    Met up with a friend here to enjoy some light fare and indulge on wine. The restaurant didn't disappoint. I'm so glad I don't have to travel to uptown to enjoy everything Nick & Sam's has to offer. If it hadn't been so hot, we would have enjoyed the great patio.

    I made an online reservation last night, but I've done that before with other restaurants, only to find that no one actually looked at the online reservations and I had to wait an hour for a table. This is the first time I've tried this since that fiasco. It was fabulous. Not only did I have a table, but the staff was so gracious and allowed me to have a booth by the window after a bit of maneuvering. The food is fabulous and there's something for everyone. Our waitress recommended the crab cake - I'm in love (with the crab cakes, not the waitress - but she was wonderful!). The wine list is extensive and I highly recommend the Mount Veeder Cab! Lovely experience - I can't wait to go back!

    Selected 9:30 pm reservation for 2 after going to a 7 pm movie a few miles away (9:15 & 9:45 also available.) Hostess surprised to see us, and waiter disappointed to get a new party. 5 minutes after waiter brought drink order from the bar & took dinner order, he returned at 9:45 to inform us "last call." Two bites into our food, full flood lights all came up at 10 pm sharp & cleaning crew began. Check delivered a few minutes after asking how our food was, with no inquiry about dessert. Asked to speak to manager who simply responded "yes, we are closing now." The N Dallas location only has the N & S prices... not the quality service & well prepared food you can experience at the N & S located in uptown. :(

    Menu is very limited and overpriced. We ordered a sushi roll and the grown up grilled cheese. The sushi was good but at $20 a roll its not worth the price. The sandwich was good, but it's hard to screw up a grilled cheese sandwich. Service was good.

    There are way too many choices in the area to choose this place. We had 4 people in our party, 2 ordered the Filet, and both were overcooked, and both felt ill after eating there. The caesar salads were bathed in dressing. One member of our party did like his Panko Crusted yellow sole, but s said the crab fried rice left a lot to be desired. I had the Grilled Ruby Red Trout, and it was a little too charred. It is such a thin filet, that it doesn't take much to over do it. We would have been better off across the street at Houstons.

    Just had another lunch at N&S's. Not a fan of the turkey club sandwich. While the ingredients were fresh and I love a good sourdough, it was a bit on the greasy side. The fries are salty, but I like mine like that. My friend had a turkey salad which looked good. It was quite a large portion with romaine lettuce and had blue cheese crumbles on it. She couldn't finish all of it and was quite full. I think maybe next time I'll get that instead of the sandwich. The burgers and sushi here are great. Brandon made sure we had everything we needed. I have never had less than excellent service here.

    This restaurant is connected to an upscale movie theater. Very casual, small menu. We had trout, which was cold and poorly seasoned, and a hamburger which was nothing special. Two drinks and two entrees became a $60 tab - pretty pricey for a pre or post movie bite. There is a sushi bar, but we don't consume sushi so we did not try it. Waitstaff was friendly but not polished.

    I went on recommendations that this was a hot spot, was very average at best, service was good but felt server just kept wantin to pick up my plate that i was still eating, took my salad plate that still had salad on it. Brouht me a new drink and took the one I was finishing with still 1/4 left in it. Food was good but not amazing. Probably would go again, but for a special occasion as this was, it was OK

    We have been dining at North Dallas Nick & Sam's Grill at least once a week for the past couple of months. It has become our favorite date night spot. The staff is exceptionally friendly, the food delicious (husband thinks the sushi is best in area, I love fish dishes and salads), and the service is great.

    I had always heard good things about original location so I was anticipating a great experience. But, I was very disappointed. Our waiter was overbearing and awkward. He went overboard describing dishes. It was amusing at first but became increasingly annoying as he hovered around the table, cleared plates while some were still eating. The worst was when we asked for some sliced lemons he brought them to the table on a paper napkin! He did this twice!! Awkward and annoying! Most enjoyed their food, but my steak was awful . I ordered medium well and it came medium and was chewy and tough. They did bring complimentary dessert for two birthdays being celebrated and they were very good.

    Although we had not been to Nick & Sam's in a few years and only to the original location, we were looking forward to a special occasion dinner. The menu has evolved completely and it was definitely not what we expected. This location, and perhaps the original location as well, is much more casual with a very limited menu. The food was ok but definitely not memorable. It would probably be a good place to grab a light dinner or late night bite after a movie.

    Very disappointed in the food. Got calamari as appetizer and it was over fried. My husband got the steak frittes and steak was burnt and not good. I got smoked pork chop and that good, however jalapeno Mac & cheese was not the best. I would not recommend this place for as date night.

    My friend and I visited Nick and Sam's on a Thursday night. We were delighted to find out it was "$5 Sangria" night and sampled two different flavors. We each had the potato soup (delicious) and share the trout entree with saffron risotto. Our server, Laura was knowledgeable and extremely helpful. We will definitely return!

    Had dinner with a business colleague visiting Dallas and didn't want to drive all the way downtown to the real Nick & Sams. This "grill" location is nice looking and staff were friendly enough. But the severely limited menu and wine by the glass choices were unimpressive. Calamari to start was the high light followed too quickly by a wedge salad that did not inspire. 1/2 way through the salad the hanger steak arrived. Steak quality was not good but was cooked med rare as requested. The fries portion was good but I am not a fan of battered fries. Our waitress was robotic and as sincere as a lump of coal. The best cab by the glass was $14 Buehler which costs $28 a bottle retail. Come on guys really!

    I ordered the sirloin burger medium well, it came out pink and so greasy I had to use my napkin to mope it up. Calamari tasted like fried fish fry with no meat. Wife ordered turkey club. Bread so hard she had to use her knife and fork to chop pieces. Ordered a sandwich, burger, calamari, one beer a piece and it was $75 plus tip. I have paid in excess of $100 a plate for food, and if it is good I have no problem paying it. But to pay $75 for a meal, and whataburger would have been better... No beuno!

    I had the asian salad with chicken. The chicken was dry and chewy; way overdone. Our waiter was not rude, but he was not friendly. He seemed to be just going through the motions. We ordered tea to start and waited a long time, then finally flagged down another waiter, who promptly brought our tea. Usually the service and food are much better. Not sure how soon I will go back.

    We had wonderful service but unfortunately the over salted food killed our experience. Both my husband and I ordered the filet. My steak wasn't as salted as my husbands but it was still overpowering. I had to dip my steak in my mashed potatoes so the creaminess of the potatoes took some of the salt away. My husband's steak was so salted he had to cut the outside off in order to enjoy it. Even the asparagus was covered in sea salt. On a positive note, the steaks were cooked to order. I also ordered a side of mac and cheese which was really watery and not creamy at all. Overall, I have had worse but expected much better.

    Nothing terrible, but nothing like I expected by going to a place as reputable as Nick and Sams. Our server was terrible, my girlfriend and I waited over 15 minutes for a glass of water and had to get some help from 2 other servers that were not ours. Out of 5 of us, 2 of us had simple modifications (no tomato, side salad, etc) and all of them were ignored. Mid rare burger came out well done, and it wasn't noticed that I only took 2 bites. Had to flag down the manager to have somebody clear our table, I would say empty plates sat on table for 10 minutes as countless people walked by. Steps of service were missed the whole time, we were constantly waiting or looking around for help. Plenty of staff there, just none that cared. Wont be back.
