Very crowded. Jammed way too many tables in small area. For the prices they charge, could have removed a few tables and given people breathing room. Close to a venue we went to and convenient. Not sure I’d go back given other choices.

Great service, great food. However, The tables were very close together which increased the noise quite a bit. Prices were high for the food and drinks. But pretty much on point with other steak houses in the area. Overall, a Very nice dining experience.

We had an amazing experience at Nick and Stefs. One of the members in our party forgot their vax card but the hostess and general manager made extraordinary accommodations to move our reservation to a later time so we could still have our meal together even thought the restaurant was very busy. The evening was a special occasion so I can not thank the restaurant team enough. Service was outstanding, the food delicious. An amazing evening and we will be back for sure.

Was very excited to try out this restaurant on a girls night out. Immediately upon sitting down the waiter spilled an ENTIRE glass of water all over my friend. Apologized one time and nothing was done about it. No manager came over to speak to us. He didn’t offer to buy us our first round of drinks or take anything off the check. Good was mediocre at beast. Dessert was absolutely stale. Overall just not a good experience especially for how expensive it was. Would not recommend.

My companion and I have dined frequently and plentifully. This experience by far was one of our greatest. The food was delicious, the service was superb, and the location was spot on. Although a bit pricey, we enjoy fine dining and the food was worth it. The service made our visit even more worthwhile. We will definitely go back.

Kathy, our hostess was outstanding with info for the night!
We had not been back to your restaurant since March of 2020 since Covid shut down the city!! Steve was our waiter and he was great telling us about specials and other available amenities. Overall, it was the best experience coming back to MSG for a NYR game that turned out to be spectacular game winning in the end!!
We have missed you NYC and will be back again soon!!

Nick & Stef's was a fantastic place to eat just before a Rangers game. Visiting my daughter, traveling from Las Vegas, we were looking for a memorable place for dinner, and this was the one! Ribeye was to die for, cooked to perfection. Clams were fresh and served cold, albeit a tad small, but that's a personal preference. Calamari, lightly fried, hot, and flavorful! Service was great, Steven was a seasoned pro and a full complement of bus people rounded out the staff. Topped it off with mango sorbet and an apertif. Big bonus is we just go through a secret door near the entrance and viola! we're in MSG and heading for our seats to the game.

We had dinner before the show at MSG. Service was very good. Filet was good, not great. Croutons in salad were stale, fries cold (had to send back) bread and butter both cold. Manager came over to apologize offered a round of drinks but when the bill came, no comp’d drinks. Overall disappointed and wouldn’t recommend.
