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.

Service and attention to our table was virtually non-existent for
almost 15 minutes. I got attention of Mgr., and things were better.
Server misunderstood two orders and advised it would be 30
minutes for preparation, we followed up and got him on track.

Great experience, accommodating friendly staff. Sunny provided excellent service with a fantastic attitude and a bright smile. The only suggestion is to “gate” the patio to keep the homeless from wandering in to pander for handouts. It’s not a big deal as we had a little fun with our intruder, but it’s obvious this was not his first time and was comfortable with sitting down at an empty table asking for some food. Oh well it’s the life of the city.....

Food and service were amazing! It was just really hard to hear or carry on a conversation from the noise. I won't go back on a date night, but a night with some friends or if you have the kids with you, this place is fine. It was surprisingly cheaper than I thought it would have been as well.

Wonderful experience, as usual. From lunch with a friend to a special occasion for 8 I have always loved Bistro Niko. It is a big open beautiful festive dining room. The food is very good French Bistro cuisine, excellent Country French but approachable not cutting edge. Lots of French dishes; Bouillabaisse, Coq au vin, Cassoulet, etc. I have each of these and any of them is worth the visit to Buckhead.
I have gone with children and teenagers, as well as "Foodie Snobs" and all have had a good experience. Appropriate wine list, bistro not fine steak house length

This was our first visit to this restaraunt for the wife and I. The service was impeccable and the food was spot on. We had the crab cake that was a different variation to what we were used to, but it was exceptional. My wife had the salmon and I had the tenderloin. Both were exceptional. We will rerurn.

The food was amazingly delicious, but the service was terrible! Extremely slow. Plates and glasses were dirty, no refills. The portions were also very small so the value was not great, but if you are prepared for a very slow experience with a small amount of food, may be worth it for the great tasting food.

Really good - was there early and the place is lovely. Wonderful French dishes - best mussels I’ve had in a long time. The escargot were a bit heavily sauced but still were quite good, and the apple tart was awesome. Will be back.

My husband and I came to Bistro Niko for our 4 year anniversary and everything was impeccable from the ambiance to the service and food quality!
Hubs had the special of the night which was a monkfish and love it. I had the Coq Au Vin; super delicious. They brought out a complimentary dessert for our anniversary and it was the perfect way to end the meal.
We will be back again and again I'm sure.

Went this past Saturday night. The restaurant is in the heart of Buckhead near the Financial Center. We had the Shrimp and Oyster Florentine to start. Wine list was extensive and our waiter gave us some great suggestions. My spouse had the special Haddock and I had the lamb chops. Both were prepared perfectly. We finished the meal with the Flourless Chocolate Cake which was wonderful. The restaurant was busy so this created an energetic atmosphere so this would not be suitable for a quiet romantic dinner. We would definitely go back.

Excellent food, service and overall experience. We Started with the salmon tarte which is always amazing and great for sharing. We then moved on to the monk fish and ratatouille which was delicious. My better half had the skate fish which was equally delicious. We finished dinner with fantastic chocolate martinis and profiteroles which were a perfect dinner ending to a perfect meal. Out waiter Joe was very attentive to out needs and made us feel relaxed and welcome.

Dinner was great! Strange that our waiter had to come back 2 if not 3 times to verify what each of us had ordered!! There were only 4 in our party... A little surprised at this situation at a restaurant of this caliber.

Bistro Niko is one of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta. I tend to book it for special occasions because it has never disappointed me. This restaurant does seem to assume that patrons desire a leisurely meal so if you have to get somewhere please tell your server. The service is attentive and helpful. My server knew the wine list very well as in this vineyard is 60 yards away from this vineyard so the two wines are quite similar. His suggested pairings were perfect. The Scallops St. Jacques was very good, served with asparagus on a bed of mashed potatoes. It was paired with Pouilly Fuisse, which was an excellent choice. My husband had the Minced Veal Roulade which was also excellent. I enjoyed the caramel ice cream for dessert. The atmosphere is upscale French but not fussy. The prices are very good especially considering the excellence of the food, wine, and atmosphere.

I like Bistro Niko. The food is very good and also a very good value. Very lively scene. Ask for the side room if noise is a problem for you as the main room is very noisy and the acoustics are not the best. We go to side room as usually a larger group and want to be able to converse easily.

Came into town for my birthday and wanted to have dinner here since the reviews were good. Great server except it was very hard to hear her speak. An item was charred a little too much and someone I'm guessing a manager came over to check on us and had this immediately taken back and another brought out. The same gentleman also brought out ice cream with a candle and song Happy Birthday to me; KUDOS to that guy! I would like to give 5 stars for everything but there were a few hiccups.

Pleasant restaurant with very good food and great service-attentive but not intrusive. A bit noisier than we like but acceptable for a Friday evening with lots of apparent business dinners. Drinks and snacks in the bar on Saturday afternoon was great. We went two days in a row due to convenient location to our hotel but more importantly we returned for the food, service and atmosphere of a professionally run unique restaurant.

This is my all-time favorite go-to restaurant. I love the atmosphere, the food, and the wait staff attention. Valet parking is also nice. Food is always superb! You can’t get better butternut squash soup anywhere as good as this. The lamb sandwich is always my choice. IT’s hard to break away from ordering this. Burgers are good and the fries are also the best! Complimentary birthday dessert was such a nice surprise! Thank you Bistro Niko!

Waiter Tim was excellent. He was new but obviously experienced and trained well in their etiquette. Food was excellent and presented well. Are water glasses worth film by everyone from wait staff to management, never more than 15 minutes without someone coming by and feeling without asking. Nice touch. Better service than you can get in Paris, seriously! Will definitely be back and definitely recommend two friends looking for fine French dining.
