Everything was amazing! The dinning room was decorated with Christmas decoration and it really put me in the spirit. The manager was very accommodating and made sure we had great wine. The mussels were amazing!

Fantastic experience. Service was incredible. Food was great. Thought that French fries with a ribeye didn’t really fit the experience (I was expecting small round potatoes that were fried), but nonetheless, they were tasty. Would highly recommend.

Our waiter was extremely attentive and helpful. Also, we asked for a quiet table as one member of our party is hard of hearing. They honored our request, and we had a great dinner!

Croque Madame was good but disappointing menu. It’s like going back in time to the 80s. Some classics but execution was average. Burger too dry. Country Paté really average, I was expecting more flavor. It remains a nice restaurant but an influx of quality would take it to a better level.

All my 4 ratings should be 4 1/2. Between very good and "outstanding" should be Excellent, but the grade inflation scales of all the restaurant apps don't allow for that.
I can't recall why I stopped going to Bistro Niko, but I wish I had tried it again during the past several years. I definitely will return. The coquilles St. Jacques were excellent. Properly searing a sea scallop is not that difficult, but the lemon butter sauce with a mysterious umami element was not something the average cook can duplicate. Caesar salad was good, as would be expected. The menu overall was interesting and there are many additional items I want to try on future visits--not to mention the steaks, at better prices than other Buckhead Life restaurants. Over all the prices are a little easier on the wallet than the pure steakhouse.
So, my review is 4.5. Excellent.

Disappointing that the glassware isn't appropriate to the order. The wine glasses are generic, not specific to the type of wine ordered. Wine is expensive so it would be suitable to serve it in the appropriate glasses.
We each ordered an espresso and they arrived in regular coffee cups. I find that inexcusable for the calibre of restaurant. The server told us the restaurant doesn't have many espresso cups. If you can't serve it correctly, then take if off the menu. You claim to be a French style bistro so that doesn't cut it.
Service was slow, but our server was very good. I imagine the pace is a leftover Covid staffing issue.
I find the food consistently good and will give it another try but the attention to detail is lacking.

We were sat on the table by the kitchen door. Not fun when there were other tables available. We asked to move. Then we ordered two courses. The second one showed up before we were done with the first. So it sat cooling on the side. Just not the level of standard I associate with the restaurant

Our first time dining in this restaurant. We went there to celebrate my wife's 59th birthday and requested to have the "happy birthday song"- song to her in French since we were at a French restaurant. They sent over a waitress that stated I can't sing and I don't really know French but I'll sing what I know..,. and she song it so low that we could not hear her over the noise level to point of telling her don't worry about it. This was very disappointing that you could not accommodate your guest with such a request and that you felt so little of your guest to not send someone that could sing the song.

The food and service were exceptional...from the appetizers to the desserts! Wide variety of apps and entrees, as well as a great selection of wines. Our waiter was excellent - he made honest recommendations that were very helpful and took great care of us. The hostess was also extremely accommodating regarding our request to be socially distanced from others! Food was excellent value for the price; we will definitely be back!

Our dinner of lemon sole and sea bass were outstanding. My concern was over service, not the server, but the lack of training. She was very personable, but did not know the liquor list or the wine list. Also, we ordered a fine bottle of French burgundy, but no burgundy glasses, but one, could be found, in a French restaurant. I told her we would order our entrees after appetizers, but she kept asking so we did, but I said don't bring our food early, wait till we finish our appetizers. My gazpacho appeared 2 minutes later. I felt rushed. I won't even go into full Christmas decorations on November 7th.
