Finally made it to Nick's for dinner on Friday. It was delicious... I only wish we could've found inside their super cute spot. Outside under a heat lamp worked tho!

We had cocktails - the ginger margarita was delightful. The butternut squash soup was savory - I loved the hints of cumin and paprika in it! We split the caesar salad... and I was pleased and surprised by the dressing which was tasty yet not the traditional creamy caesar dressing. I had the mushroom and parsnip risotto for dinner and he had the halibut. Both were full of flavor and perfectly cooked. Apple pie for dessert ended the meal.

Outside seating is limited - so get a reservation early, or join the neighbors who swung by to get takeout.

Great food and cute place!! Felt safe with covid precautions although the restaurant was empty when we arrived and our party of 4 ladies were seated right next to a family with 2 babies. Could have had more space between. Good variety of options on menu!

Been wanting to try this place for awhile. Happy I finally went! Food was absolutely AMAZING!! Felt very “Covid” safe-I haven’t sat indoors since March. We also had the option to sit outside, there were plenty of space heaters, but we opted to sit inside. Very cute ambiance-will definitely be a regular spot for me.

As with most people our age, my wife and I usually split items on the menu. Nicks had no problem with that request, and the meal and service made for a great dinner experience

I first went to Nick's soon after they opened a little more than a year ago now. Their Chicken Sandwich, hamburger, French Dip and Pan-seared chicken are all favourites of mine. The service is great and I love the space - "almost" elegant and very welcoming! And it is not just a neighbourhood place, I hear that people are coming from other parts of town!

We weren't sure what to expect for our first dinner out in over three months, but Nick and his crew blew us away with their delicious food, genuine hospitality and thoughtful safety precautions. Our cocktails were strong and refreshing, every bite of my wild halibut dinner was a party, and the flourless chocolate cake just sealed the deal.
Thank you Nick for opening your doors and for making out first night out a safe and memorable one.

Great food! Had the halibut- it was amazing. The hubby had the pan seared chicken- it was excellent (perfectly cooked- juicy in the inside and crispy in outside). Great ambiance! The best service!

By far one of the best options in the Madison valley/Madison Park area. Excellent food and drinks. I'll definitely be back for the halibut. Was impressed with their response to COVID.

On the feedback side, some of the food was very spicy (especially the shrimp cocktail).

These people are real professionals. Nick has brought a group of the best food creators to an environment mixed with superb service personnel, and definitely involved management. If Nick himself has not become restaurateur who you respect, and like,
I am sorry .

Nick's is our new neighborhood favorite place to get a quality meal, served cheerfully, and with fresh seasonal ingredients. You have to live a place where Nick himself is in evidence, where the waitstaff begins to recognize the clientele and the cocktail menu and menu change in a periodic basis.

We went for Valentine’s Day dinner. The service was very gracious. The food was wonderful and my wife had a special cocktail that she raced about.

Our server made an error on my order, but comped me a glass of wine. The owner also came out and made sure we were happy, comping us dessert as well. It was almost embarrassing to have such a fuss made over such a small thing, but that attention to service turned a minor negative into a huge positive.

We will be back.

If you are looking for a neighborhood restaurant that is probably always a decent meal. This is a place to go. You won't rave about the food but probably won't be disappointed, either.
