The food is amazing, service is amazing!!! My son had his rehearsal dinner here for 28 people. We had dinner in the private dinner room and it was so memorable. We must have had 5 staff members catering to our every need. Nearly four years later and we're still talking about it! It's a splurge but if you can swing... More

We have been to michelin star restaurants all over the world and Nick and Sam's is in that class in every way. Service never misses a beat but it so unobtrusive you do not even realize how well you are being taken care of. Service is every bit a part of the experience but it is meant to not be... More

Enjoyed steak houses all of the world like Peter Lugers in New York and visits to Argentina so compared to these Nick and Sams gets a minus 10. It is like eating on the street in the middle of Times Square. It lacks the atmosphere and sophistication for the prices. The bone in filet I had had grizzle thought out... More

Went here with a large group for a dinner. We had private room which was beautiful. The wine flowed which was good and the steak was really amazing. They also brought us cotton candy towers that were lit up blinking. It was actually very beautiful. Great experience.

We had a great meal here . Our waiter was very polite and explained a lot of the entrees on the menu and suggested a few that we tried and loved. The food was well prepared and very good but the service was excellent! Gets very business would recommend going early or making reservations.

My wife and I took our college aged daughter to the restaurant Saturday for dinner. Restaurant was very busy and cramped. My chair was kicked constantly by passers by, including wait staff. Restaurant was very loud. Ultimately, service was poor. Our food was slow to arrive and had clearly been sitting for a while. Only reason it showed up when... More

Kim Crawford Sav. Blanc $100. Yikes and similar markups on the wine list. Most meat either not cooked as ordered, one order in our group of 10 was the wrong steak. My rib eye center cut was just ok in flavor but tough. I only ate half. The prices are overwhelming, they just seem to love the idea of over... More

Setting: Good. Decor: Well-appointed; tables close in spots. Noise: At first seating next to a high-school homecoming group, it was disturbing. Luckily, the restaurant accommodated a move to another table. Service: Very good food service; errant on the wine service. Recommended an excellent wine, D66 from Maury in Roussillon, imported by Orin Swift Cellars. At $108, a very good price... More

What kind of steak restaurant can't properly cook the steak? 2/3 of our table had steaks that were not cooked as requested. The wine list is generally a 500% markup over retail. Anything over 300% is robbery and unacceptable to me. I was there for business, so it was my firm that paid, but I won't be back as I... More
