  • "This is my husband's favorite restaurant, so it is only natural we'd go there for his birthday. My only complaint is we were not offered a Restaurant Week menu when we sat down, and our waiter came and went a couple of times w/o mentioning it. We finally asked, and he brought the menu. We did order from RW menu, and it was fabulous. Thanks!"

  • "Tried out Nick & Sam's since it was Restaurant Week in Dallas. Even with reservations, waited a half-hour to be seated. Luckily, we were seated in the back room of the restaurant which was less crowded and noisy -- the place is very popular and high-energy in the main dining area. There was good choices on the restaurant week menu and the portions were hearty -- definitely felt stuffed after the 3 course meal! However, my husband ordered the chocolate torte with peanut butter shavings and was given a yellow/white cake so not sure if it was the correct dessert. Overall, great time due to exceptional waiter!"

  • "First time at Nick & Sam's-looking forward to many more! We frequent Eddie V's, Al Bernait's, Del Frisco's & Bob's and those are all great in different ways but Nick & Sam's is our new FAV!. The service (Jamie was amazing!) was top notch from the moment we arrived. The drinks were fabulous and the food was served piping hot and with flawless transitions from appetizers to dinner to dessert. You will not be disappointed!"

  • "Restaurant week menu was fantastic! The desert was dry and obviously prepared well in advance for the occasion but the over meal and experience was great. I'll definitely be going back to check out the full menu."

  • "One of my favorite restaurants in Dallas. Came here to celebrate my birthday. Hostesses knew I was celebrating, and even my server said "happy birthday". Was a little bummed that all the other tables around me got 'birthday sparklers' on their desserts and I did not :-( But food was fantastic!"

  • "We had a few appetizers loved them all. The restaurant week menu was great and wine pairing interesting. Skyler, out waitstaff was very sweet and patient with us waiting for our choices (we wanted everything on the menu). We plan to go back for the dishes we missed this go around"

  • "I set a reservation for Nick & Sam's for my wife and I to celebrate our 2nd anniversary. In the special instructions section of the online reservation, I just mentioned that we would be celebrating our anniversary, but didn't really think it would mean anything. When we arrived to our table, there was a beautiful card with our names on it, surrounded by rose petals. They brought out champagne to toast us, and offered an additional course free of charge. We are usually pretty systemic about the way we tip, but we gave the largest tip we've ever given to our waiter because his service was absolutely first class. And somehow, I haven't gotten to the fact that it was the best steak that my wife and I have ever had. I hope to go again...soon!"

  • "The atmosphere was welcoming, the staff amazingly attentive and knowledgeable, and the food was perfection! Out steak was expertly seared and yet remained our desired medium rare on the inside. Every appetizer, side, and dessert was equally delicious. We have tried many of the top steak houses in Dallas, but Nick & Sam's far exceeded our expectations!"

  • "You can't go wrong dinning at this restaurant. The food is plentiful (most side dishes serve at least 2) and the service is outstanding. Joel was our waiter and he did a fantastic job of explaining all the on menu and off menu dishes. Even made some recommendations for my wife who wasn't that hungry. Dessert was amazing - cream brulee; light, yet very tasty."

  • "We came because Nick and Sam's was voted D Magazine's best Steak House 2014. We will be coming back because Larry L, our server outshone the food, as difficult as this would be to accomplish. The steak presentation and explanations by Larry were impeccable as we narrowed our selection to a 120 day dry aged porterhouse paired with an excellent bottle of Stag's Leap Artemis. Throughout the meal, Larry was helpful, unobtrusive and always had a ready answer to any menu question we asked. The steak temperature was perfect, the presentation spot on and we left full, but not uncomfortably so. Larry was extremely helpful but completely without arrogance, allowing for a perfect meal."

  • "We told them it was our anniversary. They greeted us at the door saying "happy anniversary", they put rose petals on our table, they gave us a card saying happy anniversary, they gave us sparkling apple cider and complimentary appetizer. They catered to it being our anniversary. Amazing experience. We felt very special."

Food portions were large. Steak cooked to perfection and crab cakes were wonderful. Plenty of desserts to choose from for a perfect ending to a great meal."

  • "It was a great food experience, everything lived up to reputation in Dallas.In comparison to other famous steakhouses, it would be up with the best, however the dining room experience was cramped and at times awkward with several larger parties VERY close by and loud and rowdy patrons close it was difficult to hear others conversations at our table...not a great business or romantic dinner place. Could be great on a slower night??"
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "First and foremost, the service was exceptional because the way staff was attentive and persistent. Too bad the food didn't stand up to expectations. The crab cakes were made with the perfect combination of meat and filling but lacked salt. The Chateaubriand was not worth $150 as it also lacked flavor but had the right tenderness. The veal chop was a great cut but definitely not the best I've had in DFW. As for the sides, the garlic mashed potatoes had a subtle hint of garlic, the Mac and cheese wasn't gooey but delicious nonetheless, and asparagus wasn't seasoned. For the finale, the caramel cobbler cheesecake wasn't that great as the apples were still firm."

They put birthday confetti on the table for us and a birthday card from them. The food was incredible, having the salmon and 16oz ribeye as well as au gratin potatoes and asparagus. The manager came and introduced himself and gave us a champagne toast for the birthday. Complementary caviar was served as an appetizer. Staff was fiendly and very knowledgeable about everything. If your looking for to notch service great ambiance and excellent food this should be top on your list in the dallas area."
