When you walk into this steakhouse I immediately thought about a place where the rat pack would go to hang out. Waiters in uniforms, hostesses in tight little black dresses. Dark atmosphere. The food was excellent, seasoned very well, and cooked to perfection. If you are wanting to impress someone or just want a really good dinner. Try this place.

Wow! Wow! My wife and I celebrated our anniversary there this last Monday night. If we could give a 6 as a rating we would! Atmosphere is jazzy with a good noise buzz all around. The service was quick and happy with a great presentation of the available steaks and chops. Our steak was cooked to perfection, the salad was... More

Recommended by our hotel Le Meridien because it was close and they said we would enjoy it. Place is loud and you cannot have any conversation. The menu is complex and when the server explains it - difficult to understand if you have possible hearing issues and I was with a 67 year old who could only hear every 3rd... More

My husband stopped eating Beef about 3 years ago. After my daughter and son-in-law told us about Nick & Sam's, we decided to take my son before he left to go out of town. My husband ordered fish. My son and I, each, ordered a steak. OMG!!! My ribeye was sooooo juicy and flavorful that I couldn't stop talking about... More

The food was great! If you want to talk to your friends during dinner, you might want to pick a different restaurant. Service was so-so, waitresses are scantily clad in black dresses which is unnecessary. Menus light up which is different however, it's so dark that you need them to light up to read the menu.

From the moment we walked in the service was spectacular. The food and ambiance were great too. My husband has s shell fish allergy and our server went above and beyond to inform him of his menu choices. The food was great and ambiance was great too.

I planned a surprise Father's Day dinner for my husband at this restaurant. We live in Phoenix and we were flying in to eat at this restaurant. On June 22, it just happened to be the hottest record break heat we've had in Phoenix in a while. Our flight was delayed 5 hours. I told the receptionist every time I... More

The dining rooms are beautiful and the bar is full of beautiful people. Steaks are fabulous and the sides offer equal support, however, the key here is the service. We have always felt as if we were in a 5 star restaurant in NYC each time we dine at Nick & Sam's. There is never a rush or an error.... More

Had dinner here with a party of twenty! Plenty of top notch beef and seafood options. Entrees around me were filet mignonette, rib eyes, and I dined on the catch of the day Chilean Sea Bass! Everyone was pleased with their meals, sides are rather large so sharing is recommended. Service is top notch and the place was packed! If... More

We went for dinner on a Friday night. I ordered what I should order at Nick & Sam's a filet. I ordered it medium rare and it came out medium. The steak was tough and just OK...I've had better. The sides were very good, the service was excellent and the atmosphere was fun. Overall it was a 3.5 star experience.
