My one very small criticism would be with the hostess who seated us. We were a group of 6 with a reservation at 5:30. When we arrived, the hostess confirmed that we "still" wanted to sit outside and then took us out to a table set for 4. When I reminded her that we were a group of six, she dismissed my concern and said that 2 more chairs could be "squeezed" (my word, not hers) in. I looked around the patio - 2/3 of the tables were empty - and pointed to a table set for 6 nearby and suggested she seat us there. After checking inside, she came out and seated us at the table for six. It was an awkward start to our evening, but the rest of the dinner was very good.

    This is our third time at Sam's and it never ceases to impress. From the salmon on the benedict to a truly unique cinnamon roll, the food is always amazing. The service is always a step above most places and we were so glad we enjoyed brunch here on our way out of town.

    We liked everything we ordered. The pork belly is heavier taste with ceviche at the lighter side that were a great combinations. The salad dressing was perfect on baby green. The burger was a good quality one. Overall, I would go back again.

    Our one complaint was that it took 20 minutes for a server to come to our table. Once we had an assigned server, things got better and our waitress was amazing. The food was great and came out quickly. Drinks were slower and we did not get our cocktail until we were finished with our appetizer. Service here has always been good in the past, so maybe this is just a case of the employee shortage. All in all great food, beautiful ambiance. The host just needed to be more in the ball.

    Our server, Samantha was very sweet, kind and attentive. Unfortunately, they were understaffed and overall service was a bit slow. To be clear, it was not Samantha’s fault and she handles things like a pro and the rest of the staff were very nice and professional. The food was very good as well. So I would recommend Sam’s just be prepared for a bit longer of a wait in the event they’re understaffed.

    We had such a lovely lunch outside. The food and service were phenomenal. They were gracious and allowed our party to have an extended meal with our family from out of town and it meant a lot to not feel rushed. The Bloody Mary and the Churros were highlights!

    We came to celebrate a milestone birthday The service was VERY slow, but worse than that, when our food finally arrived, our prime rib and pasta were cold. We asked that they reheat them, and they were returned warm, at best. We received an apology from the kind manager and a reduction of our bill, but our dinner had been pretty much ruined. If you’re planning to celebrate a special occasion, I would steer clear.

    Our waiter Kevin was amazing! Of all of our food that we ordered, we loved the octopus- best ever! The cold creamed corn soup was delicious. And as Kevin suggested, the churros were crazy good. Thank you for an amazing birthday dinner. The entrees of salmon and prime rib were wonderful as well!

    The food was amazing! We went for breakfast and started with the banana bread. I knew it would be good but it’s better than my homemade recipe! The outside seating is wonderful in the morning. They have options to keep you shaded or with a little sun peeking through. Very photo worthy if you’re into that. The staff was also so kind. Everyone was quick to bring things without me even having to ask (like hot sauce). We’d definitely go back again.

    Attentive service. Great summer panzanella salad. Lukewarm pasta that we sent back only to have it come back just as lukewarm and cold. Horrible steak for $50. All gristle and fat.

    Always spot on with food. Service was exceptionally poor, server took order and never to be found. Outdoor seating needs fans on in the summer. Water to the table should be a lot faster to keep you cool.
