    One of the most fun dinners I've had. Guy on the piano is incredible. You'll end up eating more food than you can imagine, drinking more vodka than humanly possible, and dancing with total strangers!

    Chopped liver is to die for. Stuffed cabbage really good. Self serve egg cream is delish, but don't order it until after the meal. You will stand out. Totally fun atmosphere. Just do it.

    Jewish delicacies since the '40s. Live music, lounge acts, customers who sing along. The atmosphere is festive, and will make you be hoisted on a chair by those drunk on “Hava Nagila” and Stolichnaya.

    You go here for the atmosphere more then the food. An unbelievable experience. Good thing the food is also good - the steak, chicken liver and sweat breads are great choices

    If you come here for the food, you're a dope. It's all about the crazy, kitschy singing and dancing. The (fairly expensive) food is the admission price.

    The very Eastern European menu includes saline chicken liver, garlicky karnatzlach sausage and enormous beef tenderloins, all of which are hearty enough to slow down the hora.

    If you are finding out about this place via foursquare, you aren't the target audience. The ambience of a church basement bingo hall with park avenue prices.

    Get ready to eat! The servings are huge. The waitstaff are great and willing to give their recommendations. Get a t-shirt to remember your evening by! You'll need a size larger then when you came :)

    $55 Prix Fixe buys you all the potatoes (+meat) you can eat. $300 buys you a bottle of Vodka in ice. So, just bring like $101 and you'll be fine. Also, try the Hora. It's fun.

    Pricey but worth going once for the atmosphere ("it's like going to a Jewish wedding") and live music. Food is subpar (they use cheap cuts of steak). Chopped liver is their specialty

    Jewish comfort food with a lot of kitsch. The chopped liver and the egg creams are delicious. This place gets super rowdy, making it a great birthday party destination.

    A guaranteed good time filled w delicious Roumanian food. Be sure to try out the chopped liver! When was the last time you heard someone say *that*?!

    It's not about the food, it's the overall experience. Get the souped-up chopped liver. Yes, Dani Luv is schmaltzy, but he's got a funny schtick.

    One of the craziest nights out you will ever have, guaranteed! And the steaks are enormous, too!

    You walk in with a mediocre first impression. You walk out feeling it's one of the most underrated places in Downtown NYC. A gem!

    Don't come here unless you're ready to have an AWESOME time. Loved the DJ upstairs getting the party going.

    Another fun thing: have the egg cream. The waiter makes it in front of you; chocolate syrup and seltzer and all over the table is a great way to end your dinner. :)

    The latkas and steak are amazing, but the best part is the entertainment on Fri, Sat, and Sunday nights

    Bring earplugs if you're sensitive to loud bar mitzvah music. Put the schmaltz on everything.

    A one and done type of place. All I kept saying to myself as I left was that I could've been eating at Gramercy Tavern for those prices. Sammy's smells like a urinal cake. Yup. I said it. 🍻

    Say it's your friend's Bar Mitzvah. Better yet, say it's his Bris. You will not regret this decision.
