“great food & service again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

This was our second time to eat at Nic's and both times were a great experience. The food & drinks were very good the the service excellent. I'm not sure how all their entrees are but what we have tried are great. We were in Sedona again for a couple of nights & it's worth the extra 20 mile drive to eat here. It's in old town Cottonwood & the atmosphere is great.

“Great service, good food, but expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014 via mobile

My partner and I spent Valentine's Day at Nic's in Old Town Cottonwood. We were greeted immediately by a hostess and were able to put our names in for a table and then walk around town. The staff alerted us when the table was ready and the wait staff was fantastic. The crab was excellent but the steaks were not the most tender. Overall, the food was good and the wine list was filled with AZ wines. However, it was rather pricey for the meal. I would definitely go back but prepare to spend a lot of money!

Thank you for choosing to spend Valentine's Day with us. We are glad you enjoyed your crab and we are disappointed to hear that the steaks were not overly tender. Unfortunately being a natural product sometimes this happens. We would like to recommend that you check out our nightly specials, Tuesday is two filet dinners for $29.99, other locals find great value in these specials and we hope you will too! See you next time!

“Ribs and parmesan risotto to die for!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014

Four couples enjoyed a great meal at Nic's. It was part of the Sip & Stay promotion offered by The Tavern Hotel in Cottonwood. The Hotel owner also owns The Tavern Grille and Nic's in Cottonwood; Grapes and the Haunted Hamburger in nearby Jerome. The restaurant is upscale, busy and noisy. We received a $50 gift card to any of the four restaurants from the Tavern Hotel.

My 1/2 slab of ribs were delicious. They were slow smoked and then BBQ'd...just the way I really like them. An added bonus was having the choice of parmesan risotto for a side dish. It's rare to see that and I loved the combination. I would certainly have it again.

Our server seemed a little overwhelmed and got a couple of things mixed up on the separate checks.

“Great Specials, Great Drinks, and Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

Our friends who just moved to Cottonwood from Nevada were visiting so my wife and thought we'd like to try Nic's. We are all glad we did. Three of us had the Swordfish Special and it was excellent. Also, Sara, our waitress really took care of us the whole evening bringing whatever we needed quickly. The drinks were fabulous and the ambiance contributed to making it a special evening for all of us. We will be back because of way we were treated, the good food and drinks, and the superb service we received!
