Once knowing I was traveling to Dallas I immediately knew Nick and Sam's was a must, being one of a handful of certified restaurants to serve authentic Kobe beef in the entire U.S. We didn't have reservations but found seats in the bar and the service was exceptional. Drinks and appetizers came out quickly and a server or one of... More

We have stayed in the hotel nearby so went to this place for a dinner of three. Our group didn't have a reservation, however we managed to get a table. If you go please make sure you are dressed up. I had fillet mignon and buffalo mozzarella for the starter. The salad came with baby mozzarella and our waiter tried... More

I am a regular in Nick & Sam's for over 7 years. I stumbled on this place on my move from San Diego. The sushi, and fish are as good as the steaks, and they are always changing the sides. The dessert cakes are awesome. Love the atmosphere!

Great food, service, atmosphere. It is always a Dallas favorite and for good reason. Rather dining casually at the bar, just me or big dinner with lots of friends, it is always outstanding.

I can honestly say nothing bad about the food, it was what you would expect from an expensive steakhouse. I was kind of surprised at how close together the tables are and how loud it is. Most of the other "top notch" steakhouses we've been to seem to have a more intimate atmosphere. I guess it is all in what... More

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.
