The first time I went to Sam's was for my girlfriend's bday in march 08, and we loved it so much that we already went back twice since that, each time with different friends and each time they raved about the place!. If you love food and you want to experience a restaurant that offers Mediteraneen / Californian flavorfull Cuisine, europeean / NY style Service in a dark, cosy, romantic atmosphere, this is your place. I don't think there is any other place like this one in Los Angeles.
Pros: food, full bar, great wine selection, service, atmosphere
Cons: busy on weekends
