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.

Let's start with the positives. The scallops were fantastic. The rest of the experience was a series of misfortunate steps.

If the servers were having a contest on who can rush the customer the most, ours would have won. We ordered and in less than a minute the appetizers arrived. Midway through our eating the appetizers, the server brought the utensils for the entrees and before the appetizers were finished he brought the entrees. Totally unacceptable.

And the beet salad was not well executed. A few of my beets were still hard.

Overall the staff failed on this visit

The fact the The Miss Universe contestants were dining with us had no effect on the food quality or service. It was an absolute pleasure to be in such great company.

Fabulous as always. So nice to have options other than steaks, crab cakes and salmon! The mushroom flatbread was an extra nice surprise. Mussels always cooked to perfection.

While our server was very friendly...we had 2 separate occasions that were unpleasant.
My husband ordered a vodka martini up with a lemon twist. The server brought it out and thought he said a lime twist. When we told him the mistake, instead of taking the martini back and making a new one, he brought him a twist of lemon on a napkin. At that time, we had to request that another martini just be made. Not sure why the server would think that my husband would want to use his fingers or silverware to remove the lime and add a lemon twist. The martini would have already taken on the flavor of lime.
Also, the timing on receiving the entrees took forever. When Bradley realized how long we had been waiting, he went to check on the order and came back to our table to tell us that the food was brought out but that WE had it sent back because we were not happy with the order. This was completely false. Food never came out to our table. It was either sent to the wrong table, the order was not put in, or there was a disconnect between the server and the kitchen.
Overall, the food was delicious and we always love Brunch at Bistro Niko on Sundays but these 2 occurrences made for a very long brunch.

Something is off.
We would come to eat here 3x a month. Moved away from Buckhead. Visited there again about 3 months ago for lunch. Ordered my “usual”. Tonight the food had different toppings & just didn’t taste the same. Presentations were lackluster as well.

One of my favorite restaurants - we eat here a few times a year, when we are in town. The ambiance is romantic and the food is outstanding. It is perfect for dates and special occasions. The service is always top notch.

We sat in the room in the back, it was lovely! The food was absolutely delicious. The Beef Cheeks and Skate wing were the best out of everything ordered at the table. Escargot is always a win. The bread was warm and crusty perfect to dip in the garlic butter from the escargot. The mushroom pizza with truffle oil was great too. Awesome oysters as well!!

This was our first time at Bistro Niko and we were celebrating our daughter's birthday. The restaurant is beautiful and the service was top notch. We dined on the Beef Bourginon, Scallps, Salmon and Veal. The veal dish preparation was different than expected but everything was very tasty and our service was top notch!

We dined on a Sunday evening with friends to celebrate their engagement. We had a great table for 4 in the quiet room. The cuisine and service were wonderful. Sherry took such care to ensure we were happy - and twice congratulated the couple, so nice. It was their first time at the restaurant. She brought a plate of profiteroles on the house. Superb!

The food reminded us of favorite French restaurant in New York and our travels to Paris. The atmosphere is perfect for a real French bistro. The steak tartare was just the right, the escargot was buttery, the Skate melts in your mouth. Plus the best frites I have ever had in my life and I am an a frites snob!

The experience did not start well. There was no one at the host stand and I had to track down a waiter. He could not find my reservation.
Sat us at a booth at the center of the restaurant that was set up for 4. The waiter did not remove the additional settings until we were well into the meal.
My date had a ceaser salad and salmon and it was fine.
I tried the "special" veal pasta dish. Not so good.
I was told that it was served on tagliatelle.... nope. Fettuccini.
And it was way too much sauce.... like soup.

Wonderful experience. Our food was excellent. My friend ate the raw oysters appetizer on the daily specials and said they were some of the best she had ever eaten. I would say the same for the scallops I ordered. The steaks we ordered were also cooked exactly as requested. We all ordered desserts as well and all were delicious.

The wait staff was also wonderful, friendly and helpful. They were quick to pick up empty dishes, fill water glasses and offered excellent advice on the menu.

The tables are pretty close together, so this might not be ideal for an intimate dinner but not so loud that it affected our enjoyment. This is a great option for a special dinner.

Afraid I give this place a try once a year and it always seems to be mediocre...nothing specific I can highlight but it rarely impresses me...obviously it's been in business long enough that there are many people who enjoy it...so go ahead, give it a try...just not one for me...
