they are closed down
Unfortunately Nicole's has close for business effective 01-Jan-2017, but they have not been removed from OpenTable. We reserved via the App and drove 20 mins only to find an empty parking lot and note taped to the front window.
We had heard this was a fantastic restaurant and the OpenTable ratings appeared to support. We only wish we had gone there sooner.
Meanwhile, please update to remove from OpenTable.
We are sorry that they have closed. This was a great place for unique beer choices, excellent comfort food, and knowledgeable wait staff. The Manhattan cocktail menu was interesting and the drinks were made to perfection. We are going to miss Nicole's Ten and hope they reopen or reinvent the restaurant.
Went there with my fiancé on Christmas eve. The manager greeted us at the door and was very welcoming. Our waitress Robin was a real pro. Fantastic. Friendly, knowledgeable, always there when we needed her. Great time!
Love this place. The food is great and there are many interesting choices. The service is friendly and professional. I was so sad to learn it is closing on New Years Eve.
While Nicole's Ten lived up to it's consistently amazing reputation, it was a sad occasion saying goodbye to a local favorite. I highly recommend checking this place out before it closes to experience the amazing food and wonderful staff!
Can't decide whether to love this place or not. Problem is it's frustratingly inconsistent. The first time we ate there it was great, and we went back a few times. But recently it's been out of this world one night and another you wonder if the staff communicates with each other. Saturday night (12/3) was the latter. Got there and waited behind another couple at the hostess station. They didn't have reservations and hostess informed them that the dining room was "fully booked" and therefore a long wait. They left. We had a reservation, were seated, and noticed several empty tables -- that were never filled.
Our server was very personable and outgoing. Recommended a great drink for my wife and made several good beer recommendations for me. For appetizers, we ordered the charcuterie (very good) and their take on poutine (disappointing - potato chips with gravy and cheese curds, and barely warm). Main courses were monkfish (good) and pork saltimbocca (fair). Problem with the pork was that on the menu it was listed as a 14 oz. veal "porterhouse," and when I ordered our server apologized and said they'd run out of veal but had substituted pork. Fine by me. But 1) when it came out it was barely tepid, and certainly not hot and 2) charging the same price for a small boneless pork chop as a veal porterhouse? Really? Doesn't seem right. Dessert - chocolate peanut butter pie - was very good too.
Should also note that on other occasions we've had their lobster mac & cheese, which is just amazing.
Sadly, that might be the last time we dine here. It's just too inconsistent to spend that kind of money on food that's hit or miss.
Great dinner & service!
Nicole's Ten continues to be one of our absolute favorite local restaurants. The menu had some changes and additions that we tried, and they were excellent, but the old standbys (e.g. their epic lobster mac and cheese) are still there as well. Their wait staff, as always, remain quietly attentive and enthusiastic, always ready to offer helpful suggestions and recommendations if asked, but never in-your-face or intrusive.
Overpriced and food options not great. My pot roast was 90% pasta and very little meat.
Second glass of wine was delivered after we were done with diner and starting desert should have sent it back.
Nicole's is always great and we love their small sharing plates.
Food and drinks were amazing. The MAC and cheese is to die for.
The chef's were either unable or unwilling to modify the menu for someone who is lactose intolerant.
Awesome as Always. Our server Sean was Great and very helpful. We opted for something different this visit. The Chef did not disappoint. Food was very tasty. The Manager Nel was Busy but still had time to say Hi. The whole staff is wonderful. We look forward to returning soon.
Food and service are excellent. Nice place to go with friends. It's our favorite local place to go for an always consistent excellent meal.
the restaurant serves no bread with dinner , which I felt was strange , my water glass was never refilled and was empty most of dinner , my dinner was supposed to avocado in it , I found I tiny piece which was disappointing , I had a better experience a few months earlier ,
Food was good, service great, overall good experience
I've lived in the area for over 20 years and had never gone to Nicole's 10. They changed their menu since I last researched them and their current menu is unique and looks yummy. I went with two friends (man and woman) and we all loved the food. The service was very good and friendly. The bathrooms are very clean (helps you to imagine a clean kitchen). We had a moderate dinner--4 alcoholic drinks, 3 appetizers, 3 meals, 2 coffees, 1 desert and 2 diet cokes---that cost $160 +$32 tip = $192. So, it's pricey but we didn't mind because it was a pleasant surprise and well worth it. I will visit again for sure and recommend to friends.
This was my second time there. The calamari was delicious. I'll definitely return
SORRY TO REPORT THAT NICOLE'S 10 HAS CLOSED. SUCH A SHAME. THANK YOU FOR MANY MEMORABLE MEALS!! 1/1/17
Once again nicoles 10 reinvents its menu with great success! While keeping diners favorite large plates, nicoles has added many small plate options in addition to its already existing ones.
Their old favorite lobster bisque remains (thank god, a more delicious bisque is hard to fine) and their onion soup is a fantastic meal in itself. Their new spin on a lobster roll is quite tasty and full of lobster, more like an open faced sandwich. Always inventive and fun, nicoles 10 remains one of our favorite places to dine. (and we gladly make the 40 minute drive!)
As always, our dinner at Nicole's was a pleasurable experience. My infused Manhattan was near perfect, I miss the dirty cherries. My husband and son enjoyed the beer selection. We each tried something new off the menu, so many interesting choices makes it difficult to have a favorite dish. Dessert menu is as creative as the dinner menu. I had the most delicious lava cake, served with real vanilla ice cream. My husband had the carrot cake, which he claims is the best he has had anywhere.
But it's not just the food and service, it's the welcoming , cheerful and friendly attitude of the entire staff that brings us back.
This place was great. I will definitely be going back.
Food and service good. Weird ambiance. Spread-out seating in multiple rooms. Background music (quiet piano) did not jive with the vibe of the restaurant.
Went with friends. AMAZING. Menu was unique with crazy options. Waiter was very helpful with discuss all options. (even brought out a tasting menu). Food was outstanding. Great place and will be going back.
Had been wanting to try it for several months. For some reason I thought the place was smaller than it was, Nice size bar area and several smaller dining areas, but bigger than expected. Staff was amazing, Hosts, Bartender, and Wait staff. Great Craft Beer selection. Well prepared food, I had the Swine O'Mine and it was excellent. We almost did the Tapas option but with 5 guests we opted for a couple of Apps to share (including Angry Tots!) and each ordered a meal. Will definitely be back.
We had a wonderful evening. Live the food and ambiance
Two excellent seafood dishes on the restaurant's ingenious and entertaining menu, served with courtesy and efficiency, left nothing to be desired.
Always friendly and accommodating. They are knowledgeable and attentive. The food options are varied and delicious. Have been there many times now and am never disappointed.
What a pleasant surprise! The exterior of this restaurant doesn't offer much to admire, but once inside, we were so impressed by the food and the service! The manager, Nell, greeted us warmly and our waiter (I'm so sorry! I don't recall his name...) was friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. The menu is clever and creative. All of the appetizers seemed so appealing to me and when I asked the waiter about ordering a couple of them for dinner instead of a traditional entree, he suggested the "sharing menu." What a great idea! We selected a variety of items (7) from a pre-selected list of all different appetizer options and enjoyed every bite! The shared menu is $45 per person and includes a drink for each of us from the bar. We thought it was a great deal. All of the portions were quite large and there was more than enough food for us to share. We even brought home some leftovers. We had Way Big Asian salad, which was lightly dressed and so fresh, the artisan mac & cheese (yummy comfort food), shark bite calamari (perfectly fine, but not my favorite), 1 each of the 3 barrio bends (3 different tacos, all delicious), Asian Carrozza (a grilled cheese sandwich), Snap, Crackle, Duck (sort of a chicken nugget, but duck), & Drunken sliders (the best thing we ate). We'll definitely return!!
The staff at Nicole's 10 is very friendly and knowledgeable.
They all show a great passion in their work and in their offer (in both food and drinks).
The food quality is outstanding.
