Nice dining experience sitting outside on the patio with the mist keeping us cool. The pizza was wonderful and the waitress was extremely attentive and friendly. Overall, a great dining experience for the whole family.

First of all, the service was very prompt and the servers were friendly. However, we were never asked if we wanted more water but it turned out okay. We had heard about their Crisp Brussels Sprouts and yes, they are a delicious appetizer! We also ordered individual salads but should have shared a large salad since ours were quite big.... More

Our family went to Sammy's for pizza on a recent trip to Palm Springs. Usually we go there for happy hour and have appetizers, but we were later this time so we just had pizzas. My wife had the arugula and pear, my daughter had the five cheese and I had the thai chicken pizza. All of them were excellent... More

I have to admit, I was here years ago and had a nothing-special-meal. Tried it again, and loved every morsel! Our table shared a lot of food as we had just gotten off a plane and was hungry! Shared a pizza, salad, the brussel sprouts, the garlic/cheese bread, and the asian sampler. All of which was AWESOME! Tasty, hot, unique,... More

We eat at Sammy's every time we come to Palm Desert it is always good. The salads are huge so they are perfect for splitting. If you come before 6:00 pm they have half price off on the appetizers. We love the thin crust goat cheese sun dried tomato pizza. Our preference is always to sit outside. We have never... More

Waitress was terrible. Very slow and they weren't busy. Food was ok at best. Lots of better places to eat.

This restaurant was recommended for the gluten free pizza crust and since my daughter has celiac disease it was decided to try it out. Our waiter wasn't sure if it was safe for her to eat but took care of us by checking with the manager. All of our food was great. And we enjoyed eating outside.

Very disappointed given the great location of this restaurant. Pizza like this needs improvement. The salad was not worth ordering.

Nice patio. Good spot for lunch. Good service. Located in an outdoor shopping mall. Plenty of free parking next to Sacs.

We have been to this restaurant a couple of times. We love to get a roomy white patio chairs on the patio. It is in The Gardens off El Paseo so it is a beautiful setting. We are not crazy about the pizza but their salads and appetizers are amazing. The service is friendly and attentive and the atmosphere is... More
