The appetizer sampler and the 3 meatballs made of duck,oxtail ,boar were more than mouth watering...hats off to the chef... We look forward to coming back...

    Husband and I went here for our 2nd wedding anniversary and so glad we did. Food is best in area. Lobster Mac n cheese amazing!i ordered the French quarter for dinner which is a melody of seafood in a creole sauce over rice. The amount of seafood in this dish is insane so good!!! My husband had the special which was a t bone steak and cooked perfectly! Food isn't cheap but great for a special occasion . Will be going back!

    My wife and I have been to Nicole's for happy hour drinks and small plates a few times and loved the creativity of the drinks and small plates, but never for dinner. It was our wedding anniversary so we figured lets try it for dinner. Lets just say we will be back.......several times. The presentation and combinations that the chef comes up with are incredible. Things that I would never guess go together add a new twist making a standard dish into something extraordinary. I won't even begin to try to describe how amazing the lobster mac and chees is.Not only is he a chef, but a true artist. It made for a memorable anniversary.

    This was our second time there since the first time was so good. Unfortunately the burgers we ordered were dry and burnt tasting. My husband got the special which was supposed to have bacon on it when told to the waitress she never offered to take it off the bill or back to the kitchen. Our experience was much better the first time. I'm not positive we will be back

  • First time at N10
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 10/4/2014
    Found Nicole 10s online and decided to try it out based on the variety of menu choices they had available. Went for an early dinner so the place was kind of quiet when we arrived although really liked the fact that we weren't on top of the other diners and didn't have to shout to have a conversation. Our server Raymond was outstanding all night - very attentive and informative. Started with the lobster Mac and cheese and shark bite calamari apps which were outstanding. My wife had the tilefish special and I had the pastra tuna- both were excellent and surpassed our expectations- as did the mango chango dessert. The choice of beers was outstanding as well- we really enjoyed our visit to N10 and will surely go back again.

    This was our first time at the restaurant. The atmosphere was nice and the tables were spaced well so you didn't feel crowded. Although she was very nice and attentive our waitress did not seem knowledgable at all. She couldn't clearly answer questions about the beers offered and was vague on menu items. The food was just okay. We had the award winning mac and cheese. It was very good but other items such as the tempura battered duck wings were not so great. We couldn't even eat the shrimp flatbread and the waitress was kind enough to take it off the bill. Overall, our experience was fine but I don't know if I would return.

    We have been here several times and the success is the consistency, always delicious. Wonderful service every time as well. tried some new items this time around at the suggestion of the server, they were equally scrumptious as the Perfect 10 Tuna we always get along with oysters, that are fresh and new varieties every time we get them. Special cocktail menu is nice, love that they creatively infuse their own liquors with interesting flavors, as what you are drinking is as important as what your eating. They never skimp, nice portions, the lobster mac has nice BIG chunks of lobster...Eat here, you wont be sorry!

    We have been in this restaurant 2 times before. The first time ( for my birthday) was really good. The second time wasn't great. The French quarter dish was way too salty. Saturday we brought friends who had never been there. The tuna dish had to be sent back and the steak was tough. It is way too pricy for what you get! We will not go back.

    Everything was outstanding - food, service, atmosphere. At the time we reserved our table, we mentioned one member of our party has food allergies. The manager called the day of our reservation to let us know that they could accommodate us. Upon arrival, she came to our table to make some recommendations. Our server was also made aware, in advance, of the fact. Would definitely go here again! Thank you, Nicole's 10!!

    I appreciated the small plates, giving me the opportunity to sample several favorites- the lobster mac n' cheese, crab cake and slider combo. The Nicole's salad was perfect. My husband had the pork loin special and loved it. Our guests enjoyed their entrees too. The only disappointment was the lobster bisque soup-- too salty. Draft choices were interesting- I've never had a watermelon beer. Our only problem is that we consider a visit to Nicole's Ten to be for special occasions and we should take advantage of the terrific food more often!

    Would recommend this restaurant. Very good food at reasonable prices. Extensive menu full of innovative items, all of which looked delicious. Was difficult to decide what to order. Did not look like you would go wrong regardless. Very nice wine list. Intend on returning. Location seems odd, however, on a highway in a strip mall next to a head station. Decor is good but not great.

    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.

    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.
