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.

I used to like this restaurant but this visit disappointed me. The risotto was very good but the steak we ordered were over cooked. My steak was like a rock! After I told the waiter, he answered that flat iron steak is supposed to be chewy. And he said he will tell the chef but nothing happened later. It was really a bad experience and I’m not sure if I want to go back again.

Started at the spacious bar with cocktails and was able to get seated at our leisure which is always nice. The service and food were great, hangar steak was fantastic. Can't beat the convenience to Penn Station either. Great steakhouse!

Nick & Stef's is a classic New York City steakhouse in the best sense of the term. The meat is outstanding, the preparation is precise, appetizers, sides, and desserts are excellent. The service is spot on from the podium to the bar to the table: when you need someone, they are there and they do the job just the way you want them to and they are pleasant about it.

Perfect place to have a great steak before going to Madison Square Garden. Best to book as soon as possible if you want to get a dinner time to your liking. Wait staff was cognizant we had a concert to go to and made sure we had everything in a timely fashion.

Went to a show at MSG. Great location. Classy restaurant. Real table clothes. Friendly professional staff. Calamari was good. Light and fluffy. Steak cooked to MR correctly. However $66 for a steak is over priced. $11 for fries is over priced. Overall we had a good time. Would not pay these prices unless I was going to MSG. Next time I will eat before I go.
