Loved everything about it from the view to the food. At the top of the Hilton in Springfield you can see everything around town. The food was excellent. My sister and I were there and wanted to split the 40 oz. rib eye which they did without batting an eye. Definitely would go back.

What did I like about Nick & Nino's? First - the view; Second - the food; Third - the service - and not necessarily in that order. When you make your reservation - be sure to tell them you want the window - but make your reservation a week in advance. Seating request fill up fast I am told!!

Our experience at Nick & Nino's was absolutely horrible. I will never visit the establishment again. Yesterday, I purchased $125 in gift cards from a ShopLOLDeals promotion sponsored by the local WFMB radio station. We had crab cakes, Caesar salad, house salad, 10 oz filet without crust or sauce, and a 14 oz strip with mushroom truffle crust. The food... More

Dear Gregg - we are awfully sorry for the communication mix-up regarding the coupons you purchased. As indicated in the apology we sent to you previously, we hope the gift card we send to you will help make up for the experience and entice you into a return visit. Thank you for taking the time to offer your feedback. More

We had dinner on a Friday night. The hostess was very accommodating and friendly. She sat us by the windows where we had a awesome view of the Capital and surrounding grounds. We had the prosciutto appetizer which was very tasty. My husband had a steak, i had the scallops. Both were perfectly prepared! We split the Nicks potatoes side... More

I was reluctant to go but so glad I did. Service was so outstanding. Our waiter was fabulous. He was knowledgeable about the food and wine. The lobster bisque was out of this world. Everything was delicious. An amazing date night. I can't wait to go back.

Dear 2Hot - while we're not sure why you were reluctant to go (afraid of heights?), we're sure glad you did. Not quite what to say to "life changing" other than that if you think the Lobster Bisque is out of this world (and it is!), you need to come back and try Nick's Potatoes, the Firecracker Shrimp or any...

We had attentive service, delicious food and a friendly staff. The homemade lavosh was out of this world. The filets were flavorful and perfectly cooked and the key lime pie was as authentic as anything we have eaten in the Keys. Two nice touches....a visit from the chef and the dessert menu on an IPad with pictures. What's not to... More

This place is amazing. The view is breathtaking and the food is delicious. Atmosphere is really something special. It is a little more formal than a lot of places, but a nice treat for a special occasion.

Thank you Jennifer.....we like the phrase "top notch"......you don't hear it very much anymore, but I think it's very fitting for what our talented team tries to present to each guest. A bit old school, perhaps? In any event.....we'll take it and hope you come back and see us again soon! More

Despite being at the more expensive end of the price range I can see why this gets a number one rating. The food is excellent with some nice touches that set it apart from regular restaurant servings and there is of course the view. The restaurant is quite small and only a few tables are adjacent to the windows but... More
