Okay, so I admit, every time I go there I just have to express how fabulous this restaurant is (although Trip Advisor only lets me write one monthly) ! So you know how much we love the food, atmosphere and staff. This time I thought I would focus on the owners of the restaurant. We love going here for the company of the owners as well as the food. My husband and I have been in the service business for the last thirty years and the hospitality business for the last ten years, so we appreciate the complexities of running a business such as the restaurant business. Trust me, it's not easy. The minute you walk in the door you're greeted with a big smile and a sense that you're the only customer there that night. We watch Simon treat everyone who walks in the same way, and when you leave he thanks you for coming and genuinely appreciates the fact that you have been there. And I know his wife is working in the back treating their employees the same way, as the staff is so friendly and attentive to your every need. They respect your privacy but are always making sure that your meal is served in a timely manner, your glass is not empty and if you want to take your time with your meal-that's okay-even though the house is full that night (and every night) and they could have turned our table more times than the second hand on a clock. And always with a smile on their face. We come here to relax and enjoy the food. If you're looking for someplace where the food comes out minutes after you order it, your wait staff hovers over you to move you along, and your check is there the minute your meal is served, then run into Wickenburg and eat at MacDonald's or Burger King. This is not the place for that. Our time here is for the whole experience. Now that we're back in Bozeman (where there are tons of fine places to eat) we find that we just can't duplicate our experience and service we receive from Nichol's. We look forward to next winter. Thank you, Simon, for making a difference in our winter stay in Arizona. Hats off to an outstanding place to visit! Debi and JT
