The food we had was very good, but the menu is VERY limited. I rarely eat beef, but had no choice. No salads to offer, no basic entree such as salmon, or anything else for people who don't want exotic type food, I would have had the pasta but could not get Gluten free. Maybe the cuisine was a little too creative for people who have a limited diet. We all had the beef which was delicious. Desserts were amazing!!

We try fine dining restaurants in Atlanta once a while but this place was disappointing. The scallops were loaded with SALT and none of entrees were memorable. Everything was just average- service, ambience and food.

Place has been around forever but still very good, a little Russian still but mostly French. Redecorated since I last went (may have been 10 years now) and is much lighter in decor- can't decide if better or not but regardless still very nice. Great views still of course. Good service and they still wear the Russian-looking uniforms. Service not as personal as I remember though, probably only (very minor) downside. Food was absolutely excellent, unbeatable, and the 3-course meal for $64 is even a pretty good- very good in fact considering the food quality.

Shoot up a glass elevator with amazing city views and arrive at Nikolai's Roof. The ambiance, menu and service was impressive. One of our favorite parts of the evening was the cheese trolley service. We were able to select amongst several goat and cow cheese options imported from Europe.

The restaurant is conducive to a romantic evening with perfect lighting and quite noise levels.

While the food was very good the overall experience was not. Our server was absent minded, we were served the wrong food and the valet was one of the worst I've experienced. The dining area is lovely with great views and the menu interesting but the several mishaps by our server diminished the enjoyment. As for the valet, plan on self parking since it took us almost a half hour for our vehicle to arrive after repeated prompts to the staff.

Environment, service and food was out of this world. Our server went out of her way to make our night special. We can't say enough great things about our experience and I think we have a new favorite place!!

The restaurant itself was very good food and service once we got there. the food was well prepared and everything was delivered at an enjoyable pace. The service from the moment we walked into the restaurant to when we left it was very friendly. They provided a special, complimentary dessert since it was our anniversary. The cocktail menu was not very imaginative, so we stuck with wine to start with and then a very nice bottle with dinner.

The experience getting to the restaurant and leaving could not have been more a polar opposite. The Hilton's valet service is the worst that I have ever experienced- very unorganized and ridiculously slow. This aspect was so bad that we have decided we will not be returning to Nickolai's in spite an enjoyable meal and view upstairs. When spending this amount you expect a pleasant experience from beginning to end and that wasn't the case.

The view of the Atlanta skyline will let the guest feel something is special about the space. The service is dignified allowing plenty of time to sit and enjoy the food as well as the view. The attention to detail over the food created an art worthy presentation, equaled by the taste. Others will try unique combinations and make a mess of it. Nikolai's Roof composed the delightful blend that marks a great restaurant.

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.

 (Atlanta)·Dined on January 10, 2018

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.

From the start to end, Nikolai's Roof is awful.
The restaurant is located at the top of the Hilton. My husband and I arrived and were confronted by the valet attendant (Nahome). He initially said that there was "no room" for our car, even when we explained that we were here for the restaurant. Then he walked into the lobby and back out (30 seconds) then magically there was room. Very strange and disconcerting. It was a foreshadowing of how awful this experience was going to be.

I booked Nikolai's Roof for my husband's birthday specifically because they have a view of his favorite building. I put a special note in our reservation that it was 1.) my husband's birthday and 2.) that we would like a table with a view of the specific building. My note was obviously not read. Why pay for a service that you are not going to use? If you are going to ignore or be so ignorant to not read guests' special requests then get off OpenTable.

When we asked the host about the valet situation, because we wanted reassurance about the safety of our car, he did everything but that. In fact, he actually made it worse and we almost left. The host was rude and made us feel like we were wasting his time when we were inquiring about the establishment he is representing.
We did arrive on time for our reservation, but did not receive our drinks till 20mins after we were sat. This was the pace for the entire evening, just terrible coursing.

The food is mediocre. We choose the 5 course menu, and nothing stood out. It was all just OK. For the price, the vegetables should be fresh, my beef tenderloin should have been cooked to the right temperature, and the dessert should not taste of freezer burn.

Nikolai's Roof is a perfect example of a tired restaurant that is staffed by bumbling idiots who do not take pride in their workplace. Do better.

Great atmosphere, excellent food and service. Wonderful and varied wine selections. The view is fantastic and the ambiance encourages intimate conversation and dining. Very attentive staff without being intrusive. Highly recommend Nikolai’s for special occasions, casual dining and business dinners. There is a warmth and caring attitude that is impossible to find anywhere else.

This Atlanta oldie is still top of the line with elegance and quiet, competent service. The complimentary valet parking makes this in- hotel location accessible for locals. Renovated decor is pleasant and understated. The unique menu offers variety and our choices were delicious and light. Even after the very melt in your mouth Gran Marnier soufflé we did not feel that we over ate. Loved the three course pricing. Atlantans should return to this old friend to remind themselves of what the term “fine dining” means.
