Old-school ambience and big, juicy steaks add up to a fabulously retro meal. – In Short
Popular with the older set--who burn up the dance floor on weekends--Nick & Rudy's recalls a time when continental cuisine and dark decor ruled the day.
The retro menu is a step back in time: escargot, tucked under puff pastry and oysters Rockefeller, bubbling with fresh spinach and Parmesan. Red-meat entrees rule, and come well-dressed with sides. The New York strip steak is artfully plated with creamy mashed potatoes and crisp-tender green beans.
Nick & Rudy's Anniversary Dinner – From the moment we walked in the door, we felt welcomed and special. The waitstaff is second to none and unobtrusive, but very attentive. Our glasses were kept filled, sometimes before we even noticed. We decided on no appetizers in order to save room for dessert and had the Caesar salad made at our table. It was fabulous! My husband's New York strip steak was cooked to perfection and seasoned just right. I chose the salmon . The salmon steak was simply delicious and cooked to my liking. The New York cheese cake for dessert is to die for. I would highly recommend Nick & Rudy's for any very special occasion. We celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary there and felt as though we were the only people in the restaurant. The owners are always there and made us feel like old friends. We definitely will return!
Wonderful! Our Anniversary Spot! – This is absolutely our favorite Nashville steakhouse. We have our anniversary dinner here every year and have been 100% impressed every time. The food is outstanding, prices understandable for quality of food and service. We love it!
What about the filet? – This is a great place, BUT what steakhouse does not offer a filet mignon???!!!??
A night to remember – My husband and I celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary on Saturday and from the moment we stepped out of our car the staff was attentive and very kind. The atmosphere is elegant and the food absoloutely delicious. I've dined in the finest restaurants in cities from Beverly Hills to Palm Beach and they could take a lesson from Nick & Rudy's. It was a romantic ocassion which I'll never forget.
I love going to Nick and Rudy's. I crave the Rudy's favorite...filet on yeast rolls with shoestring fries. I have to have it once a week. They staff is very friendly and attentive. I highly recommend eating here.
What A Disappointment! – My wife and I had to travel to Nashville for a doctor's appointment, so we decided to take in a restaurant along the way. I checked Citysearch and it seemed as though Nick & Rudy's was the place for a great steak lunch, so we ordered the special. While the presentation and service was excellent, the filet was disappointingly salted to high heavens. I also noted that Nick & Rudy's are following the trend of discouraging diners who smoke by placing them in awkward locations. In this case, the smoking section was on the patio.
Great experience--exceeded expectations – The experience was amazing. The owner, the waiters, the bartender were all very welcoming, and the service was outstanding. They constantly refilled your glasses, and they made certain you had what you needed. All the food that my date and I ordered was excellent, from the baked bread, to oysters, and the steak. The New York strip steak was so wonderfully put together, with the perfect seasonings. The desserts were not as promising as the rest of the food, but hopefully you would have had enough food to not have room for dessert. Highly recommended.
Our Favorite Spot – Nick and Rudy's has become a favorite spot for my husband and I. The ambience is perfect for romance. There is a cozy fireplace nestled near the bar and a great piano singer. The food is flavorful and the service is impeccable. The tableside caesar salad is a must and the oysters rockefeller are amazing. The wine list is extensive. I would not recommend going for Valentine's Day. They had a set menu. Although this menu was good, it was not nearly as superb as their regular menu. I recommend Nick and Rudy's for anyone's favorite spot!
"Our Place" – The food, the service, the people, and especially the entertainment... SUPERB! The wife and I refer to Nick and Rudy's as "Our Place."
