Excellent place to go with friends and have a good time

This place was amazing for the type of night I wanted to have. It was my wife and I first Valentine’s Day as a married couple. So this particular place was great. Great Dance floor/music, Good food, Good service. Great price. My wife got the shrimp while I had a pizza. She drank. I watched her drink. It was a great night. I’ll deff be returning w/ more people.

Excellent service. Fantastic food. Sambuca 360 never disappoints.

We have been to Sambuca down town many times for dinner and dancing for my friends birthday, but we wanted to stay closer to home this time so we chose Sambuca 360. Our waitress was very friendly and patient w/ us wanting to sip on our drinks before ordering our dinner. I had the margarita pizza w/ a gorgonzola salad which were very good and my other two friends had the salmon oscar and the shrimp & crab scampi which they both thoroughly enjoyed. After dinner we split a bread pudding that was amazing. When I received the confirmation call earlier that day I knew we would only have two hours at our table because of how busy they are on weekend nights and then if we wanted to stay longer we would have to move to the bar area. It turns out where they sat us was part of the dance floor and our table along w/ many others were being removed to open the dance floor. The only issue I have with that is our reservation was at 7:30pm and by the time our meal was complete 2hrs later there were still open tables around the restaurant that weren't going to be removed for the dance floor so I'm not sure why weren't given one of those tables and been able to stay longer, enjoy more drinks and dance. By the time we were done w/ our meal the two bars were packed and standing room only so we made the choice to leave w/out dancing and we walked across to another restaurant for more drinks. Although we had a good meal we decided that we would continue to make the drive down town when we want to have dinner and dancing because the atmosphere is much more conducive to enjoying both.

Great food and service from our waitress. First time in and won’t be the last.

Great food, good ambiance, fun for a date night.

We thought we would be able to hear music but that didn't kick in until 9:30 pm. Our 2-hour limit ended at 9. We were there for our anniversary but no one treated us any different and our waitress was not very friendly.

If there were zero stars I would give that. The waitress was downright rude and insulting from the get go. She wasn’t available even for my guests to put in their drink order. No water was served at the table. One of my guests had to hunt her down to give her the drink order. We couldn’t order our food because she was nowhere to be found. Oh, while ordering a second round of orders for which I had to first of all find her, she asked me very rudely “who is paying for all this”. I’ve been there enough times to know that it should have been - “just so you know we have a 20 dollars minimum to separate tabs”. We were actually wanting to order food but her attitude was felt by all at the table. We went down the street to Samui Thai to eat. Didn’t think a well planned milestone birthday could be ruined by a waitress who didn’t want to do her job.

Food and dancing!! The food is good and the dancing is great! The music and live band made for a great evening of dancing. You should book dinner reservations to make sure you get in. You can order some food and drinks and have a front row seat to dance the night away!

Not what I expected kind of disappointing compared to all of the reviews.
by OpenTable Diner on October 28, 2017
This was my 50th birthday. The drinks were watered down and the waitress was less than attentive. The appetizers were good but the pizza was over cooked to the point of being hard. Regarding the band...we have been there several times and have always loved the bands. Last night the band was not good. The lead singer yelled more than sang and their shtick was annoying, not funny. Overall, a very disappointing evening.
by OpenTable Diner on October 20, 2017
Waitress and service great. Food was average at best. Live band , dancing started at 930 - exceptional entertainment.
by OpenTable Diner on October 20, 2017
Great service and the food was amazing. I recommend the shrimp and crab dip.
by GlobalFoodie on October 15, 2017
No host at the door, both the lady at the bar that asked our group to just come in and our waitress didn't know they had reservations with Open Table. Service was slow, in a Sunday lunch with the restaurant only 30% full. We will not come back, as the food was unimpressive. We had the Gyro (tasteless), the house salad (OK), a seafood bisque (too thick, no one enjoyed it), and a french dip (also not recommended).
by luv2eatout on October 07, 2017
Long wait for drinks and food. Waitress tried hard but was slammed.
by RonN on September 07, 2017
Great service, great food, great music. Went for the music, was not expecting the food and service to be so good.
by J1245 on September 02, 2017
Went for my birthday and it had a nice atmosphere. We enjoyed the food and the DJ was great, actually he was better than the band (Electric Circus) that night.
by Alex on September 01, 2017
We went there to celebrate our anniversary. The ambience was very nice and the live band was awesome! Since it attracts an older crowd (no teenagers!), it was really nice and fun.
by OpenTable Diner on August 26, 2017
Drinks are way over priced and food is okay. I don't think the area has as many nice restaurants so they get away with those prices. It's still a chain though so keep that in mind....our waitress was good but the management rushed us through our dinner to free up the table.
by OpenTable Diner on August 19, 2017
Celebrated my birthday and thought it would be a fun place to have dinner and dancing. We all thought the food quality did not earn the high price tag. They did not have enough staff so service was slow in getting refills on drinks at the table. That being said, the waitress was very nice and did her best. The band was good but the music was very loud. Will probably choose another venue next year.
by T1234 on August 18, 2017
More for music and drinks than food
by OpenTable Diner on August 17, 2017
The food was ok. My hamburger was not good. But enjoyed the people and Emerald City band was awesome!!!
by Kitag1 on August 12, 2017
Pretty terrible, it was so empty we felt awkward being there at 5pm on a Saturday. Food was unremarkable
by OpenTable Diner on August 04, 2017
Started great (like 4 stars) then turned into an extremely poor experience (0 stars) Went for an anniversary dinner - we were greeted and seated by a very sweet hostess who was very accommodating. Waitress was attentive, and the food was tasty, but over priced a bit - but, anniversary... so i didn't care. Band started up about halfway through our meal and they were very very good. All good right? Well, we made the mistake of sticking around as the club transformation occurred, as we were having such a great time.. trouble is, with the club scene came the super-rude, power-trip bouncers, the VIP jerks and the pervs standing in the middle of the dance floor checking out the women hoping for a nip-slip or something. Even though my bill approached the $300 mark, it became nearly impossible to get a drink from our waitress, as she got pulled to the VIP-poser section. (Staring at empty glasses fo over 30 mins was frustrating) I went over to the VIP section and stood behind their little self-important rope and tried flag her down, and was literally physically accosted by the vip section bouncer who claimed i was to leave the area immediately. Next time she came out of the section to go to the bar, we chased her down and demanded my check and left instead of purchasing more drinks. If we go again, i would plan dinner a little earlier so we could get in on the first hour or so of the band, then leave and go somewhere less rude and pretentious. All the irritations of the poser club scene come to fruition at this place after 11pm.

It was my birthday and I loved it.
by OpenTable Diner on July 14, 2017
Sooooooo fun!
by OpenTable Diner on June 24, 2017
Went here for my birthday.. food was good, drinks were awesome and the band was great.. staff was amazing as well. Will definitely be going back.
by OpenTable Diner on June 17, 2017
Celebrating our 21st anniversary, which was noted on the reservation. We were seated at a high top table near the door, which wasn't romantic. There was no mention of the anniversary and my requests were not recognized or honored. I voiced my dissatisfaction to the manager and he acknowledged the error and very kindly made it right. Food was amazing and dinner service was great. I was expecting a more formal dinner but it was an extremely casual atmosphere. I will be back!
by tjgoodeats on June 13, 2017
Great food. Loved the indoor/outdoor seating. Was not crowded for lunch which was surprising!
by AmyB on June 09, 2017
I would not recommend this place. The food was late and the service was not good. We went there because of the live music and the music was ok. Nothing exceptional though. It may be good for a drink but absolutely not a dinner venue.
by OpenTable Diner on May 27, 2017
We were celebrating our 17th wedding anniversary. Britney and Taylor assured that our experience would be memorable! The Chef brought his A game to the celebration as well. This was our first time at this establishment but it will not be our last! Rob and Steph May 27, 2017

Sambyca 360 is one of my favorite places. However our waitress on Saturday ignored us. I had to eat my meal without water or soda. She also ignored the table that was there before us so much that they had to ask my husband several times to ask her to do things for them. However she consistently waited on the table next to us. Since the two tables she ignored had black people at them and the other table had asians and whites it looks really bad.

We were here for a birthday celebration. We had great seats to watch the band so ask for it when you go. Very relaxed, good ambience and comfortable. The only thing I expected was a little "something" for the birthday boy, but nothing was offered. Nice place though!
by Mariya on May 10, 2017
Wednesday crowd was not up to dancing ... our group was hoping to get to dance. The band's break seemed too long ... had to leave before they got back.
by OpenTable Diner on April 29, 2017
The chicken fried ribeye was great. No grisle like regular chicken fried steak. My wife had salmon oscar and it was cooked perfectly and the hollandaise sauce didn't hurt. The waitress was very attentive and enjoyable. The hostess talked to us about the mother's day brunch and helped make special arrangements for us. Overall the experience was extremely pleasing and enjoyable for us.
by LatriceH42 on April 28, 2017
For my first time, I was really impressed by the ambience of the restaurant. I went to see my friends in Good Question band. The band is awesome and the restaurant was an amazing back drop for them. My waitress was very attentive, despite the large Friday night crowd.
by BMarieB on April 16, 2017
Had Easter Buffet. Thoroughly enjoyed. The food and waitress were exceptional. Would eat here again.
by OpenTable Diner on April 15, 2017
Table wasn't cleaned off, left sticky from previous diner. No water offered. Bartenders couldn't make a consistent drink - same drink order, two totally different cocktails came out. Server only said something after I sent it back "oh yeah, different bartender", then she went back to flirting w some guy at another table. Food was bland. Location is good, and got a patio table. At 7pm on a Saturday. That alone should have been a clue. Won't be going back.
by OpenTable Diner on April 07, 2017
We had a great time and our waitress was outstanding! Great birthday celebration!
by YouGetOneShot on April 07, 2017
Move along, this is not the restaurant you're looking for. And if you remember what Sambuca used to be, RUN away. It's a sports bar with lousy food, inept service, pitiful cocktails and a pretentious attitude right out of the 80's. No class and no hope of recovery.
by OpenTable Diner on March 30, 2017
We decided to drive over to Plano from Denton to enjoy date night that included dinner and dancing. Downtown fever was playing and we had a wonderful table thanks to the staff who set us up to see the band. Great experience!
by OpenTable Diner on March 23, 2017
The food was acceptable, but for being almost empty in a Thursday evening, the service was abnormally slow. Mixed drinks were too strong to really be enjoyable
by OpenTable Diner on March 18, 2017
We were there for my daughter's bachelorette party. I had confirmed directly with the restaurant that we would be eating, drinking and staying for the live music. There was confusion at check in about keeping our table for the night, but the manager straightened it out. We had a blast , great service from Chelsie, always on top of everything, orders were all correct. The band, Space Rockers, was awesome. We had a good party!
by OpenTable Diner on March 17, 2017
Very nice menu selection for bar food. Great service!
by OpenTable Diner on March 11, 2017
If you want an expensive drink and a band. This is for you.. otherwise avoid at all costs.....
by OpenTable Diner on March 03, 2017
Whoever the security or front door guys are who are required to sweep the front of the establishment are extremely rude to the point where I actually had to say to one of them "I'm a customer I've already asked you twice to stop sweeping the leaves on my feet" he replied, " i'm not anywhere near your feet." Do I have to tell him that I'm wearing $1300 shoes? It shouldn't matter. They lack respect and cooth.
by OpenTable Diner on February 16, 2017
This was our first time going, everything was great from the food to the live band, the waitress was awesome. Definitely recommend this resturant.

Brittany (hostess) was super sweet when she called to confirm our reservation. As she reminded me of the 2 hour limit, she said that she'd try to move us to a table that wouldn't require us to move after the 2 hours. She even greeted us upon arrival and reminded me that she was hoping to get us to a different table. Our server was good. Unfortunately, we were all very UNIMPRESSED with the bouncers who showed up at the table, said NO words to us, picked up purses, drinks and started to move our chairs. I reached over to get my drink from the bouncer and he seemed super put off, almost like he wasn't going to give it to me. He also had my friends purse in his hands (she was in the restroom). We hadn't gotten our check yet. And the server hadn't mentioned that the bouncers were now picking up the tables. (We'd been enjoying ourselves so much that we weren't aware that it was 9:35p). I told the bouncer that I wished he'd have asked us to pick up our belongings/drinks and not just bombard our table. He was super defensive and argumentative. :( Our group of 6 spent +/- $500 in the previous 2 hours and I would have expected more courtesy than we were shown. I've been to Sambuca many times before, some with reservations, some without and have never experienced this. I truly hope that this procedure (or lack thereof) is addressed before happening to other patrons. It felt violating and extremely disrespectful.

My husband and I are regulars and often bring friends who have never been. This night was awful!!!! We had a reservation and stood at the front for 30 min waiting to be seated. Then, We were seated behind a brick wall, ,couldn't see the band!! Waitress never brought a menu or even asked if we were there for dinner. Manager did offer a free drink for the wait. Yep, had our free drink, then left. Was there for less than an hour. We usually shut the place down. Asked to speak to Manger but he wasn't there. We've been going to Sambuca for 5 years. It seems like the quality is going down with each time we visit. Bummer. We really love the place.
