Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "To celebrate our daughter's last fine dining experience with us before heading off to college she chose Nick & Sam's - Park Cities since we had had good experiences there on prior visits. After waiting a very long time (it was not overly busy) our waiter asked us what we wanted without first checking to see if we wanted anything from the bar, or explaining if they had any off-the-menu items available. My daughter ordered a filet steak cooked medium temperature and it came out blood rare. She sent it back and it came back cut into two pieces and was still medium rare. She asked for a little more cook time and when it came back it was cut into 6 or 8 pieces and was so well done it was not at all edible! Haven't returned and likely won't."

  • "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!"

  • "The food was great, and the service attentive but not overbearing. We may have found the new "best steak in town" place to go. I also love their lunch menu, and totally appreciate a dinner menu offering different selections than lunch."

  • "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 food is good but very pricey for what you get. The decor is great looking!! We went on Saturday night and it was not busy. Maybe if the food wasn't so pricey they wound have been busy "

  • "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."

  • "I always love the food at NSG as well as the cheap mimosas. My order was messed up twice (omelette) but still great nonetheless. I always wonder why there aren't more people inside on a weekend at brunch time..."

  • "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."

  • "We had a big group celebrating several special occasions. Jaime and his team provided excellent service - they were awesome. the food was good but not great. The menu could use a little variety....I know Nick and Sam's can do better and offer more...food was good but the service is why I would go back."

  • "My son noticed that his chicken was very undercooked, but they did fix it quickly once we pointed it out. I would hope that in the future, the chef would examine everything that leaves the kitchen. Loved the ambiance, and I did like our server. "

  • "The meat in our cheeseburgers was lean, but had no taste. Very bland. I did not comment to our waitress, who had completely left our table in the middle of the meal. We were left unserved until an assistant manager finally came over to offer us our check for a very subpar meal."

  • "It was quite hectic for Easter. I love this place for brunch on most Sundays, but it was a little much for me for the Easter occasion with all of the kids activities going on. I will continue going here for Sunday brunch, but I would not recommend it for Easter unless you have small children. "

  • "We made 12:45 reservations at N&S Grill PC for Easter Sunday Brunch. Walked in about 12:30 to a madhouse scene and weren't seated until about 1:45. Lots of agitated customers as we were not the only ones with very delayed reservations. It appears they may have overestimated how many people they could serve and/or the table turnover was slower than they anticipated. The host staff seemed a little overwhelmed and it took quite awhile to clear and reset tables. Once we were seated, the experience was enjoyable - food was good and wait staff was very attentive. If you choose brunch on a holiday (Easter, Mothers Day, etc.) my advice it to go early or very late once the crowd has cleared."

  • "Wasn't that impressed with the quality of food. Sushi was fishy and the fish special seemed a bit pre made. I expected food to be more fresh for the prices. Staff was courteous. Atmosphere was nice."

  • "Our service was excellent and the venue was crisp, clean, and had a casual elegance. The coffee was delicious. Our party ordered two eggs benedict dishes, the captain crunch strawberry french toast, and the steak and eggs. All the plates were served beautifully , but the eggs benedict was not good. The "soft eggs" were served too soft.. Some of the egg white was actually runny and the hollandaise sauce too acidic and cold. I was disappointed. On a better note, the other dishes were delicious."

  • "Great food. I got the trout--was a great non-buttery but tasty fish dish. Forgot which salad I got. Key lime pie has coconut shavings on top. Don't really care for coconut so scraped it off, but pie was still great. My friend got some kind of chocolate lava cake. It was melty and looked like it collapsed. We love chocolate so still good. But we've had way better chocolate desserts. Waitstaff was outstanding. Bar scene on Thurs night was a lot of the after work crowd--people in ties and work clothes, one person had her suitcase so must've been traveling for work. We enjoyed our wines at the bar, but we had to wait there for at least 30 min, which was odd b/c I had a confirmed reservation and we arrived early. Overall great. Would go back."

  • "The food was fantastic but the service was nonexistent. We had to constantly pour our own wine, the person who delivered the appetizers dropped my spoon and said he would be right back with a new one but never returned, etc. Our waiter came around very infrequently and there were plenty of waiters standing around so it was not like he was even busy, much less overwhelmed. It was poor service for any restaurant but certainly for one associated with Nick & Sam's and who holds themselves out as an upscale place to dine. We were dining early so there was no excuse for poor service as there were few customers needing assistance. I would highly recommend the food but the lack of service ruined what could have been a wonderful experience."

  • "We have been here twice, both on weekend nights and now Tues. The food was better on weekend nts. At $43 for a steak, and our previous experience we were expecting it to taste more like last time. We asked for medium but it was cooked medium well. The shrimp sushi roll was pretty good but again, tasted better the first two times. Not sure what the difference is, maybe the chefs working on those two nights are different. Also, we were told we could substitute mac n cheese for our mashed potatoes, but they charged another $3 for that. Just wish they had said that before. Either way, we will be back as it is a great restaurant and we love the bar and seating area next to the bar. It has a nice ambiance and most things we have tried were good."

  • "The evening started out just fine. Bartenders were on top of it and very friendly. Having a casual night out. My guest and I both ordered cheeseburgers and both came out severely undercooked. We sent them back and when that arrived the second time, the temperature was closer, but the ordered toppings were missing. The waiter also was really slow. 3 hours for a casual dining night is pretty poorly executed"

  • "This was our first vioait and it will be the last. Average food for far above average prices and clumsy service (fblank stare from our waiter when he arrived with our entrees without ever brought appetizers we ordered)."
