I ate at Nick and Sam's last night with friends and overall it was a nice meal. The steak was very good but I was underwhelmed by the sides. We ordered half orders of all the sides and even the half orders were massive. The portions were just grotesque. Really just over the top and unnecessary. When the food arrived... More

Went in with a large group on a weeknight - the place was hopping. It's a fancy place but you can dress business casual and not feel uncomfortable. Hey, you're in Texas after all. Excellent service by Ivan (get in his section if you can - he and his team know how to treat their guests. Yes, he has a... More

This is a Mortons on steroids but it was seriously superior. The menu was varied, the options were interesting, the wine list was strong. The food was fantastic. Lots of steak cooked on the bones for better flavor. The chef will debone or not--your choice. Expensive but totally worth it.

This steak house is a cut above most of the others. The steaks are prepared perfectly. The sides are large and the service is what you would expect form a steak house with a piano player in the middle of the serving area for the waiters. I would say the only drawback is the wine prices far exceed most other... More

This place came highly recommended to me from one of my best friends. I was in Dallas for a business trip and so I attended solo. The whole experience was amazing. I loved the sides and starters, but really the steak was worth the whole bill! I want to go back not just for dinner, but because the whole experience... More

They don't take reservations for brunch so get there mid-morning or you'll be waiting a while; no later than 11:15am or so. They have the standard brunch items. Every one of them made to order. The best is the do it yourself Bloody Mary bar. Stocked with plenty of spices, sauces and veggies to add to your drink. Perfect. The... More

Went here with colleagues while in town on business, recommended by a friend who is local. We went late on a Sunday night, and it was packed with large groups of people. Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly. The food was excellent. I had the caprese salad and 10 oz filet mignon, which was cooked to perfection. Our group... More

Ordered the bone in filet which is a pricey steak, I asked for medium rare, but the steak was VERY rare, couldnt really eat most of it. The appetizer was great I had fried lobster tail, and the salad was great also. The place has great atmosphere and would be really nice for dinner date. Overal, I would give them... More
