We were there Monday afternoon, had the sea bass with mashed potatoes and sautéed spinach... everything was delicious and our server was very attentive. They have very good wines. Always love coming to Nick's.

We (thankfully!) had reservations for a Sunday lunch. Inside, it was extremely noisy, so much so that we had to lean over the table to hear each other speak. We requested that we be moved to an outside table, which was a few minutes’ wait,...More
