Never disappointed with Nicks!!
First time, came for lunch. Hostess took a while to acknowledge us since she was on the phone. Understandable but still took a while, she was kind of dry in her greeting afterward. Waitress was really uppity and borderline snobby, didn’t tell us anything about the menu, felt rushed. Bartender was really a friendly girl, made tasty drinks. Ended up being switched to Dominic who was a breath of fresh air, he ended up being really cool and friendly, overheard him telling other customers about the menu, making recommendations, and then he did the same for us when he transitioned into our waiter. Food is tasty but I wish there were a few more options.
The food was great!! We went twice during our stay in Laguna. Both times our waiters were knowledgeable of the menu and so very personable. We never felt rushed even though the place was packed. We will definitely make time to go there again.
Such a delightful location with good food and great service. I highly recommend
spending a lunch or dinner at this great restaurant, especially during such
Great food, awesome drinks, and fantastic service.
We always enjoy our meals at Nick’s. Great food and service. We love the blackened fish sandwiches with warm potato salad. Excellent!!
always good , consistent food. Service is top notch. Go on off days/times to reduce wait times or make a reservation well in advance.
Absolutely amazing, highly recommend, one of our favorites! Always consistent and has the best team both at Nicks and South of Nicks! Delicious offerings!
felt rushed the whole time. mood kill.
Dining on the patio. Friendly wait staff. Great food love the bistro plate perfect smaller sized meal.
Shrimp taquitos as an appetizer and ribeye sandwich are to die for!
This spot never disappoints! The food, cocktails, and service are always top notch!
Excellent experience as always. Ambience was fair only due to state restrictions (jokes on us). Nicks and South of Nicks are the best restaurants in Laguna Beach!
So good ! Service was amazing !food was great. First time at this location and it did not disappoint.
Wonderful experience. Excellent food, wouldn't hesitate to go back!
It’s always a pleasure!!!
Great food, great service and felt very safe considering covid. Our first time at a restaurant in months and were not disappointed! Highly recommend!
It was a beautiful lunch with great service, and we were well taken care of and seated in a great spot. We felt very safe dining here during these COVID times.
Great food, always consistent.
Delicious! A little crazy getting checked in with people also picking up to-go orders, but once seated everything was smooth sailing.
I really enjoy Nicks. It’s been a favorite of mine for awhile now. We had the deviled eggs. Amazing! I DO NOT like eggs AT ALL, but my gut told me to try them, so I did. Glad I trusted my instincts. We also had the creamy French Onion soup. I could have eaten a swimming pool of that stuff. So delicious. I did get the sea bass for my meal. It was good overall but I felt like the fish needed some salt. But the winner for sure... the butter cake! Drool!
The service was great. Everyone there was so nice, accommodating, pleasant. I truly enjoyed them.
The ambiance was fine. The inside and front porch is beautiful and great. We ended up sitting in the back. With Covid, they’re making lemonade out of lemons. It wasn’t scenic or anything, but we understood that they’re accommodating what they can given the situation.
I was pleased overall. This was a great lunch trip and the cocktails were delish as well. I highly recommend coming here.
Always our favorite everything is perfection ..👍🏼
What I did not like:
The place doesn't have an ocean view, even though they uploaded pictures of it on yelp, which is really misleading, especially, when you are going to a location like Laguna Beach.
What I liked:
Literally everything else. Outstanding food (I didn't expect food to be that good)!
As always. A great experience!
We went there for my husband’s birthday. It was extremely COVID friendly. First time in months we are outside and felt super comfortable and the food was excellent!! Thank you for having reservations available!!
The food was wonderful. It came out nice and warm and delicious.
Great food and great service. High standards as usual. Nick’s never disappoints!
They are doing "take out" but you can sit on the patio and they bring it to you. Food is in to go containers with plastic utensils, but it's nice to be out. Only about 6 tables so make a reservation.
I wish the reservation would have told me that it was actually just for a table to eat my takeout at and that there are no servers....
Always a great meal! Food, Service, Ambience 100%!
Always a pleasure to dine at Nick’s
It was AMAZING from start to finish! The service was wonderful. The food was unbelievable - tuna tartare, grilled artichoke, Chilean sea bass and the butter cake melts in your mouth! I can’t wait to go back!
We arrived as only one of a handful of guests and were seated in the patio, which we expected. It was cold and windy...and at first I thought I could not stand it....only one heater and not pointed to us. The waitress asked us if we wanted to "buy" a blanket....which I responded "no"...We just got here from Carmel, where we ate outside and the heaters, and complimentary blankets were everywhere.....But a few minutes later the manager came by and rolled down the shades all around us....she said she had seen how cold we were, and thought this would help. It was a game changer. And so thoughtful of her to keep track of us. Made us enjoy our meal so much more! Many thanks
Phenomenal food, ambiance and service. Would recommend to anyone visiting the area!
Nicks is always a great experience!! The deviled eggs were awesome, he got a teak salad, I got the bistro plate (so good!) butter cake for desert was SO good! all the servers were so friendly and helpful, as usual. Love this place!
awesome lunch, they can improve the decoration inside
