Needs to be ripped and rebuilt. A lot of the good was cold and really not very good. Squeezing past the A/C unit to go to the bathroom ... not great. Place falling apart. Far too expensive. Obviously surging on previous reputation. Our server was outstanding. Too good for the restaurant.

Went for their equivalent of the early-bird special. Expected it to have relatively modest European-sized portions, but the portions were substantial--especially the salmon and the dessert--and everything, including the appetizer, was delicious and beautifully presented. Going early in the evening (5:30) also meant that it was extremely peaceful and relaxing in the restaurant.

A forgotten gem in Downtown Atlanta.
We had not eaten at Nikolai's in several years. We went this past Saturday night and it was excellent. Food could not have been any better....the setting on top of the Hilton provides for amazing Atlanta views. We had the 4-course tasting menu and every course outdid the one before it. The Piroski's were so flavorful. Then the Scallops as well as the Crab Cake were cooked perfectly. We had the Rack of Lamb which was beyond tender and the TriggerFish was excellent. Desserts did not disappoint either. If you have not ventured to NR in some time - try it again....it has a new and updated look. The staff is second to none and on top of everything.

It was my wife's birthday. She requested to have a window side table in the OpenTable booking request. There was nothing available when you entered. They arranged a temporary table for me and moved us to a window side table after it become available. Entree portion is good. 4 course meal is great option.

I took my mother here merely off of photos as I found the restaurant via a Google search. The restaurant is beautiful and the food was impeccably prepared, presented and seasoned. The service was great, only exception was a couple somewhat long moments when the waiter didn't check back.

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!

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.

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.

This was such an intimate and romantic location! The food was divine, the atmosphere was easygoing with live jazz softly playing, and the wait staff were knowledgable and attentive. I would 10/10 go there again.
