    Delicious food; generous serves; friendly, helpful staff; the restaurant has a nice feel about it and has views of the ocean. Not a wide variety for my liking on the Red Wine menu; so, with a corkage fee of only $15, I will take my own wine next time. Overall, very satisfied.

    We found the food and ambiance just ok. We order the lobster which we thought was expensive compared to other places and then in addition wasn’t not prepared correctly.

    The $59 wagyu steak (ordered medium rare) was disappointingly tough and chewy. Service was slow and waiting staff were inattentive. All-in-all not good enough for the prices charged by this restaurant.

    Beautiful food, loved every dish. Our table was awkwardly on an angle abit too close to a larger table and there wasn’t much of a seaview which were the only downfalls. Attention to detail, great service & loved the piano background music. Went to celebrate Son’s 16th & he loved it.

    Christmas Day and heavily booked and table not ready. Unfortunately some staff below par - forgot order, mixed us up with another table. However, food was excellent - one dessert very small for price. Overall, beautiful setting and weather perfect. Would recommend.

    Food quality is good. The atmosphere is a plus. But my experience here is the first thing that ever happened from all the bookings from the fork. Told the waitress we had got the booking and was introduced to a seat when coming in. But when we finished the meal and suggested it was a booking from the fork also coming with a $50 discount, we were told they did not receive the booking plus need my proof like a screenshot for the discount. We were left standing at the entrance and felt quite confused and embarrassing during it. Never had this experience from other bookings from the fork.

    Hi Robert We have investigated on our end. We would like to apologize here and will talk to the fork management to fix this issue.It was more like a system error. We will definitely look into it. Thanks Sammys

    Maybe I was expecting too much but it was just ok... really not worth the price. The crab entree smelt really bad and tasted just as bad as it smelt. The nero marinara was nice but a bit too salty. Staff were really lovely though and service was excellent. Could do with a bit of decor update but I guess I'm just being fussy.

    Great food and service with a smile, beautiful location with ocean views. My favourite are the scallops, so good ????, had Sammy's favourite for lunch with beautifully crumbed king George Whiting, grilled prawns and salt & pepper calamari.

    I usually do not leave lukewarm reviews for food establishments, especially if I am given a discount. However, I do not think Sammy’s on Marina deserves a 5 star . It is a 3 star at the best but I have given an extra star for exceptional service my husband and I have received. All 3 waiters who serviced us did not do a wrong bit. The evening felt very special because of it. Food on the other hand was not special. We have ordered two King George whitings grilled . And when it came out - it was basically fish and chips with a little bit of salad on the side. There was no finesse to that dish. It was an overpriced fish and chips. Why would anyone pay almost $50 for a fish and chips? Yes, the views were amazing, but one will expect much more from the high end restaurant like Sammy’s in the Marina.

    Restaurant was well presented, lovely atmosphere, staff were attentive, friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Cocktails were top notch… one was simply not enough!! And finally the meal.. absolutely delicious!! Hubby and I shared one of the seafood platters.. simply divine. Everything was cooked as it should be. Special mention to the chilli muscles- an absolute standout. Looking forward to a return visit!!

    Fantastic location with great views even on a cold winters day. Service was exceptional with friendly staff, and of course the food was fresh and in abundance. Will certainly go again.

    The staff were very sneaky with some orders, implying that small menu items had no cost, when the menu shows that the sides cost money. They were trying to get us to order more than we wanted, by thinking we wouldn't notice the price.

    Impeccable customer service, possibly the best in adl. Mgr george knew his menu well n offered tastings before choosing the wine i prefer. Wait staff were all professional n good looking, providing just the right amount of table service without being intrusive which is hard to come across nowadays. Food was all delicious. Two thumbs up for generous portion entree Seafood Chowder which sis had as her main, creamy n chunky with depth of good stock. Dad enjoyed blackboard special Lamb Shank drenched in rich sauce, but wld hv preffered more greens to balance the meaty dish. Mum rarely eats steak yet enjoyed Surf n Turf as the 2pcs of thick cut ribeye style beef was made to melt in the mouth, meaning easy for seniors to chew. Not my kind of steak as i prefer charred flavours but still its excellent steak n jus for a seafood restaurant. Surprise highlight after great service n food is they brought a real cake knife out for our byo birthday cake! Most other gd restaurants only hv a butter knife which spoils the cake cutting experience. Now that's going the extra mile. Well deserved multi award winner. Thank you Sammy's for a beautiful evening to remember.

    The service was excellent, we had two delightful staff members taking care of us. I had Nero Marinara which was delicious and packed with assorted seafood on a bed of squid ink spaghetti. I would highly recommend it!
