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.

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!
