The food was excellent and the service even better. Ambiance was perfect. While it's a little more costly than an average restaurant but I thought the prices were very fair for the product that was served and the service that was provided. I would definitely return and would recommend it to anyone. Rick was exceptional and we would always ask for him, he was very helpful in his suggestions and he was very attentive to anything we might have wanted.

We were on a family visit to the Lincoln sights in Springfield. I chose this restaurant because of the view and the menu. We were exceedingly pleased with the exceptional service which was extremely attentive to all. The food was exceptional. We are familiar with fine dining in both Chicago and New York City; this restaurant is at that same high level.

The food was AMAZING! We had the Risotto euovo Italian and the Gnocchi with grilled chicken. Both were DELICIOUS! We also each had a "side" of grilled shrimp with 9 skewered large shrimp that were SO GOOD! Only recommendation is to share a side of shrimp because the servings are very generous! Then there might be room for to try one of their many delicious looking desserts - unfortunately, we were already full! Can't recommend this place enough! We will go back again, maybe for next year's anniversary!

Not one bad meal. As a group of 4 we had sea bass, filet mignon, flight of filets and pork chop for main course. Each diner loved their meal and felt it was tender and flavorful. The roll selection was great. We tried specialty drinks and the mandarin? was the group favorite. It is pricey so be prepared. I think it was the most we have ever paid for a meal but it was excellent. We will go again for a special occasion. Service was excellent!

Have eaten here several times previously and always think of it for special occasions. Celebrated the engagement of our son and his fiancé and as usual it was a wonderful experience. A bit noisy at first but the restaurant became more quiet later in our meal and more enjoyable. A wonderful evening in a wonderful setting.

Took my wife for her birthday. Yes, this place is expensive but the chef there is a top notch and you get what you pay for. It was the best steak that I have ever had or at least that I can remember. The best view in Springfield for dinner. The staff is so amazing, you are the priority. 10 stars.

My visit to Nick & Nino's required about a 90 minute drive from my location. My wife and I were celebrating her birthday and wanted to go somewhere out of our usual dining area. It was well worth the drive. First off I must mention the staff. Extremely friendly and well-versed in explaining all of the offerings available. You know the meal should be good when the staff is proud to work at a restaurant. We had the crab cakes/bites for an appetizer which were delicious. That was followed by Caesar salads with bread. Also good, and the bread was a surprise! Multiple offerings of bread from soft rolls to pretzel bread to toasted cinnamon raisin bread were very tasty. We both had steaks (it is a steakhouse lol) and they were very flavorful. We each had a different crust on the steak and tried some of the sauces, which were great all the way around. For sides, we shared Nick's Potatoes (dreamy creamy cheesy potatoes) and the asparagus also full of good flavors and tastes. At the end we both managed to consume some awesome desserts: my wife had a cheesecake with Kahlua in it and I had a tall chocolate cake. It was hard to decide what to have for dessert because it all looked so good. I have only good things to say about the entire experience (food & service) and it is definitely worth another visit in the future.

Very swanky restaurant and the prices show it. And splitting a meal has a fee of $15, which we thought extravagant! So we shared an appetizer (stuffed mushrooms) and then 2 of us had real meals and 2 of us had appetizers. It was all plenty of food. AND delicious! The mushrooms were very tasty and the lobster bisque divine! The crabcakes were very good, as were the sea bass dinners. Good and service were very good, but the prices a bit much (especially if you wished to split a meal!) Nice ambiance. The lounge next door needs some work; furniture very used and out dated. But the views from the 30th floor were great!

I was disappointed that I informed them of a birthday celebration via Internet and nothing was mentioned at the dinner. When I mentioned it, a piece of cake was suggested but it was nothing special especially at the $8 price. Also the orange sauce and the sweet potato with bacon dish with my scallops wasn’t appetizing. Steaks were superior tho.

Even though Nick and Nino's is a steakhouse restaurant, the scallops were awesome. Wine list and reference to our meal entree was recommendations were perfect. Definitely will be eating there in the next month - overlooking the city was nice. However, the dessert list was definitely a game changer for our next visit.

The food was to die for! Rick our waiter/server makes it all worthwhile...He is the maestro of food service and conversation. So in conclusion; hidden on top of the Wyndham Hotel Springfield is a wonderful restaurant that satisfies all taste buds. My steak was G R E A T !!!!

Ask Rick "Nick and Nino's" Maitre d' to try and get you a window table. It was worth it.
The master of the drinks was Mr. Higginnbotham. Talented service at its best.

I have no idea what my wife ordered...but she was in 7th Heaven!

It was our 47th Anniversary Celebration.
Celebrating... 47 years of "bliss" for me and 16 or 18 years of "bliss" for my lovely wife.

Jenna, our server was very cordial, prompt, professional, and helpful throughout the meal. She made our experience a delight. What an experience is was. Starting off with the delicious firecracker shrimp appetizers. A couple of refreshing drinks, oh how I wish I could remember the names. Peach with champagne, a cucumber with hint of mint with vodka.
A beautiful assortment of bread. My favorite was the cinnamon raisin. The house salads with candied nuts was very tasty. For the meal, I tried the Charred Sea Scallops with lobster tail over sweet potatoes. Out of this world. My wife, tried the filet mignon with truffle crust. She loved it. We had to try each other’s dish. Oh my, such excellent flavors. In addition we tried a side of asparagus and augraten potatoes.
What a wonderful, exquisite evening.
My compliments to the chef.

Overall a great dining experience in a quiet romantic setting with excellent food and service. All the food was top-notch. My fiancé got the filet and I got the flight of filets (3 small filets with a variety of house made crusts) and they were cooked perfectly to order and were very tender. Our waiter was exceptional and was very knowledgeable of the menu. Finally, the desserts from the in house pastry chef all looked amazing and the homemade ice cream was excellent. Some decor was a little tacky (ex. candle holder) and I would have preferred a paper menu for drinks and desserts but these are only minor complaints. I believe the prices are slightly too high (about $75 a person), but given they are the only restaurant to offer this level of service and food outside of the Chicago area in Illinois it may be justified.
