This place was incredible. Awesome food and our waiter who was from Russia was awesome, patient, friendly and professional. He answered all our questions and was very understanding of my soy allergy and made sure that I enjoyed the experience with delicious food, dessert and a great glass of wine. I love this place and would highly recommend it:)

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.

Everyone devoured their meals and the price was reasonable given that it was an elegant fine dining experience! In addition, the view of the city at night from the restaurant is spectacular. I highly recommend it and would go back again!

Stan was our waiter. He was nothing short of superb. He provided us with the best service at a restaurant we have received in a very long time. He was efficient, timely, never hovered, always there when you needed him and others there to help him were cordial and kind and genuine, as was he. I'd compare the service to a place like Bone's but Bone's service has on some occasions been pretentious and overbearing. Stan orchestrated our evening in pitch perfect style.

The food, on the other hand was completely forgettable. The escargot was bland, lacking the simple basics of a good garlic flavor and butter. The entrees were not so much. The lamb chops were soggy and luke-warm. The accompaniments were good. The filet mignon was better than the lamb but still not so much. The one exception to the food quality was the gran mariner soufflé. It was out of this world good. We went to the restaurant because we bought a travelzoo special. We actually bought two, so we'll have to go back. It's a lovely place run by real nice people and there is a great view, the cocktails were good, so, what's not to like...except to food? We'll select different items from the menu and hope for the best.

This place really is a hidden gem. Loved every minute of the experience! Our waiter was very attentive and not sure if the other man we saw a lot was a food runner and/or waiter but he was simply a joy.
All of the dishes were amazing! Wasn't a huge one of the escargot dish as a whole, but I can appreciate it.
Everything came out at a great rate where we weren't rushed but we didn't have to wait long either.

So down to the moment I got a call to confirm reservation to us arriving with a pleasant smile from the host. Everything was simply amazing and flawless!

From the moment we stepped off the elevator, Nikolai’s Roof exceeded our expectations. The host had such a warm greeting for us. We were given a special table with a great view of Atlanta. Our waiter, Vassil N. was excellent. From the wine, to the bread, to our three course meal - we could not have been more pleased. Highly recommend this gem in Atlanta!

We had not been to Nicolai's Roof for quite some time. We enjoyed the food there years back, but there was a overbearing formality about the venue and service that was oddly unsettling. Now the restaurant boasts a relaxed elegance and a graceful charm that is inviting. The views, as always, are a joy and the interior of the restaurant is beautiful, yet subtle. And food is amazing. My wife and I shared Piroshki followed by starters of seared foie gras and diver scallops. For our entrees we chose basted duck breast and herb crusted lamb chops. Throughout the presentation of the dishes were appetizing and creatively plated. And ur server Staneslous, Stan, was a delight being both attentive and appropriately friendly. We found Nicolai's a truly an elegant and enjoyable dining experience worthy of any special occasion. And try the Grand Marnier Soufle. It is outstanding!

I was disappointed in Nikolai's Roof. We had eaten there several times many many years ago and remembered the wonderful food, fabulous service and luxurious decor that was highlighted by the view of Atlanta.

We arrived and were seated by the windows with a lovely view. Our napkins were placed in the women's laps but seeing as we all had on dark clothes I was surprised we were not offered black napkins. We passed around a single iPad that contained the drink menu and decided on cocktails. Before our drinks had arrived the waitress wanted to take our dinner order. We declined, and then waited a total of 30 minutes for our cocktails. After enjoying our drinks for a while, our waitress returned to take our dinner order. She was pleasant but seemed overwhelmed. The food was average, nothing specific to recommend.

Overall the decor, food and service was average. It could have been any restaurant in Atlanta or any large city. I would not recommend Nikolai's Roof when there are other places try in Atlanta.

Nikolai's Roof does not disappoint. I hadn't been to Nikolai's since before the remodel (years ago) and I was just as satisfied as I had been my first time. The atmosphere, service, food and quality is unmatched.

Every single thing was amazing!
