For our 4th weeding anniversary we needed a special restaurant. A friend recommended Nikolai's. So we made the reservation and went. I am so glad we did. First, the restaurant is on the 30th floor of the downtown Hilton. The view of the city is amazing! The restaurant itself is very lovely. The service is impeccable. Yassil was our server... More

I was staying at the Hilton Atlanta, so I tried the restaurant. Had the rack of lamb and the souffle. Both were excellent. Prices were reasonable. Good service and atmosphere.

Looking for a special occasion dining experience? Look no further than the Hilton Downtown Atlanta's roof top restaurant. For a truly stunning view, exceptional service (ask for Vassil, and you can't go wrong!), and food that is nothing short of delightful. I don't review very much, but when I do you can be certain its a positive experience.

My friend and I sat in a corner table with an amazing view and had Vassil as our waiter. Vassil was extraordinary and was truly knowledgeable about not only the food, but also the wine. I have been to multiple two and three Michelin star restaurants across the world, and the food was on par with almost all of them,... More

Three of my friends and I ate there last night. It was a wonderful experience and the food was outstanding. Our server, Manuela, was excellent. She was attentive and helped make our dining experience one we will remember. We are all Atlanta natives and have talked about eating at Nicholai's for many years--we just never did until last night. We... More

I can not say enough good things about the food. Absolutely amazing. Service however was not. Felt rushed to order our waitress did not answer questions just repeated what was on the menu. A definite must if dinning here is the dessert souffle.

We have not been in years, so it was wonderful to see the beautiful renovations. The entire dining experience was elegant and incredible. The service by Manuela was superior and authentic. We loved the whole experience and truly thought the price was fantastic for such an amazing dinner. Thank you so much Nikolai's Roof!

There aren't many restaurants in Atlanta that feature a rooftop style venue. NR has been in Atlanta for at least 30 years and most people don't even know what it is much less where it is. Anyway, why digress. NR is a near five star restaurant located atop of the Hilton Hotel in downtown Atlanta on Courtland Street. I would... More

We were there to celebrate a birthday, and the restaurant, for the most part, did not disappoint. From the amuse bouche (see photo) to the dessert, everything showed great attention to detail. The chef, Stephanie Alderete, has created a diverse and intelligent menu within the parameters of a French/Russian restaurant. The service was attentive and speedy; the wine list was... More
