Nix / Martini Bar - Knickerbocker Hotel Ratings and Reviews
The waiter had very little knowledge of the menu and it was very challenging to get him to accommodate my child who was dining with us. Additionally, the duck dumplings were served very cold (almost frozen ) and were inedible. I do not recommend eating here.
Nix has outstanding service. Our group meets there once a month. The waiters are welcoming and efficient. They remember our favorites. The menu changes often so there frequently is something new to try. The plates are attractively arranged. The food is good. The price is moderate. The small room at the rear of the restaurant is excellent for a group. New décor makes the restaurant cheery and clean looking.
My fiance and I couldn't believe this place wasn't packed!!! The staff and food was amazing!!! This is the type of place we have to visit each time we're in town! The atmosphere was just what we needed and the service was phenomenal. We ate dinner and breakfast and every meal was memorable. Just go! It's worth it.
One of my favorite breakfast places in Chicago now. We stopped in this week for our 2nd visit and it was as good as the first time. Spinach and mushroom omelette is awesome. Rosemary potatoes are fantastic. Service is top notch. I may have to try to book my hotel intentionally close to this restaurant for next time.
The Nix is a restaurant located in the Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel. Though the menu is not extensive, this is not to say that I could not find something that interested me. It is typical American fair, including steak, hamburger, fish, pork, and chicken dishes. Truly, the hamburger was the most tempting plate (which is somewhat large and topped with bacon and a fried egg). However, the highlight of the dining experience revolved around the pierogi side dish which was made with the typical mashed potatoes and small amount of cheese. Our server convinced me to order them the Polish way (with a side of sour cream and a small sprinkle of parsley. They were great, including the slightly sweet coating of sugar and vanilla I detected on them!
The only thing worse than the food was the service. What a shame to see. Took us at least 5 minutes to be waited on and after that the food came out within 10 minutes, which wasn't bad, but certainly not good. Our waiter apparently left on an extended vacation after giving us the food (maybe he thought it was awful?) and we had to go to the hostess to get our bill. Naturally, our waiter then showed up to give us our bill. Nice.
