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.

Valet parking was convenient. Timely seating with reservations. Hostess wished me a happy birthday per my reservation. Service was very good. Did not feel rushed. Waitress, Denise offered good suggestions. Food was good and delivered timely. The only disappointment was she did not get the “birthday memo” and did not bring us anything to celebrate. Assumed that was normal until the table next to us had a candle and dessert brought to their table. Sad thing, it was truly a birthday celebratory dinner for both me and my son. Kind of a downer on an otherwise nice experience.

I have been coming here for years, but it seems the quality has gone downhill. Note that the service was wonderful though.
First, both my plate and my friend's plate were chipped. I was surprised that no staff member would have caught this error.
Secondly, I ordered the nicoise salad which in my experience is traditionally served with a tuna steak or packed chunks of tuna. My salad at Bistro Niko had a light dusting of tiny flakes of tuna. This was on top of a enormous mound of lettuce. As a french restaurant, I would have thought it would have the traditional, beautiful ingredients showcased. This salad was a mound of lettuce with a sprinkling of tuna and some potatoes on the side.
Very disappointing.

My daughter was looking forward to have her 16th bday dinner at Bistro Niko. For the past decade, every year the restaurant would bring her a few profiteroles with a candle for her special day. Sadly, for this year which is a milestone, there is no candle and profiteroles for her. I can jolly well pay for hundreds of these profiteroles but for a little girl, this is what makes Bistro Niko special. I did make a note it is a dinner to celebrate a 16 year old birthday. Needless to say, the restaurant has disappointed a 16 year old tonight and I am not thrilled.

Dinner was on New Year's Eve 12/31/2019:
(-) We were not told about the pre fixe 4 course menu until 2 hours before dinner (via phone call).
(-) There were limited options for dinner
(-) The prices were ridiculous - at least 40% premium on regular dinner prices - and not sure exactly why. (-) The size of the crab beignet starter was laughable - even though it was quite tasty.
(+) The service was very good.
(+) The food quality was very good, and other than the beignet, the portions were very good.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are so honored that you chose to celebrate your New Year's Eve with us. On special holidays, we typically have a special menu for our guests to have a memorable but different experience than our everyday options. We have all of our menus posted online, including Opentable and we are happy that our staff also made this aware via phone call before your reservation. So happy the food, service and portions were very good! Happy New Year

An awesome dining experience. The lobster bisque was creamy & rich. the salmon was flaky & moist, & the asparagus was crisp & not cooked. Our server was attentive. She routinely checked with us & made sure we were enjoying ourselves. It was truly a “drop the mike” experience!!!

Our waitress was Sherry. She was very helpful in navigating the wine list. We had a lot of appetizers and a bottle of wine. Service and timing of individual plates was just awesome, and everything looked and tasted wonderful.

It has been a while since our last visit to BN. We were glad to see that very little had changed since our last time there, except for the service on a recent Friday night. Our server, name withheld, but first name initial R, was more than disappointing. While hovering of us pre-order, he was the invisible man after we were served. We had to call on a nearby server to ask for water refills, bread, order a second bottle of wine. Our server had the appearance of being a senior wait staff person but that night he was either a rookie or rude.

Bistro Niko is our favorite restaurant and we have always had great service until last night when I asked our waiter for silver wear 3 times. He was genuinely a nightmare but since we haven't had problems before him, we will be back. The food was delicious....just completely unprofessional wait staff person this time.

We have been coming to Bistro Niko for many years for Christmas Eve dinner. The atmosphere is always festive and cozy. We usually start out with the gougeres and a flatbread, always delicious. Everyone's meal was so tasty! We find it is always consistantly very good, as we dine here often during the year as well.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback. We hate that you did not enjoy the mussels. Was management made aware of your issue? If we would have known, we would have had no issue preparing you another mussel dish or any other dish to enjoy at the restaurant for you or for you to take home. Please let us know when you can make it back and your mussels will be on us!
