A/C was not working. Kind of spoiled our romantic dinner a little. Food was good, but not spectacular. The filet mignon was a large portion and perfectly cooked, but the sauce was non-descript. Chocolate symphony bar was exquisite, but by the end of the dessert, it felt like it needed some salt or tang to contrast the sweetness.

A little disappointed by this Atlanta “icon.” Service was fine, but the food was underwhelming for what you are paying. Place was hot as hell too, AC not working. Wouldn’t really recommend it.

The food was fantastic--Chef Stephanie is truly gifted. However, the A/C was not working and it was extremely hot in the restaurant. This did impact our birthday dinner celebration.

My husband and i decided to make reservations at Nikoloi's Roof.
The restaurant ws extremely hot, bad waiter (Ben) and the worst duck bresst my husband has ever experienced. The dissatisfaction with the duck breast was expressed to the waiter and he stated "That's how its cooked" i would never recommend this restaurant to any of my friends or family. Hopefully the establishment will take heed to the negative reviews and correct their service and food quality.

Had 4 course chef meals. Filet was delicious. Service was attentive and pleasant but server missed several opportunities to upsell menu...didn’t ask about vodka, coffee, after dinner drinks, etc. Some we would have liked to have had but passed on. Server did call to have our valet parked car ready which was nice.

Fantastic 3 course dinner with a lovely view of our city. Loved the peroshskis! They were flexible with substitutions on the entree and the chocolate soufflé was delightful. Even though the AC was out (not their fault) for half of our meal, I still loved the beautiful experience. Will return!

Everything was okay, but for the very high price we would have expected everything to be excellent. Very limited menu. Beautiful presentations.

This was a first visit for us. My wife and I enjoyed our anniversary and my birthday at Nikolai’s. We have lived in Georgia for only 5 years and have not explored much to what Atlanta has to offer. We googled places to eat in Atlanta. This place came with amazing reviews and even a YouTube video from an Atlanta eats episode. The night was very special. The food was well prepared at top level service. Thank you to Tyler and staff for making this night special. We highly recommend this place and will be back.

Overall it was a great experience and ambience. The atmosphere was very sexy and a good place for special occasion. It was pricey given the plated amount of food. I say it should have been about $20 less, nevertheless I guess restaurants can charge what they want. Lol.

I reserved this restaurant after reading the reviews and i was disappointed with the service. The food taste, flavor, temperature and presentation was good BUT the service was poor. There was no one at the main entrance to greet guests at the door and had to wait almost 5 minutes before someone showed up.
There was a long wait times between getting the menu, getting the drinks, appetizers and eventually the main meal. Everything showed up very late after ordering but at the end of the night, the bill promptly came up. I had requested an anniversary note written on my desert and that was not done. I will not be coming here again.

Excellent Food and service. Had the 3 course meal with Pieroskis, Salmon and Souffle. With a very nice Pinot Noir. Waiter was prompt, effective and knowledgeable. Great view on top of all that.

My husband and I had a date night. Wonderful venue for date night. The view is amazing ask for a window table. Beautiful view of Atlanta and beyond. You can see Stone Mountain during the day light and the beautiful city lit up at night
The food is absolutely amazing.m the presentation, the flavor, the combinations so good. The filet you could cut with a fork. You are never rushed. The courses come out slowly so you can enjoy them and have time for conversation between them. Wonderful experience very time I have dined at Nikolai’s. I give the service 5 stars as well as the food, great experience

View was incredible. Sad to see people with the best seats and view staring at the phone throughout dinner. Service was sub par. People seated long after us had their drinks, bread and appetizers long before we did. I was excited to try this place and I was very disappointed.

My wife, daughter and I visited Nikolai's Roof recently to celebrate our daughters 13th Birthday. We had been to the restaurant once before a few years back. Ever since that original visit our daughter would compare every Steak Dinner she ate to the one she experienced at Nikolai's. So when we asked her where she would like to have her Birthday dinner of course she exclaimed, NIKOLAI'S! We visited the restaurant for the occasion this past Saturday night and were again extremely impressed with everything. We each enjoyed the Three Course Meal. My wife added the Wine Pairing option with each course and each she raved about more than the last. My wife and I started with the Scallops and our daughter had the Crab Cake all of which were outstanding! For our Entrees my wife and daughter both opted for the Beef Tenderloin and I enjoyed the Duck Breast. Once again our daughter raved about the fact that it was by far the best she's had. My daughter and I had the Godiva Souffle for desert while my wife very much enjoyed the Coconut Panna Cotta.

Not only was the food we enjoyed at another level but the service is second to none and the view from every table is incredible. We could not have been happier with this experience and it will be a fond memory when we think back on our daughters becoming a teenager. When you experience such an incredible night on a special occasion and the establishment you choose exceeds every expectation it makes for great memories.

If you are experiencing Nikolai's for the first time you do need to be aware that with all great experiences come a price. Nikolai's is well worth every penny but keep in mind it is not the cheapest dinner destination in Atlanta. That being said you will be hard pressed to enjoy a similar dinning experience at any price and be this satisfied!
Well done Nikolai's, you're consistency over the years as one of the best in Atlanta will keep you on the top of this families list for Top Notch restaurants!

Perfect dinner. Great atmosphere and view from top of the Hilton Hotel. Food was excellent. Each course was just enough to avoid that “stuffed” feeling. Yes, I will be back. Already looking forward to my next time.

Nikolai's Roof was a very pleasant experience. We had delicious martinis at the bar made with their infused vodkas before a delicious dinner. Our server, Morgan, gave us the best service I think I've ever had anywhere. She was truly delightul. An acoustic guitarist played the entire 3.5 hours we were there, adding to the ambiance. We were seated at the window so we had a great view. Lovely evening!

My husband and I went to Nikolai's to celebrate our anniversary with a nice dinner . The staff was very friendly and the host walked us to a table with a nice window view . However, as soon as we sat down we noticed how warm it was in the restaurant and it began to get more uncomfortably warm during dinner. because of how hot it was getting we wanted to just hurry with our meal and get out . We did ask the waiter if they could turn on the AC and the waiter informed us that the AC was not working and he too was burning up . It actually made us feel a bit better knowing that it wasnt just us and that their was a problem with the AC . the ambiance was nice , however I think it would be nicer if they played some light music in the background , the restaurant was very quiet , the only thing you heard was other ppl conversations and utensils clanking against the dishes. the quietness almost made it feel awkward. The food was pretty good . I had the beef tenderloin and my husband had the duck . we also ordered the lump crab cake - which I wasnt a fan of - it had blueberries in it and it was strange to me, I did not enjoy it ..Our desert was the coconut Pana which was good . Our waiter came back out after we had our dessert with a half frozen banana pie and said that he didnt realize it was our anniversary until someone told him ( we added a note with our RSVP) , the banana pie reminded us banana baby food (frozen) it was very sweet and was not that good to us . Despite the very warm room on a hot summer day . We are open to returning one day and giving it another shot

Great experience overall! We went for our anniversary, and wanted a quiet, intimate setting, so Nikolai's was perfect. The food was excellent and well-plated, the wine was one of the best we've ever had, and the view was beautiful. Our waiter, Scott, was awesome - he was attentive without being intrusive, and gave us great recommendations on menu choices. We'll definitely go again!

Ben was an awesome server!!! Everything was perfect until a group of young ladies came in and changed the whole feel. It was amazing time and amazing views as well. We did the three course meal which a person like me with gastric sleeve worked out very well. PRICED VERY WELL :)

The food was amazing. It’s an incredible value as well. We got the 5 course meal and tried 9 different items between the both of us.
Little perk, they’ll validate your parking and have it pulled up for you.
