DANCE-DANCE-DANCE!!!

Great venue for continuous dancing! Nice size of dance floor-- wrap-around bar area---with great bar service. EVARO BROS!!---great trio providing 60's/70's/80's material--- all very danceable! Average food menu----but great take-out mussels for the end of the evening. Definitely a repeat!

Ordered a caesar salad and Margherita pizza. The salad was bland and the pizza had kind of a burned crust and also very little flavor. It was mostly cheese with almost no tomato sauce and burned basil on top. I'm sure there is better italian food in Palm Springs. Fun atmosphere though and other items on the menu might be... More

This is my second visit to Palm Springs and my second visit to Sammy G's. Last year I dined alone (I'm an old lady) and was treated like visiting royalty. I was seated outside next to the fountain and was able to watch the sun set over the mountains with a Grey Goose in hand followed by a spectacular cioppino.... More

My wife and I along with another couple went to this restaurant last week. We based our visit on the many positive reviews on Tripadvisor but we were disappointed. Not sure if it was an off night for the chefs but the waitress definitely had an off night. All of us commented on how brusque she was. The setting was... More

I have been here several times. The food is exceptional. My favorite is the lasagna. They have really good chicken dishes too. You can't find a better Italian restaurant in Palm Springs.

Wonderful Italian restaurant with very attentive waiters and excellent food. Extensive menu offering delectable Italian food, cocktails, wine and delicious desserts. I always make it a point to have lunch or dinner at Sammy G's whenever I am in Palm Springs. They serve an outstanding romaine lettuce wedge, that is not your usual wedge salad. All of their pasta dishes... More

wonderful atmosphere and even better dinner! We were told there was a 45 minute wait for the patio, so we chose to eat inside, only to be seated at a table on the outskirts of inside/patio! There was also a gentleman singing through dinner , which was very nice! Highly recommend!

Sammy G's is at the heart of downtown Palm Springs, and, in my opinion, is the best spot to sit and people watch. They have seats outside in a plaza/fountain area, as well as seats inside. Given their amazing location, they could probably serve almost anything and get away with it. So we were absolutely delighted to find that their... More

I ordered the chicken Parmesan and wasn't disappointed! Butterflied chicken breast dredged and fried topped with a yummy tomato sauce topped with cheese.... Mmmmm! Outstanding! It came with some tender blanched green beans tossed with olive oil and seasonings and a couple of roasted red potatoes. We had the sangria that was very tasty and dinner finished with a small...
