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.

We love the atmosphere at Bistro Niko, but on our last visit there for Sunday brunch, the jazz band - which was great - was so loud, we could barely have a conversation. Granted, they sat us close to the band .. so maybe if we were seated on the other side of the restaurant it would've been fine. But, in our case, it was too loud to talk. And the quiche, which is usually good, was undercooked. So if you go to Bistro Niko, ask to be seated away from the music!!

Service was not up to the standard that we previously had received at the restaurant. Otherwise, our brunch was pleasant.

We went for the jazz brunch. We were seated in a dining room from which the music could not be heard. We didn’t realize this until the musicians began arriving while we were well into our meal. This should have been explained at the hostess station and we should have given a choice of seating.
The server was eager and cheerful but not competent. He was unfamiliar with the menu and just seemed “scattered.”
The terrine was tasteless and too large for an appetizer. The duck confit was excellent. Espresso machine was out of order.

Was never informed by BIstro Niko or Open Table that menu was fixed and would be charged $85 per person. OT system should have stated this on reservation page and should have included in confirmation SMS message. Won’t be going back.

My husband and I Love this restaurant! Always outstanding! I love French food and experienced it in Paris authentically. This is the Best here in Atlanta in my opinion!
It was Valentines weekend so they had a special set 3 course menu that was even better than I expected.
I wish I could remember our waiter’s name as he was fantastic and so attentive.

Very nice comfortable atmosphere. Service is great. A waiter had and accident and broken glass went everywhere into our sitting and table area. Seams like the whole waiting staff and management came over to clean up ant make sure we were ok. Our drinks were on the house as a result. Only improvements I would suggest is 1. A little more light or larger letters on the menu. It's very hard to see and read the menu with such a low light level. We had to use the light on our cell phones to see the menu. 2. Restaurant does not Validate parking garage fee. It's currently $18. They offer valet parking and that's all. It was our first visit so we didn't know and it was a line of cars at valet parking so we went straight into the parking garge which is just after the Valet Station. Our bill for the meals (3 people) was $320 and we tipped our waiter extremely well... then had to pay a $18 parking fee? Come on? I think this restaurant can afford to negotiate Validation for it's customers with the parking garage owners.

Best crab cake I ever ate and my grandfather sold crabmeat in Baltimore and was the first retail outlet for Old Bay Seasoning so I KNOW crab cakes!!! My grandmother made great crab cakes but yours beat hers by a mile. The secret was butter! Yum!

Wife and I dine here 2-3 times a year. Always very good. However, on Valentine's Day, there was a "prix fixe" menu -- $85PP!! -- that was not noted, if at all, when the reservation was made. We are seniors and NOT 4 course people. In addition, our 2 favorites -- seafood pasta and filet -- were NOT among the VD choices. Not good! Coincidentally, our daughter and her husband went to BN the next evening, and, maybe you can guess, the "VD" menu and $85PP was STILL the only choice. Really!????

The food on the Valentine’s Day menu was good but incredibly overpriced compared to their regular menu. Our server was kind but not knowledgeable about menu items or wine pairings.

Bistro Niko is one of the best combinations of tasteful food, attentive service, and reasonable pricing in Buckhead. Tip of the hat to Julian who answered all our questions and was extremely courteous and professional.

The entire visit was underwhelming. I've spent a lot of time in France and the food simply does not compare. My husband agrees. The baguette was sourdough, which was just strange for a French restaurant. The soupe Ă  l'oignon (onion soup) was disappointing. The fries that accompanied the steak frites seemed undercooked. The server, a brunette, rushed us from the moment we sat down. I don't think she even introduced herself. We didn't bother with dessert because the appetizer and main course were not particularly good. The decor was nice, at least. I cannot recommend this restaurant.

We had the best anniversary dinner at Bistro Niko. Everyone from the hostess, the waitress, and the manager told us Happy Anniversary. They gave us a great table, sent us some anniversary treats, and checked on us throughout the night. The oysters, steak frites and desserts were especially delicious.

The food was good but the service was lacking. After the first pour, we had to pour wine ourselves. Also, I like to have bread with my meal, and the staff took the bread plates away before serving the entrees....I even had a piece of bread in my hand while my plate was removed.

Regular customer; Au Poivre burger is always excellent. However the salmon, which my wife always orders, was RAW inside (we ordered it “medium”).

LOVE this place, but it's just. so. LOUD in there. Not like it's a crazy party or anything, but it's really hard to hear the person sitting across from you because the ambient noise is insane! I love the food and service but might have to ask to sit on the patio next time. The traffic from Peachtree would be less intense than the noise inside, unfortunately :(
