The restaurant inside Severance Hall is now known as Sammy's. Apparently, since it caters to a crowd that arrives an hour or two before each orchestra performance, (all at once) the all-inclusive buffet format is logical. The buffet is $40 and includes an appetizer, salad, several entree items, as well as coffee and GOOD desserts. This past week was my 2nd time dining there and the service staff is good, the atmosphere is nice and I liked that my aunt (a vegetarian) was even satisfied with the food options. The only downsides are that customer traffic is moving past your table to and from the buffet alot and there was only (1) appetizer offering on my last visit, a creamy seafood soup, which I typically don't eat on my new diet. (it looked good though!)

not romantic, but good quality

I went here on a date... never again. The place is actually quite good. People warned me it would be really expensive, but the entrees are only like $22 and it has the food selection, exquisite taste, and elegant decor of a $40 entree place. But I can't see any reason why I'd ever go again. The hours are very odd and being surrounded by the fast-paced orchestra patrons robs it of any magic. Parking is a challenge, as it's in the middle of a college campus (I just walked since my date and I went to Case). But what strikes me is that the atmosphere is imposing in an undefineable way. It's classy, but in a really fake, pretentious way. It had the same effect on my date -- she'd always been so warm, and was that day, too, until we actually entered the place and suddenly everything changed...
