It’s one of the best restaurant’s in the South Bay. You can’t go wrong. Service is excellent and the food is just as great.

We had a wonderful experience celebrating our wedding anniversary. Our server, Jon was excellent and made our event very special. We will go back again soon!

Solid Southern California upscale chain food. Dishes were cooked correctly, served hot, and the drinks were decently constructed. The breaded fried asparagus and the french dip sandwich are recommended. The restaurant layout and seating are not particularly charismatic, closer to a pub with an annex.

Let me start with, we’ve been here multiple times and love this place. One order was delivered and was the wrong order. After 10 minutes the other 3 orders came out. My medium rare steak was well done and asked for it to be corrected. After my entire family finished their meals after one of them being corrected, I still haven’t received my meal. Asked for the tab and within a couple of minutes my meal finally showed up when we were ready to leave. Server and manager were great and made the best of a pretty awful experience.

Very disappointing the Mac & cheese for kids is gone. You need to have a pasta option for kids!

We enjoyed our lunch at Nicks very much. I was happy it was so easy to get a lunch reservation. The menu has good diversity and the food is very good! Our server and staff were outstanding. They are sincerely focused on excellent service.

We enjoyed a great meal with attentive service. We shared asparagus fries and the tuna appetizer - both fresh and tasty with interesting textures. My salmon entree was delicious and my companion enjoyed the Thai salad. The butter cake dessert topped off a lovely dinner.

the chicken and waffles were not as good as Willie Jane's. The waffles were not substantial too much egg white and the chicken was salty and since they were breasts, very dry. Should try Govind Armstrong's chicken and waffles, made with thighs and the waffles are the bomb!

Place was great - lots of atmosphere, but that also came with a lot of noise. It was a Friday night, so I can’t complain too much about it, because I know that is a prime social time. Food was just spectacular, server was wonderful, but a bit slow for me. Again, I wrote that off to a busy Friday night. Would definitely go back during a less crowded time of day.

Went for an early dinner, mid-week. Surprisingly busy. Had fantastic service from Gregory. He was very attentive and very knowledgeable and made excellent suggestions. We devoured the chips/dip combo with guacamole, tapenade and spicy cheese. Hubby ordered fries and those were quickly gone. He thoroughly enjoyed the sea bass tacos which arrived with a very nice piece of grilled sea bass and the fixins' to make your own tacos. I loved the cioppino and there was such a nice portion we took some home. Sourdough bread for dipping was divine. We were also impressed that they had a high end non-alcoholic beer for my guy. I started with the single barrel margarita which was good and then a glass of pinot noir that Gregory recommended which was lovely. We know when we go back we will ask for Gregory's section and order the chips/dip and cioppino.

Servers were great attentive and knowledgeable. Food was delicious, I had Cioppino and by friend had the Bistro plate. Both were perfect for a late lunch. My friend was pleased with her wine selection. I tried something different and it was good but not what I expected. Still The experience was awesome.

the old waiter was great but he had to go home. Once they switch to the waitress there was no service. She doesn’t come and check if we needed anything. We had to ask someone else to get our waitress. She was lame.

Nicks never disappoints, and on a busy Saturday night, although the service was a little slow, that's what is to be expected. Still great food, great vibe.

Our table was ready immediately upon our arrival and we were greeted and offered drinks as soon as we were seated. Our server, Emma, made us feel welcome and was assisted by multiple colleagues. The food was served exactly as ordered and the presentation was perfect. The service was excellent as well, we’ll return soon!
