We have been coming to Nick’s for many years - we love everything about it. Every time we come we see that he has made a new improvement to the outdoor dining. Food is always good!
It’s one of our favorite places to eat!

We sat inside though there is outside (heated) seating available. The service was super quick and the food, as always, was delicious and plentiful. We got a few extra meals out of it with the leftovers. :)

Lovely experience at a wonderful neighborhood gem! Nicks provides four star restaurant service, well prepared, delicious Greek food (including vegan options), well prepared cocktails and professional but friendly atmosphere. Most neighborhood restaurants could learn from their waitstaff/management who stop by just before your meal is served, DURING your meal, and after you’ve finished to check on whether you need anything throughout your visit! Too often, a diner is searching for someone to help with a beverage, napkin, water, not here. You’re treated like a guest!!!

We are fans of Nick’s Bistro for many years. Their Greek specialties are beyond compare and we always look forward to the many new recipes Chef Mario surprises us with whenever we come. It’s very often a whole mew culinary experience. It is definitely our go to place.

I ordered a Nick's Pick salad which was surprisingly very small for the price. The dressing was ok. Not what I am accustomed to when going to other restaurants. No Pita bread was provided throughout our meals which used to be automatic. My friends meal of salmon was very good.

Nick’s Bistro goes above and beyond. The added outdoor space is cozy with large Plexiglas panels separating diners. Overhead heating for when it gets cooler. The menu has been expanded and the food is very good. Also, prices are extremely reasonable. The service is outstanding.

I got sick . I had the soup and meatballs . I’m hoping it was just a fluke so I don’t wanna be to hard on the place because it was beautiful comfy outdoor seating with heaters and the staff was kind .

We ate inside for lunch (we were only table inside). Quallity of food was excellent and quite an extensive menu. Everything was enjoyable and i would definitely return! For eating rather late and it not being crowded, service was a little slow, but overall very efficient and attentive.

First time here. Food was delicious. I had the salmon over a Greek salad. We ate outside, the only way I'll dine, which was very comfortable and sheltered. The service was great too!.

The food was amazingly fresh. The service was wonderful. The restaurant was full, indicating it's wonderful reputation.
We sat outside which was lovely. The only issue was the noise level was extremely high. Perhaps it is quieter indoors but the outside seating was so loud that it was hard to talk without shouting.
Still, we would come back for the wonderful food and wonderful service.

Love to eat at Nicks Bistro. The food is always delicious and the service is great. We like to eat outdoors and they have a really nice set-up. Their grilled octopus is outstanding. So tender and delicious. The mousssaka is the best I’ve ever had. So authentic! And they make great martinis!

Had a new waiter. George. He was great. All of their waiters are. Had a new item for me, the deep fried Cornish hen. That was great too. Im glad they are able to continue to use the outdoor space. Restaurant was hopping. As always it was a fabulous experience.

Food and service were amazing as usual. We had sangria with brunch, and it was great. Seems like several good options on the menu, but I always gravitate to my favorite, the filet mignon eggs benedict!

This was a spiritual day for me after 20!yr. 9/11. Away from my day to day world at a place never before visited. The peace of mind it brought was worth it.

The appetizers were extremely expensive. I had the mushrooms stuffed with seafood. Two mushrooms for $13.50

The wild salmon over a Greek salad- the dinner portion not luncheon- was about 12 once’s in total and had a nice sized piece of baked salmon. $26 - but worth the price. Delicious.

Dessert was a nice sized piece of Apple Crumb cake. $9.00 but worth it.

I would definitely go back.
