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.
