Celebration Dinner

The food and service at this place is awesome. They exceeded my expectations. Besides the food being both pleasant to view and delicious to eat, at the end of the meal I got up from our table looking for a toothpick. When I asked one of the wait staff where I might find one, she asked me what... read more

Sammy G's is on the strip in downtown Palm Springs. It offers great outdoor seating and very good food. Service was very good too!

We stopped in for a late lunch. The restaurant has a great Italian vibe. The wait staff was friendly, attentive, and accommodating. The salads were fresh and delicious. My husband and I shared a pizza, which was large, well prepared, and tasty. The restaurant is also nicely laid out so you do not feel like you are sharing your table... More

Overall the service was good and the ambience was very nice. Inside seating with lots of cushions made it enjoyable after a long drive to Palm Springs. The food is not worth mentioning. It was nothing special. These guys cater to tourists.

We had great food at this place. Of the dozen eateries we dined at during this trip, Sammy's is the only one we went to twice. Authentic food in a great atmosphere. The tapenade was great. Give this one a try.

We had an excellent dinner at this restaurant. The filet and chicken Marsala were very tasty. A complimentary amaretto an biscotti topped off the evening. Or waitress was attentive and friendly. You can't beat dining outside in January with potable heaters keeping you toasty.

We were recommended to eat here and it was ok. I think this is a place better suited to couples. It had some lovely tables and I think could be great but it was not my experience.

We visited based on the reviews but the food was uninspired and tastes like it came from a Prego jar to which much salt had been added! The waiter was obsequious but didn't comment on the fact that most entrees were barely touched. Really go elsewhere for food. The bad at the bar on the other hand were terrific and... More
