Nick and Nino's Penthouse Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
We went for our Anniversary. Neither one of us had ever been. It made our night. It was absolutely amazing! We will definitely be going back. We even talked about going here every year for our anniversary on our way home. Thought about making a tradition out of it! 😊
Amazing from beginning to end! Espresso Martini was delicious, beautiful views from our table by the window. The lobster bisque was delicious as were the homemade breads. Then my husband surprised me with the Firecracker shrimp, Yum!! Then finally the entrees, grilled lobster and filet were excellent! The staff were very attractive, the chef even came to our table twice. He have us an extra side of corn grits just so we could try it. I must say they were fantastic! Great time!! Will definitely recommend it.
I absolutely love going to Nick and Ninos. We had the weekend free and decided to do a date night with another couple and chose Nick and Ninos. I have dined here before and the food is always delicious and the atmosphere is perfect for an adult dinner out. Total relaxation is the only way I can describe my experience. You don't have to worry about anything. The staff is very courteous and pleasant and the food is beyond amazing. Our waiter helped us pick out the perfect bottle of wine for our table that everyone enjoyed. I had the twin lobster tails with asparagus, corn, and the nicks potatoes. We also had the firecracker shrimp appetizer and the crab cake appetizer. Both were so delicious but the firecracker shrimp was my favorite. We took our dessert home with us and enjoyed a kaluah cheesecake later on that evening. I absolutely love going to Nick and Ninos and will be going back as soon as I can. If you get the chance to go you wont be disappointed.
My date dropped her phone, and in picking it up, fell out of her chair. After our meal, when asking to see the dessert menu, we were approached by a manager who told us that our conduct had disrupted other guests and that we should leave. When I asked whom we had upset, or what the issue was, it was then insinuated that my date was "on something" and that "I might be too" before security was called to escort us to the elevator.
As a frequent guest of Nick and Nino's, someone who has spent thousands of dollars at the Pinnacle Club and Nick and Nino's (who was also stay at the hotel that night), I will never return to the Wyndham, Nick and Nino's, or the Pinnacle Club ever again. The staff was down right unprofessional and rude to the point of embarrassment. If anything, they caused more of a scene than my date and I ever could have.

My husband had the "Porter House Lamb Chop". This was actually four lamb chops split. They were tough and the way they were cut made it too hard to try and get any meat from it. This was not as it was advertised. They did not put any vegetable or potato on the dish either which really made it unappealing. We ended up taking 1 1/2 of the chops home for our dogs.On our way out, we asked another diner waiting for the elevator how his meal was and he had the Lamb Chop as well and he said the exact same thing about his. I had the scallops the way they were prepared was good, but they did not taste real fresh. Kind of a strong fish taste. This place has great atmosphere and the staff were wonderful. We will not be going back. We have eaten here a few other times and did not seem to have a these same problems.
We gave advance notice when we booked the reservation that it was for a special occasion (birthday), so they did acknowledge that when we arrived, and seated us by the window with a beautiful view...which was nice. The waitress greeted us & wished us a happy birthday, also nice. We decided to skip the appetizer (nothing really caught our eye) and we both ordered the cowboy ribeye, medium...with a side of the corn grits & asparagus. We ordered a bottle of red pinot (very limited wine selection)...then the waitress brought out the break basket. We were excited about the large selection of choices, but were disappointed, as they weren't very good. Raison bread was stale; cheese crisp was burnt; pretzel bread had no salt. Steaks arrived - both steaks were rare, not medium. The flavor was great, they were just undercooked. Marbeling was good on the steaks, but the fat was still white (undercooked). Grits were good. Asparagus was awful - it said it was roasted, but appeared / tasted more like it was boiled without any seasoning. For desert we shared the crème brulee...that was good. Overall, the meal was disappointing. As a side note, the restaurant should look at replacing their silverware - the knives were very dull...and the spoon w/ the crème brulee wasn't the right spoon for the pudding based desert. FYI - we did not ask to speak w/ management about the food, we probably should have given them a chance to correct it.
I travel for work so I eat out ALOT. Imagine my surprise when the restaurant on the roof of my hotel turned out to be such a gem. The filets are fantastic (the truffle crust is to die for) but literally every bite I put in my mouth was heaven. I returned for a second visit just last week and we had the same waiter, Rick. Rick remembered both my friend and myself, where we were from, etc. I was shocked. Rick is the kind of waiter you remember but when he also remembers you? Amazing. Keep up the good work folks and I’ll be back!
We had a great experience, other than spending $200 for just my husband and I. The food was good, but it was very expensive. I requested a window seat and was told "it's for reservations only" but I had the reservation and had requested a window seat at the time of reservation.
This restaurant messed up the celebration of our anniversary. The service was glacial. The drinks came after the appetizer, and the drinks weren't made correctly. The food, which took far too long to arrive, was not exceptional and certainly not worth the high price. I would not recommend Nick and Nico's.
Service, view, price but the food was amazing. Lobster Bisque had a secret ingredient just enough to be unique but all you would expect in the traditional but with a twist. The Sea Bass was cooked to perfection and was more like a flaky filet!
Don't miss this venue if your in Springfield,IL.
We were on vacation. We looked for an upscale restaurant and we found it on the 30th floor, the view was great except it was foggy out, and the capital wasn't lit up. The food was absolutely fabulous! We had pork with a vinaigrette sauce over potatoes and carrots. Just marvelous, the dessert was a cheesecake over a brownie, very rich. Thank you for making our trip to Springfield Illinois fabulous!
My husband and I went over for our anniversary dinner. It was our first visit there. I had asked for a window seat when I made the reservation on Open Table but they were not able to accommodate since it was a Saturday night and we were wanting a 7:00 reservation. Service was a bit slow to start but ended up good. We were 30 minutes early (we were going to have a drink at the bar) but they told us our table was ready and went ahead and seated us. Our waitress had a bigger party she was taking care of as well as a few other tables and we all seemed to be at the same point in the process so I think she just got slammed. Food was very good. We had a bone -in ribeye and twin lobster tails as well as the hash brown side (which was crispy and awesome!). The entrees came with sides which we weren't aware of. On the menu they appeared to be a la carte so we actually ended up with way too much food. Chef came out and visited with us after the meal which I thought was a nice touch. Bill was $250. We each had 2 cocktails plus we had an appetizer and split a dessert. I would go back on a less busy night when we could sit by the window and enjoy the view.
