Was a very nice experience ..the food was amazing and the waiters took great care of us. It was our last eating out experience before the corona virus shutdown. Glad it was a great one.

Sat in a booth next to the kitchen window & was comforted to see all of the line cooks in gloves and Nick, the owner (also in gloves) supervising the entire evening. The food was very good except for one med rare filet was closer to medium.

We love Nicks and it's so sad they've had to close for COVID-19 rules. But I do hope they open for pickup and/or delivery because we are missing them already!

I had the bistro plate with the chicken tortilla soup. High praise for the chicken tortilla soup which was the soup of the day. My friend has a tight chicken salad, which was a bit on the spicy side but overall a hit. Server was kind and polite. Will be back again

Consistently delicious food and great outdoor seating make it easy for two parents of a toddler to get a dinner day in albeit at 4:30pm.

Great place to spend an evening. Started at a high-top in the bar before our reservation and were moved to our table, located in the bar!, at the time of our reservation. I would have preferred sitting in a quieter spot of the restaurant to visit with a friend I hadn't seen in years, but ambiance was still nice, dark, and cozy.

Their food was terrific. I ordered the Petite Filet Bistro Plate, so for $23 I served a very petite filet, soup, and salad, which arrived on one plate. All was yummy and there was no need to request a take-out box.

The wine was decently priced and available by the glass, carafe and bottle.

Nick's MB: The service was excellent from the moment we walked in the door. We were seated immediately and the service was great. Even though it was a busy lunch afternoon, that didn't affect the quality of our service or food. The wait staff was top notch. It was a great impression for my business lunch. Thanks Nick's!

Great service, great food. My friend was given a choice for her complimentary dessert and it was large enough for the four of us. The manager also came by with a card signed by the staff and a small box of chocolates. Nice!

Great meal at Nick’s as always, I just wish this dumb app would quit asking me how our experience at Nick’s was. This is why I seldom make reservations with this app. It’s like it wants to date me or something.

Tried their brunch service today. Our server while I don’t remember her name was great! Everyone that stopped by our table was friendly and seemed eager to help! The food was delicious we were able to snag the last carrot muffin and that was an excellent decision. I had the south of the border skillet whatever that was called. My only small critique was the whole reason I ordered the Bloody Mary was to try the fried blue cheese stuffed olive and it was just fine. It wasn’t super crispy more like a breaded olive then a fried one. But that is a teeny criticism I am only able to give because everything else was so great!

The entire experience was great especially the friendly yet professional service given by our sever, Sarah, and her team. We never felt rushed and the coffee & water refills were always perfectly timed. The food was plated beautifully and served at the perfect temperature. We will be back for brunch soon!

Kayla and Caesar are 2 very wonderful servers. I also want to tell you that we have been coming weekly because you allow free corkage. I love the Bistro plate...whenever I like something they end up taking it off the menu...hope this always stays! LOVE NICK"S!

Our server was amazing and so attentive.
We don't recall her name but she is a white, blonde woman with a big smile.

We had the breakfast burrito and the waffle. I love the waffle at Nicks since it's super crisp and not overly sweet. You can use the whipped cream and the delicious syrup if you need extra sweetness.
They are also dog-friendly on the patio which makes it even more fun to be there.

ONLY WISH: Make the waffle portion a bit bigger. It was delicious but it left me a bit hungry...
