Description: Bistro Niko is a nod to Paris, right in the heart of Buckhead. The modern French fare is authentic & simple, while the affordably priced wine list, exciting cocktails and extensive craft beer list ensure that everyone finds something to suit their tastes. Grand ceilings, art from Paris and a patio that overlooks Peachtree make Bistro Niko at once a destination and a neighborhood restaurant.

“Atlanta's best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

Atlanta has some well-known, good restaurants: Bacchanalia, Chops Lobster Bar, Veni Vidi Vici, One Flew South, Bone’s, Kyma just to name a few. I never wanted to go these places more than once or twice. Bistro Niko is different, we have lunch or dinner here once or twice a month for the past three years. It filled the void after the closing of Brasserie Le Coze, although those of us who remember Sieger’s (it closed so long ago that I could misspell) are still inconsolable. Cozy room, great chef (my favorites: French onion soup, Blue Point oysters, escargots, breast of duck, beef cheeks), and the very best restaurant manager in Atlanta – Sam.

“A Touch of Paris in Atlanta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

My wife and I love to have lunch here. It brings back memories of French bistros...just a little classier. The "faux" gras pate, onion soup, mussels, paillard poulet...all great choices. We enjoyed chatting with James, our waiter. All the staff are friendly and attentive. I made a "blind" choice of a Viognier; it turned out to be excellent with a green apple fruitiness.We recommend valet parking, since the adjoining garage is quite full at lunch time.

“Like a dinner in France. Bon Appetit.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

Bistro Niko was a very pleasant surprise. In the heart of Buckhead, this reasonably priced French restaurant served up yummy country French food. The wine list is superb with a great number of very good wines under $50. We both ordered seafood and the dishes were divine. No skimpy potions either; rather it was a burgundian style rich seafood served with the perfect accompaniment of haricot vert and creamy rich mashed potatoes. We chose the Simmonet-Febvre Chablis which brought us right back to Burgundy. Share the sweet and salty Caramel sundae which incorporated just enough of the salted caramel accents. A superb dinner that will not break the bank.

“A little French Food in Buckhead, anyone?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

I have walked by this restaurant dozens of times and finally had a chance to try it out. It was slam-packed on a mid-week night and we had to wait at the bar for our table (so you might want to make reservations). The food, service, and prices were all reasonable, and there's a lot of 'stuff' on the menu that we will have to work our way through on our return visits. I tried a seafood dish with a light cream sauce over pasta, and it was just what I expected and was looking for. Bon appetit!
