Came to Nikolai's to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday. We were not disappointed. The service was impeccable. The ambiance was amazing. Each tasting in between courses was a pleasant surprise. I appreciated having the option of multiple courses that could be mixed and matched. We had several appetizers with 2 entrees. Everything was delightful. I would visit Nikolai's again!

My boyfriend and I visited Nikolai's Roof for the first time this weekend for our date night. To say our expectations were far exceeded would be an understatement. Not only did we have the best table in the house with a great view of the skyline, but our server, Vassil, was nothing short of impeccable, and our food was absolutely phenomenal. The foie gras was to die for, and I cannot even describe how unbelievably delicious the braised boar ragout was. We cannot wait to come back again!

Love the choices of 3, 4, or 5 course meals. I went with 3 courses and was comfortably full. Great wine selection. Service was superb.

I really wish the restaurant would update the ambience. It feels like a leftover hangover from the 1970s. The bar area is over lit with absolutely zero ambience. And the dining room barely has any ambience. The staff was kind and professional the food was excellent but it’s sort of marred by this second rate design and second grade mood.

This was a celebration for my wife's 71st birthday, and we wanted a special evening. Overall it was a bit disappointing. While the view is spectacular, the patrons in sweatshirts and hoodies were a bit unexpected at a high level establishment. We had the 5-course Chef's Tasting menu. The wine and piroshki and appetizer were very good, but the main was not. My wife's halibut needed to be cut with a knife and while my lamb chop was good, it was not exceptional. Desert was lacking in flavor, and while the "Happy Birthday" plate was cute, the bread pudding it contained was small and not great. On the bright side, our server Scott did his best to provide outstanding service. Overall, this restaurant is showing its age, but even so, it did wind up a very nice evening experience as Nikolai's Roof still serves up romance and atmosphere.

This was a very memorable and romantic experience! Our server Stan was very attentive and the food was excellent. We had a beautiful window seat and view of the city. The Godiva soufflé at the end was superb. I will surely go back the next time I'm in Atlanta.

The food was very good...Our service could have been a little better as Cindy didn't really interact with us. She gave very dry service... We give praise on customer service and creating a memorable experience this was not great customer service...

Everything was great, minus the couple sitting next to us who we’re completely inebriated and fell asleep at their table .. Restaurant staff acted like everything was fine. Really off putting for such a high end restaurant ..

Nickolai's Roof should be on everyone's list when coming to Atlanta. Not only is the food wonderful - the view of Atlanta is also worth the trip. Ask for Scottie as your server and you will not be disappointed.

We come to Nikolai's Roof at least once a year. It is always a memorable experience.

Some staples are available; they are recommended, but other selections are readily available and also well worth trying.

Staples include;
Piroshki
Seared Foie Grois
Lamb
Souffle

Always worth the money and time. Nikolai's Roof is an experience.

This was a very pleasant 1st time dining experience. The view from our table was magnificent and the atmosphere was quiet while not stuffy. Our waitress knew every detail of the 3-5 course menu. Cocktails and wine were excellent. Will dine again.

The food was fantastic! 4 of us went and shared bites of each other's meals and it was all wonderful. I got the duck and it's some of the best I've ever had. The service was great and the view of the city at night was beautiful. This is a great special occasion place.

We enjoyed dinner and unfortunately, we became short on time for our concert and unable to have dessert with our 4 course meal. I feel like we should have let our waiter know ahead of time but we did not and had to rush out. Food was wonderful and my daughter and I enjoyed trying new dishes.

The place is nice and quiet. Service is very good. The only problem is the food. The starters and the deserts were very good. For the main course, 4 of us we ordered 2 lamp chops and 2 sheared sea bass. Both the lamp chops is very tough ( a lot of hard cutting ) and tasteless. Just pieces of meat with no favor, not even the taste of lamp. The shear bass is slightly over cook and also no taste (maybe forzen too long). We get this dinner through TravelZoo special deal. If we have to pay full price, it would not be worth the money.

Felt like a restaurant selling non gourmet food on fancy plates and charging a lot for it. everything was OK with the exception of lamb entree and deserts which were awful, but not worth the amount of money we spent. Service was ok not great either. just a very weird dinning experience where i felt like we were on the show punked. and someone was about to walk out and let us know we were on camera

The view from Nikolai's Roof was fantastic and the food was very good. Unfortunately, the service was somewhat confused: chef's appetizer being delivered twice, cheese course being brought before the entree course, the vintage of the wine not matching that on the wine list, etc. The meal was nice, but some attention does need to be paid to service details.

The food and the service were both outstanding. The ambiance is relaxing and the views of downtown Atlanta make for a great date night spot with your significant other.
