Although we had a reservation, the hostess left us waiting for 40 minutes. While we where waiting at the bar nobody offered us any drinks or water. When I asked the hostess if she could send us a waiter at the bar, she looked at me as if I was asking something out of this world.
With all that it doesnt matter how good the food is. Even before we were seated at the table our experience was already poor.

This is a frequent issue with the hostesses. I arrived at 6:50 for a 7:00 and was told the table had received their bill and it would be ready shortly. 40 minutes later and after maybe 8-10 other tables were seated, we were seated at 7:30 but it's the hostess attitude that is so condescending and dismissive. We had 5 people and our bill was over $1000 which is by no means the largest bill paid but the hostess (hispanic, larger physique) was a real *itch. Not sure why she has such an attitude as we were nothing but pleasant when we arrived, while we waited and when we left but it would be nice if she were more cognizant of the patrons and if the seating is 30 minutes late, she might provide an update or even apologize but she was terrible.

Food and presentation was spectacular as always. The only problem, which has been a problem every time I’ve dined at Nick and Sam’s, was the service. Sat down at 2:50, waiter didn’t greet us until 3:20. For 30 minutes we flagged multiple people down asking them to get our waiter. Ten minutes later at 3:30 we got another new waiter. At this point I didn’t even want to order a drink anymore and we went straight to order our food. In all, it took us 40 minutes to get to speak to a waiter. Ridiculous in my opinion, especially for an establishment such as this one. I had a very similar situation a few months back with a different group and they have said they will never go back.

No matter how nice the restaurant, going out on Thanksgiving Day can be tricky. Nick and Sam's nailed it by offering a 4 course pre-set menu (options on every course) with fabulous sides, as well as their fantastic "normal" menu. I had the Thanksgiving menu and my boyfriend and his daughter ordered off the "regular" menu. We were all delighted with our choices and had a great time. Service was super attentive, with a wait staff that can recite their extensive menu forwards and backwards!

Food was all great - shrimp tempura was incredible, as well as the filets and potatoes au gratin.
Service was horrible from the start, she was too busy with other tables and forgot about us. Took 45 minutes before we were finally able to order food from her. One of our togo items was thrown away rather than packed for us. Excluding food, it was a rather bad experience for this caliber of a restaurant.

The steaks and seafood are always great at N&S. The craft cocktails are limited and nothing special. Service is consistently very professional. While I know the cotton candy dessert is kind of a thing, it kind of takes away from the high end atmosphere.

I had asked for the bar but wasn’t told until we arrived that we could not have it. Not acceptable. I know the owners like taking over the area but it would have been nice to know ahead of time so we could have made other arrangements. We were disappointed.

Truly exceptional experience at Nick & Sam’s. The food was outstanding- we had filet and bone in sirloin. Both cooked perfectly. Appetizer of crab cake and burrata- wonderful!! The server was great! They went above and beyond to make this a special birthday for my husband! We will definitely go back!

It was my friends birthday and I called the restaurant and put it on my open table reservation. Nothing was done to celebrate her as the restaurant last night was a ZOO! We were next to an obnoxious business dinner table of about 20 people. Loud and obnoxious! Food was good - it’s expensive. We paid for the $30 birthday cake meanwhile celebrations were all around. Poor customer service.
