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.

We enjoyed a scrumptious Easter Jazz Brunch with our entire family. The service was excellent. Everyone commented positively on their various meals. It was a relaxed and pleasant way to spend quality time together.

Great place for Easter Brunch. They sat us early when we all arrived 20 minutes before our reservation. Service was exceptional! We had our 2 year old little girl with us and the waiter was actually attentive to what he put within her reach. It is amazing how many servers are oblivious and will put my steak knife down on the table right in front of her. This was our first time dining here, but we look forward to our next excuse to dine at Bistro Niko!

One of the reasons that we like Bistro Niko so much is that there are so many wonderful choices on the menu. Since they have the best duck confit, I tried the veal medallions for the first time and thought the meal was great. Really love that they have such a great menu.

Food is usually great. It must have been an off night. Or the second chef was in the house. I had the lamb and it was very bland. Highly unusual for this restaurant. Service was very good.

We enjoyed having brunch here for my best friend’s birthday! Initially, I was worried about the quality of service because it took several minutes to be acknowledged at the hostess stand. Once I was seated, the experience was wonderful! The food, service, and music were amazing! Everyone at our table was pleased with Bistro Niko. We’ll definitely be back.

My husband and I made a reservation, for a late evening (845pm), one of very few date nights we get to enjoy downtown. However, upon arriving, we were told it would be an additional 20 minutes before we could be seated, without any tone of remorse or apology that our reservation was not quite honored. We were told we should wait at the bar, maybe order some drinks while we waited, but the bar was too crowded to get any where near getting a drink order in, so we made our way to the restrooms. When I went in, I was disgusted. To be such an affluent Buckhead restaurant, the restrooms were a disaster. There was water in the floor, paper towels overflowing from the trash cans, and water all around the sink area. I had to hold my pants up from touching the ground, and getting wet, as I maneuvered thru the area without touching anything.

We were called to our table right at 20 minutes past our reservation time. Once seated, our server was prompt and courteous, and food was good, but overall, for the effort and value, and given our initial experiences, we would not recommend this restaurant to a friend. Next time, we will stay local in Alpharetta.

Unusually bad service this time. No waiter came for about 5 or 7 minutes which is really unusual for BN. The guy just walked up to the table, never introduced himself, and I wasn't even sure he was our waiter as opposed to another water glass filler. My husband gave him a drink order but he never asked if I wanted to order a drink--just left and, again, we didn't see him for a long time and were about to leave when he finally brought the beer. Then, he started rattling off the daily specials but he was so tall (and far away from us sitting down), spoke with an accent, and not loudly enough to be heard over the loud restaurant. I could barely understand him. I asked him at the beginning to repeat, but he was not smiling and did not invite discussion and I knew what I wanted any way so did not ask him to repeat again so that I could hear. I definitely carried an expression that should have told him I was having trouble hearing him. But, no reaction on his part. He disappeared for long periods of time. Very disappointing. Thankfully, the food was delicious, as always. But, I don't think we'll be rushing back there.

I continue to be amazed by Bistro Niko. I have dined here many many many times over the years and can truly say we have never experienced anything but excellence in service, food and welcome reception. It is as authentic a feeling French bistro as any in the country and as I leave each time I continue to wonder why if they can do it why can’t many others . They seem to attract the very best employees in service and in the kitchen.

Seated at 7PM, Water at 7:10, Bread at 7:15, had to ask for a server at 7:20.
Wine by the glass seemed to be old and sour.
Food was excellent.
Once we had a service the flow was ok.
Would be a 5 star except for service. The restaurant was not busy. Only a few tables seated.

We've had good experiences at Bistro Niko in the past. For some reason it was exceptionally noisy in the main dining room this past Saturday night, with people apparently watching a sporting event or something going on at the bar, and who were oblivious to the fact that they were not in a sports bar. Our waitress could not hear my husband's drink order and failed to bring what he ordered, and then she attempted to take our food order before our wine came, and the salads came out too quickly. My ceasar salad (ordered without anchovies) was rather tasteless. My main course (loup fish) was nicely prepared. We could have used more butter for the bread, but the waitress failed to ask us.
