Better in years past. Last time I and friends were there, only one other table was occupied. For some reason we were seated in the back of the restaurant near the soda machines (not a pretty site). The owner must have felt lonely because his "work table" was near us and he interjected into our conversation on a couple of... More

This restaurant charges prices that would indicate it is fine dining and it isn't. The portions are very small (I had a seafood crepe for dinner which literally had 2 shrimp and a few pieces of squid and about 1/2 cup rice for $18.) The food is average, neither bad nor good. The restuarant is dirty, next to our table... More

You could not ask for a better atmosphere and a charming owner who remembers you and takes care of you. The food is the best! We have sampled over half the menu and it is all wonderful.

An excellent restaurant in old town Winchester everything from the appetizers, soups and entrees are top notch. The parking can be difficult especially in bad weather other than that a great place to go for a great meal and a staff where attention to detail and customer care is an obvious priority.

My wife and I recently went to La Nicoise with a 2 other couples for a date night. French cuisine was something we all wanted to try, and the majority of other reviews had good things to say, so we tried it out. The atmosphere was quaint, but I wouldn't call it romantic. Unfortunately it had snowed 18" 2 days... More

We had an event this weekend at La Nicoise Cafe. We had a group of 20 for brunch and it was one of the most delightful experiences I have been part of, primarily because we didn't have to worry about a thing. The service was second to none in Winchester, the food tasted like we were actually in Paris, was... More

After calling several places to find a venue for a baby shower, we decided to go with La Nicoise. What a wonderful decision! 16 ladies were treated to a delicious, authentic brunch with excellent service! And even better, at an awesome price!! We had a semi-private room, for over 2 hours and they even opened early for us! Frederic was... More

We purchased a Groupon for the restaurant and glad we did. We have never had French food so we have nothing to compare it to. However, we had a great meal and will return to sample some of the other menu items. We had friendly efficient service and the owner obviously takes pride in being sure his customers have a... More

Finally got to try La Nicoise Cafe tonight and was overall pleased with the entire meal and experience. The plum Brie tart was fresh out of the oven and very tasty; the bouillabaisse entree had delicious broth and amazing garlic aioli toast for dipping; the veal with apple cider sauce and mashed cauliflower with goat cheese was very different and...
