Date night with my wife at the wonderful Bistro Niko. Highest marks we can give to this restaurant with the exception of noise level, and this requires an explanation.

We chose to dine outside on a beautiful evening, but hooligans, punks, trash - whatever you care to call them - spent the dinner hour driving up and down Peachtree on motorcycles and in cars, all without mufflers, racing their engines. This was a deliberate effort to disrupt, and arrests should have been made, but weren’t.

Until Atlanta elects a mayor who’s not afraid to back the police and enforce the law, we will definitely return to Bistro Niko, but will dine indoors.

The French onion soup was outstanding. Probably one of the best I have had. Also, had the endive salad and salmon which were remarkable and very unique. It was a great experience and on my top 10 list. The service was characteristic of well trained and many years of experience so prevalent in Buckhead Life Restaurant Group. Always the best.

The interior atmosphere I found fairly loud when we arrived. However we asked for a table outside on the patio and it was superbly more quiet and a wonderful environment. Our server Amanda was quite gracious and accommodating. She was everything you’d hope for, pleasant and friendly as well as attending to all our needs and also recognizing our special occasion. Bravo Bistro Niko for her working for you!

I had a wonderful time at the Jazzy brunch, I would have loved to have the music being turned up a little to enjoy more of the music and less of the chatter coming from all around me. The beautiful ambiance just calls for a quiet romantic dinner exp.
We went there to celebrate our anniversary and our attendant made it special for us when I requested a dessert and he got it with the special Happy Anniversary chocolate tag(I had requested for it for my husband)
The food is delicious and me being vegetarian did not miss the vegetarian options on the menu.
My husband loved the Pork Belly !!! The cocktails were very strong and yum !

4 for dinner on a Friday night. The good; the appetizers, especially the Salmon spread were very good and the entrees very good. Favorite at the table was the Chicken. Good wine list at fair prices. Fun decor. The not so good; service was a bit slow, noise in the main dining room was such that it was difficult to carry on a conversation between us, the waiter even had to move around the table to get closer to each of us to hear our orders. There was a smaller carpeted dining area that I understand, from a friend, that is better.

This was a first time visit for my friends who were with us. On the way to the restaurant I mentioned that this is one of the few restaurants that I have visited countless times , where I have never once had anything but great food and service.
On the way he home he said to me “you were right”.. enough said !

Waiter was horrible. Slow, neglectful, and not well informed.
If it weren’t for Manny helping out our waiter we would probably never go back. We have been there many times and this was the worst experience we have ever had at a Buckhead Life restaurant.

Wonderful food but service and kitchen timing needs improvement. Arrived on time for reservation, had to wait at the bar for about 20 minutes. Then seated. Waitstaff took appetizers orders and then did not check back for dinner entree orders. After appetizers were finished and cleared by busboy, had to remind waitstaff that we wanted to order entrees. 2 of 3 entrees arrived but not the 3rd. After 15 minutes, motioned to the waitstaff that 3rd entree had yet to be delivered. It finally arrived after the other 2 were almost finished with theirs. Manager did come out to apologize and did comp part of the bill. Disappointing dining experience

A big disappointment. Not the French/Belgian bistro we hoped for. Overpriced with mediocre food and indifferent service. Perhaps we shouldn't have ordered steaks. One was pretty good, the other was overcooked and tough. Not worth $60+ per head with a glass of wine.

I was sitting where I could see the waiters getting table ware from a drawer and saw a waiter drop a fork on the floor and he picked it up and put in back in in the same drawer.

It’s sad to see what this restaurant has become. There were weird tree lights taped to the sides of the booths and cords taped down everywhere. It’s looked old and dirty. Had great service but even the food wasn’t what it used to be. It’s time for a refresh.

My sister and I arrived early for our reservation and were invited to sit at the bar while we waited. Our bartenders were very friendly, and the cocktails were fantastic. We went back to the host stand a few minutes before our scheduled reso and waited a few minutes longer. The hostess had several other parties at the host stand at this point and very graciously still sat us first (we did have the earlier reservation). Sherry (Sherie?) was our server for the evening, and if my sister and I ever find ourselves in ATL again and wanting the best service possible at Bistro Niko we would want to dine in her section again. Sherry was incredibly helpful in picking wines, taking our order, allowing us to easily add dishes, and just being a pleasant addition to our evening. Now the food. The food was fantastic. We only ordered some small plates such as the duck confit, escargot, and mussels. Not only did the food arrive quickly on a busy evening, it was fresh, hot and out of this world. We also split three desserts which were also wonderful. Creme brûlée, flourless chocolate cake, and the floating island. If you’re looking for a nice evening out, not afraid to pay for good quality food, drink, and service, Bistro Niko is where to go.
