Samoset Resort treat

The Samoset is a lovely place and we frequent it when we are staying near Rockland. The wood-fired pizzas and other itms in La Bella Luna and Enoteca are very good. It is a good fun place to go at the end of the day.

Saltimbocca + creme brulee - delicious birthday dinner! Kids had placemats to color on within minutes of sitting down. Fast service, too.

We started with a generous Antipasto, then added a Meatball Panini and a Rosemary Chicken Focaccia. All were prepared in the open kitchen, where we sat, and could not have been better.

we were resort guests and could only get a reservation for 9:45pm. The wait staff in the lounge were great, the lady we had in the restaurant itself was the worst. Forgetful, didn't really care about our experience, disappeared for long periods of time with a 7 top. My veal was terrible, I had a bite, and left it on... More

My wife and I spent 4 days at the Samoset Resort and ate several meals at La Bella Vita restaurant. The breakfast buffet was wonderful, light lunch fireside was enjoyable, and evening dinners were amazing. We loved the atmosphere; the food was delicious and presentation was impressive - and even though they were very busy, the staff were very friendly... More

Had brunch recently with my wife and mother-in-law to celebrate the holidays. The ambience was outstanding along with the food and selections. The hotel is beautifully decorated and very festive. Service was personable and attentive. We are locals and this is a great benefit of living in the area!

Dined here by chance, since we did not feel like venturing out, during a partial week stay at the Samoset Resort for a family vacation. We ended up eating here every night as we found this place to be great in all aspects including the view, service, food quality, and options for small plate dining. If you stay at the... More

Excellent food and service. I enjoyed both breakfast and dinner. During spring/summer/fall, eating lunch on the outside deck is a must do experience for the views.
