we've been visiting this place for quite some time but wanted to share our feelings about it. if you're looking for a little taste of Greece then this is the place. Always consistent in taste and portion. Always fresh. I love the fact that the same people have been working there for years. they know us when we walk in.... More

Food was delicious, especially the gyros! Yummy pita bread too. Service, however, was disappointing. The server was friendly as all hell so no complaints there, but never checked up on us and ran away as soon as she set our salads and entrees on the table. When we walked out after we paid our check, she was talking to other... More

Samos was always a regular dining spot for us when we lived in the area. We would take out of town visitors and they always enjoyed the local family owned restaurant. Waiting in line and finding a parking spot were always a challenge. The service was always pleasant and the food excellent. Greek salad, gyros, lamb skewers, baklava, home made... More

We had to wait a very long time- over an hour. Thankfully we live nearby and could come back. The food was absolutely delicious and very big portions. The lamb chops were to die for and their homemade salad dressing was very good. Also love the fact that it's BYOB- the first time in a long time going out to... More

We've been dining a Samos for years and they never fail to delight. The portions are large, so it lends it self to dining family style. Last night the three of us shared the Samos Special Salad with Gyro. Their house-made dressing really makes the salad, and the feta cheese is fresh an slightly soft--just perfect. We also ordered the... More

Arrived for dinner and was seated and served water in under 5 minutes flat. The restaurant was very busy, but wait staff was on top of their game; they're fast and friendly. The Greek theme is lost in the decor translation, but it's a comfy little space. The flavor profile lacks Greek authenticity, but it's fairly decent..more American than Greek.... More

Stopped in for a late lunch/early dinner around 3pm on a Wednesday and found that our favorite dishes at this much loved place tasted way off. This wasn't Greek cooking. What happened? Substitute cooks in the kitchen? Where were the cloves, all spice and cinnamon in the moussaka? Instead, they seemed to have been replaced by chili powder and hot... More

Samos is by far one of our favorite restaurants & definitely our favorite place for Greek food! If we lived closer we'd probably eat there at least once a week! Our favorites include the tzatziki dip served with warm pita bread (love that their tzatziki has super thin cucumber slices in it!), tiropita (yummy cheeses layered w/in filo dough), Greek... More

They do not have the most complex fancy greek food nor do they have some of the traditional old style greek dishes on a regular basis but for my money you can not go to a more consistent quality greek place in the city, I go every time I return home to visit family. Be advised it is cash only

A neighbor, who is a chef, recommended Samos, and I'm glad that he did. Samos is a Greek restaurant located in Greek Town neighborhood of Baltimore, just south of Eastern Avenue. Samos is a charming, well-run restaurant, where we were welcomed upon arrival and attended to immediately. The tables are small and close together, but not uncomfortable, just cozy. Our... More
