Giving Up On Sama, 7/10/2018
Reviewer: RC from Santa Barbara, CA
Poor reservation planning: a group of us actually had a reservation at 5:45 and at 7:15 were told the table would be occupied at 7:30 and we needed to leave. Oh, but "no rush of course." This time crunch was of course not communicated when the reservation was made. Also, is it too much to ask the bartender to actually stir the cocktail made, rather than slop it together with all the vodka on top? If I wanted to sip ONLY vodka, I could pay the same amount for a couple of shot bottles and some scratchers at Presidio Market and get some fresh air while doing it.

Yikes, what happened to a previous favorite?, 6/5/2017

From the beginning, this has long been a favorite and re-inforced even just 6 months ago. But our recent visit failed on all aspects, the worst being the unacceptably filthy seating bench cushion with stains and glops from who knows how long. Sambals tasted canned and no longer fresh. There was a major disconnect between the offered menu and the reservation website menu and the preparation of what limited choices they did offer was sadly mediocre, with a bizarre order of presentation. Was this an off night? I would give them that consideration, if it were not for the very disgusting stained seat cushions. Someone clearly is no longer watching the store. We loved you once, and want you to get your game back.
