Cocktails were excellent. Best we’ve had in MB including all the other top rated restaurants in MB.

Deviled eggs were very good.

California salad very good. We added salmon and the portion was good but it felt unseasoned and bland. That’s partly my fault for not checking how it comes.

Friend chicken had too much sauce so the batter was really soggy. The parts that didn’t have sauce were really good.

Dessert menu was limited - we wanted a dessert but ended up just getting an ice cream down the road as none of the choices felt enticing.

Overall was still very good but just raising the slight issues

Was a first experience for our group of three, The food was really good, different, We actually split several of the appetizers and then a blackened fish sandwich. The environment was casual and it was easy to talk. The windows were all open and the restaurant is bright. Service could have been a little better, but overall very, very satisfied.

I have never complained about nicks in Manhattan Beach ever since they opened here across the street from my home it is our go to for consistent fabulous food and amazing atmosphere. But the past three dinners have been extremely disappointing and actually surprising. I am not sure what has happened to the chef but the food quality has really gone downhill quickly we actually had to complain last night about the fish sandwich it was so so bad and my last two chicken sandwich dinners have been absolutely awful. The bread was stale and hard the bun it’s self was not the same brand that they used to use I am sorry to have to give this disappointing review for the past three experiences

The bar was dirty when I sat down. When someone came to clean up after the people next to me left, I asked him to wipe down my side. The bistro steak was much smaller. My California salad was delicious but smaller then I remembered. We ordered a side of french fries that looked like half of a cup, and some of them were broken up, it looked sloppy. Maybe 10 fries and some of them broken. Our dirty dishes sat in front of us for at least 10 minutes.
Definitely not the same as it used to be!

Nick's, whether in Pasadena, Belmont Shore (Long Beach) or Manhattan Beach, is a great place for dining. Arianna was gracious, friendly and attentive. We asked if we could be reseated to a place where we could look out onto the plaza without being outside, and the hostess kindly accommodated us even though there were only two of us and we were seated at a table for four. The prime rib dip is my favorite and is always delicious at any of the locations. Thank you for a delightful afternoon.

Delicious lunch. I took my husband to belatedly celebrate his birthday. This is a many times return visit for me. Disappointed as I had reservations and requested a patio table. The street side patio was available but the jackhammer was going so we declined and the guests on the front patio weren’t moving. Our lunch was delicious, fish sandwich with perfectly prepared French fries and yummy ranch dressing. My spicy Thai salad delicious as usual. The carafes of wine are reasonably priced and very nice wines. Our server David was friendly and thoughtful and fully vaccinated. Nice to see a smiling face.
In the past birthday celebrations were ended with a splendid dessert offered which I believe is compt but not this time. ??? Perhaps they no longer do this. Though it’s been only a month since my last birthday visit and it was offered then. So I ordered it to go and my husband was presented with a birthday card. The oversized portion of lemon cake is a favorite, don’t pass it up even at $15.00 as if there are up to 4 guests you will be happy. Nicks is a favorite!
