Great place for dinner! Beautiful ambiance. The tables are a little too close together for my liking however, and the party in the next room was so loud that I couldn't hardly hear my own conversation at our table. Love the food however. Service is...More

Despite poor odds on a Saturday night, we walked into Nick's and luckily got a table right away. Good, fresh salads followed by amazing duck confit and fish dishes. We would go back here in a heartbeat, maybe with a reservation next time.

Nicks was the perfect place to host this event. We had 28 for lunch on the porch. They had wind shields and heaters just in case. They were so helpful, food absolutely delicious and came out quickly, and the service was fabulous. We had our...More

What do you look for when you spend your hard earned $ to make a night memorable? Great service. Sure. Nicks staff is on it. They are competent and enjoy what they do. Nick himself, most times, is out greeting his guests as the old...More

Yes, it is noisy. But that is the only negative I could possibly think of to make this a balanced review. We have been there a few times, and every trip was wonderful. I am a big steak eater, and I can't seem to get...More
