Very good restaurant in Bronxville. Service is always excellent. Can be bistro noisy but portions are big and the food is really good. Phone ahead on weekends, Sammy's is very popular.

Have eaten here many times. The food is consistently good. It is very lively and tables are full every night of the week and planning ahead is a very good idea when you want to eat here. Prices of entrees are competitive and a good value. Outside seating in warm weather is a plus.

We 3 showed up here on a busy Friday night but the Matre'd found us a table in short order. They have a good selection, portions are not too big and the service is excellent. We were in and out in an hour on a busy night. I loved their mushroom ravioli with a great cream and cognac sauce. My... More

This place had great service. Food came out quick. Being a former waitress if you can turn a table around in an hour, you’ve done well! If you read my other reviews I’m pretty critical about service. This place has it down to a science. The food was good and I would definitely go back again.

We have been here before but not in a while. I know they are always busy but I called on a whim on a Saturday to see if they had any openings. The woman who answered told me they had a table for 4 at 7:45. When we showed up they had no record of our reservation. Mistakes happen but... More

Had a wonderful experience at Sammy's Downtown during the recent Hudson Valley Restaurant Week. Inside decor felt warm and welcoming, while the service was very attentive. Especially enjoyed the shrimp bisque and the lemon parfait/gelato dessert. Will definitely be back to sample more from the regular menu!

We're never disappointed after visiting Sammy's! Whether lunching with friends or having a romantic dinner for two, Sammy's delivers. The food is always delicious, service is friendly, and the ambience is warm and inviting.

Love the ambience and the service is excellent. Only one problem, in the evening when we go for dinner it is so dark in the restaurant you can't see what you are eating.

The menu has wide choices, fresh, healthy and well-portioned (not too big). The chef knows what he's doing! The wait staff needs coaching on how NOT to serve. They are waiting around, eyeing your table constantly. Very disconcerting. Getting interrupted whenever you put your fork down to ask if you're done is annoying. The days of eating a peaceful meal...
