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.

One bright point is that Gypsy playing. He is a good entertainer. Food sucks, wine is cheap (tastewise), service by guys who look like they showered week ago sucks and on the top they try to cheat by including a 20% tip on party of four without saying a word - that is illegal.

WE ALWAYS ENJOY SAMMY'S. WHAT FUN! DANI LUV MAKES OUR NIGHT. WE GO FOR PASSOVER EVERY YEAR. THE SEDER LASTS MAYBE NINE MINUTES WHICH PLEASES MY HUSBAND NO END. LOOKING FORWARD TO 2013 WITH HUNGRY HEARTS AND TUMMIES.

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!

Positives: Atmosphere, Frozen Vodka Negatives: Food, Service Only thing on the menu worth eating is the chopped liver and onions. I went here for a friends birthday party. There were 15 people in the party total. Six people all sitting on one side of the table did not want the family style meal. The others did. The waiter was set on charging everyone the full price of the family style meal, until we practically had to beg that the 6 could just order a la carte. Come bill time we were given a completely illegible bill, whose bottom line could only equate to everyone being charged the full family style meal price. The $1200 bill was far more than the food ordered. If it was anything else other than my friends birthday party, I would have walked out right in the beginning. The server made it clear that he was more concerned with making the billing easy for himself (and more expensive) than giving us the food we wanted. The way the bill was handled was abhorrent. I will never go back.
