I had a very good experience the night I went to this restaurant. I know literally all restaurants can be up & down from night to night (I used to be a food expeditor and waiter) but I was fortunate to have been there on an up-night! I loved the mushroom dish that had an assortment of mushrooms instead of only button. The bottle of wine I had complimented my steak nicely which as perfect medium-rare and we had a very attentive server which was nice. I've been to 4 steakhouses in the city and this is #1. I still need to go to Peter Luger's and the Old Homestead (among others).

Pros: food & service

Cons: none

I go to a steakhouse about once a month. Decided to try Nick & Stef's due to its proximity to Penn Station. The petite filet & shrimp consisted of a slightly dry (ordered medium) filet and three shrimp. My dining companion ordered the crab cakes and seemed to enjoy them. The mac & cheese side and calamari app were good. The service was attentive. All in all a decent place, however, with a bill for two coming close to $200.00, coupled with so many other steak options in the city, you'd probably be more satisfied going somewhere else.

Pros: Ambience, Location, service

Cons: Didn't think the steak was very good

.

It's near Madison Square Garden so after viewing a show there I recommend going here especially if you're on a date. The setting is very intimate. They are open very late and the steaks they cook are very delicious - also highly recommended. Service is very fast especially with how gourmet the food is.

I am a frequent visitor of steak houses, and I have dined to most of them in the city. My friend recommended it, so I came in with few friends for the R.E.M concert. We tried the seafood platter for the table and that was the best I?ve tasted in a long time. I tried the cowboy steak and that was the most tender cowboy steak have ever eaten. Even though we were short on time they managed to get us out on time after a very enjoyable experience. This Steakhouse is a top 10 on my book, and I will recommend it.

I ate here before the Tom Petty concert and was pleased with my whole experience. My Ribeye steak was absoltely enormous and filled with flavor. My wife had the Mixed seafood entree and told me it was fresh and tasty. The service was very good even though this restaurant was really busy at the time of our visit...We will return

I am not joking, I'd rather have eaten at Burger King. Service was decent except the food was horrible. The filet mignon has no taste and the consistency of a rubber band. The filet was flat (compared to a good steak house such as Del Friscos or Harry) My wife and I were so hungry that we had to eat was was brought to the table. The creamed Spinach was dry and stale. The bread offering was bland and ordinary.

This steak house is not among the elite in Manhattan, but charges equivalent prices. We complained to our waiter, who immediately alerted the manager, about the poor quality of the steak, and she insisted on bringing us another, which we declined. The manager reduced our tab by the price of the steak (which was very nice.)

We will never go back to Nick & Stef's.

The majority of people who gave this restaurant an EXCELLENT review also gave "Excellent reviews" to all of the establishments that are part of RESTAURANT ASSOCIATES...Just look at the Profiles of the reviewers and look at the other restaurants they have reviewed...Its all a scam...I have eaten at the majority of these restaurants and please....How good can they be if they are willing to take $50 off your check for your birthday? Sub-Par at food at best at all of these establishments...What a joke.

Adjacent to Madison Square Garden, Nick & Stef's is the perfect place for pre- or post-game parties, special events, or just a great dinner! The sleek and contemporary steakhouse features amazing steaks and a killer swordfish. The bar is sophisticated and the dining area is comfotable and ultra-contemporary. The bar is open from restaurant opening to closing and on event nights, they remain open as long as business dictates.

Cons: None!

I live just a few blocks from Nic and Stef's so I make it a point to go there at least once a week. I can't get enough of their steaks!! They are always cooked to perfection! When I'm not in the mood for steak, I know I can always get the fresh seafood.

this place has great scotch/whisky selection, perfect for the upcoming colder months. we knocked back a few rounds and then had dinner. the sirloin was cooked to perfection-- most other restaurants can't get "medium" right to save their lives. they also have a wider selection of sides than most other steakhouses. everyone could use little mac & cheese in their life, am i right? my mouth waters just thinking about it, i might go there again tonight!

Pros: Great ambiance, nice rich colors that seem warm and inviting during sunset

We don't get to NYC that often so going to an unknown restaurant (to us) meant that price was not a consequence. This restaurant was pricey but once in a blue moon was worth it. The service was impecable; the food was outstanding; the speciality 20oz. T-bone was the best I've had done to perfection. One thing we learned was, if possible get an early (5 pm) seating as by 6:15 pm the place is jammed and service could be compromised. For an excellent restaurant close to the MSG venue we will certainly return.

Went to N&S's last night for dinner. The service was HORRIBLE. The table who got there 20 minutes before us had their food before we even had our bread. I had to ask for water 3 times, and our butter that fell on the floor was never replaced despite numerous requests. The food was BLECH. The filet minon was average, and the chicken I had, actually was so dry my throat was scratchy after the meal. For spending $150, McDonalds' would have been a cheaper and better choice! Do not recommend!

I love going to nick and stefs before a game or concert. They offer a great selection of food from spectacular steaks to seafood. They also have a great selection of starters. One of my favorite starters are the crab cakes they are fantastic. They have a nice bar set-up for drinks before an event and one of the best signatue drinks i've tasted in many places. They also have an entrance to the garden when you finish your meal. The service is unbelievable and although the uniforms are not very appealing to their atmosphere hopefully this review will open some eyes in thier ownership. I LOVE NICK AND STEF"S. YOU GUYS ROCK

Nick and Stef's was a great time. The staff was very proffesional and kind. The food was outstanding. I would reccomend this to anyone looking for a great meal in New York City. The wait staff knows the menu like the back of thier hand and is very helpful. I went a couple of times and fully intend on going back whenever I am around MSG. Tell a friend... Nick and Stef's is the place to be.

From the street you could miss it walking by the front door. I've gone to there a few times, the staff is great, not your typical stuffy steakhouse crew-very friendly and professional. By the second visit I was hooked, they remembered us and went all out to make the night a great experience. One time I went on a "game night"-tons of people! But, since they know me, when I'm going to MSG I've got the hookup, they have a private entrance-no lines! The other times I've gone it's romantic date heaven, you can walk in get a booth by the windows, be treated like a VIP in a not-crowded place, with great food and service. Nick & Stef's is one of the only places worthy of going in the area, so if you happen to be by Madison Square Garden or Herald's Square check it out!

Cons: Packed pre-events

.

...that a restaurant in this neighborhood could deliver such a great experience! The steaks are delicious and so are the sides. We shared a crabcake appetizer which was amazing (all crab!) Other things people ordered were great too-- shrimp scampi, a venison special and the desserts. The service is professional but not stuffy like other steakhouses. Same goes for the atmosphere, really refreshing. But isn't it all about food really? The food here is excellent, so I'm definitely going back for more!

being a carnivore & restaurant fan, and having lived in NY all my life, I have tried EVERY steakhouse. This is, by far, the worst "steakhouse" and I use the term loosely(Idon't know what they eat in LA, but if it's this, I will never go!). Supermarket meat, frozen hash brown brick, no taste spinich, watery bernaise, deserts to die FROM, slow & clueless serviceand everything cold and way overpriced! THINK Lugars, Ruth's, Mortons, (you can even do better at Outback)

Because the service is ABOMINABLE and you'll need to have someone you can talk to to kill the time between the waiter making appearances. Fortunately, my colleague and I were able to do so and therefore were able to enjoy our meal. The food is a good average - nothing particularly out of the ordinary for what I'd expect for a steakhouse of this type in the city. The wine list is decent, but grossly overpriced. Thank goodness for the $50 birthday certificate! I'd recommend it and go back, but ONLY with the $50 coupon and on an expense account, like I did this time.

After visiting most of the top steakhouses in NYC, this was by far the worst dining experience. We waited 15 minutes for a waiter to come to our table and introduce themselves. The filet mignon was overcooked and the waiter argued that it was fine. My wife's seafood combo was so salty that she couldn't eat it. I sent an e-mail to the manager over 2 weeks ago and no one has contacted me to try to fix it. If you are in the neighborhood and need a good steakhouse...try Keens!!!

I went to Nick & Stefs this past Saturday night with my girlfriend, we got the filet mignon, lobster, and creamed spinach. The food was excellent and cooked perfectly, the service was great as well as having a top notch waiter who was knowledgeable and friendly as well!

I would definitely return to Nick & Stefs, especially since it is in a neighborhood so void of good restaurants! this one is a keeper!

I usually don't write my opinions on websites, but some of these comments are way off base. The food in this restaurant is average at best. It is way overpriced and the portions are small. It seems that the only people who loved their meals were the ones who got $50 or $100 off their check.
It is convenient to MSG and that was the only plus. None of the eight people that dined there were impressed. In fact it was a very forgetful meal on a great night. If you're in the area, try Keen's - which is a significantly better place.

I am not a steak connoisseur, but I know what I like, and my experience at Nick and Stef's left me satisfied. My friend and I both had the filet mignon, which was simply outstanding. What's more, the mixed greens that came with the steak were remarkable and very unique. The wine was ridiculously expensive (The house cabernet was $12 per glass). The service seemed a touch off, but very courteous. The decor is very pleasant and there is a lot of elbow room, even though it didn't seem that way in the picture. The price tag was high even with the dine out certificate, but I expected nothing less from a good steakhouse.

We probably would have never gone to Nick and Stefs had we not had the $30 off coupon. It was a decent steak, and definitely worth it with the coupon. Other than that though, it was scorching hot inside the restaurant, and when we asked them to turn down the heat, they said that the Garden controls their temp, so they couldn't. Instead, they opened a door - in the middle of January!! I know it wasn't their fault, but it still didn't make for the most pleasurable dining experience. Overall, it was good, but I probably wouldn't go back.

For the good-restaurant-starved area around Penn Station, Nick and Stef's is a welcome treat. I went on a Saturday night, pre-theater (and used the "famous" $50 gift certificate, which you can't beat!) and we had a fabulous meal. The salmon was delicious and mashed potatoes are some of the best I've ever had. My boyfriend, a huge steak fan, loved his meal too. The service was wonderful and even at such an early hour there was enough of a crowd that we didn't feel like we were at the "early bird special" and it added to the warm atmosphere. The decor is very classy and cozy. The only complaint I have is that the tables for 2 along the booth are very close together so it wasn't as romantic a dinner as we wanted but all in all, we were in our own world, more like in heaven. :)

This place surprised me. For somewhere connected to Penn Station and MSG it wasn't too crowded and even if it was filled with people (which it wasn't) there was plenty of room to be seated comfortably. The wine list was ridiculously long and just as ridiculously priced. However the food was great, love that steak!

this place is worth a visit- particularly if you are catching a show at MSG. WITH it- it is unbeatable- the food is delicious and the service is perfection. The ribeye was cooked perfectly and the cheese mashed potatoes are fabulous. They let us use two $50 dine outs and were super accomodating the whole time- I will be going back as long as the dine outs last. The only downer is the decor makes you remember you are attached to Penn Station- feels like a seedy hotel restaurant..

I am a huge fan of steak so after reading some of the reviews here i decided to check this place out (the location was what kept me from going there in the first place). first, i was never served any of the corn bread everyone speaks so highly of and it wasnt on the menu - so that was odd. our waitress was phenominal and the food was pretty good - i actually like angelo and maxies steaks and creamed spinach better - but it was fun to share the porterhouse for 2. our meal was enjoyable none the less and we still rolled ourselves home. by the way desert is to die for - avoid the creme brulee sampler because its shockingly small.

I love a steakhouse like everyone else, yet this place has the best cornbread OF MY LIFE, and of my friend's lives. We fight over it. It doesn't even need butter. And the steaks, the sides, all those potatoes, it's all a foodie's heaven. Can't wait to go back. Thanks!

This is the best steakhouse in NYC and I have tried virtually all of them (Luger's, Smith & Wollensky's, etc.). The steaks are out of this world. I prefer their filet or ribeye and not the strip which they say is the house specialty. You have to try the creamed spinach as it is probably the best side dish in all of New York. I have been here at least a half dozen times and will be back even more than that inthe future. I have not eaten there when an event was going on at Madison Square Garden. I imagine that it would be more hectic and rushed than normally. Try it when there is not an event there and you will like it for sure.

Went there bc of the $50 dine out ny coupon - the porterhouse is very yummy, the ny stripe is decent. had the portobellos, don't know why the other raters on citysearch raved about them so much. overall everything was around a 7 but I would only go back if I had another coupon.

Went here with the Dine Out NY certificate which took off $50. Well worth it. Steak was good, not the best I've had. The mashed potatoes with bacon were delish! Also had sweet potato fries, asparagus and portobello mushrooms...all very tasty. The service is good. Nice atmosphere, nothing to fancy. Overall, a good steak experience. Left very satisifed and full.

Went with a few friends with gift certificates. The steak was great...not the best in the city, but certainly well worth it. The sides are what blew us away though. The portobello dish was to die for! You must order it as a side. Nice wine selection as well. Everyone was pleased.

Pros: Gift Certificates, Outiside dining

Cons: Expensive, Cigar smell

Went with a gift certificate, which knocked $100 off the bill- definitely made it worth it. Steaks were good; nothing great.

Unfortunately this was a last minute decision as we had tickets for a concert at MSG. Unfortunately this restaurant did not meet our expections with respect to the food. My companions meal was dry and my meal was a little bland. The only thing I truly enjoyed was my glazed carrots. Also, a little over priced.

Pros: Not crowded, clean, comfortable

Went to Nick & Stef's since I heard that it was led by a famed Los Angeles chef named Joachim Splichtal. Heck, this fellow knows hardly anything about steaks! His original restaurant in L.A. was great, but the food here was disappointing, atmosphere was even worse - a depressing experience, sorry!
