The menu has wide choices, fresh, healthy and well-portioned (not too big). The chef knows what he's doing!
The wait staff needs coaching on how NOT to serve. They are waiting around, eyeing your table constantly. Very disconcerting. Getting interrupted whenever you put your fork down to ask if you're done is annoying. The days of eating a peaceful meal and enjoying a deep conversation without disruption is difficult to find these days. My only problem with Sammy's is with the servers here. Intentions are good, but too good.

Our server was great- knowledgeable, helpful and did a great job. Food was average, wine list was the same. We ate here a year ago and it was much better. Not sure what has happened but the quality has declined. I had the rack of lamb and my wife the lobster ravioli. The lamb (medium rare) was unexciting and almost lacked flavor. The lobster ravioli consisted of ravioli and then small pieces of lobster on the plate. Rather misleading and not that much lobster.

Enjoyed Sammy's during Restaurant Week 2013 for lunch. Loved the decor and the service was excellent. The entire meal was delicious! Good date restaurant! Really loved it! Great place to duck in on a snowy Saturday afternoon! Will be returning there. Loved the burger!

Stopped in for the first time. Nice atmosphere, friendly and prompt service. The warm fresh bread with honey butter was fabulous. I ordered the salmon with avocado and crab meat. It was beautifully presented. The salmon was a bit dry/overcooked and was served with thin slices of fresh tomato which for me, does not blend well with fish, I had to push it to the side. I would definitely try this restaurant again.
