I travel the continental US on business and frequently end up dining in steak restaurants as my boss and customers love them. I ate at Nick and Sam's on a recent trip and was thrilled the second I walked in. The atmosphere was lively, the service at the bar was friendly and the steak was among the best I ever... More

My wife and i had dinner here last night for the first time. It was a wonderful experience from the front door till the desert. We had drinks at the bar first and were served by an excellent bartender. Our waiter was excellent, food was fantastic and the creme brulee was one of the best i have ever had.

I don't know where exactly to start, but from beginning to end, there were mistakes and poor service. First, we were seated 25 minutes after our 7:30 reservation time. We had to go ask for our table a second time and then they seated us right away. Seemed they forgot about us. After taking our drink and food orders, our... More

Is a great place, fun, elegant, very Cool place. The decor and ambient is fantastic, great service, great food. Just a place you should visit for while visiting Dallas. the only not as possitive thing is that it was a little noisy as the place was totally packed and it was hard to listen to the great music that the...

Upscale place with lots of people on expense accounts. We had the private party room in the back. The food, drink and service were all excellent but the prices are on par - thank goodness someone else was paying.

We were seated immediately as we came in, very friendly staff and terrific waiter. The food was delicious and of course we ordered more than we could possibly eat!

Went there two nights in a town whilst in town on business. Extremely busy every night of the week. We had to wait at the crowded bar for over an hour both nights (Tuesday and Wednesday) but that was ok because the bar was so great for people watching. Lots of pretty young seemingly single girls and lots of old... More

The food was good. Fried Calamari, Wedge Salad, Ribeye and Key Lime Pie. The restaurant was crowded with lots of business meetings going on and was not very conducive to quiet conversation at our table

The restaurant is upscale, do dress up. The food is very pricey, good for impressing dates and clients. It's prepared well. Service is polite. The wait staff is always bustling, never a dull moment for them. Filet is very good, and so are the cocktails.

Nick & Sam's (not the grill) is a very upscale steakhouse in Dallas. Great for any occasion and can get pretty pricey. Even with a reservation there will probably be a wait on a weekend during prime dining hours. There is a free caviar bar while you wait and a packed bar in the back to order drinks. Lot's of...
