Went here to celebrate an anniversary and we weren't disappointed. From the moment we entered the hostess was warm and friendly and greeted us like long lost relatives. Our waiter, Rick, was excellent. He gave us space when we needed it , didn't rush us, and was warm and friendly. The food was excellent, some of the best potato gnocchi... More

My husband took me here to try something different in Springfield. Food was just ok. Service was above average. Atmosphere was good, view was good. If you want to spend money on something different it will do but as far as food? Not so sure.

Highly recommended despite the cost! Host was very nice. Our server, not so much, he was rude towards my husband, didn't even introduce himself, had no insight when asked for a recommendation, etc. The food was the perfect portions and delicious. View at sunset was gorgeous. Despite the rude service I look forward to visiting again.

We ended up coming here , just looking for a place to eat. We really had no expectations. We were so pleasently surprised. First, the people were so nice and gracious. The hostess, as well as the server. Nice people. The view was great. 30 stories up, looking over the city. Just lovely. Finally, and most importantly, the food. It... More

Mu wife and I have been to Nick & Nino's Penthouse which is located on the top floor of the hotel overlooking Springfield, IL. The view is fantastic but: 1. They are demanding on reservations. It's hard to do "walk-ins". 2. The menu is very large. We tried the steak. It was not worth the money. 3. As state, the... More

My husband and I ate here for dinner, and it was an awesome dinner. We both had the steak trios and they were cooked exactly the way we wanted them. We also had an appetizer, two salads, and two sides. No complaints about any. With two cocktails, two glasses of wine, two coffees, one dessert price was $213.00 before tip.... More

Disappointing dinner. Beautiful view. Food below average. Filet butterflied (without asking). Asked for medium and came out dry and overdone. Sides were ok but little seasoning or flavor. Appetizers above average. Wine excellent. Weight staff initially attentive. When told steak overdone (as he had never asked how things were), offered nothing different. Doubt will ever try this restaurant again. Overrated.

I really like the steaks here as well as the delicious side dishes. Service is always top notch. Prices are a little high in my opinion and that is the only reason I didn't rate it a 5.

Thank C J S
