Nicki's is many cuts above the rest in Chester.A wonderful setting, windows on 3 sides, balcony dining weather permitting, friendly,attentive staff,comprehensive menu with specials& unique house made desserts,avoid if on a diet.Have had many visits & never disappointed.Can be a bit noises when full, Chesterites are loud talkers.Open Wed to Sun; give it a try when in the neighbourhood.

We ate here on a nice summer evening and the atmosphere was lovely, the dining room is light and airy, and has a relaxed atmosphere. The food is very good and the staff were able to give good advice regarding the wine and the food.

Wonderful place. We where 10 if us and had a three course meal each. Each dish cooked to perfection and the wine list small but very full

My wife and I were pleasantly surprised to find this oasis in the small seaside town of Chester . Gourmet dining and excellent service in a white table cloth environment - WOW ! The menu features a number of local 'fresh' seafood choices, a rack of lamb that I guarantee will compete favourably with anything you will find in New... More

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner at Nikki's. He had veal piccata, I had seared scallops on ratatouille (perfect for those watching carbs!), and we both enjoyed our meals. All the waitresses were adorable, and Nikki herself is a powerhouse of energy and goodwill. Why no fifth star? The wine-by-the-glass list could use some tweaking...

Had a lovely evening at Nicki's - very upscale for Chester.. but with the Haven show staff visiting here all the time.. tables full most nights when open it seems.. Unfortunately, though found the food just OK.. for the price we were charged. I was expecting more... perhaps it was what we selected? The wait staff are very nice though... More

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Nicki's. The service was top notch - right from the greeting at the door to the goodbyes. The food was fantastic - For small plates we had a beet salad and a prosciutto wrapped melon. For large plates we had the chicken and a special - maple salmon. For deserts we had... More

Had a charming dining experience on the porch at Nikie's. the menu offers many choices, including the fresh salmon entree i enjoyed. My starter, a lively, not too spicy gazpacho set the perfect mood. There are fresh salads, a delicious veal picatta, and we hear that the tuna tartare is spectacular, but they were already sold out for the night.... More
