    This is the second time I have been to Nick's, and I was not disappointed either time! The staff is excellent. They are professional and attentive. The food is out of this world. I had one of the evening's chef's specials, macademia- encrusted grouper, which absolutely melted in my mouth! My dinner partners also raved about their meals. This is a high-end retaurtant, but worth every penny. I wll go back, that's for sure!

    We visit Nicks every 6 months when we are in town. This time we found them to be busier than we have ever seen them and this did affect the quality of food and service and created some excessive wait times. Please understand though, that his is a very fine restaurant and absolutely should be filled to capacity on weekend nights. Hopefully they will remain busy and will iron out the wrinkles. We look forward to seeing them again in April.

    The service was absolutely horrible! :( This used to be one of my favorite places...but the service was horrific!The good is usually good, but if the service isn't good, then it takes everything else away! I had to ask for butter, water, silverware:(Also I got dinner to go for my dad,along w/soup,2salads/bread/butter.They forgot soup&1of salads.No dressing when I asked for it.We spent $250&was awful!!:(I normally have Nico who had a night off..they screwed up everything & felt like nothing was right. My company doesn't ever want to go there again!Makes me feel awful because I used to love this place:(mgr wasn't around&no one had a clue what was going on!!!They didnt even end up adding pts to my card or celebrate my bday by giving anything?!

    I had king crab legs on special. They were just mediocre. My girlfriend had grouper. It was really good, much better than the crab legs. With tip the total bill was $150, and neither of us felt like it was a $150 donning experience.

    Price point drives outstanding expectations. The appetizers and entrees were outstanding in taste but a surprising lack of server knowledge relating to wine selection and serving etiquette caused overall dining experience to fall short of expectations.

    I had dinner here for Sweetest Day this past Saturday. I had the Lobster Bisque soup which was delicious and had the Shrimp & Lobster Rissoto for my entrée. Although the soup was great, my entrée was not. I thought the Rissoto was way too rich tasting and there wasn't a balance. I could not finish my meal. My lobster was very elastic and over cooked. I asked for a side of melted butter thinking it would help the taste, it did not. The service was great but I would not return based on the quality of the seafood.

    Very nice restaurant, but watch the waiters they are so quick to pour wine,clear plates that we had to tell them not to touch the bottle of wine. Maybe they think they will sell anotherbottle but for us its annoying. As soon as you clean your plate they are right on top of you to take it away. I want to take my time and enjoy the dinner. we actually laughed and timed the waiters on how long it takes for them to grab the plate.

    The restaurant is very nice and me and my family dont mind spending money on a good meal. It is not worth the money at nick's. I can list a ton of seafood restaurants that are pricey but worth it........Nicks Fish Market is not one of them.

    We had guests from out of town and used this opportunity to try Nick's Fishmarket. The restaurant is very classy and the service was outstanding, but... the food was just OK. It is an overpriced restaurant considering the quality of the food and the amount of food that you get. We will not be returning and will stick with Wildfire and Cooper's Hawk.

    Visited Nick's on a Saturday night- the restaurant had a wine special. Had a nice bottle of wine at a 50% discount. This was our second visit and we had the same entrees as we did the first time because we enjoyed is so much. I had the lobster bisque and crab cake. So yummy! Service once again was excellent. We will return again.

    We went there before a concert at All State Arena - nice and close, booths are the best seating with adjustable lighting. Service was excellent. We had the lobster bisque which was very good. I had the abalone, very tasty but expensive $56 for the portion. Not sure if that is typical never ate it before. My husband had the shrimp and scallop risotto, large portion. Food was very good

    For a restaurant that did not appear busy, service has a lot to be desired. The hostess was very friendly but the bartender clearly could not keep up with demand. Long waits to place an order and pay our tab. After we were seated we waited 15-20 minutes to have our order taken. There was no explanation of wine specials or daily catch of the day information. After ordering we waited another 15 minutes for our soup and salad. All of which was fantastic. The wedge salad, lobster bisque, entrees such as mixed grill which I got blackened, grouper, filet, lobster risotto..it was all excellent!!! Pricey but excellent. Ambience consistent with old Chicago. Nice place to go on a date or special occasion...just unsure why service was poor?

    We went to Nick's after a concert at Allstate Arena, and couldn't have had a better time. Surprisingly it was not crowded at all, but I'm sure it has its moments. The staff was very attentive to us, and impeccable in their service. We started with oysters which were fresh and delicious. I ordered the abalone, which I haven't seen on menus here before, and was not disappointed. My husband had the sole, de-boned table side, and was likewise impressed. We will definitely be coming back.

    The food was good but not outstanding which it always had been. The service really was lacking, they were not ready game night. I had a large group and they were too busy running around and not focused on getting the job done correctly. All they wanted to do was rush you. Over the past 7 years they just seem to be going down hill. They need to bring back their old GM George!!!

    We visit Rosemont for a week once year. Last year we discovered Nick's and this year we returned and had even a better meal if that was possible. Our party had grouper, sole and the mixed grill. All the food was outstanding as were the salads. If you are staying near the convention center it's 2 to 3 miles away so you need a car (which we had) or you need to take a cab. It's a bit difficult to find but well worth. Compared to the chain McKormick and Schmidt Nick's wins hands down.

    We were staying at the Hyatt near O'Hare for business and wanted to find a nearby restaurant that was upscale. I chose this restaurant based on the reviews here and hoped for the best. It not only met but exceeded our expectations. The ambiance is lovely, and classic, and the quiet atmosphere was relaxing. Everything we tried was delicious and expertly prepared. The staff was friendly and attentive. Well worth the price.

    I met friends on Tuesday night who were staying overnight near the airport and recommended Nick's because I had been there several years ago and loved it. The service was excellent, however, the food was not what I expected for the price. Friends had Shrimp and Scallops Tagliatelle and it was very rich and the seafood was smothered with the rich sauce and pasta, all tasted the same. I had the fish special Grouper, but it was a bit overcooked and very small portion. Wine was very pricey. Bottle of Santa Maguraita was 3 times the amt you can buy it in the store. Key lime dessert soso. I realize prices are higher at the airport restaurants, but would expect better food. Very quiet, not many people there.
