This was a night out with friends. We had excellent service from Chris and the meal was delicious. It certainly met our expectations and we will return as soon as we can.

We have been going to the Samoset for about 21 years and have dined in Marcel's as well as Bella Vita. Although we love the renovations, we are not as keen on the dining experience. We ate there on a Friday night and could not even carry on a conversation due to the loud live jazz band. The actual music would have been lovely but not the decibel level. Likewise the food is ok not great and not really much variety. Marcel's offered more choice. The Samoset management group should figure out if they want to offer fine dining along with a relaxed atmosphere or whether they want to be a loud noisy pub with no ambience. A suggestion would be to open up a bar area situated away from La Bella Vita and the Enoteca Lounge. Hope they actually read this review. In general if you want a relaxing dining experience there are many much nicer restaurants in the surrounding area.

This was our fourth time staying at Samoset but the first since this restaurant replaced Marcel's. This is a beautiful space with tiered seating and some private dining areas. The only detraction from the ambience was a really terrible lounge singer who started wailing partway through our dinner and our table was located close to the lounge entrance. We were served water and bread by a runner very promptly but had to ask the hostess to summon our waitress. After that, the service was very acceptable. The menu selections and food were outstanding! I thought the prices were reasonable for a first class resort. This wouldn't be an every day selection but for a nice dinner on vacation at a beautiful resort - this fit the bill.

La Bella Vita inside the Samoset Hotel is excellent, especially the service. Chris was our favorite server....He was very friendly and helpful with meal choices, but also knew when to give us some time to enjoy our meal. I actually forgot my credit card at the table and a few minutes later, Chris came running after me to get me my card before I left for the night. He could have easily set it aside and forgot about it but he took the effort to chase me down and get it to his forgetful guest,

At the Lounge, Elijah, Brandon and Trevor were friendly as usual and made wonderful drinks for us.

Thanks to all of you. We had a wonderful Anniversary.

This restaurant is located on the grounds of samoset resort. The food along with the service was excellent. Although we could not see the view outside from the restaurant, I imagine that it would be amazing during the day as the restaurant is directly looking out to the ocean. We would go back again for sure before long.
