“Better Options Available”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

Was in town on business and asked for a recommendation for dinner. More than one person suggested this steakhouse. The décor is impressive and a grand piano serenades you while you eat. The service started out attentive but drifted away after placing our orders. We noticed that tables ordering top shelf items continued to get great service. Before taking your order, they bring over a cart displaying superb cuts of meat for two with price tags to match. If you're not in the mood to drop a c-note or more on one of those steaks, you can order off their regular menu. I ordered the filet mignon off the menu and was disappointed in the flavor and texture. For the price, I was expecting much better.

“A must visit”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

Fabulous ambiance. Ask for a booth by grand piano. Food was exceptional. Service started out great but as soon as entre came, service was awful.

“Best Service in Dallas”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

We came with a party of 8 people this past Sunday and had a phenomenal experience. It was my Father in law's birthday and the staff at Nick & Sam's took extra care to make it special for him! From the champagne toast to the cake at the end, everything was top notch! The steaks and sides were cooked to perfection and even the two toddlers at our table enjoyed their food! I ordered the prime aged 12 oz ribeye and it came out perfectly medium rare. My husband had the bone in filet and couldn't say enough about how delicious it was. Others ordered red fish and salmon and loved their food as well. I believe the Lobster Mac & Cheese was the best I've ever tasted!

“Best Steakhouse in Dallas”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

As a concierge, I indulge in the most talked about restauraunts to find out the truth of the all the hype. Nick and Sams is my personal favorite steakhouse in Dallas, Texas. Exceeding expectations is an understatement. The ambiance is clean and professional, service is on point, and the food is above and beyond. Nora Sheilds knows how to take care of her clients and her restaurant. Kudos to the enitre staff for providing my girlfriend and I a night to remember! We will be back.
