Tomahawk Rib Chop wasn’t that good. Server only came by to take the order, serve the food, and drop off the check. I had to flag him down for a refill on my Arnold Palmer. I love it how the server is super nice only when dropping off the check. Maybe the easiest $44 tip he made. Never going back.

Love the location a food but our waitstaff was horrible. Our waiter was super mad before coming to our table and she was not able to control her emotions while waiting on us all night. She would storm off mid question and even our best attempts to get her to come around did not help. When they brought the rolls, they were cheese rolls, and my wife asked if they had any bread without cheese. The waiter said "nope" and literally tossed the cheese roll across the table at her dish. It bounced off and onto the table. Later we asked another waiter and they did have some reg white bread in the back with butter.

Such horrible service for our very special occasion. I'm kicking myself that i did not go with another steak restaurant in town. We will not return.

The food was delicious and we had a great time celebrating my dad's 70th birthday! They even accommodated his diabetic need during his birthday dessert!

Nick & Stef's is a very odd restaurant, in a very odd location (surrounded by construction), and is just a complete mark missing attempt at a fine dining experience. Everything was mediocre at best and the expectation of service and quality during and from a meal for two that totaled just under $250 before tax and gratuity, was just plain poor. Our server, Ludwig, was mildly polite and mildly warm but was nowhere to be seen for 90 percent of the meal. It appeared he had our table and a four-top, and no other tables so it makes no sense why he wouldn't be providing top-notch service during such a slow night. The manager, George, ended up making our table side salad, rather than Ludwig but did not interact with us during the tableside presentation, didn't ask about allergies, didn't ask about preferences (anchovies or not), and just didn't seem to have a serving background? His body language did not communicate comfort and ease. You're making a salad tableside... It's not rocket science. The two stand out individuals that did earn their salary and then some were the two bussers/food expeditors that were quiet, but warm and friendly when addressed, did not leave our glasses empty and really seemed to have a handle on the meal and what was going on. I am disappointed that I didn't get their names to compliment them here. The manager, George, did follow up with me after the visit with a phone call, which was pleasant, and apologized profusely for the poor experience, but with so many stellar options overall elsewhere, there is just no reason to return and give them another shot in my book.

Great place for steak. Pricy but worth it. I find the décor too dark for my taste and they had the air conditioning blasting so it was freezing. I had a summer dress and I was very uncomfortable. It was a hot day but they should be a little more mindful of their customers. The food got cold very quickly as a result of the air being so cold. Other than that food was great and so was the service.

This place was sad and depressing. Didn’t feel like what they are trying to go for “ high-design” per their website. For the price its not worth it. The place was empty on a Saturday night. The outside seating didn’t feel cozy at all felt like they just put out some metal Whole Foods table out there (not comfortable) The server was very nice however it felt like she was not comfortable/knowledgeable. The BBQ shrimp for appetizer was reheated and you can totally tell it wasn’t freshly grilled which is shocking considering they are charging $26. The filet mignon, garden salad which was just mixed greens were all very simple, nothing special. Another weird thing the steak had one price on the menu but when they bill came it was different. So would not he retuning and would recommend you go elsewhere. This was really depressing dinner.

The food was outstanding and waiting to go back. I was there for dineLa the price was great for the food you get but I just didn't care for the dessert that came with the meal. I gave the service 3 stars do to the fact that are server wasn't on point but overall we will return and recommend it to other's as we already did

The service was excellent. Jon was one of the best waiters we ever had. His assistant, Andrew, was also very good. We had the LA special with all the side dishes. The dessert was fabulous. We have been at Nick & Stef's before, but this time everything was perfect and the price was very good.

Food,service, drinks, ambiance all excellent. Probably the best meal I have had. Steaks and sides perfectly cooked and delicious. Beautiful presentation of my Dark and Stormy;excellent taste too. Shrimp cocktail had beautiful plump tender shrimp with great cocktail sauce. Creamy delicious cheese cake. Very pricey, but the place to go for special occaisions or to make you and your party feel special. Waiter Kyle does a great job with the table side ceasar and provides excellent service from beginning to end.

My boyfriend and I wanted to come in for the dinela special. We saw that the dry aged ribeye was part of the three course meal and of course we wanted to take advantage to try it. Originally I had requested to sit in the booth. Unfortunately the host told us there were none available. However, she was able to find us a window table which was still nice. From the beginning Victor gave us excellent service and recommended us cocktails that went well with our entrees. Jorge who I believe is the manager was also superb to helping giving us an spectacular experience.

The main dining room is dark, feels sterile with no character and it is impossibly noisy. The food is generally reliable but I ordered my steak medium rare and it was raw in the middle.

Having previously dined at Patina, I had high hopes for Nick & Stef's as it is part of Patina Group.
The staff, ambiance and decor was lovely. However, the food was not. I went for lunch and because they were offering a DineLA menu, I decided to partake. I ordered the kale and goat cheese salad and the steak and fries. The salad was decent, but the steak was awful. It was tough and chewy, and I had to chew on my first bite for a solid 3 minutes. Our server was kind and apologetic, offering to fire up another steak (no thanks) or change my order to the fish option (I politely declined). My date and I both ordered the steak, so we left hungry and had to go to another restaurant. Disappointed.

We had an enjoyable anniversary dinner. I made a reservation earlier in the day. I asked for a seat with a view as it was our anniversary. They sat us at a very small table by a window which wasn't what I had in mind. Other than that, our steaks were perfect. The Mac and cheese was okay and the asparagus was delicious. The restaurant was hard to find due to construction, but the free parking made up for that. Overall a great anniversary dinner and we will definitely be back!
