I have always received great service at Nikolai’s Roof, however, on this visit our waiter provide subpar service. It almost felt like he did not want to serve us, maybe it was because we had a voucher. It left me feeling unwanted! The food was great as usual.

The food portions were very small. There was a large groups seating at an adjacent table and they were very loud which didn't help the ambiance. The server was polite but it took more than 2 hours for serving 2 people with a minimal order. The value and experience was not worthy of considering coming to this restaurant again!

Nikolai's Roof is without a doubt one of Atlanta's iconic restaurants. There service is unparalleled. Our servers Scott and Stan made certain we wanted for nothing. Their recommendations were spot on. The lamb, sea bass and tenderloin were prepared to perfection. What a great venue for a birthday or in our case a graduation dinner.

We enjoyed our meal very much.
Parking and entering the hotel was not so much fun, too many people. We had to park and walk in light rain. Leaving meant walking again in the rain, could not turn into valet parking!
We would eat there again, but maybe not on a week-end.

I took my husband to celebrate our anniversary. It had been awhile and the place has been 'modernized'. instead of being transported back to early tsarist Russia decorating with all the opulence, it now a tastefully but subdued modern décor. the food wwas still wonderful and the view spectacular, but the overall experience and 'specialness' of the restaurant was lost.

It was ok. Our 37th anniversary. No one asked us if there was an occasion even though we exchanged cards and gifts at the table.
We brought a drink from the bar to the table. Paid at the bar. Then found the drinks added to our meal bill.
Had a nice 3 course meal including dessert. Our waiter didn’t offer or suggest coffee.
Never asked if we wanted another drink.
The food is good. And maybe there are better waiters there. Ours did not make us want to return.

I have known about Nikoli's Roof since the 80s when people used to wait 5-6 hours to get a table and I have always wanted to dine here, but thought it was out of my budget. We always chose other locations for special occasions for fear of extremely high prices at the world renowned restaurant , but what a surprise to find out that was not the case. The food is original to them, service was amazing, absolutely delicious and no where near the cost of a Ray's or Mckendrick's for a nice dinner. My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here and cannot stop telling people how great it was and I am so glad I was able to finally experience "The Roof". Additionally, it is nice to find a place in Atlanta where people wear nice clothes to dinner and you are rewarded for doing your part with a AAA 5 Diamond Experience (Don't ruin this Atlanta and start wearing Jeans and no Jackets like happens elsewhere). So pull out your nice clothes and go have an amazing experience with staff like Vassil, who is Bulgarian, not Russian, :) and are proud of the experience they provide, you will not be disappointed. Thank you to the entire team!!!!

Travelzoo offer of $119 for 4-course meal for 2 from the chef's seasonal menu, and 2 glasses of wine, saved $31 from the normal 4-course menu price, plus the value of the wines ($20-$32 more, depending upon what you choose). There were plenty of good choices for each course.
Complimentary valet parking is always included, and was prompt and convenient on a rainy night. The waitress also brought another complimentary birthday dessert with candle for me. Service was excellent, as was the view. I wasn't a fan of the beef tenderloin entree, simply because the sauce was too sweet for me.

I would have to rate the dining experience as one of the best if not the best dining experiences that I have ever enjoyed. The wait staff was excellent, the view was incredible and the food was exceptional.

We were there to celebrate our 10th Anniversary and both of us said that it would be a regular place for special occasions. Having traveling all over the US and abroad, it was one of the best dining experiences that I have had.

Amazing food for our 30th wedding anniversary. It was our first time at Nikolai's Roof. It is a wonderful vista on the 30th floor of the Hilton in Atlanta. The waitress was perfectly attentive and described all the dishes. She also helped me choose a good wine. We tried dishes we have never had before and everything was wonderful. All the dishes were flavorful and unique. We got free valet parking and our travelzoo voucher saved us a good amount. I only regret that I did not request a window table. Next time I will! Here is what we ordered:
Braised Beef Piroshki, Diver Scallop, Seared Foie Gras, Magret Duck Breast , Herb Crusted Lamb Chops, Grand Marnier Soufflé , White Chocolate Crème Brûlée, plus we also received a piece of chocolate cheesecake that I could only taste. I was too full!

My husband and I drove down from Kennesaw during rush hour for a special dinner at Nikolai’s—our first time dining here, and we’ll worth the effort. The waitstaff were super friendly and knowledgeable, the cocktails were tasty, and the food was exceptional (especially the Grand Marnier soufflé)! We’ll definitely be back.
