We went on a Friday night and it was not worth the long wait. The service and the food were both disappointing! Music can only make up for so much of the experience.

Samba room is a very nice place to go on a date. However I was a little disappointed that they don't play to many Brazilian music like Samba. The food is great and the service is awesome.

I enjoe Samba Room because they have good food and service, besides that they have great music I make me remember my Country. As a brasilian I am always lookind for places to listen Samba but the great thing about Samba Room is that they play all kinds of music.

How is it possible to have a reservation and still have to wait an entire hour for a table?? This place is COMPLETELY unprofessional, the management staff obviously have no idea what they are doing!! This place is fine if you clear your calendar for the entire day and wish to stand in a standing room only bar waiting an hour even though you made reservations! And we werent the only ones, there was a list of people who had made reservations that waited as long as some longer than we did! After an hour we left and vowed never to return! It's great that they have a band, but who cares if you cant eat and have to listen to them from the waiting area?!

I went here becuase of great revies and was very disappointed. The service was the worst I have experienced anywhere, when we were eventually served we got the wrong food. Our server was obviously very busy, maybe they were short staffed or something, but a very expensive experience.

This is a fantastic restaurant from the food, to the service to the water view. The menu has such an interesting variety and the food presentation is wonderful. Great outside bar area - perfect for a happy hour.

Late for our reservation we called to say we would be coming in, they say no problem.
We were seated promptly when we arrived. The food was EXCELLENTE!!! As a chef myself, I was impressed with the Chilean Seabass, and the Satay selection. The ceviche was very good,and my only criticism was that they could have been more generous on the serving. Our waitress was excellent, she was polite, funny, and gave us all the time we needed with out being too "present".
For you Salsa dancers... check out Saturday nites late. We danced til 2:00 a.m. with a great live group playing. Awsome!!!

Went there this weekend, great service, competent wait staff, friendly hosts/hostess's, food was fabulous. Our order got messed up and the entree was taken off the bill - no questions asked. Top notch, will go back!

This place is located in the heart of tourist city (I-Drive area). It caters to them and them alone, with high prices and less than stellar food. In fact, I didn't see a Cuban person, let alone a Hispanic person, in the entire place! Not what I would call authentic.

I read the reviews here, talked to friends and business associates that sampled the Samba, then decided to take my wife there for her birthday.
This place is worth the trip! The food and service is excellent. Plus, our party of 6 ordered everything - including bottled water and wine and the bill was just under $200!
Trust me - you want to try the Samba Room for yourself!

Minty rum mojitos, '30s streamlined curves, white-jacketed waiters and filmy curtains evoke the glamour of pre-Castro Havana, while the percussive "foreground music"--an eclectic mix from reggae to samba--drums home the…
