  • "Every time they prove why they are the best place in town"

  • "My husband and I recently tried Nick and Nino's Penthouse Steakhouse. We were celebrating some good news. The atmosphere was very relaxing and the views were nice, the staff was very professional, but I felt as though they were trying too hard to create something that I just don't think works in Springfield,IL. The restaurant is not a 5 star restaurant. The food was in my opinion average. I could have made the same food at home and spent less money. We also ordered dessert to go and I found a hair in my dessert. I know life happens but if they are trying to convey 5 star class it should never have happened. I probably won't be back but I will definitely hit up the Pinnacle again, it's down the hall from Nick and Nino's"

  • "Booked the restaurant, after reading Open tables reviews, on our overnight stay in Springfield. This really is a one of a kind restaurant, with amazing views, especially at sunset. The service and food were very good, from start to finish. The decor is like glam 70's style with black leather, sparkly tables and a touch of pink. It was almost empty when we arrived and we got a window seat which was a bonus, it stayed pretty quiet and we missed a little more buzz and atmosphere, but the whole experience was great overall and the manager/ staff are so very attentive and efficient."

  • "My wife and I wanted to celebrate a special occasion and we were not disappointed. Denise warmly greeted us and escorted us to our table by the window. We both enjoyed a panoramic view of Springfield and a beautiful purple orange sunset. Mathew our waiter was the perfect combination of friendly and attentive but not intrusive. My wife ordered the sea bass and I ordered the steak trio. Both entrées were perfectly prepared and delicious. Kudos for the burgundy mushroom steak sauce. We topped off the evening with a delightful white chocolate cheesecake. While Nick and Nino's is an upscale fine dining experience, it is not pretentious. A perfect place to celebrate a special dinner with family, friends or business associates. We'll be back."

  • "The food was outstanding and the service was even better. The view was breath taking and the best I've seen at a restaurant"

  • "Another great meal, more great service.....Matthew is a terrific addition to the already superior waitstaff and it's always nice to have a visit to the table from the very personable Chef Steve. Denise continues to be a gem. Great new surprise: the Pinnacle Club next door features a terrific new pianist and vocalist on Friday and Saturday nights. Great place to have a before or after dinner drink."

  • "I took my girlfriend here for a spontaneous romantic dinner, and Nick and Nino's did not disappoint. We both had the Filet Mignon and it definitely was a melt-in-your mouth kind of meal. We ordered two sides (which serve 2, by the way): the chef's sauteed vegetables (ask your waiter exactly what that is; it may change), and a hashbrown brick (HUGE); both were great. Try an appetizer as well. We had these spicy sausage and chicken rice egg rolls that were a great way to kick off the meal. I would HIGHLY recommend getting there about 15 minutes before your reservation and having a few drinks in the Pinnacle Lounge, then going back for a nightcap after the meal is over. Dress lightly, too. It's warm up at the top floor of the hotel!"

  • "I made reservations at 7pm to celebrate my boyfriend's parents 26th wedding anniversary. We were promptly seated by Denise at a window table which is what I had requested when I made the reservation. Denise was very nice, and made small talk with us before our server came over. Matt was our server. He was very knowledgable of the food, and made recommendations of staff favorites and the most popular items. It was the first time for my party so we needed a little more time to decide what we wanted. Matt checked in periodically to make sure we were doing well, and took our orders when we were ready. The food was EXCELLLENT! Everything was hot, flavorful, and came out at a good pace. We were all stuffed when we left. Overall, great night!"

  • "My wife and I recently celebrated our anniversary at Nick & Nino's, and we had a terrific time. Everything was pretty much perfect, from the greeting at the front desk, to our seating at a window as requested, to our very informative waiter. The meal itself was as good or better than anything I've had in Spfld. Terrific salads, my ribeye was perfect and tasty while my wife's lamb was excellent as well. The chocolate cake was probably the weakest part of the meal, but even it was good. It had been a couple of years since we were last here; will try to get back a lot sooner next time."

  • "We went out to dinner here for our anniversary. The service and food were only fair sad to say. I had been to this same restaurant two years previous and it was much better. The best part of the evening was the dessert. I had requested a table by the window which I understand is difficult to accommodate due to the limited number of tables by the window, however we sat through our entire meal while a table by the window sat empty. I will not be dinning here again."

  • "This restaurant is rated #1 for Springfield on Trip Advisor and didn't disappoint. The aged steaks were great, and were offered with numerous crusts and sauces (which were optional). The vegetables were served family style, and our table ordered a few and shared them. The Nicks Potatoes were fantastic. We all ordered desserts, and we all enjoyed them very much. The service was top notch as well. Once they opened the shades on the windows, which were closed when we arrived at 6:30pm and opened when it was dark, it was a fantastic view. My only criticism is that they should have opened them sooner as the shades totally blocked the view most of the evening."

  • "One of my dining companions indicated the duck dish was the best he's every had, anywhere, and he pretty much hates everything, so you know it must be good! This was my fifth or sixth time dining and I have yet to be dissapointed....the root vegetable side special was excellent as was my filet. Desserts were shared and as decadent as expected. Service is the best in town."

  • "I have eaten at N & N twice. The food is excellent. I strongly recommend their lobster bisque. Both the steaks and lamb chop are very high quality and cooked to perfection. Side dishes are served family style and very large; each one serves 2-3 guests. The mushrooms (4 different varieties), asparagus and seasonal vegetables were our favorites. Try to save room for dessert. The front of house staff from the hostess Denise to your waiter and waiter's assistance do an excellent job. Friendly and casually elegant they keep you informed and refilled. Finding this quality of restaurant in Springfield is with a magnificent view is a pleasant surprise. "

The staff very professional and top rate! The food was incredible! This is a place to go to be treated well and made to feel important. I have never had one single complaint!! Go for a wonderful "top rate" dining experience. You will not be sorry!!! Great Job Nick and Nino's! Cheers!"

He was outstanding. The host was a doll. I believe her name was Suzy!?? I would not recommend the food. I was highly disappointed in it"
