My medium filet was well done. Wife’s sea bass was great. Service very slow. Waited 40 minutes for Creme brûlée and finally gave up and left. There was a special party in a separate room and I think they were understaffed. Great window table and view.

As always, the food was great. However, service tonight was over and above. Our server, Jenna, was by far the best server we’ve had. She made the experience 5 Star. When we return, we’ll ask for her. You should, too!

Was Passing Thru Springfield on way back to Chicago When We Decided To stop for Dinner. I Found Nick & Nino's on Open Table & it sounded like the type of Restaurant we Are Accustomed to Dining at but was not expecting it to Be The Gem that it is. Possibly The Best Calamari i have Ever Had, Highly Recommend it. Everything We ordered was prepared perfectly and Plated Beautifully And Rick , our Waiter , was extremely knowledgeable & Personable, A seasoned Pro whe made a great dining experience even Better. If You are used to Fine Dining in Chicago, New York , LA , Nick & Nino's will seem like a Bargain, Very Affordable . Will Definitely Return Next Time in Springfield Area.

We've dines here before and returned this time with out of town guests. The food as always was fantastic; aged steaks cooked to perfection, great sides. Table side service was fine but I'm unsure what the problem was with the kitchen. We ordered a cocktail and an appetizer, then ordered dinner when the appetizer arrived, about ten minutes or so later. The appetizer was timed fine, but 80 minutes later our food was delivered. It wasn't crowded, no large parties, it's unclear why dinner was soooo slow. no comment or apology from the wait staff, we just waited, then wolfed down our food when it finally arrived. Never had a problem in previous times we dined here, we can only hope this was a one-time issue.

Thank you for making this a very special night. We hope to dine there again soon and hopefully Rick will be our server!!!

We were amazed at Nick & Nino’s! Our first anniversary dinner was perfect in every way. Food, drinks, setting, staff- all awesome! The risotto was comparable to my experience in Italy, and the crab cakes were the best I’ve ever had. Towards the end, one large group (sounded like they were in town for a dental conference) was obviously clueless to the fact that everyone was enjoying the quiet and upscale ambiance. They definitely belonged at TGI Friday’s for their noise level. The waitress apologized for them; it wasn’t her fault but she recognized how irritating they were. We will be back for our 2nd anniversary!

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.
