Everything was beyond perfect until we found a hair in our warm butter cake; and it was not ours.
My husband is white with short hair and I’m black with extensions. The hair belonged to a white female.

Other than that, it was exceptional.

We have eaten at Nick’s many times as a casual date night. Due to previous experiences we decided to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday at Nick’s. The food was good as usual. What came as a surprise is that they don’t send anything for birthdays. Or server brought a dessert menu and insisted we get something for the birthday, so we did. When we got the bill we noticed that the dessert was not complimentary. We don’t expect free things, but this is the only restaurant I’ve dined at that charges you for a birthday dessert.

We will still come back, but I won’t be asking to go on my birthday.

The food is always great but I wasn’t happy that our entrees came out almost right after our appetizers. Our waitress and the manager were very gracious and understanding and took the entrees away until we finished our appetizers. I really appreciated them handling it the way they did. By the way, their Cioppino is always the best!

The hostess was not on her game at lunch on September 7. When greeted the hostess could not find the open table reservation. When the reservation was eventually found, the hostess stated that because no specific table had been requested in the reservation there would be a 20 minute wait. Then she escorted us without saying a word to the outside patio where we did not wish to sit. A booth was open inside and after asking if we could have that booth, the hostess eventually relented and seated us.

Unfortunately the in attentive service was also given by our waitress. It was difficult to get her attention to order wine or food.

Next has long been a personal favorite not only at its Long Beach location but in Laguna Beach as well. However,As the number of restaurants grow the service becomes less and less professional.

Always love the service. At times it seems they try to hurry you a bit but if you ask for more time to decide/order/eat, it’s ok. Good portion size.

This is likely the finest upscale bistro in Belmont shores. Always a fine dining experience. Spinach dip for appetizer and share the butter cake for desert.

Good food, great service and a happening place. I had the ribs prepared with a lot of love and individual effort by the staff. My wife had the Bistro Plate , a petite filet, and a a great soup and kale salad. Our waiter was very attentive and efficient. Can't wait to go back!

The only criticism I have about the service is that my guest and I were passive-aggressively asked to leave after our meal. It happened twice by two different servers. My guest and I had sat at the table for about 2 hours, so I understand if someone was in need of the table; however we could have been asked more graciously. Numerous ways to ask to be moved to the bar. Dirty looks are not the way.

One of our favorite places to eat in Belmont Shores in Long Beach. Always great tasty food and above par service. Terrific atmosphere...can get a little loud at times in the dining room. Must eats...Chicken fried steak, Asparagus fries, and their famous Prime rib dip sandwich. Awesome drinks and appetizers as well as their famous Butter cake for dessert. Outstanding breakfasts on weekends. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️... in my book

I’ve always love coming to Nick’s.. however, for some reason there were pests ( flies) that were annoying to swat off ourselves and around our food. Overall, I will always praise the service, ambience and food. Just control the pests. Thanks

Thinking back to Saturday...

1. I personally did not care for our waitress - no personality, no mention of soup of the day.
2. Our table-for-2 (corner patio) is a bad spot - constant foot traffic. On this afternoon, the sliding glass doors were open right at the "apex", if you will, and right next to our table. There was no other entry via sliding doors open for servers and guests.

Thumbs up for this choice from all in our group. I had been to the Nick's in San Clemente and Laguna Beach and this one did not disappoint. Parking is a bit challenging on the streets but we managed. Great job!
