Nick's Cove Ratings and Reviews
Please note: Nick's Cove informed us they no longer use Open Table for reservations! They happen to have room for us but they do not accept Open Table reservations.
Service is mediocre, we had to flag the server for drinks and the check. The noise level is high. We ordered oysters which were excellent. Mac and Cheese with pancetta which was rich and creamy. Dinner failed. We had sea bass which was dry and over seasoned. The chicken( thigh portion) was fatty with tendon pieces not cut out, the romesco sauce was quite good saving the breast portion. Overall the experience was marginal for the price we paid. Lovely view but we won't be back
for a place that has a show stopper of a view/setting/location, the food is perhaps unexpectedly good; reliably very good and occasionally quite excellent. a fun place for dinner with friends and quiet enough to enjoy their company.
Out meal was really good however the service not so much. My husbands lunch came out 15 min before mine and my daughters. He was done eating before we even got our food. He felt bad about eating before us but he had fish and chips and it only tastes good when it's hot. Overall it was still a great experience and we will definitely go back.
I wish the menu would change more with the seasons. Hoping the new chef will do that. My husband and I go there several times a year - the food is reliable and good, the bar is great, but the menu is getting stale and too predictable.
I'm from outside California, and have been fortunate enough to dine at Nick's Cove twice the past couple of months while taking loved ones there for a special birthday evening. Love the food, the ambiance; one of my favorite restaurants ANYWHERE. Great service, too!
I was extremely impressed with the fact that when the restaurant called to confirm our reservation they let us know there would be a wedding party there that night. They told us the kitchen might be a little slow. We did not encounter any slow down food was very good as usual and our server was very good.
Things have gone downhill here since Kuleto own/ran it. The view and setting is great and will never change, but the prices are *very* high for the current quality level of the food. Might still be good for a drink and oysters, but despite our local access and many meals over the years, it's gonna be a long time before we come back to try it again.
This restaurant was disappointing. Being on Tomales Bay, one would expect local seafood to be plentiful and of high quality. However, there was no salmon and very little crab on the menu. The fish on the menu were from Hawaii and the northern Pacific coast. The clam chowder was mediocre at best. It must also be said that the oyster dishes were excellent and the vegetable dishes tasted were very well done. However, the high prices and the disappointing menu undermined our dining experience. If Nick's Cove wants a high rating, they will have to work harder at providing more than nicely done oysters and vegetables.
We spent three days and nights here with four cousins and our spouses and it was fantastic. Our rooms were gorgeous, luxurious, beautifully decorated, cozy, romantic, mega-comfy, and fun. Concierge and wait staffs were helpful, friendly, fun, and patient. Food and drink were terrific, from freshly-baked scones to home-brewed ginger beer, mixed drinks, and great wine list. Fresh oysters, clam chowder, on and on...! Snagged the boat shack one night for a private clubhouse dinner--what a hoot! Best reunion sver--we Will Be Back!!!
Nick's bloody Marys are over the top; generous in size, spicy and interesting with the included pickled vegetables. The barbecued oysters are delicious. The fish and chips are perfect for two when combined with the roasted cauliflower with prosciutto side. Truly delicious and complimentary combinations of flavors are to be had at Nick's.
We found out about this place from several locals that recommended us going there. We were there in the offseason, so it was not very busy and a little slower than I'm guessing it normally would be at other times. The food was good as we tried many new things like oysters cooked/seasoned in multiple ways. Service was good as well. I would really like to see what the place has to offer in the summer, as I'm guessing that would enhance the experience. I would go back.
Our oyster brunch at Nick's Cove was outstanding! We were well taken care of even when we didn't want to go inside for our reservation. They let us stay outside and eat all of the oysters we wanted. The staff were very accomodating and took excellent care of our group of 12! We are definitely going back next year!
The service was actually really terrible. Had to ask the waiter several times for bread and then for water and then to take the order etc. etc. as I asked the question of the waiter he was one Which is not exactly what you would expect when you're just trying to make an order and ask a question and the waiter obviously doesn't really want to have to serve you. Pretty weird.
What a great place! Being native Northern Californians, and bikers, we always appreciate regional places that are warm, inviting, with great service. Nick's Cove covers all bases. Great food, service, old time Northern California Coast hospitality. This place welcomes all! Excellent service, the samples of in house cocktails is worth the experience, but not for all tastes, it's always about the adventure. Views, of course, are a given for this iconic area. Sunny, foggy, or just plain overcast, it's all about the North Coast. Our server also arranged shipping for 4 of the house wine glasses to our home, we could not fit them in the bike for the weekend!! How cool is that!
NOT healthy or tasty. Michelin reviewer must have been asleep when they ate here. This is our 2nd time and will not go back.
Clam chowder should have been called potato soup. Very few clams, and soup was tasteless. Shame. Tuna melt came packed with ingredients just not enough tuna. Mostly creamy mayo, and the tomato jam was way too sweet with a side of weak, soggy fries. Hey you want raisins with that?
Baked Oyster Mornay was very elementary with what seemed like bread crumbs thrown on top. But the best food on our table was the hot bread and very nice butter. This is not a place when you're watching calories. There are many other restaurants in Marshall much better.
Try the Marshall store. Can't fool these San Francisco foodies.
This place was exactly what I had imagined for my birthday. I really wanted to go down to the boathouse off of the dock, but it was occupied by someone who did not look like a customer. He had a bunsen burner and was cooking his own food. It was a little strange and definitely didn't make us want to hang out in that area.
