Enjoyed a wonderful dinner last night at Nick and Nino's. This is simply the best restaurant in Springfield. The service was impeccable, the meal fantastic. It is a very fine dining experience.

Very friendly greeting and personalized service. Waiter was outstanding and very attentive. One of the best steaks I've ever had and surely one of the best in Springfield. Nice atmosphere. We were able to dress up feel like we fit in. Didn't have shorts, flip-flops and aT-shirt sitting next to us.

We went to Nick and Nino's to celebrate a wedding anniversary. We were lucky enough to be seated by the window and had a spectacular view of the city and the sunset. We tried the firecracker shrimp appetizer and the crab cakes. Both were phenomenal! I ordered the flight of filets for an entree, and I really liked how I... More

We had an amazing experience. Not one detail went unnoticed. I had the salmon which was absolutely wonderful! Not simply a dinner but an experience. This is truly a treasure to our city.

I had the pleasure of dining here last week with some very good clients. I wanted somewhere unique to treat them and show them how appreciated they are. From the moment we stepped off the elevator we were all treated like VIP's. The food & atmosphere were equally amazing!

My husband and I came here for date night. The service was great. Our side dishes were delicious. The only problem was that my steak was way overdone. It was a filet mignon and it came out butterflied and very dry.

Dear TLH - thank you for taking the time to offer your feedback. I'm gratified to here that we scored on all other counts, however - let's face it - you didn't come to Nick & Nino's for side dishes. If your steak didn't make you happy, then we failed in some way. Your review did not mention if we... More

One of the more expensive restaurants in Springfield. On the top of what was once the Hilton (and the tallest building in town), it isn't easily accessible. The food is excellent, the service is always stellar, but you'll pay for it dearly! Three of us with steak dinners and cocktails brought a ticket of over $300!

Hi Randy...thank you for another great review! As a sidenote...the hotel remains a Hilton until the end of the year. Then the best restaurant in Springfield will be located in the Wyndham Springfield - City Centre. Lost of nice improvements planned for the hotel and a few nice surprised planned for our 30th floor venues, so stay tuned! Thank you... More

I absolutely love going to Nick and Ninos. We had the weekend free and decided to do a date night with another couple and chose Nick and Ninos.
