Last Saturday, went to Sammy's with 30 close friends for a fantastic birthday party. The aftermath: this was one of the best nights many people ever had going out in NY (and a very rough Sunday). The secret: great atmosphere, a dozen bottles of vodka, dancing and non-uptight friends. I'm sure there are nights that the crowd doesn't vibe this place but we were into it full-force like the year was 5999. If you have ever had eastern european food, you will get the cuisine. Form that perspective, the food was terrific. Everyone loved it and and lots of folks even sampled the more exotic stuff. The steak was spectacular. On the other hand, if you're from fly-over country, and Outback is the fanciest restaurant in your town, this steak is not for you. I was p*ssed they took some of the steak away while we were dancing around the place to Fiddler on the Roof or something like that. The prices: we got the prefix menu which came out to around $60. This is fantastic for the amount and variety of food they kept bringing us, especially by NY standards. The alchohol probably came out to about $40 per person. Considering what drinks cost in NY and how much we drank, we were thrilled with this as well. Add tax and a very well deserved tip and the bill came to around $130 per person. We'll worth a night of eating, drinking, and dancing. Bottom Line: Come with a big group, relax, get drunk, get up and dance.
Pros: Food, Music, Service
Cons: Just because I'm drunk, don't mean I don't want a doggie bag
