Bistronomy by Nico Downtown
Look for dishes like duck confit steamed buns, tuna tartare, escargot dumplings, and steak du boucher on Bistronomy’s menu, which Romo developed as an homage to the food he’s cooked since arriving in Charleston in 2007.

We loved the restaurant and they gave us lots of attention and helped us celebrate a special anniversary. Owners friendly. Food, service and environment very good. Will return and recommend.
My husband, and I, stopped in for lunch today and had an exceptional experience from start to finish. Jackson took great care of us and his attention to detail was fantastic. We shared 4 different items on the menu and couldn't choose a favorite because we loved everything. We'll definitely be back again soon!
Because of the pandemic we ate outside. It was comfortable and had a makeshift ambiance. Food and device and value were excellent. Next time I’m eating inside...which is stunning!!
Best meal in Charleston thus far. Liked the space as well .Tries several rated better and was disappointed
The baguette is perfection. We could have continued eating multiple loaves for a meal! Yeah, yeah carbs, we know. But this one is worth it! We were not as pleased with the calamari appetizer. It was very small and not to our liking, but it may be for someone else. I had the scallops for dinner and my husband had the bouillabaisse. The scallops were perfectly cooked and the accompanying roasted vegetables were caramelized and delicious. My husband said that the bouillabaisse (white-sauced, not red) was also good. The dessert was beyond good. We had the chocolate mousse with a chocolate shell on top and it was a chocolate lovers dream! One of the best dinners that we have had for a while. We will be returning.
We had a delightful birthday dinner for my husband. The food and wine were delicious and the service was outstanding. We will be back!
Lots of great small plates, very flavorful menu. A little on the pricey side for the portion size.
I thought the restaurant was beautiful and everyone who worked in the place was so energetic. I am looking forward to a return visit when we are back in Charleston.
Sausage stuffed quail over braised Artichokes. Sublime. one of the best dishes in Charleston. Nice Bottle of burgundy.
Absolutely loved it, would highly recommend. great location, very good service and better food
Bistronomy is a great addition to Charleston’s food scene. Apps, main course, dessert and drinks are all thoughtfully crafted and delicious. I was very impressed with the starters, the escargot dumplings, calamari escabeche goat cheese spring rolls! so unique! Wine list is well curated also has a great happy hour!
A perfect birthday dinner! The scallops were mind-blowing. Thank you everyone!
Outstanding service, ambiance and every single item
Read my Yelp review. This restaurant can compete with the top French restaurants in chicago
We enjoyed creative, extraordinary dinning experience. The atmosphere was live and inviting. The service was outstanding. 5 stars .. we can’t wait to go back.
We have been to Nico's in Mt. Pleasant a number of times and the food, service and ambiance is.excellent. although the food and service was superb the.location with finding a parking space and noise level is not acceptable. We expected better.
We had another amazing meal and fantastic time! Justin was an excellent server that took exceptional care of us. The meal was off the chart good! Customer service excellence to say the least! We’ll be back soon!
Really good cassoulet. Enjoyed the night. Good service
Beautiful spot awesome food and top notch servers.
Went there for my daughter's bday. Food was awesome, great service and ambience.
We will definitely be back!!
This is the 2nd time we have dined here and the 2nd time we have loved our experience...Justin was our waiter and couldn’t have been more knowledgeable and helpful while we celebrated a family birthday.
My only recommendation would be candles on the table and some banquette for the table(it’s French, after all). However the banquette on the menu...highly reco as well. Thank you Bistronomy!
Delicious food...great service.
Great as always!! Love the wine selection!!
Lovely outside patio setting, warm and cozy, even on a chilly February night. Food was delicious, and service was top notch. We even received a quick wine lesson, and learned something new about how to select French wines! Perfect night off for a couple of moms looking to relax. Thank you!
I always go to another downtown restaurant just for their crème brûlée...but Bistronomy is the top winner in my book! Because we were celebrating a birthday, had to order the chocolate mousse as well. I actually put the two on my spoon together and ooh la la! The braised lamb shank is absolutely terrific, very tender! Highly recommend Bistronomy! Service was perfect...we were well taken care of and even met Chef Nico on the way out. Will definitely return to try the octopus and already made a reservation at Nico’s in Mt. P for another bday celebration!! :)
Food was amazing will be back so many more things on the menu to try had a lamb shank special over lo mein and the muscles for an appetizer.
excellent service and food
we tried 4 or 5 small plates all were outstanding
especially the pate'
a little pricey but worth it
Great all around. Lovely atmosphere
The food was good but with all the options you have in Charleston this wouldnt even make my top 15 list.
The food was sublime, service on point...the manager even brought an appetizer because he said "the kitchen is dragging a bit." We had a lovely French Pinot Noir suggested by the server...all in all a FANTASTIC experience!
We definitely will go back!
One word. INCREDIBLE! the food is phenomenal and the drinks were even better! Special shout-out to Justin, our waiter, he was attentive, engaging & knowledgeable! Will definitely be returning!
Delicious meal and amazing service. I would highly recommend Bistronomy to anyone.
The managers and owners are hands on and it shows! Everything is done well.
Amazing food, incredible top notch service. You can find a more perfect combination.
Had dinner on Valentines Day. This was my first time at this restaurant.
Overall experience was very good. I would definitely recommend Bistronomy to friends and family.
We love this restaurant. There was a small problem this time. The mussels were teeny, tiny...and some weren't opened. I have ordered mussels everywhere, here and overseas. I have never had these little tiny slivers.
The cassoulet was wonderful, the mousse was to die for. I liked the cocktail of the day which was sweet and sour.
Jeff was amazing.
The food and service was outstanding! We can’t wait to go back again!
Amazing. Food , service , cleanliness
Great Covid protocol
Will definitely be back
