The food was average. The fresh, hot bread is a bit tasteless it needs salt I believe. We ordered a mixed grill and it was tasty and a lot of food for one person. The service was good and the restaurant has street parking. The place needs to be refreshed a bit. The bathroom was a bit dirty.

I wasn't too familiar with this type of Mediterranean fare but was very pleased with it. The service was very good too.

The food has always been plentiful and great tasting on every visit. Although the last time the meat was a little tough. They have fresh bread that taste wonderful! It is a little pricey but the portions are pretty big. I would recommend it to anyone looking for some good Lebanese food.

We stopped by because we were in the area and this place had received good ratings from others. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and will definitely return. It was like a mini-vacation - learning about new foods, trying new things. Loved it! And downtown Gresham was great too - lots of little shops and lots of folks walking around during... More

The place was good when it opened , now it got way up there in price for what it is . Plus it seems a bit dirty and the staff is not that attentive , you can tell the owner doesn't come around often . It just seems like the kind of place that has rats in the basement .

An enjoyable lunch for a group of 6 old friends. The restaurant is dark with a nice traditional environment. The apps (bread and hummus) were exceptional. All entrees were great, hot, tasty, plenty of food with good presentation. My vegetarian dish was awesome. Prices were a bit high. Our server, Nick was very personable, but was new and not familiar... More

We had a lovely lunch here. Service was really good. Food was fresh and really large portions. Menu is very large with a ton of options for every budget and appetite. Fresh baked pita brought to every table. Good wine and beer selection.

Nicholas is my favorite restaurant in Gresham. The Mediterranean menu is varied so that our group of a vegan, a vegetarian, a gluten-free eater and those of us that like meat can all coexist over a flavorful meal. We always start with the giant pita, oil and balsamic. I've had a variety of dishes over the years and have liked... More
