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.

Special group of friends (6 total) had dinner at Bistro Niko. Everything was great. Drinks, appetizers, entrees were prepared to each person's liking. This was 2 couples first time and they were very impressed. Waiter did a super job and was there if needed, but not overbearing. This is why Bistro Niko is our favorite go to spot for special occasions, this time our annual Holiday outing. Great job as always to Sam and his staff.

Food was great, but service was lacking for our party of seven. Perhaps our waiter was "in the weeds" but we had to flag him down to order additional drinks and get our waters refilled and then once we did order, it took forever to get the drinks. Not sure what was happening as I have not had this issue before here.

The food is absolutely delicious, the presentation is beautiful and there is great harmony between the server, the kitchen, and food runners!

Oh yes, the Midnight in Paris cocktail is a must.

The hostess was not pleasant- I don’t think she smiled on the way in or out. It was hard to hear the server. Food was good and the space is beautiful. The other staff was fantastic and happy. I’ll go back and hope for a different hostess and server.

Was in Buckhead for a quick stay. Did not want to move car from hotel parking lot so looked for a place within walking distance. It was selected based on menu and it turned out to be a good choice. I got the trout and it was excellent. It had crispy skin. The green beans were really delicious - I do not know what was in the butter, but I liked it! I could not finish my meal because I ate too much of the excellent sour dough bread. I got the apple tart with ice cream for dessert. Was a great choice.

Bistro Niko offers classic, French Bistro fare. Everything is prepared traditionally, the preparations are reliably consistent and the servers are all professional. This is one of the places we have on our usual rotation.

We went for my birthday. Once we ordered a bottle of wine, our table was not visited again for at least 35 minutes. I was starving! My boyfriend ordered the seafood tagliatelle which tasted like fettuccine Alfredo from the Olive Garden. I got the Chicken Paillard which was bland. Maybe we should have ordered something different or gotten a different server, but overall it was disappointing.
