I took my wife on her birthday. We are calamari, caviar, two half sides and a Chardonnay cut. Too much food but amazing. We spend $270 with 2 glasses of wine and desert. I loved it. I highly recommend.

The food was terrific though not the best in Dallas. The wine list was not of the quality that I would expect in a first class steakhouse. Very limited in choice of European wines. The American ones were way overpriced. and mostly 2nd tier varieties. The place is very noisy and way too dark for my taste.

Total package. Atmosphere, service, menu, food quality, wine list, everything!! The meat cuts were superb and had equally superb prices. There were four of us, and we all had a different entree. We shared and we all loved each other's food as well. The sides are very large, and the cake servings are too. Our server was so fun and... More

It was my first time having dinner here after hearing about it for a long time. The service is extremely good from top to bottom. Everyone is dressed to the 9's. The food was very good. We had an appetizer sampler with fried lobster, shrimp cocktail, and crabcakes and they were all extremely tasty. Their steak presentation is top notch... More

Stopped in here one random weeknight to have dinner at the bar relatively late (9 pm). The entire place was standing room only and was insanely noisy. The place has more of a night club atmosphere as opposed to a steakhouse. I picked this spot because the steak I had at Nick and Sam's grill was one of the best... More

We loved everything about Nick and Sam's except one thing....the noise! It was sooooooo noisey in the restaurant that we were yelling across the table to hear each other and we could NOT hear the waiter tell us the specials. They packed everyone in like sardines. BUT...it was so worth it! The food was excellent, the service from Shawn was... More

We love this place. It's our favorite but it won't be on New Years Eve (at least with 10 pm reservations). At 9:45 when we arrived for our confirmed 10 pm reservation there was approximately 100 people trying to get seated (don't know if they had reservations?) They even had a "bouncer" at the check in counter and he was... More

Hands down the best steakhouse in Dallas! I have hit them all and keep coming back here. The service is impeccable and the food is to die for. The food tastes the way sex feels, was a quote from my husband .
