We actually hosted a shower at the Oak Room, which is the catering and rental room affiliated with Sam's of Gedney Way. We have also eaten in the restaurant, and everything is always amazing. The staff is very accommodating to your every need. My mother and I were extremely impressed with the service and the professionalism of the entire wait... More

Every 6 weeks or so, my friends and I go out for lunch. 7 out of 10 times we end up at Sam's, a White Plains institution for decades. The selections are varied and the quality top notch. We will be back soon.

I have been coming here for more years than I can remember. Sam's is never a disappointment. Free parking in the rear and event space as well. Beautiful bar!

Love this place. Ron, is a great waiter and fabulous person. The food, at all meals, is outstanding -- never a bad meal and we go once every week or so. The weekend brunch is terrific. Many choices, large portions, and includes a drink.

My husband and I really love this place for its cozy charm and its excellent staff. The staff is friendly and eager to please. The place is immaculate, well-lit, with an excellent 1940s and 50s vibe, complete with big band music playing very softly in the background. The brightly polished brass rails that define the space remind me of The... More

Held a party for twelve here. The room, food and service were great. A few weeks later we came as a couple and felt unwanted. It took a long time to get a menu, longer to get served. Food was beautiful and good but 5 scallops with some mashed potatoes do not make a main course. May try the place... More

Mathew was so helpful setting up our Club dinner in the private gallery room. Ron, our head server, made sure that our every need was met. The food was served family style and everything we had was very good. Great experience!

I got together with an old friend from high school this past weekend. The food was upscale and not unreasoably priced, we had a $12 drink apiece (wine for me, scotch for her), and my daughter finished her non-McDonald's chicken breaded things. My large salad was filling, with a great list of add ins.The atmosphere is "classy neighborhood" and well... More

Had reservations for 1pm. Took a drink order at 2p and a dinner order at 2:15 Two appetizers never came. Food came at 3:15 and 2 orders were wrong and food was lukewarm. They ran out of bread even afrer we requested it for almost 2 hours. Kept asking for water, never came. Por service, poor food. Never again!!
