Contemporary French
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.

Wait staff was unresponsive. Difficult to have conversation due to loud music from jazz band. Food was too salty.

We had a really great time! We were sat on the two person booths beside the terrace and near the restrooms so it was more intimate than in the main dining area where it was a bit noisy, but hey it was a busy saturday night so as far as I’m concerned that’s a great sign. We enjoyed the mushroom and gruyere pizza as an appetizer which was so delicious and crispy. And for entrees I had to get the bouillabaisse while my husband got the beef cheek. Cooked to perfection! For dessert we had coffee and the chocolate sundae and by the time dinner was over we were ready to go to sleep we were so happy and full. Thank you for such a lovely intimate experience!

Very nice place overall with attentive service and comfortable seating. Steak Frite was excellent, as were the backed oysters. The beef borguignon was not good. Way too heavy of a sauce. Otherwise OK. I like the duck confit and several other dishes.

Lots of great choices on the menu, the server was excellent and the manager allowed us to view the kitchen when one of our party had a question. We were never rushed, enjoyed a leisurely meal with no pressure to finish.

Took out of town relatives to dinner on Thursday night to Bistro Niko. I wanted to sit in the bar area but way to noisy so we settled in the quote dining room. Good wonderful! Service impeccable! Celebrated moms and brothers birthday! Had a lovely evening! Highly recommend dining here as one of my favorites along with Atlanta Fish Market!!!!

My husband and I dined at Bistro Niko for lunch recently. We really liked the atmosphere and the food was very good. Our server was ok, she was not overly friendly, but she got our orders to us promptly and as we requested. We will definitely be back to enjoy a meal at Bistro Niko.

First time at Bistro Niko. Not knowing wha to order started with Escargot. C’est Fantastic! Moves on to the Entree Coq AU vin, is sort of acquired taste, but prepared perfectly! Coffee and desert was special. Great Service, but not a price point I frequent. Will come back to try other specialties.

NEVER have felt so rushed and trying to turn tables. Within 2 min of being seated the waiter came to table = GREAT, and then demanded whether we were ready to order = BAD. We order appetizer (already had drinks from waiting at bar) 2 min later waiter back again for entrees. We do order, entrees come fine, ask for dessert menu, order dessert and espresso, before espresso even arrives final check is tossed on table = HURRY UP. Ask if there's some reason and start to get total attitude.

As usual, food and service was excellent; however, vegetables are getting a little skimpy. Man or woman does not live by meat alone.

Way too loud. Whomever did the acoustic design had no idea what was doing. Food is excellent and service could have been a bit better. Lost my voice after dinner from telling so much to get to keep a conversation.

Our waiter was very on attentive to us. We had to continuously ask him to leave their correct something or bring something. The Room was very empty and yet we had very lackluster service. I eat there often and this was one of my least favorite will experiences
