Me and my wife ate there for our anniversary and we absolutely loved it, the service was great, the food was well worth the price, and the view was spectacular.

Celebrated our engagement here. Great experience! Our waitress was very welcoming and attentive, and the food was wonderful.

The views are spectacular, the food was very good and the staff was attentive. It was a lovely evening. I was unaware when we booked that they offer three, four or five course dining options at a fixed price but it worked out fine. Appetizers were fresh and tasty. The fillet I ordered could have been a little larger but was delicious. All desserts were yummy. I recommend and would go back.

For an expensive restaurant with such a great view and nice ambiance, it was a huge disappointment. Our waiter was not at all interested in taking care of his customers. He never once refilled our water glasses and it took 15 minutes to get a martini. The restaurant was not crowded at all. Once he delivered our food, we had to flag him down several tines to get drink refills.

Come here whenever I come to Atlanta for 30 years. Focus gras was perfect, lamb chops a 10 and the soufflé - a masterpiece. Don’t miss this place.. it’s an institution

Our first dinner at Nikolai's Roof was 36 years ago for our 1st anniversary. We came back a number of times over the years. Our last time was about 12 years ago. On that occasion, and only that occasion, we felt the menu had become a bit too esoteric, and not the same quality we had remembered. As a result we were hesitant to return.

But return we did on January 10th, 2018 for our 37th anniversary. And it was excellent! The food, the service, all exquisite! The look has been updated and the way they now charge for the meals is now a bit more "customary" (howbeit seemingly somewhat more affordable), but the quality is every bit what is was 36 years ago. The only thing missing is the attendants they used to have in the rest rooms which, frankly, I always thought was somewhat weird anyway.

Thank you Nikolai's Roof, and our waiters Vassil and Demetri. You guy did a terrific job! We will be back!

Nikolai's Roof did not disappoint for our date night. The city views are breathtaking; however, much of the skyline view is not seen from the main dining area given the side of the building it's on. That said, the view from the 30th floor was still quite amazing. The food and service is what you would expect for the price point. My girlfriend and I both enjoyed an appetizer, the sea bass, and a glass of wine. Total bill for the evening (with tip) came to about $150. Parking was also validated.

Wonderful evening and our server (Dimitri) was on point and attentive all night. Really made us feel special. The food was truly top notch and the chef achieved excellence despite being short staffed.

I will say that the greeter ignored us when we first walked in for a few minutes, because he was on the phone. Not even a hand gesture or a look despite us standing in the waiting area directly in front of him.

This is a great place for a reasonably priced fine dining experience, particularly for a date night or special celebration. Favorites were the crab, sweet potato, and coconut bisque as well as the the creme brulee. Service was outstanding. Would definitely return in the future.

Excellent as always! Every dish was vibrant, elegant, and full of flavor.
