    I absolute love the place from the moment I walked in.We were greeted with a smile made us feel welcome.Our server Ricky was the best he made sure we had the best service.It was me and my girlfriend anniversary and she absolutely love the place.I called to make reservations day before and ask if it was some way they could decorate our table for this special occasion and they did with rose pedals candles and roses it was beautiful. Our food was very good had a full course meal and the wine was excellent.We cant wait to come again and well tell all our friends this is an extraordinary place to come to thanks for an amazing time nick & sams.

    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.

    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...

    Dined on 5/11/2014
    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • Holiday Brunch Madhouse
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 4/20/2014
    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.

    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.

    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.
