2015 KEGGY “PEOPLE’S CHOICE” AWARD WINNER
As one of the few restaurants in Arkansas that serves wine directly from kegs, we were awarded the Free Flow Wine’s 2015 KEGGY “People’s Choice” award for our Wine on Tap program.
It was Fabulous!!!!
Food was excellent. Only issue-hostess told us to park in Valet area as we arrived a few minutes early for our 5pm reservation. Not long after 5 we were informed by the valet a tow truck had been called to tow our vehicle. His attitude was awful even after it was explained to him that the hostess told us to park there. Hostess told us later they usually check with her before calling a tow truck but did not that night.
The food was above our expectation. Our server was attentive and did well at offering specials. Love the atmosphere and valet parking. This is a must try.
Love Samantha’s. One of my favorite places to dine.
We loved Samantha’s!! Everything was great!! We will be back!!
Very good experience. The food was ready in ten minutes. Very fast. Thank you Samantha
Had an amazing time. Service, food, beverages were simply amazing. I always have the lamb chops w/ the Asian BBQ when I do attend. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.
Great experience! Highly recommend!
Every part of the meal was memorable and delicious. We each had a cocktail, shared an appetizer and salad and our own entrees. We finished it off with a shared dessert. Our waiter was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. We will definitely be back soon!
Great evening of drinks, food and fun.
Love Samantha's! I believe they put something addictive in the jalapeno stuffed, bacon wrapped, quail in black cherry demi-glaze? I get it to share even if I'm getting a different entree. Their gumbo is as good as anybody's. Get reservations! if you plan to go!
Nothing else to say at this time
Great food and great service! Would recommend to anyone going through Little Rock!
professional service, lively atmosphere, well-crafted drinks (we had old-fashioneds), decent pricing, and an intriguing menu. loved the grouper tacos and the portobello sandwich. the craft of water on each table is a much appreciated pleasure.
We were celebrating two birthdays. The food was delicious and the noise level was high. It was a Saturday evening and the acoustics make it difficult to carry on conversations. That’s my only issue with Samantha’s. I wish there were places for people who want to visit while enjoying the food, rather than just enjoy the food. It is not a place to take someone you haven’t seen in a long time.
Great food great atmosphere very enjoyable
It was my daughter’s birthday 21 and the hostess wasn’t friendly and didn’t seem happy to have us there. The waitress rush us to make our drinks orders and we didn’t know what the special of the day was. I asked them to bring a desert out in my quest and never got it. We really wanted to make it a special dinner but instead it wasn’t!! Our streaks weren’t cooked the way we wanted. I won’t be back
The appetizer was excellent, fried green tomatoes, the wine, $22 a glass was weak, more like a house wine, and the main course was a conglomeration of red snapper, green olives, other cooked relish and Brussels sprouts, there wasn’t a division of the food and it all ran together...as too much in a small space....nothing stood out as delicious...way overpriced...the crepe brûlée was very good. I should have gotten appetizer and dessert and saved $65.
Our server was excellent and very personable. Everything was delicious! The noise level was high which makes it hard to have a conversation but it just means that everyone is enjoying themselves.
We had high expectations because it always seems to be booked. It was good and I would return but would not wait or make a special trip.
I would visit for a casual dinner but I would not be back to celebrate a birthday. I made a birthday cake for my son and the host told us it would be a $20 charge to eat the cake there. He wasn't friendly even when we walked in. No smile or nothing. The server was very friendly.
I always have s great experience at Samantha’s. I’ll definitely be dining there again.
Server was not good, and in fact seemed disinterested when we asked for suggestions. Very inattentive.
Wow! Our first time in Little Rock and i chose Samantha’s for dinner based on other good reviews here on Open Table. All 4 of us absolutely LOVED it! The appetizers, entrees and dessert (the Chocolate Bag OMG) were each delicious. The queso was so good we got a second order of it. My husband said it was the best steak he’s ever had- cooked to perfection. Our service was impeccable. The beer selection was the best we’ve ever seen and the specialty cocktails were really great too! If we find ourselves ever back in little Rock this will be our first stop!
A gem in downtown Little Rock. This is a must visit American classic restaurant
Sean was AMAZING!!!!! Definitely ask for him the next time you visit sams! He is awesome! Food was excellent! I love this place!
Food and service was fantastic!
Food was amazing, as usual. This place never disappoints.
Concert and dinner night
It was very nice.
I have dined at this restaurant before and enjoyed it so much that I decided to bring my mother for a birthday lunch. She doesn’t usually dine at restaurants downtown so she had never been. We all really enjoyed and she was glad I brought her. The food was great, the atmosphere was so nice, and I love the decor. We will definitely be returning for our special occasions and just because.
Great food. The chopped salmon salad was delicious & I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys salad & salmon! The blackened grouper sandwich was one of the best kept secrets in town. Great wines by the glass.
Great atmosphere, service, food and drinks! We will definitely be going back! Sooner rather than later!
Really enjoyed my meal, did not like that I bought a bottle of wine and it came to the table in a decanter. I would have like it to come to the table in the bottle and then poured in the decanter. Besides that I’m enjoyed my meal.
I would recommend Samantha’s but our waiter was horrible!! He really gave a bad impression of the restaurant so I most likely won’t be going back.
Service was great, food was excellent!
I have lunch at Samantha’s often with girlfriends but this was a date and AR Rep Theatre night for my husband and me. We always love Samanthas, Spencer our waiter was great with suggestions and my Salmon salad was delicious along with a couple of Old Fashion cocktails. My husbands lamb chops were a little overdone but he said they still tasted great. We will definitely come back very soon as we thank you for making our date night special.
Good was great. Server upset bc we didn’t order drinks, a little condescending.
It was Awesome as always!!!
