Fun place! – Great food, great music and a great staff. Glad we went. Makes for a GREAT date night. Price is reasonable too.
Sambuca Addison Turned Around – I am glad I made this one of my stops during my summer vacation. I stopped in and had the best Seabass Skewers in the world!! They absolutely melted in my mouth. I don't live in Texas but visit there frequently and Sambuca will always be on my first to visit list when I hit the city! I am in love with the atmosphere and I have always had superb service when I visit. Try it out for yourself before you form an opinion about this place....Love love love it!!! Go viist today and order those skewers!!!
FYI...Addison Sambuca is now closed. – Just FYI.....the Addison location is now closed. I called the Uptown location to confirm this information and they said yes, the Addison location is closed, but there is now a location in Plano.....Sambuca 360.
Customer Service Means Nothing To These People – Don't even waste your time. Reservations are lost daily. Food is expensive and very small portions. Service is poor and management is bad. Don't bother to complain, they do not care.
Don't even consider for New Years Eve – Disorganized from reservations to seating to table service. Morrocan Room was an "after thought". We were still eating at 12:00 midnight. Classic example of "greedy management" trying to crowd in as many tables at the expense of the patrons. Tables so close to the band that there was almost no room to dance. Three persons supposedly working as hostess with no clue what to do. Waited twenty minutes in line with others who had reservations only to find out the hostess was unaware we were there. Our table was already set up and ready. :Many hold overs from 7:30 -9:00PM crowd prevented orderly seating. Trying to turn three tables in a night overwhelmed kitchen, hence we were still eating at 12:00PM. Only positive thing was food was good, just took 2 hours! Scratch off your future New Years eve list!
Totally Disappointed! – I have never written a review, but this was an unbelievable $360.00 dinner mistake!!
I'm sorry, but New Years Eve Dinner was a huge disappointment. The service was extremely poor, and not knowledgeable about the entrees. We waited 15 minutes, until I finally got the attention of a kitchen attendant that we needed a waitress! She seemed like she had too many tables, unhappy & ready for the night to end! The salad was good - but unfortunately, the only thing good - the steaks were luke warm &
just gross - the desserts & appetizers were very average to say the least. The music? Let's just say, not the jazz I expected??!! We took our son & his girlfriend (the reason for the $360) The lighting was sooo dark, we honestly could not see the menu or our food without holding the candle directly over them both. Go to Papa's, Del Frisco, 3 Forks or Sullivans for this money ! There is NO comparison. Sorry, but the experience was just terrible.
a lovely dinner – Well, this restaurant had its ups and downs. It was definitely quite expensive, plan on $100 per couple, easily. However, the martinis were really, really good. I had the Zebra Pasta (a specialty of the house), which I loved, and my friend had the Chicken Toscana, which he said was good but not great. They had some good (but overpriced) wines by the glass. Dessert was a special of the day, a brownie with ice cream and chocolate sauce. It was very much average; not even as good as you would get at a chain restaurant! There is live music playing while you eat, which was nice, and some people got up to dance, so I'm sure they had a nice time. The weirdest thing is that it is SO dark in there at the tables off to the side, you could barely read the menu. The waitress even had to break out a flashlight to show us the dessert menu! It was ridicuous! However, overall... despite the prices, and despite the dimness, and despite the bland dessert... I left with a favorable impression, and I would actually say it was one of the better meals I've had since I moved here a few months ago.
Poor Service – I had planned a bachelorette party for a party of 10 on September 16, 2006 to be held at Sambuca at Addison. I've been to the Sambuca Uptown(Downtown Dallas) location, but I've never been to the Addison location. I had a positive experience at the Uptown location. I had made reservations two weeks in advance for 7pm, Saturday night. When I arrived at 6:45pm to confirm my reservation, I had to wait before being seated. At around 7:40pm, with a total of 8 people already there, they still didn't seat us. I had to repeatedly ask(4 times) when can we be seated. I couldn't believe that they were going to wait until the whole 10 people had shown up. My guests were hungry and wanted to be seated. They finally seated us at 7:50pm. There is no purpose in making reservation for this restaurant. They apparently don't understand the concept of reservation. The waitress, Debbie, rarely came to our table. And before we were served our dessert, the waitress asked to bring our check. Basically, she was trying to get us out quickly. My guests felt rush. The restaurant automatically added an 18% tip to a check with 8 plus people. That might explain why the waitress made very little effort to serve us. Service overall was the poorest I have ever experienced in any restaurant. The food was okay. The live entertainment was excellent. The entertainment was the only thing that had saved the night. Oh, the restauarant policy is that you can stay for about 2 hours there and then after that, they will try to throw you out. There are alot of policies for this restaurant. I didn't realize this until I had called to complain to the manager, Mike. Mike listened to my complaint and then told me that he will investigate the situation and call me back. Well, guess what, no phone call. I wasn't exactly surprised. If you like good entertainment, this is the place. If you want good service, this isn't the place.
What a joke – While the drinks were ok, 30 minute waits between courses, a waiter that talked way too much and never delivered, and food that could have come out of any microwave left us more than disappointed. If you're not too discriminating, could eat at Denny's, and just want to hang with some low mileage lovelys, go there. If not, don't even think about it.
