Always good food and service! Dining room is pretty loud, so not the place if you’re planning lots of conversation. This is one of the nicest dining rooms in Dallas.

Excessive wait times, regardless of RSVP, and terribly loud dining area, which required one to yell at guests at your own table in order to be heard. The value simply isn't there if you're looking for a fine dining experience.

The wine list is outstanding as are the beef options. I enjoyed one of the Wagyu ribeyes that was cooked to perfection by the kitchen. The complimentary caviar flatbread service prior to dinner set the table for an excellent meal. The service throughout the meal could not have been any better. We were in Dallas for a concert and will definitely make a stop at Nick & Sam's every time we are in town.

The best steak house in Dallas. It is an experience but it is a full experience from the service to the food. We go for our anniversary every year and regardless of the way a patron is dressed or looks like, everyone is treated extremely well.

Fun times. Great food. Went for birthday party, loved the cotton candy. Started with octopus and dumplings. Both very good. Wedge was a winner, how can iceburg taste so good. Fish of the day was Sea Bass Tapenad, award winning. Ribeye was tasty. Vibe was great. Can’t wait to return to Dallas to enjoy again.

I had my 24th birthday dinner here & made a reservation for 18. They said they would accommodate my larger sized party since it was a weekday (which I greatly appreciated). However, I was really upset at the fact that my whole party was there 15 minutes prior to my reservation and my table wasn’t finished setting up until an hour AFTER my planned reservation time.... I thought the point of a reservation was so you can have a table ready to go prior to you arrival? Besides that everything was great! A gentleman sent over champagne and appetizers to our table as a gift. Great atmosphere.

I have never been to Nick & Sam's before but I've always heard that the food was delicious. However, I was a bit skeptical after hearing from friends and coworkers about how the service has gone slightly downhill. I was delightfully surprised regarding the service. I had two servers one was named Alan and the other one was John ( I can't remember if it really was John). They were both attentive and very helpful.

The food was delicious! We ordered crab cakes for the appetizer. I typically find crab cakes to be a hit or miss but these were delicious! My boyfriend order the new york steak with truffle butter and I got the ahi tuna. The food was phenomenal. We also got a side of the duc duc mac to share and it was incredible. I definitely will be coming back soon!

This place was incredible, all of the dishes are made for sharing and they are more than enough for two people. The servers were AMAZING and they gave us a free caviar plate for it being our first visit. Would definitely go back, but with a more empty stomach!

Overall, my experience was a very special one. An experience I don’t get to have very often, so I considered it once in a lifetime. I felt very special on my birthday with the outstanding service from my server and the food was quite amazing. The prices are a bit high for some of the dishes, but the flavor of everything did not disappoint. My steak was cooked perfectly, medium rare. I felt pampered for my birthday with the complimentary champagne and caviar. My server was very attentive to what I wanted and made sure the whole table, my family, was taken care of. The one downside of my experience was the ambiance and noise level. We were sat in a more “private” quiet area, which was definitely more quiet than the main dining room, however, there was a boisterous table two tables away that was quite deafening. It was quite a large party of what looked like young, somewhat profession men and women. The conversation throughout the night was inappropriate and loud. I could hear every word of this young man’s conversation, which detailed his romantic relationships and one night stands. It was as if he had a megaphone the entire night, projecting voice throughout the room so everyone could hear. It was very inappropriate and made my experience, as well as my families’ not as fulfilling as I wanted it to be. We did mention it to our server who apologized for it. But that table for the rest of the night was very loud, which was followed by ordering lots of bottles of wines, vaping/electronic smoking which I observed, even caused the table in between them and ours to leave early and take their dessert home rather than eat it there.

The noise was absolutely unbearable. Conversation at the table could not be had. They call it "energetic" noise; I call it irritating. The food is extremely (!!!) expensive, but very good. It's a good place to go once, but not in my book of fine dining due to the extreme noise. Also, the restaurant is so dark that the waiters have to carry flashlights. The near darkness is a bit scary and unnecessary. We couldn't even see our menus. No wonder they spend 10 minutes doing a song & dance about the menu.

Nice dinner before show. As a result, it was pretty quiet. Service was great. Staff and Management checked in appropriately to make sure all was well. Valet attendant even took time to let me know he saw a nail in my tire. Filet and Tuna were both superb. Only opportunity was inside lighting. It was darker than we prefer, but since all servers used flashlights in their operation, it must be part of the show...

I will start out by saying this is the 2nd review I have ever written for a restaurant. My first was prompted by a night at Nick and Sam's that was horrific (but N&S's has more than made it right). From the second we walked in the restaurant, we were greeted by name. Not something to expect when the place is usually packed from open to close, so it was a nice touch. We were seated promptly in a quiet corner of the restaurant and the first round of drinks showed up very soon after. My wife ordered the sushi platter and the sushi chef knocked it out of the park. We've been lucky enough to eat at some of the best sushi spots on the planet and I'd put this up there with all of them. Definitely give it a shot if you're up in the air about an appetizer. Also ordered a couple other apps and none disappointed. The best was probably the broccoli. Steaks showed up prepared perfectly and on time. We ordered the carrot cake to go as an end to a perfect evening. Can't go wrong with this place for a low key weekday dinner or a special night on the town. 5 Stars.

We had such an incredible meal at Nick & Sam's. Everything was top notch from the moment we walked in the door until we stepped back out. The ambiance was super cool - I was worried from the pictures it would be a bit dated but it felt very fresh and modern once inside. The crowd was eclectic and lively but we still managed to have a very romantic dinner tucked away in a booth. The waitstaff was amazing and were the perfect level of attentive without being bothersome. We got engaged there and they brought us champagne and were so congratulatory. We can't wait to return when we're back in Dallas!

Went here for a birthday party for my daughter. The experience, service and food is absolutely outstanding! The birthday cake for celebration is like none other and they brought us complimentary champagne for a toast as well, which was very nice. If you are on a budget, I would not recommend as it is very pricey, but you get what you pay for and they deliver! On another note, if you have someone hard of hearing, the background and music is quite loud, so they would not be comfortable if there is going to be a lot of conversation.
