Absolutely superb dining experience! Our server Amanda S was extremely attentive and answered all of our questions regarding the restaurant as well as some "local" questions. The food was prepared perfectly and was among the best we have ever had. Nick and Nino's is on our "must stop" list anytime we are in the Springfield area. A truly memorable experience!!!

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.

We picked this restaurant because of the view. Unfortunately, it was the second time requesting a window seat and was given a table in the middle. I understand that there is limited window seating but we were very disappointed as we had guests from out of town dining with us.

I am not one to criticize, but I will this once.
My wife and I have been there on several occasions.
I know you probably don't have control over the
Pinnacle Room, but I have seen better furniture at
Goodwill. As for Nik and Ninos, Rick was an outstanding
host and our waitress was very good. What I did not
appreciate, even though I could have said something,
was them putting the 20% gratuity on my bill. That
should have been at my discretion. It was very small,
I brought a birthday cake my grandkids got for grandma
and they charged me $25 extra for that. That was my
fault, I should have asked first. I had the pork chop,
that was raw and cold. I could have sent it back, but
I don't complain, I just ate it. The prices are not an issue,
and my wife ( the birthday girl ) thanked me for a great
evening , but she told me she would just as soon not go
back. I agreed.

Thanks,

I am a frequent diner, love the experience and great tableside service.
Had the most amazing Cowboy steak with garlic crusts and 3 different sauces, my wife got the Scallops with bacon sweet potato hash and she loved it. Nick's potato's are to die for.
I would recommend starting off with the Firecracker shrimp.
Thank you Nick and Ninos for a great night

A gem in downtown Springfield! Superb food, exemplar service, spectacular view. This venue is just 13 tables and makes for a unique fine dining experience. Steaks were cooked to perfection. Interesting crusts and sauces. Every element of the meal, from appetizers to desserts, was fabulous. Chef Bradly walked the dining room, chatting with guests. He offered us a sample of his new goat cheese ice cream with balsamic reduction. Don't knock it until you've tried it...so creamy and decadent...tastes like cheesecake! Our new favorite fine dining spot in the Capitol City!

I have been several times and have historically been very pleased. On this occasion the bone in ribeye was thin and over cooked, the filet was not of the quality it has been in the past. For the prices, you’d expect more consistency and quality food.

This experience was exceptional! The steaks were outstanding, and the waitress, Jennifer, did an exceptional job explaining things since this was our first visit! Steaks, crusts, and sauces were beyond compare. Side dishes and salads were top of the line as well. The prices are on the high side for Springfield, however, we realized that we were also paying for the ambience and views from atop a 30 story hotel. We will definitely return, hopefully sooner rather than later! One of two of the best restaurants in Springfield!

We had never been to Nick and Nino’s prior to this day. We had heard some mixed feedback from friends but were hopeful for a good experience. First, we were greeted by the host who was very friendly. Our waitress, Jennifer, was very knowledgeable about the menu, able to offer suggestions and pairings, and was very friendly. The bus person was quick to clean up our empty dishes and keep our water glasses full. We were very pleased with our food from appetizer to dessert and the staff were great! We would definitely return to Nick and Nino’s and recommend to our friends.
