Naomi took great care of us. Always a great time at Nicks. Definitely our once a week trip!
Great service. Love the outdoor seating. Cocktails were good and the Thai salad was fabulous!
I’m stunned at the experience from yesterday I love Nicks couldn’t wait to move back to LA so I could dine here. Well there was flies all over I spent majority of my time there fanning them away or making every unsuccessful attempt in doing so several employees saw us fanning them no one walked over to see how could they assist.
The food I am soooo disappointed the fried deviled eggs weren’t seasoned, and they were cold and tough
The shrimp taquitos which are normally to die for were dry and had no seasoning
The salad and “rib eye” was also gross cold and lacked seasoning as well. Not sure what happened besides Covid I’m just disappointed my first meal back home and it was not worth what we paid.
The server I asked for a Diet Coke every single time I saw him because he failed to bring it several times I asked for A1 sauce to jazz up the steak he forgot about that I asked for the check he said ok left for a long time came over took someone’s order left again I mentioned my meter was almost up 2 hrs and it was terrible I will not visit this location ever again I usually get the butter cake but I feared that would be disappointing as well I didn’t need that.
It was the perfect setting for us to get together. Our server was great!
Great service; just okay food.
Had a wonderful time at Nicks. Waiter was GREAT!
The ribs were the bomb! The Cajun (halibut) fish sandwich was wonderful as well.... we'll definitely be back!
Good friends visiting. I live. Ickes on 2nd I eat there often as I live in Belmont..always 5 stars 😊
Everything was wonderful until two people arrived and starting talking in very high-pitched tones. I could hear them down the street, laughing uproariously. Now I am a person who likes to laugh and enjoy my company, but this was outrageous. Her voice was so loud you could hear every word that came out of her mouth. I do not know what they can do about people who are so self-centered and obnoxious, people who disrupt the ambiance of what started as a very nice lunch. She is the type of person who thinks she is charming and funny and wants to share her stage presence with everyone in the establishment. Her friend was much quieter, but she needed a muzzle. We were two tables down and she crushed the voice across from me out. I do think it is acceptable for a server or concierge to gently ask her to lower her voice; she is disturbing others. God it spoiled everything else, the food was delicious, but I will gut check myself before doing it again.
Ryan, Hanna and food was delicious. Tuna tartare amazing, steaks flavorful and just the right temperature. My sister in law loved th e deviled eggs .
I loved everything about nicks on 2nd great customer service and the food was excellent
The food was amazing as usual, and so was the service. We were seated outside on 2nd street side and that was a bit noisy.
Fantastic food, steak melts in your mouth! Also baby back ribs were to die for! staff was great! Serve time a little long…but ok! Don’t leave without Buttercream cake!!! Amazing!!!
The food was definitely different and not as good as usual. New chef maybe?
Had a wonderful meal and great service from Sydney seated at the bar. Food is always perfect and Team Nicks is always incredible!
Amazing service and food. Would definitely keep coming back
One of our Long Beach destinations. Today was extremely loud but the food was very good. Will be back soon.
Service and lunch was fabulous. The music was too loud but they adjusted it for us.
We always love Nicks on 2nd.
Fantastic food and service. Will defiantly return.
I love Nicks. Great food amazing service.
I've never had a bad meal at any of Nick's locations. The wait staff is consistently friendly, accommodating and pleasant.
Terrific food and great service at very reasonable prices! One of us had the filet, the other the seabass. Both way better than we’ve had lately at a much higher price. Our server, Anthony, was also terrific; friendly and responsive without hovering. We had a great time!
Food was wonderful and the service, as always, was incredible. The new Nick’s menu items are a must taste … the roasted chicken is just amazing.
Enjoy your time at Nick’s at the bar top seating area for a great welcome back to normality!! Enjoy!
If you want a quieter ambience, ask for outside seating.
Food is outstanding, wine selection is good and the service was outstanding. Thank you all!
4 stars for service bc our server disappeared about the time we finished our meal and finally someone else noticed & cleared our plates. Maybe her shift was ended???
Server was great, and the restaurant has a nice vibe. However, the seared sea bass at $35 was wildly overpriced, as it was not seared, had no flavor and was plopped on a plate with spinach that had entirely too much garlic and was inedible. The mashed potatoes were ok. The veggie burger tasted like sawdust. Really, the cooking was appalling, and I have always enjoyed this place in the past. New chef, perhaps?
The food and service are fantastic. Always an enjoyable experience!
The steak is amazing, as always. Andy was amazing as well. We literally went here two days in a row this week, that’s how good it is. Definitely our once a week trip.
Went for Sunday brunch and we were not disappointed. I had chicken and waffles. As you can see by the picture it is quite large and very good. Both the chicken and waffles are crispy and very tasty!
Great food and service. Definitely going back again to try different food items and drinks.
We arrived at our reservation time and were seated promptly. Food, service were all terrific!
Fabulous as always! Can’t beat the fish sandwich, the Mac & cheese, and the bistro salad, but all of their food is amazing. Save room for the butter cake!
Lovely time as always at Nick’s. I mean, butter cake. IYKYK
Food and service always outstanding. It was more quiet than usual so we could hear each other talk; probably because it was lunchtime and the bar was not crowded.
Always awesome and love the food consistency. Back to full capacity so it’s nice reservations are back as well
We had been regular customers to Nick’s pre-covid. This was our first time back in 14 months. We used to eat there 4-6 x’s/mo. Although they were ALWAYS packed (no 6’ distancing) during reduced service, they now need to charge $15 for corkage fee. The first bottle used to be free. When we questioned this, the manager didn’t even have the manners to come discuss this with us but had the new waiter tell us. Yes, the food/wait staff are good. But we have other options on 2nd St and will now frequent those restaurants instead. Poor treatment of local/loyal patrons.
