There were 3 very large parties seated behind us - they were very noisy talking to people at the end of the table. We were unable to visit because of the noise level. The food was mediocre at best. One party's plate was barely warm, soups were lukewarm. Salads were fine. Since large parties were seated at same time we were I think a smaller party should be waited on first. We had an event to go to and had to ask about our order 3 times. I don't blame the waitress...it wasn't her fault. Big parties had their food first.

We we're ignored for 10 minutes after we sat down and then in the course of the next few minutes we had three different waiters introduce themselves as our waiter. Service was good after that. My wife ordered a filet mignon medium. It came out looking burnt, I am not sure how anyone let that come out of the kitchen. My wife tried to eat it but the main taste was charcoal. She finally couldn't stand it and sent it back. They were very good about replacing it and comped us a free desert.

It was our first time to Nick and Jake's during restaurant week. We had never been and this was the perfect time to try it. My husband loved his dinner but I was a little disappointed with mine. However, that being said I saw a lot of food coming from the kitchen that I would like to try. We are definitely going back. The service there was outstanding.

Great experience! We went to Nick & Jake's during Restaurant Week but we were not shuttled through in a rush. We really enjoyed our server and the service he provided even during a very busy Friday night! It was extremely loud that evening, but that just added to the experience - we tried not to let that dampen our experience!!

The bourbon glazed salmon was better the first time I had it, this second time it was not as good as I remember. My friend had the short rib pot roast with gravy which she said was very good. The steak soup is not traditional steak soup with tasty chunks of steak, rather it looks like ground meat. My waitress was very informative and pleasant. Overall a good experience and great value for KC restaurant week!

So I booked an 8:00 reservation for Christmas Eve. Not sure why they offered an 8:00 reservation when they closed at 9:00. Felt very rushed on a night when we wanted to have a relaxed dinner!

The food was decent and the prices appropriate but we got a bad waiter. No one came to the table for 15 mins after we sat down - I had to go ask the manager. Once the waiter did show up he apologized and blamed it on a misunderstanding. He even gave us a free dessert. However once he gave us the bill he ignored our table for another 10plus minutes (walked right by several times) until we got another waiter to take our payment. Obviously they need to train their waiters better.

Saturday night and the bar was understaffed and working slow. My hamburger was way over-cooked - beyond well done. Our server was good. Would have rated the overall service higher but the bar was amateur hour.

Sean was our waiter for the evening and did an outstanding job. He was personable yet professional. I highly recommend you sit in his section if possible. The food was excellent and prepared as requested by each member at our table (there was 6 of us).

Best steak soup in the nation! I could have eaten a vat full. We had a work team lunch here for our holiday gift exchange. Taylor was our wonderfully attentive server who dealt well with some zealous guests. One meal was undercooked and she and the manager made it right. Everything else was tasty, including the cocktails. Thank you to all the Nick and Jake's team for accommodating us. Good stuff.

We love Nick and Jakes, south and midtown. The champagne chicken is excellent.This isn’t bar food, it’s comfort food dressed up. We eat at the south location several times a month but the midtown location is so fun. Great atmosphere, good bar, excellent food.

We went on Saturday night. We had a reservation, but it still took 15-20 minutes to get seated. It was very noisy, which is not appealing to us. Some kind of sound dampening would be helpful. The food was very good and service was also good, but it was hard to enjoy when we had to shout at each other in order to be heard.

Has there been a change in chef(s) or management lately? We were shocked the minute we pulled into the parking lot because there was hardly anyone there and then, once we had started eating, we surmised the food wasn't as good as it had been on (many) prior occasions. The service was still awesome though! Hope this is just an isolated incident but it will be a while before I go back for Sunday brunch.
