Favorite restaurant in town. Dinner for 4 Saturday night, brought some out of town guests. Service was a little slower than usual. The restaurant was packed, a special that evening for Blink, we ordered off the regular menu. Everyone raved about the food, service was the only downside but not overly concerning.
Always good with 20 years of being a loyal customer
Enjoyed Blink weekend tasting menu. All dishes were delicious
An utterly amazing dining experience. Blink Cincinnati weekend. We lucked out in finding this gem. The price fix menu offerings were incredible. I thought it would be your typical, maybe more upscale, Italian dining experience. Quite the contrary. It was a delicious and memorable experience for our girl’s night out.
Great service but the food was disappointing for the price. The gnocchi was extremely oversalted. I would strongly prefer Sotto or primavista for other Italian options.
We had a wonderful meal and experience as always.
Wonderful food and great service! I would highly recommend.
We thoroughly enjoyed the evening before heading out to Blink. We especially appreciated the special 3 course meal for $40. Plenty of delicious food and a reasonable price. Our waiter was wonderful. Thank you!
Fantastic venue for a celebration. We are already looking forward to our next visit.
Really nice restaurant. Food was really good but a bit overpriced. Service excellent.
Where to begin? Well the bread basket was the most beautiful bread basket we have ever seen and totally worth the extra charge. And it tasted as good as it looked! We enjoyed the special Blink 3 course dinners. Our server was very attentive to us and provided very good recommendations and descriptions of the food. We want to go back and experience more of the amazing pastas and entrees. We will definitely be back to Nicola's!
i adore nicola’s, always have. last time i was there my dining companion was delayed and the waiters were so attentive to me. our food was beautiful and delicious - all split by the kitchen for us - and we chose our own pace for a leisurely special meal.
The food is good and consistent. If you go on a Monday night, do not expect good, if any service.
First time here. Was our anniversary, we both completely enjoyed it. Very impressed. Food and service we're outstanding. Highly recommend it.
Everything was perfect. Came in for my girlfriends birthday and couldn't have been happier. Had the scallop, the tempura shrimp and the veal to start and it felt like after every bite we were awkwardly leaning back moaning about how good it was. Our server Steven made great wine recommendations and turned us on to the potato gnocchi which is one of the best dishes I've ever had.
I went into the place with high expectations and they completely blew me away.
Great food but when making reservation I mentioned 35th anniversary and our table was next to busing station. Would have thought we would have had a better table.
Server, Megan, was exceptional. We had complex order of sharing several items and she handled all of it with good humor and professionalism. Couple this with one of best kitchens in the city and we had wonderful celebration with friends.
Most everything was very nice. Service very good, nice place to relax and enjoy a fine meal. The entire meal was great but when the pork loin arrived it looked and tasted like a bbq rib overcooked. I ate two or three bites.
I mentioned my disappointment but no response.
Certainly disappointed with the pork loin with no resolution.
I didn’t want the tip to reflect. I sensed the waiter had his hands tied.
What a great place. Every aspect of the experience was excellent. This felt like stepping into a Chicago or New York Italian restaurant because of the ambiance, the staff, the menu and the quality. This was our first time but it won’t be our last.
We had a wonderful time! I’m a celiac diner and they were easily able to accommodate me and explain what would be safe for me and what wasn’t. Can’t wait to come back again! Everything was phenomenal!
A wonderful evening! Fabulous dinner!! Chef Jack, you did it again! Service was Amazing!
Brad served us extremely well and the food was excellent!
Neither the food nor service was as memorable as previous visits
The food was exceptional. The gnocchi is a must have. John and his fellow bartender were very nice and accommodating.
Exellent food!!! love this place
Delicious meal once again!
Fixed price Restaurant Week combined great food with good value
We went to Nicola's for restaurant week and their menu was fabulous. We tried one of everything and we love that the three courses did not include dessert but rather a lovely salad course, pasta course and entree. We will definitely be back!
As always, the gnocchi was sublime. Actually the entire meal was perfectly prepared, served and enjoyed. Going during restaurant week made it even more delightful. This is a wonderful, reliably excellent restaurant.
Excellent food and excellent service. It’s a must try!
My steak was burned. Our server was so scattered. I had to ask him for my drink numerous times. Food was ok. Nothing special
Bread was cold
My husbands red snapper had no taste.
Our servers were very attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed sharing our experience with our friends on the patio. It was nice to be able to talk without excessive noise.
Nicolas is one of those restaurants that you know the cuisine will always be superb whether you order your past favorites or try something new. Service staff is also always excellent with well informed and personable individuals. We love the atmosphere and the location as even though we've patronized Nicolas since they opened, it always feels like our own intimate haven.
Nicolas is a true consistent gem.
Fabulous... excellent waiter that moved us to some more adventurous choices.
always enjoy dining with you, we appreciate the solid consistancy.
The restaurant week menu was amazing! I loved the crispy potato gnocchi and the Tagliatelle alla Bolognese! Yum!!
Fabulous dinner! We will definitely return. The food, the ambiance, the service - all were fantastic.
Each course was excellent. The only complaint - the servings were too large. Each course could be 20 - 30% smaller and be every bit as satisfying. I feel compelled to eat what I am presented with and feel guilty if I leave anything - which is why Restaurant week is awesome - you typically get a tasting. Nicola's gave us a feast! I have eaten a lot of sorbet - Nicola's was some of the best!
It is refreshing to go to a restaurant and actually be able to hear my wife. There are a number of nice bars I will never go to again due t the noise level - I want to talk with my guests.
Went for Cincinnati Restaurant Week! That was my first time joining in the Restaurant Week festivities and it was so worth it. Food on the pre-fix menu was fantastic, and the bread basket was to die for.
We had a wonderful evening celebrating my sister’s birthday. We took advantage of the Restaurant Week menu and enjoyed every course. Sarahi took excellent care of us!!! She was very knowledgeable of the menu and made recommendations as well. We will be back soon because I’m already craving the bread basket and gnocchi!
Food and Service was amazing as always. The staff goes out of their way to ensure an excellent dining experience.
