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.

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!

Great location. Parking can be a concern in Manhattan Beach but there is ample parking in the structure below. The atmosphere is great. The staff friendly and the service is great.

We are absolutely lovers of Nicks! My wife surprised me and brought me here for lunch for my birthday! Everything was absolutely wonderful. Our waitress Kristina was amazing and even got me a card from all of the staff! These are the reasons we continue to come back.

Hostess was selective and trying to seat us at the bar area even though we had reservations and tables available in main area, we asked why and she said others were there first. Who did she mean, I don’t know. She added “we treat everyone equally” not sure why she even added that all we asked was can we sit at the main area not bar. For the waitress, Please wait for me to finish shewing my food before you remove my plate.

The food and service were very good, as usual. However, next to our party was seated a group of about 6-8 very, loud women. Thy talked loudly, laughed loudly and completely impacted our experience. I felt badly for their server. Clearly a situation that nobody knew how to handle. Next time, we will ask to be reseated if that happens.

I love Nicks. I think their pricing is fair and their food is good. I am in love with their Kale and Quinoa Salad. The texture is amazing. So good. And their butter cake... to die for!! A must if you go there. Can’t go wrong.

Nicks is our favorite Manhattan Beach Restaurant to go to when we visit our son in the area. Saturday Danielle waited on us and she was wonderful. The atmosphere is great and the food is always excellent.
The shrimp taquito appetizer is to die for. The salmon was very good. The blackened fish sandwich was very good. Everything we’ve ordered has been great.

Fish sandwich was delish and sea bass was good, a little overcooked.. Limited selection on the menu though. Butter cake and lemon cake were awesome.

My first time at Nicks for breakfast and I was disappointed. The food(pancake and hash browns) was not that good at all and the coffee was terrible. The service was sporadic. Too many servers just standing around.
