Company Execs took a new hire there for a Welcome lunch. Excellent service and food. The short-rib plate is the best!!!
Perfect oysters and steak !
We went to celebrate a friend’s birthday. The service and food were AMAZING! Thank you!
The food was good but I was expecting better, the dry aged steaks were unique but it tasted like something I could make at home. The next day I made a New York strip at home and it turned out better. I enjoyed Flemmings more. It was also very dark in the restaurant I could barely see my food.
It was perfect! It was the perfect setting, the food was great! Our server was personable and made sure we were taken care of. We had a great time. We’ll definitely be coming back!
I called the restaurant in advance to ask a dessert be brought to the table for my partner's birthday and I said I would pay for it, I wasn't expecting a freebie. No problem, the man said. It never came. We ordered a dry aged rib eye medium rare. It came rare, had no flavor, was tough, full of gristle and fat, and no higher caliber than Sizzler and I hope I'm not demeaning Sizzler. The recommended sauce was watery and flavorless. The broccolini was too al dente... nearly raw. In a city full of Brussels sprouts, this was the worst version I've had. Mushrooms were okay. The waiter came once after the runner brought the food and before we even had a bite to ask how everything was. We hadn't tasted it yet and we never saw him again until the plates were cleared. Otherwise, I would have complained about the quality of food. Our reservations were at 2 p.m. and the restaurant wasn't crowded. Honestly, this place just doesn't care. It's expensive, they are doing their job, but they just don't care about what's on the menu or the quality of their cooking or ingredients or their service. It was so disappointing and they can be assured I will never be back.
Food and service were amazing! It was little too noisy that we could not really talk quietly. It was as if there was a big conference meeting because of the noise. Other than that, the dry aged rib eye was just simply the best in medium well cooked.
Good place, steak was bland not worth it for the price was only edible because of the sauce I got everything was else was amazing and tasteful
The best steakhouse in DTLA with in-house dry-aging room.
Great service, great food, been here before and ill be back again, 100% satisfied their dry aged steaks are the best in town hands down!!
Great food and a pleasant ambiance. The A La Carte Model leaves the meal feeling bleak though, I would want combinations sugested by the Chef as well as individual items.
great vibe, good food. good place to go if you are looking for a good steak without worrying about cost. good portions for the cost also.
An awesome food, server and the place. I will recommend this place to my family and friends
Enjoyed the food. Service was very good. Good place to go after work.
Wonderful server, great food and drinks
This was our first visit to Nick and Stef 's and it will be our last. After we were seated it took over 10 minutes for the server to come over and great us. He immediately started to tell us about the steaks. Had he read the information which was sent to the restaurant from my open table profile he would have seen that I had some food allergies and do not eat meat or poultry. We placed our order for Caesar salad, Branzino and the long beans. We asked for as little oil and butter as possible and for the salad to be lightly dressed. He said that as the salad is prepared table side that is not a problem. After a further lengthy wait the server came to our table to prepare the Caesar. We reminded him about dressing it lightly, as we watched him putting large amounts of stuff in the mixing bowl. When we received the salads he rushed away. The salads were very heavily dressed despite our requests and we discovered that he had not given us any croutons or anchovy. We tried to way lay him to no avail and finally asked another person about the croutons. Due to the slow service we did not have enough time to get the salad remade. We were told that the anchovies were in the dressing even though we had overheard other tables being asked whether they wanted anchovies or not. We were brought croutons in a small bowl. We were offered a second popover. I said no but my husband asked for one but it never arrived, and shortly after saying he wanted one his side plate was removed while mine was left on
While waiting for our entrée a different server tried to deliver someone else's food to us twice. When we received our entrees the fish was well prepared but the beans were extremely greasy. The server never came to check on us, and we had to ask a manager for the check. Although they offer shuttle bus service to the Music Center, it only ran at 7:05 and 7:30. On the way back it took two calls to the restaurant and a 20 minute wait for the shuttle to arrive.
Our corkage was comped by our wonderful waiter, which was good, but we understood from BYOB website that there was no corkage fee, so the "waiver" was a bit of a surprise. (We took a quick glance at the wine menu and didn't see a corkage fee listed, so this is something that might need to be cleared up). It wasn't Nick & Stef's fault, but there was a table nearby with an amazingly loud laugher. So, it was a bit more "energetic" than we'd hoped, but still just fine. Our waiter was awesome and the food was great.
Service was excellent! Busboys were really attentive.
when going to the Music Center or Disney Hall, add Nick & Stef's. it is worth
the 3 blocks walk.
Overall experience was good. We were seated promptly. Requested a booth and were moved when one became available (within 10 min of being seated). Ordered table side ceaser salad which took almost 45 min to come out. Our steaks took another 30 min once appy plates were cleared. My steak was undercooked. They took it back and cooked it slightly more after acknowledging that it was in fact under cooked. No compensation for the mistake or the time it took for the food to come out. Service, while very efficient, was extremely cold.
Regardless, we would return because the food was very tasty.
Night at the L.A. Opera! Traffic was terrible, so we called the restaurant to let them know we would be 15 minutes late. The hostess was very accommodating and even asked if we were seeing a performance to make sure we would be able to dine on time. Our waiter Ludwig was very attentive and made the evening very enjoyable. It was our first time there and he answered all of our questions. Ludwig was very patient and humorous, too! The food was delicious and so were the cadillac margaritas. We started with the wedge and table side Caesar salads and then shared an aged New York steak and 2 sides. Ludwig asked if we'd like the steak to be sliced to make it easier for sharing, so it was nicely presented on a wooden plank. So tasty! We also loved that our plates were heated. The scalloped potatoes were fantastic! FYI - To use the complementary valet, you must enter the parking garage. There is also a free shuttle that you can take from the restaurant to the Dorothy Chandler Pavillion, which worked out well because we were seeing Candide. The shuttle departed at 7:05pm. It was so nice not having to battle traffic in the parking garage at the music center. Once the performance was over, we hopped on the shuttle and picked up our car back at the restaurant valet. Wonderful evening!
The service was good as the staff constantly came by to ensure we had our drinks filled.
The food started off great with Nick’s seafood platter however the Cesar salad had lettuce that did not appear so fresh. The salmon was over cooked and dry.
I have been here twice before and did not experience this, perhaps it was just this one time.
Do not order the salmon sandwich. Tasteless and horribly overpriced.
4-5 stars on every other element, sitting outside anyway. It would be loud inside if full. Service was good, and the outdoor patio was excellent. I think if I had ordered a different sandwich it would have been a better lunch. Or if I had ordered a steak. Hopefully they do that better.
Wow! I've been to many many steakhouses in the US and throughout the world including Peter Luger's, Maestro's, Ruth's Chris, Wolfang's etc. and I must say, the steak here is excellent and that's not the aged steak mind you, imagine if we had that...forget about it. The caramelized Brussels sprouts is to die for and the Caesars salad...OMG! What more can I say.
Great for small to big birthdays
We had a good time. It was nice and food was great.
Food was very good. Scallops appetizer was excellent, cooked to perfection and with pistachio crumble that was fresh and different. Steaks were cooked to perfection. Ambiance is a bit more stiff than expected, reminiscent of a business conference room in an extensive hotel. Resturant also needs better signage. Uber drive had to circle twice to make sure we were in the right place, which is a rather deserted area in, I presume, financial type district of LA.
Perfect place for a wonderful pre-show meal. Service was prompt and friendly, atmosphere was inviting, and food was superb. We’ll be back for sure.
Super average restaurant experience. The kale/squash salad was over dressed and WAY too salty. The salmon was fine. My friend had a Caesar that was also over dressed. I won’t be going back soon.
Terrible food and service
