In a word, OUTSTANDING! My son, a chef in Kansas City, was visiting and I wanted to take him someplace that he would enjoy. Nick and Nino's turned out to be the perfect choice. Everything about the meal was outstanding. The service was outstanding and all of our food choices were similarly perfect. We were never rushed, and the noise level is so low that you can easily converse across the table. This is not an inexpensive restaurant, but if you are looking for the best dining experience in Springfield, you can not go wrong at Nick and Nino's. As an aside, the view from the 30 floor restaurant is lovely. The city lights of Springfield make a perfect backdrop to a perfect dining experience.

We had a wonderful 10-year anniversary at Nick and Nino's. Our waiter, Rick, was wonderful and very informative. The view was impressive ( unfortunately it was rainy and foggy on that particular day). We were very impressed with the food and as a cook myself I'm very critical. Desert was wonderful and we taken by the chefs "happy anniversary" edition to the desert. Thanks to everyone for a great time!

It took an unreasonably long time for food to arrive even though it was not a busy night, when it did the fish was over cooked and dried out. The waiter was apologetic and it was obvious something wrong was going on in the kitchen.

The food was good, atmosphere good, music a little loud, our waitress was slow and paid more attention to the other tables than ours.
we almost got up and walked out. I reserved ahead of time, and confirmed ahead of time. The dress code was Business Casual. My friend and I dress well, she had a dress on and I slacks, shirt and sport coat, to match the atmosphere of the Restaurant. We were seated along a wall instead of an open table by the window, I had to move the table away from the wall for comfort. The reason we wanted to leave, the table that the waitress waited on, the lady sitting at the table in our sight had her SHOES AND SOCKS OFF!!! Later on they let a couple in, Sat them at the Window, and the Guy had on Dirty Jeans, a Grey Tee Shirt, no Collar and Work Boots!!!!!!! I have pictures to prove it and I am sending to the Restaurant. What is Business Casual?????? We should have Left and our Bill was $160.00 not counting Tip. My advice to anyone wanting to dine at this restaurant, wear anything you want, its all about the $$$ not dressing for the occasion, it was my girlfriends Birthday, that was spoiled by unsightly guest that should have been stopped at the door.

The food was great and the service was absolutely excellent. I made a special request for a certain table and was accommodated. If I had to find something less than perfect, I would say that the Crab Cakes’s are not my favorite appetizer. We have eaten there many times before and I have to say I prefer the firecracker shrimp and calamari over the Crab Cakes. They were still good, just not my favorite item. I would totally recommend dining here.

Food and atmosphere are unique! Great views of the Springfield skyline! However, would have to rate lower because of service .... a second round of drinks were brought out (which we were charged for) that weren't ordered and when ordering dessert they would not swap out a scoop of vanilla ice cream for the (alcoholic) Manhattan that came with the chocolate cake even though it was for my 14yo son. (Turns out we were charged separately for the Manhattan that came with the cake anyway which could have easily been done without. You would think that they would care more about customer retention than leaving that $4+ charge on our $300+ dinner bill.

He was also very knowledgeable about the food choices, how everything was prepared and what side orders would compliment our meal. Water glasses were always filled. The food was excellent! By far, this was the best meal we’ve had! We will make this our go to favorite! Excellence all around!!

This was our first time here and they did not disappoint. We were seated right away even though we were a little early. The staff was very attentive to our wants and needs. Wonderful bread basket and the steaks were delicious. We tried the Nicks potatoes to share, tasty but would probably try something else next time.

Absolutely the best filets on the planet. The crust and sauce options are so fun to explore. Nicks potatoes are a must! Our server Rick was so attentive. Our only mishap was an unevenly adjoined table that caused a wine spill. Definitely going back for our next special occasion. Thank you for a great evening.

On Valentine's evening they have a special menu with an appetizer to share, entree choice from 3 and desert with champagne. The meal and the service was wonderful and the atmosphere very nice for special occasions. My only complaint and reason for not giving a 5 star rating is there was not a desert choice, only one option. That option contained nuts and I have an allergy to nuts.

Our server was knowledgeable, appropriately friendly, and efficient. She did not try to become our best friend and allowed us our space and time in ordering. The food, which is pricey for Springfield, Illinois, was delicious and made to perfection. Although our table was not right next to the window, we still had a decent view of Springfield at night. We were too full to taste the desserts, however, they looked delicious.
