We had an outstanding experience at Nick & Nino's. We had a variety of meals, from steak to scallops and grouper to chicken. All of our meals were very good and I highly recommend the Mushroom and Goat Cheese Polenta as a side dish. The service was very good and the entire staff could not have been more professional.

Eddie - thank you for making time to offer your compliments. We're glad you enjoyed your meal and the service. The term "professional wait staff" is one used a little liberally in our business (in my humble opinion), but ours is truly something special and you won't find service as good at any other restaurant in Springfield. Or that Goat... More

My sister and I planned dinner at Nick and Nino's as a surprise for our mother's birthday. The staff couldn't have been more helpful in arranging the dinner, especially Denise, the Maitre 'd. She was amazing. If you need help making arrangements for a special night you can definitely count on her! Her personal touch makes all the difference. The... More

Hi Dawn - thank you so much for the kind words. We're glad you chose us for your mom's birthday, and it sounds like a good time was had by all. Yes, Denise is an amazing gal, some would say almost a force of nature, and she delights in handling the most finite details perfectly. And, yes, a special thanks... More

The restaurant is small, atop the Hilton. Reservations are hard to come by, book early, however if you are a business traveler like me typically if you call they can always get you in sitting at the bar. The dishes are Al la carte, including a salad with dinner, which drives the price up. The steak is good, but in... More

Celebrating our anniversary with dinner and Nick & Neno's, my wife and I had a great time. The steaks, sides, bread, and dessert were all fantastic. The service was certainly the best we've had in Illinois...perhaps the best we've experienced ever. It was fun to order different courses from an iPad menu at the table, and the explanations from the... More

This restaurant is on the top floor of the hotel. It's a quaint restaurant with nice views. The filet mignon was cooked to perfection and flavorful. Service was prompt and cordial.

Wife and I celebrated our 14th anniversary here. Told them it was a special night so they put us overlooking the capital building at sunset. Pretty nice way to start dinner.

We went here for my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. My dad had called the weekend before to make a reservation for a window table, but they couldn't guarantee it at the time. The hostess even called the day of our reservation to let him know she was still working on it. We had little hope at that point, so imagine... More

We visited Nick & Nino's for a business dinner after our conference ended for the day for dinner. We were all blown away by the views of Springfield, the warm customer service and the outstanding selections we ordered for dinner.

Nick & Mino's. What a sublime place. Relaxing shades of grey, windows all around overlooking the capitol complex in Springfield, Illinois.
