We went there for our Valentine's, made reservations way in advance - beautiful restaurant. They placed us in this back room that had no atmosphere, tables and chairs looked cheap and seemed messy from previous diners, no windows and large projector TV - sports bar? We went there when we dated back in the 80's and smaller place than the present location. Food was excellent as I remember but felt like we were not even in the restaurant, not valued customer, just pushed to a little back room for overflow! Very disappointed.

My wife and I visited Nikko on Valentine's Night. We had a great experience and enjoyed the food.

The food is not that great for the price. The music was too loud.

Love this place! The atmosphere is very fun, energetic, almost clubby (I've only been there on Saturday nights). Every time I've been there, the DJ plays the best songs! Their sushi is the best I've had. Perfect place for a get together or get a round of drinks!

Be very careful how you order at this restaurant. We ordered a $35 bottle of saki. Our waiter came back and told us they were out of the $35 but that we could get "the 50". We mistakenly assumed he meant $50. No- he meant 50L - which was $130! When we got the bill it was $330 for 4 of us. Regardless of how good the food may have been (and it was just ok, not fantastic) - it spoiled my appetite for going back to Nikko ever again.

the music was so loud, it was impossible to have a conversation. For that reason, I would never go back for dinner.

We had a HORRIBLE service experience with Stephanie. It took 30 minutes for her to initially come to our table, and additional 20 for the drinks to come out, the food to take more

Went on a Saturday night over a long weekend (mlk day weekend) and the music was very loud, could barely talk to anyone at the table and it was very crowded by our booth and there was not much room to walk out and go to the bathroom. But this is my 4th time here and the food is fantastic, moderate value but still fantastic, and that will be the reason I keep returning, but probably never again on a weekend

A busy night with multiple large groups. We got a seat in the corner and were largely neglected. The owner danced by us several times with her famous cowboy hat on, but never even looked at us. From the beginning drinks, napkins and utensils, to the bill, we had to grab our waitress and ask for service. The food has always been great and the ambience loud, I will try them again, hopefully just a bad night.
