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.

Where to start ? Service was just awful. We had a business dinner and had previous to dinner talked up the about great Bisto Niko (BN) sand how they understand French (Professional) food service. We know the differnce since we lived in France for 3 years. We've been to BN more than a dozen times over the years and the service has been almost always spot on and perfect. The waitress had a bad attitude and obviously did not want to be there. Perhaps there was an understaffing issue on a Sunday night. But, why would I care when we spend $200-$300 for dinner. As it turns out our guest picked up the tab, so I did not have to go through the "tip" experince this time. At one point she tried to explain that our food was late because they were so busy. It was a Sunday night at about +/- 70%. Not the busy BN we have seen and enjoyed before when it is really hopping. She would ask if we needed anything else, and we said , yes silverware. She brought some and then had to bring more, not bothering to check if the task was complete. Dishes left on the table too long. Just dumb and uninterested. After the long delay from appetizers we told he told her to hurry up the food. We got a frown, not an apology, after that she cared even less. So, PLEASE increase training. PLEASE go back to Euro style professional service. PLEASE explain the facts of life to these Millenials if they are going to hold a job that is paid. I think we are done for awhile and will look at other options when we have an important dinner meeting or fun night out. We were embarrassed by your restaurant and the out to lunch waitress.

Great experience. Wonderful service and atmosphere. The food is excellent, and unlike many upscale restaurants in Atlanta now, you actually get a lot of food - for- the money. So , it is a great value, just like the other Buckhead Life restaurants. The owner also takes the time to personally great customers at the tables, which is a very nice touch .
