Phenomenal experience. Our waiter, waitstaff and Skylar were amazing with above and beyond with service for our group. No where else better to celebrate in Dallas. They make it a dream. Just show up and enjoy!

The best steak I have ever had. Our server was incredible, full of life and information! Everything we tried was amazing from the broccoli app, grits, to our steaks! So much fun!

Tables and walk ways are too tight. Kept getting bumped. Wait staff also kept asking to take my plate away when I was still eating. Caused us to feel rushed as if they needed the table. So many BD candles made me feel light and headed in such an enclosed space. The waiters were very attentive and provided great service from the moment we stepped in. The hosts at the door need better attitudes and a smile at Customers always helps. They need the same training as the wait staff cause the waiters were very friendly and helpful. The hostesses are a turn off. The decorations were beautiful. Wish music had been on to damper the talking and enhance the holiday ambiance. Prices are high but service is so good we will return. Food needs more seasoning and to be more hot. Salad was great.

Such a broad menu, including sushi and cook-at your table certified Wagu beef. We had a terrific post-Thanksgiving family dinner. I wish they had more gluten-free options. The mashed potatoes (due to spices used) and the marvelous cream corn were off limits for our Celiac daughter. It is quite easy to make these dishes gluten-free with some basic changes.

We’ve gone a few times and the dining experience was wonderful. Our waiter was not on point this night.
Never showed us meats and shrimp.
Didn’t offer bread. Rushed us through dinner.
It wasn’t fully booked at that time. I never realized that good food without service really affects a special night out.

We make a yearly trip there to celebrate our son’s bday in conjunction with Thanksgiving. This has been our 5th year what a disappointment. The food especially the apps were over salted and overcooked.

Sorely disappointed. We won’t be returning next year.

Food was outstanding as usual. Service was great until the end and seemed to slow way down. Our table wasn’t the best but we’d made last minute reservations so did not let it effect our meal. Always a good bet.

We went there for Thanksgiving and it was a wonderful place to celebrate the holiday! The food and service were exceptional! It is a perfect place to eat where you can have a conversation and enjoy the western coziness of the steakhouse.

Nick and Sams sets the standard for service and food. If you have a special occasion, I assure you they will help you take it up another notch. This is our go to place for Anniversaries, Birthdays, and other special moments. Thank you!

I must say first of all that the food was excellent, however, the service was really sub-par. We were seated and greeted by our waiter and then left to our own devices for 25 mins. Our waiter eventually came back and apologized for leaving us but he had one of his “regulars” come in and he had to take care of them. I thought all customers were supposed to be treated equally. Not so at Nick & Sam’s. Everyone at our table was offended by this comment. Once we finally ordered—after I stopped a waiter and told him we wanted to order, our service was spotty at best. At an hour after we were seated, we were served our salads. I was never even offered a refill on my iced tea. It was a special occasion, a birthday, and nothing was ever said about this although it was listed on our reservation. Very disappointing experience.

Our server was amazing. Very very very personable and quick. However, dressed in a suite and my wife in a dress we were sat in the very back corner of the restaurant. It was cold and we were right next to the kitchen/service entrance. We didn't spend $1,000's of dollars on this meal but where we were seated did influence the decision to purchase a 2nd bottle of wine and that 3rd appetizer and 2nd desert. If seated next time in that area we will refuse service. Not what we expected when we booked nick and sams.

We made reservations for my daughter's 19th birthday celebration. Our reservation for 8pm a party of 12 was made weeks in advance. Upon arrival it took almost 30 minutes for us to be seated. The food was amazing and we loved the table sized sides. However, some of our sides never made it to the table and the tables are packed so tightly into the dining room that the wait staff kept knocking into my chair when navigating around our table. The rainbow birthday cake was simply glorious. Although not a perfect experience, we will definitely be back!

Brought out my salad before I was done with my appetizer. Excusable. But then they brought out my entree while I was mid bite of my salad, no where near done eating it. I don’t like feeling rushed to eat when I’m spending that kind of money. Pay attention or ask if we’re ready for our next course.

Last time we were here for a birthday they made it very special, nothing was done for this birthday except confetti sprinkled on the table. The waiter didn’t tell us about any specials, didn’t go through anything. When we ordered our appetizer he asked us what we wanted for our meals and then we barely saw him again. Overall we didn’t enjoy our experience and didn’t feel the birthday we were celebrating was ever acknowledged.

Overbooked w lines an hour It was Sat at 830 but I don’t make reservation 2 wks in advance to wait an hour at a bar w no service like I was Mr Invisible. Over booked w 50 or more frustrated tables. Been here a dozen times. Will never be back at prime time gain but that’s all available so we took it, service want as expected incl a table! Too many good fine dining steal fish houses in Dallas. Could have picked one of others that always treats me fine. I’m not an entitled prince. Why would eat there. Didn’t sign up for rock concert shoving and fighting for a seat. Manager rescued us and got us a back bar seat at bar. I’ve had so many great times here but left a very bad taste. They know this isn’t what these patrons came for at all. Despite food was great. Maybe it’s about greed and ridiculous over booking w a crowd of angry people some waiting even longer. I expect no place w reservations to provide this kind of disrespectful service. Five servers interacted w me in first bar. All assertiveness. No one asked if they could
Help. After an hr two had taken my order
And never were seen again. One or two said I’ll be right back too. One asked if I was ok. I said no. Love this place eaten many times. One pays for a comforting delightful relaxing night not an hr or
More hassle . Not who they represent themselves to be. I was hosting a guest for her BdaY. Guess I’ll lean toward Pappas, town hearth , Als Perry’s Del Frisco Oceans Primr etc or cook at home. I Hate losing this place. Will return in
Months at off hr maybe

the food and restaurant was outstanding, it was a very very busy night so even with a reservation the there was somewhat of a wait.
since it was so busy with big parties our party of 2 didn't get outstanding service.
the food was off the chart good...and even with the crowd it was a great experience.

Not sure why; but the experience I had this last Saturday was not as impressive compare to other times.

We had a large group of people for dinner but this comment is strictly about the reservation my associate made for 7:30pm; which we did not get seated until around 9pm. Of course they ran out of toro bluefin tuna and the silver oak wine we wanted. And I ordered the 3 prawns with my steak that never came, which I only realized after leaving the restaurant at 11:30pm when I was pretty tired already.

Also somehow the waiter missed on taking my dessert order which I had to ask later for to go.

I’m sure this is an isolated incident and definitely recommend this restaurant; but thought that this could have handled better for much better dining experience.

Worst experience ever. We made a reservation more than a month in advance and was never actually sat. More concerned with being trendy than providing actual service to its customers. Stay away!

As always - great food in an energetic environment. We booked our reservation well in advance for an 8 person business meal. Our table ended up being L shaped, and in the bar. Our guests on the bar side were jostled by active bar patrons, and it was nearly impossible to hear. We have done other business meals and have always been seated in the dining room, which is fun, but is quieter and we are not subject to getting bumped and jostled around.
We asked to be re-seated, which they were unable to accommodate, however our server was fantastic, and they did treat us to a bottle of wine and dessert. I will go back.
