Like its partner restaurant, Rosies, a classy place where you invariably get good food, wine and service at a reasonable price. Also nice for al fresco eating/people-watching in spring/summer/fall

Restaurant is cozy and warm. Nice lighting in dinning room. I ordered the shrimp and pasta with baby clams. The meal was delicious when it was served fresh and hot. The gelato was a perfect end to the meal. Our waitress was attentive which made our dinner experience enjoyable. Go went you can, won't be disappointed.

I had an early dinner with my wife and mother-in-law and I thought the food and service was okay, but nothing special.

We had lunch at Sammy's on December 26th. Setting is lovely and staff is most accommodating and friendly. We shared a salad (plenty) and I had the Salmon served with asparagus (excellent-- and the asparagus were firm) Hubby had Veal Parm which was enormous and he ate the whole thing!--it was served with spinach. Although I did not have any... More

We are very pleased with the meal and service each time we have dined here. Last night (it was a "Restaurant Week Special") we enjoyed another dinner at this fine restaurant. Drinks were served exactly as requested. Wine was not ordered therefore I cannot comment concerning the selections.We both ordered the scallop appetizer. It was a good sized tasty portion... More

A little pricey, but very good service and food. Menu could use a little updating, but a popular local spot.

Went with my husband on a Saturday night, first let me say although the restaurant was quite busy the service was great, the food was delicious, the crab cakes are the best I've had, ever, we are so happy that we found Sammy's. Will definitely be back, I would recommend reservations.

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.
