We loved the food. The service was great. The noise level was very high making it difficult to have a conversation. The prices are higher than I've experienced at other prime steak houses. The restaurant was very crowded and we would have liked to have seen more precautions taken to help decrease the potential spread of COVID-19. All in all I would recommend Nick and Sam's and I would return for another meal.

Food was great, other than the bone marrow gravy that we ordered with our steaks. Very simply, do not under any circumstances order this addition to your food. It is not done well and smells horrible. Outside of that, the steaks were perfect, the salads were excellent, the 6lb crab was awesome, the desserts were fantastic, our server was awesome and the wine is great. If you can afford it - and it's the most expensive place I've ever eaten - you should give it a go!

An incredible restaurant experience with great food, but it felt uncomfortably crowded in the midst of a pandemic. I would not go again until the pandemic ends, but I would be first in line after that point.

This was the 1st time we've dined at this establishment and were very impressed. We decided to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary and the staff went out of their way to make it a special night for us. The food and atmosphere were absolutely amazing and I would recommend this place to anyone!

The restaurant was overbooked and too crowded! The hostess was rude! We waited 45 minutes for our table which was too small for our party. There was no social distancing or COVID guidelines followed and guest were not required to wear a mask and most did not have one on!

Went to Nick and Sam’s to celebrate my birthday. The server was excellent as were all of the other staff members that helped along the way from cocktails to caviar to dinner to the champagne and desserts at the end of the meal. I have love Nock and Sam’s since the 90s and this was probably my favorite meal of them all.

Dined here on a Sunday night during pandemic. Did not see much social distancing. Restaurant was crowded and very loud.

Food-
oyster presentation very good. Seemed very fresh.

Caesar salad was tasty and a generous portion. Joe’s salad was very good.

Center cut ribeye was tender and flavorful. Dry aged NY strip - very good

Fried rice side was amazing- highly recommended.

On the negative—
I did think the wine prices were a bit high compared to other similar steak houses. Also, they were out of tuna entree and one of the steaks on the menu.

Marcus, our waiter was outstanding
Overall- 4.5out of 5.

This is one of my favorite steak houses, everyone is always pleasant and helpful they are eager to make you experience the best possible. I love the ambiance and the food is amazing I have had almost everything on the menu and still come back for more! what I love most about this place compared to other upscale places is they treat everyone the same no matter age, race, or ethnicity Thank you Nick and Sams!

Amazing dinner and experience. Steaks and Sashimi were amazing. Wait staff was excellent.

It was a little more crowded than I thought it would be due to Covid.

Overall great experience- our waiter was amazing. Very attentive but not too much, presented us all the specials and options for the night. Food wise, the way egg rolls were amazing. Sushi was great and the side portions were more than generous. Only disappointment was the lobster Mac and cheese; pretty much zero flavor. Also the 7 layer cake was awesome and great presentation but didn't taste very good, kinda dry and lacking flavor.

First timers to Nick & Sam’s. Only ever had takeout from here.
Initial impression: decor is awesome. There is almost no COVID spacing and the place quickly became packed.
Calamari is good, almost like tempura fried? It was very good.

Main entree: steaks were amazing. Got the 48oz porterhouse and the long bone ribeye. Porterhouse is definitely the way to go. Put that ribeye to shame.

Service: Yeesh. We had a really friendly waitress. And service started out great and then quickly went off the rails as the restaurant became busier. Maybe she just got really busy? I don’t know.
We were left waiting and looking around multiple times for our primary server. First to order another drink, which I quickly gave up on. Then to ask for our food to be boxed up - an attendant boxed it up for us. (Our server never checked in with us between the time the main entree was delivered and the time it was boxed up. We saw her next when she brought the dessert menu) Then after dessert was dropped off. We waited for another bit with our card on the table, done with dessert, just waiting on the check. Which is done at the table which is kinda cool and interesting. But then that was it...and our date was over.

Overall the food was good. But the service was slow and inconsistent. We spent far too long looking around for our server on multiple occasions.

To spend money a large sum of money and get the service we received left a sour taste in our mouths.
And it’s likely we won’t be back.

Plenty of other nice steakhouses in DFW area with comparable food/steaks but better service - some of which are at a slightly cheaper price point.

Thankful to have tried it. And I understand the hype because the steaks were amazing. But for me personally, service is just as important as the food. And the service just really missed the mark.

All of this to say: our next date night will be elsewhere. Al Biernats is a much better option in my opinion.

Alan was our server and he was absolutely fabulous! He gave amazing recommendations as well as Nick and Sam's steak presentation which walks you through all their cuts and some of their fancier seafood options as well. The ambiance was amazing, they had a live pianist for about an hour and it made it that much greater! Don't even get me started on the food!!! We got the crab cake, steak tartare, wagyu sampler as well as a 10oz filet, mashed potatoes, brussles sprouts, and for dessert, we got baked alaska. When I tell you that EVERYTHING I put in my mouth was phenomenal, I mean it. Highly highly recommend going here, it's an experience that you need to have.
