We were impressed and excited at the prospect of a Latin restaurant with the panache of the Downtown scene. While sipping a martini at the friendly bar our spunky bartendress gave us the scoop on what to order. Once seated, we didn't wait but a moment for our drink order; the waiter was charming, courteous, and efficient. My date loved the zesty touches to his salad and seafood, although it was a bit too spicy for my taste. With spectacular service and a spirited atmosphere, I'll definitely be back to try other dishes!

Pros: Well-trained staff, Noisy, Great prices

Cons: Crowded doorway, Not for quiet dates, Trendy

My wife and I traveled 70 miles for our anniversary dinner at the Samba Room. We enjoyed the ambience and the crowd but the meal and service were very disappointing. I have had better steaks at a Western Sizzlin and my wife had fish that was bone dry. The waiter showed up to take our order and bill us. My wife told him about our food and he said " Sorry" and gave her the bill.

Cons: food, service, drink value

Atmosphere is great, decor is fun and perfect for the cuisine selection. Food is good, but the Paella is not really what I call a Paella. So I would say that most of the flavors are right for most of the entrees, but not authentic. If you have a large party, the Havana room is a really nice place to reserve. The service has been great on 2 occations and then my last visit there, there were alot of mistakes and delays.

I have enjoyed dining at the Samba Room on two occasions and found it to be perfect in every way. I think the secret to a great experience is to sit upstairs. The atmosphere is straight out of Havana. The Mahi-Mahi is YUMMY, and the banana dessert is terrific. Try it!

Pros: Great Value, Good Drinks, Great Service

The food was barely passable (the paella was dominated by the flavor of sausage grease and the "iced" coffee melted all the ice before it was served). Everything else was disappointing. The host was a charming, fun guy, and it went downhill from there. Part of the bar was barricaded by a group of women on sofas eating dinner around a coffee table -- sitting at the only available bar stools would have involved walking between at least 3 people and their entrees. The server was snotty -- in fact downright rude with his curt "certainly"s when we asked for crazy things like water (no, they're not serving water on request due to the drought, unless they're doing it selectively) or our check (after 10 minutes of watching him pass by). The scene is all beautiful people. Go to Samba Room to see them, but eat before you go.
