“Lovely outdoor seating under the mister.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

We decided to go to Sammy's for a pizza since we'd not been there for sometime. It was actually really good. We had a BOGO coupon which made it even nicer.
I had a BBQ grilled chicken with cilantro & red onion. It was crisp and flavorful.I probably ate one to many pieces but ...... I took the remainder home.
My Mother had a New York Pizza which was a meat lovers dream pizza. Salami, pepperoni, Ground beef & sausage and black olives. It too was very tasty.
We both fleet like our choices were good ones and will return again for more crispy delights.
We had a great gal for our server. She was attentive and had a good sense of humor.

“Excellent array of tapas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2014

It was a beautiful day and we ate outside at a table overlooking the plaza below. We sampled an array of tapas, including Baba Ghanoush, Parmesan Crusted Artichokes with Goat Cheese and creamy herb dressing, and pork dumplings. We also ordered a Pizza Margarita to share. Every item was very tasty and the service very professional.

Half priced delicious tapas and $2 off beer and wine.... Love it! You MUST try the duck tacos. Yum! And the shishiti chilis were very nice. Very good house Chardonnay and Cab. I'll be back!

“Great Pizza and Salads”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

We have been dining at the El Paseo Sammy's for about 10 years. Although it is located in The Gardens shopping center which is often called the Rodeo Drive of The Desert, Sammy's is not a high end restaurant. It is casual dining with excellent pizza, salads and other dishes. Happy Hour appetizers are half price, and they have some really good ones.

The service is friendly and prompt. The manager, Nick, is friendly and works to please you. It is one of our favorite casual restaurants, and walking around the beautiful outdoor shopping center after dining is quite enjoyable.
