We had dinner in the bar and ordered enough food for more than just the 5 of us. Good doggie bags. They arrive with a plate of American caviar and the accompaniments to share when you fist sit down. Nice touch. The amazing wine list has something for everyone, for sure you will find your favorite.
We had a good waitress that spent a lot of time changing plates for us to share all the things we ordered to start. Loved the shredded onion rings, Mac and cheese and veggies. The special was a tuna tartar and felt it was way to much for an appetizer. The flavor was a little flat but the quality of the tuna was very good.
I had a chop salad and felt it fell short on flavor, almost mushy with how fine it was chopped. Couple of the group shared a steak and gave it an A+, guess that is why you go here.
Love the room and would go back just order differently.

Dined with 6 colleagues and had a good experience. I had mistakenly reserved the table at Nick & Sam's Grill but they accommodated us with no hassle or attitude. We also had people join us late and again, extra settings were quickly provided and the table adjustments made. Steaks were among the best I've had. Cooked to the right temperature, and delicious. The sides were OK. I've had better lobster mac & cheese, but the hash browns rocked. Would definitely recommend over the standard chain steakhouses if in the Dallas area. While others are good, You can eat at a Morton's or DelFrisco's anywhere. Try N&S for a great local experience.

Have been to the new location twice this month. Food was excellent, bar crazy busy, waiters working so hard to keep up. Could use more bartenders as we never got our after dinner drinks. Management very accommodating. Good use of spave.

We came in here for brunch on our way out of town for a girls weekend and WOW! It was probably the highlight of the weekend. It was incredibly packed but a great atmosphere. Amazing brunch and CHEAP mimosas! Loved the blood mimosas as well. DEFINITELY stop in here if you haven't before.

Saturday night my wife and I were able to secure a reservation here. We like to eat late so the time was not an issue for us but we were a bit worried that by the time we were served dinner, the place might be emptying out. Our worries were for not. The buzz in the restaurant was still very energetic by the time we wrapped up our dinner sometime after midnight. We had d drink in the lounge while we waited for our table and after refusing a couple of tables in the back corner of the back room we were finally seated in a prime location in the main dining area.
The dinner was everything we expected from a Dallas steakhouse. The portions were much larger than I could ever imagine eating (including the desert). The longhorn ribeye was very good but the rest of the food, from the crab cocktail to the sautéed spinach were good but not great. Lobster mac & cheese was phenomenal. Service was very attentive and they do a good job in such a large place of making you feel that you are being treated special.
What really sets this place apart from many other steakhouses is the clientele. All dressed to impress and all seemingly having a great time. Even if you are not interested in huge portions and good cocktails, I recommend you try this place out just for the ambiance and service.
