My husband and I are here last week and both thought that the meals were fantastic. Our waitress was attentive and helpful, service was great. It was expensive but I'm prepared to pay for an experience like this. The ambiance was nice, low lighting and as we are quite late there were only a few other tables in. We both... More

So after my first review I was invited back to give Nick and Stef's another shot. We were given a table in a alcove area on the side of the front door, it was quieter and less crowded. Our server was attentive and friendly. We started with shrimp cocktail which was well done and the shrimp was cooked perfectly. I... More

The title really sums it up for me. I was told the Nick & Stefs was one of the top 10 steakhouses in NYC... I find this a little hard to swallow. Meals for my wife and I we good but not great like the price. The baked clams were a real disappointment... Do not order them, essentially chopped class... More

My partner and I ate here on Christmas Day and we couldn't be happier with the food and the service that we received. We chose this restaurant and booked a table weeks in advance because we were happy with the A-la-carte menu that was offered - this is something that not many restaurants offer on Christmas Day. We had the... More

If you are looking for a great steakhouse near Penn Station Nick and Steff's should be on your list. Great friendly service and very good food made our evening meal an exclamation point at the end of a long day.

We had a fine meal here, but I agree with other reviewers that this restaurant is probably popular because of its location and not much else. The steaks were cooked well and the service was decent, but it felt very much like a franchise restaurant without much character. Its likely a good spot for people going to MSG, but I... More

We went here last night before the Ranger game. We are 2 people and the hostess tried to seat us in a space that I could not even fit through.
