We had an excellent meal. The drinks and the steaks were delicious. The server was very sensitive to pacing the meal, because we were going to a game at Madison Square Garden. Maître d’ was very much on site, making sure everyone was happy. I will return anytime I can.

solid "fast food" Steakhouse near Penn Plaza. Good for lunch meetings. Excellent Lobster Bisque and salads. Filets are pretty good too.

Had reservations and seated right away. Took about 10 minutes for someone to acknowledge us at the table, then another 15 minutes to get a glass of water then another 15 to take our order. Food was good and very expensive

Ate here prior to attending the Westminster dog show. The restaurant was packed but we never felt rushed. Food was excellent. Opened with oysters which were perfect and French onion soup which was delicious. Two of us had steaks, perfectly cooked and tender. The salmon and the short ribs were wonderful. Doughnut dessert was great and portion was enough to share for two. Great wine selections. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly, and super attentive. Added bonus-no need to go outside after the meal to get to the Garden, take the shortcut stairway!

We had a delicious meal before attending an event at MSG. The waiter’s performance was disappointing. He was not as attentive as we thought he should have been.

Only real problem was getting our table at the reserved time 6:45. Took about 20 minutes which was a bit difficult as one person had to leave at 7:20.

Main reason I go here occasionally is the location- right next to MSG. Fun pre-game environment (before Rangers games for me.)

Food is ok but there are other great steakhouse choices in midtown if that’s your primary need...

This is always an enjoyable restaurant. The Restaurant Week menu was a bit limited so burgers ruled the day and satisfied the palate.

Ok, as I usually do when I review something, I get a little lengthy but I like to know where I am going and what to expect so why not do the same when reviewing.
Nick and Stefs is a nice restaurant, business casual, I saw sports coats and ties and then I saw Baseball hats ???? Interesting. It is NOT a sports bar and the hats and tee shirts should be left out but hey what do I know ? The establishment is a little dated. The service and food NOT ! Will was our waiter and did not steer us wrong on anything. We started and (YOU MUST) order the hickory-maple bacon as an app. MY GOD ! I ordered the Tomato/Mozz salad and probably should have passed. Being from Jersey and spoiled, you are not getting a Jersey Tomato in JANUARY! Bland but edible. Main course: Wife- surf and turf. Again being from the Jersey shore and spoiled she was hesitant, but NOT DISAPPOINTED ! The filet was like butter and the lobster delightful. I went with the 18oz bone in strip. OH MY ! Wonderful choice, as I am a steak connoisseur, this was cooked perfectly and seasoned better. We split the mashed and they were mashed, can't screw up mashed. Will recommended the cinnamon sugar donuts as a dessert.........Bam ! another home run. Light and delicious! Overall a 8.5/10 for the meal!
Drawbacks: Tends to be over-crowded and bit loud, we were seated as a deuce but next to another almost sharing the table and right next to another 4 seated the same. If you are looking for quiet and quaint move on.
Back to Will, Highly recommend requesting him as a server. Not pushy, tentative, with a great personality.
Total bill with tip and drinks around $250.00, but depends on if you want apps and dessert and drinks..........
Narrowed down the choices for this date to Nick and Stefs and Butcher and Banker, went with N/S and was not disappointed. Give it a try and you'll see why !

We had a very quiet corner table. We had the restaurant week menu. We had the short ribs risotto as an appetizer ,lobster bisque and salad. They were all delicious. We all ordered the salmon. It was good but it was a small portion. I had branzini there during the summer restaurant week and it was a very generous portion. Cheesecake and gelato for dessert. It was $5 on the restaurant week menu. A very small piece of cheesecake. Better off with the scoop of gelato if you are ordering off that menu. Service was lovely.
