Followed recommendations from our excellent waiter, Nicholas. We were not disappointed. Mushroom tarte, beef bourguignon & duck breast. We will be back, as we couldn’t possibly finish everything we wanted to try in one sitting!

My duck entree was ok. Steak tartare was underseasoned. Tuna tartare and raclette were both delicious.

The food and drinks were very good. The waiter was unenthusiastic. The noise level was so high it was hard to hear conversation at the table.

Always a wonderful evening when we dine at Bistro Niko! The food and service are outstanding. We ate in the bar and the crowd was awesome! A little loud for dinner conversation - but, we were told the noise level was high - but, loved the fact that the restaurant and bar were full again with such an energetic crowd!

Another nice dinner! The fried oysters were amazing. The endive salad was great. My scallops over pureed potatoes were delicious. My partner was less happy with the chicken he said was under seasoned. Our server was attentive and the atmosphere was lively. But not a mask in sight by diners entering/exiting restaurant...

Everything was on point, just a little loud to hear each other… but, we acclimated. It’s lovely to have live music.
Service was attentive and timely and the food delicious.
Overall, a lovely way to spend Sunday afternoon!

There were several swordfish servings that were undercooked and had to be returned to the kitchen. Also the steak that had been ordered as well-done was literally raw in the center. This, too, had to be returned. This was obviously not the fault of the wait staff, who did everything they could to make things right. I'm sure this is a post-pandemic occurrence that won't repeat. We will come back to the restaurant.

Food here is very good. The scallops are absolutely first rate, and my wife gets them every time we go. The restaurant decor is nice, but the main dining room is much too noisy. The side room is quieter but less inviting with no view. The outdoor tables are a reasonable compromise in good weather.

We went for our two year anniversary and from the moment we stepped inside we were so welcomed and told happy anniversary multiple times. Our server was so amazing and was super on top of everything. Bistro Niko even treated us at the end to top off our meal and our two year. Best experience ever. Thanks guys!!

The Jazz Band was so much fun, and the restaurant is just perfect for an upscale Sunday brunch. Food was ok - I would not go for the food but would return for the fun atmosphere and vibe.

My husband and I enjoyed our dinner in the main dining room last night. It was busy. We shared the barrata appetizer. My husband had the halibut special and I had the pallliard of chicken. Both were excellent! We decided on a couple of cocktails vs a bottle of wine. There are no wine or cocktail specials here, unlike Pricci and Kyma who have half price wine nights. Server was great although she was extremely busy and we did have to be patient. For a Friday night, not unexpected.

Service was not up to par ( possibly understaffed? ) but the food was great. With so many other great Buckhead Life Restaurant choices, I would probably choose one of the others when deciding where to dine .

Our first time dining at Bistro Niko. We were celebrating our anniversary - overall a good experience. The restaurant was very busy on a Thursday evening, we were seated in the bar area. Fine, except the noise level was incredible. Not exactly what I was looking for to have a conversation over dinner with my husband. Not a complaint, just an observation. Food was excellent. Waiter was the bartender, excellent. Just wish for a little more ambience for a special occasion.

I was in town for business and a single party of one.
Would appreciate the same courtesy given to larger groups of diners. (front of house staff, not waiters)
Dined here in 2019 and it was memorable enough that I wanted to come back. The food is incredible! Worth the wait & would definitely recommend! The patio is lovely.

Food was excellent. Server was slow getting back around to us after each interaction. 20+ minutes after dropping off dessert menu to see what we'd like. But did not take away that much from fabulous meal
