“When the pepper mill came at my face...”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

It was fun. Our chef was trying his best at English and I am sure that is why he kept dropping the things he was twirling in the air... the pepper mill was okay but was a little worried when he started up with the carving knife.
Food was good and more than enough. Everything seems to be flavoured with salt and BUTTER. Have one of the fruit punch drinks, quite festive. Meat cooked perfectly and felt like I was in a restaurant on the East coast of Canada... very Maritimes.
Great for large groups.

“Super Atmosphere - Great Presentation - Super Staff - Excellent Pricing”
Reviewed November 26, 2011

Every Sam's Restaurant offers a unique setting for its customers and likewise a wide variety of exotic drinks, main course selections and delicious desserts to top off your meal. Each Chef put on an excellent display of both their culinary skills while preparing some mouth watering; chicken, steak and lobster accompanied by a wide variety of veggies and potatoes. The staff was quite efficient, right there when you needed them and very polite. All walked away from this wonderful restaurant filled with many lasting memories of great food, enchanting atmosphere and talked about coming back again because the price was very reasonable...Thanks For A Super Time - We'll Be Back!!!

“Fine Japanese dining with excellent display”
Reviewed July 5, 2011

We (some entertainers from the cruise ship Ocean Princess) went along for lunch. The food was excellent, especially the Prawn Cocktail which was served in a glass over blue water/ice. The main course we had (banquet-style meal) was beautifully cooked, right there in front of us, accompanied by a magnificent display of tossing the salt and pepper shakers etc: the usual Japanese restaurant display but here, it is done with gusto.

The service was excellent: very efficient, with a professional air, yet friendly.

“Good food and entertaining staff”
Reviewed August 20, 2010

The restaurant is very nice and the bbq was just perfect and served with great care.
When the owner realised we are from Italy he briefly came to us saying that Berlusconi is like Clinton: a big bad boy who likes women and he laughed out loud offering us a beer.
That was the only occasion when I was happy Berlusconi existed :-) Anyway, the guy was very funny. A nice dinner!
