I was not happy or impressed with Nick & Sams. We went on a Wednesday night with my son. It was our first time there and they were out of the portobello appetizer, they were out of bread and the calamari was very tough, it was pretty loud inside, and they served me an espresso with a coffee spoon. The Kobe beef and chateau brienne were very good and our server was very nice and also very knowledgeable. I think for a pricey restaurant like that, they should pay more attention to detail.

Everyone in the party loved the food. Appreciated the round table for our party of 9 and will definitely recommend it if you are visiting Dallas. Everything was executed professionally and fully synchronized. Service was great, ambience really nice and upscale. Slightly noisy, but it is to be expected.

We had dinner at Nick & Sam’s for my birthday and I cannot say enough good things about our experience! Everything about the evening was fantastic. The service, the food, the atmosphere, the staff, everything was absolutely amazing. Our waitress could not have been better and made our evening such a delight. They definitely made my birthday one to remember and I can’t wait to go back.

I’ve had better food... cramped space... you have to yell to try & have a conversation ... never got comfortable... in my opinion an overrated experience. I will not be dining there again anytime soon.

My wife and I decided to celebrate our anniversary here given the number of great experiences in the past. Unfortunately, this visit was extremely disappointing. The service was slow... I mean, after getting seated and waiting 10 minutes while seeing others that came after us being served, our patience ran thin and we had to get up and ask for water. The waiter that came said they were still figuring out who would be serving our table. Odd to us since we were having an early dinner and saw a number of the attendants just standing around near the cooking area. Our waitress that finally came, although nice, seemed lackadaisical. While others were being shown the tray of meats and the crab, we weren’t. We ended up ordering a chateaubriand, sushi roll, shrimp cocktail, and some sides. We have had the chateaubriand before and had recalled how great it was but when we got our steak, it was heavily charred on the outside (don’t think that qualifies as medium or medium rare). The waitress didn’t come back so we just decided to live with what we had. The sides were good, the shrimp tasted like they were frozen, the sushi was ok...nothing amazing l, and like I said the steak was poorly cooked. No complimentary dessert for the occasion; at least we didn’t get any. Past experiences have been good here but this one, for our anniversary, was a big flop.

The Brussel sprouts need some work. Also, was surprised to see men wearing baseball hats backwards and white T-shirt’s. One lady was wearing a very revealing jog bra of some kind, and it was five sizes too small for her. Dress code? Just FYI. Service was great, rest of our meal was very good.

Besides the $100 crab legs that our waiter had no intention of telling us the price of everything was good. Also the 16oz ribeye I got was 6oz of fat. The staff was very nice other than our waiter.... he seemed to not want to wait on us.

Made this reservation for a birthday, won’t be celebrating anything here again. The service was not great at all. You get better service at a chili’s. The food was at best mediocre. Overpriced for the quality. Very bland food. Bathrooms were nasty!! Overall was just very unimpressed.

My steak was sent back 2 times as it was improperly cooked medium. It was almost blue the first time, then rare then the last time the chef was obviously annoyed so it came out well done. Terrible they don’t know how to the steak properly at a steak House

Bathrooms were disgusting, music was loud and club like, interior looked hodge podged together nothing looked right together, we waited for 30 minutes even though we had a reservation, the other patrons were loud obnoxious and classless. Not classy like what youd expect when eating a $50+ steak.

Nick & Sam’s is consistently one of the best dining experiences in Dallas. I have been there as a customer, I’ve brought customers, and I’ve been there with friends. The food is fantastic and the service is terrific. It’s actually amazing that they can be that consistent. They’re doing it right.

It was a very busy night on a Wednesday, and it seems like they didn't have enough wait staff because we hardly saw our server. He wasn't the friendliest, but luckily there were other servers who we marvelous. It was so crowded that my back was touching the man behind me's back and we both had our own tables. The food is great though. We had the port steak shared, and cream corn, and broccoli. You have to get the smores dessert!

We had great expectations especially because we had dined at Ruth Chris in Houston for my birthday- we thought Nick & Sam was going to top that experience. First our table wasn’t cleaned after waiting for 15mins to be seated, so we had to be walked back out to be seated again. My menu was still wet and had food stains. Food was great but our server forgot our drinks twice she placed the order but forgot to pick the drinks up- once is a honest mistake, twice is just a bit much. The service was very touch and go- definitely let down.

My wife and I first met here 12 years ago and were engaged here 9 years ago. I chose to have us return to celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary. We have been for a couple prior anniversaries and it didn’t left up to our expectations. This time was completely different. We felt well taken care of and got the experience that we so fondly remember about our favorite steakhouse. Ryan our server was excellent and took great care of us. Thanks for making our evening special.

Absolutely phenomenal experience! The service was hands down the best service we have ever experienced. The staff went beyond expectations through accommodations, common curiosity, quality drink and food, inventiveness, etc. They went above and beyond to make certain our experience was above average with attention to detail and passion. The restaurant ambience was superb; it was apparent all staff was equally motivated and trained to provide excellent service. Overall, super impressed with Nick from the perfectly-prepared food to the top notch service! Would highly recommend and will be back!

Nick & Sam’s was fantastic. We tried the ohmi and the Kobe beef, and they were the most delicious meat we’ve ever had. The service was phenomenal, and the whole wait staff was so attentive. We visited for my my birthday, and we were offered complementary champagne and caviar. It was quite the experience. We will definitely be swinging through again on our next trip to Dallas.
