Zach was great!! Would highly recommend asking for a table in his area.
perfect place for dinner! Will be definitely be back
Birthday lunch with friends-sat outside, champagne and a lovely lunch. Great, accommodating service. A rarity these days and very much appreciated.
Nick's is our go-to date night restaurant. We can always count on excellent service along with great food and drinks. They never miss!
We had lunch there on Saturday and it was a very nice dining experience. The service was excellent and we had a nice corner booth on the patio.
Was kind of a rough start with getting a table even though we had a reservation. Not the level of hosting I was accustomed to with Nick’s SC. The manager however, did his best with the crowd he was dealing with and limited seating due to COVID-related safety measures. Once we got our table, the service was impeccable as usual.
Always a great experience at Nick’s!
Great ambience, very good food, great personable service. Reservations were on time without waiting
Nick’s is always a tier one experience and our favorite restaurant in OC. This location is by far the best.
Chilean Sea Bass was amazing, wonderful service and felt very safe with Covid precautions and sanitation!
Nick’s consistently delivers the best tasting dishes around, we love this place!
Food and service were excellent as always!!!
Wonderful food, and wonderful service as always. Can't go wrong with any selection on the menu.
"special" maximum 90 minute dining experience - beware
Had lunch at Nick's and ordered their Bistro Salad with chicken. The freshness and flavors of salad was outstanding. Service was also very good. Always have a fun time at Nick's.
Great food and service!!! Must get the asparagus fries!!! Warm potato salad and ribeye sandwich are top notch!
Food and service was very excellent. Will go back to this restaurant many times.
The food is always great, good quality. I had the fish sandwich, had the veggie burger both were delicious.
Great service and the food never disappoints.
Always amazing. Food was delicious and fresh. Serve was impecible.
Always excellent. Friendly and attentive service delivering elegant comfort food in a relaxed environment.
My husband was unhappy with his order of steak. For the price, the size of the steak was small and the amount of fries was small.
The service, however, was excellent!
Everything was great as always. Server was not up to the nicks standards that we normally receive when there. Never replaced silverware after appetizer, had to ask multiple times for things. Been trying hard during hard pandemic times to not make servers run and ask for everything at once but still had to make her run a bit when not getting things.
Excellent service and food
Emanuel took great care of us! The food at Nick’s is always great.
It was great! The food, the service, everything about this place I recommend
They didn't share they had time limits on tables for dining. Understand why, just would have liked that information prior to be seated. Menu was good as was the service. Decent distancing for outdoor/patio dining.
Super friendly staff. The service was awesome and my salad was fresh and so flavorful.
The food was very good but the portions have definitely shrunk down. Even the Drinks seemed a bit watered down to before, perhaps it was just this one time, but the food is tasty and of good quality overall. I want to give a shout out to Michael B our server who was excellent and attentive. Excellent Service made up for anything else.
Terrific as usual. Have never had a bad meal here
Great ambience. Food was amazing! Service was phenomenal. Our server was attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly.
Relaxing, good food and great service!
Fantastic food, excellent service and the restaurant was very clean. The staff was extremely friendly, accommodating and hardworking. Please do not close onsite dining. I will continue to patronize regularly if you stay open. These edicts from the governor are ridiculous. I will support your business if you stay open. Nick’s and South of Nick’s are two of my favorite restaurants anywhere, and I have dined at many high end / highly acclaimed restaurants. The level of service and quality of food are consistently top notch.
The food is always amazing and you can not go wrong with anything on the menu.
The staff is lovely as well.
We love this Nick's. And will continue to support this restaurant when we can.
Everything was excellent as usual. Our server was very attentive & gave us plenty of time to visit. Now that it’s winter, I suggest you bring out the heaters at lunchtime as well as dinner. All of us were chilled to the bone by the end of our meal, despite wearing jackets in anticipation of eating out front on the sidewalk.
Supporting our local restaurant (favorite restaurant) before another round of closures.
My favorite place to get ribs (no joking around when they say fall of the bone) and the best boozy coffee cocktail (Spanish Cafe Carajillo). We should have gotten dessert to go!!
