Out of both wines we ordered and why ask if it’s a special occasion when making the reservation if you do nothing with it?

Large hair in food which they refunded. But gross and thought maybe offering free anything wouldve been nice after that. Otherwise food and service above par.

If the restaurant knows that the event will be a Birthday celebration, please mention that No balloons will be permitted so as to not be turning balloons away at the door.

We felt very welcomed by the hostess, manager and wait staff. We had a shrimp taquitos and tuna tartare to start. The shrimp taquitos were crispy and the tuna tartare was seasoned very well. We had the bistro plate and beef dip. Both were really good. Had the butter cake for dessert and it was yummy.

Even with a reservation we were put in the back in a dark booth. There's no brunch menu yet which was disappointing for noon on a Saturday. Our server was very attentive and sweet which made the experience much better.

Ordered two lemon drop martini‘s that were horrible. The bartender needs to learn how to make a martini. I recommend you have that bartender make you a lemon drop with Belvedere and taste it. Our food arrived, we requested ranch dressing and ketchup when we ordered, that did not arrive with our dinners. Both waitresses wrote all of this down when we ordered. No silverware or napkins was ever given to us.So, we had to wait for another server to walk by and request it. No apologies were ever made by the first two servers. The third server that we had, did a great job. We love Nick’s, Maybe it was just an off night?

I love Nick’s and this was the first time I felt the service was sub par. We arrived early for our reservations so I understand not being seated immediately. But our reservation time of 730pm came and went. At 745, I went up to ask how much longer and I kid you not...I made eye contact with 3 staff and none stopped to ask they could help. Instead, they walked up to the other staff about 8 feet from where I was standing. We finally were seated a little after 750pm. After we placed our drinks/food order, we never got our drinks until we got our appetizers even though we could see the drinks sitting at the bar for a while. We had to ask for the drinks when the appetizers were set down.

If not for the delicious food, I would’ve given only 2 stars. But our food and drinks were as I remembered...excellent! And, out of the numerous times I’ve been to Nick’s, this was the only time I thought the service was bad. Let’s hope it’s the last time!

We eat at Nicks Laguna because it’s closer and had a business meeting and picked Manhattan beach to meet somewhere in beyLA and or she county. We love Nicks but the waiter refused to put the fish sandwich on Parmesan toast no big deal but we have it all the time ..strange times but an easy thing to accommodate I would think ..

Seated immediately upon checking in for reservations, initial server was very good and attentive and provided the customary bag to store your mask. Our food was shrimp taquitos, fried asparagus were delicious. I like the concept of the deviled eggs, the white of the eggs were deep fried then stuffed, however it lacked good flavor and was just ok; I would not get it again. Main entrees were good as usual, we had the Seabass which comes with mashed potatoes and a mix greens, the other entrée was a burger and it was said to be delish as well. Service changed once the wait staff changed, the first was attentive and ready to assist, however the second server whose name was Caesar provided little to no service, did not check back with us but thankfully the manager and another server filled in the gap for him unbeknownst to Caesar. Love this place anytime I am in the city one of my go to restaurants and the one in San Clemente. The chain for these restaurants serve great food and are consistent. Parking lot is across the street with a 2hr max, just have change or credit card.
