Nick & Stef’s, “We continually strive to offer exceptional cuisine...”, not true. So disappointing...As a VIP Open Table user I frequently write reviews of the exceptional, good, not so good and bad restaurant experiences. We were attending the Pink concert at MSG and as N & S’s is literally inside MSG, and been in business for a longtime, I assumed, mistake, the food quality, presentation, atmosphere and service would be commensurate with the prices, not so. I ordered the tuna tartare and roasted chicken. So very far from, “exceptional cuisine”. I’ll leave it at that. Server was attentive. Restaurant atmosphere needs a facelift.

The service and atmosphere were good,and the food was good,but nothing special.
In my opinion,for the price it was a bit disappointing.

Had a business dinner for 5. The wine was good, sides were good but the main dishes: steaks were underwhelming to say it nicely. When you pay more than $60 for a bone-in Ribeye, you expect a great steak. Steak was thin (about 1/4 of inch) and very fatty. Colleagues mentioned their steak (dry aged) was not tasty or memorable either. Other than that, service was very good. When mistake was made with the side dishes it was quickly corrected without extra charge.

I have been here a few times and although convenient when attending a concert at garden (they have entrance you can use straight into MSG from restaurant), my Wedge Salad was awful: 1/2 of iceberg itself was inedible (yellow and bitter), tiny amount of blue cheese crumbles and bacon, over ripe tomatoe.

Asked waitress to split check 3 ways and they put entire amount on my card AND charged my friends’ each their amount.

Overpriced for quality of food.

Will not bother giving them another try

Service was slow. We were only 2 people and waitress also had a large table of 12 people. We were of little interest to her.

Ribeye steak for $60+ was horrible. A fatty piece of beef that might have been called “Prime” but I don’t see how that was true.

I will say the oysters were SPECTACULAR!!!

Lovely steak house with delicious food located right next to MSG. Staff was helpful and accommodating when our group arrived at times before and after scheduled reservation. Accommodating and comfortable for children. Food is a bit pricey, but food quality and service were worth the expense.

I totally love this place!!! First time there took a friend of Bill W for her birthday and the Billy Joel show after...great experience right from when the door is opened for you. Seat was in a high traffic area and seated in 10 minutes from arrival not too bad since place was mobbed but I thought the noise was a little loud but it drained out when we seated. Started with the freshest blue points and nice big thick slab of bacon cooked and delivered at perfect time. Ordered everything right at beginning because we had concert to go to but the waiter was a PRO. He timed it all perfect and dinner flowed perfectly. Flirts with the best wild mushrooms I ever had and steaks cooked perfectly. One of the best experiences I’ve had and when done private entrance into MSG...perfect!!! Hit seats and exact time of arrival here comes the “The Entertainer” with his normal opener Miami. Another awesome night but it all started with a great experience and food at Nick and Stef’s.

We dined on a night that Madison Square Garden was dark and loved it. Great attention from staff, food was outstanding, noise level low even when a business party of 20 arrived. Noise level and comfort are completely different on a night when there is a sports event or concert - reservations in advance will be required for those nights.

Coming in from out of town for a show at MSG. Couldn't get a closer restaurant. Very convenient to MSG. Food was very good. Service was outstanding. Only complaint was the tables were almost stacked on top of one another. Would highly recommend if you have an event at the garden and want a good meal, and are not worried about the cost.

We got a last-minute res on the night of a Rangers game. Restaurant was packed but hostesses managed seating very well, kitchen stayed on top of orders, staff were excellent in managing seated customers and turning over tables without feeling rushed. Noise level was very high but restaurant has wisely included a number of abatement and mitigation features in the design of the space which helps greatly. Once the fans depart it is a great dining experience for non-fans. Will return.
