    The food was great. I think dessert needs more choice. The bench type seats are not comfortable at all and too high. The noise level is difficult

    The menu in Sams Brasserie never particularly appeals and I usually prefer going for a drink/bar snack than for a meal. However on this occasion we tried the restaurant. I didn't particularly fancy anything on the menu but when it came the food was well-presented and very good. The service was friendly and efficient, particularly given how busy it was on the night we went, and the atmosphere buzzing. Good cocktails contributed to a fun evening. It isn't cheap but the food is good quality and it is a cool venue. .

    Food was delicious but the service was a little weird. Our server didn't speak great English so we kept having to repeat our order, they did not advise us to order a side with the fish (definitely needed one) and charged £4 each for the lime & soda (apparently they used bottled sparkling water - bit strange) when we complained they reduced it to £2.50 per sparkling water. All in all I'd go back as it was delicious but I'd have wine instead!

    My second time here and I must say I was disappointed. The food lacked flavour and the menu is still very limited, poor choices for vegetarians. However, I'd recommend this place because of the relaxed atmosphere and good cocktails. Perhaps give the food a miss.

    Limited menu but all dishes looked delicious! Chose the Hot Chicken & although we were warned that it could take up to 20 minutes, I didn't feel that I'd had to wait very long. Portions are quite large so no room for dessert!

    squid, risotto balls, roast pork, sea bream all v tasty and would return for this reason. Issue was service: our waitress' English wasn't very good so she didn't understand basic orders eg white wine spritzer and didn't understand when we asked for certain menu options. She wasn't very attentive either, forgot some things and then brought dessert far too early and it wasn't warm (as menu indicated). Admittedly, our issues were resolved quickly and another waitress apologised.

    Tucked away off the high street of Chiswick, Sam's is nice place. Very trendy, great drink menu, good wine list, and nice food. Food service was a little slow, but the server made up for it by regularly checking on us for drinks. (I was there for dinner)

    We booked for a late lunch at Sam'. The food was good but the service was a bit sporadic, the acoustics make it a little difficult at times to make yourself heard and we think the waitress perhaps didn't hear us. The food was good and well-presented.

    My wife, her sister and I had a thoroughly enjoyable evening last Saturday, 26thJuly. The menu as ever is varied and had dishes to suit all tastes. The lamb and the ribs were superb. We always enjoy the atmosphere at Sam's, has a real buzz! Excellent evening and my wife really enjoyed her Birthday treat. Many thanks. PAR.

    The whole experience was amazing, from the moment my friend and I walked in the door. We were allocated a table but wanted to sit somewhere else, the staff were more than happy to accommodate our needs. The food was amazing a little late, but the staff apologised and kept us updated. The food was worth the wait! Would Recommended the leg of lamb, absolutely divine!!

    Fantastic cocktails at the bar with a huge selection and then enjoyed dinner after. Cab company yards away so easy to get home. Only feedback was that the waitress was over attentive which was actually quite grating - but she meant well so it's just a small thing. Will definitely visit again

    Celebrated a relatives birthday in Saturday night and the restaurant gave us a great table, plenty of room and not squished in. Some really lovely touches such as a birthday treat with coffee and attentive service from friendly service staff made it a really memorable night. Not to mention fantastic food (excellent fish and one diner saying the chicken was the best ever!) and good value drinks, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this fantastic local restaurant.

    Arrived early so had a drink at the bar which was quite busy, maybe because there was live music that night. The meal itself was good, much better than my previous experience but the restaurant was also very busy so we had to wait some time between our courses. Would recommend for the food.

    The venue has a nice atmosphere, not too loud and hectic and most definitely a place where you feel completely at ease to talk with your companions. The service was impeccable from start to finish, very professional and without any long waits for the food. The menu had a good variety of dishes. Although 3 courses were a little out of my price range we had bread and olive oil instead of starters and felt the portions were generous. The food was wonderful, absolutely faultless. I would definitely recommend this venue and will return again when I have another occasion that deserves to be suitably marked!

    Love this place for their amazing cocktails (pricey but competitively so) Perfect place for pre dinner cocktails or just dinner or somewhere to go after dinner or all 3! FYI Tables for dinner are the very tightly packed together style which if you like your conversations to be semi private they won't be. All in all guaranteed good food and drink with a relaxed atmosphere

    We went for dinner and told we had to be done in 2 hours .. not great but not unusual these days ... My cod was cooked perfectly, the rhubard trifle was to die for, our waitress was lovely/attentive and restaurant had a great vibe - quite a treat for a restaurant to get it all right.. explains why there was not an empty seat in the restaurant or bar area. It was our first time there and I am looking forward to going back.

    I booked our anniversary meal at Sam's Brasserie on the strength of the reviews I'd seen on toptable, and I was definitely not disappointed. The staff were attentive, friendly, informative and helpful, and the food was absolutely fantastic - I could quite happily have eaten a second helping of absolutely everything. This was our first time eating there, but I'm sure it won't be the last!

    What a wonderful vibrant atmosphere with a mixed of different ages enjoying themselves, drinking exquisite cocktails. It was our fist time at SAMS and after several Mojitos and Margaritas we were shown to our table. There was a good selection of food on the menu to cater for all tastes, but l always look around to see what other people were eating. The ribs caught my eye but the burgers also looked very tempting. I opted for the ribs and my wife, Vicky for the steak. I have eaten ribs in many places but I have to admit this was the most delicious ribs we had both tasted. The steak was just as delicious, subtly cooked to perfection.We had a great time and will visit again soon, and in our case it will be a case of play it again SAM.
