We had a wonderful time on Valentine’s Day. The rose for my lady was a nice touch. Everyone was cordial and friendly. Quite upscale. Every course was outstanding.

On Valentine's Day my partner and I enjoyed delicious food and great service from our waiter, Daniel. I would definitely recommend Samuels to anyone who likes good food with a good atmosphere.

Delicious meal and server was delightful. Nice experience . .. as we could hear each other quite well. Others in the room were quiet and made for enjoyable evening with good food.

Even when we had a reservation we were told we had none and sent us home. Very bad service.

Had a very nice lunch with friend after visiting the Addison Museum. The portions could have been a bit larger. I was not sated, but the food was very good. The server was perfectly attentive without being overbearing.

We go here frequently and usually love the meal. This time something was terribly wrong. Not sure whether it was the waiter or the kitchen, but we waited over an hour for our meals and then one of the four was awful. They corrected it and took it off the bill. We will probably try it again but this was disappointing as we recommended it so highly to our friends who joined us.

I noted on my reservation that it was a special occasion- Birthday ( mine and my husband ‘s). I was very disappointed that this was not at all acknowledged. This was our first time dining there. Food was very good and noise level wasn’t too loud, which is very hard to find these days.

Samuel's is a wonderful spot for a midweek dinner or special occasion. The campus location is scenic and the dining room decor classic and attractive. The food was very well prepared and the service attentive and prompt. Makes for a very pleasant dining experience.

Ridiculously noisy in dining bar area
Hostess would not move us
They need to do something to solve that problem

We had a wonderful time at Samuels. The food was excellent and the service was very good. We like coming to Samuels for special events. We were at a table close to the bar so it was a bit noisy and difficult to carry on a conversation.

Since our last visit ? 2-3 years ago the food has greatly improved.
Your menu is sensible and inviting.....? gone are some of the clumsy
efforts such as ?? ( as I recall) fish smothered in a kind of ratatouille.
We will now dine with you on a regular basis.

Great New Years Eve dinner. Great ambiance and the bill o fare is very New England with service to boot. I’m putting Samuels on my preferred list of dinner places.
