    Nick and Sam's grill was never great but had decent options and quality, especially at brunch. The food quality has gone down, yet the prices have stayed the same or gone up. For example the Donut Hole starter is $9 but feels more at home around $5. The burger is $14, but is on par with national chains offering burgers around $8. The burger does not compare well with $11 - $15 burgers at competing moderate and/or upscale brunch places (CBD Provisions, Meddlesome Moth, Jasper's, Kitchen LTO, etc). Also, the wait staff turns frequently, most likely from a lack of income due to few customers. It was not busy on our last brunch visit, definitely a telling sign in Dallas where brunch is a big deal. I will not be going back.

    Noise level was moderate because I asked that it not have the music so loud. Food lost one star because Caesar salad was drowned in dressing after I ordered it with half the usual amount of dressing.

    Stopped in for a quick steak and bottle of wine on Friday. Not only did Chaz provide legendary service - he was hilarious as well. We almost felt like we should have paid a cover charge.

    The food was fine, but at noon on a weekday, this restaurant was not even half full despite its location around several office buildings. Our waiter was quite nice, but when he served my friends burgers, he should have said "by the way, that is not ketchup next to the fries, it is bbq sauce. Would you like ketchup or mustard or mayo?" Instead, he disappeared for over 10 minutes while my friends discovered that the red sauce was not ketchup. With a half-empty place, I have no idea why he was so busy. But that was nothing compared to the valet. We waited over 30 minutes for our car, despite the fact that there were only 2 people in front of us. The valet kept bringing ALL 3 of us the wrong car. Repeatedly. A joke waiting in the heat!

    I cannot say this enough.. why can't a kitchen cook a steak to proper temperature.. it's not that hard. I sent back my meat, but it then came back perfect. I mean outstanding. I forgot it was initially under-cooked. The asparagus was blanched and then not cooked off properly. The potatoes were ok -- not particularly well seasoned but good. The dessert was great -- let the pastry chef handle the line please! Now to be clear, the place was very good -- but for a table of 6 people, there the bill was nearly $600 -- I expect near perfection. The service was great -- actually better than most 3 star Michelin restaurants .. that said, you have to get it right -- all the time.

    Confusion about RW cost. They said it was $45 at Park CIties location, but all the media advertisement stated it was $35. Manager honored the advertised price and appreciated me informing him about it. Too bad other patrons were charged $45. Waitress raved about their filet, but my tenderloin and steak at Hibiscus and Capital Grille were better.

    This place is great. It offers a really broad menu. You can have a simple meal of their pizzas or sushi. Or, you can go for a really nice meal of great steak (Allen Brothers) or fish. The Parmesan crusted sole is sooo good. Love having this spot right in our neighborhood.

    Recommended by two different friends, so took another couple to dinner and we were disappointed. The service was attentive, but not very efficient. The appetizers were delivered with the salads making us feel rushed. Then the staff picked up all of our utensils and condiments while we still had appetizers on the table. When we studied the menu, we found most items to be reasonable, but the least expensive steak was $43. No one ordered it even though we all wanted steak. Wine selection was decent and again reasonably priced. Overall, would not return or recommend the restaurant.

    We came in for a quick mid week dinner as Hillstone had a 45 min wait. Nick & Sams was pretty empty and we got right in. Sushi was ok but will not order it again. We asked waitress to turn the loud music down several times. Disappointing.

    This outpost of Nick & Sam's is kind of a sad story. Great location, great ambiance, earnest service staff, but overall just a mediocre experience. The food doesn't have any zing or panache. We went to dinner on Saturday night and found the bar empty and the restaurant half full. Across the street, people were waiting an hour to eat at Hillstone.

    We brought the whole family for a Fathers' Day dinner (including children) and had a great experience. Our server, Ricky, was great with the kids and was so attentive. I wish the pizza oven would have been functional that day, but that couldn't be helped. Wine list was good and offered variety of price levels. Food was good with the fish and chips being the favorite dish at the table. Steak was also very good. The kids had macaroni and cheese, which was a big hit with them!

    We needed a place for a working lunch for one of our important Board committees. There are so many places that are too noisy for this type of meeting, but we were able to do what we needed and have everyone hear the discussions with no problem, so it worked perfectly. The food was great, the service excellent, and the welcome very warm. It also does accept lunch reservations, which a lot of places don't, so we didn't have to ask our group to wait.

    The Pizza oven was broken for past 2 months, the server was unenthusiastic, did not ever acknowledge my son's birthday (it was on the reservation) and for the most part was nowhere to be found. They have a new menu, so there were no specials as we were told the new menu was being emphasized and tried out. A 60.00 steak should not be a tryout! Overall we had been there before and will not be back. The evening was not up to Nick and Sam's usual quality.

    We normally love Nick and Sam's grill and we're excited to take my mom here for mother's day. We made our reservations a month in advance and called the day before to confirm our reservation. At no point were we told that there was going to be a buffet and that the regular menu wouldn't be offered. During the times I spoke to the restaurant it was never mentioned. When we walked in we noticed the buffet but were seated anyway. When the bill arrived, for our 8 adults it was over $500. Everyone ordered tea as well, no alcohol. The food was only mediocre, typical lukewarm buffet food. The waffles were amazing, but definitely not worth the price. They should have made an effort to make people aware of the buffet & price before arrival.
