I ordered the ribeye medium rare....it came out hard as a rock...so tough. it had no flavor. I asked for crab cake....it came out on top of my steak, shredded. it was cold and not a good accompaniment... More

I have eaten and had drinks at Nick & Stefs many times. Unfortunately, my last few visits have been very disappointing. The steaks are good, but the other food is average and overpriced. The service has gotten bad. As an aside, the dining room can get very loud. Nick & Stefs is no longer my "go to" restaurant in LA.

Came here and was afforded a good meal. If you want a great steak in downtown, you really can't go wrong here. It had great decor and decent service and I'd recommend it for casual meals and special occasions. The steak was great. One thing that I loved was the fact that they kept rock salt on the table so...

I have been to Nick & Stef's for work functions during the week and it's nice. The crowd on a Saturday was completely different and lacking. The environment was boring, but the food was great. The pop-overs are out of this world!

We decided to try this place after we saw a video for them on Youtube from others that have tried it and the meat gods smiled down upon us. The food here was spectacular from the sides all the way to dessert. We started with the crab cakes and scallops which were heavenly before moving on to the oysters and... More

I was in L.A. for a conference and one of the group dinners was at Nick & Stef's steakhouse. We didn't have a private room, just 3 large tables in dining room . It was hard to hear and the service was slow. It took a long time just to get a drink that I ordered. We had a prefix... More

We had our law firm's Christmas party here based on all the raving reviews. Unfortunately for us, the food apparent is different for individual diners and group diners. We had a choice of steak, lamb and some seafood dish. I had the steak and my wife had the lamb, neither of us ate more than a few bites, though our... More

Be prepared for excellent service, an extensive wine list, and a bill that will be equally surprising. Steaks start at $45 and side dishes are extra. We had a party of four and I must admit the food was delicious, however, my New York strip steak, although tasty, was tough to chew. The waiter was attentive, informative, and friendly. The... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
