Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "I can't fault the waiting staff, attentive and very professional. Food is high end and well made. It's fairly informal and very little ambiance. I would say great for lunch or after work drinks"
    dined on 22/07/2014
  • "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!!"
    dined on 08/07/2014
  • "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"

    dined on 09/06/2014
  • "Food nice but a bit fried and fatty for me, not so many healthy options it's mostly ribs and fried chicken and burgers etc, was hoping for more healthy salads and grilled fish etc."
    dined on 05/06/2014
  • "Went for lunch expecting 5:2 Menu but it wasn't available. However chef cooked something special, below 400, so much appreciated. Will definitely visit again when in Chiswick "

  • "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."

  • "menu changes frequenly and this time I had chicken, coleslaw and spicy sweet potoato mash, best meal I have had at Sam's, the chicken was tender and spicy. Lovely service too."
    dined on 09/05/2014
  • "Busy & noisy, could not really hear what the person opposite to me was saying, food mediocre, there are plenty of better places in Chiswick"
    dined on 04/05/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 04/05/2014
  • "I didn't come back to Sam's in a long time, so wanted to try it again after a long time. I had a great brunch there last Sunday, still a great address in Chiswick. NY atmosphere. "

  • "A little quieter then I'm used to, but great food and great service... and not too pricey."
    dined on 04/05/2014
  • "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! "
    dined on 26/04/2014
  • "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 "
    dined on 25/04/2014
  • "As always, an imaginative, reasonably-priced set lunch menu. Congratulations to the chef for his inventive fare! We will be returning, as we always do."
    dined on 25/04/2014
  • "Nice evening, ordered the Chicken and the chicken wings, both were fried so not ideal, struggled a bit with the menu, pork rib eye or ribs or Venison, Pork Rillet and Black pudding I wouldn't eat any of that could have don't with more healthy options on the menu but it was a pleasant evening would go back just probably wouldn't choose eat there but maybe that's just my taste."

  • "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."

  • "Sam's Brasserie is a local masterpiece. The food is always stunning, and the service is brilliant. The drinks selection is superb, and the menu varies often enough to keep you coming back for more. I've eaten here a few times, and never had a bad experience."
    dined on 27/02/2014
  • "Anpother good meal at Sams. Ate off the 5:2 set dinner menu which was very tasty and more than enough. Service was slightly overattentive if anything but very good"
    dined on 27/02/2014
  • "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!"

  • "10 of us (7 adults & 3 kids) had a most enjoyable lunch. Good value and superb service, will definitely return!"

  • "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."
    dined on 21/02/2014
  • "An interesting and ever changing menu, with food beautifully presented and executed. Lots of great and original ideas, with cooking of real panache. The cocktails got 5 stars for originality and great flavours too! Lovely staff. Overall, a terrific evening out."
    dined on 18/02/2014
  • "We chose Sam's because of the advertised 5:2 diet menu and we were not disappointed. The dishes were imaginative and the serving sizes perfectly adequate. The restaurant was very quiet - a Monday lunchtime; we would like to try it again on a busier occasion."
    dined on 17/02/2014
  • "I had heard only positive things about Sam's Brasserie, including from my friend with whom I dined here for lunch. The restaurant was practically empty at lunchtime which I didn't mind but guess that that was the reason for the average food and service. The food was nothing special and my friend agreed. Would try it out one more time just in case I was unlucky. "
    dined on 17/02/2014

  • "Visited last week for the first time and was impressed with the staff and the ambience of Sam's. The starters of calamari and cauliflower soup were both nice and then moved into the main courses. I had the Maryland hot chicken which lacked any kind of flavour and seemed to lack the hot/spicy element and placed on a bit too much coleslaw. My partner ordered the venison which seemed to be flavoured a lot more and was quite nice. The puddings were all a bit odd and nothing seemed to grab our taste buds apart from maybe the ice cream/sorbet but at £6 for 3 scoops not sure how this is justified?So we left without pudding. I think the food is slightly over priced for what it is after coming to £75 for 2 courses and one glass of wine each."

  • "An excellent meal, with the added bonus of a special burger for Australia Day!"

    dined on 18/01/2014
  • "We like to use Sam's for special occasions such as family birthdays. Last Saturday was one such. The booking was easy and with a call on the day we got the table we like. Food as usual was excellent. The cauliflower soup was a particular hit. Ribs and the steaks were great (even though one was under done, our fault - this was soon corrected) However what made the evening special was the professional, helpful and friendly service of our waitress. See you in April. Norman Dallow"
