A word from Bistro Niko
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.Continued

  • "I'm always happy with Bistro Niko. High quality restaurant in a convenient Buckhead location. Makes me feel a bit like I'm in Paris! Great for couples or a small group. Noise level can be high in the main dining room. The mussels are fantastic as an appetizer or main course."

  • "I drive by this restaurant all the time and always wondered if it is as good as it looks. I can honestly say that it was better than I had imagined. The menu is fabulous and the atmosphere is amazing! This is a great place to have lunch with friends or a romantic dinner. If the weather is right, definitely try to get a table outside-great people watching!"

  • "My roommate and I stumbled on this place several months ago and fell in love with it! Now, I take any visitor there. I have been to Paris and enjoyed food at their sidewalk cafes... this place comes so close to feeling authentic. My first visit was a late summer night. I enjoyed a great wine, delicious food and a beautiful dessert on their cozy porch. Since then, I've been back for dinner, drinks or just dessert... if you're nit-picky, you may not find this place "authentic". But for me, it's a perfect little piece of Paris in my own neighborhood. Magnifique!"

  • "Trout amindine was excellent! Well seasoned without overwhelming the subtle fish. The flank steak was surprisingly tender. Service was superb! Very attentive without "hovering". Maximilian was engaging and entertaining."

  • "I have to say - as a retired chef who truly loves French food - Bistro Niko consistently knocks the dining experience out of the park! The staff is friendly an knowledgeable - the food is always spot on - and each time I leave I immediately start thinking about when I will return!"

  • "On our third visit, we sat in the salon instead of the main dining room. It was a much quieter space which allowed us to better enjoy the great food."

  • "Great atmosphere and service but the food taste is average at high prices"

  • "Used to be a great spot in Atlanta when it opened but now average at best. Food quality is so low compared to newly opened restaurants in the city. Incredibly disappointing for our entire party - no reason to come back with other choices so much better."

  • "Brought some business clients in - tasty foods, great service and server has some excellent menu knowledge and suggestions. only gripe...I ordered the salmon the portion was weak at best, I'm not an over eater and felt the value of a 2 finger wide portion was weak."

  • "Our evening at Bistro Niko was definitely a memorable experience. The menu was so good it was tough to make a choice and the service was some of the best I've had in Atlanta. We'll definitely be returning."

  • "We ate at Bistro Niko Sat night and were seated immediately upon arriving at 8pm. The waiter was friendly and helpful with suggestions if you could hear what he was saying. It was extremely noisy and did not subside the remainder of the evening. We were not looking for a quiet restaurant but we would like to hear each other speak. The food was delicious and everything was cooked to our liking. Sadly, I wouldn't return unless possibly I could be seated outside. Atlanta has so many good choices to eat that it isn't worth the money not to be able to hear and enjoy each others company."

  • "Coming off a horrible experience at Veni Vidi Vici, we tried this offering from Buckhead Life Restaurants and were pleasantly surprised. Service, staff and food was excellent...French Onion Soup is a can't miss. Flat bread pizza was superb, as were the entrees. We'll be going back."

  • "The server forgot to bring us an item completely and got one of the entrees wrong. I think he was just too busy. It also took a very long time to get anything. The server was very nice and apologized for his mistake but he was just spread too thin."

  • "Brought my retired parents to the restaurant on a Friday evening. They loved the vibrancy and energy of the restaurant. The service was great and food incredible. Couldn't have asked for a better evening."

  • "First time here. All the food was excellent, but had issue with service. Although our chief waiter was pleasant and well informed, I did not receive the proper service implements from the serving staff to properly eat my mussel dish - no bowl for the shells nor a spoon for the broth. When our waiter returned to check on us ( we tried to get his attention earlier to no avail, I had already finished the dish. He did bring a spoon when I asked for it. Ate in the side room which was very pleasant. Main dining room was very noisy."

  • "The server was not very polite, disturbing. Though he greeted me by name, since I made the reservation. that's where the kindness ended. it was a quasi business meeting. the man next to me was finished with his meal and before I new it my meal was being taken away. I don't know....... I was taught to put fork and knife together off to the right to signal to the server you are done. If not you may be asked if you are done. NONE of the above. Our host was busy giving his sales pitch and was unaware of this service level. He obviously tipped the server very well. As to the only time we heard a thank you from the server was when he saw his very generous tip. His words........................"

  • "We had a late night dinner for three. The service was a litle slow. Sometimes the wait staff seemed to disappear. The steak was ok, but not great."

  • "We were in Atlanta for meetings and this restaurant is just down the street from a hotel we frequently stay at. So we had not been there because it was just too close. Glad we went. Nice atmosphere, terrific food, accommodating staff and great time. And the bill for 4 people was very reasonable."

  • "Had an 845 reservation. Checked in at 825. Still wasn't seated until 905. Other than this, was an amazing restaurant. Great selection of drinks and food. Very "French" in preparation, very good service and quick service. Great bar area while waiting to be seated. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff."

  • "waiters should not try and sell more than you have already ordered. I ordered an omlet and the waiter asked if I wanted a side order of bacon, or grits - My husband ordered eggs Benedict- and the waiter said "would you like a side of ham, sausage or bacon with that" and My husband said sausage.. thinking it came with the meal. When we ordered coffee did we want capucinnos? I felt it was too much after awhile."

  • "My wife and I took my mother. The food was great and the service too. My 94 year old stepmother speaks softly and being it was such a busy night, we could not hear a single word she spoke at the table for the noise. But I can success breeds noise,huh? They treated her well and brought a complimentary birthday dessert which we devoured! Great place for special occasions...."
