My husband and I visited Nick and Nino's for my birthday dinner. I have been here once before for a medical conference (very pleasant experience, good tapas style food) and decided to go back for my birthday. I chose the pan seared red grouper and my husband chose a steak. I can not even describe the flavor and delicacy for... More

Springfield is the central meeting point for our family. We all came 100 miles to meet for a special occasion. This was our first and now only time here. I anticipated the expense and am not one to be picky. I did expect some standard items though. The waiters do not tie their bow ties. I really am unsure what... More

Dear Sally - thank you for taking the time to offer your feedback after your recent meal. We are, naturally, very disappointed to have disappointed you. Some of what you didn't care for about the restaurant (the untied bow ties, the wine list on the iPad, etc) are things that a lot of other people absolutely love about us. And... More

Service, food and view were great. If you have the chance, arrive early and enjoy some time in the lounge before dinner. Enjoy the views of Springfield with one of their martinis or other drink of choice. They do have a children's menu for those of us with young children. I think our children enjoyed this evening as much as... More

Thank you, Tim, for taking the time to offer your feedback. We're sincerely glad you enjoyed the food and the service.

What we like to do is direct people to the outside, view elevators... More

I was looking forward to a quiet evening with my date, the wait staff practically hover over your table leaving no room for intimacy.

Hi Amy - we're sorry you thought the service was overly attentive during your last visit with us. It's true that genuine fine dining service can be a little heavy handed for some under certain cirsumstances. When you come back again, and we hope you do, please do mention to the hostess or manager that you and your dining partner... More

The food was great! we really enjoyed it. My wife and I visited for our Anniversary, it was disappointing that we were not able to get a window seat, but we were ok with that. Then when we got to the restaurant, we found that one of the window seats was completely taken by a large LOUD/Drunk group. It was... More

We looked forward to a nice dinner, and it was a nice dinner. Denise is always a pleasant person to seat you. Bill was our server, which was fantastic. We ordered the fried egg rolls and the calamari. The calamari was not even luke warm...and kind of soggy. Was a little disappointed. The egg rolls were amazing!! We then ordered... More

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
