Wild Salmon Over Greek Salad
Wild salmon filet, broiled and served over a large Greek salad
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
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.
As always excellent food and service
At, Nick's, we got the usual great food, and they've added non-Greek items to the menu. My wife had the angel hair pasta, and the sauce and the pasta was wonderful. Nick's had all the old favorites, plus great additions to the menu
Truly delicious grilled food. Our favorite Greek restaurant. Casual vibe.
This is our favorite restaurant. We live in Baldwin LI and drove 1 hr in traffic to have a great meal. The staff is the best. They are kind, attentive, respectful, and clean! The owners made the atmosphere safe and beautiful. They invested in their place of business because their patrons are most important to them. Lastly the food was just as fabulous as every time we dine there. I tried something new and still was pleased. Always more than enough in the serving size and prices are fair.
My family highly recommends everyone try Nick’s Bistro!
Been here numerous of times of there food never disappoints
Always reliable. Always delicious. Always friendly service. And frequently rotating specials keep the already sold menu interesting and fresh. Love this place.
First time but not last!! Waitstaff were wonderful, food delish, Pinot Grigio chilled and delicious!! Definite no cooking summer neighborhood dinner spot!
Great place as always
Service was so bad, random people serving, bartender, bus boy, completely ignored by the single person handling one floor by himself until we asked for our check that the only time he attended to our table. Trying to get attention of staff for something but as if they did see us. No follow-up like how's your food, used dishes were not taken until we are ready for the coffee.
As usual, the food is authentic Greek and delicious!! My guest gas the seafood salad, which was on point. It consisted of grilled seafood including octopus and shrimp over a nice salad. I noticed tomato and cooked peppers, feta cheese and a creamy balsamic dressing. I had my usual: salmon over a Greek salad with tzatziki! Service is good and the bartender is a great mixologist. Good craft cocktails! The outside dining has a lot more ambiance than the inside, due to Covid. If you want the best lobster roll ever, this is the place to get it!
Well worth the slight
Nick’s never disappoints! The fare is always fresh and delicious!!!
Had reservations and was seated promptly, was not rushed at all even though it was Mother’s Day and enjoyed brunch. Outdoor seating was pleasant and staff were attentive. Food was very good . Even ordered takeout that evening from there !
Gone twice in the past few months. Food is delicious and staff is nice, but both times I had to hunt someone down to let them know I was here for my reservation. There never seems to be anyone available to greet you and seat you even if you have a reservation. Servers are too busy to check if you want a drink refill. The food was delicious, although it was close to $60 for two salads and 2 sodas.
I had to leave. I had a reservation and had to wait 15 minutes (after I'd made a complaint) in order to be brought to the table. Then it total I'd spent 1.5 hours to have 1 soup, 1 portion of fried calamary (everything was delicious), had everything else wrapped & paid the bill (a total of almost $110 - including the $10 tip) for 4 people.
I really couldn't wait anymore, as I had to leave to work. But probably if I will had not asked for the rest to be delivered to the table wrapped ASAP, it'll had took another 2.5 hours. So if anyone has 1/2 day to spend on a pandemic, inside a restaurant...then by all means, this place will be their best choice.
Had a great time with friends eating delicious food.
It was great to be back in a restaurant with a very good friend. Very attentive wait staff.
