We made reservations at 10pm and we waited forever. Finally at 1130 pm and they still kept saying we had to wait and decided to leave.

“Don’t bother coming on Friday’s or Saturday’s” is what we were told by one of the staff members, and was he right.. I actually wish we had listened and just left. We were seated 45 minutes after our reservation time. Our waiter was nice enough but the place was WAAAYYYYYY understaffed for being so busy. We were never offered bread. The food was fine, nothing to get excited over. My husband and I travel all over the world and this was the most disappointed we have ever been with a dining experience.

Never again on a Saturday night. We were seated one hour and five minutes later than our reservation.Never seen so many large tables of people who would not leave all of whom were extremely loud. The food was pretty good until I got home and then I was ill until morning. The service did not compare to the usual service. The place was so overbooked that all of the poor employees looked like "deer in the headlights" and were running everywhere. The tables were packed so tightly together to accommodate the horrific overbooking that nobody could get to the restroom without walking to the front in order to get to the restrooms. Lastly, the noise level was barbaric. I could not hear one word of the conversation at our table most of the night. I wish I had my $700 back.

Had a 7:30 reservation. Arrived early and was told by the hostess that some tables were being cleared and the table would be ready shortly. One hour later, we were notified that our table was ready. Restaurant was obviously overbooked. 10-15 minute delay is understandable. A 1 hour wait with zero communication is unacceptable.

For a steakhouse very disappointing. You walk in and it feels more like a club right away, which is cool at first because it’s different and fits the area. Was told our table wasn’t ready so went to bar to get a drink. The bar, which wasn’t packed, maybe had a bunch of drinks ordered from tables, took over 10 minutes to greet us finally got us a drink. After that we proceeded to wait close to 50 minutes for our reservation. Again, for a steakhouse very disappointing. Not good service. Food was good, the managers and wait staff did their best to make up for a poor start. They did good after that. If have to choose a steakhouse, prob won’t be here

This is a high end restaurant It is a place that the who's who of Dallas come to be seen. Or people like me go to see them. Food is great Price is very high if you order the Japanese Steaks but they are very good. If you order off that menu be prepared for the bill it will be impressive.

My wife and two sons have been dining at Nick and Sams since we we’re introduced back in 2010. We live in Little Rock Arkansas and travel to Dallas 2-3 times annually. If we’re in town, we dine at at Nick and Sams. For Lunch, we frequent Coal Vines up the street.

The Lemon Sole was incredible, as well as the forrest/wild mushrooms. They are always so good. Bring back the regular chop salad though, and not that one you replaced it with.

We loved this place. The decor and atmosphere was very nice and cozy. We ordered crab cakes, calamari, lobster mac and cheese, filet mignon, ribeyes, bone-in filet, with sides of grilled asparagus and mushroom. The food was delicious especially the crab cakes and the steaks. However, the filet mignon order was under cooked (too red for medium) and the bone-in filet was burnt on the outside so it kinda ruined the taste. The asparagus was also overdone as well. In addition, we were excited for the desserts which was creme brûlée (very good) and a HUGE cotton candy with sparkler!! Overall, we had very good experience there and will definitely come back!

We had a birthday dinner on Saturday evening. There were 5 of us. Myself and the birthday girl ordered the Dry Aged Cowboy steak and ordered it Medium. The inside was perfect but the outside was completely charcoaled and made the entire steak taste burnt. We ordered a filet instead and were charged for the Cowboy even though we couldn’t eat it. Very disappointed with that even though they took care of the filet and dessert. I should’ve paid for the filet not the steak I could not eat. Besides that, everything else was great. All the other food was fantastic and the server was very friendly.

Great place to hang out for drinks or celebrate a serious event. Came for my wife’s birthday and after having eaten at Michelin started restaurants, I have low expectations for most places. I was expecting just a generic overpriced steakhouse. This place was an exception. Fantastic wait staff. Wagyu was amazing- I recommend that. Toro was amazing.

Made a reservation to celebrate my birthday and we ended up having to wait 45 minutes to be seated. My balloons were accidentally let out of my car by valet. We were brought to our table by a very rude and disrespectful woman!!! We were maybe seated for about 15 minutes before me and my guest decided to leave. No one tried to solve the issue or apologize

Service was extremely slow. They quoted the seafood sampler at $28 and neglected to mention that it was $28 per person. The filet was delicious but would not return due to slow service. It took two hours to deliver a meal without alcohol.

It was good, nearly great. Bread was pretty lackluster though. In my mind, bread in a place like this should be better than what I can get at Walmart. Steak was tender, superb, best Brussels sprouts ever!

Nick & Sam's is terrific. Great food, great service. I'm not a fan of the ambiance. It's almost like a night club type feel. Lot of people packed in. The wagyu is the way to go.
