Fantastic food, service and location. Nick’s was recommended to us by several people and it did not disappoint! We had the sea bass and wow...melts in your mouth!
Nicks never fails to deliver. Fantastic food quality and service. Love this place.
Everything was great! We were seated promptly outside in the alley patio, malarkey lights and music made it very nice. Waiter was excellent, everyone loved their food, and especially the butter cake! They even gave me a card signed by staff for my birthday. Highly recommend!
Pleasant and enjy
Sat in back. Would have preferred closer to or on porch. Food was good!
I would definitely recommend this place for dinner. Definitely a bit pricey but the food and the place is completely worth it. Definitely the buttercake is worth it!
They were awesome!! The food is great!! The employees were very nice!
The best place ever! 10 Stars!!
I always enjoy the ambience and vibe at Nick’s. Unfortunately, this was not their best night. Maybe it was an off night, but nevertheless, I left disappointed. I ordered the filet mignon and ordered medium rare. The steak was over cooked to medium well except for the center was medium rare. The steak was extremely salty and almost to the point that I couldn’t eat it. I overheard the table next to us complain to the server about their filet as well. I would normally send the steak back but I was on my first date with someone and didn’t want to make a big deal out of it. I expect a lot more when I order a $50 steak.
We went for our 31st Wedding Anniversary. We have come to Nicks many times in the past and during Covid it was a little uncomfortable and strange but they were on top of all the protocols and did their best to be accommodating. We did notice the portions were a little smaller and the price a little higher but I would assume that is because of this pandemic and trying to keep in business. Great place to eat and the servers are always courteous and friendly.
I’ve heard the food was great here but WOW it was AMAZING. Great experience overall!
Nick's never disappoints. And Dominic our waiter was the best. Highly recommend.
Quality food, great atmosphere, safe, great emoloyees
Nick's is always consistently great food and service.
Great food and super personable service. 10/10 will go again.
Great meal with unbelievable service.
As always, Nick's was amazing. The service was impeccable and the food was absolutely delicious.
We're glad Nick's Laguna Beach is able to serve diners on their outside patio. You must have a reservation! The food, service and ambience are always great. It's a little difficult to understand the servers wearing masks but it works. We had the Blackened Halibut sandwich. They are always delicious! It is always nice sitting on their patio where you can watch the people passing by.
Hands down one of the best restaurants in Laguna beach. Food was excellent. The only hiccup was that they forgot our food order and had to re take our order after about 40 mins but the manager took care of us.
Very good and accommodating 😀
Excellent food and great service, we have been many times to Nick's and have never been disappointed. We hope that the Covid-19 pandemic will end so that Nick's can return to full occupancy soon.
Went to Nick's for lunch to celebrate my mother in law Margaret's 85th birthday. The shrimp taquitos were amazing as was the Fried Chicken. I've never had a bad meal at Nick's. Service was outstanding and they even gave Margaret a birthday card and dessert.
They were kind enough to hold my reservation when I was running late, food was great, service was great, very cramped dining experience, I was about 3 feet away from the party next to me
Everything was perfect and all servers and staff were so accommodating. Highly recommend
Two members of my party had "the best veggie burgers they have ever eaten." My fish sandwich was delicious. They followed all the rules for Covid-19 safety.
Nick’s did a great job making us feel safe during these uncertain times. The food was excellent as always and it was great to have an ocean breeze.
We had a lovely night on the patio at Nicks! Great service & fabulous food as always :)
I've been craving the SAT soup of the day creamy onion since February.... finally got a reservation and they changed it.....maybe it's covid supply and demand issues but I really want to get back it for that soup alone!
We were so happy that we were able to get a table at Nick’s for Hubby’s bday dinner. The service was amazing, and attention to cleanliness was spot on. We had sea bass and filet entrees and they couldn’t have been any better. Nick’s is a favorite on our list.
Great food and wine, Covid-19 procedures have limited the restaurant to using just their small front end patio. They handled this very well and it was very enjoyable.
Nick's is always one of my favorite restaurants to eat at. We made a reservation prior to the second time dine-in was shut down. The restaurant called me right away and were able to accommodate us on their patio. The way they managed the situation was stellar and we never skipped a beat. Dinner was amazing, I recommend the bistro plate with steak and soup and salad.
Our server was phenomenal, the food was fantastic, love sitting on the patio, it was great to have a bag to put our masks in, and watched staff do a really good job cleaning after people vacated their table and chairs.
Wonderful experience. Food was amazing. Jalapeno margarita was to die for and do not leave without trying the Butter Cake!!!
Always A Great Experience
Great Food, Great Service
We’ve tried all the OC Nicks + Manhattan Beach & always have a wonderful meal. Service is very consistent, as is the food. Can’t go wrong with just about anything on the menu. MUST try the Chilean Sea Bass. It’s outstanding at all the Nick’s Restaurants.
Wine options are very reasonably priced compared to other restaurants.
Lovely place & great food & nice ambience. Will be back soon
Always a great time! Food is always delicious and the service is awesome!
Service was super slow and our waitress was disrespectful.
Outstanding, as always - Service wasn't impeccable, but during these times, doesn't matter - I wouldn't be A+ either. As always, a wonderful experience from start to finish!
Food was great. Service awesome as well.
