They really know how to take care of their guests. Birthdays are awesome here. Oh, and that dry aged beef melts in your mouth. Thank you for the great service!

This was my 1st time eating here and I will definitely be back. Had the dry aged tomahawk rib eye and have to say it was one of the best steaks I've ever had. I've been to all the great place, Mastros, Flemings, Ruth Chris and Nick & Stefs was ranked right up there.

Very disappointing. My 16oz. NY steak was a total waste. I ate no more than 2oz. The smoky flavor us totally unexpected and something I would not have ordered. My wife ordered her lamb to be butterflied but it arrived unbutterflied and the meat was way to rare. It was sent back and we ended up eating at separate times. In my opinion, a total waste of $250. I most certainly would not recommend this restaurant

Good food. The service was excellent. The only negative was the very loud patron sitting behind us discussing very personal matters for all to hear. This of course is not the fault of the restaurant, but it did take away from the overall dining experience.

I only saw my server twice, when he took my order and when he brought Me my check, which was also the only time my water cup was refilled, he wasn’t even the one to bring out my food, also I was placed in a little room near the kitchen which was distracting and noisy. The level of carelessness was unbelievable. Not worth the money you’re spending to eat at this place. Will not be returning

First off the prices for the portions and quality of the meats are insane. I could cook a much more delicious filet at home for a fraction of the cost. There was NOTHING special about it. My boyfriend’s came out over cooked. They were kind and took it off the bill and gave him a free drink. This was our second time and I wouldn’t return. There’s definitely better out there and you don’t leave spending $300 for a simple meal.

Absolutely delicious dinner we had and the service was super from the greeting at the front desk To the attention by the maître d’ and the prompt and friendly server and efficient Bussman. We sat in a lovely upholstered and comfortable booth, And the food was really super: an absolutely delicious petite fillet and the side dishes are delectable. Had a great dirty martini to go with my steak and I was too full to have dessert but look forward to it next time.
Also free valet and just a short walk to catch a show at the Ahmanson at the music center. What a lovely experience. I can’t wait to go back!

Food was great but service wasn't. I'm not sure if we caught them on an off night but it was definitely sub par. However management did their best to compensate for the issues. I would go back again the food was phenomenal.

The service and food were both slow. We had reservations so we were seated right away at a table with a nice view. Unfortunately the service was a little slow and the food even slower to come out. We had to ask our waitress how much longer first the salad would be and then the main course. Food was very good once we got it.

The restaurant was nice, the food was good. Was it exceptional? I don't think so. I've been to fine dining Steakhouses all over the country and while it was all pleasant enough, I have been to better at a cost that is much more reasonable. This is just my personal opinion.

the ceasar salad was excellent, but I asked for more anchovies and they never came, and it took quite a while to get salt and pepper. Pork chop was good but over cooked.

Arrived on a Friday for an early pre-show dinner. The service was absolutely terrific. We especially appreciated the talk-through as our server built the table-side caesar, explaining as she went what each ingredient was and why the sequence was important.

We each enjoyed an expertly made Old Fashion made with Michter's small batch. Really great, and each glass contained the coolest monogrammed block of ice

For dinner I ordered the dry-aged rib eye medium rare and my wife ordered the dry-aged New York medium. We both agreed that these were the best steaks any restaurant had ever served us, by a huge margin. Sides are family style, so we selected the potatoes au gratin and the roasted mushrooms. Both were delicious (especially those potatoes...wow!).

We finished up with a shared dessert, the salted caramel white mousse, which was divine.

Honestly one of the most enjoyable dining-out experiences of my fairly long life. Somewhat expensive (about $300 for the two of us) and absolutely worth it.

When you think you deserve a really great steak dinner, this is where you get it.

Food is very good. I ate seafood, & especially liked the oysters - very fresh, very tasty. Took awhile to get them, however. The table-made Caesar Salad was fun to watch being made & quite good to eat. The main dish was Atlantic salmon - well prepared, perfectly cooked (which is crucial for seafood...a few seconds too long on the fire can quickly ruin it.)

Hi Nancy, I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed everything, thank you so much for your kind feedback. I'm glad you highlighted the seafood items. We wouldn't just have phenomenal steaks and let our seafood selections fall flat. I hope your kind words encourage those on pescatarian diets to join us!

Pretty pricey, but then justified. Dry-aged beef made the entire meal worth every penny. Had a glass of some Blanton’s which was decently priced and ordered the 28-day dry-aged Tomahawk for two and it brought this entire restaurant up to top 3 steakhouse for me. Service was as expected, nothing above and beyond.

Absurdly over priced $450 for a one steak dinner - with two simple sides, one smallish appetizer & a ok bottle of wine. $450! Are you kidding Me?

Nick and Stefs is very pricey and for this one should expect and receive superlative everything so.....the ambience especially in the big second room is kinda cold...not cozy enough. Our steaks were excellent but no selection of sauces were offered. the Caesar salad was uninspired. I asked for a simple baked potato but instead was brought a loaded bake potato. When i asked for an exchange, was told that the last simple baked potato had been eaten. The brocollini was too oily. No bread was offered. The bartender was excellent however.

My husband and I had dinner to celebrate his bday. First the cheese bread we got was soft and I kept asking for more, we ordered oysters which were beyond delicious and for dinner we shared a 48 oz Tomahawk steak......this steak was beyond delicious. The quality of this steak was impeccable and worth the money!!!! Great atmosphere, delicious appetizers and overall quality of the food we ate was amazing.

The side items and table side caeser we’re all very good, the streak was undercooked and warm at best. For the price I should have returned it but we had theatre tickets and didn’t really have the time. I would visit again, but would get a thinner cut of meat, but a filet.
