Nick has moved around the corner onto College Avenue. Bigger place, now has a nice patio. Great food as always! We love it there.

We came here for lunch. Parking in Los Gatos is quite difficult. So be prepared to drive around for a while and walk a distance. This place is very busy. We called ahead of time before arrival so we do not have to wait. The service was good also. We started off with the complementary foccaccia bread (very good). I... More

Nick's is a cozy place to dine. We enjoy everything and try to go back often. It is a very popular place so reservations well in advance are a MUST. Nick is always there greeting people, which I like to see.

This popular restaurant is arguably one of the top restaurants in the Silicon Valley area. We went for dinner recently on a dark and stormy night, and the warm ambiance and hum of quiet conversation were a wonderful start to the evening. The selections on the menu looked enticing and our choices turned out to be even more delectable as... More

We go to Nick's (now called Nick's Next Door) frequently, and the food is consistently excellent, portions are generous (not small bite French style), and the atmosphere is upbeat and fun. Never disappointing. And Nick has a great personality and really appreciates his customers.

When Nick opened on Main in a small cozy but smart and upscale place we went and had a very good meal, experienced good wait staff and a fine selection of both California and imported wine selections. He soon outgrew this location. So there were times we could not be accommodated without advance reservations. Even at lunch there could be... More

We met friends for our traditional lunch on Christmas Eve. Couldn't have asked for a better time. Food was spectacular, service was the best anywhere (Thanks, Joe) and the atmosphere comfortable. Can't wait to go back.....

Nicks on Main has moved and is now called Nick's Next Door, located at 11 College Avenue - across the street and up 1/2 block. This is a fantastic restaurant that serves large portions for very reasonable prices. I could not believe that the wonderful bowl of Wild Mushroom soup with a float of Truffle Oil that started my dinner... More

We showed up without a reservation for lunch. Joey made sure we were seated appropriately (my sister is disabled and couldn't sit on the high bar stools). The food was wonderful. My sister and I both had the salmon; highly recommend it. The service was stellar.
