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... More

Awesome joint for a steak.....and great drinks. Just beautifully done. Vibe, decor, service this place has it all.....especially high prices for their specials. 135.00 bucks for surf and turf....ouch....I was never given the price but I learned....I should have asked. This was the only complaint...everything else was spot on. Great place for clients but make sure you don't make the... More

I'm not impressed with all the Dallas flash anymore... I could care less which celebrity has or is eating at a particular restaurant... or how much leased Bling is parked in front with the valet. I go primarily for the culinary experience... and subsequently for the ambiance. On this occasion, we had started our evening at another prime steak place... More

This was a fabulous restaurant. The food was outstanding, and the service, atmosphere and artwork was in keeping with the food (outstanding!). For all you gentlemen - I don't think I've ever seen so many pretty ladies in one place before! There was a lot of energy in that place - a little loud - but definitely fun and worth... More

So I've been to Kenny's Woodfire grill and seafood, Bob's steak and chop house namely few of those good steak places and wanted to try this place with the amazing reviews we read online- both on trip advisor and otherwise. People, this place is all about ' high-class super make-you-feel-rich service' , but sadly it ends there. The food is... More

First let me say that the food is perfect. You get what you ordered the way you ordered it. Portions are large so make sure you have folks to share with. My party included 6 people - most ordered the filet, but one ordered Steak Oscar. Everyone raved about their food and the level of service. This is not an... More

Had the following dishes. Appetizers: Tuna tartare, carpaccio (Tartare was good...they put some kind of cotton candy on it, then douse it in a sauce, it was pretty good. Not the best, but ok. It came with some fried dough chips) Carpaccio was ok too. Entree: 16 oz ribeye, med rare, lobster mac and cheese Ribeye was delicious! Absolutely the... More

We arrived and there was a Ferrari, a Maserati, a Lamborghini and several Porches in the lot. Wow. Host was telling us about which famous people were eating there. Wow again I guess. We were shown to a table in the front but asked for a different one that would not be so noisy. I don’t think we could have... More
