And the food and atmosphere reminded us of the passion of our earliest days together. Thank you for a beautiful evening. It was five stars all around.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you are at all hard ofIf you are at all hard of hearing, ask to be seated in the smaller dining room. In the main dining room you can't even hear yourself think!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMy dining experienceThe food was excellent and our server Daniel was simply amazing, he was very familiar with menu and was able to answer all my parties questions. Most importantly he checked up on us frequently.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMOTHER'S DAY BRUNCHALTHOUGH WE HAD GREAT FOOD AND ENJOYED OURSELVES, OUR WAITER LEFT A BIT TO BE DESIRED. WE HAD TO WAIT SOMETIMES TWENTY MINUTES BEFORE HE WOULD COME BACK TO THE TABLE TO GET OUR ORDERS. HE WAS A PLEASANT GENTLEMEN, BUT JUST NOT THE KIND OF SERVICE THAT YOU WOULD EXPECT FROM A BUCKHEAD LIFE GROUP RESTAURANT.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe like Bistro NikoBistro Niko is better for lunch than for dinner. although the food was very good, the horseradish-crusted cod was sub-par, in my opinion. it needed to be browned more....seemed like kitchen was in a hurry to get it out. the seafood pasta was very good, and my adult kids enjoyed their entrees. the little pop-over rolls were excellent!
altho we went on Mother's Day evening, it was not extremely crowded. we arrived early, sat at the bar where the male bartender was too busy to help us and acted annoyed when we questioned why we were not getting served after sitting there for a while , un-acknowledged. the female bartender was darling, sweet and helpful, but also very busy.
all in all, we all enjoyed our experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFine Dining with a Comfortable FeelThis was a perfect place for our large group celebrating my daughter's communion. The staff were really attentive and accommodating and we didn't feel stressed having a large group with 5 children. The food was great as well and the price was reasonable.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat first impression!Some of the best mussels we have ever had. The endive salad was notable as well. All food was presented beautifully and prepared with care. Outstanding service on a busy Saturday night.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved Bistro NikoMy hubby & I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary here Sat night. We had never been here before. We noted on OpenTable that we were celebrating our anniv. From the moment we arrived to when we left, they made sure our evening would be special. Our waiter was Adam from Istanbul & he was spot on. The food was fantastic. We ordered 3 apps (pork belly & sepia on the reg menu & an app special, soft shell crab). All were delicious. The pork belly's skin could stand to be more crispy. The My husband order skate & I had steak au poivre and both were so yummy. They gave us comp dessert, my fave- profiteroles. The noise level was fine. We were not looking for a quiet nite & thought the atmosphere was lively. We would definitely go back!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousThe noise level at Bistro Niko is extremely loud, so if you are there for a nice quiet date, I would reconsider. BUT ..... the servers are outstanding, and their recommendations are superb. Each of my food choices were beyond delicious!!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMlovely food, but very noisyStaff was friendly and accommodating; food was delicious and presented well. It was very difficult to carry on a conversation as it was so noisy. Next time, I'll ask for the side room! Still, it had great energy and I would definitely return.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBistro Niko ReviewHad a large crowd with me and the staff was very attentive. We all enjoyed the evening.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food, the sefvice, theThe food, the sefvice, the wine were all perfect. This is slowly becoming one of our favourite places. Highly recommended.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMParis in Atlanta...love it!Our family continues to enjoy returning in our minds (and stomachs) to Paris when dining at Bistro Niko. The menu is absolutely authentic and the flavors superb. We are especially thrilled to know that everything we eat is made locally and nothing is artificial or imported. Our favorite dishes are always the fresh oysters and the grand charcuterie platter! We tried the mussels le coze this time and found them delightful as well. And if we could keep the endive salad in our fridge for snacking, we would! Thank you for this fantastic gem that we return to over and over.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great choiceBistro Niko remains a top choice for restaurants in Atlanta. The food is amazing, and the staff is always excellent. Our server, Matt, was great -- very friendly, personable, with a good sense of humor. All staff members, really, are excellent, and this is consistent from visit to visit. The high quality of the meal will draw you in, and the high level of service will keep you coming back. The menu is tough to beat. The only criticism is that their needs to be a greater selection of less expensive wines.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Food, Amazing ServiceBistro Niko is definitely worth a visit. The food was amazing. I had the steak au poivre and it was delicious. Before I ate the steak, our waiter asked me to cut into the steak to see if it was cooked the way I wanted it. Never had anyone do that before! My wife had the Coq au vin, which was probably the most well cooked chicken we have ever eaten. The service was amazing - our waiter was addressing us by our names, which really gives a personal touch to the experience.
The only drawback of this place is that it gets really loud. I don't know if that is because there was a big group or something. But this should not deter you from going here. It's top notch!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMLove love love Bistro NikoOur waiter couldn't have been nice or more attentive. The food was wonderful.

The noise is loud, but tolerable if you don't mind.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWelcome to flavor Country!This was an awesome experience. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time at Bistro Niko.First time at Bistro Niko. We used it as a place close to the office to get together with a vendor. While the inside of the restaurant was too loud to carry on a converation across a table of 6 the staff arranged for us to dine outside - this perfectly addressed our issue.
We had flatbread starters. Very good. The entrees were all excellent. Everyone commented on the quality off the food the next day.
We will definitely go back.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great experience.Always a great experience. Sitting in the dining room close to the door really helps with the noise. Always consistent as is the case with all of the Buckhead Life restaurant.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food and will visit againVery nice dinner with my parents and new fiancé celebrating our engagement. My parents are in their 60's and my father has a hard time hearing. But, the restaurant accommodated us by moving us to the smaller room near in a corner to avoid the loud large room and loud open kitchen area. The food was excellent, service was very good, and the prices were quite normal for a French resturant. Four of us, with appetizers and entrees, two bottles of wine rang up around $250.00. Well worth it for a special dinner such as this one. Only complaint per se, is the vibrant noise level (we dined on a Sunday evening to avoid a noisy resturant autmosphere) and my fiancé of 6'7" felt as if he may break the wooden chair.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous French restaurantFabulous French restaurant with top notch service. The scallops and lamb were highlights. Waiter made some great recommendations.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was our first time hereIt was our first time here and we look forward to going again. The food was excellent and the service was too. The outstanding service was particularly noteworthy because the restaurant was very busy at the time. Cannot find anything to complain about at all. Highly recommend it.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I enjoyed ourMy wife and I enjoyed our second dinner visit to Bistro Niko, this time with two very special guests. I could not have been more pleased with the food, service and ambiance, as we were taken into a table location that was quiet and perfect for conversation. The evening prompted a wonderful email response from our guests, which attested to "a complete and perfect evening with dear friends".4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been several times andI've been several times and the food is always excellent. There were 4 of us and everyone loved what they chose.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMInside was a happening place,Inside was a happening place, tons of small groups of people around bar area. If you have a booth in bar area it is a bit loud! Outside, weather permitting, is much quieter and perfect for a date. Food great, some very heavy, recommend sharing and sampling flavors. Beet salad great, fried crispy pork belly was yummy, I prefer smooth creamy pâté over chunky country pâté but taste was good. The French bread that is served with a meal is wonderful just add a little real butter and it will transport you to Europe. I miss good bread like that in the states.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent! service was aExcellent! service was a wee bit slow at first, but overall, EXCEPTIONAL experience!

Large variety of offerings which is a change from most lunch spots.. Will be back for either work or fun4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Bistro!I set up a reservation so that my wife and I could have dinner at a romantic location near Lenox Mall. I'm ad that I chose this place. The food was delicious. I had the scallops and my wife had the lamb chops. Both were incredible. I tend to eat a good size portion so I felt that my place could have been a bit fuller.
The service was great and we enjoyed our visit.
When I looked up the restaurant I was told that it had complimentary valet which I later found out wasn't true, you had to pay. Wasn't much but it did catch me by surprise.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe recommend it!We had reservations at 6:30 and were seated immediately. Although the restaurant was pretty empty, we were seated in the bar. My fault for not saying anything but would have preferred the restaurant. We had excellent service: prompt and frequent, appropriate times for ordering and receiving food. And the food was very good. We started with Gougères (cheese puffs), light and tasty. My husband had the Crisped Duck Confit and Herbed Goat Cheese Ravioli (on Ratatouille- he ate all of it and declared we have a new place to eat when we come to Atlanta (he liked). I had the Roasted Ashley Farms Chicken, served on buttery mashed potatoes with au jus-very tasty/moist. Bananes Sundae - also good.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA Must Frequent in Atlanta!Sensational food and even more sensational service. Professional and yet so personable!

We all loved Bistro Niko.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe keep returning to BistroWe keep returning to Bistro Niko-- it is one of our favorite restaurants- anywhere.This last visit reminded us why. On a busy Saturday night, we got personal, helpful service and fabulous food. From "French 75" cocktails through "Ile de Flotante", it was pure pleasure. We had yummy pork rillettes with drinks and my husband had Wellfleet oysters as well. Lamb chops that melted in your mouth, ribeye steak /frites, a mushroom-gruyere tarte to dream about made everyone at our table happy. To emphasize excellent service here, we were given plenty of friendly engaged attention and information that influenced our menu choices for the better, but our server was perfectly professional throughout the meal. Can't wait to come back.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA very good addition to theA very good addition to the Buckhead Life Restaurant Group.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMTook the family there andTook the family there and had a great meal. Closest thing to a authentic Paris bistro I have visited in the us. The Resturant could have been moved lock stock and barrel from Paris. We started with the sampler and it was fantastic and enjoyed by all. The bread was top not as well as all of the food. Overall a great meal. If you want a quieter environment choose to sit in the front room.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoy France in BuckheadAs former ATL residents, we have strong attachments to favorite haunts amid Buckhead. Rarely do we ask about what's new and happening when we visit, but this week, we were told by Intercontinental's staff about Bistro Niko. We used Open Table app, booked a reservation, walked across the street, and had a lovely, multi- course French dinner in a lively, vibrant atmosphere. The food was flavorful perfection; the waitstaff was thoughtful and attentive. My husband and I were among the last to arrive and the very last to leave. Such a pleasant experience!3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMLove it!The food was perfect, service very good and the dining room is beautiful. Love everything about Bistro Niko except the noise! We went early in the evening and it was fine but soon got too noisy to hear my dining companions.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
