We always enjoy coming to Nick's, whether for brunch or dinner. Our meal of stuffed shrimp and rice pilaf was delicious.

Used to come here over a decade ago and always loved their food. As I was back in town for my birthday I decided to make reservations with a friend for my birthday dinner. The food was, as I remembered, delicious. More importantly, everyone there was warm, welcoming, friendly, and attentive. Being sung happy birthday with a sparkler in my cake could have felt awkward but they managed to make me feel at home and celebrated. Thanks for a wonderful night.

We sat in their outdoor seating area. No one does this better than they do. We felt safe, with air flowing and yet not cold because of their overhead heaters. They put plexiglass between tables and a curtain at the back where the waiters would serve you that you can keep open or closed. If you keep it closed, they give you a buzzer so you can ring for service. Like I said, no one does it better here in Queens! I recommend them very highly - great food, great service, and the feeling of safety during these difficult times!

After messing up my order, the waiter was appropriately apologetic. However, nothing was taken off the bill, nor was anything given gratis even though my corrected dish was served long after my companions’ dishes were served. The restaurant also used to serve complimentary dip with warm pita to everyone. That’s no longer done. Not a great way to treat loyal customers.

Had another delicious dinner at Nicks. The grilled octopuses an appetizer is always a winner. We also had mousakka which was delish and a special which was stuffed green peppers. Also yummy.
They installed plexiglass dividers between the tables to keep diners separated which makes everyone feel safe. The outside area is also heated.

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.

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.
