You cannot beat the food at Nick’s! Generally, the service there is great, but last night it was poor. Won’t stop me from returning, but hopeful I’ll have a different waiter.

Excellent service and fantastic food. Very accommodating for special requirements and fish was very fresh and perfectly cooked. I had the Seared Ahi tuna and my guest had Salmon. Both were cooked perfectly. Waiter was attentive and able to accommodate an excellent glass of wine for my preference. I would highly recommend!

Honestly, I’m not sure this dinner could have been more perfect. We had the ahi, the fresh catch, and the mahi mahi, as well as the creme brûlée. Everything was delicious, our waiter was attentive and the ambiance was lovely.

We went for our 25th wedding anniversary. The view is absolutely spectacular the food was delicious but not worth the cost. The weather was very kind but had a very flat personality. He seemed a little overwhelmed which he’s human. But for the cost I would not come back again

The ambiance was really good esp since the weather was so mice that day. The food is overpriced and the portions were meager. The quality isnt something outstanding if you compare it to the dollar amount.

We had reservations and sadly we were just placed back by the bar area. I asked the hostess if we could sit in the other section (outdoor area) and she told me that all those tables are taken and wouldn’t be open for two hours. Right after that I saw her seat a few other couples in that area. :( The food was good but not great.

What a beautiful setting! We took a walk along the walking path in the beachside of the restaurant prior to being seated. Dinner from start to finish was wonderful. I personally had the Moroccan spiced salmon. Perfectly cooked and great flavors.

I was so excited to go to nick’s. The ambience is beautiful . However, I ordered the fish piccata and was disappointed, it was over cooked and dry.
It was super expensive and the food was a little underwhelming.

Nickʻs Fishmarket is a favorite venue for this kamaʻaina reviewer. I attend both personal and business events at the restaurant on a regular basis. It has outstanding servers, food, and views. Last evening, however, we had a personal four-person table dinner reservation. We were placed at a table between the bar and kitchen entrance. There were no views as the table faced a large pillar and opened shutter doors that blocked a majority of the views to the west. There was a lot of foot traffic, noise, and no breeze. I recommend that this table location be eliminated as it is subpar for this high-end restaurant. Fortunately, our server (Bill) was outstanding and the food, as always, top-drawer. That made the experience acceptable overall. That being said, I highly recommend Nickʻs.

The service was excellent and the salmon was out of this world good. We were originally seated behind a pole on the patio but when I asked to be moved they said no problem. The mai tai was good and had an enjoyable evening. The grounds are beautiful

Simply the best meal I’ve ever had out. Not pretentious or trying hard to impress. Just creative dishes with unexpected blends and flavors. Our server was Cheston, a 5 year veteran of Nick’s wait staff. He was superb. You can’t miss at Nick’s.

The food was amazing! I had the rack of lamb. Yummmmm
Husband had the Lobster with Mac n Cheese. Very tasty too. Only complaint is that the restaurant is too close to the family pool. So we had to sit and listen to screaming kids.

This is the second time I’ve eaten at Nick’s . Service was good but slow. Very very hot both times. The air is dead in the restaurant even though open. Need more fans to get air moving. Servers are nice but service is slow. Good ambience.
