Absolutely the best steak house and Jewish Roots place in America.... Me, my dad and grandfather the late Jerry and Victor Frost have been going there since 1960 ( it used to be call The parkway in the early 1960's) This place is totally representative of the lower east side Jewish ghetto... The food is magnificent.... great steaks and chopped liver and egg creams... great bread.. great knish,,,, great kreplach... roots and more roots.... the place is pricey and it is a good value. very worthwhile for the total experience.. definitely a must see spot for those interested in New York Jewish culture and food...

Simply delicious. The steak here is excellent. This is a Jewish establishment. The service is excellent. The servers are great they suggest dishes based on your mood and what you feel like drinking. They're spot on. That frozen vodka is the truth. It comes to the table in a block of ice. That's definitely different. I definitely would like to go back and eat here again

Like visiting a Jewish function catered by older Jewish family members, it is more than a meal, it is an experience. If it's from your background, it'll be like coming home. If it's not, it is an experience like no other.

Artery-clogging Jewish comfort food and a rollicking, decidedly non-kosher dining room make unlikely bedfellows in this famous, divvy Lower Eastsider. The crowd can be hit or miss, but when it's on there's not a more amusing party in the city. On my last visit, there was a strolling fiddler serenading a birthdaying Mafia don, a quiet Chinese family and several large tables of black-clad hipsters who spent most of the night dancing around the room. None of which would be particularly odd, but for the menu, which is filled with cardiovascular no-no's like kishka (herb-stuffed intestinal casing), sweetbreads (thymus glands), fertilized chicken eggs and chopped liver mixed with heavy doses of schmaltz (rendered chicken fat), which sits on the table in a little pitcher. The Romanian hanger tenderloin alone, is enough to drop you into an eater's coma. Vodka, frozen in a block of ice, is the drink of choice along with egg creams.

No place else like it on the planet! Chicken livers are delish! So is the Romanian Tenderloin. Danny Luv is a riot! Do not miss the opportunity to enjoy this truly unique New York experience.

Went here for 30th birthday meal with a group of friends. Absolutely brilliant, such a fun place. The chopped liver and onions to start is delicious, the entertainment is hilarious and the vodka...oh dear. If you want a raucous, fun, crazy, completely out of tbe ordinary night out with a group of friends then try this out. Maybe not the best for a romantic meal for two...

The steakhouse is on another level! It’s extremely kitschy and lots of fun. I recommend doing a group dinner here since they’re pretty well-catered for it. Order up the Ketel One in their frozen block of ice and enjoy! The food is basic Jewish goodies like onions with chicken liver, grilled meats along with other side dishes like pickles. The dish to keep away from would have to be their mashed potatoes as that was the least liked by our entire table of 12. The mash potatoes taste bland and just gross. Overall, I’m really happy I was able to experience Sammy’s and highly recommend folk to at least try it once!

If you're looking for the best house singer, swells of vodka, and bomb in Manhattan then look no further. Dani Luv is like the Frank Sinatra of singing. Perfect for big groups, small groups, dates, and whatever else. Just walking into this place makes you feel like you went through some time portal to a 1970s Bar Mitzvah. Mozel Tav!
