Great restaurant- service, food, dessert, wine list, location! Asparagus fries and tuna tartar are fabulous starters. For lunch, the bistro is perfect! Also recommend the braised beef that just melts in your mouth..... and the butter cake! Yummy!

Seated quickly in bar area on a Tuesday evening. I appreciated the friendly service and fantastic short rib dinner after my cross-country travels. The place filled up, nice decor yet a bit dark... enhanced lighting would be my only suggestion

Great bar and serving staff. Clean, friendly to young and old. Hip part of Manhattan Beach. Always busy but not uncomfortably so.

I went to Nick's today and most all of the salads and sandwiches (sans bread) can be made gluten free as well as several of the entrees. Just tell your server that's what you want.
