    Prime rib on (Mondays only) was excellent and large food portion which could be enough for two. Good value but don't like their 4% surcharge.. they need to set prices where they need to be. We tend to avoid restaurants that persist in this practice so may not go back.

    Our dinner at Nick and Gs last night was truly forgettable. The only positive was the hostess, from there it was all down hill. My husband ordered a martini which took forever because they ran out of glasses and had to chill more. Is that truly a thing? Service was slow, but I don’t think that was the servers fault. They were clearly doing their best with what they had. The food was horrific. I sent my scallops back which were over cooked and yet the plate was barely room temp. The pasta was barely touched by my daughter and father who were too kind to send it back. The steak was ok, but that’s not saying much. We were offered dessert but literally sought out our check as quickly as possible so we could leave. We will never go back and have tried this place three times. 3 was not a charm. Avoid at all costs and go down the street for a real dining experience at Mille Fleurs.

    Prime rib was tender and most of the fat was not on it. Cesar salad was tasty. Green beans were good and were cooked. Wine was picked by the manager and I as good, and I am particular about the wine. Was great.

    Terrible! I had reservation and when I got there they said all the open tables are for reservations for others They wanted to sit us in sidewalk outside the restaurant. Their attitudes was take it or leave it. Finally we sat on high tables by the bar. The foods were coming one at a time and between the first plate and 6th plate was about 10 minutes . The same was with coffees and deserts.

    Had a nice dinner. The food was very good, although the entree came before we were half way into salads. Service was friendly. Next time we'll sit in the main dining room, which had nice, low lighting and enjoyable music. the lights over the tables in the bar ruined the ambience in the bar, way too bright and the tables are several inches too high for the chair height. but we'll be back

    Our second visit here and wow, what a difference a few months makes! We had one of the best waitresses we’ve ever had during the last visit. She was personable and went the extra mile. The food was great. This visit didn’t compare. We waited 45” for the entre after ordering it. The waiter was profusely apologetic and confessed that the order went to another table. The adjusted the bill and comped a glass of wine. OK, not his fault. The chowder was very good. Not the usual New England chowder but very good. The duck, however, was very salty. I mean VERY salty. Cooked well, crispy skin. I also noted that the restaurant was only half full. The entire waitstaff has changed since a visit about 6 months ago. I’m wondering if management or chef has changed? Overall a so so experience. We expected more.

    The musician was talented… but way too loud for such a small space. We had to yell at each other to be heard. The new salmon dish had terrible vegetables with it and the fish was overcooked. The chicken parmigiana was over cooked and the chicken added to a Caesar salad was under cooked. We eat here often, but will choose somewhere else next time

    We have dined here several times and each time is better than the last! The manager Phil welcomed us at the door and gave us a lovely booth to celebrate our anniversary! The food- ahi tuna with a delicious cauliflower rice with vegetables was outstanding as was the Ceaser salad! My husband had a delicious spaghetti and meatballs and the crème brûlée was outstanding! Our waitress Nadia was a delight as was Nic the busboy! Not to be missed! We can’t wait to dine again!

    Terrible. Slow. Lack of attention at the kitchen when we mentioned someone at the party was dairy free, they brought the fish with a very buttery sauce on top. After returning the fish and ordering a new one again without dairy, they brought it out raw, just cooked on the outside. 2 of the seared tunas were good, the third one tasted terrible, couldn’t eat it. Asked for sauce for the filet mignon on the side, they still poured it on top. Ordered a coconut sorbet, we got a lemon sorbet. Asked for asparagus as appetizers they brought them out as entrées. Couldn’t be worse. I guess they’re still in business because it’s the only restaurant open for early dinner. As soon as they open the new ones, they probably won’t last with this kind of service.
