    The food is a bit better than N&S but the service was beyond terrible. Expensive for what you get, overpriced wine list, etc. Really was hoping for something better than N&S under a new name. Guess running a decent restaurant is harder than it looks. The green beans were really good. So at least they got that going for them, which is nice....

    Food was really mediocre. Chicken tortilla soup had hardly anything in it but a thick based and a few morsels of chicken. Salad was drenched in too much dressing that took away from its ingredients.

    Food good, service average possibly new server. Should have more reasonably priced bottles of Chardonnay for a place like this.

    This is our second visit to the newly re-opened Ivy Kitchen (formerly Nick and Sam's Grill), and it was wonderful! The food was great with lots of favorites and rotating nightly specials, the wine list interesting and nicely priced, and the service fantastic. We will return soon and Ivy Grill will likely become our go-to date night spot.

    This is a great addition to the Addison area. So glad to see them add this to the LOOK and DINE option. Such an improvement over Nick and Sam's. I've been four times now and the food has been consistently good. Yay!

    This restaurant connects to the movie theater. Our party was two 30 somethings and two 60 somethings. Noise made it hard to hear each other. Even the wait staff was too busy running around we had to yell several times to tell them something before they ran away to their next table. The food was great. Good american grill flavors and they also had sushi. But even though we told them to bring one person's sushi meal with all the other entrees, and they wrote it down, they still brought it much earlier than everyone else's food. So overall, good food, but the other things make it kind of so-so experience.

    Decided to dine at Ivy Kitchen after finding out that they took over Nick & Sam's Grill space (our first choice). Their website was pretty impressive and while it was not N&S, we figured we'd try something new. The ambiance and the decor was pretty much left intact which was good with us as we loved the bar area and the trendy hip look to the place. Server was great and very attentive. Unfortunately, once I started looking at the menu, I just couldn't find that "must have" item. Their appetizers were pretty limited and lacked originality. Chose the pork chops with olive oil mashed potatoes. Chops were excellent...taters not so much. Imagine instant potatoes with olive oil poured over them. Might go back to the bar for drinks and sushi.

    Replacing he old Nick & Sams Grill, Ivy Kitchen did a slight remodel that looks better.. Notably opening the wall between the bar and sushi bar bringing more light into the dining room...food was good and service a little over attentive as new restaurant tend to do for the first few weeks. My wife had a very good crab cake and spicy tuna roll, I had a steak that had great flavor but was served cold. Homemade steak sauce was very good. The menu is almost identical to the old restaurant, but prices have gone up slightly. They still do 1/2 price bottles of wine on Wednesday night which is nice. Overall we had very good dinner and will defiantly return.

    It was still Nick and Sam's Grill when we dined. Two days later it was Ivy Kitchen. Asked for cocktail on 3 rocks and came with glass filled with rocks and very little scotch. Waitperson could not answer questions about the menu. Food was ok. May or may not try Ivy Kitchen.
