DELIGHTFUL! – This was my first time at Cafe Sam. I had the mussels appetizer and lasagna. Loved the sauce... the food was exceptional as was the service. I found the place to be quite delightful!

Never Disappointed – I have been to Pittsburgh for business over the last three months and have had the pleasure of eating at Cafe Sam during many of my stays. I can't get over how good the food is! I order something different every time and have not been disappointed once. Although, I have to admit, the last meal I had (smoked turkey sausage appetizer and braised lamb entree) has been my favorite so far. For my next visit, I'm getting the veal chops. A table next to mine had an order. Boy, did they look good!

Excellent! – We had an excellent meal at Cafe Sam. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu and answered all of our questions. Her recommedations served us well! My rainbow trout was perfect and my friend's steak was cooked exactly as she ordered it. The cajun seafood nacho appetizer had just enought kick to it, too!

Great Pittsburgh Restaurant – The food at Cafe Sam is not only prepared well, but the combinations of ingredients are a feast for your taste buds. I've been there three times in the last month - grilled veal tongue, cajun nachos, naked pork riblets, grilled eggplant appetizer, ahi tuna, chicken tikka masala... I eat out often, and Cafe Sam is high on my list of restaurants. Oh, did I mention how great the service is? The waiters are very friendly and aim to please.

Great Dinner – My wife and I had a great meal at Cafe Sam. We don't get the chance to go out to dinner very often (with three small children at home), so it was nice being at a restaurant with friendly people waiting on you and excellent food. Next time my wife and I are able to go out for dinner, we'll be sure to return to Cafe Sam.

Fabulous! – I hooked up with my friends at Café Sam a few nights ago. Margaritas, strawberry daiquiris, infused martinis, oh my! And the food was fabulous… the roasted sea scallops were to die for. Café Sam is as good as any New York joint I’ve been to!

Unmatchable – My wife and I have been eating at Café Sam for 15 years, and I don’t ever recall having a bad meal or experience at this fine establishment. Last night I ordered the Turkey Meatloaf from the four course dinner special. My wife had the Vidalia Onion Pie and Stuffed Pheasant off of the Chef’s Specials card. You can never go wrong with anything you eat at Café Sam. The quality and consistency of the food is unmatchable, and Mary, Dan, and the wait staff are delightful!

One of a kind resturant – Entering the resturant, I was greeted in a friendly manner, there was a play going on across the street so Cafe Sam had a special "european" menu to go with the regular menu. There is a huge selection, everything is reasonably priced and the portions are just enough. All of the waiters were extremly professional and explained the menu completly. The food came to the table in record time and the meat/veg/grain ratio was perfect. The only thing that could be changed is the decor is dated, although the resturant was very clean I will definetly be returning to Cafe Sam

We had the $17.95 "March Madness" Four Course Dinner - Beef Brisket and Vegetable Soup, House Salad, Fresh Turkey Cutlet Parmesean (my boyfriend had Tilapia with Pecan Butter), and Strawberry Shortcake. Our waitress was great. Cafe Sam Rocks!!!
