    The food and service were top-flight, as always. My out of town guests were delighted to discover there are Nick’s in two locations nearer to them. I never fear that a guest will not find something on the menu that blows them away with the presentation and flavors.

    Nick’s is always a great choice. Great food, good value for your money, always excellent help and service. This was the first time we were at the Manhattan Beach location. It appeared to have the same menu as our go to Nick’s and it did except for my favorite drink. I chose something else, but missed having my favorite that apparently I can only get in Pasadena. I very rarely order a cocktail anywhere (and always ask for it to be made with MUCH less liquor and a lot of juice). Unfortunately, Nick’s Manhattan Beach Aldo had to adjust. After tasting the drink, I requested juice to add to it. Turned out no juice was in the drink, only pulp. As they always are, they were quite accommodating and I ended up with quite a good drink, unique as it was! Don’t miss this wonderful culinary experience! Everything about it is very special!

    A 3.5 star experience. We were a party of 2. We were promptly sat at our table and each ordered a beer. I then ordered the prime rib dip and my friend ordered the clopping. We were busy catching up and after around 30 minutes reminded our waiter that we had yet to get our beer. Dinner than arrived. The French fries and horse-radish aioli that came with/the beef sandwich were excellent, however the beef itself was a bit lackluster in taste and the beef dip that accompanied the sandwich fairly tasteless. The bun was not toasted at all, but the beef was very tender. My friend enjoyed his cioppino which was full of seafood and a nice looking broth. It came with a good sized round of crusty bread. Our water was topped off regularly. So, bottom line - late drinks, one good dish, one ho-hum dish. Not sure I’d bother going back. Public parking was very convenient and reasonable at $6 for 3 hours. We were at a 4 top (sat down at 6:30 and out at 8:15 pm). We never felt they were rushing us to turn the table.

    The food was excellent! I’m pretty sure everything on the menu would be the same! Not enough ethnicity that work there and not a lot of other races that go to this location I think the Long Beach location is more better and the outside of the Long Beach location is more attractive than the manhattan location other then that I give it a3.8/5

    We love your food. Unfortunately we had a server who just didnt seem to understand how to enhance the guest experience. There were a few things: a salad to start and share without any utensils was one…but probably the most annoying was while I was still eating my lunch , my friend had finished hers. He came and started clearing the dishes and asked if we wanted dessert or to see a dessert menu…I looked up and said maybe when I have finished my lunch we will think about dessert. It’s Rude!

     I wanted to go back to Nick’s for lunch since we had an outstanding dinner. Unfortunately, lunchtime on a Sunday was not as outstanding as dinner time during the week. The prime roast beef sandwich was not juicy and the meat was chewy. But the brioche sandwich bread was delicious. So I guess when I’m trying to say is consistency is everything.

    Food was excellent and reasonably priced especially for Manhattan Beach. While our server seemed attentive when we sat down, the rest of the meal he was MIA. Asked multiple times for lemon for our water, never delivered. Never really checked to see how are food was until midway through the main course.
