The restaurant and lounge at the Samoset are great. Fabulous menu and service. The lounge is equally good. Great people working in both places.

We have gone to the Samoset to do a get away each January for several years. Enjoyed staying there always. But about the food..... We had always opted to have pizza from LBV as we typically dine out at other places. This time we decided to go into the LBV dining room proper and enjoy a meal. My wifes Tuscan... More

We were totally impressed with the delicious food, beautiful presentation and service! The food choices were plentiful, but not overwhelming. Our dinners were excellent and we couldn't have had a better experience. We also had breakfast the following day and we weren't disappointed. Once again, the food was delicious and our server was excellent. The restaurant in addition to our... More

We were looking forward to dinner, included with our stay at the Samoset Resort. Unfortunately as vegetarians, we had one entree choice, and as a gluten-free vegetarian, didn't have one choice. The kitchen sent out two pasta dishes with mushrooms, peas and peppers in a light garlic wine base. Both dishes were average, nothing we would ever recommend or want... More

This has become our Christmas Diner for several years now. The kids and Kids are all out west and we prefer traveling in the off season. The Bella Vista has a fabulous menu. Be prepared for 2-3 hours at the table. That's a good thing in our mind. Starters are great but you better be hungry. Spouse always gets a... More

Tuscan Salad topped with onion rings that had been fried together, not separated into rings, just one clump. Greasy too. Large chunks of blue cheese, like half of a persons thumb size. Not at all appealing. Companions Caprese Salad had tomatoes that were either sliced too thick or too thin to the point that they werent even slices. Buffet featured... More

This is a large restaurant in a very nice hotel, so it's clear they have the manpower to fully staff a restaurant the way it should be done. Tables are well-spaced and the noise is just loud enough to keep your own conversation from being overheard. The menu is creative and just the descriptions of the dishes alone make you... More
