Beautiful setting, outstanding service, many interesting & delicious options. Excellent seafood and beef. 4 of us shared a half portion of the cake for dessert. A very good wine list. Everything was perfectly prepared and presented beautifully.

What an amazing dinner. The service was impeccable. The food was amazing. The ambiance was perfect. I was told that this is where the Cowboys rookies have their intro dinner and I can see why. Such a great experience. I will definitely come back if I ever have a chance.

I have never been here before but went because of a good recommendation from friends. My reservations were for 7pm for a table of 10. My only complaint (remember this was a very busy day) was than from the time we sat and the time we ordered was about an hour. Which for us was inconvenience but other than that... More

We went to Nick and Sam's for dinner. The food, including the steaks, was just ok for a restaurant of this level. The dining room is nicely decorated.

Have been here more times than I can count and am always impressed. Complementary caviar in the bar, wonderful oysters, great steaks. Has the feel of the older steakhouses. Service has always been great. I love to come back when I am in town.

I've been twice to Nick & Sam's and both times I was seated in the same exact table! I have no idea how that can happen because there are over 100 seats. Anyway, this is a dining experience to die for if you love steakhouses. The artwork is beautiful. A piano player was playing while the kitchen cooks behind him.... More

Salads were above average, steaks no better than average, calamari below average. For the prices you are asked to pay at N&S, that's a pretty unattractive combination. And if you are seated in the middle of the room and want to talk to your dinner companions, you had best plan on yelling across the table all the way through your... More

I ate here at the recommendation of my hotel. Mostly I was not disappointed The steak was fab the other choices wide. The service was attentive but you got the feeling it was a machine not focussed on you. Compared to others it's expensive. Is it worth it - maybe. I'd bring my son who loves steak but not my...

My college and I went here on a business trip on a whim based on a recommendation from our hotel staff. Our server, Sean, was EXCELLENT and made for a memorable dining experience. The steaks and sides were amazing. They also have an incredible wine list, but I did find the prices to be about 20-30% higher than other places.... More
