We had some really good steaks and and a very nice birthday dinner here. The manager was very courteous in visiting at the table and even providing us with a complimentary glass of champagne. Very tasty dinner all in all. However---and it is a significant however---this routine that the servers go through of talking a mile a minute, demonstrating steaks... More

First time trying Nick and Sams. I always order the steak however I've NEVER EVER finished a steak. I finished my whole meal. The steak was soooooo delicious I couldn't stop eating it. Valet parking was simple, we had reservations and didn't even wait longer than one minute to be seated and the place seemed packed. GREAT SERVICE, GREAT FOOD!!!!... More

By far best Steak house and best ambience. It's a happening place and I always bring friends here from out of town and they can't wait to return for the overall experience. I have been going to this restaurant since it opened More than 15 years ago, and it's still one of the best in Dallas. Chef Samir and his... More

That pretty much sums up one of the finest dining experiences I've ever had in my life. In Dallas for a guys weekend and we could not have picked a better place to have dinner. First of all the ambiance is VERY lively--almost more like a hip bar or club than a restaurant. This is not a place to have... More

There are some excellent restaurants in Dallas and this is one of them..... but with so many other options in DFW, 350 + tip for 4 mixed drinks, 3 steaks, Sea Bass and 3 sides, is a over the top, even for the Park Cities. Save some money and hit Al Beinat's, Bob's or one of the other numerous steak... More

My wife had the crab cakes and we shared the roasted brussel sprouts. The service was excellent and all the personnel was very friendly. Overall, a... More

The menu was plentiful plus we were shown the cuts of meat that wernt on the menu. My business partner ordered the 12 oz Center Cut Rib Eye and... More

I ordered a salad, dressing on the side. good call as otherwise would have been dressing with a touch of salad. We also ordered jalapeño calamari and a delicious lamb.

By far one of the best restaurant experiences I have ever had. I was able to snag a table in the back room for valentines day for my wife and I. The back room makes for such a more romantic atmosphere and it is all candle lit and the walls are completely covered with wine bottles. The food presentation was... More

I cannot believe how disappointed I am after tonight's experience at this restaurant. I have had several great meals in the pst at Nick and Sam's but tonight was BAD. Started out great. Service was super but we were early (6:30). As the night it got worse. We inquired about the fried lobster as we were curious. Our waiter said... More
