Wild Salmon Over Greek Salad
Wild salmon filet, broiled and served over a large Greek salad
Grilled shrimp, octopus and calamari over mesclun greens with red and yellow roasted peppers, tomatoes, onions and feta cheese with our house vinaigrette dressing
Great place to eat, delicious food and servers were very nice. Will definitely return.
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.
Food is always delicious at Nicks!
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!.
They turned down my reservation
Delicious Greek food and ample outdoor seating. Service was painfully slow.
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.
The host was so welcoming and the food as always delicious! Wonderful service by the waiters too.
Aside from the delicious food, Nick's staff was extremely attentive and nice. Highly recommend it.
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!
Service staff was extremely pleasant. Food was great. Guests must be patient. Full restaurant. Bar and kitchen staff tried to keep up. Overall a very positive experience.
Everything from start to finish was fabulous . Highly recommend
Food was excellent. Service was courteous and prompt. Very nice experience for outdoor brunch.
Food is very good and staff is very nice. They honored my request to sit away from Metropolitan Boulevard, so it would be less noisy. Consistently excellent food.
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 great
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.
Lovely outdoor space, warm welcome, inviting service. Very good menu of fresh fish and Greek Mediterranean specialties. Moderately priced drinks and wine. We had not been for a year and we were very happy to be back !
My friends and i love this place, good greek food and nice staff
Just a simple meal, delicious wine and good service after a long day
Try the specials, the octopus, the steak and the lemon chicken. Wait staff is friendly and courteous. Came back several times to refill our water glasses.
Host was very welcoming; sat outside in a very well designed outdoor area. Food and drink were all very good - a couple of dishes by their appearance were clearly in the broiler a few seconds too long but still tasted great. Service was a bit confusing in a good way -seemed that all of the waiters attended to all of the tables so they kept coming up to ask how we were doing.
IF you haven't been, go for a nice lunch or dinner - you won't regret it!
I looked at dozens of Greek restaurant websites all over Queens until I finally settled on Nick's Bistro - and I was delighted at my final choice! Party of five, outdoor seating, nice setting, Covid safe. The waiters were friendly, funny and efficient. The menu selection diverse for the meat eaters and vegetarians in our party. Well-sized portions, reasonably priced and most important, the food was delicious! This is now one of my go-to spots for dinner and dates.
Graduation CELEBRATION reservation, superb drinks & food & service. Thank you to Chef Mario & remarkable staff
First visit, looking forward to going back
Calamari was like eating rubber bands Service was very good little pricey but was a quick stop off probably wouldn't go again
Grest food and great service!
First time having dinner at Nick’s Bistro and will 100% return! Having food allergies often makes dining out a difficult experience for me as I have to worry about whether a restaurant will be accommodating as well as making sure that what is on my plate is safe for me to eat. When my food was brought out to me, it was checked by the incredibly nice person who was serving myself and my family, to make sure that my food was safe for me to eat. There aren’t enough words to describe how reassuring that is for a person with food allergies! And it wasn’t just the service that was wonderful, the food was delicious! I wish I tried this gem much sooner than I did!
Food and service were good
A great local place. The specials are the best. The lobster roll was not mayonassey but had a lemon flavor.
It was beautiful
Great food and staff very friendly and service was outstanding!!!
Loved everything. Great prices for the food you receive. The drinks are great. Overall great place to eat and hang with family.
We’ve been to Nick’s before and have been wowed by the service and the food but not too much this time. The service was very poor, didn’t even get refills on our drinks as our server was very distracted (the restaurant wasn’t busy). The gyro meat was very oily and the shrimp was very salty. The calamari was perfect as usual but the other issues were very disappointing.
My wife and i love this place. Great food and workers.
They make you feel so welcome
Family dinner - delicious food and good service. Always enjoy Nick’s Bistro!
Amazing!! The food, the service, the attention to detail.
Everyone's food was absolutely delicious - and great vegetarian options too.
The outdoor dining area was beautiful and comfortable. It made you feel like you were on vacation. The service was great. The food was excellent and we enjoyed a bottle of their house wine.
