“Very enjoyable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

We had a pleasant dinner with friends. Off the beaten path, this cozy (some may say crowded) restaurant has a menu to please most anyone. From appetizers to desserts, the food was very tasty, moderately priced and were decent portions. Nothing was 'wow' but nothing was disappointing either. This would be a great place to meet friends for dinner. We'll be back for sure.

“Near perfection!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014 via mobile

Be warned that it can be a bit loud. But the food is amazing. Hard to choose what to order. The Asian shrimp salad is slightly spicy with great flavor. The vibe is hip professional. The service superb. Really fabulous.

“Most consistent affordable restaurant in LG”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

I have eaten at Nick's and Nick's Next Door multiple times and must admit that it is the most consistent restaurant in Los Gatos when it comes to food and service that is within a "normal" price range (in other words, not including Manresa). The atmosphere is nice and the menu excellent with a nice variety of choices. Service is always great, and Nick himself is most often available to warmly great his guests.

“Nick's is the LG standard!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

Nick's has great food. Quality is consistently good. Dishes are often innovative and creative. The cocktails are great and the outdoor seating by the fireplace is wonderful. It's always a great place to linger with friends and food!
