    I'm from New York, took a group of clients here while visiting Dallas and I would definitely go back. One of the best steakhouses I've ever been to. Even things as simple as the shrimp cocktail was amazing. Food was all tasty but not too rich that you couldn't enjoy it all.

    My wife and I were celebrating another milestone anniversary, and we decided to go back to Nick & Sam's for this one, since we had such a good experience at the restaurant on our last milestone. They did not disappoint! We were very pleased with our server, Aaron (Semper Fi and thanks for your service)! He was patient and informative. The food was incredible! The restaurant management team even treated us to an anniversary dessert. We highly recommend this restaurant to everyone!

    This is where all the pretty people go to have drinks, steak and to be seen. It was loud and the perfume and cologne hit you hard as you walk through the door. The bar and waiting area were full of people and the music was loud. Definitely a place people doll themselves up for. The drinks were good and reasonably priced. We had reservations and still waited for about 20 minutes. Our waiter was great. He was friendly, knowledgable and helpful. There wasn't a lot of flare to the steaks, but the meat was wonderful so salt, pepper and some butter was all they needed. Nice work on the steaks. The selection of cuts was impressive. The sides - au gratin potatoes, mac and cheese and duck fat hash browns weren't the most flavorful. Go for the steaks

    Definitely worth a visit. Decent food. A little loud for the price point but the food is good. I was there on a very busy night and server seemed rushed. Given the price point, they should of had more servers on the floor. Otherwise a nice experience

    This was our first time to Nick & Sam's. The food was exceptional. We happened to be seated in a room with a party of about 40 people for a "Chefs Table" or something so it was very loud. We couldn't really talk very well. Would definitely suggest seating smaller parties around such a large group as a last resort. We were there for my husband's bday and the food was very good. Just the noise level was the problem.

    Went to Nick & Sam's on 10/25/14, so that my wife and I could celebrate our 12 year wedding anniversary. The ambiance was real nice and the art work was very ecclectic. Our waiter was outstanding with his demeanor and his knowledge of the menu. He was very engergetic and helped maked our night a little bit more celebratory. I'm not a wine consumer; therefore, I have no comment about the wine. Overall, this place was nice and the food was ok. Honestly, it would not be a restaurant that I highly recommend to others.

    This place has excellent food and atmosphere, great crowd. The bar scene has enough people to make it fun, without it being a PITA to get served. The quality and price of the food is great, but don't fall for the upsells. They have the BEST pork chops in town! The waitstaff is incredibly accommodating (rare for such packed restaurant) and they know their product.

    We had a terrific birthday dinner for my husband at Nick and Sams. It was a weeknight and the place was hopping! I had wriitten in my open table reservation comments that it was my hubbies birthday and it seemed everyone on staff wished him a happy birthday that night. Our food was delightful and we always order a larger meat portion so we can take home some leftovers! We love Nick and Sams!

    Very good, had the chateaubriand. The house was very accommodating to our tastes and requests. We had a lobster beignet special that was good, even to my wife who's a New Brunswick girl (hard to please as far as lobster goes). I personally haven't had a steak like that in a long time. They have very good beef there. The char is excellent and the taste is rich and tender - exactly what its supposed to be. So, thank you, we went there for a real restaurant experience and you delivered.

    This was our first visit, and the experience exceeded even Three Forks and The Mansion. Amazing, perfectly timed service. Best steak I've ever had. Bottle of decent wine, sushi starter, chopped salad, comped caviar taster, rib eyes, grilled asparagus, chocolate souffle and coffee service $200. I gotta say a value for the experience. And a grand piano playing in the open restaurant / service pit!

    One of my favorite spots anywhere. A great mix of food, service and atmosphere - Nick and Sam's never disappoints. They have some of the best beef in town, regularly supplemented by specials. I sometimes like to start my meal with dessert. The only challenge is to decide whether something sweet or the complimentary caviar is a better first step to what is usually a culinary treat. The service is both attentive and unobtrusive. The staff know their stuff and are able to make some recommendations for different palates. If you feel like listening to your favorite hip hop while you dine, the bar scene offers a quintessential Dallas experience. The staff will make you feel like an old friend when you show up.

    Reservations
    Dined on 10/11/2014
    Let me start by saying I still consider Nick and Sam's to be the best dining experience in Dallas. The waiters are attentive, you won't find better beef anywhere else in the world (maybe Japan, but then again, this place carries Omi beef, so you might want to save the trip). However, they need to understand what a reservation is. If I make a reservation for 8:30, it's because I expect to be seated at that time, or at least rather close to it. That's what a reservation is: the prior confirmation of your commitment to the establishment as your option for dining that evening. The fact that we were seated 30 minutes after the reservation time (and we arrived 2 minutes prior) is unacceptable for a restaurant like this.

    For how expensive it is the ambiance, service and food does meet expectations of other comparable fine dining experiences I have had. It is so dark in the restaurant that everyone was having to use their flashlight app to see the menu, food etc. I think the owners need to get involved again.

    One of the best high-end restaurants in Dallas. I would highly recommend going if you crave beef or seafood and don't mind spending more for quality. We went for my wife's birthday, so when the waiter found out about this, he came back with a hand written card signed by the staff. A very classy touch. The only knock I can give is our server forgot to bring our leftovers after we paid our tab an were ready to leave. We actually had to wait for the manager to find our leftovers and bring them to us because the waiter did not return after we paid. Other than that, an excellent experience.

    While we had great service, the kitchen just could not get our steaks right. The manager ended up picking up the tab for our table of 5 and bringing over extra food but we never got a good, cooked-to-order steak. Also, even though I made a reservation 2 weeks in advance we were stuck in a corner of a small room. The bar area is kinda cool. Wouldn't go back.

    Have you ever had a steak cooked with a crust? One that melts in your mouth, but has that wicked crust on it from a great sear? No? Head to Nick and Sam's Steakhouse and you'll get to experience what I'm talking about. One of a small few restaurants where I've experienced such greatness in my lifetime. Don't forget to get your steak Oscar style! Loaded with a generous mound of delectable crab chunks and smothered in a smooth, creamy Bearnaise sauce. The sides were equally tasty. The service was second to none. The ambiance was as good as one could hope for. Want to take your loved one to dinner for a night to remember, guaranteed to not disappoint? Head to Nick and Sam's.

    We loved the service, the food was incredible. We thought it was an amazing experience. If we had one problem, I would say the portions on the sides are way too small. The steaks were not very large either. The taste was by far the best we have ever had, so that is all I can say.

    We got the filet Mignon and it was just OK. Nothing to rave about. It wasn't very flavorful. The brussel sprouts were actually really good. Although the service and good was OK, we wouldn't go back. Not to mention the place is VERY loud. We went on a Saturday night. I wouldn't recommend this as a romantic place.
