Thanks, Dawnie......glad to hear we helped make your friend's 60th special. And - just so you are aware - you can actually visit the Pinnacle Club right next door to the restaurant and you can order that very same soup (or appetizers, salads and desserts) in a more relaxed setting if you don't want the full-on dining experience.

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. It's true that you pay a premium for really good food and service (as you would anywhere, naturally), but life is short and we all need to treat ourselves occasionally, right? Or....better yet....find someone else to treat us occasionally! So... More

I have been to Nick and Nino's before and it was beyond amazing. I loved it so much that when my fiance asked me what I wanted to do on Valentine's day my first thought, for a perfect dinner, was Nick and Nino's. We made reservation with the hostess Denise. She was very thorough and made sure our night would... More

Arrived with reservation. Wait staff looked away. About four minutes later the kind of cuckoo hostess showed up and hugged my husband. Odd. We were seated, not at window, but we hadn't asked for a window so that was fine. The food was okay. The food was not excellent. The waiter was attentive. We got the brie appetizer which was...

My wife and I enjoyed our food but the combination of the price and the atmosphere turned us off. There is a great view from the restaurant but only half of the tables are near enough to the windows to see it. Despite the fact that those tables were open, we were seated across the room by the door. We... More

I am a frequent diner, love the experience and great tableside service. Had the most amazing flight of steaks with 3 different crusts and 3 different dipping sauces. Chef's potato's are dangerously addicting. I would recommend starting off with the Baked Brie. Thanks for a great night!
