This was a very nice dinner. Staff was very welcoming and very friendly. Cocktails were well prepared. The wine by the glass list was limited, but the selections were good, and not overpriced. Our steaks were the correct temperature and high quality. A most enjoyable evening. On a side note, it was Prom weekend. The staff was very good at... More

Our anniversary dinner here on April 23rd could not have been more perfect. From the extremely welcoming hostess, to the elegant setting, and view from the 30th floor, all was exceptional. We ordered the filet and grilled lobster (surf and turf) and it was prepared perfectly. Steaks arrive with a slight crust topper from a selection of your choosing along... More

Bill (and Mrs. Bill)....thank you for choosing us to mark your anniversary and for the generous helping of praise! We're glad, especially, to hear how much you enjoyed the service of Rick Ramsey.

We took my brother-in-law and some friends to Nick & Nino's for dinner. We had a great time, good food, nice atmosphere. Four of us had steak and one had the bass.

Hi Shauna - so glad to hear you made us your choice for your special occasion. For better or worse, our lobster bisque does have a bit of a kick to it, but the overwhelming consensus seems to be that's a good thing! There is nothing worse than a salad drowned in dressing, however, no matter how good that dressing... More

Food is delicious any time you come to this place. Definitely not easy on the wallet. I've gotten a few different appetizers here..all were good, as well as sea bass, meatloaf, chicken for entree. Good atmosphere, very modern.

Hi Leanne - thank you for taking the time to offer your comments and we're very glad to hear you like the food (and, it seems, you keep coming back...!). We are not, admittedly, Springfield's best option for the budget-conscious, but shouldn't everyone treat themselves every once in a while? We think so....and we think when they do it should... More

Probably my favorite place in Sprigfield, though quite pricey, so I don't go often. That's notthat to say it's nott worth the price. The food is excellent, and there is is no better service anywhere.

Susie - thank you for taking the time to tell us how much you enjoyed the meal and the service.
