Wonderful experience. Fine dining. Best dessert!
As always Nicholas continues to wow us. The food and service are impeccable.
Excellent food and service, a bit pricey but special.
Amazing service & impeccable dining.
Rediculously overpriced, both the wine list and menu.
Never again .
Good food, excellent service, nice ambiance, but seriously overpriced.
Staff was very friendly and the food was excellent. Just the right amount. We did feel rushed at any point. We would go back.
I always have a fabulous meal at Restaurant Nicholas and tonight was no exception. I had a new spaccatelli pasta with braised oxtail appetizer which was amazing, followed by their new Guinness short rib - amazing. My stomach was smiling.
Service, food and ambiance was perfection. Best dining experience in New Jersey.
The most wonderful all around dining experience.
The food was excellent but not worth the money.
We had a terrible New Year's eve experience. After we were seated at the table we asked for a glass of Rose and was told they were out of it. The appetizer was Pappadelle with a mushroom ragu. The noodles were too aldente and should have been much softer. After the waiter asked if we had any dietary restrictions, I told him to limit the salt. We both ordered as our entree filet mignon. The amount of salt that was used was over the top as the meat was marinated in soy sauce. The waiter made no attempt to let us know that the meat would be very salty. I sent it back immediately. Meanwhile, Alan had to eat his meat by himself which really ruined our dinner. By the time the waiter came back he informed me that the chef could not remedy the situation with the very oversalted meat and I would have to choose something else. This time I chose Lamb which was a bit gamey and nothing to write home about. Dessert was a conglomeration of four different items which mainly consisted of ice cream and cake. It was terribly sweet. We couldn't wait to leave. Also the cost of this poor meal was prohibitive. We are done with the overhyped and overrated Nicholas.
What can I say; Nicholas is an outstanding restaurant for special occasions. The food is superb, the service is sooo attentive. I give this restaurant my highest recommendation
The food & service were excellent. One of the best restaurants we have visited outside of nyc.
We've eaten here three times and, heading in, this was the least excited we were about the menu of the night. Tonight was the best experience we've had at Nicholas.
Thirteen different plates and not a single miss. Absolutely brilliant.
The soups here are masterful. I don't like mushroom soup and it was the best thing I ate tonight. The highlight of my last visit was the roasted tomato soup; I don't care for tomato soup. I'm sensing a pattern here.
The venison was lovely. The scallop dish was surprising and wonderful. Their riffs on ethnic cuisines (notably a Japanese golden tilefish dish) are inspired. The desserts are delicate and glorious.
Next time I eat at Nicholas I'm not even going to bother looking at the menu.
Fantastic expensive food
Manhattan quality food and service at Manhattan prices
Mushroom soup, venison and suckling pig were high high quality
Roulade dessert complicated and interesting flavors
One of the best lobsters I've had. Tasted really fresh. Had the lobster kimchi ramen appetizer and butter poached lobster risotto. Service was wonderful.
Amazing, as always
Excellent meal and excellent service!
Nicholas is firing on all cylinders. The food is so fresh and tastes clean (with emphasis on natural ingredients). Food is not overly sauced or seasoned. We had three different seafood entrees, Cobia, Black Sea Bass, and Butter Braised Lobster. All superb. I felt the pricing was reasonable for the high quality food and service.
Nicolas is a perennial winner. The food and service are exceptional. I have not had a bad meal there. I especially enjoy their special menus, like the truffle menu with black truffles being featured in each course.
Extremely disappointed in the experience probably because our expectations were so high based upon all of the great reviews. Nothing about Nicholas was outstanding. The food was a letdown, portions very small, service was good but certainly not notable and our check including a 20% tip totaled $340 for two of us. Certainly not something I would ever recommend to anyone.
Overall the food was good, but service was not what you would expect. DO Not Do the Cellar Selection.!! The wine pours are short, never offer any additional, and they are not worth the additional money. Very cold atmosphere, not a warm comfortable place to eat.
Perfect dinner for a perfect occasion. Their 6-course tasting menu is the best I've ever had.
Wonderful tasting menu paired with wine. Truly enjoyed everything
An excellent dining experience. The food, service & presentation were superb. We will certainly be back again.
For the tasting menu, keep menu at the table for diners to remember the dish.
Great menu choices with great combinations although somewhat repetitive . Still wonderful overall experience and worth the price.
We love the wonderful blending of seasonings along with the perfect preparation of every dish. Wine was excellent. The service and attention of everyone is definitely 5 star.
Our one disappointment this time was the choice of dessert. We missed the traditional comfort selection.
Nevertheless, the evening was wonderful.
We are also enjoying the wines that we purchased from you with our dinners at home.
A bit outdated in decor, cocktails and menu. Does not seem worthy of top ratings.
