I wasn't particular about the type of Vodka in my Cosmopolitan, but maybe I should have been. It wasn't the best I've had. Also, the next day I had a killer headache. Serves me right for keeping an open mind. I think they used the cheapest vodka available.

Interesting place. Very casual but excellent menu. From the outdoor patio, we thoroughly enjoyed watching small and large children enjoying an architectural triumph of a park and water feature.

We were in need of a great breakfast spot after my wife’s Birthday dining adventure in Manhatten Beach the night before. Nick’s jumped off the list of options on Open Table, and we hurried over to meet our reservation time. We loved the food, the service, the venue, everything. Now we have our Manhattan Beach breakfast spot for our next adventure.

Hadn't been to Nick's before but it's been added to our list of great restaurants in the South Bay. Tasty food and excellent service. The asparagus fries were amazing as was the salad. Fish cooked to perfection. We are very happy with the great deal on corkage. First bottle you bring is free, second is only $15. It was a special celebration and Nick's made it better. We will certainly be back for more!!!!

From the hostess/ host to the waiter, the service is incredibly friendly & attentive. Great food, although they don't have any type of lettuce in their salads, only kale, cabbage, etc. Kinda crazy on that front. The bread is yummy (translated, warm with melted garlic butter) & the sea bass is some of the best I've ever had!!

Had a great Anniversary lunch at Nick’s! Our server, Tyler, was fantastic! Very nice and attentive but not obtrusive. The shrimp taquitos starter was amazing! I had the Blackened Fish Sandwich w/side salad and my hubby had the Classic Cheeseburger w/fries. Both were great, but the plating on mine was much better than the burger. Seeing a plate of the Buttermilk Fried Chicken go by had him wishing he had ordered that instead of the burger. We didn’t have room for dessert, but heard that the Warm Butter Cake is great! At the end of our meal, Tyler brought over a Happy Anniversary card that was signed by the staff. It was such a sweet and unexpected gesture. Very nice touch. We will definitely be back!

Love, love, love Nick's. Is anyone tired of my reviews yet? I would go to Nick's every week if I could get away with it. Love their fish, the ribs, and ESPECIALLY the butter cake. Love free corkage on our first bottle of wine or a nice glass of Rombauer chardonnay if we aren't in the mood for a whole bottle of wine.

The check in process soured the experience. Had a 1:15PM reservation; arrived early at 12:40 and was told that we'd have to wait until closer to our reservation time, even though we saw empty tables inside and outside. Sat at bar and ordered a drink and app while waiting. Starting seeing groups of walk-ins getting seated ahead of us and at 1:10, finally went up to check again and the 'head' person said she didn't know we had checked in. Really??? it's not that big and the guy we checked in with initially was rather snotty; had walked by us multiple times without a word. We were dressed nicely; we tip well; we're local; and we frequent the restaurant often. Disappointing. The wait staff, as usual, was on point and gracious; and the food was terrific. But it's not the first time that the host/hostess/check-in process has been sub par.

Great food and great service! Everything was delicious and came out timely. The atmosphere was very upbeat and the kids enjoyed the Etch-a-Sketch while we were dining. They also enjoyed their food. Finished off with the Butter Cake, yum!
