Wow, so amazing!
What an amazing dinner! The food quality was exceptional...we had Monkfish and Ribeye steak...both were SO good! There is a live band later in the evening and really vibrant bar scene including a Vodka tasting freezer! The owner, Larry, was out saying hello to everyone and making sure the evening was special for all his guests. Such a wonderful place!

Dinner at Nic's is always great!
Nic's is a great spot for a special dinner. We love their creative martinis, appetizers and entrees. A visit to the Vod Box is a must! Desserts are amazing, too! You won't be disappointed.

Sheer Awesomeness !
Its a great place for great dinner and vodka-drinks on a Saturday night ... close to Beverly Hills and incredibly cozy for a great night out. Make sure to call a cab though - because you dont want to Walk back home after many vodka-martinis. The drinks were indeed EXCELLENT ! Bryan (or is it, Brian) - is an excellent mixologist ...

This place is great - what a fantastic experience, not just dinner but excellent service, vodka sampling, live entertainment and everyone enjoying themselves. It's more than a dining experience, its a really fun night out. Be sure you get your fur coat on and go in the freezing Vod-Box. So much fun, smooth vodka's! We will be back soon and might even have a party here it was so great! Thanks Nic's for a great night on the town.

Good service and interesting food
The wait staff was very impressive and the atmosphere casually elegant. Make sure that you know what you are ordering because the filet mignon was served with blueberry syrup, like a pancake. Delicious but unexpected. This salad was wonderful!

High Marks for Nic's
Nic's was awesome. We saw the restaurant website and owner Nic's video showing us around his place. That sealed it for us and we live in AZ. We made a trip to Nic's a part of our next visit to CA and it lived up to expectations and then some. Food, service and ambience were first rate. And the staff was superb. We were late due to police shutdown of Sunset Blvd but the staff fit us in to the VOD Box and then dinner - very nice. We will be back - one of the best restaurants we have ever been to - including Europe. Nic, we love you.

The food was very good: we
The food was very good: we ordered the duck and steak and frites. Our only complaint on the steak - it should have had a less sauce (some red/cherry/sweet sauce). Good meat can stand on its own - sauce should be there to compliment the entree - not to BE the entree. Get the Nic's Oysters. Get a martini. And eat the delicious bread.

Go on Mondays
Happy Hour is all day on Monday and it's not as crowded. The martinis are always a kick and the menu doesn't disappoint. The fun is in the more casual lounge banquette section than at the booths. The bar menu is actually better than the regular menu, go figure.
Typically the service is okay. Long gaps between visits from the server. Not a great idea in a martini joint in my opinion. Other than that, the ambiance is the selling point. This place looks like I Dream of Jeannie's bedroom or something out of Austin Powers. It's delightful.

Unique Martinis, Sautéed Oysters...
The Ginger, Basil infused Vodka Cocktail, "East of Moscow Mule", served in a chilled stainless steel cup was super refreshing and went superbly well with Nic's (Famous!) Oysters which are sautéed on spinach with walnuts and garlic. That was just the start of a unique, gourmet and very satisfying meal. Its great for a special occasion but not that family oriented. It's an upscale place in an upscale neighborhood with upscale prices. They had live music later in the evening on the Friday night I went which gave it more of a supper club feel and attracted a bigger crowd as the night wore on. Service was pretty slow so don't go there pressed for time.

More than a great evening!
Nic's Martini Lounge was more than a great evening...it was an event! The restaurant is decorated exquisitely with a Mid Century, "Catch Me If You Can" flair. Larry Nicola is an engaging host and makes you feel as if you are part of the experience.
The food was presented beautifully and the service was impeccable! We had an array of appetizers, smoked salmon, mini baked potatoes and an oyster and spinach delicacy that I am still dreaming about!
Then, we donned our fur jackets and hats and stepped into the VOD BOX! Larry, an official "Vodkateur" proceeded to explain the various vodkas they were pouring. We tasted vodkas that were distilled from potatoes, grain and rice and learned about the different tastes.
A perfectly swanky evening!

Talk about service!
We brought our newbie in af work n it happen to be HH. The amazing beautiful waitress seamlessly served us n our ever growing number of colleagues popping by to meet the baby. She was quick, friendly, n gave us all separate checks. Prob 2 doz total throughout the night extending to after HH. She repeated the menu even to ppl present to hear it to someone sitting next to them. With the frequent coming n going of guests she still never missed a beat bringing out hot dishes n cold drinks.
Of crs, food wise...HELLLLOOO it's Nic's. yummmmmy

a different night out in LA
We were visiting LA and just loved our evening at Nic's- it is well reviewed and a neighborhood mainstay, but was completely un-crowded on a Monday night- food- very good and we put our faux fur coats and hats on and headed into the Vodka Freezer for a unique experience learning about and tasting some high price vodkas- nastrovia!

I love this restaurant! The food is really fabulous and inventive. We had an incredible stuffed pasilla pepper with some divine cheese and crispy lamb. They have a fabulous cocktail menu. And for a hip and happening spot, the tables are small and you can actually hear yourself talk.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
I'd come here again for the cocktails. Food was overpriced, small portions, and too salty. The cocktails were fantastic. Didn't make it into the vodbox as my date was too grumpy after a mediocre meal.

Food and service ... EXCELLENT
We came for a night of great food and dancing.. The usual group was not there even though I inquired when making the reservations.. We still had fun but had our hearts set for dancing.. NEXT TIME!!!

Happening dinner spot
I have frequented Nic's in the past, but this night was exceptional. Food was great and the Vodbox is always a fun and unique experience. I would highly recommend this Beverly Hills haunt.
We had the Nic's fried oysters which is a must. There were six in our party and everyone enjoyed their meal. From a special salmon dish to short ribs, burgers and pork - everyone raved about their meal.
Treat yourself to something special. And try the Vodbox.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
The best rib eye and sword fish I have tasted, possibly ever. They made my bday dinner special in every way. The evening was absolutely perfect in all aspects. Looking forward to going back to experience the VodBox.

Excellent Food and Service
Nik's is just amazing. The food, the service, the setting is all perfect. I had the best half-chicken dinner I have ever eaten and the
appetizers were perfect. Every employee we came in contact with provided 3 first class service. Please try out Nik's, you won't regret it.
