This is really a review of the manager, I wish I had read Gab1122, before.
My wife is a teacher in a local school, after work twice a month they go for the sunset special prix fix dinner at Sammy’s. There are other groups of teachers that also go to Sammy’s.
I have been there with just my wife in the past, always found the dinner to be quite good. The chef , presentation , staff are exceptional. I agree with other reviews that they are all standing around, as the restaurant is 1/3 full at this time.
After having a very good meal, I requested that my dessert be wrapped to have later, the waiter said OK, but returned to tell me
the manager will not let the dessert leave the premises.
So the manager came over to explain, I asked if I did not finish my meal could I take the rest home ,, Yes, if the dessert is deivered to my table, and I do not touch it , can I take it home, Yes,,
but I can not take it home by request without it being set in front of me, I offered to pay extra for the wrapping of the dessert, then was politely told that is not happening, and If I do not like her judgement to please not return to the restaurant… That was out and out not called for especially since my bill with 9 dollar drinks still came to 75 dollars for 2.
I hope that she owns the restaurant, or something, as this has now soured not only my wife and I, but the other teachers who used to go for dinner..
This should have been a movie , with Jack Nicholson asking for toast, they do not have toast, so he ordered a chicken sandwich on toast to go, hold the chicken. I can not take credit for that one, as it came from another teacher at school , when my wife related this story…
Sammys’ is a cute,deliteful restaurant, hold the manager.
