    Food & Entertainment

    Most of the reviews I read are absolutely incorrect in one aspect: The atmosphere upstairs is as good and ever better than downstairs! Owner David Zimmerman made the decor service food music and all better! By the way, he sends all the best young crowd to really party UPSTAIRS!

    Sammy's basement

    I totally agree with the reviews that mention the entertainer guy Dani being amazing! I come to sammy's often and a few weeks ago we returned on a saturday night which i recommeneded for a friends birthday. Little did i know, upstairs was the party room, which was a upsetting since the reason of going was for the crazy entertainer guy in the basement. The guy at the door told me that everything downstairs was occupied and put us upstairs. The night was disappointing and a totally different experience from that im used to when going to Sammys. If you ever plan on going to Sammy's, make sure to reserve the basement for the true sammy's experience

    Food and entertainment

    As the review below stated, this place is far from fancy. But aside from the look of the restaurant, Sammy's has great food and the entertainer guy is just amazing! He just cracks us up with his jokes. I go at least once a month and always seem to have a great time. If you are looking to take a date for a romantic dinner, this may not be the place, but if you are looking to laugh, eat great food and hear great music then Sammy's is definitely the place.

    the goods

    by no means is this place fancy or 4 star. it is what it is, good food, kitsch, and fun. stop ya whining and take your nose out of the air. classic new york, if you don't like sammys you are probably a feminine cleaning tool. with that said, I hope you enjoyed your stay in NYC and may all your future strip mall meals be wonderful

    Like my Grandmothers

    Some of the best tasting food that my grandmother used to make. Yum, a must stop in New York each year. Thanks

    Nothing fancy at all

    went to celebrate a friend's birthday who wanted something inexpensive and joyful boy was that a bad idea. The food is more or less authentic eastern european jewish home cooking. Nothing fancy at all - a little worse than Katz's Deli and not a lot of it. The space was cramped and extremely noisy - conversation with people next to you was impossible we had to step outside to talk. The worst was at the end. First, his $50 per person prix fixe turned into $90/person after they charged him for liquor (maybe 4-5 bottles of Kettel One and 8 bottles of the cheapest red wine for 25 people) tax and 20% tip. Then at 11:50 sharp they said it was over and that we had 15 minutes to wrap it up and then started to rearranging tables. The party started a little after 9 on a saturday night that was unexpected.

    I don't get it

    The food here is awful. I grew up on this stuff--chopped liver, potlagela, skirt steak, stuffed cabbage, the works--and Sammy's doesn't come close. My mother was Roumanian. My father was a salesman for Hod Carmel, and my mother's cousin founded Hebrew National. If you do go, it's got to be just for the schtick. The egg cream are good, though.
