    Great food in a sophisticated environment is usually limited to restaurants in the city. That is what makes this place a treasure. Consistently sophisticated menu and environment is what draws me a back. Grown-up bar with adult cocktails. It is like belonging to a country club. Can't say enough good things.

    My wife took me here for my birthday. The food, service, and ambiance were all terrific. The chef is very creative with the menu, and the presentation is beautiful. The staff are all very friendly and accommodating. The prices really aren't too high either. My wife had filet mignon with garlic mashed potatoes which was $28, and I had their seafood paella which was $26. Great place, can't wait to go back!

    Went for dinner on a Friday night with my boyfriend. It was about a 25 minute drive from my house, but well worth it. The service was great - our waiter, Kevin, was super attentive and made reccommendations on what we should try to drink and for appetizer. We went with the calarmari with 3 different dipping sauces. I'm super picky on where I eat any type of seafood, but these calarmari were great - lightly battered and melt in your mouth. Boyfriend and I each got a burger as our meal. We asked that they be cooked medium rare and that's how they were served to us. The location was beautiful and there was a mix of middle aged and older couples, as well as a few families. We'll definitely be back.

    We actually arrived about 25 minutes early , for our reservation so we stopped at the bar for a drink. The beer menu was extensive with a well organized breakdown of the types of beer, their origin, and abv. The bar staff was very friendly. Everything was delicious. Food was top notch and quite filling. We ordered a bit too much food, not realizing the portion sizes. We had the pork shank appetizer, lobater bisque soup, Kobe/boar burger and a hangar steak. Plus a selection from the impressive craft beer list. I would dine here again in a heartbeat. The server was prompt, knowledgeable and offered suggestions but wasn't pushy. She allowed us to explore the menu at our pace. The atmosphere was simple, but tasteful.

    We were welcomed warmly and pace service of service was great. Food was very good. When I see pork belly and mini pork shanks, I get excited. All food was full of flavor and executed well. Great beer list, although I opted for a cocktail and wine. Server was a bit too "bubbly", but she met all of our needs and made us feel welcome.

    If we did not have a Groupon to try this restaurant we would have never found it. We loved the food especially the Lobster Mac and Cheese that we ordered another one. The choice of beers was fabulous. We were impressed that our server knew so much about the beers that are offered. The restaurant was clean and the restroom was immaculate. We found that not only the staff was friendly but the other patrons were as well. Can't say enough about pleased we were with Nicole's Ten

    This was my husband and my third experience at Nicole 10. It never disappoints. A standout is the head bartender Lori. She is very knowledgeable about the wines, makes a mean martini, and can suggest a wine to pair with the food you're considering. I don't think anyone would be disappointed with their experience.

    We've passed this place a million times and finally decided to give it a try. We were sorry we waited so long. The menu was interesting without being eclectic. The food was great as was the wine. We even brought our 2 kids (they are 7 and 5 but are great at restaurants) and they loved it as well. Our waiter was great and the service is excellent. There is space between courses so if you are in a rush I would skip the appetizer. If you have the time, sit back, relax and you will enjoy a fantastic meal.

    nicole's10 has been one of our favorite restaurants for over two years. Their new summer menu is one of their best in recent memory. Once again Nicole and her ever clever and creative staff have produced a menu so intriguing it becomes downright difficult to make a choice. Last fridays special 'Yolk-o-Ono' was a brilliant creation of wahoo (ono) over a fig and cilantro risotto crowned with a citrus sauce that was perfectly delicious. The waffle battered duck wings to start were the best of all worlds. Lobster bisque remains on the menu and is equal to or better than the gold standard of the old Gage and Tollner in Brooklyn. Wonderful food, great cocktails and friendly and efficient service - just go, you won't regret it.

Warm, friendly greeting when you walk in, and we were promptly seated. Great service by David and Stephen every time! Definitely ask for them. David is very knowledgable of the entire food and drink menu, take his advise! Definitely make a reservation.

    Nicole's Ten was fantastic. Reservation was for 7:15 on a Saturday night. We were seated immediately in the back/side room which was a lot quieter than the main dining area. The decor was very nice. Here's what we ordered: Appetizer- "Perfect 10 Tuna" (INCREDIBLE!), Entrees: "Going Coastal" (super good), Filet Mignon (cooked to perfection and accompanied by a great mushroom risotto). Dessert was a slight let-down - the lemon cake tasted like it was in the refrigerator one day too long, and the bread pudding was OK but nothing special. They have a great selection of interesting beers - try a couple different ones, you won't be disappointed. The service and attitude from our waiter was PERFECT. I highly recommend Nicole's 10.

    My husband and I went to Nicole's on a groupon. My experience with groupons haven't always been pleasant. They far exceeded our expectations. The food was awesome, my husband raved about it and he isn't usually very vocal about the restaurants we visit. Our service was excellent and the beers were great. Coffee was delicious and our dessert was the perfect ending to a surprisingly pleasant time. Thank you so much! We look forward to going back soon. And we plan on making it our go-to night out.

    My wife found this restaurant via Groupon and it turned to out to be one of our most interesting and enjoyable dinners out recently. We got the groupon offering of three small portion sample entrees (their famous lobster Mac n cheese, sliders and crab cakes) which we shared with four samplings of the small brewery beers. We had no idea that beer could be that different from one another. Well, we especially liked one of those so much, the mild and smooth River Horse that we decided to order another for ourselves. Regarding the food, we especially liked the lobster Mac n Cheese and the sliders. We both will definitely go back there again for the beer and those two delicious entrees. The atmosphere is quite calming as well.

    Used a Groupon coupon on a weeknight whim. What a great surprise. Each of us had a beer flight and 3 Small plate selections were shared between 2 of us. The beer choices were made by the bar and were fun, varied and flavorful, giving us the opportunity to try some selections we normally might not have made. The small plate flavors were amazing and the quantity was more than enough for us. The lobster mac was excellent, huge chunks of claw meat and not overwhelmed with macaroni. The Calamari was magnificent with sweet/hot peppers, cheese bits, a bed of arugula and a very light fry. My husbands choice of beef sliders and one I wasn't excited to try feeling it may be ordinary - wrong! Excellent layering of flavors and so juicy!
