Sam's Reviews List

Sam's

Sam"s is not about reinventing the wheel. It's more about finding four wheels that we wanted to drive around the Boston Waterfront. The local bounty of New England's farms and artisans; the simplicity of an American Diner; the endless and timeless appeal of the French Bistro menu; and the warmth and welcoming spirit of our home.

Located above Louis Boston on Fan Pier, Sam's is a 45 seat restaurant that offers stunning views of the Boston skyline and waterfront.

We are conveniently located next to the ICA and Boston Courthouse, and a short walk to the Boston Convention Center, World Trade Center, and Bank of America Pavilion.

During the warmer months, seating is available on our 80 seat patio. Reservations are only offered for the inside dining room, but please feel free to call about our wait times for outdoor seating.

"Fantastic for a summer lunch by the sea. Love the chalkboard specials--somewhat standard menu but with some nice twists and everything is delicious and beautifully prepared. Highest marks for the elegant cheese plate to start!!"

"We were in town for a conference and Sam's made our group feel right at home. They had a table with an excellent view of the harbor ready for us. Great foodie menu and they worked well with a strange food allergy :) Highly recommend!"

"My wife and took our twin daughters here for 16th birthday dinner. The outdoor terrace and ambiance was spot-on. Service was attentive, helpful, and prompt. The menu had enough variety to suit our temperamental palettes. Three of us are doing the paleo thing and had great fare of pork tenderloin and a scrumptious red curry mussels. We really enjoy this place, and love the connection with the Harborwalk with magnificent view onto the Boston skyline as unique."

"Sam's is a great spot for getting brunch. A little pricey but that's to be expected.Food was very good and the view from the deck was great. My recommendation to Sam's is to get some umbrellas for the deck because it can be brutally hot out on their deck, also some music outside would have been nice. Otherwise great spot."

"I've always had excellent experiences at Sam's but this time was completely different. I didn't see one server smile the entire time we were there, which was over 2 hours. Drinks took forever and we did not feel welcome. One meal was sent back because it was burned so badly it was inedible. Once the new meal came, we all agreed that the food was very good. Overall, it's a great spot with AMAZING views and atmosphere, but the service culture and attitudes were bad. Disappointing."

"All Waitstaff was terrific. Party of 8 suddenly turned into party of 11. Staff immediately brought out another table within seconds. Food was yummy, drinks were tasty.
I'm coming back and so are the rest of my party.

"We love Sam's and have been coming here for a while, whether to have a romantic evening, bring visiting friends, or celebrate a special occasion. Sam's usually doesn't disappoint, except the most recent time when they didn't remember our special request - it didn't ruin the evening but felt like the person taking our request didn't care about our experience (he was quite curt and a bit rude on the phone too).
Also, it would be great if they added/changed around the vegetarian options on the menu- am getting bored eating the same things every time!

"This is the one place in Boston that I know won't let me down when I have guests visiting from overseas. The view is wonderful. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable enthusiastic. Ambiance is comfortable. Jeans or dressy mix well here. Food is spectacular. Always surprises. Always pleases. Great for sharing...or not!"

"Went for lunch on a beautiful day. Location was outstanding with a fantastic harbor view. Food was interesting and delicious. My wife had the omelet and we shared the street corn and crisp ribs. Both were excellent. I have been here before for dinner but the lunch was a nice surprise. Don't be put off by the construction nearby. It is quiet. Will definitely be back"

"It's a pity that Sam's is moving with the destruction of the Louis building. I really like the environment that they've set up, but I'm excited to see what they do with their new space.
Would highly recommend a cheese board."

"The food, service, and vibe of Sam's won me over when I first had a drink and appetizers there shortly after it opened. Estie is by far one of the most gracious hosts in the restaurant scene, and this clearly overflows to the staff. The food is always superb-- farm-to-table, fresh ingredients, and always highlighted. My only complaint is I wish there was some way the location could be saved; being in an open yet smaller space on the second floor with a wrap around outdoor deck overlooking both the city and the harbor helps create that intimate feeling of visiting a friend's home rather than a business establishment."
