    Awesome menu. We sat at the “kitchen bar,” and watched the “dance.” The staff was like a fine-tuned machine. Service was on point and the food was perfectly prepared.

    Arrived at the restaurant at 10 AM when they open with a reservation. The host decides to put us in a back room with no one else when the main dining room had only one party seated. We asked if we could move to the front room and was told they would to look into it. The host continue to seat people until there was no one left to seat. Then she said she would review the reservations to see if she could seat us in the main dining area. After her review, we were moved to a table in the main dining area. After sitting there for an hour, we were asked to move to the bar to continue our conversation. Looking around the restaurant, there were several tables open. I will say the food was mediocre, the server was great, and the host was just nasty. I feel there’s no reason to return for brunch in the future. Julian’s down the street is a better experience and food is good. Two thumbs down.

    Absolutely delicious, I had the eggs Benedict and the biscuit was the best biscuit I’ve ever had. Three of us at our table had Benedict, and each enjoyed it. Two had the steak and eggs and said the steak was cooked perfectly, the potatoes were crispy and flavorful. The sausage was one of a kind, homemade deliciousness! If you haven’t tried this place due to their pricing, just know it’s worth every dime!

    Food was good, service was okay. We made a reservation but was seated in a separate room in the back. Not happy at first about it, felt weird but, became better once more people were seated on that side.

    We had a lovely time and a great meal. Especially recommend the Crudo small plate and the butternut squash risotto. Our servers were really friendly and helpful. Nice sitting right next to the open kitchen and watching food prep. It's been a couple of years since we'd gone to Nick's, but I think we will be going back more regularly.

    My husband said to make sure I used the words “lovingly prepared.” We expected a good meal here—instead we had one of the BEST we’ve ever had. Every dish was prepared perfectly and plated beautifully. I had the black beans/eggs brunch combo….spiced to perfection. He had the fish/corn chowder and fish sandwich—magnificent. And we split the gingerbread bread pudding, which managed to be slightly dense yet fluffy at the same time. We had it with vanilla ice cream that was real French vanilla. We live hours away from Providence but will definitely return whenever we’re anywhere remotely nearby!

    As always, dinning at Nick's is such a wonderful treat for the taste buds that it's almost spiritual! If you have to have ONE meal in RI, this is it! Local sourced fresh products, deliciously and expertly seasoned gourmet dishes and great services. NEVER DISAPPOINTED.

    The food was amazing but the service was terrible. We had reservations and waited an hour for our food. The server didn’t check on us during that time and we would have liked another cocktail while we waited and an update would have been nice. I would recommend not sitting in the back because they seem to forget about you back there. It’s a shame because the food is so, so good.

    I was kind of disappointed! I have being there before COVID and I was very happy with the food and service! This time was sadly not impressed with anything at all. The food was mediocre! The place did not like very clean? Too small, not enough personnel! Food took too long to come.

    Dinner for two on a Thursday night. By the standards of many other meals we’ve had at Nick’s before, the food underwhelmed on this occasion. Entree’s also took quite a while to come out. Kitchen may have been understaffed? Hope this was a blip and not a trend. Service and staff were lovely. We were out celebrating a birthday, and got a complimentary champagne toast - very generous, and appreciated. Tasty cocktails, and an excellent wine recommendation. The patio out back was very comfy, and has wonderful ambiance. Just missed on the food!

    The food was fantastic, even just the bread and butter were perfectly toasted and laced with honey. The service was absolutely lovely. I felt very tended to AND entertained. Y’all the fish on lentils was divine, the fish so tender, the veggies fresh and a very fascinating combination that worked well together. Finally, I got the dark chocolate panna cotta. You have to too. So so good.

    Nicks has always been one of our favorite spots when we are in town. This time, not so much. We were early for our reservation and eventually were seated early. Our server came, and we ordered. Our coffee was refilled 3 times and still no food. After about 40 minutes a different server came and gave us samples of their frozen wine slush to help us pass the time. Ten minutes later my husband asked a passing server if she would send our server over. She told us our server had left for the day……. She offered to go check on our food. She never came back. After 57 minutes had passed from the time we ordered, we got up to leave. We informed the hostess of the problem. All she could do was say sorry. We were sorry,too. Luckily, there are so many other good restaurants in Providence.
