“Thoroughly recommend”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

I have been to Nick's several times now and both service and quality have been completely consistent. - Excellent! Nothing is too much trouble. It is a restaurant NOT a bistro or brasserie therefore people that complain about price are not being fair. Fresh ingredients, great meat and fish with excellent presentation. Great for couples for a special occasion, or a small party for a fun dinner. Staff have been there for a long time, remember you and what you like. Enjoy!

“Never Again!!”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Dinner with friends on 27/4/13. Very underwhelming and service didn't live up to the prices on the menu and neither did the food. Catalogue of errors on the order eg bacon on top of goats cheese starter for our vegetarian friend, uncooked tasteless fish on a main course had to be sent back, one sardine on a piece of bread for starter at a cost of £7.50!! and a megre dolop of ice cream with the slab of carrot cake.

The bill worked out to be £260 for 3 couples and we didn't all have 3 courses and some of the party weren't drinking.

All in all we felt that a restaurant on the outskirts of Bolton charging Manchester prices needed to substantially up its game on service, more experienced staff, quality of food and tasteless decor (chipped chairs at every table).

Needless to say we will not be recommending Nick's to our family and friends.

“Birthday/anniversary treat”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Had a fantastic night at Nicks in Bolton. It was our first time - but the friends we were celebrating with were repeat returners. The food and wine were fantastic. We sat upstairs (11 of us in total) and the atmosphere was perfect. I would recommend the filet steak. First time I've had steak for a while - but it was cooked to perfection. All in all perfect night, excellent food and wine :)

“Excellent, but on the expensive side”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

I went with family on a friday evening, and even though the restraunt was full, service was excellent.

The menu choice is very good, something for everyone, and the specials board even bigger. There is also an early bird menu which again has plenty of choice.. There is no childrens muen but they do offer smaller portions on the main menu and it is very accomadationg

My only complaint, an it is minor, is that its a little on the pricey side. £30 for a t bone steak on the specials menu is definatly at the top end of the scale

But to be fair food is excellent. I wiould definatly go again
