    Nick’s was better than ever. Everything was done perfectly and the staff were so thoughtful and accommodating. I had not been there in sometime so I didn’t realize they now have a really pretty covered outdoor seating area. Best dining experience I’ve had in awhile.

    The food was great, our waitress was helpful and attentive. Our one complaint is we were seated in the main dining room with the bar and it was very loud. The dining room and bar were not full or crowded but we couldn't hear our waitress when she was at our table, We asked to be moved to the back room and they did accommodate us. We were much more comfortable and able to have a conversation with the others in our party.

    The food and drinks, were ever, was delicious—I wish my stomach were larger. It's a tight space and somewhat loud for quiet conversation. And totally worth it for the full-view kitchen and thoughtful, locally-farmed ingredients.

    Was in town for a concert and saw Nicks on open table. Snagged a Sunday brunch reservation and then my local friend told me Nicks is fantastic. She wasn’t lying. I had the egg and cheese biscuit and it was to die for - as well as the strawberry peach crumble (both my fave fruits). Drooling. Had some of my friends coconut pancakes and they were to die for as well – didn’t even need syrup and I am a syrup freak. We left and then I get a phone call from a local Providence number – it was Nicks saying that one of us left our wallet behind. Thank you so much Nick’s for the amazing service, phenomenal food and trustworthiness. I can’t wait to come back again and again. And friends with allergies – my friend has an allergy and our server was very kind and making sure that she was taking care of and accommodated.

    Farm to table type cooking with creative dishes. Very diverse menu for all tastes. Good wine selection. Outdoor patio, inside traditional, or seating at the “bar,” which overlooks the kitchen. Fantastic!!!

    Chef Derek and our server Bobby couldn't have been better. Derek's food was spot on with every dish from the bolognese to the pate! Bobby is one of the best servers I have had in a restaurant. It is a must for me to stop in whenever I am in Providence.

    Food was outstanding. Service was slow; about a 35minute wait for food. But the servers were lovely, coming to give us a heads up that food would be along soon after 1/2 an hour.

    I am trying to find the words. First time visitor from Massachusetts and I would make the trip out just to dine again. The hospitality was welcoming, the atmosphere modern and the food, my goodness the food was DEVINE. My apologies for not recalling any of the staff's names however the date I dined in was Sat. 4/30 around 5pm. Thank you you for the wonderful evening.

    This place is a gem, don’t let its size fool you. The menu is always changing which I love, the atmosphere is perfect for couples or a small group of friends. The food is local fresh and delicious, the service will keep you coming back.

    An unassuming and casual place with good vibes. The service and food were excellent,except for the fish chowder which was too salty. The prices were fair for the quality. I would highly recommend. Would also recommend reservations.

    Nick’s on Broadway. Sigh. Satisfying in every way. Loveliest staff, sumptuous cuisine happily fine-tuned to accommodate one of us who are gluten and dairy free. Divine cocktails. Blood orange margaritas‼️ Outdoor dining superb. Our small dog happy as can be. We return again and again—every Providence visit, we anticipate Nick’s and are consistently delighted.

    Food was excellent, including a perfectly prepared piece of fish. We had two entrees to split and they came with the food already on two separate plates for both us, very nice. Hadn't been in a while, but highly recommend!

    Great dinner overall. Food was fantastic, had bread service, crudo, pate crostini and a biscuit sandwich. Everything was great beginning to end, had two kids with us that both loved their pasta as well. There is no printed kids menu, we did have to ask about kid food. Server was friendly, but forgot a couple drink orders. Support staff was very good. Awesome covered courtyard outside that was very comfortable.

    Service was unfortunately very lacking. Some drinks had to be ordered multiple times to come out. We would’ve ordered another round of drinks, but server never checked back. Upon finishing the meal we sat with stacked plates for almost 10 min before we stood waiting for the bill. Eventually had to go to the host stand to ask for bill.

    This was our first time dining at Nick’s. Upon arrival there was a sign stating to wait for check in but no one was there to greet us and it took several minutes before the hostess appeared and acknowledged us. During that time we saw three different servers and was not even given a nod or smile or someone will be with you shortly. The hostess who did finally come out was very pleasant but made no apology, she had to know she was absent from her post for some time. The server was friendly and cordial throughout but was nowhere to be seen for a coffee refill or to see if we needed anything. We asked the hostess for coffee and jam as she was walking past our table. Our meals were very good; though it took quite a long time before we got them. The chowder was excellent and the grilled cheese was done to perfection. My dining companion really liked her breakfast special though a side of jam on the plate would be a nice touch for the grilled biscuit. The third meal had was the RI Fish PO’Boy with the carrot parsnip onion soup and she loved her meal as well.
